THE TOPEKA DAILY STATS JOUl?AESATURD AY EVE2TIHG-, NOVEMBER 10,1903.
rrV-Xfe ? Arthur Pryor's first appearance in Topeka as a band leader will be made at the Grand opera house next Tues day, when he will be heard in two con certs, presenting his fine organization of fifty musicians, including Miss Stella fThomas, contralto, and Mr. Simone Jvlantla who will render soios on an instrument known as the Pryorphone. Arthur Pryor first came into promi nence as trombone virtuoso, with Sousa's band and soon came to be known as the wizard of that instru ment. During- the earlier tours-of the Sousa organization, the young artist received several royal summonses to appear before European rulers, and when the illness of the black-bearded band master necessitated his tempo rary retirement, Arthur Pryor was se Jected to wield the baton over the Sousa aggregation. 'It was in this capacity and on the tour which covered all the foreign capitals that Pryor's great ability as a conductor came to be recognized. , On bis return to America, where his new found fame had preceded him, several music-loving capitalists, waxing en thusiastic over his foreign conquests, organized and financed his brilliant military band. That was over three years ago, and since that time, Ar thur Pryor and his band have come to be known as the, best organization of its kind in America. Mr. Pryor in Jiis endeavor to kee his band on a purely national basis has adhered strictly to his original determination to recruit" his men from American talent exclusively. Military bands as a rule attract nearly exclusively lovers of that class of entertainment only, but in the case of the Pryor band lovers of all forms of theatrical and musical performances find healthy and satis factory recreation, largely from the reason . that legitimate concert forms cnly one portion of an evening with Arthur Pryor and his band. The sec ond portion of the programme dis closes the patriotic musical spectacle, The Triumph of Old Glory," an al legorical, military, musical and histor ical history of vital Interest to all Americans. The programmes for Tuesday's con certs will be: AFTERNOON.

Ezra Kendall, popular with Topeka audiences, comes Monday night in a comedy called "Swell Elegant Jones." Arthur Pryor, one of the foremost bandmasters of the world, comes Tues- Ezra Kendall in "Swell Elegant Jones." day night, and Jane Kennark, who has been seen In Topeka in Blanche Bates' "Under Two Flags," comes again on Friday night in Viola Allen's recent New York success, "The Toast of the Town." The much-talked of "Wonderland" comes to Topeka for the first time on Monday evening, No vember 2 6. "Swell Elegant Jones" was written for Mr. Kendall by Herbert Hall Wins low who wrote Mr. Kendall's laughing success. The inegar - Buyer, in which he was playing upon the occa sion of his last visit to Topeka. tewell Elegant Jones" is a million aire, not by birth but through kind Providence and an investment in a mine. He is called away to look af ter his mining interests, and the first scene opens after his return. A former admirer of Mrs. Jones, a plotting lawyer. learns that Jones has become penniless and that Mrs. Jones is about to fall heir to a large fortune left by an uncle; he schemes to sepa rate Jones and his wife. He places Jones in compromising situations, with the assistance of a female detec tive, and persuades Mrs. Jones of his unfaithfulness, who starts proceedings for a divorce, furnishing opportunity to develop several amusing situations and clever repartee during the re maining acts. Mr. Kendall is not the finest com edian we have at present, but in a race for position as the most popular comedian he would stand an excellent "show," because there Is a personal quality In his work which makes everyday people regard him affection ately. He has acquired all the me chanical helps to the actor, of course, but his work seems spontaneous and natural, and If he hasn't a heart of gold, every feature of his work be lies him. Among the people with Mr. Kendall are Charles Mylott, Harmon MacGre gor. Douglas Joss. William McKay, George Neville,. George T. Welch, Genevieve Blinn, Grace Gibbons, Caro line Eckert, Mat Wells and Margaret Shaw. One of its most important attrac tions of the season is "Wronderland," the musical fantasy, by Victor Her bert. Glen MacDonough and Julian Mitchell, authors of "Babes In Toy land." Eight princes, who live in an enchanted castle, by the love philters of Dr. Reuben Fax. a specialist in af fairs of the heart, win the affections of eight charming daughters of the King of Hearts. The incidents that follow are numerous and interesting, and the scenes range from Dr. Fax's cottaee in the king's park, a sauare where the houses make fiees and a lake by the enchanted castle to the ballroom of the castle itself. The role of Dr. Fax Is played by Little Chip, the dimutlve comedian ....: ' .