BERLIN Aug 2In splto of tho spread ot
eholora In Germany tho panle for which tho
ensatlon mongers have looked ongorly for
the last week has failed to opponr One reason
I lor this la 1 tho painstaking earo of the munlcl
11 1 authorities to suppress news concerning
the progress of tho disease Anothor is the
confidence of tho moro Intelligent ells In tho
effectiveness of the minute precautions ob
served by the sanitary official In all cities
herI tho disease has shown Itself
Even in Hamburg whoro tho disease Is nt
It wore there has been no panic and tho re
ports of terror and flight aro mostly tho notion
of the Paris newspapers Tho streets aro not
dorfertod and the shops and exchanges hnvo
not been depopulated In fact everybody has
behnvnd with a calmness which tho virulence
and prevalence of tho disease hardly warrant
As soon as tho municipal Authorities broke
their silence and admitted that choler was
already numbering Its victims by the score
I the local press lor a day or two published
er ply exaggerated accounts of the spread of
the plague Tho reports woro received with
doubt When they wero found to be halt true
molt pt the wealthy Idlers all the tourists
and most ot aristocracy left the cltr The
Brett majority of merchants shopkeepers And
conspicuous publlo men however remained
In the city most of them because they appre
hended no considerable danger for themselves
Ai and their families other to set examples to
the rest of the people
I Berlin the people seem hardly to realize
that the disease is among them Probably not
a hundred persons have left the city
lerons clr on ac
count ol the threatened danger and the city
officials are trying as did their colleagues In
Hamburg to conceal the fact that Asiatic
cholera Is i threatening tho wholo population
This policy I persisted In will Induco the
same general mistrust as In Hamburg The
Emperor became convinced today that
mperr oODlnced sev
I eral l cases of l tho worst typo had boon found
ali lib is said to have expressed his intention
of IS8ulni nn order should more cases bo re
ported that tho city Government must Fend
out bulletins twice dally concerning thn prog
ress of the disease Ho foots that Berlin as
ono of the cleanest and bestdrained cities
q of Europe has little to fear from tho cholera
I the people bo properly warned and Instruct
o how to fight It Ono of the duties of tho
I sanitary authorities coxt week therefore will
be to have brought to the notice of every i
ii householder the best approved measures for
disinfection of houses and treatment of pa
14 tients before medical help can bo summoned
ij Upon tho householders then will rest the re
V sponsibility of communicating the measures
to their families and tenants The suggestion
that prayers for the abatement of tho disease
be ordered officially throughout Prussia has
boen vetoed by tho Emperor
Since this morning no fresh cases have been
reported In this city and thero seems to bo
every probability that tho existing cases will
remain Isolated Nevertheless the heavy stream I
1 t of travel between flits city and Hamburg Is a
r source of danger So far today the railway
trains have brought In nome 300 passengers
from Hamburg of them citizens
some citzens fleeing
from the stricken city but most ot them non
residents Four men who arrived from Ham
burg on an express last night complained bit
terly ot the sanitary measures taken by the
authorities at Hamburg as Inefficient and In
effective Tho men ear that they will make
representations to the Home Office In
ti order that the imperial Government
j may bo led to interfere They say that the
health officials did not report the first case of
Asiatic cholera to the Imperial Government
until four days after it had been brought to
their note I I not probable however that
the Imperial Government will notice tho
w1 notce ap
peal for help as the Hamburg authorities are
understood to be acting with all possible
actnl al en
ergy This afternoon cases of cholera are re
ported from many cities In tho empire but all
have been isolated promptly and there is
nothing to IndIcate that tho disease will be
1 come prevalent in any town except Hamburg
Tho nbsonoe of apprehension of tho cholera
has loft Berlin editors free to continue with
a out their discussion of tha com
I ing Arm bill and the Emperors attitude to
ward It On Thursday evening the Aafionol
eitano ROT prominence to a paragraph say
ing that the general tenor of tho now bill hud
been determined although it was still nn open
question whether It would bo laid boforo tho
Reichstag at Us next session or in ItilU or
1801 Tho ilnnl decision will bo postponed I
tho National Ztilnng said until after the reas I
sembling ot tie Prussian Cabinet Ministers I
who are now on tholrvncatlons The now la I
the editor addod would not embody explicitly
the principle ot the twoyoar term of service
but would nevertheless reduce materially for
L thq Infantry the obligatory period of service
I I with the colors Tho annual number ot re
cruits moreover would be considerably In
creased and thus the standing army would be
enlarged Those chances had been planned
to so effect the strength ot the army that the
reduction ot tho service time would be fully
eounterbalnocll by the Increase in tho num
ber of troops
Tho execution of this plan would depend
doubtless upon financial considerations as it
