Opposition to Illm, He Derlaret, Is Inspired
by the New York Journal.
DU.I.AS. Tex.. Nov. 23, Congressman J. W.
Bailey to-day gave out the following typewrit
ten statement as embodying what he Is willing
to publish nt this timo on the Issue of the Dem
ocratic leaderbhlp In the House of Hepresenta
tlves of tho Fifty-sixth Congress:
"I do not entertain tho slightest fear about
the result. Tho noxt House will contain 101
Democrats who uro also members of the pres
ent House, nnd out of that number no man
who may bo put forwaid as a candidate against
mo can command over 31 votes. I will receive
at least 70 lotes from tho old members, which
will leave me only 12 votes short of the nomi
nation for Hpcakor.and I havo already rocolved
voluntary assurances of support from more
than that number of now members.
" The opposition to me comes mainly from
tho New lork Journal, and aside from some
personal reasons proceeds largely from the
fact that tho editor and owner of that news
paper is ambitious to become tho maker and
unmnker of Democratic pollolcs nnd.Domo
cratlc leadors. He hns recontly promulgated
what ho calls tho "Journal's national platform,'
which Is Imperialism run mad, and knowing I
would not support its propositions ho ery
naturally desires to defeat mo with some man
who Is to feel under obligations to him nnd
therefore will adopt his iolcy.
"Since, tho election his paper lias printed an
editorial article, signed by .Mr. Hearst himself,
in which he declares that thu Journal sent Its
representative, editors to Washington to fight a
Demociatle caucus and broke It up. nnd In the
Mimu article ho declares that nt the Now York
State Convention he offered to nnd urged unon
the gentlemen In control a plank cmliodylng
thn.MHivinf national platform. His Mutoinont
thnt bo broke, up n Democratic caucus Is with
out Ihesomblancoof truth, but It betrays the
fact that lie Is seeking tn obtain an undue In
lluence over the conduct of our party.

Niw Om.EANSNov.23. Tho so-called yellow
fever epldemlo of 18l "wont out" during
Novomborln tho most remnrknbfo manner.en
tlrely different from every previous visitation
of this kind tho South has ever known': and
ihore Is reason to bollovo, frpm tho mannenln
which It made Its disappearance, that thoro
nover will bo another epldemlo scare In the
South, nnd probably nover ono of' the so-called
epidemics.
The yellow fever first mnde Its nppoarnnco nt
McIIonry, Miss.. In May. That outbreak was
evidently thorocrudosconco of the fovewf 181)7,
due to germs that had hibernated In a pile ot
sawdust. It was caught in timo nnd Promptly
crushed out by the energy of tho United States
Marino Hospital Servioe nnd the Mississippi
State Board of Health. The work was splen
didly dono, the fever being prevented from
aprendlng from MoIIonry and not n life being
lost. Sureoon-Gonernl Wymnn was able to
announce the complete extinction of the fever
on the very day that it made Its appearance
among our troops at Santiago. Tho work was
certainly woll done: for during tho second opl
demlo of tho summer, although tho fever made
Itsappearanco In nit the surrounding country,
not a case of It was reported In McIIonry.
This socond outbreak Is still enveloped In
myst,cry, nnd It Is by no menus certain that the
mystery will ever bo thoroughly solved. The
dlseaso spread with great, rapidity nnd was
officially reported In llfty-threa places In Toxns,
Louisiana and Mississippi. The chancer are
that It appeared In many rnoro Places, for tho
local doctors wore unablo to recoenlze or diag
nose It at first- The rapidity with which It
spread, and Its appearance at towns where It
was unknown In 1807. ns well as the lateness
of Its development, prove conclusively Oint It
was not a ense of recrudescence, fever lift over
from the previous year. All tho Indications aro
thattho dlseaso came from Cuba. It'mndoits
appearonco from six weeks to two months
af tor the outbreak at Santiago, and soon after
tho fever troops had been brought homo, nnd
ran along tho lino of tho railroads whore tho
soldlor travel was largest. Tho Louisiana
Board of Health has evidence showing that
doctors, nurses and patients In the fever hos
pital wero admitted to this country without
their trunks being oponod disinfected.
