House to House Canvass in Manila.
' alov.-Gen. Smith wired from Manila:
"'For the twenty-four hour- beginning
at S a. m., Sept. 1!). forty-three ca-e-cholera;
Sept. 20. fifty-nine ca-es. The
increase believed due to putting on two
hundred in-pectors who di-coered hid
den ea-e-. llnguaio (a local name for a
storm) and cold rain- al-o -erved to
increase the number of ea-e-. Have
whole police force of Manila now on
house to house canva--. To-morrow two
hundred constabulary will W put
work if nece ity require-. Increased
inspection to-day and (old rains may
result in larger numltor of ea-e-. At
C p. m., to-day we hail thiity-five ea-es."
During the pa-t mouth the cholera
has appeared in various province-. Santa
Barbara, Jaro, port of Iloilo, A-carraga.
Rarotae and Diunangas.
The question of allowing the battle
ship fleet to touch at Manila wa- sup
posed to be settled ill the affirmative,
but the itinerary may yet be changed.
The fleet's cour-e lies through the Straits
of Lombok and Macas-ar. the -ea- of
Celebes and Sulu, near enough land to
be in constant communication with
Washington. It will not be absolutely
necessary to change the orders, if that
should Iks determined upon, until just
before the fleet is due at Manila.
The naval authorities are in this
quandary: Should any man on the
ships be taken with cholera, the depart
ment would lie severely critici-ed for
permitting the fleet to run unneces
sary risk; if the fleet should be ordered
not to touch at Manila the authorities
here would lie criticised in the Philip
pines and the American prestage would
be seriously impaired. The Spaniards
in the archipelago have been telling the
Tagalogs that Americans lack bravery
and to order the fleet not to stop at
Manila would lie viewed, it is feared, as
confirmation of the charge.

never lost a dollar by him. It was
known, of eouise. that he was the real
power behind the throne in the rail
10.ul. He was a man of remarkable
ability; especially as to memory. He
could recall the smallest details in thou
sands of transactions, and 'when he
made an assertion you tould depend
that he would produce the proof and
never be mistaken as to the smallest
item. So far as I knew him he always
was reasonable and fair. I know noth
ing of his transactions with other per
sons. I was the contractor and my
claim could not lie disputed, although it
took time to get a settlement."
The ramifications of Haskell's .opera
tions in New York, which include not
only the flotation of the bonds of the

Haskell Offered to Compromise.
Henry R. Morehead brought suit
against Oeorge W. Striker, as executor
of the estate of Henry R. Ives, to wind
up his affairs. Mills W. Bar.se was ap
pointed receiver, and made a contract
with Charles II. Roser, an engineer in
the employ of Haskell, for the sale of
the entire stock issue of the Ohio South
ern, Haskell acteil as Ro-er's guarantor.
The amount involved was $N:$,131.81.
Haskell offered to settle for $22,000 if
the Court would release him from the
full claim, and on Nov. 14, 1004, Judge
Laeombe issued an order authorizing the
acceptance of the compromise. Has
kell's wife paid the money and the full
amount of 103.131 was placed to the
j credit of the receiver. Although Has
kell did not make himself conspicuous
in Wall street to the general investing
public, he was recognized as a shrewd
manipulator by Inside operators. John
K. Rome, former president of the
Colonial Trust Company, said yesterday
that Haskell was a wizard in finance.

and eighteen injured.
The drill to-day had leen proceeding
for a considerable time, when, without
warning, the whole turret seemed to

thrown in all directions, and several
of them were hurled into the sea

Life Versus Trade.

trade being injured through the de
mands of union lalwr, as if trade was
of greater importance than health, hap
piness and prosperity of the wealth

coal trade to have the miner work eight
or nine hours a day for a living wage?
