Rifts appeared yesterday in tlio
clouds which have overhung this city,
Portsmouth and Berkley since Sunday
night, and the people were gratlilcd
by a glimpse of the silver linings. About
!) a. m. the Virginian-Pilot received
a 'phone message from the Newport
News quarantine office that no deaths
or new cases of yellow fever had oc?
curred at the Soldiers' Home since the
last report, and that nil.f the pa?
tients in the hospital had been trans?
ferred to the convalescent ward. Late
yesterday afternoon 1 >r. Wasdln, the
Marine Hospital Surgeon, wired this
paper as follows from Port Monroe:
"Situation at Phoebus and Soldiers'
Homo reassuring. Nothing in Hampton
"Surgeon M. Ii. C."
GIVEN to THE PEOPLE.
These messages were given to the
people promptly, and confirmed the
good news publish) d In the Virginian
Pilot yesterday morning, with the re?
sult that the excitement which had pre?
vailed since Sunday night, when intelli?
gence reached here (>r the presence of
yellow fever among the inmates of the
Soldiers' Home at. Hampton, was al
inost, if not quite, completely abated.
Many people who left tho city in haste,
and Illy prepared, are anxious to re?
turn. They recognize now tho fact that
thoy became needlessly alarmed, and
that from the tlrst there lias been very
lit;ie danger that yellow fever would
reach this port, and if any ever exist?
ed, it. has disappeared.
THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES.
Acting- upon the principle that fore?
warned Is forearmed, the authorities
lure will continue the excellent pre?
cautionary work inaugurated until the
last vestige of fever disappears from
the Home and Phoebus, rind Surgeon
General Wyman, of the Marine Hospi?
tal Service, gives both places a clean
bill Of health.
NO DANGER ON THIS SIDE.
The Washington correspondent of the
New York Herald yesterday wired a
Seaboard Air Line official here as fol?
Washington, D. C, Aug. a. iso<).
Dr. Wyman thinks he has the situa?
tion well In hand. Lapse of another
day without any Bprcnd Is most en?
couraging. Every day lessens the lia?
bility of the disease getting outside of
present territory. Report from Norfolk
nnd Portsmouth show no persons there
who were exposed to the disease. It Is
not believed Mint there Is any danger at
either t.lace. WILLIAMS.
WHAT DR. WYMAN SAYS.
Surgeon General Walter Wyman, of
the Marine Hospital Service, Is in full
accord with the precautions being ta?
ken by the Norfolk quarantine author?
ities, as will be shown from the follow?
ing statement by him:
"I deem tliis measure quite as Im?
portant just now as cleaning of the
cities to which Infec tion might extend,
it Is a proper precaution to take, but it
need not cause unnecessary alarm.?
Visitors from the localities mentioned
should be kept under medical observa?
tion for from eight to ten days. De?
velopment of fever of any sort during
that period should be sufficient cause
for Isolating the ease and no! if vine the
"Fortunately the area, of Infection at
Hampton and Phoebus Is believed to be
a very limited one. Nevertheless some
person from that region may have been
exposed, and in from three to ten days
might give evidence of fever. Now .(
such a person should be promptly iso?
lated, there would be no excuse for the
disease spreading, it Is the duty <>f all
citizens to take cognizance of these
facts and to act accordingly.
"1'oople who in the past month have
been visitors at Hampton, simply pass?
ing through tho grounds, would not ne?
cessarily have been exposed to Infec?
tion. Bui people who have been living
there it greater or less time are the ones
who should be watched, just as is now
being done by the local health Officers
here in Washington."
DR. SMITH IN CHARGE HERE.
Dr. A. c. Smith. Passed Asslstnnt

rived in the city yesterday from Ro?

NORFOLK WILL SEND PRO?
Norfolk's merchants having been fur?

