By the Associated Press.)
Washington, Sept. I.—-President Har
rison reached Washington this morning.
At 11 o'clock the president, Secretary of
the Treasury Foster and Attorney-
General Miller met to consult with
reference to the cholera situation. As
sistant-Secretary Spaulding, of the
treasury department, and Dr. Wyman,
surgeon-general of the marine hospital
service, were also present. After an
hour's deliberation it was decided not to
issue any proclamation now, but to issue
a special circular. Accordingly the fol
lowing circular has been promulgated -
To Collectors of Customs, Medical Officers,
Marine Hospital Service, Foreign Steam
ship Companies, state atd Local Board* of
It having been officially declared that
cholera prevails in various portions of
Russia, Germany, France and at certain
ports of Great Britain, as well as in Asia;
and it having been made to appear that
immigrants in large number are coming
into the United States from the infected
districts aforesaid,an d that they and their
personal effects are liable to introduce
cholera into the United States, and that
vessels occupied by them are a direct
menace to health; and it having been
further shown that under the laws of the
several states quarantine detentions
may be imposed upon these vessels a
sufficient length of time to insure
against the introduction of contagious
diseases, it is hereby ordered that no
vessel from foreign ports carrying im
migrants shall be permitted to
enter into ports of the United
States until said vessel shall have
undergone a quarantine detention of
twenty days (unless such detention is
forbidden by the laws of the state or
regulations made thereunder), and of
such greater number ti days as may be
fixed in each speci//case by the state
authorities. //
This circular is /j take immediate ef

the attornky-genebal'b opinion.
Attorney-General Miller rendered an
opinion to the president this afternoon,
that the surgeon-general of the marine
hospital service and the secretary of the
treasury, with the approval of the presi
dent, have authority to make needful
rules and regulations, not inconsistent
with the state laws, for the quarantine
of ships, with a view to the protection
of the health and lives of the people.
The postmaster general this afternoon
issued an order instructing the superin
tendent of foreign mails to immediately
take such steps as may be necessary to
thoroughly disinfect mails reaching the
United States from foreign porta where
contagioua diseases are said to be pre
vailing. Telegrams have also been sent
to the postmasters at the Canadian bor
der, directing them to consult with the
local health officers and ascertain if
there is necessity for the fumigation of
the mails.
Tonight Dr. Wyman notified the three
leading health officers of Canada of the
action taken today in issuing a circular,
and while no request is made that like
action be taken by Canada, Dr. Wyman
hopes that it will be done. On the
whole, both the president, cabinet and
marine hospital service officers, after
consultation today over the situation,
are of the opinion that every step look

An Alleged Cholera Patient—Moravia
Passengers Doing; Wall.
New York, Sept. I.—Captain Cross,
of the Florence-street station, reports
tonight that he is informed by Dr. H.
Beck, of Irvington street, that he at
tended a man named Epwanig, on|the
fourth floor of No. 95 Orchard street,
and found him manifesting symptoms
of cholera. The man, he said, was a
Russian, and arrived on Sunday, on the
steamer Russia. The board of health
has been notified.
An officer of the board of health vis
ited the sick man, and paid he did not
have cholera, and that his illness was
not serious.
A dispatch from quarantine, received
at 6p. m., says: "Dr. Jenkins has just
returned from Hoffman Island, and the
steamer Moravia. There are no new
cases and no fresh developments, but
one of the crew of the steamboat Hazel
Kirk was taken sick, and either know
ing, Or fearing, he had tha cholera,
jumped overboard and was drowned."
The arrival of steamers .from Europe,
particularly those from infected ports,
that are now at sea, are anxiously
awaited by the quarantine officials.
Today policemen were stationed on
the wharves and along the shores of the
island from Stapleton to New Creek, at
South Beach, a distance of four miles,
to prevent any landing oi small boats
which might have on board any one
wbo had come from any vessel quaran
tined, or any person landing from a for
eign vessel. A ■trie, watch ia being
kept also to prevent emigrants from
Swineburn or Hoffmen island irom
landing at; Fort Wadaworth, 8. I.
The manner in which the circular of
Surgeon General Wyman waa received
in shipping circlea, showed that the
agents were expecting auch an order,
and realized the necessity for it.
Tonight everything at quarantine ia
very quiet.
Search for bacteria in the foul linen
on board of the Moravia, which was
worn by cholera victims, up to tbe pres
ent, haa been fruitless, but further ex
periments will be carried on tomorrow.
A strict guard ia being kept on board
of the Moravia, and ordera have been
given to her captain to fire at any one
endeavoring to go alongaide of the
steamer, unless a health representative.
Although thinga have been very quiet
at the quarantine station today, the
health officer expecta livelier timea to
morrow, and on the following days, aa
several ships are expected in from in
-1 fected porta.
The cholera scare ia rough on fruit
dealers in the Washington market and
elsewhere, for since the eating of unripe
or overripe fruit haa been tabooed by the
board of health, peaches, pears and
plums have been at a discount, and
large dealera say that they have hard
work to find a market for their gooda at
any price. Big train loads of fruit are
coming in from the country every day,
and atocka are accumulating with auch
rapidity, that some of the dealers can
hardly find a place to store their crates,
boxes and barrels.

