"'The Confessions of a Wife" is a mod
ern melodrama, with an Intense heart
etory. The play Is not as sensational as
the title appears to Indicate, and the con
fessions point a moral as well as adorn
a play. The four acts are replete with
dramatic situations, the pathos and the
comedy beinft deftly mingled by a skilled
dramatist. The tension is kept at a
high gear throughout and for acting pur

be found superior to any of the recent

This play will be especially popular with
the women and the matinees will un
doubtedly be crowded to the capacity of
the Star at each afternoon performance.
The Star Is so popular that It Is neces

"RAFFLES". AT THE HEILIG
S. Miller Kent Will Present Famous
The remarkable success that S. Miller
Kent has made in the famous play "Raf
fles, the Amateur Cracksman," which will
be the attraction at the Heilig Theater,
Fourteenth and Washington streets,, next
Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights,
November 1, 8 and 9, with a special
price matinee Saturday, is another proof
of Joseph M. Uaites' good Judgment in
the matter of casting a play.- Mr. Kent Is
easily the best young romantic actor In
the country. He is a graduate of Purdue
University, of Indiana, and was intended
by his parents for the law.
While still at college, however, young
Kent had made up his mind to go on
the stage. He made his first appearance
in New York, with Nell Burgess in
"Vim." He then played under Dion
Boucicault In "Con The Chaugran." "Col
leen Bawn," "Arrah-na-Pogue," "Carrie,"
and other of the great Boucicault suc
cesses. He then went with James O'Neill,
supporting that star in "Monte CTisto,"
"Hamlet" and the 'Doad Heart."
Mr. Kent was later engaged as the
Juvenile leading man by A. M. Palmer in
his famous stock . company at the time
when "Jim, the Penman" was the sensa
tion of the period. He supported N. C.
Goodwin In "Confusion" and "Turned
Irp." For two years he was a member of
Daniel Frohman's Lyceum Theater Stock
Company. In partnership with McKee
Rankin, Mr. Kent produced "The Can
nuck." at the Bijou Theater. New York.
For one season he played with Wilson
Barrett In London, and on his return to
America he became a member of Charles
Frohman's comedians, with whom he
stayed for several years, appearing In
"All the Comforts of Home," "Jane."
"The Foundling." "Too Much Johnson."
"The White Heather." Hearts Are
Trumps." "To Have and To Hold" and
"Aristocracy." He was in Liebler & Co.'s
production of "The Musketeers" at the
Broadway Theater, New York.
Mr. Kent then made his first starring
venture In Clyde Fitch's play "The Cow
boy and the Lady." and later in "Fisht
ing Bob." in both of which plays ho made
much reputation for himself and friends.
For the past season he has been one of
the most high-salaried vaudeville head-
liners. In a sketch called "Dorothy." It
will be seen therefore that Mr. Gaites. In
selecting Mr. Kent for the part of "Raf
fles." chose a young man whose record
and experience are the best. Seat sale
opens next Tuesday at theater.
"THE VAXDEHBII.T CUP" SOON
Famous Automobile Musical Play at
Heiliff Nc'xt Sunday.
A run of eight months at the Broadway
theater. New York, and of three months
at tho Colonial In Chicago. Is the record
of the new musical comedy. "The Van
derbllt Cup." which comes to the Heilig
next Sunday. Monday and Tuesday
nights. November 10-11-12. with the same
lavishness of detail that . distinguished
its metropolitan run.
The big cast of 60 is said to contain
nearly all of the original principals, aug
mented by a crowd of famous Broadway
beauties arrayed In the very latest styles
of motor apparel.
The musical numbers promise to be un
usually catchy and Include "My Little
Chauffeur."' "My Houseboat Beau," "The
Lisrht That Lies in Girlish Eyes" and
"Somewhere In the World."
The story is an up-to-the-minute 'por
trayal of life among the smart automobile
set and hinges upon the great Vander
bilt cup race, which is run at Mlneola,
. Long Island, every year by motorists
from all over the world. Tho dialogue
is said to he delightfully clever, and
much satire is indulged in at the ex
pense of those auto enthusiasts who rush
about the continent in their costly tour
ing cars. Barny oldfleld's great Idea, the
real motor on the stage, is a "big" fea
ture of the piece. Two 90-horsepower
racing machines, running at high speed,
crash on the stage, amid all the j-oar
dust and excitement of a real race, and
it Is said, audiences fairly get out-of their
chairs to see 'the finish. Seat sale opens
next Friday, November 8. at the theater.
AX AXTHOXY HOPE PLAY
"The Adventure or Lady Ursula" to
Bo Given by Baker Company.
"'The Adventure of the Lady Ursula"
Is not so well known in Portland as
some others of Anthony Hope's works,
but it is one of his best and most suc
cessful plays. It contains more de
lightful comedy than the others and
nothing of the melodramatic. The
period of the play is about 1760 and the
scenes are laid In Old England. It
was originally produced by Miss Vir
ginia Harned and has -since been used
by. Henry Miller and Margaret Angltn.
as"- well as Florence Roberts. This
will be the first Portland presentation
of the piece at popular prices, and it
fits the Baker company like a glove,
also pleasing the majority of Its
patrons, being just the sort of play
they care for above .all others. It
will open next 'Sunday, November 10.

