( Sept. 12.—(#>)—A man identified by police as Jess Ray Mowery, known in San Francisco as "the man with the hypnotic kiss," was in custody today. Police Chief James McMenamin, who said his prisoner had been "satisfactorily identified" as Mowery, notified San Francisco police, who were on their way here to return him to the coast where he is wanted on bigamy charges. The prisoner denied he was Mowery. Mowery was dubbed "the man with the hypnotic kiss" after two women charged he married them after captivating them with his kisses. The complaints were sworn out in February, 1938, by Mrs. Vivian K. Mowery of Martinez and Mrs. Laura Alvina Smith Mowery of San Francisco. San Francisco police quoted Mrs. Vivian Mowery as expressing .belief Mowery used a narcotic on his victims. Detective Inspector Frank Ferretti of Atlantic City said a local woman had charged the prisoner with obtaining $350 from her after promising to marry her.
