AH EPIDEMIC-OP TIPHOID 18 PEAEED Does influenza exist in a strong imagina 'tion. as. some doctors claim, or hat the dis- 'aease actnallv strnek Pittsbnn?? Br. D. U". t3pAiikInthe physician of the "Western Peni tentiary,- says the epidemic has already reached -here, and is still coming bag and baggage. The doctor reports that he has several patients in Allegheny suffering from ftheTdisease in a mild form. It lasts nsnally from to to six days, and good care is re quired. The patient should go to bed for at least a'few days. JNo cases hare broken out In the penitentiary, and Dr. Rankin states thatthe health of the inmates is good. The iofluenza has not yet become epidemic in this neighborhood, and the doctor is doubt ,falwhether it will or not The tendency of rtherdisease is toward pneumonia, and this is wEythe greatest care should be taken with patients. 4In a long conrersation with a dispatch reporter yesterday, Dr. Rankin kindly furnished a history of the slacue. Among other things he said: "As the influenza or epidemic catarrh feas'made its appearance in different parts of Europe, starting with the Czar of Bnssia, jre have been expecting its appearance in the United States. "Within the past week our anticinations hare been realized. This 'disease might be called an international epidemic, haying recently appeared in New pTork and Philadelphia, and within the past three days in this vicinity In a mild form. HISTOBYTDF THE DISEASE. Its bibliography is summed np in the following: The first medical history we have of this epidemic dates back to the fifteenth century, 1E10. Of all epidemic rHnpuspn it is the most universal, and the rapidity of its march and extent of its range over land and sea, sometimes in coin nemis Svheres, and in different climates, in opposite seasons and in all varieties or weatner. among people of all classes is remarkable. The French call it la grippe. It has been called coccoluche, because those attacked wore a cap close over their heads. The symptoms of the disease as it then occurred, nearly resembled those which it has assumed in later visitations, severe pain -over the eyes, sneezing, coryza, a difficulty of breathing, coarseness, loss 01 strength, and appetite, fever and harassing cough. "Of the first epidemic reported, its course seems to have been in a northwesterly direc tion, from Malta to Sicily, Spam, Italy, .Germany, .France and txreat .Britain. Ur. Shoit. an eminent observer, states it at tacked at once, and raged over all Europe, ;noi missing a ismuj, stnu mat cone uieu except some children. The next epidemic appeared in 1557. Dr. Fonseca says in this year it in:ested Asia, thence came to Con stantinople, and. having spread itself all over Europe, afterward attacked America, its course being westerly. Dr. Mercatus (states that before the beginning of autumn, '1557, Jt attacked, all parts of Spain at once, iso that the greatest part of the population of (that kingdom was seized with it almost on the same day. Unlike the epidemic or 1510, it was fatal to many. This catarrhal epi demic again made its appearance in 1580. lit was in Sicily in June, at Some in July; in August at "Venice and Constantinople; in September, in Hungary and Germany; in October,on all the Baltic coast; in November, in Norway; in December,in Denmark,Poland and Russia, its course being from east and X -'south to west and north. "The influenza of 1658, of which Dr. "Willis has given us an account, visited .Europe suddenly In April, and was followed in Au- gurtby a fatal epidemic fever. In 1675 another epidemic of influenza'began in Ger- 'imany in September and in England in Oc- 'tober. -ane influenza which raged curing fthe autumn and winter of 1729, during five months it visited almost every part or 'Europe, M; WAS VEST FATAL in many large cities, as in Paris and Lon don. Dr. Xioew states that in the latter city more persons died than at any one time since the plague of 1665. about 1,000 being cut oft weekly in September. Early in the winter it reached Prance. A few weeks after it visited the north ol Italy with great mor tality, in ifebrnarv it afflicted .Borne, and theBhine. Turin and Milan suffered severely. jit reached Naples in March, and after this disappeared. The influenza of 1732 and 1733 scread over 'all Europe, and appeared also in America. It was first noticed about the middle of November in different parts of Germany. Edinburgh appears to have been the first place attacked in Britain, which was on the 17th of December, and it raged at the came time in Switzerland. It appeared at London and in Flanders the first week in January. Toward the middle of the same month it reached Paris and Ireland. In February Leghorn was attacked, and near the end of it Naples and Madrid suffered. New England was invaded by the influenza S about the middle of