would necessitate additional appropriations
In the military budget The military authori
ties direct special attention to the fact that
the bills main object Is to strengthen tho sor
Tlce by Infusing younger blood into the first
fighting line and maintaining the quality
while tho of the
Increasing quantity troops
On Friday tho AortMtuttrht AUgemelne Ztitung
p confirmed tho truth of tho Xalionali state
ment adding that tho Prussian Landtag prob
ably will be convoked during tho autumn so
thut it may have time to study and discuss
florr MlQuela proposed financial be
r t l lore public attention shall be diverted to tho
l military bills
Both of the Indicated declarations may bo
regarded a authoritative They explain the
Contradictory reports of Emperor Williams
g speech at the Frunz loriof banquet anti place
at rest the rldlculou reiioita of the French
dallies that the Gorman Government contem
plated Increasing the standing army to 050000
or 700 men As regards the most pro
pitious time for bringing forward the new bill
general opinion favors tho Parliamentary ses
sion of 1B03 or of 1804 In the latter year tha
Beptennate act by which Dlsmurck got the
army away from tho Itclchstags control for
I seven year will expire and the financial
II 1 questions involved In the new organization
can bo considered moro advantageously
According t the existing law the peace
strength of tho army Is fixed at 1 per cent ol
thu empires population The military bud
gets however never havo provided sufficient
money for the enrollment of tho full 1 per
cent and the actual peace force under the
Heptennato has remained considerably below
tho force contemplated by Prince Bismarck
and the members of his regime1 This state ol
affairs has given rise to several highly unsat
isfactory features of the ruetent organization
Muny of thu recruits Instead of joining tho
insular ctinllns nrmy had to n place lu tlio
special reserve known n the Ersatzrcaerve I
and A certain percentage of the army wns
drafted nt the end of the second years service
Into another reserve known as the Dleposl
Tho new army bill will reduce the Ersatz
reserve and Increase greatly the DI oslloD
Urlnubor thus practlrallr introducing tho
twoycnr term while recognizing only the
throeyenr term Emperor William believes
that this Innovation will leave tho efficiency of
tho army as a whole unchanged while render
Ing It more homogenous nnd relieving the
burden upon the younger generation of Gor
man men
Admission to tho Ersntzronervo has long
been sought ns n special privilege and many
abuses have crept Into tho recruiting service
In consequence Those nbusei have rested
most heavily on the rural districts Recruits
are generally too numerous In the cities and
too scarce In the country no while city young
mon wore securing all the benefits of the Kr
pntzrcsorve a peasants sons who wore needed
at home to help support tho famIly have been
obliged to hour tho full burden of tho service
In the standing army According to the now
plan only those who lt the end of two years
show insufficient military knowledge will bn
compelled to servo tho full term the rest will
be drafted into the ranks of the Dispositions
lJrlMf bet
Jtiom n political point of view tho new hill Is
regarded as a masterpiece Granting practi
cally the tworcnr term It pleases tho people
nt largo reserving for the Government the
right to tho threerear term ns n guarantee
for the officienc of tho army It satisfies tlio
military authorities Tho opposition to tie
bill Is bollovod to have boon minimized among
Deputies to tho Itelchvtag As usual how
ever tho Radicals and radical LlboraU want
to eat tholr cake and at the same time have
It They say that they cannot see clearly the
advantages of a scheme which by increasing
the number of recruits will also increase
taxes Count Caprlvis friends fully approve
of tho plan and eventually the uncompromis
ing opposition probably will be limited to tho
ranks of the Independents Frolftnnlgo and
tho Soctnl Democrats who oppose everything
On Sept 4 1tuporor William will start for
Gothenburg whore ho will meet King Oscar
The two monarchs will go out for throe days
elk hunting after which Emperor William will
proceed to the manoeuvres in South Germany
and Alsace unless cholera should render a
postponement of the manoeuvres advisable
At Potsdam court life has been very quiet
during tho lust weok on account of the ap
proaching accouchement of tho impress
which is now but a few days off Tho few fes
tivities still allowed are confined to u small
circle of the Empresss most intimate friends
Emperor William has ordered that an in
quiry be mado Into the conduct of 1 sergeant
accused of abusing men under his command
in the recent manoeuvres near Berlin TOo
sergeant commanded a detachment of thirty
foot soldiers ot tho guards to remove their
shoes and march barefoot along the blistering
highway The men obeyed After thoy had
passed through n village two Indignant old I
men drove back over the line of march and In
formed several commissioned officers of the
affair One of the officers galloped ahead I
overtook the barefoot company and shouted
t the sergeant
How dare you make his Majestys soldiers
go barefoot 7
He then ordered the arrest of tho sergeant
and commanded the soldiers to put on their
shoos The sergeant Is awaiting in Berlin the
court martial I
Several crack cyclists have arranged to start i

