W. Keene, in " Kichard III," at the Grand opera house, Tuesday evening Nov. 17. The theatre-going people of this city need no introduction to Mr. Keene, his appearance at the opera house last spring as Hamlet has not been forgotten by them. We take the following from the New York Dramatic News: " In apperarauce, Mr. Keene is an ideal Richard. He looks the character to the hfe, with Bcarcelv any need of other stage artífice than dress. His voice is good and he has remarkable power of facial expression Hin conception of the charactes of Richard is board and vigorous, and the sudden transition which it demands, though strongly accentuated, are regulated by sound judgement and good taste. We congratúlate Mr. Keene on havingscored an emphatic success. The play was well mounted aud tne supporting company better than we are, unfortunately, accustomed to see supporting our antive "stars.' A student rush occurred at the postoffice Moitday evening, and policemeu Campiou and Heuderson interfered aud arrested Manley, law '87, and 8wartwood, medie '8(i, and took them to Justice frueaufï 's office. They wero followed by fúlly l,()0() students, who demandad the immediate release, on bail, of the ar rested persons. Ttais request was granted, the "Two Sama" appearing as sureties for the prisoners. Tl)e students then retiied to the campus and an mdignation meeting was held and a committee appointed to investígate the matter and to be present at the trials. The meeting was addressed by PoBtmaster DuffY, who promiaed that ih long as the stuaents ere orderly that the pólice should be kept out of the postónica. He also said that there was no occasion for the arrests that were made in the post-office The committee have investigated and find sufficient cause to petition the mayor and council to expel polieetnan Hendirsonfromtheforce. There seems to be a fnendly feeling between the studeiits and the forci', with the exception if HendersoD, whom they claim RKHiilted iunoceut studeuts, and nsed profane and indecent language to them, and gave pennission to a drunkeh mob to beat them with clubs. The professor approvo of the action of the students, but advise them to bc careful not to dp anytning rash or to disobey the law ín anyway. Kev. Mr. Gage, of Naslma, N. H., wil preaob a the Uuitarian chnrch, Sunday He will be follón ed for the next fou Suudays by the Kev. Mr. Bixby of MaB sachusetts. We regret to ohronicle the death of Dr. Will G. Terry, which ocourred Sunday at 1 :30 a. m., at the home of his parents in this city, after an illness of four months, of inflammatory rheumatism. Dr. Terry was bom iu this city March 4, 18.");!, where he spent his boyhood days and graduated in the medical departnient of the uuiversity, with the clasR of '76. He then practiced medicine at Otter Lake for one year, after which he re moved to Warren, Mecomb county, where he spent three years at his profession and was one of the leading local politicians, a'id returned to this city in 1880. The Doctor also spent some time as a clerk in the pension department at Washington. He was well known to the citizens of Ann Arbor, and all unite in sympathiziug with his parents in their bereavenieut. Wm. H. Lewis has rented the Follett House of Geo. Moorman for tb ree and a half years. The house is fltted up in superb style. Not many botéis excel ite complete furoishings. Mr. and Mis. Lewis are bom managers of a popular hotel. VVhile kaving charge of the Leww house they had the reputation of setting one of the beet tables of auy hotel in the state. Commercial travelers took pains to stop at Ypsilanti on account of the superior attractions of the liotul. It will be doulIy so now. - Ypsilauti Commercial. For yearg Mr. Lewis was engaged in the hotel business in Ann Arbor, lirst as proprietor of the Leonard house, and still later of the St. James. He enjoyed the same reputation here that he did when running the Lewis house - of setting a No. 1 titble. Air. L. is an obligiug and popular landlord, and always makes it pleasant for his guests. Success again, William. Byrne's Dramatic Times says; Mr. Keene's style is robust and manly, his voice cleaJ, resonant and pleasant, and his methods, above all, charged with earneHtuess. It is no wonder then that M r. Keene should have jjiven a surprise to the large audience which assembled to see him m what has been called his "veliement method," only to fiud a stong and haadsomely outliued face on a wellfornied, though, for the opcasion, fc rotes quely madeup figure, and an excellent retinement of artitic taste. Keene's Richard is lesa brutal and more picturesque than any on the American stage. His mobile features sugge-t rather the t'rench school rather than the conventionul style of the Anglo-Öaxon Glosters, but it remains an . original creation, hammered into shape by straiglitforwardness of purpose anti a desire to put into form precisely what Shakespeare meant. So far froin ranting, Mr. Keene is most fortúnate in this, that his voice is sweet, and when running into excitement and passionentirely f ree from throatv gur irhnes or metallic tonea. No on whn saw the performance of Monday night will deny Mr. Keene's rank as the first and best in this role. We are fortúnate in the possession of so strong, manly and self-repressed an actor. It is also seldom that a play has been presented in so thorough a manner, and with so excellent a cast, as theone Mr. William R. Hayden surrounds his star with. In fact, the bundle failed to shoV a single stick.
