Portola Tour Contestants, in

The prospect of a real, live, active

started regular district meetings.
Men win votes by eloquent lan
guage at big mass meetings, but with
true feminine intuition the girl can
didates seek to charm admirers into
piling votes in their direction by
dances instead of by speeches. Many
dances have been arranged by the
candidates. Miss Whelan has ar
ranged for two, one tomorrow even

October 4, both at Hale's hall.

CAMINETTI-DIGGS GIRLS
HELD; CLUBWOMEN DIFFER
ON JUSTICE OF ORDER
San Francisco Leaders Differ in Opinions, Some
Thinking Young' Women Have Been Punished
Enough and Should Not Be Restrained by
Juvenile Court—Capital City Committee Stands
4 to 3 to Sentence the Elopement Victims
By a vote of four to three, members of the probation committee of
the juvenile court of Sacramento decided yesterday that Marsha War
rington and Lola Norris, the girls involved in the Diggs-Caminetti cases,
should appear before them and be placed under restriction.
There was discussion of the mat
ter, Mrs. Sheehan ,one member of
the committee, declaring that the
girls had been sufficiently punished,
while Mrs. Moreland, wife of the
Episcopal bishop of the diocese of
Sacramento, said that the same treat
ment should be given to these offend
ers as to other girls who had com
mitted offenses.
Clubwomen of San Francisco are
not agreed on the point any more
than the Sacramento probation com
mittee, and some of their opinions
are given herewith.
COURT NO RIGHTS IN
CASE—MRS. CORNWALL
Mrs. Arthur Cornwall of the
California club:
"They have been punished
enough. They not only have been
punished, but they will be.
'As to their laughing and chat
ting with their friends on the
streets—if they can find friends
and can smile after the exper
iences they have been through
with—for God's sake let them
do it. Their disgrace will follow
them all their lives and they will
never be able to escape lt.
"Tou should try once to get
some woman with the least little
blot on her past into a woman's
club, and see how she is regarded
and the experiences she lias. Her
story will follow' her—she can
never get away from it.
"I don't think the juvenile
court lias any right to continue
to act in this matter. I think
there is getting to be too much
interference ln people's private
lives, anyway. It is going just a
little too far."
MRS. BELL UPHOLDS
SACRAMENTO RULING
Mrs. Mnry C. Bell, former presi
dent of Juvenile Protective asso
ciation :
'T agree with the majority of
the committee in Sacramento. I
reaJly think that in this entire
case we should not show any par
tiality. It is not fair to put the
whole burden of punishment for
going wrong or doing wrong on
the tired workingman's family.
"Well to do girls who trans
gress are really, to my mind,
more reprehensible and more de
serving of punishment than the
poorer girls. The latter have so
little of brightness or beauty in
their lives. They have unattract
ive, uncomfortable homes and
surroundings. But when a girl
who has so much to make life
a happy thing for her, deliber
ately goes against the laws of all
sorts she should get her due of
whatever legal or social punish
ment is to be meted out."
GIRLS ARE PUNISHED
ENOUGH—MRS. SEATON
Mrs. Btla M. Sexton, writer and
clubwoman —"It is hard to say
what should be done in the case
of those girls, but I hardly think
they need court interference. 1
think they have been punished
enough, but if they have not re
pented nor shown a chastened
spirit, something should be done.
"It should he rather by the dis
approval and silent rebuke of
their friends than by legal means.
"lf they are really repentant
they should be met half way and
given every touch of the helping
liand.
"If they are giddy, 'flirty' and
feeling themselves heroines, the> r
should be left alone by their
friends and by society at large.
Social ostracism is, after all, the
most powerful and effective pun
ishment that can be given, and
particularly to a woman.
"If these girls, of whom I be
lieve Marsha Warrington is much
the worst, are not sorry for what
they have done and do not feel
their disgrace, the action of the
juvenile court will do no good for
thorn. It would certainly be a
mistake to my mind to send them
to any institution. 1 do not be
lieve in reform institutions for
girls of that type."

