the latter being the bill at the Star
this week. The leading part Is play
ed by Edmund Carroll, who support

this play and who makes quite as
much of the dual part as did White

In black, Is played by Guy B. Kibbe,
a Portland boy.

land for a long, long time and while

lance to "The Prisoner of Zenda,"

exchange places with the king by
his premier and other members of
the court. The correspondent en
ters Into the conspiracy with great
enthusiasm and until he gets the
hang of being a king makes some of
the most ludicrous mistakes imag
Rglnuble. In the meantime the for
mer king languishes In an asylum
and as there Is a striking resem
blance between the two men it Is not
d'.flieult for the nrrh conspirators to
