Pv Tho B. Y. university students, in
?&$ "Tho Beggar Studont," introduced a
gPH chorus to Salt Lako whloh took tho

ifljfM only a fow traveling choruses, which
flfl have visited us during the past season.
KRfB I confessed to somo misgiving when
H.p I went to "Tho Beggar Student." As
. a rule, an amateur chorus and tho
-, professional chorus also gets its
', throat chords so twisted as to disar
range tho singing machinery and
threaten tho oxposod ear-drums of a
J Bonsltlvo audience. I thought It would
J ho tho same with tho imported chorus
from Provo that there would bo a
violent disproportion betweon volumo
and quality. But, most happily, my
suspicions woro blown away by tho
first onsomblo efforts of tho evening.
Tho way thoso girls and boys put their
lips, throats and lungs into their work,
; . simply astonished mo. I rubbed my
, . eyes to see If thoy woro being de
ceived. Thoro was no deception, how
ever, tho Provo girls and boys wero
actually thero with tho vocal goods.
Professor Lund, who trained tho oho-
t rus, is entitled to much credit. But,
I after all, tho professor moroly applied
f ' tho polish tho Btudonts did tho rest.
I Provo is to bo congratulated on be
ing able to combine so much volco ma
terial In ono student organization.
Such opora companies as appeared in
"Tho Beggar Studont" will not have
to hog for futuro patronago in appre
ciative Salt Lako.
i 0 St
j "Tho Bulletin," a nowpapor pirate
; of San Francisco, noted as sailing In
tho gutters and cess-pools of indecent
journalism, is at last being forced to
haul down Its black flag. Somo of tho
advertisers of tho Captain Kldd sheet
aro getting together, and it looks like
a caso of making tho paper bo good
or walk tho plank.
All tho big theatres of San Francisco
w have withdrawn their patronago from
Si It, and, In their advertisements In
MlMMmmWE ' a'w"" ""WS
other journals, make tho announce
ment, "This theatre does not adver
tise in the EVenlng Bulletin." Thero
Is said to bo a great smashing of
crockery In tho counting room of the
Bulletin, and the manager of the sheet
is trying to pick up tho pieces. Fol
lowing tho example of tho theatres,
tho merchants aro moving against the
paper. Already tho skull and cross
bones have been lowered by tho Bul
letin, and tho old plrato is getting
down on his knees, crying for mercy.
Of course this kind of boycott can
happen in San Francisco. Tho people
in tho California metropolis have a
way of knocking tho knockers, which
Salt Lako poople should emulate.
Mrs. Flske handled the theatrical
trust without gloves in her recent lec
ture in Barratt Hall. It Is certainly a
pity than an actress of such ability
could not appear behind the footlights
of a Salt Lako play-house. Tho lady
is certainly undertaking a big war
fare, when she attempts to puncturo
tho trust with her actress hat-pin. Ac
cording to some, tho only cause for
disagreement between tho Theatrical
trust and tho Independents is a fall
ing out over percentages and certain
booking arrangements. This may
mean much or little, according to the
point of view. Klaw and Erlanger,
tho head of tho trust, however, pro
pose to fight the battle to the very last
theatric ditch. Tho Independents, like
tho Spartans, aro resolved to duel to
tho death. "Who will win? Why, Klaw
and Erlanger just, as suro as tho fig
ures in arithmetic. In tho old times,
tho defeated Spartans wero carried
homo on their shields. In these mod
ern days, tho Independents will turn
homo sorrowful, because of tho thea
tre doors being slammed In their faces.
Tho Grand theatre Is now under the
same management as tho Curtis
Street theatre of Denver. The same
general policy which governs the east
ern house, will bo carried out hero.
With tho retirement of Messrs. Jones
and Hammer from tho management
of tho house, a now schedule of admis
sion prices will go into effect. Thorald
Hammer, who has acted as treasurer
of tho Grand, Is tho local manager un
der the now arrangement.
Tho season at tho Salt Lako theatre
will closo next Friday and Saturday,
with T. D. Frawloy Tim Frawloy In
"Ransom's Folly." Frawloy was al
ways a popular actor with Salt Lako
audiences. Ho first came hero years
ago from Denver with an excellent
stock company, and opened tho Grand
theatre with Immense success. With
him wero Harry Corson Clarke, Madgo
Carr Cook and Victory Batcman, all of
whom have since won distinction as
stars. It was a famous organization
that old stock company, with Tim
Frawloy at its head. Since then, Vic
tory Batoman has gono out into tho
theatre world, and, while always as
suming leading roles, has had a career
tinged with much romance, checkered
with tho lights nnd shades of a varied
Sinco then, too, Harry Corson
Clarko, tho erratic comedian, has cir
cled tho globo and scattered laughter
In many lands. Madgo Carr Cook,
when she parted with Frawloy hero,
years ago, has been climbing the lad
dor and plucking laurels from high
places. She has just completed a suc
cessful season as tho star In "Mrs.
Wiggs of tho Cabbago Patch," while
her daughter, Eleanor Robson, in
"Moroly Mary Ann," triumphed In tho
two first cities of tho world Now
York and London. Finally, Tim Fraw
loy himself, since leaving Salt Lako,
in tho long ngo, has put a dramatic

plause from audiences in Now Zea

THE AMERICAN FLAG.
Wednesday, Juno 14, Is tho 128th
anniversary of the birth of the Amer
ican Flag. It is 128 years since Betsy
Ross, of Philadelphia, pieced the
stripes together and stitched the stars
on tho field of blue, after which she
turned tho now-born banner over to
General Georgo Washington. It is fit
ting that on this anniversary it should
float from every housetop; from every
window; from every pole. Lot tho
heaven-born colors glint in tho light of
tho morning and he gilded with tho
glow of the evening. It has a proud
history, that old banner. It has wavea
over fields where men fought for piin.
ciplo and not glory. It has been tho
banner of protection and not conquest.
It has fluttered over many lands and
on many seas and lias nover been low
ered in disgrace, but over in honor. It
has been tho flower of passion that
lighted the war-mad soldier to victory,
and tho last sight that greeted tho fast
closing eyo of tho stricken warrior.
It has flaunted its brilliancy over blood
stained decks and the dying mariner
lias passed to his rest cheered by a
last glimpso of its beauty. Wo ought
all to honor it, for in its stripes and its
stars is tho record of our country's his.
'Tis tho flng of tho free, not tho banner
It shall wave on and on 'til tho end of
And this star-spangled banner In tri
umph shall wave
O'er the land of tho free and tho homo
