AN IMMENSE SPECTACLE.
Calambit and the Otneovery ef Amer
ica With JtOO People.
Last season and the year before Bar
nam & Bailey introduced into the circus
the prodaction of great spectacles. It
was an original idea with them and they
ery successfully carried it out for two
years. Finding it met with such univer
sal approval, and that it delighted and
instructed while bewildering and amaz
ing the whole people, they decided upon
continuing so meritorious a feature and
have this season produced another, but
upon so grand and colossal a scale as to
utterly dwarf all their previous great
triumphs. The past successes gave them
the necessary experience to perfectly pro
duce the present one, and based upon the
knowledge gained in tbe last two years
they have now indisputably the grandest
and most overwbelminging magnificent
historical, terpeicborean and thrilliog
spectacle the mind can possibly concieve
of. Its magnificence and grandeur sur
passes belief, while its wealth of riches
and embatrassment of romantic, pictur
esque groupings and colorings are well
nigh incomprehensible. The theme, too.
is both well timed and appropriate. oc
curring on exactly the 400th
centenary of the finding of the
New World and when the nation is
about to commemorate the great event
by a World's Fair. Columbus and the
Discovery of America, as its title sug
gests, is a realistic production of all tbe
circumstances connected with the life of
the famed discoverer as well as those
parts of history in which be was an im
porUnt actor. The battle between tbe
Moors and Spaniards are shown with
Columbus as a combatant on the side of
the cross against the crescent. The
ancient cities of Spain are seen with their
old walls, turrets, towers. g&Us and pal
aces; the interior of the famous Alham
bra palace by moonlight is a ravishing
scene, with the Moorish dancing girls in
their lovely costumes, dreamily ami
poetically interpreting the wild, weird
music and songs of those days. Moorish
warriors in all tbe splendor of steel ar
mor, acd high priests in their sacred
robes; ihe chivalry of Spain, the brilliant
court of Ferdinand and Isattlla. with its
rich and noble attendants, cavaliers and
courtly dames costumed in a style dem
onstrating an utter diregard ot expense
soldiers armed with cross bows, arqi-
buses and other ancient weapons; festi
vals, fetes, displays, pageants, triumphal
processions, tournaments on foot and on
horseback, games combats and other ex
citing features succeed each other
with thrilliijEr raoiditv until
one's mind is lost in behold
ing them. Then follows tbe trials of
Columbus. his efforts to obtain recognition
his sucres and first voyage, tbe riisnov
ery of America, tbe lise of tfce Indians,
their dances and games, the return voy
ace of Columbus", his triumphal entry
into Barcelona and well, there really is
so much to nee that description fails of
half. Suffice it tbat for grandeur of con
ception and magnitictnci! of execution it
stands without . varlli-l in the anna's of
amusements. The cost to produce it ws
half a million dollars, no les than ?o,
000 being spent in scenery alone, while
the costumes cost $250. tHK). and the Hr
mor, weapons, trapping, etc . $50.0H)
more, besides months of time devoted to
tenrching in the Hrchivea of Sptin for the
historical data. Besides all this there are
three circus cmp iniea ia three fines,
two eh vated stat'es, the hippodrome,
mystifying illus'on3, two menageries, two
herds of e.tpiianiR. two droves of camels,
trained animals, 20 clowrs, 50 aerinlists.
100 circu9 performers, 100 circus act,
curious freaks in the animal creation and
a thousand novel and wot derful frights as
instructive as they are edifying and
amusing. Tbe entire of all this will be
seen just as represented on Saturday, at
Columbian park, with the new free street
parade in the morning at 9 o clock.
