Elks' opera house last night was even better than tho first, the night before. The work went better, the amateurs having gotten used to changing costumes those that had to and making uuick en trance, tht; effect whs a great deal nearer the prefessional perfection that is always associated with the efforts of the master author - playwright, William Gillette. The snap and jingle of the. war seemed to be much ttie more real by reason of the familiari ty the evening previous had given to the lornl thespians. It is all very well to talk about natural ability and all that sort of thing, but it is use less to overlook the f;,ct that those whose daily business it is to speak over the footlights, naturally have a greater freedom of action when speaking before an audience than do ' those who do not so make it their This all, however, does not. inter- Caroline M'tford, From across the. street Ruth Griffin Lewis Dumont, U.

J. L. B. Alexander fro wjtn naturaI n,',iiity, and i'n that direction the work of the cast in Secret Service" was a revelation to the friends of the young performers. Abilitv was everywhere. The voung women and young men each demon strated it, while the ability of the director could bo road between the lines. These few things are- the rea sons for t lie show being a popular one, and it will doubtless be remem bered as the most artistic perform ance that has ever been staged for an Elks' benefit by amateur per formers. Two of the female characters stand out with peculiar distinctness. These are Miss P-erniee Warren Egleston and Miss Ruth Griffen. The former excelled in the lines requiring pathos and sympathy, while in the lighter maidenish touches. Miss Griffen was the success of the evening. Mrs. Hannah Egleston as the mother of the heroine, was a sweet gentle woman who suffered because of her losses during the war. Her husband was at the front, one son was wounded, and the younger one would go. Miss Gray, as Miss Kittridge, a "sweet sister," who was continually preparing for tho wounded at the front, looked and acted the port to perfection. Special mention must be made of Miss Edith Teel. Miss Teel wore cork on her face nnd arms. of Marster while he am at dn front" in a way that drew great credit to her work. Of the male parts, the first and foremost is that of Frank Hilderhran, who essayed tho character made famous by Gillette himself. It is a peculiar character, a spy. It re quires large ability to portray it properly, yet in the performance, so natural was his bearing and so easily spoken were his lines, that he liter ally brought down the house on more than one occasion. He was run a close second by Sidney P. Osborne, who was the villain of the play from the standpoint of the heroine. In a reversal of the parts Mr. Osborn would have gotten the applause while Mr. Hilderhran would have been re ferred to as running him a close race for the premier. This is how well j the work of tho two measured up. i Leon Tolleson was the youthful lover in the cast. His admiration of the. young miss portrayed by Miss Griffen reached the point several times when he actually held her hand and said "she was pretty good." She was, and so was he at least the audience thought so. George Crowder was the. negro manservant in the. part and he did that part with just the right amount of heel shuffling walk to carry it off with success. As is the case with "old timey niggahs" the Yankees fooled him. Ingram T. Sparks spoke his lines nicely and looked gallant enough in his uniform. Leslie T. Hardy pro vided the swashbuckler typ of lieu tenant to perfection having a snap and go to his movement that indi cated he was more than the ordinary "aide." General A. R. Gatter, "sah," was superb. Gatter nlways is when given a part carrying with it the essence of command. A. C. Page was I n. sergeant and acted so, and a num ber of members of the order whose names appear on the dramatis per sona? were the "high privates," in the rear rank. Of them it can be said, "the play would not have been complete without them," a statement which hardly goes when referring to the men whose names appeared on HUERTA CONFERS WITH (Continued from Pago One.) the bill but who never "showed," as th vaudevill gent would say. There will bo another performance tonight. It should play to a crowded house of Elks and visitors tonight for the play is worth it. One man was persuaded to go the first night against his will, having a. contempt for amateurs. The record is not com plete unless it shows that the gentle man in question not only remained for the entire performance, but aetti ally went again last night. This is itself the highest praise.

