were brought In after the tent
was jammed and many stood outside-

The play has been given in Sa

was well given, of course, but last
night made th others look like
something else. Certainly it does
not take much scenery to put a big
play across that is, scenery any
where but in the players mental
horizon. The Keighley players
last night have not slept their way
through life; one would believe
that they got up of nights and
play in relays to perfect their pre

Famous Gold Ship Will
Be Sold for Ten Dollars
SAN FRANCISCO, July 29. -
Permission to sell for $10 tho
steamer Humboldt, one of the
famous ships of the Klondike
gold rusb of 1898, was granted
by Judge Cabanlss of the superior
court here today- ;
The vessel belongs to the estate
of the late Adolph Ottinger, and
Millard Ottinger, his son, petition
ed the court for permission to sell,
declaring the Humboldt was en
tailing a loss to the estate of
$1,200 a month.
As, under court procedure, it
would be impossible to give the
vessel away, Ottinger - said he
asked permission to sell it for a
nominal : sum.
The Humboldt, a wooden ves
sel of 1,076 tons, in recent years
has been used in the coastwise
lumber trade. She was built in
Eureka, Cat, in 1896 and has been
tied up here many months because
