Tho numerical superiority of the French artillery has been specially kept In view with reference to the necessity of raising now batteries." IT MAT SETTLE THE FIGHT. Brooklyn Capital in Ifew Corporations. Couff Island Game. Special to the Eagle. Albany, N. Y., December 10 John S. Bussell and David F. Moore of Brooklyn are among the directors of Truth company, of New York, incorporated with the secretary of state, with a capital of 8100,000, to carry on the printing and publishing business, and especially the publication of the paper known as Truth. Tho Bed Star Manufacturing company of New York has been incorporated to manufacture and sell a compound known as the Bed Star Solid illumlnant and to handle oils and compounds for use on bicycles . and for other purposes. The capital stock Is 85,000, divided into shares of $10 each, and the directors are William S. Thorn, jr., who subscribes for 100 shares of stock: Frederick 8. Van Vleck, 100 shares, both of Brooklyn, and Clark B. Ferry of Sew York olty. Bobert Brown, jr., the game and fish protector for the First district (comprising Kings, Queens, Suffolk and Richmond counties), has reported as follows to the state department for the month of November: Distance traveled in the performance of his duties, 545 miles at a cost of S41.40. One suit brought agalnstEinma Flshbaught of Richmond county, for having trapped yellow birds, was lost, the cose having been carried to the court of appeals, which decided against the stato. Chief Executive Officer McNanghton says, In reference to the allotment of space at the exposition, that the New York boam of general managers since last August, the time fixed when allotment of space was to commence, have In every possible way urged upon the heads of departments at Chicago, and especially upon the chief of the department of installation, the importance of an early allotment, particularly to Intending individual exhibitors, and they uniformly have been assured that that work was progressing as rapidly as was possible under existing ciroumstances. Referring to this matter the director general wrote Mr. McNaughton a few days ago as follows: "That the allotment of space is proceeding as rapidly and with as much satisfaction to intending exhibitors in general as could possibly be expected. That the assignment of space in the manufacturers' building has been delayed, but is now about ready to be sent out." The great embarassment under which tho exposition authorities labor in this matter is that the applications for space from the different states and territories far exceed the amount of spaoe allottod to the United States, necessitating discrimination on the part of the heads of the departments in tho exhibits to bo made. Satisfactory progress Is made on the relief map of the state of New York, which is being prepared by Ward's natural soienee establishment of Rochester, under the Immediate direction of Henry L. Ward. No pains or expense will be spared to have it accurate and correct. Mr. Ward has not only been furnished with the best maps of tho state, but with maps of each county in the state, and whilo discrepancies and errors have been discovered in the county maps, they have been reconciled by his Indefatigable labor. The relief map will show the water ways of the state, artificial and natural inland lakes, mountains and streams, each hamlet, village and city, with the number of inhabitants respectively, and other information which will ba of inestimable value. The geographical and topographical features of tho stato can be seen at a glance. The scale is one inch to the mile, and a room, convenient of access and well lighted, is being arranged in the New York state house at Chicago, for its reception. The State Dairymen's association suggested a modification of the rules and regulations in regard to the dairy exhibit, as promulgated by the chief of that department. ' Chief Buchanan advises that he will examine the proposed amendments and report his opinion thereon before the meeting of the New York State Dairymen's association, to be held next week at CobleskilU In the department of horticulture, J. M. Samuels, chief, has prepared full and complete rules relating to the horticultural exhibit which will be promulgated In a few days. Thoy comprehend everything connected with that exhibit including regulations in regard to canned fruit, whether entered for competition or display. A LARGE ARRIVAL LIST, But Not many of tne Beportea Snips Have Beacned Brooklyn Vet. The shipping arrival list of yesterday was tho largest for a long while, but not many of the vessels have reached Brooklyn so far. Tho steamship Alexandria of tho Anchor line came to the Union stores this morning after a remark ably good passage from Gibraltar. She brings dried and green fruit principally. The steamer Eastgate, from Progresso, arrived at Woodruff's stores this morning with a cargo of 6,000 bales of sisal grass, and had a good voyage. This is one oi tne most economical ana Dest paying tramps entering the port, and a great freighter as compared with her registered tonnage. Even at tho low freight of a quarter of a cent a pound, each trip pays about o,uw ana ner cnarter only calls for 83,000 a month.

