Norfolk, \'a.. May 25, 18W>.)
Dr. F. S. Hope. Quarantine Officer of!
Fort of Norfolk, Vit.:
Dear Sir-The Board of Health has
learned through the daily pap rs that
the Heina. Mcrcctlcs will probably be
ordered t?> the Gospoi't Navy-yard to
be remodeled. Cognizant of Ho- fact
that the Rclna Mercedes has been a
Spanish transport, much used in the
tropics, the board feels that It is Its
duty to emphatically protest against
this work being done before frost.
. .1. .1. M'CORMICIC.
Secretary Board of Health, Norfolk.
DR. NK.WBILL PRESENTS THEM.
This protest was brought to Dr. F. S.
Hope yesterday afternoon by Dr. New
bill, president of the Hoard <>f Health;
J. J. McCormlck, Beer ttary, und Mr. It.
H. Jones, president of tin- Business
Men's Assoi lulion of Norfolk, who
banded the resolution t-i Dr. Hup-', who
paid: "This is no surprise to me, gen?
tlemen, as I knew of your action last
Mr. McCormlck rcpll d: "No one has
Feen this resolution; then who could
have told you'.'"
The gentlemen then left. After their
departure Dr. Hope said that the notion
of the Board of Health of Norfolk was
not In accordance with the opinions ot
Surgeon General Wyman or Dr. PettIs,
both of whom bad given her a cl nn
bill of health, to which bo bad add) d
bis ofllelul permission for her to ec-mo
to this yard, and, notwithstanding the
emphatic protest of the Board of Health
of Norfolk, he will on Saturday, bring
Hie shin up to tie- yard.
Hut if it should be the concensus of
opinion of the conference for In vita*
tlons had been Issued to attend n meet?
ing to be held In Norfolk to-day ai 12 J
o'clock?that the conjectures of the
Hoard of Health N rtolk is right,
then he would take her t?> the yard and
bold her In quarantine until bucIi time
as the government should bcc tit to re?
move her. The following gentlemen

DR. HOPE TALKS PLAIN.
Doctor Hope expressed great aston?
ishment that the Board of Health ?
Norfolk, which, by its action, puts i:
Belf on record as being opposed t-> tlie
Heina Mercedes coining to this navy
yard for repairs, should wait until the
very last moment to enter Its prol
again*! bringing the vessel Into the in?
ner harbor. And. what astonish) s me
. ?etill more, fan! Dr. Hope, is the fact
of the action cf the board before con?
ferring with the quarantine authori?
"Wouldn't It hurt thin yard, Doctor?"
jwro3 the query put.
"Most assuredly it would. It would
irive It such a black eye Unit it would
require a grenl !??::_::, iif time to ever
regain the position i: now holds. Hut,
let me say this: it Is :i i| ri |i |y .? ?,??.?
tlon of bringing this ship hi re for re?
pairs; the saL':y of the people is of
the most vital Importance, nnd to tin;
end I look first. 1 have given tin- qu -
tion of br-bging the Rclna Mercedes :-?
this yard mature thought ami di : bi r
?ition, and no thoroughly convinced nm
1 that thtrc Is absolutely no dangi r to
our people In bringing tin- ship up here
th^t I have notified Admiral Farquhar,
the commandant of this naval . lath
that I would not stand in the way of
the vessel coming to this yard, as there
.?waa not the least dunger to i>? ap?
prehended by reason of her presence in
"3Phe fact that the Mercedes has been
under water for eight months, has
! never boon infected, has been only re?
cently raised and made absolutely clean
by the Marino Hospital authorities;
that she ban been eight days in transit
I and Ovo days in lower quarantine,
where she has been thoroughly disin?
fected, under the direction of marine
hospital experts, whom I met nt Old
Point Is, I should think, sulllolent to
convince the Norfolk authorities of the
absence of danger.
THUS 1WUBLY ASSURED.
