A case of diphtheria was reported yester
day at tbo residence of C. M. Philips , 2029
South r.lghth street. There have been sev
eral cases In this neighborhood and com
plaints have been made that the quarantine
regulations have not been properly ob
served. Complaints of this character havp
become so frequent of late from all parts
of the city that the health officials have de
termined to make some arrests and glvo
some examples that will call attention to ttic
provisions of the state quarantine laws. The
testimony of physicians who have been
called upon to express an opinion universally
points to the laxity permitted In the enforce
ment of the quarantine laws as tbo chief
cause of the spread of contagious diseases.
Justice Cook Is still endeavoring1 to
straighten out the kinks In a case where

creditors of Scrlbncr endeavored to collect
a Judgment against him , which Is held by
a man who was then his partner , by gar
nishing one of Scrlbncr's present custom
ers. The material for the work done for
this customer had been furnished by
Uroatch. and when the customer was gar
nished Uroatch Intervened. Justice Cook
held that the company must first pay com
pany debts before the Individual claims of
members of the company could bo satisfied.

One I'oniillNt'N Depp Iiitercnt.
In one of the many rcdbot political dis
cussions constantly under way In front of the
democratic headquarters a well known popu
list yesterday was compelled to admit that
ho had a selfish Interest In the election of
Bryan. The man did not become a populist
until several months after the Chicago plat
form was promulgated , but as election day
draws near ho has become a very enthusi
astic Dryanltc. In tbo discussion yesterday
the fact was developed that ho had con
verted every available dollar of his money
Into gold , bad drawn It from the banks and
was hoarding It with the conviction that
each dollar would bo 'worth two If Bryan
"So you expect to bo well paid for your
vote for Bryan ? " said his Interlocutor.
"Yes , sir , " said the populist , "and If
Bryan is elected I will more than double
my money. I recollect when gold went to
$2.40 In this country and In the present
conditions I believe It will do better than

John Don't Wear n Necktie.
Hon. John P. Irish spoke to a large and
enthusiastic audience In Council Bluffs Fri
day night , nnd It was observed among the
peculiarities1 of the man that ho never
wears a necktie. Whether ho dispensed
with this article of dress for the purpose
of being considered "common folks" or
whether ho Is hard to suit his friends are
unable to say , but If Jio had seen the ele
gant line of neckwear that Hughes , the
men's outfitter. Is showing at 415 Broadway
ho would undoubtedly have overcome his
whim. A man Is not dressed unless ho
wears a tie , and when there Is such a
beautiful line to select from as Hughes Is
showing , and at such a low figure , there
Is no excuse for being halt dressed.
Work on the bed of Mosquito creek Is
being done by a gang of laborers under the

The most Important , font In swimming In
the history of the const wns accomplished
the other day , nays the San Frnn-
clsco Chronicle , by Charles Cnvlll ,
the champion swlmmcr _ of Australia ,
Cavlll managed to breast tides nnd
currents between Fort Point nnd
the Mitrln county shore nnd swam ncross
the Golden Gate. It was 3:30 : o'clock when
Cavlll left Devil's Point , and Just ono hour
nnd tlftccn minutes later he touched the
rocks about 200 yards seaward from Fort
Wlnllcld Scott , having covered a distance
as the crow Hies of over ono nnd one-
The Australian's performance drew a big
crowd. The shore about Fort Point was
lined with people , and the waters In the
Gata wcro crowded with small craft of
every description. The ferryboat Snusultto
had a place In the stream with almost a.
thousand people aboard.
From a swimmer's standpoint the day
was an Ideal one. The water was ns
smooth as could bo desired , Its surface
only rippled by the curling edges of the
long swells that came from the ocean.
Thcro wns a slight wind blowing , but It
was not strong enough to kick up any dis
Cavlll left the Sausallto when the boat ar
rived In midstream off Ltmc Point. Ho had
ns companions Adolph Kuhn , the high
diver of the California Swimming' club , and
Prof. Kllllck of the Sutro baths life-saving
crew. The tlda was at a standstill nnd the
three men chose ns a starting point for the
swimmer a bunch of rocks about 100 yards
north of Devil's Point nnd a mlle north
of Limo Point. A selected crew from the
Dolphin Uont club acted as escort In n
Cavlll wore the regulation tights. Ho
dlppod Into the water easily nnd naturally ,
and started for the San Francisco Hhore
with energy , Kllllck and ICahn and the
Dolphin crew accompanying him In boats.
The swimmer led off with a long , easy ,
right-side stroke , and for the llrst few
hundred yards of the course the way was
easy nnd his pace wax rapid. About a
quarter of a milo from shore the Aus
tralian encountered what he saya waa the
swiftest current he over met.
The tldo had turned since ho left the
ferry , and wua now pouring' through the
channel with the speed of n mill race. The
ripples roared like n miniature sea and
threatened to engulf tire boats. Cavlll
struck Into It bravely , ana attempted to
stay Its progress by turning hla face to
ward Sausallto and swimming north. The
rowers In the boat attempted similar tac
tics , but the rush of waters toward the
ocean carried everything with It. Seeing
that It wns useless to attempt to withstand
the force of the tide , Cavlll drifted with It.
He was carried out almost to the Heads
before he encountered the counter-currents
on the Presidio shore. The eddy opposite
Point I.ohos caught him In Its grip and
whirled him back again toward the bay.
From this time on Cavlll's work waa com
paratively easy. Ho swam leisurely nnd
easily toward the fort , followed by half
a hundred boats and tugs. A half mlle
from the landing point ho picked up an
old felt hat that wan floating In the water
nnd put It on his head , much to the amuse
ment of the spectators.
As ho neared the shore Cnvlll increased
his speed. The Dolphin crow nnd a boat
from the Life Saving service cleared the
way. Thcro wns a long , slow swell
smashing against the rocks , and on top ( if
one of these breakers Cavlll landed easily.
Thcro was a great crowd awaiting his ar
rival , and us the tnvlmmcr walked up the
beach ho wns given an ovation by every
thing and everybody , from the small boy
on tlta fort parapets to the big whistle of
the steamer SiniHnllto. Cavlll returned to
the water almost Immediately and swam
to the Dolphin club's boat , from which ho
was transferred to the b'.uisallto.
Cuvlll'B performance adds a new notch
to the swimming record of the coast. The
time upent In covering the distance la re
markably Hhort , considering contrary tides
and currents and the fact that ho was car
ried almost a mlle out of hln course.
Throughout ho swam on his right Bide ,
using n sldo Htroke.
At the finish he wns almost at ) fresh ns
when lie started. The water was cold , nnd
when he touched shore after hla long swim
bis right arm and leg wcro benumbed to
the point of uselcssncss.
The swimmer's physical dimensions are :
Height , u feet 10 Inches ; weight. 180 pounds ;
chcHt measurement , 43 Inches , with the
phenomenal expamdon of 9 % Indies. Ho Is
the son of Prof. Fred Cavlll of England ,
who swam across the English channel In
eleven hours , making a world's record.

