THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS. SUNDAY. APRIL TL 1891.
NEW OPERA HOUSE.
The Plans Prepared and Subscrip-
tions to the Stock Being
A Theater on the Ground Floor for Next
Season-Notes About People and
That Galveston will have a now and
modern opera house for the accommoda-
tion of the playgoing people by the open-
ing of the next dramatic season is now
regarded an an assured fact. Some time
ego The News published an interview with
Manager Henry Green wall, in which that
gentlemen stated that he was done with
the present structure that has served as
a place of aimusement for Galvestonians
so long. He said then that overtures to the
owner of the property to renovate, modern-
ize and render it safe as a theater had
not met with satisfactory response, and
he had abadoned all idea of seeking a re-
newal of his iea.se, which will expire next
uprlng, and had turned his attention to
the formation of a stock company for 'the
erection of a suitable building here to
provide a theater in keeping with the re-
quirements and sentiments of the people,
and one which people may attend without
being in constant fear of a catastrophe
from overcrowding and lack of facilities
for exit In cases of panic or lire.
Mr. Greenwall has 'had plans prepared
for a modern theater, and a f™nt \^ew
of the proposed structure in on exhibition
In the show window of M. C. Michael, on
Tremont street. Mr. Albert Wels has cus-
tody of the detailed drawings and specifi-
cations of the new house, which is to oe
located on Postotfice street, between twen-
ty-first and Twentieth, on the site of the
dee house now standing there. The plans
are for a three-story structure, having
the theater and 'three stores on the ground
floor, and the upper portion arranged for a
hotel on the European plan, which will
have fifty rooms, each with a south front.
The plans for the theater portion ol the
house contemplate a place of amusement
•with all the most modern improvements
and equipment, and one which will be a
credit to Galveston. Mr. Greenwall s prop-
osition was to form a stock eompany to
erect the building at a cost of *£W,000,
of which he proposes to contribute $25,000,
and associate with himself fifteen stock-
holders at $.0000 each to fill up the remain-
ing $75,000 of the proposed amount. On
Monday last he prepared his subscription
list for this «tock and in the course or
the day had enrolled the following named
subscribers for $5000 each: Leon Blum, R.
B. Haw ley, Marx & Blum, M. Lasker,
C. H. Moore. J. C. League, George and
John Scaly, William Parr, $5000; Adrnie &
Lobit, $5000; Barnes & Pailiser, $5000; C. II.
iLee, $5000; 'total, $55,000. This, with Mr.
Greenwall's subscription of $25,000, makes
$8u,000 of the required $100,000.
"I have no doubt of getting the balance
without the least trouble," said Mr. Green-
wall to a News reporter. "The people here
want a new and modern house and 1 am
going to give it to them. Besides the sub-
scribers already on the list, I have prom-
isee from Mr. W. P. Ladd. the An'he'user-
Busch company, and others, which assure
me tihat 1 will have no trouble to raise the
Mr. Green wail 'left Thursday for Fort
Worth, Waco and other cities. At Waco
Mr. Sam Sanger is erecting a new opera
house to cost $75,000. and at Gainesville a
$60,000 house is going up, and Paris is also
building a new place of amusement. Sher-
man is remodeling her place, and other
cities are getting in line.
"With all these places moving it does
look," said Mr. Greenwall, "as though Gal-
veston ought to get in line."
Mr. Greenwall returned here yesterday,
acrampwnied by Mr. Frank Cox, the archi-
tect who thaa prepared the plans for the
now 'bulkilng, and after « conference with
his associates here instructions were given
to Mr. Cox to proceed at once in the prep-
aration of the working plans. Work will
be commenced on the new house by May
1G, and it is expected it will be completed
and ready for opening -by November 15.
It will ha/ve a capacity of 1500, the theater
being on the ground floor, with balcony,
gallery and eight boxes, all in the Moorish
style of architecture. The decorations and
Interior trimmings will tye In gold, White
and old Ivory. A large ldbby will open
upon a carpeted foyer and everything will
be modern and metropolitan.
According to present arrangements this
weeks ends the highly successful season of
the exhibition of Suchorowsky's master-
piece in art, "Nana," which has attracted
more people to the opera house during the
past week than any picture ever exhibited.
It is not so much a painting that the visit-
or appears to see as a living, breathing wo-
man, so natural in poscv so delicate and
transparent, the flesh tints of the softly
rounded limbs and form, and so vivid and
expressive the smiling features. The eyes
especially seem to sparkle with exubeiunt
life. The more the picture Is gazed upon
the more does this feeling grow and the
greater becomes the admiration of the art-
ist's powers, which have been able to give
to a canvas such a deceptive solidity and
relief. This power is particularly notlceu-
ble in the face, painted, as has been said,
directly facing the spectator, In strong
light and without the slightest turning in
profile to lessen the technical difficulty of
treatment. The features absolutely stand
out from the canvas. The modeling and re
lief of the extended ar.m is also extraordl
nary. Tri his treatment of the accessor lea
the artist is no less successful. The skin
upon which "Nana" rests, the heavy
stamped velvet curtain which descends to
the left of her couch, the silk and lace
draperies on the couch itself, the table
Covering an.d the articles upon the table
are triumphs of technique. The candela.bra
and the bright metal work upon th.e table
are particularly noticeable, the high lights
shining with the metallic luster of gold it-
self. The environment, too, is so harmon-
ious that it is impossible to say In which
the artist has excelled—in the central ani-
mate figure or the Inanimate surroundings.
There is so much realism in the picture
that the slightest change in the position
of the spectator brings out new shades of
GREENW'A LL'S DATES.
(Manager Henry Greenwall will open his
next season at the Grand opera house at
New Orleans September 2, 1894, with. Nellie
MeHenry In a new play, with a new com-
pany. Then will follow, September 9, the
Calhoun comic opera company. This com-
pany will remain four we*ks, playing a
most attractive repertoire. After the Cal
houn opera company will come Thos. W.
Keene, Herrmann the Great, Thos. Q. Sea
brooke in "Isle of Chanrpagne," and "Ta-
basco," Mrs. Jame3 -Brown Potter and
Kyrle Bellow in new plays, Charles H.
Yale's "Devil's ^Auction," Marie Wain-
right in a new play, Richard .Mansfield in
repertoire, Nat C. Goodwin in "In ,Miz-
zoura," Wilson Barrett in repertoire, Stuart
Ro^bson in "The Henrietta," the "Wang"
company, Lewis Morrison in "Faust," .Rob-
ert Mantel in repertoire. Abbey & Grau's
spectacle, ^America," and possibly Henry
Irving and Sarah Bernhardt.
How much of this attractive dramatic
menu will be given to Texas is not known
now. but a fervent hope , springs in the
breast of every playgoer that the bookings
for 1894-96 will be made with more regard
to the good taste and cultivation of the
people than was shown in the season just
closed, when sucih things as "La Belle Cre-
ole" and "After Dark," by a company of
barnstormers, were set out for their delec-
A number of the friends of Mr. Ernest
Fulton, who has held the position of treas-
urer of the Tremont opera house during the
past season, held an informal meeting sev-
eral days ago and decided that they would
tender him a complimentary benefit as a
token of appreciation of his services to the
public during the past winter.
Mr. Fultorrs acceptance of the same was
received and work was commenced at once.
It was decided to procure H. J. Byron's
comedy, "Our Boys," for Mr. Fulton's ben-
efit, the performance to be given on the
night of May 8. The cast will be corn-
posed of a number of the most popuiar
amateur actor* gf the city, and tha euttr®
production will Ijp under ihf stage direction
of Mr Be" Mason, who ha* already com-
menced tlx' work of rehearsals.