Various efforts have been made to trace the
fever back to the original case or cases, as was
done so successfully In 1878; but this has not
been done so well. There are reports of sick
soldiers hero and there, whloh may explain
part of tho mystery; but tho most likely ex
planation, and ono that will probably be veri
fied whon it Is critically Investigated, Is that
tho fever was Introduced into tho South by a
bridge gang from Santiago. This cane was
employed by Gen. Shatter In unloading his
transports, repairing roads nnd building
bridges during the Santiago campaign, and
occupied somo of tho infected houses at Si
honey. At the end of the Santiago campaign
tlio cane returned to the United States, where
they were employed in brldgo building on ono
of the Mississippi railroads. The cabooso in
which they lodged was thoroughly Infected,
and they travelled along the Hues of the Mis
sissippi railroads distributing tho fever at
various points. T?hls Is tho story which is gen
erally told, but has not yet beon thoroughly in
vestigated. It agrees fully with all tlio facts
known about tho epidemic, which ran along
tho lines of the railroad, appearing at these
very points whoro repairs wero needed, and it
was prevalent among the employees in the
construction department of the railroads.
lieu Dr. Carter went to Alexandria. La., ho
found a considerable portion of the population
down with yellow fever, which was popularly
supposod to bo grip. It had prevailed then
forn month or more, so lone Indeed Hinr Its i
origin was completely lost to sight, and it had '
spread to nearly all the neighboring towns and I
villages. Not only had thoro been no deaths ,
from the disease, but no ono bad beciiorlti- '
cally ill. under these clreumstnnee.8 It wns Im
possible to convince the Alexandrians that this
nlld-mannorcd malady was the dreaded yel
low fever, "the pest" as they wore wont to call
it. They noonpoohed the idea and finally be
came Indignant and hold several mass meet
ings to repudiate Dr. Carter's dlacnosls. It so
happened, however, that a death occurred
that or a railroad man. verifying the bridge
Bang theory of the Introduction of the disease
just as one of those meetings was being held,
and the diagnosis was accepted unwillingly.
It was much the samewherover tho disease
mado ltsappoaranco. Nowhere was ltvirulent.
but everywhere of so mild a type as to stagger
tho belief of the. people who had hoard such
nwful stories of the mortality of yellow fever.
In a majority of thotowus In which the fevor
mado Its appearance not a single death oc
curred: In no town did the mortality exceed
tho average of an ordinary healthy summer.
1 he total deaths from the disease in n period of
three months and forapopulatlonlofover 1.000.
000 wero only 128. or at the rate of .5 per 1,000
per annum.
This was so contrary to all expectations, to
a I tho stories that thoso who had been through
old epidemics were In the habit of telling, as to
cause doubt and confusion in the minds of tho
people. Nine-tenths of the people In New Or
leans did not believe It was yollow fever, nnd
have not accepted that Idea yet.
Among the lenornnt classes there Is a strong
popular prejudice against the doctors, and a
believe that they Invented "the epidemic" for
their own benefit.. "They get twice or thrlco
as much for attending a case of yellow fever ns
tor dengue." you can hear almost anywhere.
and they call everything yellow fever. In tho
country the story Is current that the experts of
the Marino Hospital Service and the several
Boards of Health get $2o for every case of yel
low fevor they report, hence (in popular bellof)
tholr zeal In renortlne cases.
There, la no reason, however, for suspecting
the doctors of to-day of a mistake, as diagnosis
of tho disease Is now easily made,
A contusing fact is the appearance of a largo
number of oilipr fevers, mainly malarial, In the
train of tho yellow fevor. nnd so mixed up with
It as to confound tho lay public. Last year
yellow fpyor got Into this country In the midst
of nn epidemic of dengue. At Ocean 8prlngs.
Miss., this year, there was malarial feverand
uetiguo wnerevor the yellow fever appearoJ.
Those facts hnvo led n number of doctors to
go back to tho old theory that yellow teyer wns

BTltVCK A XEST -OF SKUXKS.
Montlcello Suffering from a Discovery of
Chicken Thieves Under n. Ham.
