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

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

and a free fight ensued. The police
were getting the worst of it, when gens
d'armes were summoned.
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.

lowed to land, and the result is shown
by the fact that two new caseß of
cholera have appeared in the City road,

Not Much Cholera News Kecelved at
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

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

will also be appointed at

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.

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."

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.

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.
