Foil TIIK FIRST TIMIO IN ITS hisloij' Lelhhridgo is to he visited on Thursday anil Friday by that, slerlini; operatic iittisl .Jos-cpii Sheehan, whose work with the Henry Savage opera organisations in tlie cast is sq^w^cU known. 11 will lie noticed tliat the operas to be given here are to he sung in I^nglish so that no one need tc atrakl of not being able to follow the plot. As a matter of fact, however, Verdis' lamillar "11 Trovatore" arul Flan-qiiettc's "The Chimes ot Normandy" are two very well known opetas. The Sheehan Opera campauy conic here ^i' a time when tlic city will Ije in gala I attire on the occasion oJ the visit ot ' royalty, and it is to be hoped that citizens will make it a point ct being on hand at one of the opera performances in Ihe Majestic Theatre. 1 can personally recommend Mr. .Sheehan as , a gentleman and .in artist who v.ill give the public of his very best. The chorus supporting the star will l;e an j cllcctive singins unit and there will he a selected orchestra ot capable players. This is a grand opportuaity for Lethhridgc to turn out en tr?asse and give this operatic organization such .1 reception as will he long remembered. There is nothing finer than an evening well spent listening to the music ot the old masters. I trust every music lover in the city will soe tn it that Mr. .Shechan's visit here this wecv is crowned with succes.s. It is the big opening musical event of the year and you are certain to get value for your money. * � * Clever Juvenile Opera Co Delight Large Audience Uetore h large and enthusiastic audience at the Majestic theatre last evening the FollanI .luvenile Opera Co. nmde its initial appearance in a three night's engagement. The bill [ on this occasion was the oJd time light opera favorite Sergeant Bruc, made famous by our old friend P'rank Daniels, tlie diminutive con^edian in liis palmy days. IMueh has been written in the advance polices abo\it the ability of the Pollards to give satisfactory productions. Alter reviewing the performance last night one could not well find .iny cause to disagree with the press agent, wl'.o has for once told tho truth. Tlic Pollards are a company of clevi-r young people. Al-lliougli thry come from Australia, no one must imagine they are lilliputi-ans, on Ihe contrary thry are all young hcaltliy-looking juveniles thor-oughiy interested in the work aroti?d to thiMii. The pertorinancc would put to sliaine many an elTort by adult or-gauiwt'.ons. The voices arc oil ct a delightful (|itality, while there has been abundant evidence ot tiioroug,h training and rehearsing. One might venture a gentle iiit ot criticism ami that is that it might prove tenelicial if one or two of the burlesque situations were toiunl down a little. Too much horse play spoils a perforipanci* and Crookie Scrubhe came dan)!,erous-ly close to fulling in evil ways on n.'oro than one occasion, clever little fellow though he is. His local hits on Aid. llowman, Frank Waddington, Alayor Hatch and Joe Gillespie and Nelson's Slioe store, caught the fancy ot Ihe audience. Tlie solo singing of Eva I'ollard, Nellie McNamara and Phyllis I'liillipsoii aroused the audience to inti' admiration, while the hallot danoi'H were also warmly received. One must not forget to award special jiraise to that very clever I young comedienne Queenie Williams, j wliosc mimetic ability won for her \ the critical verdict ot the audience, i Teddy McXamara made an imxiionse hit as "Sergeant Uruc." The Pollards have come and- conquered, and Waliinili),ltetob(rl The Veteran's- Flrigade will fall In opposite the CP. 11, (old A.R., & I,) offices on Soventh Street south at 5,3Q p.m. for the purpose ot taking part In the reception o( Mis Royal UIkU-ncsB the Diike ot Connaught. CENTENARY OF THE CORTES Cadiz, Spain," Oct. 7.-Extensive celebrations were held yesterday In honor of a centenary of the Spauish cortes. The only discord was furnished by a Porto Rlcan delegate who in the course of his si)eech declared that the independent party of Porto Rico wob working incossanlly to free that country from "Yankee domination." He urged the South American republics to come to the aid of Porto Rico. ,Ex-Promier Moret characterized the utterance of the delegates "as the only sad note" of the fetes. Silkstone Guessing Contest Extended Owing to tho harvesting operations In progress throughout tho west, the farmeirs and their wives have not been able to take advantage of tho big opportunity offered them by G. F. Stephens li. Co., Ud... Winnipeg, Ihrough the Silkstone Contest, to I try the merits ot this beautiful wall 'coating, or enter their guesses as to tho amount of money contained in the jar. This contest as advertised ! by G. V. Stephen-j & Co., lAd., has at-' cracted very wide attention and many ot the Stephens' agents and other partiDB have rotiuostod the company to extend the time of the contest from September 30 to October lU. The company baa considered it fair to do this as no one has yet guessed the exact amount of money in tho jar. Until October 31, therofoi-e, any one who has bought a iiuart ot Silkstone, j.he beMiliful ami sanitary now wall i'lnlsli, may scnil In a guess as to the nmount ot money contained In the , jar now on exhibition at the Winnipeg ' Industrial Uuroaii.

' HE WOULD FORBID CATHOLICS TO VOTE POPE OPPOSED TO CLERICAL PARTY BEING FORMED-VIOLATE GREAT PRINCIPLE Rome, Oct. 7.-It is oxiiectod that tho Popo win shortly publish a document reiterating the voio known as non-oxpedit, which forbids Catholics to vote at parliameiitai-y oloctious except to prevent the election of open enemies of the church. The Popo is determined to prevent the I'ornifttion of a Catholic parliamentary party on the lines ot the Cter man Centre, on tho srouud that the representation of Catholics would imply recognition of tho Kingdom of Italy, Tho non-expedit decree was ef-fecllvo until the present electoral reform Increased the uurober of electors. It is now feared that at tho next electloji a ini^Jorlty of dathoUe deputies will bo returned if Catholic or-ganizntlcuH particlpnte in tho olon-tlon. and bonce the expected action by the Pope is likely. t^OR any "exclusive feat-ures" that the custom tailor may bie able to provide, you' are likely to pay heavily - probabjy more than the clothes theniselves are worth.
