\vas seen at the American theater last
Tiiclit he would have written a comedy

we would still be waiting for it. So !
as theatricals, like nature, are com- ;
p«-nsa tin^r. we should rejoice, perhaps.:
that bis coniedy is no better than it is. !
for it is surely too funny to miss and I
•\u25a0rrtiiinly good enough for a mirthful \
evening at the theater. It Is as witty j
and breezy and unusual as George Ade's
"< <jpy" always is.

a George Adc comedy, as there is in :
\u25a0 a .Cohan pif<*e. than in most of the ;

u;id nobody wants to se«*. There is
. action and- dialogue in "Just Out of

i>si.-.s which when they are finally and
. i>»'SM prpjsF-ntfd will be the leaders in

"Just Out of College," Bit
of Rarely Witty Comedy
Three popular performers now appearing in city's theaters..
ADELA VERNE HAS
LOST NONE OF ART
Girl Pianist Who Captured San
Francisco Returns as Great
as Before
Walter Anthony
It seems to me that Adela Verne has
turned tigerish since she crept quietly
to our shores a year .ago and then
pounced victoriously on the east. She
crouches over her grand piano, and
dashes furiously at fortes; she purrs
over her pianlsslmos; her fingers be
come velvety and soft, hiding claws of
steel to rip, when she wills .It, the
heart of music bare.
I do not think she is a bigger mu
sician than she was when, she played
for us last season at Century hall and
surprised San Francisco with her skill
and emotional depth. Indeed, It seemed
at times that she has reached the self
conscious period wherein, • after sur
prising others with her messages, she
begins to surprise herself. But she
surely held her audience yesterday at
Christian Science hall in the grip of
her powerful spell, and she played a
program that for variety of oxpression
and beauty could scarcely be. excelled.
Her first number: was Beethoven's
variations, 32 In number. They are.
not variations at all. but thematic de
velopment of a musical thought — pro
jections of a simple melody through the
range and possibilities "of a modern
grand piano. This work alone stamps
Miss Verne as a great interpreter of
the classics. \u0084 Following was the Men
delssohn scherzo, with its elfin trumpet
motif, deliriously played by the ar
tiste, who had to repeat the piece. An
old fashioned Gluck melodle led ab
ruptly' into Brahms* rhapsodic, op. 79,
No. 2,, which was not, written for dainty
hands or fragile souls; r ;but'is"big.and
broad, disturbing and. f somber, like
murky clouds against a midwinter
moon. I liked Miss Verne best in this
number and. in the "Hunting Song'
from the Schumann forest scenes.
Miss Verne presents the anomoly
which, perhaps, only a' woman can do.
She plays the big things, the mascu
line compositions, with'so much ..weight
and force that you are amazed' when
she attempts with equal' success the
rippling music of Scarlatti or "the-flut
tering and tonally elusive "Vpgel als
Prophet," by Schumann. \u25a0
A caution would :'. not 'be' amiss to
avoidsuch "Battlejof Waterloo'" music
as she gave' 'to ! great" applause
after the Schumann numbers. I -be
lieve it was an- imitation- of the , wind,
but I've forgotten the composer's, name
and will not disturb ..myself, about
learning it. The selection sounds like
a minor version of "Nearer My God to
Thee" being "whistled down the wind,"
and is arrant imitation music. Her
Handel minuet, played as another en
core, was splendidly done, and her last
number, "Polonaise," in X major,:. by
Liszt, drew another .enthusiastic, recall,
which the player graciously responded
to.' » '\u25a0 H';~V
There were many floral "offerings to
Miss Verne and an .impromptu recep
tion after the program was; over. -

