ROl DOWN BY PlHKKriTON. Hasten Travera, Large Wholesale Liquor Dealer of Buffalo, Accused of Fraud. Clever detective of the Pinkerton force, disguised aa farmer and mechanics, have had the dragnet out In Buffalo for more than a month past gathering In samples of Duffy's Pure Malt Whisky. The word was passed that "phony" goods were being sold, and they were quickly on the scent. It Is safer to say that no one In the liquor or drug business In Buffalo escaped investiga tion. The investigation had not proceeded very far before it became evident that a large amount of Duffy's Pure Malt Whisky so called was being made in Buffalo, as well as marketed there, thla la contrary to the law, aa pretty nearly everybody know. Duffy; , Pure Malt WhUky la made . In Rochester, and is sold only In original patented glass bottles, not In bulk. The Dully company went to great ex pense and palna in determining the char acter of the aatnplea purchased by the Pinkerton men, and aucceeded easily In separating the genuine from the spurious. It waa found that much of the alleged apurloua gooda waa being sold in Jugs, demijohns and many other receptacles, by the firm of Hagen St Travera, 527 Elk street The alleged Duffy' Pure Malt Whisky was bought from them In every quantity from gill to gallon. Honest farmer called In sleighs and took the gooda away, with them by the Jugful. Enterprising young men Interviewed the proprietors about buy lng Duffy's In barrels, until Hagen St Trav era must have thought that they had a gold mine. The day of reckoning came when the au preme court granted an Injunction agalnat Hagen & Travers, restraining them from selling the alleged spurious goods. The Issues have been joined, and a suit for damages will probably follow. lniuinn(.n.nt. off h .il.r. The vaudeville bill on at the Orpheum this week continues to draw well and the abundance of comedy in the program keeps the audiences In a laughing mood, espe cially the sketch, "Emma's Dilemma," which Mips Osterman and oompany are presenting. It abounds In bright lines and keen repartee. Haines and Vldocq, as is their wont, keep the laugh making going at a lively pace. A matinee will be given Saturday. Three mora performances will be given by James K. Hackett and hla company, now presenting "The Fortune of the King" at the Boyd theater, the engage ment closing on Saturday evening. Mr. Hackett will be followed by th Frank Per ley Opera company, which is presenting "The Girl and th Bandit," one of the new est of comic opera successes. The com pany la a strong organisation and haa been lavishly outfitted by Mr. Perley for the production of the piece. The long run In Chicago, which haa juat ended, la one of the best evidences of the merits of the opera and its performances. Th dates are Sunday and Monday evenlnga, with a mati nee on Sunday. The dally line at the box office of the Boyd theater Indicates a great interest In th approaching engagement of th Henry W. Savage oompany, which Is presenting "Parsifal" in English. The great success that has attended thla undertaking In other cltlea la certain to be repeated In Omaha. St. Loula, where the company la appearing thla week, .has turned out In greater throngs than ever before, and It la now es timated that the week's recetpta will reach 136.000. In Omaha the scale of prices Is somewhat below that of St Louis, th lowest priced seat there being 1, while here It la but 60 centa, and th highest being the same in both cities, $3.

Doremue ana jar. ieomaaa westerveiat The cast: Charles Stuart, afterward Charles II, king of England Mr. Hackett Clement Lane, a cavalier.. James L. Bceley Lord Wllmot Earn B.

