GLASSS BLOWN BY MACHINERY A New Factor Appears In a Conser- : vative Trade. ; "This' is th- beginning of the end of the glass blower's trade," said a mem ber of that craft yesterday, as he stood near one of the factories of the com pany in Alexandria, where blowing machines are installed. And he add ed with a sigh: "It will be necessary to operate a few machines for a year or tw, but the time will come when when boys and girls can be employed more profitably and men will disap pear from the glass trade just as they have from the shoe shops and other factories of the country. "The men who are in the closed factory can be plainly heard outside at; work, on the machines which are to io revolutionize the glass industry of the country and make the blower-s trade a thing of the past. The ma chine is- the . invention , of John H. Lubbers of Altoona. Pa., .who was once a glass blower. A company Is now backing his invention with a capital of $20,000,000. The company which controls' the patent and has organized a concern '" to manufacture the ma chines has closed",, its -0 factories throughout the country " for the pur pose of Installing the device In all Its plants, and when the manufacture of glass.ig resumed this fall hundreds of blowers will find that there Is no lon ger, employment for them. 4 The blower has been tho autocrat of the past, for both the trust and the in dependents manufactured in the same way, but that now that the former possesses' such a marked advantage ly controlling the machines, the inde pendents believe that, the day is not far distant when anything but ma chlnerblowit glass will be rare in the market. In other words the machine owners will be the only manufactu-. r--rs of vlndow glass. " The cutters and flattens through out; the state alfe feeling secure be cause the manufacture of more glass means more work for them, but it is possible that their trade will be in vaded by many blowers who will find themselves without, work. While the trades are separate and distinct, the hlpwers have been so closely related to the cutters and fiatteners in their work that they have more than - a general knowledge of the two trades, and, with a little knowledge, may be come proficient workmen. The cut ters and fiatteners see a posibility for trouble when the employing compa ny Is as independent as the use of ma chines x will make it. Many of the blowers are already leaving the places where the ma chines are being installed and the peo ple with whom they do business sin cerely regret the necessity' that takes them away. Nearly all the.Jlowrs flr Belgians and have laree families. nd the local nerc hants have found that they are liberal spenders. Some of the blowers allow their wives $20, April 21 Nellye Reed's dancing academy reception. April 23 Prof Bailey's 'subscription assembly. April 25-May 2 A. O. H. and Dadies' auxiliary union fair.

Theodore Kremer-s great heart play, "The Fatal Wedding," which opens at Poll's this evening for the remainder of the week with a matinee on Satur day, takes its title from the fourth and last act of the play, showing the inter ior of Grace church, New York, Il luminated at nlglht during a wedding ceremony when the adventuress is shot to death by her paramour on the steps of , the altar with the sacred words on her Hps that are about to wreck the life of the man whose name she would have borne. Again It is the wages of sin Is death. A more telling and dra matic climax has never been imagined. It serves to reunite husband and wife, who have been estranged through the evil influence and despicable lies of a wanton woman, and all, ends brightly and out of the gloom and tragedy we go home, satisfied that the two lovers emerge at last into the clear, bright day and live happily afterwards, as all well constructed romances, should end. The character of the -."little mother" is the one charming and redeeming feat ure of the evening. , Madeline Clark, the clever child actress, is the center of attraction and thoroughly at home in her portrayal of the part. She seems to take a place in our hearts and life. What a pathetic picture she presents, amidst' the squalor of their attic home, protecting and supporting her invalid mother and brother by car ing for the other dhlldren in the alley. And the few pennies she gets on the street with her papers. The . engage ment will be played at popular prices. VAUDEVILLE AT THE JACQUES '.' ' The distinguished Valerie Bergere has certainly won. general favor by her admirably artistic acting in "Billie's j First, Love" at the Jacques, and the ' act is more talked of than any comedi ,'etta that has been oYred on this stage.' No one. can see Miss Bergere for a minute without realizing that she is. a most consummate mistress of the art of- acting entering into every possi ble, emontion that., it -is possible ?to portray on the stage and illustrating it with a delicacy of expression and effectiveness of execution that are as charming as they are ' artistic. In deed it would be impossible to concen trate into twenty-eight minutes more I fun and emotion and genuine dramatic incident than Jte tjone-in "Billie's First Love." And it is for this reason that it is winning approval as the very best playlet yet offered on this stage. The remainder of the bill is very fine, too, as presented by the Onrl Family. Bar ry and Halvers, 1 Claudius and Cor bln, Larkins and Patterson, May Walsh,1 Dwyer and Edmonds and the vltagroph. Prices are 10, 20 and 30 cents; afternoons 10 and 20 cents, la dies 10. 5 a week for the expenses of the table alone, and the grocers in the glass making towns have all been prosper ous. . ' 7 With few exceptions, alsd, the blow ers are a quiet,, orderly class, and the migration of several hundred of these workmen with their large families means great loss to tl e local business men. The majority !of those who are preparing to leave will go to Smith port, Pa., and Independence, Kan., though a few will locate Sit Terre' Haute and work for , an indep- v- nt plant at that place. Even then it seemed incredible to many that a machine could supplant them In their trade, and It, was not till the plants were actually ensed that they realized that the company Was a earnest and that the blowers must pre pare to meet changed conditions. A movement has I een started at Anderson, Alexandria,, Muncle, Or estes, Matthews and other places, to form co-operative factories and enter upon the manufacture of glass in op position to the company, but the more conservative blowers do not believe that they would be able to Compete with the machines,- if these will do what Is claimed for them, nor do they think the company would have gone to such enormous expense unless the tests had demonstrated, beyond doubt that the machines are a success, both in re spect of the making of glass and in saving expense in manufacture. New York Sun. , Australia's Miniature Volcanoes..

