Ko-Ko 's Proposal in "The Mikado."
This scene between "Ko-Ko" (Direc
tor Wilson) and "Katisha," Miss Al
ice Judd, is easily one of the funniest
in all the range of comic opera situa
tions, and in the hands of competent
people, never fails to provoke the
heartiest laughter. Ko-Ko, thinking he
must appease the Mikado for neglect
ing to behead anyone for the capital
ofte'nse of flirting during one year
makes affidavit that he has beheaded
one, "Xanki-Poo." "Nanki-Poo is the
son of the Mikado, disguised as a wan
dering minstrel, who has fled his fath
er's court, because Katisha claims him

San Francisco, Aug. 5. Three im
portant developments in the bomb out
rage investigation, each considered
damaging to Warren K. Billings and
Thomas Mooney, principal suspects,
were made Known today by . Deputy
District Attorney James Brennan. As
outlined by Brennan, they follow:
1 On the night before the explos
ion, Billings said he found a note be
neath his door reading: "Deliver me
my camera at Niuteenth and Guerrero
streets." Billings went there to meet
Mooney and having failed to find him,
went to Mooney 's office. The police
believe the camera was used to .trans
port explosives and demanded to know
how Billings knew it was Mooney who
had left the note. "That is irrelev
ant" Billings replied.
S On the night of July 19 Billings
met an official of the Industrial
Workers of the World local and gave
him a note for Mooney, reading:
in marriage under her "father's law
against flirting. When Katisha learnB
of the supposed death of "Xanki
Poo' ' she demands punishment, and Ko
Ko is given the choice of winning Ka
tisha 's hand within ten minutes or of
being boiled in oil. He succeeds in
winning her by Binging the particular
story of a little bird that died of a
broken heart in the "Tit Willow"

else. Nothing becomes "very much so"

You'll get off tho transcontinental
at Portland, and pretty soon you'll ask
somebody wliut time the next train goes
down to ialein, and by that token
they'll know you're a green ensterner.
Because, my dear girl, trains don't go
down to Halem from Portland. They go
up. And when you leave Portland for
Salem you're going up in spite of any
belief you may nurturo to the contrary.
There's no use in trying to argue the
But here's what I was going to tell
you: When the gentlemanly announcer
on the train that brings you up to !Sn-
lcm tells you the end of your journey
is reached, and you step down and out,
don't faint. Brace yourself. You'll
take a slant at the depot and think you
are in Hickville, honest you will. I 'm
putting you hep to this because first
impressions are sometimes serious.
You remember when old Bill Nicker
Ben 's horse won a big piece of the mon
ey at the county fair a few years ago
old Bill felt so good about it that he
built a special stable for the animal.
The Southern Pacific depot in Salem
looks a good deal like that stable. It t
an improvement on the ordinary stable.
and that's about the best you can say
Doa't ask me why the Southern Pa
cific doesu 't build a new passenger de
pot here. I don't know. It isn't be
cause they haven't had an invitation.
After you get past the depot you'll
get along fine. Salem is a good old
burg that drowsed along for 40 or 50
years without doing anything much.
Then it woke up suddenly and went
ahead fast. It went ahead so fast that
it almost busted its boiler. Land spec
ulators flooded the east with stories of
opportunity and told of the climate and
promised things right and left, the
stories about the climate were true.
People came out from the east, slath
ers of 'em. The town gained more than
three hundred per cent in population
in 10 years, it leu toe surorunuing
country far behind. If there is anything
the matter wun eaiem tins is it. i
tell you this so you won't have to
waste time asking why so many houses
are for rent.
But just the same it's the best town
to live iu that ever was. There's a lot
of nice folks here. Quite a few of 'em
admit it frankly. The only people that
hurry are the ones who have bills, eith
er payable or receivable, and as near as
I can make ont most of 'em are pay
able. This will change after a time.
There are a great many less people liv
ing on climate now than was the case
a few months ago. Climate, even a
nice climate like this one, gets tiresome
as an article of diet.
And speaking of climate, don't you
believe all the stories you hear about
the rain. For the most part the rain
here isn't wet. : Of eonrse it's dampish,
and this year it's been sort of faithful
to its job, tut and this is honest in
