RESPECTFULLY SOLICITS ME ■ Attractions at Both Theatres During the Coming Week. “Dorcas” at the Opera House on Election Night and “A Breezy Time” at the Graud—The Bills During the Past Week—General News and Comments on Matters Pertaining to the Stage. Manager Roister offers as the attraction to patrons of the Opera House on election night, tho charming operatic comedy, “Dorcas,” by Harry and Edward Poulton, authors of "Erminie” and "Niobe.” Dor cas” is a comedy set to music, an opera without a chorus. The story is rather complicated to admit of condensed repeti tion. It is unpretentious and operatic-ally Improbable, but It afTorded excellent op portunity for the Introduction of the vocal portions. The music is good from tlrst to last. Sometimes the stream of a few bars suggests a familiar air In “Erminie,” hut the melody straightway takes itself into original channels of new beauty. An ex change commenting upon a recent produc MARIK MTIXARD. tion. says: "AmonK the many mimhors ■which especially contend themselves to j the applause of the audience, and the on- | cores were noticeably frequent, were a drinking trio, the wedding bells quartet, a mezzo soprano solo. “My Heart I'll Save, in the tlrst act: In the second, several du ets. notably the chess panic and “Do As a Girl Would Do,” a concerted piece for seven voices, a minuet, and a solo for tenor. “My Love Is All For You:” in the third a bass solo, which received several encores, a comic sonp of real humor, “A Cup of Tea,” and the duet, “Love Me True.” The principals all possess pood voices and sinp with spirit and grace. "A Breezy Time.” which will be seen at the Grand Opera House three nights, com mencing Monday. November 2, has been described by Western critics as “a scream in three to fours.” Translated into Eas tern English, that means that the piece is a successful farce comedy in three acts. It is promised by the management that “A Breezy Time ’ is inherently funny, that it is illustrated by a cast of excep tional abilities, and that the scenery and costumes will be such as to catch and • please the eye. Fitz and Webster, the , stars of this bright farce comedy, have added many new and original features for . the present season. Both Managers Relster and Feinler have made arrangements for receiving election returns and announcing them during the performances Tuesday evening. In addi- j tion Manager Feinler announces an inno vation in local theatres. A Breezy 1 inte will bo produced at the usual hours in the early evening, and will be followed with a midnight performance. The curtain will rise at 11:20 o'clock. It is very likely ( that Mr. Feinler's enterprise will be ap preciated by local theatre patrons, many of whom will embrace the opportunity to witness a good comedy’ and at the same time learn how the people have voted. Jollie Nellie McHenry. “A Night in New York,” a merry conglomeration of music and dancing, which Is a new play Jolly Nellie McHenry is starting in this sea- , son, comes to the Opera House next I- rl- j day. November fith. It is by far the most tuneful of all the comedies now before tho public, and Is built for amusement purpo- , ses, which comes as near filling the bill as any entertainment on the road. It is full of pretty songs, graceful dances, and hu morous situations and, to use a stage term is replete with funny business. The skit j was written especially for Miss McHenry by IT. Grattan Donnelly, with a strong up-to-date flavor, showing New York life j as you see it at the French ball. The sup- ) porting company is said to be an unusually ; clever one. and includes John Webster, ; Charles Morrison. Charles Eastwood. Joe j Sparks. J. Hays. Miss Henrietta Lee. Miss Fanny Brooks. Miss Viola Roymore. La j Petite Rosa and others. The advance sale j opens next Wednesday at Houses' music ; store. Mr. Clay Clement delighted a large au diviw** at the Opera House Thursday even ing, with his artistic impersonation of Ba ron Hohenstnffon, in "The New Domin ion.” In other hands this might be a comedy part, hut Mr. Clement makes tlie hero of the drama a refined, h >norab!e gen tleman. His support was uniformly good. • Mv Uncle form New York.” with Harry Montague in the title role, played a two night's engagement at this theatre, and hardly deserved larger audiences than as sembled to witness it. A comedy which depends for its success upon suggestive lines and situations, does not deserve suc cess. The specialties which were intro duced. and which serve no other purpose than to lengthen the production are only mod Here at best. At the Grand "South Before the War,” the best of the class of plays which aim to depict negro life in the South in ante-bellum days, held the boards and di l good business, as usual.

Tho Campaign Closed in the Mon ongahela Valley by Two Large Meetings — Hooker and Dayton Addressed the Republicans at Fairmont—The Enthusiasm Shy When the Beer Run Out—A Mon ster Parade of Union District Horsemen—Mine Inspector D. W. Harr’s View of the Situation. Special to the Tto^ifUcr. Fairmont, W. Va., October 31.—The campaign in this county closed to-day with meetings by both thp free silver and gold standard forces. The free sil ver forces md in Boothsville, and join ed like forces from Harrison and Tay lor counties, and held a grand barbecue, being addressed by Fred* T. Martin, of Fairmont, and Hon. Lewis S. Newman, of Meund9ville, candidate for the State Senate. Two oxen, weighing 1 100 and 800 j pounds respectively fpd the large crowd after which they gathered in the pub lic square near the school house, where the addreses were made. J. M. Harr acted1 as chairman of the meeting, and introduced Mr. Martin as the first speaker, and he carried hi9 hearers into the greatest realms of en:husiasm by his humor and glorious predictions of ihe outcome of this battle between the people and the moneye.’ classes. Mr. Newman followed and after devoting a few words to the tariff, went for the gold standard with a vehemence. He also took up the national bank question and gave i' a fair discussion. At Fairmont the crowd equalled tho gre-at Wilson demonstration held' here two years ago. and from a platform erected on Main street, Hon. V\. R. Hooker, of New Y rk. and A. (J. Dayton, ididate for Congress, spoke. jefore the meeting a monster parade, .... .two uni med marching c'.uhs and 800 horse n from I nion district. partic.pating. thusiasm at this meeting reached a v high pitch, • hut quiced down r’htly about r ion. as all the beer in •n run out. and no more was received :il the four o’clock train, lo'h meetings were composed largely farmers, and judging from the .arge iwds at both places, every farmer 1 laborer in 'his section must have 3 asi e his work for a holiday.

Many Republican miners with whom I have a personal acquaintance, have openly stated their intention of voting the Democratic ticket straight, and say they are especially interested in the Congressional light be ing fought between Brown and Dayton. Judging front the portion of the State over which 1 have travelled, Democratic victory in this State is assured', with a majority ranging from 8,000 to IL’,000. The recent address of John McBride to '■the miners, asking thehi to vote against the gold standard, will doubtless have a great influence, as the miners all over the State are great admirers of this im portant personage in mining affairs.’’ Charles Arnold, a miner from Mineral county, who has always been a staunch Republican, was present at the meet ing, and stated his intention of voting for both Bryan and Brown. He says a large per cent of the miners with whom he has come in contact, are of the same opinion, and will vote the same ticket as he. - -o-—— it WASHINGTON. Washington.
