away." He had heard "Dago Frank"
say, he testified, that Police Lieutenant
Becker, since convicted of instituting

PROPER JAIL SANITATION
Investigation Under Way of Suit
Club Methods
The grand jury last night passed a
resolution directed at the supervisors
requesting that the board of health be
given all the money needed to put the

received by friends in this city yester
day announcement was made of the
engagement of Raymond Havemeyer,

and not Havemeyer who was betrothed
to Mrs. Bruguiere.

CIVIL WAR FOES
JOINED AT DEAD
HEROES' GRAVES
North and South Clasp Hands at
Confederate Cornerstone
Laying
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.—North and
south met and clasped hands over the
dead of the confederacy in Arlington
National cemetery today when the
United Daughters of the Confederacy
laid, the cornerstone of a great monu
ment to the' confederate dead. It was
the principal event today on the open
ing program of the association.
After former Secretary of the Navy
Hilary A. Herbert had laid the corner
stone, and William Jennings Bryan had
pronounced a dedicatory oration, laud
ing the dissipation of sectionalism, the
formal program of the day was con
cluded. But Colonel Herbert, as master
of ceremonies, surprised the throng of
spectators by calling on Corporal James
A. Tanner of the Grand Army of the
Republic, for the final word from the
north to the south.
PLEA FOR HARMONY
Corporal Tanner raised hlsf* hands
over the crowd and pleaded for the
ultimate elimination of sectional feel
ing.
Hundreds of members of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy surround
ed the stand where sat the- confederate
veterans and a group of widows of
confederate dead.
About the cornerstone as It was low
ered into place stood Colonel Herbert,
Mrs. Frank G. Odenhelmer, first vice
president of the Daughters of the Con
federacy, Corpora! Tanrler and Miss I
Mary Lee, daughter of General Robert
E. Lee.
The monument is to occupy a plat in
the center of the confederate section of
the national cemetery, where 260 of the
men who died in the southern are
buried.
HI SH WORK OX SHAFT
Following the laying of the corner
stone work on the confederate shaft is
to be pushed without delay, and the
officers of the Daughters of the Confed
eracy hope to unveil the monument be
fore the reunion of union and confed
erate veterans at Gettysburg battlefield
next July.
Sir Moses Ezekiel, the sculptor, has
practically completed the design, In
which a woman typifying the s»uth ex
tends a laurel wreath over the graves
of the dead, while her left hand rests
upon a plow.
SAN MATEO BONDS
FAVORED BY ROLPH
San Francisco's Chief Executive
Urges Adoption of Proposed
Road Issue
Jn response to numerous requests
Mayor James Rolph yesterday issued
the following statement relative to the
proposed bond issue before the people
of San Mateo county for the improve
ment of the roads of their county:
I have been asked to give ex
pression to my views regarding the
proposed bond issue before the peo
ple of San Mateo county for the
improvement of the roads in their
county. Jt is always with consid
erable hesitancy that I venture to
place myself in the position of ap
parently "meddling in my neigh
bor's affairs. In this instance the
publicity committee of the measure
has pressed me for my views on
this question. t
I am keenly Interested in every
optimistic public measure, and am
glad, at all times, to see construc
tion work under consideration in
every county, because whatever
they do has ah ' indirect bearing
upon the advancement of the city
of San Francisco. San Francisco
and San Mateo counties are par
ticularly closely allied in many
obvious ways. San Francisco
county is growing and her citizens,
by reason of her limited area, are
rapidly aiding in the growth of
San Mateo county. San Mateo
county has always been the home
of many whose occupation and em
ployment are in San Francisco.
Rapid transportation, a pure and
abundant water supply and good
roads are absolutely necessary for
the life and growth of every com
munity. In these vital public mat
ters, San Francisco and San Mateo
county have been sadly lacking, and
I am glad to see that the spirit of
the citizens of both communities is
a determination to remedy the con
ditions that have existed In the
past.
San Francisco is doing her best
to provide means to improve con
stantly her streets, and San Mateo
likewise, through the proposed
bond issue, intends to improve her
roads.
In my travels throughout the
east and abroad, I have seen no
more attractive home sites and
country villas than can be found
In beautiful San Mateo county, and
an early Improvement of the roads,
particularly at this time, prior to
the opening of the great canal and
the holding of the exposition in San
Francisco is of paramount impor
tance.
In my opinion public money could
not be more profitably expended at
this time than for good roads in
San Mateo county, with judicious
expenditure of the bond money
when once authorized by the peo-
P le - , _
I shall be glad to see the bond
issue carry, and as a» taxpayer in
San Mateo county, I urge its adop
tion.
5. F. SURGEON TELLS OF

