A DURABLE FRIENDSHIP
Al JdioIOouditioiiB Exist For a Better Feeling and tbe Stronger That Feeling
ing is the Better-
London, Nov. 2.��� The Bight Hon.
James Bryce former under scoretnry
of state for foreign affairs, subsequently president of the board of trade,
and now member of pnrlinmout in the
liberal interest for Aberdeen, speaking there tbis afternoon, endorsed
Lord Salisbury's stand iu the Fashoda
controversy declaring that "The military control of all the naviguble waters
in the Bahr El Ghazal basin as well
as on the Nilo most lie secured to
Egypt."
Beforriug to the increasing cordiality betweeu the United States aud
Great Britain, Mr. Bryce said:
"When last in the United States I was
much struck with tho change in public sentiment. The spontaneous outburst of feeling in Great Britain when
the European powers wished to intervene against the United States dur
ing the recent war with Spain made
the Americans understand how close
we felt the tio between them and ourselves. They have shown that they
appreciate aud reciprocate our sentiment.
"I would uever advocate a formal
alliance. At all eveuts the obstacles
at present are serious. But all the
conditions exist for �� solid and durable friendship between America and
Great Britain. They havo M adverse
interests auy where ia tho world and
they have "common aims in sundry
regions.
"Everywhere each cau render great
service to the other and they cau withstand auy foreign country. Nature
and history meaut thom to be friendly
and the closer and deeper that friend
ship is the better it will bo for tho
greatness and tho welfare of both.'

TWO MINERS KILLED.
Foul Air Cau' es Two Miners at the Sunset
No 2 Mine at Bossland to Lose
Their Lives,
On Tuesday evening about 7 o'clock
a terrible acoideut occurred at the
Sunset No. 2 mine near Rossland, by
which two miners, named William
Cain and Patrick Nolan lost their
lives. The two miners, with a mucker
named Fred Holt, were employed on
the night shift by Jos. Trainer, who
Iiiih the cotract for continuing a crosscut from tho 350 ' foot levol in tho
shaft. The last shift iu the crosscut
came out about 4 o'clock in tho morning after having fired a number of
shots. As some repairs were required
to the machinery, work was suspended
during the day and as no air was
available it was impossible to clean
the   gus out of tho shaft.
At 6:80, Nolan, Cain and Holt
showed up to go to work but were
warned by George Drewry, the engineer in chargo, that it was dangerous
to go dowu. Cain replied that there
was no danger, as he would recognize
auy gas iu a moment uud would bave
uo trouble iu getting out. The Jthrce
meu got in the bucket and were lowered to the 850 foot level by means of
tho brake on the hoist.
Iu a few moments Drewry heard
Holt shouting for help aud descended
the shaft to render assistance if possible. At the 200 foot level he found
Holt hanging on to tho water column
and air pipe where he had fallen.
About 15 minutes later steam was got
up und the bucket was lowered and
Holt was brought to the top in an unconscious condition. It took Dr.
Kenning au hour to revive him. Foreman Trainer, George aud A. J. Drewry again desceuded to the 850 foot
level where they found the bodies of
Cain aud Nolan. Nolan's body was
lodged behind the water pipe and Cain
was lying across the pump. Both
were dead, their nocks having been
broken by the fall. Upon reaching the
top Drewry fell over unconsoiouH
from the effects of the foul gns, he had
braved in his efforts to save the men,
and it was some time before he recovered.

CAN'T HANDLE   THE GRAIN.
Topeka, Kansas, Nov. 2.��� Coni-
pliants are being received by the board
of railway commissioners regarding a
scarcity of grain cars at many Kansas
points. It is impossible, the complaints say, to get sufficient curs to
handle the grain. A complaint filed
from five grain firms at Claflin, Kansas, says, 80,000 bushels of wheat is
waiting to be moved at that point, 7,
000 bushels of which is lying on the
ground. Farmers generally have beeu
holding their grain for higher prices
and this unexpected movoment has
caused a shortage of cars.

