New Orleans, flepl. 23. A large mob
assembled tonight in front of the Heau

as a yellow fever hospital, and refused
to let the board or health of 1 leers or
Sisters of Charity enter the building.
The school is. now in charge of the police,

city, but one of the handsomest school
houses in New Orleans. The public schools
will probably not open until late in No

closed by order of the hoard of health.
Another large party of Italians were
moved today from the infected houses in
the Italian quarter to the detention camp
at Oakland Park. Tiiey were thoroughly
fumigated and disinfected before being
moved. A strong demuud is being made
tor the closure of the theaters. The
whools have been closed, public meetings
prohibited and even ministers advised not
to hold night services, but the theaters
are open and doing a splendid business. A
proposition Is also before the boatd of
health to stop Cebt collectors from go

Several large factciies here threaten to
shut down if the quarantine is kept up
longer, as thveannot sell their goods away

opened temporary offices in New York and

Health Officer Woodward has no ex

Many people are arriving from the

Gen. Tracy was the original candidate
of the Republican organization. He was
suggested by the party as a good man
for first mayor of Greater New York as
soon as the charter was passed. At tliat
time he said that the office carried with
it too much hard Avbrk, and he would

Gen. Tracy left the city last night after

During his absence he will decide upon
the proffer of the nomination which was

that he would have all but -10 of the

New York, Sept. 23.f-It was said today
that the United Democracy has practically
decided not to nominate candidatesattheir

for this change of aliunde on the part of

be whisperings whlch'bave been growing

on this subject was that a teacher should

The majority may be wrong, the minority

The end ot a university is the propaga

day and retired only after securing a very
large amount of valuable punlder.
I have this news on the most reliable
authority. It was officially communicated
to the captain general and pigeonholed Jn
the office of bis press censors.
The insurgents entered Santiaco de Cuba
most unexp"ctedly to the Spaniard-., on
September 8, by way or EI Sueno, and,
dispersing the detachments f rum the garri
son that attempted to check them, they
advanced to the Marte square, whleh Is In
the heart of the city. There a strong
body of the Spanish garrison was de
feated, and the Spanish took refuge in
the forts. Two Spansih gunboats, which
were in the port,, approached the city to
bombard it upon the- first order from the
Spanish military commander. Meanwhile
the insurgents were plundering the prin
cipal stores and capturing arms and
ammunition from the volunteers who were
scattered through tlie city. When they
had comp.hHed their wort they retitvd, be
cause the bombardment from the Spanish
forts and gunboats would surely damage
the many Cuban families living ia their
own houses in the city.

Clara province He arrived tuo late and
found only twenty-ix empty boxes and
one small open boat left on share by
the filibusters. On returning from the
coast, the insurgents, under Alvanee,
attacked him, and a fierce fight ensued,
in which eleven Spanish guerrillas ot the
"Guentia ot Death," well known through
out the province for their massacre of
paciflcos and their raids on Cuban hos
pitals, fell Into the bands ot the revolu
tionists. Two hours later thoy were
all hanged in a neighboring forest.
