The bunker of 2000 tons of coal was
noticed several days ago to be smoking,
and upon examination it was learned that
spontaneous combustion had taken place,
the iire beginning in the bottom of the
pile where the coal had become damp.
As is well known all coal contains iron
and sulphur, and the oxygen in the
moisture coming in contact with this
sulphuret of iron, or iron pyrites, gen
erates heat, which feeding upon the car
bonic elements of the coal burns until all
the combustible pases have decomposed
and been dissipated into the atmosphere.
As the workmen shoveled out the con
suming matter, it was ssen that the sup
porting umbers of the bunker running
down through the coal had burned away,
necessitating their bring pieced out as the
removal of the heated mass progressed.
All the contents of the bunker will b« re
moved, and Superintendent Noble of the
mills estimates that about $2000 worth of
coal '.v ill be destroyed. He states that the
poorer qualities oi' coal, which contain a
greater proportion of sulphur, is always
liable to spontaneous combustion if any of
the pile becomes exposed to moisture and
begins to oxidize. Three years ago over
10,000 tons at the rolling-mills caught fire
and the City Fire Department worked a
week before "the combustion was gotten
under control. About s2o,ouo worth of coal
It is not believed that this fire will cause

"At present we have something like
10,000 Belgians in this country. They
seem to be very prosperous, too. As for
myself I have been doing all 1 could to
build up and foster trade between the
United States and Belgium. Nearly all
the iirst-class manufactured goods you get
here come from Belgium. You need
them, too, and as for Belgium she needs
an enormous amount of second-class goods,
which she buys every year from this
country. The trading* between the two
countries is very beneficial to both.
'"Belgium is very prosperous. She has
no navy, it is true, being now the only

up the Thames with a new broom nailed to
the masthead as a token that he would
sweep the river clean of British vessels.
"It wns then we had a great navy, but,
as I said, we don't need any now, for we
are too busy now with making goods for
other countries to be bothered about such
things as warships.
"I came out to the Pacific Coast for

Sculptors Here Worked Up
Over the Goethe-Schiller
WILL IT COME FROM ABROAD?
Otto Dobbertin Recalls an Incident in
the History of the Martin Luther
If the $6000 recently realized at the
Goethe-Schiller festival, held at the Me
chanics' Pavilion for the purpose of secur
ing sufficient capital to erect a monument
to the immortal poets of the Fatherland, is
spent in reproducing Reichel's masterpiece
in Weimar, Germany, it will create a rum
pus among the local sculptors and may ex
tend to other art centers of America
There is a most decided opposition to the
proposed plan of taking a duplicate cast of
the monument at Weimar, not only for the
reason that it will do the American sculp
tors no good, but because it is contrary to
the ethics of the art of making memorial
" Who ever heard of any one taking a
cast of a masterpiece and setting it up in
some other country? It is not good policy
and it is a decided reflection upon the
sculpt ors of this country," said Otto Dob
bertin yesterday. "The money obtained
for the purpose of erecting a monument to
Goethe and Scbiller was secured in
America and it should be spent here. A
great many of the men who were
foremost in the festival held at the
Pavilion are members of the Manu
facturers' and tho Merchants' As
sociation, and the strongest clause in
their constitution is to patronize home in
dustry and keep all the money possible in
San Francisco. I should think under these
circumstances that they should practice
what they preach. We have several com
petent sculptors here, but they were never
invited to even make a design for the
monument. The projectors prefer to get a
reproduction of a work made nearly ninety
years ago. It is true that Keichel was a
great sculptor, but it can also be said with
truth that since his lime a few improve
ments in the art have been made. If lie
were alive I would be willing to wager
that he would not permit a cast to be
taken from the Weimar monument. It is
not artistic to stop at one work nor does it
encourage better production. If we have
to go to Germany for our best works, what
is the good of trying to produce anything
"Understand me, I am not meking an
independent fight for San Francisco talent
alone. I think that would be too narrow,
but I do believe, in common with the rest
of the sculptors of this City, that the
money should be spent in America. If no
one nere is able to suit the committee,
let thorn send to the Eastern artists, but
by all means keep the money in this
country, where it was accumulated.
"In Germany, where all of the parks con

