AS AN ACTOR. The Brawny, Brainless Bruiser Not a Howling Success in the His- -, trionio Art, HE M1Y SLUG, BUT HE CAN'T AOT The Profuse Abandon With Which He Swaggered Ac ess The Stage His B. Fists. St. Louis Republic. New York, Sept. 1. The threatened assault by John L. Sullivan upon tho drama was mado this afternoon at Niblo's Garden and was repeated in the evening. Tho famous pugilist played a part in a new melodrama called "Honest Hearts aud Willing Hands.." aud did it as well and as badly as could have been expected. The matinee audience was about half sized, but at night tho house was crowded. Xdithcrassemblago was disposed to consider the prize fighter's acting seriously, and tho most sensitive friend of the stage need have no fear that Mr. Sullivan will bo in the least gratified by his theatrical exploit. Not only did the parquet people laugh at him, but the smallest boys in the gal-lery, away up beyond his fists, joined in the ridicule. His dramatic season, therefore, may depend for length oa his abstinence from auger as well as from alcohol. lie got through his lirst day's work as an actor without stepping over tho footlights aud knocking out a disrespectful audience, but signs of an infirm temper were disccrnablo in him several times and the city authorities were advised to order a net spread not for tho safety of the man, but to protect those upon whom he might fall in his wrath. The role enacted by Mr. Sullivan in "Honest Hearts and Willing Hands" was uot that of the boss hero, but of the hero's brother and assistaut. Duncan Harrison was tho principal in tho an-guish and joy of tho play. Ho had written it, and why not with a pen pointed at his own abilities? As to his lalent, they are those of a robust, manly actor, who either cannot master tho niceties of his art or does riot care to, and who seems quite conten t with the plaudits of the tboughiless multitude. Iu melodrama he had written as though for the yellow binding and Ueade imprint of the dime novel. But it was uot Mr. Harrison nor his acting, nor yet his play for which fo ks went to Ni'ulo's. The fact was manifest when a big stalwart figure strode into the lirst scene. LOOKS LIKE FAUNTLEUOV. " murmured the gal-lery mistaking him for Sullivan. Then tho s ii. 1 1 voice of a boy, but expressive of abou :en average men's scorn, broke out with "aw; dat hint him" It was only Duncan Harrison, actor aud author, but not tho champion prizu lighte f tho word. Still when Mr. Sullivau did step iuto sight tho applause which greeted him merged iuto laughter, and it was clear that ho was not going to be taken lor anything but a joke. This lirsi hilarity was caused by his looking like the rockiest Little Lord Fauntleroy that had ever grown iuto an enormous slugger, with hair crop-ped close to a wide-eare- d head aud hands so big that it was a wonder how the sleeves of his coat had got into his arms: The coat was a short velvet one and tho very wido collar of an open-necke- d shirt was turned over it, while the stalwart legs were in velvet panties and liver-colore- stockings. Mr. Sulli-iva- n was an Irish blacksmith in the play, and this costume was doubtless the outcome of an attempt to make him picturesque. His lirst dramatic duty was to help bring in a fragile lady who was hurt and faint from a" carriage ac-cident. She seemed to feel better and safer as soon as she was out of his arms, while ho, with nothing to hang on to, slouched a few steps across the with tho true stage Bowery lurch, such as comedians are so foiid of mimicking, and then stood stock still with a fixed, meaningless face, suggesting paresis, and which may have como of stage fright. His first words were those of thanks to the other characters who had assisted in rescuing tho lady, and he sounded better than he looked. That was true of him throughout tho per-formance. Of course he had no elocu-tionary skill whatever, but his voice was oluminous and jiot unpleasant, He soon has occasion to remark to an insulter of the heroine: "By heavens! I'll choke you ." THE AUDIENCE LAl'fins. The upper half of the audience yelled with anticipatory delight, but there was a saving "it" In the threat, and the vil-lain escaped a crunching He was out-right and outrageous, this villain. In the brief course of the play ho com-mitted the crimes of theft, burglary felonious assault, forgery, abducting', perjury and fratricide, and bel ween species of active deviltry, he sneered aid jeered as only a stage villain can But the brawny brothers downed him at last. Mr. Harrison was John, and he had the most of the sentiment to voice. Mr. Sullivan was Jim, and he stood still nearly all the time he was in sight. He was altogether absent from the second act, but the third had himin a blacksmith shop with his amis bared to the biceps and his tremendous lists in full view. He uudoubled oue of them, covered his brow and most of his head easily with the broad palm, and while au expression that was almost human came into his face, said hoarsely I'.vn'i T tl'i,,lk!" Tho Proposition audience as a funny oue, and the heartless laughter was loud and long. But Mr. Sullivan did not smile. He was grimly serious, peahaps because the greatest straiu upon his histrionic powers were just about to be made. John was faslcly accused of murder and Jim compelled him against his brave inclination to hide for a while. It was in this assertion of dominance that the pugdist d.d his best as a player. It was not very good, but it was vigorous, and In the fourth act he had a mectino-jwt- his swecrheart, but the dramatist not dared to trust him with a love scene, and the interview was only a dozen words long.

