During tho past week Lhcro havo boon
.1 number of rumors in circulation re
garding probablo changes in the tlio
litors oC Zion; that this ono had beon
leased, that n change- would occur in
this or in that ono, aud tho positive
statement that tho Orphcum theater
would build a now thoator on State
Thoro wore rumors that tho Salt Lako
theater might p:iss into other hands.
Speaking on this subject, Manager
George D. Pypcr put a quietus upon
theso rumors by making a positive
statement to Tho Tribuno on Friday
ovoning. Said Mr. Pypor:
"You can say for tho board o direc
tors of tho Salt Lako Dramatic nBsocia

H Ono of the besb-lmown directors and
producers in tho theatrical profession,
BVH has been secured by Theo. Lorch to
r.tagc and produce all his plays at the
Grand theater.
i
tho Colonial in a week since it was
openctl.
Tho Grand, loo. has had a record
week. 1'or tho lirst time for many moons
tho box oflieo was compelled to turn
people aw.iv. tho house having been
entirely sold oul. Mr. Lorch and his
company aro popular wilh Grand pa
trons. Maude Leono and her players havo
nlso had a remarkable wook at the
Buugalow. Thoro havo been capacity
audiences nearly every performance
Miss Leone is proving tho most popular
actress that has appeared at the Bung
alow and her company is an excop
tionall.y good one.
The 'Orphcum continues to bo a gold
mine. Tho bill of tho past week has
been an exceptional ono, tho best, in
fact, for a number of -weeks.
The Mission 1ms been dark, sinco
Thursdav, duo to the fact that their
now bilf was unable lo arrive, tied up
by floods in Nevada.
A production which, for various roa
sons, ought to make a special appeal to
Salt Lake Cilv audiences, will bo seen
at the Salt Lake theater four nights
and Wednesday matinee, beginning to
morrow night. "whoa tho "Round Up'
will be presented for the lirst timo in
this city. "Tho Pound Up" has boon
ono of the genuine successes of tho past
season in Now York and tho character
of the commendations given it havo
been impressive. Tho play has boon
called a melodrama, but it is said that
tho authors havo shown that big, thrill
ing melodrama need not bo marred by
psncfloheroics and patent, sonlimcnt.
Thus thoro aro indications that the play
as a play will merit tho patronage of
local theater-goers. Thoro aro othor
reasons why tho engagement should bo
out of the ordinary. Jlcnding tho big
companv which has boon appearing in
"Tho Pound Up" sinco tho original
New York production was made is
Maclyn Arbuckle. a player who Iuib
won n moot generous measure of suc
cess. The settings of the story of "Tho
P-ouud Up" aro said lo bo most strik
ing. A series of cpisodcB of western
life, a3 they might really havo occurred
ROYAL TEAOT,
In "Browster's Millions," at tha Colonial theater all this week, beginning
this, Sunday, evening.
I Salt Lake thoator is neither for salt
nor for lease. Tho association has con
tracts with Klaw and Erlanger,, Charles
Prohman and Al Hayman which will
Tun for ten years yet. Wo shall con
tinue to present the best that the gen
tlemen named can secure. Later on wo
will build a lobby about the theater,
but tho inlorior will not be dismantled
and little if anv change will be made in
it owing to the i'acfc that its acoustics are
perfect and any change might destroy
this." This means that tho famousold
.playhouse will continue as it has. Next
Tuesday will be the forty-second anni
versary sinco tho first play was pre
sented in this theater. It is one of four
playhousos in the United States that
ha'o stood theso many years. Tho pieces
presented were tho "Pride of the Mar
ket" and "State Secrets." Tt may be
that in "The Pound Up," which will bo
presented at tho thoator on Tuesday, a
roforenco may be made to tho anniver
sary of tho birth of the old theater.
At tho Colouial tho engagement of
Mjix Figman during the past week in
"Mary Jane's Pa," was a record week
for tins popular playhouse, more peo
ple' attending the nine performances
1 than ever passed through the gati-s of
are said to be set forth, with ono or two
rlimaxos of a truly thrilling character,
lu i ho third act an entire baud of In
dians aro seen riding horseback ulong
a narrow cliff edge and the act ends
with a battle scene which is said to bo
tho most realistic picturo over shown
on the stage. Thcao aro tho big epi
sodes in a story which is described as
a real romance, with incidental comedy
of tho most natural kind. Mr. Ar
buckle as "Slim" Hoover is said to
have a role which is far better suited
to his style than tho leading rolo in
"Tho County Chairman," in which he
was last seen hero. The cast includes
besides Maclyn Arbuckle, Albert Phil
lips, Joseph "M. Lothinn. Sidney Gush
ing, Elmer Grandin, "William Conklin,
S. L. Pichardson. James Asburu,
Jacques Martin, Ogden Crane, Fred R.
