Owens taking the leading part of Josiah Butterby. Tho entertainment will conclude with Mr. Owens' famous specialty of “Solon Shingle,” in which he takes the title role. The prospects are that the hall will he filled by a large and fashiona ble audience. Fiue acting doesn’t come to us so often that we can afford to neglect it. Mr. Owens’ support is said to be unusually fine, Miss M. E. Golden being especially commend ed for her wit and grace. There are«till a feu seats for sale at Stockbridgc’s. gggg) The last time Mr. Owens played here he did not give us the whole of Solon Shingle.

Iu a word, tlie stock is unusually full and complete. Oil account of the great rush tho “opening” will be prolonged some days further to accomodate the errand of visitors. Our lady readers shonld not fail to attend. Wonderful Cure.—Many of our readers will remember Miss Mary ,T. Marston, who has goue about our streets with crutches for the last six years. She sustained a severe injury to tho knee joint about eight years ago while get ting upon a railroad car. Chronic inflammation ensued, and she was obliged to betake herself to crutches. During these eight years she has been under the care of our ablest physicians, but has been afforded little relief. Four weeks ago Dr. Urann took her ease in baud, and in one week’s time she had thrown away her crutches and was enabled to walk without their aid. Since that time she has been steadily im proving, and uow walks long distances every day without inconvenience or fatigue. It is a wonderful cure. Nearly all the tickets for the Complimen tary Hop at Fluent Hall Friday evening, have been sold. A few more can be obtained by early application to the managers. TI1SCE1.1ANEOIS NOTH'E*.

Factory Operatives, after the exhaustion of their long day of labor in overheated and poorly ventilated rooms need a stimulant that is nourishing as well as warming.

Boston, has the highest reputa tion the world over. Try it! BY TEIEGRAPH. MATTERS IN MAINE. (Special to tno Frees.) Contract Awarded. Skowiif.gan, April 23.—The County Com missioners have awarded the contract of build ing the new court house in this town to Messrs. Foster & Dutton of Bethel. The whole cost will be $10,000, which ex-Gov. Coburn donates to the connty. Grand Lodge of Good Templars. Augusta, April 23.—The lodge was called to order in Meonian Hall by G. W. C. T. Hall. Over 180 delegates were initiated. The Secre tary’s report and address of G. W. C. T. Hall were very interesting. Reports of G. W. Treasurer and Superintendent of Cold Water Templars were made.

Loss estimated at $100,600. All the telegraph lilies ran on this bridge and were destroyed. MASSACHUSETTS. The Hoosac Tunnel. Proposition for the People to Rnn a Railroad. _ Boston, April 23.—The minority report of the Legislative Committee on Railroads, esti mate the cost of the Hoosac Tunnel, including interest, at $12,000,000, and say that this ex penditure is a charge upon the people and the whole State. It seems improbable that any disposition can be made of the tunnel which can return to the Treasury the whole sum ex pended, and it is for the Lagisla'ure to deter mine how far a return can be made to the peo ple of the State from this great public expendi ture in increased means ot transportation and reduction of rates, which are now a burden upon the whole community. Since the tuunel was projected new lines of railroad have been built which givo to nearly every portion of the State direct access to the tunnel and through it to the great West. The Comnvttee are fully convinced that to secure to the people the full advantages to he derived from the construction of this new avenue to the West and to secure equal rights to all parties desiring to use it, the State mus not part with the control of the tunnel. Wo are equally con vinced that secure efficiency in the lines work ing through the tunnel, consolidation is neces sary, and that the tunnel itself must be worked and managed for all parties using it by one head. No private |corporation can be trusted when its own interests may conflict with inter ests of other and perhaps rival corporations io establish or to enforce rules for the transaction of such business ftwvj UU «.v/ umwcrtw; uiJtc mail agement, which, it is claimed, would be effi cient and reliable beyond that of ordinary rail road corporations. Tbe bill accompanying tho report provides for the appointment of five trustees by the Governor and the committcee who are to he created a corporation under the name of the State Board of Trustees of the Hoosac Tunnel Railroad, and shall have solo charge, direction) and controljof tho Troy as d Greenfield Railroad and of the Hoosac Tunnel when said tunnel shall be completed or sur rendered by tbe contractors; also of tbe South ern Vermont Railroad, and of such other rail roads as be may be leased or acquired under tho provisions of this act. They shall appoint a treasurer, and a general manager whenever they may deem such an officer necessary, one or more superintendents and such other agents as may be|required for the operation of said rail roads and tunnel. Semi-annual reports to the Governor and Council, and annual reports to tho Railroad Commissioners are provtded for. Each trustee shall receive $3000 per annum, except the Pres ident who shall receive 83000. The sum of 80,000,000 is appropriated to carry out tile pro visions of the act, which shall be provided for by the issue of scrip. Provision is made for the leasing of the Vermont and Massachusetts railroad, the Fitchburg railroad and the Troy and Boston railroad. Twenty-five per cent, of the gross earnings of each leased road is to he reserved annually, to pay the rental equal to ten per cent, of the present capital stock of each company. Each company is to elect one trustee for fivo years, who shall become a member of the hoard. The majority report favors consolidation, but not State control. Bam Murder. Boston, April 23.