When Dr. Htlmaon had examined hla patient
I gareportecl that Col. Waring condition was
ot at all aerione. but refrained from making
tar definite atatement aa to the Datura of the
alteiae. Tor the next twenty-four hourn lie
watched the put lent'a condition oHrofuHy, and
eaThuredar morning reported to the Board of
lealth that ho teared that Ool. Waring waa
offering from yellow fever. Aa aoon aa the
mm was reported. Dr. Alonro Hlauvolt. Chief
of the Bureau of Contagious Discuses, and Dr.
White of the Marine Hospital, onn of theibeat
authorities on yol low fever in this part ot the.
counter, were directed to Immediately visit
Col Waring In consultation with Dr. Htlmaon

The report of Dra. Blauvert and White con
(rmadthe suspicions of Dr. Htliuson, and the
oft rigid quarantine of the Waring apart

t plated outside the main doorof tbe apartment.

health auihoritiea waa allowed to go in or out.
The door leading from the kitchen of the
apartment to the dumbwaiter waa scaled up.
aid all provisions were left outside th door of
the apartment and handed in by the guard.
Mrs. Waring or the nurse prepared the food
for the household. The patient waa thus aa
completely Isolated aa he would have been in
the Isolation ward of a hospital. The other
tenants were so well satisfied with tbe pre
cautions taken to prevent the spread of the
disease that none of thorn thought it at all
aecessary to move from the house.
On Thursday afternoon Col. Wiring's tem
perature went up to 103V but hla general con
altlon was so favorable that this fact did not
Particularly alarm the attending physician. On
I fciday Dr. Htlmson announced that the pa-
Hear condition still continued favorable.
II Jarly on Friday evening the doctor noticed a
Carnage which lie did not like and determined
totpend the night with hia patient. At 10:30
o'clock the unfavorable symptoms increased,
aid from that time until 2 o'olook yesterday
momlDt Col. Waring grew gradually worae.
At that hour he waa taken with nausea and the
doctor aaw that the black vomit had aet la. He
then told Mrs. Waring and Mr. Yates that there
was little hope of recovery.
From the time the vomiting began it con
tinued almost uninterruptedly, and the patient
was never fully conscious afterward. At 7
o clock reatenlay morning it waa seen that the
J?d wu near, and Mr. Yatea telephoned to
tils wife who was at the residence of her
lather. George H. Davis of 200 West Eighty
fourth street, the following message:
Be brave. The Colonel la sinking."
iiiirij-nvi' minutes later, uoi. waring, after
another fit of vomiting, sank wearily back upon
his pillowand died. The nurae and Dr. Ktliuson
were the only ones at the bedside when death
came. Mrs Waring and Mr. Yates ware In an
Mjolnlog room. Immediately after Col. Waring
dled,Dr.tltnson reported the death to Dr. Blau

The Board of Health wlD pTeilge Iteelf. a it
has evr since it hsslsen In power, to exercise
every effort that skilled talent can use to pre
vent the spread of this fever. On being notified
this morning, immediately after the death of
Col. Waring. I Instructed the Ranltarv Super
intendent, Or. C P. Roberts, to have the re
malna Incased In a metallic coffin, as pro
vided In the sanitary code of this dopnrtinont.
and to call his staff around him to destroy or
fumigate every vestige of even-thing in t'o'.
Wnrlng's mom or in contact with Ills terson or
his attendants. The lioni of Health Will guar
antee Ihnt the disease will not spread further
than the death of Col. Waring."
This was followed by a statement fiom Dr.
William T. Jenkins Chairman of the Sanitary
Committee of the Board of Hea'th. which waa
" I pon a report being made to this depart
ment that Col. Waring was suffering from a
disease which reaemuloil yellow fever. I. aa
Chairman of the Sanitary Committee, sent
for the moat experienced man In this dis
ease known to me, and directed him
to accompany the Chief the Bureau of
Contagions Diseases and the Deputy Health
Officer to the house of Col. Waring. In
doing tilts I had In view not only tho securing
of the best opinion upon tic case, but to give
his attending physician the latest and most
approved ir atment of thl disease, realising
froni previous experience t at true eases of
yellovv levr-Imported Into this cliii'iite almost
Invar. ably die.
