Three New Cases In Jackson and One New Case in Mobile, Jackson, Miss.. Sept. 16. The state board has it from Dr. Purnell at Ed wards to-day that three new cases of yellow fever, whioh he has not yet seen, are reported. He has no new cases of yellow fever to report. Captain Mont gomery and Mrs. Anna Henry had the black vomit this morning. There is great need for nurses, which the board will endeavor to supply. Dr. Purnell says that people in the country want supplies from Edwards and some of the Edwards people want to leave ror their plantations. The board instructed him to enforce rigid quarantine and to Jail any who violated the rules. Edwards is stromrlv euard ed, as are the Austin and Chamnion places, the only county places infected. j.ne ooara is nopeful of checking the disease and it Is greatly cheered by the fact that up to 1 p. m. not a new case was reported anywhere in the state. Meridian still refuses to let Alabama and Vicksburg trains pass, despite the remonstrances of the board. uauKsun, miss., oepi. lb. At 1 D. m. Mayor Wharton issued a proclamation saying: "We are still free from any sickness of suspicious fevers. We have strength ened very materially our quarantine regulations, and will continue to do so as long as danger is threatened. "We have the utmost confidence that we will keep the yellow fever out of the city." Mobile, Ala., Sept. 16. The board of health reports one new case of yellow fever to-day, making five cases in all declared. There have been no deaths. one patient Delng discharged to-day. SITUATION AT HAZEZTOX. Sheriff Martin Says That He Is Prepared to Face the Music. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Sept. 16. The length of the stay of the military in the Hazleton mining district will depend on Sheriff Mar'tih'1?""' " General Gobin says he stands ready to withdraw the soldiery, if the sheriff says so. , A rumor gained currency to-dav that the sheriff had concluded to assume the responsibility of preserving the Deace again. This brought an avalanche of telegrams from the officials of the coal companies advising the sheriff not to let the militia go until there was a more settled reeling in Hazleton and vicin ity. Labor leaders have, also appealed to the sheriff. They say the presence of the troons prevents a settlement of the strike, as the operators take advantage of the situation. They say the presence of the militia has a tendency to overawe the men and every day they remain it is a point gained for the coal companies. Sheriff Martin will be governed by what his legal adviser says. He has great faith in his attorney. The feeling of the latter in the matter is well known. He thinks It would be unwise to withdraw the troops now, as It might lead to further disturbances nerirr Martin states he is not afraid to face the issue. PROGRESS OF LICUTGKRT TRTAZ.

