Another Infected Steamer Arrived at New York. The Bcandla, from Hamburg-. Vail of Cholera from Stem to Stern. Thirty-two Deaths During; the Voyage. By the Associated Press. Chicago, Sept. 9.—Shortly before 10 o'clock this morning four carloads of Swedish immigrants arrived at the Union depot by way of New York and Pittsburg. The train came here with a clean bill of health, but the authorities believe one member who died at 1:30 o'clock was afflicted with cholera. Albertina Larson, 18 yeara of age, was in a semi-conscious condition when the train pulled into the depot, and tbe physicians at once ordered her sent to 1106 Thirty-fifth street, where she was to have stopped. On the way up she relapsed into unconcious ness, and Dr. Garrett, of the health de partment," cent her to the county hos pital. She died on the Way. The woman it ia claimed showed un mistakable symptoms of the dread dis ease. She complained of pains ii the stomach, continual gaping, and the skin under her eyes showed a mashed, blue discoloration. She was firat taken ill at Pittsburg, where ahe purchased medicine. The doctor, of the Harrison - street .station, administered stimulants during the ride to tbe hospital, but the woman grad ually aank. Tbe physicians ordered the armory ambulance fumigated as soon as it returned to tbe station, which was thoroughly done. The party to which the dead Woman belonged left Guttenberg, Sweden, Au gust 19th, and sailed from Liverpool August 27th on the Lord Gough. The body of tbe dead woman was ad mitted to the county morgue, and placed in a separate room. The clothing waa fumigated, and deposited with it. Dr. Garrett'said, after he had left tbe hospital, that he would not express a definite opinion that tbe woman had died of cholera, although he stated that such was the indication, aa there were atrong symptoma of that disease. He wished to be convinced, he said,before expressing an official opinion. Dr. Jones waa equally conservative in his opinion, conceding, however, that cholera symptoms were strongly notice able. ANOTHER PLAGUE SHIP. The Scandia Arrive* From Hamburg Becking; With Cholera. New York, Sept. 9.—The Hamburg- American line steamship Scandin, Cap tain Kopff, from Hamburg, arrived at lower quarantine thia evening and waa detained there, aa all ships from tbat port are. At midnight there are no difinite reports fiom her. It ia rumored, however, that ahe ia full of cholera, and that there were thirty-two deaths on board during the voyage, twenty-nine ateerage, two second cabin, and one first cabin. THE TERRIBLE NEWS CONFIRMED. New York, Sept. 10, 2 a. m.-The Scandia left the plague-atricken port of Hamburg August 27th, loaded with 1086 souls. She had the enormous number of 981 ateerage, 27 cabin, and 77 members of her crew. Before she bad been many days out, cholera had broktn out, and before she arrived the pest was fairly ragiug on board of her. Thirty nine cases occurred in half a week. Of these thirty-two succumbed before she arrived at the lower quarantine anchorage. One by one, by couplee and by threes the bodies of the unfortunate victims were dropped overboard. Dr. Byron boarded all the vessels at midnight, and found all well on board the Normannia, Rugia, Moravia and Wyoming, but when he reached the Scandia, he found this terrrible tale of disaster and trouble. There were atill seven virulent cases on board and theae Dr. Byron removed to Swinburne island. THOROUGHLY INFECTED. The Scandia is the firat vessel to ar rive thoroughly infected with cholera. The Scandia has it from bow to stern, from the main deck to the keelson. Cabin passengers, crew and emigrants all have it in their midst, and she will probably be tbe hardest cholera im porter to fight of the lot. ANOTHER HORROR ADDED. Aa though the Scandia waa not enough for one night, another horror ia added to the Bituation. Yeaterday the Wyoming waa only on tbe BUBpect liat; now, at 2 in the morning, ahe can be classed as a cholera ship. Mra. Persons mother of two little children, Eliaa and Adelaide, who died yesterday of a sus picioua disease, haa herself succumbed to the dread disease. She, with three more, was removed from the Wyoming during the late afternoon yesterday. They were placed in the hospital, and Mra. Person died during this night. YELLOW FLAG FLYERS. Latent Reports From the Cholera-In fected Ships. New Yens, Sept. 9.—The Hamburg. American steamship Wieland reached the lower bay this morning and an chored, and hoiated a yellow flag, indi cating tbat ahe had sickness, probably cholera, aboard. Dr. Walser, who was sent by Dr. Jenkins to investigate, re ported that all are well on board the Wieland. The Allen line steamer Corean, from Glasgow, detained for six days, was re leased today and is on her way to her wharf. The White Star steamer Britannic, which arrived this morning, has 215 cabin and 714 steerage paseengers. All are well. Sbe will probably go up t> morrow morning. The Prince William, the Saginaw and Alsatia all went up to-lay. The Spree from Bremen, will be released soon. The yellow flag has also been hoisted again on board ths Normannia, where so many saloon passengers are detained in spite of the fact that the Ecourge seems to be attacking tbe steamer crew