Burbank Theater—Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Sunday, "The Lost
Paradise;'' Thursday, Friday, Saturday, "Mrs. Partington."
The past week will be memorable In
the annals of the Los Angeles theater
on account of the enormous sale for the
the engagement of the Bostonians,
which extended over four nights and a
matinee. The prices were raised, but ln
spite of this fact the demand for seats
at each performance was larger than
the management could Bupply. While
this 1b a highly satisfactory result, both
for the Bostonlanß and for the manager :
of the theater, it will not be accepted as
a vindication of the musical taste of the
public until something Is done to redeem
its neglect of the fine performances given
here recently by the Italian Opera com
pany, and other sins of omission. The cult
of the Bostonians was really more ln the
nature of a society fad than anything
else. The principal members of the com
pany are so much liked on account of
their personal qualities that they have
friends wherever they go, and to Show
them attention is considered quite the
proper thing. They are wise enough,
too, to travel under a collective title
which Is of far-reaching Importance and
in itself attracts consideration. No mat
ter how the membership of the company
may change, the name remains the same
and their prestige Is undisturbed. Their
principal soprano, Alice Neitson, leaves
the organization next season, as I un
derstand, and intends t o star ln a new
opera that is being written for her by
the composer of "The Serenade," Victor
Herbert, the libretto being contributed
by Harry B. Smith. She will be joined
in this venture by Eugene Cowles, who
is one of the three most popular singers
ln the Boatonians' company.

Richard Mansfield gave a very inter
esting address recently to the graduate
club of the University of Chicago. In
the course of his talk he said:
"Even after one has studied, or.thlnks
he has studied, long at the'art, it is not
easy to obtain a position In the profes
eion of the -actor. When I say actor, I
flm not sure that you know what I mean.
Everything Is mixed up In this country
in regard to the definition of an actor—
some include under this name the one
who dances in a vaudeville or who
amuses an audience throughout an
evening with gags and Jokes, sometimes
Of vulgar type.
"If you Intend to study the real art of
the actor I should recommend that the
first thing is the cultivation of the voice.
I trust that you will not think that I
preach what I think I have attained. I
have an idea, but do not say that I have
reached It. The man or woman who
strives to reach that chandelier will get
up higher than the one who tries only to
touch the edge of this table. Behold in
me a horrible example.
"We hear all kinds of voices on the
Stage—and I have heard all kinds on the
platform, also. If all those on the boards
would practice cultivation of the voice,
there would certainly be a great differ
ence, and it would be an Improvement
certainly If those off the stage had this
cultivation. You can see that on the
stage—the men especially—those that
take the character parts, need voice cul
ture. For instance, if I were to assume a
great role of Shakespeare, I would re
quire a great volume of voice. If I were
to take the part of Richard 111, in which
the man is developed from youth to a
maturity of sin, I would need to have
the same strength and passion of voice
in the last act as In the first. Do you
known that when Edmund Kean and
others of the great men of the earlier
stage would get down Into the last act
and cry, 'A horse, a horse! my kingdom
for a horse!* they were always very
hoarse Indeed. Now, through voice cul
ture, we have learned to be as fresh and
volceful at the end of a play as at the
"An actor should be able to produce
any quality of voice, for there are few
limits to what may be required in this
line in a variety of character parts. An
actor should be able to sing a stave, also.
No actor who does not know music can
be a good one. An actor should study
painting that he may see himself as oth
ers see him. He should study color that
he may make no mistakes in his costum
ing and his make-up. He must remem
ber that his duty is to please first, to
please second, and to please all the time.
He must have the sympathetic quality
above all things. The actor should study
deportment. In these days we are ac
customed to seeing our so-called actors
making their movements from their el
bows and their knees, when they should
make them from their shoulders and
their hips. It has become so that when
they see a man moving freely from these
points, they say he struts. One should
Study all his life the proper way of han
lllng himself.
"There have been criticisms of the
norallty of the stage," he said, "and
perhaps some of the criticism comes
Irom the fact of our private lives be-i
Ing laid out so thoroughly by the papers.
I can say ln regard to this criticism
that there Is no more and no less im
morality on the stage than In society.
The actor Is too busy, too full of the Im
portant duties of his art, to be Immoral.
Every one docs not know what actors
have to contend with In the way of
personal criticism. It would be good if
newspapers would limit their mention
of players to their public performances.
jlt is not ncccessary that the public
' should be told of our private lives. An
actor's business before the world is to
act on the stage. There is nothing In
the fact that I put on a mustard plaster
on Thursday, or that I wore a hat to
breakfast in the cafe of the annex. When
I was playing In New York I was sur
prised to find a paper with the headline,
'Mansfield Breakfasts ln His Hat.' The
story told of how I had gone to the cafe
for breakfast and kept my hat on, which
I did because of a draft. These criti
cisms are guilty of llfing persons to
places before the world which they do
not deserve to occupy. It is very dis
tressing to one to be hounded all the
time by those who know your personal

