correct thing.        ......
We solicit a call and early inspection of
our  offering.
So Says Scroggie, of Scrog-
gie Oreek.
He Says, and You'r Sure to Strike it���A
Montreal Man's Theory 0'
the l'lacoi'B.
Victoria, Nov. 4.���Tho stoamer City
of Senttle arrived from Alaska tbis afternoon. She had on board a vast
number of Kloudikers, miners from
points along the river from Atlin and
from Cook's Inlet, aud Copper river
district. There was, it* is estimated,
from 1100,000 toflfiO.000 in treasure
aboard. Purser Thordyke had from
$70,000 to *8C,000 in charge.
NewR in given by J. Griffith Stop-
hons, a mining man of Montreal, of
new fluds on Scroggie crepk a tributary ot the Stewart river aliout '^0
miles from its mouth. This strike hns
created excitement at Dawson and
caused a stampede from the Klondike
district. Mr. Stephens went in lust
year, with a party of Mon healers,
"headed by E. B. Scroggie, a Montreal
drygoods man, and was the discoverer
of gold in Scroggio creok, which be
found on August 28 last. Stephens
says that the manner iu which Scroggie creek was located was by simply
studying the country following np the
miueral indications to tho dome. "As
everyone knows," ho said, "when
there are great mountain ranges splitting the western portiou of the conti
nent, the Rookv mountain range, tlio
middle range and the coast range, it
is in the middle range tbat placer is
found. You can follow this range
from the Arctic ocean iuto South
America and find plncer gold. The
coast range is a quartz producer.
The Koyakuk, the Klondike, the Stewart , for a portion of tho distance, the
Coeur d'Alenes, the placers of California and of South America, are all
in the middle range anil just as soon
as the prospector works out too far towards the Rooky mountains range,
where thoy approach tho middle
range, just so sure does tho minor find
himself ont of tho miueral belt. That
is why so many men have found
nothing on the Stewart. They go up
the river for a hundred miles" or so,
and then follow np some stream towards tbe Klondike and liml nothing.
In the northern country all thn plaoer
comes from domes. At Duw.win all
the gold in that rogion comes from
the Bonanza dome."
Talking of his prospecting on tho
Stewart, he said as soon ns tho parly
reached there they found good indications, magnetic sand, mica, schist,
nnd followed the lead. Twenty eight
miles np the river, on the south side,
they oame to the creok which Mr.
Stephens named Scroggio creok. Following this creek for 20 miles thoy
found the Scroggio dome. Thoy put
down a hole nud took out an average
of $1 to the pau in coarse gold. Thoy
washed out quite a little and filod over
tho discovery and oame out. As soon
ns the news [got around, thero wns n
stampede to the country, and when
Mr. Stephens left there were 55 cabins
there and over 8850 poople will wintor
at the disoovery. While Mr. Sto-
phens was on his way in, he located
several good quartz claims an a copper
lodge about a mile and a half from the
Yukon, near Five Fingers. The one
ran an onuce and 80 cents in gold and
30 per cent copper. The N. A. T. T.
company have a group of claims near
by nud a force of 15 men at work.
Oil Oity, Penua., Nov. 4. ���By the
explosion of a new boiler at the Oil
Oity Boilor works today two men were
killed, two fatally injured and a dozen
more slightly hurt The killed nro:
Charles McCoskey, John Frawley,
fatally injured, B. J. Gidders, both
legs broken and injured internally;
Dennis McMahon, injured internally.
The cause of the explosion was a detective gnage.
The Porto Rico group of six claims,
situated on Porto Rico mountain six
miles west of the siding of thnt name
on the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway in the Ymir district is being
steadily developed, with satisfactory
results. The priucipal claim tho Porto
Rico, wns located in 189(1 by G. G.
Day and W. J. Maxwell In the
spriug of 1897, Mr. W. H. Corbould secured tho group and commenced development work. At Iho present time
the mine is develored by three tunnels
of nn aggregate length of 1050 feet.
The ore is free milling quartz carrying
iron pyrites and will concentrate about
10 to 1, with values that will average
about $40 por tou. Tho vein will average abont 22 inches in width and lies
in a porphyry formation.
The initio is equipped with a flvo
drill compressor, a 10-stamp mill wilh
a capacity of 80 tons per day and nu
aerial tramway, half a mile in length
from the mine to the mill.
New York, Nov. 4.���Joe Guns, the
negro boxer, of Baltimore, won a well
earned decision over Kid MePartlaud
of this oity, before the Lennox Athletic club here tonight. Although
he did not knock MePartlaud out,
gans outclassed his opponent throughout the entire fight, which lasted the
full limit of 25 rounds, and nt no time
did McPhartlaud get the better of his
dusky rival.

