The past week , like several of Its prcdc-
cossors slnco the reasonable expectation of
cooler weather began , has furnished no crl- '
terlon of what the normal attendance at the ,
local theaters Is to be this year. Managers i
and public , after raore than ono distressing
season , took heart of grace from reports of
abundant harvests nnd approaching material
prosperity , and expected at last n remunera
tive nnd enjoyable period of theatrical en
tertainment. They should not be cast down
by the rather untoward beginning which has
been made. 'The public can find little fault
with the managers , who have certainly pro
vided attractions which rank with those of
fered during a similar period In any past
season. Neither can the managers Justly
contemn the theater-goers for their nonattendance
tendance , for the cause Is beyond the control
of either public or manager. Some people
will go to the theater In hot weather , as was
abundantly demonstrated last summer dur
ing the long Woodward engagement. But
the $1.50 folk will do as little of It as possi
ble , preferring to spend the enmo amount , or
more , In a cool spot , if such can be found.
Wherefore , It Is unquestionably the weather ,
and nothing and nobody else , that has been
chiefly responsible for nn apparently apa
thetic opening of the theatrical season In
3maha. Given cool nights , people will not
hesitate to avail themselves of the excellent
opportunities afforded them to go to the
play. The weather bureau , with a shameful
record of prophecies unfulfilled , has shown
itself utterly Incompetent to deal with a Ne
braska drouth. But signs are not wanting ,
which ordinary laymen may read , that cool
weather has come to stay ; and this being
the case , managers should not bo discouraged
until the Improved climatic conditions have
a chance to do their beneficent work.
This week some very good entertainment
s offered to theater-goers , especially at
Boyd's , H is difficult to say much that Is
low or complimentary about the nt-
ractlons announced to appear at the
Crelghton. but at least two notable
nvents will occur at the other house.
The coming of "The Heart of Maryland" has
jcen long delayed , but it Is not unlikely
that the Omaha public will flock to see It
with that charming unanimity which It Is
wont to display both In going to the theater
and In staying away. Many have seen the
day elsewhere and are aware of Its merits
and Its weaknesses ; and almost every one Is
'amlllar with Its story , nt least by hearsay ,
through the exertions of the Indcfatigiblc
ircss agent. Such familiarity might furnish
excuse for ft suspension of The Bee's un
varying rule against criticism in advance ;
jut as n comment , favorable or otherwise ,
would have tlio least possible Influence In de
termining the action of tho. public , It Is as
well to let "The Heart of Maryland" beat
unaided and unhindered.
As to Madame Alodjeska , there seems little
doubt that Omaha may look forward to n
; enulne artistic treat In her two appearances.
She has ever been , a prime favorite , here as
elsewhere , and there Is no reason to expect
that her long absence from this city and
from the stage has In any way lessened her
popularity here. She lias surrounded herself
with an excellent company for the brief tour
which she contethplatra. ' Joseph Haworth ,
John T. Malone , Wailsworth Harris , Anna
Proctor. Anna Dally nnd others nro In It.
Madame Modjeska'heioolf ' seems to be In ex
cellent health and spirits , and It Is belloved
.hat she has been entirely restored to her old-
time strength and activity. There was ta'k
at ono time of her Joining forces with Otis
Skinner , who was so long her leading sup
port , and this would seem to be an admirable
arrangement. The scheme contemplated a
sort of joint starring tour , with the time
divided between the' two luminaries as chief
attraction. Perhaps this may still be ac
complished , although nothing has been heard
of It recently.
Madame Modjcska will be seen hero in
"Magda , " which has never been presented In
Omaha , and In "Mary Stuart , " with which
and her Impersonation of the Queen of Scotts
local theater goers are familiar. It Is learned
that a movement Is on foot to effect a sub
stitution of "Macbeth" for the latter , in
the Interest of certain young Ideas which
are being trained to shoot at the Shake-
sperean target. It Is not likely that such a
change can or will be made , but In case
there are students of Schiller In sufficient
numbers. It Is suggested that a counter
Dotltlon mav be useful In securing the reten
tion of "Mary Stuart" in the Omaha reper
E. Burtan Holmes of Chicago , who has
calncd an apparently well deserved celebrity
as a lecturer on the characteristics end
beauties of foreign lands , will give a scries
of lectures next week at the First Congrc-
sational church. "The Yellowstone" will be
the subject of Mr. Holmes' first address , to
be delivered on Tuesday evening , October
20. This will bo followed on Thursday and
SaturJay nights by lectures on "Cycling
Through Corsica" and "The Cities of the
Barbary Coast" respectively. Mr. Holmes'
lectures ore Illustrated with original colored
moving pictures and are thoroughly enjoyable
to eye , ear and artistic taste.
James Whltcomb Rlley , the Hoosler poet ,
2-ho has not boon seen and heard in Omaha
for several years , will glvo ono of his unique
and Interesting readings from his own works
hero somewhat Inter In the month. Mr.