-rff ,:; . . 1 :'.::.'.;:':.. t 1 i ' i - '. - t ! ':' " ' '! , '' , f ! : )'. ' - - i' " ' ? 'I -f - who was here last as the private In Hoyt's "A Ml!k White Flag." Little Chip's real name is SamCornbloom. He stands about four feet high, and admits that sixteen of his twenty-two years have been spent in the glare of the footlights. His first effort was a Dutch comedy stunt in vaudeville. Shortly after his debut he went to England with his father. In that country he attracted general notice by his mimi cry of Albert Chevalier and the coster song, "The Little Nipper." Upon his return to America, Little Chip becarrle associated with the Harlan-Dunne-Wells stock organization. The part of Dr. Fax in "Wonderland" was writ ten around him by Glen MacDonough. Mary Marble, who shares stellar honors with Little Chip, playing as Phyllis, a country girl, comes of the famous Marble family of actors. She was a cousin of the late Joseph Jef ferson and grand niece of Boston's dis tinguished comedian, William Warren. Her uncles. John, Ed and Billy at tained considerable reputation as ac tors, and her father, Dan Marble, was quite an important character In his day. Perhaps the most conspicuous of Miss Marble's early successes was the orphan in "A Milk White Flag." She was with the Harlan-Dunne-Wells company for a time, starred with Lit tle Chip in "Babes in Toyland" season before last and visited Topeka about a year ago as Nancy Brown in the musical comedy of the same name. Comparisons are odius, but it can truthfully be said that Mr. Sanford B. Ricaby need not apologize for the man ner in which he has perpetuated the West name in minstrelsy, says the Du luth News Tribune. The show has a. strong singing first part, a good olio, an orchestra that pleases and one of the best bands that has ever visited this city. The costumes are all new and bright and the show is apparently starting out on another successful sea son. Mr. Wright's "Somewhere," Mr. Mitchell's laughing song, Mr. Renoud's Robin Hood selection and Mr. Bren nan's singing are far above the aver age. "A Bunch of Keys" is a screaming, screeching comedy, brimful of excite ment, laughter and enjoyment. It was written in Hoyt's best vein and the years have not dimmed its brilliancy. Edward R. Salter claims to have in corporated into his latest farcical cre tion "Ikey and Abey," a large amount of the cleverness and bright scintil lating wit that has made his former productions so successful. In melodrama there are none so good as the old favorites and Jacob Litt's production of "In Old Ken tucky," though it has been seen here on former occasions, will undoubtedly attract the same generous support from all classes of theatre-goers when it comes again this year. ,. "Foxy Grandpa" is one of the pop ular priced shows of the week. Attractions Coming to Kansas City. Shubert, all week -Virginia Harned in "The Love Letter." Willis Wood, all week Jess Dandy in "The Prince of Pilsen." Grand, all week "The Mayor of Tokio." , At the Shubert theater next week Virginia Harned will appear in Sar- dou's brilliant comedy, "The Love Let ter." Miss Harned's personality is likely to brighten anything she cares to play. In "The Love Letter" she has a double opportunity. Sardou's lines are full of literary cleverness and dra matic directness. Miss Harned clothes them in a fascinating color of life. There are complicated situations and unexpected contradictions of evidence in which two husbands, a cynical bachelor, a divorced sister, who is al ways trying to fix things and in doing so makes them worse, a lawyer who is kept busy reconciling incidents, keep up a whirl of amusement. The play is beautifully presented and by an ex cellent company, which includes William Courtenay, AV. J. Ferguson, Albert . Gran, Eleanor Moretti and Dorothy Rossmoie. "The Prince of Pilsen," which con tinues under Manager Henry W. Sav age's directing care, is announced for Marie Quinn aa "Msdee" la "In Old Kentucky." I p. :::, ' .: ' :a .'5:Svsi;'i-::,it' ' . .v;:-;'-.