It Is believed that tho differences
which arose between Madame Alapal,
the soprano soloist of tho Hawaiian
band and J. C. Cohen who Is to take
tho band on tour have been amicably
(arranged. A conference was held
this morning. It Is understood that
mutual concessions wero made, and
"I. think Madame Alapal takes an en

I am sorry for It," said Captain Berger
speaking of the hitch In the plans for
tho tour of tho band caused by her
demand for largely Increased pay for
herself and salary und expenses for
her husband to accompany her.
"As members of tho band wo have
some obligations to the community,"
he continued. "The position Is this:

BY ASHTON STEVBNS IN THE EXAMINER.
Did you over see the Etleford Company, which is playing nt Oakland's
Mncdonough rnienter this week In "The Prince of Patches?" Think It
over. Don't say "yes" too quickly. You may have only heard of It. I
knew that I had been hearing of the Ellefords lo these many years, and
frequently would run across one of their ingenuous ads In a country pa
per. I fancied that Mr. Elleford himself must bo some kind of a rus
tic John Drew, emulating the simple life of Creston Clarke. I won
dered when wo should meet, but he nnvor came to San Francisco, and
oven Oakland knew him not (not to my knowledge) till ttu? week ho
enmo lo tho Mncdonotigh, there to give tho first dramatic performance
In either of the two principal bay counties since the fire.
I went lo tho Macdonough with the responsibilities of an historian
on my shoulders. True, Oakland had offered some vaudovlllo sinco
tho San Frnnclsco theaters were wrecked, but tills was tho first play,
tho first attempt to rehabilitate tho Drama. And I was the official
hlstorlo-graphcr! Be still, anxloim heart!
The man in the box office took my money, Justus In the olden days
a dollar for two seats. Tho prices wero ten-twent-thlrt, but these
were the only seats left, and wero In a box. A real usher, guvo me a
real programme tjlls tlrst printed one I had scon since Caruso at tho
Grand changed the title of Bizet's "Carmen" to "Don Jose." There
at tho top of It In high black top was the nnmb of Etleford. But where
was Elleford In tho "cost of characters?" Nowhere.
I asked tho usher If this was
pany, and ho told mo to bet my
"But whore's Mr. Elleford the actor?" I demanded.
"There ain't no Elletord the actor; he Just manages."
And thero went tho Illusion of a lifetime. My legend was dissipat
ed. A manager! Why, the streets of San Francisco and Oakland aro
full of 'em.
A good little orchestra, in the percussion department In which I
recognized San Francisco's Labor party Supervisor S. Davis, played
good cheerful little music; and prosontly tho curtain lifted to roveal
curiously youthful players and a curiously youthful melodrama. 6
I never had seen an adult company quite so young; thoro was O
hardly n member but did not look as though ho or sho had been kid-

just made for them. g
And what a house it was! Literally packed; volcanically cnthusi-

had heard of tho morning of April ISth, when the greatest melodrama Q
of all tlmo was played, a melodrajna besido which Nero's Rpman X
