Lincoln J. Carter may well be termed the representative ..merican dramatist. E,'cry play that has come from his pen is American in theme, locale and characteri zation. No other author has clung so cl,se to things that are true to American ilnm, and no other author has more care fully studied the peculirities of his coun tiymcn or more faithfully drawn them for ta.;4e representation. This is again proved in his latest production, "Down Mobile," which opens at Sutton's Broadway theater for three nights. The sccnes are laid in Alabama. rich in its wealth of natural beauty and varied life. Both playwright and scenic artist, it is raid. have made the most of the oppor t:;nities taus afforded. The story differs Lu:;t little from that t.ld in standard melo t!.,,~a, lt:t it is in the telling thereof that th:. chief interest lies. A brave, resourc: ful hero is pitted against a scheming vil i.in, who. in the madness of his love for the heroin: , stops at nothing to satisfy the desire that finJs no responsive chord in her mind. "Down Mol,ile" is just the sort of play t:h;t finds full sympathy with an audience, I,.illg a scenic melodrama with enough coimedy introduced to make it light andl bright. The first act shows a view of the "Sonnyside Mansion ;" the second the Ie.;ro quarters of the plantation: the third a view of a moss hung opening in a dis mal swamp; and the fourth shows the de struction of a cotton mill by fire. Dur ing the action of the play many interest ing specialties will be introduced. CHANGES IN BROADWAY. Acoustic Properties of House Have Been Materially Improved. While there have not been many changes made in the Broadway theater, yet there is one improvement that will de li; ht the patrons of the house. For some reason the acoustic properties of some p.rtions of the house last season were far from being the best. A great many people m:ade complaint when seated in these places. The management studied the mat tcr over and finally concluded that by cloing that portion of the house in front of t:.e loges it would help the matter ma terially. Accordingly sashes were made and placed in position and fitted with glass, closing the foyer from the front of the house, the only opening left being where the aisles are. The Improvement was far greater than expected. There is now no place in the house that onie can not hear perfectly. As this was a source of great annoyance to the patrons of the house, there is hardly a question but the im proved conditions will bring increased :atronaECe. "THE RED KNIGHT." Something of the Play James Neill Will Present in This City. (;eorge II. Broadhurst's latest comedy, "The Red Knight," is a piece in which James Neill and his fine company will be seen in this city at the Broadway opera house. It is a fanciful comedy with the scenes laid in the imaginary kingdom of Rho doland, Europe. These scenes are said to bIe always interesting, picturesque and delightful. The principal characters are the Prince of Morantea and the Queen of Rhodoland. James Neill is seen as the Prince, a long and exacting part, into which he is said to throw himself with his accustomed earn estness and well sustained humor. The play is by far the most ambitious that Mr. Broadhurst has ever attempted and was the most emphatic success of any play given in San Francisco last summer. PLAY OF WESTERN LIFE. Elsa Ryan Is Touring the West in "Nevada" and Making Good. One of this season's most promising dramatic ventures is the inaugural tour of Miss Elsa Ryan in the new story of West ern life, "Nevada." Miss Ryan first at tracted public attention in the productions of the late Augustin Daly at Daly's thea ter, New York. Later she was received with much favor as Madge in Jacob Litt's "In Old Kentucky," and last season won everybody's esteem for her dainty por trayal of the captivating Angela in the big Chicago and New York success, "King Dodo." "Nevada" was written especially to ex ploit the talents of Miss Ryan and is said to possess all the elements of popu larity observed in high class melodrama of the present era. The play will open at the Broadway Sept. 14. "KING DODO" COMING. Sprightly Comic Opera sl to Come to Butte in the Near Soon. "King Dodo," the jolliest of comic opera monarchs, with Raymond Hitchcock in the title role, and Cheridah Simpson, Greta Risley, Flora Zabelle, Margaret Mc Kinney, Arthur Deagon, Arthur Wooley, William Corliss and a peerless choral court of sprightly girls, is booked to hold court here shortly. "Dodo" boasts a phenomenal record of five months at the Studebaker, Chicago, two months at Daly's theater, New York, and beginning August a of this year, a return enegagement of six weeks in Chi cago. With the same popular organiza tion of 75 lyric players Mr. Henry Savage will present the tuneful Pixley and Lu ders' work throughout