SWIMMER OF HAWAIIA HAS RIVAL 18 Month Old Ruth Graham, Who Arrived Today, Cham pion Kid Swimmer Duke Kalianamoku would hardly have been noticed if he had stepped aboard |the army transport Sherman this morning. Not because the army doesn't appreciate Duke's skill as a Swimmer, but because Miss Ruth Gra ham was aboard. Ruth is the 18 niifntli old daughter of Captain and Mrs. C. D. Graham of the army med i«al corps, and Ruth Is the champion kid swimmer of Waikiki. Tiw Grahams have been stationed at Kort Shafter, Honolulu, and Baby Ktith lias spent most of her brief life on the beach at Waikiki. She was at home in the water before she could walk, and learned to crawl on the beach and do the Australian crawl in the water about the same time. Ruth could swim a few strokes, her mother says, before she could walk, and can swim much faster now than she can toddle. Ruth does all her bathing in deep water, and she goes into it in the most ap proved fashion, by diving. "You may not believe it to look at her," her proud father declared, "but tiiat kid can really swim. She loves it. She doesn't make much headway, but she has picked up three different strokes, and there never was a baby seal more at home in the water. It has been fine for her health. She never ails, but Is never really happy out of the water." The Grahams have a photographic ifi'ord of Ruth from cradle days, and among the earliest pictures the young lady appears ln a swimming suit. Ruth was the envy of all the kids on the Sherman, but the worship didn't go to her head. "She doesn't care about praise," said her mother. "All Ruth wants Is a chance to swim."

Leased Property Not Attachable for Debt When a cripple leases an automobile to gain his living the machine is not subject to attachments for debts, ac mording to a decision of Justice of the Peace Treadwell today in a suit by John N. Lofstad against J. J. McDon ald to collect $240. McDonald uses an automobile to travel through the country selling goods. Judge Tread well declared that the attachment by the sheriff was illegal and ordered the machine restored to McDonald. PILOTS AN AEROPLANE WHILE DEAD AT WHEEL No parallel can be found In the history of aviation for the tragedy which occurred at the Johannlstal flying ground a few days ago, when Doctor Ringer died at the wheel of his aeroplane, which remained for 10 minutes more ln the air before it fell. Before he made his ascent at 6:30 in the morning Doctor Ringer com plained of feeling ill, but neverthe less he rose. When his monoplane had reached a height of about 900 feet and was circling around the fly ing ground Doctor Ringer had a sud den heart seizure and died apparently instantaneously. His hands remained grasping the steering gear while the monoplane continued to ascend. The spectators below noticed noth ing unusual, and the monoplane con tinued its steady flight. A sudden gust of wind changed the position of the machine, and the weight of the aviator's body was thrown over the steering wheel. The loss of balance gave it an almost vertical position, and It fell. Doctor Ringer's hands were still clasping the wheel, and his eyes had an expression of unspeakable anguish. The postmortem examination proved that he had died fully 10 minutes be fore the fall of the monoplane Saxony to Stamp Out Alien Words While the use of forcible words Is rteadily increasing among Germans, the government of Saxony has taken measures to stamp out, as far as pos sible, all words of alien origin. In an > du'-atlon bill passed by the Saxon landtag last year it was enacted that purely German substitutes are to be u.»ed in schools for the "fremden ■*orter" (foreign words), "which have hitherto been officially recognised. MISS NIELSEN WILL BE HEARD TONIGHT IN FAVORITE SONG Miss Alice Nielsen Building Trades Men Threaten Strike on Oakland City Hall Trouble Over Metal Range Hood in Jail Kitchen Causes Row Be tween Unions and City Dads The Building Trades council of Oakland has locked horns with the city administration, and unless the city officials consent to having a metal hood over the gas ranges in the city jail installed by union work men, no union men will be allowed to work in completing the new city hall. When the present jail, which is temporary, was finished, mechanics among the jail employes Installed the metal hood over the gas ranges In the cooking department of the prison. The Building Trades council officials on discovering that the hood had not been erected by union workmen, de manded that the hood be torn out and replaced by union men. Here's the Latest, A Sunday Manager We have had pinch hitters and pinch pitchers and one pinch presi dent, but It remains for Jimmy Austin, the Cleveland lad and third sacker of the Browns, to pull down the unique role of being Sunday manager. Yes, sir, every Sunday the reins of official power have rested in Austin's hands, since 3ranch Rickey became, manager, and thereby hangs a tale. Branch Rickey, the new man at the helm of the St. Louis tribe, is opposed to having anything to do with Sun day baseball. Branch wouldn't in dulge in it as a player, and now as a manager he shies away from Sunday management. So, on the first day of every week. Rickey has abdicated and Jeems Austin took a fling at the Job of manager. Jim's a mighty good pinch manager, too. Clock Numbers Run From Zero to 12 In the tower of the St. Lazare rail way terminus. Paris, the first mon ster pyblic clock keeping time in accordance with the new French com putation has just been unveiled. The peculiarity of this timepiece is that it has two separate dials, which change places automatically on the strokes of midnight and midday. The first is numbered from zero to twelve, the second from thirteen to twenty four. Five minutes before midnight will be "five minutes to twenty-four," and five minutes after midnight, "five minutes past zero." Worker Falls 40 Feet; Caught by Companion Death was cheated by Charles Lewis when he caught a fellow work man in his arms after the latter had fallen 4 0 feet or more down the big exhaust pipe in the Philadelphia city hall. C. F. Rapp fell from his rigger's seat on a level with the fifth floor. Lewis in a rigger's seat on a level with the third floor heard his com rade's cry, braced himself and caught Rapp. The two almost fell from Lewis' seat to plunge to death at the foot of the shaft, but by a supreme effort Lewis held their position. FINED; HE FAILED TO RESPECT GIRL'S DOG On the proposition that a girl's dog should be respected as much as the girl herself, a resident of Philadelphia was fined by a justice of the peace. In a fight between dogs that result ed inlmlcably—yes, "very lnlmlcably," the girl said—to the interests of her pet, James Burns took the part of his own pet against Miss Mary O'Connor's possession. Miss O'Connor appeared before Squire Buckland with the final score of the engagement. The squire fined Burns for talking too vocifer ously, and admonished him to betnore gallant in the future. CARDINAL SPENDS LIFE ON ASTRONOMICAL BOOK Cardinal Mazzl, archbishop of Pisa, who is one of the greatest astrono mers of the day, has completed a vast astronomical work, on which he has spent a lifetime of labor. In his book the cardinal propounds wholly novel theories with regard to the formation of nebulae, sun spots and the atmospheric conditions on the planets. The manuscript has been sub mitted for examination by the papal authorities prior to publication. THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1913. Several Appearances Sched uled During Visit of Cali fornia Songbird Miss Alice Nielsen, California's famous prima donna, who has won additional laurels as a member of the Metropolitan Opera company of New York, arrived in San Francisco this morning for a series of concerts at Knights of Columbus auditorium, the first one of which will be given this evening. At the opening concert Miss Nielsen will sing several old favor ites, including "Kathleen Mavour neen." "Believe Me, If All Those Kn dearing Young Charms" and "The Last Rose of Summer,' with Maestro Charles Strony as the accompanist.

