the Heilig Theater three nights and matinee commencing Thursday,

Williams made his debut as a comedian in San Francisco in 1891
with Lenv Johnson's minstrels. The following year he. in connection
with Walker, made their New York debut at Koster- & Blal's Music

formed in the halls of London and Paris. When they returned to
America the team of Williams & Walker toured the country for sev
eral seasons in musical comedies. Williams is under contract with
F. Ziegfeld. Jr.. for a number of years, and is slated to appear in the
New "Ziegfeld Follies." which will open in New York immediately

On the third of April In tne Biaca

exchanged shots at long range with

Turkish flag, having been renamed tne

by Congress to defray the cost of river
and harbor improvements for the 15
months beginning April 1, the Secre
tary of War dealt more generously
with the Columbia River and the
Northwest generally than with other
sections of the country. While the to
tal amount allotted. $3,926,176, is
slightly more than half a million less
than the amounts that would have been
available had Congress passed the
rivers and harbors bill in the form in
which it was reported to the Senate.
this cut is relatively email, and to a
numDer of the Northwestern projects
were allotted the full amounts pro
vided in the . rivers and harbors bill
as it failed.
That $1,500,000 should have, been al
lotted to continue work at the mouth
of the Columbia River is a little sur
prising, in view of the statement made
to the House rivers and harbors com
mittee that $1,350,000 would be ample
ior mat project, but this increase is
due to a subsequent recommendation
of the Army engineers, who have
evinced a desire to rush work on the
north jetty and complete it at the
earliest practicable date.
One Big Item Eliminated.
The only Important item eliminated
irom tne allottment made by Secre
tary Garrison was for the Celilo Ca
nal, but the $80,000 carried for the
rivers and harbors bill was intended
to put on the finishing touches, and
the fact that the canal is serviceable
without this expenditure induced the
Secretary of War to "allow this work
to be deferred a year.

appropriated is $645,500, but It is noted
that one item is included in the allot
ment that was not included in the river
and harbor bill, the waterway connect
ing Port Townsend Bay with Oak Bay,
an old project that has long been over
looked by Congress.
It is explained , by the War Depart
ment that one reason for the unusu
ally liberal allotments for the projects
in the Northwest was the manifest in
terest of local communities in theii
waterways, and their willingness to
contribute a part of the cost of Improvement.
It is interesting to note that the al
lotment made for the mouth of the Co
lumbia is the largest allotment made
for any single project save the Ohio
River and the appropriation for the
Mississippi River Commission, both
projects covering a long stretch of the
Mississippi and its principal tributary.
