OUR TRIBYS IN MARBLE.
Society Women Having Their
Feet Modeled by Rupert
ALL OF TEEM AEE TOO SMALL.
Tha Fad Has Shown the Sculptor
That Modern Shoes Are
"I could not swear to the fact that they
are Trilby feet," sail Rupert Schmid as he
looked critically, yesterday afternoon, at a
number of plaster casts and marbles that
were sprinkled about his studio. "I would
not swear to that, because I do not know

When Rupert Schmid first received or
ders to model the feet of the 400 he did the
chiseling not exactly "in darkness by dead
of night," because a good light is neces
sary to bring expression out of marble;
but he was wont to "seek the seclusion
that a studio grants" and to do his work
in silence and alone. As the Trilbys grew
and multiplied around him, however, the
sculptor lost his tirst timid awe of them.
He had often modeled feet before. It was
the mysterious Trilbyism and the four
hundredisrn that had filled him with
dread. He had also been afraid that
every casual beholder would be able to
exclaim, "That is Mrs. Five O'clock's foot

Rupert Schmid has made gradual ex
periments, however, and he has found that
a detached foot is an anonymous thing
and gives little or no clew to the identity
of its owner. On that account he con
sented — somewhat reluctantly, it must be
confessed — to display his store of Trilbys
yesterday and permit some of the most
beautiful to be photographed.
"They all belong to wealthy San Fran-

•Trilby,' and all I know about the mania
for it is that I used to have a great many
orders to model hands — now I have orders
to model feet," and the scuiptor looked
with a resigned air at the monuments of
his industry, which gave outwurd and
visible proof of the truth of his words.
"Are these as beautiful as the ones Dv
Maurier wrote about?" was asked.

Members of the Congressional
Delegation Examine Al-
Revival of Commerce by Last Year's
Strike— The Railroad Com-
The members of the Congressional dele
gation made an inspection of Alviso chan
nel yesterday. At 10 o'clock the steamer
Alviso was boarded at Clay-street wharf
by Senators White and Perkins and Con
pressmen Loud, Hilborn and Barham.
They were joined by a committee of citi
zens from San Jose, composed of the lol
loping gentlemen, appointed by the Board
of Trade: C. M. Wooster, president of the
Board of Trade, chairman ; O. A. Hale, W.
J. Rodgers, W. C. Andrews, A. Summers,
James Dougherty, S. E. Smith, W. G.

S. F. Ayres, Mayor Paul Austin and C. J.
Owen of the San Jose Mercury. W. W.
Montague and Senator John L. Beard,
who are largely interested in the country
about Alviso, also joined the party.
On the way down the bay members of
the committee presented their claims and
discussed the various points involved with
It was pointed out that the channel was
a magnificent waterway and capable of
being made available at* no very great ex
pense for ocean ships. Engineer Herrman
said that at an expense of not more than
$25,000 Alvi^o Point could be cut off and
the channel deepened enough to enable
large coasting vessels to go up to Alviso
with coal, lumber and other freight, and
that there would be very little expendi
ture required in the future to keep it clear.
Senator "White pointed out that Congress
would hardly make an appropriaton at the
coming session against the recommenda
tion of the engineers, who had reported
that the channel was in good enough con
dition for the amount of commerce at the
time the survey was made.
Mr. Wooster" explained that there had
been little use maae of the waterway since
the railroads were built until the strike
last year, when boats were put on. "Al
ready," he said, "this little stream
has reduced grain rates from $1 60
to $1 20. The late reduction of rates by
the Railroad Commission was only to $1 45.
This small boat line is saving to San Jose
$100,000 a year.
Senator "Perkins said: "I think tnat we
can at least get an appropriation for an
other survey. You have not navigated
this streani for twenty or twenty-five
years until the strike came, and the
amount of commerce did not make a

