In the atmosphere 8J foreboding and
dread of the danger -which lurks about a
frontier military post, the Columbia play
ers are again tried and again proven.
Their performance of "The Girl I Left
Behind Me puts another star in their
banner. The familiar Belasco Fyle3
drama affords excellent opportunities for
a stock organization and these are made
the most of in the present Instance. It
Is a big, cumbersome play, requiring a
long cast: and a large number of, super
numeraries. It saturated with what
we are, pleased to'call 'lo.cai color" and
the stage equipment of It makes heavy
demands on the producer's talents and It
requires careful understanding and su
perior acting to make It effective. Down
to the least detail. the production of "The
Girl I Left Behind Me," which went on
at the Columbia yesterday for a week's
run. Is satisfactory.
It Is hardly necessary to recite that tho.
action of the play takes place about tho
time of the last big Indian uprising, whenj
tne bioux tnea to eat up the settlers and
soldiers In the Pine Bldgc country- That
was in 1S30. which practically brings the
period down to the present. The dramat
ists, however, went over Into Montana
and Incited their outbreak among tho
Blackfeet The play is military in every
particular and there is enough bravely
waving banners and gunpowder In it to
suit the taste of the most ardent admirer
of blue uniforms and Army women. It Is
highly melodramatic, almost lurid at
times, but It's American good and plenty,
and that's what we like. The star
spangled heroics of this play touch up tho
best instincts In us.
Miss Countlss makes a splendid Kato
Kennlon, a part which gives her much
scope for the display of her talept The
Lieutenant .Hawkesworth of Edgar
Baume Is superior to almost any other
acting of the part vhich has ever been
given it since the pliy was produced ten
years ago. 'William Bernard has seldom
done more convincing work than he gives
us this week,' In the role of Parlow, and
he is to be congratulated on the success
of the production from the stage man
agerial tandpo!nt This latter credit is
shared in by George Berrell. who makes
an admirable General Kennlon.
"We have "William Dills in uniform, with
real jjuns and a sword In his hands, and
fierce military mustaches. Can you im
agine it? He gets a thousand miles away
from his usual character-comedy work
and hasn't a jest In his lines. Mr. Dills
is an excellent all-round actor and proves
It with his Major Burleigh. Georgo
Bloomquest Rnd Donald Bowles do very
well In light comedy roles and Frederick
Esmelton plays the Indian chief with
One of tho most unmistakable hits
which she has yet scored 'here must be
credited to Louise Brandt, who makes
the comparatively small role of "Wit
hers Ann" thoroughly delightful. She I
uu uvr n ay cuinpieteiy into tne near is
of the audience. Miss Brandt is in a
fair way to become the most popular
Ingenue who has over appeared in a.
Portland stock company.
"Dot Bernard, one of the brightest
youngsters in the acting business- Is In
the cast this week as "Fawn Afraid,"
the Indian girl. For the first time In
her life shoappears as a comparative
"grown up" and her appearance this
week seems to mark her graduation from
the ranks of.chjld actresses. Shcmadc
all that was possible out of the part.
Marlon Barhyte Improves steadily in her
acting week after week and receives a
large portion of the applause for herj
p.easmg portrayal or Lucy.

Seattle Lawyer Makes Strange Pro
posal to. Fair Authorities.
"A jugful of music, please. Operatic
preferred." . .
Before very ' long that queer request
may be telephoned to the central station i
of a $70,000 corporation shipping music
along pipes much as one might send -water
or electricity, whose headquarters may be
in the Lewis , and Clark Exposition
grounds, during thc'Falr nxt year. Such
Is the dream of T. A. Abbott, a Seattle
lawyer, who has gone to Baltimore,' Md.,
to bring West the necessary mechanical
apparatus. The project has already been
brought before the executive committee of
the Exposition, but in such shape that tho
exact details at the invention cannot be
illustrated at present.
The dream of sending music from a cen
tral station In .pipes buried in the ground,
to be switched on or off from private
houses at will. Is not a new one. It Is
eloquently referred to by Lord Lytton In
his strange novel of a hidden world under
neath this earth's surface. "The Coming
Race." a world where the women are
larger and stronger than the men, where
only the women may propose marriage to
the men, and where people have wings,
and a mysterious agency called vril works
It is understood that Mr. Abbott's plan
Is to flash his music by means of electrical
v:bratlon. and that ho purposes to erect a
central station at the Exposition grounds
where the music shall 'first bo generated
before It Is transmitted through pipes to
different places in the neighborhood.

