tho deaths of Justices Jackaon and
Strong, the latter retired, simply saying
i that tho court was saddened by these
events. Tho chief justice also referred
to the custom, on the part of the court,
of making a formal call upon the Presi?
dent at tho beginning of the term, but
said the call nocosaarily would be de?
ferred on account of tho absence of the
Chief Executive from tho city.
Acknowledging the introduction of
the new attorney general, Chief Justice

retiring attornoy general with regret
and welcomes his successor."
A number of cases were dismissed

Tho bill to p-evont the spread of
oontagious diseases in tho public
schools, introduced by .7. R. Terry

ud and passed. The bill makes it tho
duty of all practicing physicians in tho
city to report all contagious and infec?
tious diseases within twelve hours
after its existence to tho board of
health and superintendent ot tho public
schools, giving in such roport the name
and rosidenco of the patient and the
nature of tho disease
Any physician falling to do so is
liable to a fine of ten dollars. As Boon
as notified, the superintendent of
Bchojls must give written notice to the
principal of the school nearest to tho

in suoh school to dismiss any or all pu?
pils coming fr.irn the infested family or
known to have been exposed to such
infection, the dismissed pupils, before
resuming their studies, being required
to furnish a certificate from a practicing

superintendent or any teacher or teach?
ers to carry out those requirements
subjects them, individually, to a fine of
ton dollars for each offense.

GEORGIA S MILITARY DISGRACE.
No Parade of State Troops on
At Atlanta, Because the Parade Has Been
Put In Charge of the Captain or an Or?
ganization Kot Enlisted In tho State
Service and the President's Escort Will
Therefore Be Only One Company.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 14.?The an?
nouncement was made this afternoon by
Col. John s. Candlir, tho senior colonel
of the Georgia Volnnteers, that no com?
pany of the rogular national guard will
consent to parade on President's day at
at the exposition, October 23.
Tho reason for this 1b that the expo?
sition directors put tho parade in
charge of Captain J. P. Burko, of the
Gate City Guards, an organization
which is not enlisted in the State ser?
vice, doos not wear the regulation State
uniform and is not undor otUcers com?
missioned by any State authority.
Tho judge advocate general of the
State, more than a year ago, decidod
that the State militia could not legally
parade with tho guard. On this ac?
count that company was not invited
to participate In the parade on tho
opening day of the exposition and upon
Liberty Bell day, but through the ac?
tion, ot the exposition commlttao they
have been placed In charge of tho pro?
cession to escort President Cleveland
to the grounds on tho occasion of his
visit hero next weok.
Colonel Candlor is one of the most
prominent Cleveland Democrats in
Georgia, but It is understood that this
wilv not provont his insisting on a
strict observance of the military la.v
ot tho State. Tho regu'ar militia are
with Colonol Candler, and the indica?
tions aa that tho President's escort
will be confined to a single company.
A RECONCILIATION PROBABLE.
Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Vnnderbilt ."May ho
Rein an led
Brooklyn, N. Y., Oct. 14?it has
become almost an accepted rumor
among tho mombora of tho Four Hun?
dred and particularly among those who
compose the Moadow Brook Hunt Club,
of Long Island, says the Esgla to?
night, that a reconciliation is probablo
between Mr. and Mrs. William K.
Vandorbilt and that Immediately fol?
lowing tho marriasro ot their daughter,
Consuolo,with tho Dukoof Marlborough,
a second ceremony will unito tho parents
a second timo in matrimony.
The marriage of Miss Consuolo Van
derBlltwltb the Dukoof Marlborough is
recognized as more tho wish and desire
of her father than her mother, and this
union has been used by the friends of
both parents to bring about a happy
understanding between them. This has
been kept a close secret in the Inner?
most circles of the Four Hundred, but it
has progressed bo happily that it need
no longer be so closely guarded.

by Minister Kurino, of Japan, from the
foreign ofllce of Tokio.
Tho dispatches do not state specifi?
cally what becatne of tho queen further
than she had disappeared and cannot be
located. Tho oillcials are inclined to
believe, however, that tho unofficial re?
ports of tho queen's death are truo.
At the Corean legislation no word has
been received from the disturbed capi?
tal. The officials aro much exercised,
and do not doubt that the queen has met
her death, although they aro not ready
to abandon hope.

Governor Clarke, of Arkansas.
Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 14 ?"There
may !>?< a tight at Uot Springs, but It
will not be a prize tight," said Governor
Clarke to an Associated Press represen?
tative. "I earnestly hope that extrem??
ineasuros will not be necessary. I
know thoso people, overy ono of them,
and thoy aro my friends, and I should
very much rrgrot to bo compelled to
adopt harsh methods, but the lawa give
me tho authority and supplies tho
means, and if the necessity arises I shall
certainly prevent tho tight at any coat."
The governor finds that the law of
1891 was not legally enacted, leaving
the Stato without a law on tho subject
of prize fighting. Tho law of 1838, in
his opinion, invests in the executlvo
ample authority for carrying out tho
policy and he has decided to adopt It.

According to tho offers contained in

mates that the services of 10 000 men

When questioned in reference to the

San Francisco, Oot. 14.?The reve?
nue cutter Commodore Perry has re?
turned from the Northern sea. As
Captain Smith expresses it: "The
devil's stokerB have been Btlrring up

supposed to iio thousands of feot under

Tho line of islands lying between the
luring sea and the Pacific ocean belong
to the Unltod States. Much has been
written of Bogaslov Island, which has
been throwing up a cloud of steam at
times for years, but it was supposed
that all tho other peaks on this singular
line of Islands wore extinct craters only.
Now as far as tho eye can roach, for a
point in Boring sea and oven at a dis?
tance from the famous Sea Islands,
the rising smoke and steam can be seen
In both directions.
The eruption Is general and so very
lively that at night the airy columns
take on reflections of the fires deep In
tho earth beneath the craters. No?
where else on the globe can such a sight
be witnessed. In tho daytimo only
white smoke or steam is visible. As
dusk comes and darkness fall, the won?
der grows. Tho brlghtor columns show
up In the oold Alaska night frost, and
as It gota darker other vivid curls of
smoke are to bo seen at greater dis?
tances. Sometimes when tho position
of tho observer is advantageous a dozen
or fifteen of those modern pillars of fire
aro in sight.
Tho show of sabtorranoau force is tho
most noteworthy ever obsorved on
American boil. As proof of the mighty
power that Is at work beneath the
islands, a neck of land has boon forced
up out of the sea between B.golov and
Old Bugolov, and the two islands ate
one. It is queer-looking. One cf the
iiassos shown on the chart as connect?
ing Boring Sea with tho groater ocean
to the southward has been closed. These
recks in this neck aro manifestly of
volcanic origin, black and smooth in
surfaco, as if once molted.
