WHAT IS DUE AT THEATERS OF BUTTE NEXTI WEEK
Everybody who is anybody will go to t':e Broadway theater tomorrow eight to gnve a joyous welcome to majestio NXano O'Neil, who returns to Butte after en absence of nearly four years, greater and more beautiful than ever. During the interregnum she has girdled the earth with a chain of dramatic triumphs as great as anything in history, compellig recognition and capturing the higgh honors by the sheer force of her geaitu Miss O'Neil this evening will impart her rare personality to the loves and tiigedies of. England's tempestuonu virgin Queen Elisabeth, in Giacomettl's powerful play of that name. In this prduction Miss O'Nefl's gowns are said be something to eatec the feminine eye, her form to attract all men, her spirit to cause timid soueals to shrink, her statuesque beauty suelest to make artists rave, while in rare me ments her very natural art makes on lookers forget that she is playing a part, for she has the true dramatic genius and the power to fire the imginastio. The Seattle Times has this to say of the performance: "A prey to fattery, vain and conceited, jealous of her power and ever suspicious, Elizabeth lives in history as a great, but in many respects sa unjust, queen. Miss O'Nelf' interprets' tints of her character is vivid and full of lie shading. She shows us perfectly th jealous but remorseful sovereign, the woman whose heart was never at peace. In the last act, wherein occurs the death scmne, Miss O'Neil's rendering was flawless. It is to be doubted whether a death scene was ever executed better." Monday night Miss O'Neil will present an entirely different phase of her re anarkable powers as the unconventional heroine in Sudermann'a great play, ":Magda." This will be repeated at the matinee on Thursday. "The Jewess" fol lows on Tuesday evening. "Camille" on Wedn'esday evening and Ibsen's weird conception. "Hledda Gablcr," on Thurs day evening. "The Gamekeeper." "The Gamekeeper," an Irish comedy drama, will be the attraction at the Grand opera house for four nights, with a Sun day matinee April s. Of the production the Salt Lake Tribune has the following to say : "One of the best of the many good shows seen at the Grand theater this sea son is "The Gamekeeper," presented for th: first time in Salt Lake last night in the presence of a large and entirely appreciative audience. The play is an Irish comedy-drama, written by Con T. Mlurl,hy and presented under the manage nment of Rowland and Clifford. The story deals with the death in India of an heir to an Irish estate; of the perfidy of two friends, one of whom returns to the old hommie and claims to be the heir, the other remaining as his guest for some time. Tihe latter falls in love with the sister of the gamekeeper of the estate, and it is his love for the girl which leads him t,, rev.eal the secret. The imposter, learn in;1 of this., and knowing that the young aoiy oflicer has the compact into which t' y enttcrl never to reveal the secret, ,l.~ Iles to take his life and regain the c,.,tract. lie shootsn the young man, but I.

The play is I.cutifully staged and is presented by a good comp,1any. Thomas Smith, as Derry ,1:) aan. the gamekeeper, and as Thomas ]lrady. is a tine type of an Irishman, full of ~ it andol sang atnd is justly the most t. ptlar membier of the company. A close tcco:ll to him was Baby Patti, a child seven sumnmers, and a clever little lady she is. She sings two songs in the see owl act that bring down the house, and encore after encore was demanded. And there was a dumb member of the com pany who came in for his share of the applause, and it didn't seem to turn his ia ,l a bit--it was Brady, the thorough bred Irish setter, who was little less than ltu;iant. rite way he licked the face anol hands of the young English officer v.l hn lie was supposed to have been killed by the imposter was truly pathetic. The part of lllrbert Daylc, alias Owen ('Neil, was well taken by Del C. Shel del,. William Morris, as Johnny Drake, filled the role of the young Irish boy to perfection, and probably caused more laugltecr t!han all the other members put togelher. Fred Walton was especially gaRcl as Lanty Hogan and Daniel Doolan. 'lh. mcinor characters were" acceptably filled. Of the ladies, they were all good. 'lThe scenery was particularly pretty, some of it being painted from nature in Ire lanaI. The chapel scene was the best of all, and was really beautiful. "Under the Pines." "L'nder the Pines," a comedy melo. dianl:a, will be given at the Union Fam ily theater next week, starting with to mnorrow's matinee. It is a charming piece, full of humor and pathos, with enough d:amnatic action to suit all tastes. The vaudeville will be almost all new, anl about the best that has yet been co(:'·;rgated on the Union Family boards. 'Thie Kcllys--fathcr and 8-year-old daugh ter- in buck and wing dancing and comelly sketches, have a big repu tition. Doty, the monologist, is said to bce able to Imake a packed house laugh as long as he talks, and that if he an swtered every encore the performance would run past midnight.

