THE FRUIT L'MOX.
Kessrs. Platt and Gregory's Reasons for With
drawing From the Association.
Sacramento, May —At a special meeting
of the California Fruit Uniou, held In San Fran

W. E. Strong & Co., who 1» President of the
uulou. and Eu^eue J. Gregory of Gregory Broth
ers & Co., a Diiector and member of the Execu
tive C mm ttee, tendered their resignations and
withdrew from the union. Much dissatisfaction
■uioug promiueut members of the onion and
tome of ihe heaviest shippers las existed (or
some tune past, the principal cause being that
but few ••hippers have been actively Identified
with the organization, aud ihe larger pro
ponton of the heavy union expenses ha-,
in consequence, lalien on a few. Messrs. P.att
am Gregory were Interviewed aud stated
tint in tt:elr judgment the machinery
of ll:e uulon was not a practical method for the
handling ana disposition of California fruits;
that their withdrawal was not caused by per
sonal leasons nor for the purpose of cieattng
eompellllou or antagonism against the Kruil
Union or similar organizations, but to secure
more piactical and satl»!acloiy methods for the
proper disposition of California products; that
California fiull has become an acceptable article
lo the East and is bring sought for by responsi
ble dealers all over the Ciiuutiy. ■•What is de
sired I' to have Eastern dealers handle our pro
ducts more extensively th.v ever. We wain to
cucuuiaee them, as far r.s possible, to spread the
(mil over the country and Introduce It into as
many cbanuels as possible. This general result
cannot be obtained II dealers are obliged to pay
tribute to some fruit concerns, such as the Fruit
Union or any eiuuisr combination that might
&cciv to coutiol or regulate the disposition."

Many Novelties Before the Pub

Good Houses to Bee " The Senator," "The
Highest Bidder," " The Empress," Etc.
Concert— General Mention.
After an absence of nearly six years Mile,
lihea, the charming Kelpian actress, made tier
reappearance in this ciiy at the Baldwin last
evening in a new historical play, from the peu of
Albeit Koland liaveu, entitled "Josephine, Em
press of the French." The story Is founded on
the divorce proceedings between Josephine
and her royal husband. Napoleon Bon
aparte. The principal Incidents are the
arrival of the unwelcome tidings of the
death of the Prince of Irbllaud, the
Emperor's piesutnptlve heir, the divorce, the
pailini:, birth of the Kins of ltotne, meeting be
tween Josephine and the Empress and the death
of the former. The play is ol too lugubrious a
cliaiaciei to be popular, a heavy (.'loom running
i mill through It. There Is not a glimmer of com
edy to lelieve Its southerners.. It Is not badly
written, but It Is wrongly conceived. The story
as it Is 1 lloMed dues not Interest the spectator,
only seiving to weary. Last night's audience
was kindly disposed, it was easy lobe seen thai
they weie bored at times unit that their ap
plause was often Intended as encouragement to
the players and nut as appreciation of the play
wright's work. At times one often wondered at
the laboied manner In which the play was run
ning, whether it was the actors or the playwright
that was at fault, In our opinion, It was one
ami the other. Mile. Khea was particularly
happy in her Impersonation of the unfortunate
Empress Josephine, She bag, however, evi
dently searched the best historical records In her
eudtavi.'is to give reality and life to tbe
Character. Her devotion to the Emperor
was distinctly marked aud her resignation on
learning that It whs necessary lor her hiisb.ind's
ambition that she should be divorced aud be
many again lv order to obtain an heir— she hav
lug born htm no children— waa very toucliing.
Her partlui: with the Emperor aud Hie
death scene were admirably acted. Her work
was somewhat mat red by her, at limes, in
distinct uuerauce, as wi.eu the situation de
manded a rapid delivery it was Impossible
to follow her at all. She was called before the
curtaiu several limes and was the recipient of
several handsome floral offerings. Her costumes
were very costly and becoming. Mr. William
Harris made up splendidly as the Emperor
.Napoleon, and ins excel cut treatment of the
Character showed great care and siudy. Mr. J.
M. Fiaucojur, a youug Califoinlau, as Talley
laud, an Important role, would have been very
acceptable had he been moie distinct In tin ap
pearance. Miss li II Van Mcle.ll would have
made a pleasing Pauline liouaparie had she
been less artificial. The remaining characters
were moderately well filed, liuea's engagement
is for one week only. Saturday will be thu last
Mile. Ithea was welcomed by a full and fash
ionable audience. At the cud 01 the second act
a tloral niece in the 101111 of a ship four fret Innh
and three leet long was passed over the fool
lights. Mie also received many other large a:. d
beautiful flower pieces of rate and costly blos
soms. The costumes worn by the actie-s weie
01 II. it most beautiful and expensive materials,
and made in Hie most correct style of the times
in which the unhappy Josephine lived.
There was nothing noticeable in the toilets of
the ladies in the audience, wraps and light bon
nets with dark dresses being the rule.

