There is nothing in the acting or the stage busi ness which is lacking save just that— the want of a little real, shooting be hind ; the . stockade instead of beating a stretched skin out in the files."

VICTORIA, B. C., Dec. 14.—Mount ford Wilson of a firm of attorneys of San Francisco was severely cross-ex amined in the Hopper-Dunsmuir will case to-day by E. V. Bodwell, counsel for the plaintiff. The witness in reply to one question as to Mrs. Dunsmuir's shortage of money, said this was due to her having to pay Mrs. Hopper's debts. :-. ;'* ; ,Bodwell attacked Wilson on the ground that he represented both James Dunsmuir and the late . Mrs. Alexander Dunsmuir in the making of agreements whereby James Dunsmuir agreed to give Mrs. Dunsmuir $25,000 a year and a half interest in the San Francisco property after a certain debt had been paid, which it was esti mated would take two years. Bod well claimed Wilson did riot conserve Mrs. Dunsmuir's interest by not hav ing the arrangement In regard to the payment of this debt inserted in the agreement.' Jr? : Wilson admitted having told Mrs. Dunsmuir that Dunsmuir, being Pre mier of British Columbia, would be hard to beat in a British Columbia court, but disclaimed any unprofes sional action. . He first heard of the will In February after Dunsmuir's fu neral, and Mrs. Dunsmuir had told him, taking into account her- good name, her husband's memory, etc., she did not intend to contest the will.' VICTORIA, B. C. Dec. 14.— Lord Dundonald, chief of the Canadian forces, returned from Port Simpson and vicinity on the Government steamer Quadra to-day, where he went to lo»k over the situation with respect to the report that the United States intended to fortify Sitkan and Kannaghai isl ands. Dundor.aJd visited both islands and elso Pearso and 'Wales islands, which were both aw/yded to Canada. He de clined to talk of his visit, but from others in the carty it is learned that he regards Sitkan and Kannigha isl ands as unable to dominate Port Simp etm if fortified. Vessels pass close to these islands entering Port Simpson, but Wales If land is so much higher that a fort there would make any forti fications on the United States' islands untenable. ¦v " .¦" ; -if .; s LONDON,' Dec. 14.— The bc-dy of Sir Herbert Spencer was cremated at Hampstead to-day.

The scenes are laid in the northern part of Texas and the piece was beautifully mounted. The plot deals with the* heroic efforts of an American scout to break up a band of outlaws on the frontier of Indian Ter ritory, and Incidentally of the scout's* conquest of the heart of a charming Texas heiress, who is coveted by a pol ished villain leagued with the bandits. The play is replete with action of the most stirring kind and curtain calls were demanded after every sensational climax. Herschel Mayall made a hand some, dashing hero, and Eugenie Thais Lawton a charming heroine. The hew Tivoli Opera-house, corner of Eddy and Mason streets, will be opened Wednesday evening, December 23, with the magnificent holiday spec tacle "Ixion, or The Wheelman," a mythological- conglomeration, culled and congregated by Ferris Hartman. There will be twenty principals in the cast and more than 150 people will ap pear on the stage. There will be five distinct ballets, all beautifully cos tumed, and the transformation scene entitled "Excelsior, or The Triumph of Light" promises to be an artistic reve lation.