NEW YORK LETTER As is usually the case the benefit per formance for the Actor's loame which was held at the Metropolitan Opera House has left a trail of most unpleas ant aftermath. First of all it develops that Miss Gertrude Quinlan and many other principles of "The Sultan of Sulu" company mutined at the last moment and declined to participate in the performance because Maude Lillian Berri and Frank Moulan, the prima donna and comedian respectively of the company, were being advertised more extensively than they themselves. Managerial balm and coer cion were necessary before the recalci trant members were whipped into line. It was merely another flagrant case of professional jealousy. Immediately after the benefit Daniel Frohmnan, who had superintended every detail, came forward and charged Marie Cahill and Daniel %. Arthur, her man ager. with having opposed the charity, citing the fact that Miss Cahill's services had been promised, but subsequently MISS JEANETTE NORTHERN Who Made a Hit This Week as the Sou brette in "The Cowboy and the Lady" at the Broadway and Who Has Many Warm Friends in Butte. withdrawn when she learned that she couldn't have the choicest position on the bill. To this Mr. Arthur replied that a year ago he had gone to no end of trouble and much expense in order to bring William II. Crane and Stuart Robson together in one final performance of "The Henrietta" for the benefit of the Actors' Home" and that the performance netted over $5,ooo. As to Miss Cahill's withdrawal, he declared it was done upon her physician's orders. At any rate the squabble has created quite a stir, and the end is not yet, for Mr. Arthur most emphatically declares he will' bring an action against Mr. Frohman for defa mation of character. Stuart Robson Jokes. Stuart Robson, by the way, indulged in a little joke at his own expense one day last week. lie has been ill in this city for the past fortnight, and when he had suffaoiently regained his strength he start ed for Broadway with a suit case blled with wigs. Like all professional baggage, this suit case was labeled with the name of the Stuart Robson company. At the Grand Central station he entered a street car in which several out-of-town people took seats. Among them was a long bearded farmer who noted the inscription on Mr. Robson's traveling bag, and saids "Be you one of those troopers?" "I travel with the Robson company," answered Robson, politely. "What do you do?" pursued the farmer. "I'm only the property boy," replied Mr. Robson. "Well, well," replied the stranger, 'I re member Stuart Robson when he played 'Bertie. the Lamb.' lie looked very odd, too. tie must be a pretty old man now, eighty, I should judge." "Eighty-three to a minute," replied Robson, and then he jumped from the car lest he be called upon to prove it. Latest Amusement Novelties. Considering that the Lenten season Is well under way, this has been a rather busy week theatrically. Barnum & Bailey's "only show" opened its regular ripring season at the Madison Square (;arden un der the most favorable of auspices. All of the old-time circus features were dis played, and a number of new ones. The biggest feature is the big spectacle en titled, "The Tribute to the BalkiS," which is put on in Bolossy Kiralfy's best style. Several hundred ballet dancers are em ployed in this. New York goes circus mad about this time every year, just as do the smaller cities, and the amount of money which the Barnum & Bailey show will take from the metropolis will go a long way toward paying the expenses of the monster organization for several weeks to come. Elsie De Wolfe, In a broad new piece replete with brand new gowns and seen ery and all that sort of thing, was an other of the newcomers, Miss De Wolfe has not as yet been very fortunate in the selection of her plays, and it is doubtful if her season at the Madison Square theater will be a very prosperous one. Miss De Wolfe once remarked that she was tired of being "Charles Froh. ntan's clothesline," but it seems that she will continue to act as her own. Her gowns are featured In the advertisements and press stories about her acting. The new play is a comedy in which Miss De ,olf' ft caalled upon to execut* a skirt dance which she has been reheahsing fog geveral months. ., Quite as important and far more In. ;teresting to the average Broadway theater. *ocr was the first metropolitan appearance of "The Pride of Pilsetn" at the Broadway theater. Henry W. Savage in this opera a.rms to have found another success. This already has been decreed on the road, end G(otham's critics have not hesitated to fall into line. Viola Allen. For several days the rumor has been rife that Viola Alien will leave the man. 'go;nent of Liobler and company at the qnd of this season. It is said that she is dissatistied with the plays that have Ot given her of late. Both Ltdbler t'o. and Miss Allen have denied the reiurt, but it continues to find oredenee nevertheless. Charles B. Dillingham is one of the managers who are said to have earnestly sought this star to add to his already rapidly growing list of attrao. Lions. It is known that Sam S. Shubert, of the Shubert Brothers, journeyed all the way to Buffalo in hope of obtaining her ig.nature to a contract, but upon his arrival found that he could not gain an audience with her. Empire Stook Company. Mfuch surprise was caused here by the news that Charles Frohman is not to con. tinue his Empire Theater Stock company after this season. This was thought his pet org:anization just as it was presumed that hlis brother, Daniel, was proudest of the stock company he maintained first at the l.ycetum and then at l)aly's. Daniel Frohman dispelled this belief so far as he was concerned a year ago, for his conpany went out of existence last seaw son.. c'larles Frohman has decided to star Ml;irgaret Anglin next year and to have for her support several of the most prom iht.nt Iplayers now behind her in the Em pire Stock company. Charles Richman, the presetnt leading man, also is to enter the stellar ranks, but not under the Frhman management. Iliac affairs will be attenlded to by Weher and Fields, who thtls Inake a step into a kind of prlduction far different froem anything they have yet att.tmpted. Mr. Frohman did once have an idea of starring Rich man:, buint it was dissipated in differences thl. actor and manager had over the foidl nis of the fortmer for thorougluihred Iorces, it is said. la;ny stars of good magnitude have cot.e from the IEmpire company in the dzecl years of its existence.
