Creator of Famous Sketches
Says He Never Saw So Many
Pretty Girls Before
After Viewing Group at Fair
mont Asserts He Should Have
Come Here for "Gibson Girl"
Compelling Beauty of Miss Pet
ers of Stockton Causes Him
to Seek an Introduction
It has required but a single day for
Charles' Dana Gibson to reach the con
clusion that the most beautiful women
are to be found in California, and the
famous artist has selected Miss Anna
Peters of Stockton for his special en
"Ah, there is a truly beautiful
•woman." said Gibson yesterday as he
bowed toward Miss Peters in the lobby
of the Fairmont hotel. He had just
been introduced to her at his personal
request and saw In her the embodiment
of that feminine loveliness to which ho
has dedicated his talents.
Miss Peters was all unconscious of
the extraordinary compliment that had
been bestowed upon her. She had been
in San Francisco for a brief stay and
returned last evening to her home In
Stockton. The young lady has always
been known for her beauty, and has
been pointed out at balls and cotillons
in San Francisco, as well as In her
home city. In fact. Miss Peters is al
most a San Franciscan, as she spends
much of her time here. She is of the
\u25a0w-^ll known J. D. Peters family. which
:s possessed of valuable lands and oth
er extensive interests in the San Joa
quin valley.
It was during the reception to the
members of the imperial Chinese com
mission that Gibson's attention was
drawn to Miss Peters. The artist had
been driving about the citx in an auto
mobile with Norman Hapgood and a
number of friends and had observed
with unconcealed interest the groups
of attractive women. Driving to the
Fairmont. Gibson mingled in the throng
that crowded the lobby -when the com
missioner from the orient and his re
tinue arrived. Hundreds of society
people had gathered to witness the
gala event.
"By George, I never saw so many
pretty girls before in my life." ex
claimed Gibson enthusiastically. "I
should have come to California to cre-r
ate the Gibson girl."
The famous artist was introduced to
many of the women who had assembled,
and he frankly confessed his astonish
ment at the panorama before him.
"I naturally expected to meet very
pretty women in San Francisco," he
said, "but, upon my word, I was not
prepared to see so many of them.":.".-.
Then it was that Gibson noted the
presence of Miss Peters. He inquired
her name of Manager Rich of the hotel
and then requested an introduction.
They chatted a few moments and then
Gibson rejoined Ills friends.
"Ah, there is a truly beautiful
woman," he remarked, indicating Miss
Peters, "and." he continued, "a most
charming one."
Gibson reached San Francisco on Sat
urday night and yesterday for the first
time met the women of the city.

Pacific Coast Delegates Return
and Declare Brown Men :
Are Sincere Friends
The vanguard of the Pacific- coast
commercial delegation, that went to
Japan some months ago returned yes- |
terday on the Pacific Mail liner Mon
golia and they bring from -the island
kingdom a message of peace and good ]
will. The delegation left here for the
purpose of burying the hatchet- that is
supposed to have been swinging back
and forth across the Pacific and reach
ing an understanding with the Yan
kees of the orient that would ot least
place the fight for the commercial su
premacy of the Pacific ocean on a
friendly basis. According to the four
members of the delegation who arrived
here yesterday, they found no" hatchet
to bury. They found friendship that
extended from the mikado himself to
the school children of his realm.
"I think," said Albert C. Billicke of
Los Angeles, "that Japan realizes that
the friendship of the United States is
absolutely essential to her commer
cial existence. On ' accoutn of past
happenings on the Pacific coast we ex
pected that our greeting mfgnt be
somewhat strained. "We were received,
however, with open arms and were the
recipients of more official courtesies
than Japan ever before extended to an
unofficial delegation. I have absolute
faith in Japan's protestations offrlendr
ship. We were in the country for 24>
days. In that time we visited Yoko
hama, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe and
Nikko, in addition to making a num
ber or trips into the- country. Where
ever: we went, our reception was , the
save. The school children in particular
added much to the delight of our visit.
Wherever we went they received us
with smiles, and on the smallest prov
ocation filled the air with "banzais" In
honor of the American visitors.
"The reception they gave . the fleet
was wonderf uL . To us as Ajpericans,
however, there was one rather humil
iating feature of that reception, and
I wish congress could have been as
sembled there to share the bitter pill.
Because the commander in chief of
our fleet was only a rear admiral naval
etiquette did not permit Admiral Togo
to take part in the welcome cere
monies. We met Admiral Togo; he
gave us a dinner party, and he is a
fine old chap. But It hurt us to think
that our admiral, the commander of our
fine fleet, should have been sent on a
visiting tour without as much rank as
any other admiral in the world. This
may seem a small thing in Washing
ton, but to an American in Japan it
The visiting merchants saw the
mikado reviewing his troops. He is a
tired looking man, past middle age and
much crippled with, rheumatism. The
delegates who returned yesterday say
that the Japanese ruler impressed them
as the hardest worked man in the
island kingdom. A report of the trip
will be sent to the various chambers
of commerce by the committee on
trade relations, of which R. B. Hale of
this city ; is chairman.
The other members of the delegation
who returned on the -Mongolia were