' I also took the immediate stand flint n -mnval
of sin I, a ease from his minrtinci twonld
eortalmv accelerate his death, and thu' tl" er
ho circumstances should he b.. removed. Titin
is a radical departure from the previous ruling
of this department, as instanced in the case of
froctor. tho astronomer. There nn ninny
other oaaes where the pntlont lias been tronied
in a pr vat house without the extension o' the
disease. In my own experience on hainhurne
Island I loth had cases and performed autop
sies on yellow fever patients where neither the
attendants, nurses or others contracted the
"The conclusion Is positive, that In this
climate and under the conditions of municipal
sanitation and regulations enforced by this de
partment, there Is not the slightest danger of
the extension of this disease. If a s condnry
case were llkelv to occur, whleh Is improbable.
It wou d be oniy among the members of the
immediate family, who had been constantly
eugug'-d in nursing Col. Waring, and. BO far )ut i
is known. Vrs. Waring, hersell en immune, in
the only person who was so exposed.
"The diagnosis In this case wan positive:
there remained no doubt as to the identity of
the disease, after the report of the diagnos
ticians who were sent to Col. Warlng's House.
It was reported by them as undeniably yellow
fever, and not as simply a suspicious uuee :
consequently the notion taken was b.iscdona
positive knowledge ot the character of the dis
ease with which this department had to deal.
" Tbe three men who aaw this case were pos
itive as to the diagnosis. Dr. Btltneon concur
ring. There was. therefore, no question that
this 'may be a case of yellow lever, n appeared
in an interview In the dalh press ; it positively
was. At the request of Mrs. Waring tho body
is taken charge of hy the Board of Health 'or
removal to Swinburne Island, where it will be
cremated. Mrs. Waring baa tendered her
thanks to the Department of Health for the
courteous treatmont accorded her."
George Waring. Jr., was bom In 1'oundridge,
N V.. on .Inly 4, 1833. He waa educated iu
I'oughkecpsie for a civil engineer, and when he
had completed his engineering studies he
studieil agricultural chemistry under the late
l'rof. Jiiuies J. Mtipes. He took an especial in
terest in this science, and when '21 years
of age be went on a lecturing tour
through Vermont and Maine, addressing him
self particularly to the farmers and giving
them new and valuable ideas upon agriculture.
Horace Oreelev had at that time a farm at
Chappaqua, N. V.. which was a hobby of his.
Young Bring attracted his attention, and Mr.
Urreley offered to him the superintendency of
this farm, which he accepted.
Two years later, in 1H 7, he waa appointed
Agricultural and Drainage Engineer of Central
Park. He planned the present system of drain
age for the Park and caused to be planted the
two rows ot elms whleh now stand on either
aide, of the Mall. He was employed by the Park
department when the oivlt war began, and
lie resigned hla place and enlisted in thu
Garibaldi Hussars, a cavalry regiment. Of
this he was made a Major and served
three months with the Army of the
Potomac. At the end of that time he
was transferred to the Department of tbe
Southwest aa a Major of Cavalry under Gen.
John C. Fremont. He waa detailed for recruit
ing service, with station at St. Louis, and raised
from flint Immediate section of Missouri six
troops of cavalry, called the Fremont Hussars.
These, with the Benton Hussars, were formed
(nto the Fourth Missouri Cavalry, of which Ma
jor Waring was made the Colonel, and he com
manded the regiment throughout the remain
der of the war.
When he Waa mustered out of the service in
I860, ha resumed the practice of his profession,
and in 1W7 he waa appointed the manager of
J he Ogden Farm, a sort of school for scientific
arming at Newport. B. I., founded by the man
for whom it was named. While he was the
manager of this farm be was frequently con -suited
on matters relating to drainage and
sewerage, and in 1878. when the yellow fever
epidemic was raging in Memphis, be was called
there to plan and put In a new system of sew
erage. Because of the peculiar topography
ot the city, the work waa difficult, but
Col. Waring solved tbe problem and gave
to the city a sewerage system by which the
houae drainage and surface drainage were dis
posed of separately. Thla system, which altar
ward became known aa the Waring sewerage
system, transformed Memphis from one ot the
moat unhealthy to one of the most healthy
cities in tbe Mouth. The system was adopted
in the cities of Brunswick, Ga.and Birming
ham. Ala., and in many towns and cities of this
State, including Ickport. Glens Falls and Sar
atoga. On account of hla prominence as a sanitary
engineer Col. Waring waa made a member of
the National Board of Health In 188-2. On Dec.
