Washington, Aug. SI. The government
officials are very much exercised over the
reports received yesterday from the cholera
Infected iitricts of Karope. They regard
as very serious the fact that the dreadful
disease ha secured a foothold in England.
There wes a long and important conference
held at the treasuryepartment yesterday
afternoon when the subject of establishing
national quarantine was again taken up.
The proposition was seriously diwussed of
absolu ely excluding all vessels from chol
era infected ports, but the matter was
finally allowed to go over for a day.
Ooed to Extreme Measures.
The crctdual but certain spread of the
cholera in K:irope lias alarmed the officials
here more than anything else, but they
still insi-t that the country was never in
better condition thr.nnowto combat the
disease. The tide of travel from Europe
has also set in with great strength aud is
evidently made tip largely of Americans
who uie anxious to get home before abso
lute quarantine is established. Assistant
Secretary iiatihling said that he was op
posed to taking any -uch extreme action
until the l:ist moment, because it would
work hardship on so many.
States Control Qnarnntine.
The coveniur.3 of the states and ths
municipal authorities may be able to

such a powt-r. The states cannot, perhaps,
directly prohibit immigration from the in
fected ports, bnt may produce quarantine
regulations riid enough to put a stop to
the usual influx of immigrants. Good
lawyers here say that there is no doubt

the federal constitution. The question of

A state department official in discussing
the cholera question yesterday remarked
that it seemed almost impossible to pre
vent the disease from making an entry into
thU country. The strictest quarantine
regulations may be adopted and national

hospital service, and in spite of the com

A Frightful Death Itoli and Lint of New
HAMtriW, Aug. 31. The sultriness of
the attnophere since early Monday even
ing has caused the cholera to spread with
increased rapidity, and Los of the near
abatement of the diseitse have received a
shock. Last night MO new cases and 819
deaths were reported for the day. The
number of interments Monday was 290,
almost three times the average in health
ful times. Many of the burials now take
place at night, as then there is not only
less danger of infection, but also fewer
- persons abroad to be panic stricken by the
appauling frequency of the funerals.
Most bodies are unaccompanied by friends
or relatives. Persons of ths poorer class
dying in hospitals are buried without any
attempt at ceremony, and without having
been even seen by friends and family.
The Panic Has Commenced.
The expected panic seems to hare come.
The exoilus of families of property is
continuous and increasing. The railway
stations are full night and day and there
is difficulty in finding porters enough to
transport the baggage. Business is dead.
Most ot the shops not dealing in the daily
necessities are closed. Those that remain
open do hardly a tenth of their usual
trade. The cafes are deserted, and the
restaurants are without patrons, except at
mealtimes. The hotels yesterday received
bat twenty-nine persons and most of .them
are virtually empty. The loss of trade in
the last three days is estimated to be in
the millions. The celebration of Sedan
Day, anniversary of the surrender of Napo
leon III, has been forbidden.

The coarse of the disease is watched with
the most minute care by the authorities
and by the official physicians, who have
been engaged by the score and placed on
duty at the police stations, the railway
stations, and public institutions. All per
sons arriving from cities suspected of in
fection, are carefully examined aud their
baggage is fumigated. So far the progress
of the plague has been too small to affect
very noticeably the city's daily life.

Only before the bill boards, where the
official reports are posted, and on the
street cornels, where sanitary instructions
have been placarded, is any variation of
the regular routine to be observed. At
these places small groups were gathered

Reports from forty towns in north Ger

show that in each c ses of cholera have

ever, has it become epidemic, and in ail

the country has seen the worst of the

London, Aug. 31. James Lowther.
fpeaking at Kamsgate yesterday, urged
that the public welfare demanded that the
government, with or without warrant of
law, should prohibit immigration while
the danger from cholera menaced Great
Britain. He would pledge the support of
the Conservatives, should it be necessary,
to indemnify the government for any ac
tion it might take in defense of the public
health against the cholera scourge.

drowning. The royal party were some dis

assistance. The storm was still raging,
but the royal yacht was headed direct for

new regions to cultivation and the lower

Chicago. Aug. 31. 'Mrs. John A. Losran
ha undertaken to raise $ 1,000,000 among
the women of America for the American
university, recently founded by the Meth
odist Episcopal church at Washington.
The announcement is made in the North
western Christian Advocate, the official
organ of the Methodist Episcopal church
in the nortbwe-t, in its issue which ap
pears today. The university expects to
secure a fund of 510,000,000 for buildings

has been donated in a site and $750,0M)
pledged iu cash as a starter. Mrs. Logan's
plan of raising a $1,000,000 fund is to or
ganize the women of the nation into state,
congressional, district, and local leagues,
these leagues to co-operate with her in
raising the money to aid in this great en
terprise. The Whole Sum for Women Students.
The million-dollar fund will be devoted
to the bent-fit of women students. Mrs.
Logan's plan being to create 100 $10,000

women to take the post-graduate course in
the great national institute to be erected
at the capital. It is said Mrs. Logan, who
is now at her home in Washington, will
shortly visit Chicago to inaugurate the
movement in the western states, where
the lady is so popular with all classes of
people and all denominations of Chris
tians. Conceiveti by Itishop Hurst.
Dr. Arthur Edwards, editor of The Ad
vocate, believes the American university
will within a few years become one of the
greatest institutions of learning in Amer
ica and rival any iu the civilized world.
About two years ago Bishop J. F. Hurst,
of Washington, D. G, conceived the idea
of founding at the capital of the nation a
great post-graduate university for ex
tended study. He' foresaw that nowhere
in the United States were such facilities
for research and reference to be had as at
Washington, with its congressional library
aud its vast treasures of a scientilic nature
embraced in the National museum, Smith
sonian institute, and other public archives.
An Kndowmeut of S10.OO0.OOO.
The materal at hand and ready for the

could not be brought together elsewhere
for less than $30,000,000. To conceive the
plan was to act. Bishop Hurst determin
ed to found a National American univers
ity with an endowment fund of 10,000,000.
The citizens of Washington hailed his an
nouncement with delight, and a tract of
land embracing 20J acres was donated as a
site and the sum of 750.000 pledged in
cash. The site lies about five miles north
of the Capitol building and is reached by
an electric railway.
