New Yokk, Sept. 11. —A number of
steamers arrived in the early morning
hours and dropped anchor in the lower
bay to await the arrival of the health
officers after sunrise. Among tbem are
the La Champagne, from Havre and
Cherbourg, and the Aurania, from
Liverpool. Both showed clean bills of
health, and after being inspected, were

Other arrivals were the British
Bteamer Martello, from Hull, and tbe
Clintonia, from Shields. The steamers
will be closely inspected, and if found
that cholera has made its appearance
on board of any of them, they will be
treated in each instance in a manner
similar to that adopted in the case of
the infected vessels which are at present
undergoing quarantine.
Tbe Bteamer Obdam was released
from quarantine this morning.
The old frigate New Hampshire left
her dock at Hoboken today, and, in tow
of two tugs, proceeded on her way to
the lower quarantine to take aboard the
Bugia's ti ifit-cabin passengers and the
Normannia's second-cabin passengers.
The Stonington, which waß tendered
by J. Pierpont Morgan, was carefully
examined today by the health officers
and others, and found to be unsea
worthy. The Cepheas, of the Iron
Steamboat company, was therefore
chartered to remove the passengers from
the Stonington to Fire island.
Dr. Jenkins, in addition to his regular
rounds, took passage in the Cepheus,
and proceeded to the Normannia to
enperintend tbe transfer of her passen
gers to Fire island. He sent the follow

Citizens Resist the Landing of Quaran
tined Passengers.
Surf Hotel, Fibb Island, N. V.,
Sept. 11.—There has been more excite
ment in tbe last twelve hours, at Fire
Island, than during the whole summer i
season. The sale of the place to tbe
state for quarantine purposes created a
great hubbub among the people of tbe
towns of Islip and Babylon, who pre
dicted all kinds of dire calamities as the
result of the landing of passengers from
vessels infected with cholera, upon the
beach. Last night a mass meeting
committee, consisting of Supervisor
Young, Justices Clark, Studley, O'Brien
and Howell, Dr. W. A. Baker and J. G.
Gilbert, constituting a board of health,
was appointed to go to Fire
Inland with twenty deputy constables
to protest against the use of the island
for quarantine purposes, and resist the
landing of passengers. They left in sail
boats late at night, arriving there in the
morning. The deputies were placed on
guard, and when President Chas. W.
Wilson and Dr. Cyrus Edson, of the
New York board of health, who had
come to Babylon by special train, ar
rived in a sail boat at 3 o'clock in the
morning, they were quickly surrounded
by the deputies, who made demonstra
tions against D. S. S. Sammis, owner of
Fire island, making all kinds of threats
against him for selling it.
President Wilson informed Mr. Sam
mis that Governor Flower had author
ized the purchase of the island for $210,
--000. and that a certified check for $50,
--000 wae ready for him as soon as the
papers were signed. Sammis then
turned the island over to President Wil
son, as tbe representative of Health
Officer Jenkins, all the guests and most
of the servants having left yesterday
When President Wilson appeared,
about 10 o'clock, this morning, after
breakfast, the local board of health and
100 others from tbe mainland, mostly
boys and men, made a demonstration,
using threats against the state, Mr.
Gammie, and everybody concerned. At
11 o'clock President Wilson met the
board of health, explained «U the cir
cumstances of the purchase, and the
intended use of the island. Supervisor
Young and Dr. Baker stated that it
wonld ruin the property and industries,
and endanger the health of the adjoin
ing communities, and asserted that the
local board bad jurisdiction paramount
to tbe etate board, and would resist any
attempt to land tbe passengers.
At the sending of this dispatch, af
fairs are assuming a serious aspect at
Fire island. Although it is only 7:30
o'clock in the evening, this will likely
be tbe last word sent tonight, aa it has
transpired that the sympathizers of the
local board of health are considering the
feasibility of cutting off nil telegraphic
communication between Fire island and
tbe city. The men from Islip and other
points on the main shore, appear to have
decided to bid defiance both to the bid
ding of Governor Flower and the in
structions of the state board of health.
They seem to bave become ntterly law
less as well as reckless. As it grew
dark, men, who have been concealed in
■the shadows of outbuildings, began to
'move about more freely, ac if they felt
certain of concealing their identity.
Pickets were posted, and a regular sys
tem of signals arranged.
There ia no telling the number of men
thus engaged on the island, but there
certainly can not be fe*er than fifty,
and there may double this number.
attempted incendiarism.
A taste of tbe temper and cunning of
these fellows is already afforded Presi
dent Wilson and his associates. A search
being deemed advisable, piles of inflam
mable materials were fonnd heaped up
against either end of the ramshackle
hotel, which, if lighted, would have de
stroyed the building in a very short
time, for being old and dry, it would
bnrn like tinder.
When tbe machinations of the enemy
were fully understood, Mr. Wilson
promptly divided hie associates of the
health department, and newspapermen,
into watches of six men each, who
should patrol the building throughout*
the night, each watch duty three
hours at a stretch. Even President
Wilson stood his turn, and when this
arrangement was effected, all bands felt
more comfortable.
The first news of the Cephens was re
ceived a little after 5 o'clock, when a
dispatch came saying the iron steamboat
was off Point Lookout, with 267 cabin
passengers on board. This was a great
surprise and annoyance to Mr. Wilson,
who bad sent special orders to have the
Cepheua arrive at Fire island as near
noon as possible, and in no event to
leave quarantine later than the noon
hour. \
Mr. Wilson had already arranged with
Capt. Charles Wickes of the Fire island
life-saving station to pilot the Cephas
across tbe bay. At first Capt. Wickes
demurred, and finally told Mr. Wirjrp
frankly tbat Superintendent Art! ar
Doming had threatened him with the
loss of his place if he brought the steam
boat in. Mr. Wilson then promised him
a place which would pay $1,200 a year
in case he lost the $900 position
he already held, for bringing
the Cepheus over the bar. Wickes
agreed to this, bat when the Cepheus
appeared off the bar at 6:40 he had not
turned up. When it was quite dark, he
appeared and said it would be impossi
ble for him to bring in the Cepheus or
even go out and explain the situation.
In spite of his protestations, it was evi
dent that Captain Wickes was intimi
An hour later word came from the
Fire Island observatory, saying that the
Cepheus's lights were disappearing, and
that she bad evidently put back toward
New York. In the meantime tbe
watchers concealed in the shadows
about tbe hotel, kept up their vigilance,
while Mr. Wilson, after sending appeals
to New York for special policemen to be
sent down on a special train, had fire
buckets placed at handy points on the
piazzas, and the watch arranged for the
night begun.
New York, Sept. 11.—Dr. Jenkins
having received word that opposition is
being threatened by the residents of
Babylon to the landing of detained pas
sengers at Fire island, telegraphed Gov
ernor Flower, requesting him to notify
Dr. Raich to proceed with the landing
under the direction of tbe executive.
Later in the evening the governor
replied that the landing wonld be done

