SPRING VALLEY
IS ACCUSED OF
SHARP PRACTICE
Report on City Purchase
Published in Papers Dif
fers From Copies Fur
nished Supervisors
TRANSIT TO FAIR
TO BE CONSIDERED
Extension of Geary Road
Into Market Street Is Pro
vided For
Supervisors Giannini and Murphy
took exception yesterday during the
meeting of the board of supervisors to
< ortain statements in the report of the
Spring Valley purchase negotiations
'■ommittee which was published in the
dally newspapers last week.
Mayor Rolph stated that the city's ad
visory committee would make a public
reply to the report. •
Mr. Glannini said that some of the
statements of the water company's com
mittee were misleading and misrepre
sentations and required an answer.
Mr. Murphy called attention to the
printed copies of the report which were
received from the company by the su
pervisors. He said that the report dif
fered in one respect from that which he
saw in an afternoon newspaper, since
the report given to the supervisors
omitted a paragraph which lie saw in
the paper.
This missing: paragraph informed the
public that Secretary of the Interior
Fisher had declared that the city must
buy Spring Valley before it could hope
to receive the Hetch Hetchy grant.
.Mr. Murphy suggested that the clerk
of the board write to sipring Valley to
aj|cer*a.in whether this paragraph was
omitted "inadvertently or intentionally."
It was finally decided that the city's
advisory water committee should deal
with the subject.
WILL CONSIDER TRANSPORTATION
At the request of Mayor Rolph the
board decided to hold a special session
tomorrow afternoon when a discussion
will be held with directors of the Pan
ama-Pacific exposition as to the ways
and means of providing proper trans
portation facilities to th* l fair grounds.
Owing to this Supervisor George Galla
gher .asked that action be postponed on
his resolution providing for a municipal
railway in Van Ness avenue.
The board adopted a resolution tall
ing on the United Railroads to extend
the Brarman street lLne to the Pacific
Mail docks and expressing t"he city's
willingness to grant the company a per
mit to install a switch at Presidio ave
nue and California street so that empty
cars might by taken to the Clement
street carbarn.
If the company builds the extension
to the Mail docks, which requires only
a block of track in First street and an
outlay of $5,000, the city wifl grant the
switch permit.
Supervisor Giannini introduced a ree
olutfon which was referred to the public
utilities-committee urging that the Ellis
and Fourth street cars be run through
to the Southern Pacific depot.
PHONE RATES CREATE DISCORD
Y\'ires crossed and sparks flew when
Supervisor George Gallagher declared
that the present telephone rates were
exorbitant and suggested in a resolu
tion that the supervisors' telephone
rates committee seek the aid of the
state railroad commission to fix the
. rates for the next fiscal year. Members
of the telephone committee told Mr.
Gallagher that he was attempting to
"interfere and dictate" and that they
had been conferring with the commis
sion.
Mr. Gallagher replied that as a mem
ber of the board lie. had a right to in
troduce any resolution for the good of
the people, and said that a conference
with the commission might prevent the
expenditure of $40,000 for a special elec
tion, for which the Telephone Users' as
sociation has petitioned for a reduction
of rates.
On motion of Supervisor Vogelsang,
the resolution introduced by Mr. Gal
lagher was referred to the telephone
committee.
WORD "SUMCIPAL" IXDER BAX
The municipal clinic, conducted at 682
Commercial street, must not use the
word "municipal," according to a reso
lution introduced by Supervisor Mur
dock and adopted in modified form. Mr.
Murdock explained that the use of the
name "mueicipal" implies that the
agency is conducted and controlled by
the city government, and hence is mis.
leading. It was opened by the health
board under the McCarthy administra
tion, but is not connected with the
municipal government.
Supervisor Hayden urgred the board
to support the bill introduced in con
gress by Representative John E. Raker
providing for $34,973.30 for the re
habilitation of the old United States
steamer Portsmouth, which, in July,
1564, took possession of San Francisco
in the name of the United States. The
question was referred to the publicity
committee for a report.
Final approval was given by the
board to the contract between the city
and the San Francisco Musical associa
tion for the erection of the municipal
opera house on civic center land. The
way now is clear for the erection of ;
the monumental building.
GEARY ROAD EXTENSION*
For the extension of the Geary street
load from Kearny street down Market
to Sansome and thence along the outer
tracks to the ferry, the supervisors
passed a resolution directing the clerk
to advertise for bids for the purchase
of $120,006 Market Street Railway
honds, being a special issue for the
purpose of meeting the cost of the two
blocks of track. The bids v/ill be
•uwied February 17. Another resolu
tion was passed to print ordering the
i onstructkm of the extension.
City Attorney Long's redraft of the
tunnel procedure ordinance was passed
to print. In conformance with the
recent charter amendment it makes
possible the acquirement of land for
tunnel approaches, stations and other
accessories and provides for the con
struction of the tunnel, all under one
pi ocedure.
Setting forth that the growth of the
city is being retarded because of un
paved streets, Supervisor Gianntni in
troduced- a resolution requesting the
i,*ty engineer to take steps leading to
tho improvement of all open and un
accepted streets where the property is
of sufficient value to bear the street
work assessment. The resolution was
referred to the street committee.
The board decided to accept the in
vitation of the state harbor commis
sion to participate in the public exer
cises which will be held Saturday,
March 8, in celebration of ihe comple
tion of the connecting link at the ferry
httween the northern and southern sec
tions of the belt railroad.
Secretary Churchill of the board of
works was authorized to advertise for
bids for the construction of the Jones