ten of the nation, it would never be
thought a good idea to reproduce another
monument that had already been placed
in a public park. The nearest thine; to such
a proposition wa*t!ie Martin Luther monu
ment erected at Worms, and designed, sup
posedly, by Reichel. As a matter of fact
it was designed by him, with the exception
of the face, and "of that there is quite a
story. When Keichcl died, he had almost
finished Luther's rigure, and in life had
been assisted by three of his pupils. The
figure proper and the face were about com
pleted, but it was necessary to put on a
lew extra touches before the cast was
made. Hl3 death, however, put a stop to
the work so far as be was concerned, and
its completion rested upon Professor Kitz
and the celebrated Donndorf. Apparently
they finished the work, and it was erected
and unveiled with proper ceremonies.
Some years later, when another monument
was required to commemorate the four
hundredth anniversary of the Restoration
of Protestantism, another figure of Luther
was required, and as it was acknowledged
that Reichel's work was the best,
a controversy arose as to ' whether
or not it would be the proper
tiling to reproduce a similar monument.
The idea was at once howled down and
scoffed at. About this time, or when the
indignation was at its height, Kitz came
forward and made a confession. He stated
to the authorities of the city of Dresden,
where the new work was to be located,
that the face on the Luther statue at
Worms was not Reichel's work, but that it
had been modeled by Donndorf. He also
confessed that Donndorf, immediately
after hi* master's death, had cut the
lleichel face off the Luther clay model with
a line wire and had added thereto his own
work, and that he (Kitz) had secured the
reai Reichel and that it was still in his
possession. Phis admission created a most
unprecedented excitement among the
scnlptors of the Old World, ana Donndorf
admitted his connection with the affair.
After the exposure had been quieted down
Kitz permitted his treasure to be used for
the face on the Dresden monument and
the Luther figure at Worms was repro
duced, tlie same height as the original
(nine feet) and Reichel's first faceof Luther
put where it belonged. That was the
nearest thing to a duplication that ever
took place in Germany, and it would not
have occurred then had it not been for the
size of the tijrurc and the desire to get the
"I do not want to be classed among the
complainers, but I voice the sentiment of
the sculptors of this City, and I think if
the truth were known, of the whole United
F. W. Dohrmann, who was one of the
prime movers in the Goethe-Schiller festi
val, said of the proposition to reproduce
the Weimar work: "When we first began
preparations for the festival it was known
among the sculptors that we intended
sending to Germany for a reproduction of
the Reichel monument and none of them
made a very decided objection at that
time. Since then, however, some l^ave
spoken of it. So far as I am concerned
I think the claims of local artists should
receive some consideration, but none of
them have shown what they can do with
the case in question. It is simply a mat
ter of setting a good work. On one hand
it is a matter of tome doubt and on the
other a concrete and safe proposition. We
know that Reichel's creation is a tine work,
and we don't know what we can get here.
It reminds me very much of Lincoln's re
mark that 'It is never safe to trade horses
when you are crossing a stream.' The
artists had a chance to make their desires
known when we first began to discuss the
festival and they said not inn of their in
tentions or of their capacity to produce a
LAWRENCE'S LAST HOURS.
Conveyed to the Almshouse
Without a Particle of
Superintendent Weaver Says He Was
in a Dying Condition— Dr.
The excitement in the Mayor's office and
Health Department over the case of Luigi
Lawrence, who died at the Almshouse on
the 23d inst., after having been refused
admittance to the City and County
