EVANSVILLE, Ind., Oct. 26.-During
the past week Edward Raymond laid the
first brick for the new Majestic which
is to be completed by Christmas day.
While laying the brick an old gray-
haired man stood by and told how he
had helped build the old mill which
some five years ago had been changed
into a theater. The old gentleman said:
"The old canal ran by this place in the
early fifties, when 1 helped build the
mill, and now it is in the center of the
city, and I had the pleasure of seeing
Mr. Raymond lay the first brick for his
new undertaking."-OBERDORFER.
NEW ORLEANS, La., Oct. 25.-Man-
ager Henry Greenwall and Walter S.
Baldwin, of the Dauphine theater, closed
its doors Saturday night and this ends
the short season of stock of the Dau-
phine  Stock  company.    "Everything
possible has been done for this theater
and we have given the theater-goers the
best company and plays the market
affords, but it is my opinion that New
Orleans does not want stock," remarked
Henry Greenwall. "Not even at popu-
lar prices. Never in the history of the-
atricals has such a company and such
productions been given the public at
such ridiculously low prices. I can't
figure it out except as I said before that
New Orleans is tired of stock. "The
Octoroon" is a play that should draw
well and we have spared no expense on
the production or cheapened it in any
way. We gave the patrons the same
elaborate production this week that they
had during the season."
Walter Baldwin talked on the same
lines and said it was very dishearten-
ing to work as they had done this sea-
son at the Dauphine and then get such
small recognition from the public.
"Every member of my company has
come to love New Orleans and it was
quite a disappointment to them to have
to close so early," said Mr. Baldwin.-

Illinois State Zoo Amusement company,
has been filed in the Sangamon county
circuit court by Ralph N. Baker of
Springfield. Baker furnished the lum-
her for the buildings and claims $6,400
is yet due. In addition it is said the
corporation is unable to meet notes for
$12,000 due A. L. Converse from whom
the site was purchased. Much stock
was sold throughout the state and the
park is fairly well equipped but as it
is not reached by the street car lines

press belief that the obligations will be
