Comedienne as Patriofa O'Brien
in 'Chorus Lady' Edifies
Large Audience
Throe Monday nights has Rose Stahl
appeared us "The Chorus Lady" at the
Mason opoiu'houso, and three Monday
nights has she entertained as wall as
edified a largo and brilliant audience
with her : .laugy conversation, her com-,
edy, her characterization and her art.
Last night was no exception to other
Monday nights which have gone before
in the other years. There were some
In tho audience who had seen "Th<>
Chorus Lady" before. One of these
said In no uncertain tones. "I en-
Joy. it more last night than that
other time I saw it," (meaning, of
course, the play and tho players, for
that Is tho way spectator critics have
of expressing themselves.)
There*! something so real, so hu
m in, about "The Chorus Lady" that It
seems It will live tor many a long
year. Rose Stahl may lay by the
principal rolo and seek others but .the
treatargolng public will always re
member Miss Stahl as Patricia O Hrl?n
and will ever be grateful to her for
creating the character.
If those who condemn the theater
and chorus girls In particular could
see "The Chorus Lady," they prob
ably would change their minds very
quickly. In this play of James Forbes
Is given a clear picture of tho strug
gles, the life and the temptations of
the "merry-merry."
Miss Stahl's portrayal of Patricia
O'Urien Is beyond cavil. Hho has
played the rule so many times and
before so many different kinds Of au
diences, and has always scored such a
triumph, that it would seem, sho is
entitled to being called eminently ar-
Untie. Praise, however, seems need
less Just as criticism Is baseless. It is
V the second act, which once formed
- tho basis of a vaudeville sketch In
which Miss Stahl first appeared, that
■lie is at her best. A succession of
"Tuugh« is her reward for the first
scenes of that act. And then when
sho discovers that her Httlo sister,
also a chorus girl, Is about to fall Into
the clutches of a monster, there is
quite a different reward. Like all true
comediennes Miss Stahl carries pathos
very near the surface, for it la but
necessary to scratch a laugh to moke
a tear flow.
Surrounding Miss Stahl Is a company
of clever players. Alice Leigh Is per
fection as Mrs. O'Brien. Wilfred Lu
cas looks and acts Dan Mallory as It
deserves, Isabel Goodwin Is an inno
cent and perverse Nora, Robert Stowe
' Gill is the proper sort of juvenile
"heavy" as Dick Crawford. Claire Lane
makes good as Sylvia Simpson, while
all the other members of the cast seem
to fit their roles exactly.
Twenty-five minutes of satirical fun,
twenty minutes of mysterious mnßlc,
which is not magic at all but tricky
implication Of science, twenty-five or
more minutes of protean efforts and
twenty-odd minutes of acrobatic
comedy diversion are the new offerings
nt the Orphoum {his week. Of course
there are new motion pictures, three
sets of them, which 1» Just one too
many. And the acts run in worth as
they have been named.
The satirical fun is furnished by a
travesty on malefactors of groat wealth
while lnearcorated in a bastlle and is
entitled "High Life in Jail." In view
of the fact that recently certain pluto
crats of the San Francisco rlnjr of
alleged grafters and bribe-givers wined
and dined to their hearts 1 content while
serving a short term for Insulting an
eminent Jurist, the act Is made all the
more effective for Los Angeles citizens.
In San Francisco "High Life In Jail"
must have been a riot because it
struck homo with such telling force.
Uameses, who styles himself "the
Egyptian wonder," but who probably
was born in Heater street, is a mastor
at decoption. He apparently makes girls
appear in cabinets which were empty
but a moment before, causes a woman
to disappear In flames and then sud
denly appear again in the auditorium
of the theater, makes real flowers grow
under a handkerchief and boils two
eggs into two pigeons. Of course every
trick l« an illusion of some sort, but
that lloes not matter. The wonder of
it all Is, how does he do It? He mysti
fies and thereby entertains, which Is
tho solo purpose of his act.
Seven characters are assumed by
Zellah Covlngton and Hose Wilbur In
presenting their comedy entitled "Tho
Parsonage," a sketch with some pre
tentlons as to plot and scenery. Mr.
Oovlngton appears several times In
each of the characters he assumes, as
does Miss Wilbur. The changes are
made In record time and with careful
attention to detail. The act is one of
the best of its kind.
The four Ralnos have been seen here
before In their novel acrobatic act
entitled "In Africa." Comedy, skill
and muscle go to make up the diver
Holding over are the Jack Artois
duo, comedy bar gymuasta, who re
peat their success of last week, the
Bison City four, close harmony singers,
who score heavily, George Auger and
his company In "Jack the Giant Killer"
and Bert Kalmar and Jessie Brown,
who get by. # S. O.
"Our New Minister" opened a week's
engagement at thft Majestic last night.

