Any one who scans the newspapers of
;he time will discover that the foremost
iopics and the most prominent affairs as
to space in many journals are theatrical.
I'ho press teems with them, society ia rife
with them, and "professional" ambition
md renown are regarded as the most
andable and enviable. The rebound in
popular estimation from the old time
severity in regard to players to the present
ibsurdity of prominence, is not a healthy
ndioation of publio sentiment.
In some issues of our best leading papers
throughout the oountry reprehensible
waddle concerning singers and actors

$be in deference to a public desire for

in any proportion to the value reoeived.

probably unprofitable. The com

tho reception of Ellen Terry, a woman of
several husbands.

In Chicago tbe people made fools of
themselves over this gifted and queer brace

■ureole of glory and genius in its sun

At the approach of these sublime mor

guarded portals and bids them
welcome. Why? You'd be at a loss to

After dusk in the city of New York no
woman of any Btaadiug whatsoever will be
allowed in any first olass restaurant with
3ut a male escort. And yet no hotel or
restaurant in the oountry would refuse to
receive Patti and Nioolini, aye, and give
them royal attention.
Why? Tiie only answer is that in the
lirst instance it is a philanthropic desire
to shut lone women out of harm's way, and

'.he Empress of Russia in all the material

many would change places with her for
the "perishable allurements—and after
them —what?
In her regnant artistic sway the press
has had a manifest hand. Paris and
London journals have for years expa
tiated upon, and lauded with irresistible
eloquence the incomparable beauty of
Patti's singing, and the admirable finish
of her acting. .Leave the press out of the
consideration, and perhaps the auooess
wouldn't border dangerously on luxury.
The papers harp upon this stage theme
in al! its variations uutil the most reluc
tant memory is foroed to note the distaste
ful details. You take up your favorite
paper—and tho first one who
monopolies an undue shiraof notice—free
advertising—is Lawrence Barrett. His
agents send neatly printed proof slips to
the New York papers with the request
•' please notice." This is the sample:
Several times has Mr. Barrett crossed tlie sea
for pleasure, and each tone he has visited Lon
don, where ho has been a favorite guest ut sun
dry of tho prominent clubs and in society, and
has frequently met the Prince of Wales.
Jiot only that, but it is whispered that the
Princess of Wales has taken an unusul interest
in him and that her patronage is the prospective
guarantee of Ins brilliant triumph in the British
capital. Among ths few i.f Mr. Hanett's friends
vrhn are aware of this rumor opinions differ
whether the Princess is more charmed with him
personally or histrionically; or whether, piqued
at the Prince's attention to American ladies, she
has found a worthy subject aud thinks to retal
iate in kind.
The World did notice ia a vein not at all
to the actor's liking, and he works off his
indignation in the New York Tribune, wax
ing very ferocious over the " hounding of
disreputable papers."
This is ono chapter devoted to Mr. Bar
rett. The next deals with his insulting
meanness to George H. Boker, whose play
Francesoa di Rimini has been the great
success of Barrett's stage career. He has
made large sums of money night
ly by it, and he begrudged
the author tho small royalty agreed upon,
and quarrels over an addition to it.
Of all the men who tread tho boards,
Barrett is the least liked and respected be
«i._3B6 of his paltry, tyranioal ways. Had
he been treated as he treats his subordin
ates, success would never have come to
him. No generosity of applause ever mel
lows him into p. partnership of it with any
associate in the plaudit-causing scene.
His "cut" of George H. Boker would be
funny if it were not so surprising. It is
within the memory of not altogether the
oldest inhabitants when Larry Brannigan
would stand hat in hand before any of the
Boker family.
His insolence ia born of the generosity
of the press, whioh in many instanoes, no
tably the New York Tribune, would make
Mr. Brannigan Barrett or Barrett
Brannigan believe himself born for the
purple—if not in it.
A story went the rounds not long ago
about Mr. Barrett's insisting upon the
landlord of some hotel taming George H,
Pendleton out of the best room beoause it
had been sooured by the Barrett represen
tative in advance of his master's coming,
and in that unlucky interval pending the
potentate's arrival Boniface had audac
iously given it to the Gentleman George,
who not mouthing and grimacing and pos
turing at so much a night, never presumed
uponjmy prerogative Bave "the grand old
support as an"English snob actor. "Here's ;
a lucky chance to inflate, and some friends j
write a well advertised "defence," by
informing a receptive world that i
the traduced actor is "a member of the :
well known family of Savin, a nephew of j
the historian Grote and a university man." ;
Now this sweeps the board—although it
soems to have taken a great deal of dis- j
tinction to play second man in Henry lr- I
ving's oompany. He is like Cleopatra's ;
pearl in a glass of 'alf and 'alf.
"Why, "says Mrs. Harris," no]wonder ex
tremists talk ot the prospective downfall '
of royalty in England when the Prince of
Wales is scarcely more than an advertis
ing medium for half the women on the
stage. "Not that he is valuable as a patron
of art—'tia the insinuation that's valuable
and that shows that a "noble school of art"
the stage ia apt to encourage* and the
press to wreak it 3 brain upon. By the
way, I wonder if those two young men
who wrote of the full jeweled and fine
nerved Morris were remembered by her to
the enriohing extent of one each of those
"souvenir" photographs?
Another Stay of Proceedings Hart.
From yesterday's developements it looks
as though the requisition proceeding
against Daniel B. Vermilye had about
made a quietus. A telegram was received
by Attorney General Halm yesterday,from
the district attorney of New York,advising
him to drop all proceedings in the case
until further advices were received from
the empire state. Thia is regarded by
the friends of Mr. Vermilye as practically
ending all further attempts at prosecution
in the matter. In pursuance to instruction?
Jndye Wood, to whom the ca.-e was re
ferred, adjourned the hearing until Tuesday
morning at 10 o'clock, when the matter
will be linally disposed of.
A GnoBK reporter mot Dateotive Heidel
berg at tho Merchants hotel yesterday af
ternoon, and asked how he liked the turn
affairs had taken.
"It suits me well enough," he replied; :'if
thero is anything wrong I want to know it,
and if the indiotment is not straight
it is only just that Vermilye
should have a hearing. Of course 1
don't want to take a man unjustly, but if
my papers are right I want my man. J
suppose the adjournment was brought
about by Mr. Gorman, who is in New
York, and by Tuesday the matter of the
indictment should be fully investigated.
I am perfectly satisfied, only I should pre
fer bbing in New York, and shall return as
soon as possible."
Mr. Heidelberg is the beau ideal of a do
teotive and is just the kind
of a man one would suppose
inspector Byrnes, the celebrated
chief of New YorK, would select to make
up his staff. He is keen eyed, unassum
ing, genteel and polite as a floor walker,
cool, nervy, intelligent and always self
Private advices were received by a St.
Paul geDtleman last night from New York,
intimating that the requisition had or
would bo withdrawn. In this event, whioli
it is hoped is true, a full and complete vin
dication will have been made to the unju»t
aspersions oast upon the character of
Mr. Vermilye who, his friends think, hss
been the victim in this last action, of a
conspiracy oonoocted and carried out by
Gen. Myers.

