RAGTIME MORALITIES OF CLORINDA
SERVE MISS SELIGMAN HAPPILY
"A Lady of Quality," Who Is Interesting Theater-Goers at the
Grand Opera-House, Is an Impossible Sort of Person If Taken
Seriously — New Year Will Be' Ushered In With Piays of Merit
By Guisard.
1JUST dropped in,"in a friendly sort of
way," to see an act of "Carmen"
last Sunday night at the Grand
Opera-house, and found an audi
ence as large as a Calve house en
joying Miss Seligman'B conception of the
sultry heroine. The house looked tarn
last night in comparison, though tiie
ragtime moralities of the strenuous
Clorinda in "A Lady of Quality serve
Miss Seligman with equal felicity
On the whole it "was a neat and well
balanced performance that was given by
the house company and the reigning
luminary last night. It wanted the soft
pedal badly in places, and sagged here and
there, but in the Tump was both creditable
and enjoyable, and was well applauded

is an impossible sort of person when she
is considered seriously. It is therefore
the part of wisdom to take her— if you
take her at all-lightly. She is a pretty
good and plausible sort— as they went in
those days— for the first acts, but the
thr-ad ot the likely gets pretty well
later. A bonny tomboy brought
up by her fox-hunting papa to swear,
drink and hunt with the best of his sex
may not be the prettiest spectacle, but she
has happened. Also, having sown her
wild oats like a gentleman she has fre
quently repented.
But I doubt me much if she has ever
pinked a rejected lover— after attaining
to British matronhood— stuffed him un
der the couch and held a pink tea over
his unlamented remains. Also it is not
the habit of Dukes of the common or
garden variety to tell the lady, when she
casually informs them of the little cir
cumstance, that they love her just the
same. Which is all why it Is better not
to take "A Lady of Quality" too seri
°UMiVs Selieman has the name role and
succeeds in lifting the part to conviction
occasionally. Herschel Mayall plays the
villain with a pretty accent and without
his usual amplitudinous sighs. William
Bernard has a part to fit as Lord Hum
phrey Ware, H. D. Byers does a sturdy
bit of work as Sir Cnristopher Croweil
and Fred J. Butler is sufficient unto the
needs of his part as Sir Geoffrey Wildairs.
Gilbert Gardner is excellent as the chap
lain, nd later s Twemlow, and Charles
Waldron Is a good Duke, looking the part
to satisfaction. Elsa von Braham is a
graceful Lady Betty and Caroline Francis
Cooke pleases as Anne Wildairs.
They have mounted the piece well at
the Grand Opera-house and it should
serve an evening's turn. Next week is
the last week of Miss Seligman's engage
ment and for the farewell programme
will be given a grand double bill, Gilbert's
"Comedy and Tragedy" and a dramatiza
tion of "Caval'.eria Rusticana.".

EXTEND TIME TO SANTA FE
Corporation Attorneys Have Not De

Oil Case.
The Railroad Commissioners at a meet
ing yesterday granted the Santa Fe Rail
way an extension of time in reference to
filing papers, should they wish to reopen
the oil rate case from Bakersfield to this
city.
When the Commissioners recently hand
ed down their decision the Santa Fe Rail
way officials were served with a copy of
the order several days before the Southern
Pacific officers. The Santa Fe had until
January 2 to decide whether it was satis
fied with the decision. It was granted an
extension of time until January 8 yester
day, the same as the Southern Pacific, to
settle whether It wishes to reor»en the
case.
The Santa Fe and Southern Pacilic

whether they will again fight the case or.
not.