Harry Corson Clarke has had more
Joy than falls to the lot of ordinary
mortals within a short week. In the
first place, It was his privilege to take
unto himself a wife, and the descrip
tion of that ceremony taxed the powers
of the San Francisco society reporters.
In the next place, on Friday night, he
opened the Columbia theater, which was
entirely renovated after the late fire, and
produced the comedy "What Happened
to Jones" to a crowded house, and, as a
private telegram says, with the great
est success. Mr. Clarke is to be con
gratulated on the double event. After
he has finished his season at the Colum
bia he will probably move in this direc
tion, and give play-goers here an op
portunity to enjoy what Is said to be a
first-rate farce-comedy.
[ "The news comes from Paris that Sarah
Bernhardt Is In a bad way ln eonse
' quenee of some internal injuries, sup
posed to have been contracted by the
necessity for making a full-length fall
■ in the play called "Lea Mauvals Ber
i gei-8," in which she appeared forty con
( serutive nights. Her physicians have
cided that a surgical operation Is
necessary, and it Is said to be one at
tended with serious risk. The actress
was about to start on a tour, but of
course had to cancel her engagements.
Another comic opera of local origin
is likely soon to see the light. It is
the work of Fred W. Blanchard, and is
spoken of in the highest terms by those
who have had the privilege of listening
to selections from it.

The city authorities have decided to
see that the ordinance against sidewalk
signs and similar perilous obstructions
Is tluly enforced. To make matters pleas
ant, the theater managers have been se
lected as the first objects of this cru
sade. Mr. Perry, proprietor of the Los
Angeles theater, has had constructed a
wooden awning over the sidewalk for
the purpose of protecting the patrons
of the theater on alighting at the en
trance. This handsome awning Is orna
mented with a pair of large lamps, which
alone cost him $500, and the whole ar
rangement was put up by special per
mission of the authorities, as I am In
formed. Now he is notified to remove
the awning, lamps and bulletin boards.
In other large cities theaters and news
papers are exempted from the operation
of sign ordinances, by reason of their
being to a certain extent public institu
tions, and surely the rule Is a good one
to be imitated here.

The souvenir program of the Los An
geles theater, circulated during the en
gagement of the Bostonians, just con
cluded, Is the handsomest thing of the
kind ever gotten out here. It consists
of forty-four pages, printed on fine
paper, illustrated with half-tone en
gravings, and was issued from the
Baumgardt press. The compilation was
made by L. Behymer, treasurer of the
theater, and is highly creditable to his
Industry and perseverance. The literary
portion of the program Includes a num
ber of contributions by local writers
connected with the press.
"Katherlne MacNeill has shown un
usual executive ability In directing her
Columbia Comic Opera company, nowln
Its third successful season. Miss Mac-
Neill and her company have won enthu
siastic recognition wherever they have
played, and her management is highly
praised." So says the Dramatic Mirror,
and its words of commendation are
heartily indorsed here from an observa- :
tion extending over several weeks, dur
ing which the Columbia Opera company
played in this city.

Dion Romandy, the violinist and lead- ,
er of the Orpheum orchestra, is a ver- ]
satile genius and often indulges In mus- ,
ical composition. He tries his short j
pieces on the audience at the Orpheum ,
and always makes a hit. His latest work ,
is of a more important character, being (
a three-act comic opera, entitled, "The i
Midshipman," which he has just com
pleted and has dedicated'to Sir Arthur i
Sullivan. The libretto is by L. B. Pern- t
berton, well known in local literary oir- t
cles. Mr. Romandy tells me that he has
an offer from the Bostonians for his
work, but has not yet decided whether he
will accept it.

"There's many'a slip 'twixt the cup
and the lip," as the old proverb says. A
London dispatch snys: The Daily Mail,
which, on January 16th, anounced the
engagement of Laurence Irving, son of
Sir Henry Irving, to Miss Ethel Barry
more, the actress, now says the engage
ment has been canceled. There has been
no sort of quarrel between Irving and
Miss Barrymore, but they have recog
nized that the engagement was entered
into in a romantically hasty manner,
and are mutually convinced that their
happiness will be best consulted by re
garding it as premature.

