Loxtkiv, Sept. 22. The sporting
fraternity are "wild with disappoint
ment over Ibe arrest of the noted
champions Slavin and McAuliffe, who
hare been the objects of intense inter

thought that precautions had been

roidjj off without interference from
the police, but in spite of all their
care the polico succeeded in gainuiK
access to the champions, who we.e
taken before the court and held under

of money was staked on the result of
the fight and expensive preparations
had been made for it, and the disap

THE GRIPPE OX ITS ""WAY.
It Has Crossed the Broad Ocean a Second
Time Some Victims.
The much-dreaded "grippe," which
caused such a mortality in this city
last winter, appears to have made a
fresh start, and another visit during
the fall and winter is not improbable.
The disease is reported to have broken
- gntin - Easton' and over 200 people in
that city are suffering from it. In
iraris it has become almost epidemic,
jujdei n certain sections ot that city the
people artf panic stricken. The symp
toms nreauch more severe than last
Dr. Roberts Bartholow, who was
one of the first physicians in this city
to thoroughly study tho disease when
it was liero. last-winter, is in no fear
ot a-violent epidemic, although he
says-such a danger is- possible. The
microbes are easily spread, and as the
flow of travel at this season )f the
year k from Paris and other European
cities toward this country it would "bo
easy for tne returning tourists to
scatter the germs .broadcast
is a -great distributer oE
.which are carried along in tho upper
strata of tho atmosphere, and all
quarantine regulations become useless
Dr. Bartholow said yesterday that
the cases he had heard of in this city
were merelv common "nflnenwi. nnd
"that if "the "grippo" became epidemic
againjit woulol probably come in a
innuur lorni man last year, as ic was
tue general expenencetnat all epi
demics become less violent with each
recurring visit The .more violent
forms of an epidemic como after long
intervals of freedom from disease.
Frankford has already been visited
by tho disease, and'a aiumber of well
authenticated cases are now under
treatment there. Many people in
other sections show unmistakable
symptoms of the "grippe," and those
who suffered from it last year are posi
tive Jhat their preseut sufferings are
of tho same kind.
There is no prospect of preventinga
spread of the disease if it once gets a
good foothold. Physicians say the
atfhosphero of this part of the coun
try is particularly favorable to such
diseases, and will not only help to
carry tho microbes or germs, but will
nourish and foster them. The cool,
damp nights at this season of the year
should be carefully guarded against,
aathey are a continual source of colds
and influenzas, which need but the
slightest germs to develop into the
"grippe." Ph iladelph ia Record.

Boat and. Three Men.
XWO SO ATS AXD CRnTTS J.OST.
The many readers of The Astobiak
will remember an article published
March 25th, giving an account of three
men in a boat who wero picked up at
sea some fifty miles off the mouth of
tho Columbia river, having been lost
from the sealing schooner Sophia
Sutherland. They were picked up
by the schooner J. Hamilton Lewis'
transferred to tho British bark Archer
and brought to this city.
Tho Sophia Sutherland arrived at
San Francisco last weekk and the first
officer, A. M. Scott, who was in com
mand, gave a (Jail reporter a statement,
reviewing the loss of the boat alluded
to, and also giving an account of the
recent loss of another boat, in which
was Capt, Charles Haritwen, familiar
ly known as "Long Charlie," from
which we quote as follews:
"On March 21st, when we were forty
miles west of Gray's harbor, we lost
one boat and crew, or rather tho crew
stole away with tho boat, two guns,
one compass, sails, oars, water keg
and a quantity of ammunition and eata
bles enough to last them for four days
at least. All the boats were out that
day and overy ono came back in the
evening wnn seals. Tne .day was
clear and there was no fog whatever.
"As soon as we missed them wo ex
amined their bunks and found all
their effects gone with tho exception
of a small empty valiso" belonging to
the hunter. The names of tho crew of
the boat were: Harry Kraffc, hunter;
Chas. J. Lee, seaman; August Ehlort,
seaman. We heard that they were
picked up by tho schooner J. Hamil
ton Lewis and transferred to tho
British bark Archer and landed at As
ANOTHER BOAT MISSING.
"On August 11th wo lost in the
Behriug sea a boat containing our cap
tain, who also acted as hunter, and
two seamen. The names of the boat's
crew are: Charles Haritwen, William
A. Sutherland and George Chapman.
It is to be hoped that this la3t boat
will turn up all right, as the day was
the most beautiful one ever seen in
that sea. There was not a breath of
wind up to noon the next day.
"We sailed to and fro for ten days,
ininKing we mignc meec witn a
schooner that had picked, them up,
but were unsuccessful. It i3 possible,
however that thy have been picked