week at the Alcazar. Judging from the
crowded audience of last evening it is
sure of a good run. All the characters
were well sustained and Frank Bacon, as
Charley's Aunt, excelled himself.
M. L. Alsop, who took the part of Jack
Chesney, made an ideal lover, while Hen
ry Shumer, as Charley Wykeham, was
the typical college undergraduate. Both
helped in a : great measure to make the
play the success it Is, while Paul Gerson,
as Colonel Sir Francis Chesney, Bart.,
and Miss Marie Howe,, as Donna Lucia
d'Alvadorez, were excellent in their parts.
Miss Orza Waldrop, who played the in
genue, made a hit In her little speeches.
As Ela Delahay she was simple and nat
ural and carried the audience with her.
Central.
"The Two Sisters" at its initial per
formance at the Central Theater last
night scored a pronounced hit. The play
is the best " that the company has pro
duced in several months and a most suc- y
cessful run is assured if the enthusiasm of
last night's audience is any criterion.
The villain, the hero, the wronged girl,
a promiscuous use of firearms and the
other usual characteristics of the melo
drama are all present; but, as is unusual,
they add to rather than detract from the
proper rendering of the play. Some of
the scenes are laughable in the extreme
and the players carry the thing forward
with so much vim that interest never lags
for a moment.
Hallett Thompson, Stanley Ross, James
Corrigan, Annette Marshall, Agnes
Ranken and Margaret Marshall all ap
pear at their best and are excellently sup
ported by the remainder of the cast.
"The Girl with the Naughty, Naughty
Wink," sung by Georgie Cooper, assisted
by Mae Keene, Zora Irwin, Minnie Chap
man and Helen Day, received an amount
of applause that has seldom been equaled
at the Central.
California.
Black Patti and her troubadours are
giving a good show to good houses, and
while no cartloads of flowers are being
hoisted over the footlights there are
trainloadsof applause. While Ernest Ho
fean, the best colored minstrel . on the
stage, is missed from the troupe this sea
son, his place is satisfactorily filled by
John Rucker, "the Alabama Blossom."
Rucker is funny by nature and refined by
art, and is by all odds the best number
in the show. The Watts come next— a
clever pair of singers and dancers. The
cake-walk is very funny — funnier than one
would expect, combining as it does the
two extremes of grace and grotesqueness.
The performance has not a dull moment
in it and closes with an operatic pot
pourri, the "Inflammatus," from Rossini's
"Stabat Mater," being especially well
sung, followed by a selection from the
third act of "Martha."
Orpheum.
To the audience at the Orpheum Thea
ter last night Joe Welch's Yiddish study

there were other turns which attracted
as much attention and as much applause.

