OAKLAND, Dec. 9. —When Robert
Cuthbert, fireman of engine company 2.
Fifty-sixth and Dover streets, appeared
in the police court today to answer to a
battery charge preferred by Frank H.
Pretti, captain of the company and
Cuthbert's superior officer, lie was
flanked by a number of character wit
nesses who testified to Cuthbert's high
standing: as a citizen in the community.
Cuthbert, who had admitted the as
sault on Pretti, offered no other defense
today, saying that he did not wish any
more notoriety for his 17 year old
niece, the cause of the trouble, as he
has charged, between Pretti and him
self. Cuthbert pleaded guilty and
asked for probation. Police Judge
George Hamuels referred the case to
th<- probation officers for a report.
PRETTI HEVRS MARKS
Sydney H. Wilson, Harry G. Williams,

for his wife and family and that he
was not inclined to be. quarrelsome.
Pretti appeared still showing the marks
that C'Uhbert had given him.
While Pretti denied that he was at
tentive to Cutbbert's niece, an dthat
there was ground for Cuthbert's assault
upon him, Cuthbert stood by his allega

case reopened by F. C. Turner, com

"I did not care to have the whole
story come out today in the police
court." Cuthbert said, "because I am
determined that my niece is to be pro

I was forced to stay on duty in the
firehouge. attempted to take my niece
automobile riding. She went with

I remonstrated with him. She had no

"When he found that I had told the
girl to keep away from him, he began
to make things unpleasant for me.
The girl and her sister used to come to
see me at the firehouse, as I worked
2 4 hours a day, and that was the only
place they could visit me. My younger

comedy. Miss Ethel Green is one of

She is primarily a comedienne, but is
also one of the best singers in vaude

"Annie Laurie" with modern ragtime
pieces and extracts a contrast which is
as pleasing as it is reminiscent of other
days in popular music.

of Miss Adrienne Augarde, one of
England's best known stage artists. In

DEFEAT FOR KAISER'S
Compromise, Which Will Include Ex
cluMlon of Standard Oil From Ger
niaay, l« Expected
BERLTN, Dec. 9.—TW German gov
ernment's petroleum bill again was
subjected to vigorous and destructive
criticism today in the imperial parlia
ment. It then was referred without
opposition to a committee which will
endeavor to evolve something accept
able to the majority of the house.
Not a single voice was raised today
in defense of the bill in its present
form. Most of the speakers apparently
were convinced that the banking group
behind the proposed company was quite
as dangerous as the Standard Oil com
pany, and would raise prices if the
measure became a law.
Still it is thought there is a chance,
despite the determined'opposition of
the clerical center, the Poles and
several of the minor factions, that the
measure embodying the government's
aim—namely, the ejection of the Stan
dard Oil company from Germany—ul
timately will be adopted and most
•probably in the form of a state mo
nopoly utilizing different methods of
organization from those now proposed.
Secretary of State Kuehn, in closing
the debate, intimated that the govern

of parliament in the matter, if only the

Fitch. Their attorney, Henry C. Mc
[ Pike, also was in attendance.
Woolner is to confer with the cen

i before drafting a new ordinance. The
I main objection to the present ordi
j nance is the arbitrary power given to
j the mayor and the chief of police to
j stop any performance.
Ebey pointed out that the change
I erbfinif the mayor and police chief this
i power had been made without notify-
ing , the, theatrical organization. Ke said
the ordinance as it stood was absurd,
in that it was possible for the censors
to stop a show when it would be im
possible to get redress, to the great
financial loss of the theater.
"We haVe no objection to the cen
sors objecting to certain features in a
performance," said Ebey, "but we do
object to having the entire perform
ance stopped without being given a
hearing by the city council. We are
opposed to the arbitrary power now
given to the mayor and the chief of
police in the present ordinance."

, What Food
shall I give Baby?
Every mother must sooner or later a«V
herselfthis question, and it is one widen
must involve a good, deal of anxious
consideration. It may be that on tin
advice of friends various foods are tried
to see if baby takes kindly to them.
Now, is it not reasonable to assume that
an infants' food that has been in general
use for upwards of fifty years, and that
has been used, in preference to others, in
most of the Royal Nurseries of Europe,
is likely to prove a suitable diet for the
average infant ? Such a food is Savory
& Moore's, and all mothers who decide in
its favour may be congratulated on the
wisdom of their choice.
Infants reared on Savory & Moore's
Food are characterised by strong, sturdy
limbs, firm flesh, plenty of bone and mus
cle, easy teething, freedom from infant
ailments, and that happy disposition
which is the surest eign of perfect health.
