WOMAN SUCCEEDS
AS OWN LAWYER
Mrs. Nora D. Danford Success
fully Argues Demurrer in the
Suit of Mrs. Smith
JUDGE SUSTAINS HER PLEA
Husband Also Presents His Case
Before the Court of
Appeals
Mrs. Nora D. Danford, wife of Wil
liam J. Danford, disbarred attorney,
yesterday acted as her own lawyer so
well In arguing her demurrer to a com
plaint that It was sustained by Judge
Conrey of the superior court.
She also wanted to argue the de
murrer which she filed In the same
action for her husband, but on the
ground that only attorneys can argue
cases other than their own she was
refused permission.
The demurrers were to the complaint
of Mrs. Catherine E. Smith, now on
live years' probation because of her
connection with the Wilson "fake
quadruplet! case,." and who sued Dan
ford for $3130 which she said she gave
him while he acted as her attorney in
a suit against her In tho federal court.
In that action she made Mrs. Danford
a Joint defendant. •■
While Mrs. Danford was appearing
In the superior court her husband was
permitted absence from the- county
jail for a sufficient period to argue be
fore the court of appeal his motion for
an appeal from a sentence of three
years in San Quentln for the alleged
knowing delivery of "a false and
forged" telegram. His arguments were
so effective that the district attorney's
office asked for time in which to file
additional briefs and was given ten
days. <
Danford was convicted of forging a
telegram from Tellurlde, Colo., to
prove to C, J. O'Keefe that a bond
upon which Geoffrey Ryan, the attor
ney's client In divorce proceedings,
wanted to borrow 11000 was good.
TRUTH-SEEKING PLAY
WRITERS HIS SUBJECT
Dr. Richard Burton Delivers Lec
ture on Dramatists at Cum-,
nock Hail
Florence Bosard Lawrence
The working man's creed in regard
to the theater, as outlined by Dr.
Richard Burton in his initiatory lecture
at Cumnock hall yesterday morning, Is
as follows: • .
"I believe that .every play worth talk
ing about should stand three tests:
"It should give pleasure proper to a
work of art.
"It should make us think—not just
at the time we hear it, but there should
even be a few thoughts left over for
breakfast the next morning; and
"It should do us good. By this I
mean that it should have a fruitful re
sult In broadening our attitude toward
our neighbors and make us better fitted
for that dally, homely and divine busi
ness of living."
One of the mont noteworthy things in
the status of present day literature is
the interest in the drama. Dr. Burton
told till hearers so in his lectures, and
It was a fact evidenced by the presence
of a large audience made up of men
and women whose Interest in thought
ful and cultured matters Is well known.
His sUb-topic for the day was "Truth
Seekers," among whom he placed
Plnero, Henry Arthur Jones and John
Galsworthy. "Plnero Is ono of the
craftsmen of his generation. You
Should respect him and should know
when a play of his comes to town."
Discussing Jones, the speaker said:
"He is a satirist of the foibles of
middle class society. His earlier plays
were melodramas, and now out of 'Tho
Middleman' and 'The Silver King' he
makes so much money that he can
afford to write better plays, which
make him less money." In speaking of
the great play "Hypocrites," Dr. Bur
ton quoted the old saying "That society
always hopes for the worst."
Of John Galsworthy's works, "Jus
tice" was mentioned particularly as a
play with a great lesson, while the
"Silver -Box" and "Strife" were two
others to which particular attention
was called. It will be remembered that
the first named of this trio was read
here at the Friday Morning club in the
dramatic committee by Mrs. Richard
Hovey late in the spring.
Dr. Burton will continue these lec
tures, his next one Wednesday morn
ing dealing with "Wits and Dreamers,"
In which class he puts Wilde, Barrio
and Yeats. »•

CHARGE POLICE CHIEF
KEPT MONEY OF CITY
Former Patrolman and Peddler
Declare John Parrent Owes
Ocean Park $5
OCEAN PARK, Aug. I.—Harry As
sador, a Greek peddler of Los Angeles,
and H. O. Briggs, a former policeman
of this city, have charged Chief of Po
lice John H. Parrent with failing to
turn over to the city treasurer $5 of
the city's money collected from Assa
dor on the Fourth of July. In plac
ing the charge before the trustees, As
sador and Brlggs said that the money
had not been accounted for to the city
on "July 24, twenty days after its col
lection. The board voted to refer the
matter to the district attorney for in
vestigation.
The charges were presented to the
board by Hiram Scheller, a real estate
agent. In a letter read to the trustees
Scheller advised them of the supposed
conditions in regard to the collection
of the money by the chief of police,
but the board refused to consider the
subject until the actual charges were
presented in writing. At this Scheller,
Brlggs and Assador stepped Into an
adjoining room and drew up a formal
charge.
Accarding to the letter filed with the
board. Chief Parrent collected the
money from Assador for the privilege
of selling fireworks in this city July 4.
The license for this privilege was fixed
by the trustees a short time before at
$10. Assador was given a receipt for
the amount paid.
Soon after the Fourth Brlggs was
discharged from the police force by
Chief Parrent, who accused him of
sleeping on duty. Friends of Chief
Parrent say Briggs then sought Assa
dor and got the receipt In question for
the purpose of charging the head of
the police department with graft.
Chef of Police Parrent said tonight:
"I collected the money from Assador,
as well as from two other venders on
July 4 and it has been In my office
ever since. There was no intention
of stealing the money on my part and
the charges of Assador and Briggs are
foolish. There Is nothing to them, as I
can prove at the proper time."