THE BURBANK.—(Advance An
nouncement.) Tonight is the last even

tained the many patrons of this house
this week.

written by Henry C. do Mille, and
founded upon the results of the strike of
1876, a problem play presenting the
rights of the working man and depict

united capital and selfishness. It is a
play that teaches a life lesson, a play
that throbs with human interest; a play
that teaches what capital owes to labor
—not charity, but the love for humanity.
There is a comedy vein running
throughout, furnished by two charac
ters, Billy Hopkins, a spark from the
factory furnace, played by W. J. Kile
ford, and Cinders, a waif from the fac
tory, played-by Jessie Norton. They both
appear to an excellent advantage. Hilly,
In his droll way, ln love with Cinders,

ment.) A greater number of new acts
than usual will be introduced into the
program at this theater next week. All
of the new comers are of the highest or
der of talent and only the best of last
week's bill is retained.
One of the star features of the bill is
a native of Los Angeles, returning after
several years of successful achievement
in all the larger eastern cities. She is
Miss Jessie Millar, and ac
complished pianist and cornet soloist,
and named by the eastern critics "The
Female Levy." For the past three years
she has been the special feature of the
Barnum & Hailey shows, and has also
played with the Reeves and Brooks
bands and Thomas' orchestra. The most
severe musical critics have spoken of
her work ln the highest terms. She is

La Petite Lund, the Infant prodigy,

not alone as a phenomenal child artist,
but as an entertainer.
Miss Dolline Cole, the graceful and ac
complished female baritone, is another
new comer. Her work is of the descrip
tive song order and includes coon melo
dies. The De Fillippis, termed "The In
ternational Dancers," will introduce

quite well known from their appearance
here some two years ago.

vance Announcement.) "The Girl From
Paris" is the next attraction at this the
ater. A play brimfull of fun, comic hits
that go with a swing and sparkle that
give a keen evening's enjoyment. A
play with seven strong character com
edy roles, no two of which are in the
; least bit similar, and every one played
by a distinctly clever actor, presents an
uncommonly attractive combination.
"The Girl From Paris" has special
: charms for the gods as well as the mor
tals who laugh and grow- fat in the
dress circle and orchestra chairs. There
is lots of music and lots of fun and
laughter.there are clever comedians and
clever girls who kick or sing as high or
as low as you like and who are pretty,
shapely and well dressed. The engage
ment opens for one week, commencing
Monday, February 21st.
The Southern Pacific at Work on the
Coast Gap
The news of the placing of a lot of men,
as many as can well be employed, on the
coast line of the Southern Pacific, on clos
ing the "gap," comes soon after the re
ceipt of a letter by Edward Ivison of
Santa Barbara from President C. P.
Huntington, in reply to one sent to him
by Mr. Ivison protesting against the
long-continued delay in completing the
line, in spite of the promises made w hen
rights of way were secured.
Mr. Huntington said, in this last let
ter: "I know that the people of Santa
Barbara would be very much benefited
by the completion of the coast road, and
we will endeavor to complete the work
between Surf and Ellwood as soon as we
well can." This may mean much or it
may mean nothing at all, a peculiarity
of Mr. Huntington's letters.
Next week the Southern Pacific com
pany will keep four work trains em
ployed at the gravel pit at Palm Springs.
The intention is to gravel the entire road
between this city and El Paso.

For Money Orders Goes Into Effect
Here Tomorrow
Postmaster Mathews has at last suc
ceeded In prevailing upon the Postof
flce Department to adopt the ' Clear
ing House" system of dealing with the
money-order business. Recipients ol
money orders often find that they are
obliged to waste much time in standing
in line at the Postofflce wainting foi
their turn at the clerk's window. This
plan obviates all of this nuisance and
renders the collection of a money ordei
of no more difficulty than that of an
ordinary check.
Under this arrangement money orders
drawn upon this postofflce are received
on deposit for collection by the several
banks the same as ordinary drafts or
checks, and at once credited to the ac
count of the depositor, who Is thus
spared the necessity of presenting them
at the postofflce.
The Postofflce Department, desirous
of accomodating the business houses,
which are the payees of some millions
of these orders, has recently modified
certain of its regulations, for the con
venience of banks and the business pub
lic.and under the method above
ed the prompt payment of orders will
be greatly facilitated.
Money orders deposited in bank for
this purpose need not be indorsed to the
bank, but simply receipted on the face
as when presented by the owner at the
The Los Angeles National Bank has
been delegated to receive all such money
orders presented to it at the clearing
house meetings by other banks, and has
consented, with the sanction of the
Clearing House Association, to act as
the representative of the Postofflce De
partment In clearing all such money
orders presented for payment.
That banks may not be necessarily
inconvlenced, the postofflce will accept
all orders presented which are drawn
upon this office, whether the corres
ponding- advice is or is not on file at the
time the order is presented.
Under this arrangement no order wlll
be returned because of a technical ir
regularity. Only such orders will be re
turned as are necessarily rejected be
cause drawn upon another office or be
cause of some serious omission or grave
defect of irregularity appearing there
in affecting their validity as vouchers.
Every money order presented through
the clearing house should be receipted
on its face by the payee or endorsee,
and need not be indorsed by the bank,
but must be stamped on the back by the
bank presenting same.
This system will be inaugurated Feb
ruary 14..