Mon in England Attended
London, Nov. 4.���The banquet given
to GeiiDial Kitchener at the Mansion
house this evening wns un exceptionally brilliaut affair. A trophy of British nnd Egyptian flags entwined had

seat. The guests, who wore full dress
uuifonns, with ribbons and decorations, included tbe Duke of Oam-
bidge, the Marquis of Salisbnry and
the other cabinet ministers; Lords
Roberts, of Kandahar, Lord Strathcona and Monut Royal, Sir William
Vernon Harchort, Lord Rosebery,

weli, the lord chief justice ot England,

the Duko of Marlborough, Mr. Henry
White, tho United States chargo
d'affaires, Bnrou Rothschild, Judge
Lambert Tree, formerly United States
minister to Russia and others of the
highest rank iu the British empire.
Iu all there were about 350 gu��sts present.
The Lord Mayor received his guest
in the grand salon. General Kitchener was attired in tbo uniform of a
major general of the British army,
with tbe ribbon of the Osmans order.
He wns grcetoi with tremendous
cheers from the assembled guests.
Tho banquet was appropriately served
in the Egyptian hall of tho Mansion
house. General Kitchener sat on the
right of the Lord Mayor and tho Duko
of Cambridge was seated on the right
of the Lord Mayor and the Duko of
Cambridge was seated on tho Lord
Mayor's loft. After the dinner proper
the lady mayoress and a num her of
other ladies wore accommodated with
seats in the gallery in order to enable
them to hear the speeches.
After the loving cup had been circulated, the Lord Mayor toasted the
Queen, the Prince of Wales aud the
Royal family, to which tho Duko of
Cambridge responded.
Lord Rosebery toasted thn army
and navy, paying a glowing tribute
to Lord Kitchener and his gallant
comrades and to Lord Cromer ond lhe
Egyptian and Soudanoso forces,
"whose brilliant campaign, just closed
is the most consumuinto in tho annals
of British military history for 8(1
years and far moro beneficial nud extended in its results than,perhaps, any
recorded in history." Tho campaign,
said Lord ROBebery, bad wiped out
the "bloodiest and most barbarous tyranny in the history of mankind. " Hn
concluded by expressing the opinion
that Great Britain had "a right to
expect from the nations whoso territory bordered ou the Dervish territory
not ill feeling and jealousy, but the
fullest measure of gratitude. "
Admiral Sir Nowell Salmon the
first nnd principal naval aide-de-camp
to the Queen, responded for the navy,
and the Secretary of State for War
Lord Landsdowno, for tho army.
Thore was a foeiing of expectancy
throughout the spooches and everything that could be construed as au
allusion to wnr was jumped at by the
assembly with prolonged cheers. When
Sir   Nowell   Salmon   alluded    to   the
preparedness of tho navy,'" and
Lord LandBdowno to tho "readiness
ofthe army," thero were prolonged
The nssombly greeted tho rising of
tho Murquis of Salisbury to toast the
Sirdar with norvous silence, ns it had
boon whispered thnt ho had an important and gravo statement tn make.
His statement was important, but it
was pacific as ho announced a settlement of the chief difficulty with
France.    The  premier  said  in   part:
No    one can  wonder  at  the  vast
enthusiasm   by   which   the   career  of
the great soldier has been reoeived, especially when we  consider the strange
dramatic interest of tho circumstances
and conditions amid which his laurels
wero won by the   Sirdar.    Besides being a splendid   soldier,     he is  also   a:
splendid   diplomatist.     It  must   have I
required   unusual   talents  successfully *
to carry   out   the   delicate mission   up

