Elizabeth Tyree Makes Her Debut as a Star--.Gossip of Show People Whom You All Know About and Have Seen. CORNIE:S 'O..NII St OF Itil t INt R MOI'NNilN. New York, Jan. I.t.--Anl overcrowded audience filled every seat and all of the standing room at the Fourteenth Street theater Monday night to welcome RHolert Hilliard back to the stage. Every few years "llandsome It(ob" takes a notion to give up his first love, which was Wall street. lie has held a number of excellent positions down there, and for 18 months past has been doing exceedingly well. but a splendid offer from Rich & allrris to star him in "Jim Bludso" has tempted himt away from thle "Street" once more. "Jim Bludso" is a four-act drama by I. N. Mor ris, founded on Secretary Hay's ballads. The author has made use of "l.ittle Breeches" and "Ilanty Tint" in his story of the engineer of the "Prairie Belle," and drawn from them a play full of intensity, excitement and heart interest. Two love stories have been evolved from these bhal lads, but the main theme concerns Jim IBludso's life and love. The story opens at Tom Taggart's hall in (Gilgal and shifts to the levee embankment, where the levee breaks and the waters of the Mississiippi overflow the surrounding country. The second act ends in an exciting climax in the saving of Jim from the hands of a mob. Next Jim Illudlso is seen unpn the deck of the Prairie Belle. At first the Loat is at the landing, then amid stream, racing with a rival boat; then, a victor in the race, she is finally destroyed by fire. The final act is in Gilgal in the square fronting the courthouse. The scenes showing the broken levee, the steamboat race and the fire scene are the most sensa tional and realistic ever sItown on the stage. The burning of the Prairie Belle is a thriller and no mistake. Mr. Hilliard, who is starred by the man. agement, had an enthusiastic reception. As Jim Bludso he never looked handsomer and has never before acted with so much skill. His work from start to finish is mnagnetic. At the end of each act there were several enthusiastic curtain a.l. nnz FOR RENT 3a-room modern brick, South Arizona, 4-room frame, 2a2a So. Wyo., $16.oo, $48.5o. 4-room brick, 1la3 So.

It was a triumphant night for the popular "hob." Rich & IHarris furnished a strong supporting cast. "Jim Itludso" is on for a long run. At the Madison Square theater Monday night .Miss Elizabeth Tyree made her debut as a star, under the management of Henry B. Harris. She appelared in a new comedy by Grace I.ivingston Furniss. called "Gretna G;reen." The prilcial characters in the piece are l)ully Erskine, the Earl of Bassett and Iady c'lhtwynde. The earl, disguised as a riding master. meets and falls in love with IDolly. They go to Gretna Green, when I )olly cons inces the noble lord of his wife's rectitude, and of course all ends happily. Comedy and ro mance are the scenes that show Miss Tyree to the best advantage. The young actress teas cordially welcomed and vi:, orously applauded by a large and decidedly smart audience. The new star and the new play are ). K. The most talked of plays now running, at the theaters are "Mary of Magdlala," in which Mrs. Fiske is appearing at the Man hattan: "The D)arling of the Gods," at Ihelasco's, and Richard Mansfield's revival of "Julius Caesar,'" at the Ilerald Square. Mrs. Fiske's production of "Mary of Mag dala" has not been commented on ad versely by those who usually find fault with anything of a religious nature when exploited upon the stage. As a matter of fact this play has been pronounced by clergymen an excellent object lesson. While critics may differ the public has approved of Richard Mansfield's Brutus, and to emphasize this they are crowding the theater at every performance. In "The Darling of the Gods" Belasco has struck a gold mine. The play is a novelty and a gorgeous production in the smallest de tail. It is drawing overflowing audiences. Although several managers are after the Circle theater, as yet no one has secured the second, a creamer and sugar bowl, was awarded to Mrs. A. Anderson. The members who attended were Mes. dames T. J.

