The latter attempted to seduce the Professor into purchasing some shares in the Senator, but the cunning old scientist was on his guard, and, while be was ready to confess that tile miners all bad a goal thing, and that Posits must become the mining-town of the Territory, yet he was not exactly prepared to buy.

Ellis came in and took the fellow to the Central Station. An examination of his pockets discovered several articles.most of which belonged to Lord Tarbat, and two bunches of hotel-keys. He also had a valuable gold watch, which is be-hewed to have been stolen ouS of the Pacific Hotel. He is said to be the most skillful hotel thief in the city. He has been here a long time.

'Last winter he taught phonography at Drew's Business College, on the West Side, and is said to be quite an etpert in short-hand writing. Ito dresses quite elegantly. His hair is curly. He Las gray eyes, and a soft voice. He will be examined before Justice Boyden this morning.

The Principal Lodes, and Their Owners InveAigations by a Scientist. MR. CAGE. On tbe 8th day of November there was published iu the local columns of this paper an article purporting, and intended to be, an exposure of the business of the firm of Montgomery, Ward of No. 104 Michigan street.

The article was based on what was supposed to be correct information, but a thorough investigation by this office satisfies us that the article was grossly unjust, and not warranted by the real facts. The firm of Montgomery, Ward Co. is a bona fide firm, composed of respectable persons. and doing a perfectly legitimate business in a peifectly legitimate manner.

LOCAL ITEMS.

i The Herald, a small penny daily, started about five months ago, is no more. The alarm from Box 163, at half-past 3 o'clock yesterday morning, was caused by a fire in a frame building, No. 101 Crosby street. occupied by Thomas Stark. Loss, ,100 uninsured.

Yebterday morning about 6 o'clock Michael Dalton, of Clinton Junction, in trying to get on a freight train of the Pittsburgh Fort Wayne Railroad, slipped and fell, the WhedIS of two cats pabsing over his left leg below the knee, crushing it. lie was removed to the County II pital. about 'clock in a upied chael Dg to Fort As of knee, minty The Bandsmen Itchase The Proposition Made Them, aud Will Be Sued by the City. A coeference of the attorneys representing the city, Mr. Gage, and Mr.

Gage's bondsmen was to have been held yesterday afternoon. in luminance of the adjournment of the meeting held Saturday, but, as the city was notified yesteiday morning that the bondsmen weal(' do nothing, the coulerence was indefinitely postponed. The city demanded'of the bondsmen that they elimrld stipulate that they would take no advantage of the turning over of Mr. Gage's property, and that, if the sum realized from its sale did not cover the dedelency, they would make good the deficit. The bondsmen declined to make any new contract, so the authorities have decide-1 to sue on the bond without unnecessary delay.

They think it barely possible Mr. Gage may be thrown into bankruptcy by some of his and any one to whom he owes 2a0 caul do it. du that event, the city would have to take it chances with the other creditors, and even if Mr. age's property were in its possession, it would have to he surrendered in court for the benefit of all his creditors. Fearing tbie, it has been decided to proceed agathet the bondsmen, takiug the property at the same time, and deducting the amount realized front it from the amount realized from the bondsmen.

Other gentlemen. however, well acquainted whir the condition of Mr. Gares affairs. du not believe that there is the least danger that any proceedings in bankruptcy will be begun. Judge Norton and Mr.

Caulfield were at the Pacific Hotel last evening. in consultation with Mr. Gage. Nothing was made public as to what happened, but it Is understood that Mr. Gage's original proposition to turn over Ilia property is btanding.

They profess, and we have no doubt truly, to purchase these articles for cash direct front the manufacturers, and in large quantities, and.

of course, at less eobt than dealcre who buy on cred.t. They also save all the cost and profits which are incidental to trade through several intermediary hands. They keep no large stores and wet ehouses, have no runners nor salesmen, and thus avoid heavy rents and salaries. They do not retail geode. They sell upon written orders only, and for cash.

