WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.The following cir
cular was issued this afternoon by the surgeon
general of the marine hospital service, depart
ment of the United States treasury:
OFFICE SURGEON GENERAL, UNITED STATES
MARINE HOSPITAL SERVICE, WASHINGTON, Sept.
30, 1878.To the Chambers of Commerce and
Boards of Trade of the Cities of New
York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Chi
cago, St, Louis, and Cincinnati: Soon after
the yellow fever appeared in Memphis, several
leading citizens of that city applied to the
President to appoint a committee to investi
gate and report upon the danger and progress
of the epidemic." The President would have
taken prompt action in the matter
had there been any appropriation available
^w^r3?j ravf^y^sgt-K^g*-' a,*igj*
for such a ""commission. Fortunately
a noble lady, Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson, of
New York, actuated by the same motives that
prompted the citizens of Memphis, addressed
me asking what she could do toward the great
end in view and pledged an amount to
start a general subscription for the purpose.
My reply led her to Bay that she would, if
necessary, contribute sufficient to meet the
expenses of a commission provided I would
promptly undertake its organization and direct
a thorough investigation of the causes of the
epidemic, with the view of preventing such
deplorable visitations of yellow fever in the
In view of the foregoing, and acting upon
the advice of members of the Amerioan public
health association, an organization represent
ing all sections of our countrv, I have appoint
ed Prof. S. W. Bemiss, M. D", of New Orleans,
Jerome Cochrane, M. D., of Mobile, and a third
member whosf acceptance has not yet been re
ceived, to act as such commission. Dr. Elisha
Harris, president of the American public health
association, has consented to ipin the yellow
fever commission in the field about the 20th of
October. Should the contributions of money
be sufficient, or congress so diiect, two or three
scientific experts will be attached to the com
mision for the purpose of extending your line of
inquiiy as far as practicable and useful into
the nature and causes and conditions governing
the disease itself.
I have instructed the commissiou that the
great object of the investigation should, be to
glean all the important facts possible to be ob
tained which have reference to measures of
prevention of future epidemics. The work will
be commenced at New Orleans, and as many as
possible of the afflicted cities and towns will be
visited before -the 19th of November next
on which day the American Public
Health association will convene in special
session to review the facts which the commis
sion shall have gathered up to that time. With
the view of determining the best course to be
pursued by the commission, including its
labor, being charged with the execution of the
national quarantine act, approved April 19th,
1.478, I shall submit a report of the commission
to the secretary of the treasury to be transmit
ted to Congress by the President.
Mr. George W. Rii^gs, of fligga & Co., bank
ers, Wf shington City, has consented to act as
treasu' er to receive and disburse funds con
tributed, which will be devoted exclusively to
expenses of the commission, and be publicly
accounted for. Should you desire to assist in
defiaying the expenses of this undertaking, I
beg to request that I may be advised of the
contributions forwarded to Mr. lliggs for this
purpose. I am, very respectfully,

Appeals for Assistance.
BATON ROUGE, Sept. 30.The Howard
association and Mayor make the
following statement and appeal: "We thought
ten days ago that the generous and munificent
response to our appeal for help for our needy
suffereis would hive more than supplied our
wants, but it is apparent now that unless we
receive mere assistance there will be great
suffering in our midst. While we have been
fortunate compared to other places in our
death list, we have had over 1,100 cases of
yellew fever, many of which we are satisfied
would have proved fatal had it not been for
tho timely aid extended us from abroad. Our
reports for several days past show an average
of over fifty new cases daily. Our means are
nearly exhausted, and without assistance there
will be great loss of life and suffering.
NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 30.The Orleans central
relief committee met at the custom house at 11
o'clock, a large number of gentlemen and ladies
ot the various charitable associations being
present. The report of the committee regard
ing the distribution of rations from the gov
ernment was read and adopted. A preamble
and resolutions were adop ed setting forth that
the destitution and suffering is constantly in
creasing that the issue of rations had been dis
continued by the secretary of war because of
the impression prevailing that sufficient funds
are in the hands of charitable associations to
supply the wants of the people that a commit
tee of five call on the Howard association ask
ing them to supply funds necessary for the
continuance of this committee that failing in
this a final appeal be made to the secretary of
war for rations that failing in this the com
mittee be authorized to appeal to the public at
large to aid us.
NEW YORE, Sept. 30.The contributions in
aid of the yellow fever sufferers are lessening
in amount. On Saturday they amounted to
$2,813. The gentlemen who compose the sev
eral committees urge the public, however, to
continue its gifts inasmuch as there is still
much suffering in the South which can be mit
igated by the wise use of money. The work of
collecting clothing for the yellow fever suffer
ers is heme pushed forward with earnestness
by a committee of the Young Men's Christian
association. Appeals for aid have been made
in many churches and in all cases have met
with cordial responses. In some of the churches
yebterday special addiesses on the subject
were made by the pastois and collections were
taken up to help defray the expense of sending
the clothing to the South. A meeting of the
Y. M. C. A. and delegates from the various
city churches will be held in the association
building this evening. An invitation to be
present is given to all persons who are interest
ed in the movement. Several prominent cler
gymen are expected to make addresses.