30, 1884, Mayor Strong surprised everybody by
announcing that he had appointed Co1. Waring
Commissioner of Street Cleaning. Thla de-
Eirtment had long been tne bnne of every
ayor. The streets were not cleaned, and
usually, after the appointment of each new
Commissioner, the public growled so loudly
about the care of the streets that the Commia
aloner concluded to resign.
The real reason for this state of affairs was
said to be that the appropriation waa nowhere
near adequate for the work to be done. W hen
Col, Waring assumed charge of the depart
ment, he immediately let It he known that he
and nobody else was street Cleaning Commis
sioner. Then he instituted reforms. He let it
be known that political influence could never
aecure a job in his department, and he waa
growled at by the politicians. He put the
street sweepers In white canvas uniforms and
was ridiculed, Then he asked for an appro
priation for cleaning the streets that simply
appalled the Board of Katlmuto and Apportion
ment. They told him he could not possibly have
S3 much money. Ho replied that he couldn't
o with less, and he got what he wanted.
Then he cleaned the streets as they had never
been cleaned before. In the spring of 1890,
when he had his department thoroughly or
ganised' he had a parude of tbe employees of
the department nod all the carts. He rode at
the head of his men. and the line of march was
one continuous ovation for the Colonel and his
men. When the arrangements were being
made for the horse show ot IBitO. he got
the committee to offer prizes for horses und
carts in the Street Cleaning Department. This
Sss repeated last year una so was the parade.
j. Waring inspired In overy man under him
a feeling of pride iu the department, aud the
pride of the men was shared by every citizen of
the city. Col. Warltig'a famoasastrcetcleanor
spreod tbroughout.the country, and delega
tions from distant cities came here to see his
work and copy his ideas.
In lMiiT. while Col. Waring was still Com
mlssihaer. he was nominated for Comptroller
on the Henry George ticket, but declined the
nomination. It was reported at the time that
he preferred to continue at the head of the
Htreel Cleaning Department, and It was said
that if he d lined the George nomination and
Tammany Hull electod lis Mayor he would be
retained as Mre. t Cleaning Commissioner.
TJiere whs probably never anv such under
standing, (ol. Waring Himself denied that
there wns. At anv rule hi, wns obliged to give
way to the present Commissioner, .tlways a
Tammany man This fall he was nominated
hy tile I H Irons' Cnion for M'nte Engineer und
Surveyor, and iv.-s the candidate of that party
for that office when lie died.
Wiien President tlcKlnley decided to appoint
a special I'orpmlss. iu to choose camp sites for
the American army of occupation and for sug
gesting plana for improving the sanitary cou
dltloii of Ilavana and other Cuban cities. Col.
Warmg whs the first man selected und waa
made President of the commission. He received
his appointment on Oct. H. and loft for Havana
shortly afterward He made n most careful
inspection of the Cuban capital, visited the
purtsof theclly where the sanltun condition
wus the worst and did tho same thing in other
eltlcs. He was evisisnd to vellnw fever prob

But he did the work he was sent thero todo,

Wa have received from Mr. Harwood Hunt
ington, Ph. D an axpsrt chemist, who la also'
a merer r of tbe Oonneotkrat bar, a pamphlet
entitled "Soma Kotos on Chemical Jurispru
dence." whleh la dsvotod to tho eonsldera
tton of the lav of patonta In Its relation to
ebemlatry. Tho troattse Is In aubatanoo a
brief digest of American patent oases In
volving questions of chemical sclenoo. aad
ought to ba useful to any ohemlst who haa
occasion to prepare or assist' in preparing
specifications tor patonta for In ventloas In tho
domain of chemistry. The author truly says
in hia preface: "It la usually regarded aa a
very simple thing to draw a patent, but the
truth ta that it takes a very experienced law
yer so to draw a patent that his client will not
speak reproachfully of him." He disavows
any Idea of enabling his scientific readers to
become their own patent lawyers, but pro-,
fessos only to givs such a general view of the
relation between patent law and chemistry
aa will aid tho chemical inventor In consult
ing counsel. "In short," ho says, "the moral
of tho whole thing Is, 'Oat good lawyers.' "
This excellent advice should not ba confined
to the field of chemical jurisprudence.
