MINOR COURT HAS
MIXED UP ACTION
Husband Is Charged With
Robbery, White Slavery
and Jumping Bail
Wife Alleged Bigamist and
—Oh, Read the Story;
Life's Too Short
LOS ANGELES, Feb. A — When John
Jonescu of Houston, Tex., was ar
raigned t.-n a grand larceny charge in
a justice court here today tho magis
trate. Justice J. YV. Siimmerfield, found
an almost inextricably tangled case
that involved two men and ono woman
in charges of bigrarny, fleeing from
justice, robbery and assault and bat
tr>ry—all the result of ■ chase across
the country from Houston,
Oklahoma city. Los Angeles and San
Francisco and back to this city.
The two other principals in the case
were Mrs. Jonescu, charged with big
amy by Jean Georgescu ; who in turn
was accused by the woman of assault
and battery for having hit her in the
eye with a catsup bottle last week in
On top of it all Justice Summerfield
learned that a deputy United States
marshal from Texas was on the way
here to get Jonescu, who. besides the
iohhery charge, is accused of having
.lumped his bail in Houston while
awaiting trial on a white slavery
charge, to go in pursuit of his wife and
Georgescu. The latter, according to
the woman, decoyed her away from
home and married her without her
knowledge. She averred she did not
know at the time that a marriage
ceremony was being performed.
In Houston Jonescu is charged with
having enslaved Aurice Muntaneau,
niece of M. Ilion. said to be a promi
n-ent citizen of Montreal, Canada. The
girl accompanied him and his wife to
Houston, where the Jonescus conducted
a restaurant. While awaiting , trial on
the elaving charge Jonescu was in
duced by Goergescu to go to Fort
Worth to look over a business propo
sition. Then Georgescu returned to
Houston and took Mrs. Jonescu away.
Jonescu followed. A fight occurred
when the two men met in San Fran
cisco. Mrs. Jonescu returned to her
husband after being hit in the eye
with the catsup bottle. Georgescu
then accused Jonescu of stealing $700
from him and filed the bigamy charge
against the woman. Mrs. Jonescu
countered with the assault charge.
Jonescu was held under $3,000 bail
while government immigration officials
investigate his case.

great value as a peace propaganda

American railway committee, of which
he is a member, when reports , of the

read, indicating that progress is being
made toward this project.
Chairman Henry Gassaway Davis,
former senator from West Virginia,
presided at the meeting. General
George W. Davis and Charles M. Pep
per also were present.
In Central America only IS miles
of line remain to be constructed to
make practicable a railway journey
from New York to Guatemala city.
Construction is well under way to San
Miguel, Salvador. From this , point to
the Panama canal, 600 miles away, a
number of links have been constructed
and plans for others are well ad
In SbUtb America only 17." miles are
still to be constructed between Buenos
Aires and Lake TtticAca, and the line
has been completed from the latter
