Trouble has  arisen     over the manner in which the  visitor is     to-    be   entertained.     Sir  Frederick     is an authority    on many  branches, of   law studies,   and his u-\t  books  figure  in the curriculum of the  Law Society.     The younger element,  among the using banisters of the city who     have studied his works were  very anxiois     to meet  him while he  was here, and were led to believe that  a bar    dinner     would lie tendered at,  which he     would deliver   ��������� an address'  The benchers, however,  who formate  executive     body of the Law Society,  seem lo have established a very e'lcc-  tne corner on     the  noted guest,  and  instead of the rank and file being given a   'look-in on the     entertainment.

There  is   considerable   dissatisfaction    with-  thc tinvuher  in  which  the Council has  acted  in  the   matter,   and   the  general feeling ds that .too much UMention  has  been   paid   to  other  affairs without  suflieieiit  consideration   for    the  public health.      This   afternoon      it-  was      announced   that   four   hundred  eases of fever   had  been  reported  at  the City Health Olliee. **  The      attention   of   the   provincial  Hoard of ^Health has .been  directed to  the  matter,  and  Dr.  Gordon Bell and  Dr.   R. id.

Mr.   E.   I\L   Wood,      the   municipal  commissioner,      stated   this   morn-tug  that'     Drs.  Bell  and  Simpson .would  report  to   the   provincial  hoard within   the  next   two  days.    The  results  of flic investigation   are  being-  awaited   with   anxiety  by   those   who  un-  di*rs1;ii;-,ll   the   serious   hold   that   typhoid  fever has on the. city. *  The     large   majority  of  the cases  to tell her  real had  their  location , in   the foreign district in the north end of the city.

Never once did the woman,hesitate  Not once did she show   the  least sign  of  remoise nor. even  pity   for'     he.  broken-hearted husband.    It  was-one  of  the saddest cases  ever  brought to  the notice of a court in this county.  Her deposition  wrll be used   at    the  trial      next month Lot-h against her  and  Frank Walsh,  the   man  who she  says   accomplished  her   ruin.  Walsh" has been in jail several days  but Mrs-. Chandler has been in the  hospital sufferfng from rheuni-artisin  and did not know till iyesterrlay morn  i-jig that she was to be arrssted. Sire  knew that Walsh was iu jail and she  admitted to her husband the truthfulness of the.charge. Yesterday, sh.  having recovered sufficiently to lea\.  the hospital, the warrant was served  on her and she was taken into custody.

She told how she met Walsh     ii.  Troy while   her husband  was  out liar-  ves-ting,   of   their  buggy   ride   and   of  his   visits   to  her  home.    Between hi  sobs   Chandler   asked   his   wife   if   it-  was      true  that,  she had   told,Walsh  she would   leave" her husband.      She  said   it was    true   and   that   she   did  not intend   to live with   him   longer.  Then   Mr.   Chandler   produced   a letter  be had   received  from his   wife's  father,  Mr.  Grower of  Spokane, saying,   "Your   father  has   written    me  and   blames   nie   for   this   trouble.   lie  says  1 never provided  for you."  "I  don't  see  how  lie can   do   that;  you   have   given   me   everything       I  wanted,"'  replied  the disgraced  woman.,   but   without   the   least   sign      of  sorrow   or   sympathy.

BASEBALL���������  The baseball season closed in Seattle on Sinivlay.   tin,the same day tire  Seattle   Time's   published   the   following:  It  is  now  pretty  generally   understood      all   around   lire*  circuit   that  that, meeting  held  in   Portland   a few  wceJ.s  ago   where   it  was voted       to  continue   the coast   league   for   three  more  years,   did   not   mean  anything.  The   real   test,   will   come  in   the   annual meeting  to.be he'd *i'i San Francisco  in  December..   A bieak-up  may  occur at   that  time  that will  result  in  a new circuit  here,  something oil  the lines of (he old  Pacific -.National,  while   the  California   towns  -will    go  back to  the old  four-club Californian  league.   One. thing certain, the northern  towns will not  gi* in (unless they  get a better deal  than  the  one they  arc now working-under.; [The Seattle  men arc  perfectly -indifferent as     to  whether  they play .with Calif.'fcnia or  rrot. .A  fine six-club c.irciiit can     be  rormed   up here,   while  in   California  a four-club  league is  about    the limit.   Under   the   present   arrangement  Uncle Marry Harris  is. the undisputed boss .pf the league, and San  Francisco 'is 'the whole thing-.  A .new deal  will have to be made, and  more consideration      shown   to   the   northern  clubs next year,  or  they will      not  stay  in the'iieague.   That nwrch seems  certain.    It may be-that Uncle Henry,  will  be able to spread  the salve   on  the  same terms   as-at present,     but  lliey   will not  stand   for  if,   and     as  they can  be perfectly   independent"-of  Calil'onr'ia and  still stay yu   the,baseball   business,   they   are in   a position  to  dictate  nyre favorable  terms.  NO  SALVAGE  ON      ",   *  OARED BOATS.  The Vancouver   Province says'  The  recovery  of  several  fishing  boats and  rowboats in the Gulf of Georgia lately      has   raised   a ratjher  interesting  point in respect to the question     of  salvage.    These boats,  cast adrift or  abandoned   during stress  of  weather,  were  brought  into  port  by  incoming  tugs,   whtcsc masters  in-������e\'eral     instances set  up   a claim . for  salvage,  in      one  case thc sum  of ^."i being  sought as compensation  for  towing a  fishing boat in.  Investigation    by     legal .authority  has  developed  the  fact that no legal  claim  for   salvage can  be  set up for  lire rescue of .any boat which is whol  ly     or in  part dependent upon oars  for  its motive powers.    As   a fishing  boat     is   frequently  propelled      by  oars,  it  is held   that   no  salvage can  be claimed  for the rescue of such a  craft.  This is  interesting  to shipping men  espeo'blly  to the  masters  of vessels  of the mosquito ,fleet,   who  frequently  fall  in   with  small boats adrift ia  English   Bay.    Of corns'?,  no salvage  can   be claimed   for .any craft rescued  within   the limits  of  the harbor,  but     it  is a new  and   pertinent fact  that ���������   m'vie  can   be  secured   on any  boat  propelled     by oars- no matter  where it   is  found.    This being     tho  case tugboatmen   will   not  in future  show  any   disposition   to  go  out   of  their way   to pick up drifting boats  and  bring  them to port.
