CRUISERS HOME, TIRED BUT happv Detroit 111 Makes Rec ord Run From the Soo BUSINESS MEN SORE FROM HIKES Walking Canes Provid ed As Souvenirs Come In Handy • - It was h bat contented crowd of cruisers that left the City of Detroit 111 at the Wayne-st. dock, at 5 o’clock. Monda> mgnf, after the moat eventful and tnornugmy enjoy ed trip that the Detroit Hoard of Comnu?r< e ever ha* held Kroru Saulf Bte Marie to Itetroit, the boat established i new record of 19 12 hour*, (apt F. J Simison having made a special effv rt to get the cruiser* home in time for dinner And as a fitting wind up to the four days’ trip, the final day was the be*» of all From cn < arly hour in the morning until the arrival here, the sun shone brightly and balriy winds a wept the de ka The cruisers’ r'-reption on their arrival home wa .>» t \ bit as noisy as that which -igriallod the depart ure Fver\ vessel along tlie river front saluted the immense side wheeler a she pulled info (he wharf for the diseniharking A few thou aaod people, mostly families and friends of those c n boarn, were there to welcome them. There wa* cheering, but very Rule on the part of the cruisers, for they had had four day- of it. and were well tired out By the unusual exertion “Gee ; wonder what makes them •o quiet," shouted one little girl of five or «lx years, as -he pushed h rt r way through the crowd that was leaving the boat. And the test of the crowd on the wharf wcodered. One had only to give more than a casual glance at the members of the party as they left the boat to answer the crowd s question. The hikes through the rough trails of Grand Island, the strenuous athletic contests, parades, deck sports and various other means of entertain ment had had a telling effect. There were bound muscles in profusion, fallen arches, strained ligaments and all other manner of muscular disorder that had been tormenting about half of tne party since Sat urday night, when the boat left Grand Island The i*er.-on who put fIOO stout wralking enne-i on hoard a* souvenir;- to the cruisers when the boat pulled out, last Thursday, cer tainly showed an extraordinary amount of foresight, for all were put io good use, especially on the last stretch from the boai home One story told by the sojourners on the iclind i* that a member of the pnrfv, after walking some 12 mile* nr more, at down in the road and demanded that the remainder of The hiking -quad hurry ba< k to the landing and get an automobile for him. Alter ce.erving the crippled member aoout a mile the\ refused to move further with him. and left him t( hi- fate Somehow or other he reuehed the boat several hours later, irady lor the doctor’s atten tion. • The 12 hour delay near Grand Isl and that prevented the boat from ar riving at v a m Mondt y, ns s< hed tiled, faii.-ed some business worry for a few, but others made the best of It, and derided that their affairs at home could well wait another day The big event of Monday was a parade around the boat deck. In which practically all the cruisers participated Moving pictures were taken as the crowd pioceeded around •he deck, headed by the band. Deck rports, Monday morning, in • hided reveral boxing mulches of better than mediocre character. Jim mie Collins and Joe Fox, Negro, fought a doge match, t’olllns win ning on points The Texas Kid. a Negro, was knocked out by Jimmie March, of Detroit, and the "Pltts burgs Kid” won from Young War ren. cf Memphis, on points. There were few accidents during the four days. G. R. Hawkins anti H T Tlmrber became lost on the Island, Saturday afternoon, and when they reached the landing, the Detroit 111 had left. They went to Munlslng. and then to the floo, reach ing the boat, as she pulled through the locks , One of the things most frequently commented on by the cruisers was *hc excellence of tne food provided under the direction of Jule E. Cohen, chief commls«ary of the De troit a Cleveland Navigation Cos. , Find* Biggest Dinosaur. JENSEN, Utnh, June 13.—Prof. Earl Douglas, of the Carnegie mu seum.

Hughes, wife of the Republican candidate for the presidency, the wom an who wtll bo the "first lady of the land" if the ex Justice of the Fnlted States Supreme court is elected president, was taken in her library at her spacious home in Washington Mrs. Hughes is known in Washing ton as a woman of domestic, rather than society tastes. Despite the fact that her husband’s place insures her the highest social position in Washington, she has spent most of her time with her family. Miss Helen Hughes, the eldest daughter, has been for some time in a camp of the Young Women’s Christian Association in Pennsylvania. THEATERS GARRICK. The Glaser stock company mlgh have made a happier choice of * play in which to iay good-bye to Its Detroit friends than "The Other Wife,” pr'sented Monday evening, in the Garrick theater. The public would rather part from popular play ers with smiles and not tears, com cdy and not tmgedy. There are few laughs in "The Oth er Wife,” and not much real Interest or dramatic action. It is said to be anew play bv an unknown author. Carl Mason It certainly bears all the earmarks of the amateur. Mr Gla.-er and hla capable asso ciate? did all that was possible with the material The leading role of Robert Pevington was undertaken by Mr. Glaser. The man la sup posed to he a lawyer of brilliant at fuinments hut the playwright makes bint .-ay and do the most utterly ale surd things for an attorney of wits and brains. Miss Countepey has an extremely ingerui' role a.- Revington’s daughter 1.-abelle. and is not required to do more than girlishly gurgle and look pretty Bessie M.tcAllister played Roving ton’s wife, and Con.-tance Kenyon had a part entirely unsulted to her. Ro-e < atneron was "tne other wife" whose .-tage appearance consisted of one short scene with Hevington be fore she goes out to meet her death. As usual, William Powell gave an excellent cnara« ter study in Riley, a political Id.