The White Slave.
The Cincinnati Times-Star of Novem

White Slave" which is to bo presented
in the Norfolk Auditorium on February
12 :
"Few plays can appear before the
public for nineteen years and still at
tract the interest of the people , and ,
what is7perhaps of more importance to
the manager , the crowds that greeted
the performance of 'The White Slave1
at Heuck's opera house Sunday. Bart-
ley Campbell , when ho wrote this , his
masterpiece , had become an adopt at ap
pealing gracefully and skilfully to the
emotion * of his auditors , and to thlf
fact the pluy undoubtedly ewes its long
and successful existence. The pluy In
well staged and acted and ought topiovc
ono of the best attractions of the season
for the house. Miss Thurlow'Hintoi po
tation of the character of 'Li a , ' the
white slave , was maflteiful and should
prove the. stepping stone for something
of a higher nature for this talented
young woman. In the character of
'Nnnco , ' AlUH Loituski Young appears
to advantage , while Frank N. Dunv ,
who as 'Mr. Stitch' bus been making
love to a shrewish widow almost since
the first performance of the play , seems
to show added improvement as the yeuri-

Manager Bidwell and other Klkhorn
olllcials are experiencing conulderablo
( lilllcnlty in selecting a route for the
proposed extension of that line from
Vcrdigro into Boyd cimnty. They have
several routes to chooBO from , each
about as favorable as the otrcrandthoso
particularly interested in each ronto are
exerting themselves to huvo the extension -
tension come their way. The manage
ment has thus far accepted nothing but
a right of way , depot sites and entrance
into towns from pcoplo along the line ,
but rival towns and localities express a
desire to offer additional inducements to
bring the road their way. Manager
Bidwell is quoted as saying. "There
haw boon no determination on the mat
ter yet , but the route through Bristow
to Spencer and on up to But to is now
the ouo held in greatest favor. This fol
lows the south branch of the work on
which wo are now experimenting. It
runs alongs Ponca creek. Spencer
is about fifteen miles from Lynch ,
and the surveyors nro not yet there.
Wo can got into the town silo of Spen
cer easily , since it extends from the hills
down to the creek bottom. To Butte
it will be different. That town is lo
cated on a high hill. BL von or eight miles
farther on anil more than n. mile from
the creek , and wo cannot outer it ,
though wo will bo within the distance
named if wo follow this route. The
other branch of the fork runs out of
Lynch , northwest along Silver creek
Both are tentative projectB , with the
sentiment favoring the Butte line now. "
