Tho steamship Alosla ot tho Fabro lino
J blch had arrived during tho night previous
a found by tbo Health ofllconi to bo a plague
flhlp when thoy visited hor yesterday morning
Tho GO human beings aboard had had 1 tor
rlblo ollowpasvonear tho drondud Asiatic
cholera Despite all the efforts In thn direction
of trontmont fumigation and what llttlo of
Isolation Is pondblo in ono of the bin ocean
tenements tho disease had spread from tho
ilnslo cnso that llrst dovelopod and tho
Alonlas bill ot health reoordod olnht deaths
and boro tho names ot tour yet Buffering with
tbo infectious disease
Dr A W Smith tho brother of tho Health
Officer was tbo boarding physician on duty
yesterday Bunrlsa found several vessels
awaIting his attentions Tho boarding tug Is
laid up with 1 broken ahoft and tho work nt I
tho Quarantine station in tho moantimo has to
be dono with 1 rowboat two stroncarmod
oarsraon taking tho place ot tho steam engine
The work of tho examinations on this account
and because of tho extra vigilance that hasob
talnfld for some time ROOS on rather slowly So
I wu nearly oclock when tho Alosla was
reached As Dr Uinlth clambered up hor sldo
on the swaying rope ladder a small boy about
I yean old called out to hIm
I you dont take mo off this ship Ill shoot
you
youThe Doctor paid no nttontlon to thIs hardly
giving himself time to think that it sounded
rather queer Hut his foot bad no more than
touched the dock when ho heard what was
aero startling from tho Captain
We havo sickness aboard and wo think it Is
the cholera was the Captains statement
The ships doctor who stood by though unable
to speak or understand English know what
was meant when Dr Smith said inquir
ingly Asiatic cholera and ho nodded hIs
bead affirmatively Tho health Officer
sprang back to the railing and
passed the word to tho small boat Associated
Press Reporter Leo was in it and ono ot tho
Doctors assistants wit tho disinfecting chemi
cals ot the kind used ordinarily in tho way of
precaution Mr Leo and the assistant ware
ordered not to oomo aboard and to stand off
from tbs ship to BOO that no othor vessels came
close to her Dr Smith and the ships doctor
with Cart Vallat as interpreter then made an
examination of tho whole ships company
From what ho was told of tho symptoms
And what ho saw of tho patients Dr Smith
unhesitatingly concurred in tho diagnosis that
the outbreak was ono of genuine Asiatic chol
era Tho ships bill of health contained entries
made by tho American Consuls at tho citIes
from which her passengers wore recruited
Consul Philip Carroll of Palermo reported Ill
toon deaths a day thor from cholera Consul
Wallace 8 Jones of Messina reported only two
a day Edward Gamphauson of Naples made
an oven moro discouraging enter namely tbnt
the plague had bon there for twelve weeks
and was Increasing but that no figures could
be given of tho seizures or deaths except that
the mortality among those stricken reached
the appalling proportion of 70 per cent At
Genoa little cholera was reported
Dr Bmlth ordered tftntthestonmor should be
returned to the lower bay and wont ashore to
report tbe matter to his chief Health omcer
William 11 Hmlth Tbe latter wont aboard the
Injected ship and made an UboRr Ho
found there wore only three cabin passengers
Tho steerage passengers numbered 6G1 and
the crew 46 The ship had left Marseilles Aug
83 and Naples whore her steerage passengers
were taken aboard Sopt3 The paolo over
the spread of tho plague was known to bo
great all over Italy and the anxiety to floe
from tho danger was crowding all outgoing I
vessels Some effort was mid to prevent
any one supposed to be of dangerously recent
arrival from a known Infected district from
becoming a passenger AH Maples itself Is
afflicted with the disease this was naturally
I I 9it to an Impossibility But as tho days
I wont by at sea eight days being the supposed
limit of incubation after which the develop
ment of the disease is not looked for and the
I Uth September passed without a case being
reported tho ships officers breathed more
freely and thought they had escaped But on
the 12th a case was discovered tbat looked
the cholera and was decided BO to bo
Health Officer Hmlth says there Is no doubt
that the disease had been developing 1 duy or
two but that Its character was unsuspected
dlarrhcua being quite prevalent among tho I
passengers The symptoms of Lulgl Maria I
axed 23 the first patient were those nausea
cramps and diarrhoea and his death which
occurred on the 15th was by the sudden col
lapse that is characteristic of cholera On tho
lame day Paul Antonio Bnldagerla aged SB
also died lie had been seized In the moan
10nn
time but the symptoms had developed moro
rapidly Joan lie Mivolln aged 40 one
of the crew who dlod tbo next day
choired n still moro malignant form
of the plague loss than twentyfour form
tarvonlng between this time of his seizure and
his death On Sept 17 Joan Homma tiged 80
Bnotnor sailor was smitten with the plague
and on the 19th al dlod Heratln do Llr aged
31 a ctearage passenger dlod on tho 20th and
I Anna Voltrl aged 47 another steerage
passenger died on tho 21st FraucescaMatteo
aged 141 who was Ilek when Ibo came aboard
died on the 22d but her death Is attributed to
bronchitis Maria Antonio Benin Vpno need
nled
69 also died on the 22d having been ailing
all of the voyage lIar death is I not
opposed to have been caused by cholera
But In six cases four of them among the pas
sengers and two among thojorew the cause ot
death unmistakably was cholera Health Ofll
eor Hmlth was unreservedly or this opinion
after learning of the history of the oases from
the ships doctor Ho said tho symptoms woro
erratic no one case combining all of the
marked signs of tho disease Each how
ever presented ono or more of the peculiar
symptoms of the Asiatic cholera and death In
all the Instances was such as distinguishes

