Under date of August 24th, the for

of the investigation commenced by
the board of health concerning
the recent epidemic of cholera in
the department of the Seine, France.
The note says it is manifest that the

the cases examined were solely due to
the use of Seine water of bad quality,
and at present the sanitary situation
has improved to such a degree tbat all
danger may be considered to be averted.

New York, Aug. 29.—A meeting be

representatives of all the foreign steam

Health Officer Jenkins read orders from
the hoard of health, providing tbat all

cholera, and those carrying passengers

Before leaving quarantine, vessels shall

Hamburg, Aug. 29.—Official cholera
statistics place the number of new csees
of the disease reported on Saturday at
435, and the number of deaths at 145;
on Sunday and up to noon today, 148
new cases and 72 deaths are reported.
The disease appears to be abating in
several quarters of tbe city. There was
much less demand for ambulances dur
ing the night. The city yesterday was
strikingly quiet. So small has become
traffic on the tramways, that the com
panies are restricting the service.
In Altona 77 new cases of cholera and
33 deaths from the disease were reported
from noon Saturday up to noon today.
Owing to the outbreak of the disease
in the prieon, minor offenders, to the
number of 150, have been released.
The decrease in the disease in Ham
burg, and in Altona, is most noticeable
since midnight last night.
Isolated cases are reported from Schiff
beck, Bergedorff, Elmshorn, and Ueter
sen, suburbs of Hamburg. At Wands
beck, three miles northeast of Hamburg,
a favorite summer resort of merchants
of the city, there were nine cases of the
disease and five deaths up to Saturday
Berlin, Aug. 29.—Fifteen cases of
cholera are reported tonight, but none
of these of the Asiatic type. In the dis
tricts of the city inhabited by working
people, energetic measures are being
taken to keep them cleansed and disin
fected. Great complaints are being
made as to the laxity of tbe supervision
exercised over travelers arriving here
from Hamburg.
Dr. Harris Graham, an American
physician, who has had a wide experi

London, Aug. 29.—There is no doubt
Great Britain is having a visitation
from the dread scourge which has been
devastating Europe. From Gravesend,
Edinburgh, Dundee and various other
places in England, Scotland and Wales,
come reports of deaths from cholera,
showing that the officials have not
been able to keep it out of
the country, aj.d now, this

a person has died from Asiatic
cholera at Bolton, a large manufactur

officials of Middlesborough for tbe land
ing Of the crew from the steamer Gero
na, from Hamburg, promises to have
most serious results. As announced in
these dispatches, the vessel wbb placed
in quarantine after one of her crew had
been attacked by cholera, but in the
meantime a number of the ship's
company bad departed for their homes.
Six of them went to Dundee, where they
reside, while another of them went to
Aberdeen. Among those who went to
Dundee was Walker, the engineer of
Gerona. Shortly after his arrival there,
he waß taken sick and died in a few
hours. The physician who attended
him says there is no doubt that his
death was due to cholera. When
it became known that Walker
was dead, tho greatest excitement
prevailed in Dundee, and also in
Aberdeen where the seventh member
of the crew ashore had gone. Measures
were taken by the health officers to iso
late the remaining members of the crew
in Dundee, md the one in Aberdeen
until all danger qf their spreading con
tagion might be passed. The residents
of the places, however, believe the men
were allowed to go about the towns long
enough to spread the disease, if they
carried the infection, and there is wide
spread anxiety prevalent in every quar
ter of the towns. An extraordinary
watch will be kept in both places for the
appearance of choleraic disorders.