Bostoh, Mass., December 10 Charles F. Donnelly, esq., of the Massachusetts board of lunacy and cnariry, says regarding the charge that the stato board of charities of Massachusetts has been in the habit of sending paupers of this state to New York to bo provided for by that state, that it is an old one. "It is," ho said, "to my knowledge nt least eighteen or twenty years old. Tho origin of It all is probably owing to tho fact that former commissioners of Massachusetts and tho existing state board of charities had an agreement with the emigrant commissioners of New York that all emigrants who landed in Now York and who subsequently transferred themselves to Massachusetts were subject to bo roturned to the emigrant commissioners of New York if they fell into want and bocame a public chargo in Massachusetts. Tho ground of the agreement was that New York was tho point of landing of the paupers in question and the state of New York profited by their landing In receiving 82 as head money for each passenger arriving there as an emigrant, resulting in the accumulation of a very largo sum per annum, sometimes approaching a million dollars, fortho treasury of New York state. The practice, therefore, of transferring emigrant paupers from Massachusetts to New York originated in that way and has been adhered to so far as it has continued with the tacit understanding and approval of tho local authorities of Now York, ns for as I know. As a matter of justice it would seem but fair that, as tho New York authorities assume the responsibility of permitting tho landing of pauper emigrants, they ought to continue to be responsible for them, no matter to what place such emigrants may bo subsequently transferred. I am sure that tho authorities of our stato ore not in the habit of sending to New York any persons who fall into want or distress except in those cases where New York should bo fairly and legitimately responsible. I know nothing whatever as to the number of recent transfers of suoh a character made to New York. I assume that from timo to timo, paupers belonging to New York, not only of the emigrant class, but also those having their proper domicile there, are nocessarily transferred from our stato, so that the commonwealth shall not have to boar the burden of supporting them. I have nothing to say in reference to the alleged inhumanity of Agent Doane of the stato board of lunaoy and charity, in tho treatment of paupers lately transferred from 3oston to Now York. All I can say is that I cannot creditsuch a statement, but will say that the matter will bo Investigated." General Butler, when shown the dispatch from New York, charging the indiscriminate dumping of paupers within that state by the Massachusetts commissioners, said: "I have no doubt of it, and I have no doubt that tho class of persons referred to have been sent to New York and elsewhere for many years past, and as far as I recollect it was carried on befoso I was governor, and, indeed, I believe it went on whilo I was governor. I could not prevent it, for the governor has no control over tho matter." THE ALLEGED KIDNAPPER CAUGHT. Arreat of tho man Who Took Away Jessie Walker. Thomas T. Dougherty, a well dressed young man, until recently employed in a New York stock broker's office and residing with his mother at 220 Forty - fifth street, was arrested this morning by Detective Sergeant Connor of tho Central office squad, charged with having kidnapped Jessie C, the six year old daughter of dentist Fayette 0. Walker of 41 Schermer - horn street, from the corner of Schermerhorn and Court streets on Thanksgiving day, Dougherty was drunk and kept the child away for Ave hours. She was taken from him on an elevated train at the city hall station on Adams street, by a stranger, who later learned where she lived and returned her to her homo. Detective Connor has been working on the case since the 25th of November. His efforts to discover the identity of tho person who took the child away were rewarded when chance led him to Mr3. Hoey's candy storo at 53U Court street. Mrs. Hoey knew Dougherty and remembered that bo brought a child answering Jessie's description to the store on Thanksgiving day. He bought sarsaparilia for the girl and borrowed 10 cents from Mrs. Hoey to pay his car fare. After that the detective learned he took Jessie down to Bay Bidgo on nn electric car and returned on tho elevated railroad. Doughorty pleaded not guilty when arraigned before Justieo Walsh this morning. He said ho did not mean to kidnap tho ehild, but admitted that ho was drunk at the time. His examination was set down for Tuesday a week hence. Mr. Wolker, in court, admitted that little Jessie was unharmed by her experience. FINAL JUDGMENT SIGNED. Very ITIucli in Favor of Charlotte X Bolton. Justice Pratt of the supremo court this afternoon signed tho final judgment of absolute divorce in favor of Charlotte L. Bolton against William C. Bolton, president of the Bolton Drug company. The judgment provides that should Mrs. Bolton's stock in the drug company yield less than 1,000 a year, or in caso of Insolvoney or dissolution or other unusual delay in tho payment of dividends, the plaintiff may move to set aside tho referee's report in reference to alimony and apply for alimony to tho court The plaintiff is also allowed costs. WERNER'S APPLICATION DENIED. The Habeas Corpus Case Against Warden Brown Disposed Of. A return of the writ of habeas corpus sned out by A. T. Wagener for the production of the body of Carl Werner, now in Sine SInu - Drison. was mado beforo Justice Bartlett to - day. i wLtr s counsel emimea extra commutation, but Judgo Bartlett held that tho matter by commutation was discretionary with the governor, and that when ho had exorcised his discretion no court in existence could interfere.

