ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 12.— The ghost of
William J, Florence, an actor, figured in
the testimony introduced to-day in the
suit of Charles L. Bates for divorce. In
the depositions recently taken In San
Francisco It had been testified that Mrs.
Bates, an ardent spiritualist, had made
love to the dead actor's •spirit,, and had
said she was engaged to marry him Mn
the next world. These statements, sworn
to in one Instance by Mrs. Louise C. Pat
terson, a daughter from San Francisco,
were read in court to-day. Evidence was
given by James Edward Reeves which
created interest. Letters written by Mrs.
Bates to Reeves when he was only \ 20
years old and the writer 47 years old and
the mother of several children were read.-
The letters addressed young: Reeves as
"My darling" nrd expressed the deepest
affection. They also spoke, In terms of
contempt of Bates. '¦'msWSmm^M^W

quently.- He had written to Mrs. Bates
while she wns In. New York upon the

..Chief Sanitary Inspector Chalmers pre
sented a report, in which he stated that
the. Chinese in the quarantined district
were disposed' to resent. the orders of the
board and- to disobey the sanitary notices
issued by the Health Department. Chal
mers said 'he feared violence on the part
of the Mongolians, especially if the case
now pending in the United States Circuit
Court be decided in favor of the board.
He requested that police protection be af

Sullivan. will be requested to detail addi
tional patrolmen In and- around China

Governor Gage held a long consultation
last night with the doctors in the employ
of the Six Companies and the Chinese.
L>rs. Anderson. Plllsbury and Powers were
present and went over the matters that
have come under their investigation very
thoroughly with the OoVernor. They
sought in every way to make it clear to
the chief executive of the State that the
plague does not now and never has existed
in Chinatown. .To prove their. statements
they -produced -affidavits and all sorts of
evidence that would be likely to carry
weight. The Governor listened attentive

no opinion. He refused afterward to be

the pecuniary damage to their business

The Secretary declared that not only had

merely acted as a medium through which

To-day Judge Morrow In the United

brought by several Chinese to restrain
the Board of Health from continuing the
quarantine In Chinatown, from preventing
the surgeons employed by the Six Compa
nies from attending the autopsies on sus

make a complete showing as to their rea

done In regard to the Chinese in the al

"The petitioner is released," said the
Judge. "Adjourn court until 10 o'clock

Judge de Haven said further that the
Board of Health had no right to restrict
the liberty of any person who had not
come into direct contact with the plague,
no matter what district of "the city he
came from. He left with his auditors
the impression that he would release any
Chinese or white person from -the so
called infected district unless it could be
shown that he had been in direct contact
with -what was proved to be..the.plague.

Supervisors yesterday urging immediate
acceptance of the Hall of Justice building
and protesting strongly against any fur

In reference to the acceptance by the city of

attention to the fact that at a recent meeting
of the Committee on Public Buildings the City
and County Attorney stated that the building
can legally be accepted at the present tlm«

urged by the Auditor that the bulldtnsr be

to the fact that over *275,00O has been expended
in the construction and furnishing of this
building which at the present date Is ready

is not only a hardship upon the property owners
In the vicinity, but It is a ridiculous position
for the city to occupy — that is. to expend this
vast sum of money for the construction of the

Another communication from the asso

It Is as follows:
We •wish to earnestly protest against any
action to be taken by your honorable board
to prevent the occupation of the Hall of Justice
by all of the criminal courts previously desig

