"QUEEN ESTHER" IS PLAYED BEFORE PACKED HOUSE AT LYRIC THEATRE DOUGLAS, Oct 28.?The initial per formanco^of "Qaeen Esther" at the Lyric theatre last night scored a big success and gives promise of playing; to a packed house again tonight. The music Is excellent throughout'and the costumes and' special scenery* carry with them the atmostphere of the court and Oriental rulers of ancient times. The story of "Queen Esther" is tak en from the book of Esther In the Bi ble and tells of the rise of the Jewish maiden from obscurity to the highest position of a woman in the kingdom of the Medes and Perlsians, and of how she saved her,people from an nihilation at the hands of Haman, the chief advisor to King Ahasuerus. Mrs. L. B. Wright sang tho part of "Queen Esther" in a very pleasing manner, while the part of the King was sustained with dignity by F. R. Reynolds. Miss Elizabeth Hopper, as Zeresh. the wife of Haman, showed great histrionic ability coupled with an excellent votce. Haman as person ified by C. D Grler, was the cunning and ambitious prime minister in the i flesh. Dr. R. V. Ellis, as Mordecal, the Jew, loomed up like a profe&ional and Mrs. W. E. Cahill In the part of Mordecai's sister, sang several diffi cult solos very well. yrs. F. H. Le Noir. Mrs. F. M. Reynolds and Miss Luella Shaffer as the Merldan and Per sian Princesses and the Prophetess, were very good and Miss May Parker In the role of Beggar deserves special ? mention. All the others in the cast acquitted themselves creditably. The chorus worked well together and show ed none of the diffidence so common in amateur performances. The tri umphal march and scarf drill in the last act was very pretty. Mr. Robin son, the director, deserves a great deal of credit for the work accom plished In so short a time. A large number of the musical peo ple of Juneau were In the audience last night and a special ferry was run to Juneau after the performance. "Queen Esther" will be repeated at the_ Lyric Theatre under the auspices of the Douglas Island Women's Club. a A ; V We have confidence BOOSTING in Nyal's Products OUR BELIEF ?that's why we unhesitatingly rec ommend this meritorious merchandise to you.

Winn. tf.; i INDICTMENT FAILS AND CHENEY ASKS CLIENTS' DISMISSAL On the ground that the graml Jury failed to act upon two caaos ,trans ferred from Sitka recontly In which Tom Hobson and Goorgo Hobson were held to answer to the grand Jury, R. Cheney this morning moved that the men be dishcarged from the Feder al Jail where they have been conQned, and that the charges against them be dismissed. ?In opposing this motion, Assist ant District Attorney J. J. Reagan stated to the court that the coses would come up before the United States Commisisoner here on tho ground that under the recent act of the Territorial Legislature the crime of selling liquor to Indians has boen lowered from a felony to a mlsdemcan or and that tho offences of the Hob sons would be treated as a misde meanor, and tho trial held i tho com missioner's court. During the same session in which the grand Jury failed to act upon the case of the two Hobsons, It did Indict several others on the charge o fsell ing liquor to natives and of these two have pleaded guilty, one was convict ed by a Jury yesterday, and another is cn trial today. Mr. Cheney, holding that tho charge against the Hobsons should be dismiss ed on tho ground of tho grand Jury's1 failure to act upon it. argues furthorj that if the matter Is to be referred to a commissioner's court it can only be done by re-arresting the two men and starting all over again. And in case the matter does come up in the lower court Mr. Cheney argues that tho mat ter belongs at Sitka and not here. Judge Robert W. Jennings took the motion under advisement and will an nounce his decision tomorrow morn ing. NO HOPE FOR KETCHIKAN'S MISSING MEN ?+? Word received yesterday afternoon from Ketchikan Is that all hop?> of the discovery alive of Charles A. Clark, who had charge of the gas boat Tran ces R.. I. N. Irwin, of the United States fisheries service, and Mike De Costa, the cook, has been abandoned, though many boats, including the United States lighthouse tender Kukul and the forest boat Tahn, havo searched the waters in the vicinity of Chlcka men river and Belie island. The Ketchikan Progressive-Minor of Monday contains tho following con cerning the search for the missing men: The forest i service boat Tahn re turned last evening from the search of the missing gas boat Frances R., and Capt. Blodgett reports that the Creel found the Frances It ashore at tho mouth of the Chlckamon river yesterday morning, but found none of the party who were out with her. When the Tahn arrived on the scene the tide was In and the boat was entirely submerged, but when Messrs. Rocselle and Churchill found her, the pilot house was out of the water and they went on board but found no signs - of anyone, though they were unable to get down In the cabin. The boat's compass and ding ey were gone, indicating that the par ty had taken to the small boat after the larger one got into trouble. A search along the beach disclosed the fact that there had been a small camp plre for a short time and a stew pan belonging to the Frances R. was found near It. with the remains of a meal in it, also a mattress, which may have floated out of the pilot house. From the indications around the old camp fire they were unable to deter mine how many there were in the party that landed there. It Is feared that after making the 1 camp that they took to the small boat and tried to make Belle Island Hot Springs or the Roe Point Cannery and that they were capsized. An examination of the old cabins up on the Chlckamon river indicated! that they had not been occupied for several weeks and the cabins at the mouth of the Unyuk river yielded the same results. Tbe.Tahn left the Creel there and at next low tide they expected to be able to make a more thorough exam ination of the boat and learn wheth er the party took their guns and blankets with them when they desert ed the boat. Owing to the length of time they have been missing there is but little hope of finding them alive. This morning J. R. Heckman sent out the A. P A. boat Falcon, and George Roun senfel sent out the Olympic, to make a thorough search of the shore line for the party or wreckage of their small boat. As stated in Saturday's Progressive Miner, the Frances R. left Ketchikan on October 9th, in charge of "Sandy" Clark, with I. N. Irwin of the U. S. Fisheries Commission and Mike De Costa as cook on board intending to return in four days. Nothing more was seen or heard of them till the Tahn and Creel went out to search | for them with the above results.