NONE EUT ROYAL BAKING POWDER is absolutely pure. No other equals it or approaches it in leavening strength, purity, or wholesome - ness. (See U. S. Gov't Reports.) No other is made from cream of tartar specially refined for it and chemically pure. No other makes such light, sweet, finely flavored and wholesome food. No other will maintain its strength without loss until used, or will make bread or cake that will keep fresli so long, or that can be eaten hot with impunity, even by dyspeptics. No other is so economical. The Baking Powders now being offered in this vicinity, with the statement that they are "as good as the Royal," have been shown by the official analyses to be composed of alum and detrimental to health. The official chemists of the United States and Canada, state analysts, municipal boards of health and physicians indorse the great qualities of the Royal . Baking Bowder. A Fresh. Outbreak of Smallpox in the City. "Bat the Malady is Not Epidemic by Any Means, Say the Doctors There Have Been Twenty - seven Deaths in the Hospital Since October 6. Dr. Moore Slakes a Statement Abont tho Behr - mann Episode. Thirteen now smallpos cases were admitted to the Contagious Disease hospital lato yesterday afternoon and this morning. This makes the total number of admissions to the hospital since October G, 118 cases. In that time twenty - seven deaths havo ocourred at the city institution from this disease, a somewhat small percentage of mortality, Health Commissioner Grllfln thinks, when the fact that many of tho cases occurring in October were hemorrhagic in character and, therefore unusually virulent. Tho patients admitted since yesterday afternoon aro Peter Walker, aged 3 years, of 238 Knickerbocker avenuo, Sirs. Mary E. Dailey and her sister in law, Alice Dailey, aged 27, from 7 Palmetto Btreet, Samuel Blickmann, aged 2 years, from Christopher street and Glenmore avenue; Rose Nichols, aged 10, and Edward Nichols, 8 years old, from 847 Madison street; Julia Williamson, 9 years: Mamie, 7 years; Sophio, 11 years; Martha, 5 years; Josie, 3 years, and Bose, S months, from 189 Twenty - first street, and Miss Katie Jilartin, aged 18 years, from 181 Twenty - first street. The Martin woman took the disease from tha Williamson children. Commissioner Griffin was asked to - day if ho had any statement to make concerning the error in judgment alleged to have been made by Dr. Moore, one of the health inspectors, in failing to diagnose a susploious case at 494 Fifth avenuo. Mr. Eobert W. Goggin of 424 Fiith avenue lost his wife from tho disease, and is of the opinion that the outbreak in Fifth avenue would have been prevented if Dr. Mooro had not blundered in his diagnosis. Commissioner Griffin said he would take no action in the matter. Dr. Moore, he claimed, certainly had much experlenca with smallpox, and when a suspicious case was reported to him he certainly acted acoording to his best judgement. The commissioner intimated that he could not go behindtha report of his sanitary inspections in respect to reports on small pox cases for they necessarily had experience, more than an ordinary practitioner, with the disease. It was not always possible, ho claimed, to correctly diagnose a case of small pox at certain early stages because there wero other eruptive diseases chiokenpox for example, which nad the same general rppearanoe. oven to the umbilical characteristics of the postule. It was impossible ior me ncaitn department to securo physicians who could bo certain in all cases. Dr. Moore was called in to make his statement. He said: "When I was first called to the house I found that tho only person who was ailing there was Mrs. Behr - inan. She had an eruption on her forehead, but told mo it did not amount to much and that she was always so affected when hor liver was disordered. The pustules wero covered with witch powder and did not have the appearance of smallpox. She did not have the disease as a matter of fact." ...no uiuwia ui but) uorry society aau meiuiiB lBland authorities are on the outlook for a St. Louis woman passenger by the steamship Giana and fifteen young Italian cirls, whom, it is said, the woman noa imported for immoral purposes. rTO - i C . . . .