flpeaklnK t° a Cleveland Flalndealer re-
porter Mile. Khea said:
"Well, T always like the latent, .fust now
It Is the 'New MuKdalen,' a charming play.
Next year il will be 'Elizabeth and bliakes-
pea re,' 1 suppose."
"That is a new play, then?'
"Not new in the sense of having been
.recently written, for It Is an old play, but
new In America, and I count on great
things from It,"
"What is the play? ^
"It is a charming story of Rhakcspean s
time, representing the great poet aim the
people of his time, Elizabeth, b alstaff and
ev^n Hamlet, for it deals with the play
Shakespeare is just producing and tin1 con-
troversies with his actors. We have se-
cured Mr. lllght, wbo made such a great
success with 'Jane' as Falst.ift, and Mr.
Hart here is to play Shakespeare And
there Is a curious thing about that. Jlr.
Hart's name Is William Shakespeare Hart,
and the last descendant of Shakespeare
known was William llart Shakespeare. Mr.
Hart Is of course too modest to claim de-
scent from the Immortal poet, but lie Is a
native of England, and we are at sure
that when his seneologlcal tree is discov-
ered we will find he Is a lineal descendant
of the great bard.
"And now I will tell you a great secret.
I am also to have a little one-act play In
which I am to take the part of Bonaparte.
It Is not the great Napoleon, but petite
corporal,' the younger Na|>o,eon. 1 am to
represent. Now (hat is a secret, but
strangely enough when a girl I was alwa> s
called the little corporal. My face was
thinner tihan now, and being born In Bruj-
Bels, so near to Waterloo, the resemblance
earned me the title."

