London, Aug. A sailor died of
cholera ot the steamship Cierorm at Iid-
dlesltorouyli yesterday. The steamship
lins been qtmrnntined, as other cases are
said to he lt veloplng aboard her.
Paws, Aug. 29. Two deaths from
cholera are reported from Sainte Lonis
hospital. A woman named Say, who lived
alone, was stricken last night with ft dis
ease which she thought was Asiatic
cholera. Yesterday she tried to walk to
her soli's house to get proper care. She
fell in the street and died while b'.-inx con
veyed to the hospital. It is said that if
the cholera continues to spread in Havre
aud other French cities through which
there is much travel to the United States,
the steamships of the French line will
cease running to Havre, anil will touch
instead at some English port, probaby

Hamiui:g, Aug. 20. The number of
'fresh cases of cholera on Saturday was
4C9. the number of deaths JIM. Incom
plete returns for yesterday show lint there
are at fewest MX) fresh cases. The num
ber of deaths has not yet been ascertained,
The mortality from cholera has raised the
number of funeral- daily from an average
of eighty-five to one of 320. The city is
not yet panic stricken, but the effect of
the plague is apparent everywhere. The
streets yesterday were deserted for the
first time since the disease became preva
lent. The usual Sunday excursions were
abandoned. No excursion trains were
run, and the Bteamers which usually take
out parties lay idle at the docks. Theatres,
circuses and music halls were empty.
Tliev Hurry the Funerals.
The funeral which take pi ice constant
ly are conduced without the usuals osten
tation. Not more than two or three car
riages follow a hearse and in many cases
the body i taken to the grave without a
friend or relative to accompany it. The
services are limited to a prayer or at most
to a prayer and hymn. This simplicity of
ceremony is the result of the repeated
vrarnings of the sanitary authorities and
physicians. The Hamburg senate has re
quested an extra credit ot 8,o',UXJ marks
for medical purposes. In Altona, jusn be
low here, there were forty-seven fresh
cases yesterday and nineteen deaths.
FROM LONDON AND BERLIN,
Dr. Thorne, of the London Sanitary Board,
Not Hopeful Sensible Kaiser.
London, Aug. 29. Dr. Thorne, chief of
the sanitary division of the local govern
ment board, says he has grave doubts
of the ability of the board to keep
the cholera out of London. He says
the great- source of danger Is in
the East End. It is impossible to
watch and locate indigent immigrants
who naturally gravitate toward the East
End on arrival in the country. They do
not know themselves where they are go
ing, aud their addresses cannot be regis
tered. They have no work in prospect
and no friends to receive them, and they
drift to the slums and are lost sight of.
They are of course subject to a medical
inspection at the port of arrival, but they
might pass this ami yet be infected with
cholera in the incubation stage, which
-would develop afterward.
Itadical Measures Talked of.
Ordinary travelers cau be Matched for
any desired lengt h of time after arrival, as
they have destinations in view and can
give their addresses. At the instance of
Dr. Thorne all the leading medical officials
under the government met Saturday to
discuss the situation. It was resolved
that more stringent measures than now
possible should be authorized. There is
a growing feeling that Gladstone should
convene the ministers and pass an order
on the ground of public expediency em
powering officials to absolutely exclude
immigrants at their discretion so long as
the danger from cholera exists.
"Horse Sense' of the Emperor.
Berlin, Aug. 29. At a conference of
the ministry of the interior Saturday it
was decided to publish daily the number
of cases of cholera reported throughout
Germany. The minister of the interior
took this action at the suggestion of the
emperor, who believes that the plague
can be fought more advantageously if the
people understand the exact nature of the
peril to which they are exposed. In Berlin
especially such a course is regarded as ad
visable, because a panic can be averted
by the publication of all the facts. The city
was never cleaner or healthier and with
proper preventative measures it probably
can be kept comparatively free from the