Stanton, "Texas" Coopor, Grace Ben
ham, Mario Taylor and Paula Gloy. A
maliueo will be given on Wednesday.
Beginning with a mitnee tod.13' Tho
odoro Lorch, Miss Cecil Fay and their
strong supporting company will offer
theater-goers of Salt Lake at tho Grand
theater the great drama containing
heart absorbing inlorest from the rise
of the curtain until its final drop on tho
last act. "A Father's Devotion" will
be the offering and promises to more
than please tho patrons of tho Grand.
The play has been staged and will be
'produced tinder tho personal supervision
of George L. Graves, who is known ns
one of the best and most efficient stago
directors in the business, this fact alone
boing enough to guarantee a first-class
production. The scenes of this great
drama aro laid in Knglund with tho
exception of the first act. which shows
a western mining enmn in tho Pising
Sun mining district. All characters in
this act are of a decidedly western typo,
most prominent among them being Dick
Forrester, who leads a double- life, and
whose truo numo is Marble. Ho has
a daughter whom he lovc3 wilh a fond
devotion, by tho name of Margaret.
Dick Forrester is kuown in tho neigh
borhood as an all around tough and
crook, making saloons his headquarters.
During one of his drunken brawls he
kills a man by tho name of Dutch Fin
ucgan, wliich arouses tho vigilance com
mittee, and they order Dick to leave
the camp. This ho refuses to do. He
is seized by the-angry mob and is about
to meet with a lynching when Gerald
Austin, who is in love with Dick For
rester's dnughtnr. comes upou the scene
and effects Forrester's cscapo. Ever
grateful for savin" his life. Dick For
rester taJ:cs a card from his pocket,
and tearing it in two, givos one part to
Gerald Austin, telling him that i thnv
ever should meet and ho uo-dd need

a friend ho would give Mm his luro if
necessary. Ho then escapes bv mount
ing the top of a coach of a passenger
train. This train sceno Las been made
very realistic bv means of stage mech
anism. Dick Forrester goeo back to
England, where ho continues his drink
ing and debauchery, and whero ho en
ters into a compact Avith threo others
to thieve and plunder. Dick Forrester
and Dixon commit robbery, and in tho
raid tho old man is killed. Suspicion
points to his son. who goos away and
conceals rimsclf in an old barn. While
thus concealed the robbers como to the
barn and divide tho spoils, and acci
dentally discover Gerald Austin, tho son
whom thoy take and bind hand and foot
and condemn him to death and Dick
Forrester is selected as the man to per
form tho t.erriblo deed. Ho is about
to do his sworn dutv when ho discovers
a card in the nockcts of his victim
which ho recognizes as tho ono givon
Jo a friend who bad once saved his life.
ITcro follows somo very dramatic work
which will give Mr. Lorch every oppor
tunity to show his versatility as an act
or. There will .bo matinees" Wednesday
and Saturday.
A real Japancs act, with Japanese
actors and .Tapaneso music on Japanese
instruments, with a setting of Japa
nese sconery, will bo tho fcaturo of tho
now bill that opens at tho Orphouiu
called "Tho Eight Geisha Girls." This
oclqt of boauties from tho land of tho
Mik'ado sing, danco and othcrwiso en
tertain in the manner of tho geishas,
who aro tho trained eutortainors of
Japan. Thoir posturo dancing is de
scriptive of .lapaucso poems and stories.
Somo of tho dnucing is intended lo bo
and is of humorous character. Other
dances doal with historical episodes.
Theso are danced to tho accompjiniment
of descriptivo vorses chanted by chor
isters to the music of samisens, which
are tho Japanese equivalent of tho banjo.
This act was imported from Japan lor
this tour and has proven an unquali
fied success everywhere Tho act is
novel and distinctly pleasing to every
audionco.
