TELLS NO. 1 OF HIS TROUBLES WITH WIFE NO. 2 C. T. Battelle Annoyed Former Spouse With Let ters, Sentenced for Fail ure to Provide TOTAL OF $7,200 OF UNPAID ALIMONY Defendant Read Dinner Menu Over the Phone to His Hungry Helpmate OAKLAND, Jan. 27.—Charles T. Bat telle, sentenced today to serve six months in the county jail for failure to provide for Mrs. Battelle No. 2, confided to his first wife his troubles with his second. Mrs. Battelle No. 1, the mother of four small children, forwarded to Probation Officer Ruess the letter Bat telle sent her from the county jail. It had the following introduction: Well, here I am where I imagined you've expected I'd land some day, namely, in jail. When on May 30 last at Fresno, Cal., I married Evelyn Mich* clson, age 20, I guess I got all that's coming to a man of 56 who tries matri mony for the second time with a kid. Evelyn has an elder sister, Stella, whose li-jnd I rejected for that of my present Wife Stella has left no stone unturned to slander my already (gauzy) charac ter, and her vituperation has certainly made the eight months of my married life the very liveliest of all lively times of my existence. I thought you and I had had ups and downs enough to last a lifetime, but our life together was a continuous honeymoon compared to our present." "The man has annoyed us by an in cesaant correspondence," wrote Mrs*. Battelle No. 1, "and this letter writing mania is considered by those who know him to be one of the most decided forms of his being unbalanced. Yesterday I received the letter which I consider the moat callous and abominable letter 1 ever read, and to prevent that mis guided girl from ever returning to this depraved man I am willing to speak for tlie first time of my own private life. The girl should be saved from doing what 1 did through a sense of duty, re maining with him until her life is wrecked. And I hope that he will be given the utmost punishment the law can provide. ' Mrs. Battelle No. 1 stated that her husband owed $7,200 in unpaid alimony to her, that lie was under a suspended jail sentence at Seattle for petty lar ceny, that he had failed completely to provide for her and their children and had recklessly pawned articles of value. She said he never had worked except to evolve schemes to get into debt. She believed him unbalanced. Battelle made a speech in Judge Har ris* court today, saying that he loved his present wife, Mrs. Evelyn Battelle, and wanted to provide for her. "1 will save you the stigma of a pen itentiary sentence," said Judge Harris, "but I will give you six months in the county jail to think it over. When you get out work will be rushing and you won't have much trouble finding some thing to do. I have no sympathy for a man who reads a dinner menu to his hungry wife over the telephone, as the evidence showed you did."

'BROADWAY' JONES MAKES GREAT HIT Critical Theater Goers Are Unit in Saying It Is Real Success OAKLAND. Jan. 27.—That "Broad way" Jones is George M. Cohan's best work was conceded after the first per formance of the latest Cohan comedy at the Macdonough theater this even ing. The popularity which the play recorded during its trip here was man ifested by a large number of critical theater goers anxious to see what Co han had done now, and the dashing action and sparkle of the piece sent them home amply satisfied. Cohan has put a punch, or a series of punches in his new effort. The play starts off with a rush and the dull moments are few from the time Jones enters accompanied by a full fledged "souse" to the drop o>* the closing cur tain. Thoughout the entire action of the play shines the Cohan simplicity and truth of character, and half the interest of the audience is aroused over the author's ability to clothe his char acter in realism as though they had been picked from the streets. "Broad way" Jones is made into a series of incidents that might have happened in many lives. The bubbling comedy of the production is infectuous. Cohan has taken tbe character of a young New York rounder, who finds himself at last at the end of his string with a load of heavy debts. After cogitating on his problem Jones finally reaches the conclusion that it would be cute to marry a very wealthy widow, old enough to have brought him into the world, j<nd they become engaged. "Broadway's" loyal