Mason and Mason, in their newest
muslca.1 comedy, "Fritz and Snltz," op
ened an engagement yesterday and sup
piled an entirely .new form of enter
tainment for the present Cordray sea
son. After several weeks of melo
drama these two well-known German
comedians and their competent com
pany give us a welcome change from
thrills and sensations. V
"Fritz and Snitz," as the name might
Imply, is a nonsensical sort of funny
show. A string of ridiculous situa
tions, excruciating dialogue and gro
tesque makeups held together with
threads of commendable topical and
sentimental songs. Mason and Mason,
whom the public always enjoy, are two
very entertaining twin fun-makers. In
the present instance, they appear In
the title roles, one as an impossible
burglar and the other as an equally
impossible detective. Through a series
of typical musclal-comcdy adventures
they manage, without much effort, to
keep the audience laughing during
every minute of the two hours and a
half, which the show runs.
The scene is laid at the villa of one
of the newly rich, who .desires a titled
husband for his daughter. There are
two acts, wlfh but one stage setting,
which, by the way. Is strikingly beau
tiful. The misunderstandings which
arise from the remarkable resemblance
which each of the Masbns bears to the
other are the excuse for the plot.
The supporting company Is large and
almost without exception very good.
Frank Hayes as Hopper, the acrobatic
servant, is an eccentric comedian of
unusual ability. Joseph Conners ac
quitted himself very well as an enter
prising title broker, while Delia Stacey
and Anna Suits sang and acted most
acceptably in the leading feminine
roles. Charles Horn,, as the "easy"
millionaire, also deserves mention. The,
Mason brothers themselves need no lo
cal introduction. They are popular fa
vorites, and. their droll conception of
their types of comedy and rich German
accent, long ago endeared them to
Portland audiences. They have a num
ber of good songs, particularly their
Port Arthur ditty, set, to the tune of
"Marching Through Georgia," and the
parodies of popular songs in Dutch.
The former received five encores, which
One of the best features of the pro

BULL RUN BRIDGE READY
COST-OF REPAIRS IS BORNE BY
THREE SEPERATE INTERESTS.
Clackamas County, Portland Water
Board and Mount Hood Electric ,
Company Contribute. .
C. "W. Miller, of the Mount Hood Elec
tric Company, yesterday received a tele
phone message to the effect that the Bull
Run bridge across the Sandy, alongside
the pipe line, had been completed and
would be thrown open to the public at
once. This bridge, which was built about
13 years ago, .had become unsafe and was
ordered closed by the County Commis
sioners of Clackamas County" several
months ago and remained closed six
weeks before repairs were started. The
cost of the repairs were borne Jointly by
Clackamas .County, the Portland water
committee and the Mount Hood Electric
Company. Mr. Miller, representing the
electric company, presented a petition to
the Clackamas County Commissioners to
make the repairs, but they refused, but
consented when the expense was divided.
The company had prepared to build a
bridge across Jhe Sandy River a mile
above where the Bull Run bridge stands,
for the transportation of the machinery
for Its power plants soon to be estab
lished, and would hae proceeded with
the structure had it not entered into an
agreement to share the expense of re
building the Bull Run bridge. The present
bridge Is a span of 210 feet long, built of
steel and wood. It would not be strong
enough to carry the heavy pieces of ma
chinery to be used lh the electric plants,
but Mr. Miller" says that the timbers
of the false work, used while the bridge
was being rebuilt, have been retained,
and when the company gets ready to
transport ita machinery the present span
will be supported while the heavy pieces
are carried across.
Completion of the Bull Run "bridge Is
part of the plans of the Mount Hood
Electric Company, as It had to have fa
cilities for getting across the Sandy River
with Its machinery. Abqiit 25 men are
kept at work along the canal that will
carry the water of the Sandy River from
plant No. 1 to Nos. 2 and 3. The upper
plant, -which Is No. 1. Is six miles above
the junction of the Sandy and Bull Run
Rivers, or plant No. 2. Mr. Miller says
that at tho three plants something over
"P.OOO-horse power will be developed, and
the falls will be respectively 400,- 320 and
150 feet It Is proposed to Install plant
No. 2 first, located on the Thomas farm,
which was purchased last Summer. The
rights of wayare all secured, the" land
Is purchased and considerable work has
Mr. Miller says that the part of Clack
amas County through" which the Bull Run
pipe line extends, including the Bull Run
bridge and the holdings of the Mount
Hood Electric Company should be an
nexed to Multnomah County, and he will
co-opera to with a movement to bring
about this annexation. He says:
"The section ought to be part of Mult
nomah County. The people there do busi
ness in Portland and only go to Oregon
City, to pay taxes. Judge Ryan admitted
that he thought II ought to go to Multno
mah County, so Multnomah County could
maintain the road and bridge. There must
always be maintained a good road for the
Portland Water Company. I don't think
there would be any opposition from any
source if a bill were Introduced In the
Legislature annexing the Bull Run dis
trict to Multnomah County'