STIMGE STORY
IN HIGH LIFE
The Disputed Title of the
Duke of Portland.
MRS. DRUCE'S CHARGES
She Says the Present Duke of Portland is
NottheBighM Heir and Dispossesses Her Son-
London, Nov. 2.���Mrs. Anna Maria
Druce, daughter-in-law of the late
Thomas C. Druce, who sho asserts,
was in faot and in law fifth Dnke
of Portland, obtained a final order in
the high court of appeal today directing the chancelor and faculty of the
dioceso of London to issue her a permit to open and inspect the coffin, now
in the vaults of Highgate cemetery,
alleged to contain the remains of her
father-in-law. or of a man buried ns
Thoman Charlos Drn:e. Mrs. Druce
claims that hor father-in-law's alleged
death and burial uuder the name of
Druco were deceptions aud that ho
lived and finally died, after having
beeu under the care of Dr. Forbes Win-
slow, m a lunatic asyjlum. As to Dr.
Hamer, hor son, who, she asserts, is
the rightful duke of Portlaud, and for
whom the present proceedings are
being taken, has beeu uutil recently a
domestic servant. He was last* heard
of in Australia.
According to Burke's peerage, William John Cavendish Scott Bentinick,
fifth Duko of Portlaud, died unmarried, December 6, 1879, and the dukedom passed to his cousin, William
John Arthur Charlos James, tho de
facto duke, who waB born December,
20, 1857, and married Miss Winfred
Dallas Yorkc. Both he and his wife
are very popular in London society and
entertain lavishly at their numerous
estates. A recently published estimate
of the duke's rental places it at
somethinsg like ��400.000 a year.
Mrs. Druce iu her affidavits declares
that Thomas C. Druce did not die iu
December, 1084, as would appear from
the official record, and that the coffin
iu Highgate cemetery which she sues
to examine does not contain nud has
never contained human remains. Her
contention is that Druce, whether
from eccentricity or from fear, led a
double life, taking various courses for
his protection. Sho says that the marriage between her lato husband's
father and mother on October 80,
1851, at New Windsor, Berkshire, in
which the names were, recorded as
Thomas Charles Druce and Annie
Mary, was in reality between the
Marquis of Litchfield, afterwards the
llf th Duke of Portlaud, and tho illegitimate daughter of the fifth Earl of
Berkeley.
TO  MOLLIFY   THE   CATHOLICS.
Berlin, Nov. 2.���Emperor William's
acquisition of a plot of land from the
Sultan and his banding it to the
Catholics is regarded as the final touch
in the long and carefully prepared
scheme to mollify the centerisis, tlie
Catholic party in the Reichstag, the
chief feature of which was tho vengeance taken for the murder of the
Catholic missiouaires in China.
Emporor William was the first
Christian to visit, tho tomb of David
sincd tho year 1127, the tomb being
ouo of tho most sacred Mahomniedan
shrines.

Kingston, Jamaica, Nov. 2.���General Hallows, the acting govornor of
Jamaica, started on a tour of the eastern parishes on Monday for the purpose  of  personally investigating the
oanSOS of disaffection in tho recently

