Nearly the whole time of tha session of the United States Circuit Court was taken up yesterday with the hearing of the ar gument in the matter of the application of Mrs. Ellen A. Fife ( to return to the Superior Court the suit of herself against George .Whlttell for $790,000 damages for alleged . mismanagement of her share o,f ¦ the Nicholas Lunirig estate, the reason alleged for the application being that Whitteirhas not abandoned his residence in this State. William S. Wood of LJoyd & Wood made the principal argument for Mr. Whittell's contention that the- Federal Court had jurisdiction and sought' to show that Mr. Whittell had changed his residence to New York City and because that metropolis offered more opportunities than did San Francisco for the investment of capital and the enjoyment of the social amenities of life. Ex-Superior Judge Slack, for Mrs. Fife, quoted numerous decisions of the courts to show that a man could be a citizen of one State and a resident of 'another. Ho argued that Mr. Whittell's admission that he would continue to reside in San Fran cisco until the case was disposed of was a virtual acknowledgment of his residence here within the meaning of the law, so far as it affected the jurisdiction of the courts. Judge Morrow took the matter under advisement. AMUSEMENTS. SECOND AND LAST WEEK! CHARLES FROHMAX PRESENTS WILLIAM GILLETTE'S GREAT- EST COMEDY TRIUMPH.

WIRELESS TELEGBAPHY. . (Continued.) The "Work of Hertz. The idea of the electro-magnetic char acter of light was advanced by Clerk Maxwell about 1564. and the theory was fully developed In his book published in 1573. The identity in character of all other : waNes was generally accepted as a fact before it was demonstrated experiment ally, and many investigators had worked in thi3 direction In vain before the solu tion of the problem was hit upon by Hertz. ->kii . • \_ It is easy to. start waves In the ether. In fact almost any natural phenomenon starts them. The difficulty was In detect ing their presence when they lay outelde the range of light and heat effects. Bapid Discharges Oscillatory. When an electrically charged body is discharged the character of the- discharge depends upon the properties of the dis charging circuit. If that circuit has mag netic properties In any marked degree it acts as a- damper and the charge runs-off with comparative slowness as a current In one direction only. If. however, the magnetic properties are absent or of very small" value the electric charge surges rapidly out, past the point of equilibrium, then back again and oscillates in this way until the energy I has been dissipated as heat. A spark discharge, of which light ning Is. an example on the greatest scale known to" us, oscillates while it lasts at the rate of perhaps many million times a second and starts waves in ether of a cor responding frequency and length. The rate of oscillation depends upon the prop- ; erties of the discharging circuit and by a proper adjustment of that circuit the length of the wave may be regulated. _ The oscillatory character of such a dis charge was known many years before Hertz but as no method was known of detecting such ether waves In space the experimental investigation of their prop erties was impossible. Hertz discovered a method of detecting these wave 3, and armed with this detection he pushed through a rapid and thorough series of experiments which placed this branch of science at once on a sound basis of fact. Spark-Gap Detector. It was while experimenting with a pair of similar coils of wire Intended to show Induction effects, that Hertz noticed .that if a small Leyden Jar or small induction coil ; was discharged through one of the coils current could be induced In the other provided the circuits - were not complete. There must be a short < spark-gap. This spark gap in the first coil furnished the means for exciting the very, sudden dis turbance of the ether, and th y e second coil, similarly arranged, became. a detector of ether waves, responding most strongly to ether vibrations of its own natural period. . In all : his experiments Hertz made use of sympathetic or resonating action. The exciter was the spark passing between t wo • polished balls .on either , side of the break In discharging the circuit, which was fed by the action of an ; ordinary Ruhmkorff coil. The detector, or "elec trical eye," as Lord Kelvin has called it, was usually a simple rectangle or circle of zinc- In this wire , there was a break, with a knob or ball on each side, and the distance between the knobs could be reg ulated by a micrometer screw.' Although this detector t would respond within a con siderable range, ; the ¦ sparks reached a maximum i for a particular, adjustment at which the natural periods ; of < the exciter and' the detector .were the same. An Im provement "made by later :. investigators consists : In . keeping the spark terminals Immersed in oil. This prevents the rough enlng of the surface and seems to mak» the discharge more regular, probably by the same action as that of the electrolytic interruption. Properties of Ether "Waves. By means of these simple devices Hertz made a complete Investigation of tho properties of electric waves In the ether. He found that they were reflected by me tallic surfaces, but passed through wood and stone and other insulating sub stances; and he succeeded in refracting them by a great prism of pitch Just aa light is refracted by a prism of glassy Ha measured the length of waves and their speed, which was the same as that of light. In the coursff of a lecture deliv ered not long after this Lodge said, refer ring to ether waves of this kind: "They can be reflected by plane sheets of metal, concentrated by parabolic reflectors, re fracted by prisms, concentrated by lenses. I have at the college a large lens of pitch, weighing over three hundredweight, -for concentrating them to a focus. They can be made to show the phenomena of inter ference and thus have their wave lengths accurately measured. They are stopped by all conductors and transmitted by all Insulators. Metals are opaque, but even imperfect Insulators, such as wood or stone, are strikingly transparent, and waves may be received in one room from a. source in another, the door between the two being shut." '-.-Z'.'Z Space Telegraphy. This was the germ of space telegraphy In its present form. The wave is started by suitable apparatus, travels through tho ether with the speed of light and Is re ceived by other devices much more sensi tive than that used by Hertz. These will be described later. As the ether waves are absorbed by con ductors, the action In the usual method of signaling with wires is evidently only a special case, in which the ether waves* started at the transmitting end are re ceived by the.wire of the circuit, the di 3» turbance penetrating the wire from tho outside, and In this way a much larger proportion of the energy la U3ed where It Is wanted than In any system In which wire circuits are dispensed with. The two actions may be roughly compared to the transmission of sound waves from one point to another by shoutimc In the open air and by talking through a speaking tube. A method of signaling, through » pace which may.be considered to lie between the ordinary system with a wire circuit and the modern wireless telegraphy is that which has been used to signal movlnjr trains. The car containing the receiving apparatus was fitted with a wire running the length of the roof or the side, and tho message was transmitted from the pol» lipe running alongside the - track to th» wire on\the car by Induction through th« space separating the two. , This wa* the propagation of a true ether wave, differ ing from* the, latest methods chiefly in the period. and wave length of the disturb ance and In the sensitiveness and ar rangement of the apparatus responding to it. The development of the , method ¦ new generally designated by the name ''wire less telegraphy" will be described In th« next paper. . AMUSEMENTS.