Monticeixo, N. V.. Nov.23 .This village
has been undergoing a strange experience for
the last two days. Houses havo been closed
tight nnd housowives havo been Industriously
burning sugar and coffee In an effort to clear
tho atmosphere. School hns been continued
only by an effort and with a greatly decreased
attendance.
On Friday mornlnc, while workmcnTwere
tearing down an old barn in the rear of the
Hotel Rockwell. Fred Mitchell, a carpenter,
stepped throufh the timbers, his foot struck n
soft object, a squeal was hoard and an unmls.
tnkahle. odor filled tho air. Ho tried to get
away, hut was too late. With a cry of "A
skunk I" he wont home to chance his clothes.
Frank Geraghty, who lives next to the barn,
keeps n large hennery nnd for two yeurs has
beon bothered with chicken thieves. As soon
as ho heard tho wonl skunk he grabbed n gun.
ran tn tho I Kirn and shot tho animal. A crowd
ot school children gathered around. Some one
discovered another skunk and it was qulckiy
laid low. The workmen reluctantly beenn to
take up more planks. Ono of them pried up a
big board nnd started to lilt it nwny when ho
straightened himself up and rubbed his eyes.
Between tho crossbeams ho saw n black nnd
while mass moving around. The place wns
filled with skunks A lone stick induced tho
gnmo to appear. Three heads came up. Bang!
Banc! spoke the gun nnd two moro victims
wore secured. Itobert Jones, who was told to
let down tho plank while the gun was being
loaded, forgot to act ns jailor nd three moro
skunks crawled out and mnde for tho crowd
before the others were secured. Tho result
wns that many spectators withdrew disabled.
Four dogs next nppeared and a rough and
tumble light ensued. Two of the skunks wero
killed and the third took refuge under a pllo
of boards. The eondltton of tbn atmosphere
was such by this time that jieople living fully
a mile away took engnlznnce of tho battle.
When the gun was reloaded the plank was
lifted. Four moro animals appeared. One
was killed, but the marksmnn was ao excited
that he mlssod tho second shot. Then began
a second rush among tho spectators. In all
more than a dozen skunks were killed and a
rew escaped under another barn which will be
torn down next week. When the flooring of
tho latter structure Is torn up many families
are seriously considering moving away for a
few days.

Bantiaoo de ConA. Nov, 23, There has ben
a large Increase In gambling during the past
six woeks, nnd tho many complaints of disturb
ances In cambllng places about the town
caused 'Gon, Wood to prepare nn ordor, whloh
will be Published to-morrow, fnrldddlncr tram-
bllne In nny form In any part of tljo city or
province The order will becomo operatlvo na
soon as It Is tssuod. There will be no loophole
or technicality whloh will enablo tho clubs,
which are tho chief offenders, to ovado the
order.
It Is expected that the publication of the
ordor will create a profound sonsatlon, as
gambling Is part ot the Cuban national life.
QamcS of baccarat, monto, faro nnd roulette
have been condilotcd oponly in thoolubs and
saloons for many years. Gon. Wood might
havo been willing to overlook the cambllnc so
long ns It was conducted quietly, but tho situ
ation was becoming worse dally nnd the order
of tho city Was threatened. Many professional
gamblers and all-round "bad men" have como
from tho Unltod States recently and started
gambling places. Thoy declared to-day whon
they heard that Gen. Wood Intondcd to stop
tho games and close up tholr places that they
would resist- It thoy do there will be trouble
for thorn. Gen. Wood told the correspondent
of The Sun to-day that ho Is determined that
thero shall no longer be cause for the com
plaints ho has been receiving lately. Under
the ordor tho penalty Imposed for conducting
nny game ot ilianco Is $1,000 and thirty days'
Imprisonment. A second offence will be moro
eovcrely punished,
Cnpt. E. II. Ord. son of the Into Gon. Ord
nnd brother of Lieut. Ord. who wns killed nt
El Canoy. will, while In the United States on a
month's leave ot absence, which begins on
Doc. 1.' lay boforo President MoKlnlcy n plan
for organizing a regiment of Cuban Infantry
for service In Cuba. Many Cubans who are
woll disposed toward tho American Govern
ment and to ('apt. Ord's plan, and who recont
ly received furloughs from tho Cuban Army,
hnvo expressed a desire to enter the United
States service. Copt. Ord has talked over the
scheme with Col. Carlos Garcia and other Cu
ban ofllcors. all of whom fnor It. Cant Ord
has had twenty years' experience In the army,
nnd spent somo timo In Moxlco organising
native troops there. He told The Sun corre
spondent ho believed that the Cubans, under
American regulations and discipline, would
make excellent soldiers.
