Chicago, July 20. Extension of the

being planned by its bnckers today.
Stockholders in the Illinois Jockey club,

meeting, rather than an extension, on

WHAT OTHERS SAY
GEORGE WILSON'S "KO-KO"
It is difficult to mention Wilson's "Ko-Ko"' without resorting to
superlatives. From his first appearance to tho final curtain he carried
his audience with him in a whirlwind of laughter and npplnuse.
When we take into consideration that last night 's performance of
"The Mikado" was the third rendered in Marshfield inside of a few
days time, and that the audience was the largest of the three, we are
forced to the conclusion that either the opera is an exceptionally
good entertainment or else that it was rendered in professional style.
The facts of the ease are that the large crowd of last night was
drawn purely on the merits of the show, ns the novelty of seeing
home folks In the performance of the show had all worn off with the
two previous performances. Coos Bay times.

San Francisco, July 20. Anunuiieed
by Chief of Police White that the po
lice within two days would have the
persun responsible for Saturday's dy
namite outrage, iu jail, created a sensa
tion here today.
Chief. White declined to go into de
tails or to divulge nny-of the informa
tion now iu the hands of the special po
lice bomb squad on which he based his
statement, but both he and Mayor
Rolph, to whom he communicated his
plans, were optimistic over the outlook.
White declared that ho feared the de
tectives would loso their quarry if any
hint of their pinna leaked out.
Simultaneously White announced that
the total reward for tho apprehension
of the dynamiter whose bomb snuffed
out seven lives, had been brought to
$15,000 by nil offer of additionnl tl.OOO
by a man whoso name he could not re
veal. Chief White evidently has no fnith in
theories voiced in some quarters that
the dynamiting may have been the re
sult of a plot formed in eastern cities.
