H. K. Pierce & t'o.'s liig Production,
"In Wyoming," Here.
At the Opera House December 26,
H. E. Pierce & Co. will ofTer their
great, virile western play, "In Wy
oming." It Is from the pen of Will
ard Mack, and Is one of the most am
bitious and pretentious this talented
actor-author has thus far attempted.
For his characters Mr. Mack has
gone to a big cattle ranch near Cas
per, Wyoming, and will give us a
glimpse of life among the cowpunch
ers in the early 80s.
There Is always an indefinable
charm about the stories of the fron
tier and Mr. Mack has striven to re
tain this western charm in the char
acters in his successful play. Among
the characters in the play may be
mentioned Hob Rlcketts, a typical
young Westerner, who makes love
to the pretty young Easterner, Jen
nle Summers; Dave Dalby, the ranch
owner; Hank Jones, the neighboring
rancher, who is a regular "comic
Steve Gordon, the leader of a band
of cattle thieves and a vengeful but
repentant wooer of the charming
Jennie Summers; Bossy, Hank Jones'
daughter, who has an "affinity" In

sidewalks satisfactory ana every
other requirement of the department
fully complied with and made his re
port recommending that this city be
given free delivery. Everything is
In readiness and the new system
would be inaugurated at once, but
for the fact that the Postoffice De
partment is ouc of funds. Post
master Donnell received a letter this
week from the first assistant post
master general, stating that, while
Grants Pass is entitled to receive
free delivery It is impossible to be
gin the service until more money is
available to pay for it. An appro
priation has been asked for to cover
this expense as well as other cities in
a like condition but until congress
getB around to the postoffice appro
priation bill, nothing can be done.
6t course there is no assurance that
even when the appropriation bill is
passed that it will contain a sufficient
sum to provide for the cities which
Dave grown to such an extent in the
past year as to be entitled to delivery,
but it la probable that it will. Here
is work for our congressional dele
gation to do and as there are a num
ber of places in Oregon in the same
bx that Grants Pass is, our delega
tion to Washington will probably be
alive to their duty. Ashland has
also been favorably reported upon,
and will also have to await the appropriation.