I'erhals no school-room drill is o htellful to growing orators and future taltesmen as this free and unre. strainmed exercise of their powers. Usu all) one of the teachers is present to help the young boys in their etTiirts. I.ast 'l'es.day the meeting was held with Clifton ('armin.

Fred Savage, loim Featherly. Horace Woodbury, Rus sel Mcintyre. Ivor Williams. Colin Chris tie. Rotwitt Kenna, Arthur Riddle, Roger Lane. St. Joseph's Junior Club. Several of the young girls of St. Ji.cph'sa cllhurch have organized a club and have niamed it St. Joseph's Junlir club. The first meeting wias held at the holne of Miss Agnes Fa;gan last Friday eveninug. The house waus pIrttily decorated in colors of. silver grasy and old rore, which are the colors of the club. A delightful program was rend, redl and then the election of of ficers. The club then adljoiurned to meet at the home of NMi s Mary (;earing. The membll ers of the club uare as follows: Misses Agines Fagain. Mary ;t.earing. Florence Jecrome. Nellie FI.gan and Clara McMillan. The officers arc: P'rsildent. Mary Gear ing ; vice presidlint.

Mrs. Atwater will leave Butte soon for her hople in IDenver. Cole., so the club has prolbably enjoyed her delightful hospitality for the last time. This entertainment was in the nature of a farewell to her fellow clulwonmen by whom she will be, greatly miusse., and from whom the most sincere the lhouse. Uostuck. the animal trainer, is anxious to get it for a permanent home for his show of wild animals, and Burt Ilaverly, at one time the husband of I.aura Bigger. but now the spouse of a Madam I owlin. who has money to burn, has made an offer for the place. If Hav erly succeeds in getting a lease a minstrel company will Ie established there. Burt Ilaverl) will not get it. Charles Fruhm:tn is not pleased with the marriage of' William Faversham to Julie tipp and withdraws as Faversham's man ager at the end of his present contract. Faversham is of the opinion that he can do unlite as well as his own manager, and will probably blossoml out next season as a co star with his newest wife. Both of them are clever and as they are well known and popular there is scarcely a doubt but that a joint starring tour would be successful. The continued attractions at the the alers are: Julia Marlowe at the Criterion, "The Silver Slipper" at the Broadway, N. C. Goodwin and Maxine Elliott at the Knickerbocker. Mrs. Langtry at the Gar rick. "The Girl With the Green Eyes" at the Savoy, "The Sultan of Sulu" at Wal lack's. "The Billionaire" at Daly's. "Heid elberg" at the Princess, "A Chinese Honey moon" at the Casino. E. H. Sothern at the Garden, and "Ninety and Nine" at the Academy of Music. A letter brings the information that 'Waltcr Perkins is doing remarkably well in his new play. "Jerome, a Poor Man." The piece is a dramatization of Mary E. Wilkins' novel of that title. Many of the best incidents of the book have been re tainsed in the play ,ndl it is said that Mr. 'Perkins' impersonation of the title part is full of the hun, c that he so success fully showed in "My Friend From India" and in "The Man From Mexico." This is goodl news for the many friends of Mr. Perkins in this city. It has been almost positively decided that Blanch Walsh will not be seen here this season in "The Daughter of Hamil car." The winter is so far advanced and Miss Walsh is doing such a remarkable business on the road that her managers, \\agenhals & Kemper, think it good policy to delay her coming to New York until next fall. One of our most prominent managers, who has seen this play, says: "It is a gorgeous stage pageant, the wealth of scenic splendor being enhanced by the impressive music written by Henry K. Hadley." He also adds: "The acting of Miss Walsh is artistic in the highest de gree. She is certain to make a hit when this play is presented in New York." New theaters and new plays are prom ised galore. Reginald De Koven is build ing a new theater which will be managed by the Shubert Brothers, the Princess will have Amelia Brigham next month in a new Clyde Fitch play; "The Frisky Mrs.. Johnson" and Charles E. Evans of "Pat lor Match" fame, will appear at one of the Broadway houses at an early date in a comedy entitled "There and Back." January as at the Knickerbocker Klaw & Erlanger produce "Mr. Bluebeard," an