The Loss to the City Amounts to Millions of Marks. Many Towns in Germany Infected by the Disease — Scattered Cases Throughout Europe—Alarm la England. By the Associated Press. 1 London, Aug. 30.—The Hamburg cor respondent of the Standard telegraphs: Since last night there baa been an enor mous increase in the number of persons attacked by cholera, and who died; 810 new cases and 319 deaths having oc curred during tbe day. The interments yesterday lasted far into the night, the total for the day being 291. A feeling of deep gloom has settled over the city. Tbe loss to the commercial community is reckoned at several million marks daily. The exodus from the city ia un* abated, ard tbe number of foreigners arriving has fallen to the lowest on rec ord. There were only twenty-nine ar rivals at the hotels in the city on Mon day. Tbe weather ia damp and Bultry ; the temperature 84 in the shade, a con dition favorable to the progress of the epidemic. Hamburg, Aug. 30.—Many cases of cholera were reported today in Barm beck, three miles northeast of Hamburg. A renewal of warm weather threatens an increase ot the ravages of the epi demic in the city. On Sunday there were 457 new cases, while yesterday there were only 139. This aeema to confirm the prediction of Dr. Koch that the cholera in thiß city would disappear aa rapidly aa it came. All the theaters have been closed for two weeks on account of cholera. Berlin, Aug. 30.—1t is officially an nounced that cholera is prevalent in six teen places in Scbleswig, and in three places in the district of Luenenburg. At Leipsic one case of the disease has occurred, and one case is reported at Neustadt. The patients at Leipsic and Neustadt both came from Hamburg. The National Zeitung states that there are three distinct cases of Asiatic cholera at Moabite hospital in Berlin. Two patients, it says, came from Ham : burg, while th* tbtrd is ft Berlin what* laborer. During the past twenty-four hours, seventeen new suspects have been taken to the hospital. There was a slight abatement of the cholera epidemic at Altona from Sunday to midnight Monday. The record there abows tw,enty new cases, and eight deatba. At Wandsbeck, for the same period, the record shows seventeen new cases, and nine deaths. Three children and the conductor of a sleeping car attached to a Hamburg train were seized with cholera during the journey today, and removed to the hospital at Ludwigelust. The conduct- wife died from the disease on Sun day. A traveler from Hamburg was stricken with Asiatic choleraat Darmstadt today, and the authorities at once ordered tbe town to be covered with placards con taining special sanitary regulations. The price of disinfectants, especially car bolic acid, haa risen 100 per cent in the city since the appearance of cholera; tbe abnormal increase in price ia placing disinfecting articlea beyond the reach of the poor. The newspapers advocate the gratia distribution of disinfectants. In Weiaaitse, a suburb of this city, a serious riot occurred last night. Among tbe members of a traveling show was a woman whose son yesterday arrived from Hamburg. Fearing he would im port cholera contagion, the police ordered the eon and mother to return to Ham burg. They refused, and after a frantic resistance were removed to the lazaretto. In the meantime, the police ordered the show to be closed. The Bhowmen re fused, and showed fight. A crowd which had gathered sided with the showmen, and a free fight ensued. The police were getting the worst of it, when gens d'armes were summoned. ALARM IN LONDON. Uneasiness Felt Over the Foothold Chol- era Has Gained London, Aug. 30.—Considerable un easiness is felt here because of the knowledge that cholera has certainly obtained a foothold, and in the worst places in which it could appear, not withstanding the quarantine. People from Hamburg have been al lowed to land, and the result is shown by the fact that two new caseß of cholera have appeared in the City road, London. Tbe victima arrived yesterday on the steamship Peregrine from Ham burg. The first auspicious case of the dis ease waa made public today. Ida Sam yan, a 4-year-oid girl, the daughter of Russian Jews, who arrived here from Hamburg on Saturday, waa admitted to the London hospital Sunday, suffer- j ing with symptoms of Asiatic chol era. Inquiry waa made at the hospital today, which met with the statement that she ahowed no im provement. Her parents have not been affected by the disease. Extensive measures have been taken by the Eaat End hoapitals in the event of an extensive outbreak of cholera in London. Wards have been specially set apart for the reception of cholera patients, and the strictest rules have been formulated to keep both the patients and their attendants isolate.!. Tbe sanitary authorities have in no wise relaxed their vigilance. Every day lodging houses are subjected to a rigid inspection, and it may truth fully be said that they were never in better aanitary crndition. The in spection will be kept up as long as there is any danger of cholera. Aa it is a well known fact tbat overripe fruit ia a dangerous source of cholera, there ia a sharp watch kept, to ccc that all fruit is in prime condition. Today the health au thorities made a deßceot upon Covent Garden market, and found many tone of unsound fruit exposed for sale. It was eeized and condemned. Another seaman belonging to the steamer Corona has been seized with cholera at Shields, to which place he went after leaving the chin. Liverpool, Aug. 30.—Four Russian emigrants, who were attacked by chol era here, today, belonged to a party des tined to start for America. The cases have not been confirmed as being of the Asiatic type. THE EPIDEMIC IN FRANCE. lmprov<mep.t In ,the Health of Paris. Hie Plague at Havre. Paris, Aug. 30. —There ia a decided improvement in tbe health of the city, only twenty new cases of cholera and four deaths having occurred during the day. Four deaths from choleraic disorders were reported at Sarcellis today. Three deaths from the eauie causes occurred at St. Oven. Both places are suburbs of Paris. Havre, Aug. 30.—There were reported yesterday in thiß city 71 new cases of cholera and 17 deaths. Beginning September 3d, the steam ers of the general trans-Atlantic lines will sail for and arrive at Cherbourg in stead of at Uavre. Tbe change is only temporary and made so the passengers will not be subjected to qaarantine at New York. South American Rumors. Panama, Aug. 39.—1t is reported that Asiatic cholera exists in Venezuela. The long-continued rebellion has caused sanitary regulations to be entirely neg lected. The federal authorities of Colombia have issued orders closing their Atlan tic porta to vessels from all cholera-in fected ports. The Epidemic at Antwerp. Antwerp, Aug. 30.—Ten persons suf fering from cholera were admitted to the hospital today. One of the patients subsequently d ; .ed. Twenty-two new cases of cholera and four deaths since yesterday.

