How It Got Past Quarantine Is a Profound Mystery. The Health Authorities Taking Every Precaution to Stamp It Out Before It Becomes , Epidemic. By the Associated Press.] New York, Sept. 14.--Now that Asi atic cholera haa developed among tbe dwellers in thia city, each may aak hia neighbor: "Well, what of it?" This expression implies no over-confidence. It lies within each individual's power to assure hia own personal safety almost beyond peradventure. He haa but to drink no water and milk except such as baa been thoroughly boiled, and to eat no food that haa not been thoroughly and freahly cooked; he will abstain from butter and cheese, and may then possess hiß soul in serenity. Cholera will paBS him by. Ever since the Moravia arrived in port, as tbe harbinger of the dreaded plague, the atate and local officials have been straining every nerve to prevent its gaining a foothold in this city and being spread by various channels to the coun try at large; but while they were all looking seaward, cholera quietly made ita presence felt in our midst, and five corpses today mark its advent. "How did it get in ?" ia the question on everyone's lips. Tbe health officers are puzzled, but the utmost precautions are being taken to prevent its spread At each of the houses where tbe patients lived, two doctors have been sta tioned to remain constantly on duty, enforcing the most rigid rules, of cleanliness; seeing to disinfection, etc. No family must move out of tbe house without a written permit. The idea is to overwhelm and stamp out the disease in each house, as was done with typhus upon its first appearance. Tbat this could be done was successfully demonstrated in the cholera outbreak of 1866. The doctors on duty in each in fected house will remain there until the danger of a further outbreak haa finally passed. The health officers fully be lieve tbat this will be before long. Other cases are expected to develop from the scattered centers of contagion, bat none fn tbe same buildings. Tbat is the way the health officers propose to drive the cholera from the city, now that it ,l>as got in, and if the citizens will use reason and not get into a foolish and needless panic, tbey are sure that they will succeed, though they should by no means undervalue tbe danger. Every possibility, every feature of a cholera epidemic has been dis counted and provided against. It is bard for the department to trace the cases so far reported, because all tbe victims are dead. The situation is identical with that of 1866. when cholera suddenly appeared in three or four widely separated places in the city, af ter it had been successfully quarantined out the previous fall. The first case this year was Charlea McAvoy, a plast erer by trade, who lived on Tenth ave nue. The only possible clue may be, that he had been working about the wharves. Yet, none of tbe pest-ships had come up to the wharf. McAvoy was seized with cramps last Monday evening, and tbe next morning took to bed, dying Tuesday evening. Two doctors diagnosed hia case ac Asiatic cholera, and tbe house waa dis infected as a measure of precaution. Dr. Briggs, who made an autopsy, de clared, h iwever, that ita result was "not at all suggestive of Asiatic cholera, while showing familiar signs of cholera morbus." In spite of this statement, however, some of the intestinal fluid taken to sanitary headquarters and cul tivated in gelatina, produced a crop of cholera bacilli, and the nature of the disease is no longer open to question. Eight days have elapeed since Mc- Avoy'a death. What caused the long delay in ascertaining the exact facta is not stated. The other victims were William Wig mann and wife, of 761 Eleventh avenue; Charlotte Beck, of 1764 Second avenue, and Minnie Levingen, of 411 East Forty sixth street. There have been other caaea, of which the board has not jet made an official report. It waß said at police headquarters this evening that the disease had been brought into the city by butchera taking meat to the quarantined Hamburg steamships, bat this could not be sup ported. _ i _ _ _. • DON'T WORRY. No Occasion for Excitement Over Cholera in Mew York City. New York, Sept. 14.—President Wil son, of the health board, said this even ing there was no occasion for excitement in this city. The health department has taken every possible measure to prevent the spread of the infection. Sanitary Superintendent Edison said there waß no danger of the cholera becoming epi demic. There would be sporadic cases, he Baid, for at least 60 days, nntil real cold weather sets in, which will have the effect oi stamping out the disease. The health officials have sent to Ellis island, for the passen ger lists of all the vessels arrived there since August 29th. Every effort will be made to trace the passengers as far as practicable. Mr. Edson said the infec tion, which caused cholera to break out here, must have come through the quar antine lines. The source of the infection is being investigated very carefully. Mayor Grant had conferences tonight with President Wilson, of the health de partment, and others. They look the view that the best service they could reader tbe public was to keep it folly intormed of all developments. The mayor found the department of charities and corrections fully prepared to care for the patients. One of the doctors formerly attached