New York, Sept. 1ft. The health In
spectors have reported another case of
cholera. The Yictim, Mary Connolj, 19
years old, residing at 692 Second avenue,
has been removed to the St. John's Guild
floating hospital at the foot of East Six
teenth street. Two suspected cases of
cholera were found in Brooklyn yesterday.
A young German girl, whose name could
not be learned, residing at 536 State street,
was one and Simon Colliuslti, of North
Seventh street, Williamsburg, the other.
The German girl died in a few hours.
She hud been in this country since last
February. Both cases are being carefully

Mayor Grant has issued a proclamation
to the public in which he says the health
department has showed entire competence
to deal with the cholera. He anticipates
no spread of the epidemic and asks the
people to have confidence in the provisions
Adopted by the board for the safety of the
people. He also invites their aid in en
forcing sanitary regulations for the main
tenance of health.
Mr. J. Pierpont Morcan, treasurer of the
chamber of commerce quarantine fund,
reported that up to date he has received
Origin of the Epidemic-
Acting on the theory that cholera must

Itself the authorities have been scouring
New York to ascertain how it happens that
the germ is at work here and in Brooklyn,
It transpired yesterday that heretofore im
migrants taken sick on Ellis island were
taken through the city to North Brothers'
island. That may be one explanation. It
is also stated that rags from European
ports are being landed at Brooklyn daily.
That may account for the cases discovered
over there. More definite are the facts de
veloped regarding the cases in this city,
though they are not conclusive as to the
important question how the cholera got
What Has Been Discovered.
But this has been discovered: Little
Minnie Levinger died Sept. 11. On Aug.
29 the steamer Friesland arrived from
Antwerp and after a few hours detention
was permitted to land her passengers.
Among thes were four young women who
went to 411 East Forty-sixth street, where
Minnie lived. The other passengers scat
tered broadcast all over the country.
The four sisters took much notice of Min
Die and the belief is that escaping the
dangers of the germ they carried with
them it was transferred to Minnie, who
proved an easy prey. A man named Calla
han is also down with apparent cholera
and a plausible connection seems to be
established between him and immigrants
who, arriving in the city by trans-Atlantic
steamers, went south by the Mallory
line, to whose pier Callahan was often
taken by bis business. He was a butcher.

A Late Arrival from Hamburg.
BALTIMORE, Sept. 16. The sensational
rumor that a girl had died of cholera in
this city was circulated yesterday after
noon. Miss Mamie Mencide, a Russian,
who arrived from Hamburg eleven days
ago, died at 1151 East Lombard street
Monday night. Two physicians attended
her, and one of them insists that death
was due to cholera. The other asserts that

child bad been suffering from blood-poisoning,
and afterward contracted a severe
cold, and when the doctor was called was
swallowing its phlegm, which caused diar
rhoea. The child died in seventy -two
hours after cholerine was developed,

SYMPATHY FOR A COMRADE.
Gen. Palmer Feelingly Refers to the
ALBANY, Sept. 16. Commander-in-Chie!
Palmer, G. A. R., yesterday issued the
following: "The painful circumstances
which prevent the president from attend
ing the great reunion of the veterans in
Wnshington is deeply regretted by all
his comrades in arms, regardless of party.
He was a participant in the grand review
of the arm irs in 1805 and had taken a deep
interest in the coming encampment, and
it was expected that he would not only
participate in the march, which promises
to be the calmination of the great gather
ings of the union veterans, but in all the
festivities of the week. The critical ill
ness of his beloved wife has compelled
him him to remain by her bedside.
Speakinic out of the depth of my heart,
and voicing the feelings of all his com
rades, we pray that he who ruleth armies
and nations give our president strength
and fortitude to bear his great affliction
and that the partner of his life may be re
stored to lira Itb."
Mrs. Harrison Somewhat Itetter.
LOON Laee, N. Y., Sept. 16. Drs. Gar
diner and Doughty made an examination
of Mrs. Harrison last night and were fav
orably impressed with the condition of
their patient. They found no accumula
tion of the watery substance in the luug
cavity. Mrs. Harrison Yestod easier during
the entire day, and w conscious all the
time. The physicians, are of the opinion
that there has been a slfght improvement,
but they do not consider it sufficient to
justify any strong hope that Mrs. Harri
son will recover. She appears to be more
cheerful, but the intense nervousness re
mains and acts as an offset to the bodily
improvement. Messages of sympathy
from all parts of the country continued to
pour in on the president yesterday.

Cincinnati. Sept. 16. At the meeting
yesterday of the biennial conclave of the

headquarters at some city was beaten by
a large majority.

Chattanooga, Sept. 16. With General
W. S. Rosecrans as president the Society
of the Army of the Cumberland met yes
terday on the field of Chicamaugua where
twenty-nine years ago, under the same
leader, they fought in one of the bloodiest
battles of modern times. At night a pub
lic meeting was held at the First M. E.
church in this city, Mayor Andrews, a
Confederate veteran, delivering the address
of welcome, which was followed by the
annual oration before the society by Gen
eral H. V. Boynton, who is at the head
of the movenent to make a national park
of the famous battle ground. Among
those present were Generals Rosecrans,
Wood, Baird, Carter, Morgan, Reynolds,
Wiseman and Warner.
Went Out to the Hattlefleld.
At 0 a. m. nearly all the veterans took
train for the battlefield and Park hotel,
about half stopping on the field and the
others going on to the hotel, where the
business meeting of the society took place.
At the meeting there were about 100.
Seated on the stage were General Rose
crans, General H. V. Boynton, General J.
S. Fullerton and Colonel John W. Steel.
Business was almost entirely of a routine
nature. Reports were presented, ad
dresses made and other minor matters
given their attention. The plan of the
monument to General Sheridan wasshown
to the assembled veterans.' They seemed
to like the design and emphasized their
approval by agreeing to pay Sculptor
Ward, who is the artist, ,500 on account.
Roster of the Surviving Vets.
A movement was placed on foot to have
each regimental commander of the Army
of the Cumberland secure a complete roster
of his command. These will be carefully
corrected and printed. It was found that
there are 80,000 survivors of the Cumber
land army, and the task of completing the
roster will not be a small one by any
means. On the walls of the ball room
were placed charts giving the names of
each body of the Army of the Cumberland
engaged in the battle of Chicamauga. The
movements made by each com maud were
also noted. These charts were decidedly
interesting to the veterans, and received a
great deal of attention.
Photographed the "General."
After the meeting adjourned everybody
went to the battlefield and spent the rest
of the day there. During the day the old
engine "General" was pulled out to Chica
maugua. There it was photographed.
Conductor Fuller, who had charge of the
train when it was captured during the
war, with Mr.tand Mrs. D. J. Gracy and
a few others were on board. The photo
graphing of the old engine created much
interest. During the afternoon the com
mittee on time and place of holding the
next meeting decided to recommend
Cleveland, , as the next place of ru t
ing. December, 193, was named as tne
Strolled Abont Lookout Mountain.
Those veterans who did not go out to the
field "took in" Lookout mountain and re
visited the scene of their victory "among
the clouds." One of the humorous scents
was the manufacture of relics. Small bojs
beat two bullets together, readily disposed
of the result, telling the buyers that the
Siamese appearance was due to their hav
ing met in mid air. Others inserted old
minnie balls into carefully bored holes in
small pieces of wood, the date of whose
birth was some years posterior to the war.
Everything went and nobody kicked at a
