At lait tlio basohall war It over nnd all now Is peace and harmony , nn < l the boom is on. No lonpcr will the dally press bo filled with meaningless platitude and stn'o disquisitions * on the situation , but from thl on until tbo timpiro takei his .stand behind the plate niul cries "play ball , " tlio news dished up will beef of the liveliest und most interesting descrip tion. Everybody now knows Just where they stand , us the NuUonnl league , Play- era1 league , American tind Western association ? liuvo been consolidated In ono grand nnd colossal bascb.ill . firm , nnd ntrlfo iiiul contention Is ntnn end. And \\lmt a victory hns been scored by the Western nssochitlon In being taken In on equal foot- in K with the National leairuo nnd American iMoclntloti , nnd given share nnd share nllko in all their rights , privileges nnd prerogatives. Tbo Western association Is now n party In the fullest acnso of tbo term to the national agreement. This IssoinctbltigTiinBEKnlmost nlono aud unaided by the westcni press , has sedulously sought to brinp nbout fo'r the jiast four years , nnd to BCO its hopes nnd schemes fulfilled nnd consummated now , nt this 1m- 'jortiint ' juncture In the Krea , fjamc , is n , nnuree of limitless satisfaction and pride * . If Tun lr.i : Is not entitled to tlio credit of bring ing nbout this most beneficial ckanpo , I would lllto to know who Is. At the last annual mccotlng of the Western association the haso ball editor bud n long conversation with President Krauthoff ( that gentleman can only corroborate the statement ) , and the ono burden of bis argument was the necessity of the Western association asserting itself , de manding recognition as a body commensurate in importnnco in alt details with the older bodlusand , demanding an equality in all their rights nnd privilegesmid a volco in nil future baseball legislation. The able president did not ngrco with those sentiments , and ad vanced arguments to sbow how tbo Western association dorlvod greater benefits by re maining whcro she was , nnd by continuing to pay tbo tribute so IOIIK levied on her uy the National league und American association , but bo mndo noconvcrtof Tin : BIE : , although his powers of ratiocination \\cro powerful and winning. Mr. ICrunthoft's partin assur ance , bowovcr , was that bo would deliberate seriously upon tbo mutter. Well , at lust It lias all boon worked OUT just 03 Tin : Bni : urged , und It must not bo imag ined that President Krauthoff or any body else is to bo deprived of any credit which uo- lonirs to them. I'm : BUB accords the fullest meed of prnlso to the gentleman - tloman , and esteems him greatly above tbo majority of so-called basoliall di plomats and generals. Krautboff is all right , and so is TUB BUE , if It must slug Its own praises. Well , to cut a long story short , tbo united meeting of the National league , Western association , American association and the Brotherhood league at Now York Fri day settled tbo wbolo business , as our telegraphic columns have told , anil now active and legitimate operations begin. Parks will bo put In order , players engaged , nnd all the thousand ono details hnont tbo opening of the greatest baseball season , within tbo history of tbo game en- tppetTlnto. All will now bo bustle and ex- 'Citomoat until tbo springtime comes , nnd then what sport there will bo , for there is no outdoor pastlmo that can ever hold n candle to baseball. The local cranks can , now rest easy on the question as to Knell's returning returning hero. If the young man plays ball at all bo will play It right hero at McCormlck park , as one of the principal clauses iu the last grand consolidated agreement restores all players to1 tbo clubs who reserved thorn prior to the Urotbcrhood rebellion. The Ijoenl lliisolmll Situation. Local baseball affairs remain In stau quo , as it wcro. There has been no developments daring tbo post week of a startling or oven interesting nature , other than the signing of ono moro now man by Manager Shannon. This is young Hulllgun , the doughty catcher and brilliant outfielder of last season's Buffalo Brotherhood club. Ho was Stafford's back stop In the city on the lake , nnd was ac corded unstinted prnlso by the local pi-ess up taoro , as his brilliant work deserved. Ho is A stocky young follow , a superb catcher , as well as a fine fielder , splendid base-runner nnd hard left- handed bitter , and in him Manager Shannon says ho tins mi embryo star. Tbo engagement of Halllgan will probably render It necessary for the management to lot ono of its four catchers go , nnd if this should prove the case , i it will bo Urqunhart who will get his re lease. However , ho will not bo lot out until it is positively ascertained whether Stenzol can bo retained or not , which just now seems somewhat problematical , notwithstanding the fact that