An Awful Accident on the
Fitchburg Road.
Horrors of the Great Quincy
Disaster Recalled.
Nine People Killed and Upwards of
Thirty Injured.
The Rear Coach of a Passenger Train
Telescoped by a Fast Freight.
Passengers Terribly Crushed
and Burned.
By the Associated Press.
Boston, Mass., Sept. 11.—The horror
of the great Quincy accident was re
peated last night, when a through
freight express train, west bound, on
the Fitch burg railroad, ran into a pas
senger train standing on the outbound
track, at West Cambridge Junction,
telescoping the rear car, killing six per
sons outright and injuring nearly forty
others, three of whom have since died.
Passenger train No. 131, due to leave
Boston at 10:15 p. m., started on time.
When Weßt Cambridge was reached, the
engineer found it necessary, owing to
the dense fog, to run close to tbe cross
over in order to Bee if he had the right
of way from the signal tower. While
standing near the cross-over, the express
freight train, bound west, came thunder
ing along, and just as the passenger
train started to cross to the Watertown
branch, the freight train crashed into
the rear of the passenger train, with the
result above described.
When the engine struck the rear car
it entered it like a wedge, spliting it in
two parts, each of which fell outward
upon tbe track, the whole roof of the
car lodging on top of tbejlocomotive. The
recoil from tbe collision drove tbe heav
ily loaded freight cars backward, and
although the two cars nearest the engine
were not injured, ten or twelve cars be
hind them were mashed into kindling
wood. The cars were piled upon one
another in indescribable confusion,
completely blocking both tracks for fully
100 yards.
Aa soon as the accident occurred word
was dispatched to the various police
stations in Boston, Somerville and Cam
bridge, asking them to send surgeons to
the scene.
The relief and wrecking trains, on ar
riving at tbe scene, found six bodies re
moved from the debris and laid ont in
the West Cambridge passenger station.
They were removed to the undertaker's,
as were the bodies of the two others re
covered later. By 1 o'clock this evening
all the visible bodies are removed from
the wreck, and the wounded carried for
by willing hands.
In the rear end of the ill-fated car a
man's legs were dangling, the trunk be
ing found a quarter of a mile down the
now the disaster occurred.
The rear brakeman of the passenger
train, who was, shortly before the acci
dent, sent back to notify the engineer of
the freight train of danger ahead, states
that he went back as directed, and sig
naled tbe freight train, and that his
signal was answered by two whistles,
which is tbe usual answer that all sig
nals have been seen and noted. The
reason for the collision, he feels sure,
was that the engineer of the freight train
could not control the train, which con
sisted of thirty cars, the greater part
containing lumber. All were very heavy.
Engineer Goodwin, of the freight
train, is in the hospital, suffering from
a bad shaking up, bat not seriously in
jured. He says: "As soon as I saw
tbe signals on the rear of the passenger
train, I reversed the engine, but the
momentum of the freight carried it into
tbe passenger train."
The passenger cars, other than the
rear one, were not very much injured,
but the shock to the occupants was only
a little lesß severe than tbat sustained
by those in the last car. As soon as the
crash came, frantic men and women
rushed about in a purposeless way,
shrieking and groaning. Flames soon
began to burst from the wrecked freight
cars. The fire department soon put out
tbe flames. The work of rescue then
began. One by one bodies were brought
in and placed upon tbe depot floor.
Mangled by the craßh of timber, scalded
by steam, and blackened by fire, they
presented a sickening appearance. The
groans of the injured and the cries of
those who were searching for missing
friends, added to the horrors of the

