Ono of tho nioht pernicious systems to
which tho working women of this great city
are subjected is that known ns tho "sweat

bio extent on tho cast hide, and thus far tho
efforts of Bomo of tho hutiiano men at tho
head of tho labor organizations to eradicate
it havo proved futile. Women and young
girls, somo of tho latter not over tueho
years old, aro packed in illy ventilated
rooms in tho tenement-houses liko
Mirdincs in a box, and are compelled to work
for pittances that hardly keep body and toul
Tho employers of these women aro known

any article that can bo made by tho use of

women and girls to do tho work, and furnish
Kmung-machincB and working materials to
them nnd pay starvation wages, n liich range
from 1.60 a week to $5. So sovoro are theso

A reporter for The Evening Wobld, in

the work-peoplo to combine for mutual pro

" sweating Bystom." Mr. Weinstein said :
" I ha examined thoroughly into tho ovil
you speak of, and I can say that tho reports
concerning it aro not at all exaggerated. I
havo endeavored Jto attract tho attention of
tho labor unions to tho matter, but uothing
decisive, has been accomplished thus far.
There uro thousands of poor womon who
work their lives away in dirty and unhealthy

rta Hhlp'ft I'nmeiisem.
Tho Health Board is just now in a some
what peculiar position. It hasn't enough
Commissioners to hold a meeting.
Of tho members of tho Board Commission
er Bryant is hundreds of miles away;
Frcsident French cannot bo induced to

Presidont Bayles is left alone.
Provided a stray Commissioner can bo
found,- an important meeting will - bo
held this afternoon in regard to tho
cholera . now under treatment nt
Quarantine. Dr. Smith, should ho
appear will bo formally requested by Mr.
Bayles to turn over to the Heulth Depart
ment all the passengers whoa they are dis
missed from Quarantine, and then they will
be taken, in all probability to North Brothers
Island, where tnoy mnst spend some moro
time before they nro allowed to enter this
city. President Bayles expresses his deter
mination not to allow any of tho persons on
the Alesia to set foot on Manhattan Island
until the development of cholera has passed
the bounds of possibility.
Another death from cholera occurred at
Swinburne Island to-Hay. The victim was a
child. Thero are now nino cases on iho
island. No new caso has occurred among
tho passengers on Hoffman Island.

Cleveland, Oct. '.0. Tho causo of Mrs.
lames A. Garfield and daughter, Miss Mollio,
ailing for England so unexpectedly on tho
Arizona yesterday is tho critical Illness' of
Miss Mason, Mrs. Garfield's niece, who is
now in London. This necessarily postpones
tho marriage of Miss Mollio to J. Stanley
Brown, which had been fixed for Oct. 20.
Mrs. Garfield and daughter expoct to pass
the winter In Europe, and will not return bo
foro next spring at tho earliest. Tho wed
ding, therefore, will probably not tuko placo
until next autumn. They w oro not accom
panied by Mr. Brown.
Notwithstanding tho foregoing explana
tion, which is an authoritative statement
from oloso family friends, the consensus of
opinion in social circles hero is that thero
was some interior purposo in this sudden dis
arrangement of long-matured plans, aud cur
rent gossip is to tho effect that tho postpone,
mont of the, wedding in not only until noxt
year, but is indefinite.
Nothing positivo is known, of conrso; but
with tho wedding day bo near at hand it is
argued, and with reason, that it could have
been advanced to moot tho emergoncy, if tho
illness of Miss Mason is calling Mrs.and Miss
Garfield abroad, or if it were nocossary to go
a year's absence would not bo entailed in
consoquonce. Altogether tho affair is most
mysterious, and has afforded society hero a
choico morsol of gossip.
