New York is Greatly Worried Over the
PrsseEce of the Cholera.
THE DISEASE DREADED
The United States, New York State
and City Health Officers Taking
Strenuous Methods to Prevent the
Spread of the Terrible Malady in
The United States, New York State
and City medical authorities have
been working night and day for the
past week or more in and around
New York city to prevent the spread
of the dread Asiatic cholera, which
has already claimed several victims
at the Swinburne quarantine station
near that city. All suspects are be
ing held at the station. The situa
tion is serious, as cholera spreads
with great rapidity when it gets a
foothold in a country.
Every possible effort is being made
by this government to prevent the
inroads of cholera to the United
States. With the most rigid quar
antine In force In New York, the
Federal public health service has
strengthened its Inspection abroaa
and detailed instructions have been
issued to all health officials as to the
best means' of facing the menace. As
sistant Surgeon General is watching
the situation here tor the public
health service, keeping n close touch
with Surgeon General Wyman and
co-operatng with Dr. Doty at quar
antine. All vessels arriving In this
country are .being thoroughly in
At Palermo,,Naples, ar.d other Ital
ian ports, cholera Is epidemic. Tun
dreds of victims have died from with
in one to 24 hours after contract
ing the disease. On the steamship
sailing from Italy to the United
States, the Italian government, try
ing Its 'best to co-operate with the
American health officials, sena spec
. ial health officers to observe any pas
sengers who may show signs of
cholera. These officers have been of
valuable assistance to the American
officials. Quite a large ni\nber of
shdps have been held in quarantine
at' Swinburne and Hoffman islands
the past two weeks, no passengers
being permitted to enter the por* 01
Cholera has developed among some
of the passengers after they have
been in quarantine for over a week,
which emphaefzes the fact that the
strickest sort of guard must be kept
on passengers from Italian ports.
Dr. Doty said regarding a visit from
one of the bacteriological experts of
Gen. Walter Wyman's Marine Hospi
tal corps at Washington:
"The'visit of this expert shows the
increased precautionary methods
which are being taken by the United
States Government all along the
coast to prevent Italy's present out
break of cholera from entering thiB
country. The Government is going
Into the (bacteriological side of this
threatened cholera Invasion -with un
"The thing In fighting cholera
Is to isolate each case as soon as it
is suspected, and, secondly, to take
care that there is no local infection,
like the contamination of the water
supply, in the place where the sus
pect qases are isolated. That is
why I detained all the passengers of
the Moltke, although at the time
there were no absolute cases of
cholera among them. I let the crew
take the vessel back to Europe, but
refused to allow any of them to come
"Great precautions are also being
taken at Italian ports to keep the
cholera from leaving them and get
ting to this country. The American
and Italian governments and the
steamship companies themselves are
combining to segregate all prospec
tive passengers on large floats in
Italian harbors for several days be
fore the ships actually sail for this
country. Preliminary symptoms of
illness are carefully watched for. All
private stocks of foodstuffs and fluids
aretaken away from the passengers
and bacteriological examinations inj
many cases are made.
Cholera, the prime cause of which;
is one of the most perplexing ques- j
tion3 with which scientists have to
deal, originated in the East Indies
and was not known to migrate for
more than 1,000 years. It did not
spread In Europe unti! 1830, when
it created terrible ravages The
Russians took it from India through
couriers ard stage coaches. Cholera
is usually ushered in by vomiting
and griping pains in the stomach.
Death follows in from one to 24
hours. If life is retained longer than
this time, the patient may recover.
A large percentange of the cases die.
Caused by Booze.
Charlie Trent, of Durham, N. C,
aged 22, and Bennie Blackman, of
Florence, S. C, aged IS, both white,
were instantly killed in the Coast
Line's freight yards at Florence Sat

it is supposed were under the influ
ence of liquor and had lain down on
the track, where they went asleep.

have averted the whole trouble if he

the purpose of the President to put

by the President's refusal to permit
the Secretary of Agriculture to longer
sidestep responsibility, as he -has

the detention hospital on Gallup's
Island Thursday. She took into her
home as lodgers a few weeks ago
two sailors who were members of
the crew of a steamer supposed to
have sailed from an Italian port. The
sailors subsequently were taken ill
and disappeared. Efforts are being
made to find them.

Senator E. D. Smith gave out the

from the department of agriculture
putting the condition at 88.2 per

a ten year average of 80 per cent.
Also, that the acreage of cotton was
about 35,000,000 acres. To quote

to have done, from the agricultural
department, it carried with it offi
cial weight, and therefore, was cal
culated to have vastly more effect
upon the market than any private
guess could have. I, therefore, this
morning, interviewed Secretary Wil

occur in effecting the final yield ov

It was on July 21, 1S61, just 50
years ago, that Bull Run ,or the first
battle of Manassas, was fought. The
Confederates, under Johnson, were
accredited with a decisive victory ov
er the Union forces, under McDowell,
the retreat of the Federals leaving
practically a clear road to Washing
ton for the Confederates, it is said,
had they chosen to continue their
advance on the Capital.
. This was the first real battle of
the war, and its result awakened the
North for the first, time to a realiza
tion of what the secession of the
Southern States meant. It was here
that "Stonewall" Jackson gained
the name which will be associated
with his memory for all time.
In August, IS62, Manassas was
again the scene of a bloody battle.
Lee and Pope contended for the mas
tery. As in the former battle, the
Federals were terribly beaten, the
Confederates capturing thousands of
prisoners and millions of dollars
worth of stores, thousands or. small
arms and many cannon . The battle
lines in the second battle wee re
versed from those of the first battle.
The jubilee reunion was planned |
by committees of the Grand Army
of the Republic and the United Con
federate Veterans. Interestiag events
have taken place each day, sessions
-of the national organization of "The
Blue and the Gray and Their Sons,,
being held F'iday.
The Manassass National Anthem,
adopted by the committee, was writ