Indians and Revolutionists Raising High?
Jinks ln Sonora.
New Orleans, Sept. 11.—A Times-
Democrat El Paso, Tex., special says:
The trouble between the Indians and
the government at Tomasache, in the
state of Sonora, continues. Election
troubles in the same district, occurring
about the same time, a political party,
under the leadership of Cruz Chavez,
organized for armed hostilities.
General Rarjel, with the Elev
enth battalion of infantry, marched
against them, arriving at Tomasache.
The troops were surprised by the rebels,
several were killed, the entire staff
made prisoners and the battalion dis
persed with heavy losses. The govern
ment has a strong force in tho country,
but the rebels have the advantage.
Latest reports have it that the rebel
force is over 500 strong, and that the
government sent over 500 men against
them and met with a signal defeat.
On Wednesday, last. Captain Marti
nez and 500 men left Chihuahua for the
scene of hostilities. About 160 miles
west of Chihuahua the regulars en
countered the rebels, resulting in the
loss of Captain Martinez and forty sol
diers, while the rebels came out without
tbe loss of a single man.
Last night two companies of govern
ment troops left Juarez for the scene of
action. The government is doing all it
can to suppress the revolt, but the In
dians in the mountains have put to
rout every advance of tbe regulars
without loss or capture, and now hold
as hostages General Ranjel and staff.
It is feared that this is but the begin
ning, and that the success of tbe In
dians will encourage the dissatisfied
element of Mexico to a general n prising,
and that the government will succumb.

San Dikgo, Sept. 11.—An immense
throng assembled at Coronado, today, to
witness the aquatic tournament. Just
before the first event was to take place,
the platform in front of the boat house,
and attached to it, gave way, precipi
tating abont fifty people, who were on it,
into the bay. The cooler heads immedi
ately began the work of rescuing those
in the water. Some of the swimmers in
the race had just donned their bathing
suits and come down from the bath
house; others plunged in with their
clothes, coats, and all, to aid in tha
work of rescue. When every one had,
been fished out, it was found that no
one had received serious Injuries.
The 100-yard race was won easily by
