The production of a new comic opera
by W. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sulli
van is always an event of . exceptional
interest, and it is certain that no au
thors of the present decade have the
popularity that has been accorded to
these clever English collaborators.
•'The Gondoliers" completes the round
dozen of operas .that have come from
these fellow-workers; and, as it is now
a craze in London and in New York, it
must be set down as equal to the most
successful of their productions. In
6omc of their operas Gilbert and Sulli
van have attempted to introduce a sen
timental interest, but in "The Gondo
liers" their aim seems to have been to
infuse as much humor as possible into
the libretto, and the consequence is that
there is not a dull moment irom the rise
of the curtain till its final tall.- Sir
Arthur Sullivan has also cast aside his
nn.bii ion to write a grand opera, and
has filled his score with bright and pop
ular melodies, which make the opera as
a whole even more popular as a musical
work than "The Mikado." The lyrics
are all in the familiar Gilbertian vein,
and some of the author's cleverest and
most ingenious rlntnes maybe found
embodied in this bock. A song, in
which ingenious words are fitted to a
catchy tune, is the first number assigned
to the" Duke of Plaza-Toro, a Spanish
grandee, who sings of himself:
In enterprise of martial kind,
\\ hen there was am fighting;
lie led his regiment from behind —
He foun'l ii less exfitiug.
But when hib regiment ran.
His place was at the fore, O—
The Dute of Piuza-Toro!
When to evade destruction's hand
To hide they all proceeded,
No soldier in that gallant band
Hid half as well as lie aid.
He lay concealed ihrou-houi the war.
And so preserved his gore, 01
The Duke of Plaza-Toro I
This -Duke of Plaza-Toro is a hidalgo
Of lordly lineage, but he tlouixurs in
impecuniosity to such an extent that lie j
is obliged to turn himself into a stock
company for the . purpose of making
money out of his title and social in
fluence. He is one of the funniest
characters that Gilbert has ever con
ceived. The plot turns upon the ab
duction of the king of Barataria when
that monarch is h prattling infant. lie
is taken to Venice and introduced into
the family of a highly respectable gon
dolier, who brings up the infant mon
arch with his own small boy of the .satin;
age. The consequence is that neither
the highly respectable gondolier nor in
deed anyone else can tell which is the
king alter he has arrived at years of !
discretion. The grand inquisitor of
Spain was the functionary t<> whom was
intrusted the mission of a* dueling the
juvenile king, and of his prowess as an
abductor the grand inquisitor says:
I stole the prince, and 1 brought him here
And left him, gaily prattling
With a highly rcspettntJle .gondolier,
Who promised the royal babe to rear.
And teach him the trade of a tiraoneer
With his own beloved brailing.
. Both of the babes were strong and stout,
And, considering all things, clever.
Of that there is no manner of doubt-
Is^ probable, possible shadow of doubt —
Ko possible doubt whatever.
At the end of a year, as the inquis
itor relates, he reappears to the gondo
lier, who then is unable to distinguish
the royal babe from "his own beloved
bratling." Or, as the inquisitor rhyth
mically expresses it —
But owing. I'm much disposed to fear.
To his terrible taste f.>r tippling,
That highly respectable gondolier . .
Could never declare with a mind sincere
Which of the two was his offspring dear,
And which the royal stripling! .';,-.
Which was which hoc. uld never uiuke out,
Despite bis best endeavor.
Of that tbe;e is no manner of doubt—
Ko probable, possible shadow of doubt
No possible doubt whatever. *
One of the most interesting numbers
In the opera is the Spanish cachucha,
which is danced in the second act. The
melody is one of the mo>t captivating
that Sir Arthur has ever produced, and
the dance is at once exhilarating and
livening. Principals and choristers
Join in this Terusiehore.m revel. The
Cachucha is the most alluring and dash
ing of the characteristic Spanish dances,
and its execution by the present com
pany is brought to a high degree of per
fection. This number never fails to re
ceive several encores, as it has a de
cidedly original and picturesque effect.
A very pretty song in the first act is as
signed to T i>sa. the sweetheart of one
of the gondoliers. It purports to de
scribe the beatific state of mind "When.
a Merry Maiden Marries." Gianetta's
song, "Kind Sir. you Cannot Have the
Heart" is very charming in the simple
Brace of its melody, and Miss Lily Post,
the Qiaiietta of the present cast, makes
much of it. One of the.best comic num
bers is the duel for the two gondoliers,
who toll of the ideal kingdom which
they expect to found, where "All Shall
Equal Be." . />- .fU
For every one who feels inclined.
Some post we undertake to tind
Congenial with bib peace of mind—

