New Yonn, Sept 27. Cholera ngain
broke out on the pest ship Bohemia to-day,
t.e new cases liaring developed. Tho pa
tients were removed to Swinburne Islaud.
Health officers to-day again declared the
city of Xew York to be free from the
plasjne. To-day's cases at Quarantine are
the first for seven days. No sickness is re
porte i from Camp Low, Sandy Hook.
Dr. Jenkins was down the bay on board
the Patrol with Superintendent lirrnes and
Inspector Williams. He has just returned
and says that if yesterday had not been so
stormy the passengers would have been out
of the Bohemia.
Shortly after Dr. Jenkins arrived at
Quarantine lie received the following bulle-
tin lrom Dr. Byron: "Transferred from
sick to convalescent ward, 2; admitted lrom
Bohemia. 2; died in hospital, 1; sick pa
tients, convalescents and suspects. 32;

admission." At 11:50 Dr. Byron tele
graphed that he iiad removed three more
cholera patients to Swinburne Island from
the Bohemia. They are Wilhelm Latz,
ajed 4 ye.irs; Johnna Milksearie, 6 years,
and Carl Gassman, 21 years.
But tho City Is Still Free.
The Board of He.ilth, in their 4 o'clock
bulletin this afternoon, say that there have
been no cases of cholera in this city since
September 10. There were 812 immigrants
landed at Ellis Island to-day from the
steamships Kugia, Wjoming and Scandia.
The business of registering the new ar
rivals showed the ravages the cholera had
made in several families. Augusta Zim
merman landed with her 8-year-old son.
She lost three children during the voyage.
Annie-Zhiga landed from the Eugia'with
two children. When two days in port her
Ibnsband was stricken with the plasrue.

"o Sickness Smr at Sandy Hook.
Sunreon Major Sawtelle to-day tele
aphed to Health OfScer Jenkins that he
is prepared to receive passengers into the
mp, and received a reply in which Dr.
ukius stated that the Herman's passen
rs would arrive here early to-morrow
morning. Commandant Sawtelle says tie
is prepared to accommodate 1,100 passen
gers, and has so notified Dr. Jenkins. No
sickness is reported at Sandy Hook.
The cabin passengers of the Hormannia
to-day pre-ented Captain Heblch with a
beautifully encrcsfed testimonial, thanking
the capiaiu and his officers for their be
havior. Accompanying the testimonial was
a handsome watch and chain.
A dispatch from Chicago says: Er-Sur-geon
John 15. Hamilton, who has beeu con
spicuous in organizing Camp Low lor
cholera suspects, returned to his office to
lay. He said: "The great trouble is that
Sew York attempted to handle this matter
alone when the Government should have
had charge. It is unfair to-the rest of the
country, when 93 per cent of immigrants
v. ho land in Xevr York do not stop there,
that New York should take upon herself
the whole authority in this matter. The
quarantine was inefficiently equipped. If
the Government had had control it would
have been impossible for a case of cholera
to have reached the State. I think there
Hill be some legislation on this point."

STILL AS OPEN QUESTION.
Connecticut's Supreme Court Won't De
cide Whether- the General Assembly
Has Lost Its Power to Declare an Elec
tion A Decision on the Ballots in Dis
pute New Haven, Coxj-.,Sept.27. The Su
preme Court of the State filed its deoision
in the quo warranto cases of Phelan versus
Walsh and Sanger versus Henry to
day. A question whether the General
Assembly ot Connecticut has lost its power
to declare an election is passed by
without discussion. The Court says on this
point: "We purposely refrain from express
ing any opinion upon these points and; wish
to have it distinctly understood that they
remain open questions." The different
classes of ballots in dispute are discussed,
and the opinion ot the majority of the court,
summarized, is as follows:
The Superior Court is advised that the
billots rejected by the moderators, Riving
no reason therefore and those rejeoted
.J or being double should be counted in
estimating the wbolo number of votes
cast; that the errors In the count should
be corrected; that the "for" ballots, so
called, siionld be counted: that the folded
o- creased ballots in cortaln cases
should be rejected; that nil the ballots
tcjected because of alterations In 10
snect to the offlco of 1'iobato Judge,
some of which were designated for one dis
trict ami scut to another, and ballots with a
blank nftcr tho offlco of Judge of Pro
bate, should bo counted; that tho 2S7
ballots In the town of Litchfield,
upon which there was some controversy
because of irregularities in the spell
ing of a name, are legal ballots and should
be couuteO; that the ballots In the town of
Lyme, in which the letter "K" in the last
name of tho candidate for Juduo or Pro
bate was eraed are legal and should
be counted; timt the four ballots cast in the
town of Hartland for Juago of Probate and
which carried misters placed In a rather un
nsunl manner should bo lejectcd; and that
the 14 h.ulots in tho town ot Winchester, re
jected hy tho Moderator because they had
pasters written in ink, wero properly ie
jecteit. Judges Seymour and Fenn declare that
they cannot concur in that portion of the
opinion ot the majority of the court which
holds that the Superior Court should have
counted ballots which the evidence of the
counters' returns and Moderators' certifi
cates show were rejected and excluded from
the count for being double.
STE0NG NEW YORK DENOUNCERS.
People's Tarty Men Attack the Powers That
Be and Those That Were.
Svraccse, N. Y., Sept 27. The People's
Party State Convention was called to order
in this city to-day by Henry A. Hickes, of
New York City. Chairman Hickes read an
address, followed by the platform of prin
ciples, which denounced the action of the
Governor of this State in calling out at the
demand of the railroad corporations the en
tire military force of the State for the pur
pose of overawiug the 475 switchmen who
were on strike, and states that they believe
the strike of the switchmen was simply a
pretext for this display of force, and that
the true reason for it was to serve notice on
organized workmen that in any conflict with
organized capital, no matter how just its
cause, the whole uower of the State was at
the disposal of the latter.
Three resolutions were offered, one de
claring that the railroads oi the State had
forfeited their franchises; the second de
nounced Governor Flower for vetoeing the
capal appropriation for the improvement of
navigation; denounced ChaunceyM. Depew,
for making secret, wanton, freight rate
discriminations; and the third resolution
denounced the monopolies which had been
organized and extended under the adminis
trations of Cleveland and Harrison, re
ferring particularly to the Reading Coal
Combine and Standard Oil Trust.

