"?( " V r t - - - ' ' - - v Veer 7EST SCRANTOm V Local Minstrel Men Are Scoring a Great Hit at the Lyceum - Other Interesting Notes. r Fitrona of "Colombia," the Amert eu dram now being presented at the Lyoetim theater for the beenrtt of the Tonne Women'! Christian association, re very enthusiastic in their praise of the West Soranton minstrel men. who are coring a rreat hit in the Emancipation scene. In the last act Their performance Is the second last number on the programme, and it seemed as if the audienc would never tire of their work 'last night, and It was necessary for them to discontinue, in order o permit the performance to conclude on time. Several encores were accorded them, and it was necessary for the boys to introduce some extra work in order to satisfy the audience. Miss Freda Kann, who assumes the role of Topsy, was unable to sing last nlcat and Ben Allen, the Inimitable comedian of the Electric City Wheel men, rendered "Teasing" In such an admirable admirable way that he was obliged to sing the second time. This did not appease the audience, and the famous "Gas light Quartette," Tom Stephens, Lu ther Thomas, Tom Thomas and Hal Battln, came out and save something about a bug on a wall, which was made up for the occasion. Master Frank Raymond, the wonder ful child buck and wing - dancer, re celved a double encore and a nice, big box filled with choice candy. His dancing is marvellous, when his age is taken into consideration. Tom Stephens, Stephens, who takes the lead In the songs of the scene, made the hit of his stage career, and his work stamps him as one of " the best amateur minstrel per formers ever seen in this city. - His dla. lect is perfect, and his natural manner of expression, together.. with his won derful make - up, singing and dancing, combine an ideal negro character im - ersonation. The members of the scene are Ed ward Eisele, Fred .Weinss, Luther Thomas, Thomas D. Thomas. Ben Allen, Allen, Tom - Stephens, Frank Raymond sr.,. Frank Raymond, jr., Nathan Ja cobs, Victor Wenzel, Emrys Joseph, Robert Kreig, Walter Jones and Chas. Berhtold. Much credit is due Miss Freda Kann for the able manner in which the scene is enacted.