TliEli.llLll0.1lll!EiT!l!ll Progress of the Work on the Standard Gauging of the Colorado Junc-tion Koad, RUMBLINGS FROM THE RAIL. A Superintendent's Association Organized at Denver Firemen Pass Through the City - Railway Botes. Colonel Ferguson, whose return from Colorado by way of the great Trans-continental Branch lino has already been recognized in these columns, was seen by the reporter today concerning the progress of work on the KioGramle-Midlan- d joint track from Glonwood Springs to Grand Junction, which es-tablishes a standard gauge avenue di-rect from the heart of the rocky regions of Colorado to connect witli the valley of the Jordan via the Kio (irande Wes-tern. Colonel Ferguson having pushed through on the route stales that yester-day the contractors expected to reach a point within eleven miles of Grand Junction, from which place thq sailing would bo as smooth as on an open sea. This he con-cludes is an important step in favor of Salt Lake and the farmers of the valley, who will (ind a large draft from Leadville, Aspen and other thriving and populous camps upon their pro-ducts. Tho tunned on the Midland which pierces the Sawatch range be-tween Leadville and Aspen, and which is over 11000 feet in length, also reduces tho distance to Salt Lake seven miles, not to mention the reduction of time that may be made iu a tunnel that opens at the base of the divide and does away with a slow climb and zig-za- up tin; crest of the hill. This enterprise will involve heavy expense, the first appropriation amounting to $1,000,000. Hitherto the trains have been operating through llagcrman luunel. A Superintendent ,'iKHOcintlon. The Koeky Mountain News says: Ono of tho most important organizations lo the commercial world of Deuvor and vicinity is the superintendent's associa-tion, which has just been formed. This organization will include among its members the superintendents of Denver. The rules anil regu-lations are ready and the plan is that they should meet here at least oneo ev-ery month in the private ollico of Super-intendent Duncan ' of the Union Pa-cific road. But because of tho title to the association it must not be supposed that superintendents of railroad lines are the only members. On the con-trary, all the shippers and ageuts of the ililicrcnt lines ceutcring into Den-ver are eligible to membership. It will be seen what a large representation this comprises. Jt will take in men from all over the state, if they desire to alliliate, and there is no doiibt they will. But the limitation does not stop here. All merchants will In! pcnniUcd to lako active mem-bership in the superintendents' association. Only a merchant who has wrestled with the perplexing question of rates and transportation facilities can realize how important such a privi-lege will be to them. They can enter the councils of tho society and there present their grievances or recommen-dations as the caso may be. With such a large latitude il is expected that when the advantages and opportunities of the new society become well known the membership will become so large that even Superintendent Duncan's spacious apartments will be too small to accom-modate tho monthly sessions. Lot Tbeni All In. Oxford, Meb., on the Burlington, is tho most wonderful junction in the world. At least so thought iho passen-gers in the chair car on the Burlington liver last Thursday morning, says the Denver News. Astho west bound train neai'ed the town tho porter, an ebon sou of the Congo, entered tho chair car, and stopping halfway down tho aisle, cried oil' in measured tones like tho town clerk, the following: "Ox-for- d is the net stop. Change cars for Or-leans, Jtepuhlican, Bed Cloud, While Cloud, Wymiiic, Table Bock, (iuido liock, White Hock, Middle Lock and Humboldt; Atchison, Brookfield, Wiu-lieh- l, Bichlield, (ireeulield, Hannibal, Hanover, Hunnewell, Kansas City, Macon City, Beaver City, Fall City, Bird City, Mound Cily, (irand City, King City.

