to iaaue a loan in c rJer to sec ore funds

a deb'or to the empire for the entire
fciniunt paid to the landlords, together
with interest, the whole cum to be re
paid into the Imperial Treasury by
Ireland in installments within fifty

This plan involves a domestic arrange

Und and tbe tenanie Ireland becom
ing the tenant of the empire and sub

aggregate will include rent, taxes and
a levy to meet the interest on the con

Aalntla Fever In Encland.
Lahsihq. Mien.. March 23 Dr. II,
B. Baker, secretary of the State Board
of Health, has returned from Pincon-
ning, where be was summoned by tbe
local health officer to investigate a cose
of sickness closely resembling tbe
dreaded Asiatio lever. Arthur B.
Smith, a prominent lumtor man in
Finconninir. Bay county, was taken
sick March loth' with vomiting and
diarrhea, followed by cramps and ol
lapse. He became cold and bis pulse
ceased at the wrist. In fact, be bad
all the symptoms of cholera. Vigorous
work by tbe attending physicians
brought the patient through, and he is
likely to recover, rnomgn disinfection
has been ordered, i'r. iMvxer said :
I made vigorous efforts to learn
any possible way in which cholera
miuht bave been brought lntj rin
connonz. immigrants bad recently
arrived in tne vicmiiy, oni none were
from a place Known to be infected,
The men in the camp where the pa
tient bad been had not been outside
of the State, nor had Smith been out
of the vicinity. As to fralti from the
Mediterranean, oranges bad beenia
the house, bnt the patient is not fond
of o ranees. He is fond of raisins,
however, and has been in tbe habit of
eating them from the box. A box in
the house came from Valencia, Spain,
and the raisins which Smith had
eaten were not coated with sngar, but
were apparently fresh, probably of
tbe crop of 18S5, at which time cholera
ia known to bave prevailed extensively
in Valentia. Tbe box will be examined
for cholera germs.
