TOPUTOUTBFBUSINESS Opposition to Big Boarding Houses at Tombstone (Special to Review.) Tombstone, Sept 7. The city coun cil of Tombstone has troubles of its own at the present time and the mem bers are finding themselves very pop ular, as at every corner they are held up for a conference by some one in regard to the proposed passage of a new ordinance raising the licenses on the restaurant and lodging house business. At the Inst meeOng a communication was received by the council asking them to raise the li cense of these classes of business to ?25 per quarter payable in advance, and that every person that takes In more than two boarders or roomers be compelled under the ordinance to pay license. For sometime past sev eral of those engaged in this class of business have refused to pay their monthly license claiming that there were several parties running small rooming and boarding houses that were not asked to pay licence or did not do so. The petition has in view the raising of the license to such a figure that the few women who are trying to make a living taking in a few boarders would be compelled to close up as they could not well af ford to pay such a license. The mat ter on Saturday was referred to the license committee of which, Ben Rybon is chairman and the other members jf the council are members. The com mittee decided to look into the mat ter and wSl report tho latter part of the present week.

A number of the miner who are board ing at these boarding houses have taken up the fight for the widows and are making earnest appeals to the members of the committee to re rcrt adversely on the petition. EHOLERA N United Slates Health Of ficials Assured by Germany of Safety DANGER IN MIGRANTS Watch European Ports Close to Prevent Dreart Plague Crossing Atlantic Berlin, Sept 7. Dr. Nocht, harbor physician for the government of Ham burg, in reply "to inquiries made by the Associated Press concerning chol era, telegraphs as follows: "The trans-shipment of Russian emi grants haing been suspended at Ham burg, further cholera infection is im probable. "The room companion of the first case has a light attack, but otherwise all the emigrants are healthy. "Three emigrants due to sail last Thursday on the steamer Moltke (for New York were landed, and since then have been under medical obser vation. All are healthy. The drink ing water and the sanitary arrange ments here are faultless, and conse quently an epidemic is unlikely. "Single instances naturally, in spite of the greatest care, cannot always be prevented, but no danger exists for sea traffic. I am convinced that all the means for opposing the cholera are in use. We are going to meet the future with tranquility, and we hold that Americans have no grounds for disquietude. "(Signed.) NOCHT." The statement by Dr. Nocht that the emigrants did not sail on the steamer Moltke and are now In quarantine is correct, as is shown by the following telegram received from Hamburg: "About eighty emigrants had travel ed from Russia with a man who died from the cholera. They passed two medical stations on the way, and a portion of the detachment was on boart), and the steamer Moltke was in the lower Elbe when word reached the raacistracy of the death from chol era. The senate was summoned and a representative of the Hamburg American Steamship company was in vited to be present. It was decided to immediately debark the emigrants, which was done. v "On the Pretoria, which sailed Sat urday, were German Italian and Hun garian emigrants, but no Russians 114 in all. At the emigrant station at Veddell are 250. None of them is ill." The opinion is expressed in Berlin that the United States health board has more to fear from emigrants ship ping at Trieste than from German ports, as cholera Is already in Austrian Poland. MRS.
