GRAND OPERA HOUSE.
FLORODORA.
'Fiorodora', the record breaking
play, the best advertised musical
cornedv since
and woman have
looked to the stage for a large part
of their diversion will hold the
boards at theOoera House to-night.
The company arrived here in their
own special train in which they
have 1 raveled from New York to
San Francisco, to Los Angelas, t^
New Orleans and now to this city.
There are 100 players and
pert stage artists in the company
and to-gether they give a produc
tion which has never been equalled
by any company making a com
prehensive tour of the country
Among those who will appear
with the company are: Miss Grace
Dudley, Miss Della Valdez, Miss
Francis Gordon, Miss Ida Doerge,
Miss Selma Mauitell, Miss Nan Ii.
Randolph. Miss Daisy Leighton,
•Miss Marion Dent Grant, Miss Hel

the expression of Mr, R. Hay Chap

los Herald, after seeing the "Fior
odora" company which ia to visit
this city. The company and pro- |
duclion absolutely defy criticism,"
| be added,
"Fiorodora" is an English com
edy in two acts. The book is by
Owen Hall, author of "Geisha,"
"The Gavety Gill" and other well
known pieces, and the music ia by
Leslie Stuart. The play was first
produceo by Lewis Hooper, of the
Lyric Theatre. London, and there
has been no statement in the inter
est taken in the show. There is
plot to "Fiorodora *' than to most
musical comedies, and it tells rea
sonable but fantastic story, A
Philippine island ol the name of the
play is owned by one Cyrus Gilfain,
who has a host of employees mak
ing a perfume, the secret is care
fully guarded. Becoming rich he
moves to Wales taking within his
entire colony and a complication of
love affairs. Professor Twcedle
puneb who spent sometime on the
island ot Fiorodora, reappears in
Whales, proves that (iilfain is a
usurper who has stolen the orphan
and unites the lovers whom Gilfain
was trying to separate, and makes
it possible for the latter to marry
Lady ITo.yrood. a society widow.
The plot is. however, is of sec
ondary consideration. The chief
pleasure in the piece is to be found
in its bright lyrics, its chorus
groupings, it& dances, its spectac
ular scenery and its light effects.
The best known number in the
piece is. o! course. "Tell me. Pret
ty Maiden." whichevervbody wants
to whistle:bul there are many other
bright bits of music, among them—

three score and ten years.
For over forty years lie has been a
wearer of the star, and never did a
perservator of the peace have a more
thriiling experience than this honored
veteran. He served on the force when
a man carried his life in his hands,
for in days gone by there were but

and at times "Uncle Billy" likes to
tell the members of the present force
how the men had to formerly work
when there were no telephones, no
system of reporting and calling for
lielp and no patrol wagon.
"Uncle Billy" as lie is fami iarly
called is (respected by every man on
the force. He is in active service and
during the past year in addition to
being court officer lie did street duty
in the King Street market but Chief
Black in all probability will not ask
him to stay on duty until 10.30 in the
market. He will be relieved, likely