"Was Formally Introduced in the Reichstag To - day. A Strong Speech la Its Support by the Minister of War Text of the Measure Which Has Caused So Siuch Discussion Throughout Europe During the Past Few Months. Beblt - , December 10 The army bill was Introduced to - day in the Reichstag. General Von Kaltenborn Stachau, minister of war, accompanied the introduction of the bill with a long and earnest speech in its support' He declared that Germany must be prepared to enter, at any moment, into a anal war, which would dwarf 11 preceding wars, in the magnitude of the forces engaged and of the issues to bo decided. It was imperative that evory man in Germany able to bear arms should bo ready to respond when called upon. The bill was a measure oi supreme necessity and demanded no sacrifice that the patriotism oi the nation should be willing to grant, and no sacrifice greater than what other nations were making in propara - Ition for the mighty struggle that might at I any tlmo begin. It was in obedience to tho .supreme need of preparing Germany for that struggle that the bill had been prepared, and the government hoped and expected that it would receive the support of every one intorest - ied in maintaining the intogrity of tho father - jland and in defending those advantages which 'it had cost so much of German blood and Ger - iinnn energy to obtain. Tho war mfnister described at length tlio details of the bill and ehowed that ever - effort had been made to make .the burden as light as a prudent regard for tho security of tho country and tho efficiency of tho ianny would permit. The address was favorably roceivod and tho utterances of General Von Kaltenborn Stachau :in regard to tho almost certainty of a great lEuropean'war at an early date evidently produced a profound impression as coullrming tho predictions of Chancellor Caprivi on tho same subject. The bill which has caused so much discus - ion runs as follows: It Axes tho peace tooting of tho German army Including privates and corporals, on n yearly average, at 49:,0e8 men from October 1, lb'J3, to March 31, 18W. The infantry will be composed of 711 battalions, the caval. - v of 477 squadrons the field artillery of 494 batteries, the foot artillery of 37 battalions, the pionoers of 24 battalions, tho railway troops of 7 battalions and tho train of 21 battalions. The average strength is calculated on the principle that tho infantry troops in general will go through two years' active service with tho colors. Tho necessary changes in the establishment oi commissioned ofiicers, doctors, etc., will be fixed in tho estimates iaid before the imperial diet. Privates can be promoted to vacant posts as nou commissioned ofiicers conditionally upon the strength of the establishment being otherwise maintained. The one year volunteers are not included in the above llgures. Tho preamble sets forth that by tho law of March 11, msl, the peace footing was ilxt'd at 4GS, - 109 men until aiarch 31, 1894. This number was increased to 486.983 by tho law of July 15, 18y0, which came into force from October 1 of tho same year. A new legislative enactment Is theroforo nocessary before April 1. 1894. Moanwhilo tho political and military situation has altered to our disadvantage and demands thorough reforms. The superiority which we owed in tho past to our being the first to introduce the system of universal liability to carrv arms has disappeared, for wo havo been already outstripped by our neighbors in this direction. In .Franco tho universal liability to service ras enforced by tho law of July. 1839 on the most swooping scale. Tho average pcac - footing of the French armv during the hist throe years amountsto 519,(100. the number of recruits for 1S90, roughly speaking, to 230.000 aien, and tho number oi men trained in twentv - flve years to about 4,053,000. ltussia is equaUy'activo, and tho peace footing of her army amounted in 18H9 to 920.000, in 1892 to 987.000 men. Only about 100,000 men of the estimated strength are serving in Asia. The contingent of recruits for 1891 amounted to 281.000 men, 24.000 of whom belong v Asia. In twenty - throe years the number of trained soldiers will thus amount to 4.500,000. In faoe of such a position, we have only one means ofpreserving our safety and independence. We must make full use of our national defensive powers. We must havo an organization which absorbs every really ablebodled man, and then Germany can look forward without anxiety to aa attack, in full confidence that tho quality of her