Mr. Dickson's comedy is almost irre
sistible, and he depends quite as much
upon a look or a gesture to produce a
laugh as he does upon the lines. Miss
Crosman is one of those fortunate mor
tals blessed with a very large degree of
magnetism, and personal magnetism ln
the player is a quality absolutely neces
suiy for success. She takes the audi
ence -into her confidence almost at her
entrance, and they are all in love with
her before she has spoken a dozen
lines. Mr. Litt has given "Mistakes
"Will Happen" a very elaborate produc
tion. This comedy will be the only dra
matic entertainment in the city thia
week, and if it is possible to Judge from
the advance demand for seats, the en
gagement will be very successful.

Was one of the best offerings of tha
Grand last season. I'his year Mr. John

"Gayest Manhattan" is produced, has

run at the Columbia theater, it was
enthusiastically received by the larg<»

contains besides last year's favorites

The last act is one of specialties of a
high order.
In act 3 the travesty by Mr. Oarr
and Miss Jordan brought encores until

Veteran Minntrelny Manager Coming
AVitli a New Tronite.
Haverly's American and European
Minstrels, numbering forty people, will
be the attraction at the Metropolitan
opera house for four nights and Wed
nesday matinee, beginning Sunday
evening, Jan. 22. This ls the first min
strel engagement of the season, and
will, no doubt, be quite an event. Col.
J. H. Haverly, who is personally con
ducting the tour of the organization
this season, is said to have brought
together the strongest minstrel show
that he has ever had, and their busi
ness throughout the large Eastern cit
ies has been limited only by the capac
ity of the theaters. The company
numbers among its people some of the
best-known burnt-cork artists in the
business, and as an additional, up-to
date novelty, the Nicholas Sisters will
appear in a sketch In black-faca.
Joseph Hart's Specialty company, under the
direction of Weber & Fields, those famous
purveyors of vaudeville and burlesque enter
tainments, is among the early attractions at
the Grand. Joseph Hart, of Haileh and Hart
fame, and sprightly Carrie De Mar have brcn
induced by the tempting offer cf Messrs.
Weber & Fields to head their organization,
ln which they present Mr. Hart's own farce,
"Dr. Chauneey's Visit," an excruciating funny
bit of halt an hour's duration. This or
ganization also includes M. Rudlnoff, the
famous shadowgraphlst; Charles T. Aildrloh,
the tramp Juggler; the Brothers Dermm, sen
sational acrobats; the instrumental man, Val
more; Ethel Leviy In a repertoire of ballads,
Vors and. Adiams: Lavender and Tomson, a
comedy sketclh team.
"Going to the Races," the panto
mime comedy wlilcih has had - such
wonderful success everywhere, will be seen
at the Grand soon. The Brothers Byrne are
a really progressive firm of clover artists,
and ln this season's pioductlon will give their
many admirers a rare treat, for they have
psifected a number of now and startling
trirk6, besides several 6CMIIO effects that are
a marvel of stage craft.
Unusual interest attaches Itself to the ap
pearance of Hopkins' Trans-Ooeanlo. Star
Specialty company, at the Grand, In the near
future. It is headed by the reigning European
sersatloii, Kara, the marvelous juggler, and
It composed of such hiirh class artlstß as the

Realm of Music.
To The St. Paul Globe:
Although you h-iv? marie frequent m:n'l n
in jour columns of the importaaco and at
tractiveness of the next concert to be given
In the Schubert- L brary fund series, it ii
doubtful whether very many of our citizjns
feel any sen.-c of responsibility for lite suc
cess of that concerc, and sll that such suc
cess Implies.
On the evening of Jan. 13 there will ap
pear at the People's church a larger ai.d
better mixed chorus than has ever been got
ten together since .Mr. Baldwin left. Whi:o
it does not as yet include as many of tha
trained choir singers ard former St. Paul
choralites as we con d wish, yet fer fresh
ness snd refined quality of tone, and fo->
genuine enthusiastic interest In their wor'.J
and In their leader, I doubt whether tho
present ch.rus has ever been excelled.
At that conceit wl 1 also appear, practically 1
for the fr.t lime, an oic'je.tra A th.r.y young
men and women, residents of St Paul, wha
for several months- have been patiently labor
ing without money compensation to lit them
selves for a creditable interpretation of re
fined and noble art works. The cor.due or
, of both chorus and orchestra, Mr. Emll Ober-
Hoffer. has proven to the entire satisfac
tion of the few thoughtful, critical men and
women who have watched him clos.-ly for
several years that he ls pre-eminently qual
ified for the position he occupies, and they
heiisve, If given the opportunity to demon
strate it, that he will take equal rank with
the best Eastern conductors.
That a well trained mixed chorus and or
chestra under a capable leader -are ol far
greater importance and educational vaiue
than any number of soloists, however excel
lent, is universally admitted by musicians.
But we are to have next Friday night, as
soMstß, not only Mr. George Hamlin, pro
nounced by critics the greatest living Amer
ican tenor, but also Miss Katherine Gord;n,
Miss Millie Pottgieser and Mr. David Col
ville, three tames that ought to sUr ■•cry
fibre of our local pride. The programme, as
arranged by Mr. Ober-Hoffer and publ shed
in another column, ls one of paculiaT cha. m
and variety, so pleasing, popular and mod
ern that lt cannot fail to interest even these
who prefer Sousa to Thomas.
But even If a citizen heve no music in hie
soul, he owes it to himself or herself (for
we include all women as citizens in the high
est sense) to support the art work that is
being done in this city. A single ticket, cost
ing but 50 or 75 cents, means but a small
sacrifice, even to a day laborer, and yet in
expending lt he is helping not only to educate
and refine his children-, but to add to the
future commercial prosperity of his city.
It would greatly encourage the officers of
: the Schubert clurb, who have dared great
' things for their city's good during the last
two seasons especially, if they could have
the moral and financial support of a large
audience next Friday night. We hope that
the noble example set us by the people of
Minneapolis recently, by which tho Ladies'
Thursday Musical club netted |500 for Its
treasury, as the result of the Thomas or
ohestra concert, will be emulated by our St.
Paul friends, who, we feel sure, do not wish
to be loft far in the rear of our sister city's
triumphant march of progress.
Curiosity, self-interest, civic pride and
many other motives should oomibine to bring
thousands to the People's church next FrU
day night, so that even standing room can
not be obtained. —Louise B. Dorr

