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
"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.
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.

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 "
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.
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
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
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
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
The mayor called attention to section
111 of the city charter, which reads as
"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-!
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

Three Races Yesterday, and a Social Even-
Inn at New Haven Yaoht Clnb House.
The New Haven Yacht club catboat

The first contest started at 2:20
o'clock and was for 18-foot open cat
boats. The contestants were the fol
lowing boats: Commodore, Syren.Jane
and Ewen Mclntyre. The Commodore
and the Ewen Mclntyre are sister boats
and there is a good deal of rivalry be
tween them. The Commodore won out

Nit, 2:17:64; Sigma, 2:19:26. The Libbie
and the Tigress are old rivals, and yes
terday the Libbie got a dose of the
treatment she gave the Tigress on La
bor day.
The third and last race was that of
the cabin catboats. The boats and
their time were: Castina, the winner
2:24:26; Grace, 2:28:02; Monsoon, 2:25:45;
Petrel, 2:26:48, and the May and the
Frolic, both of whom did not finish.
This was a very interesting race, the
Grace making a- fine showing, but los
ing on the time allowance.
It was ladles' night last evening at
the club house. About seventy-five or
eighty ladies and gentlemen were pres
ent, and a very pleasant social time
was had on the cool, breezy verandas of
the club house. Light refreshments
were served and all had a most enjoy
able evening of it. Robinson's orches
tra furnished the music for dancing.
Quite a party came up from Woodmont
on Mr. Anderson's yacht. Among the
ladies present were: Mrs. Waterbury
of Chicago, Miss Rawson, Mrs. Augur
Mrs. Huntley, Miss Huntley, Mis3 Mc

the funeral services over the remains
of the late Ogden Goelet were held
The utmost secrecy was observed in
tho arrandgements, and no one but the
immediate family of the deceased was

At 3 o'clock a closely covered car
riage was driven to the yacht club
landing and Mrs. Ogden Goelet; Mrs,

Radical Changes to be Made In the Coach
ing Corps.
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.

Given by the Monitor Club.
Waterbury, Sept. 16. The largest at
tended and best conducted boxing exhi
bition ever held in this city took place
here to-night under the auspices of the
Montior club. Sports from Connecticut
and representatives of the sporting
element of New York and Massachu
setts were in attendance and it is esti
mated that over 3,000 people witnessed
the bouts. The affair was pulled oft
without the least disturbance and gave
general satisfaction, barring the Mur
phy-Lane bout, which was scheduled
for twenty rounds, but in which Lane
quit in the eleventh round.
Charley White was referee. Denn la
O'Reilly master of ceremonies and

inougn not scheduled as the star
bout, the rounds between Sammy Mey

New London proved to the attraction of
tne nignt. 'ine limit number of rounds
were pulled off to a draw, but it was
apparent that each lad was working
for a decision.
Rice's tactics were to land on the
stomach, playing for the wind, while
Meyers hoped to get a knock-out on
Rice's jaw. The ten rounds were hard
fought and very clever, and the referee
Justly declared it a draw.
