Captain and Mrs, PiaroiIujrjh.j "Adele," French Operetta, Dainty, Fragrant, Tuneful, Few Chorus Girls and Fewer Chorus Men, but Cast of Excellence. By Neill Wilson. "Adele" arrived last night. The elements were colliding outside, and the Columbia was being l.'ihhd by one of Father Ricard's flrifpt deluges when this little spring rrfume of an operetta stole in and found shelter. "Adele," you know. Is the bit of musical fragrance. that haa been the despair of all the other operatic bouquets In New York for six months past, and that has been wafted to San Francisco at this prompt date by an auxiliary company. And a bough of scented freshness it In, dainty and delicate, and as tuneful as a branch full of robins. Now "Adele." thoush It has been a pronounced success In the very center of the theatrical maelstrom, contains nothing that Is apt to be stamped boisterous. It is a quiet little opera. If it were not French, the proper word would be sedate. One wonders how far the ample opportunities for salaclousnesa were pursued when the show was In Its original French. But all that has been read out of It, and despite Its theme the piece Is the acme of restraint. The theme of "Adele" Is of a bride fresh from a convent who contrives temporary matrimony with a convenient baron In order to escape the parental wing and to achieve a suitor who haa been forbidden. "Adele" la modestly satisfied with a single vein of plot and a scanty complement of principals, and Is lacking almost entirely In chorus ladies and their easily dispenslble adjunct, chorus men. Nine statuesque person-pges whose presence makes the stage look like a fashion show are presented In lieu of the chorus that we miss so blithely. And of male citorua persona we could And bnt four. Great la the trend of musical comedy, and "Adele" Is Its prophet! So "Adele," presented by a cast that totals Just twenty-one, finds Its progress chiefly In the hands of its principals; and of them, chiefly In the hands of Carolyn Thomson and John Park. They aay that the little woman ' who has come out here at the head Li the leading musical comedy of th year Is but 19 years old. It is most probable. If she were much beyond that age ahe would be decidedly more famous. For It is the fragile, dainty titlo-player of the piece that you will recall when you recall "Adele"; very winsome she was last night, and her Ettcctss was the success of the play. Because It took four to compound Adele's plot for circumventing a parent. It takes four to complete the chief elements of "Adele"; and excellently they have been chosen. Robert Friebur, the sardine packer's son, whom Adele would wed, Is a callow character, played and sung as well as may be by Alfred Kappeler. Baron Chantilly is represented by John Park. Myrlane la the lady whom the baron would marry if he could overcome the disadvantage of bankruptcy, and she Is sung by Nanette Flack. When "Alma" was out here Nanette Flack flashed into brilliant local popularity as its prima donna. And Carolyn Thompson, of course. Carolyn Thompson Is "Adele." The three acts of this denatured boudoir operetta are set very attractively. The first. In the apartments of the bankrupt Baron de Chantilly, contains through the windows a night horizon of Paris boulevards that brought Its own gasp of delight from the audience; and the second, Adele's suite, Is a masterpiece of daintiness. The final scene is in the garden beyond Adele's windows. Nothing that will add to the picture has been left ttndone. "Adele" is one of the prettiest effects In staging and tunefulest of bong plays that has been here for some time. " TRAFFIC IN SOULS" FILM ON AT GAIETY THEATRE Greed, hypocrisy, the lure of the white lights and gay music In fact, all the elements which contribute to the possibility of the white-slave traffic are placed before the audience at the Gaiety Theatre this week In a film-drama entitled "The Traffic In Souls," which deals In a plain and unvarnished manner with the "man high- are sailing for the Philippines on February S.

Royalty Coming BY way of escaping from the gusty storms of February and March, when the fashionables of the EaMern coast either go to Southern Europe or to Florida resortfl, Lord and Lady Decies (Vivien Gould) are coming to California. Their sojourn here and at Santa Barbara and Coronado will be the Incentive for much entertaining, as both have many friends here. They will be at Coronado for the polo tournament in March, and will spend a fortnight or longer in San Francisco. Lord Decies is one of the crack polo players of Ireland and may participate in some of the games here, but not in the tournament. 4 Lieutenant and Mrs. Emery Smith continue to be feted by their, various friends, all of whom are charmed with the bewitching Mrs. Smith.

The principal theme la the luring away from home of a young and Innocent girl, who is drugged and carried to a resort where, after the man whd had charmed her Is exposed, she is rescued. Around this is woven a chain of incidenta which exposes the various ramifications of the whiteslave traffic The pictures are well made, and some of the incidenta are highly dramatic. Several of the scenes are brutal In their strength, but all are absolutely devoid of unnecessary vulgarity, and every Incident carries Its lesson. MACK AT THE ALCAZAR. Andrew Mack will appear at the On Saturday evening, Mr. and Mrs. Douglas McBryde gave a dancing party in their honor at their home in Vallejo street Mrs. William H. Smith, mother of Lieutenant Smith, received with them.

