NOW LET THE BAND PLAY.
KANSAS CITY'S IXD03IITAnLE BALL
TEAM SCORES A VICTORY.
At a Moment 'When It Was Least Ex
pected the Bines Defeat Detroit
by a Score of 3 to 5-Shoni
All Things Possible.
Word was received at nightfall in this
town yesterday that the Kansas City Blues
had n on a gamo of baseball. The Informa
tion spread like wildfire, and Immediately
there was Intense excitement. Crowds con
gregated about the bulletin boards and dis
eased the report In all Us phases. The
people were unprepared for tho shock at
tendant upon the announcement of the
etrango intelligence, and many refused to
give it credence. It was such an Improba
ble stcry that much corroborative evidence
was needed before it would pass current
for fact. All night long tho newspaper of
fice, telephones were besieged by excited
people iho asked for particulars of the ac
cident. About midnight a man, with a voice
husky with, emotion, called upon The Jour
nal to ask where he couKl purchase a large,
fccrvlceablo telescope, lie said he wanted
to uso it in looking for the millennium.
Here Is the story of the eighth wonder of
Detroit, Mich., June 11. Special.) And It
came to pass that, after wandering in the
wilderness for thirteen days, the Blues
from Kansas City, which is at the mouth
of the Kaw. captured their first game. And
they lifted up their voices In rejoicing.
Prior to to-day they had engaged In
twelve battles, and sustained grievous de
feat in each. To-day's victory came as
balm in Gllead, and Manager Manning was
as pleased as a society belle with her debut
on the stage. It was all owing to a young
ster named Daniel Friend, who Is a left
handed pitcher, and once upon a time be
longed to Chicago. During eight rounds ha
held tho Wolverines down to three scat
tered hits, as widely separated as Populisllc
election returns. The visitors only found
Thomas In three innings but In two they
managed to bunch their hits, two of which
were of the order designated as doubtful,
"tt ithal, tho score was closo and exciting.
During tho early morning hours a heavy
rain fell, and about the time the game' was
called the skies looked so threatening that
the management Issued rain checks. The
nun. however, came out. and the game was
finished without incident. Hints was pre
sented with a base on balls In the first, and
went to third on Connaughton's bad throw
to first, and scored on McCauIey's long fly.
Pitcher Friend is credited with a home run
in the third. Ho sent up a long fly that
)ungan set sail for, but only reached, while
running sideways, with one hand. Friend
sprinted to third and halted there. Dun
pan, meanwhile, was unable to And the
bail, which had landed in a mud puddle,
and was partly hidden from view. Friend
ran home. It was one of the queerest home
runs ever made on any field.
Detroit did not get a hit until the fourth;
then McCauley touched off a pretty ground
er alcng tho left line for two bases, but got
no further than third. Kansas City helped
Itself to another tally in the fourth. Mc
Vlcker hit, but was forced at second by
Gettinger. Burnett misjudged Bannon's fly,
and ran in on It when he should havo gone
the other way. It turned into a threebaser,
and scored Gettinger. Burnett had favored
Bannon. and Bannon returned the compli
ment in the seventh, when he misjudged
Burnett's fly. Hercules going to third. lie
unwisely was coached homo on Whistler's
chert fly to left, which Bannon nailed and
sent like a rifle ball to the home plate, com
pleting a pretty double play. A base on
balls to Menefee, two passed balls, and
O'Rourke's outfield fly sent In tho Blues'
third run. Detroit opened on Friend sav
neely in tho ninth. NIchoI and McCauley
hit. the former scoring on Burnett's fly to
center, but McCauley died at third because
a hit to bring him home could not be found.

Callahan tems to be Chicago's most ef
fective pitcher. Griffith was touched for
sixteen hits yesterday at Philadelphia.
Grand Rapids' overwhelming defeat of
Milwaukee yesterday takes some of the
edee off of Kansas City's losses there.
Kansas City has won thirteen games, but
lost tmrty-tnree in uoing h. .nayoe tne
unlucky number will not be a bad Jonah to
St. Paul made eight errors yesterday.
Th, rtnl,- tnms that nlaved errorless ir.im
in tho Western and National Leagues lost
Breitensteln. the alleged $10,000 beauty,
earned a part of his purchaso price when
he defeated New York yesterday, with Ru
sle In the box for the Giants.
