James Brown Potter's New Play. LONDON , Auztist 13. [ New York Herald Cable Special lo the BEK. | Additional In terest was last night given to Mrs. James Brown Potter's appearance In her new play by the publication yesterday of a cable extract - tract from a New York society journal to the tlfcct that the domestic broach between Mrs. ind Mr. Potter was final , and that ho was relegated to the lonely condition ot Mr. Lily Langtry and Mr. Violet Besaudu. The rumor also was prevalent In London that In futuio Airs. Potler would play under the name of Cora Urquhart Potler. This evening's audience found that again she had selected a bad play , In fact worse than either "Man and Wife" or "Civil War. " It Is ono In blank verse , written by a lady under the pseudonym of Uoss Nell , and who throughout the evening sat In the front orchestra stall under the escort of James Davis , editor of the Bat. The audience filled the boxes , stalls and dross circle , but the pit , top tier and gallery wcro prudently thin. Tc be sure , . fashion U out of town , bu the American colony was sparsely represented and the only notable American ! present were Murat llalstead and Senatoi Hawley , who from modest seats In the bach dress circle , watched the play and drank in qulcr draughts of Spanish history. The drama proved to bo of an old time model of the days when 1. P. Cook played In London and Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Wallack. Jr. , In New York , when "Lovo's Sacrltice" and the "Foundling of the Forest" were the Joys o : ourgrandfcUhors. It Is called "Loyal Love" and scorns of no country or period. It has no uudcr plot and Is not lightened bj any humor or low comedy. It is filled with stock phrases of the pump-handle school such as "Methlnks , " "Oh , say not so , " "Whj comes ho not ? " "Thou wrong'st thyself , " etc. How It passed Chamberlain Is a mys tery. 1 counted the use of the Dolly's name fifteen times , and there are many such qu cs tlonablo speeches as Ihis ono : "I swear by th t clornal wrath of God. " Ilerelsaskctchof the plot. A king played by an actor who in hg uronnd face very much reminded mo ol Blalno , has a son with the vulgar name ol Pedro , played by Bellow , and which naino li by Mrs. Potter pronounced "Peed. " To the latter lady , named Inez , ho la secretly mar rlod , but his rank is unknown i her. The king has n minister will the traditionally villainous naino of Gnu zales , who hates Bellow and this is admlrabl ) played by Wlllard. lie discovers the levi secret and blasts their happy bowers by de coylng her to his castle , where ho vatul ; makes love to her himself. Meanwhile Bel low dissembles , but finally tracks Mis. Pol tor out. While ho Is tracking Wlllard , wh has her goalcr under his thumb , employs th latter to iwlson her lover. Tuo latter , louche by Mrs. Poller's reference to his dead daugt tcr , administers only asleopingdraught Th incident Is boldly stolen from N. P. Willli play of "Tartcsta. " Bellow comes In , find her dying aud next dead and Qonzalei triumphant , but the populace , forcing the ! way , announce that the king Is dead an proclaim Bellow as monarch. The gaoler , capital mclodratnlc actor , then with severa "Ha has" announces his little game , Mr Potter revives and becoming soon a happy , while as to Oouzales , it ! oil with his head , BO muc for Buckingham. Bellow , etc. The play utterly devoid of dramatic sequence in siti atlon and of concentration of Interest. It ' fearfully talky , forcy and puerile until thei comes a few dramatic crackers In the la ! act , and Is full of plagiarism diluted Inf dullness. In her denunciation of Oonzale she was unequal. At one time by a bit < rhodomontadu she raised aho.uty laugh eve ; in the stalls and boxe ? . She posed sweetl Eeveial limes In Bollew's arms an ho made a capital swcelhoa al Iho business. She drawled feirfully , bt has improved In her pilch of voice. In stas ease , and has much of that maronnotto styl which belongs to tlio Mary Anderson schoo Her millinery was astonishing. Her Ur diess was a blush pink , draped crcpo i chine petticoat of white India silk tulle.