Sailors Refuse Duty and Demand
to Be Put Ashore, but Are
Manacled in Hold
After battling with Icebergs and a
mutinous crew. , the little whaling
steamer Jeariette came . into port'yes
terday 52 days from the Arctic ocean.
On September ' 2 the Jeariette was sur
rounded by Icebergs which threatened
to crush her. .- Captain Long . dodged
about and for_ 24 hours all hands were
on • deck ' helping -to get away - from
the 'mountains of Ice.
They ; finally succeeded in getting to
ward open water, when suddenly a
mass of ice struck the* stern of the
vessel and carried away the' propeller.
At the same time a breeze. sprang up
and the vessel ' sailed to clear water.
All then went well until July 4.
when the, ship was 50 miles north of
Nome. At that time four of ; the crew
refused duty and demanded that they
be • allowed to have a.', small • boat : and
go ashore. Captain Long ordered- them
back to work. The skipper did his ut
most to make, the sailors resume duty,
but they, refused. He then put, them
below in irons for 18 hours. After that
they decided to return- to duty.

Oakley Fitzpatrick Plunges Into
Water Beyond His Depth
and Stays Down
"OAKLAND, Nov.- 22.— Oakley
patrick. a 19 year old student^ who
lived at 32S Grand avenue, was drowned
at the Piedmont baths tonight, and; his
cousin, Steve Fitzpatrick,* who;was with
him, • narrowly \u25a0 escaped J the same t fate.
The boys. who. had :been at thei baths
for several* hours, -had? been isplashlng

neither of them being able to swim.
Shortly before the catastrophe voo
curred, Oakley Fitzpatrick ' \ suggested
that they try divingk into- the deeper
water. He, had made several* plunges
and, managed to paddleback to safety.

Grave .differences which recently ap

anticipated Tat the close of the present

Strong appeals have been made to mem
bersiinthe hope that: the artists may
yet* be induced to ! reach an \u25a0> understand
ing. The ' secessionist movement, how
ever, t Is, said to .have, reached^ the. point
where plans have. been made for a new
school, with Piazzoni as the head.
.Serious .trouble at, the. institute was
first; reported two months ago. This
was \u25a0at the time of the. f all , exhibit,
arid the: dissatisfaction then .was aimed
at Captain Fletcher, . who - has been
curator, of lthe institute for eight years.
Some-? of ..the', artists were- displeased
with j the ; arrangements for; the display,
and this dissatisfaction; has developed
into .opposition to -the .'.present; policy
of 'the \u25a0school.'".- '- •„ . ; . -
It was openly stated at that tlme' T that
Piazzoni' would withdraw^ but a tem
porary 'truce .was arranged and '• Piaz
zoni remained^.. .The trouble has now
broken | out \ afresh- and the prediction
is freely made that Piazzoni will sever
his connection with the. school ' before
long. It is said that -he is eager .to
break away from'*- the \u25a0 present system
and -to inaugurate \u25a0 a more progressive
spirit. among the local* painters.
„ The secessionists have also .made, the
charge -that*" the off -in : meber
ship is due Cm'; large ipart: to the meth
ods in vogue.T' This has, given rise to
serious apprehension ,for the financial
side.of the school.' , . ;
'The institution suffered heavily in the
big fire; of April,- 1906.. The magnifi
cent Hopkins mansion: was laid In ashes
and;many of the famous works of art
were destroyed. Since then there has
been the expense- of a new building,
and in a measure the institution has
been compelled to wake an uphill
fight. - -
-.The school Is in-, reality a.- part -of
the . ; University of California, but it has
been under the control of a separate
board of trustees. Theodore "Wores. Is
the dean and the. following are 'the di
rectors: President, Vanderlyn Stow;
vice president, L. T. Latlmer ; secretary,
Sir Henry Heyman;' James D. Phelan, N.
