WIVES AND "AFFINITIES" TO
DECIDE FATE OF CAMINETTI
San Francisco, Aug. 25. When P.
Drew Caminetti is placed on trial to
morrow on charge of violating the
Mann white slave act it will be the
two wives and the "affinities" rather
than attorneys or jurymen who wiil
decide his fate, just as they did for
his convicted pal, Maury I. Diggs,
who faces a possible sentence of
twenty years for the same offense,
and who is at liberty under $20,000
As in the Diggs case, all four will
take the stand again, but in that case
illicit love, scorned, was victorious
over the repudiated but loyal affec
tion of the wives. Marsha Warring
ton got her bitter revenge when the
jury said "guilty."
With Caminetti there promises to
be a different angle. Though he has
apparently become reconciled with
his wife, he shows a lingering affec
tion for Lola Norris, and Lola Norris
has already testified that she still
Caminetti says he will not refute
any story she may tell and it is cer
tain that the girl will shield him.
It places Caminetti in a peculiar
position. If he remains true to his
declaration there is little, doubt but
that his wife will desert him and thus
rob him of one of his best witnesses.
If he attacks the story of Lola Nor
ris in order to gain the support of his
wife the girl is apt to adopt the tac
tics of Marsha Warrington and exert
herself to convict him.
Mrs. Drew Caminetti is all bitter
ness toward the girL "She robbed
me of my husband when my baby '-
was but four weeks old," she said. j
"Those girls are equally to blame .
with the men, and should be equally
punished. They are not young, un- j
sophisticated high school girls. Why, '
neither is more than three years ' ,
younger than I."
WOMAN COMES RIGHT BACK AT 5
MAYOR IN SLIT SKIRT DEAL :
Portland, Ore., Aug. 25. The
laugh is on Mayor Albee. Not long '
ago he issued an anti-slit and trans- ;
parent skirt order and the following :
is the letter he received in reply to it 1
from a young woman:
"You surely will excuse this appeal, i,
as your notice did not give informa-
tion concerning the length and width i
of skirts. I am about to. do my fall
shopping and am afraid of trans-
grossing in cut or style, so would you i
accommodate me by helping me to I
select proper apparel?"
The mayor tried to make a digni- i
fied exit out of the trap by advising
the young lady that "most of the late t
extreme styles in dresses have found t 1
favor in the underworld, where the
unfortunates who live there have
seized upon them as a means of f
furthering their illegal business." But i
Portland has refused to takethe
mayor's answer seriously and he ad- -J
mits he rather wishes he had not t j
tried to interfere in the feminine "
dress question. I J
Meanwhile Chief of Police Martin- r
son of Minneapolis states women I
may "wear slit or transparent skirts
as much as they wish."
"I disagree with the Portland ,
mayor who ordered the police to ar- ' 5
rest women wearing such garments,"
he said. "Women's clothing is up to i
the wearers and not to the police.
Let them go as far as they, like." t