Anton Potzel aged 40 an Austrian by birth
and a tailor by trade said that he had soiled
from Hamburg In one of the Gorman steamers
on July 23 He was troubled only by seasick

good health after landing until about
hllh alor Inndlnl untl noon
yesterday Potzel could not tell whoro ho hnd

a tailor at 101 Greenwich stroet
Ills symptoms would have boon thought
little of under ordinary circumstances hut
combined with his statomont that ho had re
cently arrived from Hamburg thoy woro re
cnrdod by Dr Kussull HulUmy tho receiving
surgeon as worth of more than ordinary
attention Accordingly ho had the patient Iso
lated in the tent used for those having con
tagious complaints where Dr Washburn sub
sequently examined him Dr Washburn
thought thero was nothing suspicious about
the case except the fact that Potzol was com
paratively fresh from a cholera centre but he
left tho patient in tho tent and gave orders If
any suspicious symptoms developed to have
the case reported at onco to the Health De
Dr Washburn was perhaps led to take a
conservative view of tho case by his experi
ence with a patient on Saturday night This
patient was Simon Blddulph a steel worker
from Baltimore who had gone t Gouvernour
Hospital for treatment When his symptoms
became known they wero deemed so suspi
cious that he was at once taken to Bollovuo In
an ambulance Thero It was considered best
to got the opinion ot an export and Dr Dll
llnglmm of the Board of Health was sum
moned to make a diagnosis Ho pronounced
the case ono of ordinary summer complaint
and tho Dellovuo doctors resolved not to send
for 1 Health Board export again unless they
were sure of the symptoms
Tailor Cohen said last night that Potzel
came to him four days ago and said that he
had been out of work for four weeks and had
pawned everything he could for money to live
on Cohen gave him work and yesterday
morning paid him oft Cohen thought that
Potzel had lodged at either t I or 7 Delancey
street No one in those houses each ot which
harbors several families remembers Iotzel

he may have been at one of the houses a day

Tho most Important conference yet held by
the authorities of this city regarding the Im
pending approach of cholera to New York took
placo Yesterday afternoon In Health Officer
Jenkinss office at Quarantine It Is now
believed that cholera Is surely drawing nearer
to Now York and that It Is only question ot
a few weeks perhaps a few days when it will
bent the gates of the city
Those at the conference wore Mayor Grant
President Charles G Wilson of the Health
Board Dr Jenkins Dr Charles F Roberts
Chief Inspector of tho Bureau of Contagious
Ulnonses Quarantine Commissioner Allen
President of the Polico Hoard J J Martin
and Dr Henry L Bleneufeldavlio is In charge
of Hoffman and Swinburne islands I was
understood that among other subjects dls
cussed was tho inspection of Hoffman and
Swinburne islands with view to mako the
appliances for the care und disinfection of pa
tients ns effective us possible before tho ar
rival of cholera
Lato on Saturday night President Martin
telephoned to Quarantine Commissioner Al

