Fresno Business-Man Yields to Temp,
tationand Young Woman's Lov.
ing Efforts Come to
-:■■ Naught
' Worn out by her efforts to secure
parole for her brother and broken
lfearted at his • disgrace, the sister of
B F Townsend, self confessed forger,
yesterday collapsed in department one
o>the superior court as the deputies
were about to take her brother back
to his cell at the county Jail.
Following the collapse came hysteria
and for more than an hour the woman
screamed and cried out her misery in
a manner terrible to those who were
Within ear shot, while her brother at
tempted To. comfort her and officers
rushed about to lend assistance.
It was the second of such scenes with
in the past six months and the. officers
of the ccurt were affected by the wo
man's grief as deeply as though it were
their own. \ . ■
geveral months ago a forger was tak
en before the court. It was arranged
that a probation sentence should be
asked for and it was thought that the
mercy of the court would be extended
him. But it was not, and he received
fiva years sentence in San Quentin peni
tentiary. At that time his wife was
present in court and the scene was
heartrending. „
Recently From Fresno
" Yesterday was a repetition of that
Scene and the details were every bit
as terrible. .
Townsend' was arrested during the
early part of April. He had but re
cently arrived' here from Fresno, where
he had been engaged in business for
himself. He had no bad record and he
had been a hard worker, but shortly
after his arrival, according to his own
confession, he took a sudden wild turn
and within a period of a few weeks
lie had forged seventeen checks, most
of them for small amounts.
On April 6, according to the allega
tions of the complaint against him, he
forged the name of E. T. Earl to a
check for $16 and then passed the check
on a Mexican. -He. was- arrested, and
held to the superior court for trial.
Since that time his friends have been
working day and night In his behalf
and foremost among the workers has
been his sister. Through her efforts,
affidavits from leading men of Fresno,
including superior Judges, were/secured
to the effect that a probation sentence
for Townsend would not be amiss. v
Had Three Attorneys ■
The accused man was represented by
three attorneys when he appeared for
trial. He promptly pleaded guilty as
charged and threw hlmßelf on ' the
mercy of the court. .
During the Interim between the
pleading and the day • Utx sentence
1 Townsend's friends again came to the
front and pleaded for him." . His sister
felt' certain that success would crown
her efforts and that her brother would
be released. ' ;
Yesterday the young man, tall, slen
der and neatly . dressed, marched into
rourt, Hli - «l»ter was the only ; spec
tator there and she sat nervously
watchingthe proceedings and trying_.to j
control her fear.
■ As Townsend was ordered forward
for sentence his sister grasped the
arms of her chair and waited for the
words of release.
But they never came.
"There are too many checks here to
be. passed over lightly'," said Judge
Smith. "If there was only, one check
here I might feel that probation would
be the right thing because of the clr- ,
cumstances of the case, but as It is
probation is out of the question.
Sentenced to San Quentin
"It is the order of this court, Mr.
Townsend, that you be* confined in
states penitentiary at San Quentin for
a term of three years.". - .
Townsend turned. pale and steadied
himself by holding' to 1 the edge of the
clerk's desk, but his sister's grief was
pitiable to see. ■'-[-_; i ■■' .'.,' ■'.-,'• !vi
At the first sentence uttered by, the
court she saw that probation could not
be considered and she began to weep.
At the sentence of the" court, however,
she threw her arms about her brother's
neck and fairly shrieked In her agony.
"Oh,- Frank, Frank, they will take
you away," she wailed, "up to the
penitentiary. Oh, Frank, my brother,
how. could they do it, how could they
ruin you."
The young man did his best to pacify
his sister. The deputies hastened to
help out and all thought of the prison
er was lost. • . /
The woman was taken to an adjoin
ing room and there she sobbed out her
hysteria, all the time clutching Jealous
ly at her brother for fear the officers
would take him from her. Finally she
quieted and went to jail with him.
The unfortunate young man will
leave for the penitentiary today.
Judge Conrey Rules That Long.
shoremen Must Stop Dis
orderly Picketing
In. a decision handed down yester
day morning by. Judge N. P. Conrey
in department ttiree of the superior
court, the petition for injunction re
cently filed by the Crescent Wharf and
Land company against the striking
longshoremen of San Pedro was sus
tained and the strikers will hereafter
be compelled to keep entirely . away
from the docks or passageways lead
ing to the docks.
The defense did not deny that pickets
had been posted, but contended that
picketing was lawful when done In an
orderly manner. •
Judge Conrey ruled the picketing to
have been done in a disorderly man
ner because of the fact that literature
bearing the word "scab" was being
given away on the wharves.

