0 THE MINSTRELS EAST MUHT o
George Evans' Minstrels always
draw a big house In Augusta, and
last night was no exception to the
rule. And they will contlnnue to draw
big hour.es ai? long as Mr. Evans keeps
up thc high standard he has attulned.
This year thc show is even better than
ever, for the company has been re
organized, thc best men kept .da
number of new voices and now danc
ers added, that add a great deal to
the general enjoyment.
Of course.-*lr. Evana Is the one and
only "Honey Boy"-who was out of
thc show on account of Illness-was
miBBod, for he has a peculiar style of
humor of his own that ls os delightful
as it is individual. But while he was
missed in tho monologue, his pluce
waa well supplied there hy Mr. Arthur
Rigby, who himself, is a clever mono
logist and who pleased th? audience
immensely, not only with his war map
ano his tais on me war, gut even
more in the second half of his mono
logue, which was extremely clever,
and with his remarkable dancing.
In the last act. witera Mr. "Lassen"
White took tho part usually ployed
by "Honey Hoy", as thc "Hull Fighter,"
ho wau not missed ut all, for Mr. i
White is fully as humorous and has
even moro striking and individual a
utyl0 of humor, abd nothing runnier
or bette l* han ever boon seen ou the
local stage in a minstrel performance
than his rendition or the "Bull Fight
er." Tile first part was also even
better than In past uuasons. The hand,
under Mr. Cupero's leadership, is the
best Evana has ever carried and ho
has sonto golden-voiced singers. The
established favorite, tho "Irish tenor."
James Meehan, who won so many
laurels last year with the company,
was lu splendid voice last night, and
made one or the greatest lilts of the
evening willi his beautiful rendition of
"When You Wore a Tulip and I wore
a Roso," This song received number
' One ot the best of the new talent
with tho company 'In Jim liberty,
who not only brought down the house
with his clever work as end man, but
who has one of the most delicious
voices ever heard here. His tenor
voice has a quality of melting sweet
ness that makes one feel ns If one
could listen forever to him, and his
songs, "i Hear You < ailing.ron-1
I?O3HO0," un?l "Undemow."li tho Water
melon Vieic." won? two of tb? ln'rtt I
nuiqbcra on the program. The Bhow
lia? the best dancing thia your they
liavo ever bad. nnil Tommy Hyde,
Willie Newsome and Rrigsby did some
wonderful dancing, although they
were not the only ones, as the com
pany has more than a dozen high
class dancer? with them. .
A feature that deserves especial i
mention Ia tho fine orcho3t;,nl nun:- j
hers played between the acts. -?lr. (
Cupero proved th0 versatility of his
orchestra hy giving a beautiful rendi- ,
tlon of Paglia CC I, which was followed :
by his famous "Memphis Blues" that,
us usual set the gallery crazy, though
the former wac what pleased the
lovers of good music In thc au
dience. Thc minstrel Is splendidly
Btagcd this season and all of the spec
ial features are good. Tho only way
thcro could he an improvement
would be to have more songs in the
first part, for all of the songs were
so good thnt lt made the audience
wish for moro. Kid on Duran was even
handsomer than over, in his female
impersonation, and pleased greatly.
There will doubtless ho two largo
audiences today and tonight at thc
Grand and those who go will find that
"Honey Hoy" Evans' Minstrels aro
f|iiltn up to their usual high stadard.
and in some respects hotter this' year
than overt oven if tho prince of min
strel mc ii is no tublc to do his part.

Made a Hit at the Palmetto

yest r oday and last nicht, presented
i>y Olliver's Uloom Killer?, was not
(?lily clean in every respect, but u
very creditable performance f'?r any
Tab. show to put on. All the different
members ot the troup' did their par
ticular stunt* very well indeed; thc
dancing of thc negro comedian sud
one cit Hi.' young Indies of the troupe
being exceptionally \>eii dune. Th"
Hinging ot tile trio was O. K. in every
respect; and tile antiea of thu black
faced comedian in attempting to
strike ?:fs "barbcr-sliop" chords, wer'
very ludicrous; however he always
hit the minor right in tin- eye. The
singing, dancing, ami acting of each ,
and ?-very one of the entire company
ol ghinni dlspcllcra was all that any
one could possibly expec t of a show
at anything like the price. Their cos
tumes were very pretty and tasty,
too. If they continue through th?
week UH they skirted out. they will
certainly make a lilt with the tlireatre
patrons of Anderson.

thc Ottoman capital is the big feature
of the war news, anil closely linked
with lt ia the sustained excitement
in (?reece incident to tho resignation
ol' the cabinet of M. Veuizelos. who,
deeming (?reece's entry into the hos
tilities on the side of the triple en
tente Imperative, could not agree
with his king and resigned.
From the number nf ships engaged
and the size and range of the guns,
the hattie of the Dardan? iles is un
like anything in history, according to
naval experts. At 21,000 yards, tho
hugo battleship Queen Elizabeth, of
the liritish squadron, assisted by
smaller ships, still is hurling shells
across the (Gallipoli Peninsula into the
Turkish strongholds on the Asiatic
Bhcre. The admiralty statement car
ries the operations through Sunday
and admits that the Turks not only
scored three minor hits on the Queen
Elizabeth, hut that most ^f the ships
inside the straits, both French and
Hritish, were struck. None was sunk
and there were no casualties.
The Turkish forts Fumlli Madji
dieth Tabla and Hamidieth Tabla,
fringing the Asiatic shd-o line, were
silenced, as was the Mount Dardanus
battery farther south. The Turkish
casualties are not known.
A Turkish official statement from
Constantinople, issued prior to the ad
miralty statement tonight, insisted
that the fighting In the Dardanelles
was devel-iplng in favor of the Turks.
It was stated that no batteries were
being tiest'-oyed and that the hostile
ships were forced to retreat.
Aeroplanes, taking wing from the
decks of the besieging craft, are play
ing a notable part In the operations.
One liritish machine became unman
ageable and dove into the sea and
another was hit by thc Turkish guns
Comparative calm seemed to pre
vail on the western front and In Yu
An air raid by liritish flyers on the
Cern?an submarine base at Ostend,
Ilelgium. was announced by the ad
miralty tonight. Six machines parti
cipated and returned safely. What
damage they Inflicted is not known.
Ono of the most pisturcsquc hits'
of thR day's news ls a report from
nucliurcst, Rumania, that Former Sul
tan ( Abdul Humid, of Turkey, has re
gained his freedom and is gathering
his friends and supporters around
him. It is asserted that he mav seek