tion. The tank will be built of rein
forced concrete and have a capacity of
750,000 gallons. It will be situated in
the block bounded by Sacramento, Clay,

The ordinance ordering the construc

ON PEAK OF TAMALPAIS
Tourists From Cleveland
Given Excursion to Many '
Scenic Points
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
SAN RAFAEL. Feb. 3. —Tourists from
the 'round the world steamship Cleve
land were the guests of the Marin
County Promotion league today on a
sightseeing trip that included a ban
quet on the crest of Mount Tamalpais.
More than 200 of the globe trotters
were met at the station, loaded into 50
automobiles furnished by the promotion
league and the local lodge of Elks and
whirled away over the hills and
through the valleys to the foot of the
mountain.
Stops were made at San Anselmo,
Kentfield, Ross, Corte Madera and other
Ross valley towns, and at every halt
the occupants of the machines gave ex
pression to admiring comment on the
natural beauty of the scenery.
At Mill Valley the guests inspected
the fa-mous old mill, from which the
town derives its name, and were photo
graphed.
The mountain top was reached at 2
o'clock, when tables were spread.
In the speeches that followed the
banquet there w.as evidence that the
gathering was a veritable congress o£i
nations. J. J. Mazza, president of the
Marin County Promotion league, acted
as toastmaster, and the secretary of
the league, Newton E. Clemenson,
greeted the visitors with an address of
welcome.
Charles Vogelsang, speaking for the
Panama-Pacific Exposition company,
extended an invitation "to his hearers
to return to San Francisco in 1915.
Rev. C. C. Champlin, chaplain of the
Cleveland, carried the message of the
"ship's company." Then in the order
named the following speakers brought
greetings from their respective cor
ners of the earth: A. Robinson, Salem,
N. T.; J. H. Hunt, Toronto, Canada, and
H. Hermance, Berlin, Germany.
On the return trip many of the tour
ists tried the novelty of a ride down
the mountainside on the gravity cars.
They rode to Mill Valley, where they
awaited the arrival of the rest, to re
turn with them to San Francisco.
When the tourists returned from
Mount Tamalpais on the ferry boat in
the evening they saw the ferry tower
in San Francisco lighted and read the
sign welcoming them to return in 1915.
This was done in their special honor by
the state board of harbor commis
sioners.

