it has been decided to endeavor, after the

for another wing on the Fifth-street side

to the wing now being constructed. Sen

Senator Fulton Is personally impressed
with the idea of adding another wing to
the Portland Postofflce, though perfectly

secure the necessary appropriation for
this purpose If the business interests of
Portland desire it. While he thinks it Im

"Camille" has had many interpreters
yet none more sincere and convincing than

This Miss Countiss does as "Camille."
The achievement is indeed a noteworthy
one. Six curtain calls at the end of a
heavy act reflect the extreme enthusiasm
of the Columbia audiences regarding the
heroine of this week's play.
A more impressive or passionate "Ar

to find. Mr. Bernard's "Count de Var

The last performance of the Oriental

which began an engagement of two nights
at the Marquam Grand Theater last night,
will be given this evening at S:15 o'clock.
The music is excellent, the scenery pictur
esque, the company good, making an en
tertainment well worth seeing.
"Black Patti" at the Empire.
Black Patti and her company of singers
and dancers entertained an audience at
the Empire last evening which crowded
that theater to the very walls. The col
ored prima donna is not a stranger to
Portland, but It seems as though she
increases her popularity each time she
appears here. She was in excellent voice

which took the house by storm. Among
them was "Suwanee River." artistically
rendered by the star and an Invisible
chorus of -unusual strength. The "Rlgo

Green and Charles Bougia. The 'curtain
came down on the second-act finale or
Strauss "Queen's Lace Handkerchief."
As a whole. Nthe music was pretty and
the chorus, numbering upward of S3' peo

Among the individual hits were James
Crosby's "When Coons Have a .Dream

Forcey In "The Maid of' Timbuctdo."
"Dollie" by James Worles and the com

The original Swedish-American comedy,
"Yon Tonson." after which numerous Imi
tations have been patterned, only to come
to a grievous end after one season of vain
struggling, will be seen at the Empire
Theater four nights starting next Sunday
matinee. There will be a special matinee
Monday, December 2. which is a legal
holiday. For over 13 years "Yon Tonson"
has been played through this country and
wherever it has been presented, whether
in Swedish or American communities,
whether In the East, West, the North or
tho South, in mountains or cities on the
plains, it has never failed to please all
classes of theater-goers. David Bratt
strom. a young and clever actor, who was
brought over from his study In Sweden
especially to play the part of "Yon Ton
son" this season, has already met with so
much success that he Is classed as the
only man to play the character and the
only worthy successor of Gus Heege, the
author of the famous play. The former
clever singing and dancing features are
again retained and they succeed in fur
nishing the necessary comedy element to
the melodramatic features of the per;
Christmas Matinee at the Columbia.
Scats go on sale this, morning for the
special Christmas matinee, Monday, De
cember 26. at the Columbia. The play will
be 'The Charity Ball." which is not only
most appropriate for the Christmas sea
son, but also one of the most beautiful
plays ever written.
"The Princess Chic" Tomorrow.
Seats are now selling for tho operatic
comedy success 'The Princess Chic,"
which comes to the Marquam Theater to
morrow (Thursday). Friday and Saturday
nights, December 22, 23 and 24, with a spe
cial price matinee Saturday. The man
agement has provided a large and efficient
chorus, consisting of a bevy of pretty
girls who look well in the charming cos
tumes they wear, and who can also sing.
The story of "Princess Chic" takes us
back to the times of Charles the Bold, of
Burgundy, and Mr. La Shelle has put the
story to us In a prettily romantic and
.charmingly Interesting manner. Tho mu
sic, composed by the well-known Julian
Edwards, Is a guarantee that it will be of
the highest order, as many capable and
prominent critics have said that this was
his most pretentious effort. The entire
production is one of considerable magni
tude, and Is said to have cost the manage
ment In the neighborhood of 520,000.

