ANNETTE KELLERMAN TONIGHT
ANNETE KELLERMAN in "Neputne's Daughter" at the GRAND THEATRE TONIGHT
For an engagement limited to four performances?Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the playgoors
of this city will have an opportunity of witnessing ono of the greatest motion pictures ever projected on the
screen.
It had its premier in New York at the .Globe theatre where it is still running to capacity audiences and
should attain a record of three hundred performances.
Annette Kellerman who enacts the title role Is known throughout the world as one of the greatest diving
and swimming experts, has for many years been a headlincr both on the Keith and Orpheum Circuits. She is
also recognized among women as possessing a figure the measurement of which corresponds with Venus, of
immortal fame.
"Neptune's Daughter" was filmed on the shores of Bermuda, an ideal spot for the locale of a moving pic
ture play because of its wondrous flowers and picturesque scenery.
The story of this play briefly told Is that of Neptune, king of the sea, who with his people inhabit the
depths of the ocean. At the time of the play their preserves are encroached upon by fisher folk of King Will
lam's realm. A sister of Annette, a mermaid, aged six, is caught in the fisherman's net and being unable to ex
tricate herself, dies. Annette vows to have revenge on the slayers of her sister, seeks out "The Witch of the
Sea." and from her obtains a charm that will enable to become a mortal at will. How she plans to meet the
King, who she holds Is responsible for her troubles, and the result of their meeting is told in most graphic
manner.

ORE SHIPMENT
PLEASES DAWSON
One of the moat refreshing Items
of current news for Yukonors is that
within a fow days the first of a ship
ment of 1,500 tons of silver oro will
reach Dawson from tho Mayo camp.
This shipment will innko a load for
an ocoan steamship of no mean ca
pacity. When landod at tho smelter
in San Francisco it will make the
wise ones look over fhe horizon to
Yukon with jenewcd interest.
Not since the treasure ship Port
land sailed down the North Pacific
with her cargo of gold from tho first
Klondike cleanup has thoro been a
more promising new shipment from
(this territory. But this one cargo
of silver does not prove a camp, and
does not warrant a stampede. As
stated by arrivals this week from this
district, there is no labor In the Mayo
district for outsiders, and nothing op
ened up but the one prospect or mine.
However, the country is largo and
well mineralized, and thoro Is room
for prospectors. Men with outfits will
find as good opportunities there as
j anywhere. If others strike anything
similnr to what McWhortcr and Ait
ken havo on Galena croek, whence
comes this first big silver shipment,
! they will add vastly to the promise
of tho country. The opening of a
few good properties which will stand
thorough tests will mako a camp, and
a good one.
But is it too much to herald to the
world that a now and permanent camp
is located. However, tho indications
are sufficient to warrant men who can
secure tho supplies to follow up pros
pecting on the Yukon with real ear
nestness. Other good mineral pros
pects arc being tested near Dawson
and some In more remote parts of the
territory, and with a territory here
largo enough to embrace several. Eng
lands, and with such highly mineral
ized charactcrlstcs there can be no
doubt that tho hard working and per
sistent prospectors in timo will put
Yuyon In the class of steady hard
rock producers.?(Dawson News.)
ANCHORAGE CLAIMS
2,000 POPULATION
It is nothing less than rcmarkablo,
what brief space of time has
wrought in this particular part of the
great Territory of Alaska. What is
now a hustling, bustling center of ac
tivity officially designated as Anchor
age, was, but a year ago, the abid
ing placo of perhaps a half dozen
souls. Thomas H. Jeter, the homo
stoadcr, Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Whitney,
homesteaders, Forester McCulIough,
and former Forostor and Mrs. Brown
were the only permanent residents
of this placo at this time last year.
Now, the population will exceed two
thousand porsons Including those em
ployed on railroad worW~-(Cook In

MYSTERY SURROUNDS
DEATH Off CORDOVAN
The Goldflcld, Nov.. Dqlly Tribune,
of May 25, contains the following ac
count of the death of a former wo
man of Cordova, and her many friends
here will bo pained to learn of her
untimely demise: "The remains of
Mrs. George Gelgcr, wife of tho as
sistant superintendent of the Southern
Pacific Railway, wore found dead
in bed at Imily, have been shipped
to Blainville, Texas, for interment.
According to word from Winnemucca,
there is an air of mystery surround
ing the caso and it has been Intimat
ed from several sourcos that the af
fair is being hushed up, all of which
leads to tho opinion that Mrs. Geiger
committed suicide."
George Geiger was formerly super
intendent of the Copper River &
Northwestern Railroad.
