Passengers on the Detained Ships in a Terrible Plight. They Complain Bitterly of their Treat ment—No Place of Befnaje From the Plague Provided by the Authorities. By the Associated Press.] New York, Sept. B.—The cholera situation at quarantine is grave. Not only are new cases breaking out every aay among the steerage paesengers of tbe ill-fated Normannia and Rugia, the former of whom are on Hoffman island, but it ie now settled well among the crew of the Normannia, who are on board. The cabin passengers, who have been free from any sign of disease, are still kept like rata in a trap, en closed within theineides of the steamer, and cholera raging alongside of them. "No ship to put them on; noplace where I can land tbem," says the health officer,while the agents whose place it is to see tbat the pasEengers are cared for, say nothing. Dr. Jenkins has made strenuous ef forts to obtain a place for the well pas sengers, but up to the preeent has been unsuccessful. Today he thought he had everything arranged, but a gentleman thiß evening showed a correspondent of the Associated Press a telegram from Austin Gorbin, stating tbat the war de partment had refused the use of Sandy Hook for cabin passengers, and this blocked their plan to erect barracks there. Dr. Jenkins said he had asked Gov. Flower to annex Fire island, which was private property, and let him put the cabin passengers ashore at once, and he thought it might be possible to do so, and have an appraisement of its value made later. The governor has advised bim to rent or purchase a vessel to put the cabin passengers in if necessary, and be thought things would be straight ened out. AT LOWER QUARANTINE. As regards the situation at lower quarantine, things are no better than on tbe previous day.' In fact, they are much worse in regard to mortality,eleven fresh cases and four deaths being the day's record. On the Normannia six new cases were fonnd, and on the Rugia three cases, all members of the crew and steerage. Tbey were removed to Swinburne island. The Moravia was found, for tbe fourth time, to be absolutely free from case;, and the doctors are now confi dent that cholera has been success fully stamped out on board that ship. On Hoffman's island one of tbe Norman nia's steerage passengers has developed cholera, and he wae removed on a tug to Swinburne island. There it was found four deaths had occurred since last night. A NEW CAMP SELECTED. Secretary Foster has selected a new lo cation for a quarantine camp, about a mile and a half from the Hook's end. He wired full details of the situation to tbe secretary of war tonight, and expects a reply tomorrow. a passenger's protest. The following letter, written on tbe Normannia on September 7th, was re ceived in tbe city today at the office of the Evangelist, from Rev. Daniel W. Fisher, D.D., LL.D., president of Hano ver college, Indiana: On behalf of the cabin passengers of this ill-fated ship, I appeal to you for help. We are perfectly willing to be quarantined, but, in tbe name of hu manity and civilization, not to speak of Christianity, let the quarantine be at least rational, and not barbarouß. We have not been sick in the cabin, except in one case, which seems to have had almost no choleraic symptoms, and that occurred two days ago. We suc ceeded in getting the steerage away, but the crew cannot be removed. The ship must have them aboard. One alter another they sicken. Under theae cir cumstances we scarcely dare hope that ultimately we should escape. At any rate, when can Bucha quarantine end? Think of the children, women, feeble persons, any set of men, even criminals, left to wear out the danger of cholera in this fashion. Anchor the ship as far out at sea as possible, and let the dis ease do what it can. If any set of people in any other situation were enduring such perils as ours, millions of voices would be raised to rescue us without a day's delay. Why are we not worthy of help, situated as we are ? Surely not because help is im possible. Put us on another vessel, land ua at some safe point on the shore and seclude up to any extent, but for God's sake do not perpetuate thia bar barism on us here for a day longer. Try to help us at once. Yours verv r truly, D. W. FISIIBR. P. B.—Why are we on the ship? Be cause the agent of the company in Lon don assured almost every passenger who embarked at Southampton that there was no steerage this trip. Some of 'us have his written statement that the ship sailed from Hamburg without steer age. YELLOW FLAGS FLYING. A Grave State of Affairs on the Infected Ships. New York, Sept. 8. —The Normannia and Rugia have hoisted yellow flags again, and the same signal is flying on Hoffman island, indicating the discovery of additional cholera cases. Up to yes terday evening there had been thirty one cases of sickness from the disease and eight deaths at this port. No death has occurred in this" city yet from cholera. THE LATEST VICTIMS. Following is a statement of the situa tion tonight: New cases on the Normannia: Franz Albrecht, Adolph Meier, Gottlieb Dami sohn, Gustav Nonmen, D. Daudile, Carl Grumicb, all among tbe crew. On the Rugia tbe new cases