S^lN FRANCISCO, MONDAY,; -15^ rI9Q9:
PROF. GRAVES
WANDERS DAZED
AND WOUNDED
Mystery Surrounds Predica*
men t of Oakland High
. School Instructor
Loses Memory and Goes to the
Ferry With Gash in Throat
and Many Bruises
Suffering intense
agonY \u25a0 from • an
ugly gash in his
throat and numer
ous other lacera
tions and bruises
on .his body,
Walter H. Graves,,
professor of lan
guage s, in the
Oakland high
school and distin
guished among
scholars as an
eminent authority
upon the Greek
language, talked
blindly into the
ferry building,
early yesterday
morning and 'was
taken to the harbor- emergency hospital
by. Policeman Casey. The story, related
by Graves — and 'that portion of his ex
periences which he has been unable to
tell — enveloped him in a -deep mystery,
which the police have been unable to
unravel- > *: , n
For six hours Saturday night Graves
wandered aimlessly about "the city/ and
so.far as is known was not seen by
any person. From a" jumbled account
of his experiences, .which he narrated
at the harbor, hospital,' he fell victim
to thugs shortly after. 5 o'clock Satur
day afternoon, when' he left the Prin
cess theater, where he, had witnessed
the matinee performance. \u25a0 From- that
time until 1:30 o'clock Sunday morning,
when , he* was found at the ferry build
ing, his mind , was a plank and^hls at
tempts to explain—^way the mysteries
of his evening of harrowing . experi
ences only, served to make tne ; affair
more puzzling. , . . c .
Loses His Memory
. When seen at his home, 142S Seventh
avenue, Oakland, yesterday afternoon
he made a feeble effort to tell what
had occurred just before his mind had
been dimmed. \u25a0 According to this state
ment he had taken two drinks in a sa
loon near the Princess theater."' One_ of
these . visits to the saloon was' made
during. the intermission inthe perform
ance and the other at its close".'
"After that," he said ' yesterday, "I
can not remember what happened, and
I am even unable to relate what hap
pened to me at the harbor hospital."
The police rwere inclined to' believe
that Graves "was attacked; by -thugs
intent upon robbery, as his gold, watch
and chain, overcoat and J3o. were miss
ing. His purse, relieved. of its contents,
was found in his pocket and a valuable
diamond ring was left untouched" on
his finger. His clothes were bespat
tered with mud and filth and- his hair
bedraggled. In every way his appear
ance was strongly indicative of brutal
treatment, but the police, have been un
able to get the merest clew upon which
to work. •:,
Begs for Ferry Ticket
Graves arrived at tlie ferry depot at
1 o'clock yesterday morning* in" a dazed
condition and first attracted attention
by begging for i a ferry boat ticket,
stating that he had lost his pocketbook
and would pay later for the ticket.
ThtuMbe ticket seller refused to do.
Policeman , Casey, on . watch at th«
depot, observed the unusual appearance
of the man \u25a0 «nd accosted, him. but
Graves could" give no clear accountof
himself, and Casey assisted him to the
harbor hospital. His wounds were
dressed and early yesterday morning: he
was taken to his home in Oakland, lie
fell into a deep. stupor at the hospital
while the surgeons were dressing his
wounds, ; but rallied later when an un
successful attempt was made to; solve
the mystery. v
Professer Graves ha» aeeupied a chair
in the .Oakland hlsli school .for about
10 years. 'He was formerly professor
of Latin and recently \u25a0 was, mailo head
of the : department of languages. '' He
is widely known' en this" coast .as "a
linguist.. " :. . .
Says Son Vlctl m of .. Th _ie ves
\u25a0V.William I£, H. Graves/father of the
injured " man, :. when soen at- h"iß '.Oak
land .home last night, could' throw no
light upon the mystery,' but coincided
with the general belief, that his son
was the victim ef thieves. '
The elder Graves, saidr "My sun's
memory failed himwhile he was stand
ing in front of the, Princess theater.
After}' that ' tie' does not ; remember.'any
thing until he was taken toithe emer
gency' hospital. I believe that he was
struck from behind while li<*.was stand
ing on the sidewalk and then dragged
into"; gome house and; robbed. His foyer-*
coat and watch, were missing 'and. all
the money he hari, r amounting to about
$30, was gone. His head wasicui.nnd
bruised, in piany, pla<.es . and' he bled
copiously during UienlKht."

