Owing to the illness of Health Commissioner
Griflln, who is still confined to his room, al
though steadily mending, tho repeater was un
able to sco him with regard to tho staitling fig
ures abnvo presented, but had a talk witli Dr.
Young. DoDtity Commissioner, on tho aublcct.
" How do you account for tho increase this
season ovor that of 1888" tho reporter in
quired. " I hardly know how to answer that. Thero
are several reasons advanced by various physi
cians aa to the cause of diphtheria. Tho lead
ing opinion seems to bn that tho disease is
cansed by defective plumbing or vitiated air
caused by stagnant water or unclcanllness. In
reposition to this viow we find diphtheria exist
ing in houses whore the plumbing is in good
order ana tho sanitary condition of tho dwellings
apparently perfect. It may bo that iti many
instances tho discaso Is propagateel by people
going In and out from houses already infected
with the disease.
"In tho Eighth Ward, whoro tho mortality
from diphtheria appears the highest, there has
occn considcraUc excavation for tbo lallroads
sluro tlio beginning of tho present year. That
may possiblv account for tho disease being so
provalent thero this season. Thero is a water
front Gowaiius Ua in the Eighth Ward, and
much lilting in has been done there from the
railioadoxcavatloii", and the accumulated mud
biing stini'd up may have thrown out tho germs
"'Ihn Sieve nteonth Ward, over at Greonpolnt,
cnmeH next in tho number of fatalities tiom this
disease. There is a considerable river front,
and tho ward is bounded on the north by New
town Creek and on tho louth bv llushwick
Cteek. Now it Is very well known that in both
these creeks tho water is contaminated by the
lesidne rmiilnir from tho ditfercut works located
on thoso creeks. The mud. too, is always being
stirred UP. Tills is probably ono cause for thn
prevalence of the discaso in that'ward.
"Ah regards the hlghteeuth Ward, which
figures third on tho mortality list, I know of
nothing special to bring out diphtheria then.
It Is a growing ward and tho excavating for
building purposes is veiy oxtonsivc. This might
possibly bn considered by some physicians as the
causu of tho ilieae thoie. It might also be
argued that as tbo ward adjoins the Seventeenth
thn eiiseasu might ha 'e been spread. If that
Wero so th Sixteenth Ward would havo it
severely, but tho tiguics show that in tho eleven
weeks tlieiu weie only halt a dozen fatal cases
there. Now all I have said about the pi oh.
able causes of the disoasa is but mcie surmise.
Other physicians might have entiicly diflercnt
ideas as to thu cause of tho provalonco in these
WHAT lin. nAYLTI THINKS.
Dr. II. II. Havles. a prominent physician of
tho city and Health Inspector for the Eighth
Ward, was asked how he accounted for the gieat
fatality fiomdiplithoria in the Eighth Waul.
"lleforo 1 go into tho probablo whys and
wheiefores I will look at my books. It seems
by these that the greatest fatalitv 111 diphtl eria
in this ward occurred towards the latter part of
September, l mining through the month of
Octobei and continuing in November up to the
present date. In September fourteen cases of
tho disease were reunited and eight pioved
fatal. In October thirty persons were attaekeil
with it, and fourteen, as tar as I cm asci ito.ni.
died. Tor November, up till to-day, 1 have a
record of ten eases anil of these seven prnvcel
fatal. '1 his is a large percentage.
"As to the probable causo of the prevalence
of thn discaso I will say in tho ill st place
that this is thn time of vear when it is more
pievaleut. and without doing injustice to the
public schools oi the paioclual schools, and
with all our vigilance no llnd that children at.
li nil school some tew days attct thoy have bei u
complaining of snie throat, and befeueu physi
cian has been called and also befoie the case lias
been leporled to tho Health Department. 1)1
icctly a child suffers from any throat irritation
it should be kept from school by its parents and
medical adilco sought. I 11ml that a
laige majority of illplithetia eases am
among children muter ten years of ase. As
recur I thn fatality of thesena'es 1 should Judge
II at the teiim of tho discaso from which thev
died was diphtheritic crnup-tliat In Itself is
simply a elciosit of the diphtheiitie meiiibiano
in the Ian nx. This form is nearlyalwuys fatal,
" Ihcro havo been many the or In advanced as
tn tbo cause of diphtheiia. It isascnbcd by
Homo to defective sevrci age; by others to a spc.