to the board of health said tonight the present indications point to an epidem ic, which will require most urgent measures to prevent it from assuming large proportions. The fact that the history of the cases is so far unknown makes the danger all the greater, as the points of distribution of cholera germs may be many. The authorities can act only on each case as it appears, while the disease itself is per haps secretly spreading and infecting the crowded tenement districts. The fact that five cases occurred within snch short periods of time, is strong Eroof that they are not sporadic attacks, ut of a true epidemic character. How ever, an epidemic would not result in snch large mortality aa in tbe past his tory of the plague, when sanitary science was in a crude state, but, should cholera get into the crowded tenements, it would be a difficult matter to check tbe ravages of the disease. In the face of such a threatened calamity, all polit ical considerations should be put aside and the co-operation of the eminent medical men of the city sought. There is a suspicion that Max Vitkaft, who was stricken with symptoms of cholera Tuesday night, and died in Bellevue hospital this morning, was really afflicted with the plague. If such be the case, the infection doubtless has found a good breeding place in the cheap lodging houses in the Bowery, where he had a room. THE QUARANTINE SHIPS. One New Caae on the Scandia—Cheering Reports Given Out. Nbw York, Sept. 14.—The storm was still raging in the bay this morning, and it was impossible to obtain any news from the vessels at anchor. At a late hour laßt night Dr. Byron, on Swin burne island, telegraphed Dr. Jenkins that the surf was running high, and tbat It was exceedingly dangerous to put oil in small tugs for the usual tour of inspection. Dr. Jenkins wired back not to make the attempt, which meant that f*r a period of several hours, per haps a day or two, all communication would be cut off between the sick on the infected vessels and the doctors on Swinburne and Hoffman islands, and that those who might die during that period on tbe Scandia} Bugia, Wyoming or Moravia must remain on board. Dr. Jenkins this evening received the following telegram from Dr. Byron, giv ing the census for the day: "Admitted from the Scandia, one; ad mitted from Hoffman island, August Land!. 72 years old, from tbe Norman nia, died September 14th, at 2 a. m., of senility; sick, convalescents, and sus pects, 44; transferred to tbe convales cing ward, five." l)r Jenkins arose this morning much refreshed, after his first decent night's rest, undisturbed by worry or being awakened by midnight callers. Tbe news he gave out today ought to cheer the Normannia cabin passengers. He said he would most certainly release them tomorrow. As regards tbe cabin passengers of the Bugia, he would, if not hioß, developed, transfer them to the New Hampshire, thence land them on Fire island, as soon as accommodations could be arranged. The husband of one of the saloon pas sengers on board the Bugia stated, to day, that his wife, in a letter to him, stated tbat tbe cabin passengers of that steamer do not wish to be taken out of the Bugia. Tbey have entered a protest against being moved, being afraid of going through the same experiences as those of the Normannia. She says they are all well, and not afraid of stopping on the Bugia. No arrangement has yet been made for the transfer of the 20 cabin passen gers of the Scandia, but Health Officer Jenkins says he is considering the feasi bility of putting them on board the Cepheus, and anchoring her in the lower bay. No cabin passengers will be landed on Sandy Hook. Dr. Jenkins said he was highly gratified with the prospects the cholera patients were making toward recovery, and the apparent check which had been pat on the foul disease. He was not prepared to say there was still no cause for alarm, as he was not omnipotent, although he tries to be omnipresent. The tank steamer Heligoland, Captain Donklage, which arrived last night from Altona, on tbe Elbe, a little below Ham burg, and is now anchored in the lower bay, had two deaths aboard, among her crew, from cholera. The men who died on tbe Heligoland were Michael Bolandies, after 24 hours' sickness, and 6. D. Heaffman, after 20 hours' sickness. All are well on board now. Dr. Walser reports the following new caee on board the Scandia: Stotuan Ellitowitch, taken ill this morning. The steamer Majestic with 607 cabin passengers arrived today. All are well on board, and left here at 4:24 p. m. for tbe dock. The steamers Belgenland, Maasdam and Diadem were released at 11:35 a. m. The steamers Bhineland and Am alii were released from quarantine this afternoon, AT FIRE ISLAND. The Normannia's Passengers to Be Re leased Today. Fire Island, N. V., Sept. 14.—The quarantine lines and hotel were guarded by 12 detectives from New York last night to prevent tbe escape of any of the quarantined passengers. Thiß morning Dr. Voight reported the health of the paesengers excellent, there being only a few incidental troubles among tbe women and children. While there _ is some grumbling, the majority of tbe passengers ex press satisfaction with the accommo dations. All opposition on tbe part of baymen has disappeared. Dr. Jenkins has telegraphed that he will probably release the Normannia's passengers to morrow. The thirteenth regiment will remain at Babylon to prevent any in terference with the landing of the pas sengers. EXCITEMENT AT QUARANTINE. Speculations as to How Cholera Got Into Gotham. Quarantine, 8. 