They send these goods by express, and each consignee is, by exisan tpress contract. authorized to open the package of goods, examine them. and, if not satisfied. can decline taking the things sent him. If the is satisfied with the goods, he pays the bill to the express company, and in no event Is he in any way obliged or conaiscov- poled to take the goods, or pay therefor, except by his own volition.

It is dilicult to see how any person can be swindled or imposed -upon LlIbineES thOtti transacted. We have taken pains to investigate this business, and have no question that Montgomery, Ward it Co. are doing a legitimate trade. This plan of doing business was suggested by the growing combinations of farmers aud eirang- ers, to deal directly with first houses and, to meet this, manufacturers have already made ar- rangements In many cases to deal throueli agents with Granges or Clubs, at wholesale prices. Montgomery, Ward Co.

One fine morning. a few days ago, a raercantile friend, fully atmed arid equipped as the law directs, with a Spencer carbine, blankets, eaddlebags, and a bottle of fair proportious covered with wicker-wore aud bearing a suepicioua appearance generally, challenged THE TRIBUNE correepondent for a ride over to the new unuiug town of Posita, eituated in what is popularly known as the Ilardserabble silver mining district, and distant about 35 or 40 miles to the southwest of Canon City.

The prehunnariee were soon settled; a few additional supplies ordered revolvers were strapped on in hot haste adieux with admiring groups of jetaous friends were exchanged and, gracefully seated upon the backs of two fiery, untamed brouchos, your correspondent aud mutual friend" vanished over the crazy cottouwood bridge than spans the Arkansas at this point, and struck out for the famous allver nalues of the new 1.1 Dorado. In the evening, after a ride through a lovely and romantic region, we drew rein in front ot a cottonwood cabin, known as the Ellilioru Hotel, and situated In the heart of the douriehiug towu of Foeita. Ti! IIARESCRABBLE IIILVER-MINES are a late diecovery, and are Dow hardly deftloped. They take their name floua Llardserabble Creek, a small stream which empties into the Arkansas about 40 miles above Pueblo. but the mines proper are not located in the vicinity of the etream, and should bear no telationelep in the way of title.

The silver-producing ore is all found within a scope of mountain-countiy 20 miles square, located in the southern foot-Lille of the Wet Mouutaiu Valley. The prize first stumbled upon by Dick Irwin, the famous guide and proenector, in the fall of lte3S. Dick kept the discovery to himself. arid visited the San Juan coentry, hoping to find something etill richer but, failleg in this, he returned a fow years later, pat up a cabin, and made hie diecovery known to the world. The first srecimens of ore assayed remarliably rich.

And if he is wanting in the third act, he is eyen further from the requiremeets of the part in the fourth. Mr. Blaisdell is at home in School" and Caste he is weak but fair in Man and Wife," but in The Geneva Cross Mr. Blaisdell shows that his calibre ie Ismail. His defectiveness in acting i made more conspicuous by his refusal to disguise himself.

Is it stern Roman scorn of appearing what he ie not, or is it because he prefers himself as he is Mr. Blaistiell admits that he is always Mr. Blaisdell. Knowing this, is he not open to criticism because he refused to make an effert to be somebody else for a few hours. It is not a question for Mr.

Blaisdell any longer it is one which the patrons of the theatre feel interested in haying answered. Mathieu Monieau is a villain, and Mr. Salsbury answers for him. VIIlaine, so far as the experience of the casual observer goes. are not blustering, loud-mouthed fellows.

The are bullies, not villains. Mathieu Monleau SS played by Mr. bury. therefore, is a bully, a lief specimen of a bully whose lauguage is Swooth and treacherous. and whose nianners are lout and boieterous.

Mr. Soegis as M. Le Brun, played the part with his accustomed fidelity and appreciation of its poettion as a merely accessory character. His make-up was excellent, aud playing throughout even and self-contained, except in the last act. Nieion Corniehet, a workmau in a Fretich factory, is a pleasant character, allowed certain privileged.

of which Mr. Bishop availed himself cleverly. In the last two tattle. he is a soldier, and here Mr. Bishop preeerved the character in its altered circumstances.