English spectacle; Oscar Hammerstein Is at work on his new Drury Lane theater; Harry Harris is building the new Hudson theater, and Daniel Frohman is erecting a new Lyceum theater. Charles Froh man's productions for the remainder of the winter Include "The Bird in the Cage," by Clyde Fitch; "The Unforseen," a play by Robert Marshall; "Mice and Men," with Annie Russell as the star; "Ulysses," "The Flirt," and a new drama by Paul Potter. Fisher & Ryley are making extensive preparations for their big revival of "Florodora" at the Academy of Music on January a6. They have started a 'earcb good wishes will follow her to her new home. Current events were discussed with much niithusiasm. Mrs. John F. Forbis read the historical ,;pper of the day. Her theme was "Alex :nlicr II." She described the principal evenlt of his reign and the chief character. i'tics of his nature in a forceful manner. ',praking of his emancipation of the serfs, in particular, by which 14,ooo,o0oo of peo. Ile wire released from bondage and made v.e citirrens, she traced his influence over Iti..ia and closed with a description of tlt ;.assi;ilnation of the great czar in St. Pete'rsburg in 18R9. Mrs. Speer read the second paper of the dty, her .suject being "l'oland." She .ketl hed the history of this little kingdom when it was an extensive and powerful , intlarchy (during the middle ages, until it tmally ceased to exist, when it. was in icrlporated into the Rusian empire. \ discussion followed this paper, the I'.lantd of romance being talked of and .l tilhe fact that Henry of Valois, after wards henry II. of France, was chosen king of i'oland by the Poles, in 1572. Mlrs. (;roeneveld delivered the oral -ketch of the cliy, her theme being "l'tushkin." Mrs. Groeneveld talked inter '.tingly of this lyric poet of Russia, who i. .ometimes called the Byron of his coun try. touching on the principal incidents of his life from his birth in 1799 until his ;death in 3137. Some business was then disposed of, re freshments were served and the club ad joturnted to meet next Monday afternoon with Miss G;oodale. Saturday Night Club. The Saturday Night club held its last cmeting at the house of Mrs. Mary Ioughtty. soo3 West Park street. After uirrent events had been discussed Mr. and Mrs. Green Majors and Miss Mary E. ('Neill talked very interestingly on social ism. The club will meet tonight with Mr. .id Mrs. Green Majors. Literature Department. on Tuesday afternoon the literature de partment of the Woman's club held an in teresting meeting. Mrs. W. W. Cheely read an cxcellent sketch on "Thoreau," written by Mrs. Fred Harris. The paper touched on Thoreau's simple life and con trasted it with the more artificial and com plicated existence of today. Mrs. Gosmian read entertaining extracts from the newspapers, commenting on the convening of the legislature and describing the new capitol building in Helena. Mrs. Grigg read an article from Town Topics, which discussed our great finan ciers and commented on their early be ginnings. "Is olbby Burns more of an English than a Scotch Writer ?" was a subject that called forth much interesting discussion. Mrs. C. L. F. Kellogg. vice chairman, presided. The meeting was particularly enjoyable. The German Club. The German club will not meet today as usual. The next meeting will be held on Saturday. January 24, at the home of Mrs. (1. C. Rueger; 4o0k North Main street, Walkerville. of the country for the original members of the famous sextette. If all of them are rounded up. the company will include sev eral handsome people. It is positively kntown that something like 3oo young wo men now appearing in musical comedies in this and other cities were members of the "original" sextette. The Academy production will be on an elaborate scale, and with a chorus of too young men and womlln. Comic opera has never been a success at the Academy, but "Florodora" tlmay be an exception to this rule. From all accounts Thomas Jefferson, the son of Joseph Jefferson, is this season hav ing wonderful success in "Rip Van Winkle." Young Mr. Jefferson has evi dently inherited the talent of his father, for his impersonation of the immortal Rip is everywhere described as a gem. Before starting on his career as a star young Jef fcrson had considerable experience as an actor in l.ondon and in