Kirk-La Slielle's Production of Paul
Armstrong's Drama Coming.
The Klrke La Shelle production of Paul
Armstrong's comedy gem, "The Heir to
the Hoorah," comes to the Heilig theater
The majority of the theater-going public
are familiar with this charming story of
life in a Western mining camp, with its
fearless type of men who mined for gold
In the pioneer West, its strong emotions,
its delicious humor and the absorbing
love of a man for his wife.
Mr. Armstrong's play Is pleasantly re
mindful of "The Virginian." "Arizona"
and "A Texas Steer," but it has a new
and original plot of its own, making it
one of the best liked products of -the
stage of this country. The cast Is said
to be 'an admirable one, and includes
many notable players, among whom are
Frank . Monroe. Helene Lackaye, Ralph
Dean, Ben S. Higglns, Harry Crosby. H.

one that touches the heart and rouses
the sympathies of the spectator, while
its natural scenes of delicious comedy
keep an audience In a ripple of laughter.
The Halloween ' games and pumpkin
dance make every one feel young and
gay with the actors upon the scene, and

MISS ISABEL IRVIXG.
Appears at Ike Marquam Soon In
Clyde Fitch Play.
One of the best of the Liebler &
To. attractions. Miss Isabel Irving, in
tho Clyde. Fitch play, "The Girl Who
Ins Everything," will be the attrac
tion at the Marquam Grand, theater In
the very near future. A Liehier attrac
tion, a Fitch play and a favorite .star
is a strong compound with whlcll to
pry open the' early theatrical season.
The play is best described as a comedy-drama.
The soene is New York
the time, the present; and among the
characters are two children whom Mr.
Fitch uses, especially in. their relations
to their elders, with much the same
skill that he showed with the young
sters In "Her Only Way." They are
motherless, and Sylvia, their aunt,
mothers them. Their father, worthless
and unscrupulous, has devised a scheme
to trick even his own children out of
the-fortune that their mother has left
them. Sylvia seeks to frustrate him.
He retaliates by still another trick,
that places the young lawyer for whom
she cares in the light of a sordid fortune-hunter.
The dialogue is In the
stylo for which Clyde Fitch is noted,
bright, snappy and epigrammatic The
situations are cleverly drawn, and the
action is rapid.