A Chicago  Man Disappears in the Klondike- His   Wife   Suspects
Foul Play.
Chicago, Nov. 1.���The Chronicle
publishes the following : The family
of Louis Scala of this city, who lefl
Chicago on a quest for gold iu Alaska
last May, have heard that ho was murdered. He wns well provided with
funds, purchased mining machinery
nnd a steamer in Seattle and cnlistod
11 men in tho enterprise. Mrs. Scala
says she has strong reason to believe
some ono or more of tho party killed
him. took his money and equipment
and started for tho Yukon river gold
district, and that retribution overtook
the party on tho trip north and nine
of the 11 men were drowned during a
storm. Mrs. Scala declares that the
peculiar manner in which the news of
his death was sent home, and the conflicting stories as to Iho manner in
which ho met death, coupled with
many other suspicious circumstances,
make her certain tliat her husband
mot by foul play iu the far north. Mr.
Scala, who for years has been a building contractor in Chicago, at first intended to take a trip around the world
for his health but changed his plans
and doeidod to go to the Klondike to
develop a claim wliich he had purchased earlier in the year. Four days
after leaving homo lie wrote to his
wife that he had nearly $4000 in cash
with him and would buy an outfit in
Seattlo and fit out an expedition to go
up tho Yukon river to his claim. On
his arrival in Seattle Mr. Scala bought
the steamer Alpha and purchased
steam machinery for the purpose of
facilitating tho work of digging gold.
Ho formed a party of 12 men for the
invasion of tho gold district. The last
letter Mrs. Scala reoeived from her
husband wus written at St. Michael,
August!!. In it lie said ho intended
to loavo for tho Yukon valley in a few
lays and that lie was well and strong.
Two days later! an iiniionymnus lelli r
was mailed frnm the same place lo
Mrs. Seula which imparted the Information tliat her husband was sick,
riiree days after the receipt of ibis letter Mrs. Scala received in llie mail a
slip of paper from St. Mieliael, which
simply rend,|"Your husband is dead."
As in  tbe former letter no signature
Wagaltaclu'd. Mrs. Sculnjwoiild nol believe her husband was dead. She
wrote to those of the party whose
Dames she knew, but did not receive a
reply. Still honing against hope she
patiently waited for further particulars, firmly believing that* the members of her husband's party would
acquaint her with the sud news iuul
the circumstances attendant upon his
dealh if lie* had died. Week after week
passed without any word and Mrs.
Scala made up her mind that her husband was cither alive or had mot with
foul play. Saturday she received another peculiar letter from the Alaskan
region. It purported to lie from one of
tho party but ho did not, sign his
name or give any address. The letter
continued tho news of Mr. Scala's
death but gave an entirely different
explanation of the cause from the pre-
vioi s note. The writer said the party
loft St. Michael in tho Alpha and were
caught in a violent storm in the Yukon river. Two dnys later the steamer
sprang a leak and the party hail to
take to small boats. Within au hour
aftc the steamer had been abandoned,
ho said, the small boats capsized nnd
all but two of tho parly, including
Scala, were drowned. Tho two survivors, the letter continued,were finally rescued aud mado tlieir way to
Rampart City, Alaska. The letter was
postmarked from that city, September 25, aud was recoived by Mrs. Scala
on Saturday.
"I am certain," said Mrs. Scala,
j "thut some unscrupulous members
1 of the party murdered my husband for
; his money, his claim and tho mining
(outfit he had purchased."
Manila, Nov. 2.���Aguinaldo. the insurgent chief, has issued a proclamation pointing out that, although the
stringent ordors previously issued by
him havo beon generally obeyed, a few
of the Filipouis havo refused obed-
iineo and offended iu various ways,
and he now warns all such that they
ure liablo to bc declared outlaws, and
to incur tho extreme penalty. Tho
references is apparently to the anti-
American Filipinos. In another proclamation, issued simultaneously,

