Chicaoo, April 97, 18113. What would
you like to huar about Mil weekf 1 wlh I

rical grht (trlke yout Favorably I AltUbt.
In the tint place, dear old Hoi Hmlth Hut
eel la here playing "A Poor Relation," and
turning away crowd of people nearly every
night that cannot obtain ttatidlug room.
Thla play baa been re-written, and in my
oolnlon. tootled. Do not look incredulous.
From a dramatic and artlttlo ttandpoint it
baa been really Imuroved, I tunpote, but I
cannot enjoy it a I did before. Your hunt
ble aervant I tuffloiently old fashioned to
like to tee the homely, bonett hero win the
pretty girl. The ojltlce have made tuch an
ado about Hoi Hmlth awkward fellow that
he la playing the part of the tuocetitul
lover that now Dolly and Noah keep far,
far apart, aa thoy originally made tuch den
nerate effort to do, at tho aame time falling
to happily, Let me atk if thwe I not In the
hott of I'oUHiicn rradera tonus one who
tharea my view, who rejoice to tee an lion-
et, truehearted, noble man (In other word
a man) eveu if he I awkward and homely,
obtain the girl he lovee, beautiful and
wealthy though be bef I do not think that
the mating of two true-hearted aouU should
be considered a mtMaUtanee a much a the
brilliant (I) marriages we see everywhere In
society, whan spotless beauty and virtue al
lies herself to dissipation and vlob. I be
lieve there It many a right-minded young
woman who wlahea with all her heart that
she might And the courage to marry some
such noble man. Holt what society calls a
''boar," perhaps, but he lores her with an
unselfish, whole-hearted, devoted love sho
will never find again. But she can not ih
mean herself in the eyes of her "set," and so
the marrlee some bright society light, ami
lives to regret It. I believe I was talking
about Iluttell, the comedian. Let Noah
have Dolly for his wife, I say, and then im
prove his company. Some one baa said "he
needs no support; he Is a hoxt in himself." It
certainly look as If he thought so. "Dolly
wild all the troupe are poor, except "Scal
lops'1 and the dude,
"The Old Homestead" and "Mr. Wilkin
son's Widows" still hold the boards at Me-
Vlckera and the Columbia, and are playing
their last week's engagement to phenomlnal
business. The Bostonians open a season of
opera May Oth at the west side theatre, the
Hay market. The company is nigniy as
gutted because Will DavU didn't let tlum
have the Columbia.
Central music hall haa had three enjoyable
concerts the past week, two by Remenyl, the
third by Anu Arbols' Glee and Banjo clubs.
Harry Reese is one of the glee club boys, and
bis friends enjoyed an exceedingly diminu
tive visit from him. The club sang and
played well, and the audience did its part.
The regular college pound was resorted to,
and encores were vigorously demanded and
I nave no words to express my enthusi
asm for homely little Remenyi's music. It
can not be described. It is too beautiful. It
Is wonderful U Is divine harmony. Hit
violin It a part of himself; of bit peculiar,
attractive personality. Such melody as
poured forth from that violin (a violin, by
the way, that with a few others Is Injured
for 00,000) in the rendition of the Dead
Starch from Baul, gradually growing in vol
ume till suddenly the climax of the crtsctmlo
being reached '.the trumpet accompaniment
crashed from the big pipo organ. It was
grand. In retponso to repeated encorea he
played again and again, and as he appeared
each time, a hurrah sprang from the throats
of the applauding thousands. Of Madame
Hopeklrk who, with two vocallsta, assisted
Remenyl, I would rather not speak. Possi
bly she is a great pianist, but Chicago people
cannot appreciate her rendition of the "Krl
king" after having heard Paderewtki play It.
I must tell the young women how sbe was
dressed. Her robe was of old row, mottled
plush terrible in itself, most hideous in con
struction. Dress reform style no fit at all.
Zouave jacket and sash effect over puffed
full waist. The skirt name just to ber shoe
tops In f rout and hung in an apology for a
train behind. It was simply atrocious, and
to heighten the general effect she wore ml
and pink roses on one thoulder. I had a flue
time that evening, as the dearest girl that
ever walked the streets of Chicago and my
slt gave a box party a la leap year, enter
taining two appreciative youths, putting up
for bon bous Huylera best, boquets, etc.
I attended the last game of Indoor bate
ball Friday evening, and waa highly de
lighted to have my club, the Catllns, win the
lat, Una), decisive game from Com pun v
C'a boys. It was an exciting game; score, 8
to 8. The ptnnant is ours, and to remember
the occasion I have kept the rose that fell to
my lot from the boquet that the ladles pre
sented to Captain Bhorb.