An Error in tbo Original Ordtr for Their
Issuance Corrected.
A ppecial meeting of the city oonncil was

The olerk read the oall, after whioh a
communication was read from Comp
troller Roche calling attention to a resolu
tion offered by him and passed by the
council on the 15th of January last. The

Roche explained that the amount was $50,
-000 in excess of the legislative actri of

ance of $i»5,000.
In view of the above a resolution was
adopted repealing the resolution of Jan
nary 15th, the last providing for the issu
ance of $146,000 sower bonds.
The following resolntioo was then offer
ed and unanimously adopted:
Resolved, By the oommon council of the
city of St. Paul, state of Mirne?ota. That
the proper oliicers are hereby insfraoted to

The Mille Lacs Indians.
Gov. Hubbard's letters to the commis
sioner of Indian affairs, in regard to the
Mille Lacs Indians are from the first let
ters sent by tho government to the com
missioner, Dec. 22, 18S3, npen which the
commissioner ordsred on examination to
bo made by Maj. Luse, the government
Indian agent. Ttiis agent made, or pre
tended to make this visit, and so reported
to the commissioners,and also that no suf
fering existed among the Mille
Lacs, bat that they were in a
comfortable condition. Soon after
this, affidavits were made by five or six
citizens of Mille Lac, whioh were in total
contradiction of the agent's statement to
the commissioner, and which showed that
Maj. Luse made no examination whatever
of the condition of the Indians, and avoid
ed any conference with them. These affi
davits were forwarded to Gov. Hubbard,
and by him sent on to Washington, and it
is in response to this last action of the gov

He *SVtt» Victimized.
There is a class of individuals in nearly
every department of life and living, that
hunger to be humbugged as babies do for
milk. Of this olass John F. Knowles, a
Minnesota farmer, seems to have belonged.
He bought a steam thresher engine of an
agent of Nichols, Shepard & Co., of Battle
Creek, Mich., on a cobweb warranty, pay
ing part cash and giving two
notes. Of course the machine gave
oat, and the lower courts de
cided against the manufacturers. The
Battle Creek firm appealed to the supreme
court, which yesterday decided that the
manufacturers are entitled to their full
pay, and that the warranty is a straw doc

the Congregationalists bought lots in the
park early in the season, and were the first

Presbyterians appeared, bought lots, pro
posed to bnild, and have started to hold

divided by two competing churches. Out
side parties in both cities deem the move

Locust streets leading the department to think
that, the blaze was of no ordinary size, the whole
department in the lower town wes summoned to i
the spot. On arriving ou tho ground it waa ,
found that the huge iron smoke stack of Blod- :
gett_fc Osgood's three-story planing mill was :
burning out, that it was at a white heat and run
ning up through the building had set it on fir» !
in the drying room. Employes, however, kept
the fire from spreading while the hose of the J

emergency. The stack finally cooled off with
out doing any damage to speak of. The struc
ture was insured for £15,000.

judgment be made a lien npon the same,
and that it be 30ld to satisfy it.
