There was much intermittent weeping and wailing liy the husband and wife and the boys dur'ng the hearing, together with itlnnnl nnd dramatic features which kept Jjhe court at a 'high tension. throughout the proceedings, not the least of which wns Mr?, flalbralth's .sensational denunciation of her husband as a dajiger-ous man when he appeared inr eourtjwith his attorney and her demand f .the court thnt Oalbralth be searched ' there and then for a revolver which she' declared he was carrying for the purpose of transporting her beyond the River Styx. "Frisk" Galbraith In order to naclfv the agitatM , 'woman Judge Harris called upon Deputy Sheriffs "Llese and Illgucra. who were present, to "frisk" Galbraith. This operation was performed thoroughly and quickly, while, the husband stood trembling with pent up emotion and his hands as high above his head as his arms could place them,1 but no weapon was found. Then the court Tr;Vr."d the hearing to proceed. Several times during the hearing the little boys ' screamed, .is much from fright as anything else, while both Galbraith and his wife glowered at each other and burst into' fits of weeping. Mrs. Oalbralth became so demonstrative at times that JudKe Harris had to admonish,., her to .restrain herelf under pain of. being excluded from the rourt room. Weeps on Court Steps When the court announced at the end of the hearing that he would not separate Abe children from their . mother on the ' showing made by the husband, Galbraith groped his way out of the building blinded wiht tears and eased his heart with a good old-fashioned cry on the front steps.-Then he disappeared up the street. Galbraith claimed to the court that hla wife had ignored his letters asking her to Join him In Oregon with the children and without his knowledge or consent disappeared from her home in Oakland with the chlldreri. He traced them to Napa and going here from the northern adjoining State ecured possession of the children on a writ of habeas corpus made returnable In the Superior Court here, the sheriff f ,Xapa county being In control pending;, the outcome of the contest. This brought the entire family buck to Oakland and before Judge Harris. Trouble With Woman . According to the testimony adduced, Mrs. L. T. Cananca. who roomed with the Galbraiths In Oakland, was the subject 4q some violent contentions betweerl the fcquple before they separated. Galbraith ' thoiig'ht that she was not a' fit person for his wife to associate with, Jteiling tho; court that he -found her and a bartender by the riame of McMann together In her room one morning "about 4 o'clock, j When ho attempted -.' to go . Into the toom to eject the hit gjest his wife Interfered, and In pu.sh.lng her hslde he accidentally struck her ln; the mouth. Mrs. Galbraith denied this, however, ajid testified that later In the Dame day j and during another quarrel over Mrs. Cajianca, Galbraith waded in n.nd gave her a terrible beating, blackening' her yM and discoloring and .disfiguring hot face.

DJ HAMLIN, prominent Oakland physician, who ' has returned from the, East, where he visited some of the largest hospitals. 1 Dr. O. D.. Hamlin, division surgeon of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company and chief surgeon of thejcounty Receiving Hospital, returned from the East last evening afteT- an. extended tour of all the principal hospitals. Dr. Hamlin enjoyed a much-needed rest, while at the same time he studied hard i- . i' at some of the hospitals. ' Several months ago Dr. Hamlin was appointed division surgeon hf the Southern Pacific Company, hoping that the work of that corporation would not take up too much j of his time. It transpires,, however, that there is a great deal of labor attached to the railroad oft)ce, an! as a result Dr. Hamlin is contemplating: pre-sentlng his resighatton- Besides belfag chief surgeon of the County. Receiving' Hospital, Dr. Hamlin has a very large private practice, which, taking his many operations IritOj consideratlo.n,. requires almost his constant attention. At i Medical Convention When Dr. Hamlin left Oakland "he ' was. accompanied (by Dr. George. D. Reinle. Together they went -directly toj (jihicago, and "thence, to Baltimore, where they spent considerable time at Johns Hopkins University, having a splendid opportunity to witness many surgical cases. Theuce ' to. Atlantic City, -where Dr. Hamlin presented his credentials as delegate from the State of California to the. American Medical Association. He remained in Atlantic City during the convention, taking part In the proceedings From there Dr. Hamlin went to New York.'ljPhiladelphia. Washington, Boston, Montreal and ; many other large cities! He returned oyer the Canadian Pacific, stopping at Seattle to visit the ' fair. Lack of Confidence 'T have returned to Oakland and California very enthusiastic regarding the 'prospect of inly own State and county,' said Dr. Hamlin this morning. "In j this dounty we! possess a great clinhate; we have a great soil that can produce almost-anything, and we-have a great people, but it is sad lorelate that we lack just one thing, confidence in ourselves, and the spirit of unaniniously boosting for, our selves, j "Coming! from Seattle, as I have, I can see this sm -it lacking in our community. When you I Wo -into the city of Seattle, it would seiem1' that everj man, woman and child points of their city $ anxious to show, you tiie iytteret. They want t.-j show jft to the very best Advant age. Theyjjmake you fee"at hom. They point out tb .you the possibilities j-of the section. Tfee'y. want to try to get you to invest you; jrhoney in their conimunity. Oakland Should Boost "In Alamfda County, you will find every condition that goes to make aVommunitv prosperous.; So It seems to me that our people do, not take advantage of these things. They do not seem to have the boosting spirit in Oakland as you find in Seattle. We have many things In this county that you cannot find In Seattle, j. yet It seems to me that we do not - make the best of our advantages. "In Seattle they are tearing down the hills to' nia.ke boulevards and good roads. They are going to re-bond themselves again in order to ', Secure funds to ' build up the community, j These things struck me very forcibly when I was in the fair city of the north, and I could not help reflecting back to recent days when the Board of Supervisors of Alameda county were severely criticized for building the foothill boulevard, one of the greatest scenic roads of the country; the road;' that has brought fame to Alameda county, you might say all over the world. ' . Good Roads Needed "After traveling around, It seems, to me tl!at the people of Alameda' county cannot , spend too much money on good roads. They are the life ' of a commu nity. The County of Alameda, should bond itself for not less than a million dollars, to begin with, to Improve Its roads, to build new boulevards, and to I take advantage of all the good things ! that nature has given usi "I do not want , It to. be understood' that I am finding fault with or criticising the public officials. The fault, in my opinion, does not He with them. The lack of the boosting spirit and the taking advantage of our natural situations stems to be lacking. I believe the future of the whole racific coast is brighter than n:iy other part of the United States. It is hound to come to the whole coast, but the quicker the people takeadvan-t age of the natural locations, the quicker tliis great progress that awaits them will come to each community. Spend More Money "Alameda county is right, and its officials are all right, but 'the people must not be afraid to! spend some money. You cannot get the goods unless you spend the money. You cannot havt good roads, fine parks and the progressive spirit unless you spend the money and show the people what they can get by being progressive ii in voting bonds to help themselves. A little a hlition to an individual's taxes aOiojinta to . practically nothing when thtf aflvantare to him will be a tenfold increase In his property. let us have gooj roads, good working spirit, and lotus all get together, andwork to make this the greatest c ity in ; the' West.

