THE SPOKUTE PRESS IN HIS STEPS LONDON BOBBY'S CHARGES AGAINST ACTRESS FALSE MISS AIDA LUTINA. LONDON, Oct. 31.—The London police have just been shown to have conspired to destroy the good name of Miss Lillian Grey, better Known by her stage name of "Aida Lutina," a star of the English the atrical world. Miss Lutina has just been tri umphantly acquitted of the charge of molesting men at midnight in the streets of London. Opinion is gen eral that there should be an inves tigation into the police methods at Scotland Yard. Miss Lutlna's arrest occurred at midnight, on Holborn, as she was on her way home.

It takes seven skilled electricians to look after the act and there is as much scenery used in this act alone as is usually car ried by an entire show. This is only one of the many features I Manager Dinkins has to offer. WIZARD HERRMANN COMING. Quite the most pretentious pro duction of magic art which will bo presented this season concerns the appearance of Adelaide Herriuan at the Spokane theater for two nights. Mme. Herrmann, who is doubtless well known as the widow of the late Herrmann, The Great, possesses, besides the knowledge of her husband's life work, the added charm of a pleasing person All women should strive to be beautiful.

He arrested her, he said, immediately after she had accosted a passerby. Other police men and one or two men gave evi dence that they knew Miss Lutina to be of bad reputation. This was the whole case for the police, and was placed before the court by a lawyer hired by Scotland Yard. During the testimony against her Miss Lutina wept bitterly in her dock, and moaned, "I cannot bear it; I cannot listen to it; I haye 1 nevermolested anybody. Oh, my poor father." Miss Lutina fortunately was able to find witnesses who testified that she had not spoken to anyone, and that the police simply made her a prisoner as she was walking quiet ly along the street. Wm. Garten, one of these witnesses, declared that the police tried to compel him to give false testimony in the case. Tho police denied any such con versation with Garten had been held, but another employe of the underground railway station swore that he had overheard the conver sation, and that Garten spoke the truth. Two other witnesses testified that they happened to be a little distance behind the policeman when he made the arrest, and that there was no one else in the street, so that Miss Lutina could not have accosted anyone. This evidence was sufficient for the jtnlge, and he discharged Miss Lutina. ality. She has tnken up the work of magic where the great magician left off and this season has pre pared an entertainment replete with novel Illusions, deft effects and incomparable scenic environ ment. Under the direction of Ed ward Thurnaer, Mme. Herrmann is presented with an adequate sup porting company, and should prove a potent attraction for cosmopoli tan play goers who seek novelty in the theater. Mine. Herrmann will appear before Spokane audiences next Sunday and Monday. "TENDERFOOT" AND FIGMAN. That delightful musical coniery, "Tho Tenderfoot," with a big com pany, headed by Oscar L. Figman, is to be the attraction at the Spo kane theater Friday and Saturday, November 'A and 4. Mr. Figman was the best Burgomaster who ever played the title role in that delight ful musical comedy, and it will be interesting to see what he will do with the role of Professor Petti bone in "The Tenderfoot." Mr. Figman was said by the Chicago critics to be a better Professor Pet tibone than Mr. Carle, and Chicago has ever been loud in praises of the man who is now starring In "The Mayor of Tokio." The com pany will number nearly 70 people. NEW AMERICAN CONSUL A PKOMISIINT TRAINMAN. The many friends of (J. H, Hausnn engineer tj. 12. & W, It.