Enraged because of the prices charged

ranchmen from Azusa precipitated a
riot at the barber shop of Delupe &
Valiant at 834 East Fifth street last
night, which was only quelled after
a riot call had been turned In ana
twenty officers hurried to the scene of
battle. ■
•The prices charged, according to
statements of the men, were $6.25 for
a haircut and "shave for the one and
$2.50 for a shave for the other. I
Th\ men arrived In Los I Angeles
early yesterday evening from the coun
try and prepared to spend the evening
in the city.. They marched to the Dej
lupe & Valiant barber parlors and pro*
ceeded to have their faces thoroughly
Officer Warned Passers-by
The'Delupe parlors are within a hun
dred yards of the Arcade depot and the
proprietors i have learned, according to
the stories told by the police, to Judge
men by their appearances.
Some weeks ago the barbers came to
grief while at a stand directly In front
of the Arcade depot and an officer was
stationed before their place and he
warned prospective shavlsts not to
patronize the shop.
Later the officials of . the Southern
Pacific compelled the barbers to move
from their property, it Is alleged, and
elnce that time they have. been con
ducting the business of their three
chair establishment about a block far
ther down the street. ,
The tourist who emerged from the
stuffy trains for a. moment to dash to
the, nearest , barber . shop for a shave
or haircut between trains found them
selves hard hit and to avoid , trouble
they paid and left, muttering heart
felt curses for the same trick has been
played In many eastern cities.
But the farming men were the chief
objects of consideration, . for they gen
erally had money. ,
The Barbers Smile
When one would enter the : shop
where extortion wag practiced and pro
ceeded i to point his alfalfa bedecked
boots skyward, * the barbers would
smile. They would gently comb the last
year* potato bugs from the' rube's
heard, trim ■ his hair, scrape his face,
(have a layer of sunburn from off his
neck and then watch his throes of heart
fajlure as he saw his bill of "steen"
dollars.' . ,■, ■ .. •'■„-.
This happened often, according to the
statements of . the police, who received
many complaints. The men with beard*
■ and mustaches which rifeeded dyeing
were the pet victims. ; „
In the first place they didn't want it
known that they had their hair dyed
and so when they received a bill worthy
of a millionaire they simply muttered,
"I hast been didst," and forthwith dug
up. I
Last night the two early arrlvajs
looked like the original cherry pickers'
brigade and preparations were begun.
One hustled into chair number one,
' while the other draped his long and
sinewy frame over the second chair.
First they received a hot towel on
the face and then the scraping process
began. One got his locks trimmed, as
well as the face scraping.
Then the little Italian proprietors
i rubbed their hands over their victims'
faces and "proceeded to rub sweet smell
ing stuff on the sunburned hide.
Then the Awakening
It felt good and the victims didn't
They were turned out of the chairs
. at the same time, one having .received
a shave and. the other a haircut and
One reached his hand down in his
trousers pockets and . produced -a $10
gold piece. The barber apparently
made a hurried calculation and handed
back J3.75. Before the victim could
utter a yell of astonishment he noticed
his frrend Jumping In the air because
he had received only $2.50 change from
I a five dollar gold piece,
i Remonstrances failed, argument did
■ no good. The two excited barbers told
: they., that they had only charged regu
. lar prices and that If they had visited
• a place too rich for their blood it was
1 their own fault.
! The two countrymen walked to the
street. They wandered toward the
> corner and the barbers chuckled.
At the corner were a number of men
. lounging about, for that neighborhood
is very prosperous at night and some
i belligerent spirits are always present.
"Nice night," said one of the country
: men. .
; "Pine night for suckers," came the
' reply from the other victim.
"Wat's the matter?" came the query
from an Interested lounger.
"Oh, bucked a new game and got
stuck," said one rancher. "We went
into the spaghetti hole down the street
! and ■ got trimmed for $8.75 for. two
1 shaves and a haircut."
The Crowd Gets Busy
The loungers immediately became In
"De bloke charged me ten cents for
a towel onct," said a lounger, "and
when I objected he only, laughed. Next
time I got a dirty towel and he reduced
the price to a nickel."
. "Let's clean the dagoes out," sug
gested a member of the crowd, and the
gang started toward the barber shop.
Things happened fast about that time
when the barbers saw the two huge
forms of their recent victims in the
doorway and the angered faces of a
hundred men behind them.
explanations didn't go then.
The mob yelled derision at the bar
bers and hissed and yelled and broke
down the barber sign before the place.
Men and women came running from
every direction and the yelling could
be heard for blocks.
It attracted the attention of Patrol
man Glenn, a negro officer, who daßhea
to the barber shop an.d attempted to
protect the owners from harm. He
was squeezed into the doorway and the
mob. attempted to enter.
Thousand Rioters Charge
By that time there were more than
a thousand men In the street and all
were yelling and hooting.
Fearing that they would be lynched
because of . the threats, the barbers
turned in a riot call over the telephone.
The calls for a lynching grew mom
persistent , and / the barbers shivered,
and Officer Olenn beat back the crowd
for the last > time. They had charged

Youth Has Grievance
Honesty failed to meet its usual re
ward at the Haywrd yesterday, when a
bellboy who restored two diamonds to
W. C. Wilson of Oakland was ordered
out of the room for his pains.
Wilson sent for the bellboy and re
quested him to unpack his trunk and
take his clothes to be pressed.
"Mind you see that you don't get any
creases In them when you come back,
either," said Mr. Wilson, according to
the boy's story.
"Have you gone through them? Are
you sure there is nothing you want in
the pockets?" asked the boy, and re
ceiving an answer to "take them along"
he went
While waiting- for the messenger to
come, the clothes reposed on a seat in
the door and -were going after the
barbers when the squad of riot breakers