MINSTRELS. Quinlan and Wall's minstrels Mon day evening at Poll's. ROBERT EDESON. Robert Edeson, one of the new stars in the constellation, made his first ap pearance in this city in a stellar role last night at Poll's theater and so well did he play the leading part in Rich ard Harding Davis's "Soldiers of For tune" that he endeared himself in the hearts of the large audience present, especially those of the young ladles. The entire , play hag been staged by Augustus Thomas and is produced under the management . of Henry B. Harris. As the title of the play suggests, it deals considerably with soldiers and as the scene of the play lies in Valen cia, the capitol of the republic of Olan cho, South America, it would not be complete unless the South Americans, the Spaniards, were permitted to start a revolution and kill the president and one or two others. The story of the play is briefly, told when it is said that several Americans have discov ered valuable Iron mines In Valencia from which there is an enormous out put. The government of the republic receives" .ten per cent of the - product but the opponents of the president are dissatisfied and claim that the govern ment should receive one-half. They are led by a general of the army who is willing to be bribed by the promoters of the mines, Robert Clay, who is im personated by Robert Edeson. A re bellion arises, the president is assas sinated while reviewing the troops, the foreigners are in much danger When all are saved by the landing of a num ber of marines from a United States gunboat. As . in every ; war story the hero performs some remarkable deeds. He is very, clever, full pf nerve, brav ery, courage, quick-witted, impulsive and ever 5lert. "Oh,' the young la dies might have .; said "if there were only such men: in the world we would lay. all we have at their feet." But, alas for the young ladies, such heroes can only be seen on the stage. It is not unnatural, therefore, that Blanche Hall, as Hope Langham, a pretty, win some, "captivating American girl, full of humor and illusions should fall deep in love with ' Robert Clay. It would have been "unnatural if she bad not. It is a pretty; love story that Mr Davis has entwined among the intri cacies, plots and rebellions of the Sol diers of Fortune! -', He treats It, well handles it skillfully, but never allows it to obstruct the real plot of the play. Robert Edeson played the part 1 of Robert Clay, the cool, suave,' promoter of the iron mines, the bold." nervy, scheming) clever soldier, the manly gallant lover In a very clever manner; and as for the love part of it he had an able assistant in Miss Hall, who .is a clever -little lady.- He had many assistants in the war part of the play."' the . most conspicuous 'of,, wjiom was Harry Harwood. who shared with him in the honors of the evening. The other members of the cast plfl yerL their parts , well. : ,- , . , .. .. . . The "Soldiers of Fortune" is. a play which is .very interesting. , Though the plot is not very deep nor the acting very heavy, yet It is a good vehicle in which Robert Edeson may ride on his first trip as a star. It is certainly a success if success is regarded as, pleas ing the audience and sucuring ap plause. There - were many curtain calls after each act last night. . LINCOLN'S LAST OFFICIAL ACT. He Pardoned a Young Man .Who- Had Been Condemned to Death as a Spy. Abraham Lincoln's last 'official act was to pardon; a man under sentence of death, charged with being a Con federate spy. Before the Civil ' war, Allmon and George Vaughan were res idents of Canton, Missouri. AUnion entered the Union army. His-brother espoused the cause of the Confederacy, and in due time became a member of the staff , of General Mark E Green, an old friend and ... neighbor. George Vaughan, after the battle of, Shiloh, undertook a secret visit to his home at Canton. He wished to see his own family and carry messages to the wife of General Green. He passed undis covered through the Union lines, spent some days in Canton, and was return ing to his command when he was cap- L tured and jailed at. Palmyra, Missouri, but was soon transrerrea to at jouis. There he was tried by courtmartlal, and, though he stoutly denied that he entered the Union lines for other than the purposes already named, was sen tenced to be shot as a spy. Allmon Vaughan, who was then a captain? in the Union army appealed to Senator John B. Henderson to save his brother. Henderson laid the case before Edwin M. Stanton who, after investigation, decided: that George Vaughaiv. was guilfy and that' there could be no change in the sentence that had been passed upon him. Then Henderson appealed to Mr Lincoln, at whose instance an order was issued for a new trial. This resulted in a second verdict of guilty. " Again appeal was made to the president, who ordered still another trial, but a third time a courtmartlal pronounced against the accused man's innocence. Henderson, however, continued the fight for the young man's life. It was in the spring of 1865, and, in urging the president to exercise clemency, the senator insisted that, -the war being practically over, -Vaughan's pardon would be In the interest of peace and conciliation. "See Stanton, and tell him this young man must be released," said Mr Lincoln. "I have seen Stan ton, and he will do nothing," protest ed Henderson. "See him again," was the reply; "and, if he will do nothing, come back .to me." Stanton would do nothing, and, early in e evening of April 14, Henderson again sought the president, whom he found dressed for the theater. Mr Lincoln shook his head, when the senator reported the outcome of his interview with Stanton; then, without a word, he seated him self at his desk, wrote a few lines on a sheet of paper, and handed It to Hen derson. It was an order for Vansrhnn'st I unconditional release and pardon, and it was the last official act of the presi dent's E?y-Frasi the April Success. ' TRUE L.

' -',:'. Whenever a man in society is guilty of obtru- sive self assertion; whenever he thrusting himself into the conversation of others; whenever his talk is almost exclusively occupied with himself and his own do ings, he shpws at once that, in the, true sense of the word, he is not, a gentleman. If, again, he shows, no consideration for the feelings of others; if he ignores their susceptibilities; if his conversation has no delicacy, or reserve in it, he will at once bo recognized by all present as lacking in the qualities of a gentleman. A delicate, sympathy, a refined, desire to give no needless pain by heedless re marks, 'a fine regard for the feelings of others, a bearing full of courtesy which has not in it the last touch of condescension all these are marks of a true gentleman.