Valuable Lands and Improve
ments In the Town of
WOETH A MILLION DOLLARS.
The Attorney-General WIJI Assert
the State's Rights In the
W. F. Fitzgerald, Attorney-General of
California, has examined voluminous doc
uments recently placed in his possession
and has decided to take steps necessary to
collect taxes and exercise State sovereignty
over a tract of 3000 acres of California land
which is claimed by the Territory of Ari
Many buildings in the business quarter
of the town of Yuma are situated on this
land. The extensive buildings of the ter
ritorial penitentiary are on the soil of Cali
fornia. So are the Southern Pacific Rail
road shops, steamboat landing, the Yuma
Water and Light Company's pumping
works, the Yuma electric plant and about
one-third of the business section of the
city. The Yuma property within the lim
its of' California is valued at $1,000,000. The
buildings on the line of Modesti's store and
north of it are really in San Diego County
of this State.
From the organization of the California
State Government until 1878 the taxes
were collected by San Diego County, and
the authority of California • was fully
recognized. In 1878 the county officers
appointed to collect i«ersonal property and
poll-taxes were driven out of the town by
a mob, and since then San Diego has not
attempted to assess property or bring the
town under California's jurisdiction.
Colonel Chalmers Scott of San Diego is
familiar with the boundary lines and
quite well posted regarding the merits of
the dispute. He served as County Clerk of
San Diego when residents in Yuma on
both sides of the Colorado River voted in
California and paid taxes to this State.
In an interview yesterday Colonel Scott
said : "Arizona exercises sovereignty over
30U0 acres of land in California, under a de
cision rendered by an Arizona Judge in a
case wherein California was not repre
sented. In fact it was a pretended case
put up for the special purpose of getting a
decision one way. The record of surveys
is so clear and the boundary lines are so
distinctly defined and stated in the Guada
lupe Hidalgo treaty that there can be no
doubt that Arizona is the trespasser. I
have frequently retraced the lines, and
what is more important now as bearing on
the case is the fact that the boundary line
has been re-marked within the last few
months by a joint commission of the
United States and Mexico. In the work
of the commission Colonel Barlow, United
States engineer, represented our Govern
ment and Colonel Blunco of the Mexican
engineers the Government of Mexico.
They found the initial point and the mon
uments of the survey in the city of Yuma,
on the line established in 1852.
"In order that the merits of the con
troversy may be comprehended, reference
should be made to article 8 of the Guada
lupe Hidalgo treaty, which denned the
boundaries. The boundary line, after fol
lowing up the Rio Grundeto a point above
El Paso, runs west to the western bound
ary of New Mexico; thence northerly until
it intersects the first or nearest branch of
the Gila; thence down the middle of said
branch, and up the said river until it
empties into the Rio Colorado; thence
across the Rio Colorado following the
division line between Upper and Lower
California to the Pacific Ocean. And in
order to preclude all difficulty in tracing
upon the ground the limit separating Up
per from Lower California, it is agreed
that the said limit shall consist of a
straight line drawn from the middle of the
Rio Gila where it empties into the Colo
rado to a point on the coast of the Pacific
Ocean distant one marine league due south
of the southernmost port of San Diego
(according to Panlaja's chart)."
The straight line so run, so clearly es
tablished by surveys and so fully recog
nized by treaty, includes in California a
Btrip of 3000 acres south of the Colorado,
where the river runs east and west for a
few miles near Yuma.
In 1857, under Colonel John C. Hays,
United States Surveyor-General, township
16 south, range 21 and 22 east of San Ber
nardino meridian, was subdivided and
the subdivision line carritd across the
river to the boundary line. ''But for some
unknown reason," said Colonel Scott, "the
subdivisions on the opposite side of the
Colorado River were scratched out on the
official maps of the Surveyor-General's
On the day that California was admitted
to the Union, September 9, 1850, Congress
passed the organic act creating the Terri
tory of New Mexico, including then Ari
zona north of the Gila, but section 18 of
that organic act of New Mexico suspended
the provisions of the act until a dispute
with Texas as to the eastern boundary of
New Mexico should be settled, which was
really not settled until after 1874, if settled
at all, consequently the right of California
to the strip south of the Colorado River
cannot now be disputed.
Arizona sets up a claim, under a mis
reading of the Gaasden purchase (Gadsden
treaty, December 30, 1858), but this treaty
retains the dividing line between Upper
and Lower California as then established.
The boundary lines of California, as es
tablished by the first constitsrioi at Mon
terey and repeated word for wo d in the
second constitution, conform tot ie Guada
lupe Hidalgo treaty. Under our State con
stitution one-third "of the town of Yuma is
in California. It may be true that, ac
cording to geographical situation, the
land on that side of the Colorado belongs
to Arizona, but not according to official
survey of boundary lines under the treaty
of original acquisition.
The controversy may be settled in the
United States courts or a joint commission
representing California and Arizona may
agree on terms of settlement.

