And dance and fan. According to Marc Taw of the theatrical firm of Klaw Erlanger. Musical attractions will predominate this season. In Dis cussing the season s Outlook and his own firm s plans yesterday or. Klaw said As for ourselves we will be largely engaged As we have been during the past two or three seasons in presenting musical extravaganzas in an elaborate form and with Large companies. Our efforts in this direction have been influenced entirely by what we thought was the Public taste. American taste like the French has tended very much toward music and tongan dance with plenty of glitter and color and we do not see any immediate Prospect of a change. This is a very Good form of entertainment to Deal in because it caters especially to the Eye which is the most tyrannical of All Uio senses it is the most exacting in its demands and tires the quickest. Present to an audience the most Beautiful scene that Ever was painted and if Thero is a stage wait of ten seconds the Eye will not occupy the time in taking in Tho scene but the beholder will quickly lie Back in his seat and say impatiently Well that s All right what for this reason a variety and quickness of movement Aro necessary at All times to keep up the Pace. We have five organizations of this Char Acter bidding for patronage. First is one round of which will resume its season at Tho Knickerbocker theatre on monday evening aug. 23. It numbers nearly 100 people incl Mug Walter Jones the Rogers Brothers Richard Carle Charles b. Kurko h. Tredennick Robert mans Lold and Ida Brooks Marie Celeste Clara and Edith Sinclair. At the conclusion of its new York run it will be been at the hos top museum where it Opena sept. 0 for a run. The strange adventures of Jack and the with a company of mighty Odd players begins its second season in the Columbia theatre Chicago on sept. 0. This organization after its run at the Casino Lutt year went on the Road and when the season closed bore the distinction i be Lieve of having played to the largest Busi Ness of any organization of Tho kind travel ins in the. Country. Its season in Chicago is limited to four weeks after which it will be seen in the principal of Tho and u . In the company will be found Madge Lessing Harry Kelly Carrie Perkins allude Hubert Wollke Walter Allen Niile Lynch a dozen or More Clever people. " in Gay new York will open the new Metropolis theatre in the annexed District. The play has been overhauled during the summer by messes. Mcclellan and Kerker in the Way of music and lyrics so that it be brought up to Dato and will be presented by an organization of Over seventy five people headed by Eddie Foy with this exception the cast will remain substantially As last season. Whirl of the. Town will open in Philadelphia at the conclusion of us Ca sino run. Tho latter part of september. It is Ono or the biggest successes of the later co Sleno reviews and Avo. Look Tor a prosperous year for it on Tho Road. Palmer Cox s brownies goes out for Tho fourth Beason under the personal supervision of Tho famous Brownie Man himself who will accompany Tho organization on its entire tour. It begins its Road trip in Toronto Canada the latter part of this month. We have not adhered continued or. Klaw to extravaganzas this year from the fact that the country threat ens to become inundated with musical attractions of this sort and we have departed to the extent of acquiring the rights to us least to loan nolo productions from which to Hopo to reap substantial Reward. Ont of these is a Ward of written by Franklin Fyles in conjunction with Eugeno Presbrey. It is a romantic drama of the highest Type and will be a very elaborate Uffner no far As production goes. It deals with Louisiana in the Early Days of this Century when that territory was in Quick succession flying the nags of Spain France and the United states. A picturesque Llauro in this play will be Tho charac Ter of Jean latino a famous Gulf pirate a lured very act Cly ill Tho affairs of Louisiana at that t me. To have engaged Maurice Barrymore for this role. The com Pany will number about forty people which is an unusually Large organization for a at Lely dramatic production. We Juno also put chased from Clay m. Greene his comedy a wandering min Strel which will nest Sec Tho Light in the Park theatre Boston. Sept. 20. In this play Van Blene. The cellist who received considerable attention Here last fall will be seen in a character which to think eminently fitted to his abilities both As an actor and a musician. These organizations will mean Tho employment of Between five and six Hundred people and for their Sakes As Well As our own we Trust they nay be successful. The Outlook in the country certainly seems prosperous from All we can read and hear and we open our Campaign of 1887-8 with unusual vigor and hopeful an Independent theatre. Preparations about completed for the production in new York of literary play. Some weeks age rumours were prevalent concerning an Independent theatre in new Tork. These rumours however were so elaborated and exaggerated that the Independent theatre scheme Camo to be regarded a one of those air castles which Are built Dur ing Tho Dull season and few believed that it wed Over assume actual existence. Charles b. Cochran Tho promoter of Tho Enterprise now states that with the exception of a few minor details preparations have been completed for Tho presentation at a series of matinees of several Ibsen and other literary plays. Two leading theatres Aro under consideration and the season will be begun at Ono of these with Ibsen s John Gabriel translated into English by Willmm Archer. Will be followed by the norwegian poet s wild and Hedda it is the intention of the promoters of the Independent theatre to secure new plays if possible and Tho classics of Ibsen Suder Mann and Maeterlinck will be when new material is not forthcoming. Al though several news plays have been read but one is deemed worthy of this is a psychological Dharna by a Youngf parisian artist who prefers to be known on the play Bills As pol a translation has been made by miss Mabel Beardsley through whose Luces or. Coch Rau scoured the play for this country and it will probably be Given in december under the title of Al if the season proves As successful As is looked for by those interested an Effort will be made to revive some of the old com Edies of Contrevo Beaumont and Fletcher. Tho Stago will be under the direction of e. J. Henley and it in hoped to secure the co operation of Tho new York managers to the extent of permitting the players that Thoy have under contract to appear at the Independent theatre matinees. Or. Cochran has approached several managers upon the subject and thus far has met with no refusal. As Tor the players themselves nil that have been spoken to on the mat Ter Havo expressed enthusiasm at the prospects of playing great parts. Sufficient Money has been subscribed to permit or. Cochran to make at least three or four productions and Dover mine the ques Tion is to whether or not there is a now York Public interested in Tho purely liter Ary drama and desirous of seeing it presented on the stage. Cory Pees for Tielve on the Paris Ted Ity Annex Clr Cun big flu re car Langr at once. Twelve Cory Pees from London brought Over for the front line of which is to be produced at the Academy of Muslo next week arrived yesterday in the second Cabin of the Paris.