Home at Hampton, a conference was
held yesterday between Mayor John?
ston, the health authorities, Mr. M. 11.
Crowcll, Of tho Old Dominion Steam?
ship Company, and several merchants,
to arrange for the transfer of provisions
from this city to the Home, Phoebus,
Hampton ami old Point. The transfer

minion line. An open uninhabited

Island and Lambert's Point, and tho

folk on the steamer Luray. From there
they will bo taken to the points named

I NORFOLK'S STRICT QUARANTINE.
As an Instance of Norfolk's strict
Quarantine, the following from yester
day's Riehmond Dispatch Is worth
"Norfolk's quarantine seems to be as
strict as it is possibles to muke it.
"Yesterday morning Miss Fitchett. a
young lady of Norfolk, who had come
to this city from Old Point, or Ruck
roe Bench, hoping to evade the quar?
antine which Norfolk has established
against Ohl Point, boat (led the Norfolk
and Western train for home.
"All went well until Tucker's was
readied .about nine miles west of Ports?
mouth. At that point quarantine Inspec?
tors entered the train. Miss Kitchett
was in fear and trembling. But she
could not tell a story when the inspec?
tor asked her where she came from.
She had to tell him that he had been
staying at Old Point, and that she had
been in Richmond not two days.
"She had to get off the train. So did
about two dozen more persons?male
and female?who were trying to get in?
to Norfolk from the infected district by
way of Richmond."
ASYLUM OFFERED REFUGEES.
Mayor Wirt Dunlap. of Blacksburg,
yesterday sent Mayor Johnston the fol?
"Blacksburg would be glad to en?
tertain some of your refugees."
The Mayor replied by wire us follows:
"Please accept thanks oT the people
of Norfolk for your kind offer. Fever
has been confined to the Soldiers' Home
and there is no fear of the disease
reaching this city."
TRUE TO HIS HOME. i
police Commissioner A. P. Thorn, who
Is spending a vacation up North, ar?
rived In New York yesterday and call?
ed up Mayor Johnston over the long
distance telephone and informed him
tlii't he was ready to return immediate?
ly to tho city if the occasion required
it. Tho Mayor replied that there wns no
necessity for his return at this time.
AT CRANKY ISLAND.
There are now about twenty persons
being hold at the Norfolk and Ports?
mouth detention station on Crnney Is?
land. One of tho buildings there lias
boon arranged comfortably, and it Is
more of a pleasure than otherwise to
spend a few days on the pretty green Is?
WILL FUMIGATE MAILS.
The PostoRlce Department has do'
eidod upon the fumigation of all United
States mall hereafter to leave the quur- j
antine section. Colonel J. R. Waddy.
Norfolk's postmaster, yestcrdnv after?
noon received from Hon. C. W. Vlck
ery, superintendent of the third divis?
ion of tho railway malt service, a tel?
egram advising him of this fact. The
ollires affected are at Phoebus. New?
port News, Hampton and Fortress Mon?
There has been some comment on the
fact that 110 orders had been given for
the fumigation of mails from Phoebus,
since tho Soldiers' Home mail goes
through thai otlleo. and tho people
generally will approve of this precau?
tion on the part of the Government.
W11 AT DR. STERNBERG SAIO.
In reply to Pr. NewblU's telegram
printed in yesterday's Virginian-Pilot,
Surgeon General Steinberg, of the
nriny, yesterday wired the following:
C. F. Ncwbitl, President of the Board
of Health. Norfolk:
I made no prediction for publication,
hut remarked in conversation tlr.it the
disease was very lik?dy to spread
among the resident population in the
Immediate vicinity "f the Home, but
that I did not believe it was likely to
extend to Norfolk, Newport News or
HEALTH OFFICER REMOVED.
Dr. Rugby, health officer at Newport
News, has been suspended by the Coun?
cil of Hint city. It was charged against
Dr. Bagby that he had been selling
passes through the Newport News
quarantine line for 25 find l?0 cents. Dr.
P.agby admitted ( barging for the pass?
es, his contention being Hist he had a
right to compensation for bis time. The
Council acquitted him of blame, hut ad?
vised his retirement to restore tho con?
fidence of the people. Dr. Hobson was
appointed in his stead.
EFFECTIVE OCEAN VIEW PATROL
