It is gratifying te otaerve that such
Democratic papers as The Xew i'f-ri
World, whose editor is en the ground
and fully knows the situation, are in
accord with President Harrison's pro
clamation in regard te quarantine regu
lations, and denounce the position as
sumed by New Yerk's Democratic Health
Oillcer Jenkins. It is only papers at
long range, Ignorant of the facts such
as The Kentucky Journal, for instance
that they make a little political capital
at the expense of human lives.
ON page 393 of the report of the
State Inspector of Mines for the Bloom Bleom Bloem
ington district of Illinois we find the
following paragraph under the head of
"Strikes": "There have been only two
strikes in this district during the last
year. The first was by the miners em
ployed by the McLean County Ceal Com
pany at Bloomington. The company
having discharged a few of their em em
peoyes for taking n leading part in
forming a union, the miners as a body
came out en strike te have theso who
had thus discharged reinstated."
Commissioner Peck of New Yerk
alarmed the Democratic managers of
the Empire tate and of the entire
country with his report of manufacture-?;
but there is mere te fellow. Superin
tendent Perter of the Census Office has
secured sworn statements from one
hundred of the leading citizens lu the
country concerning the condition of
manufactures since the passage and
nppreval of the McKInley bill. The
result will nstenish the Democrats who
are crying for Free-trade and abusing
the McKInley bill, its author and the
Republican party. The replies of the
hundred cities, all of them sworn
statements, will be printed as an
official bulletin inside of fifteen days,
and the report of Commissioner Peck of
New Yerk will be verified officially by
the experiences of business centers out
side of the Empire State. This bulletin
will be non-partisan. The statements
nre made by city corporations concerning
the development of their manufacturing
interests during the past two years.
These statements cannot be questioned.
They nre officially acquired, and will be
officially given te the country. The fact
that they sustain the McKInley bill nnd
give ample evidence of its wisdom and
of benefits secured te our country by
that legislation cannot be termed the
work of partisanship. The Democratic
party will be seriously hurt by these
facta from various cities, but the
Democratic party will have te quarrel
with facts, nnd facts cannot be called

IlAJiuuna, Sept. 7. The cholera Is
making steady und rapid progress In
this city, nnd the transparent denials
of the authorities new only deceive
theso who wish te be deceived. The
appalling increase in the number el
fresh cases and deaths lnst Saturday
left the people almost without hope.
The abatement of the dlsease Sunday
was tee slight te encourage them.
Tuesday another heavy increase of
the sick list and the death list has con
summated their helplessness and de
spair. The number of fresh cases Mon
day waa 009, or 80 mero than Sunday;
the number of deaths 350, or 73 mero;
the number of interments 850, or 75
mere. The newspapers nre virtually
dumb as te this increase, and most of
the sanitary officials open their meutlis
only te falsify the facts.
Hut few men connected with the city
government can be induced te acknowl
edge the trutli, and they speak only en
the condition that what they say should
net be published In the city. Their
fears of creating a penic here, however,
are apparently supcrilueus, as the real
state of affalra is revealed by the in
creasing efforts of the authorities te
meet the emergency.
The number of inspectors and physi
cians employed by the city has been
doubled, and one can net walk the
streets without meeting half a dozen
agents of the health department. The
new dead wagons, which were im
pressed into the service Monday, ap
peared in the street, Tuesday. The in
crease in the number of interments also
was tee great te pass unnoticed, even
among people who for ten days have
seen or heard the dead carried by every
hour in the twenty-four. But ten
6trangers have registered at the
principal hotels in the last two days.
Trade in everything except feed, drink
and medicine is dead.
The total losses of merchants nnd
shop-keepers since the beginning of the
plague are estimated at 200,000,000
marks. Debtors through less of busi
ness have been rendered unable te
meet their obligations, although cred
itors by the same circumstances have
been compelled te press them for pay
ment Fears of u financial crash have become
general within the last few days. In
view of this perilous state of affairs the
Vanks te-day announced that they
would give thirty days' mere time en
payments d.u.e them. This announce-,
lh5St lias relieved the strain somewhat,
although, should the epidemic continue
te sprend, few debtors will be in better
condition te pay in October. Services el
prayer are held daily by the clergy.
They are well attended. Just before
and after the services there is a sem
blance of life in the streets. At ether
neurs only servants going te market or
officials of the health department arc
Late reports show that the disease is
gaining ground in the city and the mor
tality is disproportionately heavy
among female patients. Many deaths
are occurring in asylums and prisons.
Up te Monday evening the interments
since August -0 have numbered 5,233.
The inability of the city te care proper
ly for the patients in the overcrowded
hospitals has led te the organisatien el
relief committees, which are new at
work in almost every' hospital ward in
Many of the committees will devote
themselves exclusively te caring for the
peer, who are dying by dozens in the
tenement houses, without having even
seen physician or nurses. They also
will try te aid the Interment service in
getting the dead bodies under ground

idea of reciprocity, concluding as fol fel fol

simple. It seeurcs a valuable trade in

Mr. Blaine makes the third issue that