Mrs. D. E. Thompson, Jeannette Wilton.
Dr. Reeves, Dr. Lord, Rev. Roberts, Mr,
Wolfenberger Iota of Ltncolultes have Iwen
here In the last week. I see occasionally old
frlonds who live here now. Mr. and Mrs.
Hoffman, Frank Polk, "Short" Harmer, the
Frauklint, and others. We will have to
have a reunion during the World's Fal r.
One must be in style, and jutt now It is the
fashion to move, and on this accouut I am
going to quit you right now. You would
not wonder at the reason (probably you will
not complain) if you could see me aa I sit,
clad In an antiquated old gown with a towel
around my head, sitting on a dry goods box
and balancing my manuscript on my knee.
You will, I am sure, join me in the hope
that ere another fortnight passes I may be
more comfort bly situated and have some
thing to say that will be worth your while to
read aud print. Yours truly. Chicago.

V LINCOLNITE'S KAHBLK
l Hpeclnl OnuatRH Correspondence.
Nitw Yoiik, April 10, TH. The CouitiRn's
wandering scribe called his first halt at tl.n
national capital and started out to see the
sights, taking In those In the theatrical lino
llrtt. This Is not a very largo task, as the
national capital Is not a good a town for
theatrical amuwment a the capital of Ne
braska. Society Include most all other
branches of amusement. The first plnce vie
Ited wat AIImukIi' Urand opera house, thr
liett theatro In the city, and that it lint say
Ing much, rn it It a large 'barney" plaro
with the most uncomfortable wat mortal
man ever a-it In, and thoio It shows the dif
ference between eastern and western peoplo,
for certainly either of our genial managers
would not nllow tuch abominable seat to re
main In hit lioue n week.
During my stay hern Margaret Mather It
playing "The Egyptian" at Albaugh'. Miss
Mather It undobtedly a vory strong actress,
and her tupiort i excellent, the strongeft of
which Is Mr. Otis Skinner ns "The Aro Den
con," and Mr. Whiting, who plays tho role
of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" In such
n realistic manner ai to be hideous yet fas
cinating. His description of love, while dif
fering vastly from Dutch Daley's in "U &
I," is nevertheless fully as amusing, "The
Egyptian" doe not give Miss Mather audi
dent opportunity to display her ability ex
cepting perhaps In the prison scene where
she I confined awaiting oxecutlon, a the
upxid murderess of her lover. In thl
scene "The Aro Deacon," who is in love with
her, confesses the murder of her lover, but
that If she will consent to marry him he can
savo her from the execnt loners; she refuses,
declaring that death waa far more prefera
ble than life with the murderer of her only
friend, The deacon, angered by her refusal,
allows her to be led forth to le executed
when die I laved by "The Hunchback,"
who Is also In love with her and looses hi
llfo at the hinds of 'the Deacon while con
ceallng her whereabouts. But tiefore dying
he kills the deacon by throwing him off the
church balcony, and lives to see the Egyp
tian safe In the hand of her lover who has
only been wounded and recovers In due
time to have the play wound up In the usual
happy and satltfactory manner.
Following Margaret Mather at Albaugh's
came Dlgby Bell in the "Tar and Tartar,"
and it Is to be regretted that Digby Bell does
not leave the unappreciatlve east and do as
the most of sensible eople do -"go
west" and bring with him his excellent com
company. The "Tar aud Tartar" is the best
comlo opera seen by tho writer since the
balmy days of the "Little Tycoon," "Er
mlnle" aud one or two others that obtained
opu!ar favor. The muslo is especially good,
while the turning point of tho plot it the
Tar, "Huloy Hasten," In search of a situa
tion and the song, -'I Want a Situation," is
remarkably clever. Mr. Bell, who takes this
part, It very original and a great character.
The mott appreciated solo was, of courxe,
Marie Tempest's nightingale song which
has been Interpolated. This was sung by
Hilda Holllns who, besides being possessed
with a very sweet voice, Is one of the imwt
beautiful women upon the stage. The event
of the evening and , the prettiot singing I
ever heard, was what is called the transcrip
tion of national air by Adam Itxel. It
starts out with "The Star 8angled Runner,"
then another part Joins in with "Yankee
Doodle" and later another with "Marching
Through Georgia" and other war songs. It
I beautiful to listen to for you hear one part
al)ove another, and ore that one dies another
song will become louder and more fllatfnct.
