OLCOTT'S NEW PLAY.
Witnessed by on Appreciative Audicucs
at tho Academy.)" .
Chauiicey' Olcott was greeted last
night at the Academy of Mifslc In the
new comedy drama, "The Irish Artist,"
by a large and appreciative audience.
The plot of the drama Is similar to
that of most Irish dramas on' the stage
The character, Maurice Cronln, as
sumed by Olcott, that of a young, am
bitious artist and successful from a
professional standpoint, yet struggling
financially, which hinders the progress
f his love affairs with Miss- Katie Ma-
hone until a chance discovery proves
him to be the legitimate Bon of Sir Rob-
rt Dean, a well-to-do gentleman of the
Hinge, and not the son of Cormac
Cronln, a farmer, with whom he has
ved as son for many years, is probable
enough; still the characters. Edmund
Dean, his brother, and Maggie Cronln,
his supposed Bister, who has been
wronged by Edmund, are quite im
probable and certainly bo very unusual
n Ireland as to make their presence in
most Irish dramas a matter for amaze
ment. Aside from this the show Is an excel
lent one, the Singing of his own songs
by Mr.-'Olcott and of Moore's "Believe
Me of All Those Endearing Young
.'harms," was a treat. .One bit of act
ing deserves special mention, viz., the
courting scene between Jerry Sweeney
and Widow Blake. The scenery is
first-class and the costumes, which are
said to be historically correct, ure ele
gant. IN Till: TENDERLOIN.
It Is a Melodrama That Will Not Elevate
"In The Tendeloln" will never be re
sponsible fur elevating the Btage even
n the slightest degree, but as. a moving
let ure of the senrney side of life In
New York it Is probable that It has
never been surpassed.
Tho scenes In Phil Daly's gambling
house, Tom Davis' green goods house

To add to the reullnm of the play
Tom Gould and George Appo, the man
who tol-d the Lexow committee all about
the green goods business in New York

members of the cast. They are not
ornaments to the profession. Appo is a
small, one-eyed man who looks much
younger 'than, he is. He. has a thin
piping voice and a difficulty in dlapos-

The social of the Keystone Social
club at Company H armory last night
was one of the mopt brilliant social
events of this season in the North End.
The large drill room was decorated in
a pretty manner with evergreens and

most artistically screened the windows
from view and palms and plants were
banked on the front of the stage.
From the curb stone to the build-Ins

st't of gatea was Arranged in a floral
arch. " These gates were guarded by
little pickaninnies and swung open as
the guc-sts approached. Refreshments
were served duiilng ' the evening.

THE CASHIER PAID INTEREST
One of the Daring Methods by Which
Mckean Stole $05,000.
By the United Press.
Nashua, N. H., Dec. 27. Bank Ex
aminer C. M. Dorr will complete his In
vestigation of the accounts of Frank A.
McKean, the defaulting cashier of the
Indean Head National bank,--,tonlght.
The examination of the books have re
vealed shrewd and daring methods on
the part of the embezzler In robbing
his friends and the bank, and It is now
readily understood how he secured $ii5,
000 before any suspleons were aroused.
One of the principle methods by which
McKean obtained money was through
nn old cetifloate book which the bank
oflkials suppostd was filed away in the
vaults. The bank pays no interest
011 deposits, but some years ago the di
rectors planned to Issue interest bear
ing certificates of deposit. Soon after
they gave up. the plan and the certifi
cate book was put away in the vault.
McKean abstracted It and Issued cer
tificates indiscriminately, paying the
Interest from the bank's funds. One
man in Nahua has a certificate of this
kind for $10,000, and has been paid 5
per cent. Interest by McKean. The de
faulter kept a careful account of these
certificates and altered the books to
cover up the stealings that were neces
sary to pay interest.

Uunning Into the City.
Scranton was snowbound yesterday
and reports from every town between
here nnd Philadelphia indicate that
along thut line the storm has been the
severest. From 9 o'clock Wednesday
night until S o'clock last night street
car traffic was at a standstill, not a
wheel turning, except on the snow
plows. Eighteen Inche3 of snow had
fallen and burled the tracks, and even
on the steam railroads traffic was Im
peded. Up and down the coal fields
not a colliery was In operation, and pas
senger trains were delayed several
hours In the early part of the day.
Here Ih the city what Interested, the
Deunle most was the resumption of
street car travel. The snow had done
no damage, the storm not being ac
companied by any wind, except one
that just kept the snow 'drifting back
on the street car tracks as fast as It was
being shoveled away. On this account
the work of clearing the tracks was
slow. General Manager Beetem was
out nil night directing every man in
tho employ of the Traction company.
On the Peckvllle line two cars were
stalled during the night on the upper
end of the line, and" two were snow
bound nt Weston switch, near, the end
of the Providence line. On the South
Side line every car was snowed In, one
on Cedar avenue across the bridge,
one on Mattes street, one in Greenwood
and two in Mooslc. Passengers had to
walk after 9 o'clock, as there was not a
car In the city running.
Curs Moving in Providence.
The first sign of activity occurred at
8 o'clock last evening when the cars
on the Providence line began to make
their regular time as far as eston
switch. About the same time travel
opened on the Green Ridge People's line
and three cars made trips between
Lackawanna avnetie nnd Delaware
street. On the Hyde Park side the
main line was opened aB far as Hamp
ton street, and cars were running last
night. But no attempt had been made
to go to Taylor, or out Luzerne, Wash
burn, or Swetland streets. Not a car
was run on Laurel 11111 park, Nay Auj;
Falls, either of the suburban lines, or
on the South Side. A force of anen,
however, was sent nut last night on
these lines with shovels nnd they are
clearing the tracks. It Is expected that
today tte cars will be running on all
lines, unless another fall of snow
should set In.
Dining tills storm the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western Railroad
company has had less trouble with th
Poeono mountain than on any former
occasion where the fall has been as deep.
Passenger trains from Now York yes

hour hute and in the afternoon they
were run nil 11 g on time. On the northern
division the greatest trouble was re
ported at Great Bend, but oil the
Bloomsburg the 'trains were delayed
three and four 'hours. The Delaware
and Hudson trains running north were
not delayed by the storm, but they
were laite coming from Wllkes-Barre.
because the Lehigh Valley trains from
the east and south were nil behind

connections, which caused the Dela

came up from Philadelphia yesterday
