THE MARYLAND JUBILEE CO. Figure J. S. GRABBE Figure G. T. MOSLEY Figure J. G. PROSSER Figure E. S. THOMAS Figure J. EDW. GLARKE CAXTON ENG. CHICAGO . THE MARYLAND JUBILEE CO. IN offering to the public the Maryland Jubilee Company we feel safe in saying that no adverse criticism can be made, either upon their work or personal conduct. Each member of the company has established a record of which any concert singer might be proud. Mr. Mosley, the first tenor, during his years of service, has made a name for himself in sentimental and comic songs which is unequaled by any jubilee singer in this country. Mr. Prosser, second tenor and accompanist, is highly qualified to fill the place with great success, as he has fully demonstrated during his two years of c concert work. His popular songs with the guitar accompaniment are a pleasing feature of the programs. Mr. Thomas, first bass, has a voice of phenomenal range and he has been rightly called the greatest colored bass in this country. He is qualified to sing not only the songs of the popular type, but the songs of the higher grade that give the greater variety to the program. Mr. Crabbe, second bass, possesses a voice of rare richness and unusual depth and volume. Whether in solo or quartet work, he never fails to give the highest satisfaction. Mr. Clarke is rapidly making for himself a name among the younger magicians, having been given his first impulse and assistance along this line by the Great Hermann. He will introduce some new and novel tricks in the art of legerdemain. EXCLUSIVE MANAGEMENT THE MUTUAL LYCEUM BUREAU, WOODLAWN, CHICAGO. PRESS NOTICES The tenor, C. T. Mosley, and the basso, E. S. Thomas, are especially worthy of mention. Mr. Mosley is not only an unusually fine tenor, but as a mimic and an actor he is first class. In these spirited plantation songs which portray so much of the negro character, Mr. Mosley is perfectly at home. The bass of Mr. Thomas was a notable feature of the evening. He certainly has a superb voice. — New Comerstown, O. E. S. Thomas, the basso, is a physical giant, and his voice is as heavy as his body is big. He sang the famous Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep, with a power that delighted the audience. C. T. Mosley, the big black tenor, was the comedian of the show, and fun seemed to be in every motion of his hands, feet, head, mouth and eyes. — Newton Falls, N. Y. Mr. J. Edward Clarke, the peerless young magician of the race, appeared in the ball room here, before a crowded house of guests. His tricks with cards and sleight of hand are perfect. The disappearing egg trick was performed with professional skill while the audience sat breathlessly awaiting his next number. — Buena Vista, Pa. We sincerely regret that Clarke, the great magician, and acknowledged master of cards, has signed with the Maryland Jubilee Company, as it leaves a vacant place that he alone can fill with his wonderful skill and dexterity. We hope for him much success. — Alpha Social Club, Baltimore, Md. Figure Figure Clarke, the magician, by special request performed at our crowded fair rooms. Notwithstanding the short notice the audience could not be seated, and even approached the stage. His performance was startling and highly appreciated. — Xavier Lyceum. Mr. J. S. Crabbe, as the bass, did exceedingly well. — Montrose, Colo., Press. Clarke is certainly wonderful in his magic. We have no doubt that this young man, in the near future will be second to none. — The Guide, Ellicott City, Md. Mr. Mosley, one of Baltimore's favorite soloists, took the house by storm and more fully established Baltimore's reputation as a city of songsters. Mr. C. T. Mosley, possessed of a strong, clear tenor voice, with all the peculiar richness of his race, quite took the audience by storm. He was always acting as well as singing and with a troupe of that kind that peculiarity should be a distinguished feature. He sang Little Black Me, which was quite pathetic, and the audience was so captivated with the singer that they looked forward to his song in the second part as a new treat. When it came, it did not disappoint them. In fact he received one encore after another and the house seemed loth to see him go. — Monroe, Mich., Democrat. The special features of the evening were the solos by E. S. Thomas, who has a wonderful voice for depth and power, and the tenor singing of C. T. Mosley, who is a humorist and actor of merit, as well as singer. — New Castle, O., Herald, Jan. 14. C. T. Mosley, the tenor soloist, rendered Little Black Me in a sweet and touching manner. He has a voice of remarkable sweetness and with the company chorus this number was among the most pleasing. During the second part Mr. Mosley appeared again as a soloist and gave four selections before he was able to retire. This gentleman is also the funny man of the company and added no little to the interest of the productions. — Alliance, O., Daily Leader. The tenor, C. T. Mosley, was superb. He is perhaps one of the best artists on the road today. E. S. Thomas, basso, has the deepest bass voice ever heard in Alliance, without doubt. He sings classical music as well as melodies, and is pleasing in both. — Alliance, O., Daily Review. Mr. J. S. Crabbe has one of the finest voices it was ever our pleasure to hear. — The Bee, Harris, Iowa. Mr. C. T. Mosley, the tenor of the company, has a delightful and well trained voice, and over and above his musical gifts, is a remarkable and very versatile actor, literally the master of smiles and tears. When singing a comedy part, he is a whole circus in himself. Yet his songs of sentiment are rendered with a simplicity, an earnestness, a pathos that makes them no less effective in another way. — Erie Times. Interest and attention were at their height as the bass soloist, E. S. Thomas, came on for his number. He has a commanding presence, and when he responded to his opening song, The Robber's Dream, with Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep, the audience was quietness complete to hear the attacking of the low tones which make this solo a masterpiece. Mr. Thomas plainly and with apparent ease produced the full round tones, and received the ovation accorded finished musicians. — Alliance, O., Daily Leader. Jan. 28, 1903. The tenor singing of C. T. Mosley was particularly good, and the male quartet was the best that Clyde people have listened to in a long time. — Clyde, Ohio. At Odd Fellows' Hall last night were billed Clarke and Anderson, magician and hypnotist. The latter being unable to appear a large program was thoroughly executed by Clarke, in which he mystified the audience with his surprising dexterity in handling cards, coins, eggs, etc., and feats requiring great skill. He also performed his new trick and bewitched bird seed, causing them to change to birds in full view of the audience. — Catonsville, Md., Circle. The tenor singing of Mr. C. T. Mosley fairly captured everybody. Mr. Mosley has an exceedingly fine voice, completely at his command and under his control. — Butler, Ind.
