Hill, the captain of Davis police, came around and ex- tended his hand in the midst of the host of friends who were congratulating him. But Geers put his hands in his pockets and declined to shake hands with? him, saying, "I will draw the line right here." Hill became furious at the seeming insult. He was so exasperated that he proceeded to express his opinion of the court and of the citizens.