Went with a pood deal of verve, notwithstanding
the delay in raising the curtain. It presented to
the audience some uew phases of national legis
lation; that Is, not uew 10 communities east of
the mountains, who aie nearer to the sacred soil
of Washington, 1). C, than we are, but fresh 10
us people of Ihe extieme West, who are foolish
enough 10 believe mat the business ol a Senator
aud a Ilepiesenutlve is to legislate for
the people al large, or at least for
the dislilct lepresinted, Instead of lor
Hie luieieMs of private Individuals. Mr. David
11. Lloyd, who wrote this play, was a. Tribune
io. respondent in Washington (or many years,
aud theiefore was competent to give a true iu
wmd view of matters aud ilnugii in ihe Federal
capital. He lias, no doubt, done this In "The
Senator." and from the. standpoint the author
has taken, in pointing out the i Hurls, made by
Seuaior Hannibal Kivci (Mr. W. H. Crane)—ef
foils incited by seui internal causes mainly — 10
push the "General Aimtroug claim," we have
a most amusing comedy and one that ought to
■laud a draw for a mouth.
Mr. Crane, who sumalns the lending character,
has Improved in his methods as a cometiian.
One could see, however, thai he was somewhat
Uusieied last evening, owing to a comparatively
new audience and the novelty of the situation.
The trouble with htm Is that his manner lacks
contrast. tie Is all "no." ; ,.,,i u lO Incessant
rattle becomes a llllie wearisome. He bas sur
rounded himself with a very good company, aud
in nearly eveiy individual v Iran Is given of
legislative people who were known to the Wash
ington public aud a gteal deal of Interest
was on this account centered lv the
comedy when It was produced lv the national
cat Hal. Lieutenant George Schuyler, U. S. A.
(Mr. T. I). Frawiey), is oue of those pictures
drawn from real life; so Is Isaiah Sharpies* (Mr.
William In- it), an ex-Cougiessman ; Alexander
Armstrong (Mr. Geoige F. Devcie), Secretary of
State, and Count Ernest yon Stiahl (Mr. Henry
Bergman), an Australian dlplouiale. In the
female portion of the cast we bave a
typical lobbyist In the person of Mrs. Ueorgle

an even rein with Senator Hannibal
■ lilveis himself mi the luteresl the character pos

" a susceptible young widow," and is a remark
able, vivacious and handsome woman. Mrs.
Barry mine has a good deal of the acting spirit
of iier famous mother. Miss Jaue Stuart, who
persouales Josi- Armstrong, is an Ingenue,

