On Saturday evening, May 10th, James
M. Ward, the lessee, of the Metropolitan
theatre, will make his first appearance
this season. Mr. Ward has been before
the public so long, and is so well known
to the theatre-going community, that
his name has become a household word,
he needs no praise from us. This genial
gentleman has engaged a talented com
pany to support him. In it appears the
names of that little soubrette, Carrie
Clarke Ward, and our old favorites Ar
thur Sutherland and Fred Gere. With
names like these in a dramatic company,
the public are assured of a good enter
tainment. They present a very attract
ive programme on this occasion, which
can be seen in our advertising columns.
Give them what they are deserving of,
on their opening night a full house.
Umatilla Reservation to be Thrown
Open Tor Settlement.
By private letters from Senator
Slater, the East Oregonian learns that
the Indians will be removed from the
Umatilla reservation at an early day,
except a few who have determined to
take claims and serve their tribal re
lations. The Indians will go to differ
ent reserves as best suits their inclina
tion. Sccretar Schurz who has al
most complete control of the matter,
favors their removal and no doubt it
will be done. The probabilities are
that the land will be appraised and
sold to create a fund for the support
of the Indians. Senator Slater is do
ing all in his power to have the land
opened to actual settlers, but the
chances are against him. $ -
Later. A private' telegram to
Lieut. Farrow brings the joyful news
that the order for the removal has
been made, upon what terms we are
not informed. Every one who desires
to get a claim here should prepare
with a few hundred dollars.
