price for the play will be 15, 25
and 35 cents and the fact that the

Citizens' League Holds Important
The Benton duuty Citizens'
League met in regular monthly
session Tuesday evening, Nov. 7,
at the City Hall. The aueudince
was unusually good aud much in
terest manifested in the various
matters that came up for the at
tention of that body.
In respect to the matter ot tele
phone, telegraph and electric
light poles, their . removal from
Main street and placed in the al
leys, also that they be painted,
etc., it was the sentiment of those
present at the meeting that it
would be wise to confer with the
companies owning said poles be
fore taking definite action.
The matter of having all trees
cut down and removed from Main
street was considered.
It was the sentiment of the
league that all wooden or other
kind of awnings that are support
ed by posts extending to the
street or sidewalk, be condemned
and removed, as well as such
otherawningsas maybe unsightly.
In the matter ot signs it was
advocated that they be regulated
by city ordinance that when they
extend over sidewalks thev be
limited in size, etc.
In relation to the cement walk
ordinance there was considerable
discussion. It was advocated
that the limits be considerably ex
tended, both north and south
long Main street and to some
istance west of the present
Old, useless and unsightly
buildings along Main street were
discussed and it was the sense of
the meeting that they be con-j
demned and torn down.
The matter of a uniform street
grade, the extension of the pres
ent fire limits, the swinsinar of
gates over publie walks were sub
jects for discussion.
When it came to consideration
of the plan of the National Good
Roads Association in regard to
widening the space or lawn on
the outside of each sidewalk so as
to make the traveled part of the
streets narrower and beautify their
borders, there was general approv-
01 the plan and it will be
heartily supported by the league
members if active steps along
this line come about in the future.
There were numerous other
matters before the meeting aud all
received attentioa. The work
prosecuted occupied the league
until about n o'clock, and from
this it is but natural to figure that
there was something doing.
The matter of receiving and en
tertaining the body of business
men of Poitland on their" arrival
n this city was discussed and
steps taken to that end. This
delegation from Portland will be
here on the 17th inst., arriving
at noon and only remaining for
The various matters discussed
and passed upon by the league as
deserving of endorsement will be
put in proper form before the city
council for the. action of that
body. Such matters as are ap
proved by the "city dads" will
be supported by ordinances aha
will then become laws.

All are interested in witnessing
the production of a play that
deals with Western life, because
it is so well understood here, and
so often misrepresented by
dramatists and writers; so a com
bination of scenes faithfully pre
sented and enacted causes "A
Broken Heart", to be popular
wherever it is seen.
MissEsther Rujaero, who wrote
the play, made an especial study
of the scenes and the people
whom she wove into the plot of
her story,- so there is not the
least exaggeration in the entire
play. Much can be expected, in
its presentation and nowhere has
anyone been " disappointed. It
will be seen at the opera house
next Monday night.