Sugar Fleet Quarantined — The Bark Alaska to Take Passengers to Norne — Brig W. Q. Irwin Sold. Five vessels came in from the southern seas, one ship from Central America and another from New York yesterday. Of the island fleet four were sent into quarantine and will be kept there until fumigated. The only one that escaped was the schooner Eliza Miller from Apia, Samoa, with a cargo of copra. She made the run up in the good time of forty-eight days. The vessels put in quarantine were the German ship H. F. Glade, twelve and a half days; bark R. P. Rithet, eighteen days, and a schooner, twenty-seven days, all from Honolulu, and the bark C. D. Bryant, fifteen days from Lahaina,- H. I. All the vessels had fine weather through out, but the Glade got a fine slant of wind, which she carried with her nearly all the way to San Francisco. The British ship Jessomene made the run from Acapulco in thirty-three days. She came here in ballast and will load wheat for Europe. The other arrival was the American ship Susquehanna. This tine vessel made the run from New York here in the fast time of 114 days. The run to the equator in the Atlantic was made in 30 days. When 56 days out she was off Cape St. John and the next day passed the British ship Sierra Podrosa, now out 32$ days from Antwerp. The run from 50 in the Atlantic to 50 in the Pacific was made in 16 days and when 97 days Out the Susquehanna crossed the equator in the Pacific. From the equator to San . Fran cisco the run was made in 17 days, a splendid performance. • Soon after cross ing the equator on this side the Susque hanna ran into a number of severe squalls, accompanied by very heavy rain. A number of sails were blown away and some other damage done, but nothing se rious. ¦ j Captain M. T. Bailey, who commands the Susquehanna this trip, is well known in San Francisco. He was here last year as mate of the Erskine M. Phelps, with Captain Graham, .and made a host of friends. As master of the Susquehanna he has made a record for that vessel and shows, that the confidence of the owners in him was well placed. The steamer Cdquille River reports speaking the sealing schooner Alllo.l. Al ger on March 15 off Cape Blanco. The master of the schooner reported picking up a white skylight and a spring mattress and also having passed a quantity of lum ber. The Coqullle River subsequently passed the lumber between Cape Blanco and Umpqua. This is probably the deck load and wreckage washed overboard from the steamer Tillamook. The latter vessel is now at Hay & Wright's ship yard undergoing repairs and her captain reports losing just such stuff as was seen by the Allie I. Alger. — The rush to Nome has begun. The bark Alaska will be the first of the regular line to get away— on April 10. Gold-hunt ers are, fighting to get sleeping room on DESPONDENTAND BENT WITH PAIN HE CHOSE DEATH Milkman Ruhland Blew Out His Brains With a Shotgun. o Had Been Sick for a Year With an Incurable Disease and Finally Lost Both Hope and Courage. , » Christian Ruhland, a milkman, residing at 4306 Point Lobos avenue, blew out his brains with a shotgun yesterday after noon. -N He had been sick for a long time, and Dr. Lorina had been attending him for enlargement of the. heart for the past year, during the greater part, of which period Ruhland had been confined to hia bed. A few moments before the fatal shot was fired Mrs. Ruhland was in his room, and he said to her: "If a horse or a cow suffered as much as I do they would kill it to put it out of its misery." This re mark so affected Mrs. Ruhland that she burst into tears. , A few minutes later Mrs. Ruhland went downstairs tc get some firewood, and while thus engaged she was startled by the report of a shotgun. Rosie Ruhland, who was in the kitchen preparing dinner, ran into her father's bedroom and saw his dead body on the floor in a great pool of blocd. At his feet lay the shotgun. The • whole of the upper portion of hia head was blown away. Ruhland had got out of bed, sat on the window sill, placed the muzzle of the shotgun in his mouth and pressed the trig ger of the right-hand barrel with his toe. Deceased was a native of Germany, 63 years old. He leaves a widow, two daugh ters and a son, the children all ijrown. He had been a partner in the ' Richmond dairy with a man named Zimmerman. The remains were taken to the Morgue, and an inquest will be held. her, but Captain Cogan will not take an other passenger for love or money. Those going north on the Alaska are D. R. Dwyer and a party of eight- from Seattle; L. Herman, S. Marsen, C. Ross and a party of eight from Oakland; J. Y. Thompson, Tom Marsden, M. Cham pion, R. Champion; 8. H. Johnson and wife, J. W. Poston and wife, H. Fielder, M. Mulane, C. A. Anderson, H. Asmus, D. W. Bass, J. N. Thompson, J. P. S. Johnson, Gustafe