New York, Sept. 14. Reports by wire
from Fire island early this morning
were to the effect that the Pegasus, with
the naval reserve and militia on board,
had not arrived there. The report caused
some anxiety for the safety of the men
and ship, as the storm outside is quite
New York, Sept. 14. When the news
reached Fire island that the supreme court
had dissolved Judge Barnard's injunction,
and the further news that a boai load of
militia and navy reserve men were on
their way, the mob which had kept nearly
500 people in a state of starvation for
nearly twenty-four hours, melted away
and the passengers on the Cepheus were
landed amid the wildest scenes of joy.
COMMON SENSE TRIUMPHS.
The Supreme Conrt Declines to Become
New York, Sept. 14. The state author
ities were either prepared to knock out an
injunction with force, or they knew in
advance what the general term of the
suprme court would do with Barnard's
restraining order. For when the Pegasus
left the pier in North river a little after
11 a. m. yesterday she not only had on
board 300 men of the naval reserve, but
250 men of the "bloody" Sixty-ninth all
armed to the teeth. They steamed away
to Fire island with orders to put the peo
ple on the Cepheus into the Surf hotel
on the island, regardless of who might be
in the way. The idea seemed to be that
if anybody was in the way it would be so
much the worse for anybody.
The Conrt Diwiolve the Injunction.
At 2 p. m. it was announced to Governor
Flower that the supreme court had dis
solved the injunction, Barnard dissenting
As soon as Governor Flower could do so he
Beut a dispatch to the captain of the Ceph
eus, telling hini of the fact, and ordering
him tolnnii his pas-senders at. once, lie also
ordered the slieriil of Suffolk county to
lend every aid in his power by enlisting
law-abiding citizens to assist in the land
ing of the Norman ilia's passenger. A
third dispatch was sent to the sheriff say
ing that troops were ou the way to enforce
order. The military force of investment
will equal 1,000 men. This is the fiist time
the naval reserve has been called out for
active duty, and they will be given an op
portunity to show what they can do as
It emit cheTerra Firm a at Last.
With the assistance of the proceedings
mentioned above, the cabin passengers of
the Hamburg-American steamship Nor
mnnnia, whose unenviable experience of
the past few days has attracted to them
widespread attention and sympathy, have
at last reached a haven of rest and safety.
Late yesterday afternoon for the first
time in many days their feet touched
Mother earth, and last night they were
quartered in the Surf hotel on Fire island,
surrounded by all the comforts of a home
and by a cordon of police who will pro
tect them from the attacks, the hoots and
the jeers of the brutal residents of the bay
The Anxious Ones Rejoiced.
The news that the passengers could
land nnder the decision of the supreme
conrt brought great joy to the auxious
ones on the steamboat and corresponding
consternation among the brutal residents
of Islip, Babylon and other points near
by. The persons who had been "protect
ing their rights" changed their miuds upon
this subject in very short order and began
leaving Fire island in small boats for their
homes on the shore. The piteous appeals
of the unfortunate passengers could not
move these sturdy clam diggers Monday,
but when they heard troops would soon
be on the scene they moved from the
island in a hurry and soon the place was
THE HAPPY LANDING EFFECTED,
A Scene of Wild Knthuslasm Among the
Preparations were at once made to land
the passengers, who had crowded the rails
and were cheering themselves hoarse, even
the women and children joining in the
jollification. The band played "The Red,
White, and Blue," and there was a long
roar of delight. The deputy sheriffs were
ordered to keep the clam diggers away
from the hotel, but found no one to inter
fere with. The natives had decamped. By
5:30 p. m. t he 497 passengers were on sbore,
and here they went wild again. The wait
ers and chambermaids at the Surf hotel
joined in the tejoicing, and cheers were
given for Flower, Jenkins, and all the oth
ers who had aided in this consummation.
It Was a Joyful Time.
The greatest excitement prevailed.
Women who bad so long borne up nnder
all the distressing circumstances and had
o heroically endured all the hardships
that have thus far attended the Noruian
nia's eventful voyage, appeared to lose all
self-control in the joyous moment and
wept and shouted and jumped about like
a number of school children women em
bracing each other and men grasping each
other's hands like comrades after a decla
ration of peace. Preceded by the band,
which played lively martial and national
airs, the crowd of passengers marched
down the gang-plank to the Surf hotel,
waving bats, throwing umbrellas and
shawls in the air, and altogether acting
more like so many Insane patients than
reputable and, in many instances, well
; Lottie Collins Sings "Boons-Da-Ay a."
', Strs. K. M. Palmer gave a concert last
Bight in the parlor of the hotel. This was
ton to relieve the distraction prevalent,
gcharweuka, the eminent pianist, played,
and Lottie Collins sang Boom-de-ays. "
Otner artists also appeared. An offer has
been extended by wealthy Bay Shore citi
zens offering help, provisions, and serv
ants. The telegraph wire to Fire Island
was taken for government uses late in the
afternoon, and all press telegrams are in
Situation Slsed lp.
Everything at quarantine is encourag
ing. There have been no deaths reported
and hat few suspects. With quarantine
matters perfected by having a
place where the uninfected can be
landed, the hope and belief which
was strong from the start that cholera
could be stopped in the harbor and stamped
out amounts almost to a certainty now.
The most pressing peril is certainly past,
as vessels from Europe will hereafter in
all probability have few suspects or sick
NO STRIKE ON THE READING.
A Mistake Corrected and Leased Line
Philadelphia, Sept. 14. There will be
Do strike on the Reading system. At the
conference yesterday all matters were am
icably adjusted. Twenty-five committee
men, with Chief Arthur as their spokes
man, conferred with President McLeod and
General Manager Sweigart in the Read
ing's general office, from 2 o'clock until
2:45, and the meeting was harmonious
throughout. When it was explained that
Engineer William Schaefer, of the P. and
It. railroad, who was discharged for b
longing to the brotherhood, had not signed
a contract to denounce labor organizations,
President McLeod ordered that he be rein
stated. The Main Line Only Involved.
Engineers John Bowman and William
Grakelam, of the same line, however, will
not be reinstated for they violated their
signed agreement with the company by
joining the organization. President Mc
Leod assured the employes of the leased
lines that they would not be disturbed
and as the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers has not been recognized on the
main line for several years the apprehen
sions of the leased lines were soon dis
pelled. Membership in the Reading Re
lief association on the leased lines will be
optional with the employes and they ca n
join what labor organizations they please.
The main line employes, however, must
abide by the old rules.
McLeod and Arthur Swap Compliments.
After the conference McLeod said:
"When two sensible and fair-minded men
get together referring to himself and Mr.
Arthur they can soon arrive at a satis
factory conclusion. Everything is satis
factorily arranged and there will be no
trouble." After McLeod had delivered his
good opinion of Arthur, the latter to the
newspaper men said the president was one
of the most pleasant and level-headed men
he ever met. Chief ArUiur has left for his
home, as also have the other delegates.
WORSE THAN BARBARIANS.
The People Who Are Responsible for
PITTSBURG, Sept. 14. Seven-year-old
Mary Lechman, who lived with her uncle
at McKeesport, was found almost dead
Monday evening under the floor of the
warehouse of the Keystone Brewing com
pany. Two boys had chased a runaway
chicken under the warehouse and crawled
In after it. While groping around in the
dark one cried to the other that he had
found it. They pulled and fought for
what they supposed was the chicken,
when they heard a groan. The lads
crawled out faster than they went in and
called Officer Manning. The latter ripped
np the boards and found the child.
Believed to Have Eaten a Rat.
She had crawled in there Sunday week
to escape a beating and her uncle had not
thought it worth while to get her out.
Near the child were found the bones of
what is supposed to be a rat. It is sup
posed she caught the brewery rodent and
in her starved condition killed aud ate it.
She is nothing bur skin and bone, and can
not live. She was covered with dirt and
filth, and her hair was torn out in spots
by the roots. It is supposed she had been
crawling among the joists without
finding an outlet. Her uncle and his wife
are under arrest.
Irrigation Pays Pretty Well.
Washington, Sept. 14. The census
office has issued a bulletin which contains
the summarized results of a special inves
tigation into the condition of agriculture
in the arid states and territories and par
ticularly as to the practical results of irri
gation. Nearly thirty million capital is
invested in productive irrigation and
the returns have been over $ (i".C00,:X)0 or
over 218 per cent. The cost of the irriga

