Wic will surely lose faith in the abili-
H ty of the eastern critic to judge of the
merits of a production if this t'.img
keeps up. "The Yankee Regent"
P came to the Salt Lake theatre the
fore part of the week, and proved a
h bitter disappointment, despite the
B certificate of good character given
H it by the critics of the effete cast,
H while "The Alaskan," which was con-
H dcmn'cd by the same crowd, was "all
H to the good," in the opinion of rcsi-
dents of this city. Barring a few
H specialties, "The Yankee Regent" is
H a very tame affair. There arc a few
H passable songs, notably "Childhood
H Days," by Clara Bcrger, who has a
H passable voice but is shy on acting
H qualities; "Dancing Sal," by Lyons
H and his sailors the sailors having the
M long cud of the honors; "Alary Jane,"
H by Elsie Herbert and chorus; "The
H Lillics in the Pond arc Not for Me,"
1 by Toby Lyons; and "The Wishes,"
M by Lyons, Collins, Smith and Bur-
H ton." The last named was probably
M the most popular song of the entire
m performance. A good deal of the
H work of the much advertised ioby
j Lyon was of the low comedian order,
Ht his "unfinished poems" being the
H best part of his performance. The
H chorus was in keeping with the rest
(of the company.
I- Mr. and Mrs. John T. Powers in
j their comedy skit "The Players," and
I the McLinn Brothers, horizontal bar
H artists, arc the favorites at the Lyric
H 1 this week in an array of vaudeville
H talent that is far above that of last
H week. John Walsh, "the man with
H the hod," has also been accorded a
H generous measure of applause from
m the Lyric patrons. Mabell Meeker,
H in a singing, dancing and acrobatic
fl contortion feat; Homer Long, bari-
M tone; Harland and Rollison, musical
B novelty artists, and the moving pict-
M ures, fill out the program, will ' is

It is announced that the "Tom
Show," in which members of the Press
club won fame if not fortune, is to
be revived, the date being set for
December 5, and the Salt Lake Thea
tre, of course, the place where the
celebrated footlight artists will- hold
forth. New jokes and new songs
arc to be sprung upon the public for
the first time, the heavy men of the
company being John D. Spincer,

II. A. Culmcr, Martin Mulvey, George
E. Carpenter, Ed. .Penrose, George

Lake theatre the first half of next
week, has received such favorable
comment on the role, and is so identi
fied with playing parts of royalty, that
i would be hard for him to assume
r.ny other role. In his many years on

of the grand opera to the present
form of light opera, Mr. Ragland

regions and climes. He has played

Mr. Ragland is of the Italian scnool
of operas and his great strength of
voice and character is shown to a
'marked degree in the second act.
