In tbe office of Lawson Bandford Becrotary of
the Continental shipping companies 1

gravity of the situation All of them admitted
the force of his arguments but It Is said that
ome of tho agonts did so with apparent un
After the conference of the
some representa
tives of tho companies were asked what they
thought of the order
I I do not propose to say anything said O
Bchwab of the North Gorman Lloyd Company
Dr Jenkins has full authority and I will not
undertake to criticise his orders
I think It Is a little harsh on the whole
Bald R J Cortls ot tho Hamburg American
Packet Company Four of our steamers have
already gone through and tliero have been no
signs of sickness
Here the Health Omcer broke in and said I
havn no Intention of taking any risks Mr

Mr Crts then said his company was pro
pared to go any length to cooperate In ward
Ing off 10 danger und Dr Jenkins said ho
had no doubt of I There was some grum
bling among the other agutits but they would
say nothing to tho reporters
Dr J nufls said afterward that though the
regulation entailed a loss on the companies
they assured him that they wore willing to do
anything to avoid the risk ot bringing cholera

not now and I beliuvo < will act he con
tinued I would be vvnll I orders wore Is I
ued to tho other seaboard orlers thn State
and along the lakes to maku the quarantine
as rigid us It is in New York No ono ran tell
how cholera may Ilnd Its way into this city

hospital for the cholera patients should any of
them como to New York Ho all It was a
matter for the Health Hoard to attend to In
ease it came by sea those infected by the dls I
aase might be kept In u hospital ship ur bout
to Swlnburno Island
t As to the EmIgrant Hospital ho con
tinued it Is out ot the question as It is being
used as a hospital for moan patients I un
derstand I There is I the hospital ship Samuel
D Carleton which would hold from V thO to HOO
patients 1 havo no doubt tho Hoard of Health
will make suitable provision fur New York

WASHINGToN Aug 20 Treasury officials no
loncer try to conceal their fears that cholera
may be introduced into this country nt any
moment Acting Secretary Spauldlne ad
mitted as much today after receiving a cable
gram from Hamburg via tho Department of
State to the effect that the disease is still on
tho Increase Ills anxiety was apparent when
ho read the cable mm In Tu > HUN from the
Iniected districts
I is possible said he that cholera may
make its way Into this country in Plo of
every effort we aro maMng to prevent It Tho
Government officials will exercise tho utmost
> vIgilance far as their jurisdiction extends
but the local and municipal authorities also
have an Important duty to perform Tho local
authorities in Now York and In other cities
where Immigrants aro landed shoild at onco
proceed to clean up the city and wipeoutthoo
resting places cholera would frt seek if it
once obtained admission to our shores I
seems as if the dread disease were making di
rect for this country and it becomes a matter
of selfproserntlon for us to remove every
pretext for it to linger with us should it come
as an unbidden guest
BurgeonGeneral Wyman was an early caller
at tho Treasury Department and ho had n
Ions and earnest convocation with Mr
Bpauldlne on tho subject The doctor said
the situation is becoming more ierious as the
disease spreads Ho had hoped that todavs
reports from abroad would show 1 decrease In

Senator Hlscock of New York was one
of the vIsitors nt the Treasury Do
iiartment today Ho called to see Actinic
Secretary Hpaufdlng with reference to the
cholera Dr Wyman was present at the same
time and the precautions taken by the Gov
ernment were fully explained to the h nator
and he appeared be satlsllod that theTreas
ury ofllclals aro doing everything In their
power to keep the disease from Icing halt o

there Is great anxiety felt In Nw i ork on the
subject and he assured Mr Kpuuldlnc that
the local authorities are cheerfully cooperating

operating with the Cioverriment ofllcers In
the enforcement of tho immigration laws and