We have no fault to find with Mr. Bishop. Mr. Giddens had, as usual, a very ineigniticant part to play, and. as usual, succeeded in imparting to it some of those masterly touches of character which have aided in forming for him the enviable reputation he has earned.

But when Mr. Gidieus essays to sing the Mareeillaiee" in French would it not be just as well to get the aoceet where it belongs? Miss Meeks 1 plays Gabrielle. the central female figure in thas. group, mid in this part still retains her claims to the praise she has previonsiy earned. In the lighter portions of the first two acts.

she is a little out of plaiie, owing to the fact that elm is taller thee the man she is playing with, and taller than any of the ladies. But in the third arid fourth acts, where the roost intense feelings are called into play, Miss Meeks stands above any of the other players, both in appreciation and in expression. She succeeds in embodying the author's idea of a French and. with the power of a true artiet. reveals those couilicts of emotion, the ettiuggie between her love for her imebatid, and her love for her country, with an admirable expression, blending the sanguinary haired of the enemy, with the tender fear for the safety of her husband.

During the convenetion that ensued, Agameiz discovered that this common day laborer was posseseed of a large fund of geological information, which he had acquired by personal investigations, induced solely by his innate love for the ecience. Agassiz was delighted at meeting him, and introduced Miller to the members of the Society, explaining the manner in which he, had become acquainted with him. The friendships thus formed confirmed through their lives, and Agaseiz wrote the introduction to Hugh Miller's that published work.

Sotheru at the Academy of Music was an event in the theatrical world for which the patrons of the drama looked anxiously. Lord is not a new It is one which had formed the subject of magazine articles, newspaper articles, and all Eorts of articles has furnished small-talk by the cart-load, and been diecuesed au intinitum for the past decade. Chicago, it is true, has not been favored with Mr. Sothern'a Pundreary for years. but whether that ehould maae Mr.

Sothern'e engagement more or less acceptable we don't 'know. The character is so well known that there is nothieg left to say about it. It is as familiar, almoet, to those who have never seen Mr. Sotheria as to those who have, the advantage with the latter being that they have seen the original. the former having only applauded Mr.

Sotherua imitators, more or lees tad, all of them. The character. if it ever existed, had disappeared from actual life, and the author's creation remains only as a reminiscence while the actofe, rich and amueing as it is in its alternate brightness and never did exist, except as a carleature, and is. therefore. as acceptable by thoee ho have never seen it till to-day, as it was when first brouxht out, or as it will'oe if some fortuuate actor of Mr.

Sothem's genies can auearth it hall a contura hence. The original drama, Our American Cousin: has been entirely temodeled. The situations are changed, and. naturally enough, Mr. Sotirern'a version has been tiled dowu where other characters bad prornineuce, au as to leave Mr.

Sothern very couspienous indeed. There are four acts, and but one scene to each act. Hence the acenery is superb. lucre is but one character, and only one man who can play it. Therefore Mr.

Sothern is irresistible. lie re not fen-ay only he is artistic. He absolutely makes hundreary a a mere possibilitv.aud to do this is to accomelieh hat no other fellow can do. Not a gesture thato is unnatural not a speech, however idiotic, that Is forced. can be found and this is owing to the actors efforts.

and not to anything It is not ati wig that hundreds of thousands of people have laughed themeelvee hoaree over Dandteary as played by Mr. Setheru; it would be strauge if anythnig else bad occurred. And although Dundreary's imbeeiiities) have been quoted on 'Change. roared over on the street. and formed the bon-mot of the fireside, sz enunciated by Mt, Sethern at the Academy of Maiec last evening, they were as crisp and fresh as if they had never before beau uttered.

