presentation of -Pillars of Society" at
"lacked the sensibilities of the writer
"yesterday afternoon. For its serene,
unclouded, sun touched beauty Mrs.
-.Fisko's delineation of lonely Lona Hes
' jsel, the prophetess of all that's best in
.Ibsen's drama, will remain a rebuke to
,-tnany previous enthusiasms which her
-.portraiture pales. I mean that Mrs.
'Fieke's presentation yesterday after
."l>oon was so flawless that one who has
'..to write about it feels keen resentment
-. tllat he has somewhere or other,
• preserved a superlative adjective or two
.'with which to distinguish the descrip
i: tio'n.
'._ Gray, gloomy Ibsen — the seer of hope
'pessnen and despair, the muckraker in
'•:*'l!>« field of philosophic drama — for once
.'Alas let the sunshine in. It floods the
.. : -'Xar\vc-g:an seaport town; it sparkles
\u25a0;-pfr the water; it refreshes the beholder
"•'and warms' the heart. It is splendid.
-And such tatire! Such a raking over
i*«>t liyptK-risy! Such a commentary on
:t*>« small vices which make hwnanity
' miserable ! If there were a national
..'ih'eater established, I woijld earnestly
.-urge the .presentation of '"The Pillars of
.-Society" twice^a year for the benefit of
': the public -consciousness, the advantage
•of -public health and the encouragement
.-of. other dramatists who seek, some
times fruitlessly, for the recipe of an
. entertaining play.
;*4«HT LET IX
T should say to the ardent Ibsenite
that many Ibsen specialists regard
"The Pillars of Society" as one of the
jgrte&t Norwegian's weakest. Perhaps
they are right. The admirer of
.. "Ghosts," as a staged spectacle, would
liardly enjoy the light that is shed on
?*The Pillars of Society."
."What have you returned for?" they
.ask of Lona, who arrives suddenly from
America.
.;\u25a0 "To let the sunlight in," she replies,
.'pulling: the curtains from before the
• windows that some of God's sunlight
phall" stream into the narrow, bigoted
\u25a0environment where she proposes to
. spread some of "his truth.
.. That is t^ie theme of the play. It is
an attack on hypocrisy; It is a treatise
• c>n the futility of deception; it is a
giant's fisted blow at sham. It is all
this, secondarily. It Is a play first. As
'such Mrs. Fiske sees it. The ethics take
'.care of themselves. There is no preach
ing, though there is much talk. The
tali is to a point and there is a shud
«3<?ry climax as early as the second act.
The third act is still better, and the
iourth art, wherein Mrs. Fiske as Lona
has little to do but «=lt and clap her
hands at the victory Bernick. has -won
• ever himself, is a most adroit mixture
\u25a0 of tragic suggestion resolving in com
edy and oadenced with seriousness.
VICTORY FOR I.OKA
For 15 years Bernick has been living
-a lie. H* 1 lias become a pillar of society
.in Wa little Norwegian conynunity, and
' he is associated with others of his ilk —
\u25a0 respectable rascals, opportunists, crea
•tures of environment. Lona, whom he
"has wronged, and Johan, whose good
name he has stolen, return suddenly
from America, The struggle ensues.
Bernick seeks to save his reputation.
Lona seeks to save his soul. Lona
wir\s through a. series of cumulative
episodes, which in their quiet intensity
remind one of nothing more than the
;tragic stillness of a death room.
ttolbrook Blinn, according to the exi
gencies of the *;lay, is really the lead
ing player. li!e assumes the role of
Bernick, and his force and imagination,
his deft appreciation of his difficult and
tineq\rivocal part are sufficient to place
him high up in the ranks of our most
honored players.
. • Of Mrs. Fiske it is only possible to
say that she supplies in "Pillars of So
ciety" additional proof that there is
no actress on the American stage to
day who is at once so splendid an orna
*.ment and so potent an influence .for
• good as she.
The support accorded Mrs. Fiske was
perfect v.-Jthin a shade of the miracu
lous.
COURT ASKED TO TAKE
STOWAWAYS OFF SHIP
Habeas Corpus Writ Granted
Men Held on Steamer
* In an attempt to aid Xicolai Waslal
and Pietro Milovlch, Russian Hebrews,
in their plan to steal free transpor*
tation from Honolulu to San Francisco.
Attorney Henry F. Marshall yesterday
applied to the superior court for a
\u25a0writ of habeas corpus In behalf of the
two men. They stowed away on the
Sierra, which arrived at this port from
Honolulu Tuesday. \u25a0. ,
The petition filed, by; Marshall says
the stowaways were passed by the Im
migration authorities, but. that Cap
tain Houdlette of the Sierra is keeping
them aboard the vessel and threatens
to carry them back to Honolulu when
the ship sails Saturday.
Judge Troutt issued the writ - and
ordered the stowaways produced in his
court Friday at ,2 o'clock. < This Is the
first time in San Francisco. that a writ
of habeas corpus has been ; resorted to
in order, to take stowaways from a
chip.