There appears to ho some confusion In tho
minds nt many people as to whether the
Irreldent has the pnrei to issue a proclama
tion prohibiting Immigration Acting Becre
ton Mpauldlng sOfa that the law on the nub
joct of immigration In perfectly clear I
provides for tho expulsion of aliens from the
united State In accordance with certain
regulations provided for the act uf March 11
IMll the 1reildent has no authority to say t
a friendly nation lou shall not send your
ships to our port but Congress has the
power to pass absolute exclusion acts
or It has the power to confer upon the
PresIdent authority to prohibit Immigration
whenever the country Is threatened with a
bcourgo 1 th absence of au authority on I
the part of tho resident to IRSUO I a proclama
tion the Government officials have wide dis
cretion In framing regulations to be observed
by those seeking cItIzenshIp In tho present
Instanco tln steamship companies havo prom
lied I that they will tako every precaution to
present passengers suspected of coming
pISOrnl1r comlpl
from Infected districts from < taking pAb

disease develops before the shin reaches tho
Unlteil Mtatcs hon 1 the State quarantine all I
thoiltlns t hno to pass upon tho ship I and Its i
contents and even If tho patcongers got I
through the linn at the quarantine station
they are apt to bo stopped by the inspectors
at bills Island Thus It will be seen that I
the Immigrant has to run tho gauntlet
on tho other ride of the water and bo
subjected to two examinations on this side
before he I permitted to land on our shores
I tho regulations aro rigidly enforced It Is
dlffipiilt for diseased poraontt to pace this In
spectors Negligence Imposition and deceit

may be Introduced hut It Is not to be pre
sumed for an Instant that the health authori
ties will relax their energies until all trace ot
the disease is I wiped out
lth a lovv to gleaning further information
on the subject a reporter of TilE Huv called
1101 V D Owen hut Superintendent ot Im
migration who was appointed under this last
revision ot the Immigration act Mr Owen
has been absent rom thu I city on his vacation
hut rwturund to duty In view of tho pending
dinicultv With rosect to tho attempt at tho
last session ot Congress to further revise tho
Immigration act Mr Owen xntd that at It list
twenty dllTwrout bills were introduced in tho
HOUKO and henMo and tIm principal feature
of nil ot them was to provide for consular In

ot whom took I I very dncp Interest In I t he sub

Immigration at Now ork Dr Kemsto who
was one of the medical experts in the Uul
teau trial Sir 1owderh a brother of the
V orklngman friend Mr Croisot St tll

torious by coming back from Europe as an Im
migrant I CommIssion wait sent 10 Europe
to make a thorough Investigation the Immi
gration question and Its momborsdld not rec
ommend any changes in the present laws
Alter duo consideration It was decided that
the Consular Inspection system could not be
put In operation successfully so the United
states unornment has entered Into an agree
ment with the steamship companion inter
ested and they as 1 mater of selfprosarva
ton see that tho Inspections are faithfully
mado There Is an impression In urlous
quarters that the steamship companies do not
caro for tim health of their passengers 10 long
ns they can secure tholr rare Mr
Owen says such an Idea Is not well founded
for the steamship companies fear quarantine
as it means 1 loss of about 3QOO 1 diu while
they are tied up rIte United Stxtos lovern
melt virtually says to the steamship com
panies You derive tho profit from Immigra
tion so you hilly have an Inspection system of
jour own hue steamship companies aro
waking up to the fact that it Is important for
them to 10 I particular In making their inspec
tions and thofo who have mudo a personal In
vestigation of the subject approve the system

