Johnny Lambley Leads In Winning
Mounts at This Meeting.
The Brighton Beach Haclng Association
brought lis meeting to a closo yesterday
artcrnouti, and R wrs one or tbo best get
away daysever known to tho talent, that Is,
Irom tbe talcut'11 standpoint. The weather
was simply miserable, but nevertheless tbo
usual crowd ol regulars turned out to wltncbs
a lalrly good card run on. iboMessls Kngc
man, perhaps, wore the most pleasant smile
of nil, us tho meeting has been one of tho
most succeislul ever known 10 Brighton
Beacbers, and to hecretary bass Is meat of
tbe credit due, as Lis untiring efforts bate
made tba programmes what they were.
Favorites almost made a clean sweep of tho
purses, !udhjo being the only ouo that did
not land tbo meney. l!ndoubtedl the raojt .
popular win of tbe altcruoou was Jimmy Mc
Laughlin's Key West. There Is hardly n turf
man who has hot a warm spot In his heait tor 1
the uue-tlmogrealesl of America's Jockeys and .
one and all ate more than glud 10 sco his col
ors In the van. Key West Is n greatly Im
proved colt since Jimmy has taken blm, and
w 111 give pretty near an) body's horse an argu
ment. "Billy" Lakeland landed the big purse '
with crotchet, and the Duke ot Brighton must
have won u barrel of money ovei bis filly's
victor). In this race lndli Rubber, with a
belter boy up, would have beaten CrotchcU
but Coffey, as usual, was satlstiod to take the
worst ot tbe start, and was lengths out of thu
race on tbe back stretch, but rounding Into
tho stretch be brought the Rubier horse, as
many trainers call htm, up with a rush, and
was catching ihe fast tiring raiorlle at every
Jump, but could not eiulto get up.
Early Blossom opened tbe tun by galloping
tho distance In the first race and winning
easily. Four tu flto was laid against the
Blossom's chances at tho oj cuing, but tbo
money canio In so fast that her price was
soon cut to 1 to a. Taking tbo lead at tbe
first jump sbu was never beaded, winning
pulled up by a length and a half. Indigo was
made a hot favorite for tho second race, but
hu was never In It, tbe Woodland Stable's
useful filly, Josephine, making a runaway
nice cf It. The thlru race was perhaps tbe
most spirited betting an air or tbe aiternoon,
" Father Bill's " Alcalde and Johu Cavanagh

London, Aug. UT. Another pacscnger who
arrived at Urave&end Thursday on tho
bteamer (lemma rrom Hamburg has died Irom
cholera at the Oravesend Hospital.
There is deep Indignation nt the careless
ness or the medical officers who Inspected
and passed the Oemna, particularly In view
ot tbo tact that they had been ordered
to te most 'searching In tbelr examina
tion of vessels from Infected ports. Tho
I whole affair shows how utterly use'cs3 quar
I antlne regulations are unlets tbo officers
' charged with their enforcement aro Intel
ligent enough to know the danger to which
they expose the whole people If they do not
properly fulfil the duties Intrusted to them.
Considerable uneasiness has been created
, by the knowledge that some of tbe Gemma's
passengers are In London.
The whereabouts or all ot them aro not
known to the authorities but a 6trlct watch
will b) kept by all the medical and sanitary
oftlc.als lor the nr.t appearance or the

As the epidemic Is Increasing In virulence

vlcoand at present lu tho Marine Hospital

thoso health officials In tho country who are
aolnc much to convince tho public that
cholera Is near at band.
Prof. Hamilton takes the view that unnec
essary and repeated warnings are liable to
produce a panic and result Injuriously.
I rot. Hamilton said: "I think thero Is ab
solutely no occasion for alarm, although
there Is etery reason for cxtremo vigilance
on the part or those Intrusted with the roau
agemont or our sanitary matters.
"The National and local authorities have
belter sanitary arrangements than ever be
lore, the laws are moro practical, and sani
tary scleno has more resources than for-
ruerly. 1 ho sanitary officers throughout the
country are fully alert but some ot
1 them reeia to forget tbat one ot tho
j most Important duties ot an officer charged
wltn sanitary administration Is tbe preten
I tlon ol panic, which paralyzes tbe Industries
I and dries up tbe channels ot trade, and does
1 almost as much harm as tbe epidemic Itself."

tbe (uarantlno and Health officers ot New

being the first ship to Introduce the plague to
tho Western Continent.
1 (Irate apprehensions have been felt by
j quarantluu officials because advices bad been
'received Irom llatre that Immigrants who
bad travelled with those who had secured
passage on La Touralne, und who had been
compelled to remain in port on uccount ot the
crowded condition of the steerage, bad been
seized with the cholera belore tho ship left
, t ho harbor. The suspicion tbat those who had
tal en passage must necessarily be Inlocted
1 and that tho ship would bo plague-ridden be
1 fore reaching tbls poit appeared to be well
founded and was shared by the health au-
t borllles on tbls side ot tbe ocean.
1 he ottara-ittne officials were fully prepared
' to find tomo of the 415 steerage passengers
on tbe Trench liner sick or Infected.
When La'iouralne dropped anchor on