these criminal courts, and to pay the Wast it

to poison the Chinese, and an excited mob
repaired at once to the offices of the Six
Companies to make complaint. It was
¦with some difficulty that they were con
vinced that the discolored meat would
have no bad effects upon them.
Another small-sized riot occurred during
the afternoon on Sacramento street. A
mob of 250 Chinese gave a man who was
posting bulletins concerning Judg-c de
Haven's order a rough handling, but they
did no particular harm. Last night
t'hinatown was quiet. Judge de Haven's
decision had the effect of giving the Chi
nese conlidence that their attorneys
would pull them through without further
trouble, and they were willing to await
the outcome of the case that will come
before the court to-day. They are cer
tain the court will give the order to raise
the odious quarantine. •
The Board of Health still Is skirmish
ins for something upon which to continue
the quarantine. Bacteriologists Kellogg
and Breyfogle reported to the board yes
tt-rday a suspicious case at 21 Stone street,
which they diaRnosed as "plague-pneumo
nia." What "plague-pneumonia" may be,
however, has not been explained.
IMstrict Court Proceedings.
United States District Judge de Haven
made short work of the plague fakers in
the matter of the habeas corpus petition
of Chun Ah Sing, the cook, who alleged
that he had gone Into Chinatown on May
29 one hour prior to the quarantine, and
had been connned within the quarantine
limits ever since. J. J. Dunne appeared
In the morning for the Health Board, and
when the court asked for the "corpus"
that was to be "habeased," Mr. Dunne
Teplied that owing to the fact that the
population of Chinatown was between
2U,UOO and 25,000 the board had not had any
opportunity of making his acquaintance
and were unable to produce him.
Messrs. Campbell, Shortrldge, Ferral,
Kehoe and Bennett, attorneys for the
petitioner, agreed to furnish the board
with the address of the cook so that they
might be able to make the proper return
to the writ. The court took a recess until
2 o'clock in the afternoon, the Judge re
marking at the same time that he did
not propose to go into the whole matter
of the quarantine: that the case was an
application on habeas corpus, and that if
the averments of the petition with regard
to the petitioner were proved he would
discharge the cook.
At 2 o'clock the cook was in court with
abo'it 100 of his countrymen. Mr. Camp
bell proceeded to read his demurrer to the
return of the Health Board, but the court
cut him short for the purpose of saving
time The counsel then introduced an
affidavit from Mrs. Annie Davis of 733
Bush street to the effect that Chun Ah
Sing was her cook and that he lived in
her house. He went on May 29 to vtBit a
friend In Chinatown and was caught in
the quarantine. Sing's affidavit followed.
He swore that he did not see a dead per
son during the whole 'of ,the time of his
confinement, nor did he s*e a sick per.«on,
and he was not sick himself.
"How do we know," asked Charles L.
Weller. "that this Is the man for whom
Two brothers who had not seen each
other for twenty years previously met yes
terday afternoon in the Uroadway Jail.
One of them had boen arrested for swear
ing falsely to a pension paper and the
other had been brought here as a witness
by the Government to testify against the
prisoner. The meeting was mingled with
humor and pathos, but the latter became
paramount when the brother accused of
crime resolved to plead guilty and taku
the consequences, rather than hear u:n
words that would condemn him spoken by
one of his own kin in the witness stand.
Peter Morgan Ashley Smith-Crane, who
resides on the Round Valley Indian reser
vation and whose wife is an Indian, was
brought to this city by a deputy Marshal
yesterday. His brother, also going by the
name of Smitli-Cracc, was a veteran of
the civil war and it was alleged that the
man under arrest signed papers declaring
that he was his brother, in order to se
cure the pension which was coming to the
veteran. The Federal authorities located
the person entitled by law to the pension
in Belleville, Illinois, and he was brought
here under subpena,
Yesterday a meeting was arranged be
tv.'een the two. When they came face to
face In the office of the jail it ¦was the
Jirst time they had seen each other since
tiny parted on the old farm in Illinois.
The man under arrest believed hi? brother
dead and the cross-examination he
eubjecic-d him to before he shook his
hand was one of the humorous features
of the affair. After Peter had Fettled the
fact as to his brothers identity both wept
and discussed the case.
"It'e a. lonf; time since I've seen you,"
i?aid the veteran, "but If you've done
wrorg stand up and take your medicine
like a man. Go to prison, brace up, and
when you get out I'll take you back to
the old farm to live with me."
Peter objected to going back to the old.
farm, as he had a wife and family to sup
port on the Indian reservation, but he
concluded that his brother's view of the
situation wrus thr- correct one and agreea
to accept it. The thoupht that his own
brother would be forced to deliver testi
mony against him wounded him more
than anything else and he concluded not
lo make any legal contest.
"I don't believe 1 ousrht to be turned
loose." he said. "I ought to gret bumped
a little. It would U-ach me some sense.
I've got to work anyway, and I mipht as
well try a hand in San Quentin as not.

JUDGE DE HAVEN of the United
States District Court practically de
cided yesterday that unless a per
son, whether Asiatic or American,
had come In direct contact with the
plague he could not be legally detained
within the quarantine lines drawn about
Chinatown. This decision will probably
have the effect of putting an end to the
quarantine of the district and will force
the Board of Health to abandon its plan
to keep the quarantine for another ten
days. Attorneys who have been employed
to bring habeas corpus proceedings for
the release of certain Chinese detained
within the lines are resting on their oars,
expecting the quarantine to be lifted be
fore they can act.
Yesterday another riot was nearly pre
cipitated in Chinatown by the accidental
discovery that the sulphur fumes from
the disinfected sewers had escaped Into
some of the markets in the district and
had impregnated the meats offered for
sale there. A cook had placed a silver
coin on a piece of meat and the coin had
turned black. Immediately the cry was
raised that the whites were attempting

With remarkable rapidity the flames
spread to a large structure In the rear of
the paint shop which is occupied as a
etable by the Tesla Coal Company. In
the stable wrre a number of valuable
horses and it was with considerable dlf-
Ilculty that they were saved from being
burned to death. Several streams were
rapidly brought to bear on the burning
structure and In a short time the flames
were extinguished.
How the nre started Is a mystery to
Chief SuUivan and his men. It is thought,
however, that the blaze was caused by
coinbustibles in the paint shop.
While the lire was in progress Thomas
Tlius. a memt.er of Engine Company No.

verely injured. He was taken to his home
in the putrol wapon. where he was attend

rf the most unlucky members of the
Fire Department. While known as a fear-