except Spaniards, to travel iu Philippine territory, bnt all such aro forbid -

MUCH SICKNESS  AT  MANILA.
Sun Fruncisco Cal. Nov. 2.���The Associated Press has leecivod thc following correspondence,dated Manila, October 8: Tho health of the troops hore
at present is far from being good. At
Cavito, the conditions are very bad.
There have been 40 deaths sinco September 1. Mostly from typhoid fever.
One. third ot Ihe officers ot tho Montana volunteer regiment aro ou the
sick list including tho colonel aud
lieutenant colonel, who aro unfit for
duly, -n une i.nttery over 75 percent
of tlie men stationed there have beon
within a month ou the sick list, the
ollicers and privates being affected
alike. The hospital conditions thoro
are inadequate. The supply of medicines wus exhausted at ono timo for
days. There was nothing medicinal
to administer to the patients. The
place is unhealthy at tho best. The
men are quartered on the ground
floors where it is damp and in this
country especially conducive to illness. Many of the meu worked themselves ill during Hie process of cleaning Cavito, but* now that tlie sanitary
conililioiis are being looked after an
improved health record will doubtless
follow.
In Manila the conditions nro hotter.
The men aro fairly well qnarterod
nml nre being given better accomodations us fast as possiblo and it will not
be lung before nil reason for complaint will have passed. Much of
the sickness of the past can bo traced
to tho overcrowding of thc men whilo
proper quarters wero being prepared.
Malaria is llm most common of the
diseases among tho troops.. A malarial condition is the natural result
of tlio climate and the santiary conditions which prevail. Typhoid fovor
has also developed lo a serious degree.
The average number of sick in the hospitals in addition to the number of
uicii relieved from duty by lhe order
nf lliu   pliysicinns   is   800.    Tho  now
cases  reported  to  the hospitals daily
average aboul "III. There havo been
IS oases of smallpox among Iho soldiers so far, six of wliich havo proved
fatal.
A RUPTURE   LOUKED FOR.
Peaoe     Negotiations    May   Be   Suspended.
London, Nov. 3.���The Paris correspondent of tho Morning Post says:
''It is expooted that a rupture of tho
peace negotiations betweeu tho United
Slates and Spain will be officially announced on Friday. Tho feeling hero
is that the attitude of the Spaniard*
is irrational, in view of the financial
proposals of the United States, and
ilial tbey may ultimately regret having tailed to agree quickly with the
adversary."
AN ENGLISH PROTECTORATE.
London, Nov. 3.���Tho Vienna correspondent of tho Daily Telegraph
says: "The Austrian cabinet considers an English protectorate of tho
Philippines tho only proper solution
of the question.''