the ordinary routine was waived for the
oldtnnry routno WIIYod oc
casion and the permission was given Presi
dent Martin and tho rest of the putty arrived a
little utter 2 oclock The conference lasted
about thrcoquartars of an hour and then
tho party accompanied by Dr Jenkins started
for tho Quarantine boat State of Now York
which lay at the little dock Before they wont
on board they wore asked by a SUN roportor
what they had decided upon ut the conference
All hastened to suy that it had only been an
informal discussion and that thoy believed
that everything ponslblo WHS being done to
ward off the acoutce They admitted how
ever that the matters dltcussed wore of vital
IDIIorllucel vlnl
I think said Mayor Grunt thattoo much
precaution cannot be taken As nxoHlnlo
Quarantine Commissioner und as Mayor of the
city I foci It to be I my duty to make myself ac
quainted with all tho details ot tho plans by
which the best system of quarantine bo
in Hint nl nod Under the very cillcient direc

U I being dODO possible to 1 Insure the safety of
the city Wo will try It possible t brine tho
Quarantine system to iieifoitlon
1roHldont Wilson of the Health Board said
ho was a strong believer in Immlgrutlan being
stopped on all lines which piled etween New
York and InfoctcddlstrlctH there was tho
slightest diinuor from cholera Ho believed l
that tho greatest risk lay in cholera couitng
from othur ports wliore tho quarantine aye I
tem was not in rigid as In Sew York
Immigration could bo flopped lie said
by making the Quarantine regulations so
severe that Ills companies would be forced to
stop lu any case the companies would stop
of their ol accord I believe If there was a
general feeling expressed In that direction
As to compelling the companion through their
representatives here cODlnnloR sending Immi
grants to this country wo could not tIn that
except by special act ot Congress und In fact I
do not know that Congress would have any
powarto pass such an act Tho health oillcer
IioWHver has power to mako the regulations
HO stringent that the companies In their own
Interests would be forced to discontinue send
lag Immigrants lie could detain vessels us

Mr Wilson told thin reporter that he had not
made up his mind what to do regarding using
Hikers Island for 1 hospital In case cholera
should appear Ho would consider the matter
very carefully ho said tor
Health OrXcer Jenkins said he would con
tlnuo tInt quarantine regulations UK present

Even If cholora does not como to this coon
try soon hoi said it will be necessary to

but ho telegraphed his regrets The service
was opened with prayer by the Itov Dr Me
Cosh exPresident of Princeton University
Tho subject of Secretary Fosters address was
announced as Holglon in Economy In the
course ot his talk he said It is popularly
supposed that the Treasury Department looks
after only the finances of the country but as
a matter of fact it looks after many other Im
portant matters One of the most difficult
duties of my department Is the proper admin
istration of the Immigration laws It Is hard
to determine absolutely whether a man is
brought her under contract or is likely to be
come 1 public charge A young man without
a cent In his pocket but strong of heart and
limb Is often less likely to become a pauper
than tIn weakly man with his pockets full ot
money One of tho most Important duties of
that Treasury Department ut this time
lrelsurr It thll tmo Is to
curator marina hospitals at all ports of entry
to this country My only regret Is that tho
general Government does not nave more
complete control of all these avenues for the
introduction to the country of cholera and
other infectious diseases Iho local control
of these quarantine stations is n relic of the
old Htato s rights Idea However we have
undertaken vigorous measures for the exclu
sion of foreign rags and imbSfnsern from in
fected ports ral the full I power and intelli
gence of the Treasury service will be exerted
for tho safety ot tho country
A reference to Mr Blame I name was loudly
lon llussoy followed with a short address
He said that all opposition to law whether b

