ELKS' BIG SHOW
IS , WINNER
Butte Boys Staged a Real
Treat Last Night and Are
Going "Over the Top"
Again This Evening.
We dropped in at the Elks' show at
the Broadway theater last night, an4d
"0Oh. Boy" some show.
We have seen many a home talent
minstrel show, but the one we saw
last night surpassed all hopes. To
say it was a hit is, in our judgment,
putting it mild. It was a scream
from the start.
William Magill Jr., was the stai
of the show, his songs and stunts
calling the applause of the house
again and again. Arthur Rryuan's
solo also was rendered in a very
pleasing manner. So all that (lid not
see the show last night sure missed
a treat. They are going to put It
over again tonight, and take a tip
from us and be there. The commit
tee in charge consists of F. A. Big

Americans rather than in any way in

be un-American, unpatriotic' and dis
loyal to ourselves and the thousands

Ford's reply was 'that is just the
course I expect and sanction your
taking.' In our opinion there are