clal genu. Mv opinion is it is one tn tho last
named, simply because we get epidemics of
diphtheria in country towns and villages whoro
thcioi no sewerage whatovci. It lias bieu
found in lliooklvn to havo mado its ruiagcs in
tho hest sections, among houses the sanitary
condition of which e-onld not bn (iuestloiio.1
namely, on tho Heights. How that specitlo
germ originates am unable tn determine, lhat
is what science is endeavoring to disiovci.
CIIElVl.NO HUM TUANhlEIlS PISEASE.
"W' might attribute the special germ tn ex
cavation tor buildings, but that theory elocs not
apply to the Eighth Waul, berauto in the Tweu
tj. second Waul, nheie much nioro building is
going on, the m.mhci of fatal cases 's only five,
while vto have tlurtv. 1 read recently in a
scientific Journal that the chewing of gum
among children and passing the portions
chewed to their playmates was a means of
propagating tho contagion, 'lhat is very plans,
ihle. and if so, I don't sun why the biting of
apples or bananas oi candy, aachildieii iloall
around when thoy are plavmg sometimes, would
not be as sutllcient a came as the other.
" I don't think thero l anything in the Eighth
Ward to make it mote detrimental to health
cither cliildien or adult' than some of our
other wards whose mortality is less. Most of
the rases or diphtheria In the Eighth Ward have
not been whero you might expert tn find them
namely, in the region of the newly.made lands,
ome few stagnant ponds or near the cuts re
cantly made by the railroad people-but In the
section from Fourth avenue to N'lnth avenue,
where the houses are. aa a rule, of a better class
and the sewerage and drainage more complete.
These houses compare favorably with those lo
cated in thn southern section of the Twenty-tec-ond

A POLICEMAN TOR PRIEST.
NOVEL ORATION OVER THE BODY OF
TATROLMAN AUGUSTUS JL DENYSE.
IT WAB HIS WISH TO HAVE HOTHTHO
DKEAEY ABOUT THE OBSEQUIES.
He tiled He llnd Lived, an Agnostic,
nnd He Had "No Time for Hypocrisy"
When the End Came IJy Ills Keqneat
the 1'nneral Kervlce Wsi an Address by
a everseanli Who IVna Ilia Friend.
"What's that? Three raps! They want an
olUapr. Well, I'm not afraid to go. "
Theso were almost tho last words spoken by
Follccman Augustus M. Donyae, whose fuucral
took placo yesterday.
This elyinc speech byaman who formoro than
thirteen years had been a patrolman on the Now
York forcc.undcr ordinary circumstances would
be accepted as one of those singular jet pathetic
incidents which frequently accompany tho
putting off of mortality, where, in the delirious
state immediately preceding dissolution, tho
final effort of oipliltig humanity is an uncon
scious rally to the lino of accustomed duty. But
tho circumstances accompanying the death of
Policeman Denyse were not ordinarj-, and,
taken in conjunction with other utterances
from his lipa a few momenta beforo thoso lips
were Kissed Into ice by tho Angel of Death,
seem to Indicate that at the instant
of this dying speech ho waa iu the full possession
of all bis mental faculties, l'alntul as It may
appear to many, horrible aa it may seem to sonio
of bis friends and acquaintances, there can be no
disguising the fact that Patrolman Denyse, of
the Nineteenth Precinct, died as he had lived, an
outspoken agnostio and a disbeliever in revealed
religion, and that he met death coming not
suddenly, but teen approaching with deliberate
stopa from a long distance, without a tremor or
without one whispered apology for his attitude
towards Ood. Like Cottrtlaudt Palmor, whoso
life is admitted to have been upright, and whose
death was unquestionably encountered with
fearlessnesa. this policeman passed away faith
fill to the ideas that had controlled him through
tho latter years of his life. To Hergt. Crocker,
of the Ninth Precinct, who had been his faith
ful friend tor man.v jears, and who. standing at
his dying bedside, had besought him to send for
aclergjman and make ins peace with God, he
"Sergeant, lam dying, and I have no time
for hypoci isy now. "
Then Herat Crooker said: "Goodnight,
' No, not ' good night, ' " whispered the dying
man in roply; "good-bj"."