HACKETT TO STAR
AT THE ALCAZAR
Actor Has Distinction of Giving
Only Recent Sunday Per=
formance in Boston
Miss Henrietta Crossman to
Play "Anti'Matrimphy" in
New York in September" ;
James \u25a0K. 'Hackett, who begins a
stock starring .season at the Alcazar
theater next Monday night, has the dis
tinction of being the. only actor of re
cent years who has appeared at_a Bos
ton theater on Sunday night. If hap
pened in 1906 at the Tremont "theater. He
played "The Walls " "of ' Jericho" "In
wliich he at that time, was starring.
The occasion was. a .benefitVperform
ance and the humanitarian rieeds; of
the case were what caused the authori
ties to let a play proceed, contrary. to
precedent, on the Sabbath. The, cause?
San Francisco! Hackett played "The
Walls of Jericho" at the Tremont the
ater on the Sunday night • following:" the
April disaster in this city, and $2,-_'oo
was realized, and shipped west to us.
"There was no objection to' that Sun
day performance in prim Boston," says'
Hackett. • ' . - : .^

September, she will have as 'her dra
matic offering, her. • present , vehicle,
"An ti -Matrimony," the comedy of Percy
MacKaye, which has delighted the
western states. The actress must be
given credit for her daring. She delib
erately violated all the laws of the
atrics by taking- a new play, by an
American author,- and going west -with
it. In every other instance on record
the play has been first tried either in
New York or Chicago, and then, having
demonstrated Its worth, was taken "on
the road." This method of procedure
did not meet with Miss Crosman's
views. She was going west and she de
termined to go to the expense of pro
ducing a new play thesuccess of which
was entirely problematical.
Like Caesar, Miss Crosman came,
saw and conquered. She has . proved
that she knows a 'good thing when she
sees it, for her new play Tis: pronounced
the funniest comedy oT the last" ten
years, and MacKaye -has -jumped -into
the foremost class of playwrights." ./.He
has also proved that there is some one
else besides the late. Clyde Fltch-who
can dramatize social problems of today
and yet lay claim to being an ' American
born.

Mrs; Fiske's success' yesterday after
noon in "The PiHars of Society" re
sulted In the announcement that. she
will appear in three more performances
of - the Ibsen drama— next - Monday

Annette Kellerman is said to be one
of the greatest "box office" s attractions
on the vaudeville stage. ""That means
that she entices more buyers to the
wicket where seats are sold than other
players. Certainly she is' one of- the
best exploited personages before the
public. The most iniimate. of, details
concerning herself : ls not too insignifi
cant to be spread by her/ publicity
agents. For instance, I am 'informed,
in connection with- the. -fact -'that .-she
is to appear at the Orpheum July- 24;
that she Is 22 years , of age; - the most
particularly and correctly ; formed
woman in tne world; \ that she; weighs
\Z~ pounds, is 64.5 .inches; tall .when
she stands up and 34.6 Aches when she
sits down; her knee Is 16.3 inches'above
the floor, her head measures; 21.3 inches,
chest 33.1. : expanded /"chest- ,35.8;-: her
ninth rib 32.7 inches;, waist: 26.2 Inches,
hips 37.8, thigh 22.2. knee 14, calf 13,
ankle 7.7. instep 8.7, upper arm 12, and
so on to such other, items of identifica
tion as that the stretch of her arms
measures 65. Inches. .. ,
Miss Kellerman \u25a0 is. ;\u25a0 said. -to •; attribute,
her health and physique! to» swimming
and dancing, and says that when she
was a< little girl; she .was a. cripple.
Her legs turned In. Now they do not,
and Professor Dudley, Sargent of
yard university has I been-; quoted Jas
saying that "Miss Kellerman possesses
an all round development, superior to
any woman I have ever' neen." . .
After her graduation from the high
schools of Australia her parents ! gave
her further education : under ~$ private
tutors, and ,in . consequence! of .this
learning she has appeared frequently, as
a public lecturer.. At the Orpheum she
will swim and 'dive.* 1 -?>\u25a0\u25a0*-. r ;-C" ''A :•'-'\u25a0}

