AT THE THEATRES

The Richards ft Prtngle company of
negro minstrels began - a, week's en
gagement at Oordray'a theatre yester
day. The company is above the av
erage of its kind, and amused a crowd
ed house. J. W. Cooper, in a ventrtlff
qulst , "act"; William Garland, tenor,
soloist; Clarence Powell, "Just plain
comedian," and "Dude" Kelly, dancer
and end man, were features of tlje per
formance. There are all the tlme-non-
ored features of the old minstrel show
.the first part, the oUo and the- after
piece. ; The performance la worth the
' "THB CXSZSTZAH."
"The Christian" opened a week's term
at Baker's theatre- yesterday afternoon.
Most of , the members of the company
have had experience In this day. and
the performances yesterday passed 'off
with, more than the -usual smoothness
W first productions. Esther Lyons as
tiwry Quayle, ' and ; George Alison as
John Storm, carried the heavy work of
the piece without a stagger. Carlyle
Moore was an acceptably hateful Lord
Robert Ur. ' and Mlna, Crollus Gleason
as Mrs.-Callendar was excellent as al
ways. Gertrude River had little to d .
but did that little gracefully. The rest
of the -company. was up to its average.
WEATHER STOPS THE
i. CITY'S PROGRESS
Not for many years has there been
such a dull period In this office," said
Deputy City Engineer A.,M. Shannon,
who presides over the department hav
ing charge the issuing of building per
mits and sidewalk improvements. "Tho
unusually heavy rains of the last two
weeks seem to have paralysed business,
and I have never seen such laxity in
building circles within the past few
"I have been in the omce about 1 li
years, and 1 do not recall a time when
so few permits were issued and so few
people called here for various matters
of business on account of weather con
ditions. All the building trades seem
to have been stopped by continual rains,
and evidently there will be nothing
doing until the weather settles."
