pplic&nt Desired to Perform Marrioffa
iVdJt. W. S. Quirk of the Salvation Armyday
applied to Clerk Young of the DlsIct
Supreme Court for authority to solmlze
marriages In the District. He was
med with a certificate that he Is a duly
dalned minister of that organization.
Mr. Young was compelled to refuse the
icessary permission by reason of the lanlage
of the code, which provides that only
ily ordained ministers of a church, and In
mmunlon with the church, can be auorlsed
to perform the marriage ceremony,
lese facts must be certified by a bishop,
esldlng elder or some other authorized
perlor of the clergyman making appllca>n.

Some doubt is expressed at the city hall
i to whether or not the Salvation Army

score or more of persons who have checks
r notes in their possession for amounts
arylng from $25 to $50 are eagerly searchrig
for Julius Lindner, who until Thursay
last was employed by the United
Itaten srovernment as an interpreter of the
rtddlsh language for the bureau of lmmlTatlon
at Baltimore.
Lindner left the Immigration office on
'hursday last and since then no tidings
lave been received from him. Inquiries
.re being hourly made by those who hold
hecks or notes signed by him for amounts
rhlch will aggregate several hundred dolars.
Touching Letter to Wife.
The first intimation that Lindner had
led came through a note from his wife to
ne of Lindner's acquaintances. Inclosed
ri mia noie wus a tcuvr wnicu uiuuhci
>ad mailed to hla wife, who gave her adress
as 1637 Massachusetts avenue, Washngton,
D. C. The letter Is as follows:
"BALTIMORE. October 1?.
"Dear Wife: This Is the last time I will call
'ou that. I am ruined forever and am ru riling
away. I have ruined myself, have
ulned your life and have spoiled that of
ny daughter. Morphine and gambling have
>een my ruin.

lay you'll hear from me. I do not think I
lave committed any crime. If I have I'll
[111 myself before I'll submit to arrest.
Jood-by. Heartbroken GEORGE."
The letter was at once mailed by Mrs.
Jndner to a gentleman In Baltimore, and
ilmost simultaneously with Its receipt there
vere many Inquiries as to the whereabouts
if T.inflnftr
Creditors Seek Information.
Among the first to seek Information was
he keeper of a boarding house on West
rayette street, where Lindner had been
ivlnn- nlnpp his arrival in Baltimore. It
vas charged that Lindner was In debt for
>oard and, In addition, 6ecured several
iuma of cash.
From another person he is said to have
lecured $50 by telling the following story:
'I have decided to bring my family to Ballmore
to reside. My furniture is already
It the depot and I have rented a house.
Jnfortunately the furniture has arrived,
tnd I do not get my check from the governnent

company Is charging demurrage on
he car. It would be a gTeat favor to me
t you could let me have that amount until
get my check, and I will give you a note
or the sum."
The obliging: friend handed him over $50.
To a number of other victims he told
he same story, with the exception that in
leveral of the cases he produced checks on
i Washington trust company, which were
irawn to his order, and asked his victims

A Boston Pastel.
'Yom Harper's Magazine.
If you were to follow Tremont street
;hrough Scollay Square, past Tremont Row,
>nce delightfully reminiscent of old Boston
lays, and today swamped beneath the wild
fantasia of signs that reach from basement
:o chimney pot, shrieking to heaven in
laming orange paint each merchant's listed
vares, you might, after working your way
>ut of numerous alleys and somber streets
lch In historical legend, stumble upon the
ipot where Boston drops her prim formality
ind impenetrable reserve: for Tea Wharf,
he retrospective, stretches far out into the
jpalescent haze of the river, losing itself in
i confusion of spars and shrouds.
Along the broad quay moves a confused
nass of seamen and idlers; market hands
attle past pushing trucks; the whining cry
>f the Italian fisherman calling his wares
mingles with the hoarse shouts of seamen
ind the rattling of pulleys in their blocks
is baskets, crammed to overflowing with
:od and haddock, rise from the hold and
iwing out on the dock where marketmen,
pitchfork in hand, send them flying In a
;ontinuous cascade that empties itself Into
the ponderous carts that lie in waiting,
strung out along the wharf in long procession.
Tugs ply back and forth; great hunIred
and fifty tonners quietly slip their
moorings In twos and threes and move out
gracefully Into the stream, to De lmmeilately
unplaced by winners of a fleet whose
stragglers are still beyond Boston Light,
racing under a desperate head of sail for
the market and the advanced price paid for
the fresh "catch." The Italian dory fleet in
in almost oriental display of brilliant color,
still obstinately clinging to a Mediterranjan
rig of sail, hoists Its tattered canvas,
and with sails swelling and motors whirring
Is soon lost in a distant tremolo.
At every turn one meets with new reminders
of the sea's colossal harvest; tubs
3f fish, dories heaped with flsh, wagonloads
of flsh, tons of flsh; In actual figures
>ne hundred million pounds of ocean-caught
fresh flsh are delivered In Boston alone
from the Ashing schooners, to which may be
added forty millions more landed at other
points along the New England coast and

