. The Central Theater scored a scenic
and spectacular triumph last night in
its gorgeous production of the power
ful drama of the Arctic seas, "Under
the Polar Star." The scenic artists
who wrought the magnificent effects on
the canvas merit special praise, as do
also the electricians and stage me
chanics for their noteworthy part in
the mounting of the piece. Beautiful Eu
genie Thais Lawton, as the heroine who
goes to the Arctic disguised as a cabin
boy, contributed, with exceptional clev
erness, to the success of the perform
ance, and Georsie Woodthorpe and
Myrtle Vane did well in minor parts.
"Under the Polar Star" is without
doubt- the greatest dramatic spectacle
ever witnessed at the Central Theater
and should draw crowded houses dur
ing its run. ' •

NAPA, Nov. 16.— J. S. Strauss, while
on his way to Napa Sunday evening,
was held up by two highwaymen on the
railroad track a short distance below
town. He was relieved of his purse,
containing $2 80, and a bundle of cloth
ing. He came to Napa and the rob
bers went down the track toward.Val
Sheriff Dunlap and deputies imme
diately started in pursuit. Late Sun
day night Constable Secord saw the
bundle of clothing that had been taken
from Strauss in a saloon. One of the
robbers had left it and returned early
this morning to get it. He became sus
picious and hurriedly left the saloon.
Late this afternoon Sheriff Dunlap and
Under Sheriff Daly started out after
the suspects on the Foss Valley grade
and located one of the robbers at his
father's house, near Atlas Peak. His
name is Wiliam Wende and he admits
having left the bundle at the saloon.

Alfred Rhodes, a private who was
sentenced to life imprisonment on Al
catraz Island but who received a par
don from President Roosevelt, claims
to know the details regarding the
forged pardons which ffave four pris
oners their liberty a few weeks ago.
Rhodes was sentenced to life impris
onment for killing a Filipino a little
over a year ago, but, owing to exten
uating circumstances, he secured a par
don. The story he tells Is to the effect
that one Robinson, a fellow convict,
who acted as printer on the island,
planned the escape of the four and
printed the forgeries that procured
their release. His story throughout is
wild and thoroughly improbable.
Rhodes is living at a hotel on Third
street, but is registered under an as
sumed name.

Circulates Improbable Story of
Prisoners' Escape.
Mrs. Edith Osgood suspects that her
husband knows too much about the
paternity of the club baby, while her
sister, Florry Larkins, entertains a like
suspicion as to her betrothed. Of
course both men are innocent, but a
prior flirtaton between Arthur Cham
berlain and Emma Green and Emma's
demand for the return of her letters
cause a misunderstanding that is at
the bottom of all the trouble. It is only
at the close of the last act that the
mother of the Interesting baby Is
found, but its paternity is somewhere
in the graveyard.
Marie Howe, as Mrs. Law, the mis
chief-maker, achieved a signal success.
In makeup and action she was funny
without trying to be so. and the house
was convulsed with laughter whenever
she appeared on the, stage. Another
splendid bit of character acting is the
part of Jeremiah Larkins, assumed by
George Osbourne. Jeremiah is in dead
earnest all the time and Osbourne
made him so, but his very earnestness
Is irresistibly funny. John B. Maher's
Bertie Law, the henpecked one, is a
clever personation. Walter Belasco's
Major Plunkett is Irish enough In
brogue, but o'er the makeup let the
veil be gently dropped.
The Edith Osgood of Adele Block is
a happy conception and not at all
forced or overdone. It is simply good
acting. • Miss Starr's Florry Larkins
Is a neat bit of soubrette work that Is
thoroughly enjoyed, whjle Grace Good
all's Emma Green Is comical, even In
the gravest moments.
There Is cachlnnation enough in "The
Club's Baby" with which clever farce
the week's bill opened at the Alcazar
last night, to satisfy the most laughter
loving crank. The advent into the club
of an 18 -month -old baby, and
the Jealousy of members' wives,
fanned by the insinuations of
a woman's rights woman, Mrs.
Law, are the grounds for the fun
niest situations. The farce requires a
large cast, but that is because of the
clubroom scene In the second act,
where all the gentlemen are pressed
into service.
ASTORIA. Or., Nov. 16.— The ex
tremely heavy weather that has pre
vailed in the Lower Columbia River
district for the past two weeks will re
sult in early suspension of logging ope
rations, according to the statements
made by loggers doing business near
this city. The rains have so interfered
with the work that the output of logs
has been materially curtailed and it is»
probable that half of the camps will
cease operations before December 1.
In Southwestern Washington, where
the output of lumber has been enor
mous during the year, many of the
mills are reducing their output. Work
ing forces are being reduced, only the
most valuable men being retained.
Many of the mills of Washington and
Oregon have suspended night work,
and the loggers, anxious to hold up the
price of their product, have simultane
ously arranged to limit their output.
The opinion prevails among well-in
formed men that the curtailed produc
tion will have the effect of increasing
the price of lumber or at least of hold
ing up prices.