army is successfully maintained. For this purpose wo must abandon the tardy - process of waiting for the gradual expansion of our present organization, and earn - out the great, just and patriotic principle of ourmilitary 6ystem as far as is compatible with tho nuineri - ca., commercial and Unam - ia! resources of tho German empire. The simplest method would have been to create new organizations on an adequate scale, hut the expenditure involved would be out of aU proporti. n to the ability of the empire to bear it. The problem can onlv bo solved by retaining as far as possible th"old framework while wo tram within it a correspondingly higher numb - r of ablebodWl men This cannot be obtained except bv shortening the period of active service. This "is no breach With the past. The onstitutional three years' service is to be retained In principle, but in the case of the infantry a shorter period is considered possible so long as seeuritv is offered that the training will be more thorough than heretofore. " For this purpose the estimates must be increased on the one band, and on the other hand establishments must be created which will relieve the troops of a portion of their former duties. Although in ordmarv circumstenees tho men in the infantry will hi; dismissed at the . - n - l Of two years' service as dispositions urlauln - r, tho possibility must bo reserved of retniniu" men until the end of the third voar in cas - s of grave misbehavior, provided for in paragraph 13 of tho military penal code. Instead of the present system, under which a maximum and a standard number of men constituting the effective strength ..f tho army are laid down for each annual contingent, mixed average number must be henceforth determined for a given term of years iu respect of private soldiers and corporals with the colors, wiiile the precise nu'u - ber of oth. - r non commissi - med oilleers will bo settled in the annua! estimates, as has hitherto been the ease in respect of commissioned ofiicers, doctors, etc. The interval hitherto al - owea to exist tw - rween the dismiss. - .! from the colors of one year's contingent and the enrol - meat of the ;reSh batch of recruits disappears j and with it the saving therein - eltected These sums are to cover the cost of a higher avera - - e j Strength for trie time being. Periods of seven I years cannot be retained in the nresnt eirmim - ' stances. A period of five wars corresponds. With the census of the population and t!i legal dUX.a"on of lj!lr'''am - nt ami thereby affords a sufficient guarantee of stauilitv. "Tho strengthening of the armv and tho shortening oi the time of service must naturallv be accompanied by n. - v. - supplementary organizations, such its the extension of the cadet corps and oi the preparatory and higher schools for non commissioned ofiicers, together with an increase in their pay and bounty moneys. "Moreover, measures must b - taken to promote the training of the troor.s under the new conditions of shortened service, viz., increase,! rewards forproil. - k - a - y in tactics and markman - Ship and increased supplies of inmmnition for rifle practice.

LoJfDON, December 10 The unseating of members of parliament returned at the last general election goes merrily on, much to the satisfaction of the liberals and tho corresponding disgust and chagrin of tho conservatives. The latest member to lose his seat is Mr. Horatio David Davies, conservative, who was returned from Bochester by a majority of 407 votes over Mr. Frederic Brunning Maddison, Gladstonlan. The liberals sent in a petition under the corrupt practices act against tho election of Mr. Davies and the election petition judges to - day handed down a decision depriving him of his seat on the ground of bribery, which consisted of treating electors. The Evening Standard says It has the best authority for stating that Mrs. Maybrlck is recovering from the effects of the hemorrhages with which she was recently attacked. The paper adds that her Illness was due to her own carelessness. The Baroness de Boques, Mrs. Maybrick's mother, telegraphs from Woking that her daughter passed a bad night and is Buffering from great weakness.

The steamer was beached after the collision to prevent her from sinkinir. but it is expected that she will float to - morrow. She will have to discharge her entire cargo. Hor mails and passengers wero saved, but one of her crew, a fireman, was drowned. Her cargo will be forwarded by the steamer Flintshire, which will leave Yokohama by December 16.