must be crushed just as surely and us
promptly as was tho rebellion of the Southern

is KnclnndFesrs that It Will be Hard to
Kop the Plague Out or London
DrRL Aug 28At a conference of tho
Ministry of the Interior yesterday It was de
cided to publish dally tho number of cases of
cholera reported throughout Germany This
fact became known this evening and will be
made public odlclnlly tomorrow
The Ministry of the Interior took this action
at tho suggestion of tho Emperor who Le
haves that the plague can bb fought most ad
vantageously I the people understand thin ex
act nature of tho peril to which they are ox
posed In Berlin especially such a course Is
carded ns advisable because a panic can be
averted by tho publication of nil tho facts
The city was never cleaner or healthier and
with proper preventive measures it prob
ably can be kept conipitratioly Iroo from the
Infection For the last thirtysix hours no
froth cases have been discovered A general
order will ho given nut 10 replace all general
order t railway oRlelnU In tho mittor of dli

llcports from Hamburg show that the uneasiness
easiness In that city Is Increasing There 1ms
boon no panic as yet and up to this afternoon
comparatively few citizens had left with their
families TIde tvonID however I Is reported
that an express trnlnhns arrived with 400 per
sons from Hamburg The former policy of the
Hamburg authorities in suppressing the news
concerning the disease is to a largo extent It
is said responsible for this exodus The
Inll peo
ple place little confidence in tho reports
now given out believing that the number
ot victims Is purposely misrepresented
and that tho mortality Is Increasing
rapidly In tho absence of n record which
thin people can trust exaggerated reports
have been circulated since last
ciroulltod evening and
many who had resolved to stay at homo have
suddenly moved out with their families The
persons arriving this evening suy thorn itt also
general suspicion that the sanitary authori
ties are inefficient although such an authori
ty I Pro I Koch who was ID Hamburg several
days approved 01 the measures taken by them
to stay the progress of the disease
From other parts ot Gormany reports of Iso
lated cases of cholera or cholerine have been
received today but titers is apparently no in
dication ot a general spreading of the disease
A regiment at Mctzls suffering from cholerine
The principal cause of apprehension now Is
that n panic may develop in Hamburg and
tho 1 partial scattering of the citys population
to other parts of Germany may produce In
fection In districts hitherto untouched
HvMHuno Aug 28The number of fresh
cases of cholera on Saturday was 4UH Ibo
number of deaths 1U7 Incomplete retmns
tor today show that there are at lowest r > UO >
fresh cases Tho number of deaths hits not
yet been ascertained Thl mortality from
cholera has raised tho number of funerals
duly from un average of 8 to ULO The city
Is not yetpunlostrlckon but the presence of
the IIIOKUO is I apparent everywhere The
streets today have been deserted for the first
time since tho disease became prevalent The
usual Sunday excursions were abandoned No
excursion trains were run and the steamers
which usually take out parties lay Idle at the
docks Theatres circuses and music halts
were empty hul9
Most merchants and shopkeepers still stick
to their business but tomorrow or Tuesday
may see trade practically suspended and the
men who constitute the bulnes world hero
leaving with their families for other parts of
Germany The persons of wealth and no reg
ular occupation lmo gone already to Rostock
Imheil Flanstunr and ether seaside resorts
Dissatisfaction with the measures adopted by
the sanitary authorities and with their policy
of trying to hold back the worst nows Is
UrKely responsible for the growing unrest
which may culminate almost at any hour in a
panic Iho sale of fruit In thu city has b
come a dcid branch of trade Dealers who
hindlo southern fruits find their stocks prac
tically n total 10s8
The funerals which take plnco constantly are
conducted wlthoutthe usual ostentation Not
moro than two or throe carriages follow a
hearse and In many cases the body taken to
the crave without a friend or relative to
accompany It The services are limited to a
prayer or at most to a prayer and hymn This
simplicity of ceremony Is the result of the re
peated warnings of the sanitary authorities
and private physicians