KEENE AND THE WEST.
The Chicago Herald says: Thomas W.
Keene, a person who romps through cer-
tain Shakespearean roles with about as
much finesse and appreciation as the tra-
ditional bull exhibits in demolishing a china
closet, has recently expressed himself of
certain opinions, which, to say the least of
it, are very funny, almost as amusing, in-
deed, as his stage performances. 1 llnd,
he savs. "that the soutih, with true con-
servatism, stands by the legitimate better
than any other section of the country. 1 hey
read and understand Shakespeare there. In
the north and new west there Is too much
bustle, hurry and scurry after wealth to
cultivate general scholarship, and people go
to the theater merely to be amused. ir it
is true that the people of the north and
west attend the theater merely
amused'which''is altogether likely, as the
theater could have no higher or better pur-
pose—Mr. Keene ought to play to crowded
houses. His Shakespearean cult Is amus-
ing enough to entertain a lot of wooden In-
dians, but having been seen so often, his
tragic specialties have become a trifle stale.
Perhaps it would be well for him to change
his "act" and introduce a song and dance,
or something of that sort. Anything at all
different would be an Immense improvement
upon his present unrelieved attack upon
A. M. PAT/MKR AND THE LAMBS.
The New York Tribune of Monday last
says: Most of the lambs, owing to th
warm sunshine yesterday, were lovable and
frisky. They browsed around -their com
fortable Bohemia at No. 26 West Twenty
first street wltJh both eyes fu'U of hope
But a .story whicth somehow got afloat
caused them pain. It was that Sydney
Rosenfeld, the playwright, recently pro
posed the name of A. M. Palmer, lh»
theatrical manager, for membership in the
Lambs club, and that at the meeting on
Fridav of the council it was suddenly
withdrawn by Mr. Rosenfeld because of
tine certainty that dt would be black-
baMr.Cl*Palmer said to a Tribune reporter
'That story is all rot. A lie parading in
as decollette a costume as that lie does
would be hooted off a gayety stage in
Mashonaland. Sydney Rosenfeld sent me
letter the other day asking permission
to present mv name for membership in
■the Lambs' club. I at once wrote him
that 1 was going to Europe and did not
wish him to propose my name now. He
thereupon withdrew my name. Tihat a all
there is to It."
President Greene of the Ivamtos was away
Yesterday, but Glen Macdonough, who is
prominently connected with it. said: "That
story is all wrong. Mr. Palmer would
probably have been elected if he had not
voluntarily withdrawn. He has no enemy
in the club that we know of."
MR. TROPHY'S BENEFIT.
The Electric minstrels will tender Mr,
Pete Brophy, one of the leading members
of that organization, a benefit performance

nie streets. The company will have a re-
hearsal at the hal'l at 2.30 tihis afternoon,
and the performance to-morrow night
promises to be fully up to <the high stand-
ard of the former work done by these
minstrels. The performance will be elab-
orately staged and t'he programme will be
unusually interesting and entertaining.