It is a great novelty aud is received ilth
thunders of applause; t Is bound to catch
the public's favor and havo a great run for
it touches the popular chord, and' the old
songs composing it will always be dear to
the American people. As Is ti ue of mo't nil
comlo operas the "Tar and Tartar" possesses
little plot, but what there is deals with a
shipwrecked wllor who finds hi way to the
shore of the City of Morocco where he
searches for n situation, and Is dumbfounded
when tho people make him sultan, for it ap
pears that the original sultan got tired of
'his job' and committed suicide, decreeing
the throne to the first shipwrecked sailor
who was cast upon thoso shore. The lucky
Taratsumea the throne and encumbrances
300 wives without much hesitation, but
gets into difficulty with an officer of the
guanl aud to prevent a duel allows this of
ficer to reign with him, each having control
every other hour. Never before has the
writer seen so many pretty girls In one play.
There was euough beauty upon that stage to
make even a "woman hater" use bis opera
glasses with great regularity.
While In the "City of Hotels," as Wash
Ington has been very properly named, the
writer met Hon. J. E. Hill, wife and daugb
ters, MlssCarola and Winnlfred. Auditor
Benton, Land Commissioner Humphrey and
wife, Secretary Allen, wife and sou, Attor
ney General Hastings aud wife, and Harry
Krug. L. G. Burr aud J. H. Ames were also
there, attending the supreme court.
The next place of amusement vUited by
me wilier was in Hostou, where an evening
ws wasted, so far as he was personally con
cerned, listening to Sarah Bernhardt aud
her company deal out French in "Fmu
Frau"as though paid for by the yaid.
To any one who Is interested In French, or
to any one who is not but wants others to
think they are, Ilernhardt may be entertain
ing; but to peiaona who are thoroughly
Americanized In their tastes the madam is
not a successful entertainer. Sbe haa been
drawing on'y fair houses here and again says
that this is ber farewell tour. I sincerely
hope she will keep her word for a change.
Of the company the tame can be said, for if
one enjoyt her they will likewise enjoy the
acting of her tupiortert. Mdme. Bernhardt
Is now playing at the Tremont, a very con
venient and handsome theatre. It Is the
custom here to promenade between acta,
which is mott thoroughly eujoyed and ap
preciated by the young folk.
A my time was limited lu Boston the
Tremont was the only theatre visited, fori
tooK tlie boat ror Nw York the following
evening which was the 10th of April. That
nigh, a terrible snow storm struck us ar.d it
wat impossible to be on the deck and see
one of the moxt beautiful water trips along
the coast that U to be seen ill the east. Hut
New York was reached without a touch of
seasickness, thank heaven The hub of the
atrical events reached at last, and like all
other weiteinoiu, the first play I witnessed
wa Francis Wilson in "The Lion Tamer" at
the Broadway. If a Llncolulte in New York
baa a touch of homeeickuesa he Immediately
goes to the Broadway and imagines he is In
stalled by the aide of his beat girl in the Lau
stag, especially when he looks about and sees
such lamlllar face as Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Sheldon, L. C. Burr and daughter, Miss Mae,
und his niece, Mis Beitie, mid, as on this oo
cation, that of Juo. Day, whom many will re
member as having visited in Lincoln during
the sestiou of the legislature In 1888-0. Or
the Broadway and FiancU Wilson littU can
he said that would not I e a ivietltion, a
tbey have both been ably described to the
Lincoln I'libllo heietufoio and no changes
have token place since ill either, ex epl tiiat
Marie Janseii is no longer iu the co.upauy,
Miss (Jlasaer taking her place a well as can
be expected, for Mies Jansen alway leavea a
hard place to fill. Miss Glasser ia a very
clever little actress, with winsome manner
and a fascinating face, but she i lacking of a
good voice which greatly handicap her.
Francl Wilton starts on a tour of the prin
cipal eastern cities May 7th, and his place at
the Broadway will be filled by DeWolf Hop
lor In "Wang."
Tomorrow night "Acrosa the Potomac"
will bo presented for the first time to the
tender mercies of critical New York's theat
rical public and press, which makes or
breaks so many plays, authors and manag
er. This will be quite a theatrical event
and the fortunate ones who expect to be
resent aro waiting with n great deal of im
patience, Quite a represeseutative crowd
from tho "City of the West" will be there to
see If they agree with tho New Yorkers. So
much, so good more anon.
