Mtoaud at present In tho Marine Hospital
"ervlco here, sounds a note of warning to
those health officials In the country who aro
doing much to convince the public that
cholera Is near at hand.
Prof. Hamilton takes the view that unnec
essary and repeated warnings nie liable to
pioduee a panic nnd result lnjui lously.
Prof. Hamllten s-ald: "I think there Is ab
solutely no occasion foi alarm, although
theru Iscveiy leaton foi extreme vigilance ,
on the pirt of thoso Inlrustid nlth the man-'
ngement of our sanitary matters.
" 'l ho National and local authorities have
better sanitary arrangements than over co
lore, the laws arcinoro piactlcal, and sani
tary science has more resources than for
merly. 'Iho sanitary officers throughout the
country aro fully alert but some ot
them seem to forget that one of tho
most Important duties ot an officer charged
with sanitary administration Is the preven
tion of panic, which paral)zestho Industries
' and dries tip tho channels of trade, and does
almost ns much harm ns tho epidemic Itself."

Qi'ahantink, 8. 1., Aug. 27. La Touralue,
the French line steamship which sailed last
Saturday from tho cholera-Infected port of
Havre, has, contrary to the expectations ot
the quarantine and Health officers of New
I York, escaped tho unenviable distinction ot
being the first ship to Introduce the plaguo to
I the Western Continent.
(leave apprehensions have been felt by
I (Jiiai antlue officials because advices had been
received from Havre that Immigrants who
had travelled with those who had secured
passage on I.aTouialne, and who had been
compelled to remain in port on uccount, ot tho
crowded condition of tho steerage, had been
sclrcd with tho cholera before the bhlp loft
alio harbor. The suspicion that thoso who had
taken passage mut necessarily bo infected
aiidthat thoshln would be plague-ridden be
lore reaching this port appeared to be well
founded nna was shared by the health au
thorities on this side of the ocean.
1 ho Quarantine officials w etc fully prepared
to find some ot the 41A stceraco passemrers
on the French Unci sick or Infected.
When laTouialne dropped anchor oft
(Quarantine at fi.net this morning, Health
