ter in the back of the theater were se
veral, of the Hip Sing tong members
with big 44-callber revolvers concealed
beneath ' their flowing garments.
as the actors on the stage
reached a climax in the play there was
a ■ loud ; explosion quickly followed by
several others in the front of the
theater near the stage. The actors
fletTln terror and the packed audience
Burged as far as it' could toward the
rear 'where several of the Hip Sing
tong began an indiscriminate fusillade
into I the throng. It developed later
that the first explosions were made by
huge firecrackers. Finally in despera
tion'the audience charged on the men
with revolvers and bearing them down,
got. to , the one exit, which was open.
There they fought desperately to reach
the street." The first^ explosions had
"startled the quaVterTand "as the"ltli'eater
toured | its frantic crowd : into Doyer
street 'the .packed tenement houses,
filled -for 'the -most part with Chinese,
but with a sprinkling 'of white men
andl.women, added their crowds and
for the next hour .Chinatown was the
scene|of: the wildest excitement. •'./ : ';

NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 6.— The fever
report today shows a great Improve
ment over' the middle of the week and
the fact that there were only two new
sub foci, one uptown ' and one down
town% is a source of Bpeclal encourage
ment. An effort 1b being made to de
termine the number of cases of fever
under treatment, and allowing ten days,
which Is a liberal estimate for a patient
to. either recover or die, it Is figured out
that there are 233 cases under treatment.
The marine hospital service has not
yet assumed control of . the local
situation, but it is expected to
do so tomorrow: The conditions

ever, that the \ citizens of New Or

is in momentary expectation of receiv
ing the formal order from Surgeon GerT
eral Wyman to take charge.
President Roosevelt and Surgeon Gen
eral Wyman have both been wired by
the citizens' committee of New Orleans
that all of the funds that the service
may require outside of its own stated
expenditures will be supplied by the
people of the city. This action was
taken: at noon at a special meeting of

Gulf Port and Ocean Springs, where he

view of the attitude of the people of

AFRICA HOME OF FEVER
Theory of Officials as to Origin of the
Special to Tha Herald.
I WASHINGTON, Aug. ... 6.— The cur
rent number of Public Health Reports,
published by the service presided over
by Gen. Wyman, contains an article
on yellow fever, which is in part as
"The dispatch printed In the present
issue of the Public Health Reports
from the American consul at Goree-
Dakar, on the west coast 'of Africa, an
area of great epldemlologlcal interest,
reporting the presence of yellow fever
In. Senegal, with an incidental exodus
of " foreigners, draws attention to the
obscure but none the less important
question of the initial home of yellow
fever. Early historians record epi
demics both In Africa and the West
Indies prior to the advent of the white
man, outbreaks which, though not
proven to be yellow fever, might easily
have been that disease. In favor lof
the' theory of the African origin of
yellow fever Is the circumstance that
when the West Indies were first set
tled the disease was unknown In the
Islands; that later It broke out, pre
vailed for rf time and then disappeared
and that at the present time most of
the Antilles are unusually healthy for
tropical islands and present ' no evi
dence of being essentially endemic
Beats of tho disease. For these reasons
many writers believe that the original
home of yellow fever must be looked
for outside of America and maintain
that' It wns first Introduced Into the
weßtern world by slave ships from the
west coast of Africa.'
Ooree.Dakar Fever Hotbed
"Dakar, where\the appearance of
yellow fever is at present reported, Is
situated on the extreme point of Cape
Verde, In the French colony of Sene
gal, of which It Is one of the chief
towns, one and one-half miles north of
Goree, the two places often being
known by the compound nama Goree-
Dakar. Dakar has a population of
about 3500. It la connected by a rail
road 163 miles long with St. Louis, the
residence of the ' governor. St. Louis
LO9 ANGELES, CAL., MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 7, 1905.
Is situated at the mouth of the Sene
gal. The first authentic accounts of
yellow fever in Africa are descriptions
of an epidemic that prevailed at St.
Louis In 1778, and was traced . to Im
portation from Sierra Leone.
"Writers who adhere to the theory of
the West Indian origin of yellow fever
discredit | all chronicles of , previous
prevalences In Africa, declaring that
the gulf of Mexico hns always been
the headquarters of the disease, and
affirm that the pestilences that occur
red In ] West Africa before 1778 were
not j yellow fever. . However this may
be, It Is clear ; that the accounts of
these early epidemics on both sides of
the ocean are sufficiently inexact to
cause a wide division of opinion among
medical historians. Of more recent
prevalences of yellow fever in West
Africa there can be no doubt. The
gold coast and portions of the Garbla
and Senegal coasts have been so fre
quently .visited that It does not seem
at all Incredible that the disease is at
present endemlcally fixed on those
sections and that the succeeding out
breaks, have not In all cases been due
to a fresh importation of Infection. ;
Reports Repeated Outbreaks
i "Id a recent foreign office publica
tion the British vice consul at Grand
Bassam discusses the extensive pre
valence of yellow fever in that' French
colony In 1593, and says that- thf v dis
ease had reappeared again and again
in such continuous and disastrous out
breaks that In 1899 it was proposed to
abandon the town completely. In 1900
there ,was • a severe prevalence at
"Owing to , the recent rumors of yel
low fever on the west coast of Africa, a
request was made June 12, 1905, to the
consul general at Monrovia, Liberia, for
a report on 'the prevalence of the dis
ease. The British vice consul at Grand
Bassam states that in '1903 the mor
tality was no less than 60 per cent of
the. population. . Quite ■'. recently '"steps
have been taken for Jhe extermination
of mosquitoes at Grand Bassam, at
which point. the marshy land does not
enter, the .'coast farther than about 200
yards! r fv'V '' . : .. '_ v ;' :■' ''.■•"■•
" Unfted""3tateV "Consul 'at" Sierra
Leone,', writing at the. beginning of .the
former, extensive epidemic, ■ say's that
the -infected' strip extended from the
Gold coast on. the east up to and in
cluding , Half Jack on the west. The
west African islands have suffered from
time to. time from yellow fever, which,
howeveri',- does not appear to have a
tend inward' on ■ the African j con
tinent. Three .years ago the consul at
Teneriffe reported that the strictest
kind of a quarantine was being main
tained in , the '■ Canary Islands against
arrivals from the French Ivory coast. ■
| "The health of Dakar, where yellow
fever' ls now reported present, Is not
unimportant to : the western hemis
phere. It Is the only true port of Sene
gal, and Is visited by Atlantic steamers
on their way from ■ France to South
America. In constant coaßtwise com
munication- with Sierra Leone and
places to the southeast and north, !t
Is in position to receive or transmit con

trade route . between Bordeaux and
Pernambuco (thirteen days) and Rio de

open roadstead, where vessels anchor

is a bar that renders the port of. St.