It was tho earnest request of Donyae. Just be
fore his death, that no religious services Bhould
be held over his iimalns.
"I want," said ho, "to be buried In P.oe
Hill. N. J., by the side of my brother, and if
my chief, 8ergt. Olivor Tims, of the Nine
teenth, can find it in his heart to say a few. words
ovor my clay to comfort those whom I leaio be
hind, I would llko to have him do so."
Thus it happened that on tho second floor of
the comfortably appointed littlo brick house. No.
708 Greenwich street, thero occurred yesterday
afternoon a most remarkable funeral ton ice.
Den j so originally waa a patrolman in tho
Ninth Precinct ami was afterwards trans
ferred to tho Nineteenth. Though small in
physique, he waa a man of undoubted courage,
anil among his fellow "club swingers " ho
passed, aa indeed ho seems to have had a right
to do, aa one considerably above tho station
which ho occupied. Tho delegations of bluo
coated giants from both tbo Ninth aud Nine
teenth precincts who tramped up the staira of
the little houso in Gicenwich street to pay the
1 t tivlian r rAatAAnt. tn vtIiaIvw slnarl vm raila a 4
ilcutiy had not been, so far as the majority
was concerned, hla intimates in life. Theyspoke
of him feelingly aa a man of superior intellect
and of undaunted courage, but who, it was ap
paient, had ways of his own which made mixing
with him a thing of difficult accomplishment.
Conspicuous in this assemblage of police
ofllcera wore two men who wcro clearly superi
ors of the rost. 'ihoso were Hergt. Tims, of tho
Nineteenth, aud Hergt. Crocker, of the Ninth.
NN hile the majority of the policemen present,
oiidently HoiuAn Catholics, clustered together
lu the little kitchen of the flat lu which their
comrade had lived and died, and commented in
whtspora upon the sad spectacle ot an unshilven
corpse awaiting burial with uo priest to say a
prayer for hia soul, the two tiergeants stood
thoughtfully in the hall. Bright sunlight
sti earned through tho front windows into the
parlor whoie tho dead agnostic lay in his cnftiii.
it had been his wish that so far as possible
there should be nothing dreary about the sceno
of his obsequies. A magnificent pillow of w hltu
lloweis inwrought with the aiugta word "Ilcst,"
in purple blossoms, stood at the head of tho
casKet. The willow and her two children, a
boy of fourteen or thereabouts, aud his sister, a
lew j ears older, sat close by the casket in the
altogether uiifunercal room, aud certain or the
neighbors had gathctcd in sufficient numbers to
fill the apartment.
Presently, without any formalitj-, Hergt. Tims,
of ('apt. lleilly'H precinct, advanccei to the side
of the caskot, which lay midway between the
frout windows, illumined by the flood of mid
day light which ponied into tho room, and said:
"My friends, death is alwajs, and has always
been, tegardoel as the mot solemn incident in
human experience. No elegreo of familiarity
with it eliminishca. or can diminish, the awe
with which we aro bound tn regard it. We are
standing in the picsenco of death this after
noon, aud In that prescnio I would like to ig.
note all cold words and speak of tho dead only
in a spirit ot tenderness. "
Heldom has funeral orator chosen worels more
fitting to tho opening of such an occasion than
those above quoted from the lips ot this police
sergeant. The squadron of blue-coats in tlio
icar rooms of the Hat were touched bv this sim
ple prelude and crowded to tho doom ays to
catch a better glimpse of the tlowei-laelcued
room in which the dead body nf their iniuloi
companion In dangei was lying and over whose
bony their 1 vlnii and respected hereeant, who.e
religi jus beliol they knew to be different, had
aeon tit tn pronounce some ante-but nil words.
' When great preachers and orators," con
tinned the sergeant, "officiate at tho bicisof
the great and ilch men who havo departed this
life thoy are supposed to emphasize and eulo
gize tho virtues of tha deceased, often at tho ex.
ppnse of truth, aud to gloss over facts not
pleasant to hear on tuoh occasions. Theie am
those i who find lault with such hypocrisy, and
with those I take no naue. Al wll agree, how.
ever, that to apeak tenderly of tho.e who aia
gone, tp speak for those who cannot speak fir
themselves. Is a meet and fitting thing, in

He was not a hypocrlto nor a dissembler.
