While waiting the appearance of a quorum
for the meeting of Council last night the sub

sewer, thould oppose the latter to the extent
of sending petitions to the legislature agaiust
the passage of the bill now pending providmg
for the necessary issue of bonds. The ex

Salsbury's Troubadours in their bright far
cial comedy, "Three of a Kind," will appear
at the Grand tomorrow (Saturday) evening.
The New York Graphic says: "The Third
Avenue Theater was packed on Monday night
with certainly an appreciative audieoc. The
new trifle' of the Troubadours is, as the pre
vious trifles have been, a thread on which to i
string their very pleasing peculiariiies, and it
answers its purpose well. Miss Nellie Me
Henry continues to be as effervescent as a
bottle of yeast, and no amount of excessive
explosion serves to diminish the supply. The
young lady on Monday night eang and
played with more than the excellent gush of
her previous visits, and grew belter as the
evening wore on, a song with a jolly laugh in
it winaing the audience completely. Mr.
Nate Salsbury is the othei conspicuous char
acter in the piece, bi9 acting is good and his
singing in a new version of 'Johnny, Fill Up
the Bowl," is very funny indeed. It is safe to
say that 'Three of a Kind' will be given to no
slim houses during the present engagement."
"The Galley Slave." This great play ot
Bsrtley Campbell will be produced at Black's
Opera House tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon

gether with the intrinsic merits of the piece
itself, have made for it such a phenomenal
succcs in the dramatic world. "The Galley
Slive" is considered not only Mr. Campbell's
greatest play but one of the finest melo
dramas of modern times. The plot is intense
ly intere-ting, and the play, which 13 in five
act', is full of strong situations and pictur-
esque grouping', beautiful scenery and mag
nificent and costly wardrobes are worn by the
ladie". The Chicago Times pronounces this
to be the greatest play of the 19th century.
The organization is a strong one and is
acknowledged by the Chicago and St. Louis
papers as entitled to rank among the best
traveling. Admission 10, 15 and 25 cents.

"Grandma," said a spry five-year-old,