He paused and tho passengers, convulsed with laughter, burst Into a perfect storm of applause. TI.e 11:11110 of the porter who wrought out this ingenious station call is ,1. H.

The Union Pacific train No. 2, which left Ogden at 10:110 yesterday morning was thrown off the track at Croydon, 2H miles east of Ogden. The train was composed of a baggage and express, mail, lirst aud second class coaches, a Pullman, 11. (I. AV. deadhead, anil the private car of President Bliss arid party of the Boston & Albauy. Near Croydon tho train struck a broken rail and the last rhroo cars mentioned loft tho track, turning over upon their sides. The oceupauts.whilo being badly shaken up, wcro uot ser-iously injured, tho worst case being that of Mrs. (fates of this city, who was somewhat scraped and bruised about the arm and head. Tho passengers were transferred and continued their journey eastward. Ilolcuinb llcnios It. A special from Omaha says: llolcomb of the Uu'on Pacific road, in. response to au inquiry from your correspondent regarding the truth of tho report that serious differences had arisen between President Charles Francis Adams and Director Fred Ames, which might result, in Adams' retirement, said: "It is pure fiction. There is not a word of truth in it. 1 do not soe where theso reports come from. There is no discord in the board of directors, nor have there been any personal differences between Mr. Adams and Mr. Ames." When asked if more changes are contemplated, he said, "Not for the present." They Passed Through.

Like young men of that section he many early began to drift westward. tt hen only thirteen years old he started out in life' for himsel'f. At that age he went to central New York, where for a time ho lived with a brother. Iu 1WI0 he went to Ohio, and was there teaching school when the war broke out. Mr. Parsons at once enlisted in the, Fortv-sixt- Ohio regiment. He served under Gen. Sherman in every one of his campaigns. For twenty months he served in the ranks, and then gradually rose to the rank of captain. lor a tune he was on Gen. Walcott's stall, and later and at the. close of the war on the staff of Gen. John A. Logan. Mr. Par-sons has almost a phenomenal record. He was in thirty-seve- n battles, but was never wounded, never in the hospital and never in prison. At the close of tho war Mr. Parsons settled down in Lancaster, O., and mar-ried. The next suriug he was appointed lirst lieutenant in tho regular army 'This appointment was made by General Grant, and was made solely on Mr. Parsons' war record. Mr. Parsons served in th i Twelfth infantry until tho fall of 1810, when he resigned, and came to I'tah the next spring. Mr. Parsons has lived in this terri-tory ever since. From 1873 to 1870 ho was employed in the postofliee. Since that time he has been engaged in vari-ous business pursuits, and by his industry and integrity has dono much for the best interests of Salt Lake and Utah. In July, 18(1, he was appointed United States Marshal, which position he now holds. Mr. Parsons is the eighth one of a family of eleven that has lived to silver wedding, and the only time his father saw his family together was when Mr. Parsons was married; and as a singular but sad episode, Mr. Parsons received a tclcgiam just as his friends departed, that his father died at tho age of 1)3. in Cedar county, la lie leavus for the funeral tomorrow on the llyer. Three of them here are going. THE PRESENTS. The list of the presents is as follows: S t of a dozen fancy spoons from il. K ols. of Denver. S .ver pickle torlt from Mrs. and Mrs. J. W.