At was predicted In theie columns, tho
California Judges who have considered tho
ease of Mra. Botkln. the San Francisco wo
man who la accused of having committed mur
der in Delaware by sending poisoned candy
throughUhe mall to hsr victim in the latter
State, have reached the conclusion that aho
cannot be sent to Delaware for trial, under
the existing laws governing inter-State ex
tradition. The Federal Constitution pro
vides that "a person charged in any State
With treason, felony or other crime who shall
flee from justice and be found in another
State, shall on demand of the executive au
thority of the State from which he fled be
delivered up. to bo removed to the State hav
ing jurisdiction of the orlme." (Art. IV., sec
tion a.) This provision and the laws enacted
to enforce It plainly contemplate that the per
son to be delivered up shall actually have fled
from the State whoso authorities demand hie
or har rendition. But Mra. Botkln haa never
been in Delaware, aad consequently can
never havt taken flight therefrom. Such an
offence as that ot which ahe ia accused, how
ever, ought to bo punishable aa murder in tha
State from vhlch the poison is despatched.
The Court of Appeals on Tuesday rendered
a decision which is of considerable impor
tance to those tribunals having jurisdiction to
try offenders against the provisions of the
Balnea law. That statute makes a sale of
liquor br a person not having a liquor tax cer
tificate a misdemeanor, punishable by fine,
and also by imprisonment In addition to the
fine, in the discretion of tbe Court. It con
tains no provision, however, for imprisonment
for non-payment of the fine. One Conrad
Shook waa convicted In the County Court of
Dutchess county of selling liquor without hav
ing obtained the prescribed certificate, and the
eounty Judge sentenced him to pay a One of
$300 and in default ot payment to stand com
mitted to the county jail for a term not to ex
ceed 300 days. The defendant waa thereupon
Imprisoned by reason of his failure to pay the
fins. Ho applied to the Supreme Court for a
writ of habeas corpus and was released by Mr.
Justice Barnard ot Foughkeepsie, who held
that ho could not bo held in custody on ac
count ot the non-payment of the One imposed.
The theory of the County Court was that the
ease was governed by the provision of tbe Code
of Criminal Procedure that a judgment Im
posing a line may also direct that the criminal
be Imprisoned until tho fine be paid, for a pe
riod not exceeding one day for each dollar of
the One. ' Judge Barnard held that this had no
application to the Liquor Tax law, and hla
view has bean adoptedjby the Court'ot Appeals,
which afflrtued tbe order discharging the pris
oner. By the decision in the Joint Trafflo Associa
tion case, announced last Monday, the Su
premo Court of the United States adheres to
ita previous ruling In the case of the combina
tion of Bouthwestemlrailroads known as the
Trans-Missouri Association, upholding the
constitutionality ot tha Federal Anti-Trust
law in IU application to railway corporations.
Tbo result Is accepted quite differently br dlf
erent leading railroad men, some appearing to
think that they ean contrive to get along com
fortably in spite of it, while others declare that
railroad business cannot be carried on In ac
cordance with the law aa laid down by the Su
preme Court, and that legislation to miti
gate tho effect ot the decision la imperatively
necessary. One of the principal arguments
pressed upon the court waa that the Anti
Trust law Interfered unwarrantably with the
liberty of the oltlzen to enter into contracts.