"A Night In Japan."
After General Bunemon Nii and his
troupe of 15 jiu-jitsu artists have given
their performance at the Marquam Grand
on the night of December 29. It Is safe to
predict that this Japanese art of attack
and defense will be taken up by the Port
land people, just as President Roosevelt
haa taken it up at the;Whlte House. The
President became Interested in Jiu-jitsu
through General Wood, who was sent to
Japan to study the science of Jiu-jitsu for
the purpose of Introducing It at West
Point and at the Naval Academy. Gen
eral Wood's report was favorable, and
jiu-jitsu teachers will be Installed to teach
tfye future Generals and naval command
ers of our country this wonderful art a
science which pits brains and agility
against brute strength. General Nil and
his 15 artists, with the assistance of Pro
fessor RIngler, who will explain Jiu-jitsu,
promise that "A Night in Japan" will be
one of the best evening's entertainments
given this season.

make her debut before a Portland audi
ence. In the East she played considerably

AT THE VAuDEVLLLE THEATERS
Lyric's Christmas Bill.
This week is an unusually important one
at the Lyric for the reason, that an espe
cially arranged programme has been pre
pared for the holiday season. It includes
a -number of the best and most entertain
ing acts in vaudeville and presents a va
riety wide enough to please any taste no,
matter in what direction it may tend,
just so it Is for the best and mo3t meri
torious. The Sisters Kelsey arc alone
worth the price of admission and their
eccentric singing- afar dancing has already
made them the most popular soubrettes
ever appearing in Portland. There are
many others equally as good, and the f-n-tire
bill Is so uniformly excellent that no
one can fall to be pleased.
Brilliant Acts at the Star.
Two acts at the Slar Theater this week
stand in bold relief Daisy Harcourt. the
London music-hall singer, and the knife
throwing of Zat Zam and Mowra. Five
encores marked one of Miss Harcourt's
appearances last evening.- Cold chills
chase up and down the spines of the audi
ences when Zat Zam and Xowra get to
work. Mowra is a beautiful girl with a
mass of hair which reaches to her walpt.
Her partner places- her against a wooden
platform about the size of a door and
then throws heavy glittering knives all
around her. The remaining acts of a
really excellent programme are the Mex
ican quintet, Jones and Weaver, J. W.
Clifford. Herbert, the frog man; Whelan
and Holmes. In their Chinese act; illus
trated songs and the bioscope.
The Grand's Great Show.
The bill this week is the strongest one
yet presented by the Grand Theater. No
such act as that of Eldrldge, the sand
picture man, has ever been seen In this
city before. The Athen-WIlson-Clark.
Comedy Company. In "Who's Brown?"
kept the audience in a continual roar.
Flood and Hayes present an extraordi
narily neat turn In their barrel and egg
tricks. These and seven other great num
bers are on the programme, and the of
fering is a mighty one. The picture, "The
Suburbanite," though only a picture, al
most speaks, it Is so real, and It brings
down the house in an unbroken wave of
The Arcade's Great Acts.
If little Fern Hart Is not the wonder of
the century on the trapeze, she Is cer
tainly the most marvelous performer of 7
years of age in America, With Irene
Franklin, the great cornetjst, she tops' a
bill of surpassing excellence. An Inter
national team of vaudeville performers
are Kitchle and Richards, Japanese and
American, whose acrobatic and head-to-head
balancing work possesses many
novel features. Casper and Jones, two
dusky fun-makers, are the comic stars of
the bill, and the 10 minutes that they
are on the stage suffices to put the audi
ence In a stato of weakness from ex
cessive laughter. A "Smart Set" sketch
is presented by the Falrchllds. while Gene
vieve Ard-ill continues to increase in popu
larity as a singer of illustrated songs.
Celebrities at Bijou.
George Washington walked across
the Bijou stage yesterday. Bismarck
was there, toe, and so vrts Gladstone.
In reality, it was Westin, that clever
man of many faces. He has an act that
borders on the uncanny. Sallee Ran
dall, the runaway girl from "The Run
aways" has a danco that shows what
that pretty soubrette can do.
Holidays at the Baker.
For the holiday season the Baker has
arranged a feature bill which has never
been equaled in this city. Week by week
the Baker has steadily maintained its po
sition aa the leading vaudeville house and
this week, on the eve of Christmas, it is
proud to offer Its patrons the best pro
gramme In its history- Don't fall to visit
this favorite place of amusement during
the Joyful week upon which we have en
tered so auspiciously. The acts are all
good, so good that in fairness to the oth
ers no one can be said to lead. They are
all top-liners and if you don't believe it,
pay a visit to the Baker and be convinced.
That Is all we ask. The evidence of your
own sense after seeing one of the Baker
performances will be good enough.