An attractive new bill of vaudeville
opened at Pantages' new theater on
South Broadway yesterday afternoon
and served to please a large matinee
audience and two packed houses last
There are two big acts on the bill.
TClther might be the headllner, but th«
management prefers to name the Four
ltegala as the featured attraction,
while tho Six Musical Splllers, a sex
tet of versatile comedy instrumental
ists, runs a close second.
The former act has a setting In a
village blacksmith shop, and feats of
strength both with the arm and Jaw
muscles are shown.
The Splllers open with a saxophone
sextet, followed by a rattling march
on the xylophone. A ragtime specialty
on the wooden instruments also scored,
while their final effort, "Love Me and
the World la Mine," played in rag
time on cornets and trombones, won
thorn several encores.
Betty Blake burlesqued the English
music hall singer to good effect and
Fang several other English ballads In
a catctty manner.
Paris Green, in suit, hat, tie, shoos
and gloves of tba,t verdant color, dis
penses song and Jest In a hilarious
manner that is catching. His jokes
are new and his songs make a hit.
Cameron and Gaylord have a sketch
In two scenes which contains the chief
comedy element of the bill. They are

supposed to ho a pair of blackface
performers. The first scene shows
them on tho stage and the next In
the dressing room, where they quarrel
and make It up amid distinctly hu
morous situations. The l'antagescope,
with some new motion pictures, com
pletes the well filled bill.
Jules Mondel provides much fun in
the role of Mr. Mazuma In a play
of the same name at tho Olympic this
week. There are several other of the
Alphln and Fargo cast In the show
this week, but their function seema
only to feed Mendel and show off his :
fun making: ability.
Mendel portrays a rich German,
with a wlfa addicted to bargain hunt- i
Ing. This irritates him greatly, and i
in order to stop it he disguises as a j
detective and gets a position In his
wife's favorite shopping haunt. -Many
funny situations arise, in which tho
clerks, floorwalker and store proprie
tor help Mendel with his comedy hon- ;
ors. Monte Carter has returned to his !
Hebrew makeup and dialect and car
ries away the part of the owner of the
store in his characteristic able man
ner. Dave Morris features eccentric
comedy as the floorwalker, while Tra
cy McDermott, Leonard Brisbane, Gale ;
Henry, Frances Paon, Hazel Douglas, |
Vera Ransdale and Rosabelle Cohan j
all have suitable parts and share in
the fun making. The ten singing and
dancing numbers include practically
the entire cast and chorus this week.

"A Hot Old Time" Is at the Princess
this week, and Al Franks and his play
ers are doing their best to create fun,
laughter and amusement. The chorus
has some new dance steps worth while,
while its ensemble singing is above
the ordinary. ■;; '"■'■
Fred Ardath received a cordial greet
ingl as he appeared yesterday after
noon for the first time after the vaca
tion spent at Catalina. He and Al i
Franks play the roles of old sports
who have been out with an actress.
The actress appears at one of their
homes a day later, and the irate wife's
arrival on the scene starts the comedy.
Earl Hall also features as a young
rascal, and his solo, "Phoebe Jane," is
a ragtime hit. Bonnie Browning takes
the part of the Incensed wife and has
a musical specialty. Mabelle La Vere
' Jumped In at the last moment and
played the part of the actress. The
octet of musical numbers was much
enjoyed by the audience.

