THAT San Francisco is not averse to
paying for a good show, the receipts
at the Columbia box office amply tes
tify. There is not a seat in the
house to bo had for "When We Were
Twenty-one," played by Maxine Elliott
and Nat Goodwin. This sparkling and
tender comedy of Haddon . Chambers is
possibly the most artistic play presented
here this season. The staging and inter
pretation leave absolutely nothing to be
desired. "When We Were Twenty-one"
will be the Columbia bill for next week
At the California Mr. James Neill and
nis talented company of players present a
varied programme for the week. This
afternoon by special request an extra
matinee will be given at which "Captain
Lettarblair" will be presented. To
night "A Bachelor's Romance" will be
played and •"Captain Swift" will be given
on Friday and baturday nights and ai the
Saturday matinee, which will be the fare
well performances of this admirable com
pany. Next week Dunne & Ryley's "all
star cast" with Hoyt's "A Rag Baby"
will open at the California. Tnis com
pany will play all of Hoyt's . standard
tarces during their season of ten weeks.
Among the performers are Mary Marble,
Bessie Tannahill, Lizzie Kirwan, Marion
Gunning, Maude Courtenay, Philip H. Ry
ley, Tony Hart, John W. Dunne, Matthews
and Bulger, Wiseman's Serenaders, an
excellent male quaret; the eight Mascots
and the "pony ballet," the success of
••The Man ln the Moon" in New York last
"The Three Guardsmen" at the Tivoli is
nightly iilling the house. The sabot
dance, with Ferris Hartman as a tow
haired flshermalden, is irresistibly funny,
and there Is an educated donkey in the
cast which arouses much merriment. The
singing by Frances Graham of "So Pure,
So Sweet, So Fair" Is much admired. "The
Geisha" and other popular operas are in
course of preparation and Edwin Stevens,
who has returned to the city, will appear
shortly upon the boards at this house.
Clyde Fitch's domestic comedy, "A Su
pernous Husband," is the Alcazar pro
gramme for the week. Florence Roberts'
"Sapho" will be the attraction next week.
The Orpheum presents an especially at
tractive programme this week. Miss Lil
lian Burkhart's refined and altogether
satisfactory performance continues to give
much pleasure. Her dainty humor and
keen appreciation incite the hope that
some day she may lay hands on a play
which will allow full scope for her capa
bilities. Ezra Kendall, in the third week
of his engagement, still commands a
hearty Interest and the rest of the bill is
all variously good. ¦ .
The Lambardi Opera Quartet and SIgnor
Abramoff. appear in acts from' "Lucia"
and "The Huguenots" at Fischer's this

YOUNG woman's life may be the
Jl cost of a fire .that occurred In the
jj \rear of the dwelling at 1900 Mission
street yesterday afternoon shortly
before 5 o'clock. Miss Emily Peres, who,
with her parents, occupies the dwelling,
was probably fatally burned. , Charles
Keeslng. .who was unintentionally the
cause Of the young woman being burned
and whose subsequent prompt action
Eaved her from being - roasted to death
before the eyes of the startled onlookers,
was also painfully . burned on the hands
and arms and the agony occasioned by his
hurts completely prostrated him for sev
eral hours. • '
Just how the fire that resulted so se
riously started is not known. Shortly be
fore 6 o'clock a young man ran Into the
store at the corner of Fifteenth and Mis
sion streets where Keesing is employed,
and shouted that the flat overhead was
ablaze. Keesing ran to. the rear and up
the back stairs. Just as he reached the
scene of the fire Miss Peres ran. into the
yard. Keeslng caught up • a can of oil,
around which the lire was beginning to
lick Its way, and- hurled it through the
door. It exploded In midair and the blaz
ing contents completely enveloped Miss
Peres.. • -
With a scream of terror the young nro-
man rushed through the rear door of the
store and toward the street. Keeslng
turned from the fire -and^'hurrled to her
assistance. Just as she 'reached the side
walk her limbs cave way and she sank to
the sidewalk. Her clothing was ln flames
from bust to ankles, but Keeslng grasped
her, and carrying her. to -a water trough
near the curb, completely Immersed her,
thus extinguishing the flames that en
veloped her. He then, with the assistance
of a bystander, carried her to the flat
above, the- rear of which was still burn-
Ing. . ¦ ¦.¦¦¦-¦•¦..- ¦:..-•.