Another number which received a re
peated encore was the quartette, "One
of Us Shall Bea Queen," in which the
two gondoliers and the con tad i lie give
their ideas of the functions of royalty.
The second act U full of capital lyrics
set to the most sprightly music. The
duke and duchess have a most clever
duet, in which they relate, with ingenu
ous frankness, their methods of nuking
money by simply being a duke and

A BIG DEAL ON FOOT.
Has Henry Villard Bought
Tom Lowry's Street Car
The Story Is That He Will
Buy Out Lowry in Both
Certain Corroborative Inci
dents Named by Think
The Scheme Said to Be in
Connection With fceeker
There seems to exist excellent ground
for belief that Henry ViHard has pur
chased a controlling interest in the
street railway system of this city and
Minneapolis. Early yesterday morning,
rumors were rife that such a deal had
been consummated, and subsequent in
vestigation did nothing to allay the be
lief in the truth of tne assertions or pre
vent their general acceptance as fact.
A Globe reporter got wind of the
story, and after talking with numerous
persons claiming to have heard the
news of the deal from reliable sources,
was informed that G. O. Bacon had in
side information ou the subject.
Mr. Bacon was found at the Minnesota
club, and In response to questioning
stated that he had received no informa
tion from the parties directly concerned
in the deal, but had been informed that
Mr. Villard had purchased a controlling
interest in the street railway systems of
St. Paul and Minneapolis, and that he
considered his information to be thor
oughly reliable, though he did not feel
at liberty to divulge its source. Accord
ing to h s informant the terms of the
deal included the purchase of a vast
amount of stock in tne lighting com
panies ot both cities. Mr. Bacon said
he was inclined to accept the story
as true from the fact that Mr. Villard
had already heavy interests in St. Pani
and Minneapolis, and that his purchase
of the street car lines and lighting ap
paratus was in line with his recent ac
quisition of the rights originally granted
by the government to the Mississippi
Ilivvr Improvement company. Lt was
well known to be a Villard scheme to
DAM THE EIVEK
at a point between tne cities for the
purpose of securing power for lighting
the two cities, tor street car propulsion
and other purposes for which electricity
could be utilized. Iv the acquisition
of the privileges granted the now
defunct company, Mr. Villard had
trained a groat advantage, it being but a
matter of a very short time until do
other method than tlie electrical one
would be acceptable for operating street
railways, lt seemed very possible iv
th« premises that if approached with a
fair offer for iiis interests in the Hues,
Mr. Lowry would be willing to sell.
At the Merchants' hotel the rumored
transfer was the chief topic of conver
sation, and a general belief in the credi
bility of the news seemed to exist,
where doubt would have been more in
accordance with the conservative
methods of the men engaged in the dis