Al Lawrence is the stellar attrac
tion of the new Sullivan and Considlne

Lewis S. Stone and his associates of
the Belasco company last night en
tered on the second and last week's
performance of George M. Cohan's
play, "Fifty Miles from Boston," with
an audience of tho capacity order
enthusiastically applauding tho good
work of Mr. Stone, Miss Farrington
and the others of the cast. The songs
of Mr. Ruggles, Miss Kelly, Miss Mont
gomery, Miss Farrineton, Mr. Giblyn,
Mr. Field and Miss Tannehill came in
for a generous share of praise. To
night's performance of "Fifty Miles
from Boston" will be a benefit under
tho auspice! of the local mail car
riers. Tho advance sale of seats Is of
such ample proportions as to Insure a
crowded house.
The first rehearsal of "Zlra," the play
selected for Eleanor Gordon's first ap
pearance as loading lady of tho Be
lasco company, was held yesterday, and
it was quickly apparent to all who
were privileged to witness the work of
tho Belasco players that Miss Gordon
is going to make a success in tho role
of Hester Trent, while Lewis S. Stone,
Adele Farrington, Frank Camp and the
others of the Belasco company are cast
in especially well fitting roles.

300 Citizens in Mass Meeting
Favor Assessment District
A mass meeting of citizens interested
in the Improvement of Agricultural
park was held in the chapel of the
University of Southern California last
night. Three hundred persons were
present. The question of condemning
the thlrteen-acre strip paralleling tho
southern end of the park for park pur
poses or the site of, a new normal
school, together with the prevention of
the repeal of an ordinance against the
building- of street car barns in that
section of the city, were discussed.
A resolution approving condemna
tion proceedings was presented by C. E.
Cort and unanimously passed for
presentation to the city council.
R. B. Andrews, president of the
Forty-ninth and Figueroa Streets Im
provement association, delivered a gen
oral address on the need of condemning
the strip of land south of the park.
W. H. O. O'Connell, chairman of the
committee on valuation, gave figures in
regard to the value of the property to
be condemned.
"The assessment district takes In
eleven square miles," he said, "contain
ing about 43,000 45-foot lots valued at
$78,000, or $6000 an acre. The average
assessment In this case will be $1.88 a
lot, whereas the opposition, or street
railway companies, have been stating
that the assessment would run from
$50 to $450 a lot. They don't want con
demnation proceedings here. They
want that land for their car barns,
and there is an ordinance In force at
this moment that prevents them from
marring these beautiful homes by
building car barns in this district."
There will be no rate war this year
between the Pacific Coast steamship
company and the Independent line,
according to local officials of the two
"Our company simply cut the rates
on second class passage to San Fran
cisco to create more business," said
H. B. Brlttan, city passenger and
ticket agent for the Pacific Coast com
pany, yesterday. "All through tho sum
mer our ships have been sailing
crowded to capacity in the first class
section with very few people in the
second class cabins. Such a state of
affairs is not desirable, so we reduced
tho rate in order to equalize matters."
C. J- Lehman, general manager of
tho Independent line, assigned the same
reason for his company's reduction. He
also said:
"We believe that it is for the best in
terests of Los Angeles that this lower
rate should be made between here and
San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.
Thore is no daubt about It, that low
ratss create a great deal of travel and
tho $5.35 rate will bring a great many
people here who otherwise would not
have come. The rate between Port
land and Ran Francisco has been less
than five dollars for some time and the
second class business on our lines be
tween these two points greatly out
numbers our second class travel be
tween Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Our new rate Is made in an effort to
create a greater second class trade In
this locality."

of the Brahms qualntette, which Mr.
Wylle and F. E. Blanchard recently