-: . f-y' i - I.:,..:..-:-. js "1 it Jr.ne Kennark in Viola Allen's the week of November IS at the Wil lis Wood theater. The popularity of this delightful musical comedy has carried it through many seasons and over a world-wide range of territory. It is to its credit that it has lost noth ing of its charm and potency by fre quent repetion. Its fifth season has especial distinction in that the cast is in many respects the bes yet seen in the play. Jess Dandy continues at the head of the company, and Pauline Guzman is playing the widow. Ilackett and Mannering Join Shuberts. Two more prominent stars have gone over to Uhe .-Shubert syndicate. They are James K. Hackett and Mary Mannering, who in private life are husband and rwife. . Their contract with the independents begins with the new year. Mr. Hackett was one of the members of the first anti-syndicate movement, which included Harrison Grey Fiske and Maurice Campbell, be sides himself. Last season, however, he returned to the big syndicate. It is the intention to star himself and his wife in separate plays. Mr. Hackett also owns the theater which bears his name in New Tork and is, therefore,-a valuable addition, to the Shubert forces. i' , . Ezra Kendall Would Like to' Know , If a heri lays tnWhtfndred eggs a year, which sell foti three 'cents each, what 'is the hen vorth? If a man drinks a glass of beer through a straw, will he contract hay fever? ; " ''.. If a widower married his mother-in-law, would he be considered a sane man ? If Adam was nDt the first to see the dawn of day, who got the first sight of Eve? Why traveling through space is not practicable when so many people flit ter through life on (hot) air? When a man sneezes is it because his brain is dusty? Do you get a run for your money by traveling the pace that kills? Kendall says jokes are valuable. He found them to be especially valuable in one stage of his career, for by their aid he managed to pay off a debt of $15,000. It was in 1892 that he tried to manage three shows and failed. He had some assets, but he alio had the additional responsibilities of a,wife and six children. Three show bill printers were among his creditors, so he went to them with a proposition to get up a book of jokes from the sale of which enough profits would accrue to wipe out the debt. Two of tlve three saw nothing in the scheme, but the third was duly impressed and under took the orintinjj of the book. "Spots" was the first book. Before the de mand for it ceased V million copies had been disposed of. The second book, "Good Gravey," was even more popular than the first, and 350,000 are floating around the universe. DID YOU KNOW That Madame Modjeska has begun her road tour in "Macbeth"? That James K. Hackett began a road tour in New England last week in "The Walls of Jericho"? That Charles Klein's new play, "The Daughters of Men," is to have its first production in New Tork the middle of the month? Mr. Klein is the auth or of "The Lion and the Mouse." That Tvette Guilbert and Albert Chevalier will travel 38.000 miles on their present American tour, which has been extended to the Pacific coast? That Amelia Bingham is making a tour in her new play, "The Lilac Room"? That Isabel Hall has been engaged as prima donna with Harry Bulger in "The Man From Now" ? That Thomas Jefferson is to make a tour of the southern cities in "Rip Van Wrinkle"? That Denman Thompson contem plates a return to the stage next sea son in his old pole of Josh Whitcomb in "The Old Homestead"? That the Rose of the Alhambra has been secured by the Shuberts, for pro duction later in the season? That the famous Joe Jefferson farm, near Hoboken, N. J-. where the actor made his home for many years, was sold at sheriff's safe? Dr. Horace Enos, a resident of Hoboken, Is the new owner. That three stars have been added to Lew Field's new musical melange, "About Town" Blanche Ring. Peter F. Dailey and Kate Condon. The two latter have been playing "The Prest Agent."