''' '''""SHBgBHiBBBSaaMSBSiBgBga MHHBnlMB9ail1l1Ml1l1lllaR!!S"!1 tA& the Columbia Frances Cameron Proves Delight to Audiences at the Orpheum. Not to have known France! Cameron Is an ancient regret of this city that hag known "The Merry Widow" well. Tha frequent passages of that famous operetta were always accompanied by Mabel Wilbur, a pleasing member of the Association of Merry Widows, but only one of the many. Frances Cameron has usually been routed elsewhere. The new bill at the O.-phaum, however, ha brought Frances Cameron Anally here, and It waa through those Viennese strains yesterday that she made herself acquainted. Miss Cameron and Walter Lawrence appear In the headline sketch, which la a musical brew laced with the song successes of many a recent operetta. Lawrence is a musical comedy star with a magnitude of hla own, and they make an agreeable pair. There is another playlet here this week, In addition to the Civil War reminiscence of Wlllard Mack's. It is "The Double Cross," a brief drama on police corruption from a short story by Will Irwin that has been dramatized by Ralph E. Renaud. "The Double Cross" enters the bill shortly before the Intermission, and It lb a playlet of considerable thrill and excellent staging. Will Irwin's story was "Uncle Edward and Cousin Silas." It presented the trapping of a grafting police detective by the bunco man he had Just finished trimming with neatness and dispatch. Ralph Renaud, a former San Francisco writer, has contrived a play out of the material that got over nicely. The Wlllard Mack play, which Frank Keenan and Mac M. Barnes were presenting so successfully all last week, remains to do duty on the present bill. Equilibrists, the Peres four, open the show with some feats in ladder balancing. A pair with nimble feet and a collection of Jaunty slang, Helen Gladyngs and Roy Cummlngs had their own following yesterday. And it was another pair of before-the-cur-taln performers, Smith and Cook, that early captured the fancy of the crowd. Their hobo makeup and rough-house humor shall do what Is possible to prevent vaudeville from becoming too polite at the hands of the Showalters and Maurices. A similar task Is undertaken by Paul Conchas and his confederate, Julius Neuman. The two stalled through a burlesque strong-man act that had certain genuine strong-man features in the way of weight lifting and a lot of genuine comedy. Edna Showalter, the lone opera singer, repeated soma of her vocal repertoire yesterday to full orchestra accompaniment, and -then hid herself behind a grand piano and sang "Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms." She entered upon the old ballad to a rain of applause and wound up in a whirlwind. And yesterday inaugurated the third and final week of Maurice. 4 AT MOVIXG PICTl'RE HOt'SES. The Tlvoli yesterday presented a motion picture version of "The Lion and the Mouse," Charles Klelne'a famous play. Jack Barrymore has now been "filmed" and was shown at Grauman's Imperial Theatre yesterday in "An American Citizen." At the Portola, "The Inside of the White Slave Traffic' is announced for another week. SiF.W TRAVESTY AT WIGWAM, The new show at the Wigwam yesterday brought Monte Carter and his musical comedy company Into view In a travesty called "Izzy Abroad." There are several new vaudeville numbers on the bill. Amateur night Is announced for Thursday. D. A-t C.E.IN11D 0FS.P.HIE5 Romance, Following His Secret Divorce, Is Complete Surprise to Friends. When C. E. Wsntland, general siA'es agent of the Southern Paelflo Company's land department, left hi apartments at the St. Francis Hole several days ago, it waa ostensibly on a periodical business trip to Los Angeles. Yesterday a message from the Southland to Assistant Manager Thomas Keating made a future reservation of accommodations for "Mrs. Wantlaad and self." It was the first Intimation Want-land's friends had received of his quiet marriage In Los Angeles four days ago, and the first hint that they had received of the fact that Want-land's separation from his former wife in Denver two years ago, had culminated some months since in a secret divorce. The bride of last week was Miss Ethel Mllliken, daughter of Mrs. Robert Mllliken, whose husband waa a well-known Colorado mining engineer. Wantland's latest romance began a few months ago when Mrs. Mllliken and her daughter moved from Florence, Colorado, to Los Angeles. Up and down the Coast Wantland is familiarly known as the founder of the "Short Man's Club," an organization through whose work he hopes to discourage among men of his own diminutive stature a super-sensitiveness when made the brunt of Jokes aimed at their lack of height.
