"THE FORTUNE HUNTER"
IS WHOLESOME COMEDY Abounds with Merriment, with Here and There a Touch of Pathos SHIRLEY OLYMPIUS Tom should not miSH seeing "The For tune Hunter" at the Mason opera house. There's a tonic In the play ■which no phyßlclan could possibly pre aorlbe and which no drug store could ever fill, although two of the acts take place In a drug store. This play of Wlnchell Smith's Is clean and whole eome. There are no problems to per plex one's mind. There are no vil lains to thlckon the plot. No adven turesses to bob up and make life mis erable for some sinner. This Is a de licious comedy, bubbling over with laughter and yet not farcical; natu ral, with no horseplay. Here and thoro Is a touch of pathos, the sort which makes up life as It Is lived every day, In every year. But the comedy which follows such pathos makes one's smiles dry up one's tears. I doubt If any per son, even the most cynical old mis anthrope In all the world, could see "The Fortune Hunter" and keep from smiling-. One leaves the theater feeling refreshed mentally and physically. In basic theme "The Fortune Hun ter" deals with the development of the individual. But the theme is not so .obtrusive at any time as to bother one. How the theme is worked out is more than the theme itself. To see a man grow from a ne'er-do-well, fortune hunting failure into an honorable and respected worker, and to see him get his just deserts, is about the sum total of the theme and lesson of the play. Fancy a man whoso life has been a "brilliant" failure suddenly making up his mind—or rather having it made up for him—to go to a small country town for the avowed purpose of getting a wife with a fortune, then going to the town, getting engaged to the daughter of the town's richest banker, and then finding that it is not the banker's daughter he loves but another. And then imagine that this eamo failure not only learns to like work but makes his work successful. Just as a final picture imagine this same failure be coming a great success, getting the girl he loves, along with the fortune he has sought, but which, through his efforts largely, has come to the girl. Such a series of pictures does not give any adequate idea of the wealth of comedy which sets off the pic tures, but it suffices. There are so many "human" elements in "The Fortune Hunter" that there Is no wonder it is a success. Not a singlo character, not a situation, not a speech in all the play is overdrawn. Winchell Smith knows well the people and their goings and comings in small towns. Consider the various characters be ginning with Nat Duncan, the failure, so exquisitely enacted by Fred Niblo. Duncan is one of a million "down-and outers" to be found in any big city. What he does is what every man in his class and position will do if given the opportunity. Mr. Niblo has illumined the role of Duncan with the creative power of an artist. How lovable is the character of Sam Graham, the village druggist whose in ventions have kept him so busy he for got to make money. Is there not orna ■uch in every village? We must thank Frank Bacon for Sam Graham and we must give our deepest thanks. Mr. Bacon has made this character one of those gentle souls who, by their gen tleness and kindliness, make the world seom brighter and better for their hav ing lived. There Is a Lockwood In every vil lage bank. As the song runs: "He «oca on Sunday to the church to pass around the contribution box. But on Monday he's aa cunnine and clever as a fox." Edward Saxon Is the Banker Lock wood of "The Fortune Hunter and he's a mighty good one, too. Francis Conlan plays Pete Willing, a matrimonial cynic, in such a delight ful manner that he simply forces one to laugh. Nothing could be more comical than his scene In the drug store in the third act, when he tries to persuade Nat to give up all thought of marriage. Rolund Barnett, the vil lage bank clerk, played by William Lyle and Tracey Tanner, the livery man's son, a real country bumpkin, played by Phil 815h0,., who looks and acts the role to perfection, are types one may see In any village. Robert Lowe enacts Henry Kellog of New York In bluff and hearty manner, and William Granger is a fine "drummer." There are Ju»t three women In the cast. Each in her way Is perfect. Alma Belwln shows exactly the vary ing phases of a country girl's life In playing Betty Graham. And when she Is the drudge. Miss Belwin is just that. And when she Is the educated young moman with all the rough cor ners worn off by a boarding school education, she shows what possibili ties there are In any country girl who remains unspoiled by her contact with the flashiness and frivolity of the city. Lento Fulwell Is excellent as Josle Lockwood. She gives a'true picture of the country girl who, though