[Special Dispafch to The Call]
SEATTLE. Feb. 14.— Captain William ,
Mogg and hls'crew of four men la the
whaling schooner Olga, long- believed to'
have been lost In a gale at seaj-15
months ago, are allveand spending the
Arctic winter at Point Barrow. ? The
news- comes In a letter., from Captain
Mogg written November/ 1, 1908, ; and
dispatched by Eskimo' messenger to
Teller 1 City, 800 miles -over; an. almost |
Impassable ' trail, thence by dog. team
routes . through Nome and St. ; Michael
to : Valdez and by steamer, to PugeL
sound. I
Caught in Icebergs
The'Mogg expedition left Port Town
send In* June, 1907, equipped as a;whal-.
ing venture in. waters of the Arctic al
most unknown and equally unexplored.
It had the backing of the g-eograpMcal
society of London, and planned to go to
the Banksland district.; a region that
has not been visited by white people'
since the visit of Explorer Captain Me -
Clure in 1832. The actual destination
of the expedition was Point Cape,
Prince Albert, nearly 2,000 miles north
east from Point Barrow. \u25a0
/ After" unsuccessfully combating the
ice •:' on the ; Banksland shores during
the brief summer season of 1907 and
1908,- the voyage ended In bringing; the I
schooner fast in the icebergs 3SO miles
frdm Point Barrow. A refuge was
sought for the' present winter and" to
outfit for renewed attempts at progress,
northward the next summer.'
Vessel Abandoned in Ice J
\u25a0-'. A description of the Jong stay .0n.4 the
bleak shores oC • tb<r nninhkbltetl 'Arctic
island- furnishes a thrilling account>of
Arctic adventure. ; In a career of 25
years whaling and; sailing the ! Arctic,
Captain Mogg-wrltes 'that- he has never
seen, such quantities of ice as assem
bled . many ' miles . from shore -lines as
prevailed during the. last open . season.
Every mile- of progress that his little
command was: able to make was at
tended by danger of being crushed be
tween gigantic bergs or- massive. Ice
fields. The' season whereby the vessel
could hope to navigate commenced July
20.' .September 7, off Flaxman island,
nearly 400 miles 'from Point Barrow,
the vessel became hopelessly wedged
between the rice/and was abandoned.

Beautiful Actress Says She
Yearns for Home Life
and Children
Husband Approves of Bowes,
' and She Would "Love to TeIT
of Coming Marriage
Weary of Slage and Its Trials
and Anxious for Chance
to Darn Socks
MARGARET ELLINGTON- wishes
to exchange the thunderous ap
plause of thousands of jeweled
hands, rising from the darkened pit of
a theater, for the faint little dap q£
two tiny palms.
The fame, the glory, the praise that
would peur to her over the footlights
if she chose to stay on the stage under
the management: 4>f her husband, Daniel
Frohtnan, head of the theatrical trust,
has been discounted by the young?
woman. She has quit the stage and
she has decided to secure a divorce
• from Frohman. Now she is a rest cure
patient at the Clara Barton hospital at
Post and Gough streets. Seen at the
hospital yesterday afternoon, she af
firmed the statement made regarding
her future "plans by Edward J. Bowes,
who is living at the Hotel Normandi©
at Sutter and Gough streets.
Craves Home Life
"I am to get a divorce from Mr.
Frbhman," she said, "and I would love
to tell you that when I am free I 3hall
marry Mr. Bowes, but I can't say that
now, you know. But I 'did not Jeav«
Mr. Frohman to marry Mr. Bowes or
you or any one — I left him because I
could not be happy on the stage. The
life of an actress is abnormal. I cravw
domesticity,- home life, children. I want
to, darn socks." .
Mrs. Frohman, as she might now be
known since she has dropped the stage
iand; probably molted the brilliant
feather of her stage name of IlHttif
ton, would not say just when she would
apply for a decree of divorce, or where.
It will not be In New York or in Cali
fornia. The retired actress agreed that
the laws of California w«re not pro
pitious ' toward those who set their
lance 'at a new golden -ciTclet before
the smith had filed away the first ring.
But there will be no contest.
Husband Approves of Bowes
v "jir, * Frohman approves- of Mr.
Bowes," said the handsome woman
who would "love to tell" that she will
contract an . alliance with tc« San
Francisco real estate promoter as soon
as »he Is.fre^
. The isosceles triangle, with Frohman
as the short aWe, that is presented fn
the " IHtngtbn case, is a concise drama
which may . be. twisted someday and
offered to Frohman for presentation.
' Mrs. FTOhman has been at the sani
tarium for a week. She is attended by
her private physician, a woman. Dr\
L. M. Welzmiller of New York. AN
though the severe practice In rest
cure cases Is. that the patient sljall not
receive visitors nor discuss thrilling
incidents, Mrs. Frobman was permitted
•yesterday to receive an intervfew«r.