COLONEL EVANS
SAYS NOTHING
Declines to Affirm or
Deny Story of His
Promotion.
Wells, Fargo & Co. Directors
to Elect President
Thursday.
: The. exclusive publication by The Call
of the announcement that Colonel Dudley
Evans'' would be elected as the successor
of John J. Valentine to the presidency of
Wells, Fargo & Co.'s r Express was the
leading topic of conversation in business
circles yesterday. Inasmuch as it was
confidently expected that the honor would
fall to a San Francisco man the news that
Valentine's mantle of office would be
thrust upon the shoulders of a New Ydrk
official of the company was a revelation,
to many connected with the big* corpora
tion.
The disclosure was the subject of more
than one conference among the directors
during the day. These gentlemen affected
to know nothing of the matter when ques
tioned, and all declared that the "story
was premature and therefore untrust
worthy. They did not deny the truth of
the statement that Colonel Evanf was
the coming man, but none could be found
who was willing to confirm the report
that the Huntington influence in Evans
interest had asserted itself and that his
selection for the responsible post was a
certainty.
It is well known that the Southern Fa
cific holds heavy interests in Wells, Fargo
& Co?, and that H. E. Huntington was
made a director of the express company
in order that those interests might not
suffer. Since Huntington's election as
director the Southern Pacific has changed
hands, and E. H. Harriman is now its
guiding spirit. It happens that Harri
man and Evans are quite friendly, and
when Valentine's illness reached the fatal
stage the question of selecting his suc
cessor was at once taken up. Colonel
Evans was sent to this city at once to
look after affairs, and following him came
letters signed by Huntington to several
■directors requesting their indorsement of
Evans for the position: It was a bitter
pill for some of them to swallow, but as
one director said yesterday: "The influ
ence of wealth and power is not to be
overcome." This means that the influ
ence of the Southern Pacific in the inter
nal affairs of Wells, Fargo & Co. will not
be ignored when the matter of selecting
Valentine's successor finally comes up for
action at the forthcoming meeting of the
board.
Directors Meet on Thursday.
Although efforts were made by the
Wells, Fargo & Co. officials to conceal
the fact, it was learned from authorita
tive sources that the directors would meet
next Thursday at which time the va
cancy on the board as well as in the
presidency will be filled. It was at first
intended to meet to-day, but circum
stances arose which rendered a postpone
ment imperative.
While many employes of the express
company concede that Evans will be the
next president, they scout the allegation
that the main offices of the company will
be removed to New York. They claim
this action would disorganize the com
pany in that its heaviest interests are
centered in the West. The argument is
advanced that the company recently went
to the expense of erecting a large office
building and that the removal of the
main offices would be bad business pol
icy. Should this action be taken the
building must inevitably prove a losing
investment, something the directors will
not permit. What effect these arguments
will have upon the Eastern influences
now at work remains to be seen. It is
certain that the contemplated removal
will meet with opposition, even though it
be advocated by the incoming president.
The election of Colonel Evans to the
presidency may prove to be of advan
tage to the company's interests, but to
those in the line of advancement, had the
honor fallen upon either Colonel Gray or
Homer S. King, it will be as a wet blan
ket on a frosty morning. The possibility
that one of the gentlemen named would
capture the prize had given birth to hopes
in the breasts of many departmental man
agers that they would be Advanced a step
with the coming of the new year. The
latest developments, however, have sent
these hopes aglimmering and the faces
cf many employes are as somber as the
sable decorations which adorn the com
pany's building. That the election of Col
onel Evans means changes in the official
staff is regarded as a certainty. What
these .changes may be is now a matter of
grave concern to all the employes con
cerned.
Officials Are Reticent.
Colonel Gray, first vice president of the
company, made the following statement
to a Call representative yesterday:
The announcement that Colonel Evans would
succeed the late John J. Valentine to the presi
dency of Wells, Fargo & Co. was quite prema
ture. I do not know how the report gained
currency. I know that the directors have not
authorized an announcement of the kind. No
call for a meeting of the board has been issued
by me. I will admit Colonel Evans Is a very
Influential man on the board of directors, and
Influence in all human affairs counts for much.
That is all 1 have to say concerning the mat
ter. .
Homer S. King, who was prominently
named as the probable successor to the
presidency of the company, declined to
discuss the matter of Evans' selection on
the ground that he knew nothing about
it. He said the directors would probably
settle the matter at their next meeting,
but he was unable to say when the meet
ing would be held. The subject of the re
ported removal of the main office of the
corporation to the East he refused to talk
of for publication.
Colonel Evans was se'een at the Palace
Hotel last night and asked to give his
views concerning his impending elevation
to the presidency. He replied that he
could not discuss the matter in advance
of any action the directors might take.
He declined either to affirm or deny the
report published by The Call. In reply
to the question as to the date of the
forthcoming meeting he said he did not
know the precise time. It might be next
Thursday and it might be some other
Thursday. With this the interview came
to a close.
The numerous friends of Colonel Evans
extended him their congratulations yes
terday. As he made no denial of t?ie
question at issue to any of these, the in
ference is plain that he thoroughly
understands the situation; and his 're
fusal to discuss the same for publication,
therefore, is based on grounds of delicacy
and expediency.