Interesting Statements of Exports and Im
ports, National Bank Redemption, Cur
rency Outstanding, Etc.Cadets Passed
for the Engineer CorpsDecision Gov
erning the Receipt and Payment of
SUBSIDARY COIN I N PAYMENT OF DUTIES*
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.The secretary of the
treasury recently submitted to the attorney
general the question whether under the provis
ions of section 3,586 of the revised statutes of
the United States public officers are compelled
to receive the subsidary silver coins of the
United States to the amount of $5 in payment
of public duties, when the amount to be paid
is more than $6 and whether any other person
than a public officer can legally be required to
receive those coins to the amount of $5 in sat
isfaction for debt when the payment to be
made is over $5. The attorney general in his
decision says: I think it quite clear fhat
the rule is to be the same whether the
United States is to pay or receive the sum in
regard to which you inquire, and that the same
law therefore applies to officers, when they are
receiving the dues of government
they are disbursing iTs
quoted at some length from the laws on sub
sidiary coins and the debates in Congress on
the subject, to show the intention of Congress.
The attorney general says: "Careful ex
amination of these debates has not shown me
that the provision in question was construed
by any manner as authorizing the payment of
$5 in silver coin as part of a larger amount."
In conclusion he says, I am of the opinion
that the section of the revised statutes refened
to in your letter is to be construed as permit
ting the payment of $5 in subsidiary silver
coin only when the debt for which it is thus
made a legal tender does not exceed the sum of
$5." In accordance with this opinion
the tieasury department will renew
the circular of June 23, 1875, as follows: "I
the receipt of silver and minor coins of the
United States for payment of duties on im
ports the following instructions will hereafter
be observed by officers of customs: First
when the total amount of duties in any one
entry cannot be paid entirely in gold certifi
cates or demand notes, because involving a
fractional part of a dollar, such fractional part
may be paid in silver coin of the United States.
SecondWhen the total amount of duties pay
able in one entry does not exceed $5 such total
amount may be paid in silver coins of the
United States in the denominations of less
than$l. Minor coins of the United States, i.
e., those not of gold or silver coinage, may be
received in payment of duties on imports into
the treasury in making change in any amount
less than 10 cents in any single transaction.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.The amount of na

partment for redemption has increased consid
erably since the circular of the 24th inst.,
which provides that from and after Oct. 1 the
charges for transportation of these notes must
be paid by the parties making the remittance
instead of the banks issuing them. The banks
are taking advantage of the few days remain
ing to exchange national bank notes. They
have on hand for legal tenders at the expense
of the banks issuing the notes instead of those
remitting them, which accounts for the in
creased receipts. On Saturday the amount re
ceived was $1,035,000. As nearly ail the notes
are sent from the city banks the burden of this
new taxation will fall upon them, hence criti
cisms and remonstrances have poured in strong