Brown, Harris and Brown havo kept
audiences in ovory Orplwuui in a con
dition of laughtor with their raolango
of f'jn called "Just to Laugh, That 'a
All." Hnrry Brown is an exceptionally
olovor comedian; Miss Yiola Harris
wears handsome gDwna aud her sing
ing is of a quality to groatly lwlp the
act. Elbert Brown renders "Wait Till
tho Sun Shines, Nellio" and "Jcssa
miuo, two very tuneful numbers.
J. Francis Dooley and Miss Corinmo
Saylcs havo a sketch which they call
"Pavement Pntter." It is a dialoguo
with musical setting that serves to givo
an opportunity for the oxtrcmoly good
comedy work of tho learn. Both Mr.
Dooley and Miss Sayloa have been a
nronouncod hit olsowhore. The PorH.ind
Orcgonian said of tho Orphcum bill last
week: "After viewing tho cntiro bill
at tho Orphoum, which us a wholo
strikes a rattling good aycrago, any
jury would unanimously ' aivard tho
bolls, bluo ribbons and bouquets to ono
Jimmio Lucas, who comcdes via tho
singing route, and to J. Francis Dooley
and his vost pocket assistant, Corinno
Savlos. whoso act is n wholo show in
itself."
Jean Clermont's burlesque circus
comes on tho stage in a circus wagon,
drawn bv a mulo. Then tho dogs,
ponies and roosters aro unloaded and
tho tent pitched in regulation stylo,
after which tho show begins. T ho
ponies do military drilling and other
tricks, whilo tho dogs and roosters havo
a variod entertainment. One French
poodlo plays on tho piano and a fox
terrier barks tho "Merry ; Widow"
waltz and believes in his music enough
to try to danco to it.
Madamo Panita, tho fluto virtuoso,
is another importation from Europe,
brought to this country for tho Or
phcum circuit. Madamo Panita has
made- a tremendous success everywhere.
.linimy Lucas, already mentioned in
tho Oro'gonian oxcorpt, is also on tho
bill with a singing and dancing turn.
Lucas last season was co-star in "Tho
Golden Girl," but returned to vaudc
villo this year, lie is a famous song
writor, his most celebrated success bo
ing "I Love Mv Wife, but Oh, You
Kul."
Douglas and Douglas have an enter
taining sketch which they call "Tho
Clown and tho Girl," from the roles
assumed by tho two members of tho
team. Thoy nlso carry a dog wliich
figures in tlio tumbling" aud is said to
bo a remarkablo canino acrobat. Thoro
will bo new orchestral selections and
new kinodromo picturos.
That tho people of Salt Lako City
take kindly to high-class vaudeville at
moderate prices has been amply proven
at tho Mission theater. Each week's
bill has been a little bit better than tho
one proceeding it. with the result that
tho patronago of tho popular Third
South street house has become more
liberal than over. For tho week com-liKMH-iug
Thursday afternoon next Man
ager Clark will offer what is promised
as ono of the best, if not tho best, bill
that the honso has .vet offered. Every
act on tho bill comes well recommended
nnd the amiisoment lovers of this city
will havo no reason to regret having
seen the bill.
Tho hoayinor of the new bill will
be tho Joo Boganny troupo, European
artists, who present the "Lunatic
Bakers." Tho press and public of Seat
tle, where the number was recently pre
sented, unito in declaring that it is
"tho greatest comedy acrobatic net
over seen in tho northwest under any
management or diroction." Tho act
is described as a scream from start lo
finish and has won unstinted praise
in overy city in which it has beon pre
sented. A second headlincr on the bill js
promised in A, W. Fremont and com
pany wilh the dramatic ono-act play,
' ' The Way of the West. " Mr. Fremont
appears in tho character of a Wolls
Fargo express messenger, who is held
up ny a robber, who is later run to
earth in a houso in wliich the messenger
and a woman passenger have taken
rcfugo during a storm. Tho robbor is
a brother of tho woman, but; slip does
not recognize him. Tho play is full
of tenso dramatic situations. Mr. Fro
mont is supported by Claudo Chadon,
"The Round Up"
MACLYN AEBUCKLE, PAULA GLAY,
As "Slim" Hoover. An Polly Hope.
In "The Round Up," at the Salt Lako theater for four night3, beginning
Monday, March 7.
the robber, and Miss Mary Frey, sister
of tho robber.
