NTcw'Circuit Formed In- cluding1 .Spokane and Lctlibridge It wit! be good news to 'theatre-goers in this city lo learn that (he duy.of show pirating is almost at an end In Canada, Kor sonic time past Western cities have hud foisted upon them theatrical attractions of Infer- ior quality aiid Letbbrldgo In ular been unfortunately visited by companies'who had absolutely no li- cense io take money from tho theatre loving public. Yesterday a very strong alliance was formed compris- ing the theatres of. W. 13. Sherman, Calgary; John Cort, Seattle, and C.P. Walker, Winnipeg, under the'title of "The Northwest Theatre Circuit." This combination will control the leading theatres between Chicago and the Pacific coast and will ensure more satisfactory theatrical attractions than we have hitherto 'been accustomed to "witness. It is useless to attempt edu- cating the public to patronize sonic- thing which on the very face oC it is utterly worthless. The ;head offices of the new, theatrical company will be in New York, and it is the intention of the' directors to instal thoroughly efficient men in charge of the various theatres who understand the theatri- cal business. In several I heat res in Western Canada there has been gross neglect and inability in the managing of theatres. The public never seem to >be considered and qultf! frequently managers ueem to tuko it feu- granted that any old thing will do for tho west. Dot Hila is altogether an erron- eous impression, as there can be no question whatever if-plays of first calibre are brought out hero they need liavo no fear of doing good business. It is admitted that Hie expense- of "transportation hi this western coun- try h great but this situation ought to bo remedied largely by tho which has just been announced. Tho Herald was informed authentically lant evening from headquarters of tho move which has taken place. For some time past tho Herald has made it clear that it will not under any cir- cumstances encourage theatrical at- tractions which do not measure up sat- isfactorily. Them is absolutely no use wasting time and money attempt- ing to sustnlu Misrepresentation and tiie sooner theatrical managers stir themselves to a true situation of our requirements tho sooner will the vn.-it be in a position to command attrac- tions eciiial to those produced in the east. The tremendous sneccsti gained here last Monday and Tuesday by the big musical revue "Miss Nobody from Starland" "proves conclusively that Lotlibridgo will patronize- a first class attraction, and this tho Herald has nil along iidvocated and will continue to advocate. The theatre going public must be guided ariglit whether a the- atrical .manager _likes it or not, and destructive cism will always help to clear the way to ibetter conditions all round.

Before eight o'clock practically every man was in his place. Sonic few failed f.o show up, and were not on their subdivisions i when ine o'clock came. Thev Ir.-at out, and will remember next time that it never pays to be late. Six city policemen, in charge of Chief Gillespie, and four members of the Mounted Police detachment, wore present this morning to take charge of the crowds. Hundreds c-f curious citizens were also on the ground to witness the novelty of a-grab for free homesteads. The-overhead bridge was lined with spectators, the camera fiend being very much in evidence. .But so orderly and good natured was the crowd (hat those who came to witness an old-time land grab went away disappointed. Doors Opened Promptly -.Promptly at nine o'clock the doors were thrown open. The steps leading to ihe office were guarded by half a dozen police, but in reality one would havo -been sufficient. There, was not the least semblance of a rush. An order came from Agent Stafford to iiiluw fifty men to enter. Fifty were told oCE and filed in. Chief Gil- lespie stood at the -door, and as -each man passed him, the lease which en- titled him to a place in the line, was collected, and being found in order the man was allowed to pass. Stagg was No. 1 The whole fifty'crowd-ad inl.p tfas main office, and then began the work of filing. T. H.

He had made him- self richer to the extent 320 acres of the best laud in tbe south Hatch plan worked admirably in every detail. At .the last land-rush there were two deaths caused by pneumonia, brought on by .exposure to the bitter cold of February, Not sp this time; the plan has proven itself humane, sanitary and in every way acceptable, and there is no doubt that the depart- ment QJ the interior will thoroughly investigate and work in conjunction fitji the municipal authorities along similar lines' in the laud rushes ot" the future. to those in tho line if they would file, and allow him to cancel entry later, when he will enter some df. his friends on the homestead, thus giving him control of a large block of land. No. 24 in the line was seen talking to this party, and the magnificent sum of ten dollars changed hands. teelive Egan happened to ea'ch tho .transaction, however, and both Xo. 24 and the boomer were given strict in- structions to depart in double quick time. One of "the -boomer faction also tried to put one over, on tho police. He got in line about 75 places dcmi, and'was going to try to work himself in. He waa seen fumbling with some money, with which he was apparently going lo try to -buy off the police. When he came lo ihe point 'where they were checked off, however, his fun ended. The boomer was recognized through his rather intimate acquaintance with the police last night; and he was ig- nominibusSy "ejected'froin tiie lino. That was the.extent of the trouble. Not another ihitig happened to mar the even t-anor of the so-called rush. Tt might have church.parade for all tbe in evidence.