Col. Crane of the Ninth Immunes enmo down
from San Luis to-day to talk with Gen. Wood
nhout the recent shooting affray there be
tween CuBans and negro soldlors. which re
sulted In tho 'killing of the chief of the rural
mounted pollco and sovBi-al others. Col.
Crane told The Sun correspondent that ho did
not desire to shield any of his men. but he be
lieved that they fired on tho police because
they thought they wero Cuban soldiers sent to
attack them. The police wore the uniform of
the Cuban Army and tho negro soldlors did
not know that they were recular police.
Gon. Wood's secret sorvice agents have ob
tained considerable information about the
shooting and somo nrrests will bo mado short
ly. Gen. Wood has sent word to a number of
Cubans who fled to the hills immediately after
the shooting, fearing another attack by the
negroes, to return to thoir homes, assuring
tnem that ho will protect them. Tho baby
who was shot through tho body and tho Cuban
who held It, who was also wounded, as well
as tho wounded nogro soldiers. wllUreeover.
Gen. Wood Issued an order to-day statlne
that he would not lallow the bodies of any
soldiers, excepting suoh ns .were .'Killed In
action, to bo removed to the United States un
til midwinter. The ordor was Issued as an
additional precaution against the spread of

MVXICIPAT. COVBT JUSTICES.
Conditions That Mako a Ile-olectlon Less
Knsy to Secure Than Heretofore.
At the recent election no District Court, or
Municipal Court. Justices, as thoy are now
called, were voted for by tho electors ot New
York county, and it was an unusual occurrence.
The new charter provides that while the Jus
tices heretofore chosen to presido In District
Courts In New York county shall serve forslx
years, tholr successors shall serve for ten years.
A ten years' term for n Civil Justlco with the
accompanying salary ot $0,000 a year makes It
a deslrablo offlce. but a radical change effect
ed by the charter hns made more difficult the
re-election of the present Justices, who were
chosen lu 1803 and whose terms expire In No
vember next. This provision, while not alter
ing the jurisdiction of these Judges, changes
their pluco or service bv establishing a rule of
lotatlon. and therefore a Judge chosen In one
district has no longer tho advantage arising
from continued service in that district: he
must move around. from district to district as
punllo urcencydemnndsand must lose thereby
tho opportuntles for attaining local popularity
which his Predecessors iiossessed.
The duties of a Municipal or District Court
Justlco nro to some oxteut discretionary. A
very considerable, number of those who appear
In these courts do so without counsel. Many
lire unfamiliar with English, and the Judge. In
ndditlon to making Inquiries which are usually
mado by lawjers. acts In many cases as Inter
preter besides. Ho has, moreover, practical
dlseretlonury power in the matter of suits
brouelit for the recovery of premises, nnd It is
tho rule of tho Judge to allow tho tenant a
certain number of days In the case of serious
hardship by withholding his signature from
the (IIsposso'h warrant nnd thereby seeurlug
to tho tenant an opportunity to find another
homo. As a result of this custom H bus here
tofore been within the power of District Court
Justices to retain tho good wishes of mnny con
stituents. Under tho present svstom of rota
tion, howover.n Judge Is moro ofton nwny from
tho district which elects him than ho Is In tha
court to which ho waschoson. and, whllo bv
theVverelso of leniency and consideration of
the Interests of the needy and suffering he may
gain general good will and tho approbation of
his conscience, such acts no longer avail In his
own district, as was formerly tho case. For
the llrst time, therefore, next year a Judge
must run in ono district on his record made in
otlior districts, and thoso of tlio Municipal
Court Justices who cxect to bo candidate
for re-election will not have quite so easy a
tlmo ns wns the easo In 18SI3, when previously
chosen. Justlco Lynn In that contest had a
plurality of fi.H(M) in n total of li.ooo tes.