sittings of the assize court at Vancouver aud New Westminster. This is a
very unusual oourse for the member
of^a ministry to adopt. Tho Province
intimates that it has its basis in thc
desire of tho government to economize
at all points, and that* Mr. Martin
will thus savo the fees which would
have to be paid to other counsel assigned to the duty.
There aro few who will regard this
as a good reason. Hon. Mr. Martin
in his position as attorney general, is
at tho head of tho department* of justice, ranking higher than any judge
iu tho order of precedence and exercising supervision over tho judges uuder
certain conditions. It* is, therefore,
not dignified for him to appear at the
bar iu ordinary court nnd filling
sitiou which should be filled
member ef the bar, to whom by
tho duty belongs.
A mau does not gain anything by
making himself cheap, neither does a
government and it will certainly bc
infra dig for the attorney general to
carry out his intention us intimated iu
tlio Province. There muy lie some who
will sny "dignity bo Mowed" or something more forcible, but they do not
count. There aro certain courses fo
which an attorney general is supposed
to adliero and appearances in court as
crown prosecutor arc not expected from
him. There arc plenty nf lawyers and
able ones at (he coast and in the interior wbo aro fully capable of representing tho crown with credit and ability
and out of the number Hon, Mr. Martin could easily choose one to relievt
him of tho service that* he lias undertaken to render nnd that lie will render ut the expense of tbo regard in
which tho bcuch and bar now noli
hiin.
If Hon. Mr. Martin think* this dutv
incumbent upon him on the grouiuh
of public economy, then to render il
porfeot ho should go on circuit with the
judgoB and take the assize business
throughout the province, like an ordinary barrister. Uut of course he will
not do thiB, and it would not be expected of him.
PERSONAL   MENTION
GROUNDLESS PEARS.
RUSSIA'S PLANS.
Mr.   Stead   is  at   St.     Petersburg
studying   Russia  anil  tlie Russians at
home.    Mr.    Stead   has   long   been   a
friend of Russia   and   when   he   conducted tho Pall Mull (iazelte   llie pro-
Russian tone of lhal  paper created the
suspicion   that,   it  was  subsidized by
tho Russinn government.    Mr. Stead's
opinion on uny subject is not of  much
moment, but when he   points out tlint
Russia in fully   utilizing   llie   present
to be able to cope wiih  the immense
possibilities of the   future,   he  draws
attention to an interesting   fuel which
has impressed itself on observant persona for   years   past,    There is   nothing new about it.    Russian diplomacy
bas shaped  itself on the Instructions
contained in   the   will   of  Peter   the'
Great,   That barbarian monarch  saw
"the possibilities uf  the   futuro"   for
Russia;   that  in order   to  become   a
great nation it would bo  necessary  to
have   outlets   south    and    east.    He
looked with longing eyes   towards the
Persian gulf   as  giving the  southern
outlet he coveted and also towards the
Dardanelles,   and     in     endeavors  to
carry out   his   injunctions   Muscovite
statecraft aud intrigue  have pntiently
and persistently   worked   in  these directions.    Tho   lion in the path, howover, has been the British lion, and at
all times he  has   been   a  formidable
boast.    British    money   and   British
arms  have sustained tho Ottoman empire, aud British   diplomacy hns   pro-
served the   Porsiau   frontier from en-
The pessimist iB ever with us and iB
always sure of an audience. Prof.
Charles Norton of Harvard university
is a learned man, but while he may
pOBsess much knowledge he lacks the
wisdom so commonly found wautiug in
the learned. In a recent lecture at
Harvard he took a despondent view
of the future of tho United Stntes
growing out of tho changed conditions aud the expansion of jurisdiction
consequent upou the defeat of Spain
in the rocont war. He evidently believes that foreign conquest is something in which a republic should not
engage. So far as this applies to republics such as France it is a perfectly
teuablo view to take, innsmnch as
foreign conquest on the part of France
has beeu a burden upon national resources, has afforded no adequate return and has conform! no benefits on
the countries or peoples conquered.
Tonquin aud Madagascar have not
benefited by French occupation and in
the caso of Algiers tho present stato of
that pooplo, so far as elevating influences and moral advancement nre concerned, is worse than their first. Where
Britain hns couquored she has given
now lifo to the poople and it will be
the same with tho United Statoa. Under American rulo Cuba, Porto Rico
and tho Philippines will be vastly
different countries to what they have
been, for tho genius of tho Anglo-Saxon, who nlono understands tho science
of govornmont, will bo there. The
Latin races cannot govern. Failure
was marked their efforts throughout
the world, but taking their cue from
tho British, who have the happy flic -
nlty of ruling all races easily,even pre-
vailing upon them to fight Britain's
battles, the Amoricans will be able to
hold and to govern the acquired territory without difficulty. Prof. Norton soes, as everyone else sees, lhat
Amorica lias put off tho old order of
things and will havo to adapt her constitution to the now, hut there med
bo no danger to tho republic in that,
nor will widosproad corruption bo a
natural consequences of government
from Washington of the now territory.
Tho  native   Amerioan,   sprung  from
lie old slock, is as upright a man as
iny, and the corruption in the United
���tiites is largely   traceable   to Hie nut-
��� ralized foreign elements, which,
under the mistaken manhood s.iffriu-io
laws of the   statos, have  obtained the
iscoiidency in politics. Though they
,ire with tho Amerioan people they
uo not of them, and thoy have never
had oontrol of the fodoral govornmont, tho hoada of which have
invariaby been of Anglo-Saxon stock,
doscoudeuts of Scotch, English or
north of Ireland ancestors. Those
men will continue to govern tho
ITnitod States aud though them will
come into tho service of tho stato
men in overy w ay trustworthy.
Thero is no roason why the United
States should not havo a civil service
equal to that of Great Britain in overy
way.

INTENSE   EXCITEMENT
The Beport of a Miner Just Down  From
That Oountry-The New Oroek
Promises Big Returns.
Seattle, Nov. a.���Thero has
been another rush for mining olaims
iu',the Atliu district, mid according
to the story ot J. W. Von Winkle,
who is at the hotel Northern, there
nre some 800 persons now struggling
in the excitement of the new district.
Mr. Vim Winkle, who Iiuh   beeu  nil
. over the inining   districts   of  Alaska,
came down on the Cottngo   City  from
Skagway.
"A new creek hus been discovered
and there are 70 claims staked above
discovery already," said lie. "This is
Bonanza creek a tributary to Wright
Creek, which i.s itself a tributary to
Pine. I left Atlin City on the 10th
and at thnt timo this number of claims
had already beon staked nud  recorded.
"But they wore then only iu the
midst of tbe rush, so I presume many
more hnvo taken claims   this time.
"There wero no rich finds on Bonanza creek,but it was enough to excite
the miners, Two prospectors���I hnve
forgotten their namos���took out two
nuggets amounting to i-l in ouo pan.
Thoy had worked no farther when
I left, but came in to Atlin to record
their claims. Thnt wus about two
weeks ago and just as soon us the news
spread every man who had an outfit
started for tbe newly discovered
oreek. As it is ouly a few miles from
Pino oreek it was reached without
much difficulty. I suppose Hint by this
time twico as many claims have
beeu taken. I can't say how they are
turning out, for I left beforo any work
had been dono. But I hnvo no doubt
that they will prove good paying pro-
perties. I have one of Hie olaims and

