The Streets of New York. - .
OnMonday andTuesday nights the
above, realistic drama will . be pre
sented to the citizens of Wilmington.
The company are now bound South
ward on a tour. They have played
in the cities of Virginia and to large
houses. They were in Norfolk last
Monday and the Virginian has this
to say of their appearance there:
The "Streets of New York" was
presented last night at the Academy,
of Music in grand style. Kilday's
conception of Tom Badger is novel
anil realistic, . much better than
Frank Mayo's version. The whole
piece shapes different, and brings
the' inany characters out better.
M&g-Llbbie Kirke, as' Bob. the Boot
Black, was natural, ami her song,
"Can You Tell Me the Reason Why? '
made a decided "hit. Miss Laura
Pahuer,s as Aluda Bloodgood, the
heartless coquette, and Mrs. Fair
weather, showed her versatility as
an- excellent actress. Frank I.
Frayne, Jr., as Dan, did his part up
in histrionic style, a chip of the old
block, x Edgar Owens, as Gideon
Bloodgood, brought out the full
merit of the part. In fact it is a
good company. The fire scene in
the fifth act was natural, real fire
men and hose carriage right from
Jules S. Kussel, the manager, can
congratulate himself in having a
good piece and a first-class company
to present it. The house was crowd
ed last nightaloft and well-filled be
low, and should be so to-night, as
the piece presents a picture of New
Y ork and trials of the poor.
Qran'i Fine Company.
Millocker's opera, "The Black
Hussar," was presented last night at
the Opera House by the Jules Gran
Opera Company to a fairly large
audience. The company is a good
one. The principal characters were
well sustained and to the thorough
satisfaction of all present, and the
chorus was parti sularly fine. Miss
Jesse Hatcher, as "Minna," was sim
ply charming. Miss lay Douglas
as "Rosetta," rendered her able as
sistance, and delighted the audience
by her exquisite rendition of the
song, v"OJ He, Mama," .Miss Ray
mond, as.Miiaruarav" gave a natural
and life-like portrayal. Mr. Her
man Waldo, as "The Black Hussar,'
is a very good actor, with a sweet,
mellow and well traind voice. My-.'
Freas, as "Hackenback" and Mr.
Clayton, as "Pinkoro,"' kept the
audience in roars of laughter by
thpir witty sayings. Mr. Car as
"Miffln, an Actor," acquitted him
There was a matinee this after-
noon, at which was presented "The
Queen's Lace Handkerchief," and
to-night the company will conclude
their engagement here with 44Er
minie," This is the first time that
this beautiful little opera has been
presented in Wilmington and all
who wish to see a good entertain
ment should attend." Judging by
the looks of the box sheet at this
writing there will be. a big audience
to see it,
QUI BIRMINGHAM LETTEli
Dear Review We are now hav
ing very cool weather here. Have
had frost once or twice in the xjast
week, and expect it again. It is
very welcome, for the yellow fever
had a great many frightened in this
part of the country, but I do not
think the "Magic City" was in dan
ger, f dr we can boast of the health
iest city in the South, and on that
has as fine a seweragsyste-m as anv
South or North,
It is quite laughable to read of
suudl plaoes of about 150 or 300 in
habitants quarantining against the
world.- Such places, in my opiniou,
should have a white washed fence
put around them, forty feet high.
Why, one small place in Mississippi
quarantined against the United
States and Arkansas as if Arkansas
was not in the United States. 'What
fools these mortals be!"