Crawford Livingstone returned from
New York yesterday, and beine bd
proached by a Globe reporter as to any
knowledge he might have of the deal,
"1 have seen Mr. Lowrv almost every
day iv New York. Of course 1 should
not feel at liberty to divulge anything
that might have been told me in confi
dence, but, as a matter of fact, 1 know
nothing about Mr. Lowry's intentions.
What do 1 think about the rumors?
Well, 1 think it possible that such a
deal as is spoken of may have been
made as regards the street car lin»*s,
but I will say positively that Mr. Vil

since last October, when he made large
purchases. Ido not think it iniDroba
ble that Mr. Lowry may have sold out
his interests to Villard. Street rail
ways iv St. Paul are not very good
property, and I should think the receipt
ot a good oiler would be an inducement
to the present owner to unload. At all
events the truth will be known shortly,
for Mr. Villard himself will be in St.
Paul iv a few days. He will doubtless
explain his plans for the future, for he
is not at all reticent iv such matters."
"Is it to be inferred that you have re
ceived information of Mr. Villird's
plans and that you are bound to silence
in connection therewith?"
"Infer nothing, except that 1 know

the firm of Cochran & Waish, who had
not, heard of the deal, but admitted that
it mitrht have been made. "The only
news from Lowry that 1 have received
recently," said Mr. Walsh, "is a dis
patch which I got this morning, which
1 take to be In reference to the «.penin?
of the Grand avenue line. The dispatch
read as follows:
New York, Feb. 23.— Thomas Cocbran or
Archbishop Ireland: On this blessed Sun
•lay. when I ftm trying to rest, it seems but
fHtine that T should thank yon for your en
conr«!<rlnK u?lesrrain. I will try to prove
wiihin the next four weeks that the cheering
for 1 1 ' in Lowry on Washington's birthday
was not all wasted Tuos. Lowkt.
This dispatch, said Mr. Walsh, bears,
as you see, no reference to any such
deal, either past or prospective.
Judtre Nelson thought the rumors
well grounded and said that his
BKI.IEF IN TIIEIU iRUTH
was greatly increased by his knowledge
of Mr. Villard's connection with the
scheme for establishing water power by
damming the river at Meeker't Island.
If the story was true and the transfer
had been made, there would be a great
and sudden change in the lighting and
transportation facilities of the Twin
Cities, lt meant that the chance from
horse cars to electric cars would be a
rapid one, for Viilard was not the man
to do things by halves, and would, in all
probability, proceed at once to provide
the necessary power. He would not be
at all sorry to hear that the rumored
transaction was a fact.
Efforts to discover the recipient of the
dispatch from New York, which is said
to have been the source of the story
which gained popular credence in St.
Paul yesterday, proved unavailing. Mr. '
Bacon declared that the telegram had
not come to him personally, aud he was
not at liberty to tell who had been his
informant. The attitude of persons
most liable to have received in
side information on the subject was
such as to indicate their possession of
more facts in the premises than they
cared to divulee. However, the story is
generally regarded as having considera
ble foundation in fact, and talks with
several prominent real estate dealers
revealed that the story had been very
thoroughly discussed in real estate cir
cles, and was accepted as a fact.

FEW DAYS NEEDED.
Full Operation of the Electrical
■ Line Deferred in the Public In
The Grand avenue electric line will
not be in full operation until the close
of the present week. The reason for
this is not far to seek. To arrange a
time table for the electric i line so as not
to conflict with the horse car lines, and
insure regular trains on each, it will
readily be seen is a difficult job under
most favorable circumstances. It is
claimed that the application of the elec
tric system to the Grand avenue line is,
by reason of its many- sharp turns and
the grade oh Oakland avenue, a very
trying test. At least so the rail
way company r consider it, accord
ing to Col. . Barr. and -though
well satisfied with the experimental
trips, including those of Saturday to
celebrate the formal opening, the man
agement do not feel justified . in throw
ing the line open to the public until the
working of the system has been more
fully tested and employes have become
familiarized with it. To this end cars
are being operated from Forbes street
west, on which portion of the line the
heaviest grade is encountered, and the
management confidently expect that de
fects, if any should be developed, be
discovered and overcome, their em
ployes sufficiently well drilled, and
running details so well arranged that
the line for its entire length can be suc
cessfully and safely put into service in
two or three days.