SKELLY HOME TRAGEDY
Jury Visits Residence at West
minster and Case Will Be
Submitted Today
SANTA ANA, Aug. 1.— Following a
visit of the Jury In the Skelly murder
case to AVestmlnster to Inspect the
Skelly home, arguments in the trial
were begun this afternoon. Attorney
E. J. Fleming opened the case for the
prosecution. The closing address will
be made by District Attorney S. M.
Davis tomorrow. Clyde Bishop will
speak for the defense. It is expected
that Judge West will give his instruc
tions so that the case can go to the
Jury tomorrow afternoon.
Attorney Fleming said that Skelly's
own statement proved him guilty of
murder and that his previous moral
life, as claimed by tho defense, should
not be taken into account. He pointed
out examples of presumably respect
able men who had committed murder.
He declared that Skelly was not on
good terms with his wife, as he did
not speak to her the morning of the
tragedy. ... ,
Fleming argued that Skelly « lapses
of memory, such as that he did not
know if It was the same morning when
he went up to Gans' room and
awakened him as the morning of the
burning, should not be considered Im
portant. ' :"V;;_.
THREE DOLLARS' FINE
BECAUSE LIGHT OUT
"Unknowingly guilty, your honor,
replied H. O. Knickerbocker to Police
Judge Rose yesterday morning, after
the latter had read him a complaint
charging him with violating the ordi
nance requiring him to place a light on
his vehicle after sundown.
"How's that?" queried the magis
trate, not catching the drift of the de
fendant's answer.
"I said that I didn't know my light
was out. but I guess I am guilty, all
right," returned Knickerbocker.
"Mr. Knickerbocker, the patrolman
isn't supposed to know whether you
knew whether your light was lighted or
not," retorted Judge Rose. "Three dol
lars or three days," he added. The fine
was paid. *^ ■_

THE VERDICT: INNOCENT
Should you ask a butcher If vegeta
rianism was to be recommended for
the entire human race, you could hard
ly expect him to say "Yes." Should
you ask a real estate agent, selling
lots In a hollow, if high altitude was
preferable to low, you might hazard a
guess that he wouldn't cry "Surely."
Self-interest would dictate the replies
of both. Likewise, self-interest and
nothing else dictated the reply of the
Republican machine when, through tha
commission appointed to investigatet
whether the high tariff had aught to
do with the high cost of living, it an
nounced to a waiting nation' that the
tariff was innocent. To be sure, there
came a minority report which dis
agreed with that of the majority in
certain respects, but there were more
Republicans on the commission than
Democrats, so the result was never in
doubt, The jury was packed, as it
were. As soon expect a boxing In
structor to denounce boxing as brutal
and degrading as to expect an organ
ization , Republican to find fault with
the tariff. AYe know It is a fearfully
old subject, but from a non-partisan
standpoint it is simply foolish to claim
that there is no relation between the
tariff and high prices. Nobody doubts
for a moment that there are plenty of
other causes for the costliness of
things, but this perpetual exoneration
of the protective schedules by the Re
publican authorities becomes weari
some. The tariff is like the "teacher's
pet" In schoolfrequently the perpe
trator of all sorts of devilment, yet
never accused or punished. An occa
sional admission by some stand-pat
Republican that perhaps after all tho
tariff might have a little to do with
the expense attending the purchase of
a suit of clothes or a piece of steak,
would be a welcome bit of variety, but
this, of course, is too much to ask. In
our own mild opinion. If It be true, as
many learned ones declare, that we
are not raising food enough to feed
ourselves in this country, there can be
no excuse for a tariff schedule which
practically prevents us from supply
ing the deficiency from outside. If
there are five persons in a house and
food enough for only three, the sim
plest way to relieve the difficulty is to
bring in something more to eat.—Puck.
THE LEAST HE COULD DO
"Do you know," Raid the suburban house
wife to her husband, "that for months now
you have gone backward and forward to tha
city every day and have never seen anything
of the children?"
"I don't see how that ran be helped." re
plied the suburbanite. "When I leave in the
morning they are not up, and when I coma
back In the evening they are In bed."
"Yes," assented his wife "th.it it so: but
you mlgh* at least send them a picture post
card now «nd then!"— Suburban I.U. .
