Hose Eytinge Dead. Rose Eytlnga died at the Actors' home from an apoplectic stroke on Wednesday. She had been at the home for several months, jnd was in goefd health up to the tlme'she was stricken. Miss .Eytinge was born in 1835, and spent many yeurs on the stage. She will be recalled as playing with Booth and other leading actors of his day, and also as a success ful star In serious and emotional roles. In 1870 she went with her husband to Egypt, where he waa appointed as con sul general, ana uvea mere ror several years. After returning to America ahe returned to the stage, and was active in connection with it till her accumulating years rendered retirement Imperative. Many ot the older patrons of the theater will recall her aa Jean In "The Heart of Midlothian," and aa the heroine in "Grif fith Gaunt," roles she made her own. flack In the Shnfeerta. The Columbia Amusement company has .turned the.BU Paul Shubert theater back , to the Shuberts, and on Sunday night "Alias Jimmy Valentine" will open there... After that the Bhubert attractions will be presented at the theater. The Eastern Wheel people are planning for a "one-night" campaign to fill the week between Minneapolis and Omaha, but the local house will not, be in any way In volved in the deal. It waa found at St. Paul that the Shubert theater, while a really beautiful house, ia located too far out of the way of travel to be profitable as a burlesque house. Sothera Defends Bhakeieare'a Title. In January number, of Munsey's mag axlne, K. 11. Bothern. it is announced, will grill the Shakespeare-Baconian theo rists. Yet, the editor informs us, that the actor would not, as has been the oustom, answer arguments by calling names and the usual name for a Baconian in some quarters is a "blithering idiot." It la Maid that - Mr. Bothern has presented the Shakespeare side of the case in a new light, else, indeed, there would be small excuse for reviving 4 subject which has occasioned ao much heated passion and bad languaga. It is not to be hoped that Mr. Bothern will be able to lead any ot the rampant Baconians into the light, ahd still their ravings; but. if he is able to steer-other, and mayhap younger, feet away,, from the noisy madhouse, he. will be entitled to the public's regard. . ' Xornl fitnm Notre. ' .' The ptury of "A Romance of the Under world," the big dramatlo - production which will be the headline attraction at the Orpheum during Chrlstmaa week, la simple enough. It has to do with the at tempt to U all road an Innocent man into the penitentiary. The three scenes show sentencing day In the court -of general sessions. New York City, ' the street In front of "The Bridge of Sighs" and the interior of the Tombs.. In .the opening soene a number of prisoners ' appear before Judge Uorth to receive their sentence. 'Among the characters are the "dope fiend," the amateur female shoplifter, the Irishman, Slippery Jake, Kliiult, the man unjustly accused, O'Leary, the ward boss, and McDermott, the young lawyer. The plot is a strong one and the twenty-three parts in the cast are excellently portrayed. The love element in the story la full of human in- . terest. s ' Aa it may be Imagined, it la the aim of the theatrical manager to supply bis patrons with the very beet the play market offers as a Chrlstmaa offering. The management of the Brandels theater fels confident that in securing George M. Cohan's famous comedy "Get Rich tjulck Walltngford," as the Tuletide' at- traction, it has obtained the very best , attraction there la to be had. The play ' will be at the Brandels theater four nights beginning Sunday night, with matinees Christmas and Wednesday. The seat sale at the Brandels theater for "The Spring Maid," which opens lta engagement at that house on Thursday, December 28, is a good indication how much mora generally the public Is in formed on the newest of theatrical pro ductions than In uut years. The seat demand has kept pace with the reputa tion of "The Spring Maid" in New York and its later furore In San Francisco. It will be the first hearing here In opera of the much, praised little Hungarian prima donna, Mlszl Hajoa. A matinee will be given on Saturday. Santa Claus was buy at tha American yesterday afternoon banding out dolls to little girls and toys to little boys who were In attendance at the matinee per formance of "Hello, Bill'." Th good old saint will repeat tha stunt on Saturday afternoon when every youngster who at tends will be remembered. On Sunday afternoon the first performance of the Chrlstmaa week bill will be given, "Sauce ' for the tsooae, a charming comedy that lias never been seen in Omaha although it wad acted with much succuee In New York by Miss Grace George for whom it was written. Persistent Advertising la the Roai to AFFAIRS ATJOUTH OMAHA Renewal Bonds Will Ee Offered for Sale Tonight OVER HUNDRED THOUSAND BLOCK Sanrnai Dealer Apvnr ant There Are Evldeneee that Genalne Competition Will Hesnlt for Blsr lunar. Tonight at a special meeting ot the city council there will be offered for sale an Issue of renewal bonds Involving I110,8so. The city has offered them at the rate of 4 per cent and If the Inten tion of the mayor and more conservative members of the city council carries, the bonds will be aold at that figure and no other. There has been considerable discussion whether the city will be able to get bid ders at the 4ii per cent rate, but since the city clerk and the mayor have taken It upon themselves personally to Inter est different bond houses the country over, the responses received have been encouraging to say the least. Yesterday bond buyers from representa tive houses called upon the mayor and It Is hoped that at tonight's meeting there will bo enough competition to war rant the sale of the bonds at the figure mentioned by the city. It Is, however, understood that there Is a determined effort to make the city pay 6 per cent on the bonds Instead of the figure quoted. This cannot be done unless the ordinance calling for the sale of bonds at i per cent Is made to read 5 per cent. Bald Mayor Tralnor yesterday: "Those bonds will be sold at i per cent on they will not be sold at all. I mean to take a hand in this matter myself and If the bonds are not taken at the figure of fered by the city we will make arrange ments that will protect the credit of the city and at the same time leave the bonds to a future date when our figures will be accepted." Aa to the further Issue of the 1912 bonds there Is a strong undercurrent of sentiment that favors the postponement of the Issue until a time when the money Is actually In demand for the proposed improvements. Maya Plronka I'narps Right. Chief of Police John BrlKKs yesterday charged Police Commissioner Joseph Pivonka with overstepping the limits of his authority In usurping the duties of the chief of police. Chief Briggs says that in effect the system being pursued by Commissioner Pivonka will demoralize the discipline of the police department. The chief in stanced several cases where officers were given directions by the commissioner in the face of counter commands from the chief and captains. In one case where the chief for the kotoI of the service refused to accord a ten days' leave to an officer the request was repeated during the chiefs absence to two of the captains, who flatly refused to accord the permission. In this In stance the' chief avera Commissioner Pivonka told the officer In question to take the ten days' leave. Chief Briggs mentioned a case where an officer was relieved of his club and star by the police commissioner without having any recourse to the chief. "This state of affairs cannot go on without detriment to the police depart ment," Bald the chief as he concluded his interview. " . Mayor aa Santa Clans. Mayor Trainpr will act .as Santa Claus to the poor of the city this afternoon when ha gives away the Christmas good things collected from the packers and some of the merchants. Early this morning wagons will be sent to the merchants who have promised gifts for the poor and it Is expected that a large amount of goods' and eatables will have been collected before noon. Mayor Tralnor has carried out hla in tention of helping some of the deserving poor of the city unaided save for the merchants and packers who responded to his appeal. Not all of those who were approached in the good cause came tor- ward with the generosity that might have been expected from the prosperous at this season of the year. One grocer when asked to contribute in money or goods declared that he had not seen any of the city's trade on his order books. The donations collected consist of meats and chickens from the packera, clothes, groceries, toys, fruits, vegetable and everything that goes to make up a happy Christmas for the poor.
