The little reople, who are men and women In ag;e despite their midget physical organization, appear In a spectacular musical extravaganza entitled "In Pos teriand," which embraces subjects so diversified that they embrace music, comedy, pathos, dances, wit, marches .nd character sketches of the most re J ,'markable nature, with these "infinitesi Pmal and mammoth Impersonators re J Introducing us to our poster friends, j their mishaps, blunders, eccentricities, ' failures and successes, embracing i - .

Sirs Kafzenja'm- Foxy Grandpa, -Lady Bountiful, the ' Gold Dust Twins; a lesson in etlauette and general deportment by Alpnonse find Gaston, and many others of equal fame. f The cast Includes midgets from twenty-seven Inches up to giants , of eight feet and the contrast is particu larly striking, while -the-chorus'-' or comely maidens are sumptuously;, cos tumed, which, together with" their nat ural attractiveness and the dazzling light effects on the various graceful groupings, makes them still more beau tiful. Prices are 25, 35 and 50 cents. .VAUDEVILLE AT THE JACQUES. The Misses Melville and Stetson, the Seven Heed Birds and the other clever entertainers who are appearing with them at the Jacuqes this week are pro- Vidm2 fcttlendifl enlnvmpnf f n- repv large audiences, and it is doubtful it there is an act on the bill that Is not In itself, and wholly apart from the others, worth more than the price of admission that Is charged for the whole show. It ig In this Important quality ' that vaudeville na ager Poll excels all other forms of the atrical entertainment. Never does he offer a bill where the spectators do not get more than their money's worth in some single act, to say nothing of the entire bill of acts; arid It is by this pol icy that he has made such phenomenal headway in vaudeville. One cannot see this week's show, of a verity, with out being signally impressed with this essential fact. Not an act on the bill but Is worth in itself all it costs to see the entire show; jn the collection of acts it is extraordinary that one can see it for' so little money. Prices are 10, 20 and 30 cents; afternoons, 10 20L and SO cents. Much pleasure will come from the announcement that the Byrne Brothers' new "Eight Bells" Is down for a single presentation at Poll's on Monday even ing. This production is no stranger to local theater-goers, but it js none the less acceptable on that account. It re tains this season all the excellent pan tomimic and mechanical features that have popularized it heretofore, and there are many new ones which will vvuiiuewi uiemselves. Sale of seats Saturday. ' kind, has ever been given In Water bury, The show Will be greater than at first planned, the postponement for a 'week giving the manager and those who have made entries more time to prepare for the occasion.

But two days remain before the bu gle blows for the gathering of the horses entered In the first class to be judged at the horse show. : Already 135 entries have been received by Manager Riggleman. and the affair promises to be the greatest outdoor horse show ever given in the east, with the possible exception of the fa mous shofv given at Newport annually. By reason ofthe large number of en tries it is absolutely necessary to start next Saturday afternoon's show at 1 o'clock, at which time General Alexan der Harbison will be on hand to judge the entries in Class A. All exhibitors must have their horses or automobiles on the field before 12:30 p. m. , Dr Thomas Bland will have as as sistants Dr Peter;T. Keeley and Clif ford .R. Bradley. The trio will be mounted. General Harbison in a let ter to Manager Riggleman expresses the hope that the sun will shine on Saturday and all who have the Interest of the horse show at heart will agree ,-vviiu mm. iiianager Riggleman has been put to great expense and has de voted much time in preparation for the horse show, and the people of 'Water bury and vicinity, having in mind the charitable object of the show, should jrally to txis support. No show of Its Almost at the same time with the news of Peary's return came the an nouncement of that of Captain Sver drup, who set out more than.f our. years ago to do what Peary has done. Sver drup was diverted from the course he had laid out, and never got near the north coast of Greenland, which he had intended to map. But it "was all for the best. Peary has attended to that, and Sverdrup, being compelled by force of circumstances, to wit, ice, to move to the westward Instead of g 'ing north through Smith sound, war able to make an extended and careful sur vey of the south and west coasts of Ellesmere land, a region that was un known, and the outlining of which was a real and considerable addition to geographical information. It will be remembered that Captain Sverdrup was the captain of the Fram during the Nansen expedition. When he undertook his more recent task he was in charge and began by announc ing that his object waf that already described by Peary. But whereas the latter, taught by experience, arranged to go over the ice along the shore of Smith sound, overdrup stuck to the old way of trying to force his ship through. The result was ihat he was checked al most at "the outset," and in the follow ing year, attempted to pass through the Parry group of Islands to the west ward. Here again he was stopped by ice and seems to have been frozen in ever since, up to the time of his re turn. Yet the time was well spent It he has accomplished that which he is now understood to have done. He sent home no mention of his change of plan and seems to have made no effort to do so, although it was not impossible and probably not very difficult to arrange for it. His Norwegian friends and backers were left without inf oration, apparently on the assumption that they had no right to believe that anything unpleasant could happen to a party sailing on the Fram and in charge of Sverdrup. There is this to be said in favor of his as sumption regarding their confidence, that- when he did not return and noth ing was heard from him a good many of them assumed that he had slipped through Smith sound somehow and wag working away far north of any spot he ever reached on this trip. ' He had -started out without much regard to courtesy and had been obliged to give up air that part of his undertak ing which involved meddling with a search that was already in good hands, but he lost nothing by the turn of events and the two expeditions were made supplementary instead of con flicting, to the advantage of both and of the world at large.