MONTREAL, Sept. 30.As the day approaches
for the Hanlan-Courtney match interest is
everywhere intensified beyond all precedent.
A constant succession of telegrams is received
from all parts of the United States and Canada,
as well as from England for information, show
the wide-spread and anxious feelings evinced
by the great international contest. The men
themselves take the matter like philosophers,
discussing the pros and cons without apparent
ly being conRcious of the interest they are in
spiring at present in the hearts of their coun
trymen. Hanlan and his immediate friends
express the utmost confidence in the result.
They all appreciate and weigh at their proper
value the chances which a contestant in such
an event must take, and in hazarding their
opinions they weigh their words with the most
becoming circumspection. Hanlan, as well as
his club confreres, hold an exalted opinion of
Courtney as an oarsman. Hanlan said he felt
great responsibility devolving upon him in
meeting such a man in an international con
test. It would be probably the hardest he had
undertaken, when the latter's wonderful record
was considered. He had also a good opinion of
the American's style of rowing, which has
been admired by every one who has seen it at
Courtney did not venture on the water yes
terday at all. Beyond going out for a walk in
the morning, he took no" exercise during the
day, remaining a close prisoner in his cottage
all the evening, seemingly courting the gaze of
curious crowds who surrounded his cottage.
He was in fine spirits,and in his own modest way
expressed himself confident of doing his own
share in the event near at hand. With the
werther on Wednesday as fine as to-day, and
the course as smooth, he remarked, "the race
will be a great success."
Hanlan went out for a spin this morning,
remaining nearly an hour, during which time
he and Courtney came together on the lee of
the Isle of Dorval, when they had quite a
brush. To all appearances Courtney got the
better of the spurt, but it is well understood
neither men were pulling their best. A num
ber of Courtney's friends and backers arrived
from the city this morning, and expressed
great confidence in their man.
A six DAYS' TRAMP.
NEW YORK, Sept. 30.At 1 o'clock this morn
ing Daniel O'Leary, of Chicago, and John
Hughes, of New York, commenced their six
days' tramp at Gilmore's Garden. The contest
is for the Sir John D. Astley belt, $1,000 in
stamps and the championship of the world.
In addition a portion of the gate money goes
to the winner. Four hundred persons, includ
ing several ladies, assembled at the Garden to
see the start.
Up to 10 A. M., Hughes, within 8 hours 25
minutes and 48 seconds, from the time of
starting, had accomplished 50 miles, wnile
O'Leary had just completed his 45th mile.
Time 9 hours 7 minutes and 6 seconds. He
started off on a run, as he did in Central hall,
last April, while O'Leary commenced his tramp
with a steady, elastic walk. At the start Harry
Hill made abet of $100 to $75 on O'Leary. and
Mr. Smith, O'Leary'B backer, offered $5,000 to
$1,000, but no one would take him. A bet of
$400 to $200 on O'Leary was taken and the

done very little walking, starting off every once
in a while on a sort of dog trot, while O'Leary
has made his time by walking alone. A 4 P. M.
O'Leary had walked 72 miles and Hughes 78
miles. Both men will keep on walking until
1 o'clock to-morrow morning. At present,
Hughes will probably finish 100 miles by half
past nine this evening, and O'Leary's friends
say that he will not be half an hour behind

will make any strenuous effort to reduce the

THE ADELPHI 8 ROTTEN BOILER.
NEW YOPK, Sept. 30.The Brooklyn Eagle
publishes the following about the rotten con
dition of the boiler of the Adelphi recently
exploded at Norwalk: William Merritt, of
Eighteenth street, a youth of 18, was employed
as fireman on board the steamboat Adelphi,
but two days ago he left throdgh a quarrel with
a fellow fireman. He stated to a representative
of the Eagle, during the period he was employ
ed as fireman he was in constant terror that the
boiler would burst. One month ago he was en
gaged with fireman John Haley in putting a
patch over another patch, when they heard a
hissing noise, and both rushed out on deck, the
latter exclaiming, I guess the old thing has
gone up this time." After a few minutes they
returned and found the boiler leaking very
badly. There were a number of passengers on
board at the time, but they were at first too
terrified to give the alarm, and when they saw
that no explosion had taken place, they con
cluded it would be the better policy to say
nothing about it. At another time when shov
eling out ashes, they heard the same noise and
saw a thin volume of steam issuing from an
aperture around an old patch. They took no
notice of it at this time aud proceeded with
their work. During the summer season he and
the other fireman used frequently to be obliged
to work until 1 o'clock in the morning
cleaning the valves and making
constant repairs. One day an engineer came
and examined the boiler, and departed with the
remark: "That boiler will go soon." The
boiler-maker was frequently there putting on
patches, and he heard him frequently say,
"Why don't they get a new boiler this damned
old thing will make a hell of a time some day."
The boys used to joke about the boiler, and af
ter each trip they would chaff each other and
say, "Well, you have escaped this time, but
you will go up next."