circumstances, that to persist in an
occupation whioh would only cost
thom money and do harm, merely because some bud advisers thought it
might bo disagreeable to an unwelcome neighbor, would not show the
wisdom with which, as I think, the I
French republic has beeu uniformly
"They have done what I bclievo
every government would have done
in the same position, resolved that the
occupation must cease (cheers). I
must not be understood as saying that
all causes of coutroversy are removed.
That is not so. Doubtless tbere will
be many discussions hetween us ; but a
somewhat acute and somewhat dangerous cause of difference has been
General Kitchener's reply, wliich
was modest and not important, gave
unstinted praise to the British, Egyptian and Soudanese troops. The Sirdar
said he wonld indeed have been an incapable leader if he had failed of victory with such soldiers. He gave some
details as to the expenses of the expedition, dwelling with pride upou the
cheapness, aud, in summing up the
"assets that remain," referred to 600
miles of railway, gunboats, a flotilla
of sailing craft, and, after a pause, the
Soudan.    (Laughter   aud Applause).
A striking feature of the scene was
the presenco of u number of young officers of the Guards, Life Guards and
21st Lancers, who bad served with the
Sirdar. Several of them wore wounded
and walked with crutches or with
their arms in slings.
Groat  Transcontinental  Highways to

The officials of the Canndaii Pacifi

hands, and it is understood that at
this early date steps are being taken to
get things in shape for the hattie
which is r'liiii to begin with the American railroad interests, beaded by the
Groat Northern railway, over an entrance into Southern British Columbia, to compete with the Canadian Pacific railway. Tho American roads

at 3 p. m. ,*a fireman came hurriedly
on deck and reported that tho ship was
on fire. A general alarm was given
and an effort made to lower the boats,

