street Theater for the sum of 1580L Phe superstition of hoodooed theaters among members of the dramatic profession has found abundant support in the disasters which have surrounded first the Bijou Theater on Market atreetand secondly the Powell - streetTheater The histbnrof the first - named house is a familiar one to all readers of newspapers but the record of the trials and tribulations losses and disappointments that have been showered by unkind fate upon those who built and tried to run the reauy pretty and cOmfqriable theater on Powell street h3 never been given On the south side of Sacramento street hear Kearny a few7years ago there was a ten -

the first - class theaters - The Schwartz brothers were industrious and frugal and made money as barbers but the continued scraping of actors chins caused them to become inoculated with the disease most to be dreaded bv the inex perienced man in the show business the managerial lever - Quitting their tonsorial parlors the two brothers invested their little savings in a Barbarjr coast music hall known as Bottle Kocniffs situated on Pacific street The Schwartz Brothers did not have sufficient funds to buy tho place outright but by an arrangement with Fred Siebe of Siebe Brothers Plageman and MDenickethe brewer they secured the additional capital needed 7 For a timelt seemed that the brothers had found their true Vocation in running a dive for they made money paid off the debts incurred In buying the music hall and succeeded in sccumulating some f 10 - 000 in bank Instead of being content with their success the Schwartz bovs be gan to long for loftier heights and finally they succeeded In seain in terestins their farmer backers in theirambitiour scheme it was arraneen mat tne scnwmz Brothers SiebeBrotbers Plageman and iL Denicke should leasefromDrYouneer the guardian of the minor owner of the property the Jot on Powell street opposite the Baldwin Hofet - and should erect thereon a magnificent variety theater As near as can be ascertained the lot was leased for a term of twenty years at 600 a month with the further stipulation that Upon the expiration of the lease the building should become the property of the owner of the lot -Under this lease the parties named erected the building known as - the Powell - street Theater at a cost of about f 120000 The Schwartz Brothers having sold their Barbary Coast aive for - about 10000 and aauiug taereta tne iuwu tney naa saved became ooe - sixtli owners of the new tbeatertbereraaininzS100000 belnz di vided between the other parties 1 n noose nnisned toe Schwartz Uroth -

office balance showed a deficit At first the Schwartz Brothers borrowed money from theli partners to meet their bills mortgaging their interest in the property Finally farther aid was refused ihem as managers and thehouso was closed An arrjngement was made whereby Mark Thall and Alfred Ellin g - hbuse took the theater under the alleged management of the Schwartz Brothers The new firm only agreed to furnish the show and take GO per centof the receipts the Sch warts Brothers to pay out of their 40 per cent the fnnninjr expenses of the theater such as thegas water rent orchestra etc Thatl and EllinghQuse madesoine money but the 40 per cent that went to the fichwartr Brothers was not enoagh to meet their part of the bills and the house was again dosed -