It is true that he was not a Christian as wo know
Christians, hut lie did not despise tho Bible nor
Ignore its teachings. Hia objections wero tint
against tho Bible, but towarels thoo who
preached it. and whose worels ho claimed made
the Word of Uoel of no effect. He had a big
heart for tho pool. He thought that by Just
laws poverty could bo diminished. Ho waa a
man of liheial thought, accepting all that waa
best, an he conceived, in tho teachings of Dr.
JlcGlynn, Homy George and Hugh Pentecost.
He had a keen, penetrating mind and n subtlo
tiude.rstauding. Ho believed that the teaching
nf tlio oi thodnv. clergy, that poverty waa tho re
sult of natural laws and God's ordinances, waa
prcposteious, and It waa his disapproval of tho
clergy which, 1 think, deceived himself In re
gard tn his own belief and mado him perhaps
agnostic That lie was an honest, npiight.fafi
dcaling, moral man, no one who knew him will
ever doubt. In view of such a character as this,
a believer and a practice!' nf truth, honesty and
uprightness, can any ono bo disnoscel tn ernes
tiou hia final disposition, his ultimate placo in
the rewards of the Just hereafter J St. Paul said
that those whohad not the law, yet who followed
tho law. should reap its rcwarel,"
All this was said hy this sergeant of police
without any aflectation of manner or snaring
for etl oct. It was the simple, iiuorcmcelitatod
tribute of ono honest man to tho memory nf
another, and when it is considered that Beret. I
Tims la himself an orthodox member of the
Church of England, hia worels gain added In
terest by the knowledge nf this fact. After the
above remarks ho turned to where tho widow
and children of tho dead officer sat, and said
"1 convey to von, Mrs. Denyse. tho sympathy
and regrets of your husband's associates. They
all esteemed him for his woith. hit quiet,
honorable demeanor and hia lovablo disposi

hymns. Amid the bright sunshine of the beauti
ful Autumnal day the casket was home down the
narrow atairs by a ulatoon of police to a waiting
hearse and was thence taken to Matawan, N. J.,
where it will be interred Katurdaj-, according to

Emtachio Jasnili, an Italian, about twenty,
eight yeara old, waa before Justice Peterson
yesterday on a complaint, sworn to by Maria
Casolaio, alleging that he had by force ind
threats brought the fair complainant, who has
seen not more than nineteen Hummers, through
several States and many cities, and unlawfully
detained her lrom her husband. Maria statei
tbat on Aug, 0 sho waa led away while JasuUa
held a pistol at her head, and that ahe waa
afraid ,of hor llfo to mako a publlo protest
against hia action until they came in the course
hf tlioir wanderings to Jersey City, where
Jasuila'a wife for he was married, too met
him and sued him for abandonment. This gara
Maria, according to her ownatory, all the en
couragement needed, and she secured a warrant
for the arrest of Jasuila, who anpeared befori
Justico Petterson yesterday and had the trial
postponed until thla morning.
When Maria asked for tho warrant some dart
ago she made the modost clerk bluih to tbe roots
of his hair while alio related all the indijpiltiM
heaped upon her. Hlic has been but fouf yeirt

" Except at tho risk of my life," was the tear

not making a marked impression, ihe con
tinued: "It may bo very well for a man to Im
agine he would not stand such treatment, but
what could a weak woman do ? He coerced me
into sinning, and am I to bo tbe sufferer?"
Eustachlo Jasuila, tho defendant, was seen in
tho cell in Uaymond Htreat Jail where he li
awaiting trial. He did not seem to bo worried
much over the result, and said that aa he had
already been tried for this case and paid a fine
of J'-'S he could not be tried again. Mana'l
friends say that Jasquila has mixed up the case
of abandonment with the other charge.
" 1 do not blame tho girl." said Jaantla, who,
like another Adam, addeel that tbe woman waa
the one to make the first advances. " bho loves