[ CffyrigM 157 ty Jamtt Contort Ucilntt' . ] 1'ABis , ( Tla Harm ) , August IS.-jNe fork lleuld Cable-Special to the BKK. ] Paul JarvU andMciuleur Mali started In their balloon llorla from La Vcl- letlo at a quarter past 7 this afternoon and made a very plucky attempt to ccllpso every thing done In reaching attitudes of Iho air. The aeronals for weeks have been In Iraln * Ing for Ihelr perilous lusk. They have every few days been placed In Iron chambers from which the air was gradually pumped until by an exhaustive process the pressure IB brought down to the lowest that man can bear. Both Captain Jarvls and Mallet have trained thctnaelvcs to such a point that they are ablu to continue breathing when tlio mercury stands at seven Inches and both feel confi dent of Doing able to reach an atllludo ot seventy-seven miles and live to tell the tale. As early as 3 o'clock this afternoon about 100 persons arrived at la Vllletle Ei\s Warms. Among the crowd I noticed Messieurs Mossenct Dcepont , president of the Aeronautic society of Franco , and Colonel Leinat , dclciralo from the Aero nautic society of Washington. At about 6 o'clock the balloon , which was named the llorta , after Guy do Maupesant's now novel , began to swell out Its sides and look some thing like a balloon. Captain Jarvls , who , ls an active , wiry , determined looking man of shiny shallow complexion , black eye brows and blacK beard , then appeared from thu tent where ho had been sleeping during the night , and put Into the basket of the balloon three aneroid barometers , two hygrometers , an electroscope , a compass , Iwo glass baleens provided with vacuiii destined lo receive samples of air let In at different attitudes and two plulo- graphlc instruments , all of which wcro well sealed carefully with the seal of the Figaro newspaper , under the auspices and at the expense of which the ascension was under taken. Captain Jaivls then put Into the basket two little while pigeons and two llttlo yellow guinea pig. Al half-past 5 M. Marj , member of the Instllulo of France , raado a mlnuto examination of Captain Jarvls' physical condition and wrote down his pul sation , which was 95 , respiration S3 dyna- inometerlc pressure , which was 40 , 33 and 34 in the left hand and 83 , 40 and 35 in the right hand. At C o'clock the three small balloons , containing 1,200 litres of pure oxygen , were tied to the edge of the basket , and 400 kilogrammes of sand ballast were atlached to the ballot. At 7 o'clock M. Mallet , a tall , fine-looking blonde , with blue eyes and reddish moustache. Jumped Into the balloon and all ready to get under way. Both Jarvls and Mallet wore whlto duck trousers , navy blue flannel jackets and caps , and stuffed cotton in their eari. They looked plucky and determined. The weather was fine aUd clear. In reply to my inquiry , Captain Jarvls said : "This is ray two hundred and fifteenth ascension. " Then In a ringing voice he shouted , "Let go , " and at fourteen minutes past 7 the Horla rose slowly and gracefully. Everybody waved their hats and shouted good bye. "Morel , " came the reply from Jarvls and the balloon took a turn to wards the northwest , then towards the northeast , and in twenty-live minutes was invisible. nOULANGEU'S SUCCESSOR. Iho Now French War Minister Win ning Oolilcu Opinions. ( Copt/riflM 1SS1 by James Gordon Hcnnctt. ] PAIHS , August 13. [ New York Herald Cable Special to the BEE | The dog days are over. Cool northerly breezes , steady temperature 34 degrees centigrade with blight Septomber-llko weather seem to reign supreme , and Paris , although deserted , Is still delightful. Not a minister or a do puty , nor scarcely a politician , * remains behind. General Ferron , minister of war , Is , however , at Fotalnblcau , working like a Trojan at his project of adding nine cavalry and eigh teen Infantry regiments to the lighting strength of the French army. General Ferron is a tall , line-looking man , with grizzled hair and moustache , lie is quite ns handsome and dashing looking as his fa mous predecessor. General Ferron is rapidly winning golden opinions everywhere by the earnest , unostentatious perseverance wllli whicli ho goes about his work. Besides being very popular in the army he has the firm sup- portof all modern republicans , royalists and imperialists , and especially the latter , whoso convictions that General Boulanger is. aftei all , merely a sort of a French "Buffalo BUI , " have not weakened by the publication ol . General Boulanger to Madam Katkolf ana tc 11 half a dozen poisons In Russia and Franco. It Is largely owing to thu dignified atllludo of General Ferron that the ministry has foi the moment the support of the nation and pleases everybody except the extreme radi cals of Paris , Lyons and Marseilles , while abroad it has the good wishes of all the sov ereigns of Europe from the pope down t < the prince of Monaco.