noili but said that two of them had passed the
orUlo of the disease and would recover
The Alesla dropped down Into tbo lower
bay as soon aa the Health Officer left hor and
was anchored close to the west bank as much
M possible out of the way of shipping Dr
William M Smith telegraphed the nows of tho
Quarantine of the Infected ship to her agents

Tho most disgusted man that tho Quarantine
ofllcors found aboard tho ship was Pilot Pat
terson Ho was also not far from being tho
most frightened His state of mind wan not
unlike that of thin boys whoso salute to Hoard
inn Doctor Umlth was that officials first Intimation
mation of trouble aboard
Im not going to stay aboard this ship
was the form that the pilots announcement
took though of course ho know perfectly well
porCoct
before being told that ho would get Into
trouble It ho wont away without permission
Hut on looking Into tho matter tho Chief
Health Officer eased up on him as his deputy
would not have taken the responsibility to do
The fact that Patterson had kept on dock and
almost 1 ships length away from tho passen
gers was hIs salvation and ho was allowed to
go ashore after 1 thorough fumigation
Dr Hmlth nays that thoro is I not tho slightest
cause for any alarm in Now York over the ar
rival of tho cholera I Is no moro to hn feared
when at Quarantine than when It Is in Italy
as far as the city Is concerned HIs resources
nro sufficient to cope with tho emergency The
disease can bo controlled lS omorleooy 01 it Is
known where it Is and he is thoroughly
conlldont that none of It can lot lioro
without his knowing of I Tho closeness
of his watch upon tho progress nf the
plague Is shown by prOICf that he
his telegraphic advices ot tho progress of the
cholera in Italy later than nrOlrcss lato of the
Aloslas bill of health lie Bays that In Messina
It Is steadily increasing and I violently epi
demic The grave diggers recently refused to
continue tholr greatly augmented labors and
they woro compelled by force to resume work
after half a days loss of tlmo The deaths
roach twenty or thirty a day and tim seizures
are four or five times more numerous
Tho India from Naples Aug 30 arrived yes
terday and Dr Banborn spent nearly two
hours In her examination Ho was so long
aboard that It began to bo feared that ho to I
hadJound sickness lint It was only that ho
was exorcising the usual cam in thu matter nf
the bacirtiKo and people from Infected parts of
Italy No eases of sickness had occurred on
tho long voyage and with the fumigation 01
tholr effects hor passengers wore allowed to
proceed to CaMlo Gardon

munication between this und tIm Mediterranean
I odlr
reuben ports especially In the matter nf carry
Inc Italian emigrants It has lately hart a great
deal nf bad luck Tile fact that one of their
btoamors was run down on the other sldo early
la April by an ironclad was the means of
crowding 1100 passopcerri or thoso of two ships
into the Kcotla Tho latter vessel ran ashore011

