The opening of the jiew Maoonfc
Opera House Saturdy night marked
an 'era in tho annals of Marshfleld.
.Many oi us can remember when tho
ground on which tno splendid structure
stands was h plain, unvarnished mud
flat, quite remote from solid ground,
and when lm who would havo prophe
sied the thing that has come to pass
would nave leeu well laughed at.
Tho new playhouse has been describ
ed several times in these columns, and
people havo Ikjch pretty well advised
of tho fact that it was going to lie
something of which Marshfleld vould
well lie proud, yet it is sao to say that
nearly every ono of the Jargo number
who entered tho place for the first, time
Saturday evening was given u delight
ful surprise, and had all expectations
more than realized.
Seats are now provided for ovr 8,00
persons, and there is room for some
400 more. .The opera chuirs aro of tho
best quality niul most approved de
sign, an thore uro very few undesirable
seats in tho house. The fluish of the
walls and ceiling is plain, "the wood
work of pleasing color and design.
Tho stage, however, is tho triumph
of the whole. Tho addition built on
tho west sido of tho building givea
room for a stage amply large with ca
paejous wings, ond plenty of room
aliovo into which tho scenery may be
hoisted, flat. Dressing rooms and
other conveniences are unusually good,
and, in fact, this part of tho theatre
is said by those who know to 1 far su
perior to anything usually found out
side of tho larg cities.
The ptngp is well provided with scen
ery, painted by U, L. Gray whoso
work is ot tho best. Tho drop cur
tain is iv work of art very credit iblo to
tho painter. Tho asbestos curtain has
not yet arrived, but is expected short
ly. Tlio houso is well lighted with in
candescent lights under perfect control.
The exits are ample, and no five or
pauio horror can ever occur here.
The audienco on Saturday evoniug
seemed to iucludo nearly, if not quite,
all of Snirshllold's best people, as
well as tho leading citizens of North
Bend, und they certainly seemed, high- j
ly uloased with tho new playhouse.
Tho jierformanoQ of tho military
drama, "A Moxioan Romance", by the
James Keano Company was, well re
ceived. While this is probably not
the best play in the repertoiro of the
Keaue company, it gi.ve them a uhuuco
to demonstrate tho kind of work they
can do, and to pravo that Mr, Koauo
has surrounded himself with support
worthy of his talents. As Captain
Wilding, Mr. Keano had a part well
suited to his ability, and ho handled
every point with tho suro touch of tho
artist. Tony West gavo delightful
dolinoation of tho part of Major Hod

way,whilo Herbert Ashtou, as tho
Mexican, was a romarkably striking
flguro, giving in fact, that touch of
reality to tho part that mado it diffi
cult to realize that ho was not what ho
seomed. Ah tho old Negro body ser
vant, Kennody was unusually good.

an emotional actress in her handling
of tho trying part of Marquitit Tala

Tho play "Sherlock Holmes", pre
sented Monday evening, was the most
lalxrato nroduction, so far as scenery
'is concerned, thus far seen in Marsh
field, and tho play itself was a rare
treat for those who could appreciate
tho perfect finish of Mr. Ken no's pin
sentation of tho title role. Ashtou, ns
the king of the crooks, was aUo-flno',

that hour, and it was nearly 8 o'clock
before the play commenced to a full
house. Inexperience of the hands cm
ployed to hundlp tho eloliorato scenery
also 'caused delay, so that it vrm im
possible to conclude the performance
before tho water carnival.
