Constitution, not having conferred the pow-

going into th inquest of insanity, the Pro-
bate Judge must appoint a guardian for
tho pers on charged with insanity. For
what purpose? Why, simp ly to make him a

EV. SHIELDS$3000 A YEAR FOR
The Democratic House of Repiesenta-
tives bestow ed on General Shields a grace-
ful, and we sincerely hop e, it may pro ve a
substantial, compliment in requesting and
authorizing the Piesident to appoint the old
hero, Brigadier General of the United States
army, on the retired list. The bill was
passed by a vote of 22 8 to 6, and should
be at once agreed to by the Senate, and
acted upon by the President. I would be a
noble examp le and a monument of national
gratitude rather than a dangerous precedent.
N foreign-born citizen, in the half-cen-
tury ju st passed, became so thoroughly a
United States citizen, ands much a distin-
guished part of the new nationality as Gen.
Shields. N man has been braver on the
field of battle nor more beloved in the polit-
ical and social circle. bears on his per-

him, not only for bis patriotism and heroio

vice than by complying with the act of Con-
gress and the wishes of the peopl e, in giving
to the old general honor and a competency.

A PANIC I N ADBIG STORE.
Immense Advances in the Price* of Qui
nine and Morphine.
Yesterday was a day of considerable ex
citement among druggists of the city, conse
quent upon the receipt of advices from the
East showing that an immense advance had
recently tak en place in the price of quini ne
and opium, owing to the war prospects in
Europ e, and worse, that there was likely to
be so great a scarcity of those articles as to
make it impossible to furnish them in any
quantities or at any prices.
Reporters of the Enquirer last evening
called upon several druggists, and found
them in a considerably perturbed state of
mind and anxiously casting about for some
means yet unknown or unthought of for re
plenishing their stock.
The detail of thiB trouble may be pre
faced with the statement that but one firm
in the United States manufactures to any
extent either the sulphate of quinine used as
medicine or the sulphate of morphia, and
that their capacity for manufacture is of
coiuse limited by the amount of the cinchona
bark and opium that could be obtained from
abroad by them. Should this be gobbled up
by the agents of the armies abroad likely to
be in the field, there must ensue a scarcity
or famine, as it were, of the articles in ques
tion. This being the recognized fact, the
receipt by the trade of the following circu
lars from the firm in question in quick sue
cession was eminently sufficient to cause the
panic referred to. They were as follows:
With reference to contracts for sulphate of
quima, the peculiar position of the bark mar

we believe, by surprise.
I consequence of some contracts for the ar
ticle for immediate delivery pressing upon the
European manufacturers, the price has ad
vanced there two to four shillings per ounce,
and the article is scarce for prompt delivery.
Barks also have been largely absorbed there,
and hence have become scarce. But should the
usual supplies of these come in before July,
lower prices ay be looked for late in the sum
mer. As matters now stand, we regret that at
present we are unable to make offers or accept
new orders for sulphate of quinia.

he result of this was that quinine, which
a few days ago was selling at $2.90 per
ounce, last night was worth $5.50 per ounce
and rapidly advancing, with none to be had
from any source. Opium had advanced $ 1
per pound, and morphia $ 1 per ounc e, an
increase of from 2 0 to 3 3 per cent., with
comparatively none in the market, and
everybody anxious to buy. The local
wholesalers he re are in about the same con
diti on with the retailers, having little in
stock, especially of quinin e, and anxiously
striving to lay in a supply, but without re
sult. What the result wtll be it is impossible
to predict. Sulpha te of cinchonidia is being
substituted for quinine in some instances,
but, as that is al so made from the cinchona
bark, the supply must, of course, be limite d.

