This is the third season that Mr. Dunbar has had his company on the road in this production, and a review of the cast of characters shows such well-known names as Albert Parr, for the role of Robin Hood; Tom Burton, late of the Princess Opera Company, London, England, as the Sheriff of Nottingham; Saul Solomon as Sir Guy of Gisborne; Harry Longstreet as Little John; William Degen as Will Scarlett; John MacSweeney, Friar Tuck; Lorna Doone Jackson, Alan-a-Dale; Elsa Thiede, Maide Marian; Mrs. Clarence Bennett, Dame Durden; and Mary Baker as Anna-...

...found impression upon vast crowd of music-lovers that greeted them last evening," reported the San Francisco Call recently. "The organization which Emil Oberhoffer has built up after years of work performed with unflagging energy, is one which will readily stand comparison with any other orchestra in this country," wrote the Musical Courier nearly five years ago.

The cancellation early in the Summer of proposed recital which was to have been given by Mrs. Macdonald Fahey was the occasion of very general disappointment among her hosts of admirers here, who have been anticipating, however, that opportunity would be given to hear her yet once again before her return East. It is now announced that arrangements have been concluded with the officers of the Metropolitan Methodist Church for a recital to be given there on Friday, September 24. Mrs. Fahey is at present in Prince Rupert, and on Tuesday evening will appear in the first concert of a series which she will give before she returns to the city. Her recital in Victoria, the programme for which will be announced in due course, may be called "Special Request Recital," as until a few days ago it had not been intended to include this city in the Coast to Coast tour which she is about to give. The forthcoming event will be very keenly looked forward to by all music lovers here. ________________