MARSHA AND LOLA
MUST FACE COURT
After Bitter Argument Proba
tion Committee Votes 4 to
3 to Try Girl Elopers
SACRAMENTO. Sept. 26.—Marsha
Warrington and Lola Norrls must ap
pear before the probation committee
of the juvenile court here Monday to
face ( barges of delinquency, based on
their elopement to Reno, which re
sulted in the recent conviction of
Maury I. Diggs and F. Drew Caminetti
on charges of violating the Mann
white slave act. After a heated argu
ment yesterday the probation commit
tee, by a vote of 4 to 3, decided that
an example Phould be made of the
girls.
Three members of the committee
made strong opposition, pleading and
arguing that the girls and their
parents have suffered enough through
the publicity and odium of the recent
trials. Mrs. William Hall Moreland,
wife of Bishop Moreland of the Epis
copal diocese of Sacramento, led the
argument to hold the girls to answer.
"It is the duty of the court to pro
tect and warn other girls," she said.
E. J. Carragher, city commissioner
of education and member of the com
mittee, strongly backed Mrs. More
land's stand, saying:
"There should not be two stand
ards, one for the rich and those who
have friends and pull, and another
for those who have not."
Those voting to hold the girls for
court were Mrs. William Hall More
land, Mrs. J. A. McKee, E. J. Gallagher
and Chairman . Albert Bonnheim.
Those voting to acquit the girls were
Arthur Miller, Mr?. T. W. Sheehan
and Mrs. John T. Greene.
MORE TIME FOR APPEALS
Counsel for Maury I. Diggs and F.
Drew Caminetti want 20 days more in
which to perfect appeals.
The 10 days' stay of sentence grant
ed by Judge William C. Van Fleet
expires tomorrow.
Diggs and Caminetti, who were
convicted of violating the Mann white
slave traffic act in the trip to Reno,
Nev., with two Sacramento girls, were
sentenced to two years and eighteen
months' imprisonment, respectively.
The government prosecutors will
make no objection to an extension of
the stay of sentence.

"New Retail Center" Market at Fifth
Bargemen Shocked in
Live Wire Contact
But for the brevity of the contact
between a steel boom and a live wire,
five men at work on Crowley's der
rick barge No. 55 would have been
electrocuted last evening at Green
brae. As it was, they were all
knocked insensible and when they ar
rived here this morning were still
suffering from tho effects of the
shock.
The barge had been employed for
several days taking heavy boilers
out of a discarded brickyard. The
last, a 20 ton affair, was hoisted up
and swung over the barge. Then
everybody's light went out. The deck
of the barge was wet. It is sup
posed that the steel boom touched a
loaded power wire. The wet deck
and the metal freight and machinery
gave the "juice" a free pass all over
the boat and everybody got a jolt.
SAILOR FALLS FROM
TOPSAIL YARD IN GALE
John Shakles, a seaman on the
British ship British Yeoman, which

gale. His body struck the main
yard. This broke his fall and he will
recover.

Adler Counsel for
Himself in Trial
On Forgery Charge
Defendant Shows Skill in Examining
Prospective Jurors in the
Courtroom
The unusual spectacle of the dr--
I
fendant appearing as his own counsel
was seen today in Superior Judge
Lawlor's court when Charles Adler,
accused of forgery, questioned the
jurors wb.o are to decide his fate.
Adler is the man who, two and a
half years ago, attempted to shoot
Superior Judge J. K. Trabucco of
Mariposa county because the magis
trate decided against him in a civil
suit. He was found not guilty of in
sanity at that time, and Trabucco re
fused to prosecute him.
Recently Adler was arrested on »
charge of forging signatures to 1.000
shares of the International Music Roll
company.
Adler proved himself a clever exam
iner of jurors, and is confident that he
will acquit himself through his own
efforts.