NO DELAY FOR
SPRING VALLEY
Final Argument in Rate Case
AVill^e Heard on
August 8v
The final argument in the Spring
valley rate case is to be held before
Judge Farrington of the federal cir
cuit court August S. An intimation
made at the Monday meeting of the
board of supervisors, by. Supervisor
Walsh .that the city, attorney's office
might have Joeen remiss in forwarding
the case was indignantly denied yes
terday by Assistant City Attorney John
Xourse' for City Attorney 'Long, who
was absent in Santa Cruz. Walsh re
ferred to Attorney. E. J. McCutchen's
statements on behalf of the company
made atjrate hearings of the' board
that" the Spring Valley company had
;been: ."ready to proceed" with the case.
.Walsh then wanted to know If it
wouldn't be a. good tiling to get an at
torney who would make more progress
than seemed ;to attend the efforts of
the city. attorney.
"Judge - Farrington offered to have
the final oral argument in the Spring
Valley case .either on July 20 or
August S," statqd Nourse yesterday.
"Attorney MteCutchen said he could not
well agree _to the July date, as lie had
a ease in Los Angeles then. At his re
quest, not ours, August 8 was then
fixed upon. . Later McCutchen tele
graphed to Judge Farrington asking a
postponement ' beyond August' 8 and
suggesting v date in September. We
have today received a letter from Judge
Farrington stating that August ,8 is
agreeable to him but that a date In
September is -Impossible, and that the
matter must go over to October or No
vember if postponed beyond August.
• "The case will come up before Judge
Van Fleet next Monday, to. set the date
for the hearing. We, shall ask that
August 8 be fixed upon, and I under
stand Attorney McCutchen will not op
pose this, as he had agreed to tt be
fore." ; . * . / . ";:
Supervisor Walsh stated yesterday
that no intimation was made to him
tha^ City Attorney Ldng had delayed
the case, except that McCutchen had
Insisted the .Spring Valley company
was "ready to proceed."
He disclaimed any Intent to criticise
Long's conduct of the case and stated
he' had thought it perhaps, might be
advisable to give the city attorney's of
fice another assistant or two to aid in
disposing, of the mass of litigation
piled upon it.
Company to Attack Suit
An affidavit was filed' with the coun
ty clerk yesterday by W. B. .Bourn,
president of the Hpring Valley water
company, stating that suit had been
begun in the federal count to enjoin
the city from collecting the rates fixed
by the board of supervisors two weeks
ago. " \
This affidavit' will be used in connec
tion with the action begun, in the
superior court by Attorney Daniel
o'Con.nell upon which Judge Conley is
sued ari order compelling the corpora
tion to deliver water to any citizen
willing to pay the new rates.
' It is understood that the attorneys
for the corporation will move to dis
miss the superior court action on the
ground that the same subject is in
volved in the federal suit.

Feet So Sore
Couldn't Walk
Down Stairs—
TIZ Cured Her Quick
If you have sore feet, tired feet,
sweaty feet, lame feet, tender feet,
smelly feet, corns, callouses or bunions,
read what happened to Mrs. Crockett
of Jeffersonvllle. TIZ DID IT. Mr.
Crockett says: -After the »econU treat-
ment she walked downstairs one foot
at a time. Sne has not been »Me -to
walk' downstair* before In past nve
yrars, except by stcpi»ins dovru oa each
»tcp with one foot at a time. This Is
remarkable. Send five more boxes.**
No matter what ails your feet or
: what under heaven you have used with-
! out getting relief.. Just use TIZ. Its
different. It acts right off. It cures
\u25a0 sore feet to stay, cured. It's the only
foot remedy ever made which acts on
the principle of drawing out all the
poisonous exudations which cause sore
feet. Powders and other remedies
merely clog up the pores. TIZ cleans
them out and keeps them clean. You
will feel better the first time it's used.
Use it a week and you can forget you
ever had sore feet. There is nothing on
earth that can compare with it. T I Z

MODERN HAIR DRESSING
has played havoc with the tresses of
the fair sex, and druggists everywhere
Comment on the fact that they are
selling large • quantities -of sage for
making the old-fashioned "sage tea."
such as was used by our grand-
mothers for promoting the growth of
their hair and restoring its natural
color. The demand for this well-
known herb for this purpose has been
so great that one manufacturer has
taken advantage of the fact, and has
placed on the market an ideal "sa^e
tea," containing sulphur, a valuable
remedy for dandruff and scalp rashes
and irritations. This preparation,
which is called Wyeth's Sage and Sul-
phur, is sold by all leading druggists
for 50 cents and $1 a bottle, or will be
sent direct by the Wyeth Chemical
Company, 74 Cortlandt St., New York