CHICAGO, Sept. 30.The whisky cases known
as the first and second batch came up before
Judge Harlan this morning. There were ten
cases in the first batch, two of which were de
cided in favor of the government and six in
favor of the whisky men, the judge affirming
the decision of the court below that the prom
ises of immunity relieved the defendants from
all criminal proceeding and civil proceedings
for penalties. The nine cases on the second
batch, which included Hessing's case, were all
decided in favor of the government, Judge
Harlan decided that the President's pardon did
not relieve defendants from the payment of

defendants, but it did relieve them from all

The grand jury met, in secret session, again
yesterday morning at 10 o'clock. The cases of
Carl Andersen, Thomas Gannon, were disposed
of, as also was the case of Rogers, charged with
killing a cow. The latter was not indicted.
The jury then took their committees' reports
on the jail, etc., under advisement, and the
same were prepared at length, a scribe being
introduced into the Star Chamber for that pur
pose. The social evil question received a pass
ing notice, dhd the conclusion arrived at as
heretofore stated in the GLOBE,
and authoritatively given yesterday by
the grand jury, several days after
the first announcement. The great question
of the day was how the GLOBE had obtained an
accurate daily account of their proceedings.
A good many ugly words were declaimed.
And the suggestion to have the reporter, who
had outwitted them, before the body was warm
ly urged. Mr. Hughson believed in the advisa
bility of so doing. C. H. Bigelow didn't be
lieve any harm had been done, but at the same
time condemned the whole thing. J. C. Boy
den thought the matter had better drop he
didn't suppose any one of the grand jurors had
squealed. Richard Marvin was red hot to have
the affair sifted to the very bottmi The dis
turbed feelings of the whole twenty-three
business men was allayed by County Attorney
Rogers. He devised away out of the difficulty
by suggesting "the conjectural phase" of the
uestion. The whole jury bit with the eagerness
of a hungry shark, and unanimously adopted
the resolution appended to their general report,
said resolution being the formation of Mr.
Rogers' idea into an acceptance by the whole
The grand jury is discharged, having ulflll
ed the duties for which convened. But, every
single gentleman on the jury will confess that
grand juries are useless, unnecessary, and a
nuisance. They are a relic of barbarism, com
ing down with other customs which, from old
aire, have tottered to an un honored grave. Why
this custom is retained is a matvel in this
day of enlightenment. With it, it brings along
the pernicious attribute of secretiveness. In
old times the public affairs did not concern the
people. To-day they do. The GLOBE'S mission
is to serve the people. It did do it beyond all
conjecture. The GLOBE bows with becoming
modeRty at the late grand jnry's compliment
to it for astuteness, sagacity in research, and
greater profundity in deducing the absolute
fact in every case. Yet the GLOBE is compelled
decline the honors, not that they
were not worthily and justly bestowed, but
from the fact that the grand jury looked for
the GLOBE'S secret as it pleased them, and dis
covered it, as it was yet more pleasant to them.
In point of fact, the GLOBE denies sending any
reporter to catch outgoing or incoming witnes
ses to the grand jury, to interview them.
How could a witness tell whether
an indictment was to be found?
How could the GLOBE deduce anything from
any witness,when no witness was questioned?
The deliberation upon each case was given.
Moreover, the^deliberations were revealed when
no witnesses were present to be questioned,
when they came out. If an indictment were
found, it was stated if not. it was reported.
What the jail report would be was given the
day before its publication, in court. A refer
ence to the indictments as officially published,
a perusal of the reports as found, will sustain the
GLOBE in the assertion it knew what
the grand iury was doing, and pub
lished. There's too much similarity,
verbatim, in what the GLOBE reported
and what the grand jury reported. But to re
lieve the public mind and perturbed grand
jury, the GLOBE will give the modun operandi
by which the news was obtained. Edison has
invented an ear trumpet by which the softest
whisper can be heard a distance of two miles.
We've got one of 'em. The Silurian set on the
alleged newspaper of the straddle bug variety
are not up to the modern inventions and enter
prise of journalism. They did inquire about,
what's the grand jury doing? And were an
swered every morning by the GLOBE. But as
further and absolute confirmatory evidence,
the reports of the grand jury are herewith sub
THE "GLOBE'S" REPORTS CORROBORATED IN EVERY
State of Minnesota, County of Ramsey, City
of St. Paul.
To the Honorable, the Judge of the District
Court in and for said Countj of Ramsey:
The grand jury empanneld for tbeSeptember
term of said court, would respectfully present
the following report:
FirstThe said grand jury has investigated
with care all the cases which have been brought
1o its notice by the county attorney, and made
due return upon the same to this court, accord
ing to the usual custom. The jury, however,
is deeply impressed with the opinion
that a large proportion of the cases which have
been brought before it should have received
prompt and final attention in the municipal
court, believing it to have had sufficient juris
diction, and thereby saved much val
uable time of the court and much
expense to the tax payers of
Ramsey county, besides meting out justice to
the offenders more promptly. One case
brought before this body for consideration was
where the magnificent sum of 20 cents was in
volved, a sum not equal to the time and energy
of twenty-three business men.
Second -Committees were appointed to visit
the jail, county poor farm and county hospital,
and the repprts on the same are submitted
The attention of the grand jury has been
called to the existence of various public houses
of prostitution within the city limits with the
request that the laws upon the subject may be
vindicated, we deeply deplore the ex
istence of these infamous resorts
of lust and crime, and the grand jury is of the
opinion that the city ordinances, if enforced,
would be much more efficient in suppressing
them, and keeping them suppressed, than
could a body of men called together as grand
jurors for a few days, twice a year. We there
fore recommend that the city council rigidly
enforce all the ordinances pertaining to this
matter of very serious concern to all good citi
zens of St. Paul.
Added to the report was the following reso
Resolved, That after mature deliberation, and
after having made all necessary investigation,
it is the unanimous opinion of the grand jury
that the statement which appeared in a city
paper (the GLOBE, only) was not the result of
any communication made by any member of this
body, bnt was in consequence of information
gleaned from witnesses who were waited on by
a reporter or reporters as soon as such witnesses
left the grand jury room. In addition, they
the reportersmade their own deductions to
complete each case.
THE COUNTY FARM AND POOR HOUSE.
The report regarding the county farm repre
sented the condition as good. The poor house
was kept clean and orderly the farm, as such,
having been weU attended to. The crops raised
exceeded the wants of the insti
tution. This year's crop amounted
220 bushels of wheat raised on 85 acres of
ground 1,000 bushels of oats, 1,000 bushels of
potatoes, and 600 bushels of corn. A great
portion of the work was done by panpar labor,
only two hired hands being kept. The money
accounts were fonnd to be all right. Mr. N.
Pothen, overseer,was commended for the faith
ful manner in which he discharges his duties.
Recommended that the pest house be placed in
chaTge of an inmate of the poor house, and the
person in charge at $25 per month be dis
charged, provided an apt person can be fonnd.
THE COUNTY JAIL.
The committee's report on the jail begun
with the recommendations already given in
Gov. Smith, who has been absent at the
Northern agricultural fair and other points in 1 advance by the GLOBE. In substance the report
northern Wisconsin for the past week, returned A recommended the substitution of iron for
home to-nighk wooden do ore the reflooring of portions o^the
cells with iron and wood the erection of a par
tition to separate female prisoners from the
male inmates. The necessity of this was en
larged upon in relating the present condition
and the manner in which male and female
were unavoidably brought into contact.
The sanitary condition was declared to be
good, and the supervision of Sheriff King, and
those in his employ, to this end was carefully
attended to. The cleanliness throughout the
building, bedding, etc., commended itself to
THE CITY PRISON
was visited and everything was found in good
The hospital report states everything was
generally found to be in good condition. Thir
teen patients are in the hospital, and a provis
ion of sixteen cots is made. The jury
deem the accommodations insufficient.
The water supply was found to
be wholly inadequate, and recommend the im
mediate construction of a cistern with ca
pacity of 300 barrels. The patients are well
supplied and attended. The jury recommend
the purchase of supplies at wholesale, and the
present mode of purchase by retail to be dis
continued. The expense for the last eight
months was $2,575. or at the rate of $21 per
patient per month, which is termed reason

