JAILED ON CHARGE
BROUGHT BY HIS
FATHER IN LAW
A. B. Ralston, Former Agent
for Thayer Estate, Ac
cused of Obtaining
Money Falsely
WIFE ABOUT TO
SUE FOR DIVORCE
"I Tried to Make a Man of
Him," She Says of For
* mer Convict
OAKLAND, Feb. IS. —Albert B. Ral
ston, scion of a well known Oakland
family and a prominent young , man
about town, was arrested this morn
ing- on the complaint of Clarence L».
HobbS, 5835 Dover street, his father
in law, on a charge of obtaining- money
under false pretenses. Ralston, who
until recently was agent for the Thayer
estate, is accused of obtaining $900 on
the count for which he was arrested,
hut Hobbs said today that the total
amount procured from him by Ral
ston would total $2,500.
Ralston served two years in San
Quentin for forgery. After his re
lease he became agent for the Thayer
estate and his arrest today comes as
the climax to a eerles of alleged crim
inal acts. To avoid arrest he persuaded
Hobbs to make good a shortage.
llobbs, who is a railway mail clerk
and for the last 23 years has been on
the run between Oakland and Ogden,
placed a mortgage on his Dover street
home, for $900 and turned the money
over to Ralston to pay back to the
Thayer estate.
PLACED U.VDEK SURVEILLANCE
This transaction took place last June
right months after Ralston had mar-
Miss Dawn llobbs, the daughter
of Hobhs. About that time Ralston,
v,hn had been made agent of the
Thayer building at Fourteenth and Jef
ferson streets, a position now held by
his father, was accused of being $1,700
short i:i his accounts. Uβ was not
arrested but was placed under the sur
veillance of detectives. Ralston main
tains the shortage was due to faulty
bookkeeping and not to criminal intent.
Shortly after Ralston obtained $900
from his father In law he asked for an
additional sum of $900, which was
riven him. He said that he intended
his former employers, the Thay
er estate, for false imprisonment, and
Hobbs. believing that Ralston had been
arrested, gave him the additional
money by further mortgaging his prop
erty.
M>l (,HT MOXEY FOR BOND
"I have a good case against the
r estate," Ralston said, accord
ing to Hobbs, "and I need this money
for a bond."
N'n suit, however, was filed.
Kaiston. while employed as agent of
the TiiHVT estate, had obtained a dep- i
my sheriffs badge from Sheriff Frank
because he assumed the duties
of a night watchman at the Thayer
building.
Shortly after his trouble with his
former employers he went to Sacra
mento and is alleged to have passed a
is cheek for $200 upon a deputy
In the sheriff's office at Sacramento.
When tins was returned with the
■words "No funds,** Ralston is accused
of forging the name of his father in
law to a check to make it good.
Kalston's wife said today that she
had done all she could to make a
man out of him and intended to sue
for a divorce. She is his second wife,
the first wife obtaining A divorce when
he was sent to San Quentin five years
aero for forgery.
HOXEYMOON CUT SHORT
Kalston was arrested August 13, 1907.
for passing a worthless check for $230
upon K. If. Morris as first payment
upon an automobile. Ralston left with
his wife on a honeymoon trip in
thf> machine. When the forgery was
discovered inspectors were put on his
trail and the honeymoon was cut short.
flalston was , convicted on.this charge
and sentenced to San Quentin for two
years. He obtained his release in
lMt. He is SI years old.
The police say that Ralston is a
typical confidence man. He makes a
good appearance and is a convincing
talker. That he has left a trail of
spurious checks over the greater part
of the state was the statement today
of Inspector Kyle. Before he was ar
rested a full investigation was made
o< the Hobbs charge and the authori
ties say they have a strong case.
WOtJUD HAY;: FORGIYKV HIM
"I did all I could," said Mrs. Ralston
today. "I did not know that Albert
had been In prison when I was mar
ried to him, but I would have forgiven
him that if he had kept straight. But
he is crooked and I don't see what else
can be done. T shall sue for a separa
tion right away.
"About two months ago, when we
wore living at the Continental hotel in
Francisco, he attempted to kill me
with a butcher knife. He said he had
decided to commit suicide, but when he
killed himself he would take me with
him. My screams attracted friends in
an adjoining apartment and my life
waa saved. When he procured the
money from my father, he said he had
!iis life insured and that the insurance
would fully cover the amount. , This
was not true. On another occasion
he borrowed , $100 from a friend of my
father. lie has been guilty in many
other wayF."

This Shampoo Helps
to Dry the Hair
"It may sound paradoxical to say
that shampooing helps dry the hair,"
writes Mac Martyn, in the New York
Star, "but it is a fact that women
using canthrox in cleansing the hair
and scalp find their tresses dry quicker
than when shampoo mixtures arc*
used. Aside from this, it leaves the
scalp in a vigorous" condition and
gives the hair its natural glossy ap
pearance.
'"Next time you wash your head try
this simple recipe: Dissolve a tea
spoonful of canthrox in a teacup of
hot water. Pour on the head and rub
briskly until the scalp is thoroughly
massaged,- then rinse well.
"Canthrox costs but a trifle, but the
only certain way to get it pure is to
buy an original package."

GIANT VETERINARIAN
WHIPS TWO COLLEAGUES
Alaiueda Horseman Calls Ipon Oakland
Doctor and Ends With Flntle
Encounter
OAKLAND, Feb. 13.—Dr. R. A. Archi
bald, city veterinarian and meat In
spector, and Dr. J. J. Haggerty, his as
sistant, fell out today with It. J. a.
Hill, a horesman and veterinarian of
Alameda, and in the contest which fol
lowed Drs. Archibald and Haggerty are
said to have been somewhat disfigured,
while Hill emerged unscathed.
Doctor Hill, who is president of the
8010 club, an organization composed of
Spanish-American war veterans, and is
more than six feet in height, is said
to have had no trouble in disposing in
summary fashion of his opponents.
Hill went into the office of Archibald
at Twenty-sixth • and Webster streets
this morning. Hill is accused of saying
that he would secure most of Archi
bald's private veterinary work, and at
this Archibald and Haggerty took um
brage and the three fell to it with their
fists.
Trouble has been brewing for some
time between Archibald and Hill, who
are business rivals. Hill talked freely
of the row, but Archibald had nothing
to say.