The "Irving' gait" has been mentioned di-
rectly and incidentally by a great many
newspaper writers, but none of them has
described it so picturesquely as a Kansas
journalist, who, in criticising a perform-
ance by an actor well known in New York,
says: "He apes Irving and has a walk that
reminds one of a rooster stepping through
hot mush." While this same critic is will-
ing to admit that Frederick Paulding Is a
very good actor, in spite of his style of
perambulation, he asserts that Mr. Pauld-
ing's co-star, Miss Maida Craigen, "does
not look like an actress; she lookc* like a
woman and acts like one."
At a matinee at the Grand theater in St.
Louis not long ago the only seats left were
two in the last row. They are of little
value for two people who are together, for
the reason that a post over a foot square
stands between them. The customer was a
young man. accompanied by his bride, from
some place in the country. They took the
tickets and went into the theater. When
the Usher directed the youtih and his com-
panion to his purchase the man looked at
them and then at his wife. "Mary," he
said, "would you sit so far apart from me
in order to see this show?" Mary said that
she wouldn't and the young couple got on a
car and went out to Lafayette park, where
they had a seat all to themselves.

God. iHis cures are beyond question, and
the excitement he has created in southwest
Texas is beyond beljef. Over 1000 pejple
stand in line every day awaiting their turn
for consultation with the saint, for many
of the Mexicans fully believe he is no less a
person than Saint Peter.
What manner of man is th4s that is able

for years have Raffled the skill of experi-
At first glance Dhe causal observer would
say: "He is a typical Mexican." Yes, at
first glance, he Is. But a closer acquaint
ance with the man will dispel the illusion
that he is of the ordinary type.
He Is of medium height, of slight frame
and erect of carriage. White hair and white
whiskers would give him a venerable ap-
pearance but IV»r a terribly disfigured coun-
tenance. Thereby bangs hiw story. His
name is Pedro Jaramillo, but he calls him-
self Don Pedro. The Mexicans call him Don
Pedpi'to, the diminutive of Don Pedro. I
will not talk about himself, but from Bias
Vela, his traveling companion, the follow-
ing meagre details of his story have been
liias Vela says that Don Pedrito was born
in lsui, and is therefore 9o years of age. He
was born in Guadajara, Mexico. Bias Vela
is only about 45 years old, so he knows
nothing of Pedrito's early ivfe. He says
that when middle-aged Don Pedrito was
kicked in the face by a horse and severely
injured. His nose was broken and he was
hurt otherwise, so death was near at hand.
A strange woman appeared upon the scene
wiiio nursed -him back to life. When fully
recovered he asked her what he should pay
for the services rendered. She replied that
he could pay her nothing, but that he must
go out into the world healing the sick
with a power that he would find he now

soon spread. The Mexicans became terribly

for m'iles. The Mexican local oiflcials be-
came jealous of his power and alarmed at
the crowds that collected to worship him.
They ordered him put in jail. He was
finally released on. the promise that he
would leave Mexico.
Accompanied by his faithful shadow, Bias
Vela, Jaramillo crossed the Rio Grande and
located In the sparwely settled district of
Starr county. There they have liveil for
ten years. Jaramillo was an enigma to his
neighbors. No one knew how he lived. -He