at Bordentown, three boys, victims of a
dull-witted woman's insane rage. Three
weeks ago a German woman came to Bor
dentown with a 5-year-old boy. It was said
that she came from Mt Holly and that she
was recently discharged from Jail there.
She rented a small house, and in a few days
was ejected by the landlord. William
Boyd, who occupied one-half of a little
double honse on Chestnut street, took the
forlorn woman and her child into his house

and pretty. He won the hearts of all who

Sho Gave Herself Up.
At 2 o'clock in the afternoon Marshal
Jobs was standing in front of the office of a
lumber vard, where a woman addressed him
and said that she wanted to be arrested.
"What for?" nsked the Marshal.
"For murder," she answered. "I have
just killed three children."
Marshal Jobs thought that the woman
was crazy, but, after plying her with ques
tions, he became assured that she was tell
ing the truth, and locked her up in the
town jail. Then he went to the doublo
house on Chestnut street and broke into the
apartments occupied by John Allen. Dis
covering his mistake he forced the door of
the adjoining house and searched the house.
When he opened the kitchen door he stood
aghast Lving upon the floor in .the filth v
and miserably furnished room Kre three
little bodies, with their faces cevered with
a torn fragment ot soiled cloth.
The bodies i ere laid out with caro and
arranged according to size, in a manner
showing method akin to madness Marshal
Jobs placed a Constable in charge of the
bodies and hurried back to the jaiL He
asked the prisoner why she killed her child,
and she faid that it' fell down stairs and
struck its head against a flat iron. Then be
asked her about the death of the other
children, and she said that she killed them
to put them out of trouble.
Strangled Them With a Towel.
She spoke imperfect English, and the
Marshal had trouble in making out what
she meant. When he asked her why she
covered the faces of the children with the
cloth, she said it was to keep the flies ofl
She was not under the influence of liquor,
and Marshal Jobs said that she did not ap
pear to be demented. She refused to tell
her name, however, and was reticent about
her previous life. It was learned that she
had been known in Mt Holly as Lena
It is evident that all three of the children
were strangled witli a towel, which was
found on a shelf in the kitchen. But her
five-year-old boy has a wound nnon the
back of his head which was evidently in
flicted with a smoothing iron which was
found upon the table in the kitchen. BOger,
the father of the two younger children, is a

there was considerable emotion displayed,

Marshal Jobs that her age was 29. But she
looks ten years older. She was undoubt

she has been living cither in jail or in
squalid quarters for several years. Marshal

Brunswick, Ga., Sept 27. Brunswick
was visited this morning by a cloudburst
and a terrifio electric storm that damaged
$20,000 worth of property, filled several
streets with water four feet deep, penned
the citizens in their homes and stores and
threatened to inundate an entire block of
three-story brick houses
This morning lightning struck the Ogle
thorpe Hotel, dania'in? it S150. Imme
diately after this stroke the cloudburst fell,
and in ten minutes' time the streets were a
foot deep in water. Bain fell in such tor
rents, the sky w as so dark, the wind so
fierce and driving that every store was
closed. Two street cars attempted to get
back to the stables, but .floated oil the
track, the drivers cutting the mules loose
and landing themselves as best they could.
The lumber yards had lumber drifting away
in stacks. Bailroad tracks were washed up
in the city and cars overturned. Nine bar
rooms and, several dance halls, barbershops
and billiard saloons are under water. The
occupants of the stores and offices on New
Castle street go to their business in boats
and teams. The fire department headquar
ters is under water, and every public office
is cut off from approach.