5 Tho threatened invasion of Asiatic cholera
I the gravest and most serious question be
fore the notion today aid Dr K A Bayre t
a BUN reporter yesterday
5 Does the gravity ol the situation sugceat
prohibition of immigratIon I was asked
Certainly absolute prohibition unUss
perfect and continental qunrantlno can be as
sured Hut I must bo permitted to etplaln
what I mean by quarantine added Dr Hayro
5 for I went through I rather unpleasant ex
perience In this mater in 1BC5 through not
being understood
When the reporter called on Dr Rayre at his
ntth avenue residence he found him at work
on a magazine article on the subject of the
intervIew Itoforrinc to a scrap book of news
paper clippings rnd a report made by him as
Resident Ihvelclan of tho city of New York
he continued I seems hardly credible but
I was denounced by our Academy of Medl
cilia by tho Sanitary lommlssloners by doc
tors and nowspnpors lathis and many other
cities In 18U3 and 18bU because I declared
cholera portable and contagious I Insisted
upon not only the Inspection and fumigation
of all passengers and baggage from infected
portsbut upon their isolation pick suspected
and well and see here is a paper calling me a
rovlv er ot the methods of tho dark aces The
world agrees with me now and I only I refer to
these bygones to emphaslre If I can the need
ot the Government taking bold measures no
matter I there are those who object and per
haps rovllo So quarantine must apply to
every arrival from Infected ports and to every
port on tills continent and be equally ofllolent
at every point or else immigration should be
prohlhle can we should make Immediate ar
rangements with Canada to adort a conoral
Plan of strict quarantine I we cannot we
should prohibit all Immigration Irohibit It
not only at every iKirt but by patrol of every
mile of our Canadian and Mexic in borders
That cholera follows the line of r > umm rce
and travel U so well understood now that you
should ilnd no difference of opinion us to this
nllb ltv for which I now contend in 1W > It
was not understood and when I hurried to
tNahingtnn to nnl I iiuarantlne station
from the Government I had ditlleult in Rot
till Senator Chandler to call tIm Commerce
Commlttcn together even to listen to me I
recolved the Unvernnients consent to use n
portion of Sandy Hook below the fort for our
talon but the oYernOr and IcKMaturn of
Niw Jersey mlle such objection that that
plan was abandoned and vvo established
quatantino on the hulk Fioruti cit Nightingale I
whore every passenger from Infected potts
sick suspected and well was detnlned at
least two dais und the ships they came In
vere fumigated Xo case of cholera entered
this city then You cannot Properly fumlirato
I ship vvhlli the passengers are oji board i ho
kind of fumigation that kills cholera germs
would kill the passengers I repeat thatunless
wo can be assured of that kind ot quarantine
in every port on thecontlntnt the Government
should absolutely stop lmtnration
Dr loseph i Bryant Cummissioner of the
Health Department was next asked to give
his opinion of the policy ot prohibiting Imml
inution from Infected ports Do answered
I vv e admit that a cholera Invasion is threat
ened by tho binding of Passengers from ships
Kalllnl from infected lorts I then the prohibi
tion ofsuub Immigration is tho logical conclu
shut Imnilgranti are thiti carriers and breed
art of disease germs We try our best to
land Immigrants in a healthy and unin
fectvd condition hut there are loopholes
and Haws in men the best possible scheme
Iho health and quarantine olllcers are to
Borne extent dependent on tho word of others
and vvhilii those others may be sincere they
are fallible both in their judgments and dlac
hoses Nut only thai hit thos wo have to de
pend upon are biassed and with such possi
bilities to nullify efforts It does not
hlito8 nully our torIM I seem
to mo that wo should endanger the health of
tim whole nation whun vvocunalraostcertainly
socuro immunity ity prohibiting immigration
from Infected ports I am in favor uf such
Dr Charles O Wilson President of the Com
missioners of Health said
hero can tie no question that the prohi
bition ol the landing of immigrants from In
fncted ports would bo a most excellent thing
I there are means of securing that safeguard
at this critical period those means should be
Dr Cyrus Edson of the Health Department
also favors thu prohibition of Immigration as
a preventIve or a rliol > ra epidemic In this
country Uo said I believe in the absolute
piohlbltlon ut Immigration so long as cholera I
threatens us As to tho mothud of effecting
such prohibition I am not prepared to speak
but as to its desirability tliero Is no doubt in
my mind
Thomas F Gilroy Commissioner of Public
Works oxpressod the opinion thlt thllrohibl
lon of immigration would be a serious Slit
drance to commerce roods < as well as poi
sons said hu bring cholera germs and I
am afraid that the pronll Itlonof onn would in

of r our health oIllcorB that tho continued land
