In the Chamber of Commerce building
at 11 o'clock this morning, John W. Con

way a certified check for 160.000 and re

Cordray and Russell, representing ths
ownership of Cordrays theatre. This
closed a deal that has been pending
for several weeks by which Sullivan and

agers, come Into possession of Port

cate to convert It Into a vaudeville
It means the dissolution of the part
nership which has aststed between John
F. Cordray and William M. Russell as
Joint owners of Cordray s for two years.
Mr. Russell will devote all of his time
to his Seattle Interests and Mr. Cordray,
In whose name ths contract with Stair
and Havlln exists, wiU took for a new
place In which to present ths same class
of attractions which st present occupy
the transferred playhouse. The .new
owners will take possession on Novem
ber 14 and will reopen it in vaudeville,
after making soma improvements, on
November Zl. There has been no defi
nite decision as to the prices of admis
sion. Possibly a higher class of at
tractions thai! Is usual here will be se
cured and the admission boosted to IS
cents, but more likely the regular dime

mod. will be the policy.
The price paid by Sullivan and Con
sldlne Is a large one, and It may take
many years to got the $80,000 back.
The bill of sale doea not Include the
ground, of course, that piece of realty
being worth probably $180,000.
The situation which confronts Mr.
Cordray, whose contract to provide a
home for the Stair and Havlln attrac
tions endures for three years mora, is
most interesting. Will it be the Em
pire? Mr. Cordray declares to the con
trary. He says he will make no bid for
that house. The Columbia cannot be
had. according to Manager Baker's em
phatic declaration this morning. 'We
are too well satisfied with the business
up there," said he. "The Columbia is
out of the question.
Keating and Flood have a signed lease
on the Baker for 10 months and it Is
hardly likely, after the great start they
have made, that those managers would
relinquish thst lease to Cordray. But
Mr. Cordray must have a house Into
which he can put the Stair and Hav

by November 14. And theatres are not
built in a fortnight. Manager Cordray
