No other motive can be conceived for the murder. Charles Lux's Will. San Francisco, March 21.—Tho will of tbe late Charles Lnx was filed in the Superior Court at Redwood City to-day.

The Yacht Dauntless Met at, Sea. New York Protesting Against Irish Coercion. Associated Press Dlsuatches to tbe H skald. New York, March 21.— The World will say to-morrow that the flight of Walter E. Lawton, tho guano-tnau, was probably precipitated by the discovery of the fact that, after having given mortgages in ISS4 aggregating $300,300 on some brick clay land at Little Ferry, New Jersey, where the mortgages re mained unrecorded, because of the confi dence in him, he sold the land March lOthlastto the New Jersey and New York Brick Company, in return for which he got 950 of the company's $1000 bonds and $1,000,000 of its stock, and to secure the bonds the land was mortgaged for the full n nount again and the mortgage recorded.

Lawton, the guano magnate, made the that estimate to-day that has been attempted, of how much the creditors will receive out of Ihe wreck. Attachmonti reach a total of §510,"51. Kling thinks the assets will bo about $400,000, nnd assumes that the creditors will receive about 75 per cent, cf their claims. He considers Law-ton's Cat tail Island the principal as set, but this already has $1,250,000 worth of mortgages. It is expected that the legal battle to determine which of the various morlgages on the island shall take precedence will bo one of the inter esting complications that is certain to arise out ot this mysterious affair. A MEDDLING PHYSICIAN, Who Thinks that Cleveland Needs His Advice Badly. Washington, March 21.—Dr. Z. T. Sowers, one of the most prominent phy sicians of Washington, in an interview with a reporter to-day, declared that there is danger that President Cleveland will not live through his term, unless there is a change in his mode of living. Dr. Sowers, six months before Manning's illness, made the same prediction with regard to the Secretary, and advised his friends to warn bim of his danger. In aa interview to-day Sowers says: "It may be deemed impertinent to talk to.tho President through newspapers, hut I know of no other way of reaching him, und those about him, surely. You recall tny attempts with the friends of Manning and their fruits. Ido not feel tbat I should iako the same chances in this matter. lam personally apprised of the President's condition, and, while it is iv no sense dangerous, it will not be long before there will be reason for alarm. President Cleveland is a large and fleshy man aud since ho came to the White House has gained enormously in flesh. Now when he lived in Buffalo it was his habit to take long walks Since he came here, however, he has abandoned every exercise save carriage riding, and that is of little or no use with tbe springs now in use and the smooth streets for which Washington ia famous. The President is a man who works with his head a great deal, he is in fact an inteuse brain worker. He is in other worta a plodder and his brain is consequently filled with an excess of blood, and what is tho result? He works with his head, eats enorm ously aud fails to exercise his muscles; his blood vessels are weak ened and it is only v question of time, when in a moment nf excitement he bursts a blood vessel. I tell you, at the rate President Cleveland is now living there is great danger that he will not live through his term. -Something should be done to bring him to realise his danger and take the proper steps to prevent a result which will surely ensue if he fails to take the proper exercise. What I should recommend would be the fixing up of v room in the White House where he could devote half au hour every (lay to gymnastic exorcise. That alone, in my opinion, will prevent a calastrophe, tho avoidance of which not only tbe Prosident, but the country at large, is interested iv securing. ENDORSING til. ADSTONE.

Muenck cafled for cheers for the Emperor, for th. victorious commander in glorious bat tles, for tbe beloved father of his country, for the author of tho union of German races, for the defender of the frontiers of the Empire, for the guardian of the peace of the world. The applause was tremendous, and waa followed by the singing of the national anthem, the Emperor remaining standing, bowing with evident gratification. The pre cession then marched past the palace. Tho whole scene was most brilliant. The students cheered loudly at Bis marck's palace, where the Chancellor, Count Herbert Bismarck and Count Rantzen were awaiting the procession. Iv response to the calls of the students, Bismarck opened his window and bowed his thanks. A similar ovation was tendered Yon Moltke at tbe offices of the General Staff.

After referring to the dissolution of the Reichstag he questioned many students separately as regarding their birthplace, the studies they pur sued, tbe number of terms they had completed, tbe corporation to which they belonged. The Empress also ex pressed her thanks for the ovations. At 11 o'clock when tbe Cuirassier regiment came to relieve the guard at the palace, the thousands who still remained burst into enthusiastic cheering which con tinued so long that at last the Emperor came to tho window again and thanked tbe people.