Cholera Almost Certain to Reach Detroit
Next Spring.
Detroit, Mich., Sept. I.—City Health
Officer Duffield Bays it is almost certain
that Asiatic cholera will reach Detroit
next spring. He said, today, that re
ports from Montreal indicate that little
or no attempts are made to enforce the
inspection of immigrants landing there,
or to prepare for the quarantine of ships
infected with the disease. Dr. Cov
enty, of Windsor, Ont., saya the
province has decided to take no
steps to arrest the disease until it
makes its appearance. A Grand Trunk
train arriving here thia morning, had a
female passenger from Bremen, whose
ticket showed that she left that port
August 20th. The local health board
inspector, finding the woman in ap
parent good health, permitted her to go
on to her destination, Chicago.

ference with the national committee
men , or their representatives, from lowa,
Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, North
Dakota, South Dakota, and Illinois.
Each gentleman detailed the condition
in hia respective state, and usually
closed by submitting a list of
speakers of national reputation
who could contribute to the party
success by visiting bis state. Nearly
every speaker aaid if Cleveland and
Stevenson could be induced to make a
tour through the states, the old-time
Republican majorities would vanish.

looked over, and the prospects of a Dem
ocratic victory in hitherto Republican
states were never brighter. We intend
to perfect organization in every state,
and every inch of ground will be fought.
1 shall make no claims in any
States, but I know that an aggressive
tight will bring some doubtful ones over
to the Democracy. There will be per
fect harmony between the New York
headquarters and those in charge here.
I saw Cleveland Saturday, and he is sur
prisingly familiar with the situation
here. He believes the fight on the tariff
should be pushed, and so it will."
Being asked if the report of Labor
Commissioner Peck would have the
effect of re-opening the fight between
the Hill and Cleveland factions, Dickin
son said:
"You may say, as emphatically as you
wish, that there are, and will be no
divisions in the New York Democracy. I
know whereof I speak, when I say
Senator Hill and Tammany are loyal to
the ticket."

man, and only survivor of the mammoth
ateel steamer. Western Reserve, which
foundered on Tuesday morning, about &•.
o'clock, sixty miles above Whitefiah
point, en route 10 Keeweanaw." The
Western Reserve left, Tuesday, having
onboard as paeaengera Captain Peter
Minch, the owner; wile, children, and
aiater-in-law, besidea tbe regular crew
of twenty-two hands. The rest of the
Bteamer'a short history and iutalitv,iß
best told in tbe words "of Stewart?, the
only survivor of the terrible disaster:
'Everything went welt uniil about
sixty mitea above Whitehall Point, when
the first warning of impendtog danger
was a terrible crash, cuused by the huge
craft breaking in two. She took water
faat, and thb yawl-boats were lowered.
Captain Miuch, family, and officers and
crew, to the number of eeventeen, got
into the wooden yawl, aud the others
took the metalic one. The Reserve sank
in ten minutea, and before she waa out
of sight, the metalic yaw I capsized. The
other boat succeeded in rescuing, two of
the occupantß, and the nineteen sur
vivors started for Whiterish point, eixty
mnea away. Considerable aea blew up,
but the yawl weathered the breakera all
night, and until 7 o'chck the next
morning. When about ten miles from
life-aaving station No. 10. and about a
mile from shore, it capaized."
Stewart aays he aaw none of the oc
cupants afterwards. The ciies of the
■children, the screams of the women and
tho moaning of the men were terrible
for a few moments. He struck for
shore, and after two houra in the water,
landed about ten miles above the sta
tion, and had to walk there before
reaching any one able to render him as
sistance. Search failed to rind a trace
of any other suivivor of the wreck, and
there seems to be no question that all
were drowned.
A dispatch from Deer Park says three
