THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : STJXDAY , NOVEMBER 110 , 1898.
AMUSEMENTS.

Omaha Is to have tin opportunity to hear
the International Orand Opera company
after all , the only change In program other
than date being the transfer from the Boyrt
r to the Crelghton. Thu dates at the Boyd
for the fore part of the week are taken , but
those at the Crelghton were not. The same
operas which It was previously Intended to
present will bo given.
After the brilliant one preceding , last
week appears like a dreary waste In the
field dramatic , only one of the leading
playhouses prc cntlng anything like a repre-
tentative entertainment , though the manage *
ment is not altogether to blame. At the
lloyd the week opened with Yale's "Evil
l yo , " which , while It may have been , and
doubtless was , Interesting to many , could In
no sense lie put In the catalogue of high class
entertainments. The latter part of the week
It had been expected a treat would be offered
In the International Grand Opera company.
There bad been a good advance sale for tbo
various performances , which were looked
forward to with much more than ordinary
intercut , but on Wednesday the house man-
agetnuut received word tbat the company
WIIH stranded at Kansas City. The company
was too large and the salary list too heavy
for the umall business which had been done
by tbo company on Its western tour.
At the CrclBhton "Muldoon's Picnic. "
which has been on the retired list for
several years , was partially revived to till
In the week.
The Trocadero was morn fortunate , pro-
scntlng one of the best vaudeville bills ,
taken In Its entirety , which has yet been
Been at the house , and profited by the lack
of entertaining features elsewhere.
Judging from press comment in the Min
neapolis papers , the Woodward Stock com
pany is in a fair way to become ns popular
In the northern city as It was here. Thu
company presented as Us opening bill "Men
nnd Women , " which is one of the strongest
plays It essayed during Its long stay in this
city , and In which It appears to ns good
advantage as any. The company was greeted
with a largo audience and the press speaks
In a most flattering manner of the
(
character of the performance.
Jacob Iloscnthal , who has been the mani
ngcr of itho Los Angeles house In thu
Orphetim circuit , Is to bo the manager of
the Crelghton when that house passes Into
the control of the Orphcum people on
December 1. The house will bo known as
the Crolghton-Orpheum. Mr. Rosenthal , If
the comment of the Los Angeles press Is
any criticism , Is destined to bo popular in
this city. Ho Is frpokon of as being an ex
ceptionally capable man , with a faculty of
making and holding friends.
Announcement a.
Charles E. Blaney's big extravaganza sue-
cosn , "A Boy Wanted , " will betbo attrac
tion at the Boyd for four days , commencing
Sunday matinee. It Is conceded to he one
of the biggest financial successes of the
past season. "A Boy Wanted" Is a mixture
of farce comedy , extravaganza , burlesque
rtnd vaudeville , and was written by Mr.
Illaney for the purpose of Introducing a
host of pretty girls , clever comedians , tal
ented vocalists , expert dancers and high
*
class vaudeville artists. There are a great
many funny situations throughout the play ,
which are brought out In the brightest man
ner possible , the witty remarks and' the
Jokes being nil new. The scenery Is hand-
eomo and in keeping with the play.
Tbcro Is something about a military play
that appeals to tbo popular mind a flavor
that all the society plays written could not
Klve. That la why "Tho Girl I Left Behind
Mo" has obtained euch a tlrm hold on audi
ences. It has lived several years while sev
eral othcrti built at the same tlmo have
passed Into oblivion. The scene Is laid on
the border and the chief characters have to
do with the subjection of the Indians with
the result that many pretty pictures are pro
duced. Whlfo the main plot Is being worked
out , two llttlo love episodes run through
nnd are happily terminated. There arc
thrilling and sentimental situations that
combined result In a most acceptable atage
presentation. Crelghton , Wednesday mail-
neo and night. November 23.
Robert Downing , the well known and pop
ular tragedian , will appear at the Crelghton
theater , In this city , Thanksgiving matinee
and ulght , In his most successful charming
triple hill. Ho will bo seen In his famous
creation of the "Gladiator , " which has made
him known nil over the world. This part is
to him what Humlet was to Edwin Booth , or
Kip Van Winkle to Joseph Jefferson. In
conjunction with this bill , he wlir also bo
( teen In romance In the part of "Ingomar , "
the barbarian. It was In this character that
ho made such a great success with Mary An
derson. Mr. Downing has played this char-
ncter many hundreds of times. From this
Mr. Downing takes a great bound from the
Amphitheater of Rome , to the wild forests
of the Cvennes , be ROCS to Paris , and In the
life of that guy capital he shows bow a
true husband cures a woman of Imaginary
love , and ale > o brings forth the fact tbat
nweot memory la sometimes better to remain
no , than try to bring back the past. In this
comedy , "French Marriage , " ho shows his
verealltlty. His comedy Is said to bo very
fine , In fact , ono looking at him In his mag
nificent costume of the French gentleman ,
can hardly realize that It Is the gfedlator
that we have Just heard hurling defiance at
the populace , or the barbarian lover of the
forest.
