KISSES AND AFFECTION
MARK ONE DAY DIVORCE
OF THE HINTERS COUPLE
Judge Graham Sets Aside
Decree on Learning o£
Strange Collusion
TOO MANY LAWYERS
Six in Crew That Came Near
Causing Wreck on Sea
of Matrimony
The interlocutory decree of dlvoco
obtained by Mrs. Eliza Hinters last
Monday was set aside yesterday by
Jud?:e Graham. Thereby hangs a talc
wfaSSb was told by Oscar Htnters. labor
leader and husband of the one day
divorcee, just before the court reversed
ItseUL
"I want to make a statement," said
Hinters. "That divorce was«obtained j
l>y collusion. My wife and I were liv- j
ing together when she filed tuit for!
divorce and we have been living to- j
pethcr ev<?r since. Sunday she told' me
she loved me more than ever. Mon
day she' kissed me goodby. tripped
away to court and got a judgment of
divorce against me by default. Then j
she came home, kissed me again, asked j
mf for money and I gave her %2 after
which she ma-ie a date with me to go
to a Spanish dinner tonight.'.' I
"Why didn't you appear yesterday
when the case was called?" asked
Jurifre Graham.
. 'F didn't know that it was coming
up," answered Hinters. "She didn't
play fair with me. She and her attor
ney — Julian Pinto, and her stepson and
I and my attorneys — I had five of J
them — all agreed to the divorce, with I
the understanding that she was not to]
ask for any alimony. My attorneys!
«said that the divorce .would not *last
more th.in four or five months and thati
fl:e would surely come back to me. \
• "In the face of our agreement she!
Went into court and pot an order for.
I.'O a month alimony. I won't stand forj
alimony. She is a good hair dresser, •
bufi fine health and can make more
:io"ney dressing hair than I can bar
berinjj."
'Did your wife's attorney. Mr. Pinto,
know that y^u and your wife were liv
i"~ together?' asked Judge Graham.
. "Sure, he d!d." answered Hinters.
'Once when h<? called at the- house I
to!d him that Mrs. Hinters was in the
back room eating lunch. Our only
trouble was due to nor stepson. Ilej
agreed to support her if she got ai
divorce. It Isn't trufc that T was drank]
most of the time and was cruel to her.;
She is as good a woman as ever
breatheiL I would do anything fo t r her.
She <-an have a divorce for five or six
months, or for all time, but I won't pay
a ct-nt alimony."
"Don't wurry." said Judge Graham.
"Neitjier you nor your wife can have a
divorce. The decree already granted is
aside. Case continued until August
28. Mr. Clerk, issue a subpena for
Mrs. Hinters and her attorney."
Turning to Hitters, Judge Graham
added: "Appear here on that date, and
bring along your five attorneys."