KARACHIA, British India, Nov. 16.
—The Viceroy, Lord Curzon, and party,
escorted by four battleships, sailed to
day on a tour of the Persian Gulf. The
expedition commanded by Colonel
Youngrhusband, which Is being pre
pared ia India to support the British
mission to Thibet, starts in a few days.
It has been ordered to occupy the
Chumbi Valley, the key to Thibet, and
to advance on Gyangtz, an Important

ject of the mission is to discuss with
the Thibetan authorities their non-ob
servance of treaties and consequent In

WOODLAND, Nov. 15.— During the
closing week of October L. A. Weiss,
charged with the murder ' of Charles
Hodge, at Knights Landing, on Aug
ust 23, was convicted of manslaughter
and Judge Gaddls sentenced him to a
term of five years in San Quentin.
Weiss' lawyers gave notice of a mo:
tion for a new trial and also of an ap
peal In the event that a new trial is
denied. Weiss is in ill health and his
counsel have about decided to abandon
efforts for a new trial and an appe.il
and allow him to begin the service of
his term at once.

Fear Exists That the Mills of

William Courtenay, as the lover,
Trenwith, Is virile and intelligent, but
not supremely loverlike. Even for him
one's sympathies are left unwrung.
Much the best in the support is J.
Hartley Manners as Croker Harring
ton, a Cayle Drummle sort of figure,
most adequately realized by Mr. Man
ners. The Maldonado Is crudely han
dled by Mr. Henry Jewett, who not In
frequently suggests the Central in his
methods of villainy. The rest fill in,
very, pleasantly in Ethel Winthrop's
case, and the piece is brilliantly gown
ed, staged and stage managed.
The play goes smoothly enough and
throughout there is the gleam and glis
ten of. the only Pinero's dialogue. One
cannot miss "Iris" if but for a glimpse
of what we have here so far happily
Possibly if Miss Virginia Harned, who
appears In the difficult leading role, at
tempted to realize more thoroughly the
suggested surpassing charm of Mrs.
Bellamy— that enslaves all who come
within her influence, men, women and
children — the play's ' effect would be
stronger. But Miss Harned makes no
bid for sympathy In her interpretation.
She spares nothing of the shallowness,
the meanness, the Intense falsity, the
terrible. littleness ot the character. She
brings to the role a fascinating stage
presence, ample physical beauty, but
these are denied the additional appeal
of feminine softness, a tenderness that
might go with weakness, that would
explain the play's insistence on her
many allurements. But it is a thor
oughly intelligent conception, if not
temperamentally satisfying, and Miss
Harned would be worth seeing in any
thing. Her gowns are the proverbial
dreams, and worn in the way dreams
should be .worn.
Croker Harrington, the third man,
whose only wish is to serve Iris— though
one finds this quite likable person be
ginning to despise her here — comes in
to tell her of Treuwith's return from
the ranch, successful. And Iris, with
Maldonado In the house, aska Harring
ton to take a letter to Trenwith ap
pointing an interview. Trenwith comes,
she confesses, and the sordid tragedy
is at an end.
Immediately then the Jew, who of all
people In the play alone seems to un
derstand the Inherent depravity of the
character of the woman he loves, leaves
his check book with her. And still wet
from her lover's — Trenwith, this time —
tears — Mrs. Bellamy writes out one of
the Maldonado checks. True, it Is to
help a young woman who has been
robbed by her own defaulting trustee,
but the horror, the mean, miserable,
little horror of the thing, is the first
actual note one gets of this tragedy of
. We find her afterward installed in
a handsome flat, deserted by all of her
friends except Maldonado and a third
lover — the only thoroughly good fellow
In the play. Maldonado is paying for
the flat and Iris Is as usual weeping
about it. Almost, this tainted lady is
as damp of habit a% Miss Anglin as
Claire in Henry Millar's "Aftermath."
He still, decently, wishes to marry her,
but she will not.
"Morality," some one has said, "is all
a matter of latitude." Immorality
would seem also to be all a matter of
latitude. The particular depravity of
Ids, a woman with the lust of luxury
bitten Into the very core of her, who is
bought — and will not stay bought, who
wrings her Jeweled fingers through five
acts that she cannot have her cake and
eat it, becomes wholesomely unintelli
gible in the woolly West, her sordid
tragedy not seldom fancied. It is the
fruit of a civilisation o'er-ripe, ripe to
rottenness. Its decadence is of the old
world, not of the new. Here, In short,
are not the "suitable surroundings." In
a country where within living memory
the women marched with their men
folk across the plains, the Iris kind of
woman, her problem, her tragedy, can
not yet make any serious appeal, for
the original of the portrait is lacking.
It is tragedy in another key, so to
speak, and we haven't the ear for its
particular horror.
Iris Bellamy we find first In a luxuri
ous home. She is a widow. She Is 26.
Her late lamented has, however, dis
counted the latter hopeful facts by cut
ting her off without the proverbial
shilling if she marries again.
The second scene — after a dinner
party, discovers Mrs. .Bellamy making
an appointment with her poor lover,
Laurence Trenwith, for an hour after
her guests' departure. She has mean-'
while granted her millionaire lover,
Maldonado, the privilege of an inter
view half an hour before. Maldonado
proposes to her. She accepts tentative
ly. Trenwith comes In then, and it is
discovered that Iris has given to him
such love as she has. But she will not
marry a poor man, and has put Mal
donado between herself and the temp
tation. But Maldonado does not "stay
put" — in current parlance, and, under
Trenwith's Influence, she writes to the
millionaire, declining to see him the
following morning, when her Xull con
sent to marry him was to be given.
And here begins the deadly battle of
Iris' shifting emotions. Now here, now
there, one never knows afterward Just
where she will be found, but always
sure it will be on a lower and yet low
er plane. She goes to Switzerland, per
mitting Trenwith to accompany her
there, who. It seems, is due in a "ter
rible American ranch" to make his for
tune. Six weeks pass and, her lover's
means almost gone, she offers him
money to keep him by har side. Tren
with, a decent sort of fellow, refuses.
Then, of course, Iris loses her fortune,
through a defaulting trustee, and Mal
donado appears again on the scene.
Trenwith, equally of course, goes to the
terrible American ranch, with Iris'
promise to marry him on his return,
Maldonado doing the bless-you-my
children sort of thing over their fare
The problem play met a prob
lem audience, and the audience had it.
The Plnero problem was lavishly con
ceded—and given up. The Pinero audi- f
ence, the usual thoughtful first-night
folk that gather at the Columbia, must
also be given up. Mere bewilderment,
perhaps, best expresses the collective
viewpoint, mingled with a rather irrev
erent regard for such of Mr. Pinero's
intentions as made themselves mani
fest to the attendants' intelligence.
People seemed to be asking themselves,
'•What is the problem?" "Is it this?"
"Or is it that?" "Or possibly it is th*