The beautiful ecenorama of Ireland , as
recently given before a private audience lu
thlo city by Mr. D. A. Reldy. will be repro
duced with muny new views at the Crelghton
theater on Monday evening , November 28.
On its former presentation the entertain
ment was enthusiastically received and was
spoken of In the highest terms by those
who were present. These are the only first-
class collection of Irish sceneries to be found
In the country and were collected by Mr.
RelJy during several pilgrimages through
tbat romantic land.
The Trocadero offers today nnd all week
what Is confidently believed to be an cx-
rcptlonally rare and fashionable bill. Sev
eral of the people am local favorites from
the fact that lu times past they have ap
peared as stellar lights lu this city with
tbelr own organizations. Those on whom
particular local interest is centered are
flcorgo Thatcher , the Inimitable minstrel ,
who U associated with the well known
actor-author , Ed 'Marble , In presenting their
original black-faced absurdity Hugh Stanton -
ton and Florence Modrua who until re-1
cently have been identified with the metro
politan dramatic companies , are now
presenting a charming comcdetia en
titled "A Wife by Advertisement. " Their
comedy ban met with Instantaneous success
. everywhere It fans been seen. The two
I royal coons , Charles E. Johnson and Dora
' Dean , late the stars of Sara Devtre'a com
pany , nre to make their Initial appearance
here. Johnson and Dcnu are premiers of'
colored aristocracy and one of the cleverest
colored tennis upon the American stage.
Mile. Bartlo , the famous Russian danseuce ,
and the late star of David Henderson's
sumptuous productions in Chicago , is one
of the bright features of the week's offer-
Ing. A transatlantic novelty will be the
appearance of Louis M. Granat , the unique
whistler , whoso execution and wonderful
accomplishments have won for him great
distinction. "The Two Brownies , " an In
teresting song and dance team , are upon
the bill and will claim many of the honors
for tbelr neat and characteristic solo danc
ing. Bessie Taylor , a charming and vi
vacious soubrette. and Arthur Lorraine ,
character comedian , grotesque dancer nnd
contortionist , assisted by Lilly Howell , sing
ing and dancing comedian , with their edu
cated dogs , "Grip" and "Jojo , " present a
unique- comedy sketch entirely of the new
school , notably Interesting from tbo eccen
tric comedy Introduced. The Trocadero
Challenge orchestra will still prove an en-
I , tertalnlng factor In the week's features ,
I and render a splendid musical program.
The usual matinees will be given today ,
Thursday and Saturday. As Thursday Is
Thanksgiving day , the matinee will be es
pecially given to women and children.
i
The International Opera company will ap
pear In Omaha. Such was the pleasant news
which the musical people of this community
received through the columns of The Bee
yesterday morning and from the telephonic
communications to both theaters for verifica
tion It would seem that the news was most
j j acceptable. Tbo stimulus which the expost-
I tlou gave to the musical Interests of Omaha
i i Is already bearing fruit , and , while St.
Louis was unable to support this company
as it deserved , and Kansas City followed
the example of St. Louts , it le highly credit
able to Omaha that the demands of the
people induced Manager Burgees to make
a special trip to Kansas City lu order to
secure the filling of the engagement if pos
sible. Another Interesting Indication of the
Interest manifested In good music at this
| i point Is that during the last week It was im.
j possible/ obtain at muslo stores a copy of
| any of the operas to be given , exccnt by
placing an order in advance. Many people
have stated with much ehow of authority
that Omaha would be musically dead after
the exposition , because the people would all
be bankrupt. These same people seem to
forget that a great amount of money must
have been spent lu Omaha during the last
six months by people from out of town , and
therefore some persons have not been
stricken with poverty. The demand for seats
Is very brisk and indications are that the
season of grand opera will be a paying
venture. May It be so. If a local manage
ment is encouraged at this early date in
the season it will mean the securing of
splendid attractions later on.
The opening opera will bo "Faust , " and
the date > wlll bo tonight. The Crelghton
theater has been put to some severe testa
acoustically by opera companies In the past ,
and it has proved thoroughly satisfactory.