"Tbis new oreek is I believe about
east from Atlin City. Pine creek
runs from Surprise lake to Atlin lake aud Wright creek is a tributary ou tho south side. The namo
Bonanza wiib given by the discoverers
when thoy oame to record their
claims. Prior to that time it did not
have a name, so probably ninny of the
old-timers, or those who huve come
out since the discovery will not know
where it is. Of course, whether or
not this will bo a very rich district
caunot be told ut this timo. It all
depends npou tho development this
winter.
"But I believe that the Atlin conn-
try is going to rival the Klondike.
There aro already five or six hundred
men in the neighborhood of tho Pine
creek and others are coming in rapidly. Though there has uot beeu found
as much gold or such wouderful
strikes us at Dawson there is gold all
over the oonutry, us is nttesled by the
success of prospectors.
"Thoso already in believe so thoroughly in tho success of the country
that thore hns been a real estate boom
ut Discovery City ou Pine creek.
There has been somo question as to
the title to the townsite and its owner
has not yet got a clear title. But thc
rush for lots became so great that he
had to soil somo of them. An arrangement has sprung up by which a purchaser places fir logs like the foundation for a cabin iu the confer of
his lot and he receives a puper giving
him the first right to purchase wheu
the title shall bo cleared. It* is not
known yet nt what prices the lots will
be sold." Thero has been mado into
the Atlin district a new trail which,
it is declared will ho much easier to
travel than that from Skugwny.
Attorney J. V. Moloney, of Juneau,
who came down on tho Cottage City,
nnd is at tho Butler, described this
new routo yesterday.
"It is about 100 miles long," said
he, "running from Junonn straight
iuto Pine creek.    The  trail   has   been
cleared by the people of Juueau who,
of course, hope to divert most of the
travel through tho oity. It leads 40
miles up the Taku river on steamboats
and then CO miles over u very . level
country to the Atlin distriot. The
boats will uot bo put* on till next
spring, because the river will soon be
frozen."

THE BITTNER THEATRE CO.
A Western Mining Drama   Put  on at
the Skating  Ring.
Tho central figure of this play which
abounds in stirring ns well as ludicrous incidents, iB Jack Dallas, sheriff
and mining man. Jack is in love
with Nellie Lattimer, and mistakes
her affection for Dave Armstrong for
love. Nellie is really the latter's sister, but has been entrapped into a false
marriage with, and thon deserted by
Allen Westford. Stugeruct, un nmus-
ing villain, is Allen's accomplice until
his nock seems in danger.
When tho play opens Dnvo has succeeded Allen, us manager of the Home-
Stoke mino in thu Deudwood comity,
aud the hitter has n plot ou foot to steal
the bullion, Stugeract boiug somehow
allowed to guard it. Ruport Whitte-
iiiorii, owner of tho mine, entcbes him
in the act uud is stnbbed. Dave comes
in. The two closo, and when the
sheriff appears Dave is put iu jail for
murder and robbery. He escapes from
prison, however, and is supposed to
havo died on the mountains.
Tho parties next meet in New York
on thu eve of Allen's marriage to
Reina, daughtor ot thn murdered mino
owner. Jack turns up as a mining
magnate hot on the murderer's trail,
Nellio appears to stop tho marriage aud
tho two sweethoarts Kitty (Jack's sister) and Lieut. Fred Ames, of the fort
nonr Deodwood, also appear. To end
all these complications Allen manages
to get Jack and Nellio at his house together, and intends to put nn en d to
them both, wheu Dave, who is now a
fireman and has been warned by Stugeract, appears and the plot is frustrated.
In the lust act Dave and Jack meet
agaiu iu Deadwood, aud the latter,
frenzied by Dave's supposed hypocrisy
in commending Nellio to his care,
strangles Dave. The others come iu
and Nellie cast her self on Davo crying out "My brother. " Juck is horrified by his mistake, but fortunately
Dave comes to. and explanations ensue. Stagoraet comes in with the news
that he has killed Allen in self defence, nnd tho curtain falls ou a united
party.
W. W. Bittner as Jack Dallas,
the hero of the play, is seeu at bis
host, supporting the trying role with
great skill.   E. B. Kelly hoth as Stog-

