Commencing with the Sunday mat inee, the positive appearance of the photoplay gem of the year. Jack Lon don's "Sea Wolf," Is announced. This stirring narrative of the Pacific was taken under the personal supervr ;.in of the author, Jack London, and Mr. Hobart Bosworth, who plays the lead ing role, that of "Wolf" Larsen, the brutal captain of "The Ghost." Nearly all of the scenes were filmed in and around San Francisco bay and are suid to be marvels of photography. * * * The second performance by the The atre Francais company will be given tomorrow night at Scottish Rite audi torium, when a most interesting double bill will be offered. The performance will open with the charming one act comedy. "fEte* de la Saint-Martin." by Meilhac and Halevy. The second part of the performance will consist of Offenbach's opera comlque, "Marriage by Lantern," which is one of the masterpieces of that form of composition. An excellent cast of singers and a complete orchestra under the baton of M. Emilio Puyans wilt interpret this little work. Tickets may be secured at Sherman, Clay & Co.'s or at the door on the evening of the performance. The fourth symphony concert of the San Francisco symphonj* orchestra will be given at the Cort thea ter tomorrow afternoon, commencing at 3 o'clock sharp, and the excellent program will be enriched by the pres ence of Clarence Whltehlll, the ster ling barytone of the Chicago opera company. In the main the offerings of the orchestra will be as familiar as they are melodious. The symphony will be the No. 1 ln C minor of Brahms. Lovers of Wagner will be pleased with the matchless and masterly singing of Wotan's farewell and the magic Are scene from "Die Walkure" and the Hans Sachs monologue, "Wahn! Wahn!" from "The Meistersinger," by Clarence Whitehlll. Whltehlll has long been acknowledged as the lead ing Wagnerian barytone. MRS. FISKE COMING 9W9 <S>WS> "The High Road/ Actress' Vehicle Has Strong Theme Minnie Maddern Fiske. Mary Page, an untutored and uned- ' ucated child of the country, born to a life of drudgery and paternal cruelty, but with a keen imagination and a longing for the beautiful things and a broader vista than that of her sordid surroundings, had listened to the love songs of Alan Wilson, a wealthy young artist and collector, who had made her home his stopping place during a summer sketching tour. With him she traveled, ever in an atmosphere of wonder and romance, to the art centers of the world, whence he collected priceless treasures to adorn their home in Riverside drive. New York. But during the three years that had elapsed since they left the farm a realisation had come to Mary that she had missed life's great meaning, and stronger and stronger grew the conviction that she must cast aside all she had known of lux ury and go forth, humbly, to work out her own regeneration. How she does so, through periods of storm and stress, and how great is her eventual crown of victory, Ed ward Sheldon has told in his vivid play, "The High Road," in which Mrs. Flske is to be seen at the Columbia theater during the two weeks begin ning Monday night next. As corele vants of the main themo of the play, the young author has introduced a number of present day social and po litical problems, which make for an interest that is said to be as engross ing as it Is timely. In this dramatically complex but wonderfully human role Mrs. Fiski has achieved a notable success, one of the most brilliant of her career.

The Robert Mantell engagement at the Cort theater is coming to a close. It has proved eminently successful. Tonight the eminent tragedian will be seen in "Richelieu," tomorrow night in "King John" and at the Saturday matinee in "Hamlet." A repetition of Casimer Delavigne's "Louis XI" on Saturday night will be the final bill. * * * Paul Armstrong's versatility as a playwright is again to be demonstrated at the Alcazar, where his "Salomy Jane" will be presented next week, following his "The Escape." He adapt ed "Salomy Jane" from Bret Harte's famous story, entitled "Salomy Jane's Kiss." Its locale is the Sierra foot hills, its period the early sixties and its characters are types which have been eliminated by civilization's ad vance. When the play was last pre sented here the "team work" of Miss Vaughan and Mr. Lytell was unan imously pronounced the finest they ever did on that stage. * * ( ♦ The final performance of "The Candy Shop" at the Gaiety theater is now definitely announced for Sunday night, the 14th. This sensational suc cess, to which San Francisco has re sponded with that enthusiasm it al ways shows for a good thing well done, will have by that time played close to 100 times. Though this is a record run in San Francisco in these days, there is little reason for believ ing that "The Candy Shop" would not have continued indefinitely at th« Gaiety, for at no time has there been any falling off in the remarkable business, which, now that the closing days are announced, has grown to capacity. * * * "The Common Law," a dramatiza tion of Robert W. Chambers' widely discussed novel, will begin an en gagement limited to two weeks at the Savoy theater next Monday. No book of fiction of recent times has caused such a sensation as has "The Common Law," and it is said that no other story of a similar nature has lent itself so admirably to dramatic purposes as has this absorbingly in teresting tale. The well known New York pro ducer, A. H. Woods, has taken espe cial pains to make Mr. Chambers' novel a play that should have endur ing fame. During the engagement of "The Common Law" matinees will be given Wednesday, Saturday and Sun day. In the meantime the wonderful Cap tain Scott south pole expedition, mo tion pictures are in their last week at the Savoy theater. Taylor Granville and Ijaura Pter pont will appear in the new bill at tlie Orpheum Sunday in the one act play. "The System," which deals with the police as they are and the under world as it is. This act was written by Mr. Granville and Junie McCree. and one of its greatest is it." character drawing. Lyons and Yosco. "The Harpist and the Singer," and both natives of sunny Italy, will be heard in their latest successes, "When I First Met Yov." "Margarita," "I'm Coming Back to Dixie and You" and "Mardi Gras Rag." ( Clayton Kennedy and Mattie Rooney in an eccentric comedy skit; MarshaJU j. Montgomery, ventriloquist, and Brothers in an acrobatic novelty will complete the new acts. Next week will be the last of Billy Gould and Belle Ashlyn, John E. Haz zard and Marie McFarland and Ma dame ?. « * * * Capacity houses and the S. R.