Omaha undoubtedly has a legiti mate claim on his services. Ho nas asked his prlco for the balance of the season hero lost fall , and naming 3t , was paid In advance. This certainly /usted Omaha with the right to place him on ter reserved list , which was done , but now at this late data Stcnzcl asserts ho signed for ho balaiu-o ot the season only , and was not ' i bo reserved. This , however , is absurd , as Omalia would hnvo been In poor business to have paid any ordinary man a couple of hun dred so Into in the season , and when they wore fighting hard for tnll-ond honors at that. Such a procedure would have been poor financiering , to say the least. So tbo proba bilities are that ho will play hero or nowhoro. It would bo Idle yet n while to attempt to spealc with any degree of certainty as to the make-up of next season's team as n wholo. but it is tolerably sure that a now man will to seen on flrst ; Shannon , second ; Cleve land third , mnybo ; Walsh , short : Knell , 8101101x1 , KHolJorg nnd Clarke in the box ; Hnlligan , Stcnzel , Newman behind tbo plate , nod Cauavnn , Willis and another now man in the outfield ; all subject to a chauga in the event of the securoincnt ot better men. Works will bo allowed to use his own judg ment. If ho wishes to sign with Omaha all well and good ; if ho wishes to go rlsowhero no ono will remonstrate. As to Elmer Cleveland ho will bo retained If a much superior man cannot bo obtained , nnd I doubt If oven his equal can bosccuicd. With utiy- thltig like a little bit of good luclc the ex- president can hold up his end with tbo best of them. A moro accurate and beautiful thrower across the diamond isn't in the busi ness today , and if bo once gets "In bis""good eye , " again , wny , you outfielder's look out ; that's all t A Chnn o Now 1'robablo. For the flrst tlmo sluco the close ot the season , TUB QEK now states that It believes nchnngomtho Western association circuit Is probable. The chnnccs nro that Sioux City nnd possibly Denver will bo gotten rid of , but Just how. Is yet to bo determined.

These two cities hnvo un questionably been the association's mniu-stay for the past four years. All the rest have fussed , Maundered anil threatened , hut Omaha nnd Minneapolis wcro always faithful.

THE LOUNGER IN THE LOBBY , Maarioo Barrymoro Goes Back to Bis Old Love. COMING ATTRACTIONS FOR THE WEEK , What I'nttl HIM to Sny About Good Looks Tlio Companies Hint Have Strnmlod this Year tioonl .Mu sical l ntcrtnliimciita. Maurlco Barryraoro , of whom so much was ixpoctcd , ns a star , hns again linked bis for- uncs with the Miidlson Square stock com- any , happy no doubt to inako so plc.uaut a tort before the squall struck htm full on. What momentous changes a few months nnbriiie nbout 1 It doesn't seem moro than a month ago lint the dratuatlo critics throughout tlia country were trying to see how many bcnutl- 'ul things they could say about Dnrrymoro nut his ambition to join the ranks of tbo stars. Although his premiere effort was to bo undo In a trivial play still ho was looked upon ns ono of the few young men who might succeed to the mantle of either Booth or Bar rett when bis talents had been brightened md mellowed to muho Shakespeare's horous tread tbo stngo ns they should. I admit that there was excellent ground for this belief , for many ot ns recall the credit- ibto support ho gave Helena Modjeslta some . ears ago , showing a wonderfully , rue conception of tlio thoughts uid Ideas which are conveyed In Shakos- je-iro's lines. Tlio wish , thnt nnrrymoro would succeed , was father to the thought , for in all Bohemia there is not n brighter fellow than this prlnco if good follows , llteratcur and feuilletonist .bat ho Is. 'Hut ' "Hecklesi Temple , " which his friend , 3us Thomas , built forBnrrymore , proved to bo a sorry vehicle for the display of the star's ' abilities. Instead of nw.iklng next morning to find himself famous Burrymoro had the pleasant satisfaction of seeing himself "damned with faint pr.ilso" by the newspapers of the mot- ropolis. The play was excoriated. Gus Thomas had in ado another failure. It was u sad ending to bright day dreams. Having signed a contract with J. M. Hill antll the new year , that very ministerial ooklng manager thought ho might recover in part the money ho had put In "Heckles * Temple" by putting Barrymoro on the road with n Cloinencenu Cnso company. To thlnlc was to act with Mr. Hill , and forth with a company was engaged to play "L1 Affaire Glcmoneeau" throughout the country Last wool : the company succeeded In get ting back to Now York heartily sick of the play nnd Its reception bv theater-going poo- [ ilo nnd Barrymoro's tlmo being up with 'liccklcss Temple" Hill ho gladly availed liiiDself of Mr. I'almer's offer to again be come a member of the Madison Square forces. I don't bollovo In the talk which