We doubt whether there was more than a small percentage of the audience who hal not heard that lemma-able soliloqnv of the noble lord upon birds of a feather together, and yet the audience laughed last evening, and laughed three eticeesWV() rounds a these remarks before the noble lord could proceed with Lis observations. And this was at once a specimen of the whole performance, and a criticism, too. Mr. Bowers played Trenchard well. The character, of course, is that of a stage-Yankee.

and all that is good and noble is centerd ia it. It is a character part, and one which takes with an audieece. smite of impossibility. Miss Minnie Walton. of course, ae Georgina.

was only a foil for Mr. Sothern. She is very pretty and graceful, and that is all that is needed in this part. Mr. Lytton Sothern, son of the great comedian, played the the part of Buddicumbe, 'Valet to his lordship, without effort.

It is not a part to shine in, but the youzig gentioman made a very favorable impression. Miss Nellie Boyd played Mary and left little to be desired. The part calls for nothing but sweet simplicity and native grace, and that Miss Boyd can furnish without diteculty. The remainder of the cast calls for no especial comment. The orchestra was up to its usual mark, and the acenery was in every act quite worthy of the distinguished star and of the taeatre.

HOCLEY'S THEATRE The opera over, Hooley't is itself once more not Quite the Parlor Home of Comedy, but the home of the legitimate drama. The drama with which the second part of the season opens is the most palatable that has been put upon the stage since the season commenced, and speaks well Fir the judgment of the now mattagement. We have already spoken of Tee Geneva Cross," by Mr. George Fawcett Rowe. as being a drama that has called forth the praise of the critics of New Yolk, and have partially familiarized the public with its main points.

by publishing a synopsis of the piece. After seeing it played. we are readv to indorse the unusual praise with which it -has been greeted in the East. Mr. Rowe.

in treating a French subject, has caught the French air. His language is Feenen in his women aro Frenchwomen the action of the play is French. inasmuch as it is brilliant and decisive and the construction of the drama. the preservation of the unities, the masterly workiug-up of the acts individually, and the play as a whole. are French, because they are far superior to anything that has been aecamplistited by an Engilah or American dramatist for a long time.

Tile play is eyrumetrical, aud every act is as complete iu itself as the drama of whieb it forms a atep. The interest gradually intensifies throughout the whole, and culminates in the last scene, and the piece itself may be compared to a crystal, each of whose edees has a lustre of its own. Unfortunately such a drama i rare nowadays. Unfortunately we eeldona see a piece in which the characters are drawn with freedom and holdnesse and yet without danger of burlesque where the dialogue is sprightly and scintillating, and wLere the tableau is a clituam instead of a mere tableau. Fortunately The Geneva Cress is au exception to the general rule.

and foreuriately it is placed in a theatre where the mounting, though superb, is not everything. To the author and the manager, great praise almost uuqualidedpraise-eis due, hut the players are scarcely up to the demands. In fact, while the modern society drama reigned at Hooey's, the compaay at Hooley's was equal to tile task-. The Geneva Cross is not a modern society drama." It is a piece of a school which demands infinitely more of the author, and a great deal more of the actor. and it is a piece which cannot but discloee to Mr.

Haeley, certain weaknesses in his Company. To begin with the leading man Mr. Illatidall as Piet -du Bourg, manages to keep up with the cowtautly increa6ing deaaanda of the elece for two acts but there he aeons.

The unusual movements of the inhabitants, the almost universal chanze frcm mil to military coAmme, the exercising of the Mobiles and the National Guards on the public parades.

the continual sounding of the trumpet and beating of drums kept them tonstaotly excited and uneasy, and pet them to reflecting. Some of them, refngees from the suburbs, with their masters. visibly lost their power of finding their way about. Thev hesitated in tbe choice of streete, were uncertain of the traces, scented their path, and, at every corner, consulted some other dog which lived in the neighborhood. These suburban do2-s were scared at the noise of passing arid ran from them, while the city doge scarcely toak the trorible to get out of the v.ay of the wheels.