with considerable hardship to roach New York
ovorland The Hcotla wnn almost a total

a coal carrier for a low thousand dollars
KurKOonGenorul Hamilton of tho Marina
Hospital service and Dr Ktener unlto In say
ing that the Now York Quarantine authorltloa
hno simply announced tho nqthorltss
cholera without muting any cull for assistance
upon the general Government and aro doubt
less as they seem to think themselves fully
able to grapple successfully with tho uly
dos of the situation Dr Hamilton
clO Ilulton Humlon says that
tho urosonco of an infected ship in the
port of Now York need not give any
occasion for alarm The experiences of tho
past the doctor said aro not likely to be re
poated because the value of precautionary
measures are now appreciated and their les
sons too well understood by health ndlaors
throughout tho country for thorn to neglect to
take any of the precautions necessary ou nn

Such stormsappoar to have become regular
visitors to this coast Just about a yoar and I
day had passed slnoo tho Chubasco of 1S80
and tho remainder of tho funds collected for
the relief of tho sufferers by that storm was
being distributed when threatening signs of
tho approach ot another of those awful visit
ors woro noted The telegraph several daya
ago gavo notice of a hnrrlcano southwest of
Havana and moving this way and for two or
throe days tho weather Indications showed the I
approach of u storm Though tho barometer
and tho tide lu the Quit usually give warning
of tho corning of bad weather this storm gave
no such notice ot Its Immediate approach
At 9 oclock Tuesday evening tho northor
that had been blowing for several days In
creased In fierceness with heavy gusts of rain
and In a short time n hurricane was on tho
towns In its full force tho wind reaching In I
tho height of the storm I velocity of eovonty
eight miles an hour All night lone I contin

Morning dawned on 1 Mono of desolation
Water filled tho n treats through which tho
roaring north wind drove thq rain like great
volleys of small shot The fallen trues ruins
shot Ilten

merged in water rendered passage difficult
and at limes dangerous
At 21 > tme M tIc wind lulled and there was
almost 1 dead calm until 4XP i M whon tho
wind came from the south This shows that
tho vortex of tho hurricane as was tho case lu
1880 and 18HG pawed directly ovor this section
About 0 P M the wind again became violent
coming this tIme from the south and contin
ued until this morning when tho hurricane
had ceased Tho duration ot tho storm wan
thirtylive hours The wind was front Ohio

The wind while It registered greater velocity
than that of the hurricane ot last year did not
appear to havo as much force during tho sud
den gusts The diameter of tho storm was
much greater and Us duration was longer than
either that of 1086 or that of 1880 The force
was greater than that of tho blow of the former
yoar but not so great as that of the ono of 1SSO
The fact that tho bulk of tho people were bet
tor prepared for Us coming and that tho
weaker buildings had bon swept away by the
storm of last year wns the only reason for Its
not being more destructive
The damage In tho country outside of the
two cities In incalculable Countless bead of

established In tho public mind that Dixon
Cowlui Ohio uncle of Lllllti Hoylo the girl who
was murdered In Webster and In whoso houso
ibo boarded likely to find himself n very
bad Rcinpe at leant as the ronult of his talking
His statements woro hooked upon with sus
picion before Ohio girl disappeared Now they
are applied with moro force and ho Is denying
somo of thorn lOuse Fanny Vhoolw a friend
of tho murdered girl says On Sunday Aug
231 watt Invited to tnko lunch with Illllo and
aftor tho meal wo strolled down tbo street
During this walk wo mot u young woman who
somo tlmo pravloitnly It in said had been
unfortunate Illllo then declared with no
tloonblo emphasis tlmt If It was ovor her fate
to be betrayed by a man itho would oblige him
to stand up and acknowledge tho facts Bbo
was very determined and bar manner aroused
a suspicion In my mind that something was
troubling her Finally she said that site was
afraid sho must move I do not she added
think It fate to stay thoro any longer My
undo Is a very harsh aud unreasonable man
when Intoxicated and besides there Is no
look on my chamber door
Tbo second day after Llllles disappearance
Mrs Wheeler FannyH mother had a conver

