Dr. Jenkins Thinks He Has a Head of His Own. The President's Cholera Circu lar Set at Naught So Far as It Concerns Quarantine at the Port of New York. The Health Officer Does Not Proposo to Be Bound by the Twenty-Day Limit—Cholera News From Abroad. :' » By the Associated Press.] New York, Sept. 2. —There seems to be a probability of a clash of authority arising between the federal government and the state authorities, as represented by Dr. Jenkins. The recent order of tbe president forbids any vessels carry ing immigrants to enter the port until after twenty days' quarantine. Dr. Jenkins said ho would use his discretion about keeping the vessel in quarantine twenty days. If he saw fit he would quarantine the vessel more than twenty days, or less. He claimed he had full authority, and that the president's or der could not aifect him or cause him to do otherwise than as his judgment in duced him. "I do not want to be understood as defying the chief executive," said Dr. Jenkins. "I shall do all in my power to assist the national authorities to keep cholera from entering the country, but I certainly think I have a right, by virtue of the authority delegated to me as health officer of this port, to decide on the number of days that a ship shall be kept in quarantine. I shall decide the question in tbe case of each ship, ac cording to the sanitary conditions pre vailing on board at the time of her ar rival here." Collector Hendricks said he did not think Dr. Jenkins would bring on a conflict between the federal and state authorities. If such a thing should arise, federal power would prevail. No vessel can land passengers or a cargo until the vessel has entered at the cus tom house, and Collector Hendricks will act according to the instructions of the Washington authorities. JENKINS* ORDERS OVERRIDDEN. The first symptom of overriding Dr. Jenkins' orders was when the custom house officers were withdrawn from the steamer City of Berlin, shortly after her arrival in the early afternoon. The withdrawal of the federal officers nat ' urally prevented the declarations of the cabin passengers from being made, all of whom Dr. Jenkins intended should be allowed to land today, in the same manner as those of the Gallia and Lahn on the previous days. There is some discussion over the matter at quaran tine, but in Dr. Jenkins' absence, noth ing further is known. ANOTHER STEAMER STOFPED. At 4 o'clock the Thingvalla steamer Island, which arrived this afternoon, was given her clearance by Dr. Tall madge. She arrived from the ports of Copenhagen, Christiania and Cbris tiansland, with 58 cabin and 577 steer age passengers. The latter are all Scandinavians, and have not been near any infected port; so after fumigation on board the vessel, she was allowed to proceed. At 5:45 she returned, having only reached as far toward dock as Lib erty island, where she was stopped by a revenue cutter and returned to quaran tine. Dr. Jenkins was still absent, and shortly before his return to quarantine, the revenue cutter returned to quaran tine and released the leland, and placed officers on board of the Gallia, with or ders to allow the cabin passengers to de clare their baggage, and land in a barge tbat would be sent down tonight. The rescinding of the port collector's order was done, report said, owing to a communication from Assistant Secretary Spaulding to that effect. There was, of course, great dismay at the idea of be ing subject to twenty days' quarantine as specified by the presidential circular, and much discussion as to the action Dr, Jenkins would have taken had tbe Island and Gallia not been released. DR. JENKINS' POSITION. Dr. Jenkins said to a representative of tbe Associated Press, having once grant ed a vessel pratique, he should not grant her a second, and if the collector chose to return vessels to quarantine for twenty days, it was the duty of the gen eral government to look after them and take charge of them. They bad nothing more to do with him. He said be thought, however, the circular of tbe president was misconceived by tbe col lector and many others. It specially stated that it was not to conflict with the state regulations, and it was chiefly meant for certain ports where there is no state authority, and where the ports are under the charge of the marine hospital force. NO CHOLERA IN SIGHT. A report from the Moravia late this afternoon stated that beyond doubt the health of all on board was excellent. There has been no sickness of any na ture on the vessel since she arrived. Up to the present the efforts of Dr. Byron, to obtain bacteria from portions of the foul linen taken from the infected steamer Moravia, have been unsuccess ful. * Joseph Etuanize, reported last night as a cholera patient, is not afflicted with that disease. His illness was due to over-feeding, after being nearly starved in Russia. He is all right this morning. ALL EYES TURNED SEAWARD. Ab the situation is now, the eyes of the quarantine officials are constantly turned seaward, awaiting the arrival of the Normandia and Stubbenhuk, both from Hamburg; the Rugia, from Havre, and La Bourgogne, from tbe same port. Several other big mail steamers are also due tonight and tomorrow from English ports. They are also regarded with bus picion. It ia feared the four vessels from Hamburg and Havre will have cholera on board. The steamer Veendam, from Rotter •lain, baa been released from quaran tine. The North German Lloyd steamers, like most of the other lines, will not handle steerage passengers. » WASHINGTON AUTHORITIES. They Decline to Take Issne With Health Officer Jenkins. Washington, Sept. 2.