The Bohemia Pronounced a Second Boandla— The Normannla's Pail enger* Released from Quar antine. By the Associated Press.] New York, Sept. 16.—The morning wae clear and chilly, and it ia becoming evident that front ia not far away. No eymptoma of a panic from cholera are reported from any part of the city, and everybody appears moat hopeful. The atreet cleaning department is hastening its effortß, and the odor of disinfectants is upon the air everywhere, showing that individuals are doing their part. Funds for protection are piling up daily. The chamber of commerce has raised $180,772. Behind all the local effort is the proven strength of the state, and its blunt and positive executive. He has eaid in an interview that "he don't care a damn" tor votes lost or won by any action taken by the governor to cave life during the present cholera trouble. The people have all read this statement of Governor Flower, aud yiey feel more than ever reassured. The health board has appointed 25 more physicians as sanitary inspectors, and increased the disinfecting corps by Bix more men. They have also asked for a detail of policemen at all houses where suspected caees of cholera exist. THIRTY SUSPECTED CASES, During tbe past 24 houra at leaat 30 cases of suspected cholera have been re ported at the health department. Mrs. Maria Spoaati, who was reported last night aa suffering from cholera, wae ex amined and found free from the disease. Dr. Laboucher reported thie morn ing that an Italian in Sullivan atreet last night was taken with vomiting and diarrhoea, and died two houra later. The case will be investigated. Dr. Edson aaya there ia little doubt that Mary Connerty, taken from No. 602 Second avenue, yesterday, haa cholera. She is sinking rapidly. John McAvoy, a atreet sweeper, waa found Buffering with crampa today. He waa taken to St. Vincent's hospital. Hia case ia being investigated. The health department reports that a bacte rilogical examination of the intestinal' contents from the body of Charlotte Beck, who died September lathi re vealed the presence of spirillum of Asiatic cholera. So far the board' of health haß been unable to trace the origin of the cholera casea which have occurred in the city. The medical staff of the penitentiary at Blackwell's island deny the story that one of tbe convicts is sick with the cholera. They Bay the prisoner is only suffering from colitis, with merely dysentery symptoms. According to the health board, there have been no caees of cholera in Brook lyn yet. The case of the Polish girl, Josephine Eiker, who died under bus piciouß circumstances yesterday, is offi cially announced to have been cholera morbus only. • A SECOND SCANDIA. The Bohemia ia another Scandia. The eleven deaths on the voyage are given aa due to gaatro-intestinal trouble by the doctor, but according to all appearances they are due to genuine Asiatic cholera. She left the plague-stricken city of Hambnrg Sept. 3, and three days later Sara Distor waa taken ill. It was no case of infantile dieeaee, as tbe woman in question was 25 yeare of age, and her little child Peahe wae taken off the same day. The next day Rewke Weßßli,agrown woman and two children succumbed. So it went on, day by day. There were two on the Bth, and then a stay of four days, when again a case was recorded; the twelfth day saw only one death, and then the peat rested until the day of her arrival, when three children, aged from 1 to 8, died within a few milea of port. On her arrival there were four sick on board, and they have been removed to Swinburne island by Dr. Byron. THE BOHEMIA'S PASSENGERS. Excitement ruled this morning in the offices of the Hamburg-American Packet company. Yeaterday the offices and the company'a works were in a normal condition. Few people inquired for missing friends, and the clerks were able to get at some of their work bo long neglected. But thie morning there waa a run upon the offices by those who wanted news from the Bohemia. Agent Curtis waa early at hia desk. "I con sider." said he, "the report of 11 deaths, all children, from tbe Bohemia, is good news. I queation very much whether they are genuine cholera cases. The Bohemia left Hamburg on August 31st, after most rigid measures had been taken looking to the prevention of a cholera outbreak. Not only was the baggage of the steerage diainfected daily for aeveral days, but each steerage pas senger was subjected to a quarantine of eight days before being allowed to go on tbe vessel." Dr. Byron telegraphs that he has vis ited the Bohemia. There are 633 steer age passengers, 10 cabin passengers and a crew of 77 aboard the vessel, all ap parently well. The condition of the veaael, as regarda cleanliness, is first rate. Dr. Walser has returned from lower quarantine. He reporta no new cases or deaths on board the steamer or islands. He waa on board the Bohemia, and says the cases were undoubtedly cholera. NORMANNIA PASSENGERS LANDED. The storm-buffeted passengers of the Normannia had another experience of delay this morning. They were released from quarantine and left Fire Island thia morning for New York. The tide waa out, however, and the Cepheua ran aground near Fire Island. She got over the bar safely, when the tide rose, and the passengers from the Normannia ar rived in New York this afternoon. There were thousands of men and women on the Hamburg company's pier, at Hoboken, when the Cepheus love in sight with the Normannia's passengers. The vessel was soon tied up, and as the passengers ran down the g-ing-plank they were welcomed by lriends in waiting. THE PLAGUE IN EUROPA. The Record for Hamburg Is 14,804 Cases and 6506 Deaths. Hamhukg, Sept. 16.