The Weddiug Ceremony.
The GLOBE is a conservator of the public
morals. Having assumed a mission, it at
tempts to fulfil it. So far success has marked
its efforts. Maud Murdock was reclaimed, and
would probably have remained so, had not a
P. P. man learned of it through the
GLOBE, and then proceeded to visit
her while the GLOBE was off in legitimate busi
ness working up the grand jury. If not wholly
successful in this instance, owing to counter
evil influences, the GLOBE lays well grounded
claims to having settled the unhappy difficulty
between Dr.. J. E. Campbell and Miss Alice
Stewart, of Melrose, most satisfactorily. The
advice was given to terminate the affair
with a peal from the wedding bells.

holy bonds by Judge Flint, at the police sta

who has taken a great interest in the affair,
wholly apart from his character as an officer.
After the ceremony was feelingly pronounced,
and the couple were made man and wife, the
bride was lovingly kissed by Mrs. Morrison.
It is needless to say the susceptible
reporters present were willing to kiss the bride
for her mother, or any other relative in the
The bride is as handsome as already pictured
by the GLOBE'S artist. She was neatly arrayed
in a lavender poplin dress, a neat and pretty
cashmere cloak, with bugle trimmings about the
neck, and piping of satin in front neat
fitting gloves, and a janntj' bnt modest hat,
completed an agreeable tout ensemble.

vouchsafed him bv his wife.
