CAUSES ARREST OF HER HUSBAND
A phase of the divorce suit of George W. Hull, the Arizona millionaire, against Margaret Hull presented itself this afternoon in Justice Quinn's court, when the wife swore to complaints against her wealthy husband and a woman named WM Hewett, charging them with disturbing the peace. She claims they attacked her last night at her home in Berkeley and beat her.
By stipulation with her husband she was to receive a large amount deposited in the Oakland Bank of Savings in monthly installments of $100. She presented the first draft yesterday, but her husband had instructed the bank not to honor it.
Later in the day he and the woman named, it is claimed, sought her in Berkeley and in an attempt to secure custody of a minor child, beat her.