"Brewster's Millions" has been sold to the Shuberts, it is reported, by Thompson & Dundy, Winchell Smith wrote the play and it was said to be quite successful when produced. It is said Thompson 61 Dundy were unable to obtain satisfactory bookings. Jesse Lynch Williams' newspaper drama 'The Stolen Story," was last week pur chased from Henry W. Savage by James M. Allison, and will hereafter appear in houses controlled by the Shuberts. "The Stolen Story" made a great hit in New York. . Albert McGuckin has been engaged by Jefferson de 'Angells and specially selected by Julian Edwards, the composer of "The Girl and the Governor," as musical di rector. Arnold Daly is playing "How He Lied to Her Husband" in a New York vaudeville theater. . It is the first appearance of a Shaw play amid such surroundings, but since Mr. Daly is in trouble witli both the trust and the independents, there does not seem to be any other place for. him. Tim Murphy recently won a long, hard fount iegi Dattle for an unpaiu portion of uie insurance on his celebrated collec tion of plays, play bills, prints and por traits lest in the nre whicn destroyed ins Long Island home tnree years au. -The, Savoy theater in Ne'w"Tork is hav ing a series ot failures that is becoming appalling. Firrst Lillian itussell, in "Bar bara s ftlUliona," went, awry; then fol lowed "The Muuse .o Mirth," with Pay Davis, which was a sad anair, and now it is announced that ivyrie iseiiew and his new piay, "Brigadier Geraru," is not impressing as " it was expected, and will enu its present run tonigiit. A new play, "Sir Amhony," is to fouow. Henry W. Savage has achieved a sensation--with, .his production in Lnglish of Puccini's Iuilo-Japitiiese opera, "Aiadame Butterrly." Critical Boston has bestowed its entire approval. There is nothing more to desire. "The Mimic and the Maid" is the title of a new musical comedy by Allen Lowe and A. Baldwin Sloane, to bo played in the Shubert houses, lhe cast will include W. G. Mandev'ile, Victor Rosaire, 'Oilman Low, Maurice D'Arcy, Harry ii. Watson, Alice Craft Benson, Melville and Stetson and Dorothy Russell. The - production is to be made by the Hermann Oppeuneimer company. An attractive advertising novelty used in the cities where "The Red Feather" plays is a gratuitous distribution of red leathers. They are given away by the thousands, and are ot such an attractive rich color tiiey are eagerly adopted and worn in hats and button holes. So far Manager Joseph M. Oaites has used one car load of feathers and has already bar gained for two more. Henry Woodruff was arrested in Pitts burgh on Halloween night for remon strating with a policeman who was trying to curb some alleged unseemly revelry. At the police court Mr. Woodruff was fined id, and the re'eiler was sent to the workhouse for ten days. Because Edith Shayne, the niece of the late C. C Shayne, the New York furrier, and who is a prominent member of "The Lion and the Mouse" company, preferred a stage career her uncle cut her off in his will with SI, 000 instead of giving her the intended portion of JJOO.uOO. Miss Shayne is at present using her spare time be tween performances in trying to force her claim in the courts to what she considers her just due. Daly's, one of the best known of New York's theaters, is to pass from the pres ent management to that of the Messrs. Shubert. After several weeks of negotia tion, which aroused all sorts of rumors as to the property, the independent manag ers have made arrangements by which they will get control of the playhouse next May, when the leases now held by Mr. Frame McKee expires. Fifty Sioux Indians, under the command of Chief Sweet Mouth, will leave Ne braska in a few days en route to New York, to appear in the new spectacle to be produced at the New York hippodrome Thanksgiving week. They all come from the Pine Ridge Agency, and not one ha ever been in a city. Nearly a dozen squaws and ssveral papooses are In the party. The scene on board of the yacht Flitter in the big Thompson and Dundy produc tion, "Brewster's Millions," is claimed to be the most startling scene of its kind ever disclosed. Among the novel devices in adding realism to this scene are three enormous blowers, each propelled by a ten-horsepower motor. The full force of the gale is thus made apparent when these machines are at work. Charles Bradford, business manager of "The Flower Girl," the' third of the Shu bert shows to come to the Lyric theater, explains why the present title of his opera was substituted for "Veronique," its original name. "The towns we play en route to the cities weren't equal to the : word 'Veronique,' " says Mr. Bradford. "Most people thought it referred to a hair tonic or new breakfast food. In one town the hotel clerk asked me where Mr. Ve ronique was going to stop. I said to my self, 'He'll stop- right "here, and I stopped him. I changed the name and ordered i new printing at once. The change cost my firm about $2,0u0, and nearly drove the authors of the play to the madhouse, ' but an Increase of nearly double our re ceipts has pacified everybody." Owing to the misunderstandings arising from the confusion of titles of the dra matization of Marah Ellis Ryan's ro mance, "Told In the Hills," and a melo drama touring the country under the title of "As Told in the Hills." it