ADVISES WIFE TO
SHOOT MATE—IF
Judge Tappan Urges Oakland
Woman to Practice to Meet
Threats
OAKLAND. Aug. s—Judge Tappan,
sitting for Police Judge Samuels, to
day advised Mrs. Minnie Rowe. 1523
Alice street, to learn how to use a
gun and then not hesitate to make her
husband. John Rowe. whom she
charged with threatening her life, toe
the mark.
"I advise you to get a shotgun and
fill it full of bnokshot." Judge Tappan
said from the b»»nch. "and if you have
reason to belteue that this man is
going to shoot you. kill him first. If
more wives would shoot their husbands
Instead of enduring their abuse, it
would be good for society. '
Mrs. Rowe told Judge Tappan that
she could not handle a revolver or
shotgun.
Weil, begin practicing right away,
then." said Judge Tappan. "I'm not
counseling you to commit murder, but
I believe women ought to resist the
brutal actions of their husbands and
that a shotgun is the best means of
doing this."
Rowe's bond was placed at $1,500 to
keep the peace.
Mrs. Carr, on her homeward voyage.
John McMullln. her brother, remains in

absence of the American flag in many
ports, he said:
' Tn every port you see the Japanese
flag, and it makes us feel that we here
had better get busy and see that Wash- j
ington turns over and makes a move for
a merchant marine.
'We are gofng to he disappointed :n !
the results of the Panama canal, be- j
cause our government has been blind j
to its benefits. Other countries have j

and have established their commercial i
and banking relations. Tt is up to us to j
fight for business with other countries. ■
for we will have to. The business is ]
not going to come to us."