EN M. JEROME, the young com
poser who will be in Portland to
direct the music of "The Yankee Re
gent," one of his most ambitious musi
cal productions, has come rapidly to
the front in recent years in the musical
comedy world. "The Royal Chef" was
one of Mr. Jerome's first big successes,
and after that came "The Isle of Spice,"
which materially added to his fame and
vogue, and then' . came "The Yankee
Regent," his most ambitious effort,
which has been meeting with much
success on the Pacific Coast this Kail.
The music of 'The Yankee Regent"
has been pronounced of a very high
grade by critics. There are several
concerted numbers that border on
grand opera, and this Is especially true
of the finale of the first act. There
are numerous lighter numbers In this

the biggest acrobatic cycling act ever put
on by. a local- vaudeville house. The El

By way of a second topnotcher the
acrobatic billiard table act of the Wolff
brothers is offered. Nothing of the kind
has ever before been presented here. The
Wolffs have been making the biggest kind
of a hit. throughout Eastern circuits. It
is new, original, clever and funpy.

The Wail o! An Advance
-What the Man Ahead of the Show
'Has to Meet and Why HI Bed
Is Not One of Roses.
By Will Reed Dunroy, of the Yankee Regent
THERE Is a certain dramatic critic in
a certain city in America who has
the legend, "Advance Agents Annoy Me,"
hanging above his' desk. This man was an
agent himself once, at that, too, but he
has forgotten the days when he tried
every way imaginable to break into the
news columns with "stuff" about his
stars, and he now looks with contempt
upon the poor "praise spreaders" who
are trying to make a living as best they
may. And this man is only a sample,
, for their are hundreds of editors, critics
and newspaper men who look upon the
average press agent, or advance man, as
an unmitigated nuisance, and treat him
But the reason for this attitude, to me,
at least, is incomprehensible. Now that
the day of the noisy and blatant advance
man is over, it seems to me that the
evangels of coming attractions deserve
and should receive better treatment.
These men are simply paving the way
for . their attractions. They come on
ahead, and . they give the newspapers
their advertising copy and Information of
what is to follow. There are some, of
course, who brag and blow and bluster,
but theresare others,-and they are grow
ing In number, who come in and go
about their business quietly and with as
little bluff and bluster as any othes men
who arrive in the city to sell something.
Taking for granted, then, that the agent
Is of the newer vintage and of the
quieter sort, it Is difficult to see why he
Should be considered a nuisance.
"Oh, but he Is always wanting to break
into the newspapers," says some one.
Well, what if he does? He usually has
something of a news nature to say if he
does. Say that some big attraction is
piece, also, that are whistleable, and
which always are sure of a warm wel
come from audiences. Mr. Jerome is
also well known in the vaudeville
field.! as h has several very elaborate
musical sketches on the road. These
have been designated tabloid musical
comedies, and have not only brought
the brilliant young composer much
fame, but the royalties are making
hlnv rich. Mr.' Jerome now has In
preparation a new score which he feels
will be his masterpiece. In this he
will endeavor to get as near the old
school of comic opera as possible, us
ing a new and modern theme as a
Mr. Jerqme is a constant and hard
student, and his work "is.marked by a
freshness of treatment and an origi
nality that is both unique and refresh
ing In these days of hackneyed scores.
Many have gone two.
coming to Portland for a run. There is
naturally great curiosity among the peo
ple to know the nature of the show.
There are some pieces with mystifying
titles and It is impossible to tell from
their names whether they are musical
comedies, farces or melodramas. Now the
agent comes on ahead and he informs the
dramatic critic, the Sunday editor or the
city editor, as the case may be, and the
great public reads the matter with avid
ity. It Is a matter of news. To be sure.
In many cases the editors give up the
space to such matters but grudgingly, and
in doing so give the agent to understand
that he Is obtaining a great favor.
There is no doubt in my 1 mind at all
but that theatrical news Is Tead by a far
greater proportion of the population of
Portland than is the sporting news. But,
notwithstanding this, page after page is
given over to sports every day in the
week. .while theatrical matters gain pmail
space during the .week and are only al
lowed some latitude on Sunday. The av
erage baseball fan is a noisy fellow. He
reads the sporting news and he makes a
big noise over it. But how many women
read the sporting pages of a newspaper?
How many female fans are there in Port
land? The bleachers are not filled with
women when a big game is going on, but
every man in -town who can get away by