WOMEN TAKE NOTICE!
A man cannot understand the torture and suffering many women endure
uncomplainingly. If the majority of men suffered as much pain and endured with
patience the weakening sicknesses that most women do, they would ask for
immediate sympathy and look for a quick cure.
Many women have been saved from a life of misery and suffering by turning
to the right remedy—Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription—a remedy which is safe
to take because containing no narcotics, alcohol or injurious ingredients. It is an
alterative extract of roots, made with pure glycerin, and first given to the public
by that famous specialist in the diseases of women—Dr. R. V. Pierce, of the
Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N. Y.
tMRs. Lizzie M. Hessheimer, of Lincoln, Neb., 529 «C " St.,
says: "I send a testimonial with much pleasure so that some
suffering woman may know the true worth of your remedies.
I was a great sufferer from female troubles but after taking
one bottle of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription, which a
friend advised me to take, I found myself very much im
proved. After taking three more bottles, and using two
boxes of Dr. Pierces Lotion Tablets, I found myself on the
road to recovery. I was in poor health for five years but
now I am cured.
"I hope all women suffering from female weakness will
give Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription a fair trial.

MUSICAL COMEDY
JOY TO REGULARS
Catchy Songs and Merry
Dialogue Offering at
Alcazar
Chorus Dances and Sings in
Fashion Sprightly and
Pleasing
WALTER ANTHONY
Evelyn Vaugtian was glad last week.
She is "gladder" this. The mists of
"The Dawn of a Tomorrow" rose on j
"The Talk of New York." and the Alca
zar company went on a lark. What if
they do play "The Third Degree" next
week—or whenever it is that they will
be permitted by unlikely indifference
to put on the Klein play—they are
musical comedy folk this week and
the production is like a vacation out
ing for them. "Whatever you may be
led to believe by the make believe
talent of regular mttsical comedy com
panies, they are really. at work. It
mjty Ecrjm \o you that tney are eating
in cafes, visiting the r<i"ea, or out f °r
a high old frolfe, according to the plot.
but the players are in reality hard at
work. The prima donna, wants to make
a hit emd get a bigger salary; the tenor
resents the hit that the leading lady
makes with her song and thinks if he
had her position in the act he would
do much bettei , . The comedian has
just finished a row because the char
acter woman is stealing ljis laughs
and thp "feeder" falls down in his
cues. The little world of jealousy is
big enough for the individuals in the
chorus, who are certain that they in
dividually have the soubrette beat, and
so they sro on working at the game of
merriment and their smiles die at the
•wings.
But it's very different at the Alca
zar. The staid stock company is just
in musical comedy for a week or two,
and Bennison enjoys Ruggles , hit as
much as Ruggles likes Bennison's
musical comedy work. Miss Irene
Outtrira, who has a. song and dance,
makes as much of a hit with Miss
Uhea Mitchell, who has one, too. as the
latter does with her: while the whole
company not in dressing rooms stands
about in the shadows to listen to Eve
lyn Vaughan sing "I'm Lonesome To
night," which isn't on that account, to
say nothing of the big audience, true
in the least. And as for Bert Lytell,
he revels in the role of Kid Burns and
eases his* mind of many lyrics, sur
rounded by a wreath of girls, just as
though musical comedy were his nat
ural habitat and he. as a regular musi
cal comedy comedian always is, re
conciled with hi« singing: voice. For
be it said that Lytell is like the best
of musical comedy funny men in two
important particulars. He is funny and
he sings very badly—not as badly as
Sam Bernard, of course, but then he
compensates by being much funnier.
It is the spirit that invests an Alca
zar performance of musical comedy
that makes it a joy to the ••regulars"
at the Belasco house. The grin became
general when 15.?nnison started things
by singing "Follow Your Dudley,"
which everybody did whether he was
accompanied by the chorus girls or
merely by Cohan's plot.
The music was brightly sung by the
chorus girls and the dances were neatly
executed. The costumes were fresh and
pretty and, speaking of costumes, I
want to pay my respects to Evelyn
Vaughn's gown, which was a chromatic
symphony played in the key of orange
and had a trail that ended with the
graceful flourish of a mermaid's finish.
It was certainly some gown, as Kid
Burns would say. It was slashed up
in front for purposes of disclosing
clouds of lace, and In other respects it
was not at all like her glad rags of
last week.
The story of the play Is still about
"Kid' , Burns, with the slangy vocabu
lary and the big heart. Bert Lytell
exhibited both in n!ce Cohanesque
propositions. Charles Ruggles made a
great success with an interpolated
Dutch song afcout Lena, surrounded by
the pretty Lenas of the chorus. He
took as many encores as his breath
would permit and then whistled it in
a manner truly vaudevillian. Ruggles
might, but will not, I hope, be a spe
cialty artist over the Orpheum. He has
the unction and ease and is "there"
with the undetected tricks of the old
time variety performer, who flourished
when Ruggles was weeping for more
milk.
There was a flag song sung by
Lytell with Cohanesque insouciance,
and girls dressed up in red, white and
blue to make it more patriotic. Every
thing went last night with the joyous
ness of a lark, In which performer and
listener seemed always to take spon
taneous pleasure.

