The best that can be said of the bill
at the Orpheum this week Is that It Is
a little better than fall It may oe that
Orpheum goers have been spoiled by ex
tra tine performances In the past which
would account for the fact that they were
chary of their applause except with the
Big City Quartette which made an In
stantaneous and unqualified hit As usual
on Sunday nights the house was packed
every seat being sold and the s R 0
sign out
With voices that blended Into one har
monious unit of sound the Big City
Quartette salig Its way into the hearts
of the audience Fred G Rover first
tenor James Emerson baritone Charles
Bates second tenor and Gus Reed bas
so compo the quartette All the songs
rendered were of the popular variety
some being of the semicomic kind Aft
er responding to repeated encores the
quartette was compelled to beg off on
the score that the supply of songs had
run out
The Carn1en troupe made up of two
women two men and a boy presented
an original tight and slack wire per
formance Several Interesting feats of
balancIng were given earning a merited
round of applause
Ferrell Brothers billed as the smart
est of corned cyclists gave an exhibition
of clever riding Several tricks new to
Orpheum goers were Introduced
The Initial appearance In Salt Lake of
Lea Irosotls said to be late premiere
dancers of the Royal Opera Munich din
not meet with the favor that might be
expected That their dancing was good
there Is no doubt but notwithstanding
this the act 15 one that does not seem
to satisfy the public taste
In a burlesque on legitimate legerdemain
Henry Clive succeeded In getting a few
laughs by his droll witticisms The act
was fall
A Baby Grand was the title of a
little playlet presented by Walter Lewis
and company The secret marriage of
the daughter of Tom Hallady to the son
of his enemy and the homecoming of the
young married couple furnish material for
several amusing situations
Miss Edna Aug gave fall characteriza
tions of the chorus girl German servant
girl and the amateur opera singer Dur
Ing thc course of the German servant
girl monologue several original and de
cidedly humorous jokes were given
The Spoilers a play that has been
a great success throughout the north
west opened at the Colonial last night
to a capacity house It Is a dramatiza
tion of Rex Beachs novel which owes
Its popularity to the true picture It pre
sents of life in the Alaska mining camps
In 1900 Beach was In Nome at the time
of the great conspiracy against the min
ers and his novel is founded on fact The
play Is a stirring melodrama that Is of
vivid Interest particularly to westerners
who are more or less familiar with the
scenes recorded In the book Life In the
far north away from civilization takes
on crude characteristics and the ele
mental in human nature Is the ruling
trait Before the coming of the law
men knew no other force than might and
a spirit of fall play The book and the
play show conditions as they actually
existed and have caught the spirit of the
time and place
The play Is In five acts For three acts
It Is thrilling The last two are tawdry
and leave the audience with wrong im
pressions Where the book gives opportunity
portunit for strong dramatic action the
play Is almost a farce If It Is impossi
I ble to present the Intense scene between
Helen Chester and Struve adequately It
would be better to leave It out particu
larly as it Is not necessary to the devel
opment of the story It does however
give opportunity to the best actor in the
present company The npleasant char
acter of Wilton Struve the lawyer as
played by Frank lcQuarrle Is generally
well done He Is a dissolute drunken
loafer the tool of Inenamara just clev
er enough to keep out of the hands of the
law himself while ruining the conspir
ators Mr IcQuarrles Interpretation of
the role gives It more importance than is
found In the book and Is In welcome con
trast to the other less well presented
The company playing The Spoilers Is
only fall It does not meet the require
ments of the really stirring melodrama
and many opportunities for clever work
are not taken advantage of One scene
the fight at the end of the third act Is
however exceptionally good Mac
namara and Glenlster engage In a hand
tohand struggle that Is a real bit of ac
tion which the audience applauded In the
most hearty manner
There are many stirring and realistic
features In this presentation of The
Spoilers which make It well worth see
Ing It will run the entire week at the
Colonial with Wednesday and Saturday
Walter lcCJ1l1ough new leading man
In the Grand stock company was favor
ably received by a capacity house at the
Grand theatre last night in the role of
Stephen Ghtmt In Henry Millers wonder
ful western drama The Great Divide
There were a few ragged edges of course
as could be expected on the first night
and In handling such a playas The
Great Divide but the ragged edges will
be trimmed and indications are that the
company will run along smoothly
Miss Blanche Douglas as Ruth Jordan
endeared herself still more to the Grand
patrons She is charming as ever and
In the dramatic scenes rose to a height
seldom before reached by her There are
scenes of dramatic Intensity without num
ber during the threeact story The touch
of the finished actress was seen In each
Miss Douglas received a flattering wel
come when she first appeared J1pon the
stage and was compelled to respond sev
eral times after each act to curtain calls
Irene Outtrlm at Pohly Jordan was a
charming little creature and pushed Miss
Douglas hard for first honors Frederick
Allen has a small part in the person of
Dr Newbun but handles well the lim
Ited opportunity presented
The story of The Great Divide is es
sentially western and hard In some of
its phases Philip Jordan Arllng Alcine
and lls sister Ruth Jordan Miss Doug
las are fighting alone in the desert for
the saving of the remnant of their for
tune Philip goes to a dance one night
and leaycs Ruth alan While she Is
there three rough men driven mad and
reckless with drink come to the house
One of them Is Stephen Ghent lcCul
lough The men decide to shake dice for
the possession of Ruth She picks Ste