Hospital, had not abated yesterday, and
all the officials who had had any connec
tion with the matter called at the Mayor's
oih'ce to explain.
Superintendent Weaver of the Aims
house said that when Lawrence was taken
to the institution he was in a state of col
lapse. Mr. Weaver was very indignant
regarding the manner in which he
"Lawrence, as we understood his name
to be, was brought in the Receiving Hos
pital van," he said.
"It was easy to see that his case was a
desperate one. He was lying on the bare
floor of the van without a particle of cov
ering, and was so far gone\tnat he had to
be carried into the Almshouse.
"Dr. Condon examined him and found
tnat his case was beyond hope. In the
condition in which we found him he
should certainly have been taken into the
City and County Hospital and cared for
until he either died or was sulh'ciently re
covered to be removed to the Almstiouse.
"This is not the lirst case that has been
brought to the Almshouse in a desperate
condition. One woman died on the way,
,after having been directed there from the
City and County Hospital, and a man,
another patient, only lived six hours.
"I understand that Lawrence was kept
waiting one hour and twenty minutes at
the City and County Hospital without
medical assistance before an examination
of his condition was made. He appeared
to be a gentleman, was well dressed, and
should have had at least the attention that
common humanity would prompt."
Taylor Rogers, the Mayor's clerk, said
that wi,en Lawrence was brought in from
the City and County Hospital he had at
tempted to question him, but the man
was unable to speak.
The Mayor received the following com
munication from Dr. Stable, Superin
tendent of the City and County Hospital,
in relation to the matter, yesterday:
Ihin. Adolph Sutro, Mayor, San Francisco, Cat
—mi*.: 1 have the honor to submit the follow
ing reply in unswer to your communication of
the 2<ftn inst.:
i do n<H know, nor does any official of this
hospital, of any patient who was brought here
Thursday in a* dying condition where admis
sion was refused.
I have never refused admission to any appli
cant whose condition and circumstances as
sured him the care of the City, and I have
cautioned the resident physician Id my ab
sence to be very careful, and err on the side of
Ono case was brought here last weak, the
name of the patient being Louis de Lenger.
He had already been an inmate of this institu
tion twice; was suffering from softening of the
lint in, and, ou the recommendation of the
visiting chief, was sent to the Almshouse.
When this patient arrived last weelc his poise
was taken, and nothing indicating weakness
and speedy collapse was found. I then advised
liis Mends to take him to the Almshouse, stat
ing as 11 reason that we were overcrowded; he
had already been taken care of there, and his
case was one that came properly under the
provisioTS of section 3 (visiting physicians
and surgeons) and section 9 (superintendent
physician), rules and regulations for the gov
ernment of the City ond County Hospital.
I am willing to explain my action in person
should you deem it necessary. Very respect
tully, F. H. Stahle,'M.D.,
Superintendent City and County Hospital.
The doctor also called in person, but did
not see the Mayor.
It is probable that when all the facts as
related by the different persons interested
are laid before the Mayor he will make
certain recommendations to the Board of
Healtn looking to the more careful exami
nation of applicants for admission to the
hospitals and for the greater comfort of
patients while en route to these institu-
Celine Falquer, in whose house Lawrence
lived, at f>o7 Bush street, said yesterday
that his complaint waschronic and that he
had been several times to the City and
"During the different times he was
there," said he, "he would make so much
noise while out of his head that he would
greatly annoy the other patients in the
ward. So when I went there with him the
last time the doctor refused to admit him