Besides Miss Adele Block, whose part gives "full play to all her talent, Miss Juliet Crosby, after her six months of retirement, received a hearty share of the audience's approbation. The Chinese Six Companies issued a circular last evening exonerating both the tongs now at war from complicity in the assassination of Gee Gum in the Washington-street Theater late Satur day night. The shooting evolves a tale -almost unprecedented. Those who plot ted the crime relied on daring 'for ac complishment. The murder was spec tacular even for Chinatown. While a play was in progress and while 500 pairs of eyes were fastened on the ' :¦. stage, a highbinder stepped out and emptied his revolver in the direction of Gee Gum. The victim, who was a musician and who occu pied a seat immediately behind the actors, pitched forward, wounded unto death. Every one present saw the deed and its recklessness amazed them. The murderer jumped toward a back door, through which he had come, and disappearedjn the network of passages that. lead to another street. It seemed strange that none of the witnesses rhould know the assassin. All who watched this bit of realism interjected into .the heathen drama positively asserted that its perpetrator was a stranger and that the victim was a member of no tong. * * The Six Companies investigated and found a story of deliberate revenge. A Chinese lover, /whose affections had been alienated by the musician, 1 plot ted that the object of his vengeance should find ho escape and took him at a time when he would least be pre pared for an attack. It appears that Gee Gum won a woman whose residence is on Sacramento street. Her forsaken lover threatened his life and empha sized his threats so strongly that the musician took warning and went about at all times guarded by friends. Then his enemy resorted to strategy and im ported a highbinder to do the work. Where the man came from no one knows. He had never been seen in Chinatown before nor has he appeared since. When he passed up on the stage, bent, on murder, he was not known and there was no one to- furnish a clew as to his identity to the police when tftey arrived on the scene.' Fresh as a rose, blithe as a lark, win some Lulu Glaser last night brought another town under the witchery *of her Dolly Varden.. City after city has capitulated, and last night as much of San Francisco as could be got into the Columbia followed suit. It is ten years since Miss Glaser was here to obsess the town with 'If you love me, darling, tell me with your eyes,' and inci dentally to wile away the center' of the : stage from Francis Wilson, who brought her. Miss Glaser is 'ten years younger since then. In. ten years. more the philanthroplcally inclined will probably be sending the Gerry society after her manager. In the meantime she .persuades to the righteousness of another reminiscent Edwards opera, carries it off in fine triumph. If Miss Glaser's face was not her for tune her laugh would be, dot enough. How shall one describe its luscious gur gle? It Is like a. lark's song after rain, like the small boy's laugh when he isn't found out.' One needs only its captivating ripple and Mr. Edwards' or any other opera may go hang— as Nor dica sings. But Miss Glaser has much more to offer. She has a warm, girly voice that she uses to excellent advan tage, and the last man in the .gallery! can hear every word she says and sings. Then this captivating person can act with a freshness, vivacity, spontaneity that makes her DolIy'Varden one of the cleverest comedy portraits recently seen here. Add to this a charming face j and figure and a bewitching repertoire of gowns, and you have Miss Lulu Glaser as Dolly Varden. The part was born for her. Possibly not by Mr. Stange's fault— or has he \ the reminiscent habit of Mr. Edwards? — the librettist's indebtedness to Wych- | erley in his "The Country Girl" is not j acknowledged. But the plot is the ! same, Dolly, a lovely country lass un der the guardianship of a stern old party who intends _to . marry her and her "pot of money," comes up to Lon don. Here, though she walks a&road caged in a bottomless sedan chair, she falls in love with a handsome young London gallant. The story is concerned with the plotting of the lovers to out wit the guardian. As in the Wycherley comedy, a second pair of lovers is in troduced, and to give Miss Glaser op portunity to show her angel ones she has to wear boy's clothes, just as Peggy does. From the moment ' the fascinating ankles that her lover apostrophises, in lieu of the 1 eyebro,\vs . he^,,has .not yet seen, appear the stage, is the dainty comedienne's. They come tripping un der the sedan chair that her guardian ingeniously \ uses to hide his country rose. Then Miss Glaser appears to be gin a dellghtfultrio in which the guar dian, the lover— who loves her for" her ankles alone— and Dolly take part. She is country girlhood itself, her awkward ness divine, her giggle an inspiration. One can believe she has just dropped j from an apple tree and that she will soon tumble up another. ; She has a ridiculous, girlish little sniff that is adorable, a hoyden walk thai is richly droll. In all phases of the part she is found sufficient, whether defying or coaxing her guardian, making naive love to Dick or offering to marry any one so that "she can go to the play." She. hasn't much in the way of songs, which is a pity. "The Lay of the Jay" is the only one in fact. It is good enough. The. trio in which she first appears, "Twirling, Whirlinar," is one of her best numbers. But go to see her. i Words fall me. The opera. Mr. Wycherley to be thanked, has a clear plot and attract | ive story that falls in excellently with i the purposes of opera. Some of the j I musical setting: is distinctly melodious; I If reminiscent— better where it is rem- I inlscent, though one could wish that "The Holy City" had been pas§ed by as a source of inspiration. Then there are also good people for the opera's ' [interpretation besides Miss Glaser. • There is a sprightly and musical cho rus, "including j a smart octet of men that are f up to' "Flbrodora" sextet standards, and the costumes are of the _•'"'¦ The hero, Richard Belleville, is done by Harry Girard, lean and cQurtly and effective, but one has to take his tenor for granted. .John Dunsmuire is good as Dolly's guardian and has a.prom ising basso that only balks. at a deep, deep C. He sings very pleasantly. Harold Blake has a pretty tenor and acts well. Lillian Walbridge, the only woman of importance in the cast be sides Miss Glaser, is unimportant and has a trill that 'should be extracted. Her song, "The Navy," is the best on | the programme, and Miss Walbridge 1 has a voice that was here prettily used. There aren't many quotable lines. in Varden," but. this sticks: "The man who marries for money earns it." BLANCHE PARTINGTON. "GirllLe^t Behind Me" Well Presented at -This House.

The label tells the whole story. There is a knack in making it. The only secret about it is the secret of its. success. This year, when cod liver oil is very scarce and hi<*|i, all kinds of cheap, inferior oils are used to take its place, and. all sorts of things pre- sented as substitutes. Think of petroleum being taken as a substitute for cod liver oil ! — too absurd.
