Judge Hunt Administers Punishment
*to Merchant Who Repeatedly
Evades L<esal Service.
Refusal- to pay attention to a sum
mons of court to appear and do duty
as a Juror or to give a reason why
one should not serve is liki-ly to lead
to unpleasant complications, particu
larly if the summons comes from
Judge Hunt. W. Davis of the harness
firm of W. Davis & Son at 11 Front
. street had the temerity to disobey not
only, one but several of Judge Hunt's
'orders, with the result that a deputy
sheriff went to his store yesterday,
•took him Into custody and brought
him before the Judge.
"Your neglect, Mr. Davis," said
.• Judge Hunt to the offender, "will cost
• you Just }20."
"I do not know about that," said
the merchant, getting red in the face.
"I'll see ray attorney."
"Weil," said Judge Hunt, "it is suf
ficient that I should know about it,
and I want to tell you that unless the
fine is paid within twenty-four hours
.I'll send you to jail."
, The fine was paid.

The regular Republican and Demo
cratic organizations of San .Francisco
yesterday filed in (he office of the
Registrar of Voters lists of proposed
delegates to the respective party con
ventions. The names so filed will be
printed on the tally sheets. The Re
publican tickets were not filed until a
late hour last night. ' The Democratic
tickets were .filed early in the after
noon. Electors may vote for delegates
other than those whose names have
been filed. There are Indications of
a contest in the Republican ranks of
the Thirty-ninth Assembly • District, as
two tickets have been filed by repre
sentatives of the party In that dis
Delegates to the Republican State
Convention from Assembly districts of
the Fifth Congressional District will
also serve as delegates to the Con
gressional district convention, but they
will not nominate a' candidate for Con
gress. Under the call they will select
two delegates and two N alternates from
that district to the Republican National
Convention and will also select a new
Congressional district committee.
The Assembly districts of the Fourth
Congressional District will elect two
sets of delegates— one to the State con
vention and. the other to the Congres-,
slonal district convention.. The latter,
however, will not nominate a candidate
for Congress, but will simply choose
delegates to the Chicago convention
and name a district committee to con
duct the campaign. The primary elec
tion for choosing delegates to the sev
eral conventions will be held next Tues-
But when pretty Mrs. Bates got upon
that platform with her rattling sallies
at^the aforesaid logic, well, now, logic
did begin to look a bit weak, In the
knees. "Why," said the speaker, "it's
the men who are at the bottom of this
extravagance they're talking about.
No husband wants his wife to go out
with him looking like a poor, relation.
And as for the paint and powder the
affirmatives refer to, why, if. -a little
'art' makes one look prettier and
healthier^ why, put It on-rand so with
good clothes. These things make us
generous and kind in our attitudes
toward the world and help to, keep our
husbands— who cheerfully pay for them
—at their own firesides."'
Many other clever things were said
by the contestants, . but men are - so
queer that they mightn't like to have
their wives say right out in meetin*
that "Men's follies , placed beside
women's foibles would make the latter
look like fifteen cents"— and that men
are "prodigal^ and "wasteful, while
women as a class are " frugal and eco
nomical." Here's where discretion
worsts journalism! I'll withhold their
names. - *
Mrs. Orr then put the momentous
question to a vote of the club and the
negatives won. , There'are those, how
ever, who declare the women didn't
vote on the merits of the arguments,!
but on their preconceived opinions.
Now, if that be true, what kind' of
Jurors will we make when we shall have
equal rights— and duties?
)As a special guest of the club, Miss
Welsh of tHe Twentieth Century Club
of Buffalo made an; Interesting^ talk
upon club life Jn her home city. ., The
Twentieth Century holds its Initiation
fee at $100 and its dues at $25 and has
the" distinction of conducting its; cafe at
a gain to the bondholders. 'dis
tinctly clever.
Then on came the debate, with Dr.
Dorothea Moore, Dr. Minora Kibbe,
Miss Kate Atkinson and Mrs. Maddern
on the affirmative side, and Mrs.
George D. Bates, Mrs. Louisa Battles
Cooper, Mrs. George Crawford and
Mrs. Rodney Kendrick lined up for the
negative, with Mrs. J. W. Orr, one of
the aspirants for presidential honors,
holding -the watch. Six minutes wer,e
given to each speaker, with more time
permitted by the courtesy of the club.
These precious six minutes were later
augmented by three-minute summa
ries of their own sides and "knockeries"
of the opposition.
Now the latter inning was where the
fun began. The first arguments were
forceful, staid, historical and more, or
less logical. But the last phase, the
home run, will live for many a day in
the chitchat of clubdom.
For the benefit of the men, who nat
urally figured largely and more or less
complimentarily in the argumentative
battle, and the women who weren't
present, herewith are a few — only a
few excerpts— from the' discussion.
Mrs. Kendrick: "Is it extravagant
for wealthy women to wear rare jew
els? Why, jewels are like 'flowers — of
divine birth. Then, why not enjoy their
beauty? They're God-given." "Take
away the wants of the people, and,you
take away their ideals," was made
much of by Mrs. Kendrick in defense
of the desire of women to wear good
clothes and live In good houses; that a
billionaire is amply justified in build
ing a $10,000,000 house if his taste leads
him to it, for it provides work to hun
dreds and is . industrially propitious.
