Dirt is fairly flying on the excavation for the foundation far the new smelter to be built southeast of Butte by the Pitts burg & Montana Copper company, and the inte-rest in the enterprise Increases daily. Forty teanis were at work today and as soon as the excavation is finished it is ex pected a large force of men will be placed at work on the foundlations and the walls of the smelter and other buildings. Tl.ere is cmosideralle activity In real et.ite in that locality. Local real estate nlen report lna;lly inquiries respectIng properly in the vicinity of the new smelter Site. It is said the price of corner lots In the adjoining .Mcqueen addition has doubled and in some intlances quadrupled in the last few days. The I'ittshbmg & Montana company liarceld mnan at work today digiging post hailes for a high board fence, to be built around the entire property. It is presumed the company resorts to this to keep out the public and to prevent an inspection of its plant, which, from all accounts, bids fair to work a revolution in copper snelting. N'o one connected with the company will talk for publlication, but it is reliably as sertedl the company will be able to suc cessfully treat ore carrying as little as I!; per cent iI copper. This of itself is an indication that when the new smelter is in operation there will be so.mething doing in copper smelting in M.iontana. It is said to be the intention of the company to push work on the construction of one Garretson furnace for immediate use, with the intention of adding more furnaces of that st)le as soon as the capacity of the plant demands it. Interest in the new smelter was height ened today by the announcement that S. s . Kemper, acting in the interest of east ern parties, had closed an option on a group of copper claims in the Horse canyon, north of the Columbia Gardens and about one-quarter of a mile east o the new smelter. The understanding is that the parties who are acquiring these properties will sink shafts and otherwise develop them. Whether the eastern people whom Mr. Kemper represents are the same as those identified with the new smelter cannot be learned, brut it is fair to presume that there is some sort of a connection.

Reminiscent of everything that anyone has ever seen or read. for all the popular themes, from Adam's famous anthem, "Oh ? when will the ark light, so that we may have fresh eggs?" to "King Dodo," are introduced, the show as a whole was far beyond the expectation of those of the long-suffering who were judging the Overlands by the average amateurs and had never seen them do their stunts. Praise for Howard. And right here it should be remarked that to the management, notably to Jack Howard, is due great praise, for the per formance, which is somewhat unwieldly and of the sort to dazzle the average amateur stage manager, went off without a hitch. Easily the hit of the bill Is the cake walk turn done by D'Gay Stivers and Miss Geraldine Forbis, 'vhose amazing steps to the tune of "You Ain't No Actor,' were surely never duplicated inside the Broadway theater, or out of it. Seriously speaking, Miss Forbis is a dainty little creature, made a vision in red by an artistic modiste-as for the only Stivers, he was an angel-in the sense that he seemed to tread on air. Nor were the wits of the endmen ever pieces de resistance of the first part, less nimble than the legs of the calkwalkers. They were George Busch, E. P. Mullin, Reno Sales and -Bob LeBeau, with the bones, and D'Gay Stivers, S. E. Schwartz, Ben, Crosby and Tom Markley, tambos. Holds Its Breath. When these were Introduced by In terlocutor Frederick T. Greene, who, by the way, was made to appear exceedingly so before the endmen were done with him, the audience involuntarily held its breath. No screen had been placed by the foot lights, as is the time-honored custom at amateul minstrel shows, and there they were- exposed to the eggs and insults of the multitude. But if any had egrs of archaelogical in terest, they kept them in their pockets, abashed, doubtless, by the far more ancient lineage of the humor (?) which might easily have been appreciated by Ham, Shem or Japhet. The numbers in the first part were as a whole without a blemish and apparently made the hugest sort of a hit with the eo pIe who pay, for round after round of aP plause greeted the soloists and the choir isters, and many encores were required. Members of the Chorus. The chorus consisted of J. W. Thomas, W. D. Fenner, John rJbreise, Jack Mfur ray, r. H, Butler, Charles Boone Jr., Aam. url Coupe, C. Tobin, Harry HIolp, ... B. Harrinaton, F, P, -Thomas, T, ItR. emp, ichard Callaway, R. M. obbs, . , re.a P. .