STAGE, DRAMA AND PLAYER MARLOWE IN SHAKESPEAREAN AND j KNOWLES' PLAYS. . KOYT'S "A BRASS MONKEY." Marlowe Begins New Year* at the .Metropolitan, and "A Brass Monkey" Begins at the Grand Tonight— "As You Like Xt" the Matinee at the Met. Tomorrow —Grand Has Also a Matinee. The coming week at the Metropolitan will be given up to tragedy and comedy of the highest order, both in the litera ture of the plays and t>>a person of the players. In other words, Julia Mar lowe and her company will present the works of brilliant Sheridan Knowles and the immortal Shakespeare The reper toire will consist of six plays varied enough to suit the taste s i Cl-r dm of all lovers of good dramatic literature nhd fine acting. Two of these pieces will be produced by Miss Marlowe in St. Paul for the first time. They are those of Shcr dan Knowles, h i s famous play of "The 11 u nchback." and the cele brated, though seldom played comedy of j "The Love yChase." This Introdu ces Miss Marlowe as Constance Fondlove, city bred and there for c self- t p\ I Ip^^f^&r./i Imm l Rilled, but country born and therefore inclined to shrewish impetuosity in the attainment of her wishes, and her neigh bor, "Wildrake" (.Henry Jewett), the rural companion of her childhood days, a roysterous sporting squire who makes the hero to her heroine. In "The Hunchback," as Julia, Miss Marlowe has a serious part, and one of the most difficult in her repertory to play, both on account of the physical V : ' WW J ly exertion required, and the intricacy of the character. Of. Shakesperean roles she will give us Beatrice in a duel of wit with Benedick.Kosaliiid masquerad ing as Ganymede in Arden, and coy ing with Orlando; Viola in garments of Cesario, sick with love for her master the duke, and exercised how to reject the advances of the Lady Oliviac who believes her to be a man; and last and greatest, Juliet loving and dying foi Romeo. The engagement that Miss Marlowe and her company have just finished in Minneapolis has proven to be the larg est, without exception, of the season. So good, in . fact, was it, that both the management of the company and that of the theater claim to have made a more than weekly average profit. This would seem to indicate two things: Miss Marlowe's popularity and a return of good times-. 7-7 \\V — W'tHX The engagement opens with special matinee M o nd ay. New Yea day. when Miss Marlowe will appear as Rosa lind in "As You Like It." This play will be repeated Tuesday night. The following is the rep tory for the balance of the week: New Year's evening and Friday night, as Constance, in " The Love Chase:" Wednesday night, as Julia, in "The Hunchback;" Thursday night, as Viola, in "Twelfth Night:" Saturday matinee, as Beatrice, in "Much Ado About Nothing;" Saturday night, as Juliet, in. "Romeo and Juliet." "A BRASS MONKEY" Begins Tonight a Week's Engage. ment at the Grand. "A Brass Monkey." which is one of Charles 11. Hoyt's brightest and fun niest farces, will be" seen at the Grand all this week, beginning tonight. To morrow afternoon a special New Year's mainee will be given, in addition to the regular Wednesday and Saturday mat tinees. The plot of "A Brass Monkey" con cerns two cousins. Doolittle Work and Dodge Work, who are troubled over the It "^J &W 111 |\ v *.* ■ ' i^C—v'Vvi —■'■ ■■/^~" — — T*^J \' /// // /// settlement of the estate of their uncle, Patch Work, a wealthy auctioneer. Patch Work, the aforesaid uncle, held a supreme and hearty contempt for superstitions of all descriptions. Among iiis other possessions he left a brass monkey, supposed to be a "hoodoo" possessing the power to bring good or bad luck. The will settles all the property on Doolittle Work, he be ing supposed by the uncle to be above the question of superstition. The monkey in question is left to Doolittle in trust, his obtaining the fortune being dependent upon his ac cepting the gift. Dodge Work, much to his disappointment, is not reinem bered in the will. So the only pos sibility of his becoming his uncle's heir rests on the slender thread of Doolittle not accepting the monkey, but which he does eagerly. After a series of tribulations the will is finally broken, and in the end the estate becomes the joint property of the cousins. The satire of Mr. Hoyt's clever farce is aimed at the superstitions of the day. and the central figure is Mud. the Jonah, an old assistant in the auction room of the de ceased Work. Baggage, Mud's daugh ther, is the leading female character and in much lhe life of the piece. The strength of tbe company appears in the admirable manner in which even the most trivial part is enacted, and. all in all, "A Brass Monkey" is one of the most interesting pieces of its class. "WANG" NEXT. This Popular Opera Will Be Here Next Week. - The attractions booked for the Metro politan opera house for the week com mencing Monday, Jan. 8, are Edwin Stevens in the successful opera "Wang" for the first half of the week, and Frank Daniels in a new edition of "Little Puck" for the latter part of the wee„. "Wang" is one of the most successful operas that has ever been written, and has played to more money throughout this country than