Benefit by Efforts of the
Young Thespians
Tickets are being sold rapidly and

<H.uraging numbers for the perform
ances of "The Gay Collegian," which
will be given Thursday, Friday and
Saturday evenings at the Central The

\u25a0>vas criprinally presented by the senior
class of the University of California at
thp Greek theater last May under the
r.ame of "The Chasers." Since then it
has b^en rewritten largely and It has
a laugh in every other line at least,
berides many lively tunes.
Fred Carlyle of the University of
O&liforr.ia has trained the dancers and
actors and they will give a perform
r.ni-<* wei! worth seeing.
Apart from the amusement to be
derived from "The Gay Collegian," the
audiences will have a double pleasure
because Mount St. Joseph's orphan asy
lum •will receive the proceeds, and no
institution could be more worthy.
When the orphanage in South San
Francisco was burned lart October the
sisters of charity and about 400 or
p'.ians were made homeless and bereft
of a.l their belongings. Much money is
needed for their relief and this is one
of the ways for the great public to

Granted Handsome Allowance,
Mrs. Anna Donahoe Comes
to Relief of Wife
Mrs. Anna Meloy Donahoe, widow of
Michael Donahoe, a wealthy oil oper
ator, was yesterday granted by Judge
Graham an allowance of $3,000 a month
from her late husband's estate. But
she did not keep her good fortune all
"to herself. The plight of a deserted
woman with three, young children was
brought to the attention of the widow
by Judge Graham, and Mrs. Donahoe
generously donated $250 to relieve the
needs of Mrs. Sarah Hacker of 451
First street.
When Mrs. Donahoe had been grant
ed $3,000 a month from her late hus
band's estate — she asked for only
$2,500, but the court added an extra
3500 — Judge Graham had Reporter Roy
Gallagher read to her the statement of
Mrs. Hacker. No suggestion was made
to Mrs. Donahoe that she assist, the
destitute family and no suggestion was
needed. She at once turned to her at
torney, Sydney Van Wyck, and directed
him to arrange for the payment of $250
to Mrs. Hacker. The money will, be
turned over in monthly installments.
The Donahoe fortune exceeds $500,
000. The will leaves it to Mrs. Don.a
hoe and her four children.

Action Brought to Prevent the
Trust Company From
Selling Securities
Arthur Crane yesterday brought suit
against the Union trust company to
enjoin it from selling the property of
the Sierra Nevada water and power
company in satisfaction of a mortgage,
pursuant to a judgment obtained in the
superior court of Calaveras county. The
Union trust companj* holds a mortgage
over the properties of the corporation
to secure an outstanding bond issue of
1,275 bonds of $1,000 each. Crane
charges that the bonds were fraudu
lently issued and distributed and were
Improperly taken out of the treasury
of the water company, that no con
sideration was given for them, and
that the trust. company took tbem with
full knowledge of the fraud. \u25a0
The of the water company
show, Crane asserts, that in September,
1905, properties of. the corporation
worth not more than $15,000 were pur
chased for $5,000,000 in stock of the
corporation, and a bonus of " $1,100,000
of the bonds was attempted to be added
to the stock payment. This fraudulent
transaction, Crane states," did not con
stitute an issue of the bonds.
Judge Seawell signed an order di
recting the trust company to show
cause this morning why it should not
be enjoined from selling 1 , buying or in
any way dealing with the bonds. ;-:
