THEATRICAL COMMENT The announcements below indicate a lively theatrical season. Tbe Frohman company at tbe Los Angeles are sure ol a warm welcome, and will equally surely give a fine performance. •"a The news comes from San Francisco that Lawrence Hanlsy is going "on the road" with a company, his repertory to consist of The Player, An Ameri can Girl—the latter is by Grattan Don nelly, well known in this city—and Love at Random, written by Fuller Claflin, a San Francisco architect. George Oa bourne will be of the company and stage manager. ••• Mr. Alt Ellinghouse, who is to he in th* management of the Imperial in thit city, is well known hereabouts as an able, aotive theatrical man. Tbe new enter prise should prove a success to its pro moters and to the public »*» Mr. Fitzgerald Murphy, the talented youug dramatist, has abandoned the playwriter't pen for that of the editor of a sooiety bluebook, which will appear this week. This is not tbe most ethical literary work, but it brings in those necessities —dollars. Thia autumn Mr. Murphy intends to produce here his latest drama, Another Man's Wife, which has had a decided success in the east. Many playgoers will remember chub by Anna Belmont, wbo played the part of the young girl in The Butterflies iv Mr. Drew's company. At Salt Lake, while on the stage, she received a tele gram announcing the fatal illness of her mother. She pluckily went through her part, however, sobbing between acta. Charlss Dickson has bsen singing in comic opera this summer, and now re port haa it that Frank Daniels is to get $500 a week to sing in Princess Bonnie, Willard Spencer's new opera. Daniels can do almost everything but sing, which may be the reason Mr, Spencer hired him. Why thia sadden protest against Mad eline Pollard's going on the stage? The ■eptagenarian Janausohek issued a pb.il lipic against the frail Madeline, and now it is aaid the Professional Woman's league will take up the fight against her, and, more incredible still, it is as serted tbat no Chicago manager will conduct her debut. Mies Pollard may be all that the warm est friends of Colonel Breckinridge have charged her with being, but even then she is no worse than dozens of other women who took a tumble in society and landed on tbe stage. After Mrs. Carter, Mre. Potter. Mrs. Langtry, tbe Baroness Blanc, Bettina Padelford and others of that ilk have made more or less of a theatric triumph of their notoriety, why should the line be drawn at Mias Pollard? If a crusade is commenced against ber, in the name of both art and jußtico let it be extended to other women wbo simply make ths stage a cover for questionable careers. And, by tbs way, Mme. Janausohek and tbe Woman's league might as well continue their on slaught to the pug-actors, Bullivan, Cor bett, et al. .** Charlie Meadows, wbo is one of the really truly frontiersmen and cowboys, is in tbe city. Mr. Meadows will be remembered as having been here about a year ago with an excellent wild west Bhow. He ie 6 feet 6 inches in height, weighs proportionally; is a dead shot with rifle or eix-shooter; holds the championship record as a wielder ol tbe lariat; rides like a centaur, andean tell a story, sing a song, or make a speech equal to any of Chauuoey Depew'e. He will be here for a week or two, and will be seen at Redondo and Banta Monica in bis specialties. Announcements. Charles Frohman's Empire Theater Stock company begins an engagement at tbe Los Angeles theater, on tomorrow evening.

Its subject matter, which deals with the endless duel of "sex against sex," has been more earnestly end widely discussed than tbat of any other play since Daniel Roe bat, Rarely, says an eminent writer, "do we meet witb so charmingly drawn a character as tbat warm-hearted, affec tionate but still lively old gentleman Mr. Srabazou." The one sirj of his youth sita heavily npon him. and the | vacant corner of hit soul, tbe corner that be bo longe to till witb tha pretence ol a child of hit own, makes wondrously pit iful appeal to ut. Of conrte we know, for Mr. Grundy lets at all into tbe teoret from the tint that in ths "singing girl" (Rosomund) whose love haa twined it self round tbe susceptible beart of Ned Annetlsy, tbe dear old gentleman's adopted son, he is destined to find his own daughter. The following is the cast of tbe play: Mr. Brabazon Henry Mlllsr Mr. WaUin W. H. Cromptou Ned annetlejr William Faversaain Lord Petworta W. H.

Tbe title detcribet an American millionaire and hit lamily who are in London. They are teeking ad mission to the belt English society. A poliehed and unscrupulous gentleman learns about the American millionaire's ambitions, throws himself in tbe tatter's way and puts up a scheme to possess himself ot a large portion of tbe Ameri can Crceiue' wealth. In this he fails, bnt the millionaire'a daughter and tbe villain's nephew, who, by tbs way, is a decant, heroic young fsllow, have learned to love each other and tbeir union in matrimony is finally sffeoted in spite of the polished scoundrel's per fidy. Henry Miller personates tbe high bred villain and Viola Allen bis patient, suffering and deceived wife. William Favertham and Isabel Irving will be the young lovera.

No organiza tion tbat has visited tbe Pacific slope in years has scored such a success aa this one. Miss Georgia Waldron haa caused Georgia WaMron, much favorable comment, Tbe eastern press is unanimous in its praise of ber hiatrionio ability. During tbe engage ment of tbe company in Ban Francisco the oritios of tbat oity oredtted her as being one of the most attractive actresses tbat had visited the coast in months. She is a handsome dresser, and dis plays splendid taste ia the dressing of Grace Baybrook, tbe heiress, in Kid naped. Mr. Higgina, tbe author of Kidnaped, will portray the character of Louis Rimgold, the German dude, in which he bas made for himself a na tional reputation. Kidnaped will be presented with the original cast and scenery. Aside from being a grand scenic production, there are many novel effects, tbe abdnotion scene, where tbe bride is kidnaped, introduoing a hack and horses; a most realistic fire scene; the burning of tbe wine cellar; the police patrol; a perfect reproduction of Brooklyn bridge, etc, making in all a most realistic production.

Those Words Caused a Young Alan's ASTaat for "Ma ahi fit ." A call was received at the police sta tion Friday evening for the patrol wagon to proceed to Fifth and Regent streets at once, that some shooting had just oc curred. The wagon was sent out imme diately, and upon reaching tbe scene a young woman, without further cere mony, pointed out a young m n across the street and told the oliicers to arrest bim. The fellow was bustled into tbe wagon and taken to the station. He declared that be had been guilty of no offense and that he had not the slightest idea of what he had been arrested for; that the only thing he bad done was to speak— nowise disrespectfully, however —to the young woman wbo caused his arrest. He had taken a young lady to her noma in tbe vioiuity, he said, and was waiting at the gate for her to come out again to take a walk already agreed upon. Tbe other girl, be said, was walking back and forth watching him very closely and apparently trying to attract his atten tion. Wben she passed he remarked, ' I see you are alone."
