The citizens' relief committee for the

further the cause for which it was organ
ized, and several bodies have undertaken
to assist in the project. The great desire,
aside from providing temporary relief for
those in want, is to provi ie employment

sireJ relief will be obtained. Yesterday
the deeds to the land we.re presented by
tho Spring ValJey Water Company and

strip 2500 feet long and about 100 feet
wide, from Seventh avenue to Lake
Honda; also a strip 800 feet long by 70
feet wide along the edge of the lake on the
south side. The only conditions are that
Mr. Sutro shall deed & strip 100 feet wide
from the Aimshouse property to the
county line and time given for the com
pany to make the necessary alterations in
its pipe lines.
Mr. Sutro's deed contained a clause that
caused a hitch in it being accepted at
once. It siipulatps that no *ewer shall
ever be constructed in any part of the
boulevard or portion thereof running
through Mr. Sutro's land for five years
without his consent or thereafter without
the consent of the majority of the prop
erty-owners. Ii fun her provide* that the
work of grading and macadamizing the
entire length mu-t commence within
three months and that the grant must be
accepted before May 2.
Neither deed was signed and they were
referred u> the Street Committee of the
Supervisors to pass upon.
Colonel Little represented Mr. Sutro,
and H. J. Crocker, Hermann Schussler
and Con O'Connor the bou evard com
mittee. They urged the Supervl-ors to
act upon the deeds an soon as possible so
that work may begin quickly. The donors
were ready to sign the deeds as soon as
they were approved.

The Alcazar Company Gives an

Fanny Rice and her company gay« "A
Flower Girl of Paris" at the Columbia
Theater last night for the first time in this
City. The work is described as an operatic
costume comedy, and to some extent jus
tifies the description, for the greater part
of tne music consists of "gems" culled
from op ras, ranging from "Dorothy" to
"Rigoietto," and the costumes, of the
"powder, paint and patches'' period, are
for the most part exceedingly handsome.
Miss Rice should modify ncr flower cos

her look like a bank whereon the wild
The plot of "A Flower Girl of Paris,"
although easy to fo-low, has a <:ood many
intricacies which giveopportunit es to the
star for tlie display of her vivacity. Miss
R cc also sings a good deal more than was
the case in "The French Ball."
Most of the members of the supporting
company have concenial roles in ''A
Flower Girl of Paris." Several of the
vocal numbers were encored last night.
The piece will run for the rest of the week
and on Monday Joseph Haworth and
Margaret Craven will appear in " Ruy
Bias," preceded by the curtain-raiser, "A
Man of the World."
The Alcazar company has been strength
ened this week by the addition of Adele
Belparde and Charles Wyngate. "By
Proxy" is going with plenty of spirit.
Miss Belgarde has a congenial part in the
role of the adventuress, Olga Claremont,
and she more than fulfills her promise
made to Percival Medwyn in tne first act,
that she will make things lively for him.
Miss Kit tie iielraour succeeds in being
thoroughly at home as the American

amusing ideaof the erring "popper," who
does not attend divine service quite so*
often as lie gives his family to understand.

tbe heroine and throws her into the mill
race without incurring any after-effects
in the way of legal tines and imprison
ments, and the heroine still bobs up
serenely in tbe arms ot Si Perkins, none
the worse for her ducking or the stabfrom
the wicked-looking stiletto. W. M. Couley
represents the deacon especially well, aim
he is even better as tbe ricn old invalid

more and more on the San Francisco pub

The play, witQ its quiet, trmhful realism,
is one that will well bear seeing twice.
"Shore Acres" will run nil next week.
"The Derby Mascot" is one of the most
stirring plays that the Grand has seen for
some time. Most of the leading members
of the company have good roles, and some