MARY MORGHAN
GETS DIVORCE
Judge Seawell Separates
the Oyster Man and
His Wife.
Dressed in the very latest make of
tailor-made gowns, topped off by a brand
new sealskin jacket and the latest model
hat, Mrs. Mary B. Moraghan, who is su
ing James B. Moraghan for divorce on the
ground of neglect, looked everything but
a neglected, wife yesterday when she ap
peared in Judge Seawell' s court to tell her
tale of woe. She was accompanied by her
father, ei-Policeman Fay, who testified
in her behalf. Moraghan, the alleged ne
glectful husband, did- not put in an ap
pearance during the proceedings, but
poked his head in the doorway of the
court room after the trial and asked the
clerk what had been done to him. Clerk
Grimes informed him that Judge Seawell
had decreed that his wife should get a
divorce and $30 per month alimony and
that he was to have the custody of the
minor child. Mr. Moraghan, evidently
greatly pleased, said "Thank you" and
withdrew his head from the court room.
This settles the marital differences of
the oyster man and his spouse. Twice be
fore Mrs. Moraghan brought suit against
her husband, once for maintenance and
once for divorce, but on each occasion
the> settled their differences out of court.
Maud Nevill, or Maud Cheyney as she
claims she should be called, has secured
another attorney to prosecute her suit for
maintenance against Samuel W. Cheyney,
in th'e person of Henry C. McPike. When
Miss Nevill first commenced proceedings
she was represented by Attorney George
D. Collins, but the latter withdrew from
the case because his rlient accused him
of being derelict in his duties. Miss Nevill
appeared before Judge Sloss yesterday
morning with her new attorney and se
cured a continuance of the trial of her
suit until next Monday.
Miss May Blanche Goldstein is suing to
annul her marriage to Walter R. Huff, a
commercial traveler, on the ground that
Huff has another wife living. The plain
tiff claims that Huff represented to her
that he had been divorced from his first
wife six years ago.
Maggie K. Mason is suinp her husband,
F. M. Mason, a prosperous hardware mer
chant of Ukiah, for divorce oh the ground
of cruelty. The married life of the Masons
has been a stormy one. They were married
in Iowa in 1876, and have three children,
two of whom are of age. Mrs. Mason
says her husband treated her cruelly.
Mrs. Mason asks the court to award her
all the community property, which
amounts to about J5000.
Divorces were granted yesterday to El
len Burns from Frank Burns for extreme
cruelty, Helene Johnson from Peter Vic
tor Johnson for extreme cruelty, Lillie
Harrison from James Harrison for ex
treme cruelty, Katherme Frances Mahnke
from Charles S. Mahnke for extreme
cruelty and Mabel Annie Lawrence from
Willis Lawrence for desertion.
James W. Cook filed a suit for divorce
yesterday against Mary Cook for deser
tion.

At a meeting of the Clearing-house As
sociation held yesterday it was decided to
exchange the daily checks at 11:45 a. m.
excepting on Saturdays, when the ex
change will be made at 11 a. m. The
Clearing-house committee was given the
power to change the hour of exchange at
its- own discretion.

Kane's request for the custody of the
child was refused by Mrs. Kate B. Lake
and Miss Marguerite Lake, superin-<
tendents of the home. Kane then\
sought to obtain possession of the child
on a writ of habeas corpus. Mrs. Lake
promptly filed an objection to the. _&«£;.
render of the child and the matter was ~
heard before Judge Troutt, who continued
the hearing until Mrs. Lake's return
from her vacation.
Mrs. Williams has now taken the matter
in hand and in her petition she charges
Kane with having been derelict in the
performance of his duties as guardian.

guardian and that he is in no position to
perform such duties. V , ,

the care of Miss Seton is wit:!?"* founda
tion. U *"^W, O
Mrs. Williams further says that the~?P"
ciety of which Kane Is secretary is absCX,
lutely under his control and that upon**^
his failure to secure the child a systematic
effort to injure the home was made in
Chinatown by means of placards in which
the orders of the court were grossly mis
represented.
Mrs. Williams further alleges that Kane
wrote a letter to her in which he stated
that he was being importuned by the
Chinese Consul and others to take another
ward of his from the home and place her
In another home.
Mrs. Williams also charges Kane with
requesting her to allow Chan Ah Ting to
