Big Rally for Judge Lawlor
Jurist Is Heartily Indorsed
Candidate Favors the
Recall of the
In support of the candidacy of Judge
William P. Lawlor for i-e-election to
the bench of the superior court, nearly
500 enthusiastic men and women of
the Mission district met at a rally last
night in Columbus hall. Mission anfl
Twenty-ninth street. A big brass band
amused an overflow meeting held on
the sidewalk, while several well known
speakers told the audience of Judge
Lawlors fitness for the judicial posi
tion he has so long held.
Conrad Collonan presided. Sidney
M. Van Wyek, introduced as the first
speaker, said in part:
"There is a fight on against Judge
Lawlor, but he will be re-elected never
the less. Judge Lawlor is known as an
honest man—one who can't be bought.
There has never, during the 14 years he
lias been on the bench, one word of
criticism or taint of suspicion concern
ing him. He lias tried the rich and the
poor alike— the moneyed kings get the
same treatment the laborer receives.
For that reason, among a host of
others. Judge Lawlor is entitled to con
tinue as superior, court judge."
Among others who spoke of Judge
Lawlors integrity and fitness for the
judiciary were Supervisers Adolf Kosh
land and William H. McCarthy.
Judge Lawlor spoke briefly, saying
he favored the recall of the judiciary,
"which would never deprive an honest
man of his seat." .
He was given a rousing reception.

Investigation of the death of Julius

Monday afternoon, following an acci
j dental pcaldinpr in the bathroom Sun
day, failed to dcvelup evidence to sup
. port charges of negligence and mis!
-! conduct preferred against the surg.ons
I and attendants by Val de Graeve. a dis
missed employe of the hospital. The
[ inquest in Napa Tuesday developed the
i fact that the affair was entirely acci
j dental and that the shock of scalding
caused death.

-, lect could be developed, said nothinc
: had been discovered to warrant such a
SUlt other than the statement ot De
Graeve. which is uncorroborated.
The principal charge of De Ofaen
la that the surgeons were criminally
negligent in failing to renew the picric
acid bandage for 4S hours and he inti
, mates this hastened death. It is a
'. matter of common knowledge that re
! newal of tbeee bandages within such

that have become infected.
Walter. Russcl and Albert Schulken.
sons of the victim, say they will make
a thorough investigation.
Coroner Brownlee of Napa said the
inquest had proved the death was acci
dental and that good medical care was
I given the patient. Rchulken was suf
j fering from mental derangement and
i nervous breakdown due to business
'< worries. He was subject to collapse
J and the shock of getting in the ex
