irlCUL CABLE DESPATCH TO THE WORLD.
Colombo. Island of Ceylon. Dec. 8. I arrived
hue this morning surely on board the renin
mUr and Oriental steamer Victor! two days
ahead of ichedulo time. I . unfortunately,
unable to send off a despatch from Aden, six
days ago, owing first to tho short timo wo stayed
there and again to tho general confusion that
prevailed in transferring passongere.
We had a pleasant trio through tho big sea
where Tharaoh and his hosts woro en culled In
olden times, and when wo once cot on the
Arabian Sea wo made BplendUl time, escaping
tho monsoons, and thus getting here earlier
tbau I anticipated.
If my good luck continues the Victoria will
brirg mo through tho Straits of Malacca to To
ning on Dec. 14, to Blngaporo two days later,
and to Hong Kong Dec. 2.1. This is still main
taiuing our two days ahead which wo haTC
gained up to Colombo.
My Journey has been made very pleasant for
me through tho courtesy of the Peninsular and
Oriental people. I enjoyed my experiences thor
oughly. Tho voyago from Brindisi, whenco wo
sailed early on Monday morning, Nov. 24, waa
exceedingly rough, especially while passing
within light of tho Albanian coast. On Tues
day wo were in view of tho island of Crete, On
tho morning of tho 27th wo came in Bight of
the low slioros of Egypt. My impressions of tho
Suez Canal I havo tried to give in my letter
already font you. It seemed slow voyaging
while passing through M. do Lesscps's wonder
ful work, becanso I was so anxious to get ahoad.
I am in the best of health and tho brightest
ipiriM and should feel bettor still, I think,
if I bad not tho few days of compulsory so
journ In Hong Kong ahead of me. waiting for
the steamer thence to Yokohama. I hope to
cable you on Friday night or Saturday morning
fromrenang. Nei.uk Bly.

EYES ON CONGRESS

Tho Financo Commltteo, by resolution, was
rocinestd to furnish a certified copy of tho sub
scriptions to date, and it was resolved that tho
matter of tho introduction of the Now York
World's Fair bill in Congress be left to Mr.
Tho Commit too also rcsolvod not to send any
d legation to Washington until tlio bill has been
rofened to a Congicssional Committee, the con
clusion reached beiug that to do so would savor
ton much uf lobbying.
New York Cltv Htonds m urgent need of a
baud of active "hustleis." who will invade
Washington and urge tho claims uf tills city as
a site for tho World s hair.
Chicago and at. Louis have delegates stationed
there, who are putting in good rtrokes, while
New Yorl. remains idle.
'I he necessity for piompt action by Congress
is illustrated by the poor chiming which tho
United Mull" made at the Palis F.xpositiou.
When tlio French nation extended their invi
tatinu to tills country to place our exhibits in
the Imposition. Congri-ns dawdled about tho
invitation, and when it wai acceptul the timo
was so short that thero was an unrepresentative
display In Parb. , , . ,
Other nations of tho world had responded
promptl, and their exhibits were successful.
It is goiiei ally i uncoiled that Congress will not
take uptlie World's I'airnuotiou until after the
holidujs, and the olllclal invitations to nations
of tho eaith wiH not bo extended until tho site
question is decided.
'Ibis will allow but two yean for prepaiation.
Nearly double that time was given by the Phila

Tho Board of Health and tho Society for the
Prevention of ( ruolty to Chddren found that
tho child was sick with a combination of diph
theria and scarlet fever, and that tho mother
had a severe rose of diphtheria.
It was a'ao learned that they had moved only
a week ago from 4:1 Woodhull street, whero a
similar raio existed iu tho familv of a man
named Larson, who is now tin ler bad awaiting
Tho only treatment tbo sick persons received
was from tho two nurses who came lu occasion
ally and prated for them.
The other families iu the tenement-hnnso weto
very Indignant, for Micro wore many children

illo I by tbo presenco of such dangeious con
tagious dlseai-os. , ,
Iho authorities tried In vain to persuade them
to accept treatment, and finally warned them
not lo leave their loom until steps could bo
taken to fumigate the promises.
lu spito ot this warning Jauscn and tho two
tun sou came out of the house yesterday after
noon, and were toilovved to a meeting place of
tho l'aith Cuilats, at lo.'i Hamilton avenue,
where poventy-tlvo or more of tlio sect wero con
gregate I for religions worship. , ,
'llioy mingled with tho crowd, and during tho
sei vices they wore arrested.
Mrs. .lansen and tho child woro aftornotils ro.
moved to tho FUthusli Hospital and their looms
at mitt Henry stieet, as well as tlio meeting,
home, wero thoroughly fumigated.

refmiug to gno it proper medical treatment.
None ot the prison! ra could speak much
F.ughsh except Aiireo Jaliseti, tlio turnip, and
she told Judge Tighn tbat-they all trusted in tho
saving torco of .lesua Christ, and that was
enough for them, .lauscnhad nothing to sav.
'ibis did not satisfy Judge Tlghe. so bo
commuted them all under .i00 bail on each
charge for examination Dec. in, and then went
back to prison without a murmur.
Health Inspector Callahan said to an F.vex
Mi Wimi.ii man that these Folth Curists wcro
all Scan liuarians and termed a colony of about
two hundred in the neighborhood ot Beach

"Tlio lives of ull the people in tho vicinity nf
Jansen's house wero imperilled ! tlio presence
of such dreadod diseases, and I cannot tell yet
how tar the contagion may spread. No other
coses have been dlicovered as yet."
Olllcer Coschino. of tho S. P. C. C. who In
vestigated the Jansen case, says that the sick
child was in a terrible condition, its body was
iticrusted with eruptions of tho scarlet fever,
and it was also slowly dying of diphtheria,
which it, a well as tho mother, had probably
contracted in tho Jansen house. 'Iho father io