Aa to this point, the opinion says: "We do not
think that when the grantees of a publlo .fran
chise are oompeting railroads, seeking the
transportation of men and goods from one
State to another, ordinary freedom ot con
tract In the uae and management of their
property requires the right to combine as one
consolidated and powerful association for the
purpose of stifling competition among them
selves, and thus of keeping their rates and
charges higher than they might otherwise be
under the laws of competition." The decis
ion wis made by five Judgea, three members
of the court dissenting, and Mr. Justice Mo
Kenna taking no part.
Tho constitutionality of the aot of the Legis
lature of 1898 establishing the new county of
Nassau, on Long Island, and providing for ths
election of its county officers this year, haa
been sustained br the Supreme Court in the
Second Judicial Department ; first, br decisions
rendered at Special Term br Mr. Justice Wil
mot M. Smith and Mr. Justice Oaynor, and sec
ondly, on Friday, by a decision of the Appellate
Division in Brooklyn, affirming au order made
by Justice Oaynor to the effect that voters in
tbe territory to be comprised in the new coun
ty could only vote for Nasaau county officers
and not also for countr officers In Queens
county. The court refused to attribute to the
Legislature any idea so unreasonable aa an
Intention to allow the citizens of Oyster Bay,
Hempstead and North Hempstead to vote for
county officers ot two different countlea.
In the eaaa of the death of an army officer
which waa recentlr Investigated br a Coroner
at Kingston, in England, tbe medical men who
made tho post mortem examination expressed
doubt as to whether the deceased had been
poisoned or not, and the lnqueat was ad
journed In order that a ohamloal analrala
might bo made of the contents ot the stomach.
In directing the adjournment tha Coronor told
hla jury that nowadays, it was vary difficult to
ascertain whether a person had swallowed
poison or not. Hs reminded them that Sir
t. Crlchton Browne had Informed tho Phar
maceutical Society that thero were some pol
eons whleh It was Impossible to truce and that
a connoisseur in poisons could commit many
murders without fear of being found out
Ho added that It was very foolish to make this
publlo statement, tor It might have a pernic
ious effect. The idea does not aeem to have
occurred to him that he waa making the atate
ment strrrapuore widely kuown. As a matter of
fact, wa doubt whether there haa ever been a
time when successful poisoning waa more dif
ficult than It la now. The methode of detect
ing this form of crime were never before equal
to what thsy are to-day.
"The Criminal Law Amendment aot of 1898
went Into effeoOn Boglaud.on tha -13th lust.
It. gives to detendanta In orimlnal oases the
right which they have never before enjoyed
in that country ot testifying in their own be
half. Thla ia the must Important reform in
tha English law since ths reconstruction ot
tho judleiarr system in 1H73, and la more im
portant tfcuu that ao far aa its general affect

CRU1KHIIAXKH NOT DIVORCED.
The Jury' rinding Vlndicnl. Both Mrs.
Lowe and Mr. C rulk.limnk.
The jury which spent ten days in the Su
preme Court in Brooklyn In bearing the testi
mony In tha suit of Mrs. Maud Crulksbsnk
against Dr. W. J. Cruikshank for an absolute
divorce and Dr. Cruikahank'a counter suit for
a slmllarrdeeree came Into court yesterday
morning with a verdict on which they had
been deliberating for nearly twenty-three
houri. On all tha questions of alleged guile
submitted In each case tha jury answered
"no," eioept on one point, oa which they found
"not proven." This latter response was re
jected by Justice Jessa Johnson, who presid
ed at the trial, and on his direction and with
the consent ot the jury "not proven was
changed to no." The result of the trial waa,
therefore, a vindication of Mrs. Martha .Dor
tan Lowe, tha co-respondent :la Mrs. Crulk
ahank's ault, as well aa of Mrs. Cruikshank,
who waa accused of improprieties with Beth
A. Keener and Mr. Frankenberg. her lawinr.
Both Mrs. Lowe and Mra. Cruikshank were
in court when the verdict was rendered, and
the former showed considerable emotion. Hhe
was warmlr congratulated by Dr. Cruikshank
8nd her friends over the result. It Is said
iat Dr. Cruikshank himself is gratified over
the outcome of the trial and that there mar
possibly be a reconciliation between him ana