Drumont has refused to give any testimony relative to the Panama affair unless he is unconditionally released. It is believed that ho has important knowledge regarding the affairs of the company and that it wonld be a good stroke of policy to release him. There is a heavy gale in the English channel. Severe casualties have occurred. Two sohooners were driven ashore yesterday in the vicinity of Dover and wero towed off badly damaged. A galley bringing a pilot at Deal was capsized and the pilot drowned. A brig struck Beachy head. The crew was rosoued. Asohoonerwas wrecked on Menai straits. The Standard's Vienna correspondent saysi "The probable falluro of the monetary conference is so discounted here that its failure would make no impression. The principal Austro - Hungarian papers ridicule the prophecies of terrible consequences, contending - that any such aotion such as is foreshadowed in President Harrison's message would be a breach of laith toward creditors, which publio opinion in Amorico would not permit.

Treararar Bleckweon Says Tliey - are Depreciating' la Value Owing to the deplorable political situation in Long Island City, Treasurer Bleckwenn says that not only are the city bonds depreciating in value, but the value of desirable real estate Is on the decline and several agents in the city have already received instructions not to writo any more Are insurance policies at any rate until the mayoralty muddle Is settled. It is said that Kew York insurance companies anticipate rioting in the city before the difficulty is settled.

The plaintiff sued through James Suigan as guardian ad litem. The ground on which the aotion was based was that at the timo of the marriage Ootober 5, 1889 the plaintiff was only 13 years of age. Bachel Colata, the plaintiff's mother, testified that her daughter was born in Italy on September 21, 1876. The deposition of the governor of tho province in Italy was put in evidence, show ing that the record of birth of the plaintiff had been filed there on that date. Mrs. Colata, who lives at 21 Sackett street, said her daugher was married to the defendant by John Courtney at the oitv hall on the date above given. The plaintiff herself corroborated her mother's statement. The defendant abandoned her threo months after tho marriage. The decree will be granted. HE PLAYS CRAPS ALL THE TIME.

Fred Leslie's Death Cast a Gloom Over the Theatrical World Abroad "Liberty Hall" at the St. James The Terry School of Acting. Nearly Ready for "Hypntla" at the Hay - market Paderowskl's Successes He Will Sail for America in January. Losnos, December 10 This is the cattle show week, when London is filled with moro peoplo from the provinces than at any other time during tho year. For the theaters it is tho most thriving week of the year, the strangers in the city naturally turning at night to them for amusement. Tho death of Fred Leslie, which occurred on Wednesday last, threw o gloom over the London theatrical world, in which he was very popular. On Wednesday night the Gaiety thoater, where he was playing prior to his illness, was closed in honor of his memory. The closing of the house for this ono night entailed a loss of .300 upon the management. Mourning for tho dead actor, however, had no general effect and all the houses havo been doing a Bplondid business throughout the week. Tho original four act comedy, "Liberty Hall," by Mr. R. C. Gorton, has been produced at tho St. James theater, with George Alexander, tho manager of the theater; Miss Morion Terry, Miss Maude Millett and Ailsa Craig, Miss Ellen Terry's daughter, in the cast. It is a smartly written and oharming play. It hns a simplo English conventional plot and is well acted. It is drawing good houses. and seems destined for a long run, which will prove the fallacy of the idea that tho public does not care for sweot, pure plays, but wonts drama based on Ibsonism. Tho appearance of Miss Marion Terry and Ailsa Craig in "Liberty Hall," calls attention to the fact that the Terry family are opening in Bedford street, Strand, a school of acting, nn idea which has long been advocated by many members of the profession. Classes will be formed for teaching elocution, acting and stage dancing. Mr. Benjamin Terry, the father of the numerous Terry family, will preside and will be assisted by Mrs. Edmund Phelps, Miss Maud Milton, Miss Charlotte Elliott, Miss H. D'Auban nnd Mr. Walter Melbourne. A theater is to be built on a small stale, for the uso of the pupils. Many actors contend that such institutions aro useless. The experiment will, therefore, bo followed with muoh interest. Mr. John Hare will shortly produce at the Garrick theater the , hitherto