Mr. Homer Moore , whose opinion will be
valued by many people in Omaha , writes to
The Bee that he baa heard the International
Opera company lu St. Louis , and tbat any
pralso given to the company in this column
will not be undeserved. It Is a strong com
pany , has a fine chorus and the orchestra
Is thoroughly adequate.
The matinee will bo given on Tuesday
afternoon , and the bill will bo the "Caval-
loorla Rustlcana , " and "II Trovatoro. " To
day night will have "II Trovatore. " To
morrow night has been allotted to "Lucia. "
A full synopsis of all these operas was
given lu the musical column of last Sun
day's Bee.
In connection with the Woman's club
there has been considerable talk relative
to the fact that hero Is a strong organiza
tion , .with money to kindle , prestige , influ
ence , and yet that Omaha's musicians never
get a clip nee to touch that pernicious and
abominable lucre , which Is supposed to be
only for the worldly , and not for those
ethereal beings who have been unfortunate
enough to have been sent to this earth to
endure a short season of purgatory. True ,
Omaha musicians have not enriched them
selves by the receipts they have obtained
from this estimable organization , but whose
fault is It ? As usual , the musicians them
selves are to blame.
If it comes down to the point , It will
bo found that the musicians donate their
services , and then complain that they do
not get paid. " The Woman's club Is un
derstood to have good credit , no collection
agency has been employed to collect bills
from them. Therefore , to all these who
complain and rail at the club today , and
tcmoTrow play and sing for the club for
nothing , let this advlco be given In the
spirit of friendship ; "Tho laborer Is
worthy of his hire ; If you are worth a price ,
charge it. If you want to give away your
means of livelihood , keep quiet. "
Of course , this docs not apply to those
who keep a stiff price , and hive sought en
gagements , and still have not been engaged.
To this class , which surely must be In the
minority , let a word be said , seriously and
without presumption , and tbat Is : Re
member tbat the woman's musical depart
ment does not owe any one a living , and
the purchaser , by right of all commercial
usage , reserves the right to choose hla own
goods. But , on the other hand , the pur
chaser can not dictate the price. The
Woman's club has selected. It may here be
noted , a conductor for the chorus , passing
over several who have In times past as
sisted tbo club , and would doubtless do It
aealn. But this Is no reason that these
other Instructors should feel aggrieved nt
the Introduction of a new man. Rather ,
lu the true spirit of art development , let all
unite In wishing the club musical depart
ment , its leader and Its choral conductor
Godspeed.

evening lost , at the First Congregational
church , declared her creed on the subject
of encores by declining to raak a second ap
pearance , except to acknowledge the com
pliments of the audience by a graceful and
gracious bow. Many programs would be
agreeably shortened If singers especially
nero to bow once , and even twice , b for
singing again.
| And this calls to mind a story which ap
peared In one of the humorous Journals of
the country a few weeks ago. Mr. and Mrs.
Jenks are attending a concert , and the song
having been sun ; , the audience applauds
vigorously , whereupon , of couise , the singer
appears , smiling , music in hand , and
proceeds to repeat the last verse , as on
encore. The Innocent and lender heart of
the poor old lady Is touched , and with
'
tears In her volco she remarks to her
equally unsophisticated husband : "Look
John , they make her come out and flng It
again until she gets It right ! "
A new journal has started on a earner
of onslaught on some of the leading musical
journals , and pretending to have "art" for
a basis , condemns by editorial and cartoon
the business methods of contemporaries.
How well 'might It bo Mid , what terrible
things arc done , O art , In thy name !
This magazine rejoices In having amongst
Its contributors one Hahn , who signs the
articles which appear from Omaha. In one
of them ho etntos that the chorus which
did such acceptable work at the exposition ,
whose merits were attested to by Mr. Ar
thur Mees , as well as soloists of the Thomas
orchestra , and by other visiting musicians ,
whose work was praited highly by Hans
Albert over his own signature , this chorus ,
says he , pang nothing but hymns , nnd old
songs like "Annie Laurie , " because they
could not fling anything else. This , not
withstanding the fact tliat previously the
scrlbo eulogized the work of the chorua In
the "Hose Maiden. " This work Is not very
simple , nor yet is It to difficult as ia "Fair
Ellen. " by Max Bruch , while It lasts. The
"Daughter of Jalrus , " by Stalner , Is another
work which was given by the Exposition
chorous , ami which Is not by any means
Sunday school music. This furious attack
on the Exposition chorus , because of mall-
clous feelings toward the conductor , Is un
worthy and apart from any personal ex
oneration or apology or defense this op
portunity la taken to say a word of ap
preciation for the unremitting labor , earnest
Interest , and cxecl'lent attendance of those
who bad no small share in the success of
the exposition , who helped to attract the
evening crowds , and who also assisted In
putting money into the pockets of the stock
holders the much abused and very pa
tient members of the Exposition chorus.