WAR TIME OPERA
PLEASES CROWD
Scenery in "Andre Chenier"
Appreciated Equally With
the Singing
F. Nicoletti Stars in Lam
bardi Company's Pro
duction
"Andre Chenie,r-" one of the two
great operas by Umberto Giordano,
which is founded on incidents in the
life of the distinguished poet during:
tbe French, revolution, was p:v?sented
at the Valencia theater last night by
Lambardfs Pacific coast grand opera
company. A fair size audience ex
pressed Us appreciation of the artists'
efforts with enthusiastic applause.
Agostini in the role of Chenier
evoked memories of his appearance in
the came part in 1902, when the opera
was presented in this country for the
first time. The extraordinary close at
tention to detail in the utage settings,
however, won as much praise from cer
tain quarters in the audience as the
singing.
The ballroom of an oIJ French cha
teau was depicted in the first act, and
incidents in the action of the opera
disclose some of the feeling prevalent
at the beginning of the revolution.
Gerard, a servant, was a powerful
figure as presented by F. Nicoietti.
Madeline (&. Adaberto>, the daughter
of the hostess of the ball, is shocked |
when her guests are insulted by the
servant, who strips himself of his My- >
cry and leaves his of bondage.
The place in front of tlie Cafe Hot- I
tot showing the Terrasse dcs Feuil- |
lants witli (he Perronnet bridge across i
thf Seine and Notre Dame in the back
ground made an interesting picture in j
the second act when Gerard, no longer j
a servant, but an official supporting J
Robespierre, and Chenier, suspected of j
being an enemy of the revolutionary '
cause, fight with swords and Gerard is !
wounded.
Chenier escapes , and Rouchpr (G.
Martino), a friend of the poet, cares for .
Madeline, whose tryst with Ohenier Ht i
the rate aroused the jealousy of Ger- |
ard. her former servant, and caused the
duel. Martino's bass voice was a great !
help to the second act, which was
filled with incidents descriptive of the j
reign of terror.
Massenet's Thais will be given to-1
night with Vicarino in the title role. |
It is stated that her interpretation of i
the- unfortunate character created by |
Anatole France, the French novelist,
differs altogether from the semi-bar
baric presentment of the role in the
original New York production. She
will follow more the ideas of the com
poser and present a young girl, though
tainted in the slough of life, not in
any way vicious.
Maestro Bovl will conduct the beau
tiful score. The full cast follows:

will be given with the same cast as
before, "including Vicarino, Agostini,
Nicoietti, Blanche Hamilton Fox, and
Martind. "Andrea Chenier" will be re
peated on Thursday night, and Mas
cagni's tuneful "Amico Fritz" will be
given for the only time on Friday