—Cholera is again increasing here. Official figures yester day gave 222 new cases and 08 deaths, 18 cases in excess of Wednesday, and an increase of 17 deaths. Since the first outbreak of cholera in this city, 14,804 cases and 6506 deaths have been reported. The epidemic has entirely died out in the harbor quarter. St. Petersburg, Sept. 16. —Fifty-nine new cases of cholera were reported in this city yesterday, as against 55 the previous day. The deaths were only eight, nine less than tbe previous day. The epidemic ia still -virulent in the provinces of Saraioff, Samara, Simbirsk, Tambor, Kazan, Voronesh, Lublin and the Don territory. Havke, Sept. 16. —Fifteen new cases of cholera here yesterday, two more than Wednesday; three deaths, four less than Wednesday. Carelessness in London. London, Sept. 16.—A cargo of fruit from Hamburg, consigned to dealers in Covent Garden market, arrived here yesterday. The officers of the local gov ernment board were warned of its ar rival and at once went to examine it. Tbe found m Bt of the fruit in vans going to a factory in the East end, where cheap jams are manufactured. Though it is known that the fruit was gathered in districts that are being ravaged by cholera, the officials decided that it wa« sound and that they could not confiscate it. Twenty-six hampers of plums, part of the same cargo, were sent to Exeter, where they were prompt ly seized and burned by the health au thorities, who are less fastidious over the interpretation of legal enactments when the health and lives of the com munity are threatened. Emigrants in a Bad Fix. Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 16.—The govern ment has been apprised of the arrival at Quebec of a number of immigrants from Europe, with through tickets for tbe United States. The railway com panies absolutely refuse to allow the immigrants to board the trains, and the immigrants are simply stranded in the provincial capital. They want to take possession of the federal immigration buildings, but the government requires that these buildings be used for Cana dian immigrants only. Hence foreign bound arrivals are thrown on their own resources. Tbe difficulty will probably only be solved by tbe steamship com panies taking these people back to Europe. Needless Alarm. New York, Sept. 16.—The people of Greenpoint, Long Island, were need lessly alarmed over the report that two Russian women escaped from the pest ship Moravia and went to join their husbands at Greenpoint. A search of the records at Ellis island today re vealed the fact that the women came here on the Gallia on September 4tb, Ohio's Quarantine. Columbus, 0., Sept. 16.—The state board of health has decided to establish a quarantine agtinst all eastern cities as soon as possible, not later than next Sunday. No immigrant will be per mitted to come into the state, unless he has a full bill of health from tbe na tional authorities or the local officers at the port of entry. Other passengers with the disease will be quarantined. The President's Power. Washington, Sept. 16. —The attorney general has rendered an opinion declar ing that the president of the United States has power to totally exclude all vessels coming from any foreign port or country where any contagious disease may exist. This opinion would justify tbe president, in case he exercised his power, to totally bar out all vessels from cholera porte. Precautions at Nogales. Tucson, Ariz., Sept. 16.—The treasury department has appointed Dr. W. F. Chenoweth of Nogales sanitary commis sioner of that port, as a precaution to the entrance of cholera into the United States via Guay mas. DIAZ'S ADDRESS. The Mexloan President's Speech at the Opening: of Congress. City of Mexico, Sept. 16.—Congress was opened by President Diaz tonight. In his address, the president said the United States legation had requested )hat negotiations be opened fcr the irri gation of land on both sides of the Rio Grande river, and negotiations were now in progress. The marauders who had for some time infested the frontier, and caused much trouble to the Mexi can and Texas tioops, had disap peared. Every possible precaution against the introduction and spread of cholera in Mexico had been taken. Since April the government telegraph lines had been increased by 1500 kilometers, and over 300 kilometers of railroad lines were constructed. It was expected that the Tehuantepec railroad would be completed within 15 months, and the road to Oaxaca by October. The gov ernment receipts for the fiecal year ex ceeded $37,000,000, Notwithstanding the failure of crops, the rise in the price of exchange and bank business, the decrease in receipts shown by these figures was insignifi cant. All steps were taken to avoid the increase of the national debt, and a small loan of £600,000 would be more than sufficient to meet every demand. The beneficial effect of tbe new stamp law was apparent, and it was now pro posed to impose a tax upon liquors and tobacco. The president of the chamber, Sefior Trinidad Garcia, replied, echoing the sentiments of President Diaz. Your fall suit should be made by Getz.