friends come to the rescue, but Jones Is de termined and ho is just about lost when a very wealthy uncle providen tially passes away and leaves him a gum factory, disposing of the widow problem. Jones now has the inspira tion to sell the gum works and return to the gay life of ohi Broadway, but at the proper moment enters the hero ine and persuades him tbat the selling of the factory to the trust would throw out of employment many men in the little rural town, to which the action of the scene has been shifted, and rob it of its greatest industry. Jones, of course, relents, forgets his old Broad way longing and settles down to sober life In the town, incidentally marrying the heroine. • The comedy shaves close to sentimentality sometimes, but is saved by the work of n clever cast, in cluding Ralph Morgan, as "Broadway"; John Webster, Miss Grace Morrissey and others. CONTRACTOR PROPOSES BUILDING LARGE AREA One Thousand Acre* to Re Added to Richmond by Utilizing Garbage of San FranclMco RICHMOND, Jan. 27.—Dr. Charles R. Blake health officer of Richmond, was visited here again todr-y by B. Schmitt, the San Francisco contractor who has a proposition to fill in 1,000 acres of tide land along the outer edge of the Richmond inner harbor, using San Francisco garbage as part of the filling material. Schmitt promises to construct a dike all around the strip extending from Brooks island to Point Isabel and to guarantee that none of the garbage floats shoreward. As the site of the proposed fill is well out in the bay, no inconvenience would result to this city, and it would gain a large area of fac tory land. Under these circumstances Doctor Blake is im lined to favor the plan. It has been stated that the Southern Pacific is interested in the project and wants to run a line over the filled strip from its tracks near Stege. THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL. TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 1913. Fifty Minutes of Funny Vaudeville by Strong Aggregation OAKLAND, Jan. 27.—Four tiiousand people crowded into the Oakland Or pheum yesterday for the two opening performances of the long heralded mu sical sensation, "The Eternal Waltz." The elaborate production has been ad judged one of the best. The music touches a popular chord in every theater patron is a lover of good mu sic and dancing, and already the waltz, the chief theme, is being hummed and whistled. Running for GO minutes, as "The Eternal Waltz" does, it is an entire show in itself, an abbreviated musical comedy, carrying principals, baggage, scenery, show girls, chorus girls and instrumentalists. It was while the product was running as an evening's entertainment In it self, and at top prices in Vienna and London, that Martin Beck of the Or pheum circuit saW its possibilities as a vaudeville attraction and • gave the variety patrons a treat.. The act abounds in comedy, delightful singing and dancing and has a thread of plot running through it. The rest of the features are supplied in a stun ning prima donna, a pair of speedy comedians, a romantic tenor and pretty and graceful chorus girls, besides the personnel, handsome costuming, an augmented orchestra and general high class effects. "'The Eternal Waltz" fills the mission of supplying good musical comedy at popular prices. Miss Mabel Berra did not break her rule of captivating her audiences and her voice and b*eauty will not be for gotten soon. A really comical manner is the stock in trade of the comedian, Cyril Chadwick. Tbe principals are supported admirably and Arthur Weld's orchestra adds the finishing touch. Although the headliner usurped the interest of the crowds there was still a lot of enthusiasm left for Joe Mor ris and Charlie Allen, who appear as "the comedians with the pipes." "Obey," the comical trick mule with Wilson's comedy circus, furnished a variety of riotous laughter, and his partners, the clever trick ponies, pleased the young folks. George W. Barry and Maude Wol ford introduce some of their own song compositions, interspersed with breezy chatter, and the Gordon boys introduce something new and novel in hard, shoe dancing. For a novelty, the upside down and topsyturvy dancing of Louis Stone is a complete card. Oakland Brevities Dr. Allen F. Gillihan. health officer of Berke ley, will lecture on "The Development.