The C. ot C. at Last Determines
Upon a Definite Line of Action.
Vice President Nbyes presided at the
chamber of commerce meeting yester
day, in the absence of President Bishop.
The only matter of importance was
raised by H. F. Stevens, who presented
a resolution to the effect that
the committee on manufactures be
asked to consider the expediency of
raising a fund of $100,000 in cash and
land, to be used as a basis of securing
the location of manufactures here,
and if the plan seemed good
to the committee, to formulate
a plan for- its accomplishment.
Mr. Stevens said we ought to take some
more positive action or drop the subject.
W'th only a brief agitation subscrip
tions were freely made for the extension
of the Selby avenue line, and many
stood ready now to offer subscriDtimis
for the establishment of manufactures,
but the whole matter was being frit
tered away in talk. It is tiue that we
proceeded In a more businesslike way.
Mr. Cochran took exception to the
statement that the time had been frit
tered away, and thought the resolution
should be kept from the newspapers.
Mr. Stevens objected, saying that the
fullest publicity was the best policy.
Mr. Tallmadge remarked, he had en
countered one difficulty in negotiating
with manufacturers and others, and
that upon inquiry he had always found
that land for manufacturing purposes
was held nt an enhanced value.
Mr. Faircliild and Mr. Hazzard were
aroused at this and said the secretary
had never made any Inquiry of them for

they were willing to sell at a very low

Leonard I'artello, Convicted of
Forgery, Gets a New Trial.
Leonard Partello. who was recently
found guilty ot forgery in the noted
land fraud cases, has been granted a

ground upon which the motion was
granted is that the state's attorney, In
his argument to the jury, commented
upon the failure of Partello to testify in
reference to an intercepted letter.
Whilst the attorney knew that he was
not permitted to comment upon the
prisoner's refusal to testify in general,

so with reference to the letter intro

IT WAS RAKE SPORT.
An Exciting Game of Progressive
Billiards at the Windsor.
: There is more enjoyment to the square
inch among the guests of : the Hotel ■
Windsor than in any other hostelry in
the Northwest. The 'latest piece of
amusement took, the form of a pro
gressive billiard party, played on the 1
principle of progressive euchre, with
eight tables. The game began at i8 *
o'clock and elided at ll:3o,and through-:'
out the . evening the . crowded rooms
rang with the laughter of the players l
and the spectators contingent, for -"it-,
was exceedingly amusing. In the
beginning the players drew cards,
which determined the tables and part
ners with which they began. Twenty
points, three balls, were played on the
head table, and when the first twenty
points were scored the gong sounded.
The winners at each table advanced and
received a progressive mark. The win
ners then banked, the winner chose his
partner and the game proceeded. The
change of partners equalized the game
and the sport was very great. Among
the players were some of the local
cracks and some very amateurish play
ers, the following being the list:
M. It. Shirley. M. L. ejardell. P. E.Wheeler.

The prizes were as follows; Capt.

progressions, took the handsome cue,
for second prize. O. R. Fox, with two

prize, an oil painting.for the highest run.
When the aw rds were made Col. Mon

were thrown open and the party invited
to a sumptuous lunch. In discussing
the dainties, the battles of the evening
were re fought, and the party voted an

