The captain of one rather old and
slow steamer of years ago, finding
that he would have to bo a long time
In China before he received a full
cargo of tea and would have probably
to return In ballast, began, to every
one's astonishment, to say that, ow
ing to the repairs that had been done
to his engines, ho hoped to make a
racing passage back to England
Then, still more to the astonishment
of the captains of the fast steamers
and the world at large, no com
menced to back himself to make the
fastest passage home.
In such very considerable sums of
money did he wager that people bo
gan to think there was something In
it, and the merchants sent their tea
almost entirely to his ship, arguing
that as the captain stood to lose 250
the repairs to his steamer's engines
had probably put him In a position
to bet almost on a certainty.
Of course the steamer, whose great
est speed was eight knots an hour,
arrived in England weeks after tho
othors, and tho captain lost 250,
hut instead of having to Ho in China
waiting his chance of cargo coming
in from tho Interior, a 'probable de
lay of weeks, ho had cleared in a
few days after his bets becamo known
to tho public with a full ship, thus
recouping to his owners, who, of
course, paid his betting losses, a con
sldorable number of thousands of
pounds profit. Blackwood's Mngtt

Inasmuch as Mr. Mose Reis and
Mr. Julius Calm aro posing as bene
factors to the one night stands, they
represent in their announcement
that tholr theatres will hereafter
play attractions booked by Messrs
Kluw & Erlanger nnd others,
might as well ho made clear that
this Is merely their statement
Neither Klaw & Erlanger nor any
of -tho managers nllillated with them
will piny any of their attractions in
any theatres booked by Mose Rels
or Julius Calm. It also Is just as
well to let tho public kuow that
these men In their pretenses tho
they are for an "open door" in this
matter are guilty of rank and
traitorous hypocrisy. Tho fact Is
that each of them has received
money to sell out these theatres
Wo mean exactly this: That they
have for years been receiving mon
ey fo represent certain theatres In
tho United States; that for a mon
eyed consideration they have opened
the doors of these theatres to the
Shubert attractions, thereby closing
them to all the attractions of Chas
Frohman, Klaw & Erlanger, Joseph
Brooks, Charles B. Dillingham, H
B. Harris, Henry W. Savago, Cohan

received In consideration for this