The remarkable success of the flrst recital
of Stxauas song* in America, which wa_
reoently given by George Hamlin ln Chicago,
the well known American tenor, Is shown hy
the following press notice:
James Hunecker, the distinguished writer
of the "Raconteur" articles in the Musical
Courier, says: "The example of George Ham
lin Is one for tenors to emulate. A Richard
Strause recital ls a novel Idea, a happy Idea,
and one that helps disprove the notion of
tenors no* being altogether human. A no
tion of You Bulow's, I believe. I congratulate
Air. Hamlin, who is after the making of mu
sic, and not mere vocal exploitations."
The Chicago News of Oct. 12, 1898, has tho
following to say of thia flrst Strauss re
cltad: "It waa eminently fit that George
Hamlin, one of the greatest tenors of the
world, should discover Strauss to the West,
not only as a deep thinker and «upert> pro
ducer, but as a poet of delicate and charm
ing tenderness. With the grace of a fan
tastic dreamer, Straußs has taken for his
themes the luscious venues of Yon Sctiack
and the intrepid ryhmes and pastorals of
Fedlx Dahn. He has woven about these Hits
strange ar.d mystic harmonies as clear a?
June skys. and as true as old age, but per
plexing and full of enchantment Mr. George
Hamlin has p. voice of such extraordinary
beauty and power, is so delightful in stvie
and technique, that no more honorable- or
brilliant i-lnger of classic songs could have
been entrusted with the delicate task of pre
senting the labors of this composer. Mr.
Hamlin's unae-suming position and his really
unusual gift make his e.-peclal.y the han
piest selection for so imposing a duty, and
both the splendid personal success attending
his rendition of the Slraus-' songs and the
superb compositions themselves mark the
cone-crt as both the most memorable and de
lightful in Chicago's history.''
The Musical Courier farther say? that Mr.
Hamlin is to be congratu'.atsd in tbe Etaud
taken of placing the prices of high-case
concerts at $1 lor the entire bouse, so that
students aud music-lover-i who have not long
purses can attend the e-f.uea; lonal recitals.
Manager Feldhauser. of the Library series,
proposes to do even fce'.ter 'han this by the
St. Paul public, for he will place on sale

Fishermen Capture a Dead Snake
and Tell a Thr-lUng Tale.
NEW YORK, Jan. 7.— James O'Con
nor and Edward Delaney caught a sea
serpent In the East river today. They
were bluefishing in a rovvbeat off Ran
dall's island. According to their story
the sea serpent, with his mouth open,
was cruising along. He looked big
erough to swallow the boat. When he
saw there was to be a fight he seemed
greatly irritated, and, uttering a num
ber of short, blunt growls, made for
the devoted boatmen.
As the sea serpent opened his entire
face to take the outfit down O'Connor
banged his oar on the head of the hap
less thing. The serpent seemed da/ed,
and, with a loud yelp, attempted to es
cape. But the watermen were in the
fight to stay, and while one rowed the
other whanged the ill-starred creature,
giving him a succession of rapid-fire
whangs that completely demoralized
him, and he lay helpless r.n the wave.
The fishermen tied a painter round
him and began to tow him ashore.
They hadn't got more than fifty fath
oms before the sea .serpent shoved
signs of life and of wishing to renew
the combat. So the boatmen went at
him again, and this time they made
sure of their victory by cutting off
his head.
They took the sea serpent ashore
and reported his arrival to the police,
thinking that there was some sort of
a reward offered for him. Policemen
who saw the sea serpent said that it
was a boa constrictor that had escaped
from some steamer from South Ameri
ca: He was twenty-five feet long and
had been dead, according to the police,
for several days.
An Effort Made to Vacate tlie At
taclnuent Against the Aetres*.
NEW YORK. Jan. 7.— Justice Nash
reserved decision in the supreme court
o-n a motion to vacate a $5,000 attach
ment obtained against Julia Arthur's
husband and Manager Benjamin P.
Cheney by Thomas Moss, of Wallack's
theater. The attachment was issued
In a suit for $10,000 brought by Moss
because of Miss Arthur's failure to con
tinue her engagement at the theater.
The application was based on the
claim that the actress' sickness com
pelled her to cease playing, and that
the contract with the theater provided
for the payment of no definite sum to
Moss. Scenery worth $25,000 has been
seized, and Its release was necessary
to permit the actress to fulfill con
tracts ln Boston and other cities.
Lawyer Hummel, for Moss, submit
ted affidavits declaring that Miss Ar
thur's sickness was n mere pretense,
that her contract to produce a new
play was yloJat^d.by the withdrawal o f
"A Lady of Quality" and the produc
tion of "Ingomar" and othei old plays,
that Miss Arthur is j ;st an ordinary
actress, and that any actress could do
as well ln these plays, and that Cheney
had said she would not play in New
York, which seemed to prefer plays
like "The Turtle" and May Irwin's rag
time musio.

Williams, Sheriff Cook and Chief of
Police Strauss have gone to the place