eroct, aud as the pseudo parson Jawn,
was extremely clever, keeping the audience in screams of laughter. This
is undoubtedly the best piece of noting Mr. Kelly has done iu Nelson. J.
Waldrou wns good aud convincing as
ever as Dave Armstrong, though his
opportunities werel more limited, and
Lew Rose the dandy, not over clever,
but plucky lieutenant, contributed
much to tho amusement of the evening. W. Fredericks was again the villain of tho piece, and as Allen West-
ford did a most masterly piece of
work. Rupert Whiteiuore, played by
N. Mitchell came to au untimely end
early in the piece, but was good while
he lasted.
One of fhe features of the night,
though not bearing on the plot of the
play, was Toodlos the precocious street
urab. Toodles was played by "Little
Mazeppa", tne eight yoar old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, n charmingly pretty little girl. Sho played with
great spirit and cleverness, uud was
enthusiastically applauded. She should
make an exceptionally flue uctress.
Miss Mattie Choate was again seeu
to advantage as the much tried Nellie,
and Mrs. Bittner was a charming
Kitty, and an equally charming if aggravating messenger boy. Miss Milly
Stoveus made the most of her opportunities as Reina, ns did Miss' Herr-
nian in tho maiden aunt who seemed
to take pity on Stageract at the last
moment.
Prominent among the specialities
were the Waragruph pictures including
representations of three fire departments at full gallop, and of Corbett
knocking out an opponent. Chris
Mnran gained au oncore for a clever
song ami dance, as did N. Mitchell
who was iu fino voice for his illustrated song. L. McClellau both alone,
and in a duet with Chris Moran, was
deservedly recalled for some very up-
to-dnte sung and dance work.
The play tonight will be tho Diamond Mystery, an entirely humorous
pioce. Some novel specialities nre also promised.

Knoxville, Tenn., Ko.'. 2.-The
camp of tho (Ith Virginia colored regiment was this morning a scene of a
mutiny among the men of the command. The men in several companies
refused to ohey commands or orders issued hy the nine white ollicers who
wero recently asigned to tho regiment
by Governor Tiler, of Virginia. Tho
regiment was called for drill at the usual hour and tlio white ollicers iisumed
command. To their surprise and
indignation tho negroes refused to
execute the drills nnd when pressed
for an explanation, it wns announced
that tlio presence of (he white ollicers
���was tho cause. The ollicers were inclined to the opinion that it was momentary complaint and accordingly
sent their companies out under colored lieutenants.
At polico formation the snmo open
disregard for orders from Iho white
ollicers was uppnretnt nnd it wns then
determined to report tlie mutter to
the higher authorities. Colonels
Knert and Croxton and also Major
Johnson, a colored ollicer of the regiment, addressed the men. They explained that such notion was in direct violation of military laws and
punishable with death and that a
continuance of the same would bring
tho regiment into most unfortunate
disfavor. Thoy nssurcd the men lhat
any complaint that thev felt they
rightfully had should he forwarded to
tho governor of Virginia and wero
assured that such a complaint, sent
through proper channels would receive
attention from all lhe ollicers concerned. Colonel Croxton staled very
emphatically that this revolt would
mean rigid enforcement of the discipline covering such cases and said he
demanded obedience and had the
powor to enforce his demand,
Tho Jllst Michigan regiment which
hail appeared upon the scene ill
double time and which was armed
for hattie, was ordered back to its
camp and the negroes agreed tn send
their complaints in through military
channels, null, in the meantime, obey