CITY OBTAINS
ANOTHER STRIP
OF CIVIC LAND
Supervisors Buy Katschinski
Property and Other Owners
Will Accept Terms
A deal In the purchase of civic lands
was closed by the supervisors' public
buildings committee yesterday when
B. Katschinski accepted the city's offer
of $96,000 for his property. Other
owners of civic center land expressed
a willingness to accept terms, but no
agreement was reached.
It was agreed by the supervisors in
special session that all money secured
from the rent of civic center lands
should be placed in the civic center
fund instead of in the general fund.
The board adopted a resolution au
thorizing the treasurer to sell over the
counter the 3% per -cent 1904 school
bonds, $176,000 of which remain unsold.
TAR AND FEATHERS SUGGESTED
At the request of Supervisor Jenningß
a letter was read at the meeting of the
board in which R. F. Cassidy and Wil
liam A. Jones, joint authors of the mis
sive, asserted that any supervisor who
would vote to pay $1,400 for clocks for
a school should be tarred and feath
ered. They charged Jennings, as chairj
man of the finance committee, with
gross extravagance in approving a bill
of $1,400 from a contractor who fur
nished the clocks for the Lowell high
school.
Jennings explained that the contract
for the clocks had been awarded under
a former administration and that there
was nothing for him to do but approve
the bill.
He further explained that the bill
bore the approval of Consulting Archi
tect John Reid Jr. and officials of the
board of works.
BILLBOARD ORDINANCE
The supervisors' public welfare com
mittee will consider and probably recom
mend for passage this afternon the pro
posed ordinance regulating billboards. A
letter was received from J. Charles
Green yesterday, in which he stated that
he had been called east on important
business and asked the committee to de
fer action on the regulation of boards
for three weeks.
Action on the ordinance was to have
been taken by the committee yesterday,
but the special meeting of the board of
supervisors prevented the meeting.
Armed with the opinion of City Attor
ney Long, who advised that the city can
limit the height of boards to 10 feet,
impose a tax on the square foot basis
and designate districts in which the
height of the signs may vary, the com
mittee will probably recommend the
ordinance along the lines set forth in
the city attorney's opinion.

How to Beautify
Complexion and Hair
To retain a oharming complexion,
tender skins need better protection
against harsh, cold winds than is given
by face powder. There is no finer com
plexion beauttfler to be had than a
lotion made by dissolving i ounces of
spurmax in a half pint witch hazel (or
hot water) and adding 2 teaspoonfuls
of glycerine. While this lotion can not
be detected when applied to the face,
neck and arms, it transform* an ordi
nary complexion Into one of girlish at
tractiveness. It doe* not show or rub
off like faoe powder and is much easier
to apply. This spurmax lotion will
clear up and whiten any sallow skin
and make it youthful and charming.
It is unequaled for overcoming that
shiny, greasy look which 18 so trouble
some to so many ladies.
Quite a risk is taken in using "dry
I shampoos," for unless the powder Is
entirely brushed out it will clog up
the pores In the scalp and cause dan
druff. One can shampoo thoroughly
only by using water. A* lt Is danger
ous to use soap and most ready pre
pared shampoos, owing to the "free"
alkali they contalh, which tends to kill
the hair, making lt dull, faded and
streaky, most pleasing results will be
experienced from a shampoo made from
one teaspoonful of eanthrox dissolved
in a cup of hot water. This shampoo
lathers splendidly, cleanses thoroughly
and dries quickly. It will stop itching

SCHRANK PLEADS
GUILTY; MAY DE
'AD JUDGED CRAZY
Court Appoints Alienists to
Report Mental Condition of
Roosevelt's Assailant
MILWAUKEE. Nov. 12.—John Schrank,
pleading guilty today of attempting
to murder Theodore Roosevelt, did not
receive the quick disposition of his
case he had looked for. Instead, on
motion of District Attorney Zabel,
Municipal Judge A. C. Backus appointed
five alienists as a commission to act
as a part of his court in determining
the wouldbe slayer's mental condition.
Askeq if Theodore Roosevelt would
be summoned by Schrank, Attorney
Flanders said it was not likely, as
there probably was little light Colonel
Roosevelt could throw on the mental
condition of his assailant.
The procedure will be that If
Schrank be found mentally unsound,
he, standing beneath a plea of guilty of
attempted murder, would be held as an
insane criminal until he recovers, If he
does recover, when the punishment
based on his plea will be named by a
court of concurrent jurisdiction. jußt
as though there had not passed an in
terim in which Schrank was held as
Insane.