An alarm was sounded and ¦ when the
streams were finally playing on the flames
Keesing turned his attention to his, own
Injuries. By this time they, had become
so painful that the patrol wagon was
summoned and the Injured man was taken
to the Receiving. Hospital. There his
burns were dressed and under the-influ
ence of a sedative he rested; at the hos
pital for several hours and was then sent
to his. home,. 790 Ellis street.',- . .
As soon as the flames were extinguished
-at the Peres • home Dr. Alderman was
¦summoned from the Railroad -Hospital' to
care for the young woman. She had re
gained her consciousness - a few minutes
after the accident and her suffering was
Intense. Her condition Is critical. .The
damage to the. dwelling is not great, but
for a time the flames threatened to de
stroy It and adjoining properties. :;

The most . Interest v aroused by the
Meade's arrival of course centers about
General Otis, who is on his way to Wash
ington burdened with portentous mat
ters for the cbnsideratlon of the Presi
dent, before whom he is to appear as soon
as 'he can reach him. General Otis Is in
good health, according to 'reports from
the ship last night. His one paramount
desire at present Is to get East in a
hurry. Unjess some special dispensation
is made permitting him to land he will not
commence his" overland Journey very
soon. Special efforts will be made to get
him ashore without long delay.
There are forty-nine cabin passengers on
the Meade and 134 in the steerage. She
carries. 112 dead bodies. There was one
death on the way over.
Federal Quarantine Officer Klnyoun
stated last night that he did not know
how long the Meade would be in quaran
tine, nor when General Otis would land.
General Otis returns to America for a
much-needed rest after nearly two years'
absence on probably the most arduous
and trying duty that fell to the lot of any
officer engaged in the Spanish or Phil
ippine wars. At ¦ the outbreak of the
Spanish-American war General Otis, then
a brigadier was acting as president of tho
court-martial engaged in the trial of Cap
tain Oberlin M. Carter, at Savannah, Ga.
On May 2S, 1898, he was 'commissioned ma
jor general of volunteers and assigned to
duty as commander of the Department of
the Pacific. On July 23 he sailed from San
Francisco for Manila with reinforcements
for General Merrltt, and when that offlcar
was ordered home in September following
General Otis succeeded : him . as com
mander-in-chief of the American forces
in the Philippines and Governor General
of the islands. In that capacity he had
control of the very delicate relations with
Acutnaldo and his people, which were fin
ally ruptured on- February 4 of last. year
by the Filipino attack on the Americans
at Manila. The war which was then be
gun, and has continued' ever, since, was
directed generally and in detail by Gen
eral Otis from Manila, .where he resided
in the palace of the late Spanish Governor
Generaly while at>the same time he was
perfecting and inaugurating a system of
civil government for such parts of the isl
ands as -came under .American control.
That the work was done to the satisfac
tion of the President, and his Cabinet Is
shown by the fact ; that he was kept at
his post until his health forced him to ask
for.leave of absence:
. ; General Otis is a little over 62 years of
age, having been born; March 25, 1S38, at
Frederick, Md.; He studied and practiced
law for two years "when 'he entered th<3
army" as captain of the One Hundred and
Fortieth New York Volunteers, Septem
ber 13, 18C2, He served : through the cam
paigns of the Army of the Potomac with
distinction, winning brevet; brigadier gen
eralship.'and later being: made lieutenant
colonel of - the Twenty-second United
States Infantry.. He served in the cam
paigns against Sitting Bull and was large
ly Instrumental Mn bringing that chief to
terms. On March ! 31, < 1880, he ,. was 'made
colonel - of the Twentieth Infantry, and
November 23, 1S93." commissioned brigadier
general aver the heads of several officers
of much longer standing ln the service.
