Eleven Deaths on the Steamer Dur ing the Voyage From Europe. One New Case and Several Suspected Ones in New York C.ty—One Death In Brooklyn — Suspicious Cases at New Haven. By the Associated Press.] New York, Sept. 16.—The Herald says: Another plague ship is in port, and another story of disease and death on the voyage; eleven more victims to the long list of those who died of cholera between Hamburg and New York. This is the story of the steamship Bohemia, which reached New York last night and anchored in lower quarantine. The Herald tug, which bad been waiting for her inside the Hook, drew up alongside as she steamed in, and Captain Schroder, came to the rail to tell about tbe voyage. He admitted the essential facts of the misfortunes that had befallen the company. "We had II deaths on board," said the cap tain ; "all little children. There is no sickness on board at v resent." "Was it cholera?"" "I can't tell. The laßt death was five days ago; nobody has been ill since then." "How long after you left port did the first death occur?" "About tbe fourth day. No adult paasengersMied or have been sick." CHOLERA IN GOTHAM. One More Genuine Case and Three Sns- pects In the Hospital, Nkw Yobk, Sept. 15.—Mary Oonnerly. a 19 year-old • girl who came from Ire land six months ago, was removed to the reception hospital today, from a ten ement at 692 Second avenue, suffering from what is pronounced to be genuine cholera. It is not known bow she got the plague. Orders were issued to have the girl removed at once to tbe reception hospital, at the foot of East Sixteenth street. No. 692. Second avenue, is also a tenement in which eight families live. Tbe bouse was thoroughly disinfected today, and the bedding on which tbe sick girl lay, was taken away and burned. All her cloth ing waa aldo burned. Employes of the health department visited Mrs. Finn's boarding house, where the girl recently washed, and took away tbe bed in wbich she slept there, and whatever clothing she bad. Everything waa burned to destroy in fection. The boarding bouse waa aleo disinfected. Mra. Finn's boarders, eight in number, are professional people. They are badly scared. A phyeician has been detailed to watch tbe house from which tbe girl was re moved. A large crowd gathered, and it took several policemen to keep the crowd back. It is believed tbat tbe girl will die. The physicians are in possession of some of tbe girl's vomit for biological examination. Thia is tbe first case of cholera reported in the city in which the patient is alive. Three suspected cases of cholera were reported to the health authorities to night, but upon investigation by ex perts, they were pronounced to be cholera morbus and cramps. THE FIRST CASE IN BROOKLYN. The first caae of death from suspected cholera occurred in Brooklyn today. Josephine Malecka, 21 years old, of 526 State street, waa taken ill yesterday. At night she passed into a state of col lapse ; today she vomited, and when a physician was called she was dead. Tbe girl bad eaten heartily of green corn and tomatoes, and her case was put down ac cholera morbus. A bacterial examina tion ia now being made. The girl ar rived frqm Poland in January. THE MAYOR ISSUES A PROCLAMATION. After a conference, thia aiternoon, with President Wilaon, of the health department, and Preeident Porter, of the department of charities and corrections, On tbe outbreak of cholera in the city, Mayor Grant gave out a proclamation to the public, reciting the appearance of cholera in the city, and the means taken to combat it. Tbe mayor calls for confidence in the provisions taken, and says excessive fear on the part of tbe public iB not jus tified. Cholera, says the proclamation, ia neither infectious nor contagioua within the common meaning of the word, nor ia it in the opinion of an eminent authority aa dangerous as diphtheria. Tbe public will be intelligently advised aB to the progress of tbe disease. The paper closes: "Beat assured that all will be done by the authorities to meet every emergency, and with the confi dence of the public, and aid in enforc ing the sanitary regulations, cholera will be mastered, health restored, and peace, order and happiness main tained." CIRCULARS DISTRIBUTED. Sanitary Superintendent Edaon had a conference with Police Superintendent Byrneß, and over 200,000 cholera circu lars are being distributed through the city. They are printed in English, Ger man, Hebrew, Italian and Bohemian. The work of fitting a floating hospital at the foot of Sixteenth street, for the re ception of cholera patients, is being hurried along. CHARITABLE OFFERINGS. Among the nurses offering their ser vices are many young women of refine ment and education. The attire of sev eral indicated a life of ease and wealth. There have been many male applicants also. Millionaire Hearst - has cabled from Paris, placing at the disposal of tbe physicians composing the medical con ference appointed by the chamber of commerce, tbe use of hia famous yacht Yamoos. J. Pierpont Morgan, treasurer of the chamber of commerce quarantine emer gency fund, hug acknowledged the re ceipt of an additional $72,335 in cub- BC'iptions since noon yesterday. He had previously acknowledged $58,300, making the total to date $130,635. FAVORABLB WBATIIEK. The (lay opened bright and frosty, jußt the kind of weather to prevent the spread of cholera. The few cases which hsve appeared here, and which were concealed by the board of health, hay in no way alarmed the authorities or the citizens. The people here bave become educated up to the point of having little or no fear of the formerly much dreaded disease. A PROBABLE SOURCE OF INFECTION. ' Immigrant paesengers of the steamer Friesland, which arrived here August 29th, teem to have brought tho disease to little Minnie Levinger, who died Sep tember 11th. They are traced back to Antwerp, which they reached from other cities of Europe, doubtless infected with cholera. When they reached quaran tine there was no illness reported aboard, and after a few hours' deten tion and fumigation, they were allowed to proceed. Prom the steamship pier the paesingers scattered over the city and country. Four young women went to the house where little Minnie lived. The infection was probably in their clothing, as they escaped attack them selvee. Dr. Jenkins evidently does not put faith in this theory, and explains that his deputy reported no illness fin the Friesland when she arrived. He ad mitted, however, that it might be pos sible.