this country. To those who know of his ability his stellar sutccess is not a surprise. It is rumored that at the end of their season in May Louis James and Frederick Warde will fill an engagement in Honolulu, appearing in \\agenhals & Kemper's spectacular produc tion of "The Tempest" and other plays., l.ast year Mr. Warde went out there for a month and scored an uncommon success, drawing crowded houses at every perform ance. \'agenhals & Kemper have the mat ter under consideration and will decide the question within a few weeks. Pointers. Chauncey Olcott plays a return engage ment in this city next month, when we shall again see him in "Old Limerick Town," his newest play. Mr. Olcott's tour ends June z, after which he goes to his new and costly home in Saratoga for the bumtmer. Joseph Santley, a boy actor, begins a starring tour late this month, in a play called "The flo'y of the Streets." Young Santley is only to yeats of age, and is said to be a wonder. The beautiful Helen Grantley seems to have made a fine success in "The Girl and the Judge," a play in which Annie Russell has been starring. Monday night Grace Freeman, the prima donna of "The Country Girl" com pany, was given an ovation in Boston, her native city. This is by private wire. NANCY SYKES. GREENROOM GOSSIP. Lewis Morrison, who has been identified with "Faust" for so many years, has just closed a phenomenal week as business in ter ritory where the play has been seen often and appreciated highly. Frank Daniels has Just finished the big. gest New Year's week in his career. He says the condition of the country is so good that he is busy all the time counting his profits, which are sure to exceed those of last year by many thousands of dollars. It is said that the best evidence of a suc cess is to have speculators in front of the theater. Judging bythis, "The Darling of the Gods' is a gigantic success, for in spite of David Belasco's attempt to drive these mn from the front of his theater, there ard no less than a half dozen plying their tr de, , "Arizona" has bid farewell to the East, and is now once more on its way to the West for a tour of the principal cities. Re. cently in Jersey City, although the oompany has played there on three previous visits, its fourth was far the best, demonstratin what a strong play "Arizona" is and how lar it has been made by Kirke L# Dan Daly is going along in "The Ne-w Clown" with satisfaction to the managers of the theaters where he has played, and the piece, which has been converted into a muselal production, is wholesompe olev) Since Our Great "Discount Sale" of Clothing began, we received two shipments of winter suits and overcoats from Hart, Schaff ner & Marx-orders placed earlier.

Mr. Daly will continue far into the spring and will then play the principal part in a new production called "Bluebells in Fairyland." Glowing accounts come from the road concerning Amelia Bingham's second com pany which is playing "A Modern Magda len." Miss Bingham has demonstrated by giving the play a strong company she wouad reap the benefit, and she has to a large ex. tent, for the play has been praised and the cast especially commended because of the excellence. W. J. Ferguson and Roselle Knott have the leading parts. "Pretty Peggy" has been well received through New England especial,y in Wor cester, Mass., where Grace George was feted after the performance the other night, the banquet being tendered by a number of the leading citizens of that town. It is gen. erally agreed that Miss George frts the part of Peggy admirably, and the production is a most charming one. After a road tour of a few weeks "Pretty Peggy" will be of fered at the Grand Opera house in Chicago and later in the season will be seen In New York. Paul Gilmore has much to be thankful for. Established as a star by Jules Murry, equipped with a clever play like "The Tyranny of Tears," he has made a tour of the South and West with such gratifying results that his value in the stellar ranks has been greatly enhanced and there is a general demand for him in a great deal of the territory which is being held on reserve for next season. Management counts for everything nowadays, and Mr. Murry has certainly worked hard and is deserving of the reward which comes in nice large checks as the result of Mr. Gilmore's tour.
