"THE KERRY GOW"
When Arthur Cunningham first as
sumed the role of Dan O'Hara in
Joseph Murphy's celebrated play,
"The Kerry God," the one thing that
worried him most was how he was
going to successfully shoe the race
horse in full view of the audience
As he had never had any practical
expesience in this art he put himself
in the hands of a profession horse
shoer and on the opening night turn
ed out as neat a job as ever came out
of a smithy. Mr. Cunningham shows
his skill in this line at every per
formance of "The Kerry Gow" which
will be seen here shortly.
No one who has ever heard Ar
thur Cunningham sing "Our Own
United States" will ever forget the
melodious baritone voice that he
possesses, and it should be a source
of great pleasure for them to know
that they will again have the oppor
tunity of hearing him. He will ap
pear at the Astoria theatre in scenic
production of Joseph Murphy's ever
popular Irish drama, "The Kerry
Gow," in which play Mr. Cunning
ham will render several appropriate
Irish melodies on Sunday evening.
"UNCLE TOM'S CABIN."
Almost the whole world has heard
of the sad news of Queen Draga's
tragic death; her love for elegant
dresses and her wonderful assort
ment of Parisian novelties. Leon W.
Washburn, manager of the Stetson's
big "Uncle Tom's Cabin". Company,
has gone to the expense of getting the
artist's original designs of the last
superb creation made for the assassi
nated Queen of Scrvia, and has had
four of these exquisite gowns made
at a fabulous price. To give the au
dience an opportunity to see these
world-wide advertised dresses, they
will be worn by four young ladies of
the company in a novelty act during
the performance of Stetson's big
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" Company at
the Astoria Theatre Monday night,

ANOTHER 111 FINED
BUT YOUNG HENRY POUK
KALA LOOKS OLDER THAN
HE REALLY IS.
Henry Poukkala, the young man
arrested Saturday night on a charge
j of drunkenness, was fined $10 in po
j lice court yesterday afternoon, but
j because he had already passed near
I ly three days in the city prison await
:ing trial, his fine was suspended pend
ing good behavior- Judge Anderson
warned Poukkala that if he is arrest
ed again on a charge of drunkenness
conviction will mean that he will be
compelled to serve the limit in jail.
Poukkala said on the stand that
he is 20 years of age. Later he ad
mitted that he is but 19. His young
er brother was fined on a similar
charge a week or so ago. In police
court yesterday Poukkala said he had
secured his drink at his home and
then had come down town. He looks
older than he is. Police officers have
notified various saloonkeepers about
the two Poukkalas, and also about
other boys who have been in the
habit of drinking in several saloons,
L. A. Cumlins and E- Morris.
were charged with being idle and
dissolute persons; Cumlins pleaded
guilty and was given a fine with the
alternative of leaving town, and he
chosen to act upon the alternative.
Morris, on the contrary, put up a
defense, denying that he was either
idle or dissolute or otherwise guilty.
He had come here to tend bar in the
Wigwam saloon, he said, but because
he hung around the lower end of
town a police officer ran him in to
jail. Just to show that he was all
right, Morris presented a receipt
from the Bay View Hotel, showing
that he had been domiciled there
since February 15, the day of his ar
rival in the city. But the police came
back at Morris by showing that his
receipt had been "doctored" to fit the
case, and had" the proprietor of the
hotel on the stand to confirm the
fact that Morris had never been at
the hotel until after he was arrested.
The humorous part of the case seem
ed to be that, technically, the case
against Morris was lamentably weak,
but his blundering fibs on the stand
evidently convinced the court that
