who extend their congratulations to
them upon the prompt advancement
which he has received with the Al

able man, was generally conceded
here by all and they were not sur
prised at the recognition which he
has received. The extract follows:
"When It wus decided some few
months past to create a distinct

selected to accept the task of reor

ing his appointment, effective No

trict . storekeeper, have been issued,
giving Mr. Cooper entire charge of
Alton properties, Chicago to Kansas
City and St. Louis and all branch
lines. Mr. Cooper, while a com
compartlve new man In Alton cir

men of official railway standing,
having been storekeeper for jome
of the largest systems in the United
States and general supply agent for
the C. B. & Q. railroad, his many
friends locally and otherwise will be
pleased to note his appointment. Mr.
Cooper and his family reside at 114

One of the Finest Plays That
Ever Came to Omaha.
To those who like "The Lion and
the Mouse," "The Ringmaster" will
doubtless appeal, though the only
real note of similarity between the
two Is the uprightness of youth and
the greed of the kings of finance
have for unlimited control.
John LeBaron, Jr., living a con
tended life of Idleness, finds that, he
Is In love with Elenor Hillary, daugh
ter of the much feared "Ringmast
er. She returns hia affection, promis
ing to marry him on the condition
that he will go out In the financial
world and carve a niche in the wall
of workers for himself, as her father
and his father have done. Upon this
he agrees, and opens an office near
the stock exchange. Ills policy, as
he has accepted it, makes it neces
sary for him to become the chief
financial enemy of Hillary. In the
war for control which follows,
Elenor's father is exhibited as a
rather unscrupulous financier, but
Elenor mistakes these questionable
business traits as belonging to Le
Baron until Hillary confesses that
It Is he and not LeBaron who Is
guilty, isaturany, sne reproacnes
her lover for being in direct opposi
tion to her father, though she for
gives him in the end, not so readily,
however, as she did her father. This
is the main theme of human inter
est derived from a financial battle
to gain control of certain smelting
Interests, In which the ringmaster
tries to buy a railroad of which the
porter, and Rebecca Love, a very
frivolous and effervescent young
woman. . These young people un
known to themselves, discover cer
tain facts by intercepting a wireless
message and ciphering it out, which
starts LeBaron in his turbulent
career as a power on the exchange.
This play of. high finance which
deals more with the technique of
buying and selling stocks than the
real things of general interest to
humanity, was written by Olive
Porter. Miss Porter, it is said, spent
considerable time In the office of a
Wall street financier in the capac
ity of stenographer, her story is
written with the knowledge of a sub
ject only gained by close association,
which evidently was spent In care
fur observation. Miss Porter having
made the dialogue between the male
characters exceedingly strong,
greater part is known by LeBaron.
In gaining this, he expects to raise
rates in shipping supplies to a cer
tain plant, thereby forcing It In order
to meet competition to those who

come into the combination. Here is
where LeBaron displays his quixotic
honesty and refuses to become a
party to a scheme so unpatriotic and
Inhuman. Supplementary to this
main plot, are several minor plots,
one being the love affair between
Peter Stuyvcsant Gbbb, a young re
A small piece of characterization,
which Is so artistically and careful
ly done, that it stands out more con
spicuously than any other in the
caste, is that of Harry D. Crosby, as
ex-Senator Paul Graven, for perfec
tion of the smallest detail, Mr.
Crosby has been most studious, and
he Is especially deserving of praiHw
in making a minor part so life-like.
"The Ringmaster," as played by'
Frederic Montague, is forceful ainl
strong. He rises to the situation
with apparent ease and power. As
the young financier, John LeBaron,
Jr., H. S. Northrup is at his best.
The character gives him an oppor
tunity to give way to the full power
of expression and voice. Another
praise-worthy piece of acting is done
by F. A. Yelvinyton, as the old rail
road president. The other members
of the caste serve to balance the
whole quite well. Alice Weeks, as
Elenor Hillary, is thoroughly cap
able and handles the role very well
indeed. Miss Anna Lee, a young .
woman, played the part of Rebecca
Love in a spirited manner. Clara
Coleman created many laughs in the