New York Connty Republicans Favor a Strnlcht Ticket. New Tork, Sept. 16. The republican committee of New York county held a meeting to-night at Lyric hall here, and by a unanimous vote adopted resolu tions favoring a straight republican tioket at the coming municipal elec tion. The resolutions were presented by General C. H. T. Collis, commissioner of public works after a speech in which he characterized Seth Low and the Citizens' Union as a "disturbing ele ment." There was not a dissenting voice among the 181 committeemen present when the resolutions, which stated that it Is "the duty of the convention to nominate a ticket of Its own selection representative of the sentiment and purpose of the republican party," were offered by General Collis. They were declared carried. The session at which was made the answer of New Tork county republi cans to the supporters of Seth Low in Kings county lasted Just twenty min utes, and the greater part of this time I was spent la loud cheerinaV " NEW HAVEN, CONTROLLER MAY BORROW SO AUTHORIZED BY THE BOARD OF FINANCE. In Accordance With the Resolution Which Passed Common Council and Signed by the Mayor City's Balance In the Bank Will be Psad at Present Small Sums to be Borrowed Later as Needed. The resolution passed by both branches of the court of common coun cil and signed by the mayor, authoriz ing the board of finance to borrow, "to the best advantage for the city of New Haven, the sum of $20,000," was: brought before the board of finance at its meet ing last evening, and the board, on mo. tlon of Burton Mansfield, voted to au thorize the city controller to borrow money from time to time, as needed, not to exceed $20,000, on the best terms to be obtained at the times when such sum, or a portion thereof, may be need ed for the purposes specified in the res. olution. After the resolution authorizing the borrowing had been read by City Clerk Lyon, Mayor Farnsworth said that the common council had acted on his sug gestion and the question before the board was as to where the money should be borrowed Controller Brown announced that he had received an offer from the Yale National bank to loan any amount up to $35,000 at 4 per cent., payable on de mand, ten days' notice to be given be fore payment would be required. He also announced that a similar offer had been made by the City , bank for any sum up to $50,000. He :said that the entire $20,000 could be borrowed from either of these banks at present for 4 per cent., or that a portion of the amount could be borrowed now at that rate and other amounts later at the rate of money at that time. Commissioner Forsyth asked if there was not some source from which moh ey could be borrowed without paying any interest. He thought that there might perhaps be unappropriated mon ey in some other fund that could be used for the purposes mentioned in the resolution. Mayor Farnsworth said that he knew of no euch fund. He said that he could see no objection, however, to paying bills from the money on hand, without borrowing Just now, and that "as long as we have money in the bank I don't see why we should borrow until we run ashore." Commissioner Forsyth said: "Mr. Mayor, hasn't the city now some money that we can use for purposes named in this resolution without paying Interest? The controller told us at the meeting In your office the other day that there was $16,000 uninvested in one fund that we could use without Interest." Commissioner Dowe "I would like to make a suggestion that that sinking fund money be placed somewhere where it will stay and will not be talk ed of as liable to be used for other pur poses than that for which it was set aside. Either take it and use it now or place it where it can't be used." Commissioner Mansfield "That is what I also would advise. Put that money where it will get an income right off. If we once get that money out of the sinking fund we will never get it back again." Commissioner Forsyth "I think we ought to use that money now. Then we can pay it back and turn it back into the sinking fund. I don't care about borrowing money and paying in terest when we can get it without pay ing interest. No good business man would do that in his business." The motion of Commissioner Mans field, mentioned above, was then put and carried. The request from the- lamp depart ment for permission to transfer $100 from the gas account to the sundry ac count in that department, to pay ex penses of the street lighting convention In Columbus, as the lamp committee may direct, was next brought up. The lamo committee wishes to use this money to pay a portion of the expenses of the committee In attending the con vention. The request was referred to the board of finance by the common council. Mayor Farnsworth was in favor of granting the transfer desired. He re called the fact that when the board of finance was looking for money for the department' of public works the lamp department was the only one In which a saving had been found. He said that the lamp department had not become so thoroughly imbued with the Idea that every cent appropriated to it should be uaed, as have the other de partments. It was voted to recommend to the common council that the transfer be made. The mayor called attention to section 111 of the city charter, which reads as follows: "The treasurer of the city shall re ceive the amount of school money to which the district is entitled from the school moneys of the state, from the town of New Haven, from state appro priations for school purposes, from gifts and from the tax laid within the district for school purposes, which mon eys shall be subject to the order of the board of education under such rules and regulations as the board of finance may from time to time establish." The mayor thought that it would be proper to request the board of educa tion to submit suggestions as to the rules and regulations mentioned In this section, and on motion of Controller Brown it was so voted. Mayor Farnsworth also called atten tion to the fact that, under section 3 of the consolidation act, the three mem bers of the department of charities and corrections to be appointed by the may. or during the month of November do not begin to serve until December 7 next Section 5, last part, requires that on or before the first day of Novem ber in each year said board shall sub mit to the board of finance of said city estimates of the amount of money re-! CONN., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1897. quired by it for the ensuing municipal year, specifying the purpose for which each part is required, The mayor thought that, in view of the fact that the board of charities and corrections will not come into office un til December, some arrangement should be made to have the estimates of that department made, up during November, as required in the charter. He thought that It would be advisable to request the board of selectmen to make up the estimates, and the ejty clerk was di rected to convey theiequest to the se lectmen. The board 'then adjourned. It is probable that -no portion of the $20,000 authorized t be borrowed by the controller will be, borrowed at once. The city has a balanese in the bank, and bills incurred by street cleaning and other work provided for In the resolu tion will be paid from this balance. When the balance becomes cut down, and it is desired to increase it, then sums will be borrowed. It is not thought that It will be necessary to borrow the entire $20,000 at one time. Smaller sums will be borrowed as need ed, and thus the interest which would accrue if the entire amount were bor rowed now will bel saved. The mem bers of the board of finance last even ing thought that there would be a sav ing in interest in thfls borrowing small er amounts at a time, even if the rate of interest charge should be higher later on. f HASH EX It A L T, i, J.t G UK FORM lilt.

There is some doubt as to the other military companies having basket ball teams this year, as the results last year were not entirely satisfactory, the riv airy aroused being so strong as to cause some ill-feeling between some of the -companies.,.

Cambridge, Mass., Soft. 16. There will be a decided change in the organi zation of the football coaching corps 'at Harvard this fall, as well as a wide departure from former methods of de veloping the eleven. Last spring it was announced that the destinies of Har vard on the gridiron would be dele gated to the three men who had charge In 1894 W. A. Brooks, L. E. Deland and R. E. Emmons with Deland as head coach. Since that time Captain Cabot has evidently changed his mind, for now comes the surprising news that W. Cameron Forbes '92 will be bead coach, with the above-named trio simply an advisory board. Forbes is the son'of Colonel W. H. Forbes of Mil ton, and is a well known polo player and yachtsman. He never played on the 'Varsity eleven while in college, but was prominent on his class eleven. He coached the '98 and '99 freshman teams with marked success. His particular province this fall will be the development of team play, but he will take active charge on the field next Monday. Mr. Forbes and Captain Cabot are close friends and have been planning their campaign all summer. It will be their aim to avoid the errors of previous years. This year the first eleven will be selected as early as possible and the disastrous policy employed last fall of playing four elevens most of the sea son will be abandoned.
