and then George 'phoned ms to
meet him in Berkeley. I did so,
and we went immediately for the
license.
"So far my mother has refused
to become reconciled to the wed
ding. I think she will after a
while.
"Right after the marriage I tel
egraphed to Edwards, informing
him of what I had done. He wired
back his congratulations. I expect
to hear from him again in a day or
so. He had gone back east to set
tle up his affairs, preparatory to
bur wedding and honeymoon to
the Orient."
Mrs. J. L. McKinnon, mother
of Mrs. Bullock, stated last night
that a reconciliation between her
and her daughter was impossible.
"I do not like the way in which
GVIr. Bullock married my daugh
ter, and that is the cause of our
trouble," said Mrs. McKinnon.
"Aillene was engaged to Mr. Ed
wards, and I felt that she should
not have other men come to see
her. That is why we objected to
Bullock, and that is the real cause
of our trouble."
Bullock was introduced to his
.wife while crossing to San Fran
cisco on a ferryboat five days be
fore the elopement.
SAYS JUDGES ARE WRONG.
Boston, Mass., July 25. "The
judges of the lower courts, by
their sentences, seem to think that
any striker charged with crime
should be sent to prison, guilty or
not guilty.
"I certainly propose to stand
fcetween the people and such low
er courts 3s have sq lost their rea
son. These were the statements to
day of District Attorney Joseph
C. Pelletier, who has been roused
to a high pitch of indignation by
the persecution of the striking
elevated railroad employes.
"In some of the cases," said
Pelletier, "the complaint has been
ridiculous, such as charging rob
bery where simple larceny would
be difficult to prove.
"As for the sentences they
have been outrageous, such as 3
and 6 months for calling 'scab';
1,2 or 3 years for simple assault.
Such sentences are not tolerable
under present day conditions."
The truth is that the situation
in Boston has been much the same
as has been in so many parts of
the country. A man on strike has
been looked upon as a criminal,
not because of any criminal ac
tion, but simply because he Was
on strike, and any complaint
against him was sure to be upheld
by the courts.
The state board of arbitration
reported, a few days ago, that the
strike was caused by the company
and that the company ought to be
prosecuted under the state law
forbutding an employer to dis
charge an employe because of his
affiliation with a labor union.
The special session of the
grand jury has called before it
William A. Fancroft, president of
the Boston "L," regarding the
charges that officials of the road
perjured themselves during the
state arbitration board's investigation.