hook or crook is there. This makes sports
look important, but half of the population
has no Interest whatever In baseball or
football, while all the population is Inter
ested all the time in the theaters. Here
In Portland, with eight theaters running
nearly the whole year around, It Is safe
to say that 6000 people go to the theater
nearly every night in the year. Take that
for seven nights in the week and it makes
35,000 people each week. Counted up for a
year. It makes a vast army of people.
Compared with this, how much smaller
are the figures for baseball and football,
and yet such things get twice and three
times the space, and it Is given cheerfully.
Men are hired at high salaries to furnish
this sort of news. There are atl least two
newspapers In Chicago that - pay their
baseball cartoonists J5000 a year, but they
pay no such sum for theatrical cartoon
ists, although more than three, times the
number of people attend the Chicago the
aters than go to the ball parks.
Take it from the- advertising stand
point also. The theatrical advertise
ments are in the newspaper every day in
the year. Baseball and football adver
tisements are but periodical. . The the
ater appeals to the old, -the middle-aged,
the young. It appeals to men. women
and children, while the sporting pages
appeal to men only, with perhaps a few
boys, but It is very seldom that you see
a woman looking for the sporting page,
as she rides down town in yie streetcar.
More than likely she will be looking for
the theatrical news. For example, some
great star is to i isit Portland. This star
Is a woman. She will wear some stunning-
gowns. There Is not a woman in
the city but who would fairly revel In
an accurate description of that creation.
What if the newspaper would reproduce
a picture of that star in her handsome
gown and in colors in the Sunday supple
ment? Would It not interest at least
half of the population of Portland? And
yet to suggest such a thing to the aver
age Sunday editor would make him gasp
for breath. He would say the pre?s
agent was boosting his own game too
much, and yet it seems to me. at least,
that such a feature would make a very
strong appeal fo half of the readers of
Sunday newspapers, and that Is. all the
sporting page can possibly do.
Time has indeed gone by for the old
fashioned "touting" that was formerly
done by advance agents, but there is still
a big .demand for legitimate news of the
theaters and of attractions that are to
come during the season, and newspaper
men are coming more and more to real
ize that theatrical news 1 of value. It
Is also a noticeable fact that the great
army of advance men who traverse the
country Is more and-'' more being made
up of newspaper men. There is scarcely
a man on the road today but who has
held a position on a newspaper some time
in his life and this man knows the value
of publicity and knows what is legitimate
publicity and what is' not. Advance men
are always looking for opportunities to
break into print, but they do not ask
for the Impossible. When they go to the
newspapers, they know they must have
something to offer. The city editor will
not load up his columns, with dead mat
ter. If the agent has a live news Item,
he is nearly always sure of a ready ear,
and the dramatic critic who finds an
agent with a new idea, is often -open to
conviction. But it still remains that the
agent Is considered a bore in some quar
ters, and his name is In bad odor, but
for. the life of me I cannot see why. Per
haps in another generation, when the
last echo of the last blatant vciee of the
old school agent has - faded away Into
silence, the advance agent will come into
his own, and be received with favor and
Of course there are many untruthful
press agents, and It was only recently
that Channing Pollock stirred up a per
fect hornets' nest in the East by an ar
ticle in which he said that all press
agents were liars. A host of good fel
lows who love the truth took up the
matter, and they made It pretty lively
for Mr. Pollock, and he has doubtless
wished many times since , that he had
not made the assertion. There was-' a
time when the press agent could He and
get away with It. but that day is over.
The agent does his work in these days,
and then goes on,' atid his show follows
to make good, or bad. as the case may
be. Time was when the agent made the
Bhow. It is all different now. It is up
to the show to make good after the agent
has done his duty, and no amount of pub
licity will make a success out of a fail
ure, in these days, and this Is particularly
true of the raciflc Coast and of Portland,
If all Reports are true.
It is also true that the newspapers of
Portland are more generous to the ad
vance man- than are many others. They
treat him with more consideration, and
give him more space, and this wail of
the press agent is directed, not so much
at Portland and Portland newspapers, as
it is to the large majority of newspapers
scattered over the length and breadth of
this great country.