—A copy of the New York dispatch containing Dr. Jen kins's views with respect to the 20-days' quarantine order, was shown President Harrison this afternoon. He declined, however, to say anything in regard to the matter, for publication. Secretary Charles Foster was not inclined to com ment very extensively on what Dr. Jen kins had to say. It is his opinion, how ever, that the doctor had not read the circular very carefully, for he said it was expressly drawn to reserve his (the doctor's) power in tbe premises. BUSY OFFICIALS. Assistant Secretary Spaulding was busy today ; for he is the official of the treasury department who has direct charge of the matters relating to immi gration. There were many telegrams .from individuals and steamship com panies interested in the twenty-day cir cular issued yesterday, The chief ques tion asked was as to the application of the quarantine restrictions in the cases of steamers having both cabin and steerage passengers. The assistant sec retary explained to a reporter that in no case . where steamers brought both immigrant and cabin passengers the latter will be detained at quarantine long enough to assure the quarantine officers that there is no dan ger of their introducing the cholera, then they will be allowed to land. The health officer would have discretion in tb« matter. The department received a dispatch from a New York shipping company, asking whether London comes within the twenty days' quarantine circular; whether freight boats will be quaran tined when they have cabin passengers. Secretary Foster replied that vessels not carrying immigrants will not necessarily be detained twenty days, but all vessels from foreign ports will be held long enough to assure the health officers that there iB no danger of the introduction of cholera. Secretary Foster has received a tele gram from Collector Hendricks, at New York, asking if be should detain vessels in quarantine that had not entered, but ware passed by tbe health officer, until special instructions were received from the department, and will such detention apply to cabin passengers? The assis tant secretary directed a reply to be made that vessels afloat at the date of the circular excepted, any vessels within the exception, and passing quar antine, will be entered in tbe absence of information received after they pass the health officers, that their entrance is l!**Vy to introdnJsa cholera. Today the collector of customs at De troit telegraphed to the treasury depart ment asking whether the quarantine circular applied to immigrants from Quebec and Montreal. He was in formed, in reply, that they were not subject to its provisions, but immi grants from the two places named, should be detained until all danger had passed. FUMIHATION OF MAILS. The postoffice department has re ceived a number of replies to telegrams sent yesterday to postmasters on tbe Canadian frontier, directing them to confer with the local health officers and report at once what, if any, precaution ary measures were necessary to be taken with mailß received from Canada, in order to guard against the introduction of cholera. Postmaster Geutsch, of Buffalo, an swered: '"Health officer advises imme diate preparation for disinfecting mails from Canada, by perforating letters and by dry heat" Postmaster fiance, of Detroit: "After consultation with the health officer, I find it unnecessary to take steps disin fecting mail from Canada, as cholera has not made its appearance there." Postmaster Sexton, of Chicago, said that the health officers advised fumi gation by sulphur or steam. The health officers at Port Huron, Micb., and Troy, N. V., also advise fumigation of the mails. Postmaster-General Wanamaker this afternoon sent a telegram to the Cana dian postmaster-general asking what precautions were being taken iv Canada, and if fumigation of tbe mails was con sidered necessary. TUB CORDON STRENGTHENED • The quarantine cordon waa addition ally strengthened today by the appoint ment of two medical inspectors at Port Huron, Michigan, and one at Pembina, N. D, The officials of the war department feel the necessity of having every army post in the country put in such a good sanitary condition that the disease, if introduced, shall not spread on account of bad hygienic conditions. To bring about the desired result, Adjutant-General Will iams today sent to each department commander and to each independent post in tbe country, certain memoranda submitted by the surgeon-general, and approved by the secretary of war, relat ing to cholera precautions. BURKE NOT CULPABLE. It is very evident, from the talk of the officials of the state department, that tbey do not contemplate taking any action regarding the complaints against Charles H. Burke, vice-consul at Ham burg, who issued a clean bill of health to the steamer Moravia. They do not believe that Burke was culpably negli gent of duty, when on the same day he issued a clean bill of health to the steamer, the city authorities did like wise. CONSULAB REPORTS. The cablegrams received by the state department, today, in relation to cholera, include one from tbe consul at Stettin, who cabled as follows: "Cholera at Greifewald; firßt case in Pomerania; a sailor from Hamburg." Another was from the consul at Bre men, who cables: "No cholera in Bre men yet. Every sanitary precaution, with all passengers, taken." The building boom haa caused the re moval of H. A.