ý _r~n 14a Ko .l--dldI ii Cstemyh"oo AVa! son, R. P. Barclay-, A. G. Lewis, J. C. Gal braith Dave Rundle, Louis Howard, Marion Jenkins, Horace Merkle, Harry Doering, T. J. Bennett Guy Davidson, P. A. Bell, Frank Riley, Max Kroger, M. S. Largey and Lynn Boyce. These, with an adequate orchestra, far the beat heard in the house this year and under the direction of G. W. Pierce, ren dered a number of well known selection., including the finale to Act I. of "King Dodo," with great effect and precision. The soloists were J. W. Thomas, Harry Doerin , D'Gay Stivers, Richard Calla way, L. P. Mullen, Don Walsh. Of these Mr. Doering daringly attempt ed "Out Where the Billows Roll High," which, by some strange mischance, had been arranged too high for him. The billows rolled 'ligher than his tones, at the end of the stanzas, but nevertheless, his game efforts to scale the notes were well received and wrhn responding to an encore, he was enabled to sing something within his range. Golf Girls Appear. The famous golf girls came upon the olio. It is safe to say that such calves, of just suc; a sort were never glimpsed 'neath golf girls' skirts before. They were, with their gallant escorts, Louis Howard, Lynn Boyce, J. A. Bren ran. M. S. Larsey, Bob LeBeau and T. E. Markley as the girls and Georre Busch, J. C. Galbraith, C. E. Schwartz, Harry Doering, Fred Greene and RIeno Sales. This number probably took more fore thought than any on the bill, yet neces sarily being of a burlesque nature, its merits were lost sight of in the universal concatenation. The hurry and bustle common to a first night performance, however, were particu arly noticeable in this number, especially the bustles. Success of the Season. Other stunts, too numerous to review, insure the success of the season, which is to culminate in a trip to Helena Saturday he closing piece generally known as an afterpart, consisted of a cowboy farce, led by Doering in which the tiero of the plains was shown as he exists in the mind and novels of the penny-a-liners who have never been beyond the Mighty Yellow, ing Father of Waters. Mr. Sully, who was east for leadership of the cowboys was unable to o on and Lis understudy, Doer ing a[ the part cceptably. -he ende.ohn quartet were well re coived in the frest part. Dan Welsh did a funny monologue stunt and in short, everything about the bill s good, of its High Class Muslo. The high class of musle used was a fea ture of the performance. Never has any thipl of such a scale been attempted by local amateurs and it remained for the Overland club to show that the profes sional standardmay be maintained where as amtusar erg~nlatoa le we:l drilled as well as by the big traveling companies. The opening chorus and the closing chorus, from "King Dodo," together with the "Father Time" chorus, from the same opera, are far beyond the reach of or. dinary voices. They were given with a will, great nicety in attack and modula. tion being observed and it is safe to say were rendered fully as well as by Raymond Hitchcock and his star company in the popular piece. Also noticeable were the "Little Widow" chorus and the "Heldleburg" chorus, from "The Prince of Pilsen," as also high class operatic numbers and, like the others were exceptionally well arranged and sung. The arrangement of "Then You'll Remember Me" and "Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep," by Dudley Buck, was very difficult and the way in which these num bers were sung reflects great credit upon the choruses. All in Four Part Harmony. The choruses as a whole were in four. part harmony and composed as they were or twenty of the best male voices in the city, did some work that no light opera company which has visited this city has attempted. Among the end men George Busch and D'Gay Stivers were easily the hit of the evening. Their long strings of jokes kept the audience holding its sides all through the first part. E. P. Mullin sang "I'll Be Busy All Next Week" in a style that brought down the house. He puts lots of life in his work and gets off his stuff like an old-time minstrel man. Ach Louis Schwartz was very funny on the end and made a big hit in the golf girl stunt with his great make-up. Another number which elicited applause was that of Drea J6hnstone and company in "The Princess Yu San." The little girls were trained by Mrs. Harry Symons and made a highly creditable showing. Most of them are nmembers of the "White Rats,." Noticeable among these were Lit tlde Miss Morgan, a tiny tot, who easily won the hearts of the audience. The performance is to be repeated here tonight and tomorrow night, with a mati nee Thursday. Danger of Colds and Grip. The greatest danger from colds and grip is their resulting in pneumonia. If rea sonable care is used, however, and Cham. berlain's Cough Remedy taken, all danger will be avoided. Among the tens of thou. sands who have used this remedy for these diseases we have yet to learn of a single case having resulted in pneumonia, which shows conclusively that it is i certain pre ventive of that dangerous disease. It will cure a cold or anso attack of the .rip in less time than any other treatment. It is pleasant and safe to take. For sale by Passon & Itockefeller, Newbro Drug Ce, Christie & Lye,. Newton DIe.
