Th recently enacted land law for
Alaska to meeting with much favor
among homeseekers, and a considera
ble rush to th southern portion of
that country, in the vicinity of Admir
alty and Prince of Wale Islands, where
the best land and timber are situated,
will probably result. Under the new
tow, a citizen can homestead 220 acres
of land wl'hout waiting for the gov
ernment survey, the tarllness of whlb
has heretofore prevented the land be
ing taken. The yellow cedar timber
growing there I described aa being a
very valuable article for future mar
kets, and the field Is regarded as a
first-class chance for speculation.
The three act comic opera "Little
Duke," was presented last night to a
packed house. . The performance, ev
ery part of which was acted by a local
amateur, waa remarkably well render
ed And waa well merited applause
throughout. The leads were ably sus
tained and the choruses gave efficient
support Mrs.. J. T Ross aa "Fabrice,"
the little duke, achieved over again the
success that is always hers. Her
voice and stature were perfectly adapt
ed for the character she portrayed and
her acting was up to the standard and
fitted well wltn her other admirable
qualities. The duchess, "Blanche de
Cambry," a done by Miss Sadie Suth
erland, v.ia highly appreciated by the
audience, the love wenes with Fabrl.-e,
her solo work and the various situa
tions of Aiilch she was principal being
effective Indeed. A feature of th
evening waa the ladles' quartette, Mis.
ses Bess Reed, May Utslnger, Amy
Lemon and Margaret Busey, In their
Spanish dance, both as to movement
and vocalization, those young ladles,
wer particularly well liked. While
everything and everybody were cer
tainly good. Mr. Frank Carnahan, lit
It said in all truthfullness, was consid
erably better than anything or any
body. "Frank Caranahan was swell,"
is doubtless what everyone who attend
ed the opera last evening, Is still say
ing. His voice, a high baritone, leaves
nothing to be desired and he acted, ap
parently, with as much ease as if he
had been doing light opera for the last
hundred years and never expected to
do anything else. Without any exag
geration, no vocalist, either local or
otherwise, who has ever appeared be
fore an Astoria audience had more rice
things said, about him than did Mr,
Carnahan for his really ' remarkable
rendering of "Fri mousse." He sang
Plnsutti's famous "Bedouin Love Song"
In the last act and then everybody
went wild. U was a fitting climax to
a perfect triumph The opera will be
repeated this evening. The admission-
has been reduced to SO cents to any
where In the house. No reserv jd scats.