Another strong featuro of the bill is
promised in Sally Stcmbler, a well
known and popular vaudeville star, who
is tho possessor of an excellent voice,
a magnetic, stago presence, in addition
lo which sho is a good dresser. Miss
Stcmbler will sing a number of songs
in which she has mado a hit in every
city in which sho has appeared.. A
laugh a minuto. and then somo, is prom
ised by Eddio Dolan, an eccentric come
dian, who has been ono of tho features
of tlio Sullivan and Considine circuit
for tho last fow months. Edgar Bergor,
European equilibrist, comes highly
recommended nnd promises a number
of new features in his act. Tho Mis
sion orchestra in now selections and
now moving pictures will go to make
up tho bill.
Ono of the most prominent theatrical
offerings of tho season will bo tho ap
pearance hero all this week at tho
Colonial theater, beginning tonight with
matinees Wednesday anu Saturday, of
tho Cohan and Harris comedians, with
Poyal Tracy in Frederic Thompson's
massive production of the big Now
York, London and Chicago success,
"Brewster's Millions," a comedy
which has achieved a remarkable bit
on both sides of tho Atlantic, and
which is now being presented in four
languages. Besides its originality in
construction, plot and story, it contains
somo marvelous scene effects and is de
scribed and commented upon as' ono of
tho wittiest comedies presented in re
cent years. Tho play is a stage ver
sion of Gcorgo Barr McCutcbcon's live
lv and successful book of that name.
The storv is odd and tells of tho ef
forts o'f Montgomery ("Monty'')
Brcwstor to speud a million dollars left
him by his grandfather, within a year,
and to prosorve complete secrecy re
garding his ultimate oojoct. Ho is not
permitted to givo or gamblo it away,
nor is ho permitted to endow any in
stitution or orccfc any permanent me
morial. This is mado a conditon un
der which he inherits a fortuno seven
times as vast from an uuelo who had
conceived and nourished a bitter hatred
for tho grandfather.
The leading production at the Sbubcrt
this week is an Edison subiect, "The
Eleventh Hour." Two comedies are on
the programme. Thoy aro "The Egg
Trust" and "Pags, Old Iron." An
industrial picturo is also on tho bill, that
of animal farming and bird farming.
Appropriate musical selections have
been prepared by tho orchestra, and the
illustrated .ballads are in tho hands of
a popular and competent singer.
At tho Elite theater this week an ex
ceptionally strong bill is being present
ed, two excellent feature subjects being
included in the programme. "To Save
Her Soul," a biograph drama, is one
which deserves special mention, owing
to tho impressive lesson it leaches. Au
othor subject which will prove justly
popular is an educational picture from
the famous Urban-Eclipse studios,
"From the Fighting Top of a Battle
ship in Action." This picture lakes the
audience right into the groat turret of
a "Dreadnaught" with twin twelve
inch quick-firing guns. Every detail can
bo closely inspected, so perfect is the
photography. "A Daughter of the
Sioux" and "Lifo Among tho Bandits
of Itab'" conclude tho picture pro
gramme. Bert Olin and Arthur Wake
will have charge of tho musical end of
tho performance, and the latter will sing
some new songs in the spotlight. Two
new illustrated ballads will complete
ono of the best programmes of the sea
son. The feature subject at the Luna the
ater this week is an excellent subject
from tho Pa tho Freres studio in Paris,
and is taken from one of the most beau
tiful short stories in literature. This
production, "Tho Violin Maker of Cre
mona." is a faithful reproduction from
a littlo gem from the pen of Francoiso
Coppee. Another subject sure to mako
a hit is "The Newly Weds," a bio
graph comedy. "An Eye for au Eve"
is also included in the programme. The
Luna orchestra will play some oxcellent
seloctions, among which will bo the
Boheminn Life Overture and selections
from Victor Herbert's "Wonderland."
At the Isis theater all this week is
a film which will rank higher than most
others, drawn from Biblical history, a
beautiful hand .colored drama, "Joseph
Sold by His Brethren." Three other
films, "Life's Portrayals." "The Final
Settlement" and an industrial picture
of the mica mines in the Ullugura
mountains are also on tho bill. Lew
Halsott will sing two illustrated songs
and Harry Wolff, leader of the Isis
orchestra, promises some oxcellent mu
sical numbers.
