Mrs. Mabel Garcia, who is being sued
for divorce by M. C. Garcia, a com
mission merchant, told her version of
the domestic disagreements yesterday.
She explained that tlie "my own dear
boy" letter which Garcia believed was
addressed to a man whom she loved
better than her husband, was written
for Garcia to find and read. She left
it in her satchel purposely when she
left her room at the Santa Barbara
hotel, she said. Her reason, she testi
fied, was that her husband had fre
quently manifested jealoupy.

picture man. answered the divorce
complaint of France E. Clapham yes
terday, denying her allegations of
cruelty. That he misconducted him
self, during a trip with Fannie Clay,
a waitress. Clapham admitted, but he
pleaded that his wife knew of It and
condoned his actions. Clapham denied
that he had an income of $7,500 a year
from the Western amusement company,
and asserted that A. C. Roebuck of
Chicago was the principal stockholder
in the corpoaitlon.
Sophia McKillop, who was • granted
a divorce by Judge Graham from Rob
ert E. McKillop, testified that she had
been crying for years because of her
husband's cruel treatment. She wept
copiously in, court and testified that
McKillop has forced her to sing in a

Barbers' union, local No. .148, Monday -
night -voted on proposed amendments
to the international constitution. The
vote was in favor of continuous mem
bership in the union. The law at pres

he must sever his connection with the
union, and if at a later period \u25a0 he .
wants to return to the journeyman's
job. he must come in as a'new,candi
date. The amendment provides that
when a journeyman . retires to work
for himself he can retain his member
ship on payment of 60 cents a month.
The proposition to reduce the salary of
the international president from $2,500
to $2,000 a year was voted- down,* as
was also the one to merge the ' office
of editor of the -international Journal

OVER SCHOOL SITE
Haight and Ashbury and North
Beach Improvement Clubs
Clash Over Lowell High
Improvement associations represent
ing the .North Beach and Haight and
Ashbury districts argued for three
hours before the board of education
yesterday afternoon on the selection of
a site for the new Lowell high school.
The Haight and Ashbury improvement
club advocated the site bounded by
Hayes street, Masonic avenue and Ash
bury and Grove streets, basing their
case on the fact that the board of
supervisors bought that block spe
cifically for that school, and the fact
that the location was geographically
about the center of the city. , The
North Beach faction argued f-or the
site in Washington street . between
Hyde and Larkin. claiming that the
Ashbury district had the Polytechnic
Commercial and Mission high schools,
while it had none.
Bo tli sides advanced considerable ar
gument for and, against the Washing
ton street site until President Banner
man called attention to a misapprehen
sion. He stated that the clubs were
fighting over the Washington street
site when there was little or no chance
of its being chosen by the board, slt
was merely recommended by Superin
tendent Roncovleri and had mot come
up for formal action.
The North Beach aggregation, at the
suggestion of Senator E. L[ Wolfe,
made thei r entire argument first as
the affirmative, the other, clubs follow
ing for the negative. /',
Andrea Sbarboro, V Theodore Bacaga
lupi, P. A. Bergerot and Mothers, spoke
for North beach, pleading. the cause. of
the workingmen of the city and asking
that the Lowell? high* school'.^ be left
them in that there -was: a crying ' de
mand for : it. Petitions were i presented
from various bodies of the district, and
finally the case was . closed by I. W.
Parsons. ' .
William Herrin made the first argu
ment for the Hayes and Masonic avenue
site, quoting from k toy prove
that the majority," of \u25a0 students -were
from theCdistrict that 'he. represented

Says Operator -
The party- of oilmen, bankers and

through the Santa Maria > petroleum
fields returned -to San Francisco Mon
day - morning. One of the features

has brought wealth to the nation. We,
here in ' California have the opportunity
before . us. \\ r e ihave the most pro
ductive fields in the United States.". We'
reap today more from our oil than from
our ; gold. Let' us keep for California
the wealth that comes from the wells.
To do this we- must bring into accord
the 'oilmen,. the press and the brokers.'
If we work, together we can place this
Industry upon the high plane it merits."
V A*» feature of , the- evening was the
speech of -Nicholas Covarrubias, who

said De Jongh. "they are in a terrible
shape;- in fact, I have not encountered
worse roads in any other part of the
state. The main highways are cut up
owing to the recent storms. The Ford
car which I drove acted splendidly, and
I consider, that many of the sales which

TO OUST BARON
Judge Van Fleet Decides That
Hop Company Directors Were
Not in Conspiracy
The charges of conspiracy made by
Baron Louis yon Horst against J. Mur
ray Earsman and other officers of tha
American hop and barley company wera
held to be groundless by Judge Van
Fleet of the United States circuit court
yesterday in a decision sustaining tha
demurrer of the defendants.
In his complaint Yon Horst alleged
that the present officers, elected by tho
Central trust company, were trying to
freeze him out. He owns 189,940 shares
of stock out of the 190,000 issued by
the hop company, which in 1905 gave
the trust company the power of attor
ney over 170,000 shares, to be voted at
all meetings. In January, 1903, Ears
man, president, and the directors elect
ed by the trust company, turned tha
170.000 shares over to the trust com
pany as security for the hop company's
debts, wjiich they agreed should be paid
within two years. These debts con
sisted of $200,000. owing the trust com
parfy and $37,!>25 owing other creditors.
The conspiracy charges were based
on the board's action in levying a 10
cent assessment while Yon Horst was
in Europe last year. Its object, to*
said, was to get control of the stock
and 'reorganize the company. The suit
in equity to enjoin the assessment was
directed against the hop company, tho
trust company and Earsman.
Judge Van Fleet states that the facts
do not . show conspiracy, as the trust
company acted within Its legal rights.
It had both power to make assessments
and in this manner to protect its own
interests. Furthermore, the debts wera
due and payable last January.