It Is said that Rockford, In tho AVestcrn
Association, has signed an Indian called
Buck Heart. He is no relation to the Kan
sas City Indian called AVeak Heart.
It is said that O'Rourke cost Manager
Manning J2S0. Ho Is putting up a good
fielding game at third, and hitting the ball
abt ut as often as the majority of the mem
bers of the team.
Second B&reman Dlllard, of Nashville. In
the Central League, will probably replace
Hlnes at second In Detroit. Hlnes will be
shifted to the field and Sammy Nlchol may
adjourn to the bench.
Milwaukee writers "think they think" St.
IauL Columbus. Milwaukee and Indianap
olis too strong for the other teams in the
league. There's a long season ahead and
plenty of time to bemoan the weakness ot
thi second division teams after they fall in
their efforts to climb a little higher up the
ladder. Don't be In a hurry with your com
plaints. Thus far Tommy Bannon hasn't dropped
a fly ball in the outfield at Syracuse, and
he hasn't played in a game in which he did
not make one or more hits. He is leading
the team In stealing bases.
Pete Cassldy was fined yesterday not by
Ebrlght, however, but by a police magis
trate. After the game on Tuesday some of
the gamins twitted the first baseman on his
attack of blind staggers which lost the
Millers the frame, and Pete turned loose
some profanity. A police officer Instructed
him to report at tho police court the next
morning. Peter was there, and it cost him
a "A"." Indianapolis Journal.
A crowd of half-dazed fans were standing
In front of the bulletin board at Eleventh
and AValnut streets when the score stood 3
to 1 in the seventh Inning yesterday, confi
dently expecting to see a 4 or 5 or 6 marked
up to the credit of the Detroits before the
game closed. A small, business-like man
came bustling down the street, glanced at
tha score, paused, looked again, drew out
his watch, noted the hour, and then, turn
ing to the crowd, exclaimed: "Lets all
pray for rain."
Cleveland papers are beginning to "guy
their team. One of them says: "McAllis
ter is a valuable utility man. He can carry
eight bat bags at once." Another intimates
that McAleer played one game and
wan Immediately "Charley horsed:" then
adds: "Isn't it time now to unwrap the
spice cloths from McGarr and set him up?
The Cleveland AVorld says: "Cuppy has a
sore arm. AVIlson's feet are asleep. Young
has a wooden wing and McDermott is wild.
Pap and Gear are pitching quoits at the
ball grounds and Powell is about to bo
hanged for playing Sunday ball."

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA.
Th success of John Philip Sousa may
really be called phenomenal. It Is not only
great, but it is unbroken by a single fail
ure. He is the leading bandmaster of the
...-.- .Via mnt Twimilar composer of
band music and has written what promises
to be the most succcssiui Amenrau im.
of a decade. In the artistic world It Is rnre
enough for one to succeed In the superla
tive degree in a single line of endeavor, but
Mr. Sousa has attained pre-eminence In
three distinct departments oi rousit.
After witnessing a presentation of i.1
s--nto whtpii w.na pivpti at the Coates
opera house last night by Mr. DeWolf Hop
per ana nis compuur. " jvumu .-
r-s. nnnn nn fhnt It mUSt be SOmeWhat
embarrassing for Mr. Sousa to determine
which line ot effort should receive his most
devoted attention. It is manifest, however,
that, successful as ho has been in band
direction and band music, his permanent
reputation will be most Denentea ay op
eratic composition. ...
Taking up a libretto that Is pleasing and
entertaining, but rather conventional nnd
not strikingly meritorious, and whose only
special fltnejs for treatment by this com
poser is its military theme. Mr. Sousa
wrote a scoro that has such a plentitude of
popular spirit and such a distinction of
style as to stamp It as n decidedly original
work as well as one that will compel at
tention as long as It is adequately pre
sented to the public. While he did not for
get that he was writing for n low comedy
star, he made few concessions to the tri
fling spirit that particular precedent and
general custom might have strongly sug
gested to him. The score is really better
suited to a high class romantic opera than
to the burlesque story around which it Is
written. Yet most of the musical features,
especially the chorues, several of the part
songs and most of the orchestration, are so
sweeping in rythm, and so brilliant In de
sign as to dim the Incongruity that would
otherwise be apparent between book and
Naturally the march movement dominates
the opera. Mr. Sousa Is not only most suc
cessful In this style of composition, but it
represents Ms strongest hold upon the
public. The "El Capltan" march, which Is
tho musical theme, is played and sung In
its entirety as the finale of the second act.
