From the present outlook the Great futurity

clouds hung over tho courso this morning
firing everything a dreary aspeot.
The track la fellcck deep with mud, and
although men are kept harrowing it all tho
time It will bo In very poor condition.
Hundreds of men are busy putting every
thing In readiness to entertain the huge
crowd that will come to witness the great
struggle between the youngsters.
The colts this year are far from, giving tho
premiss ot the magnldcent array that faced
the starter last season. The youngsters that
have shown themselves to be In the first divi

Owners and trainers came -down early and
took a look at the muddy traox. Some walled,
away well satisfied, others saw the chances
of their well-trained charges fading away.
The first-named set was Frank Van Ness,
owner and trainer ot Morello, the most ad
mired ot candidates, and the great Jockey,
Jimmy MoLaughlln. van Ness walk9d out
on the track, and, looking up the long stretch,
smiled to himself with the remark, " I'll win

The traok will Just suit the dashing son of
Eolus-cerlse,and the muddler it gets the bet.
ter.After having a look at the track Van Ness
and McLaughlin went over to Qravesend.
where the great colt Is stabled, to give him
his last and finishing touches.
Van Nesg Is rery reticent and will not say
much to any one save bis most intimate
friends, but It was learned that Morello Is as
ntascan be and will be ready to run tho
race ot his life.
Flttpatrlok will have the mount, and he
has tipped all his mends to haven. sweller "
on the colt. He will be brought over from
Oravesend about noon.
Many people ask who Morello has beaten
to be admired so much, but by looking up his
races tbey will see that although be has not
had a chance fit any of the crackajacks bis
races have been won In such an easy manner,
and in each instance be has given away tons
Lady Violet, Mr. Belmont's Oily, upon whom
many pin their faith and dollars, is bred by
the same man, August Belmont, who for the
past two years has sent out the Futurity
winner, Potomac doing the trick In 18U0 and
Ills Highness last year.
Jack Joyner, who Is training the Belmont
candidate, wears a doleful expression, tho
cause of which Is the muddy track. These
poople had looked for a good track, but will
not give up the chances ot the big stake till
after the race, . ,
Lady violet's last appearance was In the
Junior Championship, when she was beaten
by Don Alonzo, but It Is said that she has Im
proved greatly since.

Loxdom, Aug. ST. Another passenger who

There is deep Indignation at the careless

and passed the Gemma, particularly In view

to be most searching In their examina

whole affair shows how utterly useless quar

charged with their enforcement are Intel,

they expose the whole people If they do not
properly fulfil the duties Intrusted to them.
Considerable uneasiness has been created
by the knowledge thai some ot the Gemma's

Chicaoo, Aug. 27. John s. Hamilton, ex-Surgeon-General

Frot. Hamilton takes the view tbat unnec

produce a panic and result Injuriously.
ProL Hamilton said: "I think there Is ab
solutely no occasion for alarm, although
there Is every reason for oxtreme vigilance
on tho part ot those Intrusted with the man
agement ot our sanitary matters.
" The National and local authorities havo
better sanitary arrangements than ever be
fore, the laws are more practical, and sani
tary science has more resources than for
merly. The sanitary officers throughout the
country are fully alert but some ot
them seem- to forget that one of the
most Important duties ot an officer charged
wltn sanitary administration Is the preven
tion ot panic, which paralyzes the Industries
snd dries up the channels of trade, and does
almost as much barm as the epidemic Itself."

Qcakaktimc, 8. 1., Aug. 27. La Touralne,
the French line steamship which sailed last
Saturday from the cholera-Infected port of
Havre, has, contrary to the expectations ot
the Quarantine and Health officers ol New
York, escaped the unenvlablo dla'lnctlonot
being tho first ship to Introduce the plague to
the Western Continent.
Grave apprehensions have been felt by
Quarantine officials because advlcos had beon
received from Havre tbat Immigrauts who
had travelled with those who had secured
passage on La Touralne, and tvbo bad been
compelled to remain in port en account ot tho
crowded condition of the steerage, bad been
seized with the cholera before tho ship left
tho harbor. The suspicion that those who had
taken passago mutt necessarily bo Infected
and tbat thu shin would bo plague-ridden be
lore reaching this port appeared to be well
founded and was shared by the health , au
thorities on this sldouflbo ocean.
The Quarantine ortlclals trcro fully prepared
to find some or tho 41.1 steerage passengers
on the French liner sick or Infected.
When La Touralne dropped anchor off

Tho bill ot health, with the additional
Consular certificates, did not, however, deter
Dr. Jenkins from taking extraordinary pre
cautions. At bis request tho 250 saloon passengers
were lined up, Inspected carefully and passed.
Tho 110 sccoud cabin passengers vt'ro sub

steorsge was visited.
There was a total number ot 415 Immi

women. Thoy wero examined individually,
and questions wore put aud answered satis
factorily. Not a symptom of dlarrnmal

dreaded disease, cuuld be found and the pas

Then the disinfecting vault under the Pur

Dr. Jenkins personally supervised the oper

of baggage taken npart, spread out In the
steel-lined, atr-tlght vault: and the steam
turned on until the heat registered 213 de
