Circuit Judge William Smith, handed
down a decision In which ha finds that
the plaintiff la not entitled to the de
cree prayed for In his complaint, and
that neither is the wife entitled to le

Why XiOte ZiOit Seoree.
fin hja findings the Judgre favors the
plaintiff all the way, but the reason
he granted no decree in his favor la
probably ahown In paragraph It where
in ' he says that since Love left hla
'family in England he haa not sought
a reconciliation with his wife In un-
rniatakable terms, haa not provided a
home for hla wife, or shown her that
he haa been anxious to resume their
marriage relation, in short haa not
created - a condition which the wife
might feel she ahould accept without
Jeopardising her happiness should she
leave her mother.
;j Judge Smith hands down a lengthy
opinion iu the ease, in 'Which he nues
tlona Mrs. Love on many matters. He
points out that she accused her husband
f losing 120.000 at roulette at New
port, and at the same time admits she ,
purchased . a, roulette -wheel and other
gambling apparatus for him. The judge
suggests that perhaps Mrs. Love had
rather ae her husband behind a rou
lette wheel than standing in 'front

He feorea ti. members .pi. the: bar en
gaged as counsel for Mrs.' Lfeve for the
character of tha .-m by whose testi
mony they sought to prove counter
charges brought against the plaintiff
by his wife. -Especially does he score
Benjamin Tueka. the New York attor
ney, who on the stand admitted that he
paid hla witnesaaa for "Keeping in
touch with him." .
He characterise the trouble between
the man and wife as "merely psycholog
ical," and holds that the plaintiff ' did
not receive due conaideratlon from the
members of his family at . the time he
lost his money, at which time his pride
had been hurt, and when all ktndnesaes
should have been his portion.
Love is out of town at present, and
his attorney, John L. Rand, stated )!

him, he could not say whether or not
the case would be carried to the su

been hinted at. In case, "the decision

The Southern Pacific will not con-
teat the decision of the Interstate Com
merce commission In the Willamette
valley and the South Portland lumber
rate cases, xnia wasmacie evident yes
terday by the publication of tariffs giv
ing the new rates.
The Willamette valley decision held
that It was unreasonable for the rail
road to advance the rate on green rough
fir lumber from Willamette valley
points to San Francisco bay to $S per
ton and ordered a rate of J3.50, 40 cents
higher tha the original rate which the
railroad has made prior but futile at
tempts to advance. The commisnion in
rendering Its decision stated clearly that,
it was based on the reasonableness of
the rate and not on any agreement that
might have existed at some former
time In order to assist the valley lum
ber manufacturers to develop a market
for their product.

Hurricane Off Cape Hat

Goes to the Rescue.
Atlantic City, N. J., Sept. 2. Caught
In the hurricane off Cape Hatteras
where her low pressure cylinder blew
out, finally repairing the damage and
returning slowly to New York, the
steamer Allianca of the Panama Steam
ship company's line, was compelled to
anchor off Barnegat, north of here, to
night and at 10 o'clock transferred her
68 passengers, 29 Of whom were women
nd children, to the steamer Oruba of
the Royal Blue line.
The transfer was made without acci
dent, according to a wireless message
from the operator on the Allianca, and
there waa no panic.
The wireless report said the Allianca
anchored at 6 o'clock tonight between
BarneRat and Sandy Hook and the cap
tain sent the following message to the
Oruba:
"To Captain Oruba. Latitude 40.06;
longitude 73.64 and steering north; will
have to anchor and transfer passengera.
A. W. Maynps, captain."
By a previous arrangement the Oruba
had been Instructed to keep a lookout
for the Allianca before she left New
York for South American ports at 1:45
today.
When the Oruba met the Allianca the
sea was too heavy to attempt a transfer
and a wireless call was sent for a tug
which reached the Allianca shortly after
9 o'clock. Before any attempt was
made to transfer the passengers the
mall was taken off and Sent aboard
the Oruba. This gave the passengers
confidence and they were immediately
transferred.
The Allianca left New York August
SO for the canal zone. Her passengers
will proceed on the Oruba, which la
bound for the same ports.

Prisoner "Sweated" for Seven

Formal Charge.
(By tte International News Service.)
Denver, Sept. 2. Bruno Grosser, 70
years old, assistant secretary of the
National Jewish hospital for consump
tives, was arrested shortly before mid
night tonight charged with embezzle
ment. The amount of Grosser's al
leged defalcations are' not given, but
from the hospital authorities it was
the statement that the sum will be
in tiie neighborhood of J80.000.
Grosser's arrest comes as the semi
climax of an Investigation started 10
days ago Into the accounts of Alfred
Muller, secretary of the . association,
who died suddenly and unexpectedly a
month ago. Muller was one of the lead
ing Jewish lawyers of the west and for
a score of years had devoted mUch of
his time to Jewish philanthropic work.
Experts Put on Books.
Soon after his death rumors became
current that his accounts were in a
tangled condition and experts were put
on his books.
It now develops. It Is claimed, that
Muller had for years turned over to
Grosser the duty of handling most
of the money sent from Jews all over
the country for the support of the
hospital instead of looking after the
work himself, as he waa supposed to
do.
Holler round Shortage.
Muller discovered Grosser's alleged
shortage, and In oreder to protect him
aa well as himself, did everything to
cover up the defalcations, even going
to the extent of signing the name of
Samuel Grabfelder, the wealthy Phlla
delDhian. and president of the asaocla-
tlon.-to large notes. Muller expected
te redeem H-heee notes, before they- be
came due. but when . he found it im

the association, ha gave up hope. His
death followed, the cause being given
as heart disease.
Grosser has been under surveillance
for several day a. He was taken into
