That the Union Pacific will reopen

It was thought that tho decision
against the railroad by tho Unitod
States circuit court of appeals and the
passage of the bill introduced by Con
gressman Norria of Nebraska had
finally concluded the railroad's claim
to the 400-foot right of way, comprom

of dollars were involved in the original

It Is stated that the Union Pacific
will carry tho caso to the United

which limited the right of way to 200
feet instead of 400 feet.

The "Honey Boy" rr.inistrels, who
come to tho Keith next Wednesday
evening, have no superiors in tho min
strelsy line. A general discription of
tho evening's entertainment is as fol

Lee, Tommy Hyde, Jack Kenney nnd
Raymond Mnxson; Singers James Meo
han, Jim Doherty, JoEeph Gillespie and
others. Tuneful oldtime melodien and
the latest popular song hits are among
the vocal selections rondored. "I Want
to Hear an Irish Band Play on St.
Patrick's Day," the song hit of tho
Friars' Frolic, brings this opening to
on epic finish.
"De Go Lightly Guards' Reception,"
is the pretontious afterpiece and is
said to bo the best farcical sketch ever
written by the inimitable "Honey Boy."
Its book, lyrics nnd music nro from his
pen; "Cicoro Didimus Jones" is tho
nomenclature given him as a roustabout
darky, and when later, mainly becauso
of hunger and partly because of n bribe
of two dollars, ho impersonates "Gen
eral Wof Woof," a valient African
military loader, ho is said to stir up a
maelstrom of mirth. "Do Go Lightly
Guards" and "Tho Daughter of tho
Regimont," tho last being rendered by
Charles Hilliard, the clever and artistic
delineator of an alluring octoroon beau

nnd Sam Lee are tho center of its ridi
culous situations. It shows a moonlight
picture of a girls' seminary in the
Southland with tho dusky belles nnd
their tatterdemalion beaux romping and
singing. "Tho Boys Wo Lovo" nnd
"When tho Old Town. Clock Strikes
Nine," its song numbors wero written
by tho "Honoy Boy." The eccentric
dancing of Raymond Maxson is ouu of
its snlient features.