old , but fourth-rate actors Indulge in about the "hal cyon days of the drnmi , " nor am I prone to itiuulgoln reminiscences of the past at the cost of the present. The peopfo of today nro far In advance of their predecessors in almost everything and have n far bolter time tlmn their forefathers ever dreamed of. As to the conditions surrounding the stage , plays todny _ are bettor costumed , are pre sented with bettor scencryand , In handsomer playhouses than they wcro in the time fondly described by aged Thespians as "tho palmy days ot the drahmer. " Uuttluxt whichcausoi alarm among the earnest lovers of tlio stage is the growing paucity of actors and actresses sufllclently schooled and properly equipped to 1111 the great roles which have heeu tmuaed dowu from generation to generation. Speaking of Bnrrymoro brings to mind that his wife , Georgia Brow Barrymore , is still out of the cast of "Tho Senator , " and I nra told by these who should Icnow that It Is not expected that she will piny again this season. Her retirement was a serious blow to Will iam H. Crane , for her presentation of tbo part of the dashing widow was a revelation oven to her warmest admirers of tbo possl bilitics of her genius. It had not before been dreamed that there beat in h r the same oulso whlcti has made her mother's Mrs. Mnlaprop ono of the great est portraitures of the stago. It placed her nt once In the front rank among American comediennes and many oven are of the opiu ion thnt she outranks Agnes Booth. But her part was a trying one and the strain of repeating it night after night , not only thioughout last season , but cvou tbo supplementary summer season when Mr. Crane took his company to the Pnciflo coast , proved too great aud exhausted nature rose iu rebellion. Tlio result is Mrs. Barrymoro is still cpnllnod to the housowith a severe at tack of nervous prostration. Young girls who enviously think of the de lightful time actresses huve smiling and chat ting upon the stngo and receiving the incense of applause and the pjrfumo of llowers , may get some idea of the arduous labor Imposed upon the women of the theater when I tell them that during Mrs. Barry moro's last tkreo performances she fainted twice each night behind the scenes and yet , upon recovering , went upon the stage and laughingly bounced through tbo part. This by some folks may bo considered cruelty to anltnah , and so it is. Had Georgie Drew not boon indirectly coerced into making the trip to San fcVnncisco she might bo a well woman today. She didn't wantsto > go and at the time complained of needing rest iu order to lay up a store of energy for the fall season. Her plea was laughed nt as n woman's whim. She didn't start with tbo company , however - over , nnd an uuder-study assumed thonartof the widow. Then from the Pacific coast came artfully worded descriptions of the success of the actress who had attempted the roll , with viijue suggestions that Mrs. Barrymoro hat bettor look to her laurels. Well , she Is only a woman , nnd It is need less to say what she did. She packed up bor trunks and started for San Francisco on the next train nnd after she reached llioro ulayei with tlio company during the remainder oi the trip. Now she and Mr. Crane as well , are paying the penalty. THE .LOUXOEH. These who attend the performance of "Tho Ironmaster" nt the Grand opera house this evening will not bo disappointed , it is a sterling , standard , highly Interesting drama in live acts that has received the coimncnda tlon of the largest and best critical audiences and newspaper writers in this country nnt England. It will bo produced by the Stuart comedy company , which Is unquestionably the strongest company before the publfo playing at popular prices. The Councl Bluffs Globu says : "Tbo Stuart theater company played 'Tho Ironmaster' to a bif , house at Dohany's last night. The member ! of the company tire skilled in their profession nnd all paru of the play last night wcro car ried out with maikod perfection. Miss Lllah Stuart as Claude Beaullou was exceptionally line. Miss Stuart hits a Una voice , iooc stage presence and is a very clover actress as the largo audience which was present last night can testify. Mr. C.V. . Travis gave a very clover performance of the part of the Ironmaster. Frea W. Barnard , Walter Becker , Miss Hnttlo Ncvillor , James Lo Brandt and Gertrude Hyde were all good in their respective parts. All around the company is ono of the best wo bavo seen It years. " An Important nnd pleasing feature with tno Indies will bo the lovely costumes worn by Miss Stuart , all of them being de signed nnd made by Worttt of Paris. Tlio reserved scat sale , at CO , 33 and 25 cunts , will bo ODCQ after 10 o'clock this morning. At the Grand opera house on Thursday and Friday evenings next Mr. McICee Kankin and an excellent company coining