Health Board Men Advocate Stopping;
' mtnlg ration,
NEW YORK, Aug. 29. At a conference
yesterday between the mayor and mem
bers of the health board Mayor Grant
urged the greatest vigilance in regard to
the inspection of immigrants during the
prevalence of cholera in Europe. I'resi
dent Wilson, of the health biard, said he
was a strong believer in tiiat immigration
being stopped which plied between any
infected districts and the port of New
York while there was the slightest dan
ger, from cholera. He belie veil the great
est danger lay in cholera coming from
other ports where the quarantine system
was not as rigid at in New York.
ISelieves in Total Stoppage.
"Immigration could be stopped," he
Hid, "by makiug the quarantine regula
tions so severe that the companies would
be forced to stop. In auy case the com
panies would stop of their own accord, I
believe, it there was a general feeling ex
pressed in that direction. As to compel
ling the companies through their repre
sentatives here to cease sending immi
grants to this country, we could not do
that except by special act of congress,
and, iu fact, I do not know that congress
would have auy power to pass such an
A Strict Watch Xecessary.
Health Officer Jenkins said he would
continue the quarantine regulations as at
present enforced for at least a year and
perhaps for two years. "Even if cholera
does not come to this country soon," he
said, "it will be necessary to keep a strict
watch. If it keeps away for months there
may be a relaxation of vigilance in other
ports, both in this country and abroad,
which will render it all the more necessary
to be vigilant here. In any case, I don't
think we should consider ourselves safe
for at least two years."
A Snspicious Case Ue-elops.
Anton I'otzel, an Austrian who arrived
here from Hanrburg, Germany, two weeks
ago, was taken to Believue hospital yes
terday afteernoon suffering with an ail
ment some of the symptoms of which re
samble those of Asiatic cholera. The
fact that he has come from a cholera
infected city caused alarm. The hospital
physicians were unable to determine
whether he had genuine cholera or not
they thought he was suffering from a
severe attack of cholera morbus but to
be on the safe side they isolated I'otzel in
the tent on the river front which was used
for typhus patients. He will be kept
there until the nature of his affliction is

The Pomme de Terre river, so-called,
which the trestle which fell spanned, is,
as a matter of fact, no river at all for a
greater portion of the year, but only a
very small stream, but has been swollen
by recent rains until it is a torrent.
It is a singular piece of good fortune
for the passengers that the cars and de

they did, as otherwise many of the passen

CKAWKOliusviLLK, Ind., Aug. 29. David
Carlisle, a temperance reformer, was hunt
ting Friday, when he encountered a large
blacksnake which gave battle, and before
the reptile was killed it succeeded in sink
ing its fangs into his legs a number of
times. He drove furiouly to a small
village nearby, and swallowed all con
scientious scruples and a large quantity of
whisky. He shortly felt better and,
started home under the care of Ben Eiy, a
Tanglefoot Worse Than Snakes.
On the journey he liegan to feel the
effects of the whisky, grew quarrelsome,
and at length made such a vicious at
tempt upon the life of his protector that
Ely was constrained to quiet him, and
only succeeded by choking him into in
sensibility. Carlisle began bleeding at
the mouth and physicians have partiady
succeeded in stopping it. They pronounce
it an internal hemorrhage and consider
his condition very critical. Carlisle's
relatives are very indignant and threaten
prosecution, though it seems clearly a
case of self defense.

CRUEL AND GHASTLY LIE.
Story of Wapiti Lost of Millionaire Sib
Collingwood, ' Ont., Aug. 20. The
story that the yacht Wapiti had been
wrecked in Georgian bay was a cruel,
malicious and ghastly lie cruel because
Mr. Sibley who, with his family, was re
ported dead, has a mother living aged 81
years, and malicious because it was the
work of a discharged cook, George Sho
min, who took that way of getting re
venge for his discharge. A peculiarity of the
case was that the Wapiti was lying safe at
Collingwood in full view of the news
gatherers of that town at the very time the
report was flying over the country that
she was a wreck. The Sibley family is
safe and well.