In whom the park of manhood has not
gone out and appeals to him to save her
from a life with the other two She agrees
to go with him and live with him If he
but takes her
Stephen bus the greaser oft with a
string of gold nuggets and then kills the
other In a gun fight for the girl Then
he carries her way with him And right
there starts the uplift of the man the
change from the brute They live to
gether after a semblance of a marriage
but finally the girls relatives find her
and take her back to her home In the
far east Stephen gives her the right to
go if she wills and she leaves Ghent

wealth He followed his wife east and
then at last she discovers that she Is

Mr Young who was the original John

performances there to an average of over
1000 a performancea phenomenal rec
ord for a onenight stand and accord
InglY he was booked by John Cort to

Ill play here Thanksgiving day he
said If I have to do It In the public
square and accordingly set out on a
hunt for the biggest building In town
It turned out to be an old abandoned
skating rink but it Is big enough for a
clraus and so Mr Burlock is to meet
a contractor tomorrow and will obtain
bids for turning It Into a theatre for one
night only If It can be done for 2000
or less work will begin tomorrow and
be rushed forward night and day
Its pretty expensive to build a the

I will have to build a fly gallery a stage

The list of the missing was compiled
today in the office of the mining com 1
pany It reached 385 Including the dead
whose charred bodies were taken from
burning cages Saturday afternoon It was
declared probable that this list might be
Increased One hundred and seventy men
I who entered the mine Saturday morning
have been accounted for
Many Americans Entombed
Among the missing are ninny Americans
who have lived In the mining section of
Illinois for years Though the majority
of those who may never be found alive
are foreignborn yet all had their homes
here or In the surrounding towns lnd
villages Grief over their probable fate
has cast a pall over the community
Officials early in the day swore In a
force of deputies to handle the crowJ
Scores of trains from Streator Mendota
Ladd Spring aIley La Salle Ottawa
and other town were run
When experts had drilled a hole through
the concrete at the top of the second eln
all shaft and all preparations had been
made to lower Mr Vlllams and his vol
unteer explorers the scene at the mine
was dramatic
Along the railroad tracks and In fields
on the east and west of the shaft was
a wall of humanity Stout ropes and po
licemen kept back the throng
H was a silent but not undemon
strative assemblage Occasionally a wo
mans wall broke the stillness Four men
appeared oxygen bags on their shoulders
and steel and glasscovered hoods over
their heads
They were besides Mr Williams of Ur
bana his assistant James H Webb of
the University of Illinois James Hand
of Spring Valley and Henry Smith of
Peru Later lIne Inspector James Tay
lor of Peoria donned the regalia
Many Ready to Help
A score of men were ready to assist
them A system of signals had been pre
pared Two men were stationed at the
top of the shaft Williams and Smith
prepared to descend Inspector Taylor
drilled them In their signals
The men who were to undertake the ex
ploration nodded assent Engineer Cow
ley at the hoist that controlled the Iron
bucket In which Williams and Smith
were standing announced his readlnCs
and the first men to enter the St Paul
mine since the explosion were slowly low
ered When sixty feet down the signal to raise
came and was at once obeyed The hel
metcovered explorers soon reappeared
The bucket Is not hung right said
Williams It strikes and bounds In the
shaft It must be rebalanced
When repairs had been made an hour
later and with Hand Webb and Taylor
at the wheel the explorers descended I
For 300 feet the bucket went down Then
came the signal for ascent When the
men reappeared Williams said
We found an obstruction at YO feet
Ve might have got blt but If we sig
naled to come up we would undoubtedly
strike It coming up Ve wanted to no
tify the men above of the condition so
they would understand
Make Third Descent
Williams and Smith this time accom
panied by Inspector TaYlor descended
for the third time They were gone ten
Ve got to the base of the second vein
said Inspector Taylor and though we
could see little we found no excessive
temperatures It was apparent that the
fire had not penetrated deeply Into the
mine and we could not see signs of
lames If the temperature throughout
the second vein is no more excessive than
there in the deeper and further recesss
of the mine It Is probable that there may
be oxygen to keep the men alive We I
saw no trace of men either dead or alive 1
Tomorrow I think we can go farther wit
safety I
Late tonight after a conference of mino
Ing Inspectors company officials and ex
perts it was decided to open the main I
shaft in the morning and to send ex
plorers into the mine In the regular cage I
