POLICEMAN GETS LICENSE
A marriage license was issued yesterday to Joseph Lawrence, the pioneer police officer of Alameda city, and Miss Constancia Rosa of San Leandro. Lawrence gave his age as 48 years, and that of his prospective bride as 28. The groom is a widower. He has been in litigation with one of his daughters over the property left by his wife. The daughter has already declared war against her step-mother-to-be.
