Not Allowed to Land, Food and Bedding Refused by the Mad Savages. Islip, a Name Made Infamous by the Citizens Who Dwell There. Unfortunate Passeagers of the Qearan. tined IhiJp Normanla-Codauct Abhor rent and Digraceful. QUARANTINr, Sept. 12.-This day will probably be looked on in futare years as one of the most horrible reproaches on American civilization that ever oocurred in Amerioan history. The federal government on one side, a state government on the other, both anxious to be a rescuing party, and in front were local authorities and pri vate people forcing back the victims from their haven of refuge. On Sunday the un fortunate cabin passengers of the Norms nia. who for eight days have been confined on the cholera-strioken ship, were greeted with the information that they were to go to Fire island. The iron steamboat Cepheus was hired, and the first and sec ond class passengers started for the prom ised land. The weather was rough and many were sea sick. After a voyage of about thirty-six miles the captain weak ened and said he was afraid to take the Cepheus over the bar without a pilot. In consequence the Cepheus started back and the first elass passengers once more put on board the rickety old Stonington liner. The second cabin passengers were kept on board the Cepheus. without beds or even a pillow on which to lay their heads. They were strewn about the settees and carpeted decks of the steamer. Early on Monday morning the captain of the Cepheus discovered that he required coal and water and could not get to Fire Island without them. He calmly steamed to quarantine jetty and made fast alongside and seat word shortly after four to wake the health gfficer up. Dr. Jenkins decided to let her take water and coal at her own dock. This was done and at about 10 o'clock the Cephens once more started down the bay to embark the first saloon passen gers and take them to Fire island. The trip was again a rough one, but there were more than the elements to be met. A storm had been brewing around Babylon and Islip mines the first rumor of Fire island being turned into a quarantine station was heard. The Babylonians and near neigh bors oared not for the sufferings of fellow sountrymen and women, they did not care if they died of cholera, starved or were drowned; all they thought of in their craven hearts was the totally improbable proposition of their being attacked by the pestilence, owing to the propinqaity of a number of ladies, gentlemen and children who never had the cholera in their midst, who lived for a fortnight on board a plague stricken ship without being touched, and who were returning to their own homes. The craven-hearted creatures, blind from their own imaginary fears rather than from any real danger, not only invoked the arm of the law by means of that anomolons legal stay entitled injunction, but assembled as an armed mob, hundreds strong, to drive these helpless women and children back to the cholera ship, and to, at all events, possible death. The governor begged and implored, Dr. Jenkins prayed the men to allow the passengers to land, I telegram after telegram was flashed over the wire assuring the men of Islip and those I of Babylon that they ran no risk. They r were obdurate. They would not aive in, I and the passengers of the Normania are now, on Monday night, lying in an inlet by Fire island. The passengers appointed a committee, with Senator McPherson as chairman, to I confer with mob violence. The latter re fused to withdraw the injunction, and so far to-night at least they can claim a vie tory, gained over 471 helpless women and children and their equally inoffending hus- t bands. THE GREAT SHAME. Men With Less Pity in Their Hearts Thea Wild Wolves Have, FIRE ISLAND, Sept. 12.--There were ex citing scenes here this afternoon. and up to the present hour, owing to demonstrations by from three hundred to four hundred bay men and others, led by Supervisor W. H. Young and Ex-ýnpervisor John H. Vail, of Islip town, who took possession of the dock, armed with shotguns, oars and other weap one, and twice resisted all attempts made to land passengers from the Cepheus. At five p. m. the Cepheus anchored about two hun dred feet from the dock. As the boat ran Ilongaide the dock the first time, a hundred voices shouted, "You cannot land here; go back to New York!" Others shouted threats of throwing men overboard if they stepped from the vessel onto the dock. A hauser was thrown to a lost, which was immedi ately thrown back. Five policemen on the Cepheus climbed to the gunwale and mo tioned as though to draw revolvers, but went no further. P. L. Wall. whom Gov. Flower authorized to take oharge of the hotel here, who was also aboard the Cephuse, asked the mob to lieten to him, and then said: "I represent the state of New York and ant authorized to land here and assume oharge." The crowd shouted: "Show us your au thority!" He thereupon produced the paper, which he began to read, but could not make himself heard. Many passengers, mostly women, appealed to the crowd to allow them to Imnd, but the answers that came were derisive shouts. Lawyer Reid and Supervisor Young in formed those aboard the steamboat that Justice IBarnard had granted an injunction restraining them front landing. Mr. Wall asked to see the injunction, but as the doc ument had not yet ar, ived it could not be produced. They stated, however, that it was on the way. The Oepheus then basked out and turned. While turning