Elm City, N. C. This is the chorus: |
"America, all hail to thee;
Thanks be to God who made us free, i
North South, East, West, hand clasp

United we, thy children, stand."
Thin lines of veterans of the blue
and gray, with halting steps, slowly
advanced toward each other and
meeting, clasped hands in fraternal
greeting at noon on the historic ba
tlefield, where fifty years ago they
were encaged in the battle of Bull

Four years ago William R. O'Neal,
a young business man of Bainbridge,
Ga., exchanged a lower berth for an
upper one with a feeble old gentle
man who was journeying to Florida
for his health.
The Atlanta Constitution says on
last Wednesday O'Neal learned that
the chance friend had left him a for
tune of $20,000, which will be turn
ed over to him as soon as he complies
j with certain legal formalities.
"Aw, come on, come on; I know
j you are lying," said O'Neal good nat
uredely to the man who informed

"Well, I congratulate you anyway,
whether you believe it or not, and
you can find out for yourself that
the man's son is here looking for
you," was the reply.
And O'Neal did find out that the
statement is correct. J. T. Young,
Jr., of Oakland, Cal., reached Atlanta
Wednesday on a search for O'Neal.
Mr. Young, Sr., having left him a
substantial fortune in his will. Mr.
Young did not know his address and
enlisted the local press in the search.
Nr. O'Neal is 26 years old. He
reached Atlanta Wednesday after liv

born in Bainbridge, and is the son
of Mrs. Chloe O'Neal, a widow of that

your fonlune?" Mr. O'Neal was ask
ed by one who had visions of a tur

"Do. Well, I hardly know yet defi
nitely, but I will invest it and prob
ably go to work for myself. That's
lot better that working, for someone
else," answered the level-headed
young chap. *
Faked Whole Story.
The Atlanta Journal says Thurs
day a voice, a nice, trustworthy
[ voice, that carried well over the
telephone and inspired confidence,
announced that it's owner was J. T.
Young, Jr., and that J. T. Young,
Sr., recently deceased rt Oakland,
Cal., had left $20,00 to W. R.
O'Neal, of Georgia. The voice ask
ed the Atlanta papers to kindly as
sist in the search for W. R. O'Neal,
The papers kindly did. O'Neal was
straightway found?In Atlanta. He
expressed his joy and surprise. It
is- now darkly hinted that these joy
and these surprise were as mytholog
ical as the sick old gentleman in
As soon as W. R. O'Neal was
found he was arrested for jumping
a board bill in LaGrange, also for
passing three worthless checks. He
is now in jail in LaGrange.
At the same time came a telegram,
in response to inquiries, from Oak
land, Cal., that no J. T. Young, eith
er senior, or junior, either dead or
?alive, was known In those parts.
The Youngs who did live in Oak
land, who had other initials, denied
all knowledge of W. R. O'Neal and
of the sick old ger.l'.t-man in Florida.
Whose the voice was is a mys
tery, and there is still a bare possi
bility that there is some mistake,
and that O'Neal has really become
an heir. Until the truth Is certified,
it may be well for hopeful travelers
to continue the pretty custom of re
linquishing their lower berths to
sick old gentlemen in Florida.

est hour Saturday night in New

dead, seized $5,000 worth of dia
mond rings and :got away in a taxi
cab, pursued by scores of persons
who had witnessed the murder and
A woman, who the police believe
was a confederate, entered the store
of Jacob Jacoby a few minutes prior
to the shooting and asked Mr. Jac
oby to test her eyes for glasses.
While she engaged him the window
glass was smashed and Adolph Stern,
a clerk, rushed to the street. An
under-sized man with a revolver
blocked him at the door.
Stern tried to brush past him to
get at a man who had poked his
hand through the broken window
and grasped a tray of diamond rings.
The under-sized man shot twice and
Stern fell. "My God, I'm shot," he
cried. A moment later he was dead.
Passers saw the man at the win
dow withdraw the tray of rings, tuck
it under his coat and dart across
the street. He disappeared through
the open door of a red touring car.
The engine coughed and the machine
was gone with half a hundred men
pursuing. These the oar soon out
distanced, (but not until the first
three numbers had been caugjht.
They were 537 and constitute the
chief clue left for the police.

the opposite direction, unseen by any

a few minutes, and armed with de

that as the elevator came up the

Mrs. Robertson wished to go to a

of the rar rose and before the door

that the door did not catch as the

In the first statement he has made

that his long, hard campaign in be

proved unavailing If the Democrats

aid the President said vci )rocity
would have been '"impossible."
? "The Democrats did not 'play pol

those words are used." said tho Pres
ident, "but they followed th-J dictates
of a higher policy."- For Secretary
Knox and his associates in the state
department who conducted the nego

ident said more than a word of
praise. These Republicans," he
said, "who fought for reciprocity and
some of whose votes were necessary
to the passage of the bill may prop

work well done.