Meeting of the Mate Congrega

The Minnesota Congregational club
held its February meeting last evening
in the People's church, it was a cred
itable meeting as to numbers in attend
ance, as well as in its literary and social
features. Quite a goodly number of
members from without the city were
present. The topic for consideration
was: "Central and Southern Republics
of America." E. "K. Fairchild, of
Minneapolis, read a paper discuss
ing the natural resources. Prof. Eugene
D. Holmes, of Minneapolis, read a pa
per upon their educational facilities;
Rev. A. J. Benedict, of St. Paul, dis
cussed their religions condition and the
outlook for missionary effort; Dr. Albert
t)ii»W. of .Minneapolis, delivered an ad
dress in which he treated of our rela
tions to these republics. All of special
subjects were treated in a manner indi
cating study and preparation. The ex
ercises commenced at about 7 o'clock.
A portion of the time was devoted to
social intercourse, and a sumptuous
supper was served in the Sunday school
• room; where several tables were nicely
decorated with potted plants, flowers,
candelabra and china ware. .
1 THE Aillil I < \ BOYS.
A New Company mv the Saintly
■; ,- ■ City. -:v : ~' : -;
The Minnesota national guards
turned out in considerable numbers
last evening to attend the battalion drill
in the armory. As there were but three
companies present— Companies C, D
"end E— it was necessary to construct a
fourth squad for the purpose of com
pleting the battalion. This was done
by dividing Company C, which is the
largest company. Capt. Chautler may
justly feel proud that his company has
the full complement of seventy
six. The other companies, however,
can be depended upon to muster a
strong force of men. There being con
siderably over 100 men present, the !
armory was found to be rather small for
fully displaying the proficiency and pre
cision of the battalion under drill,
There were a large number of ladies
present— composing the left wing of the
several companies— who took consider
able pride and interest in the soldierly
bearing-and proficiency of the blue
coated boys. Col. Bend seemed well
pleased . with the showing of his bat
talion. . • -'::; :.■ -
The Merrlam Zouaves and a number
of other volunteers were at the armory,
to the number of twenty-six, and were
mustered in by Col. Bend as Company
H,of the Minnesota national guards,
takiug the. place of the Litehheld com
pany, recently mustered out of service.
There are fifty-five members enrolled,
for the company, which is considerably
more than the requisite number. Those
not present will be mustered in the cap
tain of the company. Joseph Maginuis.
The first lieutenant of the new com
pany is S. Whitney. The other officers
are to be elected. St. Paul can now
boastfully claim four crack military
companies in the state national guard.
Such, It Is Saul, Mr. Lowry Will
i aild Instead oft. Arcade.
In connection with the statement that
the St. Paul and Minneapolis street car
lines had been sold, was another that
Mr. Lowry had declared his intention of
going on with the erection of the par
tially completed building designed as
the Arcade opera house. The building
to be put up will, it is stated, be de
signed as a Masonic tejuple and office
building. " Building Inspector Johnson,
when approached on the subject yester
day, said that he was aware of Mr.
Lowry's intention to go ahead with the
building in the spring, but added that
when he inquired what the building'
was to be Mr. Lowry had replied that
he was uot yet . ready to state. Mr. ;
Johnson added that the erection of a ;
very high building would entail coitsid- <
eraole changes in the foundation plans,
though a buildingof perhaps eighty feet
could be started. off from the basement
walls as they now stand. .
A Masonic building is one of the
things needed in St. Paul, the present '
quarters in the McQuillan being alto
gether inadequate for the purposes of
the brotherhood. • No plans lor the

-. ;•':." "■>_": : Counts, J.
First— A trial of this action termi
nated in a disagreement and discharge
of ,the jury. On plaintiff's motion for a
retrial, at the same term of the court,
ordered, for reasons, .which- we must
presume to have been adequate, al
though not stated in the order, that the
cause stand continued unless the plaint
iff should consent to try it to a "struck
jury." Plaintiff consented in writ
ins,', participated in the selection
of such a jury, and tried his
case. Held, that he could not question
the regularity of the order, after ver
dict. Second— No formal demand was
made by either party, contemplated by
section 15, chapter 71, General Statutes
1878, for : a struck j ury, but this | was
wtll known by the plaintiff when he ac
le by either party, contemplated by
ion 10, chapter 71, General Statutes
s f or a struck jury, but this was
I known by the plaintiff when he ac
cepted the conditions of the order and
took part in the selection of the jurors.
Held, he waived the irregularity men
tioned. Third— A witness for the plaint
iff was charged, when testifying, with
having materially changed and added to
his testimony as given upon the previ
ous trial. .This he denied, whereupon
the court stenographer who took the
testimony produced and tendered his
notes in full. The witness recognized
the same as correct. All of the testi
mony was then offered by the defend
ants and received in evidence, under ob
jection, in support of the claims that
the witness had changed and added to
his testimony upon a material point.
Held, that the court did not err in rul
ing the same : admissible. Fourth —

the court when taking the testimony
and errors said to have occurred in its
charge to the jury, considered and dis

