The (lift remit of President Hnrrison's re
taliation liuiiMiro ngaltiBt Canada hai re
sulted in nlmiwt bloodshed. Mr. A. Y. Pear
son's "Tlio White Squadron" company won
vehemently hissed at tlio Queen's theatre in
Montreal on Monday, Plugs of toliacco,
knlvcB nnd slices er thrown on the stage
and then tlio excited mob pulled down tlio
American Hag and trailed it in tlio mud. It
was with dltlkulty Mr. Robert Milliard was
restrained fioni jumping over the footlights.
Tlio Insult was altogether uncalled for, as
there Is not u singlo lino in The Whlto Hipmd
ron offensive to cither England or Canada.
Every member of tho company nro Ameri
can citizens mid no is Mr. T'earson, who tele
graphed Keeietary of State Foster Ht Wash
ington for protection. It is a lamentable
outbreak of vicious blood In our neighbor,
wh ich shows itself too often of late to bo ig
nored. Thank heaven Americans neither
hiss like geese ami Rerponts and nro too Intel
llgont to robe a disturbance in n play house.
The French population of Montreal has given
'The "White Squadron strong support by vis
iting tho Queen's in large numbers nnd ap
plauding everything from start to finish.
It is rumored that, although Verdi is with
in a few weeks of his eightieth year, he has
recently announced his intention of starting
upon the composition of n new opera. When
"Aldn" was produced at Cairo in 1871 It was
pretty freely stated that this was to bo the
last opera, but sixteen years Inter musical
Kuiopo was stoitled by tho production of
probably the greatest work that Verdi ever
wrote, for in that year "Otollo" saw tho
light at La Hcaln. Tlio Influence of modern
modes of musical expression upon tho great
est composer of theltalian school was readily
traced in this last work of Verdi, and, altho'
tho ultra-Italians regretted this, thero is no
doubt that "Otello" is by far the greatest
work of its composer.
The new law as to children on tho stnge
went into effect September 1 . On tho moi u
ing of that day Manager Stevens of the
"Wiiiir" company applied to Mnyor Grant
of New Yoik for permission for I.lllla Kline,
ngrd four; Florence Kline, aged eleven: Ella
Mansfield aged six, nnd Beatrice Lawrence
ngod nine, to nppenr in the play. Notice was
gi veil to Mr. Oeiry, of the S. P. 0. C, nnd
ho protested the law did not allow singing
nnd dancing. Coi poratlon Couusol Clarke
held it did, and tho mayor thereuon gave
the permission, and tlio children appeared in
"Wntig" on Monday. Mr. Oerry had agents
in the house who will swear out warrant
ng ninst Mr. Stevens, nnd tho matter will
then be aigued in tho courts on habeas cor
pus. Mr. Oeiry, as was expected, will not
give up his power without a llerce and long
struggle. Ho is a I ich man, with n jiowerful
political pull (Tammany Hall), and is backed
by tho scclal up( er ci ust of Gotham, who do
not understand that tho little ones are well
treated and much buut-fltted by the money
th ey rain so tarily ty their theatrical work.

A TKXAH HTKKU AT FUNK!!'!.
Few authors can
point to n Hit of
successes so long
and unbroken as
that of Charles II.
Iloyt. It is afo to
say that none of his
works ever recioved
more emphatic or

piesented here last
reason at Funku's.

prist) uvuu to tlitiiu
familiar with Mr. Hoyt's talents. It was in
one sense n deporttue foim his previous
methods', as the musical and specialty tlo
ini'iits. which have been a prominent feature
of his former faices, are entliely eliminated.
"A Texas Steer" proved to lo a remarkably
blight mid dewr comtdy, I oi tiering very
closely ht tiliHs t ii bicmler faice. Its satir

"Jnugli and Live" Is suggest ho advice,
since thoso who laugh moot usually live
longest. As an encouragement to live "Tho
Hustler" is to njppenr Wednesday evening nt
tho Iatilng. Tills roaring farce comedy of
fers Its patrons an additional leao on life by
causing them to laugh from the rising of the
curtain to tho going down thereof. That Is
what the play is for. For modern farce com
edy Is n succession of specialties hung ukiii ii
thread of plot nnd play, and upon thu excel
lence of the nrtlsts depends tlio enjoyment of
thu public mid Incidentally tho receipts of the
box office. John Kernel I, th loading come
dian anil chief hustler, is one of tho best
known nutl clevorest In his lino that ever
sprang from the variety stngu. Thu breadth

on tho stage. Ho play-.tl tho touuli hoy with
Nelllo Mclloiiry last season In whl :h he uiatle

is Miss Sadie Kirby, a pretty soubrctte of
that rare combination of beauty, singing and