By the Associated Presc]
New York, Aug. 29.—John L. Sulli
van received a great reception on his
arrival at the Flatbush avenue theater
today from his training quarters. The
train was half an hour late, but that cut
no figure with the enthusiastic crowd
waiting. To avoid the crowd, Sullivan
hurried through a private exit, followed
by an admiring crowd, who cheered him
to the echo. With the assistance of two
mounted policemen, who piloted him
through the crowd, he was escorted to a
carriage, and driven rapidly to Phil
Casey's handball court. Sullivan le
tired to a private room and refused to
sco anybody. A surging mob was out
side tho court.
A great crowd crushed itself into the
Clermont-avenne rink, in Brooklyn, to
night, to witness the reception tendered
to Sullivan. Police bobbed up every
where, and there was the best of
order. The elite of the aportinn
fraternity was there toeee what
Sullivan looked like. Charley
Johnson was Etniling and happy,
apparently looking earnestly forward lor
success. In the center of the immense
rink was pitched a twenty-four-foot
ring, and around it the multitude
Burged. There were half a dozen bouts,
in which some local fighters showed
themselves, and shortly before 10o'clock
the man of the evening appeared. Pan
demonium reigned. Juck Ashton fol
lowed the champion.
A great floral harp on which was in
scribed: "John L. Sullivan, champion
of the world," was handed into the ring,
and aa Sullivan bowed, the cheering
grew louder. There were cries of
'•speech," and the big fellow said: "I
thank you for your hearty applause,
and appreciate it. I believe I have the
good will of the people here this even
ing, on my last appearance before my
last fight. That fight will decide
whether I am the John L. Sullivan, or
John L. Sullivan, who has passed by. I
am not going to Bpeak disparaging"lv of
Mr. Corbett. All I will say islam most
yA&d to appear here. I have deceived
you once, but let by-gones be by-gones.
I am going to stop speaking now and
you will nest hear from me on the 7th
of September."
Sullivan's words were punctuated by
the wildest yelling. Then there were
shouts for Phil Casey, and that modest
gonrleman was dragged into the ring.
There appeared to be a good deal of
flesh r>n Sullivan as he eat in hia corner.
Hie eyes were bright and flashing, and
hia face hardened and tanned. His
shoulders were in splendid condition,
and his muscles showed excellently.
There appeared, however, to be lots of
fat over hiß atomach and on his back. It
is very strange if he does not weigh in
the vicinity of 220 pounds.
He perspired very freely when he
sparred three rounds with Jack Ashton,
but showed the agility of a cat as he
went around the ring. His actions
were like lightning. He wore a con
fident, hardened air that could not be
mistaken. He went at Aahton very
hard, tapping him at Bhort intervals
with his left, and once with his right.
Although Ashton only touched the
champion on the neck and shoulders,
he was very tired at the end of each
round. It was remarked that Sullivan
puffed a good deal after the finish of
eacft round ; the wrinkle of fat over his
waist heaved in and out to no smali de
gree. Still his admirers leel that he is
in prime condition. His flesh ia well
colored, and hia striking force ia as
marveloua as ever. Hia legs are in the
beat of fotm.
Pompadour Jim Shows Off Si la Shapely
Limbs and Muscles.
New York, Aug. 29.—Corbett showed
his Ehapely limba and muscles to a
crowd of 5000 admirers at Madison
Square garden this evening. The crowd
was good-natured and cheerfully ac
cepted the slightest entertainment
afforded them, until Corbett appeared.
There were some preliminary bouts to
whet the appetites of the audience. It
was 10:06 when Steve O'Donnell, mas
ter of ceremonies, introduced Corbett,
amid great cheers. He was accompa
nied by John McVay of Philadelphia,
who was to oppose him. The young
Californian walked from his dressing
quarters to tbe ring, while cheer after
cheer went up. He eprang lightly up
the steps and bowed to the assembled
multitude. •
Corbett wore green stockings, white
pants and a green belt. Before he had
taken hia seat three cheers were given
for him. Then low criticisms on the
Californian's condition were heard. In
deed, he did not look as if much were
the matter with him.
There was a pretty exhibition of box
ing between Corbett and McVay. Mc-
Vay, however, was too beefy and alto
gether too slow for the star of tbe even
ing. Things livened up more in the
bout between Corbett and his boxing
partner, Jim Daly, Though Daly is not
heavy enough for Corbett, there was
some pretty quick fignting, and Corbett
had a chance to show his nimbleness.
His remarkably quick and clean science
urged the spectators up to the shouting
point. Corbett made a host of friends
by his clever methods and hie evident
splendid condition.
A Lively Bow Between Jim Corbett and
Domiulck McCaffrey.
New York, Aug. 29.—There was a hot
time in the private office of the Madison
Square garden, here, this morning, when
Jameß J. Corbett and bia manager, Wni.
A. Brady, met there to arrange with
Dominies: McCaffrey, boxing instructor
of the Manhattan Athletic cinb, for a
match in the manly art of self defense.
Corbett became so enraged at the repre
sentative oi the Manhattan man that he
stated in the most emphatic language
that if his won!d-bo antagonist did not
stop talking, he would throw him out of
tbe window. Captain Van Schack, of
the Manhattan club, was McCaffrey's
advisor. The upshot of it all was that
no match was arranged, and the two
principals separated " with muah bad
blood between them.
Mr. McCaffrey, in a conversation
later, declared that Corbett had failed
to make gocd bis proposition to stop
him in four rounds for a purse of $5000.
That was the original proposition, and
the "big 'tin" had simply backed down
when he appeared ready to accept the
proposition for a four-round go, on the
terms mentioned at the Manhattan
Athletic club house. He said that when
Corbett threatened to throw him out of
tbe window, he told him that he had
better try it; that he was ready to de
fend himself.
The scene was a very dramatic one,
and it looked at ons time as if the four
rounds might be fought oat on the spot,
dispensing with the preliminary ar
rangements and purse.
Corbett said he proposed to name tbe
match in the place there was the most
money, either before any liberal athletic
club, or in the Manhattan Athletic club
house. He said *c would agree to the
terms to fight and stop his man in that
time for a purse of $6000, but he wished
to have the decision in caee he had the
best of it in four rounds, whether he
stopped McCaffrey or not. In other
words, he would donate $5000 to Mc-
Caffrey in caee he did not knock him
out in four rounds, but asked that a
purse of $5000 be mode up for tbe man
who got the better cf the fight, whether
a knock-out or net. Tbis McCaffrev
would not listen to. He insisted on
fighting in the Manhattan Athletic club,
and that it should be a knock out in
four rouuds or nothing.

