MILDRED HOLLAND'S TRIUMPH.
Best Audience of Season Gieets '"The
Lily nnd the Pilnce."
Mlldied Holland has had ample dem
onatiatlon oL the appieiiatlon of Cai
bondale tlii'alie-goei.s of her ait and
the beautiful plays that she has pie
se'n(d heie, but It lemalned until last
night for bpr to stoic a si eat tiiumph
in the dianntic hlstmy of the town.
In her new play, "The lllv and the
I'llnte." ill-s Holland vmis gteeted by
tht l.uget and most lepresentative
audleni'i1- that lias filled the Gland, not
onl this s".isoti but In many seasons,
It was ,L. magnltlcent testimonial to the
earnest, luu d-w inking, t onselentlous
little woman who bow won her way into
Hi" wuini plan's of the hearts of tho
p.itions ol the drama In this cltv. She
was fully appreciative, too, of tlio evi
dences of Incic.ihed admiration for her
nnd hraitlly expiessed heiself to those
about betwern the acts. Tlio enthusi
asm of the audience that Indicated Its
appt eolation could not be mistaken.
Curtain calls followed each net; four
alter tho third.
"Tho Lily and the Prince," as It Is
now presented, Is, candidly, uulto an
other piece than when given in Set un
ion several weeks iiro. Like most new
plays, alter tho Mist tow presentations
It has been subjected to tho pi unlus
proefsw, mid what caused the action to
li" weak has been most jnofltably dls
cauled. The Hist and second ncis uic
notably Impinved, as well as tho last
act. The thin! act needed no atten
tion, it Is out' of the most poweitul
situations Unit could bo devised, Tlio
pleto Is aitlstictlly staged, and tlieio
weio rate pletutcH of light nnd tolor.
The veidct as liutwtcu "The Power
Dehlnd tho Throno" and "Tho Lily and
the Pi luce" will unmistakably, it issnfo
to say, lie 111 I'nvoi of tho new play.

Biooks and his paity from the United
States geological siuvey, of which D.
L. Reabuin was topographer. As far
as is known this is the 11 ret time tlio
slopes of the peak have been reached
by white men, though in 1S98 its alti
tude and molstiuo were determined
fiom a distance by Robert Muldrow, of
the same snivel.
The mountain is located near the
western lnatgln of the Alaskan l.mge,
the genetal name given to the kugo
mountain mass which sepaiates the
Yukon and Kuskokwlm wateis fiom
Cook Inlet diainage. It is a great dome
shaped mountain, formed of inti uslve
lock, toweling to an elevation of over
20,000 feet above the sea level. Though
Its summit leaches so high an altitude,
almost four miles above tide, it piob
ably is not as dltllcult of ascent as some
other Alaskan mountains, for example,
Mount St. Ellas, hecauso of Its rela
tively high snow line. As the season
was well advanced, as much of his it
inera! y had still to bo can led out, and
as it was no pait of tlio original plan,
ilr. Brooks lld not attempt to pass the
snow line, though this point was leach
ed. Now that the location und height
of the mountain have been established
by the exploration of the geological sur
vey, Wavelets und individual explmeis
will doubtless soon attempt to leach Its
summit. In anticipation of these at
tempts, ilr, Btooks Is prepaiing a de
scilptlon of the country, giving loutes
by which the mountain may bo i packed
nnd other information valuable to those
Interested in its ascent. His paper will
appear In one of the leading geogiapblo
magazines. The nioie elaboiale and
extended lepoil of the explointion will
be published by the geological siuvey
at an eaily date.