she ha 3 money and "social position," lacks the charm that should go wifh them. Regir.a Connolly makes an ideal Angle Tucker. • • • A review of "The Gay Lord Quex," which opened at the Belasco last night, will appear tomorrow. LOS ANGELES PRESENTS ENTERTAINING PROGRAM It's a good bill and you'll like it, at the Los Angeles theater this week. Not a single turn on the seven-act bill is without merit. All possess snap and ginger, and entertain in an es pecially pleasing manner. Manager Donnellan certainly is giving a person bis moneys worth this week. The youthful vigor displayed by Haydn, Borden and Haydn, combined with their versatility, entitles them to first place as the headllners on the bill. These clever entertainers sing, dance, play various Instruments, "cut up" and act foolish, which makes a big hit with their audience. The boys are boyish. Their stunts are clever. What more does the vauudevillo- goer ask? • "Captain Barry" is one '' of those pretty little Irish playlets which ever please. , A touch of humor, another of pathos and a bit of romance with here and there a lilting song. Is the basis of all real Irish plays. We find Just that in "Captain Barry." Daniel J. Sullivan, . who enacts the title role, has an excellent voice for singing Irish ballads and he was encored repeatedly yesterday. , ' : -■■ - Will Lacey, ; who seems to be as much at ease on a unicyule as most persons are in a rocking chair, can walk, run and even waltz on a single wheel. He certainly Is. ... master of the unlcycle, and has learned how. to ride "one ■■•' of . them ' pesky ■;- things" which are about as cranky as a buck- Ing • bronco on a : cold : morning. ," * < ■> :, " Some comedy i and , the cornet ) play- Ing of on* feminine member of the Music Notes Itcgina Vicarino, as Gllda In "Rlgo letto," was the attraction which drew a crowded house to the Auditorium last right. In opening their third week of Italian grand opera, the Bevanl sing ers made an excellent selection both of bill and cast—a fact appreciated by a large audience All the singers have won the fri»nd fiblp of their audiences and in the many beautiful duos, quartets and other concerted numbers as well as In solo« every member of the cast re ceived enthusiastic applause. The bill was reviewed last week and with the ex'vptlon of Miss Vlearlno in the so prano role, a part where her beautiful voice was heard to great advantage and Ettore Campana as Rigoletto thenj ■vere no changes. Campana is prov ing highly satisfactory in his work, and delighted his audience Jast night not only musically but by his dramat ic work as well Famous scenes and acts from th* popular operas of Guiseppe Verdi, Italy's great composer, will comprise the Bevani Opera company's offering at the Auditorium this evening. It is called a Verdi night, and the exten sive program will bring every number of the compasy, Including the princi pals In the three separate casts, before th* audience. The program will en tarn among Its numbers the second scene In act one of "II Trovat-re;" act one from "Traviata;" act threo from "Alda;" act four from "Rigo letto/ and a Verdi overture by Kran cini's orchestra. That this novel bill •will prove popular with the opera de votees Is attested by the large ad vance sale.

A A A AA »*. v"v../S. A^A./iAAA troupe make "A Marriage Broker," presented by Lancaster, Hayward and Lancaster a success. The skit is for laughing purposes only and succeeds therein. A rustic lad and a sprightly little lass —Powers and Wilson—have a song and dance turn which satisfies. The lass Is pretty and can, too, dance very well. The rustic lad has a foolish way, sings foolish songs and does eccentric dances. Much applause is the team's portion. Emma Don makes a handsome boy, but her voice Is not up to her appear ance. She might eliminate a portion of her constant walking, for it makes one nervous. Tom Gillen, "Flnnlgan Friend," tells some jokes which have not been heard recently, but he tells them in an In imitable way: His songs are laugh producers. JOHN P. WADE WINS HONOR OF WEEK'S ORPHEUM BILL La Tortajada, billed as the feature act of this week's Orpheum program, proved a distinct disappointment to yesterday afternoon's audience, judged by the scant applause she received. This beautiful Spanish woman has en meshed herself in a protean operetta, the story of which it is necessary to help along; its limping way with a crutch of very cheap moving pictures. The performer deserves sympathy, for she is a Jewel in a brass setting. There Is a pretty story told In "Marse Shelby's Chicken Dinner," as presented by John P. Wade and company. The incidents, pathetic and humorous, are well molded Into the sketch, which for twenty minutes or more kept the au dience in a gale of laughter