matters of public policy. Mr. Darnell
added that it required from to

drunkenness was not a moral right,

GRAND OPERA 00.

Organization Booked at Illinois
This Week Strikes Bocks at j
There will be no grand opera In tie-
tri-cities this season. This announce
ment was made authoritatively today
by Manager William Klinck of the Il
linois. Mr. Klinck had booked the Na
tional Grand Opera company of Can
ada for the Llinois theatre for next
Thursday night. Despite the fact t:iat
the company was given an excelient
reputation wherever it appeared, and
was supposed to be strongly financed,
it struck the rocks at Denver. The,
company was disbanded, and the mem- !
bers thrown upon their own resource's. '
Many of these were left penniless, j
and a number of benefit performances j
were given in order to provide them '
with food and the necessary transpor-!
tation to return to their respective j
homes. There was some talk of reor- j
ganlzing and filling the engagements
as scheduled. Mr. Klinck and other '
managers, however, refused to enter-.
tain any proposition other than that
providing for the appearance of all the
stars. Many of these left Denver im
mediately after the crash.

AT THE ILLINOIS.
"The Girl of My Dreams" comes to
the Illinois tonight. It is an express
to Happyland. and a blending of pretty
girls with tuneful music, a bunch of
laughter tinged with just a touch of
sentiment. The scenic mountings of
the piece and the costuming are splen
did and appropriate, while the staging
of the ensemble numbers and novel
ties with which "The Girl of My
Dreams" abounds are unique and orig
inal. The book is by Wilbur D. Nesbtt
and Otto Hauerbach and music by
Karl Hoschna. The cast includes
Countess Olga von Hatzfeldt. Eda von
Luke, Roy Purviance, Irving Brook3,
Adele Boulai6e, Neil Burnes, Charles
Home, Ray Kehm, Frank McEwen j
and "W. D. Stone.
Did you ever hear of a colonel in the
United States army w ith a 50,000 men
crmmand? Perhaps you have and ;
didn't know where he is and what he
and this enormous force has done.
Well, he's Colonel Goet'aals. All this
big army don't belong to Uncle Sam's
gun department but they draw salary '
from the government The colonel
is boss and the men are builders of
the sreatest industrial job in the
world the Panama canal. Strange,
isn't It how much one person can do 1
without any pull or high Bounding
titles. Colcnel Goethals will soon be :
looking for other big things to do. He I H
has w orked himself out of his present j H
position by . making more progress ,

They figured that the big ditch would
be completed sometime in 1915. It's j
practically ready for buslneBa now. ;
Several American cities want the
colonel to manage their municipal at-;
fairs. One offers $30,000 annual sal-;
ary. It is said tbt when one sees the
moving picture reproduction of the
Panama can.il which Lyman II. Howe ;
is presenting in his travel festival j
coming to tae- Illinois tomorrow nisiu
1t is easy to understand what master
hand was necessary to direct the
enormous work. ,
AT THE EMPIRE.
The members of "The Runaways"
company, which comes to the Empire
todsy. are having a good laugh at the
expense of Jack West, a member of
the organiratkjn, over the fai'.ure of a
practical Joke intended to be played
upon, Earle Dewey, the star of the
company, but which reverted back in
a most unexpected manner. The male
members of the organisation were dis
cussing a holdup described ia the
morning dispatches of the newspapers
and Dewey boastfully stated he would
not quietly submit to a robber taking
his pocketbook and valuables without
putting up a struggle. Arter no naa
taken his departure one of the actors
suggested that they frame a scheme
to hold Dewey up oa his way to the
hotel after thst night's performance.
West volunteered to act as the high
wayman, while the other men were to
hide in the vicinity and give Dewey
the laugh after he had been relieved
of hts valuables. At 11 o'clock that
night, disguised as a bold, bad bandit,
West hid at the corner of a dark alley
and as Dewey approached stepped
out, leveled a 'prop" revolver and
shouted. "Hands up!" Deweys hands
did go up. but xne of them clutched
an automatic revolver which was
aimed at the amateur Jesse James.