THREE KEW NAMES OH THE TICKET Friction of First Day Ends In liar mony Sheldon, Forced to Decline, Om No Grievance Platform Stronsly Indorse Xlooaevelt. SARATOGA, N. T., Sept. 25.-Com-pleting In three "hours a state ticket and promulgating a platform of princi ples without the least Indication of fraction and amid much enthusiasm, the state Republican convention ad journed sine die. The ticket nominated was: For gov ernor, B. B. Odell, Jr., of Orange; lieu tenant governor, F. W. Hlgglns of Cat taraugus; secretary of state, John F. O'Brien of Clinton; treasurer, John Q. Wickser of Erie; comptroller,; N.' B. OPENING of the entire 'new beginners' danclnjf clasa Monday evening, Sept 29, In Cit izen's Bank building. The waltz and two-step are thoroughly acquired with my scientific method In 12 lessons. Never take private tuition; class is positively the best. All applications for this limited class should now be made to PROP. BAILEY at his private lesson studio, 70 Bank street. Ppea dally. r t GOVERNOR ODELL. y. Miller of Cortland; engineer, E. A. Bond of Jefferson; attorney general, H. B. Coman of Madison; judge of court of appeals, William E. Werner of Mon roe. f: The candidates, with three excep tions, are at present state officers. The planks in the platform which attracted most attention were those protesting against combinations and trusts and the declaration for Improved canals. ; The platform also indorses the ad ministration of President Roosevelt and Governor, Odci,'( calls attention to the abolition of , the direct tax, dis courses on the economy that has char acterized the administration of state affairs, considering largely increased responsibilities; congratulates Presi dent Roosevelt for laying the founda tions of local government in the Philip pines, indorses he relief furnished lo cal education . in the state, calls for good roads and improved canals, in dorses the constitutional amendment, allowing the legislature to regulate the hours of -labor f ot Hvorkihgmen,1 calls fbr the preservation of he 'protective tariff tin the interest of the working man,' favors legislation to 'get r more speedy results in supreme court ac tions, favors a high standard of state care for the Insane with a care to care ful expenditure, favors appropriations for the forest preserves and favors rec ognition of the veterans of all . wars. The friction which developed the first day of the convention and which threatened to result in a party breach had entirely disappeared when the del egates met to name the ticket. Sena tor Piatt said that if he made any as persions on Mr. "Woodruff he had for gotten them. Mr. Woodruff failed to remember any criticism of Senator Piatt, v-:,r- v. - : Governor Odell ' left early in the morning after having effected the re tirement of Mr. Sheldon, and the dele gates almost as a unit approved of the decision. ;r . V" '.''. '; , Senator Hlgglns, who was named by the convention for lieutenant governor, .was the. original candidate of Senator Piatt. V ' ,,, , ; y Mr. Sheldon said after the conven tion: "I have positively no grievance. My business connections, it would seem, bid fair to lay the ticket open to criticism had I been nominated, partic ularly in view of the fact that before the convention such criticisms had be-' gun to be made." , A committee of representative lead ers of the. party was appointed to meet in Albany Oct. 7 and officially notify the nominee? of the1 convention. One of the surprises of the day was the ' announcement that George W. Dunn, chairman of the Republican Btate committee, would not be, a candi date for congress In the Thirtieth con gressional district to succeed Con gressman Ray, who resigned to accept an appointment as United States dls--trict . judge. The candidate for con gress in that district will be John Dwight of Tompkins county. Chairman Dunn was induced to re tire from the congressional race be cause it was believed that his services will be needed to conduct the cam paign. He is a member of the state railroad commission, and it had been planned that if he was elected to con , gress he would resign the commission ership and that Congressman Sherman of Utlca would succeed. him. Now that Mr. Dunn is out of the race for con gress Mr. Sherman will be a candidate Cor re-election to congress. Deadly Duel In Florida. OCALA, Flu., Sept. 25 In a duel be tween Moses Brown and W. T.