Anderson, A. Sogren. J. Doud, J. Dahl and two others, and C. E. Westlake. A man named John Schuyler, of the Schuyler Hardware Company at Ocean side, wrote asking for a berth, but Cap tain Cogan sent him back word there was no berth left: Yesterday Captain Cogan received a letter saying Schuyler was coming anyhow, and would take his chances of getting away on the ves sel. On the whole bark there is only room left for fifty tons of freight, and that will fill up in a day or two. There will therefore be no trouble in getting the vessel away on time. If the Alaska does not make a quick run to Nome it will not be for lack of experienced Arctic navigators. Along with Captain Cogan goes Captain Lew Williams and Captain Green. These men have spent nearly all their lives in the frozen north and know every turn like a book. The transport Columbia will move from Folsom to Harrison street, and the War ren will go alongside the Missouri to-day. The remains of the dead soldiers were taken off the Duke of Fife yesterday and that vessel will dock at Union street to day, while the Hancock and Grant will both dock at Folsom street. The Grant will sail for Manila on May 1. The barkentine Catherine Sudden, now fitting out for the Nome trade. -is going to take north thirty surf boats, each of one ton capacity. A company formed here is going into the lighterage busi ness and is sending the surf boats north for that purpose. ¦ Another of the Spreckels fleet of sugar boats has been sold. Yesterday the brig William G. Irwin was purchased, by Scammell & King for the Nome trade. The Irwln is now on nor way here ana on her arrival will be turned over to her new owners. The Spreckels Bros. Co. is selling all Its small vessels, and will re place them with large four-masted schooners. One of these, the Helene, Is now on her maiden trip in command of Captain Christensen, late of the brig J. D. Spreckels. • . „. '" . The new schooner Churchill, built at Coos Bay for; A. M. Simpson, is expected here in a few days. Some years ago Mr. Simpson announced that with- the com pletion of a barkentine then on the stocks he would stop building vessels. Following out this plan, the barkentine was named Omecra. Some years later Mr. Simpson built another vessel, thus break ing his resolution. This schooner he christened Addenda, and now comes still another fine big vessel which he will call The steamer Newport sailed for Central American ports yesterday with a very large cargo and quite a number of pas sengers in the cabin.

Note. — These lessons have been prepared for The Call's Home Study Circle by Professor Benno Klrsehbaum of Philadelphia. They are intended . primarily for Americans who pur pose attending the Paris Exposition. The les sons will Include (1) common French words and phrases, (2) easy conversation and (3) simple reading lessons. __„ LESSON NO. 5. Something About Pronunciation. ¦- 1. There are certain vowels which, though double, as ai, eu, ou, etc.. have the sound of only one vowel. Theso vowels, when double, are called "compound vo-w els." The most important of these are: al, ae. are pronounced like ai in hair, as clalr (light), clare; bouteille (bottle), boo tay. au, eau, are pronounced like o in note, as aurpre (morning glow), oh-rore. eu, oeu, are pronounced like v in but, as peuple (people), pup-le; soeur (sister), suhr. ou is pronounced like oo In wood, as route (road), root. A Few Practical Hints. 2. As there are but ' two genders In French, masculine and feminine, ihings which are neuter in English are either masculine or feminine in French. It id hard to give a positive rule as to which nouns are masculine and which feminine. We will try to give as far as possible a guide to gender in each lesson. In case of doubt, however, consult your dictionary and memorize the noun with its proper article. 3. The following few useful notes will materially aid the student in confronting some difficulties he will meet. Therefore remember that — (a) the name of God and all supernat ural beings are masculine. God; Dieu; dee-yeu. Angel; l'ange; ang-zj. Demon; le demon; day-mong. (b) nouns which designate man m his different conditions are also masculine. Brother; le frere; frare. •/. > Soldier: la eoldat; sol-dah. (c) furthermore, nouns designating the males of animals, as Horse; le cheval; chev-val. Lion; le lion; lee-ong. (d) the seasons and cardinal points are masculine. The spring; le printemps; luh pran tong. The summer; l'ete; lay-tay. The fall; I'automne; 10-tonne. The winter: Thiver; lee-vair. The north: le nord; luh nor. The south; le sud; luh suud. The east; Test; lest. The west; l'ouest; l'west. In the next lesson we shall give a few similar notes regarding feminine nouns.