TOE UTE INDIAN OUTBREAK , Governor Adams Will Not Wait on the National Authorities. COLOROW AND THE COWBOYS. Ho Bna a Wholesome Ucspoct for Their Prowess and They Arc Anx ious to Deal With Illiu-Aiako Htm a "Uood" Indian. Troops Ordered to Utonwood. DENVER. Col . .August 13.-Spoclal | Tele , gram to the BEE.J No news has been re ceived from Meeker to-day , and so far as can bo learned the situation there with regard an outbreak Of the renegade Whlto Uivor Utcs headed by old Colorow , remains the same as when the scene closed last night. Eirly this morning , Governor Adams Instructed the assistant adjutant general to order Captain Goslln's company to proceed at once from Aspen to Glenwood Springs , to bo ready for any emergency that may arise. The order was sent at oncn and a company composed of sixty well-armed men left Aspen at 1 : ! 50 this afternoon and leached Glenwood Springs about 4 o'clock. Adjutant General West , who loft here last night , has already left the railroad and is on a stage , proceed ing toward Glenwood Springs , and on his arrival at that point ho will lind the company in readiness. This small band of state militiamen however hciolcally they may act , would bo no match for Colorow's bundled well-armed bucks , but thu company is on the muster roll of the state military department and volun- tecra can bo added from the cowboys and sel lers , thus forming a company tlmt would spread moie terror among a band of mummi ng Indians than all the blue-coats the gov ernment could run Into the reservation. It lias been suggested that the stale may get nto some such trouble as arose during the astute trouble at Ouray agency , when white men were arraigned "lor violating United Stales laws. But the case is parallel , because - cause the white incn at that time Inflicted punishment on the red-skins on the leserva- tlon. In this case Colorow Is not on any res ervation , but Is on a public cattle ran c. and cowboys and Indians have an equal show. There is no longer any doubt but that the present trouulo began with Sheriff Kendall's effort to arrest some of Colorow's Indians for depredations and on Indictments for horse stealing , lle- forc these charges had been brought there had been other reasons for tioublo with Colo- row. One of these was- the murder of Au gustine several week * ago , and another Kill ing last summer ot Colorow's sister , which he charged to cattlemen. In fact , Colorow and the cattlemen Imvy never been on good terms. The cowboys insisted that Colorow's place was on the Ulntnh reservation and Colorow insisted that thu cowboys had no business on the land at all. lint the Indians have alwaj s had profound respect lor the lighting qualities of the cowboys and the story told of achlef who requested the Wash ington authorities for a canon witn which to kilt them Is as Instructive as amuslni : . In conversation with the UF.I : rcpiesuntativo tins ntternoon Governor Adams said : "I shall not watt on the national authorities in any action I may take , So far I have no dciiulte Information that the Indians really have committed any depredation , and I pro pose to act with all < ? ue caution. I know what the feeling Js onhe part of the cattle men , and that it will not take much encour agement to make them cut into the Indians. I don't wish any hasty action taken. What I have done so far I nave only done In the way of taking the precaution which any prudent man would take under the same cir cumstances , lime sent the adjutant gen eral to Glonwood Springs to bo on hand , and 1 have moved one company to that town for an emergency. We will do nothing hastily nor rashly , but I know what a nuis ance Colorow has been to the people ple there , and I am ready to say that If the fellow has laid hand on a citl/on of Colorado the stale of Colorado will take care that ho does not def f < o any more. I do not ask any aid from Washington. If the authoiltlcsdon't choose to give It wo can get volunteers enough from our state troops to take care of Colorow's band and of all who choose to join htm from Uintah aeency.