place. Tho member for the riding
should loug ago lmvOj taken action to
have such buildings provided, but evidently Mr. Bostock has not that regard for tbo needs of the principal city
in his constituency that he should
have. He seldom comes hero and has
oreated the impression that ho avoids
the place. Of course, this is a mis
taken idea, for Mr. Bostock has many
duties to call him elsewhere. The
fact remains, however, that ho has
done nothing towards meeting the
wishes of the people of Nelson in regard to public buildings. We would
advise tho Board of Trade to send their
requests directly to Hon. Mr. Tarte,
minister of the department of public
works. Mr. Tarte is a gentleman who
interests himself in all puhlie needs
within the province of his department
and can he depended upon tn pive all
such matters immediate attention,
The government lias been called upou
to spend very little money in this city,
aud it can not refuse to provide the
buildings desired. Milch less import-
nut places than this secure government
offices sucb as they need without trouble, and Nelson should have no difficulty in th.i* direction, A custom
house, iutoi'uid ruveuue office and a
postoffice are wanted. It is for the
government In say whether these
should bo under one roof. If tho government consulted future needs it
would erect a post office that would bo
commodious enough tn serve this rapidly growiii!,' eity for many years to
come, and it would provide a separate
building for a custom house and internal revonne ollice.
Hon. Joseph Martin is satisfied
that silver-lead and lead products will
be commodities whieh will bo taken
into consideration in a reciprocity
treaty, if one be entered into between
the United States and Canada. It is
also understood thai if no treaty be arrived nt that the Dominion government, in order to give British Columbia tho protection it is entitled under
the present protective policy of tho government,will increase the import duties
on lead products, or place thein the
samo as those which apply on silvor lend
nnd lead products entering the United
Stntes. This is one of the alternatives
proposed hy Mr. Hugh Sutherland
which should lm adopted if the loud
producers of this province are to receive fair treatment. It is understood
that the government is in full possession of the facts bearing on the matter und that the suhjeet has already
beon before the Quobeo conference
for consideration. At the present time
tbo producers of silver-lead nnd lead
iires|iii this province labor under great
disabilities which seriously affect the
profits which should ho theirs. If the
remedy layin their own hands it would
be very easy to apply it, but it does
not. It is a question of legislation
and evory ono knows that tho Canadian government has hesitated to adopt
auy policy which could bo construed
into retaliation or exclusion. Such aro
contrary to British ethics in tho administration of publio affairs. If our
American friends would sro lhat it
would not put thom at a disadvantage
but would ensure them larger trade,
tbey would amend the customs duties
npplying to silver-lead and lead ore,
but unfortunatoly the government at
Washington is constrained to consider
publio opinion in the western inining
stntes, and that; opinion is decidedly
against what nro called "concessions
to Canada." Tio time will come when
these duties will bo found to have been
a great mistake, inasmuch as tliey
drove Canadians to look around for re-
liof, with tbo result that they devised
means to retain m their own country
the profits accruing fnnn the treatment
of oro, whicli profits formerly went to
Americau smelters.
Nelson promises to become quite a
placo for theatricals, wbat is known
to the profession as "a good show
town." For the past week an excellent dramatic company, has filled the
rink nightly with fashionable audiences, and notwithstanding many
drawbacks in the shape of lack of accommodation, havo given most creditable performances. The company
will stay another week and two other
companies discovering that Nelson patronizes amusements liberally are anxious to come in and share in the honors and the rewards of effort. Tho
groat lack at tho present time is a
theatre or building which, whilo serving the purposes of an opera bouse as
required, could also be utilized for social and other gatherings. Por|waiit of
a more suitable place tho rink has boon
made to serve, and tbo owuor of that
placo has done all in his power to
moot requirements. But tho building
is illy adapted for dramatic entertainments and will shortly, the winter he-
ing at band, revert to tbo purpose
for which it is intended.
We are glad to say tbat plans are in
preparation for an opera house on Viotoria street, in a central position and
easily reached from all parts of the
city. The citizens should lend this
enterprise every assistance iu their
power and encourage it in every way.
The more substantial the character
of the building the better for tbe owners aud the more creditable to the city.
With Buch a building available we
shall have first-class companies, and in
a city so devoid of amusement as this,
thoy will be certain of audiences that
will be as encouraging as they will be
To the Editor of The Miner.
Sir:���Winter will soon be with us
aud the Kootenay winter is perhaps a
little trying to the patience of most of
us. Certain it is that the endless resources for amusement which in the
summer this country affords are considerably curtailed in the winter. That
beiug so it behooves us all for the
good of tbe community to do whar
we can in the way of affording some
form of recreation during the coming
winter. I think I may safely say-
that, to a great number of our citizens
good music is exceedingly attractive.
We have any amount of musical talent
in Ne.sou which is far above the average considering the size of the town,
aud only requires a certain amount of
organization aud a little amount of individual application hy the fortunate
possessors of that talent in order to
produco excellent music. Under theso
circumstances some of us havo mau
aged to meet together informally, aud
individually help each other to practice and to organize one or two good
concerts for the coming winter. (By
the way there is plenty of room for
Tho want of a proper building for
concerts is sadly felt, a want which I
trust will shortly be supplied; still
under the circumstances we intend to
do the best we can witb the menus at
our disposal. The Indies of the National Council of Woman bavo requested ub to give a concert uuder their auspices ou Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24,
Tho Presbyterian ehureh has been
kindly leut for that purpose. The pro-
coeds of the concert are lo bo divided
equally betweeu the Kootenay Luke
t Ieneral hospital and tho proposod free
library. A special feature of ibis concert will be the debut iu Nelsou of
Mrs. Melville Parry who posseses a
beautiful and perfectly trained Boprano
voice which has earned for her a well
deserved reputation in Winnipeg and
elsewhere. Mrs. Melville Parry has
generously offered her services for
those deserving institutions nud it remains for the public to show their appreciation of her goodness by insuring
us a full house for this��couccrt
A choir of ladies and gentlemen and
a small orchestra havo boen practicing zealously for somo time past in
the hope of being ablo to perform the
music which they have undertaken for
this event as perfectly as their musical
attainments will permit. It must be
remembered that uo little self denial
has to be exercised by ladies who have
household duties to attend to nnd men
who hnve their daily work to occupy
them in order to give threo and sometimes four evenings a week to practice
and for tlieir sakes to I do most sincerely hopo that they will have tho
hearty support nnd material co-operation of tlieir fellow citizens. Pull particulars as to seats, programme, etc,
of   this   concort   will shortly   appear.
It is also proposod to render on
Christmas Eve, during the service in
the now English church, portions of
tlio Messiah and   Old English   Carols.
Also in Leut of the eusuing year we
intend to give an   Oratorio.    Wo  also
propose   to   give   popular concerts ou
the   first   Sunday     of   every   month.
Theso concerts, whicli   will coinniouco
at i! :'10   in   the  afternoon,   will  last
i about an hour nud a   quarter and will
I consist of sacred and   classical   music,
I both   vocal    and    instrumental.    No
chargo will be made for admission but
collections may scmetimes bo made for
i the expenses of tho music and for such
| charitable and   public   institutions   ns
may at auy   time   require   assistance.
Hero     again   the   want   of a   proper
I building handicaps us.    Tho  first free
Sunday concert will be held on Decern-
ber 4, and unless a  suitable   building
I can   be obtained, I can  only offer my
house.    I could seat 70 pooplo and   the
' acoustic properties of tho room uro not
first class, still, unfortunately,   I   can
think  of no other placo.   It must bo
distinctly understood   that  wherever,
the concerts are held thoy will bo   absolutely free to   uny ono.   However,
to avoid any  overcrowding   or   disap-
i poiiitiiient. tickets will bo   issued   for
; every available seat] aud  anyono  who
requires a ticket has only to   apply   to
me for the same.   Tbo tickets will  be
allotted iii the   order   in   which   they
lire applied for, and my   own more in*
j timalo friends must forgive me ii I ap-
' yiiy severely the maxim of "first come
first served,' 'for it wou'.d be obviously
unfair to do otherwise.
A programme of the musio will appear in The Miner ou the Saturday
immediately preceding the Sunduy on
which the concert is to be held. Yours
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir:���In your issue of Ihe 2ud inst.,
is an article] entitled "A Labor Pa,-
mino" in which R fi. Kerr of Now-
Denver says that every available man
is employed in tho niiues, carpenters
are not to he had. and it is difficult to
get men to cut wood, even at 111 per
day, in Sandon almost impossible,"
etc. In justice to men looking for
wurk I take the liberty to contradict
this statement. Men iu every instance are more available thnn work.
When one considers that cutting cord-
wood, especially at the mines means
working in sleet and snow almost continually at this particular season, they
eau readily see tho reason why it is
difficult to get meu for that kind of
work. Right now there aro over twenty
idle men in Silverton who nre willing
to work nt anything and there are men
coining iu from Sandon every day
who tell tho samo story���No work
With all respect to Mr. Kerr I must
sav that his statement is entirely misleading. Tho conditions described by
Mr. Kerr did exist a few weoks ago
but now that the snow is aeuding
prospectors iu from the bills the reverse is true.    Yours truly,