Rlioy and his poems arc so universally known
nnd admired that detailed description of
cither Is unnecessary. More definite Informa
tion as to time , place and program of this
entertainment will be given next week.
The Bee has seldom found occasion to
criticize the nrograms or bills of the plays
provided bv the local theaters. There was
a time when they habitually contained ad
vertisements of lotteries nnd of various drugs
and medicaments which were batter left undo-
srrlbcd. All this has been changed , partly i
through the modest efforts of The Bee and (
the pamphlet offered at present to i > lay goers , |
althouKh by no means a model of artistic
beauty , is handy , useful nnd generally unob
jectionable. It Is n question , however , whether
any of Its good qualities are enhanced by the
oerslstent nonearanco of the wood cut of a
bearded monstrosity which embellishes one
of the Insldo pages. The advertisement
which accompanies this horror Is Icgltima-o
enough , but It Is not believed that any one
will buv the nostrum which It holds out
any the more readily after a contemplation
of this whiskered freak. It certainly Is a
shock to all except bearded ladles to find It
always before their eyes , Immediately below
the cast of characters.

This afternoon Primrose & West's min
strels nro to begin a short engagement of
two nights and ono matinee at Boyd's. Prim
rose & West have been regular visitors to
Omaha for a great many years and on nearly
every occasion they have had some novelty
to present. This year they are to have sev
eral new features.
In the first place they have secured the
services of one of America's most popular en
tertainers , Ezra Kendall , of whom every one
knows. HI a specialty consists of a mono
logue , In which he treats In humorous style
of the general topics of the day. Another
popular comedian now with Primrose &
West's company Is Carroll Johnson , who has
been styled "Tho Adonis of Minstrelsy. "
Wo arc promised that In addition to a lot
of new jokes that iMr. Johnson is also well
supplied with the very latest of comic eongs.
Of the other members of the company there
are Trovollo , a ventriloquist , who will pres
ent a novelty 'In the Introduction of life-size
automatons , that not only appear to possess
the power of speech , but arc also able to
walk about In human fashion. Falkc and
Scmon arc a pair of musical comedians who
may bo remembered by some of our theater
goers. The Schrodo brothers , acrobats nnd
pantomlmlsts , have been seen In Omaha with
one of the Hanlon productions. A new style
of dancing , called note or mclophrase danc'
Ing , Is to be Introduced by George W.
Lewis. The Freeze brothers will bo seen In
an exhibition of tambourine spinning Raid to
be of a very novel character. William H.
West's latest production , "The Zouave
Patrol , " 'Is to be one of the features of the
performance. The vocalists are Charles
Kent Alex Cameron , Lewis Prltzkow , I TW-
renco Diamond , Joseph Garland and others.
The minstrels nro to arrive today about
noon on a special train from Denver and will
glvo their street parade , starting from the
The announcement that the Hanlon
Brothers are to come to the Crelghton theater
for four nights nnd two matinees , opening
with a matlneo today , should be received
with pleasure and anticipation by nil classes
of theater-goers , for such Is the quality of
the entertainment that nil will be Interested
In the announcement of Its appearance. Since
the iHanlons' last visit they claim to have
gotten up , under the old title , a complete
" " which will be
new production of "Superba ,
given , here In Its entirety. Fresh from the
artist's brush but a few weeks since all
the paraphernalia of the piece was sent out
on the road aJid It will therefore be seen
hero In spick and span condition. All the
tricks and Illusions are said to be new ; the
ballets have been specially composed and
will be seen for the first time In this city ,
and the costumes which clothe a score or
more of charmingly pretty girls should be
In the nature of a surprise to those even
who know the prodigality of the Hanlons
In this regard.
Chief Interest will perhaps be aroused In
a number of new mechanical tricks Intro
duced. One of the cleverest Is where sev
eral valises are transformed Into a demon ,
who chases the clown with such rapidity that
ho Jumps into the mouth of a cannon , from
which he is exploded a second after Into
space and his dlssscted body and limbs
caught on the 'bayonets of the surround ng
soldiery. Notwithstanding the fact that the
audience sees him In six or eight pieces he
turns up a mrmont or two after , sound In
boJy , wind and limb , and fresh for a new
David Bclasco's latest popular and critical
success as a dramatist will bo given its first
performance in this city at Boyd's theater
on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week ,
when our play-goers will have an oppor
tunity to Judge for themselves whether there
Is any exaggeration In the liberal praise so
universally bestowed upon Its performances
"The Heart of Maryland" Is cleanly In ex
pression , the characters are typical of the
living humanity that forms the social sur
roundings and the theme of the story never
"overreaches the modesty of nature , " nor Is
the story Itself , cither In Incident or action ,
other than possible.