—At Edgeworth this morn ing, Mark Boothby, a carpenter, while under the influence of liquor, deliberately shot liis wife,instantly killing her. The murderer escap ed, but his little girl gave the alarm and he will probably soon lie arrested. Various Mutters. Lewis alias Deluse. was sentenced to sixteen years in States Prison to-day for burglary. Alonzo Burke of Milton, was killed last even ing while trying to 'get on hoard of a moving train. The Massachusitts Legislative Committee on Labor reported to the House to-day leave to withdraw on the various petitions for the eight hour law. Boiler Explosion. Nonwicn, Ct., April 23.—A boiler in the foundery of Merritt & Bugay, in Main street, exploded to-day with terrific force, instantly killing Horace Stevenson, the engineer, anil Allen McLeand, fireman. It is supposed the former was working on the boiler, as he was blown bigli into tho air. A portion of the boiler, weighing half a ton,was burled 23 yards. Another large piece seriously damaged a build ing opposite. The foundry is completely wrecked, loss 830,000. The country printers in northern Alabama refuse to work on papers using “patent out sides.” NEW YORK. A Decision Against Blokes. New York, April 23.-The Supreme Court room was densely crowded to-day to hear the decision in a motion made yesterday m the Stolces case by District Attorney Phelps. The motion was to set aside the allegation of errors made by the defendant’s attorney. Judj?e Davis to-day granted the motion. This decision les sens Stokes’s chances of obtaining a new trial. Tkc IVatiounl Board of Underwriters. At a meeting of the National Board of Un derwriters to-day the following companies were represented: , From Bangor, the Union; from Boston, the Fanueil Hall and North American; from Glcu Falls, the Glen Falls; from Springfield, Mass., the Springfield; from Providence, the Atlantic, Equitable, Narragansott aud Providence; from Hartford, the Orient and Phoenix; from Mcii den, the Meriden; from Middletown, the Peo ple’s: also delegates from all parts of this State and from tile west and Europe. The Treasur er’s report showed the funds to be i n good coil ditiou. President Oakley delivered an address congratulating the association upon its pros perity asserting that its objects were for the en hancement of insurance. The interests through out the country were being attended with good results. He said the Chicago and Boston fires demonstrated that the insuring in companies who charge a small competition premium on risks was so low that when heavy losses cams they were not able to meet thempind the policy holders had to suffer. Referring to the Boston fire he said the total loss is estimated at $70, 000,000. On this there was insurance in Massa chusetts companies of $35,000,000, over $15,000, 000 in companies in other States, and over $4,000,000 in companies of other countries, and of this amount $36,870,343 have been paid, which makes 65 73-100 per cent, of the entire losses. Regarding the rates he said that after the Chicago fire, when it was found necessary to advance the rates 50 per cent the public met it with good fee ling and cheerfully acqniescedTn the advance. The public had learned that the safety of insurance was not only in capital hut depende d greatly upon adequate rates on risks, which made the companies strong and the poli cies secure. The average per cent, last year paid in New York State on the capital invested was 72 1-100, a falling off of four per cent. The reports of committees were read and commit tees for the next year appointed, after which the convention adjourned till to morrow. Various Matters. Henry Bergh was arrested to-day in suit of Dennis Cbestie, for false imprisonment. Bergh was released on bail. City Sanitary Inspector James reports that of 540 cellars examined between Houston street aud Battery, 450 arc unfit fer occupancy. The Railroad Tax. Albany, April 23.—United States Collector Bailey to-day sold eight locomotives belonging to the New York Central Railroad, seized for non-payment of taxes. They realized $22,750 and were bought on behalf of the company. WASHINGTON. The Coinage Question. Washington. April 23. —The director of the mint has fixed the charge for coining the new trade dollar at one-half ncr cent, per piece, which is the lowest possible rate under the law. Great expectations are entertained of the trade dollar as a means of creating a home demand for departing bullion and keepingj-old in the the country. The republic of Hayti, Ecuador and other South American republics are anx ious that their coinage he executed by the United States, but there is no law which will permit this to be done. It is probable that Con grq^i will autlirize such services. THE MODOC WAK. Capi. Jack not to be found* New York, April 23.