THE WENATCHEE DAILY "WORLD, WENATCHEE. WASHINGTON, SATURDAY, JANUARY 8 1910.
WIFE DIVORCES THE
GOT TO LOOK ON HIM AS BRUTE
RATHER THAN HUMAN, SHE
TESTIFIES— A PAY STREAK
That masquradlng as the "monkey
man" had gradually changed her hus
band into a brute was the charge
made by the wife yesterday against
her husband. Harry L. Blitz, who be
came a landmark on the exposition
grounds last summer through his an
tics. Judge pro tempore R. H. Lin
dsay, of the superior court, after
listening to the evidence granted a de
cree of divorce, $22.50 alimony, and
charged the court costs to the hus
band. Blitz.it is said, is now in Port
land earning $100 per month in front
of one of the cheap theatres, as a
business getter. He was not present
at yesterday's trial, but was repre
sented by an attorney.
The couple were married Septemb
er 10, 1900.and have one child, a 6-
year-old son. Mrs. Blitz told the
court that her husband had been in
the "monkey" business for many
years, and that he had grown more
brutal in his attitude in the home
with the passage of time.
"He called me vile names." said
the wife, "burned and tore my cloth
ing, threatened to kill me, and treat
ed me with the greatest cruelty. I
grew to regard him more as a brute
than as a husband, and lost my love
for him through his actions."
Blitz is said to have received $1. r >o
per week during the Alaska-Yukon-
Pacific exposition, and put in eight
hours a day in front of one of the
Pay Streak shows, bedecked in pro
per barbarian apparel, a blackened
face, several gee strings and armlets
and leglets and earrings, and a most
ferociously inane expression. He
blinked at the crowds like a poulter
pigeon, and the burden of his song
" Ah-a-a-a-a-ah! Haba-haba-haba
Kight hours of this sort of vocal
work every day left his mental fac
ulties in abeyance, his wife said,
and gave him a natural expression
that fitted his part. There were ex
tensive arguments In the crowd*
that faced him as to whether he was
really a rip-roaring Shibatnu from
Bendizzer, as represented, or a ne
Yesterday it developed that he was
an ordinary white person who had
been cruel to his wife.
FINES WERE NOT ITEMIZED
Treasurer's Report Includes Many
Fines in Different Items—Money
AH Right in Totals.
The report of County Treasurer C.
A. Battles, as published in yesterday's
issue was not itemized enough to
show the exact amount of money re
ceived for fines, although the total
amount is all accounted for in the two
items of fines and clerk's fees, some
details in bookkeeping being facili
tated thereby. Also there are still
some December collections to be
One fine alone, that of Henry Ellis,
Cashmere, amounted to $250; an
other, that of Carter of Chiwaukum,
amounted to $2 00 and costs. R. A.
Brown, of Monitor, naid $25 and
costs. There were numerous other
amounts all included in the item of
clerk's fees that will be accounted
for in fuller detail when the office has
its records made up for final filing.
GOOD ATTENDANCE TODAY IN
COMMERCIAL CLUB ROOMS—
MUCH INTEREST SHOWN IN
The regular monthly meeting of
the Wenatchee auxiliary of the Che
lan County Horticultural society was
held today in the commercial club
rooms and was attended by over a
hundred interested growers and busi
ness men, who gave their undivided
attention to the program, showing
that the efforts of the society are well
The morning session was taken
jup by George H. Farwell's talk on
I budding and grafting. In the after
! noon Professor Trumble began the
! program with an address about soils
• and their fertility. Professor Trum
i ble made his lecture very clear by
| using large wall charts that could
jbe seen from all over the room, and
ithe audience could take notes from
the charts as well as from the speak
er. The, number of note books that
j were in evidence was a proof of the
interest that was being shown. Only
| once did Professor Trumble get be
yond his audience, and that was in
! naming some minute nitrogen-maker
; that had no common name. The
| locturer repeated the name several
times but nobody got it. It was too
long to get on any of the charts.
The second part of the afternoon
was taken up with an address by C.
W. Wilmeroth just as the World
went to press.

BROWN BOUGHT k
WATERVILLE MEN CLAIM DICK
SON DID NOT OWN THE VAN
COUVER FRANCHISF—MAY BE
TAKEN INTO COURTS.
Has Bob Brown bought into trou
ble with the Vancouver franchise?
Can the sorrel-topped manager
straighten out the impending legal
trouble, or will he have a fight on
his hands? ,
Word was received yesterday after-!
jnoon by Joe Cohn, of the Spokanei
! club, from Britt and O'Leary of Wa-i
; terville. Wash., that they intend to
fight for their share of the Vancou-j
| ver franchise which they believe is)
! due them.
When Dickson went into the Ca-|
! nadian town Britt and O'Leary were >
( equal partners with Dickson in the
j deal. It is claimed Dickson bought
j the two Waterville men out and gave
J paper for the deal. On the option
: then secured it is claimed he sold
!an interest to Lord of Vancouver. The
j club was carried along, with outside
1 assistance, by these men.
Now the former partners at Wa
terville claim the Vancouver fran
chise could not be disposed of with
out their consent, as they have not
been paid for their share. Britt and
O'Leary claim that the best legal ad
vice in Vancouver has advised a fight,
and that they intend to take the case
into the courts.
Looks Like Trouble.
This will mean that Brown has got
ten himself into a kettle of fish. A
lawsuit over the franchise will cause
all kinds of trouble and probably
much delay in the settlement of the
transfer. The tangle over the Van
couver franchise has been causing
trouble all winter, and it has been a
question of who really owned the
property to be disposed of.
Options were asked by several base
hall men in this section of the coun
try in the hopes of making the pur
chase, but it remained for the ex-
Spokane manager to get the plum, if
it turns out to be that variety of
"It looks to me as though Brown
has bought into a good lawsuit," says
Joe Cohn. "The question will be
fought out according to what Britt
and O'Leary told me last night, and
it may take some time and trouble
to settle the matter satisfactorily."
