gave an Informal luncheon to King Vic
tor of Italy today aboard tha Imperial
yacht Hohensollern. . The emperor re
ceived his visitor without the least show
of ceremony, and only eight were In the
party that sat down to luncheon. ;
The kaiser talked but little during the
hour and a half that he entertained, and
seemed continually , troubled with a
slight cough. It is believed here -that
his majesty Is suffering far more from
his throat affection than Is admitted by
either himself or his . physicians. . In
fact it Is next to an Impossibility to
get any news from members of the im
perial staff or from the emperor. That
his Mediterranean trip was taken for
the sole purpose of recuperation and the
possibility of a. second operation for
cancerous growth In tha throat is now
believed. This opinion Is held because
tha true state of the kaiser's health can
not be obtained from any source.

Tha sum of $25,000 has been appropriated-

Owing - to .the . fact that ' tha - Pacific
Construction company, which has the
contract for repairing tha -Morrison
street bridge, - intends to close that
structure within a few days, it is likely
that the projected work on the Burnslde
street bridge will be delayed. By re
quest County Judge Webster and the
county commissioners held a conference
with F. M. Bulter, manager of .tha com
pany, yesterday afternoon.
Butler asserts that It will soon be Im
possible to continue work on the Mor
rison street bridge without closing it
to all traffic. It is not advisable, in his
opinion, to close both bridges at once.
The consensus of opinion on tha part of
the commissioners is that the work on
the Burnslde street bridare can not be
delayed long and that some way 'must
be found to carry it on without closing1
the structure.-

of the opinion, however, that the diffi

this is done the various steam schooners

On account of the strike great quan

Carelessness of prooedure shown In
connection with commitments from tha
police and justice courts to the state cir
cult courts caused a turmoil at the courlt
house yesterday afternoon. Though tha
grand Jury' returned, a not true bill In
the case of Walter Smith : and James
Cooley, charged with enticing 14-year-old
Olive - Mcintosh into - a disorderly
house, the order of John B. Cleland, tha
presiding judge, for their release waa
found inoperative for, the reason-that
they were taken-from the countyvoacK
to the city Jail five minutes before tha
grand jury made Its report - In the Casa
of prisoners the state circuit court hag
no jurisdiction over municipal courts.
- This . anomalous condition of affairs,
which caused the fathers of the boys ta
hurry around the building in a stata
making out of orders of release in duplU
cats and certifying to them In order Id
show the municipal authorities that tha
youth should hot be held, waa due In
directly to a violation, of law in this in
stance, as tha code has been disregarded
so long that a number of lesser evils
follow in the train of Its non-obflervanc.
The law is plain and specific In tha
matter of commitments, it provides
that on the first day of the term in tha
higher court all the papers in cases of
committment from the lower court shall
be sent up. This is to permit-the offi
cials, and particularly the district attor
ney, to familiarize themselves ; with
cases, and for other reasons. The law
has never been followed. -
The present term - began on March . 7
and tha crime of which the boys were
accused was . not committed until March
9. - Accordingly the papers in the case
would not have been due lu the higher
court until May 2, tha first, day of tha
next term. The district attorney, how
ever, called tha matter directly to tha
attention of the grand Jury, the same as
he did that of "Canadian Whltey" and
others. The boys were sent up, and as
the law seems, never no have been fol
lowed in tha case of commitments at
all, common sense in the present in
stance would have dictated that the com
mitment papers ba sent along. Thoy
were not and five minutes before tha
grand Jury reported .yesterday, the boys
were sent for and taken back ta the city
Jail. ' The grand Jury, found not a trua
btil. Judge Cleland ordered their release
from the county jail. When a deputy
clerk went to the Jail,, accompanied by
the boys' parents, they were gone. Then
a' lot of trouble'ensued in showing tha
municipal authorities that they should
be released. The Injustice of holding
them after they were exonerated by tha
grand Jury Is evident , Even If com
mitted from tha lower court the district
attorney would ba obliged to order their
release aa soon aa the commitment waa
made out i-r -'-'"