London, Sept. 2.—[Copyright, 1892, by the New York Associated Press.] — President Harrison's circular relative to the quarantining of vessels carrying immigrants finds general approval, and even admiration, here. It arouses some feeling of envy, also, that the American law enables the government to take such prompt and thorough steps to stop the importation of cholera. The British government, in cooping up immigrants at Gravesend and elsewhere, is acting illegally, and will be obliged to ask parliament to pass a retroactive act, legalizing what they have done. It is feared one result of President Harrison's measure will be to stop the stream of alien emi gration to America and make England the permanent location of many families who intended to seek new homes across the water. Tbe prolonged quarantine declared by the United States, is not regarded as in anywise hostile to England, bat, with a view to counter-act its undoubted tendency to throw the crowd of inlected immigrants into Great Britain, the officials of both boards urge the government to give immediate assent to the prohibition of landing immigrants from all infected ports. In the absence of an act em powering such measures, it is held that the privy council could issue an edict. Gladstone and Fowler, secretary of state for war, were today communicat ing with Sir Charles Russell, attorney general, and Rigby, solicitor-general, to obtain their advice with regard to means to meet the legal difficulties. An Associated Press representative who has interviewed the agents of the leading steamship companies, finds the concensus of opinion to be that the president's circular is needlessly severe. ■ Despite the circular, however, some ves sels are certain to take a full comple ment of emigrants. Several steamship companies now refuse to book even firet and second-class passengers sailing from German and other continental ports, but the same companies, having thous ands of steerage passengers already booked, are in a qrandary how tinue service, having contracted to pro vide for booked emigrants until they are landed at the port of destination. , In the meantime, tbe cholera in Great Britain seems to be fairly mastered. The physician of the local government board told an Associated Press repre sentative, today, that the outlook was entirely satisfactory. He said that about thirty cases, at all points in Great Britain, had been dealt with during the last ten days. There was no single in stance of the disease spreading beyond the person first attacked. The fact is palpable to everybody that tbe public has become utterly unconcerned, and imbued with the conviction that the disease will not be allowed to spread, and that it will never assume an epi demic form. The physicians of the city will'dis cuss the proposal of tbe establishment of an international cholera commission, to report on the origin of the plague, its line of march through the different countries where it made its appearance, and the various methods of treatment employed in the cases of persons stricken with the disease. THE SCOURGE IN EUROPE. A Gloomy Festal Day In Hamburg—Pro gress of the Plague. Hamburg, Sept. 2.—The anniversary of the victory of Sedan, a day usually marked by great public rejoicings, passed here in the gloomiest manner. Except for decorations seen on the postofßce and railway stations, not a flag was dis played. The churches were filled with people praying that the cholera epidemic might cease. Berlin, Sept. I.—-No fresh case of cholera was developed here during tbe past twenty-four hours. The precau tions and preparations against a possi ble choleraic outbreak, however, are not relaxed. Comparisons of the Hamburg death rate figures for different days, show that of those persons attacked with cholera, three days ago, one of two died, while now only one out of five dies. Statistics of the imperial board of health show that 028 new caseß of cholera and 102 deaths occurred at Hamburg yesterday. In Altona there were 26 new cases and 3 deaths. On tbe island of Wilhelms burg in the river Elbe, opposite Ham burg, three were 10 new cases and 3 deaths; 18 cases and 7 deaths at Schles wig; 3 cases and 4 deaths in Tuenem burg; 5 cases and 2 deaths in Magde burg ; 5 eases and 2 deaths in Mecklen burg-Schwerin; 1 case and I death in Berlin. The authorities today announce that Russian emigrants would no longer be permitted in Germany. Paris, Sept. 2.—Cholera has made its appearance in Dieppe. Two cases of the disease and one death were reported there today. In Rouen, twenty-six fresh cases of cholera and three deaths from the disease occurred today. The cholerine epidemic shows a slight increase. At the Hotel Dieu, today, eleven new cases were received, and two deaths occurred, while the hospital of St. Antoine reports six new cases and three deaths. Official cholera figures show fifteen new cases and three deaths yesterday in this city. The garrison at Luneville, a town twenty-two miles from Nancy, is suffer ing from an epidemic of typhoid dysen tary. One hundred soldiers are pros trated with the disease, and several deaths have occurred. Havre, Sept. 2.