1., Sept. 14.—There was great excitement in the station to night when the report waß received that five cases of cholera had taken place in New York. Dr. Jenkins expressed him self as confident that it had not passed Continued on Filth page. TEN PAGES. THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES. A Propitious Outlook for the Democracy. Straws that Indicate Victory in November. Republican Losses in Maine, Vermont and Arkansas. The Campaign of the Enemy Already Resulting- In Disaster—Dismay In the Banks of the Opposition. By the Associated Press. New Yokk, Sept. 14.—The Democratic national committee has issued the fol lowing address: The Democratic national committee congratulates the country on the result of the recent eta'e elections in Maine, Vermont and Arkaneaß. In Arkansas tbe combined opposition fell short by over 30,000 of the votes of the Democ racy alone. This has brought dismay to the combination in the south and its manipulators in tbe north. In Maine and Vermont tbe contest waß conducted distinctly on national issues. The Re publican managers' appeals summoned to their aid all the potent resources of their national organization, with an ex baustless treasury and splendid equip ment of orators. The campaign of our adversaries for a triumphant tept of votes in these states, so cirelully planned, and so thoroughly snd force fully executed, ended in a conspicuous disaster. Our friends everywhere are entitled to take fresh courage from the results. BAY STATE REPUBLICANS. A Ticket Nominated to Be Knocked Oat In November. Boston, Sept. 14—The Republican state convention waa held in Tremont temple, today. Eben S. Draper wae temporary chairman, and Charles H. Allen, permanent chairman. The plat form adopted opposed the inflation of currency, either by inconvertible paper money, or the free coinage of silver. A demand ia made tbat a legal barrier be interposed against indiscriminate immi gration. Nathaniel P. Banks and John D. LoDg were unanimously nominated for elect ors at large. The following state ticket was nomi nated: For governor, William H. Haile; lieutenant-governor, Roger Wol oott; secretary of state, William Olin; Attorney-general. Albert E. Pillsbury; auditor, John W. Kimble; treasurer, George A. Warden. NEW JERSEY DEMOCRATS. ! A Bitter Struggle Over the Nomination for Governor. Trenton, N. J., Sept. 14.—The Demo cratic Btate convention met here today. There was a lengthy struggle between the contesting delegates from Passaic county, resulting in a victory for Gov ernor Abbett's wing. Nominations for governor were then made, Judge Werts and Ed F. C. Young being placed in nomination. Daring a speech, by one of the Werts' men, some sharp comments from the audience drew forth a bittet retort, and a tremendous uproar ensued. For a time it Beemed aa though the con vention would break up, but after a lengthy row, balloting proceededed and resul.ed in the nomination of Werts. The platform endorsed the national declaration, and defends in detail all the alleged partisan legislation. SOUTH DAKOTA DEMOCRATS. Fusion With the Populists Favored on a Fair Baals. Yankton, S. D., Sept. 14.—The Demo cratic executive committee and the Democratic nominees held a conference today in regard to fusion with the Inde pendents on the electoral ticket and one or two state offices. The ludependents are not inclined to concede much. It was practically decided that the Demo crats could not fuse with the Independ ents, unless the latter were willing to divide the state ticket, and a committee of four was appointed to confer with a similar committee from the Independ ents to arrange matters. ♦ SAN BERNARDINO DEMOCRATS. A Harmonious County Convention Held at Redlands. Redlands, Cal., Sept. 14.—The Re publican county convention was held here today, and a full county ticket nominated, as follows: For sheriff, F. L. Holcomb; county clerk, M. D. Sweesy; auditor, G. R. Holbrook; recorder, John L. Goodwin; tax collector, A. G. Ken dall: district attorney,F, Foster; treas urer, Truman Reeves; assemblyman, Seventy-seventh district, C. 0. Barker; Seventh-eighth district, J. C. Lynch, Tbe proceedings were harmonious throughout. A PARSON FOR CONGRESS. Colorado Democrats Endorse the Rev. Myron W. Reed. Denver, Sept. 14.—The First district Democrats today nominated Rev. Myron W. Reed, who is also the People's party nominee for congress. There was a split on the matter of resolutions, the Weaver Democrats not wanting the committee on resolutions to endorse Cleveland. The Clevelandites bolted and called another convention, at which resolutions endorsing the Democratic platform and candidates were adopted. ♦ SAGEBRUSH DEMOCRACY. The Party Split Up on the Fusion Question. Carson, Nev., Sept. 14.—The Demo cratic state convention to nominate presidential electors and a state ticket, met here today; forty-one delegates were present, representing every county in the state. Thirty-two delegates voted against the motion to noninate electors, and the nine who voted for the motion left the PRICE FIVE CENTS. hall and formed a minority convention. They nominated R. il. Clark for senator andJ. C. Hamerman for congressman. Presidential electors were also nomi nated. The majority convention, who aie all Weaver men, nominated C. S. Belknap for supreme judge, and ad journed for one week. TEXAS REPUBLICANS. They Endorse the Independent Demo cratic Candidate for Governor. Fort Worth, Tex., Sept, 14.