Miss Nielsen will sing at the Mac donough theater in Oakland Thursday evening, giving her farewell concert in this city Friday evening. VISITS TAILOR AT 1 A.M.; ARRESTED Skepticism of Policeman Re sults in Optimistic Young Man Going to Jail "That sign says this place closes at 1 o'clock on Saturdays: I guess that guy doesn't believe it," said Police man Ruppert as he watched a young man overcoming the work of a lock smith on a basement door in New York. "I'll wait until he discovers his error." Ruppert's vigil ended 10 minutes later, at 1 a. m., for the same young man, or one whose similarity ln fea ture would deceive his best friends, appeared at the window of the hall on the third floor, tossed up the sash and then stepped out to a coping 10 feet long and eight Inches deep. A few steps farther went the young man to another window, which slid up, and then the energetic visitor en tered the loft of J. Samuel & Bros, clothing shop. Ruppert followed in. He found the elevator had borne the young man to the third floor. Pulling it down, he made the ascent and got out on the coping just as the Samuels' caller emerged from the loft with a suit of clothes. That didn't please the young man, for he poised himself for a leap to the street, which was interrupted, for the policeman grabbed him. The man fought and tried to free himself, an effort that almost precipitated both to the sidewalk. At the police station the young man. Michael Gold, was charged with grand larceny. AUSTRIA'S NEW SHIPS CARRY BIG CANNONS Austria's newest dreadnoughts are to be fitted with guns of extraordi nary weight and capacity. Each ship will carry 10 of these monster can non ln five double turrets, planned to enable the whole force to fire simultaneous broadsides. The guns will have a length exceeding 51 feet and a weight of 70 tons. Their probable range is being kept a secret. With their heavy armor plated decks and special cannon for shooting at aeroifanes and airships, the projected dreadnoughts will be armed against the new terrors from the air. Their total displacement is estimated at 25,000 tons. $150 DIAMOND FOUND IN A DUCK'S CROP James G. McLaughlin, who lives ln West Orange, N. J., was glad that he killed a large drake for his dinner In stead of the chicken which his mother favored. In preparing the bird for the table McLaughlin found a small white stone ln its crop. He washed it and discov ered it was a diamond weighing about a carat. He took It to a jeweler, who told him it was worth about $150. Mc-Laughlin, who Is employed ln a Wall street bank, was formerly con nected with the theatrical company of Rob#?t, B. Mantell, but not as a press agent. THIEVES CHLOROFORM THREE AND LOOT HOME Burglars visited the room of Fred Dolle, in Detroit, and stole Jewelry valued at $200 and escaped without disturbing the slumbers of either Dolle, his wife or 3 year old son. From investigations- made by the po lice they believe the burglars chloro formed the sleepers and then took their time ln ransacking the room. Mrs. Dolle, the first to awaken, was greatly surprised to find everything ln the room turned topsyturvy and more surprised to find that her diamond earrings she vas wearing when she went to bed were missing. 381 PIECES OF SOAP, 300 APRONS, LEFT BY BEGGAR There were many surprises after the funeral of Eliza Hoenig in Fleet wood, Pa., when an inventory was made of her possessions.

