Judge Seawell Hears Conten
tions on Demurrer in
Estate Controversy
Final argument was heard yesterday
before Judge Seawell in the superior
court en the demurrer filed by the
defendants to the suit brought by the
executors of the estate of Mrs. Anna
C. Spreckel* against John D. Spreckels
and A. B. Spreckels to recover on be
half of their mother's estate portions
of the gifts of the late Claus Spreckels
to his sons, on the allegation that the
srifts were part of the community
property of Mrs. Spreckels.
Attorney Charles S. Wheeler repre
sented C. A. Spreekels and Rudolph
Spreckels, the executors. He spoke
briefly, concluding the argument begun
the preceding day. Wheeler argued
that the will of Mrs. Spreckels did
not amount to a recognition of the
gifts to John D. Spreckels and A. B.
Judge Seawell remarked that in his
view the mental attitude of Mrs.
Spreckels was a recognition of the
gifts as having been made by her hus
band, and that whatever the circum
stances were her husband had done
this thing, and for that reason John
. t>. Spreckels and A. B. Spreckels hir
ing already been provided for abun
dantly, she made no provision for them
out of her estate.
Attorney Peter F. Dunn? of Morri
son. Dunne & Brobeok, attorneys for
John D. Spreckels and A. B. Spreckels.
stated in closing that the argument for
the other side had made no impres
sion on the position taken by John D.
Spreckels and A. B. Spreckels. He ,
summed up the case and submitted
that the right of the wife to question
the gifts was a purely pergonal equity,
not arising out of a pre-existing estate.
and forming? no portion of her estate
upon her death, and that if she did not
see fit to avail herself of it, the equity
did not pass to her executors or to
the devisees and legatees for whom
they stood, and they were not within
that equity the law gave the wife to
question, in her discretion, the ar
rangements of her husband. Further,
Dunne contended, the will of Mrs.
Spreckels, in adopting the language of
her husband's will, was a solemn rec
ognition of the gifts and a sufficient
consent in writing, and that the plain
tiffs who claim under her will were
estopped to question and stultify the
arrangements of their father, whi-h
had been so solemnly recognized in the
will of their mother.
In the rooms of the California de
velopment board, on the third floor of

fair in Willits. H. L. McEJeroy, presi
dent of the Willit? Farmers' associa

Corsets Indicate that splendidly impressive presence which
marks the well-dressed woman, whose every garment is in ex

Every La Vida Corset, properly fitted, absolutely insures cor
rectness of gown and presents that indefinable character which
lends special distinction to the figure.
That is the real test of any garment—how it looks in service,
how it wears and fits. La Vida Corsets meet this test, because
they represent the highest thought of the masters of corset de
signing, the latest style of features and , careful hand-workman