Richard Penderel, yeoman, keeper of Boscobel... Thomas H. Hall Humphrey Penderel. a miller. .E. L. Duane Jane Lane, Clement's sinter Charlotte Walker Drusllla Conlnesby Flora Bowley Tabltha Penderel, Richard's wife Eleanor Sheldon "The Fortunes of the King" Is a draught from a perennial spring of romance. No time in history abounds with thrilling tales and adventures such as those that cluster around the Cromwelllan days of England. The literature1 of the language overflows with them, and It Is not too much to say that no one has yet drank to surfeit of the tide. It la this, probably, that led Mrs. Doremus and Mr. Westerveldt to this never-falling source for the play they have furnished for the uses of Mr. Jamea K. Hackett. One little regret Blips In to mar th aatlafactlon that might otherwise have been perfect. One could easily wiah that the dramatists had shown a trifle more of skill In putting together the material they selected. Liberties taken with historical facta are easily forgiven when the altera tion has been deftly done. Mr. Hackett givea to Charles Stuart cer tain very admirable and even lovable qual ities that are not ascribed to Charles It, even by his most energetic apologists. Thla too. Is a pardonable liberty, for Mr. Hack ett is dealing with the merry monarch at a time when the clouds hung darkest over his head, and when, Indeed, he was. but a soldier of fortune. It Is not at all improb able that then, If ever, Charles Stuart had serious thoughts. At any rate, Mr. Hackett Invests the character with a curiously atv tractive admixture of good fellowship and dignity, of seriousness and carelessness, and makes the wandering heir to the overturned throne of England quit a like able fellow. In the second and third acts, in whjch the action of the play draws to its climax, Mr. Hackett comports himself with a restraint and a gallantry that cer tainly might be an attribute to either a king or a yeoman, but which is very manly In its genuineness. Miss Charlotte Walker, who Is one of the most beautiful women seen on the stags here In many a moon, shares with Mr. Hackett the credit for the success of the play. In the scene of the second act she Is most admirable. H'er manners and her speech are those of ooy and joyous girl hood, and her earnestness Is that of pure faith. In the third and fourth acts, w'here she has little to do, she bears oft her antl cllmactio efforts very well. It would be a pleasure to see Miss Walker In a role that would afford her better opportunity for her apparent ability. The company In general Is good. Peter Lang's old colonel la a very good pleoe of work. Mr. Frank la somewhat handicapped by the ridiculous ' attitude In which the author has placed 'htm. ' It is not at all likely that even a captain under Ireton would have fled to win' a girl's heart by the methods lie" adopts, ',no'r Is it, at all likely that one whd had both hla experience and incentive would have ljpwed the captive to so easily slip through,, ils handa. But Mr- Frank makes the part; what it waa evi dently Intended to.be, and la In nowise to be held for any error, of Judgment on the part of the author. The Betting of the play la quite elaborate, the aoenery of the sec ond act causing especial comment. An audience that fairly . well filled the theater welcomed Mr. 'Hackett to the Boyd last night, and gave him a most enthusias tic reception. In a littla curtain speech he voiced hla appreciation of the welcome ex tended himself and th play, and expressed a desire to visit Omaha oftener and be come better acquainted with the people. 'The Fortunes of the King" will remain until after Saturday night, with a matinee on Saturday. "The Llgrnthouse by the Sea" at the Km. "The Lighthouse by the Sea," which will finish the week at the Krug theater, opened to a fairly well filled house last nlgbt, and wns given most enthusiastic greeting, This; piece varies the routine of the sensa tional drama by providing something In the way of a novelty . on the atage, a light house with a blind keeper. When he Is assailed by the villains who are Intereated In encompassing the wreck of a vessel and Is left bound and senseless on the floor, his granddaughter, who aids him In caring fbr the light,' being dragged away, and the light being left extinguished, it seems to be all over with the ship.. But just here la where th watchful Providence that looks after such things get In Its work.. The lighthouse haa been constructed so close to ehore that a clothesline la atretched from a cliff to the tower. On thla lln the week'a wash la flying to the breeaea when the storm breaks. The predicament of the vessel Is discovered Just In time, and the neglected little circus ' girl doesn't do a thing but walk the clothesline to the light house