"The Barrier" No* en Route to the Western Coast on Extended trip The first fruits of the truce de declared between the warring theatri cal factions, the National Theajtre Owners on one side and Klaw and Er langer's, called the theartical syndi cate on the other, will be the first presentation here of Klaw and Erlang er's production of the Barrier. This latest success by Rex Beach, has proven his. greatest effort and a long run at the New Amsterdam theatre in New York, and comes di rect from there on its first transcon tinental tour. No play in years has gained the notoriety that this one has. This fact is accounted for by the greatest interest taken by the Aniican public in Alaska, the New Eldorado, and it is predicted that next summer will see a greater rush to Alaska than ever was known even in the wildest Klondyke days.
