EMPRESS PRODUCES RATTLING GOOD ACTS According to a big matinee audi ence yesterday, each of the eight new acts at the Empress this week are of the headline variety. Happy Hearn's novelty "bike" riders led off with IS minutes of amusement, but they scored no more applause than did Mable Florence and Hereford Lov <u in their playlet. "Tho Tamer." j Then came the International Oper- I atic company of 20 good singers, who scored a large slice of approval by reason of some classy numbers and a beauty chorus, which served to dis play the newest ln X-ray gowns and fancy hosiery, to say nothing of fa cial charms. Dingle and Corcoran came on the stage and put over a* bit of comedy peculiarly their own, and they got a "house full" of credit. Dingle is also a flexible dancer. Maur ice Urierre and Grace King held at- I tention with a medley of songs, <lances and conversational tidbits cleverly done The audience treated them With a hearty ovation. Miss King has a really good soprano voice. The Nagyfys, billed as the "Human Salamanders," play with fire and eat small pieces of white hot iron. Maybe they don't really eat the iron, but it looks as though they did, so the re sult is the same. George F. Hall is a character comedian of parts, who recites Kipling's "Gunga Din" fairly well. Moving pictures of the Barbary coast at midnight and a Chinese vio linist conclude the all star bill. COMEDY FEATURES IN NEW PANTAGES BILL Tiie four Marx brothers and a big cast of 20 persons furnish a couple of rollicking headline acts at Pantages this week, both of which are filled with genuine comedy. The first of the production is a hodge podge of non w nm4 ' ailed "Fun in Hi-Skool," a typ ical kid" act of the breezy variety. •.:..!.. r of good s»njj« and dancing stunts interspersed the skit. "Mr. Greene's Reception" is a continuation of the school act in which the com pany tenders its old teacher a jollifi cation after a parting of 10 years. Tbe Marx brothers are excellent musi cians and. aside from their comedy, they registered big hits with solos on harp ;ind piano. The Harris brothers in a lightning clog dancing number almost stopped the show yesterday afternoon. The audience couldn't get enough of the Harris foursome. Al Abbott, the "prince of «ong"; the four Wiltsea, dancing skaters; Greve and Green in "a page from* minstrelsy"; Eddie Howard, an acrobat with com edy twists and motion pictures com plete a noteworthy program "THE ENCHANTRESS" ENJOYS BIG SUCCESS The popularity of gorgeous Kitty (Jot don at the Cort theater remains undiminished. The beautiful prima donna has attracted more attention among theater goers of this city than almost any other star who has been here in many seasons. A good sized audience wus present at last night's performance, which marked the be ginning of the second and final week of her engagement. "The Enchant- ress" contains some delightful music by Victor Herbert and lt gives Miss Cordon many opportunities to display her persona! charms and singing abil- Itj An extra performance lias been added to the engagement, that of Sun day Bdght, October 19 The engage ment of . William Faversham in his great production of 'Julius Caesar" begins at the Cort next Monday night, October 20.

TONIGHT t The final dress rehearsal of "Alda" | was held last night at the Valencia theater, and the principals, chorus, ; ballet and supernumeraries were pro. nounced fit to sustain the promise* made by the Western Metropolitan Opera company, which lieglns a six weeks 'engagement at the Tivolt to night. The orchestra is about the best heard here in connection with any opera company of less conse quence than that secured by "f3 a seat opera." Managers Ettore Petrizi and Eu gene d'Avlgneau have organized the entire company right here in San Francisco. Only the principals have been imported, and these come from the principal opera houses of Milan. Madrid. Rome, Naples and Buenos Aires. The opening night promises to be of importance sbclally and epochal The management presents during the first week "Alda," "La Tosca" and "Carmen." making choice of these works because they are admirably suited to reveal the vocal, instru mental and scenic resources of an operatic organization. They explore the entire range of operatic possi bilities and will disclose the starship of the principals, the excellence of the chorus, the grace of the ballet forces and the effectiveness of the orchestra, tlie whole under the magnetic direc tion of Nlna-Belluccl of the Monte Carlo opera.