One Bank Explains.
In answering the suit of P. F. Dundon
against the Pacific Bank, to set aside the
transfer of the Pacific Bank property to
the People's Home Bank, the defendants
in the suit have mado the following ex
Soon after the Pacific Bank was incor
porated, in May, 1888, it commenced to re
ceive large deposits from the People's
Home until, in 1893. it owed the People's
Home Bank $2.30,000, and bad guaranteed
other indebtedness to the amount of $595,
--000. About this time the Riverside Bank
of Riverside owed the Pacific Bank $400,000.
To induce this indebtedness to the Pacific
Bank, the Riverside Bank conveyed some
of its real estate to various parties, and
then with the notes obtained liquidated.
These notes the Pacific Bank executed to
the People's Home Bank under guarantee.
Under this transaction the People's Home
Bank credited the Pacific Bank with
$215,287 72, and the Pacific credited the
same amount to the Riverside Bank. The
Pacific Bank had further guaranteed the
People's Home for Los Angeles Consoli
dated Electric Railway bonds to the
amount of $200,000.
In consequence of all these transactions
the Pacific Bank alleges that it conveyed
the deed for the bank premises to the
People's Home in satisfaction of these

Escapade of Lieutenant White of i
the Bear and a Chorus
ACCUSER OF CAPTAIN HEALY.
To the Invalid Wife Left Behind He
Sent Confessing Letters Hinting
Lieutenant Chester White, late of the
revenue cutter Bear and the accuser of
Captain Healy, has eloped with an actress
of the "Passing Show" Company, so says
the invalid wife left behind.
His present companion was a chorus
girl known in theatrical circles as Mabel
"Howe," but in private life as Mabel
Charming. According to his wife's story
the lieutenant was an admirer of Miss
Charming before he married Mrs. White,
so that the escapade of the young naval
officer is the revival of an old love. He
had been married only a year.
Shortly after the Bear arrived from the
north (November 16) Lieutenant White
preferred charges of a grave nature in
Washington against Captain Healy, but a
few days later he withdrew his charges,
sending also apologies to the officer he had
When the Bear came into port Lieuten
ant White at once secured a twenty-four
hours' leave of absence and went to his
home on Golden Gate avenue to see his
wife. His visit was a brief one, and the
remainder of his period of absence was
spent with Miss Charming in Oakland.
Another brief visit was paid to his wife
next day, he hurriedly kissing her good-by
on the pretense that he had to report at
once for duty. Mrs. White has not seen

Lieutenant White and Miss Charming
were aboard a train en route for the East.
His wife received a sentimental letter from
him some days ago, in which missive her
husband hinted at a possible suicide in
the following words:
When you read this you will, of course,
know what has occurred. I will have a week
or so of the only real happiness my miserable
life has ever known, and then the end for both
she and I.
I cannot ask forgiveness, for I know it is
impossible for such an act as mine, but try
and not think too hardly of me.
Good-by forever, for I will not see you again,
not even beyond the giave.
The recreant husband and officer first
became apprised of the presence here of
"Mabel Howe" by a letter his wife handed
him at his tirst appearance home. He
told her it was from the woman and added
the information that she was with the
"Passing Show" company, qualifying his
allusions to her with considerable levity.
He hastened to see Miss Charming, how
ever, who was then in Oakland.

he has withdrawn it and has been assigned
to another station.
Mrs. White endeavored to keep her ap
parent misfortune a secret, but yesterday
admitted the circumstances of his cruel
desertion. Her illness has been greatly
aggravated by her husband's conduct, so
much so that it was necessary for her,
under her physician's orders, to be re
moved to the Hotel Lennox. She was
completely prostrated for a while. Two
letters were sent to her by her husband,

THE HUMAN FACE IN ART
Professor Ardley Talks on the
Anatomy of Human Ex
Effect of Passions on the Featnres— A
Lecture at the Mechanics'
Professor H. T. Ardley of the University
of California delivered in the Mechanics'
Institutes lecture last evening, taking [for
his subject, "The Anatomy of Expression
in the Human Face and Figure." There
was an unusually large audience present
and the lecture was very interesting.
The lecturer explained the outward ex
pression by the human face of inward feel
ings from the point of view of the artist,
in order to show what lines to accentuate.
He said that all the leading academies of
Europe associate the study of anatomy
with that of art so far as it "relates to the
human form and spoke of the necessity to
the artist of a knowledge of the muscles
which play so large a part in the forming
of expression. He then went on and gave
some hints on the anatomical expression
of the human face when influenced by cer
tain feelings and passions that would aid
in a clearer understanding of just what
muscles or what lines must be altered or
accented in order to produce or enhance
certain desired effects.
"For instance," he said, "jealousy is
marked by a frowning and dark obliquity
of the eyes, as if it said 'I have an eye on
you,' and with the lowering eyebrow is
combined a cruel expression of the lower
part of the face. In rage the eyebrows are
knit, the eyelid lifted and the eyeballa
glare. There is a general tension of the
muscles. The effect on the countenance
may be seen more plainly in the feminine
than the masculine face.
"It is by the habit of expression that the
countenance is improved or degraded. If
hardship, misfortune and care are there
expressed habitually, what we admire the
most is lost. Peace, comfort and happiness
keep the features mobile and ready to con
form as an index of the mind to the senti
ment we love."
Professor Ardley illustrated his lecture
with a large number of clever sketches.