-", and Kdward Ewald again showed that he l* a young act or of more than ordinary merit as Richard Render, who wl*he.< to mar ly Isabelle John Dwyer’s faithful family aervant was a really fine bit of work, and Frederick Kerby scored in the one scene given to him when he confesses to the slaying of the woman who had been Bevington’s boyhood wife, and for whose death the lawyer had believed himself guilty. The Glaser company which has had a successful stay of six weeks In the Garrick, will give the last performance of "The Other Wife" Sunday evening Jessie Bonatelle and her stock company will occupy the Garrick stage for ihe rest of the summer, opening Monday even ing, June 19, In Oscar Wilde’s bril liant play, "Lady Wlndemere’s Fan." ELlj\ MAE HAWTHORNE ORPHEUM. While the Three Keatons are the headliners in the Orpheum theater, this week. Herbert and Dennis, De troit boys, billed as "Two Jolly Good Fellowa," easily take the applause honors Not that the Three Kea tons are not good, for this trio la a leader In Its particular brand of fun. but Herbert and Dennis have originality all their own The big fellow, with his peculiar slide and his sudden Introduction of startling and nimble acrobatics Is fooling not seen every day. They do "nut" comedy, tell stories, sing and dance, but It is the athletic work that cap turea the audience. It has been many s day since so much applause has been showered on any pair of comedians In the Orpheum as that which greeted these lads, Monday afternoon. Countess Rxechy, a fascinating Oyp«7 flrl, open* the bIU with mu* slca! numbers on the czimbalon. Then follow Jones and Johnson, considered the best colored come dians in vaudeville, who besides showing their ability to speak for eign languages, ran dance and sing "The Fighter and the Boas," a po litical playlet, has more than ordi nary force, particularly at this time of political conventions. Then comes a popular prlma donna. Grace Hazard, "five feet of comic opera.” who sings from a half-dozen popular operas In costume and winds If up cleverly with the introduction of a huge basket of flowers which hold a bagpipe and a Scotch costume. The Three Keatons, who close the program, provide a mixture of their 1 old rough and ready fun In which they manage to get a laugh with every hump. The Keatons have some "new stuff" this season, and they know how to make use of !* Pictures precede and follow the vaudeville. MILES The quintessence of vaudeville is contained in Gartelle Bros.* act In the Miles, this week. They give a burlesque on the difficulties of roller skating with about as much regard for flesh and limb as is shown by the characters of the funny sections, and then flash a surprise in a change from floundering rapers to the cleverest of fancy clogging. Another very characteristic va riety stunt is given in "the mystery farce comedy,” "Wanted. John Douglas." presented by William Schilling & Cos. It Is hair-raising melodrama overdone Into farce, nnd it finishes with a hang A secret room, two killings, an elopement and an estrangement are some of the Incidents Jammed into the play let. Von Dell Impersonates several musicians with violin, cornet and Velio, and then offers a saxaphone selection 1n whleh he Is most effec tive of all, mastering the difficulties of the Instrument with the greatest ease, and playing a number of pop ular selections, the Introductlons to which hv the orchestra bring him the applause of anticipation He‘a good as an ImltAtor but best as himself. Watkins and Williams do the staple hilling and cooing stunts, with pert dialogue, and sing the amorous dtios that the women vau deville fans love to hear, For the children there Is the mon key rlreus. and while Prof Worm wood offers nothing unique. "Pink." the mind reading dog. gives a first rate exhibition of animal Intelli gence and "Charlie Chaplin." the monk, delights the youngsters with his ludicrous capers A tiny mar moset ran up a pole to a bog in which there happened to be a three year-old, Monday afternoon, and the proximity of the little animal threw the tot Into an ecstasy of delight. The monkey made an agile leap down to the stage Into Its master's hands. Jules and Francis sing and Joke in their skit. "Over the Counter.” TEMPLE. Stella Mayhew, recognised as one of the foremost comediennes of the American stage. Is topping the Tern* pie bill, thia week, with Billie Tay lor, who In private life la Stella’s DETROIT TIMES hu.-band Though threatened with increasing avoiruupots, Stella May hew continues to generate plenty of lung-power for "coon shouting." Her particular brand of humor is quite irresistible Husband Billie is also a .'weet singer, and helps out on the piano The preseut vaudeville offering of this famous "team" is travesty on various headliners, interspersed by several song.< written by Taylor ex pressly for his wife, Stella. Miss Dong Fong Gue and Harry Haw appear in a Chinese conception of American songs aud dances, ikitb are talented singers. The Oriental costumes worn by the couple are wonderful creations, even to the peculiar headgear that seems to take the place of a derby or an ostrich plume in the Chinese styles plates cf latest design. Consul is the name of an edi: -ated chimpanzee who appears with I.ady Betty, another member of the Simian family, lp an amusing series of comedy stunts. The apes ride bicycles, roller sk.de, smoke, dance, etc, in a manner that is both laugh able and grotesque. "All Wrong is the name of a rather unusual comedy in which Frances Nordstrom and William F’inkham made .heir appearance. As the wif* ot an Knglish "bore." Mis Nordstrom tires of the quiet lift and pines for excitement She falls asleep after a quarrel with her pas sive husliund aim she dreams that he Is an an h crook and a slayer. Then she becomes h> si erica I The denouement is simp e.