the West. ROYAL ITALIAN BAND. Giannini's Big Aggregation of Musicians Is Due Here Next Week. ''Thursday of next week, the music lovers of Butte will have the opportunity of listening to the highly classical and dulcet strains produced by Giannini's Royal Marine Band of Italy. This ranks among the very best concert bands that has ever visited the United States. The leader, Mr. Msolitst, is an accomplished musician and composer, as well as being the peer of any band director in the world. This great band is winning the plaudits of the people wherever they appear. It is in the highest state of discipline and are tistic efficiency. Mr. Minoliti has prepared an attractive series of programs for his tour and will present many new soloists. WE'LL SEE 'EM ALL Foreign Actors of Note Are Coming to America This Season. All the leading foreign players save Martin Harvey, Mme. Regime and Mme. Duse will visit America the coming sea son under Charles Frohman's manage ment. From the number of authors who have contracted with plays for production it may be gathered that Mr. Frohman has nearly all of them at work, and the list includes Henry Arthur Jones, J. M. Barrie, H. V. Esmond, Captain Marshall, Sydney Grundy, Haddon Chambers, Leslie Stuart, Paul M. Potter, R. C. Carton, Henry Guy Carlton, Franklyn Fyles, A. W. Pinero, Edward E. Rose, Clyde Fitch, Alfred Capus, Gilbert Parker, Madeline Lucette Ryley, Stephen Phillips, Jerome K. Jerome, Anthony Hope, Alexander Bisson, Louis N. Parker, Henri Lavedan, Hall Caine, William Gillette, and one of two others. TIGHTS ARE GOING OUT. Chorus Girl of Today Is a Dainty, Mod est and Winsome Creature. An altogether new type of chorus girl has sprung up in the past two seasons. And, strange to say, she is part and parcel of the Casino, which was for so many years the Mecca of the old-style chorus girl. The new chorus girl is a daintier, sweeter creature than the one of years gone by. She is not a thing of brazen face. boldly staring eyes and columnar limbs which she is fond of showing to the public gaze, as were so many in by gone days of Casino successes. She is a winsome, girlish girl, pretty because she comes from the best families, dainty and sweet and modest because she comes from a home of refinement and culture to enter on a career which she hopes will bring her fame and fortune. In other days chorus girls were recruited from the slums and the very poor classes whose home life betoken little of education and refinement. The absence of tights and bizarre cos tumes and smut and suggestiveness from the lines of recent big musical comedy successes are responsible for the new chorus girl. A girl with voice, good looks and a neat appearance is taken in prefer ence to the girl whose face and form are familiar because ot frequent appearances in other productions. Parents of ambi tious girls know this very well and no longer object strenuously to permitting them to appear on the stage. "Florodora" had only one pair of tights, and these appeared only for a few min utes towards the close of the play. In "A Chinese Honeymoon" there are no tights. Every player-man or woman--is beauti fully and decently clad. MAY MARRY A MILLIONAIRE. Miss Anna Robinson, American Actress, Said to Be Engaged. Miss Anna Robinson, an American actress, seems to be one of the greatest attractions in London just now. Espe cially is this true since it has been whis pered about that she is soon to wed a miner from South Africa who has more money than a force of bank clerks could count in a week's time. Miss Robinson is one of those remark ably fortunate persons who have become so well known that the mere mention of their name is a sufficient identification in New York, Paris or London, the three places that make up the world. She is really one of the most beautiful of living women in the opinion of many whose judg ment commands respect. She has been on the stage for nearly "DOWN MOBILE."

The Century company is about to bring out anll edition of the BibhI for children. 'he appeal of the Bible to children's minds is both natural and simple, yet there are nome things in it which careful parents wo,uld keep from their children, and in .e.as:ng it aloud to young children one often skips what seems unsuitable. These omitted parts include genealogies also, and whatever we regard as unprofitable for the young listeners. T'he present issue of The Century com pany has been arranged by the Rev, Fran ces Brown, I). I)., of the Union Theolog ical seminary, New York, and Bishop Potter furnishes the introduction. It alms to be made up entirely of the parts of the Bible suitable for children, and it has been so divided into subjects as to form com plete stories. The life of Jesus has been put together in a continuous account taken from the four evangelists. Septomber Wilshire's.
