It la an Able Document Calculated to Do
Prior to the election of officers at the

ning. Secretary Kingsbury read his aa
inial report. It was an admirable doc
ument. It touched on everything per
taiuing in any way to the
progress of the city, its manu
factures, and the advantages it
possessed for manufacturers seeking
a location. It was a voluminous -i.cn
ment, and it elicited the admiration of
even the men who had decided to vote
against Mr. Kingsbury for re-election.
Many of the members pronounced it
the best report in the history of the
organization, and a confidence that its
publication and circulation would
work the city incalculable gdod was
Tbe various committees had nothing
of importance to report. Mr. limes
complimented Treasurer Dickson's re

world by his amorous anil rather in
decent devotion to the tuiitlower; siuce
Sir Arthur Sullivan caricatured him
as Uurnthorne iu the opera "I'atience,"
tho world has regarded hint us a
freak Now that he has put before the
public a play that is remarkable for
the stinging cynicism of its dialogue,
he is regarded as more of n freak than
ever. Liy all tne laws of precedent Oi

thing more etait.liug than attoudiug

By his first dramatic work, "Lady
Win lermere't Fan," which was pio-duc-d
ut the Academy of Music hist
evening, the ii'sthetlc Oscar broke awav
from the environments of froakdom
and appeared as a dramatist and, too,
one of the cleverest of his age.
1TOBY OF TIIF. PLAY.
The story Oscar Wilde telli in "Lsdy
Windermere s ran is about a very
good young wife who discovers that
hsr very good young husband is paying
large sums of money to u woman who
owns a rather shady reputation who is,
iu reality, the handsome mother of the
young wife, having deserted her hus
band and child twenty years before.
The large sums paid to her are the in
nucent contributions of tho young
hushund who, out of devotion to his
wife, who believes her mother to be
dead, would like to rehabilittte
the wayward woman in society, When
iu a moment of innocent rage and hu
miliation over the prosense of the sus
pected woman in her house, tho wife is
preparing to tl v to the protection of a
man who has long pestered her with
his attentions, sho is saved from the
fatal step by the aforesaid woman with
thee. r. , who after twenty years of in
difference suddenly experiences a pang
of maternal sympathy and rescues tbe
still innocent girl from ruin by claim
ing tor herself an undeserved disgrace
It Is in this situation that occurs th"
episode of the fan. Lord Windermere
hasfouul his wife's fan in tho apart
ment of Lord Darlington. The woman
with the reputation confronts the no
bleman as they face each other after
the discovery, and, announcing that
she took Lady Windermere's fan by
mistake wheu she was leaving that
lady's home a little w'nile before, gath
ered to herself all the guilt, and iu the
intensity of the moment wheu all
eyes are fixed upon the woman
with the reputation, Lady Winder
mere who has been concealed behind a
curtain, takes advantage of the oppor
tunity and escapes, and her honor is
saved. Lady Windermere does not
subsequently learn that tbe wouiau
witli the reputation is her mother, as
might be expected she would, but after
a touching scene with her in which she
expresses proper gratitude for the lady's
services the night before, bids her a
tender farewell aud nestles iu the arms
of her husband,
A RAOKNSYBD BOMANC'K.
It is hard to cone ivo of a class of
people who can glitter so incessantly
as the people 1 Mear Wilde has put into
"Lady Windermere's Fan." The in
terest ceuters almost entirely in the
heartless utteran:es of a group of
rakes, and the sentimental interest of
the story is secondary to the
dialogue of those dissipated cyn
ics Tho real romance is rather
hackneyed, and frequently is
tedious, the central situation is fa
miliar, and the movement of the play
at times is far from brisk. Oscar wakes
up his audience wheu he troti on his
roues and sits them about the stage
much after the style of a minstrel per
formance, with an interlocutor in the
middle, whoie duty it is to draw out
shafts of wit from the end men and
these shafts are 9barpely pointed, it
must be admitted.
The performance at the Academy
last evening was given the benefit of
an unuiually good stage setting. The
young, confiding wife, Lady Winde
mere, was admirably portrayed by
Miss Evelyn Campbell. Mies Virginia
Harned.aH the woman with the historic
past, looked the part most effectively,