—A despatch from the lava beds says the Modocs were seen in their camps yesterday (Tuesday) morning, and the Warm Spring Indians are to he put on their track at once. Our camp was not attacked on Monday night, as was anticipated. A light fall of snow yesterday afforded water to the Modocs hidden in the rocks. More teamsters were reported fired on Monday cveniug and a Modoe ambush was discovered. The troops have been stationed to fire upon any Modocs go ing to the lake for water, All the troops are doing well, and the prospects for bagging the whole tribe are brightening. San Fnancisco, April 22—A courier from the front arrived at Yreka this morning. Some of the volunteers who escorted Hovey’s remains to town had a talk with Fairchild and ascer tained that Scar-facedOharley is not killed, the body supposed to be his being that of Shack nasty Jim. Schoncbin was not killed by Mea eham, hut only wounded in the breast. He was killed by a shell, and the whole of liis body below the breast was torn to pieces. Another yonng Modoc named Watchatalle was recog nized among the dead. The shell that killed Schoncbin and others was picked up by Watch atalle before it exploded. From the way things looked in the cave, the finding of ammunition, provisions and other articles; it was evident that the Indians left in a hurry, no doubt sup posing that ttioir stronghold was to be blown up. "Tracks at of least seven Indians have beeu seen between Fairchild’s place and the lower Klamoth Lake. Many persous are of the opin ion that small parties of Modocs will raid around the couutay toj obtain good horses, while a sufficient number will remain in the lava beds to keep the soldiers busy there. At the Fhont, April 20—i p m.—The cav alry have returned. They failed to discover any sigusjof an Indian trail. Dr. Cahaneseo lias returned from the lava beds. (He reports two squaws captured. Col. Ferry travelled about eight miles mak ing a circuit of the lava beds. He saw no In dians. The Warm Spring Indians will soon be on the trail of the rambling Modocs who bother ed the troips to-night. Dr. Cabanesco was along the line during the day of the fight, and says he counted twelve warriors slain. How many were buried no one knows. The Modocs were seen to-day from the look out at the signal station. Mr. Tiekuor started to-day with express forLinkville hut he saw a party of Indians and had to turn back. Two Modocs are supposed to have been killed in the fights yesterday. There is much speculation in regard to tiro Modocs gaining aid from other tribes. It is possible that all the tribe3 except tne Warm Spring Indians will sympathize with Capt. Jack, but they are satisfied that to aid him means extermination. The Fitt River Indians will not be likely to join Jack unless he forces them. They are a miserable set, and have be come so demoralized over the many chastise ments by Gen Cook that they have lost all cour ago to fight the whites. The Snake Creek In dians of Fall River are a mean set and really belong to the Flutes. The Snakes and Fiutes who roam about Goose Lake aud further north are vieious customers, although belonging to some northern reservation in Idaho and Oregon, they are constantly prowling around the sec tion comprising Goose Lake, Cliavan and other valleys in eastern Oregon, northern Nevada and southern Idaho. The Shastas scarcely number half a dozen warriors. They have al ways Been bitter enemies of the Modocs. The Scott Valley and Klamoth River Indians al- ' though sought for aid had never shown a dis position to take stock in Capt. Jack’s crusade. The Indians hereabouts and throughout Scott Valley are well posted on the movements of the Modocs. Signal fires are reported on some of tlio hills in Scott Valley, but whether they are signals of Modocs or not it is not known. The Modocs Found. A San Francisco special dated last night has the following:— An nffiniJ TV the Lava Beds from Gen. Gillem to General Schofield reports that tho Modocs have been discovered in the Lava Bads four miles from their old stronghold. The Modocs were com pelled to evacuate their first hiding place in consequence of the scarcity of water. General Gillem reports that the Indians aro now three miles from water. Monday the Modocs made an attack on an escort party, killing oue and wounding another. Gen. Gillem thinks he has the Modocs completely in his power, and that thero is no chance for them to escape. He was actively engaged for three days before their hiding place was discovered. Gen. Jeff C. Davis tho successor of Gen. Canby, arrived in th's city this evening. He will depart immediately for the Modoc country and assume command of the expedition. San FrancisoO, April 23.—No further news has been received about the Modoc war. A despatch from Portland, Oregon, to-night, says the Indians on the upper Columbia, Snake and Lewis rivers are well posted ou the Modoc affairs; and are indulging extravagantly on war paint and war dances. Their conduct l's mena cing. Troops in eastern |Oregon will probably prevent or punish any overt act. Tho troops in Sanora arefmaking vigorous war against tho Apaches from Arizona, and expect to diminish the number of depredations maternally. Rninorc I Imliita Xroublo on the Border.
