Times of Nov. 17, says: One might have known "Ole Olson " was in the city; from the arnoimt of j-elling and ecstatic clapping of hands that came irom the Bijou last night. The company began a week's engagement there last night to a tremendously large house. It was literally jammed, as the expression goes. Gus" Heege, who created the part of "OleOlson," andplayed :t the last time the company was here, s now looking for something else to do Li. S. Scott, formerly of Scott & Mills' 'Chip 'o the Old Block" companv is ilaving it. K. ö. Scott 13 a clever actor, ind considering tlie faet that he has only played bis present part a weck, he does remarkably well with tlie difficult üweedisb dialect, and in time will have completelymasteredit. Hi.smake uplast night was a splendid one, and his aptearance ou the stage was the signal for )oisterous applause. Marie Heath is vith tlie coQipany.'playing the soubrette iart of Genie Diinple. Miss Heath is a rery clever little woman, and caught the IOU86 last night with her actiut; and ïugiuy:. aaie uonnouy, as ilrs. Jjridgt O'Flannigan, and Belle Barron as Mrs. Agnea Jordán, filled their respective parta arcrptalily. A. ,W. Ferinont, as the (irst heavy villian, Paul Jones, would be good if he did not swagger so. He has a dreadíul swagger, which should be given a severe course of training. The remainder of the compauy is fair. The play has uudergone some overhauling in the way of clianging lines, etc, since last seen here, and for the better if anything. Judging f rom the reception it received last night, it should do a big business this week.
