Attractions at the
Phelan Opera House
The decision of the supreme court of
Nebraska declaims unconstitutional
the law passed by the legislatme last
winter creating a state normal school
board, continues in office the old state
board of education, of which Prof, D.
W. Hayes of Alliance is a member. In
response to a telegram received by him
Tuesday, he left on that day for Lin
coln, where he attended a meeting of
the State Board of Education yester
day. Today the board has a meeting
at Wayne, to take action in regard to
the Wayne normal school. It is im
possible at the tune of going to press
with this issue of The Herald to learn
just when the board will take up the
matter of locating the northwest Ne
braska normal school, but we suppose
that will be done without further delay.
The question of authority to locate the
same was referred to Attorney General
Thompson, whose opinion, as far as we
can learn, seems to be favorable.
A peculiar feature of the situation is,
that while several townB filed applica
tions with the defunct normal school
board for the northwest Nebraska state
normal school, Alliance was the only
town to file such an application with
the state board of education, which is
the one sustained by the Supreme
Death of John A. Wilson.
The reputation acquired by the Phe
lan Opera House for presenting high
class plays this season wiU be fully
sustained in the presentation of this
beautiful drama, "In Wyoming," next
Monday night, November 22. This
play js taken from real life on the
plains of Wyoming and is constructed
after the order of the "Virginian."
There is the lack of the usual noisy
and rough acting iu ranch plays in this
play, "In Wyoming," for there is not
one shot fired iu the performance and
everything is of a genuine refined or
der appealing to that class of playgo
ers who enjoy good acting and humor
and comedy of a refined order. Those
acquainted with the "Virginian" will
thoroughly enjoy the pcrjormance "Iu
Wyoming" and for the sake of encour
agement and continuance of legitimate
and high-class plays it is hoped that a
ltbctal patronage will be accorded "la
Wyoming" next Monday night, Novem
ber 22. Prices wilt be reserved seats,
75 cents and $1. Gallery, 50 cents.
After a sickness of little more than a
week's duration, John A. Wilson suc
cumbed to the inevitable on Tuesday
of this week, and the funeral is being
held today at Fairview church, inter
ment at Greenwood cemetery, Rev. J.
L. Vallow in charge of the obsequies.
Deceased was born September 23,
1850, hence was 50 years, 1 mouth and
24 days of age at the time of his death.
He was one of the pioneers of this
country, having come to Box Butte
county iu 1885. He was industrious
and in recent years gave much atten
tion to inventions, some of which were
valuable, one in particular it is claimed
is worth many thousands of dollars;
but the relentless hand of death cut
him down when he was about to reap
the fruit of much hard work.
He was well respected by his neigh
bors and his acquaintances among the
I business men of this city, by whom he
will be greatly missed. We wish to
offer words of sympathy to the be
"A Royal Slave"
This is one of the most pleasing and
powerful productions in the line of
historical drama now on the road. We
have had all cla66cs of plays in Alliance
this season but none on the order of
"A Royal Slave." The scenes are
laid in Mexico and are based upon
historical incidents during the reign of
Maxamillian. There is a deep plot in
the play, and the scenic effects which
this company not only carry but use, is
of valuable help toward making a pro
duction well worth the price for admission-
Between acts entertaining
and pleasing specialties are given that
there may be no long waits. There
are eleven characters in the caste and
hve acts in the play. Owing to the
play being on Thanksgiving night, the
company has agreed to reduce prices
to 50 and 75 cents with the under
standing that all seats sold before six
o'clock Thnrsdav evening will be 50
cents and any seats sold after six
o clock will be 73 cents. Gallery will
50 cents. Thursday afternoon the
company will give a ladies' and child
ren's matinee at 15 and 25 cents and
are confident that those attending the
matinee will want to see the perform
ance again at night, Remember the
date, Thursday, Nov. 25.