Going up to her offered his assistance. Then she astonished him Wethi the information that she was a Chicago girl and waa not a dancer she would not to one of the front line in and it was Only by accidental alphabetical arrangement that Shu found herself mixed up with his party.

Tho next Wagner festival will occur in Tho close of the grand opera season in this City was followed by an exodus of stars to Bayreuth. There to absorb Wagner in Tho Camp of the enthusiasts surrounded by the atmosphere of cycles and motifs. Tho intelligence comes from Bayreuth. That this year s festival was supported mainly by americans and English with the former constituting a majority of the foreigners. Indeed Anton so Bdl remarked that. In look ing Over a Bayreuth audience he might easily have imagined that he was conducting in the metropolitan opera House there wore so Many familiar faces to be seen. The Bayreuth festival closes on thurs Day with the one Hundredth perform Ance of the receipts exceed the Drift toward in Over. Tho Drift of the Public taste toward wag Ner has impelled Many singers Whoso reputations have Beon acquired in Tho italian school to the study of the German master. Maurice Grau says that the proportion of Wagner nights which were in a majority on the program to of the last season will be maintained in the next. Tam Narno who is Ono of Tho stars most unlikely to turn to Wagner is reported to have been engaged for the next covent Garden season As a Concession to the old fashioned opera ours who remain Loyal to . His engagement is interpreted to mean that Jean do Ileczko will devote himself almost entirely to wag Nerlan roles. The new York season 6f which will begin in november Yel very hazy As to detail. Whether another season there can be made profitable in View of Tho american demand for a monopoly of All the great singers.

If he Quail fled at the Al Rel Range and failed at the second would not be compelled to go Back to the 500 Yard Range and commence All Over again but could continue shooting at the Gou Yard Range until he made Tho required score. The result of the present Tom. Us illustrated on the practice Day is that the my Yard Range is crowded with scores of shooters awaiting the nor turn to shoot Bome of whom cannot be accommodated. On the other hand there Are borne who claim that Gen Kirby s system will ultimately prove an advantage in prec a dorm men who in former years Purpo Elv threw Nway their shots at 000 Yards in order that they might better their scores thus giving More of an Opportunity for practice to less skilled marksmen.