Hi" Highest Bidder.
There was no particular rush to see Mr. E. 11.
Sotheru and company In "The Highest Bidder"
at the Mew California. The atidlioiiuiu was com
fortably tilled aud the comedy— Mr. Sothiu's
original success— was enjoyed by the audieuce.
The piece Is quite well Known to our theater
going public, mo there is no need of going into
detail, ua did not see a Mile ol change for th ■
better lv Mr. S. from ihe tlOJe when
he played Jack Haminertun of Hie auc
tion linn of llainmeiloii. Mallet & Co,
lv this city at the Baldwin. Iv
fact, the auction scene In the second act— Ibo
pilucipal one lv the piece— where the Larches
piopeuy Is knocked down to the highest bidder,
the bidder being himself, aclinic as auctioneer,
was hardly as effective as when we saw it on the
Brsl occasion. The acting is clogged with man-
isms In every scene, clogged by tbat English
Impasslveuess and nil admirarl aUeclaliou which
serves as a check upon the natural expression of
emotion, and which has become simply a bore
beioie tbe footlights.
The Browne Symphony Concert.
The J. Lewis Biowue second orchestral con
cert took place last evening at Odd Fellows' Hall.
The place was filled with a very select audience,
and considering the many changes that had to
be made In the personnel of the orchestra the
couceil may bo styled a gratifying success. Mr.
Biowne has shown his retiued taste hi the selec
tions winch formed his lnlere>tliiß programme
and his good intentions could bring .splendid result
If the musicians would only be willing to re
hearse as often as possible. The orchestra as it
now stands lacks, geueially apeaklug, more de
cision of attack and th.it steadiness necessaiy 10
make a perlecl ensemble. However, we were
agreeably Miipiised tv hear the elegant ovcituie
from Qolduiark's opera, "Sakuntala," wiih
many shades and good coloring. This over
ture. Is a spontaneous piece of music, which
adheres, perhaps, to the Mendelssohuiau style
rather than to the modern noisy and seOMUioual
iiiuuiicr; it contains a gracelul melody claverly
Intersected by a counter-melody, the whole be
ing impiticuated with a singular Uilental flavor.
We must also particularly mention the execu
tion of the "Albunib.att' by Wanner, tran
scribed for violin and orchestra by Wlihcluij
Mr. Ritzau played Its obllgato with good pQect.
I.ISZT WAS WELL, KI'IitKSKNTI.])
By his sparkling Rhapsodic Uongroise No. 2,
which was perioinied with a dash ana color that
provoked a waiui encore, and his symphonic
pr.ein, '• Lameut aud Triumph of Tasso," which
gained a loud applause for Its Intrinsic beamy
mid neat Interpretation. Tills syuipiionlc poem
lacks toe depth nnd sublimity ot tne old gieat
wasters, but shows Liszt's affluent productive
ness, his power of harmonic modulations which
seems inexhausiible.aud a rich variety of rhyihm
which imp.li to the composition a marked in
tensity ol life: the brilliant orchestration demon
strates again Liszt's vivid Imagination.
ANOTHEIt m .mi:i:k,
Which cannot be passed in silence was tie one
ovdic.i.ed to the two pieces by the eminent
American composer, Frederick Grant Gteasou
nuw inuMC.il critic of the New York Tribune.
The Hi si was the Introduction 10 his opera, ■Otho
Viscoutl" and the secoud (he ■•Priests' March,"
from his other opeia, "Moutezuiua." The sec
oud is a more melodious piece than the hist, but
Its melody lacks novelty and tin) first is more
oriental in Us abstrtiseness. Mr. lileasitu has
made his studios in Leipsle and Berlin mid
he belongs 10 the ultra- Waguerian school.
Ceitainly Ihe two fragments we have hoard
show command of his ait, but we cannot admire
altogether his tendencies, which are In perfect
accord with the nitin -exaggerated Wagueilan
Ideas. The true and healthy mission ol music
for a composer should b« that which pleases
without fatiguing the mind of the listener while
uialnlatiiiiiK an elevated character.
mi: TWO VOCAL NUMBERS

The sweet rotnanza by t,iucii also showed to ad

expected, Mr. Louis Heine's solo on the 'cello,

of the evening, ills lechulc, phrasing and 110
