DECIDEDLY the most important
event of the week in theatrical
, circles has to do with railroads,
or rather, with one particular
. railrsad, tha Southern pacific.
- That" road's failure twice during the
week to send Its trains into Portland on
schedule - time, and the consequent i
breaking into the engagements of two
. of the most important attractions of the
year, may hav important results, so
, far as , Portland's theatrical interests
' are concerned.
Early In the week Miss Henrietta
Crosman and her company, traveling
over the Southern Pacific from the
- couth, failed to reach Portland on time,
. and one .night of her engagement here
' was - lost. Then Miss Annie Russell
I and her company, traveling by the same
. route, were delayed and one night of
ner engagement also lost.
Both were Important engagements, the
financial loss to ls Russell's company
, being , especially, heavy because' of the
large numoer of people with the or
animation. The 1 management of the
Helllg. of 0uree7suffered atsoy-Tn
Because of Portland's remoteness it
naa missed the opportunity of seeing
many of tha most prominent stars and
some or the, moat important shows.
Managers are said to be reluctant about
ending expensive organisation to the
northwest becsuse of the posslbla finan
cial I oi resulting from the irregularity
,of train serrlee. The events of the
lt week may, accordingly, make them
even more timid In sending such com
" to this seeUon..-r .".