any similar produc tion of this kind. Edwin Stevens in the title role has scored an artistic triumph. Miss Virginia Earle as Mataya, the part originated by Delia Fox, is said to give a rendition of the part on a par with Miss Fox. The other princi pals of the cast are Joseph Greensfel der, Frank Casey, Miss Ethel Lynton, Miss Florence Drake and Miss Analee DeKalb. It having been a long time since any operas have been seen in this city "Wang" will probably test the ca pacity of the Metropolitan opera house the same as when presented about two years ago. The sale of seats begins at the box office for this engagement next Thursday morning. Frank Daniels' new edition of "Little Puck" is said to be the best that that farce comedy has enjoyed. . The com pany is the strongest that has ever sup ported Mr. Daniels in this play. TWO SCENIC ARTISTS. Tom Cunningham and His Assist ant Make Old Kentucky Worth Seeing. Scenic efforts and stage realism are two great parts in the modern drama of today, and two as clever artists as the country can produce have been in St. Paul the past week. They are Tom Cunningham, master mechanic, and Will Nash, his assistant, of "In Old Kentucky" company. Tom has the reputation of being able to put mechan ical effects on the stage so true to nature that the audience is willing to wgger Tom himself that he don't know what he is talking about when he attempts to explain the ins and outs of the decep tion, He conies to St. Paul nearly every year, having been here last sea son with the Katie Emmet company, and any scenic play with Tom in it is j sure to* be the greatest on the road. FOOTLIGHT FLASHES. Thomas Murray is still playing the eccentric Irishman in "The Voodoo." Hallen and Hart have met with most flattering success with their play "The Idea." "The Ensign," which is still meeting with great financial success, does not come to this city until April. • 7 : 7; Alexander Salvini produced a new romantic play, "Zamar," at the Star theater, on the 11th, audit is a great success. '-7.7' "The Black Crook," that had such a long run at the Academy of Music. New York, is an early attraction at the Met ropolitan opera house. It is pleasant to learn that Roland Reed is recovering rapidly and will soon be able to produce his new play, "Dakota," of which great things are ex pected. PfiF» Frank McKee was tendered a banquet by a number of his friends in New York on the night of the 15th to cele brate his entrance into the new firm of Hoyt it McKee. A number of strong attractions are booked in the near future at the Grand, among them "Spider and Fly," which follows "A Brass Monkey," and the new edition of "The Devil's Auction,"- whicli comes the week after the last named. -* Nat Goodwin will probably present "Newport," Clinton Stewart's play that W. 11. Crane was to have produced in New York at the Star theater a year ago. Mr. Goodwin has sold the right to produce "In Mizzoura" to Frederick Bryton. :'-'.• -■'-'• .;,'••"• The Store Was Closed All Day Friday and Crowded All Day Saturday. wHB The way the price of fine Shoes was slaughtered, you would not be surprised to see the crowds.

This life in here is awful. There was a time when I could stand it, and the time passed away quickly, but tbat has changed now. 1 try to read, but that won't do, and I throw djwn the book; I walk up and down the cell here, but a few minutes of that is enough. 1 try to sing, and tailing in that 1 throw myself on the bed and think, and when I come to that I neverfall to believe and feel that there is truly a hell upon earth." . ---..; - . ■ • As he repeated the words he arose from the cot and paced restlessly to and fro, finally stopping at the window and looking out upon tne street.

Sauk Rapids, Dec. 30.— The Globe was in great demaud yesterday by par ties anxious to read an article on its editorial page roasting our county offi cials, calling them "incompetent, land sharks, etc., and giving the town and peopie generally a "calling down" be cause of the lack of enterprise and busi ness done here. Your correspondent, as well as the. many citizens he has interviewed since, the publication of that article, was un aware that such a condition of affairs existed in our town and county. ' f, I have called on a majority of our mer chants, and without a single exception they claim to have had a -better trade this season, considering the financial stringency, than they have had for; several years past, and they, as well as the greater part.of our residents, are very Indignant, arid justly so, that a person who, as he claims, owns little or no property here, and is anxious to see the town grow, should place before the world the idea that Sauk Rapids is going backward and Benton county is. overburdened with taxes,.. when the fact is it is more lively and has better pros- t pects for 'prosperity now than any of the towns mentioned in the : article, and better than it has had tor several years, ln conversation with your cor respondent, the officials mostly all expressed -a willingness, and in fact a desire, that an examiner might be sent here to examine the books ami satisfy the crank, aud vindicate the officers.

