Formulas Regarded by Dr. Salam bini as of Great Value?Pre cautions Necessary. PARIi*, September 4.?Dp. Salamblni, the discovery of whose serum and vaodne for the treatment of cholera has recently bean announced, calls attention to the decreasing mortality In Russia where the serum was Injected In a large number ot critical cases, lie believes it certain, therefore, that If the serum wore used In the early stages of the disease the results wouid be very much more successful. The serum has been prepared as a re sult of much work with formulas sug gested by professors of the Pasteur Insti tute. With reference to the vaccine, Prof Metchnikoff of the Pasteur Institute de clared today that it was a most impor tant discovery, but he waroMl all that it nhould be employed with the greatest discretion. Moreover, he expressed doubt of th?i practicability of general vaccina tion and still believed that the essential thing to combat tne disease was the Adoption of ordinary precautions such as boiling drinking water and a close scru tiny of uncooked vegetables. His ob servations in Russia convinced him that the h ghest cholera mortality was among drunkards who heedlessly quenched their thirst with all sorts of infected water. I>r. Salamblnl's discoveries are of the greatest Interest in medical circles and to the people generally, as France has just adopted very rig:d disinfecting pre cautions on the frontier in view of the prevalence of cholera in Holland.

Long Waiting List at All London Offices?Travelers More Numer ous Than Usual. Special Cablegram to Thf Slnr. LONDON", September 4.?The close of the summer tourist season witnesses tlie' usual rush of Americans to secure home ward passages, with the fcsult, also as usual, that many are disappointed and compelled to prolong their stay in Ping land indefinitely. The shipping com panies are nowhere near able to provide sufficient accommodations to meet the demand. Every big company has a long list of persons eager to seize the first opportunity to cross. There were more than one hundred names on the waiting list at the Cunard ojce when the Muure tania sailed today. If a few berths had fallen vacant at the last moment the first on the list would have been accommo dated, but there were no vacancies. The Cunard people say that it has been a record season. The Carmania, which sailed last Tuesday, could have been filled twice over. All the Cunard boats are l>ooked substantially full until the middle of October, a few first-class berths from September 2X onward being the only ones available for late comers. The North German Lloyd officials say that the only berth they can offer for September Is the second officer's on the Kronprlnz Wilhelm. sailing September 2H. They will book that for $375. There is also a chance that one berth may be va cant on the George "Washington, sailing September 26. ALONG THE RIVER FRONT. Arrivals.

A subcommittee headed by MaJ. George O. Squler of the Signal Corps has been appointed by the Aero Club of "Washing ton to look over the ground around Washington and decide on a location that will be available for the great aviation meet that It Is hoped viU be held here n?xt year. This committee will report at & Joint meeting of the Aero Club and the Chamber of Commerce to be held tomor row. There are three locations under serious consideration. One of these is the course running from Bennlng race track north toward College Park, where the govern ment has arranged for the training flights for the officers of the Signal Corps. The training ground at College Park Is not itself big enough. While it is well adapt ed tor practice flights, it is.not of suf ficient area for an atrial raop course There is a flat valley lying between thaC place and Kenning, however. where It i< thought a course could l?e well hud out. Two in Washington. The two other plat es sire on the wate? front of Washington. One of them tak? a in the area of Potomac Park, which is almost exactly ten kilometers around the water's edge, and the other extends from th speedway to the Virginia shore, and involves crossing the river. This would give a wide area for laying out the course, and either of tiie latter location! would give a good spot for special con tents over the water. The idea of flying over water at all is not so distasteful to aviators as it would have been a year ago, and it is possible a year from now it will he even less so. It is believed, however, that a course can be laid out around Potomac Park where there will tie practically no water to cross and which, being directly in the city, eliminates the question of transportation altogether. Charged With Assault. Nellie Small, colored, twenty years old, was locked up at the fourth precinct police station last night charged with assault. It is alleged that Nellie en gaged in a fight with William Denny, also colored, in South Washington and cut him about his back. The police took the wounded man to the Kraergencjg Hospital and had his wound dressed.
