Net York, Sept. 13. The steamer
Cepbeus, which started yesterday room
ing for Fire Island with the cabin pas
engers of the Xormannia, had to face a
gale of wind. When she arrived at the
Island she fonnd it tn possession of men
from Islip, L. I., who refused to permit
Iier to land. She returned to auchorase
Inside Sandy Hook about 10 o'clock last
night. Her passengers had a tough time
of it, there being no sleeping accommoda
tions on board. The Isiip men defy the
governor and the state health officers, and
claim their "common rights." justify
their guarding Fire Island from intrusion
by people who may be infected with
cholera. They intimidated the pilot so
that he refused to bring in the Cephena,
and they threaten to burn the Surf hotel
unless the attempt to use it for a quaran
tine station is abandoned.
Twenty of the men have been sworn In
as special constables, and they have over
100 assistants. The men admit that they
are armed, and declare that they will not
give way to Xew York policemen or any
one else. President Wilson, of the New
York board of health, has placed reporters
and others on guard at the hotel, and tele
graphed for assistance. Forty French
cooks and waiters who were sent down
from the Hoffman House were stopped at
Babylon and stoned. When asked his
course now Dr. Jenkins said he should
again send the Cepheus with the Xorman
tua's cabin passengers to Fire Island.
spection on the pest ships in tlu lower bay
Dr. Jenkins expressed himself as beinij
greatly pleased at the comparative de
crease in the rsnniberof deaths and new
cases reported. The fact that no new cases
or death bat. ocenrred on any of th snips
exceDt the Scandia indicates, he Iwlieves.
that serious developments are not proba
ble. As soon as new cases appear on the
Scandia they are transferred to Swinburne
island, and reports from there he says are
most encouraging. Tlie dead bodies of
pest stricken passengers are being promptly
removed and at oac; cremated, so that, in
fection., he believes, is quite impossible.
Do They Want the Ksrthf
It has been definitely decided to transfer
the first cabin passengers on the Scandia,
of hich there are only twenty -eight, to
the New Hampshire, which is now in
lower quarantine. The cahiu paengers
on the Xiirmatinis, headed by Mr. A. M.
Palmer, who were Saturday transferred to
the Stouington, yesterday united in a cotn
j htiut to Dr. Jenkins that the ship waa
worn out, that the cooking ntensils were
in a bad condition and that she was not
adapted for the needs for which she was
intended. It was in consequence of this
complaint that the steamer Cepheus was
obtained for their immediate removal to
Fire inland. Dr. Jenkins has not yet de
cided what use, if any, h9 will make of
MAKING THE BARRIER SECURE.
Almost Perfect Arrangements to Keep
New York, Sept. 12. Matters as regards
quarantine are getting into efficient shape,
and yesterday it may be said that the bar
rier against the cholera had become nearly
as perfect as it is possible to make it. This
was the situation in brief on Saturday;
The Stonington was in commission. The
New Hampshire was ready for service.
Fire island had been purchased. The work
of preparing Sandy Hook for the reception
of passengers was being pushed with vigor.
Additional quarantine physicians had been
appointed, and the consulting staff of phy
sicians selected by the chamber of com
merce committee and accepted by Dr. Jen
kins. What is quite as important as any
thing was the assurance made certain
beyond all question that funds will not bs
lacking for every measure designed : to
make quarantine effective and the incon
venience of those quarantined as slight as
Fashed the Work on Sunday.
On Sunday the good work went on.
Some of the Normannia's cabin passengers
bad been pat on the Stonington, but Sun
day they were transferred to Fire island.
Then the placing of the Rugia's passen
gers on Hoffman island and the arrival of
the old frigate New Hampshire at the
lower bay for use of the cabin passengers
of such of the ships as may be determined,
were the progressive features in the work
of caring for the unfortunates. Owing to
the strong southerly wind prevailing out-
vide it was deemed unsafe to send the
Stonington to Fire island, as it was feared
she would prove unseaworthy. Accord
ingly Dr. Jenkins suggested the iron
steamboat Cepheus.and she was chartered
by Dock Commissioner Cram and at 11
o'clock she arrived at the upper station,
having on board the commissioner and
the chamber of commerce relief commit
tee, headed by Seth Low.
Mskln( the Welcome Transfer.
Accompanied bv Dr. Jenkins the Ce
phrits immediately proceeded to the hos
pital at Sandy Hook, where the cabin
passengers of the Norman nia, who had
been on the Stonington since Saturday
night, were taken on board. At 3:30 the
Cepheus started for Fire island in the face
of a strong sea. After inspecting the pro
gress of work at the refuge station at
Sandy Hook Dr. Jenkins turned his fare
homeward on the yacht Fra Diavola, and
at 5 o'clock as he climbed the stairs of the
bluff at the quarantine station he prom
ised news to the reporters in half an hour.
The doctor telegraphed the governor that
he had possession of Fire Island and be
lieved the measures taken would keep the
cholera from reaching New York. He
also announced that a committee from the
chamber of commerce had told him that
Camp Low at Sandy Hook would be of
fered as soon as ready for the reception of
Keller for Steerage Passenger.
It was with much joy the Rugia's
passengers received the order yesterday
to be transferred to Hoffman's island. It
was not pos.Ojl before on account of the
occupancy of the Normannia's steerage
passengers, but through the energy of Dr.
Walser, another building has been pre
pared so that they can be attended to and
at the same time ho kept from contact
with those of the Normannia. This is the
most important step that has yet "been
made in relieving he distress oa -the
two ships first arrived, Rugia and
Moravia. r h