Brussels, Aug. 30.—One death from a doubtful case of Asiatic cholera occurred here today. OFFICIAL INFORMATION. Not Much Cholera News Kecelved at Washington. Washington, Aug. 30.—The official information of cholera in Europe, re ceived at Washington today, was very meager, and confined to one dispatch from tbe consul at Bremen. He cabled tbat there ia no Asiatic cholera in the city, and that every precaution is being taken to prevent it. The treas ury officials have received aa surancea of the effectiveness of the national and state quarantine ser vice, and they cay the department has done all it can do to prevent cholera from gaining admission into the United States. A cordon of inspection and in fection is being rapidly established on the seabord from Louisiana to Maine, and along the Canadian and Mexican frontiers. A circular on the subject waa issued by Acting Secretary Spaulding thia after noon to collectors of customs and oth eia. Collectors of customs on the Cana dian and Mexican frontiers are instruct ed to erersiee. special vigilance in the examination of immigrants and their ef fects, and co-operr.te with the officers of the marine hospital service and local health officers in such action aa they may deem advisable to prevent the in troduction of cholera into the United States. At the request of Collector Hopkins, of Detroit, Surveyor-General Wyman has appointed Dr. Mulhearn special in spector at that place, to assist the local authorities in examining immigrants and baggage from Canada. If it be found necessary, inspectors will also be appointed at Sault Ste. Marie, Port Huron, and other lake ports, to assist in preventing the introduction of cholera. The collectors of customs at Ogdensburg, New York, Ind Milford, Maine, have been re • quested to nominate inspectors to assist in tbe inspection and disinfection of immigrants at those points. Should it be necessary at the many immigrant stations on the north, medical inspector will be ata tioned to assist the regular immigrant inspectors. In case of the establishment of an absolute quarantine, the cordon can be drawn taut within an hour by telegraph from the secretary, and the United States will be shut out from the world on the eaat. Hamburg. Emigrants. Philadelphia, Aug. 30.—The steam ship British Princess, from Liverpool, with 600 immigrants aboard, 260 of whom are from Hamburg, is still detained at the quarantine station. The work of disinfecting is completed, but, although there is no sickness aboard the steamship, she will be de tained at quarantine until the board of health is satisfied that all danger of cholera is passed. A LOS ANGELES HARBOR. The New Survey About to Be Commenced. A Work of Greatest Interest to This Section. Excitement Over the McWhirter Mur der Continues.

