J- . - - Abress., . . - ?Th Lamb' Gambol" waa a fin top-notch-er forth final of th season, as th audiences at th Auditorium yesterday afternoon and 1 evening can testify.

Th entertainment Is considered elsewhere 1a this paper. Edouard Remenyl, th popular Hungarian violinist who expired on the stsge of the Orpheum, San Francisco, a fortnight age. will be burled today in New York. He waa before-th publle for forty- years, beginning his career as a mere boy. In 187S he retired, but restless activity soon Induced him to emerge, and sine - that Urn he has circumnavigated the glob several times and visited many lands, where the violin waa a novelty. While he waa on of th moat popular violinists . of th day and on of th moat widely known, he never attained rank aa a virtuoeo. It is said hia salary during hia musical season ranged from $250 to $350 per week, but he left nothing la th way of an estate,, his two 8tradlvarius violin probably being th most Important assets. An Invalid wife and a rather extravagant family absorbed his Income, for - he waa modest and abstemious la his way of living.. . His change to the vaudeville stage was duo to the salary of $500 per week, which seemed to offer a chance to4 recoup his fortunes and redeem a number of valuable picture that he had In th Art Institute In this city. Remenyl waa a sort of musical pioneer, and his nam was a household word la many place woe re greater artist were unknown. He died happy and in tho. harness; , but it seem pitiful that be should not have been able to relieve himself of the financial embarrassments that seem to beset so many of th artistic temperament. -The startling new la wafted over the wire to the effect that at th conclusion of her engagement at th Winter Garden, at Berlin, next autumn. Mis Lillian Russell will give fifteen performance at St. Petersburg and flv at Moscow. Tho nam modest authority states that ah will get "something mere than $2,000 per week, a well as her traveling expenses." Fortunately ah has given out the figure before the Russian press censor had a chance to remark: - "la nle lloublloa." - - . - - - : 0 ' ..'.; -J- ' ' -Mason Mltchel and Duncan Harrison have enlisted. Evidently th member ot th strategy board are not aware of this, or their resignation would have been handed to tho President before this news brok out. , . -v , . . -. : " :' , 'It is rather remarkable what can be accomplished In th matter of dramatic representation at cheap prices. " At the popular tn-twenty-and-thirty" schedule. Colonel Hopkins has managed to present such plays as "Shenandoah." "Held by tho Enemy," "Charity Ball." "Men and Women." "Little Lord Fountleroy," and "Aa Enemy of the King." - The royalty en thee play range from $350 to $750 per week, which adds a very Important Item to the revivals, aside from the scenic environment and costume. The actor possibly do not count for so much. Th Industry of a eontlnuousxactor or actress 1 something to wonder at and. commend in these days, when th ordinary Thespian ts content to learn on -or twe parts a season. Th new stag manager at Hopkins', Walter Craven, has been doing excellent work with th really good material la tbe stock com- -; - - It is a pleasure to remark that Julia Arthur has finally made up her mind and will return to the stag next' season. Thus advised, her brother Arthur, who la also her manager, is going ahead with booking. . Miss Arthur has not dropped her Shakespearian Idea and will give a series of th immortal poet's play. Meanwhile she is resting quietly at her country homo near Boston. Her beautiful horn present a tempting target for any Spanish warship that might happen to be coastingdown that way, but it is to be hoped th belligerent Spaniards will pas th shining mark in this instance. , Th Columbia theater dosed its door last night for. th regular season of 1897-aS. "Th French Maid" concluded a very successful three weeks' engagement. Tho past season has la every way been nlghly successful, and Manager Will J. Davis states that It has been one of tho most successful In the history of the theater. There Is some talk of a, supplementary summer season, which will most likely begin some time in June. Tho regular season of 1898-89 will not begin until August. It Is the intention of Messrs. Hayman A Davis to eontin( the same policy mapped out for the Columbia theater throughout next season that haa marked tho one lust concluded. There are several productions which bare net been seen In Chicago, and some which hav not been seen anywhere outside- of New York. - already booked.- Mr. Hayman is now in Europe, and may bring back -some novelties from there. A resume of the peat season la the Columbia theater will show that but sixteen attractions occupied tho forty weeks. This goes to show that attractions are not plentiful, and that Chicago can easily stand engagements of two, three, four, and fire weeks. Most of tho engagements were tor three weeks, one or two for four, and several for two. The only week attractions that the Columbia had the past season waa "Th Heart of Maryland" and Shannon and Kelcey. The other attractions were "My Friend from India." "Jack and the Beanstalk." "Man from Mexico," Julia Marlowe. "Whirl of the Town." Lillian Russell. Delia Fox, and Jeff D Ad gel is, "Round of Pleasure," DeWolf Hopper. "The Bell of New York." "What Happened to Jones," "Sign of the Cross." "Never Again." May Irwin, and "Tbe French Maid." . THEATRICAL NOTE 3.