After ex pressing regret at being unable to at tend, Mr. Cleveland writes tbat he thoroughly appreciates tbe work being done in California by the Democratic clubs, and the encouraging .re ports he hears from California concerning the political condition of the state, is greatly emphasized by the knowledge of the existence of these organizations. "If properly con ducted, I believe tbem to be of great value," says he. R. P. Hammond jr. was elected presi dent of the league by acclamation. H. O. Jastro and Martin C. Marab, of Lob Angelea, are among the vice-presi dents elected. REPUBLICAN CLUBS. Convention or tne National League at Buffalo. . Buffalo, N. V., Sept. 15.—The fifth annual convention of the National League of Republican clubs was held here today. After prayer and an ad dress of welcome by Judge Haight, President Clarkeon arose amid applause. He acknowledged the welcome, and ex plaining tbe falling off in the expected attendance, said it was largely due to the cholera scare keeping away many delegates. Roll call showed that thirty-two states and three territories were represented. On motion of Campbell, of Illinois, college club delegates were seated. Pres ident Burke, of the college clubs was loudly called for. Responding, he as sured the convention tbat on the Bth day of November they would be found doing valiant work for the Republican ticket. President Clarkson's annual address was largely devoted to the organization and progress of the league and its work as a new element in politics. In tbe course of bis remarks he said: "The rising question of the time, the one for which the next national campaign is surely to be fought, is the labor ques tion. By tbat time, the McKinley bill will have fully demonstrated the wis dom of tbe American policy, and will have gained the approval of the major ity of American homes, as the perma nent policy of the republic. Next No vember tbe workingmen add farmers and business men, and all elements will join in striking down the declaration of ! the Democratic platform of 1892 in favor of free trade as the American rule, and free trade wages for American working men. The same good elements, I am PRICE FIVE CENTS. sure, will also strike down with equal emphasis of disapproval, the Democratic declaration in favor of destroying our preeent system of currency and finance for a return to the wretched and disas trous form of state banks and unsound currency. Music ball waß filled in the evening when Mr. Clarkton introdcced the firßt speaker, Hon. J. P. Dolliver, of lowa. Dolliver spoke on the issues of the day, and on the careers of the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates. He said an astonishing feature of cur rent politics was, that the Republican party bad permitted itself to throw aside its past record of great achievements, and fight it out on the history of the past month. IS the past had no lessons, and no inspirations, he would freely con fess he could bring neither interest nor enthusiasm into the present campaign. •'Let us, as Republicans, keep alive the memories of past years," he cried. "Let not the history of the United States be come obsolete to suit the demands of the Democratic party." Governor McKinley was tbe next in troduced, and for Borne time the hall was in a perfect uproar, the audience rising en masse and greeting the gov ernor with the waving of hats and handkerchiefs. He spoke for some time on the "two striking questions raised by tbe platform of our political adversaries—first, its adherence to free trade; and, second, ita declaration for the abolition of the tax on state banks of issue." McKinley outlined the evils which would result from a step backward in the currency matter, and said the Dem ocratic proposal for the abolition of tbe tax on state banks ought to be sufficient of itself to defeat tbe Democratic party. He then turned bis attention to tne evils of free trade, etc., and said the new tariff law had vindicated itseif. Ore gon's election in June spoke for it, and had . been followed by Ver mont and Maine. As to tin plate, he told what he saw at Elwcod, Ind., Tuesday. In that factory all the ma chinery aaed was made in the United States, and the aheet Bteel used in the manufacture of tin-plate, was also .made in this country. "The Beinocrata said we could not make steel rails, nor pot tery, nor plate glass," said he, "but we are making them as good as any where in the world, and so it is with tin-plate. The American people can make any thing, they want, and with "adequate protection, will." The speaker, »in closing, warmly eulogized General Clarkson as a match less leader. a Hon. John M. Thurston of Nebraska requested every young man present to vote for the party of protection. He said every leader of the so-called inde pendent party has been a failure in some other political party. Hon. J . Sloat Faseett and others aleo apoke. THE CAMPAIGN IN IOWA. Governor Bole* Open* His Batteries on tbe ICneiny. Cabrobl, la., Sen*. 15.-*-Qovernor Horace Boiee opened the campaign by a stirring speech in this city today, in tbe presence of thousands of enthusiastic Democrats. In bis speech be declared this to be the most important campaign in recent years. The tariff question was the great issue, and the time for the farmers to demand relief from un just, unequal and excessive taxation had arrived. He made an exhaustive tariff argument and produced statistical proof of his remarkable statement of two years ago, tbat estimating farm wages at the same rate as city wages, ' lawa crops had sold for 67 centß per acre less than it cost to produce J.hem. Gov ernor Boies also discussed the force bill, currency and other planks of the na tional platform, and denounced the present prohibitory law in lowa. STEVENSON IN THE SOUTH. He BnllghteDg the North Carollnans on the Issues of the Campaign. Abhville, N. C, Sept. 15.—Hon. A. E. Stevenson spoke in the presence of thousands of people here today. His speech was entirely devoted to the fcrce bill, which he denounced as a scheme of the Republican party and administra tion to perpetuate themselves in power.