—There were fifty cases of cholera and fifteen deaths yes terday. Antwerp, Sept. 2—Seven cases of cholera, and three deaths from the dis ease, were reported today in the town of Boom, ten miles south of this city. St. Petersburg. Sept. 2. -The official returns of the empire for August 3lßt are as follows: New cases, 2275; deaths, 2722. This is an increase of 414 new cases and 193 deaths over the previous date. It is known that these figures are incomplete, many small towns not being heard from. London, Sept. 2.—Another of the Rus sians stricken with cholera died today. It is reported that a woman died of cholera at Macclesfield, near Man chester. PRICE FIVE CENTS. THE OLD KENTUCKY HOME Adlai Stevenson Visit* His Birthplace. Thirty Thousand People Hear Him Speak. He Handles The Tariff and Force Bill Without Gloves. Ills Remarks Received With the Wild e»t EnthnaUsm -The Democratic Campaign Management In lUln.lis. By the Associated Press. 1 Hjsrndon, Ky., Sept. 2.—lt was a royal welcome that Hon. Adlai E. Stevenson received here today, tha home of hia birth. There were 30,000 people present from all parts of Western Kentucky and Tennessee, and fully one-tbird of them grasped the guest by the hand. After a brief breathing Bpell be partook of a barbecue and stepped into a wagon, within a few yards of th« very spot on which he waa born. Wben he was allowed to begin talking, and after a few preliminary remarks about his old Kentucky home, he jumped into politics, and the eenti meuts he expressed made the Ken tuckians and Tenneeseeans shout until the woods rang. He confined himself largely to the tariff and force bill, and no words were minced in denouncing the latter. He spoke for half an hour, and was followed by Hon. James I). McKenzie and Congressman Ellis. Mr. Stevenson will remain over night at Herndon, and will take tha morning train for St. Louis. WESTERN DEMOCRATS. Illinois Well Organized-Probable Fd* elon In the Dakutag. Chicago, Sept. 2.—The western head quarters of the national Democratic campaign committee will be in charge of Hon. Ben T. Cable, national committeeman from Illinois This* was settled by the committee, and Cable formally look possession of the headquarters today. The national committee decided that an advisory committee of Illinois Democrats shall be appointed to assist Cable by coun sel. The principal fight in the state is to be made upon the local issue of a compulsory Bchool law, and it ie conjectured tbat the art virorv committee to be appointed to assist Cable will con tain certain German Lutherans. The question of endorsing fusion with the People's party in the two Oakotas is still unsettled. If this ia done, many Democrats insist that it will surely sweep these two states. The chief trouble seeniß to be that the Peo ple's party wants moßtof the offices, but the Democrats will probabiv make the chief point on an agreement that the electoral vote Bhall be cast for Weaver for president and Stevenson for vice president. SAN DIEGO COURTS. Connty Clerk Gang* way's Trial—Tha Na tional City Farce. San Diego, Sept. 2.—The trial of County Clerk Gassaway on charges of misconduct in office, was resumed to day. All efforts to trace the where abouts of the book, containing tbe rec ords of government land business, are so far unavailing. Evidence waa elicited to show that Us-, seaway knew of the existence of a contract pre pared by one of his deputies, which all employes were required to sign, where by they bound themselves to pay a per centage of their wages to Gassaway, as a bonus for employment. The contract was so drawn as to appear to be mereiy a voluntary offering to aid in de fraying campaign expenses. A letter forwarded'by District Attorney Jones to Gassaway, informing him that certain fees which he was appropriating to his own use should be turned over to the county, has disappeared, but a letter preES copy of the same was in troduced by the prosecution. Gassaway failed to conform to tbe advice, continu ing to retain fees. The trial will last for some days. The sensational peace-bond case in which prominent citizens of National City were arreßted for aliened dis turbance of the peace of "Charles Lamb, came to a farcical end to day. Lamb iB the man who was charged with improper conduct towards little girls, and who was ordered by his fellow townsmen to leave town be fore daylight on August 23d, on pain of arrest or a possible coat of tar and feathers. After his release on bail he tried to turn the tables on bis accusers by causing their arrest. Suits were aiso brought against them by Lamb's father and mother for $50,000 each. In the preliminary examination on the peace bond charge, the prosecut ing witness failed to appear, and a bench warrant failed to reach him; therefore the defendants were all dis charged. The Preaident Start* for Loon Lake. Washington, Sept. 2.—President Har rison left Washington at 7 o'clock this evening for Loon lake. He was accompanied by Private Secretary Halford, and expected to go through to Loon lake without making any stops. It is understood the president, before going, left with his steno grapher copies of his letter ac cepting the presidential nomination and they will be given to the press Sunday night, unless some arrangement 3 other than those which are now existing are made. A Scarcity of Pigeons. San Francisco, Sept. 2.—The second day's shoot of the State Sportsmen's association at Oakland, resulted in sev eral unfinished contests owing to the scarcity of pigeons. The birds. were imported from Kansas and after their long confinement in crates, many of | them were hardly able to fly when re leased from the traps. Tbe contest* will be reopened in the morning.