CHARLOTTE WALKER DRAWS AT COLUMBIA "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine." with Charlotte Walker as June, en tered its second and final week at the Columbia theater last night, when a capacity Imuae greeted the beauti ful mountain drama. Miss Walker has made many friends during her San Franelsco engagement, and. backed by her splendid company, she bos achieved a notable success in her presentation of Eugene Walter's most delightful work of dramatization. The play is romantic throughout, and there are several dramatic scenes of Intense interest. * "The Count of Luxembourg." Klaw and Erlanger's big musical romance, begins a two weeks' engagement at the Columbia next Monday night with the original production Intact. LILLIE LANGTRY AT GRAUMAN'S IMPERIAL A splendid filmatized production of 'His Neighbor's Wife." with the cele brated English actress. Lillie Lang try in tho leading role, was presented al drauman's Imperial yesterday aft ernoon, and it scored an immediate success. Miss Langtry Is given an ! unusual opportunity for the display j of he r dramatic talent. The general detail given the production is sur passing and combined with Miss Langtry'* art and the almost flaw less acting of her supporting com pany, this pictorial drama Is worth going a long way to see. There are many strong situations and intense climaxes throughout the four acts. "His Neighbor's Wffe" will be shown at the Imperial during the week. ! Kddy St., Near Market. Phone Sutter 4'.'i»o.

Bargain Matinee Wednesdays, 25c LULU GLASER SCORES BIG HIT +*» Stars at Orpheum in 'First Love' Operetta Clever Vaudeville Actress Has Pleasing Gurgle Lulu Glaser is a famous comedienne j and she's made Broadway hold its < sides these many seasons with her 1 ready wit, her sprightly manner and j her winsome personality. When you j are told that Miss Olaser ig to appear j in anything you can bank on it that ! you'll see something worth while. Her J name stands for comedy. So her little I operetta. First Love.'' went with a | dash at the Orpehum yesterday after- « noon, and she lived up to, or a little j beyond her reputation. "First Love" hasn't much of a plot. A vehicle needn't have muth plot, however, when Miss Glaser appears as the lead ing genius. Neither has "First Love" much music. But it gives the come dienne a splendid opportunity to dis play her art and her fetching ways. In other words, she is the "whole show," unless one may except the handsome captain, her partner in the I playlet. His clear tenor voice and j soldierly bearing, combined with a j stunning uniform, won him many I friends, especially among the damsels. Miss Glaser, as Elaine Hampton. : breezes upon the stage and the audi- 1 ence capitulates immediately- She has j such aq Infectious chuckle and such! a free and easy ptyle of saying things,' it's no wonder she brings laughs. She! i plays the part of a waitress Just to] see if the man she la engaged to, who j is the handsome captain, really loves j her. Of course he is ignorant of her j identity. Also, it seems natural that he should fall in love with her and propose an elopenient. The "wait ress" gets insulted, but not until she has sung a pretty little ditty entitled "And Then You Kiss, Kiss, Kiss," j which brought down the house. Then j she leaves the despairing captain and gees home to change her clothes, j Next time she arrives on the stage j she is really Miss Hampton. Our cap tain gets the mitten. He is too free in his love to suit our heroine. But with his sword, never yet stained by anything worse than blood, he swears eternal fidelity. So he is forgiven. Tom Rlcharls plays the role of Cap tain Burnham, with William Glaser as his uncle. General Burnham. •YV Night on the Boulevard" is the I title of a pleasing comedy presented j by the Langdons, Rose, Harry and j Tully. Some good fccenery and some I clever acting on the part of Harry i Langdon kept the act In the good gracea of the audience. An almost real automobile is the setting for the! playlet and original witticisims keeps things moving. Those black faced comedians, Swor and Mack, do some realistic impres sions of southern negroes. Emily Darrell and Charley Conway | present a novel comedy called "Be hind the Scenes." Both are clever and their act is typically vaudeville. Emily Darrell brings forth a dog. a j fine brindle pup. and the dog made a > hit. So did Miss Darrell. Trained cats, dogs, pigeons and a pink eyed rabbit, composing Klut ing's entertainers, furnish a bit of genuine amusement. The dog hops over hurdles. So does the rabbit, while the cats make some fancy jumps at a basket suspended in mid air. The audience thought the cats couldn't do the trick, and that's where it was agreeably surprised. Charlotte Parry, the protean ac- I tress playing "Into the Light"; Maude j Lambert and Erne*? Ball in some i classy songs, and Ed Wynn and com pany in "The King's Jester" comprise the holdover numbers. Some good | moving pictures of current events and ! a reel showing the celebration in | Union square of the blowing up of the j Gamboa dike conclude the program. gft . mm — LEADING THEATER, ■ ElUs and Market. tW « IfcTm Bdi Phone Sutt.r 2460. m.wl% LAST TIME 11 st N.