direct from n run of 100 nights at the Bijou theater. Now York city , will present the latest addition to the rural world called ' 'ThoCnnuck , " as Jean Baptlsto Cadenux. Mr. Itankin has given a creation heretofore unknown before in the stage world , It scorn * strange that In a Held where authors , are continually In search of something new , that the French Canadian should have been overlooked. This , how- av.QEr-ia.tha tnct , ns Mr. Kankin flrst intro duced the character of the habitat to New York midloncos' during the present season , and HO much I literal \vas found la the quaint costumes and amusug ! dialect of these people - plo ii3 to warrant the keeping of the play on tot soiuo twelve wcclu Iu that city. It would [ > o n mistake nowovor , to assume , thnt on nc- ount of thii 0110 character that the play K Canadian , ns the principal scones nro laid In northern Vermont , and take place on the arm of nn old Yankee , somewhat after the ' 03 turn Whltcomb typo. The story Is of the amo homely order as "Tho Old IlonuwtcnJ , " Mid deals with the happenings in two atnllics where the son and daughter have been educated to a position high ubovo that occupied by their families. The play abounds n bright bits of naturalism and Is presented > y tbocnrno company thnt assisted Mr. Han- kin during his metropolitan run. The advance - vance sale will open on Wednesday morning next. The Jefferson-Florence company , In which ilrs. John Draw and MaJatuo I'onlsl arc hi- jludcd , will bo nt the Ornt.d on Saturday night , February 7 , for ono night only. As soon as the company manager , Mr. Harry \ . Leo , arrives , It will bo decided whether ho play for , the evening shall bo "Tho Heir- nt-Lmv" or "Tho Klvnls. " The dramatic npew say that this will bo tlio last season of his great comedy organtratlou , the greatest n the history of the theatrical world. The piquant American burlesque , "Evan- gollno1 ' which opened at tbo Hoyd yesterday iftornoon for tin engagement ot three per- orinnnees , will close this evening , to cus- otnary largo business. The present cast scorns to give universal satisfaction nnd Is certainly up to any that has presented the rroal extravaganza hero. The first Omaha performance ot "Tho Sea Clng" will bo given nt lloyd's opera house L'hursdity evening , January 'ii , when nn on- ; agement of three nights nnd n Saturday n.itinru will bo inaugurated by the \ \ llllnm ' .

The costumes are by n well known irttst nnd the scenery by Maodcr & Schnefler. The opera hat already mot with i ilattcring reception by the critics and pub ic of New York and 1'hiludclphla. it holng lartieiilarlv well received in the founor city , vhoioat I'almer's theater it ncarlv ran all .hrotieh the su miner , and rcclved the high est praise ever accorded n nntlvo composer's work. "Tho Sea King" Is n romantic opera comiquo In throe nets. The scene of the ipera is laid in Spain , the period of action jQlnn the latter part of the thirteenth cen tury. The Sea King is the principU char- ictor. His tbrono has been usurped jy Don Bambula , nnd ho supports ilmsi'lt bv smuggling. The Sen King is impelled to both horornnd justlccnnd renders handsome all with whom he asso ciates , liainbula. has a nteco , Dolores , u -iciiuty , nnd proposes to lot Mateo , the Sea King , marry her if ho will confer n line per sonal appearance on himself , BnmbuUi being desirous of beauty so that Hosltn , a village l > elle , will wed him. liainbula Is really prac ticing duplicity , as ho moans to marry Mis iloco to somebody else. The opera is full of Intrigues , captives nnd smugglers' ' cnyos. Disaster after disaster overtuKu Bambuln , wlio flnally gives up the strucgle fora wife. Ho nt last succumbs to the Inevitable and acknowledges Mnteo as his son-in-law. Mntco pevmlts Bambula to reign on condition thnt ho never again attempts to get a wife , and. with ttio finale , sails away with his beautiful bride in the ship of the Sea ICing. Ailnlinn I'ntti and Gm > d Looks. Adcllnn Pattl Is something moro than a nightingale ; she is n thinker , an observer and n student of herself. "Good looits , " she dcclaros , "are nothing more than unimpaired liodily health. Beautv Is woman's stock In trade , while talent , of what kind soever , it doesn't ' matter , Is her capital.

A dozen or more theatrical troupes have coma to grief throuchout tlio country slnco Christ mas. Evidences of their disastrous end have reached town to swell the throng of un employed but not discouraged nctors who haunt the agencies and upper Broadway. Some of tlio failures have been gloomy , A "Sho" company which had been organized by W. K. Reed , went to pieces at Detroit. Ono of the unfortunates tells this plain story of a warm-hearted nctrou * ' generosity : "Wo were loft uttoily destitute. Hood abandon Ing us , neglecting to pay our wages or ovou our board bills.
