Four Thousand Souls Detained at Quarantine. Citizens of lalip Again Threaten to Invade Fire Island—A Warm Re ception In Store for Them. The Plague Abroad. By the Associated Press. 1 New York, Sept. 17.—The following bulletin was issued at the health bu reau this afternoon: No cases nor suspected cases of chol era have appeared in the city since the last bulletin. The total number of deaths from cholera is five. The first was on September 6th, and the last on September 13th. Of the three cases heretofore reported as suspicious in the case of Ed ward Hopoe, a bacteriological examination of clothing stained with ejecta failed to reveal the presence of spirilli of cholera Asiatic. Less interest is being taken hy the pubhc in cholera news, and the people appear to have lost the nervous appre hension which prevailed at the outset. TWO NEW CASKS OF QUARANTINE. Dr. Sanborn, who returned from lower quarantine tonight, reports that a new case has developed on board the Scandia. The patient is Regina Weis fikopf, 65 years of age, and Dr. Byron transferred her to Swinburne island to day. She is very sick with cholera, and unlikely to I've through the night. From Dr. Byron is received the news of a case of cholera on board the Bo hemia. The patient's name is Jeanette Chaimowitz, 28 years old. She was re moved today from the steamer and taken to Swinburne island. ISLIPERS AGAIN OBSTREPEROUS. P. T. Wall, m charge of the Surf hotel, on Fire island, Bent Dr. Jenkins, at 0:20 p. m., the following telegram : "I have received from the board of health of Islip notice to vacate the premises within three days, or they would call on the citizens of the county to stop the land ing of baggage. Captain Cochrane, com manding tbe militia here, says all steam ship baggage received here will be properly protected. We are in every way prepared to give them a warm re ception." Dr. Jenkins wired Mr. Wall to resist to the utmost any attempt of- the Isttp people to take possession' of the island. Captain Cochrane telegraphed Gov ernor Flower this evening that the Islip board of health had directed the sheriff of the county to take possession of Fire island, eject all passengers and baggage, and prevent the landing of more. Gov ernor Flower replied this evening that the Islip board of health had no juris diction over Fire island, and to protect the quarantine line established by Dr. Jenkins, against all trespassers. Gov ernor Flower said if more men were needed, to call on Adjutant-General Porter. The governor also telegraphed Porter to the same effect. Later advices from Fire Island state that the excitement subsided when it was learned that the resolutions served were old and probably served in order to comply with the legal formalities neces sary in the event of suits to recover penalties which the town of Islip may bring. the Wyoming's passengers rebel. The passengers of the steamer Wyom ing positively refused to be transferred to Fire island, this morning, stating that the vessel was not infected. Dr. Jenkins says ha will have tbem removed tomor row, whether they will or not. The second cabin aud steerage passen gers of the Wyoming, which has been held in quarantine since September 6th, have issued appeals to the public. Tbey protest against the detention of 700 per sons, cramped in unwholesome quarters aboard the ship, when the vessel came in with a clean bill of health, save the indisposition of a baby that bad been delic ate since its birth ; that the deten tion resulted in the death of four chil dren and a serious shock to their moth ers ; that many other children aboard are threatened with sickness, due to the foul air of the ship; that though no cases of cholera have appeared since the ship left Liverpool, twenty days ago, yet its close proximity to infected ships is a constant menace to the health of the passengers. In view of the above facts, tbe signers demand the immediate re lease of the ship from quarantine. FOUR THOUSAND SOULS IN QUARANTINE. The steamer Fuerst Bismarck arrived this morning with 447 cabin passengers, all well; no steerage passengers. Among the passengers were Hon. A. G. Porter, ex-minister to Rome, and Hon. R. J. Porter, ex-chief oi the census. The Mohawk, from London, also ar rived, with all well on board. There were 67 cabin passengers and 55 steer age. Senator Ingalla iB among the for mer. There are now nearly 4000 souls de tained at quarantine, the Bothnia, Ser via and City of Chester having been added last night. The Cunarder Etruria has 563 fi ist and 75 second cabin passengers, all well, aud no steerage. Among her passengers are Mr. and Mrß. Augustin Daly and Miss Ada Rehan, Mr. w, Lane Booker, Brit ish consul general, and Hon. W. and Mrs. Endicott. The steamers Etruria, Fuerst Bis marck and City of Chester were released this afternoon. The Bothhia will be held until tomorrow for fumigation. One of the Bohemia's passengers died this morning. The Moravia will be discharged in a day or two, and the passengers landed at Ellis Island. Tbe cabin passengers of the Wyoming and Rugia are to trans ferred later in the day to Fire Island. The cabin passengers of the State of Nevada have already come up to the city. The steerage will come up to mono w. The Scandia's 1000 passengers were reclothed today and sent to Gamp Low. Their own clothing, when disinfected, will be returned to them. THE YELLOW FLAG AGAIN. Sandy Hook, N. J., Sept. 17.—The steamer Scnndia has hoisted the yellow flag, A water famine is prevailing on the steamers, and the flag may only in dicate that relief is required in that re spect. IN THE OLD WORLD. The Scourge ln Europe Shows Some Signs of Abating. Berlin, Sept. 17.—[Copyright 1892, by the New York Associated Press.]— The residents of Hamburg feel very sore over the lack of sympathy and abun dance of hostile feeling with which they were treated by most of the German authorities, tbe press and people, dur ing the present troubles. The leading Hamburg papers go so far as to advo cate a commercial boycott of the towns and watering places which refused an asylum to residents who fled from Ham burg. Hamburg's business has suffered si terrible set-hack. The prompt action of Chancellor Yon Caprivi in appointing an imperial health commission for the whole Elbe territory, and the no less prompt action of Herr Richtbofen, in supporting tbe commission, has done much to establish a feeling of security among the masses. During tbe past week six of the largest banks in Berlin have opened subscription lists for the relief of the cholera sufferers in Ham burg, the emperor heading them with a nubacription of 30,000 marks. Prof. Koch thinks a rapid subsidence of the Hamnurg epidemic is probable. Hamburg, Sept. 17. —The official chol era statistics for yesterday placed the number of new cases at 276 and deaths at 136. The doctors believe the general situation is more favorable today. St. Petersburg, