London, Aug. 37. Another passenger who

There is deep Indignation at the careless

whole affair shows bow utterly useless quar

they expose the whole people If they do not
properly fulfil the duties Intrusted to them.
Considerable uneasiness has been created

Trot. Hamilton takes the vlow that unnec

Prof. Hamilton said! "I think there In ab

there Is every reason for extreme vigilance
on tbe part ot tbose Intrusted with tbe man

"Tho National and local authorities have
better sanitary arrangements thaucer b