Opinion by CommlFsioner Irvine.
A servant penerally does not assume the
risk of dancers duo to his master's negli
gence , nor does he In all cases assume the
risk of dangers arising from sudden un
foreseen circumstances , not ordinarily In
cident to the employment.
2. When a master gives a servant a com
mand requiring the doing of nn act not
within the usual scope of the servant's
duty , which must lw performed at onec or
not at nil , without opportunity for delibera
tion , the servant Is not charged with con
tributory negligence In the performance ,
even tliouch there may have been danger
apparent to him In tno performance of the
net , unless the dancer was HO patent that a
prudent man would not have obeyed.
3. In such case the master may be neg
ligent In giving the command , although
the servant was not negligent In obeying
4. The tcstiof contributory negligence In
such cases as In others Is whether the
servant In obeying conducted himself ns a
man of ordinary prudence would conduct
himself under the circumstances. An In
struction that the servant was not neg
ligent unless no ono but n reckless or
foolhardy man would have obeyed , , Is
Rarney against Stnte. Error from Holt

A district judge may for any Inwful

It from service. '
3. The fact that nil or'nearly all jurors

4. The provision of section 4C3 n of the

C. Therefore , when the causes exist which
authorize the court to order a special

2. Under the foregoing provision. In nn

W. II. Wright tells In Recreation whcro
much of Montana's game has gone. H'o says :
"I have known two self-called sportsmen
to leave Spokane for two days , and on re
turning tell of having killed sixty-three deer ,
a story the ranchman at whoso homo they
put up corroborated. That-was years ago.
It would take a long hunt thcro now to kill
slxty-thrco deer. I once knew a man to go
and make a winter camp and kill over 100
deer , which he hung up. He tried to Bell
them whcro they hung , but failed. He
went cast somewhere , where he lived , and
I've never heard of him since. He claimed
to have killed " 100 , but I counted 1BO car
casses In sight near his camp the following
"While going from Palmer's lake , In
Washington , to the Salmon river , I passed
through Toatseoulee , and stopped over night
near a small lake on which was camped
a party of hunters. It would have been
easy to load a four-horao wagon with the
heads of deer alone that wcro piled up In
one place. Thcro were deer carcasses all
about the camp.
"I could nam6 more than fifty of such
hunters who have killed thousands of deer
and left them where they fell. Only last
winter two men left Spokane and killed
thirty-three deer In Idaho , not bringing out
a pound of meat to show for It.
"I have seen many Indian hunts , ono of
which resulted In the death of over 400
deer , but not one of the deer was wasted.
The Indians bunt and then cat the meat
before they hunt again. They kill to cat ,
but the whites kill for fun. Last spring
ono man In the Bitter Root valley killed
seven elk without stirring from his tracks.
Not ono was saved , "

"I wouldn't tell It In any company but

"Did you have a house blown down ? "
"No. That wouldn't bo anything extra

down. I have been living at a hotel , wait

to bo completed. All the material was

a disaster that means titter obliteration of

Fcnthcrbed lane Is not yet out of the hand *

The road used to bo about twenty feet
wide , rounding over so that tno water , whcr
It rained , drained down Into the gully , or

A long kept local tradition says that the

hungry and forlorn , found In the people
about thorn ardent sympathy. Nothing that
the residents could do was too much for
them to do , and everything that could serve

vegetables from the bins , the clothes from
the closets were freely given. At that time
the feather bed was considered to bo the

The possessors of a feather bed were a
great family. The more feather beds the
greater the family. There wcro all kinds
of feather beds -chicken , geese and duck

of a feather bed was to show the highest

the soldiers of Washington came that way
feather beds and blankets to match were

taken from ono house , too Htnnll to accom