Through the palace windows were obtained views of the splendid scene within. The clear, starry sky, and tbe light glimmering in all directions threw weird effecis of light and shale on the archi tec'nre of the palace and the massive buildings of tbe university opposite. Suddenly the blaze of light ranged along in frout of the building, and the gleams of t! mo shot from the stars and crowns decorating the front iacales; then the scene changed and a deep, rcse-colorcd light shone out from the gardens and flooded the whole building. Presently the procession was seen approaching in perfect silence. The students marched five abreast; they were attired in a pic turesque dress and carried a bnre sword in one band and a torch in the other. Iv the line wero banners of old Germau towns. Two students, dressed iv the nniform of Yon Wnllenatein's soldiers, headed the procession. Then came others on horseback, followed by the Ziethen Hus-:ars, with powdered peri wigs, white corded coats and cocked huts, surmounted with white ai grettes, their baud playing a simple tune tf tho Middle Ages with a touching effect in the still night air. When they reached the Emperor's window the Hussars wheeled back and the torches, were seen moving in differ ent directions, turning in and out like will-o'-the-wisps. This was repeated sev eral times with increased effect, the torches ciroling and crossing as in an ancient war-danco to tbe sounds of soft old-world music, now approaching and then fading away in the distance. While the procession of students was passing the palace the multitude bared their beads, and cheers became wilder and wilder until the Emperor, overcome with emotion, was compelled to with draw. The procession passed through town to an open space, where the students sang the hymn, "Gaudeamus Igitur Juvenes Dam Sumus," In the rear of the procession was a long row of carriages containing deputations from German and foreign universities. Among the numerous birthday rumors it is reported that the Grand Duke of Baden will be made King of Baden and Bismarck created Duke of Lauderburg.

It is said that Mr. Wallace refuses to be quarantined, and persists in circulating among the neighbors when he has come directly from his infected family. The matter was brought to the attention of the Board of Supervisors yesterday, and a motion was made that Mr. Wallace be confined to his house during the contin uance of smallpox in his family, and arrested if necessary. A question was raised aa to whether the man cculd bo confined unless he had committed some statutory offense. Deputy District Attorney Denis Baid that he would give the Boatd a written opinion at its meet ing to day. Chairman Rowan said that stringent measures should be adopted with a man who would deliberately leave a house infected with smallpox and go among people who were liable to con tract the disease from him.

The Board of Supervisors yesterday oreated a flutter among tbe Constables. Ed Smith put in a bill for mileage and expenses in going to San Diego after a prisoner, for whom he had a warrant issued by Justice Austin. The sum amounted to $60.70 and the Supervisors refused to allow it, claiming that they could only allow demands for mileage and expenses within the county. Smith says that he will sue the county for the amount of bis bill, and says furthermore that when he brings in a prisoner here after, the prisoner will live on bacon and branch water if Smith has to pay for it. The Board also disallowed all claims of Constables for arrest iug vagrants, unless it was proven that the vagrants were arrested on war rants. Smith had fourteen cases of this character. All of Constable Aguirre's oases of vagrants arrested without warrant were also disallowed, and be has many more than fourteen cases of tbat character. At last accounts there was an indigna tion meeting being held by the Consta bles' forces, with Will Ham moll in tho chair. A resolution was offered that a flank movement be made on the Board of Supervisors, and it met with favora ble consideration. The tramps and va grants are jubilant aud will resist an offi oer to the bitter end unless he produces a warrant. The average tramp will obey | a warrant quicker than he will a six ' shooter any time. The San Francisco Quarantine. Hr. H. MoLellan, ugent of the Paoific Coast Steamship Company, received a dispatch yesterday stating that there waa ' no trnth in the report that vessels from San Pedro would ho quarantined at Sam Francisco. The authority from whence the report came, has not denied it as yet and it seems a question of veracity be tween the steamship company and the Associated Press. It certainly seems strange that the San Francisco Board of Health should quarantine steamship lines aud allow emigrant and other earn to enter that city withont question There is method iv the madness ot Ben Francisoo and it all emanates from tbe jealousy she bears towards her poshing young rival—Los Angeles. A promi nent businessman said yesterday: "The Board of Trade should have a meettng and pass a resolution that it is tbe senso of that body that the merchants of Los Angeles would subserve the best interests of Southern California by giving their trade to merchants other than the I wholesale merchants of San Franoitco. A resolution of this character westsd I have a great deal of moral effect unjO 'carry weight." 3 NO. 151. FOREIGN. Personal Mention.