A Eewildering 'my of Beautiful Pre-sents The W eath of Floral Decorations, The residence of United States Mar-shal E. II . Parsons on Last Second South street was last evening a scene of rare beauty. Tho nceassion was the celebration of Mr. and Mrs. Parsons silver wedding. The beautiful home was thronged with guests. Three hundred invitations had beeu sent out and every one invit cd, who could possibly be there, was present. The presents were many and beautiful and spread out on a large table presented an array of dazzling beauty. The lawn was hung with Chinese lan-terns and at one side was tu'ected a large tent in which were served refrsh-mcnt- The interior of the house was beautifully decorated. The bow win-dow iu the library was tastefully trim-med in ferns and siuilax and iu the cen-ter reposed a great mound of snow white asters which were scut from Tho parlor was a study in yellow and the effect was charming. The fire place was filled in with a perfect grovo of sunflowers, and sunflowers filled every window, aud other yellow blossoms filled every nitch and bracket on the walls. Between tho parlor and sitting room was a great arch of silver poplar and smilax, aud under this arch the formal ceremonies of the evening took place. When Mr. aud Mi s Parsons stood up together under the green arch they formed a most pieasing picture. Twenty-fiv- e years of married happiness had mado their facets to shine. Sirs. Parsons was dressed iu white silk mull with crepe lisseand pearls and silver ornaments. The pearls am! slip-pers she wore graced tho first wedding just ono quarter of a century airo. Around them were th .r chil-dren, Mrs. Mary C. Mills-paug- Kale. Berth. Belle aud Maurice. Tho ceremonies were conducted by Kev. Dr. McNioee. lie made a happy address, and offered congratulations on behalf of the assembled friends. mi. mcxiuce's SPEECH. Rev. Dr. MoNiece spokesybstantially as follows, blending the huifiorous with tho serious: Ft ikn sA.iom oitnoHs: Weare met here uud'. Jcas..nt circumstances to join iu a silver wedding. Allow me to put in a saort preface before the ceremony. In my library is a volume hearing Hum most title: 'Is Marriage a Failure?" Although the book coiisid rs the question In a serious way. it nevertheless seems to me a most linpudi'it.iUcstiou. And I hope all who are hero are prepared to join with mo iu say-ln;- that any man i or woman i who can serious'iy ask aud such a question, in tins Christian age, gives evidence that he is him-self a inee ble failure, if uol a nuisance that ought ti lie suppressed. L uigliier. lie shows that he knows nothing anout what true marriage is. or he would not raise any such impertinent question. Although the question 's put forth as though it were ililllcult to answer, I consider that il .s a very, s question to answer. It. admits of three an rs In the lirst place, we .nay say. cn the ludicionn that depends somewhat on the kind of mother-in-la- one gels: ILauchter.l If uue .h as fortunate iu that t as I myself have been, for exainp'e. or as many of my friends here have been, to my per-sonal knowledge, mairane Is piedesilued to be Kin cessnil. The other sale of this poiut I do do uot dare iliscusB. Laughter.J Tlie next answer is this: If men end women are determined to make fools of themselves; if they are mean aud Hellish aud cruel hearted, caring nothing whatever for the welfare and happiness of others; if men marry women for their money, or. as is soinetiiiies done in this peculiar region, to save the wages of Bridget; if women marry men simply for position or and there is n i love in the heart on elt her side surh marriages are bound to be a failure, and ought to be, and 1 believe the Lord Intended they hould be a failure. The third answer Is, that If men and women are manly and womanly; If they regulate their lives by serious purpose aud noble prin-ciple; If they are generous and uusellish, and about as much interested in the happiness and welfare, of others as in their own, and mar-riage is based on that true love iu the heart which never fails, such a marriage cau never be a la lure, whether the home is in a cottage or a palace. 1 say, hajipy is tho family that can take de-ltoight Iu calling in their friends and neighbors rejoice wltli them iu celebrating a sliver wedding.
