Women workers for fund leaving entrance of King's Daughters' home for incurables in Oakland.
Must Raise Remainder of a Fund
of $100,000 to Finish
OAKLAND. Aug. " 22. — Th« King's
Daughters of California: are making
a final appeal for" a building: fund of
$100,000 with which .to , erect and
equip the proposed new home for in
curables at 3900 Broadway. The re
cent campaign in behalf of the fund
resulted in $55,000 in cash and pledges
being raised, which' leaves a balance
of $42,000 that must be added to the
fund in order to establish the home.
The new building is an absolute
necessity if the unfortunate incurables
are to be properly cared for, as % the
present home is entirely inadequate.
Regular hospitals -will not take in
curable?. The King's Daughters is the
only organization that has attempted
to do this necessary and humane work,
which has been carried on entirely
through the charity of the organiza
tion and friends.
As a final appeal in this particular
effort, a campaign has been inaug
urated under the direction of Mrs.
Matilda Brown, president of the or
ganization, to raise the balance —
$42,000. Every home in Oakland,
Berkeley and Alameda is asked to
contribute at least one dollar.
Coin envelopes are being distributed
from house to house by specially ap
pointed workers, who may be iden
tified by a 4a 4 badge they wear, with
"King's Daughters" printed upon it.
Every family is a«ked to donate what
it can, Inclosing the amount of the
gift- in the envelope, which will be
called for Thureday, August 25, be
tween the hours of 5 and 8 p. m. .

Three Undergraduates Suspend=
ed for a Year and One Given
Warning for Cheating
BERKELEY, Aug. 22. — Drastic ac
tion has been taken by the. under
graduate student affairs committee
of the university as a result of a rigid
investigation of cheating during the
final examinations last April, and three
students have been suspended for a
year commencing May 18, 1910. One
student was warned that another re
port of cheating would result in his
dismissal. •

versity, which last year adopted a
strict code of ethics in' regard to
"cribbing" in the annual- test, re
ported the cheating of three of the
students. They were discovered using
outside help in the tests in mining 6
and physics 5, two of the hardest
courses. Summary action on the part
of the student affairs committee fol

cheating in , mathematics B. In all
cases the offending students , were
haled before the committee and asked

mended the suspension . of a year in
three cases and the warning of the
student in the fourth.
The members of the student affairs
committee are pledged to keep secret
the details of the cases of cheating,
and no names will be given out to the
public unless the case is so flagrant
as to warrant it.

President of State Society Asks
City Council to Protect
OAKLAND, Aug. 22. — Legislation
holding the owners of "baby farms"
and maternity homes rigidly respoiisi
ble to sonic authority is recommended
to the city council in a letter from Ed
win "H. Xewhall, president of the Cali
fornia Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Children.
In the communication Newhall in
forms the council that officers of the
society have at different times investi
gated the foundling homes in the vi
cinity of Oakland. Regarding these
places he reports:
"The conditibns under which some of
the little ones have been found have
been far from ideal, although the man
agers kept themselves sufficiently with
in the law to avoid arrest for actual
cruelty. Tn some of these places there
were found too many children for one
person to attend properly. In others
the housing, was improper and the san
itation not of the best.' One place now
exists where a private maternity estab
lishment and rooms where children are
boarded are conducted under one roof.
This is bad from a moral standpoint at
least and the low fees charged for ma
ternity cases and children's • board
leaves the place open to question if not
to criticism. All to whom the lives of
women and children are entrusted
should be" responsible to some one,
either a board of directors or public
As. an immediate remedy Xewhall
recommends that the state law enacted
several years ago to regulate maternity
establishments and places where chil
dren are. kept to board be enforced.
He condemns the practice alleged to
prevail in some homes of selling chil
dren to the 'highest bidder. This is
done, he reports, "under the pretense
that the managers wish simply to reim
burse themselves for the expense in
curred by the mothers, whom they have

Estate of the Late Thomas
P. Winter
OAKLAND. Aug. 22. — Taking of tes
timony in the contest over the probate
"of the will of the ]ate Thomas P. Win
ter was begun today in Judge Wells'
court. An estate of $15,000 is the stake
in this contest, which is waged by Mrs.
Alice M. Wall, daughter of the deceased,
against Mrs. Susanna E. Winter, her
stepmother and the second wife o£ Win
ter. " •
The will leaves nearly the entire es

a legacy of only $200. She contends
that the will should be set aside on the
ground of fraud and undue influence
on the deceased on the part of Mrs.
Winter. Her stepmother refused to let
her see her father for a long time te
fore his death, she testified, and poi
soned his mind against her.
A peculiarity of family relationship

"Mr. Bert Brown oi Toncpah"
Cashes Check, Leaving Cus
pidor and Finger Bowls
OAKLAND. Ausr. 23.— "Mr. Sort
Brown of Tonopah" is the way a six
foot citizen, garbed in loose fitting
clothes and a' -sombrero, inscribed his
name on the register at th* St. Mark
hotel, where he obtained $23 yesterday
on a bogus check for which he left as
security with the clerk a worn trav
eling bag. The grip was supposed to
contain bullion, but when the man
ager of the hotel opened it h« found la
the receptacle only a cuspidor and two
cut glass finger bowls belonging to tiia
ow,i house.
tlroywn arrived at the hotel yesterday.
He rented a room, and toward evening
left the suit case with the clerk, teli
in - the clerk, that he would see Ui«
town for a while. Then he drew out
his checkbook and asked for $10. say
ing he was short of ready money. Tho
cl^rk had only $25. for which Drown
save him a check. Then the guest went
to his room, and a. few minutes later
ranjc for a bellboy.
•'Get me a brush and comb. ' he said.
Th»: boy found neither, and Browti
asked for the errip left with the clerk,
and when it was brought gave the boy
the worn traveling tag.
"There's enough in that to buy this
hotel." remarked "Mr. Brown" senten
tiously. as the boy went out of the
room. Both the bellboy and the clerk
were so imprersed with the man's man
ners that they really believed he had
left his bullion in the hotel safe. The
evening came, and the Tiotel manager
learned that the check was bogus.
"Vv'e have the grip, anyway." said thfl
clerk. The manager took the grip out
of the safe and opened it. expecting to
see a fortune. Instead he found his
own cuspidor and two finger bowls.