It seems strange that a person who ad
mittedly knows not ono thing about music
( except , as the old lady , who liked "whit
pleased her" ) , shall bo the vehicle for musi
cal news to a N > w York paper about the
doings of Omaha people In the musical
world.
Mrs. Ford , who Is at the head of the
musical department of the Woman's club , Is
preparing to conduct the department on
very aggressive lines this winter. It can
be made a great power for the good of
music In the community and Mrs. Ford very
wisely realizes that In order to get the beat
rr ults some money must be spent. Artists
who nro well known throughout the country
will bo here and will give programs of
special Interest , which will be open to the
public for a very nominal charge. The
scheme as laid down Is a good one , and ,
while It is unnecessary to detail It hero , It
will prove an attractive piece of financier
ing. Conspicuous amongst the entertainers
will bo Mr. Nat Brlgham , who will be re
membered by the majority of the musical
people. Ho is at home in a ballad concert
and that Is what he doubtless will give.

WASHINGTON , Nov. 19. It was not until
late last evening that the last para
graphs of the long translation of the Span
ish note which was presented to the Ameri
can peace commissioners last Wednesday
was deciphered at the State department , nnd
most of the members of the cabinet wcr
not aware of the full contents of the docu
ment until today , when they called at th
White House. It appears that In addition
to the long argument which was Intended to
show that the word " "
"Disposition , used lu
relation to the Philippines , meant some
thing else , the Spanish note Includes a
proposition to submit the Philippine clause
of the protocol to the Interpretation of an
arbitrator.
Another cablegram followed the flrst long
message , this time directly from Judge
Day , seeking Instructions definitely on some
points to bo made in the American answer
which Is yet to bo presented. These In
structions have been sent forward and It
may be stated without eolng into details
that they are precisely in line with the
policy which the American commissioners
have been pursuing up to this point In the
negotiations. Judge Day made no mention
In his message of any Intention on the part
of the commissioners to adjourn their ses
sions today without transacting any busi
ness , but in view of the fact the last In
structions were sent so recently as to afford
insufficient time for putting them In form
it was believed to be probable that nothing
would be done at today's session nnd that
the meeting would be purely pro forma.
Other Important Matter * .
Tbcro are several matters of real Im
portance , though not ranking with the Phil
ippine questbn , to be treated by the com
missioners , but the Instructions to the
Americans are not to call up these nt pres
ent or until the main pending Issue rela
tive to the Philippines has been settled , In
order to avoid complicating the
proceedings. In the event that
the commissioners disagree totally at
their next meeting on the
Philippines , therefore , there will be no dis
cussion of many of these subsidiary ques
tions , but In the other event namely , that
an agreement shall bo reached on disposi
tion of the Philippines' ' , these matters may
be expected to consume at least one or two
additional sessions of the commission.
One of these subjects concerns the restora
tion of trade relations between the United
States and Spain. At the beginning of the
war Spain terminated all of her treaties
with the United States , and If the two coun
tries are to get along amicably oven after
the declaration of peace there must be woik-
ing arrangements in treaty form , for the
protection of trade Interests , the equalization
of tariff charges , the regulation of extradi
tion and such subjects as are usually treated
In treaties of commerce. So far the commis
sioners have given no consideration to these
matters In their exchanges , but some at
least of them must be regulated In any
treaty that issues from the commission.
Kin ! In Near.
P. Is believed that the peace negotiations
are uearlng an end , and It Is considered
not Improbable that by the end of the pres
ent month all ot the main features of a
treaty will have been formally agreed to ,
or the effort to reach an amicable settle
ment abandoned. With a view to bringing
matters to a speedy conclusion , our com
missioners , by direction cf the president ,
, early the coming week will lay before the
1 Spaniards the final and Irreversible demands
j of this country , allowing a specified time In
which our conditions may be accepted or
rejected. This ultimatum , It is understood ,
Involves all that has thus far been con
tended for. Including the surrender to the
United States ot the entire Philippine group ,
and also names the amount of cash which
this government will pay Spain in con
sideration of Its expenditures on account
| of pacific improvements In the Island ot
i Luzon. The amount of this cash payment
I Is not known , but there li a basis for this
tiellef that it is approximately J40.000.000.