Clement Vaudall, respondent, vs. Catharine
i .St. Martin et al., appellants.
■ j Upon a re-examination of the record,
we are .of the opinion that in two or
three instances the trial court *rred in
permitting Vandal I to testify as to the
effect or general purport of his conver
sation with Bibeau, deceased. It was
as inadmissible under the statute as.
would have been the exact words of the
conversation. But these errors were
without prejudice. The only tendency
of the objectienable testimony was to
prove that it was the intention of the
parties that the land in dispute should
bo . conveyed by the deed from Bibean
to Mrs. Vandall, and that they supposed
it wat, and the only pertinency of this
fact was to characterize the entry and
possession of : Mrs. .Vandall under this
deed as being -coextensive with the
description intended and supposed by
all to be contained in. it. But
the uncontradicted competent evidence
in tlio case, as to the "original tri
partite arrangement between Vandall,
Mordi and Le Gris. as to the division of
thefe lands after purchase from the gen
eral government. . the : conveyance by,
Vandall of the tracts which he had pur
chased, under the arrangement, to
BiUeau without consideration, the sub
sequent fulfillment by the latter of the
. terms of the tripartite agreement re
-1 ferred to, with Mordi and Le Gris ; the
fact thai, altough without any approved
title, Vandall also, executed deeds to
them as required by the agreement; the
conveyance by BiUeau to Mrs. Vaudall,
without consideration, of part of the ;
land which Vandal! was to have, . w.th
out any apparent reason why the . re
mainder now in controversy was omit
ted, and tht further fact that neither he
in his lifetime, nor his heirs after his
decease, for a period of more than
twenty-five years, asserted any claim to
that which was omitted from the deed.
although the Vandalls were all the time
in open I and notorious possession
of the land, paying taxes each year as
1 they fell due, taking in connection with
other undisputed circumstances, so ir
resistably lead to the conclusion that it
was not only the intention of the parties
to convey the land by this deed, but
also their belief that this had been done,
that the trial court could not have
found the facts otherwise. The con
clusion reached in the former opinion is
adhere i to.

; In a. recent, issue o£ the Globe an
article appeared in which the order of
Judge Otis relating to the custody of
the boy Bertie lv the case of Brusrge
man vs. Brußgeman' was so construed
as to give the lad into the care of the

erroneous. The fact is the court de*

the present with his grandfather, the
order being subject to such modifica

necessary. The information upon which
the article was based cam el rum reliable

The writer was pleased to see in your
Issue of yesterday that you had given
space in your paper for the discussion
as to the advisability of forming an as
sociation for the mutual benefit of the
fraternity of bookkeepers and account
ants of the city of St. Paul, and was
also gratified to think some bookkeeper
had the matter so much at heart as to
set the ball in motion.
I had often thought of doing the same
but lacked courage to take the initiative
step. That such an organization should
be formed there is no doubt. I "have
given the matter a irood deal of thought,
and have also had some correspondence
with associations of Detroit and St.
Louis, and they report great progress.
I also learn that nearly every large city
is represented. Why not* St. Paul?
There is quite a number of bookkeepers
who have expressed a desire of going
into such an organization, and I might
add that such well known accountants
as Col. Bend, Mr. Mann (of Finch. Van
Slyck & Co.), Mr. Brack (of Linuekes,
Warner & Schurmeier) have been inter
viewed on tne subject by the writer and
another gentleman, and they all ex

What It Costs
Must be carefully considered' by the great
majority of people before buying an article
which seems absolutely necessary. Hood's
Sarsaparilla commends itself with special
force to the great middle classes, because It
combines positive economy with great medic
inal power. It is the only medicine of
which can truly be said "100 Doses One Dol
lar," and a bottle of Hood's Sarsaparilia
taken according to directions will average to
last a month, while other medicines last but
half or quarter as long. Try Hood's Sarsa