by the sea, which is also by the shore, and then touch off the light and save the ship and all on board, to the intense satisfaction of everybody present. Na turally, the ship having on board the neces sary persona and papers to straighten out the story, the next act enda the play. Quite a bit of villainy of varloua aorta and an equal amount of comedy precede the aerial performance, which cornea oft In the third act. A very pretentioua scenic equip ment Is provided. The piece will remain until after Saturday, with a matinee on Saturday afternoon. Parsifal Lecture. The lecture on Parsifal, which Mr. Clement Chase delivered before the Woman's club last Friday morning met with such approval and he received so many requests to repeat it by those who were unable to be present in the morning, that it will b given Thursday evening, March f, at 8 o'clock at the First Con gregational church. Admission Is free, and those Intereated In the aubject of Parsifal are Invited to be present. Mr. Chase will b assisted by Miss Corlnne Paulson at the piano, who will render th leading motive and Mr. Robert Cuacaden, violinist, who will render the Good Friday spell, assisted by Miss Paulson. The Adler Stock and Grain company of St. Loula haa been winning well deserved praise from It enormous clientele of cus tomer In the middle west for the efficient manner in which they conduct their busi ness. Their splendid wire equipment enable them to secure execution of order with th greatest promptness. Th department davoted to the interest of those giving In struction by mall ha proven an unquali fied success because of aervioe which, In Its promptness and efficiency, overcomes the usual tardy execution of ordera which haa hitherto militated the chances of suc cessful trading by mall.

A LARGE CROWD HEARS THE ADDRESSES Attorneys Smyth, Gurley, Smith and Clapp Make Clever anal Able Pre sentation of Their Contea tlons to tho Jury. Oratory of th forceful, graceful, fer vid and soul-stirring brand waa on tap In Judge Kennedy's court room Thursday aft ernoon. The case was that of a widow, Mrs. Rosa Rezrk, and her children against three South Omaha saloon keepers Basar. Goldstrom and Klein for 13,000 for the losa of her husband through being aold liquor, aa alleged, by the defendanta to auch an extent that he got Into a quarrel and waa killed. Mra. Rcxek'a attorneys were 6myth Smith and the defendants were represented by Gurley St Woodruff and Rich & Clapp. Mra. Resek and her three little children were In court. With such a setting and such masters of the forensic art and legal lore It waa little wonder that a large crowd waa attracted to Judge Kennedy's court, even with the open- ng argument In a murder trial going on In the next room. Former Attorney General Smyth, a French marshal In appearance and a ver itable master of the muslo of a golden tongue, pleaded the cause of his clients in masterful fashion. He brought out all there waa In it. and dwelt with especial strength and emphasis on the instruction of the court given before the arguments were begun that by the law of Nebraska every man who wants to run a saloon must enter into a bond, with sureties, to be re sponsible to every person who may suffer Injury aa the result of hia selling liquor to them or their ' " Gurley In Fine Fettle. Following Mr. Smyth, for the defendants. came W. F. Gurley, also a more than or dinarily brilliant pleader. Learned In the law and resourceful In the presentation of evidence, Mr. Gurley made a very strong and able plea for his elicits. He is the personification of force and movement when addressing a Jury, and the spectators who were crowded Into Judge Kennedy's court room were held fast by his logic and elo quence. Besides these two past masters Messrs. Ed. P Smith and C. E. Clapp contributed very materially to the oratorical feast, for the plaintiffs and defendants, respectively. The phases of the case which they were assigned to cover were handled with de cided cleverness. Altogether, the Jurors and the spectators witnessed such an afternoon of legal bat tling as la seldom to be enjoyed in the old court house. The corridors, as well as the court room, fairly rang with the efforts of the contestants and there was a thronging crowd present until the last word had been spoken. The Jury went out to consider their verdict at 6 o'clock, with Instructions that if they should agree on a verdict during the night they would seal It up and return It Into court this morning. In this case, as In another In tho same court room recently, the bill of rights was again vindicated In Nebraska. An intelli gent young negro was a member of the Jury, and had the same seat in the box which the other man of hia race occupied. Russia Pay North Sea Claim. LONDON, March .
