Cecil Cowles Plays : Difficult
.Program With Great Self-
Walter Anthony
What arrests the attention in Cecil
Cowles* piano playing is its freedom
from restraint and its self-reliant ln
,diridnallty. Last night she played at
X,yrlc hall before a room full of listen
ers,'after an absence from the concert
.stage of over a year. She is now a
young: woman, long frock and ruffles
end all, but ehe has the engaging airs
of a child, though she does not play
llk« one. You expect her. to turn and
address- you from the piano stool, so
intimately \ friendly and childishly
**r«n« Is she. Like Da Pachman, the
Chopin revealer. Miss Cowles seems to
vent to tell you about It, for fear a
•lower talent might lag and miss the
beauties under her ..fingers.
. It Is probable that such genius as
2£les Cowles - assuredly owns . requires
but littl* drllL She. seems to come
naturally by a technle -which Is lim
ited only by a physical emallness of
hand. "Whether It- was in Raohman
laoit's "Barcarolle- In G minor, with a
left hajvd " melody .as swaying as a
rutji-in a ripple, or RosentHal's almost
impossible -Papillons." which Is a
•warm of fluttering butterflies, there
-was the earae Infallibility of technio
which found the right notes, as the
reed, its. haven or. the butterflies their
Chopin's" "Concerto" In E minor was
given an authoritative reading by the
young planitte, while "Warren D. Allen.
• t' a. second piano. \u25a0 played the tran
scribed, orchestral score with nice dis
crimination . and ready . sympathy.
Another number of Interest was Father
Dominions "Ex Abundantla J Cordls," %
< irge In remembrance of Liszt and ded
icated to Miss Cowles. There is not so
xmxch of dirge as suave melody in the
piece. , It Is more roi \-intlc than
funere*.! or solemn. While Miss Cowleii
gaye • Moszkowsky's "Valse.de Concert"
In E major a beautiful reading, it was
xiot & waJts for a concert so. much as it
\u25a0^•a* a. waits for two. Its measures sug
gested the touch and the swing of the
dance. There was. fire and passion in
the playing, and the Interpretation was
Miss Cowles' own. . Evidently her
teacher -has been content to. free her
genius rather than laboriously lead.lt.
At the conclusion of a taxing pro
gram, 'which contained, among other
things, Beethoven's sonata, "Appas
sionata"; much Chopin, a Liszt
."Rhapsody" and a dainty but unre
markable composition from the play
er's' own pen. Miss Cowlea was given an
enthusiastic reception by the large au
dience, and the flowers that were sent
to her nearly filled an express wagon.
\u25a0Etandley Gautereaux. the Oakland
author who was arrested on complaint
of the postal authorities for sending
obscene literature through the mails
to Mayor Taylor, was given a prelimi
nary hearing yesterday before United
States Commissioner Heacock. - Harry
J. JlcKsnnay, private, secretary to
Mayor Taylor, and Postofflce Inspector
James O'Connell were the witnesses for
the government. McKannay testified
to opening the package containing the
book, which .was sent through the
malls to Dr. Taylor. Gautereaux ad
mitted sending the book, which was
entitled "The "Woman I Love," but de
nied that It was obscene. \u0084; _v. v
Several pages of the book were
shown :to Commissioner Heacock by
Assistant United States Attorney , Mc-
Kihley. Commissioner Heacock said
that be believed the author had been
too frank in expressing his experiences.
Gautereaux was ordered held in $1,000
bonds for further hearing. .Judge Gib-
Eon of Oakland appeared as 'counsel for
jGautereaux. •.\u25a0.:. . ; i \u25a0 \u25a0 .
* Clarence A. Stllwell, a bar tender
out of work, was arrested yesterday, by
Detectives WTen and" Rlordan and
booked at the city prison on a-charge

