''Three Weeks" p?f ?" >
It is here at last, the much debated
novel by Elynor Glynn has now been
on the aim and there won't be much
of a chance for Anthony Comstock
and his partisans to raise a hue and
cry; after all.
Those who visited the Maxine Elliot
Theatre in New York on Thursday.
October Sth. when the picture receiv
ed its initial showing for the avowed
purpose of unfavorably criticising it
were undeniably disappointed.
Those who have read the novel will
notice that the picture follows it al
most without variation, except per
haps in one or two places where cer
tain periods of time have been only
lightly touched on. The remarkable
likeness of the principals of the cast
to the characters in the novel add
greatly to the film version, and ere
ates the impression that they are ac
tually living the lives of the famet
lovers. As it stands by itself, it Is ar
exceptionally entertaining production
entirely original and acted and pro
duccd splendidly by actors and a di
rector who thoroughly understani
their work.
The story is too well known to neec
repeating here, and it is enough tt
say that it is absorbing from start t<
finish.
This tllm masterpiece depicting the
story of a Queen without a countrj
and a King without a throne has beer
announce? for the Grand Theatre to
night and Saturday matinee and night
Remember this is a brand nev,
copy, and you will see a brand new
film on the screen.

BIG SHAFT AT
CENTRAL HOIST,
TREADWELL. BREAKS
TREADWELL. June 19.? A break
occurred in the Central hoist at two
o'clock this morning that will take at
least a month to repair, and may ne
cessitate the closing down of the
hoist tor the next three months.
The break is in the main shaft of
the hoist and is about three feet front
the left end between the drum and
? onm i tmg rod on the engine. This
shaft is probably the heaviest piece of
forged steel in Alaska. It Is 40 feet
long. 19 inches in diameter and
weighs 26 tons.
The closing of this hoist will mean
that extra crews will have to be put
on at the .Mexican and Treadwell
hoist >: in order to supply rock to all
the mills.
The Central hoist was finished a
little over three years ago and is the
largest hoisting plant on the Pacific
Coast, and was intended to supply all
the mill on the Island with the ex
ception of the Ready Bullion.
The reason for the possible long de
lay in the repair work is that in all
probability the shaft will have to be
made in Bethlehem. Pa., and the steel
. works of the country are so rushed
? with war orders that this work will
? have to wait its turn.
Work is being done by the shops
. machinists in preparation for the re
. moval of the broken shaft and the In
, stalling of the new one when it ar
rives.