Fort Steele is about tifty miles north of Meeker on the White Ulver and some very rough and wild country would Have to bo traveled by the small band of soldiers stationed heroin order to reach the trouble with the chances that all would bo massacred before the journey was half com pleted. The troops' at Fort Duchesno arc jiractlcally powerless to aid Meeker. They number only a few companies of Coloiado infantrv and these conrpaules are poorly equipped as the recent fire at the fort burned rip 815,000 woith of supplier , and if thev wcro well equipped they could not give Meeker aid In case of a sudden at tack upon the place , as the present outliieuk seems to be.

More than the usual number of "stop limit orders" was received , and fluctuations In prices at times were so wide that thu orders ot cus tomers could not be compiled with. The government crop re port was nrespnted * and tended to show very little change In the crops of small grain.Reports rezarding corn and liay ; however , were decidedly unfavorable , taking Into consideration the brilliant pros pects of two months ago. though the report indicates that the yield of each will bo about bO per cent of an average crop. Tl.ls Is a bPt- ter outlook than anticipated by the ti.ule gen erally , and the Impression prevails that tome damasre has been sustained since the begin ning of August , when the reports wcio com piled. Kaliis in some sections within the past two days have Improved the outlook somewhat , especially for grass and hnv. Kc- ceiptsof grain have ooen moderately free at all western markets , though the agciegato movement Is not as largo as at this tune last year. The shipping movement has been quite free , both to eastern and foreign mar kets , being encouraged to some extent by the low rates of frelchts prevailing. Priceo for nearly all the leading cereals have Improved slightly and talrly well sup ported to the close , though shippers aio a llt tlo slow to follow anv advance In pi Ices , more particularly those In the expert trade. Foreign markets have ruled a little easier , owing chiefly to the Improved harvest pros pects in the leading European countries. Stocks of now grains are Increasing , but not as rapldlv as at this time last year. Supplies of provisions are moderately large , though the distribution is quite liberal. Receipts of hogs have not been very large at principal western market" , but the ill rivals of cattle are unusually liberal and attributed to the short supply of food owing to the drouth and extreme hot weather. The packing of hos in the west shows a further shrinkage com pared with the returns of last year. DK. CUUItAN'8 PICNIC. Contradictory Statements as to Ills Apologizing Tor His Action.

The meeting was led by Itev. C. 11. Savldgo of Springfield. After a few appropriate opening remarks and the singing of a good old Methodist hymn , Father Van Anda led Ina prayer , tlio tenderness of which touched every heart. Then followed fouiteen earnest , ringing testimonies that bore ampleovldence that the old Methodist lira was still burning. Father Savldgo was converted at the ago of sixteen In February , ls > i > . Ills parents were Presbyterians but ho was converted at a Methodist ie\lval In the days when Method ists would now and then Indulge in a shout. In the davs when Father Van Anda was converted , "Methodists" wcro everywhere despised because they were very weak , very few , very wild and very noisy. 1'or a long while he kept away from the Methodist re vivals , but tinally went to a camp meeting , aud there on October a ) , ISA to use his own language , "got low enough in the straw to give his heait to God , and sot up a shout loud enough to tell people all around of what ho had done.

He was also con- crlcd at a Methodist revival January 5 , blO. Brother Sam Gregory came next , and spoke of his early life in his own character istic way that often provoked a laugh and as often caused a tear to start from the eye of ho listener. His grandfather was converted .n fho north ot Ireland under the preachtnc of John Wesley. His father was the small est ot six brothers , and weighed 2UO pounds. Ho was converted at the age ot six , and was i "shouter" all his lite. Brother Gregory Jilmsolf was converted In 1844 , his wife being converted the year before , In 1813. Mother NVIlcox , of Ailincton , has been serving God or the past forty-eight years , and says that the journey is only growing brighter and easier all tlio while ; the light from the other world IB already shining across her pathway , and Us mellow glory has softened the lines of her face until they ex press only an abiding sense of peacoand rest. Her presence aud testimony was a benediction. Bister Wlnterstoln was converlcd August 18,184S , making forty-live years of faithful seivlce for the cause of her Master. Sister Close was converted forty-four years ago and Sister Barnard foity-elght years ago. Tholr testimonies were earnest and spoke of an abiding faith even In sorrow and trial. Bio. Sam.
