There was a tragic ending to th divorce suit of Barah M James against W E James The decree was recorded in heaven sparing Judge Vagnire the necessity of adding on more to tbe long list of eases of severing th bonds that God had Joined for eternity The case la one of more than usual interest and is rather like a leaf fmm a modern romance than an actual event in real life But it is too real W James came to California about 1870 He was an expert photographer and one of the first and most successful instantaneous operators Be worked for House worth flrt and then forTaber On coming to this coast he left behind blm in the East a handsome and intelligent young wife with a number of little children At first the letters and tbe remittances were prompt and satisfactory By and by they ceased altogether Then came word to the patient young wife that her husband while at work in the Yosemite valley had fallen ever on of th great dins and lost his ate She believed the story and considered herself a widow and her little ones orphans She remained Id this belief until two years ago when she eame to San Francisco and met ber husband spon the streets Tbe surprise was mutual Tbe husband had in the mean time taken to his heart another There wu no reconciliation Of six children all bnt two bad died These two are boys now well on toward manhood noble sterling young men the staff and the consolation of the mother Btonny sceittl ensued between these boys and tb lathan and between taem and the woman who bad usurped the place that belonged to their mother James was not dead to the wrong he bad committed His conscience wss not callous Tbe presence of the wife of his youth and the traits of that union the rwo bright boya were too much for blm lie took to drink and left the city Latterly he bat lived in San Jose Horn time since his wife Sarah began an action for divorce The case came up yestet ay in Judge Maguires Court ani that magiktrate was about to grant the decree when he wss Interrupted by the announcement that tbe respondent had Just died at San Jose The stillness of death reigned o ver the courtroom as tbe dispatch was read and the case was continued The powers of earthly courts had been anticipated by the Great Judge on high His trouble weighed on James mind and he took to drink He grew more and more despondent and yesterday ended his life by taking poison He leaves a womau who claims to be his wife and one child in Ean Jose That wife is the daughter of James King the poundmaster at ban Jose The wife of his youth resident in this city is a daughter of the late William q Robinson of Kew York city Though not possessed of any real estate it is believed that James Is worth considerable money end the e are chances that the romantic story may be fully told In the courts at no distant day BATES ON VrOOI fetltlon to the Interstate Commerce Commission A meeting of wool - dealers wu beld at the Board of Trade rooms yesterday afternoon the object being to take action retarding the recent increase in rates 3t freight on wool between Pacific ccast points and the Eastern market The new rate Used at the conference of railroad managers and agents is 3 70 whereuthe old rates were only 62 eents to New York This it Is held Willi make a difference to the wool - raisers of tbe Pacific coast ni oOU000 on the spring clip alone and another 400000 on tbe fall clip In stating the object oi the meeting John H Wise said that the claue in the rate sheet relating to long and - short hauls effected wool more than any other product In tbe case of Califor nia fruits and wines tae effect is different These products Dot being shipped In such quantities from intermediate points ou the lines of transportation the same competition does not exlstu in the case of wool which la shipped from almost every station on tbe roads between California aod New York The long haulers are therefore at a dleadrautaye wnich threatens tu cripple the industry by driving all tbe small dealers from the field of cometl tton In order to advantageonsly market the wool product of this coast it Isneies - aary he said to get the s ring clip In no later than the middle of July or before the Western wool is tent forward As this cannot be done by shipment by eea four months being required to make the trip around Cap Horn all the transportstlon must be done by rail Tbe purpose oi tbe railroads u they claim in raising the wool rate Is to protect the short - haulers or the shippers at immediate points ThU position is shown to be untenable by the fact that the products of tbe different points along the lines of transportation are all sent forward at oiffereot aearons and the short - bsul men could not therefore be effected in the least by the rates fixed for California Tbe sitnation wu dtsenssed at length by thoe preot at the meeting who are interested in the wool trade and a committee was appointed to telegraph s complaint to the Interstate Commerce