It makes a magnificent chorus and Is the
great hit of the opera. It had to be re
peated and won many recalls for the prin
cipals and the star. Other particularly
meritorious numbers were the tenor aria
nnd choru, the soprano, tenor nnd con
tralto trio with chorus. Hopper's "El Cap
ltan" song, all of the flrst act; the soprano
aria and the quartette of the second act,
and the tenor aria of the last act.
The opera Is mere beautifully staged and
costumed than anything elso Mr. Hopper
has presented. The scenes and the tab
leaux aro so effective that they elicit fre
quent applause. ........
Mr. Hopper has a character to his liking
and to the public's taste, even If it Is the
conventional coward pretending to be a
bloodthirsty brave. Although he Indulges
in a good deal of buffoonery, he depends
less upon physical demonstration than
formerly, and has occasional touches of
subtlety. He is immensely amusing in the
title character, and enough good music
falls to his lot to satisfy the desire to hear
his big- voice. He is singing well, too.
The supporting company Is a most ex
cellent one, the chorus being particularly
strong and attractive. No such chorus has
been heard in this city In many a day.
Mr. Stanley, the tenor, has Improved very
much since his last appearance here. He
Is a better actor and a vastly better sing
er. Little Alfred Klein, the diminutive
complement to the towering Hopper, has
an excellent part, which he plays with
smooth face, his rolly-polly physiognomy
recalling the days when he played the
monk In "Falka. The new prima donna.
Miss Nella Bergen. Is of the statuesque
proportions of LIU Lehmann and has a
strong voice but Immature method and a
detractive self-consciousness. Miss Wal
lace plays a most mischievous character,
and her sweet personality and roguish eyes
give it a most wlnsomo diablerie. Miss
Wallace may not be ambitious, but If she
Is she must be more sincere. The persist
ence of her emlle which is pretty, as every
one knows and numerous bits of by-play
Indicate that she frequently thinks more of
herself than of the play of which she la
but a part. Miss Alice Hosmer Is success
ful, as she has been In so many other
operas, as the strong-voiced and strong
minded woman. Among the minor parts,
articular mention Is due the Scaramba ot
lr. Parr. ,
Last night's audience completely filled
the theater. It was a mest cordial audi
ence and won two speeches but no "Casey'
from Mr. Hopper. The comedian's new
speech Is pretty good and he Is letter per
fect In it. Altogether, "El Capltan." Mr.
Hopper and his company are a great com
bination. AUSTIN LATCHAW.

Elmer Foster, Itefnscd a License ia
Missouri Because Ills Father Did
Not Consent, Goes to Kansas.
Elmer Foster Is a young man who applied
at the recorder's office In this city on
Thursday for a license to marry Fannie
M. Moss. At that time he admitted that ha
was not 21 years old and a license was re
fused because he did not have his father's
consent. Miss Moss was but IS years old,
but her father accompanied her to the re
corder's office and gave his consent.
The couple went to Kansas City. Kas.,
yesterday and secured a license and wers
married by Probate Judge Herr. Young
Foster swore ho was 21 years old. The
Kansas law Is similar to the Missouri law
in prohibiting the Issuance of a license to
persons under age. unless the consent ot
parents or guardian is secured, under the
Kansas law this marriage Is lllegil. if
young Foster swore to what is not true.

That seems to be the case with the
women who are washing in the old way.
You can stand on your head, for instance.
Almost everyone could do it, if it were
necessary or desirable. But standing on
the feet is more natural and more sensible
and easier. So with soap and
Pearline. Everyone can wash with
soap many do. But washing with
Pearline is easier and moresensible.
The hard work of soap is neither
necessary nor desirable, r-veryonei
should give up the use of soap and should use Pearline. eo j
T rrxlr Peddlers and some unscrupulous e'occn will tell you, "tins (s ss