unacted play "Robin GoodfolloWt" written by Mr. Carton, the author of "Liberty Hall." On Monday night Mr. Brookfleld's version of Sardou's "Divorcons," under the title of "Today," was produced at the Comedy theater. The risky situations in tho original play were greatly altered, one change being the transference of the cabinet particulier dinner to a public room in the Savoy hotel. The dialogue of tho play, in spots, is extremely witty, but the work is weighed down with much dullness in an attempt to spin n short farce into a comedy. Miss Lottie Vennes' clever acting saved the situation. Pruning may make the play a success. M. Sardou will prosecute Mr. Brookfleld for producing the play without his permission, although Mr. Brookfleld wrote to him and offered to share the profits. On Thursday Mr. Charles Wyndham successfully reopened the Criterion theater with Mr. Henderson's "Agatha," that had been renamed the "Silent Battle" to distinguish it from "Agatha Tylden," Mrs. Langtry's play. It proved a speoial treat for the admirers of line acting. On the Bomo night Terrv's theater reopened with Miss Florenco Warden's "Uncle Mike." It was presented by a capable company, but its members failed to save the play, which was aimless and unreal. The work has been condemned with faint praise. The Haymarket box office has been inundated with applicants for seats at tho first night of "Hypatia," which Mr. Tree has fixed for January 2. Rehearsals have been going on for a week already, and Mrs. Langu - y ends her Haymarket season to - day. leaving the stage free for final rehearsals. The cast for "Hypatia" is as follows: Hroatii Miaa Julia Nelion Fhil&mmon Mr. Fred Terry luachur Mr. Bsorbohm Tros Orestoa Mr. Lewis Waller C'yrll ....Mr. James Fernandez Theon Mr. U. Koroble Kuth Miss Olga Brandon As will bo seen from the cast the nlay differs considerably from the novel. Some new Incidents have been introduced and the character of Miriam has been changed to Isnchar. Tho story gives ample opportunity for gorgeous soenio display. There will be frequent changes of scone, tho principal seta being the market place in Alexandria, the exterior of the Ctesar - lum ana tne interiors or tne Temple and Chris tian church. As the whole of the designing has been under tho immediate core of Mr. Alma Tadema, some beautiful stage pictures should result. Crowds of Egyptians, Roman soldiers. Jews, slavos, monks, etc., give brightness and me to the scene. Incidental music has been composed by Mr. Hubert Parry. After numerous postponements, "Irmengardo" has been produced at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, with all the attributes of success except genius. It proved un immature, crude and amateurish work with no chaneo of success. Miss Loio Fuller, the originator of tho serpentine dance, has made a great sensation in Paris, where her beauty, her grace and her talent have been extolled on every nand. It is stated from Edinburgh that tho quoen has summoned tho American quartet of meister - singers to perform at Windsor castle on Saturday. Paderewski netted .900 from his single recital hi London on Tuesday last. He played at Brighton to - day. He travels in England In a special saloon car containing a piano, which enables him to practice on his journeys. Ho will sail for Now York in Janunry. Henri Marteau, thu Josof Hoffman of violinists, who played some years ago at the Richter concerts at St. Jamas' hall, has been engaged by Rudolf Aronson and Major J. B. Pond for a tour in America, beginning next January. Sir Augustus Harris has recurred to a long cherished plan the formation in London of a permanent operatic orchestra. His former efforts in this direction have been thwarted by the difficulty of persuuding first class musicians, especially wind instrument players, to attach themselves exclusively to him, abandoning all other engagements. At all the llrst class concerts held in London and at all performances of opera tho samo faces aro constantly to be seen of tho leading men of the profession. These will not give up their independence. Sir Augustus will have to be content with men of lesser eminence and experience if he desires to carry out his idea of a permanent band, working ten months out of the twelve and giving classical and promenade concerts when not engaged In opera. By constant practice and association together the cnaeinble would, however, become as perfect as to compensate for any loss through tho absence of the real leaders of the profession and If in addition Harris could secure the services of Richter or a conductor of nearly equal ability, ho could probably soon command a body of musicians unequalled in Europe.