MARRIED Alcohol Not Affection Brought About Wedding to "Dodie" Valencia, He Says ASKS THE COURT FOR ANNULMENT OF CEREMONY Never Consented--He Says it "Was "the Rum That Was .Talking" SAX FRAXCTSCO, J'ine 29. "Jimmy" Dunphy, who was wed in Redwood City two weeks agrt, has just discovered it. At least so he aps. i ts in a complaint for annulment of I the ceremonies filed yesterday, in which he asks that "Dodie" Valencia, the woman of the tenderloin, who. is now Mrs. Iunphy, be forced to give him back his name, which he placed at her service, he maintains, w'.iile his mental faculties were submerged in copious libations of golden. bubbling "lughter of the peasant girls of France," and he "knew not what he did." ilatiimonully, Dimpliy. who is a reputed millionaire, stems :o be out of luck. His first venture in the field came a icropper when he discovered that his wife, the muvh-ma tried Mrs. Coffee-Sanderhaus-Silverstone-Dunphy, had neglected a few formalities in obtaining a divorce from Judge Silverstone, his immediate predecessor, and was not In reality his wife. Then followed a separation. Xow the first Mrs. Dunphy is married again and so is "Jimmy," only he hates to admit, it. Alcohol Not Affection Yesterday, In :: a petition for annulment tiled with the County Clerk, he says that It was alcohol, and not i affection, which jled him to take his second trip to the aMjar." . The marriage to; the Valencia woman took place at' Redwood City. "At that time." says the petitioner, "the plaintiff was so intoxicated irom alcoholic drinks that he had no roniDiehenslon of what he was doing." He never consented to the marriage, he declares, : evidently on the .theory that it Was "the.-'rum talking" when he made the responses. But she - heartless woman - claims to he his wite. Continuously Intoxicated The dream of love or of alcohol seems to have persisted for several days, for the ' plaintilf alleges that "for many days prior to the performance of s iid ceremony, . and ever since un til this . Jfith day of June, 1009." he was "continnously intoxicated, and so tinder the influence of alcoholic drinks that at no time during said period did he have normal' control of his mental faculties.''. From the complaint It appears that Dunphy came to himself "at about the hour of 6 o'clock a. m. on this lkh day of June aforesaid," and he claims that he lost no time in putting a large number of city !bkek3 between himself and the womaa he promised to love, honor and cherish. lie is quite horrified at having married while he was, as it were, absent minded. Still that ; cruel creature claims to be his wife, ' and, unless the court so orders, will not for-pot the little incident down at Redwood City. - - :' ' . I HURT ffl CYCLIST Wheelman Attempts to Escape After Breaking Leg of I His Victim HAYWARD, June 2. John Costa, residing, on D street, was seriously injured last Sunday hy William C. Thompson, 2931 Broderlck street, San Francisco, who ran him., down on hris motorcycle which he was riding on the sidewalk. Leaving his victim with his right, leg and foot broken, the ' cyclist attempted to make his escape, but' was prevented from doing so by James O'Xeil, an eyewitness, who stopped him. . The injured man was attended bv Dr. Reynolds, who reduced the fracture, and he was then removed to the Alameda Sanitarium. s Or TOO MUCH WINE AT PRODIGAL SON FEAST ' ENDS HWAMILfROW SAX LEAXDRO, June 29. With his face and clothes covered with blood, a gash in his forehead, his eyes closed and his entire face bruised and battered almost from any semblance to that of a human being, I Marlon Cabral, residing on Orchard avenue, appeared before Justice of the Peace J. X. Frank yesterday and swore to a complaint charging Frank Avdrade, a brotherrin-law, with battery. As several other - members of the two families were mixed un in the affair, it is likely other warrants Will follow. : . Just how the trouble started, not even the belig?rantif seem to be able to tell, but all agree that they were ciehrating the return of Marion's prodigal son, Manual Cabral, who had just been set free from the Oakland jail, where he hed been confined on. a petty charge. The pro-veroinl fatted calf was sacrificed, only this time ;t was a chicken that occupied the center of the feast table. Wine, too, was served in copious quantities, and it -was probably this fact that caused the battle. Too Much Liquor Bottle jafter bottle of the liquor was consumed by the merrymakers.