Grand Scenic Effects. The Stranglers of Paris, the dramatic sensation of New York, will be presented at Haverly's Theatre next week. It is said to eclipse anything of the kind recently attempted on the American Stage. It is a dramatization of Belot's celebrated novel, "The Stranglers of Paris," and is from the pen of David Belasco, an adept at this sort of work. To give the reader an idea of the magnitude of the piece it is only necessary to say that over seventy people take part in the action of the play, and ten tons of scenery, mechanical appliances, properties, etc. are used. The story is of the most weird and sensational character, and of course gives every opportunity for the scene painter, the stage carpenter, the machinist, and the best efforts of a skilled dramatic company. This latter includes that rare portraiture of picturesque stage villains, Henry Lee, besides Miss Salina Fetter, W. H. Compton, Miss Libble Noxon, Mr. James Wallis, Fred'k Haubner, HelenOttolengul, Marie Frazer, Dore Davidson, and nearly seventy others of well-known ability. The next feature of this presentation of the drama is the completeness and detail of all the scenes, especially those of the prison yard, the bridge, the convict ship in mid-ocean, in which the blended arts of the stage painter and the stage machinist seem to have reached their height.