"I find," Senator Smith said, "that nine-tenths of the members of the senate stand behind the administra tion in its demand for reparation. If the government is compelled by de fiance of Huerta to land armed forces at Mexican ports, I do not believe it will he necessary' ,n have authorization from congress for such a move." Numbers of the senate committee on foreign relations were apprised of the. administration's plans by Senator Shively, acting chairman, and Sen ator Lodge, ranking republican mem ber of the committee, who conferred with the president early in the day. Tlio possibilities of the situation were considered, the conclusion being that the fnlted States must enforce Admiral Mayo's demand that Mexi co's federal forces saJue the flag, no matter what the consequences may be. It was pointed out by members of the. committee that the authority of congress to land armed forces in Mexico constitutes a practical dec- j laration of war and that a formal j declaration of war probably will not be made in any event, because this nation recognizes no formal govern ment in Mexico. Some In congress held the view that tht latest view of the. 1'nited States toward Mexico means actual intervention and that this govern ment will proceed, despite reparation for past insults, to blockade ports on both coasts, that the Rio Grande border forces will be augmented by powerful reinforcements, and a cam paign begun to force an end to Huerta and tho establishment of a Mexican government which will com mand recognition by tho United States. it is ridiculous for anyone to think," Senator Shively said after a conference with ITesident Wilson, "that the t'niled States in this move toward Mexico is bluffing. The time for tcmporihlng has ended, and the patience of this government i ex hausted. We are for peace, but not for peace at the sacrifie of the dig nity of the nation." Few discordant notes were sounded in congress today. Representative Mendell of Wyoming charged that the president sought to use the Atlantic fleet to enforce the mandates of his personal prejudices against Huerta. Representative Karthol.it of Mis sourt, asserted that the refusal of Huerta to salute tho flag will twenty-one guns should not precipitate saenfiee of American life. Senator Works of California issued a state ment criticizing the attitude of the administration. More information describing the ar- i rest of the American bluejackets at i iainp:.'o was rev. aled in the day's J conferences at the White House. It . was learned authoritatively that the ; party of blue jackets from the D,,l Jphin went ashore with Assistant Pay jm.ister Copp to get gasoline ami sup plies. AH hut two landed to. get sup- ; plies and while gene a Mexican of t ricer arrived ,n the scene. Ho ciaimeii. tho prrty should not have landed where they did and ordered the two bluejackets from the whale boat, whieh flew the American flag. Jbw were unarmed and aceompan ied him. voluntarily. Tho other mem iitva ot the party were arrested while on shore. They all were pa ruoeoio prison, out Were intercepted by another Mexican officer, who marched them back to tho dock, communicated with his superiors nnd released them. The ordering of the bluejackets from a boat which was flying the stars and stripes and con sidered technically 'American soil, was regarded by Rear-Admiral Mayo as requiring an apology, the punishment of the Mexican officer and a salute of twenty-one guns. The first two of the demands were complied with, but the local federal authorities asked for an extension of time during which to consult with the Huerta government in Mexico City. President Wilson told those who conferred with him that there had been no notification to the fleet of any prohibition against landing blue jackets where docked and while plac ing the utmost emphasis on the Tampieo Incident, reviewed other of fenses such as the arrest of an Amer ican orderly carrying mail at Vera Cruz, the attempt to exercise censor ship and delay an official message and other episodes designed to show studied attempt on tho part of the Huerta government to offend the I'nited states. But for the fact that no government is recognized by America and a state of anarchy- ex isted, the president is said to have declared to members of congress, he would hnve recalled Charge O'Shaiigh nessy promptly.

Mrs. Kane, who later told her story at the police Mation, was set upon oy the two hold-ups at the corner of Third street and Monroe. At first she screamed and resisted, but they took her handbag nnd extracted thtrclrom the sum of J40 in money, a forty-dollar check and a gold watch. While they were standing on the corner, a man. ttracted by her cries came rushing up and started the bandits running. Although attired lightly, and shod in arpet slippers, tho pursuer kept up the chase. In the meantime someone had called up the police station, saying, There's something going on here. Officer Shrader ran out the police atnd to the corner of Washington and First street. As he. stood there wait- ng for Officer liarnum, the two rob bers ran by, going south on the west side of the street. They were merely rotting past, and he could not see any hing in their behaviour to suspect. When the pursuers had arrived, it was who had held up Mrs. Kane and a posse f policemen spread out into the south part of town to look them up. But there was no luck. The lark corners had swallowed the two as completely as though the earth had yawned be. fore them. Mrs. Kane came on to the city hall and informed the officers of her loss She could not describe the assailants very well, as it was quite dark at eleven o'clock but she said she thought one wore a light suit and a black hat. Later in the night a drunk was picked up on the southside, attired as she had described. He was thrown in, but there was nothing to connect him with the robbery. In running through town, the pair passed many groups of people going home from the shows. In spite of the cries of the pursuers, no one offered to stop the fleeing culprits. One group of five men, loitering on the comer at Iterryhill's was warned in plenty of time, but made no effort to stop the thieves. WELCOME B.P.O.E.