Three weeks agV) he came to San Antonio,
Tex., with Bias Vela. THiey secured per
mission to lodge In a little shack in th_
Grandjean homestead in the Mexican quar-
ter of the city. This place has been known
to the natives for over 100 years. His rep
utatJion had preceded him and he found c.
handful of believers waiting for treatment.
These he relieved. Tihe news spread. The
yard of t.he old place soon became a won-
The fence about it for a half-mile was
used for a hitching p>ost for all manner of
horses attached to a curious array of ve-
hicles. 10 very tiling could be seen there from
tihe two-wheeled native Mexican cart to the
stylish turnout attended by a coachman in
livery, ilnside the yard a vast throng strug-
gled for an interview with the Don. The
rich and the poor, silk dresses were crushed
nga.inst the greasy blankets of the natives.
There was no distinction of class or race.
The old man at first sat in his litil
cabin, into which the patients were ad-
mitted one by one. This took too much
time. He came outside and a ca'nvas was
stretched to keep the sun from Ills venera-
ble head. A rope was stretched from this
canvas shed around the fence and about
ten feet from it for a distance of 2000 feet
Patients are required to enter this chut
from the lower end and gradually move
up as the cases are disposed of. This
chute holds about 500 people, and it is
always full. As fast as the patients are
disposed of at the other end there ar
many to take their places. The crowd
surges forward, some on crutches, others
supported on either side by friends. Rheu-
matics, consumptives, paralytics, all are
there. It is a wonderful and piteous sight
As soon as it is dark Don Pedrito and
Bias Vela climb into a two-seated wagon
and another old Mexican drives them about
the city. They call at places from where
requests have been sent for assistance.
The old man keeps traveling until nearly
daybreak. He then goes back to his cabin,
sleeps about two hours, and as the first
sign of day appears in the east comes out
to where 200 or 300 people are already in
line waiting to speak to him. He work
twenty hours out of the twenty-four.
As to his methods and his prescriptions
His medicines are water in the form of
baths and drinks, hot or cold as the case
may be, and the common fruits of the
earth, such as oranges, lemons, potatoes
and tomatoes. No two cases are treated
alike, even of the same disease.
The patient in search of relief stands
before Don, who is apparently oblivious of
all surroundings. The Don is deaf, and
the patient tells his tale of woe to Bias
Vela who stands near. Bias Vela tells :t
to the old man in Spanish, putting his
mouth close to the ear of the don. Don
Pedrito then writes on a slip of paper in
Spanish some such prescription as this:
"Drink seven cups of cold water on Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday mornings until
seven are taken."
The patient Is given this, and if he cares
to donate a half dollar or 25 cents to Bias
Vela he can do so: If not, it is not asked
nor expected. The patient goes away,
looking shame-faced perhaps and generally
doubtful, but hundreds of cases^are on rec-
ord where the ailment has entirely disap-
peared by the time the treatment is com-
Is it a faith cure? This is the generally
accepted theory, if there be any theory at
all. The Mexicans do not try to advance
any. The white people do, as they natur-

Jose Cassiano, the county collector of
Bexar county, a man who stands high in
the state of Texas, financially and politic-
ally, two months ago had one foot in th<$
grave. Doctors gave him up in despair.
He was a victim of that insidious disease,
inllammatory rheumatism. Life was then
a burden to him. To-day he is a well man.
Ills treatment was three hot baths taken
on certain days.
One of the most remarkable cures has
been that of Joseph H. Thurman, an Amer-
ican. He was a consumptive in the last
stages. He went to Don Pedrito and was
told to take a cold bath with his clothes
on at 6 p. m.: then to go outside and lie
on the ground until morning in his wet
clothes. He did so against the advice of
his friends. It was a cold night. They ex-
pected him to die as soon as he was chilled.
He did not chill. He commenced to steam.
He cried out with the heat. He was burn-
ing up, he said. The next day he felt
strong and well and has gained rapidly in

The revolutionary parliamentary action
of the city council at Its meeting on
Wednesday last still forms a topic of popu-
lar twlk among the people of Galveston
and the meeting of the council next Tues-
day Is looked forward .to with considerable
Interest. >A News reporter met Alderman
.lames Spillane yesterday, and asked him
what the situation was In his view of the
question. He said:
"As was vhown In The News editorial of
Friday, the council is endeavoring to de-
clare the result of the election ordered tor
the purpose of ascertaining the V.Is.ies of
the taxpayers In the matter If is.mlng
beach erosion bonds valid, notwlth■'landing
the charter, and the adverse opinions of
Hie city attorney and of Judge Willie.
"The origimal declaration by the council
that 'the election was successful was vetoed
by Acting Mayor Jackson, whose veto was
sustained by the council at the meeting
held last Monday. At Wednesday's meeting
the vote by -which this vet • ha I been sus-
tained was nvonsldered, the veto deieatel
nd the election declared, a second time,
"Thi** revolutionary action, which is with-
nvt precedent In parliamentary practice or
law. Mavor Flv intimated he would veto.
His veto, If tile I, will come up at the meet-
ing of the board Tuesday. There will then

