SKATING RINK NOTES
Prof. Cltas. Tyler and Bessie Ber-
ton are taking from two to four cur-
tain calls every performance at the
Majestic theater, Chicago, this week.
Their portable floor works perfectly
anl they get away with a good clean
cut roller skating act.
Jack Fotch. the roller skater who
has been playing at rinks the last sea-
son in the west, is in Chicago resting
for a while, and says that he will ac-
cept no vaudeville work for this com-
ing year, claiming that he can get
bookings at all rinks where he has
exhibited.
The vaudeville theater at Forest
park is enjoying good crowds when
the weather permits. The bookings
of the theater are very good and de-
serve still better patronage.  This
week Clever Conkey is amusing the
people as well as all the others on the
hill.
blork has been started to raise
Beller's rink on Second street at Canal
Dover. Ohio, so as to allow the build-
ing of another story under it.
Robert 1-. Lovejoy has leased the
skating rink at La Grange, Ga., and
has opened it to big business.

Stock of $250,000 and Asks for
New York State Charter.
ALBANY, N. Y., July 12.-The
most significant theatrical move of
the week is regarded to be the incor-
poration of the Hammerstein Opera
Company,, which filed papers with
themSecretary ofStatetoday. While
the capital stock is $250,000, the amount
paid in is but $500. The articles of
incorporation set forth the fact that

opera houses and theaters, will act
as proprietors and managers and will
provide for production of ballet, pan-
tomine and   spectacular  offerings.
Librettos will also be purchased and
disposed of. The '--ctors are Oscar
Hammerstein.  , illiam Hammerstein
and Edwin B. Root.-FREDERIC T.

Willard Mack Down and Out.
SALT LAKE CITY, July 11.-Wil-
lardeMackis down and out and the
cause of the fall from grace of this
one time most popular star of the
local stage is said to bedrink.  His
connection  here with the  Colonial
wassevered sometime   ago,because
of Mack's continuial inebriated condi-
tion, which was the means of dismis-
sing several houses;. Mackc then be-
gan on his own account but it did not
last ong andthe company playing at
the Grand soon saw the hopelessness
of the case. A house was dismissed
once too often.
Frank MT. Eldredge has taken the
company under his management, and
with Frederick Moore and Blanche
Douglas will open tonight with "In
Missouri." Following is the personnel
of the remainder of the company:
Harry Blanchard, Arling Alcine, Ira
Earle, Lee Miller, Joe Kennedy, Elea-
nor Everett, Anna McNughton, Wil-

Miss Lillian Graham, the young American dancer, who has been
appearing in London, Paris, Berlin and St. Petersburg with great suc-
cess, has, through the influence of J. J. Murdock, been secured by the
Drankoff company of St. Petersburg, Russia, to pose in a series of
dancing pantomine pictures, representing Russian folk lore.  Miss
Graham appeared in this country in one of Charles Frohman's produc-
tions, but owing to the Gerry Society of this city being particularly
active, Miss Graham's parents decided to take her to France, where
she has been educated by the nuns of the "Sacre Coeur" convent there.
Since graduating, she has been taught dancing in four different coun-
tries-France, England, Germany and Russia. It is very questionable if
the stage holds today another dancer capable of accomplishing what
Miss Lillian Graham does. During the fall season, these pictures will be
shown in the theaters controlled by the International Projecting and
Producing Company.