are Gus tav Wtllachopper, Johan Pooratski and Felona Kaneschin. Eight persons, who were exposed to tbe patients of the same families, have been removed to Swinburne island, and isolated from observation. But one new case was teported on Hoffman island today, Carl Blunnig, a steerage paaeenger, who was removed to Swinburne island. He ia one of the Normannia's passengers. Swinburne island deaths: Elfrida Schultz, Henry Frankel, Jacob Kessler, Christine Hansen. Nurse better. The cholera on board the Moravia has been, to all appearances, stamped out. STOKERS THE CHIEF SUFFERERS. The stokers on the Normannia, this morning seem to be tbe greater sufferers. Eight of t .c crew of that vessel were transferred, yesterday afternoon, to Swinburne island. These men had only the day before been taken back to tbe ship after twelve hours' stay on Hoff man island, where tbey bad been dis infected with all possible thoroughness. Along with 500 others, tbey were taken back to tbe ship apparently in excellent health. The doctors will not admit, positively, that these eight patients Dave cholera, nor will they deny it. A CAMP OF REFUGE. Dr. Jenkins today accepted Sandy Hook as a cholera refuge for tbe cabin passengers of tbe pest ships. He hopes to obtain permission to use Fire island also. Dr. Jenkins stated today tbat Sandy Hook will be used for placing emigrants on. He thought the old unused eheds of the Central railroad nf New Jersey would be used, which could accommo date 500, and the same number of tents cculd be used. Secretary Foster says a wealthy gen tleman has offered to undertake the con struction of a camp, and meet all the expense, taking hiß chances of getting his money back for the parties liable therefor. The borough board of health has sent from Atlantic Highlands a protest to Governor Abbott against the landing of passengers from the infected ships at Sandy Hook. Tbe borough has pro vided a day and night water and land patrol service to that end. QUARTERS FOR CABIN PASSENGERS. The steamboat Stonington has been purchased by J. Pierpont Morgan for the cabin paseengers of the detained steamers. Dr. Jenkins said he expected the Stonington down tomorrow evening, or early on the day after, when the cabin paseengers would be removed to her. The New Hampshire, as soon as she is ready, will be need for tbe cabin pas sengers of tbe Rueia. The steerage passengers will be removed to Hoffman island. RELEABKD FROM QUARANTINE. The City oi New York and the Bonr gogne have left ior New York. Chaunc?y M. Depew, and the wife and daughter of Secretary Foster, were taken off the City of New York on tbe cutter Grant. The steamer Elbe left quarantine at 3 o'clock this afternoon. The Belgian steamer Waesland, Captain Grant, from Antwerp, which had been among the quarantine fleet in the upper bay, was released this evening, by order of the health authorities, and proceeded to the dock. PATROLING THE SOUND. The navy yard authorities yesterday sent the tug Markeeta up to Willett's point to patrol Loog Island sound in the vicinity of Whitestone and City island, .so as to quarantine any vessels coming from foreign ports. The quarantine commissioners took down today one hundred suits of jeans to be used by the men emigrants dur ing fumigation; also one hundred Mother Hubbard wrappers to be used by the women. Difficulty is experienced in obtaining the necessary telegraph operators. Two have now been obtained, and the third, who is neceesary to complete the corps, was expected to volunteer for service to day. This done, complete returns from the islands will come in at short inter vals for the information of tbe public. A large store of gasoline for lighting the offices; brandy, claret, alcohol and other necessaries were taken down this morning to quarantine by Commissioner Allen. A SPECIALIST'S OPINION. The sanitary superintendent of New York* has received a dispatch from Dr. Seibert, who is in Berlin, on behalf of the New York board of health. Dr. Seibert Bays: "Berlin steams all articles from Ham burg one hour. The highest opinion is that all the countries in Northern Europe are infected, and new outbreaks are expected. The new law will stop all Russian emigration passing quarantine. Months will be insufficient to stamp out the ilieeaee, even under the most effi cient methods. The best thing for you in America, is to steam emigrant bag gage and other articles for at least an hour. They must be steamed singly, or else emigration must be stopped. The germs are everywhere; no port is safe." CHOLERA IN MEXICO. It ia reported at the Maritime ex change that cholera has appeared in Mexico. A cablegram from Vera Cruz has been received, stating that four officers and two sailors of the British steamship May, at tbat port, are sick aboard the vessel. THE PLAGUE AT HAMBURG. Official Beporta Fay Cholera Is on tbe Decrease. Washington, Sept. B.—The secretary of state received a cablegram this after noon from Vice Oonsul Burke at Ham burg, saying: "Steady decrease of cholera the last few days." New Yobk, Sept. B.