Everybody is Going of Course The demand for tickets for the Elks' Show is increasing daily. Reports have come in from the oil fields that a large crowd will attend from there. Box parties are forming and the Bakersfleld Opera House will be the scene of a huge social success for this engagement. What will probably prove to be the most representative audience ever seen here will be prsent for the Elks' frolic. The directors are very much pleased with the work of the committees and with the talent which is participating and more especially from the fact that every member of the company belongs to the Order of Elks and it will be strictly an Elks' show in every respect. The advance sale of seats opens at the box office Monday morning at 10 o'clock. The tickets that are at present being purchased from the Blks are exchangeable without extra charge at the box office for reserved Beats for eithr night. All holders of tickets and others are hereby notified to be on Rand early and secure teats. Since it has been understood that there is a partial change of program on Thursday night many people have signified their intention of attending both performances. It is now a certainty that the Elks will realize more handsomely from this engagement than from any previous benefits. Charlie Lee guarantees to shake hands with all who come down town to see the parade, which inducement will bring out the entire population of Kern County. Seriously, the parade ia worth more than a trip to town to see it, as the boys will be fully costumed and will march In true minstrel time. COSTUMING IN "THE ROYAL CHEF." HANDSOME CHARLIE LEE, Notifying Elkdom and lt» Friends to Come Down Town Wednesday Noon and Witness the Grand Parade. On Wednesday at noon fifty of the best looking Elks, with Handsome Charlie Lee In the van, dressed as the above picture represents, will proudly march through the principal streets of Bakersfield and Kern City, with bands playing and banners flying. When the curtain goes up at the Bakersfleld Opera House on the presentation of "The Royal Chef" tomorrow evening, people will be treated to some of the handsomest crca tion s in fashions and styles that have been seen in many a day. Miss Mary Malatesta, the prlma donna of the organization, will wear what is said to be some of the handsomest gowns ever worn on the stage. The models of Miss Malatcsta's gowns came direct from Paris, where they were secured hy Mr. Harry H. Frazee while over there. One of Miss Malatesta's creations is a beautiful gown of orange pompadour silk. .„ The sleeves are made of white chiffon pleated, and MORLEY'S THEATRE Masonic Temple, 2007 Chester Avenue Continuous Performance 7:30 to 10:30 P.

Main 1260 ROYAL CHEF FLOGS 8CKIPPEKS I. .StrasslrrrEer of San Francisco, a. member of the firm of Strassuerger & \Vrampelmier, which Is in dispute 1 with the McCutcheon brothers and others over the possession of certain Midway lands, regards the efforts of his rivals as scrlpping. "It is a steal, pure and simple," said Strassberger In conversation with a reporter this morning. "The oil men should get together and run the sctippers out of the country, like they did ten years ago in the Kern River field. I have had some trouble on section 30. One of my men has been arrested. I came in from Midway to see my attorney and find out just what procedure the other people are taking, I will give them no quarter. Whin they come to prove up they may find themselves In serious difficulty. They can not testify without perjuring themselves. For the past week 1 have been i; Midway tearing down wire fences that have been erected In the endavor to steal the land outright. I was prepared for them, however, and had materials all ready to be hauled on the ground. I have a rig up on the southwest quarter of section 30 and expect to be drilling shortly. I saw a number of well known oil people on my lands and when I accosted them to find out ' what they were doing, they said they ,had no claims against my land. Nobody out there seems to know what the other fellow is doing. This showj the stealth and fear with which they are trying to put through their clan destine schemes. "This Is one of the biggest fraud ever perpetuated. I think it is th work of an Oakland scrip broker. W have shown the srrippers once be fore what we can do to them and no\ it's time to show them again," Mr. Strassberger asserts that th 'time for doing work on his large lo | callous bus not expired as yet He does not nntleipnte mud trouble about the end of year, for he says ilin oil men are taking steps t< protect their holdings and will be pre paved to meet any emergency thai arises.

UENO, Oct.. 22.—Tho business portion of Reno is dark tonight, caused by the owners of the gambling houses and hotels turning off the lights to show what the city would look like in case the Anti-Gambling League drives gambling out of the corporate limits at a special election on October 24th. The usually brlliant commercial row looks like a tomb and some of the gambling houses are using candles to further emphasize tho contrast. The fight between the Anti-Gambling League anil the gamblers is very bitter and both sides arc making vigorous efforts lo place their respective views before the uon partisans. The pamblon; claim they, will place themselves just over the city limits in rase they are defeated and open In full swing. The limits of the city are very close to the center. *- present busine The regular weekly dance of tta Eagles was well attended last ev«- ing and everybody had the usual goo* time.