—The Republican state convention met again this morning, and the feature of the opening session was the prayer of "Sin Killer" Griffin, a negro preacher, who prayed for God to bless George Clark, the independent Democratic candidate for governor. This brought down the house, and the convention took a recess until this aiternoon. When the convention re-assembled, the platform was read. It endorses the work of the Minneapolis convention and pledges the solid vote of the Republican party to Harrison and Reid; arraigns the present state administration on 15 counts; condemns the law discriminat ing against colored school teachers, and deals with various other state issues. It was adopted, and then came the report of the committee on the state ticket. It set forth the inadvisability of nominating a state ticket, and after brief discussion, a motion to abandon the idea and to recommend to the Texas Republicans that tbey support George Clark for Governor, was adopted, 569 to 170._ The minority vote represented the straightout Republicans, would-be Peo ple's party endorsers, and those favoring a free-for-all vote. Tbe action of thia convention will, it is believed, secure to Clark not less than 60,000 out of the 90,000 Republican votes iv the state, and will probably elect him. WIOMING REPUBLICANS. Fulsome Flattery Bestowed on Presi dent Harrison. Laramie, Wyo., Sept. 14.—The Re publican state convention was called to order in this city this morning by Sena tor James M. Gary, chairman of the state committee. Carey addressed the convention, crediting President Harri son with fulfilling the pledges of his party the nearest of any president since the days of Washington. Charles R. Kelsey, of Rock Springs, was made tem porary chairman. After the appoint ment of committees, the convention ad journed until this evening. Claim the Outlook It Bright. Buffalo, N. V., Sept. 14—The ex ecutive committee of the national Re publican leaaue met at their headquar ters in the Hotel Iroquois tonight, and listened to reportß on the situation from different sources. All claim that the outlook is bright. President Clarkson announces that Hon. Whitelaw Beid will .address a mass-meeting Friday afternoon, and review the parade in the evening. Spooner on the Stamp. Milwaukee, Sept. 14—The Repub lican campaign in Wisconsin was opened tonight, by the gubernatorial candidate, ex-Senator Spooner, who addressed a large meeting at the west side Turner hall, reviewing the issues of the day. Maine Election Returns. Lewibton, Me., Sept. 14.—The Journal has returns from 453 towns, as follows: Cleaves (Rep,), 66.245; Johnson (Dem.), 53,671; Hussey (Pro.), 3,206; Bateman 2,645.

He held an in formal reception at the hotel, with three hours hand-shaking. Tomorrow a great mass meeting will be held. A VERY SICK WOMAN. Mn. Harrison's Condition Ia Extremely Precarious. Loon Lake House, N. V., Sept. 14.— Drs. Gardner of Washington, Dougherty of New York, and Trudeau of Saranac, had a consultation at the president's cottage this morning, in regard to Mrs. Harrison, and at its conclusion issued the following statement: "The primary disease is pulmonary tuberculosis of the right lung, associated with nervous prostration, a recent com plication of sub-acute pleurisy, with a rapid effusion of water in the right chest, necessitating two tappings with some relief. The present condition is critical on account of a tendency to the reproduction of the fluid. Removal to Washington is impossible. A prognos tication as to the immediate future, is uncertain." Lieutenant Parker said this morning: "The President will remain with Mrs. Harrison until she getts better. He has no other plans whatever." It is therefore apparent that the president's stay here is indefinite. The physicians, it is said, bave quietly inti mated to the president the strong prob ability of a fatal result. The president rarely leaves Mrs. Harrison's bedside. In fact he really shares the nursing of the invalid with a professional attend ant. Russell Harrison and Mrs. McKee, the president's son and daughter, are also in constant attendance. The best that can be said of Mrs. Har rison's condition tonight is that it is no worse than it was this morning. All her friends now realize that any new complications will be attended with the greatest danger. Mrs. Harrison's vital ity is at a very low ebb and cannot suc cessfully resist further inroads. Dr. Gardner said this evening that there was a slight improvement, and the fluid bad not gathered in her chest as rapidly as before. It is learned, how ever, from other sources, tbat the pro duction of the fluid is sufficient in quan tity to indicate that another operation may be necessary tomorrow, unless a decided improvement takes place in the meantime. A Lone Highwayman 4 Amaroo, N. M., Sept. 14 — I\\e mail coach from Pagosa springs to A margo was held up yesterday by a lone highway man. One passenger was robbed of a small sum and about $1,000 was taken from a registered mail package. Your fall suit should be made b y Geu.