SUPEEME C0UBT. $
DECISION Of CASE TILED TESTEB-
Michael W. Nash, appellant, vs Minneapolis
Mill Company and Dorilus Morrison, re
On the trial below after the plaintiff had
closed bis case, the court dismissed the action
to both defendants on the ground that plain
tiff had failed to make out a cause of action.
There was evidence sufficient to go to the jury
from which they might have arrived at these
conclusions of fact. Th mi ll company
ownes in the city of Minneapolis a strip of
land lying along the westerly bank of the
Mississippi river, partly above and partly be
low the falls. Some years ago it corttructed
for convenience in wing this property for
milling purposes a canal about eighty feet
wide at the upper end and diminish
ing in width towards the lower end,
extending through the strip nearly parallel
with the river, forth distance of probably one
thousand feet. Into this canal the water was
taken at the upper end from the pond Above
the falls, and from the canal was furnished for
water power to the mills, along its sides. Th
land along each side of the canal was let
by the company to various tenants for mill
sites, and to each tenant a right of way over
the cant I, to the premises so* let, granted. Th
canal for its entire length and breadth was
covered with a continuous platform, construc
ted of timbers and plank, and this platform
was for at least ten jears, and with
the full knowledge and acquiescince
of the defendants, used in common
by all who had business with the mills
afoog the canal in the same manner as a public
thoroughfare iused and that use of it
necessary to the convenient transaction
of the business of the mills. As to
that part of the platform where
the injury to plaintiffs property occurred, the
arts are that in 1863 the mi ll company let to
the defendant Morrison for a term of years a
mill site abutting on the canal, with the right
to draw from the canal a specified quantity of
water and the right to pass over the canal adja
cent to the mill-site. I 1865 Morrison let a
part of this mill-site with the right of way in
comm on with himself over the canal, to Noble
& Walker. Noble assigned to Walker, and
Walker to Stamivitz & Shober, and they
during the continuance of this lease construct
ed in front of the premises let to th em the part
of the platform in question. Since the end of
Stamivitz and Shober's term Morrison has been
in possession, under the lease to him, of all the
premises no leased. I August, 1876, plaintiff,
who was hauling for the mill adjoining these
premises] drove his team and halted it for the
purpose of loading upon this part of the plat
form, and while standing there the platform
broke, letting his horses and wagon down into
the canal, causing the injury complained
of. There was evidence from
which the juiy might find that
there was negligence in faili ng to keep the
platform in safe condition, and that this negli
gence was the cause of the break. Neither of
these defendants having constructed this part
of the platform, the question is, whether in
respect to persons coming upon it as plaintiff
did, the duty of keeping it in safe condition,
rested upon the defendants, or either of them,
and if so, up on which of the m.
The rule of law governing the case is that
the owner or occupant of real property is bound
to use ordinary care and diligence to keep the
premises in a safe condition for the
access of persons who come
thereon by his invitation, expressed
or implied forth transaction of business, or
for any other purpose beneficial to him Mor
rison was neither the owner nor the occupant
of the canal, or the platform over it. had
merely the right of way over it, in common
with all others, to whom the company might,
so long as it did not prevent the exercise of his
rights, grant similar rights. Th lease of his
mill site gave him no other right. Th case of
the company is different. Th land through
which the canal was cut was, including the
canal, and so far as the case shows, the plat
form covering it, real estate, and the exclusive
property of the company which it held subject
only to the rights of way over it, which it had
granted to others, and subject to such rights.
It was in possession of this real property
plaintiff had a right to go upon the platform
in transacting business with or for the tenants
of the company occupying the mill sites along
the sides of the land. Whether the company
itself constructed the platform, or permitted
others to construct it, the platform was placed
there, and by the company was permitted to
remain there forth use of persons transacting
business, with those rules and for the con
venient using of the company's property.
Without the right of such persons to go there,
this property would undoubtedly be of much
less value and that the company permitted the
platform to remain there to be used by such
persons, for its own benefit and advantage,
there can be no question. I stands there in
the position of an owner or occupant who
for his own benefit invites others to come upon
his premises, and is subject to the same liabili
ty. Th court below was wrong in dismissing
as to the company, and right in dismissing as
to Morrison. We do not refer in detail to the
decision of the court below excluding evideaoe
offeted by plaintiff. They were all erroneous.
I was proper to show the character and history
and use of the entire platform covering the
canal, and all the acts of ownership and con
trol over it, or over the canal, on the part of

FRIGHTENED INTO BIGAMY.
Mow Yonng Mrs. Louis* Ramos Came to
Bare Two Husbands.
(San Francisco Chronicle.]
One of those peculiar cases of marital ec
centricity rarely heard of west of Brooklyn
has been brought to the attention of the po
lice court through the complaint of Manuel
Bamos, who has procured the arrest of
Douglas Ellery on a charge of felony, which
crime consists in forcing Bamos's wife to
contract a second marriage, regardless of the
rights of the original husband, and the law
prohibiting dual marriages. Ramos is a cit
izen of mercurial temperament and Italian
extraction. married Louise Bett er about
three years ago, and the pair had since been
boarding wit\ Bamos's mother-in-law, who
resides at the corner of Pacific and Davis
I happened that Ellery, who is a seafaring
gentleman, plying between this port and
Santa Cruz, established his headquarters on
shore at the same residence about a year ago,
and experienced an irresistible attraction to
the wife of Bamos. The latter, ufed of er
fascinations, did not inform her husband of
Ellery's attachmen t, but rather encoaraged
is attentions, until the susceptible sea dog
became so infatuated that he made bo ld to
proclaim his love, coupled with the undeni
able protestation that he would kill her if she
id not conrent to become his wife. Terri
fied by this threat, and controlled by the de
sire to avert a murder, Louise vielded, and
on this hint Eilery acted to the extent of
procuring a license, in which transaction he
gave the maiden name oZ his bride. The
pair were married about a month ago.
After the ceremony, Mrs. Bamos returned
to her husband, keeping the little episo de a
profound secret in her breast until yesterday.
Meantime she urged Bamos to dispose of his
business in this city and remove to some di
tantpart of the State. Like an indulgent
husban d, Bamos endeavored to comply with
is wife's wishes, not suspecti ng that there
was anything more in her inclination than a
desire for a change of scene and the opp or
tunity of enjoying the more genial atmos
phere of rural society. finally determined
that it was impossible for him to dispose of
his business immediately to satisfactory ad
vantage, and so informed his wife.
O this intimatio n, the dis
tracted Louise burst into tears, and informed
the horrified Bamos that she was no longer
is wife, as she had been compelled, as a
matter of life and death, to marry another
husband. After obtaining a promise from
Bamos that he would refrain from killing
any person on the spot, the afflicted woman
related the circumstanc es of her enforced
marria ge with the treacherous Ellery, with
he intimation that Ellery had now become
impatient of delay, and was determined to
carry out his threat of murder if she did not
immediately become the wife of his bosom
in all that that term implie d.
O this information the outraged husband
immediately procur ed a warrant against El
lery. and he was arrested yesterday afternoon
and locked up in the city prison on a char ge
of felon y, which may probab ly be construed
to mean constructive bigamy. Before his
arrest Ellery called on Bamos and proposed
a compromise upon the basis of Bamos
relinquishing his cla im to the pre
cious woman, promising on his
part to be a good and faithful hus
band to her further declared that, if
the law so ordained, he would cheerfully
serve term in State prison for his impetu

penance the beloved Louise would live with
him. Mr Bamos received these frank de c
larations in the spirit in which they were
made, stati ng to the ruthless intruder upon
his domestic domain that he had given his
solem oath not to kill any person, and would
