Earnest Sincerity of William Stoermer
as the Christus and Music
Are Features of the
The earnest sincerity of William
Stocrmer In his portrayal of tho char
acter of tho Chrlstus was the most
impressive feature of the presentation
of the second part of the three-night
production of the Passion Play last
night at the Temple auditorium.
There was something so soulful in thu
■work of Mr. Btoermar that ho con
vinced his audience that criticism of
any nature. If it were to bo directed
toward the Passion Play, should not
fall on him. In the scene of the sor
nw of the Christus in tho garden on
the Mount of Olives, in act six, the
study by Mr. Stoermer was superb in
its Intensity and restraint.
The entire performance last night,
with the exception of a premature
dropping of the curtain In scene two
of the tenth act, was noteworthy for
smoothness, which was so lacking in
Monday evening* performance. The
tableaux hindered rather than hi
the movement of the plaj and served
to lengthen the time of presentation,
although the management omitted sev
eral. The scenic effects were •
lent and the lighting was almost per
fect. With Mr. Btoermer'i admirable
acting in mind, however, one
wish that there was no need of any
sort of artificiality in the spectacle,
a -etting as simple .-is that of the Ben
(jrept players In their presentation of
Shakespeare, or, better still, a back
ground of trees In the heart Of nature.
would lend a wonderful atmospheric
charm to the etory.
The musical numbers last evening
were enjoyable. A number of v 1
solos were rend.Ted and the choruaei
much appreciated. Of the soloists
there are Mrs. Fred Dora, Mrs. J. W.
Klrkpatrlek, Miss Myrtle Got)
Miss Alice Rufsel. Mrs. William P.lllK
ham De Pero, I. g. Oppenhelmer, Miss
Florence Patrick, Miss Rosa Domasser,
Spencer Robinson, Fablus Blanchard
and Harry Girard, Not nil of these
sang last night, but nil of them are
to be heard at pome time during the
three-night performan c.
There was an excess of mob laughter
and mob howling In the second
The mob was prominent in nearly
every scene, and it seemed Impossible
for It to perform In any other than B
tiresomely monotonous manner. It
ebbed nnd flowed In its demonstration
with the regularity of the sea, and
before the close of the piny bordered
on the ludicrous in the ping-song of
Its clamor.
The first presentation of the Passion
Play will close tonight and n second
will follow on Thursday, Friday and
Place Prayer Rugs In Hallway and In
Strident Tones Offer Their Sup.
plications to Mohammed
If you live at the Angelus hotel or
close In Its vicinity, and If, at B o'clock
every evening you hear strange weird
cries proceeding down that hostelry's
corridors, do not think you are go
ing dippy and B.?nd for Dr. Bayless,
the house physician, in a hurry. It
isn't that.
But If you were a devout follower
of Mohammed, ami your religion re
quired you to get out your prayer
rug at 6 o'clock every clay, face the
east, call "Allah 11 Allah." In strident
tones, and then Bay your prayers, prob
ably even the select corridors of a
modern hotel wouldn't hinder you,
Anyhow, that's what it Is all about.
Two Mohammedan boys, the assis
tants of little Emma Francis in her
tumbling stunt at the orpheum, are
temporarily domlcled at the Angelus,
and even the excluslveneis of that
caravuns;irie cannot prevent their de
votions at the appointed hour, fur they
consider the worth of their Immortal
souls of more consequence than the
comfort of the gu^stx about th<'in.
And so It 13 thiit every afternoon at
6, these two youngster! whose names
sire Mohamed 8!e Mohamed and As-
Mhier Ben Badj, gather up their
sacred ruas, which came with th< m