In "The Heart of Maryland the author
has sought to give dramatic emphasis to that
Quality of dauntless courage and heroic self-
sacrifice with which love Inspires woman
when danger threatens the one upon whom
she has bestowed her affection.
The company Is said to be one of the
strongest In artistic reputation that has been
included in the east of any play at present
on tour in this country. Mrs. Leslie Carter ,
who represents the heroine and central fig
ure of the play , Maryland Calvcrt , It Is said
gives a boldly drawn virile realization of the
author's Ideal. She has the advantage of
a graceful , attractive presence , mobile fea
tures , an alert mimetic Intelligence , a force
ful , Independent method In her conception
of her task. Involving nothing of staginess or
conventionalism , and withal possesses the
charm of personal magnetism. Other mem
bers of the company are James E. Wilson ,
Frank Mordnunt. Theodore Roberts , Orant
Stewart , Henry Weaver , Jr. , J. H. Hazelton ,
Ho fcert. Millward. Helen Tracy , Angela Mc-
Caull and Virginia Tracy. The advance sale
of seats , from present Indications will be
largo and bring to the theater throughout
the too brief engagement a series of numer-
OUH and fashionable audiences.
The return of Madame Modjcska to the
stage after her retirement caused by serious
lllncbs two years ago Is an event of which
all those who take an Interest In the poetic
drama will be delighted to learn. It Is said
that she has completely recovered her health
and will play a limited niimbcof engage
ments between now and the holidays. One
of these will bo In Omaha , where she ap
pears on Thursday and Friday evenings , Oc
tober 21 and 22. It la announced that she
will hereafter pay ! but short seasons and
hence It Is not unlikely that this may be
the last opportunity to see this gifted and
distinguished actress. She will be seen on
the opening night here In "Magda , " a play
which * he presented few llmrs before
she last left the stage- , but whi h has never
been done In this country In English by anyone
ono else. Duse and Ilernlmrdt have both
played It nnd It Is ranked among the g-eat
Italian artist's most remarkable Impersona
tion. The drama is by Herman Sudcrman ,
and Is snid to be a powerful and most Inter
estltiR play. The stiry is that of Magdalln.i
Schubert , a 'Willful and Independent young
Klrl who refuses to marry n man chosen for
her by her stern and tiarrow-mlnJcd. but
loving old father. She leaves home and
twelve years after returns to the humble
village a great and famous opera singer.
The unrelenting parent refuse * lo see her.
but at the solicitation of the village rector a
reconciliation Is about to bo effected \yhen
the father hears of an event In Mogda's city
career , which according to his stringent
Idens , has cast an Indelible stain upon her
character and ho again closes his doors nnd
his heart to her. The real nobility and sub
limity of Magda's character , however , are at
last made clear to the old father , who dies
with forgiveness on his lips. On Fflday
evening "Mary Stuart , " a play which Mod-
loska has made peculiarly her own nnd a
"lav of which her auditors never weary , will
be given. Joseph Haworth , an actor of excel
lent ability and flno reputation , plays the
leading roles with .Modjcska on this tour and
In addition to him the company contains n
number of other comyetcnt legitimate players ,
among them being John T. Malone , Lester
Lonergaii. Wndsworth Harris , George Syl
vester. F. It , Kendrleks , Anna Proctor , Anna
IXilly , Oracc Fischer , M ? E. Northam , Mrs.

OMAHA , Oct. 15. To the Editor of The
Bee : I have noticed In your paper several
charges made against Mr. Geraldlnc. criii-
tlslng his method of letting contracts , and
other trifling charges brought forth against
this eminent man from Chicago. Don't you
i' < now ho Is the great man who so successfully
planned and executed the World's wonder
ful exposition in Chicago ?
Perhaps you nro not aware that the world
Is indebted tg the 'brilliant ' genius of thi.s
wonderfully great man from Chicago for
the landscape beauty and magnificent archi
tectural display of those great buildings.
All the beauty and grandeur of conception
originated In the mind of this wonderful
man from Chicago. This great genius has
condescended to come tJ this Insignificant
city and has offered his services Ini order to-
secure the success of the exposition. All
that is necessary is to give this great man
from Chicago full power to transact all the
business connected with the transmisslsslppi
bhow and success Is guaranteed.
There is no need of a board of managers.
-Ml that Is necessary 'Is to furnish the money
to pay the bills , Judging by the contracts al
ready granted. You can relle on his econ
omy.Vltness Ills puylng $4 per day to his
frierU for picking up chips. Suppose he does
glvo employment to his relatives , uncles and
aunts and wife's relations , they are all from
Chicago and that Is enougn to Insure their
competency for picking up chips or anything
else lying around loose.
Now 1 hope you won't Interfere or criti
cise the acts of this Chicago genlu.i. I hope
you won't be offcn.led with mo for differing
with you In my views In regard to the con
duct of this Chicago a rara avis ,