The Government Will Stand
No Nonsense.
General Hallowes, Acting Governor, Denounces the Eecent Disturbances'
Lawlessness Not Tolerable.
Kingston, Jamaica, Nov. 4.���General Hallowes, the acting governor, arrived in the Maroou district yesterday,
where he covened a public meeting
ond denounced tlio recent disturbances
with soldierly directness nnd determination. He made a speech of 800
words, bnt each sentence was pregnant
with indignant reprimand and warning. He said that ho wished overy
one to understand that he did not
blame the Maroons for the recent occurences so. much as he blamed that
lawless pnrt of the community, which
by meetings, money contributions and
other means, encouraged a serious
breach of tho Ifrws. Continuing, the
general said he would warn these
persons that they were well known by
name and action lo the government,
adding that the law must bo maintained and thnt he intended to maintain it with the utmost vii>or. The
general then dealt with the land question, which was the root of the recent
troublos, promising ameliorating legis
lation and pledging the government
to do justice in the matter. The
visit of General Hallowes to the
Maroon district has produced an excellent effect, seemingly completely appeasing the feelings of discontent
which existed among the   Maroons.
The Famous Tom Creek Sold to   English   Capitalists.
Tom creek, the famous placer stream
of the Omenioa oountry. has been sold
to an English syndicate for the sum
of $20,000. This interesting piece of
mining news wns brought down from
the north by the steamer Queen City,
which has unexpectedly arrived in
port. The news possibly means mnch
for a country, which while known to
be very rich in thc precious metal, requires considerable  capital to dovolop.
Tom creek lias an interesting history.
Years ago it was a famous stream for
the men of the pan and the rocker
that adventurously penetrated au almost unknown laud in smirch of gold.
Some very large nuggetB were found,
and a stampede to the creek and the
surrounding couutry took place.
Small fortunes were taken out, and
it was thought for a time thnt Cariboo
had been eclipsed. The diggings,
however, appear to be worked out, and
were almost abandoned A few yenrs
ago, however, Jas. D. Wells, of Oinen-
ica, mining recorder; Colonel Black,
of Viotoria, and several other gentlemen believing that the creok could be
worked well with machinery, secured
nearly all the claims on it. While
doing a little development work, they
have simply held the claims, with a
vew to selling them. Mr. Wells
was in Victoria last fall with this object in view but did uot put a deal he
had on through. For several months
past negotiations have been going on
with the representative of nu English
syndicate in regard to the properties,
and the deal hns at last put through.
It is said that it is the intention of
the company to take expeusive mining machinery into the creek and woik
it for all it is worth. He believes that
it will prove a profitable investment.
Should Tom creok turn out rich,
much attention will be attracted to
Omenioa, which while known to be a
rich country has been passed over by

