fore last. It created a sensation by its
fearless treatment of a subject that is
vital in American social and political
life—that of the "color line." Older
and more experienced dramatists had
either handled it very gingerly or
shunned it altogether, but Sheldon,
then a student at Harvard, "tackled" It
boldly. His temerity was not curbed
by consideration of whether or not his
work would be acceptable to managers

worth as well as its artistic wT>rth, for

TO SCHOOL SITE
Delegation From Section West of
Stockton Street Protest
J. H. Condit and a delegation of
citizens residing in the territory west
of Stockton street presented a pro
test against the placing of the oriental
school in Washington street between
Stockton and Powell at a meeting of
the board of education yesterday after
Condit. spokesman for the delega
tion, who has been a teacher for 25
years, said that It has.been generally
understood for more than 50 years
that the western limit of Chinatown Is

lowing for the consideration of the
It will depreciate the value ot property by at
least 50 per -?ent; it will destroy Id whole or in
part the.bnsiness of the immediate neighborhood. '
which influence will be tell and extend to all j
parts of the vicinity.
Any oriental school located outside of oriental
territory near to any school of the Caucasian
race will greatly injure the discipline of each
school, ats a constant race war will be kept up
between the boys of mien schools, hence we pro
test against the location of any oriental school
outside of oriental territory and call your atten
tion to a school site right in Chinatown ia
the east side of Stockton street betweea Clay
end Sacramento, where neither the Caucasian
nor the oriental business interests will be dam
aged by placing the oriental echooi there. The
orientals should havo good school privilege pro
vided tor their children and be made responsible
for all the costs iind damages growing out of the
school site provided* for them, therefore In the
interests of all the people of our beloved city,
the mayor, the board of supervisors and the city
board of education fire earnestly urged to look
well into the facts from a Just standpoint and
1 are most respectfully requested to remove the
oriental school from Its present location into
Chinatown' proper in the best interest of the
Washington grammar school and the property
owners of the city and that vicinitj.
During the presentation of the pro
test it appeared that by reason of the
fact that the children of the white
school and of the oriental school let
out at the same time they frequently
engago in stone warfare, damaging
property and injuring those who par
take in such fights, and that women
who have to pass along the streets are
in danger of being injured.
Mrs. E. Myers of 1042 Powell street
declared that she had on many occa
sions called on the police to check the
dangerous stone throwing, but had not
been afforded any protection.
Director Jones declared that boys will
fight, but that as the board has charge
of pupils in going vo and coming from
school, the board never before having
been advised of existing conditions,
should look into the complaint and dis
cipline the delinquents or expel them.
"In that case," said one of the pro-
I testants, "you would have to suspend
the whole school."
The president was requested to call
on Mayor Rolph, who has held up the
signing of the papers to purchase the
Washington street property and lay be
fore him the protest of the residents
who do not want Chinatown extended.
President d'Ancona presented each
director a copy of proposed rules for
the competitive examination of candi
dates who want to be teachers. In
which the scope is somewhat different
from that of last year. One paragraph
is that after women teachers have
served a probationary period of two
years and after recommendation by

Defendant in Alienation Stjr
Says He Had Nothing to
Do With Trouble
OAKLAND, Oct. 2.—"1 never kn«-W»
that my brother loved any woman but
his wife until I heard him say so on
the witness stand," said Charles H.
Eccleston in defending himself against
a charge of alienating the affections
of his brother, Louie R. Eccleston, made
by Mrs. Maude J. Eccleston.
Mrs. Eccleston said that sh« and
her husband lived an ideal life ami
that Louie Ecoleston "was the grand
est lufsband that ever iras , ' until M»
brother poisoned his mind against he*
Louie Eccieston testified that of hi*
own volition ho fell in love with an
other woman when hie wife's whim?
killed liis affection for her. Charles
IF. Eccleston said he had nothing to
do with their affairs.
Mrs. Eccleston Introduced several
letters to prove that her brother In
law Wcis well versed in the details of
their trouble. One letter, written by
her husband apprised the defendant of
their attempts to patch up their quar
rels and ran:
'■I guess you will think I am crazy
when you get this letter, but I want
you to think it al! done for the best.
Maude and I have come to an under
standing. Maude is my wife. I took
her for better or for worse.
"We have had better, and now, that
the worst presents itself, I am goins
to give her a chance.
"There is no question of a. separa
tion; it means that I am throwing
her out in this cruel world all alone.
"She is not like some girls
would get out and make a living. Fh«
says she wants me, and me alone.
"She is a brave little woman andjk
know she must love me. ■"*
"I want you and your wife, for my
sake, to treat Maude as you did before
all this came up, and if we can work
this out between ourselves we will
both be happy and fulfill the rows we
made at the altar."
Mrs. Eccleston obtained a decree of
divorce at Fresno on a cross com
plaint charging cruelty. She demands
$25,000 damages in the complaint filed
against Charles Hudson Eccleston.