October. It traveled southward to the Barbadoes. Jamaica. -Mexico and "Pern much at the same rate as & it had done in Europe. ":me influenza of 1733 was followed by thoce of 1741 and 1742. Dr. Hnxham re ported that in 1743, towards the end of April, it was general in England. and Anrlntr tnof Itirinff vnua4 nvaa nil .Europe. InEngUnd it increased the deaths in London in one week to a thousand. The next remarkable visitation of the influenza was in 1762. An excellent de scription of it is given by Sir Georze Baker 'in his "De Cattarho Epidemico anni 1762," who records its appearance in London on the 4th of April. Prcf. Bazoux has given an account of the same disease which sjvas epidemic in Europe generally, in the spring. It attacked Breslan at the end of February, Vienna was visited in March and Hamburg in April. In Venice it was more fatal than in other places. -Paris and the greatest part of France was spared. This epidemic appeared sooner in jOndon than in any other part of England, t was not observed "in Edinburgh and Dub lin may, but in June it was general and severe, it had prevailed in America the 'preceding year. A GEXEBAL EPIDEMIC. - "The next epidemic catarrh in order of time was that noticed in .London, and differ ent parts of Great Britain, by Dr. Fother gill in the latter end of the year 1775. It (was observed also in France, Holland and Germany, and was supposed to be more Total in those conntiies than in Britain. The influenza of 1782 was general over gland, Scotland and Ireland between the' months of May and June inclusive. t pursued a course from the east It appeared at St Petersburg in Febru ary, in Denmark in the latter end of April. From the shores of the Baltic jt spread to Holland and the low countries. The influ enza of the sprine of 1803 afforded an occa sionlior collecting a greater number of sta tistics from different parts of the countries onftbe subject of this epidemic. The Lon "doniMcdicat Society set a laudable example proposing a set of queries to its corre sponding members in a circular letter. One hundred and twenty-lour replies were re ceived containing a. mass of very useful in formation. This epidemic was observed in 'arisjsnd in other parts of France and in oliand come weeks before it appeared in London. Its course seemed to be from gonthltb north. It was evident that there waTitdegree of progressive movement north- wardjlbvjnarklng the time when it was at thejheigbt in each place. Yet many of the acconnt above alluded to inform ns clearly that sporadic or solitary cases exhibiting theltrne characters of influenza occurred In r ii -'t i...-'' v.1... it., j:..... v. KinufiH(g, kmwi vuo umm v mwmwwm eame estaMiafeee' in som taftoes weeks be fore it was quite developed. "The influensa of 1831, though-generally mild in its character, was almost 'universal, for it seems to have prevailed in both hemis pheres m the same year. Acconnts have been received of its appearance in India, as well as in the United States of America. In many places it has been the precursor of the epidemic cholera. This epidemic of in fluenza swept overtbe greater part of En gland, Scotland and Ireland in. the spring and autumn. Late in the autumn it attacked Paris, the South of Spain, Gibraltar and Italy, with more severity than it did the British Islands. At Boniest, was said to occasion great alarm. THOUSANDS SUFFEKnTO. "In Berlin 30,000 people were suffering at the same time, and at a later period 45,000 in Paris. Another severe epidemic of this disease prevailed in Europe and the United States in 1832, 1837 and another In 1843. It has been estimated by Dr. Graves that in Dublin 4,000 persons died of the influenza of 1837. "Among the phenomena relating to the weather, which seem to have bad a con nection with influenza, either as pre cursor or attendant signs, we may notice extraordinary vicissitudes, east erly winds, thick or offensive fogs. Influenza is generally a disease of either spring or autumn. The "spring influ enza has sometimes occurred when the first heat suddenly followed the winter'scold, and the autumnal when the cold moisture and rain fogs of November have succeeded to the heat of a dry sumnter, yet there has not been a uniform connection between any one sensible quality of the atmosphere, as to heat or cold, rain or droueht, wind or calm, and the prevalence of this epidemic; for in different nlaees it has maintained itself un der the dominion of each of these states of the weather. "There are no particular phenomena in na ture that universally characterize the epi demic constitution which precedes, or that which accompanies the. influenza, and we are led to conclude that the causes of this epidemic, supposing them to take their rise in atmospheric changes of a universal na ture, are tar from being marked by uniform ity in the signs. At