"The Millionaire's Wife" Put on Last
Night nt   the Skating Rink.
The Bittuer oompany showed a powerful play Inst night, when they put
on "The Millionaire's Wife," n ilriuun
whioh reminded one of that one-time
favorite "East* Lynne." Whon the
curtain rises Hurry Grantly nml liis
wife, Florence, aro discovered discussing the approaching visit nf Blanche
Sterling, an old school friend nf Elor-
e nce's. Blanche is not well off, mid
Harry, from motives of generosity is
anxious for her in eome but his
wife, who ihiu'.is Blanche oonios hetween herself and lur hnsbnud, objects to the proponed visii Harry lingered by what be considers capricious-
ness insists. So Blanche arrives, mi'l.
notwithstanding nil Dnele i nrdetle's
efforts ns a mod in tar, Florence bo-
comes insanely jealous, mnl finally is
estranged from lur husband. After
much bickering, they decided tosepnr- on
ate. nnd 1 lurry set lis :< lnrgo sum <*:
money ou bis wife, aud also gives
Blanche Rose Cnttnge, their old
home, and a smnll income in reparation for having, as lie cousiders,
unwittingly damaged  ber reputation.
In the meantime, James Gordon,
the mun who does lhe chores, recognizes in Blanche a former wife of his,
who levanted with nil his savings.
He had followed her for a long time,
eventually going out of his mind
through his sufferings. He cauic to
Rose Cottage from tlm asylum. Gordon tolls his troubles to Miggs, ex-
dime museum keeper mid trump, who BIKER ST.
spends his sparo time in making love
to aud getting meals from Sully, the
pretty housemaid. Gordon confronts
his wife in her bedroom and Miggs
hears everything that goes on, but is
bribed to silence. In the founkh act COT) A
Blanche gets a letter from Harry who k ' ;
says that, he is ruined aud ill, but will
marry hor as lie promised. Blanche
will have nothing to do witli him now
he is poor, orders him out of tlio house,
and after a painful scene Hurry, who
is very ill, fulls fainting on tlie sofa.
Jessup tho lawyer, is attending him,
when Florence, who had bought the
house the dny before, comes in and
trios to bring him to. Whilo thus engaged Uncle Burdette conies on, having got Qordon out of the asylum
where Miggs bus put bim, with Gordon and the necessary witneses.
Harry recovers and, with his wife,
hears tho unmasking of Blanche. The
two are reconciled, und the wretched
Miggs is hauled off in irons to meditate
on his mishaps in jail.
Florence Grnntley, the loving, proud
imt rather tactless wil", was powerfully and sympathetically played bv
Miss Mattie Ohoate. Miss Hilly Stevens, ns Blanche lhe scheming adventuress, gavo an exhibition of very
clever acting, showing herself to be aii
accomplished artist Mrs. Kelly, ns
saucy Sally, was a fascinating and
pretty soubri'tte. Her ������ivaoity wns
in strong relief in tin gloom that
otherwise   rather   shrouds   the peioe.
As  Harry    Grantley,   J.   Waldron
treated   the   audience   to one   nf the
best pieces   of   work be  bus given   us
yet.    He was extremely good throughout.   W. ,1. Fredericks, fm- a wonder
was not the   villain,   Imt instead   the
kind   hearted   old Uncle   Burdette,   a
cleverly  and    artistically   portrayed
character.      Tin-    soouudrel      Miggs
was played by E. B. Kelly   witli   bis
usual  dash    aud   cleverness.    Miggs'
comicality   went  far   iu tho   eyes of I
the audiouce, to redeoni  liis baseness, !
Tho mesmerising scene was very funny
aud unexpected.       W. W. Bittner.
tho   unfortunate    Gordon,   was  very '
effective.    It was a powerful piece  of |
work, well thought out and well   exc-1
cuted.    Jessup,   the alert und  cynical
luwyer, was well played  by E. Mitchell) "and Lew Rose, as Joe   llie garden-
er, nfforded mnch   amusement to  the
audionce.     The  specialities   included
some fresh Waragrnph pictures, among
whicli   were   the   execution  of   Mary
Queen of Scots,   n country prize tight,
and   n   kissing   scene.    L.   McClellan
gave a Gorman dialect  song   and clog
dance with his  usual oleverness,   and
was   awarded  an  encore.    Low  Rose
got a well  earned  encore for a  comic J-*?: A"Jr,'��c.KA
