Venus lost her silver slipper an. came to earth to find it, and this was the fragile plot about which one of the nrettiost comic operas of recent years, is woven. Those who found their way to the Geunett last night t see "The Silver Slipper" were charm cd. The mnic is pretty, the humor wholesome, the costuming gorgeous, and the chorus girls pretty. What else could one ask? ' While the music i probably not as catchy as that in tht "Prince of Pilseu," or in "Flon dora," all the songs had a prett melody and they wrere well rendered The company is even larger than that which produced the "Prince of Pil sen" and some little trouble was en countered in staging the production, yet everything went off without a liitch.y Thomas Keogh, as Ilenr Ilensch, showman, was very clever it the leading comedy role. ITe had : lot of new fun to deliver and the r dience received it with voeiferor applause. Harry iJurched and Ifor ace Wright in the two leading ro mantic roles, were both excellent. Theii ir sonrs worn exceptionally well received. Miss Loia Leib as Stella from Venus, has a good voice and i the very embodiment of the part Gertrude Millington as Wrennie, was Jiowever, the lone star of I,0 evenin- KM vie? o) Her songs and character studi' were superb. The" chorus was strong well costumed and pretty. The danc ing girls were agile and vivac" and as a Avholc, the production was r tremendous hit. A CARD. To the Editor of the Palladium. Owing to a report in circulatioi among the citizens of the fifth ward, "that I am opposed to the city light plant," and, having been asked by many persons as to its truthfulness, I wish to say that several years ago, after a personal investigation, I dis covered that in a large number of places investigated the city plants were not only giving unsatisfactory service, but were running at a loss, and, no fund accruing to pay off the debt for the plant's installation, I considered it my duty to defend what I thought was the best interests oi' the taxpayers, and my colleagues ii council at that time will witness that I was loyal to my convictions. But since then the voters directed the council to install a light plant, thus changing the conditions. The thing to be done now is to use every pos sible effort to put it on a sound fi nancial footing and give the best of service to the consumer. Regarding the question of selling. The citizens by ballot, ordered the plant put in. They also, by ballot, should order its disposal. Shrould I be elected to rep resent the fifth ward in council, I will use my best endeavor to carry out the thoughts above expressed. C. E. Newman.
