Black, Reed & Bingaman, to whom
the matter was submitted by ¥. W.

Incurred by the sale of San Francisco's
bonds subsequent to annexation in case
of consolidation.
The firm's letter says that if the
bonds are valid and are sold subse
quent to consolidation, "then and in
that event all property assessable for
city and county purposes within the
new consolidated city and county gov
ernment would be assessed for the
purpose of raising revenue to pay in
terest and principal of said bonds."
The letter in full follows:
"Agreeable to your request, we have
made a careful examination of the pro
posed initiative measure ta amend sec
tion 7, article 11, of the constitution of
the state of California, relating to the
formation of consolidated city and
county governments, in so fur as the
same may be applicable to any bonds
already authorized by the city and
county of San Francisco, but which
have not already been sold and may be
outstanding at the time of * possible
consolidation of the city and county
of San Francisco with other territory,
but may be thereafter sold.
■'Our conclusion is that if such bonds
be valid and if they are sold subse
quent to the time of any such con
solidation, then and in that event all
property assessable for city and county
purposes within tlje new consolidated
city and county government would be
assessed for tile purpose of raising

CHILD HAS CHANCE FOR
TWO DIFFERENT HOMES
Grandmother and Associated
Charities Willing to Provide
OAKLAND, Oct. 2.—Whether a home
with her grandmother, secured by a

for little Louise Trygg, aged 11 years,

by tht- Associated Charities was the
question before F. B. Ogden to

filled with liquor bottles whose con
tents she was said to have sampled,
and the objection to Mrs. Christ was
bajsed on that ground.
Mrs. Christ said that the child's par
ents were dead, that she had had
charge of the little girl all her life
and that she Is in a position to insure
a good home. The case was submitted.

PLAY OF GUNS
MAKES BIG HIT
Next to Howling Catling, Maclyn
Arbuckle Is the Star at
Columbia Theater
WALTER ANTHONY
"The Round Up" should be heard, not
discussed. It is a play of guns. I have
forgotten how many shots are fired in
the third act, but it is of record. Some
of the shots, as a matter of fact, were
fired after the curtain was down, but
there was no further need for noise on
the far side of the footlights. The audi
ence set up such a din of applause as to
make even the gatling gun a silent
partner in the success of the production.
Next to the gatling gun I would pick
Maclyn Arbuckle as the star of "The
Round Up." He is the sheriff of Pinal
county, Arizona, and be does wonders
for Edmond Day's play. Ir. Tact, Day's
drama Is inconceivable without Ar
buckle. He chases the Villain over the
blood stained plains, he arrives in the
nick of time whenever Playwright Day
puts a nick in his drama and he suc
ceeds in marrying off a sweet sojourner
from Kentucky-—Polly is her name—to
a somewhat worthless scamp, who in
the first act is nearly a murderer and
quite a thief.
"Slim" Hoover is the original optimist,
and it isn't his fault that he is sur
rounded by a desert. He makes It to
blossom as the rose, and everywhere he
sits an oasis of good humor and green
sentiment Iβ spread.
That Arbuckle accomplished realism
in his scenes is due half to his irre
pressible spirits and half to the audi
ence's disposition to believe in the fabu
lous sheriff.
What "The Round Up" would dot if it
were not for that disposition to believe
I hesitate to suggest. I think, however,
that it would close up.
Scenery—a panoramic view of "the
land of dead things"—cowboys, horses,
staid and unsteady, Indians, United
States soldiers, Indians on horseback,
a halfbreed villain who Iβ killed in the
last act, a romantic wife who gets her
husband back in the final act, a battle
under the hot skies of a brazen desert
and a romance or two constitute the
t main elements of "The Round Up."
The play has been a big success. It
seems destined to remain so. Just
why, only the stage carpenter, the
scenic artist and Arbuckle kno-w. It
seems certain that a. fashionable audi
ence likes good melodrama. "The
Round Up" is good melodrama, in
which the element of expense has be
come a pleasure with- the producers.
who have lavished . tons of scenery,
horses, gatling guns and Indians on
the presentation. If one likes melo
drama in the impressionable red, one
will like "The Round Up." If one
doesn't, it will not be the fault of the
producers. Meanwhile, Maclyn Ar
buckle plays the role of the frontier
sheriff with as much gusto and sub
jective enjoymerlt as though this were
the very beginning of his long career
in "The Round Up."
Grace Benham plays the role of Echo
Allen and succeeds in her difficult task
to this extent. She makes herself a
conspicuous character of culture and
refinement in a land of alkali. Polly
is played by Ethel yon Waldron with
such sincerity as to suggest that the
player, as well as the play, came far
from the golden west.

CHICKEN COOPS ARE
POOR KIND OF HELMET
Slats Are Smashed, Also His
Head, Says Plaintiff
OAKLAND, Oct. 2.—Chicken coops
make poor helmets, according to the
experience of Adolph Gunnarson, to
which he testified in Judge Ellsworth's
court today. Frank Rockford ts on
trial for hitting Gunnarson on the head
with a heavy machinist's hammer, the
charge being assault with a deadly
weapon.
"Rockford raised the hammer to
strike me," said Gunnarson, 'and I
caught up a small chicken coop. The
chicks flew in every direction when I
raised it. I held it over my head
and Rockford struck with the ham
mer, smashing the coop and knocking
me senseless."
Gunnarson'K father, Gustavus Gun
narson. and Rockford are neighbors in
the annexed district. Gunnaraon sent
his son to protest against the encroach
ment of the Rockford chickens when
the alleged attack occurred.