Sunday when< Still well - accosted him.
Cavanaugh Bays he was induced by
Stllwell to go . to the latter' s , room jat
"1960 ; Height street, .where he drank
some liquor and became unconscious.
* Cavanaugh did not recover his senses
till late Monday afternoon and told: the
hotel people of his experience and that
he believed he had been drugged and
robbed of a $100 bill. He supposed that
Htilwel! had taken -him to his room in
tlie hotel. The , police were notified and
Stllwell was arrested. . .
...Four suits'. were ordered dismissed
from the court • calendar, yesterday •by
Judge Van Fleet in the United. States
circuit court.
The suit of Jake LevlSr. against the
Atchison. Topeka and Santa Fe railway
company to recover $25,000 for personal
injuries was dismissed. because the at

have' the case eet for trial on three

?>.The suits brought by ' the ' United

original action was brought In 1892 and
the sureties have disappeared. . .\u25a0„ '-,:

garding Outside Loop
• If. the United Railroads 1 : wishes ;' to
continue operating trolley cars over the
outer rails in. Market street-from.San
some street to the ferry landing the city
must Jbe g paid . a . monthly i rental of
$1,000, and in addition the Calhoun cor
poration must stipulate' that any other
line, wishing totuse the. ; tracks will' be
permitted to do. so. -Unless the com
pany acepts these c terms '•> the: super
visors will not "permit it 'to » use -the
outer rails after. June 1, when Its 'tern-'
porary permit .win expire. -> This course
was, decided upon, by .the utilities com
mittee !of the i supervisors 1 1 yesterday,
when {he " United ' Railroads and the
Sutter street company, '\u25a0 which . holds the
franchise o\ f er. tha "outer^ rails '.in; Mar
ket street, refused .'to, offer the: city any
terms for a renewal of the permit.
The United Railroads, through] Thorn
well Mullally, . renewed : the request
made last week for. permission to with
draw the bid made' by George'B..Wlll
cutt, secretary of 'the company, for the
Devisadero Street-Mission cross ' town
line franchise. Mullally. also asked to
be allowed to withdraw the $10,000
bond given by "Willcutt,when he filed
his bid. He said that the company
dldn't^care to build the :llne or accept
the franchise as amended by the" su
pervisors, after \u25a0 they . have discovered
several jokers in -. it. He presented" a
new form of franchise over the same
route on which he said the company
would be willing to bid.
The committee deferred action on the
entire matter ' until next week, :so
that the members may -have tlme^to
examine the proposed franchise. A'cur
sory examination of jj It \u25a0 yesterday
showed - that it ' con tal ned little which
\u25a0would be of value to -the city. v
RULES ARE "ADOPTED . \u0084 .^y
The committee adopted, a set of rules
and -regulations' to- govern - : the - opera
tion, of streetcars. The, new scheme
of designating the: different lines: by
means of numbers - was > agreed upon.
The companies. will be required to pro
vide fenders for all- cars, but no special
design was .recommended, as the com
mittee considers that. the fender prob
lem is still : In the experimental . stag.c.
The committee will recommendUthat
$2,500. be set aside to.seoure necefsary
surveys in connection with the Hetch
Hetchy valley water project. City En
gineer Marsden Manson estimates that
the Hetch Hetcby water can be brought
in to the city for: $30,000,000. This es
timate . does not provide for _a_ distrib
uting system.
. For mor* than ,an hour yesterday
afternoon a detail of police who had
rushed out In' a ; patrol wagon-in-re
sponse to -a-hurry call from, citizens,
fought a I grass- fire \in \ Calvary | ceme
tery, one .of the oldest of the city's
burial grounds, in an effort to save the
graves of .early day; pioneer* from des
ecration. ; Before the .fire was -brought
under control many of the old fash
ioned: wooden headstones had - been
charred and the names on -them oblit
erated.'- • . -' ':''' '•\u25a0'-\u25a0 •'\u25a0 : ">- '; \u25a0"- : :>'""-
Boys are supposed to have . started
the . fire. A small blaze in .. one corner
of the old. ! graveyard . spread . through
the dried, uncut grass with such .rapid
ity and. flercenees that it.. was , feared
nearby houses- in . Broderlck • street
would be endangered. . Many -, of the
graves hold remains of persons who
were once famous in California pioneer
history, but the names of most of them
have now . been forgotten. . To prevent
further desecration, however. Chief -of
Police Blggylast night detailed a spe
cial guard, of -patrolmen, to do sentry
duty around the cemetery. : . . -. •;.' •
E. J. Baldwin.* better' known as
"Lucky" Baldwin, one of. the famous
characters of pioneer days, has deter

"It Is time that a. new .vigilance