and steerage passengers. The latest reports are that there was one more death and one more case to day among the Normannia's crew at the island. HEALTH OFFICERS STILL CONFIDENT. Although the news that another chol era ship had arrived in port increased the gravity of the situation at quaran tine, there is no alarm felt in official circles, and the health authorities are still confident of being able to keep it from coming ashore. Dr. Jenkins said last uight that there bad been no new cases aboard the Mo ravia for several days, and he was con fident the disease had been stamped out aboard tbat vessel. The British steamer -Joseph John, which left Hamburg August 20th, pased Sandy Hook for New York at 8:30 this morning. Tbe vessel registers but 1367 tone, and is of the tramp spe cies of steamers. She reports all well, and that there has been no sickness among her crew of twenty-two men. TUB NORMANNIA FASSENGERB' PETITION. An appeal waa today addressed to Governor Flower, signed by a committee oi physicians, in behalf of the first and second class passengers on the steamer Normannia, protesting against being kept prisoners aboard that cholera-in fected ship. Among other charges against Dr. Jenkins is the allegation that the health officer only visits tbe vessel every two or three days, makes no systematic and regular inspection and that dead bodies remain on tbe vessel a dangerously long time before their removal by the health authorities. In conclusion the petition says: It seems inconceivable that 500 here tofore healthy people should be quaran tined on board an infected ship, and that it is impossible to place them at a place thus far not infected. The peti tioners emphasize this point much the more because from all appearances the measurea taken to disinfect tbe Nor mannia have been incomplete and void of the speedy, energetic and systematic mode of proceeding wbich is necessary to efficiently counteract the damaging influences to which all are exposed. In reference to these points they submit the following facta: -Wrst—-A*, no time have there been fa cilities to remove the sick immediately after an attack of cholera. Second —Dead bodies have been kept on board for twenty-four hours and more. Third—At no time has an official thor ough inspection of thia ship been made, nor have any measures been taken with regard to disinfecting, except auch aB were poesible with an insufficient sup ply of disinfecting material carried on board. Fourth —Disinfecting material has not been furnished promptly, in spite of the requests of the ship authorities. Their demand, made on Saturday, September 3d, to place on board ship an expert to supervise and carry out thorough disin fecting, has not been complied with. Fifth—The water supply of the ship haa not been taken care cf in a proper way, although by Monday morning the tanks were clean and ready to receive a fresh supply of water. Such ia not on board at the present hour. A supply of fresh water immediately after tbe ar rival of the ship should have been made the main point of sanitary importance. If, therefore, in spite of such a condi tion of things, the passengers should be obliged to remain in quarantine on board the Normannia, the undersigned deem it their duty to demand the exe cution of auch sanitary measures, under the supervision of official experts, as are apt to remove the danger to which, under the gtven circumstances, the oc cupants of the ship are constantly ex posed.

Blomen, Hopaticon, N. Y. THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ACTS. A special meeting of the chamber of commerce waa held thia afternoon to co-operate with the authorities in cholera precautious. A communication was re ceived from Dr. Jenkins, in which ho appealed for some arrangements which would render it possible to remove to the shore the passengers now detained on vessels. "Each hour of delay im perils them," he said. Secretary of the Treasury Foster made a brief speecb, in which he aaid he was convinced that both tbe federal and atate authorities had up to this time done everything possible to pre vent the entrance of cholera. Resolutions were adopted commend ing tbe efforts of the state and federal authorities, and deploring the necessity which has compelled passengers to be detained on ships, and stating tbat hu manity demands tbat arrangements be made for their removal to some isolated spot on land. After the meeting adjourned a com mittee held a session and prepared a letter to Dr. Jenkins, saying the com mittee was appointed to co operate with him in every possible way, and waa awaiting an expression of his wishes. Further, that it would tend to reassure the public mind, if the co-operation of the New York academy of medicine was listed, and saying that the conference committee of tbat body waa at the 1,a.1,1i r\Pßnn*fn .n.ni.irt An Alleged Escape From Quarantine.

"Yes, yes; most certainly," he replied very cordially and heartily. "I simply came here for the purpose of meeting a number of political friends, and I suc ceeded in my purpose." PROSPECTS LOOKING FAVORABLE. Being asked if the prospects in the state and country looked favorable, Mr. Cleveland replied pleasantly in the af firmative. HILL MEN CALL ON CLEVELAND.