Much Interest in Mrs. Peary.
St. Johxs, Nd.; Sept. 14. Much enthu
siasm and rejoicing here over the success
ful issue of the Greenland expedition. The
return of a white woman, unharmed and
unscathed, from the icy north, when it
was generally feared that she would never
again emerge from hr winter abode
among the Esquimaux, has drawn special
attention to the arriving party, and given
to it a prominence singularly striking.

' Doubtless It's a Great Fair.
St. J06EPH, Mo., Sept. 14. The greatest
fair and race meeting ever held in the Mis

with lovely weather and a big crowd. Ex

herds of cattle, swine, sheep, and stables
of thoroughbred horses. Exposition hall
is crowded with exhibits. Over 800 fast
borses are here, including the peerless
queen of the turf, Nancy hiV, .
GREAT BRITAIN AND VENEZUELA.
Ex-Secretary Bayard Gives the True Isr
wardness of the Trouble.
Wilmixgtoh, DeL, Sept. 14. In an In
terview with a United Press reporter yes
terday regarding the Venezuela question
ex-Secretary of State T. F. Bayard had
the following to say: "The boundaries of
Venezuel a where they approach those of
the British Guinea has been for a long;
time a vexed question between Venezuela
and the government of Great, Britain or
rather private companies of British snb-
iects engaged in gold mining in what la
mown as the Orinoco region.
Officials Play a Grab Game.
"I think a true history of the case will
show that the differences had their origin
in large mining concessions obtained by
British subjects as private enterprises
from the government of Venezuela and
consequently the investment of a great
deal of private British capital in the de
velopment of these rich mining regions.
After these investments were made and
the property became valuable these pri
vate owners found themselves subjected
to the exact iou and tyrannical demands of
the Venezuelan officials. Therefore, it
was that they claimed British protection
against spoliation by Venezuelan officials,
and were desirous of seeing the British
jurisdiction extend over that territory in
which their mining operations were conducted."