the same time we are bound to admit that the sndden changes from warm weather to cold, -and from cold weather to warm, with dampness, fogs and easterly winds, have rarely been absent from the list of natural indications. "The influenza, like every other epidemic disease, has given occasion to "medical ob servers to entertain very opposite views on the question of its contagious property. Upon the whole, it would appear that some ceneral cause, if not originating, at least subsisting in the atmosphere. and -depending on its changes, progressive also in its movements from place to place and from country to country, gives rise to the disease, bur that it is probable that a limited propa gation also takes place bypersonal inter course, under the influence and during the prevalence of the epidemic. Milder epi demics of influenza have appeared id this country at irregular intervals since the last above reported, but none have compared to the one that occurred in 1837." HUNDBEDS S2TEEZHTO. Hundreds of the residents of Allegheny were sneezing yesterday, and all who were afflicted were positive that they had la grippe. Jndging from the European dis patches, it is no respecter of age or condition in life, and on the Northside this fact has been plainly and painfully demon strated. Even the street Arabs, while selling papers or blacking boots, stop every once in awhile, look heavenward and sneeze. The little boys who read good books, and go to Sunday school, are interrupted by la grippe, while reciting their lessons. The professional men, the business men and the1 gentlemen of leisure have it. The washwomen, the ser vants and the ladies of .fashion have not escaped. The clerks are very much an noyed, and claim they lose many customers, just because they have, to turn around and sneeze in the middle of an elaborate dis course on the good qualities of an article. The Bev. H. B. Cowl, pastor of the Union avenue church, was unable to preach yester day. When seen at his residence, on San dnskv street, yesterday his eyes and nose were almost crimsonraod',ii general ap pearance was indicative ofmlsery. ALAS, POOP. 1IA3T. "My back aches, my head aches, and every bone in my body feels as if it had been broken," was the way be described his condition. "I don't know-where X got it," he continues, "unless it was from my boy, who had something like this last week, it may be only a bad cold, but -it is the worst attack I ever bad. There are many cases in this neighborhood, and within -the next week I expect to hear of many more." Dr. Kirker was seen in his office on North Diamond street yesterday, and when asked what he knew of the influenza said : "There are a great many cases in Allegheny, and from the way it is spreading I believe there will be double the present number by New Tear's. Many physicians are inclined to laugh it off, but I have seen several patients yesterday and to-day who were very ill. We treat it only as a severe cold. There is no medical term for it, because it has never been so universal before. It is not danger ous in itself, but the after e'ffects are bad. The victim feels depressed both in mind and body. I know of a case where the patient practically recovered ten days ago, but he is yet weak and debilitated. BAD TVEATHEB FOB THE SICK. "The present weather is very bad for con valescent people and persons who nave weak constitutions. It is the kind of weather which breeds the germs of disease and makes such an epidemic possible as the one theynre now having in Europe. The vic tim is attacked very suddenly. I saw a lady the other day who was enjoying'the best of health at 10 o'clock in the morning, and at 2 o'clock that afternoon I was at her bed side. There are also more cases of typhoid iever in Allegheny than we have had for. years." In this connection Dr. Edmundson said yesterday that he feared an epidemio of typhoid fever was imminent. Within the past few days a few cases of a'very malig nant type nave come under his notice, and the remarkable weather is conducive to its rapid propagation. A visit to the Bureau of Health head quarters yesterday revealed the fact that not one case bad been reported yesterday, nut even one of death from ordinary causes, al though it was supposed by many that an epidemic had struck the city. Chief Brown, of the Department of Pub lic Safety, was asked what he would do if the influenza test were applied to the fire-' men to fill the ranks he replied: "I would pnt 100 men on to-morrow who are influenza- proof, water-proof and can give good proof of their ability in any direction "to which they may be called. There will be no tronble iu the Fire Bureau from a cold in its head." Kervooa Disorders.