All that is picturesque and unconformable
to the chaste symmetry of captious Boston
seems to have found along these wharves
in outlet. The place reeks with persuasive
motives, and yet one may search in vain
from Commercial to Long Wharf for one
American artist busy with his work in this

The effort to transplant such a distinctly
lational product as a Drury lane spectacuar
piece to the boards of a foreign theater
8 so bold an experiment that one naturally
Wishes it every success. The experience of
Mr. Arthur Collins, however, whose "Cinlerella"
has just, been produced at the
rheatre de la Porte Saint Martin, clearly
shows the difficulties attending such a
iransfer, even when it is from one great ro
nantic and spectacular stage to another.

Unusual Number of Cases for Month 'j
It Is feared by the officials of the health
department that the typhoid fever record J
this week will be much higher than last j
week. According to the records thirtyfour
new cases of this disease have b?en reported
since 4 o'clock Friday afternoon and
up to 10 o'clock this morning, which number
Is looked upon as exceptionally high by
the officials. It Is expected that unless
there Is a sudden slump in the spread of
typhoid between now and Sunday night the
weekly record of typhoid will reach a total
of seventy new cases.
The particularly puzzling side to this sudden
increase in typhoid, according to Health
Officer Woodward, is the fact that this is
not what the physicians term typhoid season.
He pointed out that if there is any
typhoid noticeable during the summer
months it generally subsides toward the
latter part of September, and nothing of
any consequence is heard of it again until ^
the early spring. This year the disease pre- e
voilaH an nlnrmlnff extent for five months.
and In September the officials were gratified |
to notice that the disease began to wane, I
and they were much surprised, as well as j
perturbed, when it took a sudden jump j
about ten days ago. and has been steadily 1
increasing every since. I
Dr. Woodward stated that he and his as- (
slstants are resorting to every method In
their power to check the spread. Each new '
case as it is reported at the office is thor- (
oughly investigated by the inspectors, with
a view of learning its histor yand determining
upon the source of the infection.
According to the cases so far reported the I '
spread is not confined to any one neighbor- i
hood or to any class or age of persons, |
which makes the work of the health officials ^
more difficult. <
Question of Title Involved.
Galen E. Green was charged in the Police i
Court this morning with a violation of sec- i
tlon 847 of the District code. The charge I
is embodied in two counts, one alleging that |
Mr. Green entered upon the land of Cotter |
T. Bride and cut down twelve trees, valued i
at $2 each, and the second alleging that Mr. j :
Green entered on the land of Calvin Tibbs '
and tore up twenty tomato plants, each j *
valued at 50 cents. Attorney Ridout made !
a motion to quash the charge, claiming the 1
case was a trial of title and therefore not i f
properly brought in the court before which j
it was being heard, but Judge Mullowny i ^
overruled the motion. Green then pleaded '
not guilty and asked for a jury trial.
Last January, it Is stated, the land In
question was awarded by a decree of the I
Equity Court to Mr. Tibbs, and he later j
sold the property to Mr. C. T. Bride. Claim- ;
lng rights under a tax deed given several
years ago, it is stated, Mr. Greea entered
on the land and cut down the trees and tore
up the tomato vines.
The trial of the case has been continued

It is the fashion just now among the laity
and not a few medfcal men to affect a certain
supercilious Irony toward the bacteriologist.

too seriously. The findings of the modern
scientific hygienist are pushed aside with
this gentle ridicule, and the skeptic goes on
his way undisturbed by any fool notions
as to what he calls "bugs."
He pooh-poohs pasteurized milk, laughs at
boiled or distilled drinking water, goes out
of his way to let the barber know that he
doesn't want any "sterilization In his,"
wipes his mouth on the bar towel, uses the
common hairbrush In the wash room, and
would no doubt clean his teeth with the 1
public toothbrush If there was one. He Is,
in short, a. confirmed skeptic as to the danger
from germs, and no amount of proof
can change his opinions. He lives alone.