In general, he found, the water is free from impurity. 'SISSAGE' HUNGER THIEF'S DOWNFALL Took Farmer's Wallet, but Loses When Frankfurter Trail Is Followed An Insatiable appetite for frank furters led to the arrest in Minne apolis of John O'Connor of numerous addresses, and the placing against him of a charge of grand larceny.

Women Spend Great Sums Dressing Dogs It is common now for the London woman of fashion to spend more on her pet dog annually than a mechanic earns in the same period to keep a family on. There is a canine out fitting establishment near Plcadilly where you may learn much about this special form of extravagance and where anything from $100 to $2,500 may be spent on the purchase of some peculiar toy pet. The ani mal Is provided with fancy overcoats, which change according to fashion. Some are made of sealskin at a cost of $25, and another $5 or two may be needed for one that Is trimmed with ermine. One animal has boots made of rubber, tanned pigskin, or patent leather, costing from $2.50 to $25 a set. Recently an order was given for diamonds that amounted to $4,000. BIG PROFITS WHALING ON AFRICAN COAST The romance of whaling days every one supposed had departed long ago. But a new field for whaling has been found, and profits up to 400 per cent a year have been made. Three years ago the presence of many whales was noted off the west ern coast of Africa. The next year a Norwegian company established itself at Cap Lopez, with a factory ship of 6,000 tons and two hunting ships of 180 tons each. Meanwhile a Portu guese company set up a station not far away. Last year a number of companies were at work in the neighborhood and the smallest profit reported was 20 per cent. Most of them made 100 per cent, and one even 400. The principal products are oil wcrth $120 a ton, the flesh after the oil is extracted, which brings $40 a ton, and the whalebone, the price of which has fallen from $3.50 to $1.20 a pound. This year whalers have flocked to the region from all over the world. There are 30 companies working there, with 90 hunting ships. WEE MOUSE ARCHITECT USES BLUE PRINT PLAN ,a - esshrdlucmfwypvbgkqjetaoin When the janitor in the offices of the Iron River offices of the United Steel corporation in Iron 'ountain, Wash., dumped the earth from a flow er pot to discover why the plant had withered, a mouse's nest fell to the floor. The parent mouse had bur rowed to the bottom of the Jar and built a house of bits of blueprint chewed from the maps in the office. A roof had been built, the janitor says, that shed the water poured ln the pot to moisten the plant. He affirms the rodent used the blueprint as a plan of construction, so cleverly was tho domicile built. Women Too Emotional for Law? Mere Men Differ on the Question Are women too emotional for the law? Professor William Carey Jones, dean of the law school of the University of California, says they are. Judge and attorneys of San Francisco, so far as agreement with Professor Jones' views are con cerned, are like pretty girls and the kissing question—some do, some don't. Professor Jones' own legal training shows in the qualifying clause "as a rule," according to Attorney George Ford, one of those interviewed yesterday by The Call. What some of the mere men lawyers think, or, rather, what they say, is given herewith. PROF. JONES WRONG, W. P. CAUBU ASSERTS Assistant District Attorney W. P. Caaba—l don't think that Professor Jones has the right idea. If you ever heard the women making speeches during the Judge Weller recall movement, presenting facts logically and forcibly In the face of jeers, you would say that emotion was an asset and not a failing. And they had no training for the law. So far as actual cases in the police courts, there has been none as yet. Just how it would work out would be interesting. WOMEN COULD EQUAL MEN AT LAW--CHOYNSKI A t tome y Herbert Choynskt — I have never seen but one woman lawyer In action. They are able to hold their own in other affairs and should be as good at law, granted legal ability. It would not require much of a woman to be as good as most of the men lawyers I come in contact with. I was opposed by a woman lawyer ln a case once, but, instead of presenting legal facts and questions, she was relying on courtesy, regardless of the fact that we were combating each other in a professional way. TOO MUCH HEAVY WORK, ROCHE THINKS Attorney Theodore J. Roche, Po lice Commissioner—My experience with women lawyers has been ex tremely limited. I have no doubt in my mind that many women are men. tally capable to cope with the best legal talent that men can produce, but, apart from the question of emotion, there is the problem of physical strain which courtroom work Involves. I know men who are making big money in their of fices who have not the physical force necessary for 24 hours' work Victims of Cupid Arrive From Orient on Transport Sherman Big Troopship Carries Full Comple ment of Cabin Passengers and Many Enlisted Men The army transport Sherman, Cap tain Hall, which arrived early this morning from Manila, did not dock until 10 o'clock a. m. on account of the tide. The vessel brought a full complement of cabin passengers. In the troop quarters were 399 casuals, 38 enlisted men of the United States navy, 27 enlisted men Of the marine corps, 39 military prisoners and 19 civilians. The ranking officer was Brigadier General C. fi. Roberts, re tired. Captain Mark L, Bristol, U. S. ( N., who was in command of the. I. S. S. Albany, returned on the Sherman. Among the passengers was Miss Avis Daugherty, who will be mar ried to Lieutenant Charles Dodge of the Philippine constabulary. Another victim of Cupid among the troopship's passengers was Lieuten ant Isaac Spalding, who is on his way to Oklahoma to marry Miss Alice Tripp. Mrs. P. L. Minnegerode, wife of Lieutenant Fltzhugh Lee Minnegerode of the Eighth United States infantry, was also on the ship. Mrs. Minne gerode was Miss Ethel O'Brien of Alameda and is well known In local society. VICTORIAN ASSEMBLY REAFFIRMS ITS LOYALTY The Victorian legislative assembly in Melbourne has unanimously carried a motion by Mr. Watts, the premier, "emphatically condemning the dis loyal utterance" of Mr. Webber, a labor member and mayor of Rich mond. Mr. Webber had taken the king's name off a toast list because, as he said, he himself was a repub lican. The resolution reaffirmed the assembly's unswerving loyalty to monarchial Institutions. No further action Is deemed desir able, in view of Mr. Webber's youth and inexperience, though two mem bers expressed a wish that Mr. Web ber would make some expression of regret. Public opinion is, however, unwilling to magnify the incident above its proper value, or to allow Mr. Webber the honors of "martyr dom."

