LUMMIS SILENT REGARDING WIFE Author Refuses to Reply to His Spouse's Statement of Marital Infelicities WILL NOT ATTACK A WOMAN Friends Relate Story of the Two Matrimonial Exploits of Gifted Man Apparently Mrs. C. F. Lummis, wife of the former city librarian, must carry the fight for freedom from mar ital bonds which she is said to be contemplating into the home of her distinguished husband in the Arroyo Seco. As he said Wednesday, he scorns to fight a woman. Therefore he will not meet her half way. Mr. Lummis has become reticent. From simile and metaphor, used almost flip pantly, he has withdrawn to silence and meditation. "I have no statement of any kind to make," said Mr. Lummis last night in answer to an inquiry regarding the suit for divorce likely to be instituted by his wife at San Francisco. Further than that he would say nothing except that should his attorney deem a state ment advisable he might make one later, although his personal inclination was to say nothing at all. "I do not favor attacking a woman under any circumstances," he added, "and in a case like this it is better, perhaps, for the man to keep silent, however unjustly he may be accused." Dr. Lummis was seen by a Herald reporter at the unique western home he built for himself on early American lines in East Avenue Forty-three. He is engaged in literary work, pre paring new manuscript and attending to his forthcomings books which will appear next year. ;•*.'•',"■ WIFE NOT SOLE INSPIRATION Friends of the historian and former public librarian deny that his present wife was his sole inspiration for the work which has made him an author ity on the history of early America and for his literary reputation. "The first Mrs. Lummis and Dr. Lummis were always great chums, and I think they still have the highest re gard for one another," said a man who has known the family for many years. "Before his second marriage Lummis was already famous and ranked high in literary reputation. His trip across the country, of which The Herald speaks, was a camera trip, and re sulted in a remarkable collection of photographic negatives. "My N understanding is that the wife who Is said to be suing for a divorce was Introduced to Mr. Lummis by his first wife, who Bent her to take care of him while he was suffering from a stroke of paralysis. I think that tlys three have always been the best of friends, and I do . not believe that there has been any such scandal as the papers' have hinted. "When Lummis came back from New Mexico he constructed his home with his own hands, aided only by the labor »f Indians he brought back with him. The window glass is made from some of ' the most remarkable neg atives ever made in America, and in other ways the house has the stamp of Its builder's strong individuality." WINERIES ARE ALLOWED TO AGAIN SELL BRANDY Vineyardists Get Concession from Supervisors—Local Option Not Changed , Substituting "viniculated products" for the word "wines" in section 31 of the county's general license ordinance yesterday, the board of supervisors broadened the scope of the ordinance so as to allow wineries to dispose of bran dy the same as wine. No change was made in the • local option law, and at the coming election each precinct will regulate the sale of wines at wineries within Its distrct. J-.^_\ .K>£-M^ | Should the precinct vote dry all wines made at a winery within Its boundary must be shipped away from the winery before they can be retailed. Since the passing of the new 'ordi nance ■ several weeks ago winery men discovered that it only referred to wines, and that brandy, which is made at air wineries, could not be disposed of according to the correct interpreta tion of the article. Aotion was immediately taken by the winery men, who, represented by Guy Barham, • asked to have the clause amended so as to Include brandy. They also requested that winery men using more than 100 tons of grapes in the course of one year be excluded from the local option provision and be classed as manufacturers. ..,. . ' ■ Opposition .was raised to this latter proposition by a delegation headed 7 by Dr. E. R. Chapman, superintendent of the Anti-Saloon league in California and Oregon. •' A motion placed before the board by Supervisor Pridham, to ask the district attorney .to - draw >up an ■ amendment that would make the ordinance not ap ply to wine only, but to all vlnicultural products, was carried without opposi tion. . ' ••'■-■,.<-: , Acting on the advice of Deputy Dis trict Attorney Shaw, the minimum sale was fixed at two gallons.

Merchants Bank and Trust Co. 207-9-11 SOUTH BROADWAY : f HOMEOPATHS ASK FOR 'SQUARE DEAL' Charge Legislators and Judges Show Favoritism to the i Allopaths RESOLUTIONS ARE PASSED Southern California Medicos Dis- cuss Technical Papers and Adjourn Resolutions adopted yesterday by the Southern California Homeopathic Mcd- leal society, at Its concluding business session, charge both legislators and the superior court judges of the county with unfair treatment of homeopaths. It is asserted that the allopaths have been favored. The resolutions call for the same treatment for all accredited schools. It Is asserted that of the 36 members of the lunacy commission only one is a homeopath. 'f *,'*-. Dr. F. S. Bernard, president-elect, presented the resolution defining the position of the society as regards leg islation affecting public health and sanitation, and demanding fair treat ment of the legislators. The resolu tion follows: :, ;' Whereas, the dominant or allo pathic school of medicine, through Its minority rule, failed ln the last congress to secure legislation fa vorable to its own advancement, largely because It was obnoxious to all other schools of practice, and, Whereas, the legislative act known as the "Owen bill,". intro duced at the last session of con gress, represented and was in dorsed only by the allopathic school of practice," and,. Whereas, all other recognized sys tems of practice have long since ob served by experience, that when ever said dominant school -is per mitted by law, or self-made health board regulations, to exercise auth ority, its policy has been, as far as possible, to ignore and exterminate the smaller schools and by com pulsory means force its particular practice and treatment upon the profession and public. Therefore, be it . DEMAND EQUAI, RECOGNITION Resolved, that the Southern Cali fornia . Homeopathic Medical so ciety in its twentieth annual ses sion, October 12 and 13, 1910, and representing over 200 registered physicians, is not opposed to just and equitable laws'to regulate food and drug products, necessary sani tation, but it is unalterably op posed to federal or .state compul sory laws, except such legislation be so prepared, and passed as to preserve the absolute liberty • and Independence of the physician and citizen, also the legally established college and hospital, to teach, use or employ the system of treatment most consistent with their choice and belief, the same as kindred in dividual rights and privileges of all citizens are now guaranteed, with respect to politic sand religion; and also, to recognize the eligibility of equally efficient physicians and sur geons, though not identified with the allopathic school, to federal and state appointments where the serv ices of the profession are required. " Resolved, that the secretary be Instructed to send a copy of these resolutions to the president and each of the senators and represent atives in congress and also to mem bers of the California state legis- lature. Another resolution, Introduced late ln the afternoon, asked that the superior judges of Los Angeles county give the homeopaths a greater representation>»n the lunacy commission of this county. It was stated that at present only one member of the homeopathic school "of practice Is a member of the board, out of 36 physicians on it. The society unanimously passed the resolution, which will be sent to the superior judges. '«,■■■•.'. • ■ ■.' ■, . ■ Next year's session of the society will be held In a different manner than for merly, according to action taken just before I adjournment. In 1911 the first day's session will be held in Los An geles, but on the second day the mem bers will 'go to the state hospital for the insane at Patton and there conclude their deliberations, at • the same time making a thorough investigation of the conditions existing there. It was the consensus of opinion among the mem bers that at least one session should be held at the hospital and the plan of holding a session in both Los Angeles "and Patton was finally hit upon as the solution of the problem. ■ * ■ Following the adjournment last even ing the delegates had an informal ban quet at the Westminster and attended the Burbank theater in a body. • Besides the resolutions referred to many papers on technical subjects were read.