has been de cided to change the former production to "Genesee ot the Hills," in wnicn r-awin Arden and his company will appear in New York November 13 for an extended run. Wilton Lackaye is to go into New York with Ms "The Law and the Man" Christ mas week. By the way, Mr. Lackaye has Just been elected the new Shepherd of the bamtiB ciuo. When vivacious Helen Hale, the Welles ley college girl who is with Harry Bulger in the "Musical Man irom now, was in terviewed concerning her reported engage ment to blushing George Ade, she ex claimed: "I don't believe it. I had my foot read by a fortune teller In New York and he told me I was not to be engaged again for two years." Helen always did have a pretty fair sense of humor. Owing to the number of failures in New York ia the last few weeks several the aters have endeavored to get Henrietta Crosman to cancel her tour and oaen in New York immediately, but Maurice Campbell, her manager, has decided to remain on the road until January at least. James O'Neill produced "The Voice of the Mighty" at Milwaukee. The play is based on events chronicled in Biblical his tory in the rele-n of Tiberius Caesar. James O'Neill, Jr., Ethel Dunn and Te resa uale were in the cast. John E. Kellard made his first appear ance as a star under the Shubert man agement in "Taps at Kansas City. The Shuberts' new metroDolitan theater, the Lincoln Square, at Sixty-sixth street and Broadway, New York, was opened re cently with Guy Standing in Edward Pe ble's play, "The Love Route." The new theater marks an advance in uptown piay houses, being 52 city blocks north of the old Rialto, at Fourteenth street, which but a few years ago was the centre of theatricals in isew lork. Some Idea of the measure of Fritz! Scheff's Boston and New England suc cess, in "Mile. Modiste," tho new Blos som-Herbert comic ODera. is suggested by the report that the authors' royalties 5 per cent of the gross receipts amounted to J2.700 for the brief Boston engagement. Henrietta Crosman in "All-of-a-Sudden Pegey" has just finished an engagement at the Broad Street theater in Philadel phia to the two biggest weeks' business in the History or that theater, ui course, the receipts were not as great as when Miss Crosman played "The Sword of the Klnir" at the Academy of Music in that city, owing to the size of the theater, but then that engagement was proDaDiy tne greatest ever played by a dramatic star anywhere, one night alone bringing in J4.075. "The Strength of the Weak" is the title of the play in which Florence Roberts will appear at a Washington theater next week. The role of Pauline Darcy in "The Strength of the Weak" marks an innova tion in the matter of types in problem plays in that the woman, from her grad uation day at a university to the tragic ending of the play, is called upon to run the full gamut of human emotions and carrv a certain element of comedy with which the play is replete in its earlier stages. Everybody knows that Francis Wilson, the comedian, is a man of literary in clinations, but it is not so generally known that he is an art collector, too. At any rate, he is suing a picture dealer named Collins for working off on him an imitation Mauve. Wilson claims he paid the dealer $5,375 for it, and that it is not worth anything. He wants the money back. Tim Murphy has sold his Long Island estate and has bought a tract of wild land in the Berkshires, where he is going to build a new villa. He will repeat, with improvements suggested by experience, the happy scheme for stage, studio and storage, which was a feature of his sum mer place destroyed by fire three years ago. Miss Camille D'Arville, who married and retired from the staae three years ago, made her reappearance as a Snubert star in a new musical play in Newark, N. J., November 12. The authors of the new play are Messrs. Stanislaus Stange and Julian Edwards, jutuI is called "The Belle of the Town." Miss D'Arville made her debut in America at the Broadway the atre in "The Queen's Mate" in June, 1S8S. Lillian Russell was a member of the same company. Three years ago Miss D'Arville wedded and temporarily retired from the stage. The company engaged to support her includes Carl Stahl, Robert E Cavendish, Frank Farrington, Orville Harold, Hal Pearson. Arthur D. Wood, Herman Steinman, Edmund Stanley, Jos eph Frehoff, Ruth Peebles, Belle Thorne, Alice Knowles, Hilda Hollins and Kath leen Clifford. David Belasco's new theater in New York, the Stuyvesant, the first to be erected under that city's new building laws, will be opened in September of next year. It is purposed to present David Warneld there in a new play. . Percy Mackave, the son of Steele Mack aye; H. W. Boynton, the editor of the At lantic Monthly; Herman Sudermann and Gerhardt Hauptmann, the two greatest writers of the drama In Germany; Mau rice Maeterlinck, the great Belgian dra matist, and William Shakespeare, are the authors whose works will be presented by E.

The company of 125 people which Klaw & Erlanger has formed to present Frank Plxley and Gustave Luder s new opera, "The Grand Mogul," has begun rehears als in New York. This company includes Frank Moulan, Sager Midgeley, Will H. Macart, John Dunsmuir, Maude Lillian Berri, Ethel Marie Parker, Phoebe Coyne and Edith St. Clair. Grain Inspector Collects S 1,4.15.