Citizens or Fresno Greatly Excited Over
the Murder—S 10,000 Offered for
the Arrest and Conviction
of the As>asslns>
Fbssno, Cal., Aug. 29.—Closer uquiry
into the circumstances surrounding the
death of L. B. McWhirter, is believed
to dispose completely of the burglary
theory. Unless good proof can be
shown that he had a deadly private
enemy, the conclusion is general that
his death was the result of the political
animosities he had aroused. The prepa
rations for the critno were made In the
most bold and careless manner. There
is no doubt that there were two
aseassins. They made as much
noise as possible without arousing
the whole neighborhood, to attract the
attention of the inmates of the bouse.
Tbey knocked out two big board fence
rails with a hammer, and, judging from
the marks, must have struck some hard
blows. One of tbe clubs lound had a
piece of clothes line tied around it, in
order to better fasten it. A nail was
driven through the line into the wood.
Two pistols were found, both Colt's, of
41 caliber. Oue was improved, and be
longed to McWhirter; the other was old
style, and belonged to tbe assassin. Tbe
latter had the number scratched out.
McWhirter's life was insured for
$00,000, nearly all in his wife's name.
There is great excitement here over the
affair, and every attempt is being made
to apprehend the murderers.
Citizens met this afternoon and con
tributed $10,000 to be paid for the ar
rest and conviction of the assassins.
There was a rumor that there was a
man arrested this evening, with a
wound in the hand. Thia was denied at
the ehsriff's office. Feeling is very high,
and _if the assassins are caught, it iB
poesible an attempt to iynch them will
be made. A number of ner?ons who
were incautious enough to exolt at Mc-
Whirter's death, are being closely
A Change of Opinion in the Lizzie Bor
den Case.
Fall Riveb, Mass., Aug. 29.—The
testimony brought cut in the Lizzie
Borden hearing, today, caueed a change
of opinion among her friends, who here
tofore stoutly maintained her innocence.
They consider the strongest evidence
against her to be that of Mrs. Addie
Churchill, a neighbor, whom she has
known and loved since childhood. Mrs.
Churchill stated positively that Mrs.
Borden's room door was open when she
and Bridget Sullivan first discovered the
body of the murdered woman. It has
already been stated that Lizzie Borden
was in the hallway, near the open door,
when Bridget Sullivan onened the
front door, at 1.35 o'clock.
Again, Mrs. Churchill stated posi
tively that Lizzie told her Mrs.
Borden had received a note to call on a
sick friend, but it has not yet been
proven that any person in the city or
elsewhere sent such a note, or that Mrs.
Borden left the house at any time dur
ing the day. Like all the rest of the
witnesses for tbe government, she failed
to find any traces of blood on Miss Liz
zie's clothing or person. During the
testimony the prisoner bit her lip,
flushed, and bent toward Attorney
Adams. Toe testimony also of E. H.
Pence, a drug clerk, Frank Kilroy, a
Harvard medical student, and Fred
Hart, an assistant drug clerk, all of
whom were in Smith's drug store when
Lizzie was there, seems very damaging
to the defendant.