iSLIP MOKES SOME TROUBLE.
ome Lone Island People Want to be
Heard Very Badly.
But the transfer of the long-imprisoned
passengers to the airy confines of Fire island
was not made without protest, for as soon
as the Islip, L. I., board of health beard
that Governor Flower had removed all
obstacles to the purchase of the island by
providing a check for foO.WX) and guaran
teeing the payment of the remainder soma
t'57,00o the said board of guardians rose
in the might of the:r authority ana put
straws in the road.
Almost a Declaration of War.
The president ordered the assembly of
the Islip board, and two hours later a mass
meeting was held at Ray Shore, delegates
being present from ten and twelve miles
distant, to take action concerning the pro
posed sale and use of Fire Island for a
cholera stat ion. A resolution was adopted
instructing Health Officer W. A. Baker to
board ail vessels, and to employ all men
and means required to prevent any per
sons landing at Fire Island from any and
all vessels or transports that had been ex
posed to the contacion of cholera. Tele
grams were sent to Dr. W. H. Jenkins for
bidding the .landing of any such cholera
suspects, and stating that force would be
csed to pievent it. A large number of
men volunteered their services, were sworn
in as deputies, and went at once on duty.
The Wires Were Kept Hot.
Thus matters rested Saturday night.
Sunday morning the campaign was opened
anain, and Governor Flower becan to hear
of the new trouble. The first man lie saw
yesterday morning at his home in Water
town was a messenger boy who carried a
telegram signed by six "good men and
true," of Babylon Depot, N. Y., earnestly
protestingaainst the use of Fire island as
proposed, at least until the people inter
ested were heard. Mr. Silliman was ths
first signer of the dispatch, and to him
"and others" the governor forthwith re
marked, by wire, that Dr. Jenkins was
boss of the ranch in the cholera belt, and
moreover, that there wasn't any danger,
as the passengers who would be put on
the island would ba "as healthy as you are."
Some More Telegrams.
The next telegram the governor got was
from the passengers transferred from the
Normannia to the Stonington. They
were entirely dissatisfied and wanted to
to be transf, rred at once to Fire Island.
They were told also that Dr. Jenkins was
the czar in this matter. Then a telegram
from Dr. Jenkins arrived asking the gov
ernor to reqnst the state board of health
to keep its hands off. The governor did
so anil received a telegram in reply from
Dr. Balch, of that board, intimating that
"nobody was a-toucliiug of it," and com
plimenting the governor for providing
the cash necessary to get possession of this
But Islip Mobs l'p Again.
Islip wasn't the least bit abashed at all
this, however, and referring to the govern
or's message to the Babylyn Depot peeple,
sent the follo-ving to Secretary Balch: "The
Ilip board of health believes that its con
trol of local health matteri is absolute un
til it fails to doits duty, and that only
then can the state board interfere. It pro
tests against the landing of passengers
from iufected ships, and will use all legal
means in its power to pievent it." To
which Balch replied: "The state of New
York, through its executive, takes Fire
island. The state board of health and local
boards have on authority in the matter." .
Cor. Flower to Come On.
So there the matter stand. That Islip
will have some more to say is more than
probable and it remains to be seen
whether the community is a "biger" man
than the state of Xew York. Gov. Flower
last night wired Dr. Jenkins that in view
of the further complications in the matter
of securing Fire island, he would leave
Watertown at. once for Xew York and
give his personal attention to such
matters. This evidence of the governor's
interest is looked upon as significant and
is expected to be fruitful in steps for the
relief of the situation.
The Landlord Drew the Color Line.
Columbus, Ind., Sept. 12. An exciting
incident took place at the Belvidere hotel,
in this city, Saturday. Bart Dean, adver
tising agent for the Gas City Land com
pany, and a well dressed negro, a porter
on one of the Pennsylvania trains, alighted
from the early train and proceeded to the
hotel, where they registered for breakfast.
Landlord Randall refused to allow the
negro to enter the dining room, and or
dered him to leave the hotel. Dean, who
is a regular boarder at the hotel, and who
brought the negro to breakfast with him,
remonstrated with the landlord. Randall
turned upon Dean and ordered him to
leave also. The negro threatens to bring
suit for damages. '

The wind was north, toward the north

The fire appeared to have caught in one
of the upper stories, which are occupied
by shirt factories, and had made such
headway when discovered that there was
already danger that the front wall, five
f tcries high, would fall into the street.
The stare printing office, directly in the
rear of the Lyon block, was the first to
catch fire from the first blaze. All efforts
to save that establishment were futile,
and it was rapidly gutted. All the stare

are probably a total loss.

lives of two men. Clark Fielder and
James Fudge, of Selma, were putting
down a drive well for John Stadtler, near
the Midland Steel works, when they en

To save the three-inch casing Stadtler
and Fielder were pulling it out, not aware
that the bomb had stuck in it until the
explosion occurred right at the top of
the ground. Pieces of the pipe were hurled
in many directions. Stadtler had his left
leg shattered and Fielder's left shoulder
ira literally torn to fragments. A horse
standing near by also received three pieces
of iron in his body, and will die.
ISloody Fight at Salem.
SALEM, Ind., Sept. 12. John Myers and
his son-in-law, John Brown, got into an
altercation and resorted to knives and pis

breast. Both contestants then clinched
and began to slash each other. Both are
supposed to be fatally injured. The
affair took place on Xorth Main street,
near Myer's house. The men were drink
ing and are bad characters. The trouble
arose from Brown's failure to provide
medical attendance for his sick wife.