—The sanitary superintendent, Br. Cyrus Edson, has received the following cablegram from Hamburg, from Dr. Seibert, who is studying cholera there: The Hamburg method of handling cholera is defective. The situation is exaggerated. The disease is on the de crease. London, Sept. B.—The Star's Ham burg correspondent gives the following cholera record for Wednesday: Freeh cases, 816; deaths, 302; interments, 629. TEN PAGES. He stateß that 700 bodies await inter ment. He says tbe epidemic has re newed its virulence in the suburbs and in the neighborhood of the etery, where whole families have been snatched away. QUEBEC WAKED UP. All Immigration by Land or Water Stopped. Toronto, Ont., Sept. B.—ltis believed a case of cholera has been found aboard the steamer Wandralin, from Hamburg, which passed the farther point yester day. The Quebec government hastily issued a proclamation forbidding immi gration, and making regulations for the inspection of vessels, last night. Washington, Sept.. B.—United States Coneul Ryder, at Quebec, telegraphed the state department today as follows: "Order paeeed in council last night pro hibiting all immigration by land or water to Quebec." VIRCHOW'S VIEWS. An Eminent German Physician on the Cholera Epidemic. Berlin, Sept. B.—Prof.Vlrchow.as the result of his investigations of cholera in Russia, declares that the measures for treating cholera patients there and of preventing the spread of the disease, are excellent. They are better in this respect than in Germany. The professor does not think infection in Germany from tbe western part of Russia is prob able. He further says, owing to inade quate knowledge of tbe bacillus, it is hard to tell whether cholera will reach here in tbe spring. He holds that the disease germ is not killed by cold weather. Cholera in Persia Ceased. London, Sept. 8 —The Times|s Te heran correspondent says: The cholera epidemic has ceased here. The Bazaars are again open, and business has been resumed. The mortality here is va riously estimated at from 13,000 to 20, --000, while for the whole of Persia it is at least 30,000. A Quarantine at Halifax. Halifax, N. S., Sept. B.—The Halifax board of health has decided tbat no ships from any foreign ports, including Great Britain and Ireland, shall land passengers or freight at Halifax until after receiving permission from the poit physician. THE TOMAHAWK BURIED. CLEVELAND AND HILL FORCES UNITED IK NEW YOBK. The Tammany Braves Sheathe the Knife, and Promise to Stand In. A Treaty of Peace Form ally Signed. New York, Sept. B.—Grover Cleve land, accompanied by Don M. Dickin son, arrived from Buzzard's Bay this morning, on the steamer Pilgrim. Cleveland drove to the Victoria hotel, where he will remain till Saturday, when he returns to Buzzard's Bay. Mr. Cleveland's purpose in coming to New York ie supposed to be to confer with the Democratic leaders. He held a long conference with Senator Brown, who is on friendly terms with the Tammany leaders, this morning. William C. Whitney was closeted with Edward Murphy, jr., and Mr. Sheehan, of the Democratic state committee, this morning. It is openly stated that on Monday morning Hill left bis ultimatum here, stating the terms on which he would take an active part in the coming- cam paign. The haßty trip of Dickinson to Gray Gableß, and his return with Mr. Cleveland, is supposed to indicate an amicable agreement between the ex president and the Elmira statesman. This evening William C. Whitney, Lieutenant Governor Sheehan, Richard Croker, Edward Murphy, jr., and Don M. Dickinson dined with ex-president Cleveland. A lengthy conference fol lowed the dinner, which was not con cluded until 11:30. After leaving the hotel ex-Secretary Whitney said they had a very pleasant time; tbat Mr. Cleveland and all tbe others were well pleased with tbe out look for the campaign. From all that could be gathered from various sources, the result of the con ference was that a treaty of peace was signed between the factions, and it is said the Hiil men have been placated, and that the senator will speak in the coming campaign. Indianapolis, Sept. 8. —The Democra cy of this city last night paid a tribnte to the memory of Vice-President Hend ricks, the occasion being his birthday, in a meeting addressed by Hon. Adlai Stevenson and others. Stevenson re ceived an ovation. He delivered a somewhat extended eulogy of the dead statesman, and only incidentally touched on politics. A letter from ex-President Cleveland was read, regretting his inability to be present, and paying a fitting tribute to Hendricks's memory. Today Stevenson spoke at Marion and Anderson. The remainder of the week he will travel over the state in a special car, speaking at several places each day. Democratic GAins in Arkansas. Little Rock, Ark., Sept. B.—The in dications now are that Fishback (Demo crat) will lead Whipple (Republican) by 50,000 majority for governor. Chic toc county, in which the negroes have an overwhelming majority, is the only one in tbe state that has gone Repub lican. The Republican majority in Jefferson county, in 1890, of 4300, is changed to a Democratic majority of 200. Perry county has gone solidly Demo cratic, for the first time since the war. New Hampshire Democrats. Concord, N. H., Sept. B.—The Demo cratic state convention met here to<*av and nominated Hon. Luther F. McKiri ney of Manchester for governor, on tbe first ballot, and chose presidential elec tors for tbe ensuing campaign. Your fall suit should be made by Qetz.

