JAPKSON, Miss., Sept. 15. AU the fears of the cu.ztna in r*gard to the sickness prevalent at Edwards have been realised. Dr. Gulter&s, the expert, has confirmed seven cases of yellow fever and aays there ar»- many suspects. First the cases were reported as malarial fever, then after a tim* they became dengue fever. Another wait and they w»'re prounced suspicious, ami finally declared to be the genuine yellow jack. During ail thts time the disease has been spreading rapidly, at the rate of five or six n w canes daily, until th»-re are now forty cases in existence s; Edwards. The e\ ilution of the disease from malarial to yellow fever was such that the people now regard dengue as simply a more conven ient t» rm than yellow fever. Dr. Guiteras arrived at Edwards on a specta! train at 4 o'clock thts morning and proceeded to work. After he made his diagnosis of the suspected cases, confirm ing Dr. Purnell. the board instructed Dr. Puraell to place a cordon of guards around Edwards at once. Report says that the dls- a*e has also appeared at Clinton ar.d Smith's, towns near Edwards.

The worst feature of all. however, is the almo-t continuous blockade miles of hors.-w and men, and only room for one to pass at a time. Sometimes it takes hours to get up that fall in the passes and standing for hours in the cold rain and snow is far from pleasant but so far our party of four have all been weH and quite free from colds. Very few people will pvt over before Ice. and many of those will winter at the lakes, as It 1« impo-sihle to get boats even at $.V*) each. At this time of year a boat cannot be taken over the trail except at enormous expense and prices for pack ing ver both the t-kigugy and Dyea trails are rising day by day. It now costs 42 cents per pound at the very lowest, and one man offer-d to have 1 000 pounds packed over In two weeks, apd no one would take the contract. People are spend!: g enorm us siun < of money in their wild attempt to get in before the "freexe up." but money will not do it. and they are now turning back by the dozens, and will soon be doing so by the hundreds. Tons of provisions have been utterly ruined by being left out along the trail In the rain. In that respect are all rlKht. as we have Irej>t all our jjoodji to gether as much as possible and iroder cover at all times. Our plans »t pr- > nt are as follows: shall go as far a* possible w th our com plete outfit. and If we And we are going to be raught by Ire we will go ahead with about 500 pounds to I„ake Bennett, rarhe tt there, and return to this sMe of the summit and use the goods at this end of the line until we can tret over on the ice. By this plan we calculate that wo will MVH all the extra packing and ex pense. for there Is no use getting caught at the lake and eating "dollar srruh," when by saving that rr. nev we will hive enough to go tn on early In the sprlrnr.