The fight for the presidency of the Twenty - first ward Republican association has just taken on a phase that is Interesting. As everybody knows who Is familiar with the political situation in tho ward, Timothy Dyson and John Brunnomer, the present head of the association, are the candidates for the presidency. They are allied with different factions, and, from indications, mean to contest the matter hotly. Both sides have been gathering together all tho strength that they con oommond, and the slightest loss of either party is taken to moon a great deal. The Dyson people aro exceedingly happy to - day and seem to think that the plum now rests in the hollow of his hand. It all comes about in this way: According to tho local politicians a club with considerable influence has started among tho Willis people in the ward a year ago and named the Columbia club. Its membership was large nt first and its club rooms on Marey avenue, near Myrtle, became valuable for keeping together tho members of the faction. A steward named Smith was employed to keep tho house in good condition and cater to the appetites of tho members. Thoro were cigars to holp along the vigor of political discussions and plan making. Things went merrily for a time, but suddenly there was a falling off in the membership as well as an accumulation of bills that it is alleged were unpaid. A few days ago, according to the politicians who make a specialty of outlining the disappointments of their opponents, Louis Basso - ler, a cigar dealer and member of tho organization, placed a lien on tho club for a bill that was due him for cigars. The man who supplied the liquids and who is said to have been disappointed in tho payment for tho samo, is contemplating a similar action. Finally, tho story runs, tho steward has some weeks of salary yet to recoivo. All the circumstances, say the politicians, havo led to a sort of dissolution in the club. Basselcr and his friends aro split up with other factions so much so that very little strength is oxpected from the club which was looked upon as tho chief instrument of President Brunnomer's success in the coming election. This is why tho Dyson people aro happy today. They believe that with dissatisfaction in the Columbia club, victory is a sure thing. FORGED INSPECTOR MC LAUGHLIN'S NAME. His Brother In ba.w Fleeces South Brooklyn Tradesmen. Police Inspector P. II. McLaughlin is making a vigorous search for his brother in law, Thomas Lyons, aged 24, of 162 Fifty - third street, who has been taking a good deal of liberty with the inspector's name of lato, by forging it to checks and lotters on which he secured money from tradesmen in Soutth Brooklyn. For the past three weeks Lyons has been going around to the different stores with checks and ;has had no trouble in having tlem cashed. He has induced tho patrolmen of the Eighteenth precinct to identify him as Inspector McLaughlin's brother in law, and in some cases they have even indorsed tho checks. Lyons visited tho office of John B. King, a real estate dealer at the corner of Third avenue and Fifty - third street, on Novomber 19, and presented a letter purporting to be from the inspector, asking for the loan of S10, with which to pay a bill. The money was given to him and two days later another letter was received containing a check for 330, with instruction to deduct the $10 and send the balance by bearer. The check was drawn on tho Citizens' bank of New York and signed by P. H. McLauglln. Mr. King deposited the oheck and it came back a week later marked "N. Or." Ex - Alderman Robert Blohm, who keeps a hardware store opposite the transfer depot, lost 53 in the same way. L. Emich, a dry goods dealer, was victimized out of $30, and John Schaat and John D. Holstein, liquor dealers, lost 530 each. In each case tho cheeks were roturned ns worthless. Tho victims all say that Lyons was vouched for by the patrolmen on tho different posts. The police aro lookln g for Lyons, and when found he will be prosecuted. Inspector McLaughlin said to - day that ho was surprised when he heard of his relative's action and would show him no mercy. DANCES FOR THE LU.NATICS. Superintendent Sylvcutor Says the Innovation is Beneficial. Tho inmates of the insano asylum at Flathush last night were treated to a dance In the women's dining hall. There were 350 porsons present. The music was furnlshod for the most port by tho patients themselves, the orchestra consisting of two violins, a banjo, a guitar and a piano. Most of the dancers had made on attempt at dressing up for tho occasion, the women wearing bits of ribbon, whilo one of the men even had tho temerity to appear in a dress suit. There was room on the floor for five sots at a time. All the patients enjoyed the occasion hugely. The dance was. on the whole, as orderly and well conducted as any of the swell affairs on the heights and hilL Medical Superintendent Sylvester, who has instituted this innovation, together with entertuinments every week or so for tho diversion of tho patients, says thoir beneficial effect is appreciable. The danc es will be given weekly through the winter. The pntients look forward to them with much pleasure. Ono effect of those occasions Is to make more friendly tho relations between the inmates and the attendants who aro active in managing the dances. SCANDINAVIAN DEMOCRATIC CLUB.
