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.
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house officers were withdrawn from the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.
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
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 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.
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.
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
The North German Lloyd steamers,

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.
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
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
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.

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.
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

It Finds Apprnbatlonln England—British
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.

Connty Clerk Gang* way's Trial—Tha Na

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.
