Frances Patrick, Whose Affair,
With Dr. A. E. Byron Ended
in Stabbing, Is Indifferent
Daughter Found in Hotel Room
With Paramour Brazen in
Midst of Near Tragedy
Mother Tries to Find Excuses
for Offspring Who Brought
Woe to Parents
SINCE the beginning of time the
wiles of the devil have, had .ap
plied to them, one modifying,
mollifying form of phraseology
or another, and among: these, in latter
days, has coma hypnotism— stronger
than the •evil eye" of old.
Hypnotism, it was, it is claimed, that
led Frances Patrick of Oakland to for- '
get all her early training, all her love
for her parents, all her ideas of de
cency, for Doctor Byron, until matter*
went so far that her half crazed father
stabbed the man Tuesday night in a
final effort to rescue the girl.
- Now Doctor Byron is at the point of
death, J. B. Patrick is In the Oakland
prison. Mr,-. Patrick's haggard face
twitches with grief. Frances' Patrick is
the. center of. a very -whirlwind of un
enviable notoriety— and hypnotism is
called the root of all the trouble.
Same Old Story
Not,very punitive are the advocates
of th» theory, though, when one probes
Into the matter. It seems to have"been
after all'the old "way of a man with a
maid," th« common or garden meth
ods of lovemaking, .the ever old, ever
new mean* of fascination that the doc
tor tried on'the pretty girl.
She is pretty—wonderfully so, with
■w>ipt;aome one has called "the devir*
prett!n«ss" of blue ' eyes and pink
cheeks and the reddest of lips. There
is no strength in the face, only obsti
nacy, and she has the pulpy, soft,
nerveless tapering white hands tha'f"
go generally with mere or less elas
ticity of morals.
One can-easily understand why/ the
man became infatuated with her. Tall
and slender, she has deep, brilliantly
blue eyes with the lone black lashes
and brows that the name Patrick
would sußKest was there, a straight
fine little nose, a tiny scarlet mouth —
1 might go on in terms that describe
the heroine of a melodrama— and that
Is what she is after all.
Father Evokes Pity
It is to;, her father, old beyond-his
years from ill health, that one's pity
goes out strongest, though. For her.
one's sympathy Is only relative, be
ep.use ■be seems to feel the situation'
less than any one. She came perilously
near being brazen yesterday after
noon. Part of her behavior might be
ascribed to resentment at publicity,
yart of it me from nervousness! but
the bright eyes were veiled In no tears.
there was no shrinking from the stares
r>t the public, no loss of self-posses
sion, as she came to the city hall from
her home.
KM for t::e mother, grief stricken and
u#d as she is. there is for her a
<' nsolatlon which the father has not.
Something r.f the'romance of It all has

Terror of Auto Drivers Seen
Accepting Money by
Two Detectives
Two Charges Preferred Against
Ceinar and a Third Is
Hanging Fire
ENSNARED in a cleverly laid
trap and "caught with the
goods." Policeman William L.
Ceinar. who recently gained
country wide fame as the man who had
repeatedly arrested Jack Johnson, ths
heavy weight champion fighter, for
speeding in his automobile, was taken
into custody by Detectives Conian and
Leonhaj-dt late yesterady afternoon
after they had seen him accept an en
velope containing a fh-e dollar green
back from Oscar G. Killop, an auto
man whom he had threatened with ar
rest He was taken to the office of
Chief of Police Se>niour. who had de
vised the scheme to catch him, stripped,
of his policeman's star and revolver,
and ordered into jail.
Protesting his innocence, he waß led;
to the city prison and booked on two
j charges of accepting bribes.
Complainants Auto Men
The complaining witnesses are Kil
lop and A. R. Dawson. sales manager
of the Stoddard motor car company,
who charges that Ceinar forced him to
pay $5 for immunity from prosecution
on a charge of speeding on March 16.
Dawson' accusation will be more thor
oughly investigated, as it is thought!
that Ceinar signed the auto dealer's
name to a court order releasing bail
in the case, after having returned $15
of the $20 deposited as bail by Daw
son when arrested. In the opinion of
Ceinar's superiors this act would con
stitute the crime of forgery. Ceinar
was released last night on $6,000 bail
by Judge Bernard Flood.
When confronted by the evidenca
against him in Chief Seymour's office
yesterday and standing face to face
with the man who passed him the slip
of currency. Ceinar turned to the head
of the department and said
"This is kind of hard on me. chief."
"I don't care If it Is." replied Sey-.
mour •'You knew what you wer»
doing. And I want to tell you, Ceinar.
that I am going to book you on an«
other charge tomorrow."
Says He Was Trapped
The accused policeman smiled $
sickly smile, turned to Detective Con
lan and said:
"Well, Tom, I'm ready to be locked
up. I've arrested all violators of th»
law -without regard to who they were.
The trouble was I was too severe. They
threatened to get me—some of those
chauffeurs and auto men did. I guess
this is a trap. They'll see that I wasn't
taking money from any one."
On the table In front of him. liow«
ever, lay the little blue envelope that
he had taken from Killop. Inside the
envelope was the $5 bill. In Seymour's
secret file were the numbers that cor
respond to the numbers on the green
baok and there were four men present
who had seen Celnar take the little
Envelope Not Opened
The envelope was not opened when,
it was returned to the chief. Con lan,
had made the arrest before Ceinar
could have opened it. He took it from
him as he was attempting to pass it
to Peter Capitanlch. a coffee distrib
uter residing at 1849 McAllister street,
with whom he was talking when Killop
drove up in his machine. Conlan had
a short struggle to set possession of
the envelope, wrenching it from Cei
nar's hand In order to do so.
; Killop was halted by Celnar'on Baker;
street Tuesday morning just - before. IS
o'clock and told that he was violating
the law by driving his machine at' 30
miles an hour. The automobile man ex
plained that he had • no money to deposit]
