Fight Follows Former Spouse's
Attempt to Renew Attentions
to Remarried Woman
OAKLAND, July 25. — Dissatisfied
with the divorce court as an arbiter of
domestic differences, Joseph A. Moore,
a tinsmith, reverted to the caveman's
prehistoric method of wooing last
night and went to Linden and Fifth
streets to maul H. Anderson, an Elm
liurst shop keeper, who is the husband
of Moore's former wife. The tinsmith
was whipped in the battle, was mis
treated by a husky interloper named
Teepers, who separated the com
batants, and was then arrested by Po
liceman George Green at the request
of Mrs. . Anderson. Anderson proved
his fistic prowess in his wife's presence
as ably as any caveman could have
done, but he, too, was sent to jail.
Teepers, the peace maker, caused the
jTierchant's arrest.
Moore, it appeared, was in the habit
of hunting up his former wife period
ically and demanding that her affec
tions again be his. Last night he went
to pee the woman, who, he learned, was
visiting, and unexpectedly discovered
that Anderson was with her. He then
hunted up the merchant and chal
lenged Anderson to combat to prove
l^fore the wife which was the better
man. Anderson was demonstrating his
right to the spouse when Teepers came
Teopers jammed the men's heads to
gether and sent for the police. Not
understanding the nature of the fight.
In* had Anderson arrested.
"I want this man arrested, too," de
clared Mrs. Anderson, and Moore was
added to the police list. This morning
the two prisoners appeared before Po
lice Judge Smith.
Attorney Leonard Clark appeared
for Anderson, but had no chance to
argu<\ The woman and her two hus
bands talked at once. Judge Smith,
foreseeing trouble, put the cases over
until tomorrow. The magistrate must
decide whether a husband is privileged
to whip his predecessor if the wife ap
proves it and desires it.
Mrs. Nellie Dodson Prefers Se
rious Charge Against Spouse
OAKLAND, July 25. — Mrs. Nellie
Dodson of 103 Telegraph jA-enue, used
31 butcher knife late last night to
rfp^l an attack made by her husband,
.1. W. Dodson. When the woman re
fused to accede to his alleged demand
that she take up life in a resort to
support him* Dodson, it is alleged, went
home intoxicated and told his wife he
could not lind work, then ordered her
to make the living. She refused and
lie struck her. . .'.\i
The wife ran into the kitchen, and,
•when Dodson followed her she seized
the knife. She^stood at the wall and
lunged with the weapon as Dodson
struck at her. The man grabbed the.
blade and prevented a serious wound,
but his fingers' were gashed. •By this
time neighbors, hearing the screams of
Mrs. Dodson. had entered and disarmed
the wife. The police arrested both.
Mrs. Dodson was released this morn
ing, but her husband, charged with
battery, was held in bail of $1,000. He
will face the' police court tomorrow.
Mrs. Dodson is 32 years old and has a 6
year old son. .

to stand for the board of the entire party.

that he received his "knockout" at the end of

Jas. B. Leroy , Who
Was Captured at
Tracy By Sheriff
Man Jailed in San Mateo County
Long Sought by College \u25a0
BERKELEY, July 25. — For the last
two years the polica of this city have
been on the trail«of J. B. Leroy,'horse
thief and burglar, who was arrested at
Tracy yesterday by Sheriff. Chatham of
San Mateo county for horse stealing on
the peninsula. It is extremely likely
that the Berkeley police will try Leroy,
alias James Elliott, alias J. W. Bailey,
for crimes committed here If prosecu
tion in San Mateo fails.
Leroy began his career of crime in
this city about two years ago, when
he stole a number of tools from vari
ous contractors of Berkeley. He rep
resented himself as a painter and said
he lived in Grove street. He entered
the home of W. F. Webb, 1523 Milvia
street, a stone's throw from the police
station, January. 18, . 1909. and stole
carpenter's tools valued at $11. 'These
later were rdcovered in' an Oakland
pawnshop. •
A few days afterwards Leroy made
a raid on the tool house at Hillcrest
and Contra Costa road, in the fashion
able Claremont section, and stole many
tools which later were taken from the
Moskowitz second hand store, Oak
land. £"'\u25a0>-\u25a0\u25a0*
His horse stealing began with the
theft of a fine animal and buggy
owned by R. T. Howard of 1724 Alca
tra"z avenue. Leroy rented the rig to
go to the cemetery,, he said, to put
flowers on his mother's grave. He was
not seen thereafter, but the horse and
buggy were recovered in San Jose in
about a month. He had driven to the
garden city anJ sold the rig for nearly
$100. a
Under the name of J. W.V Bailey, Le
roy represented to the«Californla sta
bles of Allston" way that he was em
ployed by th<j Schmldt-Skilling realty
firm. He rented a horse and buggy,
which he sold to a saloon man at the
county line. r;*, 4
For six months the police heard
nothing, more of him until January 3
of this year, when he rented a horsa
and buggy of Searle & Curran, 2051
Center street, and dropped out of sight.
After much detective work the animal
and buggy were located in Oakland
and secured from the Santa Rosa horse
dealer to whom he had sold them
for $50.
Recovers Stolen Rig
OAKLAND, July 25.— Sheriff .Chat
ham came to Oakland todayto recover

through information obtained by De
tective McSorley, who was working on
the Russell theft.
Leroy, in Jail :.
REDWOOD CITY. July 25.— Sheriff
Robert Chatham arrived at Redwood
City last night with J. B. Leroy. who
stole a, double team from Russell &
Salter, San Mateo liverymen, Thursday
afternoon. Chatham caught the horse
thief, who gave his name as J. W.
Black at Tracy yesterday morning,
while the fellow was at breakfast. His

Elmhurst Broker on Trial on
Charge of Filling In Blank
OAKLAND, July 25.— The trial of J.
G. Henninger, an Elmhurst real estate
man. who is accused of mortgaging
property twice and defrauding Doraen
ico Lavetto thereby of $1,000, began to
day before Judge Brown.
Henningcr secured a loan for Paul
and Katherlne Scholtz, owners of
property at Second and Merchant
streets, Elmhurst. from Maria Flexel
by mortgaging the lot for them. Later
he told them the mortgage was im
properly executed and induced the
Scholzes. they declare, to make out
a mortgage with the name of the mort
gagee in blank, and filled in his own
name. This mortgage appears of rec
ord. Henninger then assigned bis
mortgage to Lavagetto for $1,000.
Henninger admits selling the mort
gage to Lavagetto. but declares that
the mortgage was not made out In
blank. His defense is that Scholta
owed him $1,500 and gave him the
mortgage in payment. __^__
