The fiat of the national committee, as sembled at the receut Cleveland spread, at which de ex. president, Losses i roker, Murphy, Whitney and otners sat down, has gone forth, and the great letter writer of Buxard's Lay will be heard from no more, except on very rare occasions. The ex-pres.deut was ever ready to reply to questions until at last hit daily communications pub lished in the newspapers became the provokers of many a sarcastic remark. There waa considerable talk about the letters, but no one seemed able to sug gest a certain way of stopping the thing. You know Cleveland has a mind of his own, and he is about the last man in the wor.d that auyUjd j w.th any sens. tiveuess at ail cares to advise alout his personal habits, and this letter-writing had become a mere hab-.t. but when he came down to New v fcod sort o' opened h.s heart and ksjejajajaj tractable.. hke, one of those in ited b the dinner suggested th- advis abil.ty of ceasing to honor with a letter every individual who had 2 cents to spara to buy a postage stamp and se:; 1 a letter to him.

Sept. 16.--One death and one new case of the plague is what ttM oftcial report of the health board ssys of the eholera situation this afternoon, fks death of Charlotte i'eck, a woman who esp rad yesterday, is attr billed to tho p ague, another i ase. that of Edwin Hoppe, who also died yesterday, is un-t'-r investigat on The new easethat of Mary Counerty.a young lr.sh woman who lives in a crowded BoOOOd avenue tenement - is also pronounced to be cholera by the doctors. She will die. I he liealtti tsjard seems to be woi k.ng very slowly and is getting rattled by the various demands made upon its time. A v gorous hunt is being made for new cholera cases, but tne actual developments are slow, and the bacter.o o.cal experts who conduct the examinations are snail-like m sizing up the suspected cases. Two days is about the quickest time in which tney have heretofore made up their minds regarding the character of tne cases called to their attention. Ttiey were four days In finding that the first victim died of ttie cholera. Jenkins, iu sp-te ot his ettreme nervousness and conviviality, Thick one night last week led to a wild tour of the newspaper offices, is rjnick to act sometimes too quick and his DTPtdiliOO in dealing with sus pected cholera cases renders the de crepit movements of the board ot health exasperating.

The Bohemia had on board 653 tet-rage passengers and seventy-seven ;:i the crew, all of whom were passed and found well. The ship's condition as to cleanliness is first class. When tne news of tne Bohemia's condition wu given out, Ir.

This is common re mark to be heard in t'hvago and poo lue are bvgiuu.ng to be :eve it is true. One can almost feel 'he pu.se of ths ai n n ( kkasgO, and 1 doubt if any city as far from New t'ork as Chicago foi s the mllueuce of ttie cholera ag la tiou aa much as Chicago does. Nobody IS going to New urk and very few are now com. ng trom New York west, t cause every txxly who ecu: 1 got away from that city at the first iiit uiat.ou that the dread d.-ease was an kit . i her doors. In this way the effect on this City is notable, but there is also au impalpable iutiuei.ee br.ng exerted ty tne Qailf reports ot the inc dm I stages of the scourge in New York bay. Though business connected to the world's fair is by no means UsiSg sen ously impaired there s a fooling ak.n to terror, lest cholera should spread in Europe and repel for moutns to come tneeiloitsof the continental authon tiot to niamp it out.

A nd speaking of the world's fair a former director of that enterprise said to me today: "Do you know how many men have beeu killed at the world's lair grounds since work was begun "' "1 wo or three, 1 amagine," was niy reply. "One hundred and eighty-nine men have lot their lives there," was tha startling Hi foment I told the ex-uirector that this wa difficult to believe.

As sack dOOth occurred they doubtle-s reported it in two or three Unas, b it t:.ey have never made a re capitulation.'' "Do you know also that workmen are permitted to drink 1 uuor while working on those high buildings'" the gentleman aUo aekod me. Li I was evidently doetinod to tn-catechised I in formed him that he could assume abso lute ignorance by me ot a 1 world s in r matters and proceed. He continued: "Well, tha t h also true, and I regard it as not only reprehensible, but criminal. There is no liquor sold within the grounds n: retail, but boat and l.qtior wagons have free access.