KID SULLIVAN CONDUCTS
REVELS DESPITE MOONEY
Violates Law in Franklin
Street Resort With
Impunity.
"Kid" Sullivan, best known as a
pickpocket and intimate friend of Chief
of Police^ Dinan, has coyly from
the obscurity of backroom resorts, to
which he-retired sometime ago. ' He is
again the tuxedoed manager of Bloom's
resort in Franklin street near Golden
Gate avenue, where he runs, as he ran
it before, In open violation of the city
ordinance prohibiting dancing and the
frequenting by women of dissolute
character. Every night the place is
raucous with revel which apparently is
not heard by the police. Only one
other place In the tenderloin enjoys
equal immunity and that 7 i* Pratt A
Tierney's in Ellis street near Fillmore.
Sullivan's "pull" with the chief of
police is well known. The two have
been friends ever .since Dlnan, a
young detective, earned a reputation
as the Sherlock Holmes of ; petty of
fenders whom he apprehended through
Sullivan's efficient work as a "stool."
The "Kid" In return was' overlooked
by the police and was allowed to ply
his trade as "dip," or pickpocketswith
'out molestation. . ' \u25a0
But what the tenderloin is- asking
is how it happens , that Captain Moonr_
ey's "flying, squadron"; does not' wheel
four abreast into Bloom's* dive" and
clean out the place. Dancing'prohib
ited by law and music, such as it is,
go on all night. .There is no flhishfor
the fun until the sun is up. Yet it is
never interrupted.' .
A 1A 1 quartet, of plain clothes policemen
makes revelry dangerous for \u25a0 the \u25a0 other
resorts' in the new \u25a0 tenderloin.' . Quiet
reigns up" and down. Golden Gate ave
nue and neighboring sjreets.-;. The back
rooms, of- the saloons are almost de
serted at night and other "cafe owners,
deprived of the patronage *of the "fair,"
face ruin. -But Bloom's runs wide' open
and no 'one interferes. ,;• !
Bloom's was-closed :up. once. It at
tracted the attention of ; Captain' Moon-^
ey, who was en gaged An the good .'work
of . expelling undesirable " from
the . residential ! section and .he > sup
"pressed vthe2pla.ee." r. -The .'next ?.• time "-.it
opened "Kid" Sullivan was the "owner."
"Wise ' Bloom!" " said . the habitues ;. of
saloon >' night life: "Crafty.': Bloom!"
And so It happens. that the, management
of; the cafe; is as- bad \u25a0 as - ever; It : : was,'
but there, is no. Interference . from '. the
policed . Kid Sullivan. Chief: Dinan's

• The' Santa Maria. *is owned by^.the
Union .steamship company of this city.
The steamer- was built: on the lakes
for a>, general freighter, : but . proved
unprofitable." . The Union ..steamship
company, bought the- vessel and turned
It over, to the Newport- News company,
to (be :corivcrteil into ,an oil tanker
forlservlce on this coast. The work/
was -done and the steamer arrived here
safely,* but with ; cargo .damaged. A
number of -short trips were made,
well'; as one: to Panama with; a cargo
of;liquid>fuel.-j : . '
Woodenj pegs may serve- for a; time
to hold, even steel in place, but- as a
substitute' for honestly driven rivets
they ; proved poor substitutes. Therb
was a heavy shrinkage of the Santa
Maria's cargo during the voyage to
the .;: isthmus., While at Colon.: the
steamer . struck a submerged wreck,
and upon its return to this port was
taken' to the Union iron works for sur
vey and repairs. The damage sustained
byLstrikirig; the derelict proved to -be
small, but the survey of the interior,
revealed a j state • of affairs as serious
as that uncovered when the' "surveyors
discovered the putty .; In ..afgreat" j flaw

blame for that other piece of duplicity
was placed on the Bethlehem .^"steel
works,; where a foreman, desirous of
'saving -a": heavy loss to his. department,
had, plugged, and- hidden a' flaw in.the
great. 'casting upon which the liner's
stability depended.
It was. found that .the ..rivets that
held* together; the sheeted, steel ~ : .or
the Santa Maria's bulkheads had been
carelessly.^driven. •, Those /afterward

'^Pianos with us, are merchandise, and as such are subject to the most rigid
and-scieritific rules of modern merchandising. In office, in shop and repair
departments, in shipping and salesrooms, only the most modern methods are
: .in force, minimizing the expense of handling, of selling, of details in each sep-
arate department to the lowest /possible -margin. Where we save, you saVe,
hence the character of the piano and the extreme lowness in price.- ;
Thus the reputation, the prosperity of our House has been builded from
v* ; smallest of beginnings to its present magnitude,: the greatest in -the /
whole i^-West. : - These are some of the reasons 'why Aye- are the chosen rep-
resentatives of such great firms as Knabe, Mason & Hanilin, The Cable
. Co., Hardman, ?eck & Co., The .Packard Co., Ludwig & Co., The
Price & Teeple Piano Co. and many others of the world's great manufac-
CJ From every standpoint , we merit your confidence, and from each point of