A Gang of Five Captured by a Skillfully
Planned Internal Revenue Bald.
Memphis, Sept 27. A well-planned in
ternal revenne raid resulting in the total
breaking up of one of the boldest and most
successful bands of moonshiners in West
Tennessee took place yesterday morning at
daybreak. So quietly was the affair con
ducted that the illicit distillers were not
only absolutely ignorant of the coming of
the officers, but allowed themselves to be
captured red-handed in the act of making
illicit liquor at a distillery hidden away in
the hilly fastness of McNalry county.
The result of the expedition was the cap
ture of five of the notorious' Jackson gang
of moonshiners, including among the num
ber a son and nephew of old Jackson and a
cousin of Bube Burrows, the outlaw of
former days, and the destruction of their

NEW CURE FOB CANCERS.
The Inoculation Treatment Tried With Suc
cess in One Instance Farther Investiga
tion Under Way by Two of the Leading
Physicians or New York.
New York, Sept 27. Sptdoi.1 A
man and a woman are now undergoing
treatment for cancerby a new method in the
cancer hospital. This disease has always
been regarded as incurable, and if
the new method which is
being tried in these two cases
proves a success, it will revolutionize one
branch of surgery. The new cure is on the
inoculation principle. Of late years.it has
been suspected that cancer, like consump
tion and smallpox, is the result of the in
vasion of the human body by a specifio
germ. It was noted by medical men that
erysipelitic conditions were prevalent with
The line of reasoning developed the
hypothesis that the erysipelas person was
the element ot cancerous disease, and it was
but a step further to reason that inocula
tion of the patient with the cultiva
tion of this person would cure the
disease. The cultivation is said to be ef
fected by the usual methods in sterilized
gelatine, by which are produced the bacte
ria which destroy the death-dealing power
of the cancer bacteria. Such in brief is the
theory in which Drs. William T. Bull
and Colcy are working at the cancer hos
pital. The experiment has not gone far enouch
yet to hazard any certain prediction whether
tho hypothesis is well founded. It was only
in the latter part of July that the first
patient, a woman, was selected upon whom
to try the new medical idea. She was suf
fering from carcinoma of the breast,
one of the multiform developments
of cancerous nature. The signs
of the disease have mostly
disappeared. Another case, that of a man,
is being tried at the same institution, but
the experiment has not as yet proceeded far
enough to ascertain what the result is likely
to be. The doctors in charge have done
everything possible to prevent the pub
lication of ther researches in those cases,
which are said to be tho first ever tried in

its cordial satisfaction with the action of

that the report be adopted was seconded,
Dr. Pitzer, of Washington, said:
"Would there be any objection to put

amendment to the report the original reso
lution which he had offered anil which had
been referred to the Business Committee.
Dr. Kerr's resolution was much more flat
tering to Congress. It read:
How the Stronger Ttcsolntlon Beads.
This Council declares Its admiration of the
recent action of the Congress of the United
States In lavor of closing tho Fair of the
Columbian Exposition on the Lord's Day;
expiesses tho aident hope that there shall
be no roversal of this action, and, as a coun
cil holding the consensus of the relormod
churches, specialiv rejoices in the decision,
as it illustrates the great Scrlptuial doctrine
of the binding oblumtlon or tho Lord's Day
on all peoplo, and prepares the way for
other action ami refonns which would roc
cniizo tho supremacy of the Lord Jesus
Chi 1st over nations, and promote civil ana
religious prosperity of all communities.
Dr. Kerr's concluding sentence in sup
port of his amendment was, "We find fault
with the civil authorities when they do
wrong; let us commend them when they do
Dr. Hall, of New Tork, sprang to the
platform and suggested that the question be
roierred back to the committee, saying,
"We, in this body, must set an example to
all t)ie churches in order, wisdom and
Itev. Dr. George, of Beaver Falls, Pa.,
denied that Dr. Kerr's resolution intro
duced the matter of Church and State.
Other Powers Deserve Credit.
John Charlton, M. P., wanted the fair
closed on Sunday, but he objected to Con
gress being singled out for admiration.
Great Britain deserved some recognition
for what she had done in the past, and sev
eral States of the Union had also placed
themselves on record.
After this exceedingly lively debate votes
were taken, and the milder resolution of
the committee was adopted.
The afternoon session of the council was
devoted to discussion on "Spiritual Life."
The delegates were beginning to leave and
the attendance of visitors was not as large
as usual. "The Belation and Duty of the
Church to Outside Societies Doing Chris
tian Work," wa.s the subject of discussion
at the evening session. By the speakers the
existence of outside societies was attributed
to the failure of the church in some ot the
most important fields ot Christian effort.
The importance of bringing these auxil
iaries under the direction ot the church was
emphasized, although, the speakers ad
mitted, they did not fail to-recognize the
good these organizations are accomplishing.
The severest criticism of some of the
methods of organizations and individuals
came from Mr." Edgar, who did not regard
favorably unordained evangelists, such as