San Francisco, Aug. 30.—Colonel Craighill, at the head of the govern ment corps of engineers, will reach San Francisco tomorrow, in company with a staff of aesißtantß. The party will pro ceed at once to Lob Angeles, and make surveys for a harbor on tbe coast oppo site that city. The survey made by the government commission some time ago resulted in the recommendation that the harbor of San Pedro be improved, but after the report of the commission was made, bo many adverse criticisms were made upon it, and the remonstrances of the Angelefioa were so pronounced, that another survey was deemed expedient. In speaking of the presence of Colonel Craighill, William 11. Mills remarked that no recent work initiated by the government was of greater interest than that of securing a safe and accessible harbor for Los Angeles. "The whole Btate is interested in tbe matter," said Mr. Mills. "Every meas ure that tends to bring trade and peo ple to any part of California should be advocated by every citizen. "The people living south of Tehachipe aro, of course, especially interested, be cause a good harbor at Los Angeles means a great volume of business in an importing way, and also tbe opening of new markets for the products of that section of tbe Btate. "It is probable that the present sur vey will cover all the available shore lino about Santa Monica and San Pedro, and it is to be hoped that it will result in the speedy commencement of the construction of a harbor."

A Deputy United BtatesjCollector Seized by Mexicans. Tucson, Ariz., Aug. 30. —A Star spe cial from La Nora Bays: Deputy United States Collector C. D. Reppy, of La Nora, went across tbe line, and waa im mediately arrested by Mexicana and taken to the town of Santa Cruz. Mra. Reppy waa with her husband, and was told to go home.

Tacoma, Waßh., Aug. 30.—Word was received here today that the Transcon tinental association bad decided that the Northern Pacific railroad could not carry free the Washington exhibit to the World's fair, under tbe inter-state commerce law and the association rules. This will cost tbe state about $45,000 in freight, and will embarrass tbe commis sion, tbey having calculated on the ex hibit going free, and spending the full $100,000 in exhibita. There will be 140 carloads of material for the building, before the exhibit proper begins to go. Decision Sustained. San Fbancisco, Aug. 30. —The su preme court has sustained the decision of the superior court in the case of J. H. Smith, of Loa Angeles, against D. D.

NO CLEW IN SIGHT. The McWhirter Murder at Fresno Still Shrouded iv Mystery. Fkesno, Cal., Aug. 30.—The mystery surrounding the assassination of L. B. McWhirter is still impenetrable. No new developments have occurred, and the people are beginning to feel some what anxious, fearing the assassins may be able to make their escape. The friends of the deceased are determined to spare no expense in hunting them, down, and the reward fund was today augmented by $1000. More contribu tions will be made. Tbe rewards will probably aggregate $15,000. There is good reason to believe tbat a man with a gunshot wound in the hand was ar rested Monday, and is now in jail. They deny in the sheriff's oflice that Buch an arrest has been made, and an inspec tion of the jail register beara them out in this assertion. It is quite cer tain, however, that they would not acknowledge tbat the assassin bad been captured, were eunh the case, for fear the attempt would bs made to lynch him. Several persons who passed the jail Monday night say it was guarded. The indignation of the people has not subsided, and there is talk of organizing a vigilance committea to drive the criminal element out of town. The number of theories have dwindled to two, the first that McWhirter's death was the reeult of political animosities he aroused ; the second that some pri vate enemy, known only to McWhirter and perhaps a few others, killed him. The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock from the family residence, and is expected to be a. larj<e one. The coroner's inquest will be held tomorrow afternoon. A RIOT IMMINENT.
