THE SCRANTON TRIBUNH-TUESDAY, AUGUST 2G, 1902.
BIO CROWD PRESENT IN DIXIE
Public Was Much Pleased with the
Appearance of the Houso and the
Character of tlio Entertainment.
Academy of Music Crowded to the
Doors by the Opening Performance,
arand Opera at'tho Lyceum Stage
Scranton's new vaudeville house, Hie
Dixie theater, wus opened last night,
ami the opening wus auspicious In
GVory respect. The slr.o mid cluirnctcr
of the ulitllcncc, mid the excellence of
the performance augured well for both
the inmiugonient and the nmliscinent
luvlng public. Mr. Dixie evidenced that
he knows what Scranton has been
wanting, and the audience gave every
Indication thut It appreciated his suc
cessful endeavor to 1111 that want. It
Is a surety that the now venture Is a
Exclamations of surprise and delight
wore heard from those who had their
llrst glimpse of the handsome interior.
The tiuusforinatlon that the dingy old
armory underwent was unanimously
voted to bo something marvelous.
Everyone expected to see something
pretty. Few, If any, there were who
did not have their expectations more
One of the most representative au
diences that could possibly be assem
bled at a Scranton theater at this sea
son of the year was In attendance.
U'hut It was also n most thoroughly
pleased audience was uttested by en
thusiastic applause accorded the dif
ferent numbers, and particularly the
veritable ovation tendered Mr. Dixie
when he appeared during an Intermis
sion to speak his gratitude for the
patronage of the opening night, and
tell something of his plans for conduct
ing the theater.
The house, lie said, is to be a home
of clean, high-class vaudeville only. No
net will be presented that even bor
ders on the suggestive, and none but
the best that the vaudeville world has
to offer will be booked. His statement
that the acts, above all things, must
be clean, was greeted with a burst of
.applause which betokened most elo
quently that that was what Scranton
The opening night performance, while
really excellent, was not the best by
any means that the house proposes to
give. Many or the "top-liners" of the
vaudeville stage have not, as yet,
gotten back Into harness after the sum
mer vacation, and the most of those
who have gotten back are engaged in
the metropolitan houses that have had
early openings. Later in the season the
best of these will come this way.
The performers last night were Miss
Hertie Fowler, monologuist and mimic;
SIsson and 'Wallace, sketch artists;
Snyder and Buckley, musicians and
comedians; Grant and Grant, colored
song and dance artists; McNamee, clay
modeler; Patterson brothers, horizontal
bar experts, and Charles Grapewin's
Miss Fowler, who is a prime favorite
here, has a number of good new stories
and imitations. SIsson and Wallace In
troduced a novelty that made a big hit.
The man sings a descriptive comic
song, while the woman, hiding behind
his back and projecting her arms
underneath his, makes the appropri
ate gestures.. The laughter provoked by
the comic illusion almost continuously
drowns the words of the song. Snyder
and Buckley succeed in doing a posi
tively new line of comedy accompani
ment to a musical act, and they do It
well. The others are all .iust a bit
better than what has been wont to
come this wav.
The same show, will continue for the
whole week. The matinees begin at 2.30
and the evening performances at 8.15.
A nursery in which children can romp
nround, under the care of a nurse, dur
ing the matinee, is one of the special
features of the house.
Opening of Academy of Music.
The Academy of Music opened its
doors for the season last night with an
audience that tested the capacity of the
house In every part. During the sum
mer the theatre has been renovated and
niightened, and presented a very at
tractive appearance last night. One of
the notable features of the house Is the
new fire wall, to which reference is
made In another column, and which
makes It well-nigh impossible for a lire
to get from the stage into the audi
torium. The popularity of the Academy is
demonstrated by the fact that before 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon a dozen or

eocinted' with womanhood seem to be
, almost a miracle. While in general no
woman rebels against what sue regards
as a natural necessity there is no woman
who would not gladly be Tree from this
recurring period of pain.

more boys were gathered In front of
the Academy, being determined to have
the choice scuts of the house When the
"The King of Detectives" wus the
play presented lust night by the Jucobs
Stock company, which will bo ut the
Academy all of this week. It Is n play
of thrilling Interest and was presented
In a manner that stumps the Jacobs
compnny as one of the best of the rep
ertoire companies thut visit tills city.
The leading roles were assumed by
Carl Anthony, Charles W. Guthrie,
Carol Michael, Mary Asnulth, Maud
Brookmun and Elsie Graham.
Incidental to the play the Llllltputlan
trio, Philip Muher, Carl Michael mid
Maud Brookman, presented specialties
that were extremely entertaining nnd
won the warm approbation of the audi
ence. Tills afternoon the company will re
peat last night's play, and tonight "A
Romance of Coon Hollow" will be the
Grand Opera nt Lyceum.
A large audience wns present nt the
Lyceum theatre last night to witness
one of the most unique performances
ever given nt that popular playhouse.
The People's Opera company, of New
York, produced a grand opera, entitled
"Alexander, the Crown Prince of
Jerusalem," written by Jewish nuthors,
acted by a Jewish company, with a tal
ented Jewish actor as the star, and pro
duced in a tongue unfamiliar to many
of the audience, wns the attraction,
and judging from the applause it was
a very successful one.
A mixture of German nnd the Hebrew
was fluently used by the actors. The
play was stuged handsomely, the
scenery and costuming speaking vol
umes for the care which had been spent
on the production.
The music was original and pleas
ing, and the various roles of the play
were In the hands of competent actors.
B. Thomashefsky, who essayed the
title role, and is one of the best known
Hebrew actors on the American stage.
is possessed of a pleasing presence, a
good voice and natural dramatic abll
Ity. He scored a big hit last night.
The role of Menachem was in the
competent hands of Mr. Young, nnd
Mr. Kasten did well In the comedy role
of Naptul. Miss Young, a pretty sou
brette, played a clever opposite to Nan-
tul, as Lllpe, and Mrs. Abramowiteh
was stately and Imposing as the queen.
Miss Lobel enacted the role of Nome,
whose love with Alexander forms the
central theme of the opera.
Mr. Gold was the villainous Aehemnz,
through whose machinations arise the
difficulties which separate the lovers
and cause estrangement after estrange
ment through three long acts.
The Lyceum presented a spick and
span appearance, as the result of a
thorough overhauling, and the ushers
and theatre attendants bustled around.
In spotless uniforms, looking as neat
and dapper as the theatre appeared
fresh and renovated,
Mabel Taliaferro will be In the company
of J. E. Dodson and Annie Irish,

number of stocks. Tho speculation was
clearly under tlio saino auspices as that
which originated In Southern Pacific last
week mid which was predicated upon
the return to tho street of it well-known
speculative lender. Tho boldness nnd the
dnsh of today's operations wero Indica
tive of tho personal direction of this
leader. Tho early atlvtmco In Southern

very heavy prollt-taklng, which complete