IRISH PLAY MAKES
HIT AT VALENCIA
Arthur Cunningham Scores Suc
cess in Character of Rollick
ing Song of Erin
Arthur,Cunningham's good voice and
his bubbling native wit would make
one almost forget that he is looking at
a play when attending the Valencia this
week. There is "Shaun Rhue" and
"Larry Donovan," but it is Cunning
ham himself -that one sees there. The
play might have been written for. him,
so smoothly and easily does he carry
the part of the rollicking 'lrish bhoy.
"Shaun Rhue" is the kind of a play
that extolls the primitive virtues and
shows how villainy was punished In
the days of our fathers, before trusts
and other varmints were known. In
those days, in ould Ireland at least, the
rich rogues with their foine silk
breeches and ruffles, were j always
downed in the end by the simple, hon
est lad with the stout heart. :
Such a lad is I^arry. Donovan — a light
hearted, singing, , laughing and loving
countp- lad, whose father, driven to
desperation by the water which' making
a bog of. his land, would marry his
daughter to a rich blackguard, and
when Larry would,,intcrfere drives him
from the. door. V -:*..:
But Larry's redy wit finds a way to
foil a fine plot by the rich man's son,
and in the disguise of "Shaun Rhue,"
"from the north," finds the | way, back
to his father's heart and sweeps the vil
lainous rich man's son out of the door.
"Shaun Rhue" will make you laugh
and cry by turns, and if you're fond of
a good weep you'll enjoy Cunningham
in that famous old song, "Just a Hand
ful of Earth." The company is good
and Grace Travers, a new actress, wh'o
plays Kate Donovan, Larry's sister, is
also clever. \u25a0 ' . -:\u25a0' . \u25a0

HALL M'ALLISTER
IS A HIT AT HOME
Gifted Son of San Francisco
Returns as Actor of Merit
in Clever Play
Is Star, Feature of Unusually
Good Bill at Orpheum
This Week
Hair McAllister returns to his own
San Francisco ; as, an actor of real
merit. . When he appeared at the Or
pheum : yesterdayc' afternoon* in the
sketch, VThe Girl' of "The :Times,'-": Times,'-" he
was welcomed his many friends in
the audience and |he proceeded' forth
with to show them that lie co|ild' make
good. Different from most of the skits
in' the vaudeville" houses, his vehicle
really has a plot worth while.
The playlet has to do with a pros
perous bachelor (that's McAllister) and
a clever newspaper woman (that's Miss
Catherine Cameron). He loses hisi keys
in the street, and she, noting his name
and address on the; ring, enters the
house to commit a burglary— just to
make a sensational story, that will give
her prominence in the journalistic:fir
mament. Of course he apprehends her,
but she . Insists she As ; just creating a
story for' her paper' and intended to
return the silverware.
He has called the police. About the
time she has convinced him of her real
purpose he decides'to send her-to the
police station just as a lesson. She
strikes 'th^ climax by getting the dropf
on him with his. pistol as the officers
break into the rooirj. She turns . him
over as the burglar and immediately
begins to jot down the, details in her
notebook.
MofcUlister is natural and at home , in
his role. There - is ; no straining for
effect, and in consequence this ;tal
, ented native of California brings back
i withJiim one of the best playlets seen
at fhe Orpheum. mi months. ;
George W. Leslie and "company this
week present "The Naked Truth."- Les
lie is fully as good as he was when he
appeared at the Van Ness ;ia ".Wood
land." He .appears: as .'a Scotchman in
the present musical comedy in love with
a girl with money, Miss Lillian, Law
son, who has put aside her true sailor
' lad.. A magic image of Truth causes
the person telling a ,lie to be. divested
of an article of clothing for each lie
as told, arid in consequence the Scotch
man and the lass are the principles in
a disrobing act that is a study,- In dl
rectoire lingerie and bathing suits.
Raymond and Caverly.who appeared
at the Grand theater.' about four years
ago in some Roger* brothers' shows,
have not fully recovered trom. the
Weberfleldian mania. They have some
wholesome fun with Redwood City,
but the audience remembers that Kolb
and Dill are just next door in the Prin
cess theater outdoing^ Weber and Field
themselves. \u25a0 \u25a0'\u25a0\u25a0'.: \u25a0
The four Orans and their fox- ter
rier do a good acrobatic act, and the
motion pictures showing one of the big
baseball games between Chicago and
Detroit are worth seeing.
The ", holdovers are William Morrow
and Verda Scheilberg, in VHappy's Mil
lion," Staley and Birbeck's "Musical
Blacksmiths." Tom Welch, Sig Mealy
and Ed Montrose In "Play Ball" and
Lew Hawkins, "The Chesterfield, of
minstrelsy." They round out an ex
cellent bill. ; •