- And then, almost before they knew it, they were fighting. Biting,' and kicking, wrestling and rblling on the floor, they fought. Cribfal, who Is an aged man. was knocked to the floor, he says, by Andrade and the others, who used clubs. " His teeth were knocked out and he was left senseless on the floor. When he recovered, the others had disappeared. the room was a shafrnbles and all that was left of the feast wero some chicken bones and a number of empty bottles. IN 1WN A! f BETRAYE1 Brother, Who. Shot to Protect Honor of Sister, Is Freed by Jury KILLED HIM WHEN HE REFUSED TO WED GIRL Bride Taken From Husband of a Week by Youth Who Was Slain CHICAGO, June 29. The Cnwritten law" was sustained today by a jB-ry in Judge Kersten's court which freed Michael Paccllano, charged with the murder of Frank Sereno, as a result of Sereno's betrayal of Pacellano's sister. The de fendant's sister, Mrs. Josephine Frosso,- was a brida of only a wiaek, when Sereno persuaded her to leave her husband. .. According to Pacellano's defence, fee-reno took her to New York and placed her amid questionable surroundings. The brother followed and brought both back to Chicago, Sereno having promised to marry Mrs. Fresso after a divorce had been secured. When the party left the train here Sereno declared he" would have nothing more to do with the girl. The shooting followed. ; Noted Actress' Portrayal of "Salvation Nell" is Master-' I piece of Stagecraft . ... r - . "Watt,: wait a moment, Jim; I want you to! take me home," and with thesi words,' spoken In a low tone, radiant features and eyes a-gllstening with tears of mingled gratitude, victory and rejoic-irig, the curtain dropped for tha last time list night on "Salvation Xell," at Liberty1 Theater, with Mrs. Flske In the title role. . " . 1 ! The words quoted were spoken by the heroino. at the close of a long" sustained characterization which, while not entirely new, has many features which were never before adequately portrayed by an actress in the experience, of people who, for a couple of generations, have been patrons; of the theater. The play has a great deal to do-wlth the' Salvation Army but, so dexeriously have tile-' scenes - been designed, it is Impossible for the agnostic or the Salvationist to complain, the one because there has been interjected info the play too much religion cr the other because there has not be-in enough. '; p. Nell Makes Speech In the course of the luece there Is but one "army" meeting, and at that there are but two speeches delivered, One of which Is by Salvation Nell. The saving power of Christ Is feelingly set forth, showing the love of the Savior for mankind. In fact, love of human kind is the' dominating theme of her curbstone .talk and, in the tone of the' actress' tearful voice, the auditor realizes that she has in, mind (a dirty,' brutal, licentious vagabond, criminal and sinner, with Whom she herself has sinned," but whom she has almost despaired of re forming and who she knows is within sound of her voice. A few moments before her effort In appealing to the curbstone auditors. Sal vation Xell tenderly and regretfully shows her partner in shame how her purpose for her future has placed a seemingly , impossible chasm between him and her, but the love instinct is not eradicated, hence love is the subject of her discourse. s The vagabond skulks on the rim of the crowd and Is apparently touched to the core by tha words of the woman whom he has .basely treated artd At-ceived and whom he could still drag to 'more lowly depths with him. Climax of Plot The - sinner's heart, however, seems to je touched. He shuffles nearer the circle taaversed by Salvation Xell in her quest for contributions and awkwardly tosses Into the tamboraine of the girl possibly the last nickel of' a debauchee. This is the climax of the play. The girl looks upon this display .of liberality as an evidence of a regenerated heart. Immediately her features radiate with joy and contentment. The thug, ' the brute, the jailbird, the libertine has been conquered. - Love, rendered pure by , the 'elimination of dross through , the ' trans muting effect of association with people morally pure, has triumphed. i ; It is not a thrilling scene on which to1 have a curtain drop for the purpose of evoking applause, but it was in keeping' With Mrs. Fiske's style of acting and stage, business. The same may be said of ..the position assumed by every performer, every movement in the play. 'There was not a melodramatic move or gesture or tone In the play. Every actor sought to be the character which he or she was supposed to he in real life. The result was the most perfect portraiture of life among the lowly, the vulgar, the depraved in a great city which has ever been presented on the boards of Oakland. Vivid Scenes The scene comprised a saloon with loafers, drunkards, lunch . fiends and thugs. With It. in close relationship, ;were more debasing dens of vice and their noisy, gaudy, flippant, shameless inmates; a room in a tenement house and a section of the slums. In which there was a heterogeneous collection of wretched mortals, ill-fed, unkempt, ragged ; and shoeless1 children, and the hoodlum abandon of youth arid age when beyond- the domination of sentiment or propriety. - ; - -" It was really a case of shimming, but there was noperson in the Immense audience, which Ifilled the auditorium to the roof, who was not satisfied with the out- ing. It was; a great i production, but greater was the actingfof Mrs. Fiske and her company. The stac has well shown her worthiness of thartasitlon she holds m RSKE SHOWS , SPLENDID ABILITY ; ' f ' m MRS.