WILSON HARD AT l WORK: LOOKING UP DATA FOR HIS TARIFF SPEECH. ' CONDITION OF : THE TREASURY *ij ' ' ■ • *.' - r j t C- tr^Cr Discussed, and What Is Best to Do ii 1 77 **_ Relieve It — The : Condition j : j . Serious, but Undo Sam Abie to i\'r Take Care of His Obligations— ;| Shortness of Available Cash if the Only Trouble. -' ; '7*'\.''7 r 7 -; Washington, Dec. 30. — Chairman Wilson, of the ways and means commit- . tee, is looking up data for his-. tariff speech. -Representative Whiting, who Isa member ot the ways;- and means committee, was also at the capitol; and : there was some talk on the present con dition of the treasury, "and what should be done to relieve it. As anything that 7 might be done in congress., would have to come . before the ways and - means committee, Mr. Wilson was rather ret icent, and when questioned regarding the treasury's condition aud the rem edy, replied: - - : -^ - - "We have nothing before us." "Do you regard the condition of the treasury as serious?" he was asked. . "Oh, yes, there can be no doubt as to that, but the United States is able to take card of its obligations. It is not the gold balance, which is below $100, --000,000, that need disturb us, but the shortness of the available casb to pay obligations." -7^ -.7. "The remedy is easy," said Mr. Whit ing when his opinion was asked. "The government could issue $50,000,000, or such other amount as was necessary, of legal tender treasury notes, redeemable in gold. It would be the most popular thing the government could do. . Of course, not being interest bearing, it would be called inflation. If we issued the same amount of interest-bearing notes or bonds, it would suit a latge class and be neralded as a legitimate . transaction. The banks want bonds." "But if the bonds were Issued in small denominations," said Mr. Wilson, . "so that any person could take them who had small amounts to invest, there is no doubt that a large proportion would betaken by small holders." "Such bonds would ultimately get into the banks," replied Mr. Whiting. "The small holder would pay the mer chant, and he would pay the banker." . Mr. Wilson would not indicate what would be done, nor would ho say in ad vance of the next meeting of the com mittees whether it would be necessary to have a further crmmunication from the secretary of the treasury than the suggestions carried iii the annual re port. Mr. Whiting said he thought bonds would be issued, and that con . gress would authorize the secretary to i issue bonds, as suggested in the annual report. * : Mr. Wilson was asked If the new tariff bill would make the balance of trade against this couutry so large as to ■ disturb the cold balances and make the > demand on the reserve so great as to cause any apprehension concerning it. He replied -that any ten years of the country's history would show that the 1 • balance of trade ran about even. -; - "It Is a matter of barter anyway," he added. "The balances are" not paid in -gold," but in exchange. 1 Tliere need be no apprehension of depletion of the gold reserve." --;.,-,' ; .-• . . *.-. ; .....; v ; .. . t Mr. Whiting was : of the opinion that i the matter .'would be' brought tip in com- 1 gress by the introduction of a bill, which would be referred to the ways and means committee for action. MAY FILIBUSTER. Republican Senators May Delay the Tariff Hill. Washington, Dec. 30.— Senator Alli son, in a brief conversation, today said there was little or no doubt that the senate committee on finance, of which the senator is a prominent member, would grant hearings to Interests af fected by the tariff bill when that meas ure reaches the senate, where demanded by persons representing sufficiently im portant Interests to consistently demand the attention of the committee. He said also that the committee was very hope ful of securing many replies to the cir cular letters of inquiry, which were being sent broadcast aver the land, and he thinks these replies will furnish many valuable suggestions to the mem bers of the committee. The opinion is gaining ground steadily that the senate will be deliberate in Its treatment of the bill. It was at first said that the Republican senators would not attempt to delay passage, but after expressing their dis approval in brief debate would permit it to go to a vote. It does not appear as yet that there will be any organized opposition for the purpose of delay merely, but that there will be such or ganization is becoming evident if it should become possible that by it the defeat of the bill could be accom plished. There are increasing indications that the passage of the bill in the senate may not be as certain as was supposed before it was put into shape, and there are senators who say openly that if the bill should pass the house unchanged and be reported from the senate finance committee in the same condition, it could not pass the senate in that shape in any event. There are many items upon which the Democrats could not muster a majority, and which will prob ably be defeated by a combination with the Republican?, if they cannot be changed in committee. j .7 Off for the Wedding. | Washington, Dec. 30.— A party of about forty persons, including many senators aud members of the house and prominent newspaper men, will leave heie Wednesday for - Hampton, Va., where they go to attend the wedding of Senator Charles F.

Brecklnridze, when asked about blocking Miss Pollard in her efforts to find testimony in Cincinnati .in her favor, as has been stated, said: "I went to Cincinnati simply to learn who the persons are whom Miss Pollard connects with the case against my father. I only wanted to find out the truth of her assertions. 1 found them to be a tissue of lies, and she will surely be unable to prove any of them." Asked if he would outline what he discovered there, young Breckinridge replied: > "1 hardly think it wortii while, but .Miss Pollard says on the Ist of April. 1 1885, she went to the foundling asylum ': at Norwood under the name ot Louise i Wilson. The mother superior says that she was not there, and she is uot regis tered. The other charges seem to be of the same groundless character. No, I never attempted to keep Miss Pollard from obtaining evidence, for if her charges are true she will have no troubie about that. The girl's mother does not claim that her daughter is worthy of much consideration, and thinks her con duct inexcusable." GETS HER DECREE. Mrs. Irvine "Wins in Her Suit for Divorce.