ASHWORTH UNDER FIRE.
The Grand Jury Discovers
Some Very Crooked Street
WITNESSES AEE STJBPENAED.
Interesting Evidence May Be Ex
pected—Members Talk Freely
The Grand Jury will to-day begin a
thorough examination of Street Superin
tendent Ashworth's methods.
LaEt evening a flood of subpenas wa3
sent out from that body addressed to em
ployes of the Street Department and others
having the desired information.
To every one of these some very perti
nent questions will be put, and upon their
answers will depend the action of the
Grand Jury which may or may not carry
Mr. Ashworth into court.
Warnings the Street Superintendent has
received in numbers sufficient to have
served most mcD, but they seem to have
had no effect in Mr. Ashworth's case.
Yesterday the Grand Jury took it upon
itself to go and see for itself a sample of
the work of which so much complaint has
been made. In company with the mem
bers of the Street Committee of the Board
of Supervisors they went to Twelfth street,
where a bituminous-rock pavement is be
ing laid — as they found— upon a concrete
foundation that is hardly fit to be rated as
Mpmbers of the jury were considerably
enlightened as to how the streets of San
Francisco are built under the present ad
ministration. A surface that should, under
the specifications, be of the consistency
of solid rook they found no difficulty in
turning up with the toe of a shoe.
Standing idly by, watching this fraudu
lent pavement being laid, was one of the
Street Superintendent's deputies.
The comments of many of the jurors
were outspoken and to the point. They
Raid it was fraud and an outrage upon the
City, and nothing less, and the word "im
peachment" was used by more than one
The Street Committee of the Board of
Supervisors also, as stated, inspected this
piece of work. They were advised of its
character by George W. Elder, Chairman
The majority of the members of the
committee have hitherto been disposed to
be lenient with Ashworth and let his ex
cuses and explanations weigh against a
great deal of evidence against him and his
work. But here there was no possibility
of error, and they agreed with the mem
bers of the jury that this was a fraud upon
the City that was being countenanced by
the Street Department in the person of one
of the Superintendent's deputies, who was
then present looking on.
Indeed, when Elaer began to tnrn up
the surface of the concrete with his boot to
show the committee how easy it could be
done, the deputy was inclined to interfere.
This demonstration on Twelfth street
yesterday is merely corroborative of a long
line of similar evidence that the Street De
partment is not being conducted as the
people have a right to expect it to be con
This does not apply solely to the char
acter of tne work upon the streets either.
In this matter, however, Ashworth has al
ways stoutly maintained tbat he employs
as deputies only men who are entirely
trutatworthy. and then does not leave it
wholly to them, but himself personalJy in
spects every piece of street work of magni
tude. That being true he must himself
have seen this fraudulent work on Twelfth
street, near to his office.
But, as stated, the inquiry of the Grand
Jury will touch upon other features of the
workings cl the department.
The purpose is not merely to find ma
terial with which to score the department
in the semi-annual report after the ad
journment, but to take such steps as will
put an effectual stop upon the acceptance
of poor and fraudulent street work by the
department, the business of which "is to
see that the City get value for its money.

Measurement of Swedish Vessels.
The Treasury Department has issued an order
admitting Swedish vessels that have been
measured in home ports to American harbor*
without the formality of Roinjr througn the
Surveyor's hands. The Swedish Government
has adopted the rules and regulation* pre
scribed by the United States Government lor
the computing of the tonnage of us ships ana
the remeasurement is thus made unnecessary.
A MILLSTONE ON HIS NECK.
How He Got Rid of It
Mr. S.s occupation was such that he felt
the occasional need of a stimulant. He
never intended to take more than one
drink— but he generally did. On rare oc
casions he actually got full.
Though it never seriously interfered with
his business, he fek that it was reducing
liis health and success. He made frequent
resolutions and broke them. He was
slowly going down hill.
Then he found Peruvian Bitters— and he
is now rapidly going up.
Peruvian Bitters are composed of the
world famous Peruvian Bark and other
medicinal herbs of great value blended in
fine old California brandy. The invigorat
ing and tome effect of the Peruvian Bark
co-operates with the stimulating effect of
the brandy, but neutralizes its tendency to
produce an appetite for more. Peruvian
Bitttrs satisfy the desire of a stimulant —
quench the lire instead of adding fuel.
After takintr this palatable and highly in
vigorating drink for a while the desire for
alcoholic stimulants is gone; the appetite
and digestion are in normal condition; the
system is toned up and every function at
its best. You continue to take Peruvian
Bitters, not from habit but because you
feel it does you continuous good, fortifies
you against colds, malaria and disease
germs of every description and makes you
as far as possible a perfect physical being.
