Bi 12 GOODWIN'S WEEKLY
Hj i1 (Continued from Pago 9.)
K i a customer to "come through," was demonstrated
H; ; to the entire satisfaction of a very large audience,
j t' one in fact which filled the Salt Lake theatre on
V I Monday evening, when "The Million Dollar Min-
i t strel Show" given by the organization, took place.
M t Lack of space prevents an adequate notice of
Hj all of those who appeared or of the many features
H , which leased their friends, hut the performance
H j ' demonstrated that there is a great deal more
H i i amateur talent here than anyone knew anything
K about, just as the Kirmess of the week before sur-
B prised local theatregoers.

H The road show at the Orpheum is hardly a
H road show, but there is a lot of good stuff in it,
Hj and it starts right off the reel with the Arnaul
H ..Brothers, European tumbling clowns, whose musl-
H ' cal executions while bounding all over the stage
Hii in various acrobatic feats, are remarkable as well
Hjjl, as amiming.
H Felix and Caire in a humorous sketch called
B "The Runaway Kids," alternate between clever-
H')j ness and mediocrity, though the imitation given
Hi i by Felix of Richard Carle is a scream. He does
H not do so well as Billy Rock and his Fred Stonq
H' is impossible. But then who could imitate Fred
H' Stone's dancing? Little Felix, however, got away
Hi with a lot of songs and dances and business that
Hi would do credit to a much older performer.
H "Honor Among Thieves" is a great little
H sketch, well acted by George Leach, Kingsley
H Benedict, William Foran and Thomas Delmar. It
H is an ingenius situation, carefully thought out and
H nicely put together, and has provided a great deal
H of interest for Orpheum patrons during the week.
H Oscar Loraine, the Protean violinist, was best
H as the Gypsy "Rigo". His act could be shortened
to advantage, as jere-nro those in-the audience
H who worry durinL his performance in fear that he
Hl will not get it all out of his system.
H The Eight Palace Girls, whether they came
H! from the Palace or not, do as well as any eight
1' girls trained to the minute in a series of dances
m and their black and white costumes and stage set-
' tings proved very effective.
Hl Keller Mack and Frank Ortli, song writers, in
! . some old and new stuff, amused all of the people
some of the time and part of the people all the
H ' time, and the posing of Simone De Berryl was
Hl very interesting to everyone, though the real art
m 1st was the man behind the color effects,
t AH in all, it is a jry fair bill, though not the
K road show Martin used to send us, by any manner
ff! of means.
H "THE MAN OF THE HOUR."
It will bo a good many years before this in
M dlctment by George Broadhurst, of the political
game as it is played in the average American city
today, is passe.
Grand juries are about the only inducements
effective nowadays in eliminating graft and cor
ruption from the administration of municipal af
fairs in the majority of cities, and to date there
is no known preventative for the political ir
tr.igues that disgrace the average municipal gc
ernment. The fallacy of the supposition that
commission form of city government is much of
an improvement over other and more universally
used forms, has been pretty well evidenced here
at home this last month or so. The secret of the
long life of "The Man of the Hour" and its time
liness today, a half dozen years after its first
production, lies in the fact that Broadhurst
staged with absolute fidelity to actuality the es
sential features of the story of every political
ridden city council from Manhattan to the Gate.
It is a big production for a stock com
pany to attempt, and in its successful presenta
tion this week at the Garrick, another hit Las
been recorded for that house. The role of Ben
nett suits Mr. Durkin very well and he plays it
ad rably. Mr. Sumner is the play's Harrigan
and he puts the punch in the part. Miss Adair is
as winsome as can be and first and last it is a
There is a regular bill of popular priced
variety at the Empress this week. The sketch
given by Calvert Dean and Leta Price is as good
if not better than anything in the playlet line the
Empress has had in weeks. The repartee is
bright and the sketch sparkles with plenty of life
Al and Jack Gruet in their black face fun are
way above the average entertainers in their line.
Maglln, Eddy and Nichol do a turn or two on the
mat that compares favorably with the best in
comedy tumbling stunts. William J. Coleman is
about as funny as a broken leg.
Ruth Francis heads a company of a dozen
people presenting Joe Maxwell's one act musical
sketch, "A Night in a Police Station." The little
comedienne is very clever and with a capable
company supporting her, the playlet would be the
headliner it is billed. At present, however,
mediocrity is stamped all over the production.
"Erin's Isle" is a scenic sketch in four acts, in
which Hortense Searl sings "Killarney" and
"Come Back to Erin" charmingly. The sketch is
staged with a good deal of realism and is worth
the prominent place that has been given it on the
