That was a very successful and
well timed reception and banquet
that was tendered to Governor West
laHt night by the business men or
tbe city at the new Umprjus. It was
a real Informal, unconventional so
cial greeting and meeting of the men
of Hi fairs, with '.he Chief Executive
of the state.. There were no poll
ties, no fen co fixings, no button hol
ing, no whispered corner conferences
and no frills. Men who differed
frankly and forcibly with the guest
of honor on policies and theories and
act 'j, were as cordiul In their greet
iuH as those -who have suported
him In every manner. One of these.
arid he Is one of the most Influential
factors In the uf fairs of Importance,
ventured the remark, that while
there was iMJBsIbly not a single ques
tion on which he and the governor
agreed, still they were the best of
frienclK, and he was glad to be there,
and this was the spirit that animat
ed all.
Nearly one bundred guests were
In their places at the banquet that
followed the reception In the hotel
lobby, and which lasted up to the
last mlnuto allowed before time ror
departure of the officials for the
north, Judge Dexter Hice cted aH
t oust master In his usual felicitous
manner, and after cigars were light
ed called upon Circuit .Judge Hamil
ton for the first tall. His Honor
was more than gracious and Impres
sive In hlH remarks, nnd was given
the closest attention while he cover
ed a large Hold of local topics and
much good seed was sown on very
fertile soti, from which results and
benefits are sure to accrue. The
informal chat made by the governor
next, was given the heartiest appre
ciation and was more of the nature
uf a little friendly conversation with
old timo friends than a set speech,
Ilk that delivered at the fair
grounds In the afternoon; laughter
and aplii'ise greeted him continual
ly, stories of personal experience
with some of the others present,
roinomhornnces of campaign events
all told In on Inimitable way, went
far to show tho remarkable vote
getting capacities of the man.
Tho lant and longest speaker on
the list was Professor Kebec, of the
Hlate University, and ho Interested
this assembly of busy men In many
things that were new to them, while
he kept their attention during his
lengthy speech, with his remarkable
diction nnd superbly rounded sen
tences. Such occasflons as last night arc
of more benefit in bringing the vnr
lous sections of city and county to
gether, than many other means that
have been used, and while we cannot
always have n governor with us nt
these times, It Is not necessary, for
when the men of a community meet
In social Intercourse as this was, one
finds out things In his neighbor that
ho did not kno wwer there, kindlier
foidlnk's are promulgated over the
curling smoke nnd after the well
served viands. Let us have more of
them and seo what a harmonious
feeling will Iw started and kept alive.

20 fet high and 26 feet deep This
gives to Koseburg a Htage that Is
as largo as Is needed to show the
best plays that travel, it gives the
actors plenty of stage room to ren
der an artihic Interpretation of their
parts and does away with the cramp
ed appearances pj familiar on small
er stages. The dressing rooms are
situated under the club rooms of the
Klks temple. They are six in num
ber and are fitted with lavaicrlea
and wash stands. Cement floors
cover these rooms and they aro sani
tary and well ventilated.
The orchestra pit Is adapted to ac
commodate -six pieces. Jt Is low
enough so that those in the orches
tra will not interfere with the view
of any of the audience, The Rose
burg orchestra will be employed to
give the musical program at all the
road shows. When the house Is used
for pictures only a pianist and a
trap drummer will be employed. The
music at alt times will be under
the personal direction of Mr. and
Mrs. G. O. Gryee, of Portland, both
of whom are musicians of note in tho
metropolis. ,
Moving pictures are good only
when the machine that throws them
on the screen good. The best film
ever made becomes blurry and un
sightly through a pour machine.
Manager Uloom provided against this
when he purchased the Motiograph
machine for use In the Antlers. The
Motiograph lb the first picture ma
chine that was a success and It has
continued to maintain Its lead, it
bh rows (i orllllane ;im f Uc.kerless
picture osi tho Bcreen, one that will
not the eye while looking at it.
It Is provided with a patented double
cono Beml-lnterrupter shutter which
reduces1 the period of non-ex osu re
by about 25 per cent and Increases
and Intensifies the picture when
thrown on the screen. In addition
to this machine Mr. Uloom has still
another one for use In case of emer
gency. He has purchased a rfpot
light projector of the latest pattern
and a dissolving slide machine for
use In special scene slides.
At all times lexcept when road
Bhows are booked there wilt be one
mntlnee eAery afternoon and 'two
shows In tho evening. The matinee
will begin at 2:30 every afternoon
and the evening shows will be at
7::t0 and 8:45. The doors nre open
1 5 minutes before the show starts,
''or both road shows and picture
shows uniformed ushers will seat
tho patrons: of tho house, Bert
Hates and Herbert Qulne are the
courteous young men who have
been employed for this purpose.
The following road shows have al-'
ready been booked. Other contracts

Uloom will try to have nt least one

The other nights of the season
when road shows are1 not billed the
Antlers will be conducted along the
same line as the Hellig at Portland.
Four clean. wholesome motion
plays and retrcshf ug music will bo
tbe regular program. The upstair
seats will be omn only on Saturday
and Sunday nights. Only when road j
attractions are hilled will the seats i
be reserved. On all other occasions
patrons will be permitted their choice
of the seats that are not alread or- i
cupied. i
Tho theatre will he cool and pleas- '
ant In th csummer time and comfort, j
ably warm In tho winter. Manager
Uloom says that the Algiers will
not. be the coolest place on earth be-
he doesn't want bis patrons to
i i'Phh like lqulmo, but promises
thiH on the hot; sirlt.rv lnys his!
pa'rons will find a delightful day to
spend an hour or two in a place that
will make them comfortable.
The exiert eloctrician 'that has
been employed by Mr. Bloom comes
from Portland. Mr. George B. Evans
has had several years years exper
ience In the Portland theatres and,
will look aKer the Mights during
rORd show engagements and on other
occasions will operate the Motio
graph machine In the fire proor
booth In the gfUlery.
it would not be proper to conclude
this description of the Antlers with
out saying a word about Manager
Bloom, He Is a hard man to inter
view. Ho Is modest to an extreme
and while he answered all questions
about the new play houne and was
courteous in taking a News repre
sentative over the plans, still he does
not feel like saying praisewrothy
things about the play -house. He
wants the public to make these ex
pressions. Mr. Bloom has resided
In Portland fjr the past 15 years.
He Is man lea and has a charming
wife and a little girl just four years
old. Mrs. .Bloom and their little
daughter will arrive in Hoseburg
within the next few weeks and take
up their permanent residence here.
For the paMt ten years Mr. Bloom
has "beea visiting Hoseburg and
every time he caime here he was look
ing for the proper opening. He liked
the. city and he wanted to make it
his home. After ten years of travel
he found the owning he had been
looking for and he snapped It up.
He wants to give the people of Hose
burg the best there is In the motion
picture world as well as the very
highest class of road shows that can
be obtained. 'I want the people of
Hoseburg to feel that the Antlers is
their theatre. They are the ones to
be pleased and I want them to feel
free to offer suggstions looking to
the betterment of the theatre both
from the viewpoint of the shows and
pictures and the convenience of the
patrons," was the way Mr. Bloom ex
pressed himself.
It 1b probable that an informal
opening will be given on the nigfit
xtf September the 30th. If so, pic
tureswill be shown and Mr. Bloom
will ask the people of Hoseburg to
view the ihouse before the grand
opening. In this way the people will
have an opportunity of seeing the
new theatre at a moderate price be
fore Officer 666 arrives.
