Lincoln J. Carter's Southern Drama
Opens at Broadway Tomorrow.
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
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
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
"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
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
"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

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

"Dodo" boasts a phenomenal record of
five months at the Studebaker, Chicago,

tion of 75 lyric players Mr. Henry Savage

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.

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
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.

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

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.