audience was large and appreciative;
the floral offerings to the popular lead
er were beautiful and numerous, and a
number of pretty gifts, including a sil
ver tea set and a water set from some
of the members of the company, served
to show that Steindorff holds a warm
corner in the hearts of many admirers.
Steindorff through it all bore his hon
ors with becoming meekness, and the
plaudits which were showered on him
did not detract one whit from his mas
terly direction of an augmented orches
tra and the various vocal numbers
culled from some of the successes of
the present season. All that was want
ing to make the affair entirely perfect
was a speech from Steindorff, but the
acknowledgments which he bowed were
sufficient evidence that he felt grateful
for it all.
Quite a pleasing surprise was the ap
pearance on the stage of an orchestra
of sixty-five pieces, which played the
overture from ."Der Frelschutz," under
Stelndorff's leadership, in fine style,
and followed with "The Dance of the
Hours," from "La Gloconda," one of
the cleverest musclal bits that it can
be any one's pleasure to hear.

The publisher of The Call, in anticipating the tendency of the times , |
in giving more time to recreation, hunting and fishing, has acquired for |
their exclusive use a series of art pictures which will serve as reminders |
during the busy months of those delightful days passed in the field. 1
"At "Work," the title of the next Sunday Call's offering, is a reproduc- I
tion from an oil painting by J. M. Tracy, an artist whose paintings of I
dogs have never been surpassed. 1
Mr. Tracy had for the subject of this study the celebrated Llewellyn §1
setter, "RODEEIGO," who became famous in this country by his clean ||
sweep of bench and field events. . ||
This picture, while it appeals strongly to those who know every point i
in a dog, is perhaps just as interesting to the many who love the faithful |
In handling, color and action, "At Work" is a most life-like study; a I
picture that, when framed, could with difficulty be distinguished from 1
the original oil painting. I
To overlook this is to miss one of the best of the Sportsmen's Series. 1
I Are You Afraid !
