The whole theatre was gone over and

"Such a fire as occurred . in the Iro.
quois theatre .would not be pesslble in
any theatre in Portland. - In the niifat
place, all our theatres here are so con
structed that if the ' lights were blown
out by' an explosion of' any character,
enough light would penetrate from, the
outside to permit . the people to ? see
their , way to the exits. In the next
place, there is no possibility of an ex
plosion of gaa. tanks, as gas Is ; not
used to produce the calcium effects, that'
method having been supplanted by vi-
rect current : electricity. "i':1!' ''! ::
."Under the old system of using, gas
for calcium- effects, . the gas was de
livered in tanks,' two tanks 'being re
quired for each lamp or burner. Theso
tanks were being, used In the Iroquois
theatre on a swinging bridge above the
stage, out of sight of the : audience
This gas , Is highly ; explosive, . and -I

of vogue in the West, and-1 would not

he was unpopular. They gave no spe

council went to the mayor and expressed
a lack of confidence in Chief Hunt. The