At tho Bungalow this week "A
Bachelor's Pomanco" will bo pro
duced by tho Mack-Leo no plavcrs, be
ginning Sunday night. This fa ono of
tho most delightful of comedy dramas,
carrying with it a touch of homo life,
tho aadncsa nnd lonolinoon of celibacy, u
wido Htrcnk of humor and allogothor
full of Jifo. Tho leaning characters
will be in the hnndu of Mr, Mack and
Mitiit Leono, Mr. Mack being soon In a
character entirely now to IiIh Salt Lako
friends and a Nplcndid vehlolo for his
clovorncBfl. Mias Lootie will bo cap
tivating as ever, and hitu ample oppor
tunity for a full display of hor nrllHllc
abilities in catchy, Htriklng dinloguo
and startling situations, such aa can bo
entertainingly presented only by a
woman o her beautj; and drama tic
poise. The balance of tho iC"8l "
eludes Irene Ontlrim Pearl Lthier, Mrs.
Kiscadden, Messrs. Booth, Moore an
Ronnie, and tho rehearsals havo found

tragedian, will give an entertainment
at the Salt Lako theater Tuesday e cu
ing March .1.1. Ho will l)q assisted by
capable people from this city
where. Professor Lecatza is lrom the
King's Dramatic college Athens, and
comes highly recommended He wi I
act and recite in both Greek and Eng
lish. A play depicting lifo in the remote
villages of China has been written In
the Rev. JL J. Vyvcb.org. pastor nf the
Reformed church at Hurley. . .. lor
the purpose of bringing beforo clnircn
members an idea of the conditions
which foreign missionary work is do
signed to alloviate. Tho play will bo
staged by the young people of his own
church in April and will bo later given
in neighboring towns. The pastor
playwright has spent much timo on it
and savs thai it not only shows accu
rately the costumes of the people, but
conv'evs also a good idea of thPir man
ner of thought and conversation.
The Drama League, which is to have
for its purpose the creation of an en
ligbtoned slaving public throughout
tho United States, will have its birth
in the First Congregational church in
Evanstou, 111., March 22. At tho meet
ing it is expected there will assemble
delegates from some 1G5 clubs and
women's organizations throughout
tho central west to discuss the best
way in which to undertake the work in
hand. Tho invitation sent out by the
Drama club of Evanstou contains this
statement of purpose for which tho
loagno'is lo be formed: "In a nutshell,
ihe gist of the matter is tho banding
together in one delegated body of all
tlio forces already working for the im
provement of the drama."
After be,ing dark for four days the
Mission theater will most likely open
MADAME SOHU3IANN-HEINK, 'K

but wero held "by tho floods "on the
Southern Pacific in Nevada, had reached
Sacramento aud had been detoured via
Portland and should reach this city

later confirmed by one received at the
local office of the Oregon Short Lino,

these two telograins, Manager Clark:
stated Salurdaj- Afternoon that the
first performance of what is promisod
as the bost .bill yet offered at the popu
lar Third South street house would

The last lines that Eugene wrote for
the Chicago Daily News, just a few
weeks beforo his death, were about
Dcnnian Thompson. They were just four
lines in Thyme:
God bless you. Dcnt..an Thompson, for
the good y do our hearts,
Wilh this music an' these memories
o ' youth ;
God bless ye for the faculty that tops
all human arts,
The good ol' Yankee faculty of
truth.
The New York Morning Telegraph, a
journal of wide influence in tho theater
nominates the following as high crimes
and misdemeanors and suggests appro
priate penalties for those who commit
them:
"The aclor who opens a valise on
the stage, takes out woman's lingerie
and then makes dreadful faces and tries
to look like a hunted auimal, should bo
hanged and quartered.. It's the oldest
stuff on the stage.
"'The vaudeville player who pleads
wilh nn audience to either 'sing or
whistle, boys,' should bo shot on tho
spot.
"Anv player who makes a miserable
dog walk across the stage on his hind
legs and then makes long and elaborate
bows with a smirking and powdered
mug should bo burned at the stake.
"No matter how new the answer may
bo to the question. 'Why does. a chickon
cross the roadl' it is bound" to a
drivel.
"The vaudovillian who utters an
idiotjsm and thou says to his partner:
'A littlo over their heads,' should bo
loaded with chains and led to tho North
river nnd hurled ovorboard.