"We have the assurance <>f Drs. Wy
man nnd Pollns, of the Marine Hospital
Service," continued Dr. Hope, "that
there is absolutely no ehanee of con?
tagion Crom the .Mercedes, and acting
upon those assurances, 1 have gone on
in my olilclal capacity its quarantine of
flcer of the port and cleared the way
for the Heina. Mercedes to come to this
"1 sent one vessel away from here be?
cause I thought it wouid be positively
dangerous to have her torn to pieces
at this yard. That vessel was the Nic
thoroy. Hut there Is as much difference
between the condition of the two ships
ns there is between night and day. One
is absolutely clean to start with, while'
the oilier had been In a fever infected
port for four years, without any at
tcntion being paid to bor sanitary con?
dition, not even her bill's being clean?
ed, and the nith which bad accumulat?
ed about her in n section of the world
which breeds these dangerous germs
of disease being; so abundant. I did
not care to .assume the risk which I
thought would follow the cleaning out
6t the ship at this port, hence I used
my best Judgment and acted ns "l
thought best for the interests or all
"Now I believe the Mercedes is free
of nil germ8 nu*l that there is not the
lenst danger in her. nnd I want to say
right hero, and tbnt very plainly, that
if that ship ls-oent nwny from this
yard T want the responsibility placed
just where it belongs."
T>r. Hope said further tlir*t be fully
appreciated the fact that with our peo?
ple the reenlleetion of IS."", was yet a
most vivid experience with them. Rut
while tbnt memorable visitation was a
sad reality, yet there was no possibility
e.r a ro< urrence of It by reason of such
n clean vessel as be believed 'be Mor
cedoQ to be coining to this yard. Some
people, said ho. nro*?pcctre chasers,
Tolng- rfter Ihe shadows of what has
been or mlcbt be under conditions dif?
ferent from ibo=e now eorifrontlng us.
And so far as be was concerned occupy?
ing 'he nfllclnl position be does, he
would rather look ibe situation straight
In the face, preferring" to lake hold of
the tnnrrible rather than grasp nt the
shndow lv fng followed by spectre hunt?
DH. HOPE'S OPINION SUSTAINED.
The following In reference to the ac?
tion of the Navy Department relative
to this matter, sent to the Baltimore
Sun from Washington, corroborates Dr.
F. S. Hope's opinion:
"The Navy Department is making
ready to receive the former Suanish
cruiser Heina Mercedes at the Nor?
folk navy yard. If it can succeed in
allaying the apprehensions of the
people of Norfolk as to the safety of
the movement. There hns been some
telegraphic correspondence between the
Navy Department and Admiral Far
qtihar, commanding at the Norfolk
navy yard, respecting the admission of
the ship to the navy yard.
"Surgeon General Van Iteypan has
given the matter his personal attention.
He says that the Mercedes has been
under water since early last July:
that there never was fever on the ves- i
sei. and finally, that there in no fever
at Santiago, whence it came. He has
accordingly recommended to Assistant (
Secretary Allen, who is directly in
charge of the repairs of ships, that the j
origin il plan be carried out and the
Mercedes be brought to the Portsmouth
"Surgeon General YVyman, of the Ma?
rine Hospital Service, was llrst con?
sulted by Surgeon General Van Roy
pen, Inasmuch na be Is in charge of the
national quarantine service at Nor?
folk. He declared there would be no
danger in adopting this cottse, particu?
larly ns he would undertake to have
the Mercedes thoroughly disinfected
"The Navy Department has not yet ?
received the application of Ihe New1
York Hoard of Aldermen to have the
ship sent to New York, but unless the
Norfolk authorities Interfere, the Mer?
cedes will not be sent North before it
Is repaired. A board or inspection will
be appointed to survey the ship and es?
timate the cost of putting It in thor?
j WHAT CAPTAIN M'CAIiTjA SAYS.
I The question of having the Rclnn
Mercedes moored along a pier at this
navy yard, nnd the protest thereto, j
i seemed to have reached the navy yard
yesterday; at any rate something
caused Captain McCalla to say in a
manner most emphatic yesterday that
he had received orders from the Navy
Department to make wharf room for
her here, and that under no consldcra
j tlon would she be sent a way from thin

Tcsti rdny afternoon Win. Bailey, a
n itod thief, commonly called the
"Devil," met a given negro man who
bad b i'ii cooking In the navy-yard
j Just long enough to receive bis first
' pay. Some words passed between the
"Devil" and the Btrhnge darkey, who
bad a ten dollar note In his hand look?
ing- at it. Bailey saw an opp. rtunlty
to gel in some of bis crooked work,
and while the old man. unsuspecting