Commissioners and follow that up with a petition asking for the suspension of the clause relating to long - and - short hauls on wool for four months This committee is composed of J H Wise of the Commercial Insurance Company G hairmau K D Hume of Hume tt Co J E Shubert Eugene Avy and H F Parks They will wait upon the railroad people this morning to see what If any relief they are willing to give The result of this conference will be reported to a meeting ot the wool men to be held some time during the present week and such other action will then be taken in the premises u may be deemed advisable THREE INDICTMENTS The Grand Jnry Begins to Investigate Supervisorial Hatters The County Grand Jnry wu In session yesterday afternoon After two hours deliberation three indictments were filed In Judge Murphys Court Two were for felonies and the other misdemeanor Bail wu fixed in the sum of 2000 each on the felony charges and SlOoO for the misdemeanor One of the persons indicted was ex -

looking heroic actor he hu a superb baritone voice which hu been trained fot and li remarkably suited to romantic opera There is nothing Involved about the music or the plot aud Werner hu the beauty aud melody of It for the most part He is a wandering musiclsn wbo carries a trumpet and It ii one of the pretty features of Kaisers compel tl on that the trumpet off the stage produces several of the prettiest muslcsl effects The generous and enthusiastic applause which followed Rathjena all through last night testified to the unqnali - fled pleuure the audience derived from his singing The second act with Its lovely duet between Werner and Margsr - ethe and Its charming farewell song of Werner wu ss complete a musical success u hu beeu heard here for a long time s Selma Kronhold Is a different singer in The Trumpeter from what she wu in Tbe Beggar Student She hu a fire clear powerful voice and In the flowing music of the opera she - showed a sympathetic quality and a finished training which made her a perfect companion for tbe heroic baritone The best music lying between those two the honors fell moot distinctly to them But when Felix Schnelle laying uide all his character comedy came out u a romantic youth with a tenor voice very telling In the - wldely different chool of music and Otto Meyer ung with great dignity and taste the pert of the Magistrate while the chorus seemed to be as much at home there u In the comic opera some idea wu given of tbe enormous advantages the German stage hu over theAmerican In the matter of school ing Herman Gerold made a lair Count and Paula von Varndal Elsbach and Camilla Clairmont appeared in unimportant roles The opera bu a great deal of clever as well u charming music The concerted numbers are in pieces brilliant and the orchestration is throughout beautiful and effective The finale to the second act la one of the prettiest in opera The Trumpeter hu beeu ordered out of tbe cutie for loving tbe daughter of the Count The chorus hu a lively number fun of warlike spirit for there Is going to be a battle Suddenly the chorus stops the Trumpeter Is heard playing the air be hu nt snn and on thil the curtain falls The libretto is even more stupid than tbe usual but that doe not matter The Trumpeter of Sacklngen la well worth hearing Tbe Bush -

standing up at the back of tbe theater and for the rest the lavish applause and laughter during the evening spoke for themselves The company is a large one but not large With rapid changes and widely differing varieties of entertainment they keep up the excitement without a break The programme began with two Irish comedians aod May Howard followed with songs Both were successful The bar performers received a very demonstrative acknowledgment from all parts of the bouse McAvoy and H alien Ella Wesoer Mile Eichierette and Polly McDonald gave enough variety of a very clever kind Hallen and Hart the proprietors of the show were very heartily received aud John Dyllyn wu welcomed quite affectionately by the gallery who sympathised with him In a sore throst One of the best acts wu that Bryant a very humorous negro comedian and Uxsie Richmond The Luclers are a clever musical quartet The most notable performance however wu Baggesen the human corkscrew When a man can turn bis body around aod keep bis feet straight In the opposite direction and walk be is out of the usual and If Mr Baggesens head is attached to bis body by bit skin which he makes It appear to be he 1 certainly a phenomenon A number of doctors examined Mr Baggesen on Sunday and they cam to the conclusion that some night he wonld screw his body off bis legs or turn hit bead off his shoulders or something The show seems to please that wide taste for amusement which hu always madeagood variety performance popular here There wu no change ot bill either at the Alcuar the California or the Tivoll lut nlgbt The business wu generally good The Mirror of Ireland is at the Standard To -