pionont Mr Cowlo told a lone story regard

then ho shut the door and ollthlilldlllLaud
bail taken ills hat to wear out of doors
ho having warned hor that her toilet was not
BiiQIcIont for tho night air That In thin last ho
over saw of bur When questioned by Mrs
Wheeler bo wild ho thought that by use of a
chloroform bag Jllllo could have boon taken
from thooiitbulltliniwithout alarming ilily one
in tho house or any pabburHby He talked at
considerable length about the OtlRi with which
lie claimed to be totally unfamllfur Cowlo
Iritly denies all this now Ho Is also quoted as
having said when the ilvoi was being drained
for tho body of the girl before tho murder was
I discovered Its uu ue looking there you
wont llnd hers
An extended examination of the murdered
girls effects falls to reveal any letter In which
her condition Is mentioned although n big
batch letters from young uontlemon friends
was found The report IK current among
Webster people that some ono who bad uccess
to tho room has wended out her conospond
once nnd Cowlo again suffers in reputation by
this story atl ho had aecoss to tho room The
friend on whom Cowlo relies tocorroborata his
story of that eventful night bus boon hunted
up and says that they slept together in Cohs
mom Ho denies hut Cowla hold a conversation I
with any one before entering the houso that
nIght hut adds that after they had boon in bed
a few minutes CowJu said to him Do you hoar I
that 1 and he hoard Homo ono exclaim us
though trying to resist tIme advances of unot bur
party lie says It scorned to him to have been
a tttlflod cry of alarm and that u few minutes
later tho nolsu of u carriage being driven rap
idly through tho strootn wns heard Although
this story seams to clear Cowlo ho Is regatded
with n great deal of suspicion
Mrs Taylor thn woman for whom tho girl
worked says Theio was ono thing which I
have never told that came under my obuerva
thou some time before Lllllu disappeared I
liecnmo Impressed strongly with tile Idea that
Simubddy was watching for her around the

the Broadway Surface llullroad of which tho
following Is a synoisli
In time case of the people upon thin notion ot
the Attorney General against John OBrien
receiver of the Broadway Surface Itnllrond
Company and others the General Term af
firms tho judgment of the trial court without
prejudice to the attorney bringing such action
as ho may bo advised to test the validity of
limo BOcnllod traffic contracts
Uy Ohio decision It Is hold that the not of IBid
vhleh annulled time charter of time Uroadwity
Hurfaco llallroad Company N constitutional
but Its effect was only to kill time company not
to destroy Its estate Tho property of the com
pany of which tho franchise to operate the
railroad on Itroadway was part passed upon
thin death of hue company llrst to Its directors
and afterward to thu receiver charged how
ovor with nil the mortgages and con
tracts which the company lawfully created
Tho Court holds that the franchise to operate
thin railroad wan property because by the
Constitution of 187o It wns made lImo subject
of sale by tho city and of purchase by the
company and thin tenure upon which tim
Ilioadway Hurfniii Company held It was not
simply for time life of thin company but of
mien duration an would ho adequate to give
full force to Ohio contract of purchase and
Halo That since by tho statutes it could bo
mortgaged the law authorizing contracts and
mortgages Imparted such tenure us would bo
unequal to uphold both contracts and mort
gages The mortgages upon the railroad and
iranehiboa to operate It were not alTootnd by
the death of tilt company With respect to tIme
traffic contracts they ware not In this action
chulloncod by any patty who hud shown
any right to Interfere with them
With respect to tho wlndtncup act of
IHSfi so mtioh 0th It as attempts to close tIle ear
of thin court to any evidence except Huch ns the
receiver may penult to ha hoard and directs In
advance the sort judgment the court should
thereupon render Is unconstitutional as
hoeing a perversion of the duo process ot law
which the Constitution auarantcos to all suit
ors anti hence the provision for Ohio adjust
ment of claims before Ohio receiver IB void
Thin prevailing opinion Is written by Juntlco 1
Landon Presiding Justice Learned writes an
opinion to the effect that tim repealing net ot
1880 whereby the Broadway Surface liallroad
Company was declared annulled and Itschar
ter repealed in unconstitutional and void also
that the nnpolntment of the receiver without
notice to the company or Its directors was void
Hu concurred however in tho affirmance of
the judgment