OPEN RESISTANCE TO VACCINATION John M. Foy and Mrs. New ton Cleveland Defy the Health Authorities Berkeley School Attendance After Emergency Vacation Far Below Normal BERKELEY, Jan. 27.—Open resist ance to the mandate of the state board of health, that no person should be ad mitted to the Berkeley public schools unless vaccinated upon the close today of the two weeks' emergency vacation, has developed in numerous cases. Bn consequence of this noncompliance with the health authorities' orders and of the nonattendance of pupils affected by va rioloid following vaccination, the at tendance today in the schools was probably 2,000 less than normal. After a conference yesterday with Dr. W. F. Snow, secretary of the state board of health, the city health officers notified all teachers and pupils through the school superintendent that no one would be admitted to school unless vaccinated successfully. The health officials also provided the teachers with lists of pupils who had appeared at the school" board rooms during the recent two weeks* vacation and had obtained from health board members individual certificates of vac cination. Hence no pupil was admitted today who had not been examined per sonally by a health official. Because of this action local physi cians who have vaccinated children feel aggrieved. Dr. H. N. Rowell. a former health board member, declared that al though he had given his patients cer tificates of vaccination these were dis regarded by the health board. Dr. Woodson Allen made similar as sertions, but Dr. J. J. Benton, health officer, only smiled. ACTIXG UNDER STATE LAW The health officials are acting under a state law and pursuing action ap proved or ordered by the state health board. They declare that the urgency of the situation requires that all pre cautions be taken. Hence, to be cer tain that the order of vaccination is fulfilled, the health board Is vaccinating teachers and pupils free of charge. Two prominent Berkleyans have of fered open resistance to the health hoard and school authorities. They are John M. Foy of 1728 Arch street and Mrs. Newton Cleaveland of 2312 Cedar street Both sent their children to the Hillside school today without having them vaccinated. Being mstructed to take their children from school until they had complied with the health or ders, both parents replied that they would not, so today the Foy and Cleaveland children attended school. The teachers advised Superintendent M. C. James, who notified Health Of ficer Benton. The teachers had been instructed in advance not to resort to force to compel obedience in such cases. "We will expect the health board to act," said School Director Herman I. Stern. "That body is supreme in this matter. It is up to them to order the Cleaveland and Foy children out of the schools, we believe. If their personally directed order is disobeyed the health board can call on the police for en forcement. If they choose to instruct the teachers to order the Foy and Cleaveland children out of school the teachers must obey, but they will not resort to force." One new case of smallpox became known today, simultaneously with the opening of school. The 3 year old child of James T. Preston, principal of the Franklin school, is the victim. Mr. Preston did not appear at the school this morning. The attack from which the child suffers is light, and its re covery is expected. John A. Wilson, though a school di rector, is taking the lead in the oppo sition to the health board, while his fellow directors. Stern and Briggs and Frank lleywood, are supporting the sanitary officers. Wilson declared that the health board was exceeding its authority. OFFERS TO TEST LAW Mrs. S. H. Strite of 2431 Dana street, wife of a m&nufacturer's agent, has offered to provide a case to test the law. She said her son Victor, 12 years old, was excluded Irom the McKinley school when he presented a card stat ing that his parents were "conscien tiously opposed to vaccination." Children turned out of school for nqt having the proper certificates of vac cination congregated this morning at the school board rooms. The crowd became so large that Chief of Police August Vollmer detailed Patrolmen H. P. Lee and J. B. Leonard to maintain order. Later Doctor Benton, the health officer; Dr. A. F. Gillihan, and others of the board of health, arrived and began their examinations. Those children properly vaccinated received certifi cates which will admit them to school. The others were either vaccinated or' turned away, to return with their par ents. The school board remained in session all day, ready to act if called upon. The few disputatious cases were referred to the health board for action. |X| Travel Luxury £r —ST) Santa Fe's new train to Los Angeles and San Diego The Angel From the Ferry 4:00 p. m. daily * It maintains its superiority by the ex cellence of its cuisine, equipment and courteous service.

HOME TELEPHONE MUST FIGHT CASE IN COURTS Oakland City Council Orders City Attorney to Bring Suit on Bonds OAKLAND, Jjyi. 27.—Suit against the Bay Cities Home Telephone com pany was authorized by resolution by the city counciJ today and B. F. Wool ner, city attorney, instructed to bring action \n the superior court to recover the $100,000 bond put up by the cor poration when a franchise was granted in Oakland in 1903. The suit will be filed on a clause in the franchise which provided that [ the company could not sell out to a competing corporation without permis sion from the council and that such action would result in the forfeiture of the bond. Mr. Woolner and Charles A. Beardsley, assistant city attorney, are preparing the papers and the action will probably be filed the latter part of the week. Mr. Woolner, following a request from the city council last week, filed a report today in part, as follows: "Whether or not it is possible to re cover on the bond given is, to a large extent, an open question. There have been some cases decided by the courts bearing more or less directly upon the questions of law involved in this mat ter, but there has been no adjudica tion by the courts of this state that we would regard as determinative of the issues herein involved. "In view, however, of the entire situ ation and in view of the law as we understand it to be expressed by de cisions in other states, we feel that the city will be able to establish a case against the telephone company and its bondsmen; and it is probable, if a recovery can be had at all, that it can be had for the full amount."