/ ' \u25a0...\u25a0..- '-mr :
- Searchers scoured the fields and for
est-in the vicinity of the county jail
yesterday and last night hunting for
Samuel 'H. Taylor,- the convicted 'mur
derer, who escaped Saturday afternoon,
but -up to a late hour last night he
had not been 1 captured.*.; Taylor's es
cape was • discovered five minutes after
he had crawled through a window in
the kitchen- at the jail, after sawing
through the steel bars.
When the prisoners were- placed In
line at 6 o'clock Saturday afternoon to
be counted Taylor's absence was noted.
It was at first: believed that he might
have been - detained-, in the kitchen,
where he had been working ofi account
of extra meals furnished on that day
to officials and visitors. Guard Mc-
Greevy went back to the kitchen to
look-for him and saw the twisted bars
in the window. He gave the alarm
and after the. prisoners had been locked
In' their cells, the prison guards seized
their rifles .and/ started on/the man
hunt." ...
>The, investigation conducted yester
day by Deputy Sheriff Heggerty, who
is -in charge 1 , of "the county jail during
Sheriff 'Dolan's absence from the city,
developed^ the fact that Taylor \ had
sawed through the bars with an or
dinary meat saw. The window through
which he escaped faces the north and
it is believed: that he jumped to the
ground and "scaled the fence .while the
prisoners were marching In to the main
corridor to be locked up for the*nlght:
Laborers who were working in a field
saw Taylor when he scaled the prison
wall and ran toward Sutro forest, and
they fled in frignt rrom the field near
the county jail. Tho jail ; officials be
lieve, that Taylor had assistance from
other prisoners.' V
Taylor was not garbed In prison
stripes when he made his escape. Chief
Biggy was informed. of the escape and
asked to notify his men to watch out
for ' Taylor. - •. ; \u25a0 ;
1 Taylor was awaiting the outcome of
his: appeal from the' sentence of 20
years imposed by Judge Cook for the
murder of • Jacob Grossman in Bootz's
camp in the Mission road last February.
A stay in the sentence ' had been
granted by Judge Cook. Taylor is 27
years old, a native of Red Top,' Tex..

RESCUERS IN MINE
DIE IN HEROIC WORK
Further Details From Utah Hor
ror Bare Deeds, of Bravery
. by Miners
Three Fall Before Intangible
Foe; Comrades, Undaunted,
Plunge After Them
LAKE. Utah, Nov.. 22A— Details
of the death of four men in the work
ings of the Utah copper, company's mine
at : Blngham : ; yesterday "emphasizes the
reckless : heroism with which the last
three" victims fought their losing fight
with an invisible, intangible foe — dead
ly powder gas.
When the day shift withdrew It was
known that one Italian miner, Doiai
iiick Shatto, lay unconscious and prob
ably lifeless, in one of the mine levels,
where he had gone in the performance
of his duty. Another miner was
thought to be missing. Knowing the
peril, for he had led more than one
rescue party into gas filled levels, Fore
man F. Kent Smith started down an
incline tunnel,^followed. by Hugh Burns
and George * Wilson, two shovelmen.
They did not return. Other mine em
ployes a reasonable time and
then ventured into the tunnel after tak
ing the precaution to tie ropes to their
waists. The ropes saved their lives,
for tj«6 first inhalations of the foul air
robbed them of their strength and
when . dragged back to the surface
they, were unconscious.
Not until a hose carrying a powerful
current of air had been provided were
the rescuers able to make their fight
effective.- Foot by foot the hose was
advanced, new men momentarily tak
ing the places of their fainting, com
rades, and the fatal gas -was slowly
driven out of the incline. -;«V.o
Smith and his companions were found
where "they had fallen in their desper
ate struggle to regain the outer air.
Shatto was found later. He had been
dead for .hours. The second missing
Italian was not in the mine.
Smith and Burns leave families. Wil
son was a single man.