" He Sys They Don't Cara Whether They -' Get Rapid Transit or Not, ALLEGIENICOIffiCr.LMEN ABB EEBBED The test of the new electric car on the Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester line which was to have come ofl early yesterday morning did not materialize. The car is still at the short line stables, an object of wonder to the railway employes. The cause gjven for the experiment which did not take place was that the patentee did not have all bis machineryon hand, and post poned the test for several days. "Whether it will be a success- or not i; a matter that cannot be answered at present. The patent was worked successfully on the Bidge road line in Philadelphia, and the inventor claims it will also work' in this city. The car is equipped with a storage electrio battery which propels it along the streets. It is an electric system of -transportation by which no wires, overhead or underground, are needed. It is very cheap, and if it can be worked successfully it will "be a formida ble competitor of cable lines iaA. other sys tems of electric roads. From present indications it looks as if the Manchester traction line will not be in operation for aflbng time. It was ex pected" when the idea of changing the mo tive power was agitated, that the horses would be superseded, with cables or elec tricity within one year. The matter is in such shape now that it may be several yean before anything is doneT It is tied up in Allegheny Councils, and according to the statements of Commodore Kountz, the company does not care whether the Councilmen give them the privilege of changing their motive power or not. COUNCrLMEN SUBBED. The Commodore was seen at his residence yesterday afternoon bv a Dispatch reporter. To the questions of the latter the Commodore said: "The matter of granting ns permis sion to change oar motive power is in the bands of a Councilmanic Committee. From present indications the people will have to elect a new set of Councilmen before they get the rapid transit they have been clamoring for. Nearly every man in Coun cils wants us to do something, if yon please, for the permission they give us for chang ing onr power. The line is better stock to run with horses than it would be to run it with the cable. If the members of Councils exercised the same spirit of liberality that is shown us by Mr. Kennedy they would subserve the interests of the people better than they do at present. Mr. Kennedy has tried to" get the thing through because he knows it u going to benefit the people. He is a young man, with a great deal of liberality and a desire Jo, encourage improvements to the city. "Councils have no right to make any de mands upon the company other than to re strict the rate of speed of the cars within the city limits. I do not believe that they should be allowed to run at a faster rate than nine miles per hour. When the Coun cilmen get outside this and want to meddle with the tracks and other matters they are going a trifle too far. If I owned every dol lartin the company I would run the road un til the day of my death before I would be coerced into doing anything that is not equitable with honesty and fairness. I think 'I speak the sentiments of President Dalzell when I say the road will rnn with horses until Councils do what is right with us. Ii the people complain let them. We can stand it as long as they can. A DON'T CASE SPIRIT. "We have shown our willingness to glYe.l uie people rapiu uaua, .u. we cannot get permission to change the power we do not care. We have a charter to rnn a horse car line, and as long as the dividends are satis factory to the stockholders we will continue to run the cars with horses. Our charter is perpetual, and there is no compulsion abont giving the people rapid transit. Until the Councilmen come to their senses we cannot do anything. After we get permission from Councils it will take three months before we could get jour iron made. Then it would take five months more to tret the road built "No, the company will not reduce the rate of fare. We sell five tickets for 25 cents. The object in making people pay 6 cents for a single trip is to force the regular patrons to bny tickets. When they do this the company gets the money. When every person pays their fare in cash the company takes what is left by the conductors. I do not care what the members of Council think ofthe matter. As far as I am individually concerned the fare will stay where it is at 6 cents." On the other hand the people along (Ohio and Federal streets are very much opposed to four tracks on the streets. They object to giving ine streets np entirely to railways, especially when two tracks would answer the purpose. They are also decidly opposed to ,thc payment of 6-cent fares, and a most beautiful fight is yet to be waged before the matter will be settled. Bapid transit has made travel on the streets exceedingly dan gerous. FOW. ABUSE OF ALCOHOL Use Horsford'a Acid Phosphate. Dr. W. E.