D)r. Voikht secured a rowboat to take him to the steamer and had gone half way when the wen rowing refused to go further and turned back. He made two other unsuccessful attempts to reach the steamer. The Cephuse again ran alone. side the docks, but a solid line of deter mined bay men repelled the attempt to land. Mr. Wall again asserted his author. ity, but when he stated that the authority was from Dr. Junkine, the kealth ofieor. the' rowd Jeered and Supervisor Yonng shooted: "We don't recognize Dr. Jenkins or Gov. Flower's authority here." After the Cepheu anchored a boat wae lowered and P. L. Wall and Capt. Tripple rowed in it to the dock but were not al lowed to step ashore. Mr. Wall said he desired to confor with the committee, whereapon Averal persons shouted, "Super. vilor Young represents us." "lhen let me ashore and Supervisor Young and I will talk the matter oer." said Mr. Wall. A moore of voices answered: "No, no, you can't some ashore here; go back to New York." Mr. Wall replied, "I represent the state of New York." "Show us your nothority then," responded the crowd. Mr. Wall took a eaper out of his pocket and read from it as follows: ol whom it may concern: P. L. Wall is authorized to take charge of the turf hotel and passengers. WM. E. JENKINS, Health Officer Port of New York. Supervisor Young replied, "I do not rec ognize Dr. Jenkins. Thlis i not a part of New York, and I do not propose to allow any passengers from infected ships to land in the town of Islip." "But we have no sick person aboard. Everybody is well and I appeal to you in behalf of American women and children to allow the people to land." said Mr. Wall. "We think'6f our own women and chil dren first and intend to protect them at all hazards," replied the supervisor. While this conversation was going on, Dr. Woga appeared on the dock and began telling Dr. Wall that he had charge there, when sev eral bay men crowded around him shoot ing, "throw him into the water l Drown him!" and would probably have carried out these threats but for the, reporters. The boat came off again, however, and Mr. Wall asked to have provisions sent aboard to the Cepheus. Some in the crowd shouted, "All right; let them have all the provisions they want," but the greater number answered, "No, no; give them nothingl Let them go back to New York." Dr. Voight stated that he was informed that Gov. Flower had telegraphed Sheriff A. B. Darling, of Suffolk county, to come here with deputies and keep the state prop erty elear of intruders and protest the Cepheus passengers in landing. Many threate were made of burning or eutting down the dock if the passengers began to land, and a number of men procured axes with which to out away sufficient of the dock near the hotel to prevent persons reachi.p the latter. People here have been made insane by the exercise of power. They had been ap pealed to in the name of God to permit the oldest women and youngest children to be taken to the hotel for the night; if this re quest were granted their lives might be saved; but the mob refused with brutal jeers. Events since nightfall have dis played a degree of cruelty well nigh incon ceivable. After the Cepheus came so an chor two police officers rowed to the land ing and asked that a letter be taken to Dr. Voigt. The mob tefused to allow the letter to be brought ashore and drove the police off with threats. As it was growing dark a small boat came from the direction of the steamer. It was rowed by two policemen, and in the stern stood a gray-haired man, Robert M. Thompson. As the boat ap prroached the landing the mob gathered threateningly. Mr. Thompion asked to be heard on behalf of two hundred women and children on the steamer who were suf fering from hanger, exposure and exhaus. tion. After some minutes of insulting re torts by the mob, he was allowed to speak. He said the men on the steamer did not ask to land. The young women would re main if necessary, bat the old womenn some of them grandmothers, and the children, saffering, not for comforts, but for decent ca e, should be allowed to land. They would be returned to the steamer after a night's rest and one meal. Attorney Wil lard P. Reid answered if the captain of the steamer would come ashore the people to whom he spoke would consider the request. After saying he would attempt to bring the captain back with him Mr. Thompson returned to the steamer. It was dark ex cept for the light of the stars when the boat was seen soeming back to the landing place. When the boat almost touched the landing a tall spare figure was seen standing in the bow. "It is Senator McPherson, of New Jer sey." salled out Mr. Thompson, who was still in the stern. Senator McPherson stood silent for some moments looking at the mob he could dimly see crowding to the edge of the wharf, and ordering the men who were rowing to back water when the boat drifted too near the landing. "Citizens," said the oenator at last, "the captain declines to come ashore. If you will give me your injunction papers, I give you my word of honor that I will give them to him and that he will accept them as legally seived." "Bring your captain ashore as you prom ised," said attorney Reid. "That would accomplish no more than my offer to you," continued the senator. "Yon want him for some other purpose than you have stated." Attorney lReid replied that the captain must conme ashore. "I do not understand you," said the senator. "You appear to hesitate over some legal