The Pollard Opera company, which
has scored such Immense success at th
Baker theatre last week, has added two
more performances to its engagement
here. These will , take place tomorrow
afternoon and evening at the Empire
theatre, and the opera chosen will be "A
. Gaiety Girl," In which they have al
ways made a decided hit. The story
opens at winDridge Barracks, the head
quarters of the Life Guards, who have
Invited some society ladies to a garden
party. Major. Barclay has taken advan
tage of the occasion to invite some gai
ety girls. It is in the mixing of society
.with stage celebrities that causes many
of the funny complications. A Jealous
' French maid tries to make it appearthat
the heroine of the piece has stolen a
diamond comb, and around that the com
plications of the piece revolve.
Beginning tomorrow afternoon, with
the usual matinee, the Baker Theatre
company will reappear at the Baker the-
' at re after a week's absence In the farce
"Jane." Here's the story of the play:
A reckless young man ha been getting
money from Ms guardian on the state
ment that he liaa an extravagant wife.
He really has no wife at all, and when
the guardian suddenly appears on a visit
It is necessary to provide a wife. He
provides himself with one, and his but
ler obligingly provides him with another.
A child Is needed, and one found for the
occasion. Another is needed and not
found, but is accounted for. The mother
of th first child comes and demands it,
but the butler, who Is the real husband
of the master's pretended wife, tires of
the game and exposes tha trick. The
butler and the maid servant are re
united, the mother recovers the child,
and a pretty girl comes forward, whom
the gay young bachelor really doe
marry, while the guardian beams, for
gives everybody and paya all the bills.
The handsome scenic production,
which will be seen at the Marquam
Grand theatre in the near future, is i
that of Hall Calne's "The Eternal City."
In which Llebler & Co. are starring Ed
ward J. Morgan with Sarah Truax. late
head of the stock company at the Grand
opera-house, Pittsburg, as leading worn-
n. There are five rcts, aggregating
eight scenes. In this drama. All are
historically accurate, being taken from
actual' places In Rome, and several are
remarkable in subject, scope and exe-'
cutlon, particularly one representing the
Vatican gardens, with 8t. Peter's In the
distance, and another' showing the
ruined Coliseum In the moonlight. From
a scenic standpoint as well as because

the Outdoor Art league is putting forth
strenuous efforts to secure the passage
through congress of what Is known as
the "Big Tree BiH." . The object of the
bill Is to reserve, as national park.
that part of California containing the
Calaveras groves. . Almost every state
In the Union has been appealed to to
add Its vote and voice for the preserva
tion of these trees. (-,--.-
The bill will be presented at ' the
present session of '' congress1 by the
united California delegation. Twice be
fore" bills have been - preaented ' and
been opposed by the public land com
mittee and passed tha senate, but failed
to reach a hearing in the house Of rep
resentatives. This would seem inexpli
cable, if in stating the matter a lltt.e
later-on the committee bad not said: .
"Forty mill and logging companies
are now at work, wholly or In part.
upon - the big tree timber."
. The same ."colored gentlemen" may
be at work as is some times employed
to purloin bills, or manipulate them, iri

The committee engaged - upon this
preservation work (of which Mrs. Lovell
White of San Francisco is chairman),
has not relied upon it own wisdom to
give reason for urging this measure,
but Incloses with other matter. the fol
lowing extract from a higher, Indeed,
the very highest authority:
"1. The dimensions of the big tree
are uneoualed.
"2. The age of the big tree makes It
the oldest living thing. ,
"J. The majestic beauty of the, big
tree Is unique and world-renowned.
"4. It now exist only in ten Isolated
gloves on slope of the Sierra Nevada
mountains, and nowhere else In tha
world. . . ,
"6. The Mariposa grove 1 today the
only one of consequence which Is com
pletely protected. ' ,
"t. Most of the scattered groves of
big trees are privately owned,' and
therefore in danger of destruction.
"7. Lumbering Is rapidly sweeping
them off; 40 mills and logging compa
nies are now at work, wholly or In part,
upon big tree timber.
"8, The southern groves show some
reproduction, through which there is
hops of perpetuating these groves; in
th northern groves the species hardly
holds its own. ".'
". The species represents a surviving
prehistoric genus of trees once growing
widely over the globe." Report by Di

Lord Lumley, the dear Mummy of the