Gossip About the Great Champion ship Battle. John Xj. Blabbers tike a Booby Over His Defeat—He Browns His Grief In the Flowing Bowl—Cor bett Lionized. By the Associated Press.] New Orleans, Sept. B.—Champion Jim Corbett will bid adieu to his New- Orleans friends tomorrow afternoon. The Corbett people have engaged a spe cial train on the Piedmont air line, leaving here Saturday morning at 4 o'clock. The young pugilist will re ceive a rousing send-off, notwithstand ing the early hour. CORBETT's GENEROSITY. Corbett showed his generosity in a re markable manner last night, when be sent word to Sullivan that he would not only spar lour rounds with him, at a benefit to be held at Madison Square garden, September 27th, but would pay $1000 for a box for the performance. When Corbett went to Sullivan's corner and helped him to his chair, he held out his hand and said: "John, will you shake hands with me?" and Sullivan replied: "Yes, my boy; I'm glad it was yon that won." SULLIVAN'S STAKE MONEY. There was considerable talk of a seri ous nature tonight regarding the stake money on the Sullivan end of the string. It is said that, while Charley Johnßon and Jimmy Wakely got the credit of being the backers of Sullivan, there is good ground for the belief that tbe whole $10,000 was put up by Percy Rockwell, who has since died, and there is possibility of the estate suing the stakeholder to recover the money. THE HEAVIEST LOSER. Tbe rumor that McAuliffe lost the $18,250 which he won in his fight with Myer, besides $5000 which he borrowed, is false in part, aB the money, with the exception of $5000, was not placed, al though McAuliffe told his trainer to do so. The biggest loEer of the day. so far as can be ascertained, is Jobn Kelley, of New York, the ex-baseba 1 umpire, who lucked the great champion of cham pions for $21,000. CRESTFALLEN NEW YORK SPORTS. If there was ever a crestfallen crowd of sporting people, it is the Manhattan contingent of New York. They came here full of enthusiasm for Sullivan and staked their money on the issue. They came on a special train, and counted on making it the banner train from New Orleans to New York, and Mr. Blake, of the Manhattan athletic club, who is in charge of the party, claimed yesterday afterncon that they had bought up all the red, white and blue lights to be found in New Orleans, and they in tended setting them off all along tbe road on the way home. JACKSON WILL CHALLENGE CORBETT. "Parson" Davies, who won a large amount of money on Corbett, will issue a challenge in a few days in behalf of Peter Jackson, to fight Jim Corbett ior a stake such as he will tiien name er that can be agreed upon, and the larg est puree offered. Delaney thinks Sullivan could have been whipped at any time after the first round, but he advised Corbett to be Blow and Corbett followed his advice, although he did it with reluctance, de airing to show the crowd what He could do. AGAINST FIGHTING NEGROES. "Corbett will never meet Jackson again," said Delaney. "We are againet fighting negroes any more. Besides, Corbett bested Jackson already, and there is nothing to be gained by fighting him again. We will pay no attention to Mitchell, and for tbe present will ignore all challenges. We have engagements very far ahead." JOHN L. BOWLS UP. It transpires that Sullivan, after hia defeat last night, began undoing all the careful work of training which he and his trainers were doing for weeks past. Defeat and chagrin, coupled with tbe absence then of a motive for further training, doubtless led tbe man to re sume his convivial habits. Others about him were drinking; no wonder Sullivan drank. His deep Bleep this morning was the result of his potations. When he awakened this morning he waa taken over to tbe gymnasium of the club, and there kept until the time when he could go with tl c people to the train on which the homeward journey was at 8:30. A BOBBY-LOOKING SIOHT. The great giant presented a pitiable spectacle. Tbe cut on hie nose was closed, but bis eyes were blackened and his whole face swollen terribly. While he tried to smoke the sodden butt of a cigar, he talked in a maudlin voice on hiß downfall. He said that, which in sober quiet be would not reiterate, and which in bis present condition may not be put on record as his deliberate views. Sullivan lays tbe greatest stress on the fact that he could not reach Corbett. THB BULLY CHEWS THE RAG. "But I did not run away," the big fel low almost sobbed. "Lock us up in a room—just lock me in a room with bim and see what I could do with him. But he licked me; yes he did; be licked me and let it go at tbat," he blurted. "I give him all the credit be wants. He licked square enough, but I'm old, I am; let him go through what I have. Let him knock 'em all out for twelve yeara and then see if be can do any better than I do. Yes, be licked the chain opin, and now he's the champion. Let [Continued on Finn rage.]