be presented the unique question of t
veto of a veto first sustained and then
The position the majority of the council
have taken is that they can consider and
act upon, then reconsider and again act
upon any veto; in other words, taut they
can at one meeting sustain a v-'to and at
some future time (bring the question up
again and nullify the veto; that thev c.tn
play battledore and shut tie.\>ck wMi it
On the other hand the charter authorizes
the mayor to veto any ordinance or i solu-
tion of the council, so that it Is his preroga-
tive, if he should consider that what is
sauce for the goose be sauce for tihe gan-
der, to veto t'he resolution of the council
by which they refuse to acquiesce in 'his
vetoes. The result summed up would be:
The mayor vetoes a measure and the coun-
cil passes the measure over his veto, which
latter action the mayor also vetoes, thus
nullifying tihe action of the council and
resuscitating the original vet?..
"Of course, this appears nonsensical, but
tihe position taken by the council, reasoned
logically to its ultimate results, reaches this
"What action the •council will take is
problematical. If the mayor vetoes the
action uf Wednesday, and the majority of
the council have the nerve not fo sustain
him, the process of reduotlo al absurdam
will commence, with t'he result that this
last product in parliamentary rulings will
be shown up In all Its absurdity.
"The first objection to declaring the elec-
tion valid is that the city attorney and
Judge Willie, bofh of whom are con-iidrred
good authorities, have said that il was
not: 'the second is that nothing will be
gained by declaring it valid and certifying
the fact to the governor, fur whatever
action i'h" governor migh' take would not
be conclusive as to the validity or invalid-
ity of the issue of the bonds. The opinion
of the governor or of the attorney gen-
eral on the matter is of equal authority to,
(but no greater than that of other lawyers
of equal learning. The supreme court is
the only tribunal that can authoritatively
say whether the bond issue would be legal
"The power of the governor to appoint th
commissioners called for by the charter Is
purely a ministerial function, and it is
doubtful whether, after the fact thai the
Hon was carrie I was certified to him,
he would go behind it to question its cor-
■evtivess*. The statements It contained would
be prima facie true, and the governor, like
my sensible man. would appoint the com-
... slonena and refer persons objecting to
the act because they considered t'he election
Illegal, to the courts, a ; 't'he forum where
such differences of opinion are decided.
'Thereupon we would have three commis-
sion-ers, one of them an alderman, at sala-
ries of not less [so the charter requires],
han $1000 per year each, who would have
notihing to do but draw their salaries and
look pretty until 'the question was decided.
T'he mayor, of course, would be obliged to
■efii'Se to sign the bonds; a suit to compel
ihlm would follow, be taken from court to
court, 'at each remove to drag a lengthen-
'Phis little diversion would cost the tax-
payers only the email matter of live or six
thousand dollars. Three commissioners at
thousand doClars each, to which add a
'thousand for the engraving of the bonds
for tihe mayor to refuse to sign, and the
other thousand would be absorbed in fees
Mean while the promise of relief to the
east end would be t'hat hope deferred that
maket'h tihe heart sick.
'There is an easier, a quicker and a
heaper way to decide 'tille matter than that.
The procedure is somewhat like this. An
application can be made on Monday to
Judge Stewart for an injunction to restrain
the council from declaring the Election valid.
The facts, which are wimple, can be agreed
on and submitted. This would bring the
Whole question up. Being a matter of pub-
lic concern he would decide it quickly.
Whichever way the decision was an appeal
would be had to the court of appeals, and
afterward to the supreme court, in both of
which courts, by reason of Its public char-
acter, dt would be advanced on the dockets
and quickly disposed of.
The question would 'then be conclusively
and finally settled. The cost would be nom-
inal and the time consumed very s'hort."
LAVACA COU'NTY'S CHOICE.
Hallettsville, Tex., April in, 1894. -To The
News: If the assumed harmony In demo-
cratic ranks is'to be a certainty, in making
up the next state democratic ticket it would
be advisable to select men from both of
the factions of two years ago. What Hogg
men and what Clark men will be acceptable
to all in making up the ticket?
The undersigned will say that Lavaca
county, the only county In the Tenth con-
gressional district which supported Gov-
ernor Hogg 1n the last campaign, is more
than willing that Captain It. H. Phelps of
Fayette county should be named as one
»f the judges of the criminal court of ap-
peals and will instruct for him if he be-
comes a candidate. Six years ago, at Dal-
las, he was as strong as either of the in-
cumbents seeking re-eleictJon, and nothing
but the desire to make no change prevented
his nomination then. As a lawyer he is
equal to any man who has occupied a
place in said court, ami there are as many
things to be said in his favor as could be
said of any man who could be named for
a Judgeship In this court, For one of the
judgeships of the criminal court of ap-
peals Captain Ft. II. Phelps of Fayette
county is named as the choice of Lavaca
county. 1). A. PVAULt'S.