They Are Charged With Destroying Public Records. Damaging Testimony Against the Au thor of That Famons lteport on the McKinley Tariff and Wages. By the Associated Press.] Albany, K. V., Sept. 16 —At 5 o'clock this afternoon, at the request of District Attorney Eaton, warrants were ieeued for the arrest of Charles E. Peck, com missioner of the state bureau of labor statistics, and his stenographer, Elbert Rodgers, by Police Justice Gutman. The arrests were made under section 04 of the Penal Code, which makes it a mis demeanor, punishable by imprisonment for five years, or a fine of $500, or both, to destroy public records. The charge is that certain circulars and statistics received by Peck from manu facturers of this state, from which to compile his report on the effect of the McKinley tariff on wages and produc tion, have been removed from his office and destroyed. The proceedings leading to the issu ance of the warrants began this morn ing before Judge Gutman, behind closed doors. Those present were District At torney Eaton, Corporation Counsel Dellebanty and ex Senator Norton Chase. Janitor Dennison, of the house where Peck and Rodgers room, stated, in examination, that two weeks ago an expressman brought 25 packages to the home and stored them in Peck's room. Last Sunday Peck gave him (Dennison) $2 to take them down and burn them in the furnace. Dennison did so, being kept busy from Sunday afternoon until 3 o'clock Monday morning, burning packages. Norton Chase said after the warrants had been issued, that he bad proof that, if not all, at least a part, of the tariff circulars received by Peck for his report had been burned. Commissioner Peck said tonight that he and Rogers had been served with notice to answer the warrants tomorrow morning. He then said: "The securing of these warrants of arrest is the cul mination of the fight made by tbe Mug wumps and anti-Hill Democrats on Gov ernor Hill and hia frienda. and it ia all they can expect henceforth from these quarters." A committee sent by tbe national i Democratic committee, comprising Nel | son Smith, J. Schoonhoff, Ellery An derson and Edward F. McSweeney, I called on Peck this afternoon, and labored over an hour with him, endeav oring to secure the namea of the manu facturers reporting to him tbe effect of the tariff on their respective industries; also to get individual returns. Peck held to hia original statement, that be would Bhow nothing but what was con tained in hia annual report, which waa hardly what the committee was after. The discussion waa very heated at times. Finally Smith read a lot of questions, which, he said, if answered, would Batiafy the committee. Peck said most of the questions could be an swered by reference to hia report, but he volunteered no answers. REPUBLICAN CLUBS. Clarkson Re-elected President—White law Reid on the nostrum.

Sept. 16.—A report reached this city today that the Teme scal tin mines have been closed down. The cause assigned is that there has been a disagreement between tbe own ers and employes, regarding wages. From a South Riverside party, who ia in the city tonight, it is learned for a certainty that the Temescal tin mines have been closed down. The informant gleaned the news from a man who runs a boarding house at tbe mines, and who visited South Riverside today. The cause given for tbe suspension of work is that there are no funds to pay the workmen with. The mines are located in an out-of-the-way place, and it is a difficult matter to get news from there, but there is no question as to the truth of the shut-down. Several days ago a number of hands were discharged at the mines, and today those remaining were discharged. A Waterworks Trust.
