Yes, he does, bnt I cannot say who they are.

fin tbe East than here.
Regarding the rumors set afloat about the
officials of the old club wanting to sellout,
president Kmiick said yesterday: "Now. all

The reinforcement of Baltimore seems to have

Barnfe, one of the committee to select new

the Newark club, in that city. There were
present Manager Sarnie, of tbe Baltimore

Manager Trott, of tbe Newark club; President

club to the Brotherhood, but to see ,if negotia
tions for the union with the Association could
Sot be revived. It is understood here that the
two orcanizations would nave united but for
one club, that one being Chicago. No special
reason was assigned, but it is apparent that the
Club in tbat city is depending -chiefly upon the
Association for tbe players, and number have
already been signed.
IShouId tbe Brotherhood and the Association
combine, Chicago would necessarily bave to
relinquish lier bold onthe players signed from
the latter organization, and foivthat reason
she made a vigorous fight against the plan.

One of the most amusing incidents of the
day was the reading of a tabulated statement
of the New York clnb's business during last

ESMERALDA HICELY ENACTED.
The Sewickley Valley CInb In Mrs. Burnett's
Romantic Flay Pittaborgers and Alle
cbpnlana In Attendance.
The Sewickley Valley Club could hardly
afford room for its friends in its hall at
Sewickley last night, when "Esmeralda,"
the romantic drama by Mrs. Hodgson Bur
nett and "W. H. Gillette, was given in ex
cellent style. It was the largest audience
the dramatic performances of the club has
attracted this season, and included a great
many Pittsburg and Allegheny society
Beiore the curtain rose for the first time,
Mr. O. S. Bichardson appeared upon the
stage and asked the indulgence of the audi
ence for Mr. Booth, to whom the part of
Josiah Rodgers was intrusted, andt whose
voice had threatened to desert him. The
foil cast of "Esmeralda" was as follows:
Josiah Sodgert, a North Carolina farmer.
Mr. Booth; Lydia nn, his wife, Mrs. Burrows;
Ssmeralda, Miss Whiting; Dave Hardy, a
young North Carolinian, Mr. Carpenter; JSxla
brook, a man of leisure, Mr. Townley; Jack
Desmond, a young American artist in Paris,
Mr. Nevin; Nora Dermond, Jack't sister, Mrs.
Adair; Kale Desmond, Jack's sister. Miss An
derson; Marquis Montessin, an adventurer,
Mr. Bichardson: George Drew, an American
speculator. Mr. Starr.
In the first act the fears concerning Mr.
Booth's voice were happily proven un
founded, and beyond a certain degree of
hoarseness that clever actor's voice was
about what, a North Carolina fanner like
Josiah Bodgers would be content to call his
own. Mr. Booth's make-up was astonish
ingly good, and he showed real art in sim
ulating that physical feebleness which so
nicely reflects the moral weakness oi the
husband" and slave of Lydia Ann. Inter
esting as the whole story of "Esmeralda" is
the character o( Josiah stands out with great
distinctness. It is the most truthful picture
of human character in the play. The pathos
of it is deep and true.
Very seldom indeed, have we seen upon
tb,e amateur stage snch an artistic perform
ance as Mr. Booth's last night. In the
pathetic finale of the first act, where tbe
old farmer vainly protests against giving
np his humble home, Mr. Booth was par
ticularly powerful. The humor which pro
vides the sunlight for the picture lost
nothing in Mr. Booth's hands. In such a
brief review as this it is not possible to
identify and commend the many points in
which Mr. Booth's mastery of the character
was shown. All his work testified to an
industrious study of the character.
The harsh and offensive lines upon which
the character of Lydia Ann is planned
hardly suited Mrs. Burrows, to whom the
part fell. She acted it, however, with great
spirit and intelligence. For once Mrs. Bur
rows' pleasant and musical voice was a draw
back to her. The cruelty and sting of the
selfish woman's words were weakened by the
amiable personality of the actress.
In the third act Mrs. Burrows achieved a
fair measure of vindictiveness. The title role
is not a large part, but it affords 'considera
ble opportunity for a gentle pathos, and one
situation at least in which it is powerfully
dominant In this character Miss Whiting
was very much at home, and her simple and
unaffected acting culminating In the tour de
force with which the third act closes
brought otit the grace of Esmeralda, in a
very pretty way. Miss Whiting made a very
Mrs. Adair was a very vivacious and
charming Nora Desmond, and Miss Ander
son as the other sister of the amiable Jack
Desmond was also graceln). Mr. Carpen
ter showed plainly very careful preparation
for his portrayal oi the picturesque, Dave.
Tbe other characters were really admirably
filled, Mr. O. S. Bichardson making a
dreadfully wicked and good looking French
count, and Mr. Bobert Kevin, Jr., was
perfectly unrecognizable as the .bearded
The exquisite taste which characterized
the arrangement of the mise-en-scene, and
the realistic decorations of the studio scene,
which was filled with valuable bric-a-brac,
are due to tbe generous help and hard work
of Mrs, Halsey Williams, Mrs. D. Leet
Wilson and Miss Dickson. The next play
will be given on January 21.