The Roundup' Is Pictu e
of Stirring Arizona Life
Cowboys, cowboys, cowboys!
yells, yeiis: Bhootlng, shooting, Fhoot
That I.* what "The Round Up," Which
was presented at the Mason opera
house last night, is. Certainly there la
a story with love and hatred, denun
ciation and renunciation In it, but the
yells, the cowboys and the shots are
more or less the play. In fact, there is
so much shoot. at times that a wee
bit of cotton in each ear might help
some, if you do not care to be com
pelled to visit an aurist.
There's more noise to the second in
the third act of "The Round Up" than ,
ever broke loose anywhere on earth
since the Civil War. Rut it's the kind
of noise everybody likes to hear, lor
It's the music of firearms, and as every
shot rings out upon the echoing prairie
air a dozen redskins bite the dust.
Nick Carter, please write!
There were cowboys to the right of
us, cowboys to the left of us, cowboys
in front of us, cowboys In back of us,
and cowboys nil over us—almost—at
the Mason last night On the stage
were the cowboys of the company,
paid for playing. Above and back of
us were the cowboys—and a few cow
girls -of the Out West Riding club,
who paid to play or root, as you will.
So you see there was more or less at
mosphere all over the theater,
"The Round Up" Is a melodramatic
picture of life as it is not lived on the
plains of Arizona. If ever life was as
strenuous as "The Round Up" would
have us believe, it would make Roose
velt Bit up and take more than notice.
But that is beside the question.
The play makes the nerve ■ tingle, the
blood rush faster through the veins,
the heart beat in sympathy and the
lips curl In scorn. As that Is the chief
object of melodrama, and as "The
Roundup" fulfills its mission, it must
be voted an entire success. It n ally Is
too is "'d to miss, if amusement of a
clean and clever sort is sired,
For several things all who saw "The
Roundup" last night are thankful. One
Is aclyn Arbuckle"a "Slim" Hoover,
the Arizona sheriff. Another is the
bucking; broncho riding contest. And
another Is the scenery. Stagecraft was
tried tn Its Utmost when Joseph Brooks,
Herbert Ore ham and Lawrence Mar
ston began their work of producing
Edmund Day's play. A prairie home
with all its cactus naturalness is one
of the evidences. Then a rocky defile,
wbere n tight between cowboys am sol
diem on the. one side and Cochlea
Indian braves on the other takes place,
Is other. From the standpoint of
scenery "The Roundup" is all and a
little bit more than could be desired.
It is a wonderful piece of scenic archi
tecture and persona] daring. To see an
Indian hang limp and less over a
precipice for fifteen minutes Is a
Mr. Arbuckle's "Slim" Hoover—who,
by the way, is anything but slim—ls
one of those delightfully ingenuous
characterizations which make all the
little boys want to go west and the
big boys say "Why didn't I?" Mr.
Arbuckle is perfect in his characteriza
tion, but one wished, when he adopted
a clever ruse In getting the drop on
Ruck McKee, the had man, that he had
drawn thing other than a cheap,
nlcklo-plated revolver from out his
breast waistcoat pocket. "Slim" i
Hoover looms large In every scene. He
has a wonderful way with him. It's a
pity he did not get the girl of his
heart's choice in the end. Mr, Arbuckle
puts more comedy than pathos Into the j
character, which Is a good thing, for
it pave i one's handkerchief.
Albert Phillips as Jack Payson, the
man who lied and fell uncomfortable
about it to the extent of going Into
the desert and finding the man whom
lie had deceived and cheated, was
natural and likable, with all his faults
of character. However, Jr. Phillips
has an unfortunate habit of explosion
in delivering his lines at times.
There was something lacking In
Joseph Lot lans portrayal of Dick Lane,
the mining engineer. Just vs hat, it in
hard to say. It is not a very thankful
role at best. As played by Mr. Lothian
it seemed weaker than It should have
Paula i Hoy as Polly Hope is satisfac
tory. She has allowed her face to tan
while her hands are, lily white. Just
a slight error of make.up. Grace Ben-
ham gave a good idea of Echo Allen.
At times Miss Benham was a bit too
tragic. Others In the cast are accept
able in their respective parts.

Probst, the whistler and bird imitat
or, Is the best feature of this week's
vaudeville bill at the Los Angeles the
ater. He is best because he is differ
ent. Although the Probst turn is not
new, it is novel In the larger sense.
It is unique because Probst probably
is the only person who can give such
wonderful Imitations of the calls and
songs of birds. He is a whole aviary
In himself. He lias been seen in Los
Angeles before, but because of the
cleverness of his act be Is always wel
come, and a distinct addition to any
vaudeville program. Mr. Probst's imi
tations are all good, but the b«st are
of the quail, the whip-poor-will and the
meadowlark. As he gives the calls
pictures of the various birds imitated
are shown on a screen. a
Six pretty misses in short pink frocks
and riding bicycles con pose the Bessie
Valdare troupe. It is marvelous what
difficult stunts the girls are able to
perform on such a small stage. The
Valdare act Is one of those novelties
of the variety theater which always
please and which cause one to ask,
"How long did It take them to learn
to do all those tricks?"
In "Politics and Petticoats" August
Neville and his company have a clever
satire and a good sketch. It is worth
seeing because it is better than the
average of vaudeville playlets.
William Coleman is by far one of the
best monologulsts Sullivan and Consl
dine have sent this way In a blue
moon. Some of his lingo is rather
frayed at the edges from long usage,
but most of it is nearly down to date.
If he would forget to sing a nothing
nets rhyme at the end of his act he
would be a topllner, There is one un
fortunate thing about Mr. Coleman's
delivery. It is so near like chained
lightning that the points to his jokes
do not prick easily and quickly the
average "ten-lwent-thlrt" mind. Mr.
Coleman deserves much praise, for he
is undeniably clever.
Gardner and Goliler, black-face com
edians, make a great deal of noise, and
that's about all. Winnifred Stewart,
baritone, la excellent.

Music Notes
Florence Bosard Lawrence
Myrtle Klvyn made her initial ap
pearance in a piano recital before a
Los Angeles audience last, night. dirt
ed not only with musical talent of a
high degree but with unusual personal
beauty as well, this young woman
made a distinctly pleasing Impression
upon those persons assembled to listen.
Of goodly height and with lithe,
muscular figure, Miss Klvyn commands
the entire keyboard with a strength
exceptional in a woman player. . She
has great technical skill, ■ brilliant,
sure grasp of the keys and dazzling
execution. The program offered last
night was admirably adapted to dis
play these characteristics, and al
lowed the young pianist ample oppor
tunity for those tonal seintilations and
bravura passages In which she ex
a complete mastery of the mechan
ical side of piano playing li ■ neces
nary prelude to thorough artistic de
delopment. Miss Klvyn seems to have
this in abundance, and so far as her
program allowed last night she showed
considerable intellectual quality in her
work as well. The numbers selected
for rendition did not, however, make
serious interpretative demands. They
were none the less pleasing to the au
dience for that reason, however, and
Miss Elvyn received many flowers and
a great deal of most enthusiastic ap
plause. She was generous with en