"Nay," says Dr. Dorothea Moore, who
is skilled in statistics and sociology,
"no man has the moral or social right
to put $10,000,000 into a hous^g for him
self and family. It is opposed socio
logically to the best interests of the
country," and before resting her case
Dr. Moore laid down some pretty stub
born facts for the club's inspection. ,
The expected happened when Mrs.
Louis Hayward . issued from the ranks,
bearing in her arms an exquisite crys
tal and silver vase, and with charming
phrasing and sincerity of manner pre
sented the ornament to the retiring
president on behalf of the club mem
bers. Now, there are various kinds of
surprises, and various degrees. But
this was distinctively the real thing,
and when the applause had died away
after a few words of appreciation and
compliments to the club and to the
board of directors, and more was
asked of her, \ she replied, with the
prettiest flush.* "Ladies, I fain would
say more, but my lips refuse."
When the gracious president, Mrs.
George Law Smith, called the meeting
to order and the prosaic minutes had
been read, a craning of necks told of
a foreshadowed event not down on
the cards, for 'all the world knew
there was to be a debate, and a live
one, on the national issue: "Resolved,
thtit women are largely responsible
for the extravagance of our modern
life." Oh, how unctuously the mar
ried men would have smiled at the ac
cusation! .
From the loads of women, gayly
gowned and bonneted, that board
ed the elevator yesterday afternoon in
the Y. M. C. A. building: there was as
suredly something doing in the Cali
fornia Club, for the ladies all said
"Third, please." And there wasl.When
the lift had left off lifting the club
rooms were filled to overflowing.

Lewis has always been a favorite
in the post. He took an active interest
in every department appertaining to it.
No matter whether it was a matter
of sports, business, athletics or mili
tary tactics, he has always showed a
keen interest. In the social life of San
Francisco he also cut a > conspicuous
figure. ..He and'. Mrs. Lewis were al
ways in attendance at the Ned Green
way ' functions and others of equal
standing in' society's realm.
Among the officers of. the post yes
terday the disappearance of their
brother' officer was the sole topic of
conversation. Conjectures on all sides
failed to throw any light upon the
subject. None of them took any stock
in the suicide theory, but all seemed
to be of the Impression that . he had
left the place and by his own volition,
but as to whys and wherefores they
could offer no suggestions. His quar
ters in the post were practically dis
mantled and nearly all his effects
packed up and ready for -shipment to
Honolulu. Mrs. Lewis closed the house
yesterday and . to-day will go to the
home of Mrs. Handbury to , await de
velopments. It was suggested by some
at> the post that he might possibly
have gone to Canada, while others
thought he may have taken the steam
er San Jose, which left on last Satur
day at noon for Panaml. and inter
vening • points. .
His family are at a loss to account
for his disappearance. His mother,
Mrs. Handbury, wife of Colonel
Thomas H. Handbury, is prostrated by
the blow; and is a double sufferer at
this time, occasioned by the serious
illness of Colonel Handbury, who is in
the General Hospital at the Presidio
awaiting a serious operation. Lewis'
sisters," Miss Virginia Lewis and Miss
Ethelyn Lewis, are entirely in the dark
regarding their brother's actions, and
can only think that he is suffering
from a. temporary aberration' of the
mind. His wife, formerly Miss Amy
Wright of Oregon, is equally in" the
His intimate friends at the post say
that for some time . he seemed to be
brooding over his lack of ability, on
account of age, to reach a high po
sition in army life. About tw<j months
ago by the death of an uncle he in
herited. It Is alleged, about $12,000. This
was a great disappointment to him, as
he felt that he was entitled to a much
larger share of his uncle's. great. estate.
It is reported that he put in an applica
tion for a four months', leave of ab
sence in order to go East and look into
the matter and, ' if necessary, contest
the will.
The request for- the leave was not
granted him, for the - reason : that his
company, the Twenty-eighth Coast Ar
tillery, had been ordered to Honolulu.
Upon the receipt of refusal of his re
quest he appeared to be greatly dis
' The mysterious disappearance of
Lieutenant Victor Courtney Lewis from
the Presidio Is the cause of great won 7
der and surprise not only to his brother
officers at the. post, but also to the
city's social contingent, in which -he
was a prominent factor.
"Wife, 'mother and- sisters are all at
a loss to understand any reason for
his actions. That he has committed
suicide as suggested in the note left
behind him Is not regarded with any
degree of i credence by the people of the
POSt- • •.-'"' .";.',
¦ Why and for what reason he left
his post of duty, his wife, his family
and friends is steeped In mystery. He
had recently come into a handsome in
heritance, and his accounts with the
post exchange are said to be in per
fect shape. . . "
The last seen of him was on Satur
day morning shortly after 11 o'clock,
as he was rushing down Market street
in front of The Call: building. There
he accosted an old friend whom he had
knov.n in Po'rtland, Or. He was ap
parently in great haste, but he stopped
to pass the time of day, and said he
would sail j for Honolulu on Saturday,
April 30. He further admonished his
friend to be sure to come to the trans
port dock on that day to give^himself
and his wife a farewell.
