H TRIUMPH FOR HARTMANN.
J Hartmann'- playing of tho Tschal-
HJ. kowsky D major concerto, a work of
HJ tho utmost technical dlfllculty, In
HJ which every possibility of the solo in-
HJ i strument Is exploited to tho full, es-
HJ tabllshcd at once his claim to high
HJ artistic rank. Ho was not only a mas-
HJ ter of technique, but as well a poet
HJ whose appreciation of tho varying
HJ moods and phases of tho composer's
HJ invention was shown in the eloquent
HJ exposition which ho gavo the work.
HJ In contrast to tho big effects of tho
HJ first and last movements, his rendition
HJ of tho sighing sweotness of tho an-
HJ dante was marked with an admirable
Hi Arthur Hartmann, a player of much
HJ power and originality gave tho Tschal-
HJ kowsky Concerto in D major for vio-
HJ lin and orchestra, and his wonderful
HJ; bundling of the bow, especially In tho
HJ.' extremely difllcult concluding "vivacls-
HJr slsm," was thoroughly appreciated by
HJ tho very largo audience. He was
HJ compelled to glvo an encore. Phlla-

HJ Herr Hartmann will appear at the
HH Congregational church in this city on
HB Tuesday evening, Jan. 29, under the
HJ auspices of tho University of Utah.
HI SIX SPECIALTIES AT THE
H Next week's bill at tho Orpheum
HH comprises features that glvo promiso
HH of providing an unusually enjoyable
HH evening's entertainment: On tho pro-
HH gram nro six specialties, not lnclud-
HH1 ing the klnodromo moving pictures,
HH and no two of tho performances aro
HH anything alike. The rango is a wido
HH one, and each person In the audience
HH will doubtless find some, if not all,
HH exactly to his or her liking.
HH "Tho Hazardous Loop," an act in
HH which Lillian Chick, after cleverly ma-
HH Delivering on a bicycle, takes her life
HH in her hand and loops tho loop, Is dan-
HH gerous to tho performer and thrilling
HH to all beholders. It is a dare-devil
HH trick that but very few young girls
HH would care to indulge In. Ten Kck,
HH who at ono time was the manager of
HH Johnson, tho champion bicycle rider,
HH Is filling a similar ofllco for Miss
HH "Tho Boll of Jay town" will Intro-
HJ ( duco to tho audience two clover come-
HJ dlans, in tho persons of Sutherland
HH and Curtis, both aiMstic entertainers.
HH Tho Xylophono Is an instrument
HH that has come to bo appreciated In
HH Salt Lake, and Mile. Esmeralda is an
HH expert player of that melodious music
HH Next appear tho "Troubadours,"
HBr three well appearing singers of choico
HH selections; male voices all, than
HH1 which there is nothing sweeter In tho
HHj vocal line, nor In any other music, for
HH that matter.
HHj Anna Chandler comes highly rccom-
mended as possessing a sweet voice
Hlil and being .n Inimitable Imitator, in
HjJ song and manners, of certain colebrl-
W ties: Fay Temploton's rendition or
"Mary is a Grand Old Name" is sung
In splendid mimicry by Miss Chandler,
as are other songs by other singers.
Charles Do Camo and his dog
"Cora" will furnish a raro perform
ance, tho canlno displaying intelli
gence that is supposed to belong only
to man. Tho Httlo fox-terrier has
made tho rounds of tho old world nnd
tho now and Is a marvel to all who
have witnessed tho almost incredu
lous things that it does at tho behest
of tls master.

Vaudeville's Peerless Singing Trio at the Orpheum Next Week
"Monto Crlsto," which will bo seen at
tho Salt Lako theatre next Tuesday
and Wednesday evenings and Wednes
day matlneo with James O'Neill In tho
title role, a part which he has filled
almost flvo thousand times. Tho
gorgeousness of scenery, costumes,
properties and electrical effects vies In
this production with tho strength of
tho acting, and tho ensemble is said
to bo a rovelatlon to theatre-goers.
No part of it has been slighted, but
tho great scenes, or course, aro tho
storm that closes tho second act, tho
ball room In tho fourth act and tho
duel scene in tho last. These have
been given effectively before, but
never with so much affluence, more
especially In tho matter of light ef
fects, than with this presentation. Tho
splendor of tho ball room scene Is Im
posing, with lavish display of gold,
brilliantly Illuminated. But even
rot n striking aro tho swift transi
tions of light in the last act.
MADE ITSELF RIDICULOUS.
In an effort to roast the Orpheum
management last week our "steamed"
contemporary makes itself ridiculous
by bewailing tho fact that tho Road
Show Is not coming to Salt Lako this
month. After throwing all kinds of
bouquets at tho Road Show, it pro
ceeds to roast a road show act, Tho
Ushers, who apcared in "Tough
Love," referring to them as lemons.
Tho fact of the matter Is that while
The Ushers were here tho real Road
Show was playing one-night stands In
Southern California wltn tho bill cut
down and Tho Ushers were sent on
to Salt Lako to pick up tho Road
Show again this week. Then a list of
San Francisco attractions was given,
with the wall, "Why doesn't Salt Lako
get them?" Tho salt Lake Orpheum
has-already had Wynne Winslow and
the Three Lelghtons. Tho Eight Vas
sar Girls are coming In tho near fu
ture, together with tho other attrac
tions named. In no caso does tho en
tire bill move along from ono house
to the other on tho Orpheum circuit,
with tho possible excoptlon of occa
sionally Los Angeles and San Fran
cisco. Tho acts aro jumped all over
tho country and sooner or later they
visit every house on the circuit.
Willard K Welho Is now In Chicago
getting some new orchestrations prior
to his return as leader of tho Orpheum
orchestra early next month, all of
which will be gladsome news for the
patrons of the popular vaudeville
Tho rising tide In tho box-ofllce of
tho Salt Lake theatre Indicates that
tho classic drama, when taken at tho
flood, still leads on to fame and for
tune. That Mr. Crane and hia com
pany In tho flno old comedy, "Sho
Stoops to Conquer," is forcing, us to
sit up and take notice is a matter for
congratulation on both sides of foot
lights. In these exciting days of lu
rid molodrama, problem plays and
show-girl advertisements, the better
and more elevating things of the stago
aro either shamefully neglected or
heedlessly thrown aside. Tho appre
ciation to which wo can arise when
worthy opportunity presents itself
.as In tho present Crane engagement
shows that while our taste may often
i be frivilous it will not remain persist
ently foolish. "Sho Stoops to Con
quer" is said to have been written by
Goldsmith as a protest against the
coarse and vulgar dramas of his day.
Then, as now, a flood of sensational
plays exploited the seemy sldo of life
. and held tho mirror close against tho
foibles which were the shame of men
and women. Tho stage not only pan
dered to a low moral standard but was
even an active agent In further low
ering the ethics of the times. Small
wonder tnat "Sho Stoops to Conquer"
worked a healthful redemption and In
jected a new codo of stago morals
into the English drama ono
hundred and fifty years ago. His- )
torically, as well as on its own merits,
the Goldsmith play Is full of meat