quibble and your hesitation means unspeakable sufferings, probably death, to women and children." The crowd remained silent. "If we can bring him ashore will you agree to let the suffering, innocent, helpless peo pie land?" "They cannot land!" yelled the mob. The senator tu:ned his fnce up to the mob and in an impressive voice said: "I appeal to you, men, in.the name of God, not to be longer led into heartless cruelty by this at torney, but to give year consent that these women and children be taken from the boat where they have nothing to eat, no place to sleep, where the common decencies of life cannot be longer observed: where the uanroundings ate foul from sea-siokuees. Before you answer think what will be done. ]iemember your own wives and children. Be manly: do not bring eve lasting disgrace upon your names; be men," It did not seem as if human beings capa ble of unerstandiug the language in which they were being addressed could with stand the appeal, but the crowd stood there, sullen and sltent, while the lawyer said: "They cannot land. It we permit them we give away our case." "They cannot land!" echoed the mob. Senator Mel'herson sank down in the boat overcome. Mr. Thompson cried out. "You poor people, you are being duped by a tricky lawyer." "We are no more tricky than you," an swered Lawyer Reid. Mr. Thompson then said, "You will at least allow Dr. Voight to send as food and blankets." "Not unless the captain comes ashore," answered the lawyer, and the mob ap plauded. When the boat rowed back to the steamer, the newspaper men, who listened to this, at once went to every one of the health board who were present and begged that this crime be not committed. At 8:30 o'clock a meeting of tile board was held in the hotel office where a resolu tion was passed that if l)r. Voigt would go with Lawyer Reid to the steamer and see that the injunction papers were served, the board woulI allow foodl and blankets to be taken aboard. I)r. Voigt was made to promise, if this were allowed, that no at tempt would be made to land passengers. On one of the trips of the ship's yawl to the e landing for bedding Mr. 'T'horitau camne in theboot and asked if leporters would take a petition from the passengers to be telegraphed to (hov. Flower. The crowd on the landing snid nothing could be taken from the ship. Mr. Thompsion stated that the sheets of note paper he had fumigated according to the requirementsof the United States postoflle. A member of the Islip board of health was appealed to, but he refused to receive the dispatch. The re porters offered to cony at front dictathin, and by the aid of a oupn le of lanterns this weas aooomplished. The dispatch is as follows: On beard the Cophens, off Fire island, e 11:1:o p. m., Sept. 12, 15112. To Go(. Flower: I Coutinued on Meeead ruage.

The Seeretary Is Advised That He Is net Authorized to Put Pony on the 1.ist. Pony, in Madison county, will not be in the race for the capital. Yesterday a letter rwas mailed by the secretary of state setting forth why that place is not ineluded in the ° list of townU whioh have sent in their aomi rations. The reasons are: First. There is e no certificate of nomination of the town of I Pony for the permanent location of the y seat of government attached to the doon ment sent an by the people of Pony. The letter continues: "Nor have you anywhere I named in said document the town of Pony as the place of permanent location of the seat of government. You have nominated the town of Pony for the state capital of the state of Montana. which has already been provided for by section two of article a ten of the constitution. You will observe that the act above quoted providss for the submassion of the question of permanent location of the seat of government, and not the state capital. "Second-The parties signing this docu I ment have failed to set out opposite their L names that they were electors in Montana; they have failed to show that they are resi dents of any county in Montana; they have failed to show their place of bhasiness and business address, which as required by the provisions of section two of said act, which reads as follows: 'lee. 2. Nomina tions of towns or cities in gandidacy for the place of location of the sedt of government shall be made in the following manner: There shall be presented to and filed with the secretary of the state a certificate of nomination, containing the name of the town nominated for the place of location of the seat of government, the name of the county wherein the same is situated, and signed by twenty-five electors residing within the county wherein the town named shall be situated. and containing with each signature the place of residence, business and business address of each elector re spectively; and froxi and after the day of filing of the said certificate, the town or city named therein shall be deemed to have been regularly nominated, and shall be listed on ballots as hereinafter provided: Provided, that all nominations mast be made not less than sixty days preceding the general election in tD. year 1892.' 'For the reasons herein noted and which are approved by the attorney general, I am satisfied that I was not authorized to place the town of Pony in the published list of towns and cities placed in nomination. "I have been advised that the provisions of section two are mandatory and not direa tory, and that it is obligatory upon me to closely follow the provisions of said see tion.