occaslon allye dampened by a tear. John P. Wade In his delineation of the aged negro servitor of a gentleman of the south whose fortunes were reversed by the civil war, and who at the time of the action of the playlet Is In Wash ington endeavoring to secure the pay ment of a war claim, is quiet, dignltled and all we might imagine would go with the makeup of a house servant of the days of slavery. Paul Qulnn and Joe Mitchell are the men behind the battery of rapid flre shots concealed in a comedy entitled "The Land Agent." The team took a good amount of laughs. The Flying Martins present a bewil deringly exciting double trapeze turn, with a thrill In every movement of Its execution. Hal Stephans, presenting scenes from famous plays, and Meyers, Warren and Lyon In a whirlwind of song and dance, led the holdovers from last week, fol lowed by the six Abdallahs, the Amer ican tumblers, the Joseph Adelmann family, xylophonlsts and a good roll of motion pictures taken In the Canadian northwest. Black is said to be a favorite color of Madame Nazimova, who comes to Hamburger's Majestic theater next Monday for a week's engagement. It has been noted that the actress almost always dresses her characters in this shade. And yet, according to all re ports, Nazimova is not personally of a gloomy disposition. But on the stage a repertoire which includes "Little Eyolf," "A Doll's House" and "The Fairy Tale," demands somber tones. Nazimova will appear In all three of these plays during her engagement here next woe^ A sudden change was made yester day in the Burbank plans for next week, and Instead of "Texas" following "The Yankee Prince,'" now in its sec ond week, "The Grand Army Man" has been substituted. This play will be remembered as one of David War field's greatest successes in Los An geles. A. Byron Beasley will return from his two weeks idleness to play the Warfleld part. This is the sort of role in which he is most at home. PARIS WILL CONSTRUCT A $34,000,000 FLOOD CANAL PARIS, Nov. 14.—The Seine, which has flowed over some of the lower parts of the city and .threatened great damage, was stationary today. At a conference between Premier Briand and the special Inundation com mission it was decided to rush the work of deepening the rivers Surresnes and Bougival and the construction of the canal for diverting the waters in times of flood. This evening the river Seine rose slightly. M. Peuch, minister of public works, replying in the chamber of deputies to criticisms that the government had not adopted sufficient preventive flood measures, declared that the raising of the parapets in this city would be fol lowed by the digging of a canal from Aulnay to Eplnay at a cost of about J84.000.000, LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING.

SWITCH ENGINE JUMPS TRACKS AND KITS CAR Vehicle on Santa Fe Depot Line Smashed and Three Per sons Have Close Call Three oersons narrowly escaped in jury last night when a Santa Fe switch engine, making a flying switch, crashed into car No. 420 of the S;mta Fe depot line, at Fourth street and Santa Fe avenue, hurling the car ten feet and reducing it to a mass of broken wood, shattered glass and twisted Iron. The car was in charge of Motorman S. E. Hainey and Conductor J. W. Bingham. It was northbound, and one passenger was riding on the front open end of the car. The motorman stopped at the railroad crossing and the con • ductor ran ahead to see if the track was clear. He had Just given the sig nal to proceed when the accident oc curred. Motorman Rainey and the unidenti fied passenger leaped from the car al | most simultaneously with tliu crash. 1 They landed safely and were not hurt Conductor Bingham was about to board the car, but Jumpei back when he heard the noise of the engine. CLAIM FRANCHISE BARS SCHOOL FARE REDUCTION Railway Declines to Lower Rate to Students Over 18 Years Members of the board of education want to know If there Is anything In the street railway franchises which makes It Impos sible for the street railway companies to Brant reduced faros to pupils In the public schools up to the age of 2t years. At pres ent reduced rates are allowed only to pupils of 18 and under. This, the board believes, has led to mendacity on the part of older pupils and conseouently a communication was sent to the companies a short time ago asking that the aue limit be extended Last night an answer was received deny ing the request and explaining that the matter of school rates Is fixed by city fran chises jrranted to the companies. The let ter was signed by W. E. Dunn, attorney for the Huntingdon Interests It was referred to the city attorney, who will be asked to say whether the raising of the age limit could possibly be construed as endangering the roads' franchise rights.