Women are almost too emo tional to cope with criminal cases, and. ln fact, I doubt whether women, as a rule, can ever argue a case ta court successfully. in court. A grinding, gruelling criminal case requires all the strength of the strongest. "PLACE FOR WOMAN IS IN THE HOME"—ACH Attorney Henry Ach—Woman's place or sphere is the home. As to women generally in the practice of law, both as to matters in office and In the trial of causes ln court, the natural and beautiful reticence In woman, in my judgment, de stroys the needed capacity for the proper handling of another's inter ests, either in business or in court.

However, with regard to criminal practice, a man or woman in trouble probably would turn to a man to defend them In the courts. NOT TOO EMOTIONAL, L F. BYINGTON THINKS Former District Attorney Lewis F. Bylngton—During the time I was district attorney no woman appeared in court as counsel. There were women practicing, but the criminal courts did not appeal to them. I think women are capable of doing work in all professional lines, and I don't think her emo tions would affect her power to make an argument on a point of law or fact. 1 think women would have natural ability to present a case either to a court or to a jury. The training of the law tends to cause any one to lose emotional strength, even if they possessed it originally. SULLIVAN WELCOMES WOMEN AS PLEADERS Police Judge John J. Sullivan—l am a staunch believer that more women should enter the legal pro fession. Comparatively few women are practicing law, and I believe more would enter the field If con ditions were changed. But the law, unfortunately, can not be changed just to admit women lawyers. I disagree with Professor Jones when he declared women too emotional to argue a case intelligently to a jury. I have seen women argue a case in a slow, careful and deliber ate manner. Some may advance the theory that the salacious testi mony drawn out in the criminal courts is a bar to women attoneys. It is no more so than to compel women to testify in such cases. Nothing can be done toward grant ing women special privileges In the criminal departments. Stork Near Woman Is Saved From Cell > The nearness of the stork saved Mrs. Marshall W. Anderson from a term in prison when she came before Judge Donahue in Oakland this morn ing.

MEAT CAUSE OF KIDNEY TROUBLE Take Salts to Flush Kidneys if Back Hurts or Bladder Bothers If you must have your meat every day. eat it, hut flush your kidneys with salts occasionally, says a noted authority, who tells us that meat forms uric acid, which almost paralyzes the kidneys in their efforts to expel it from the blood.
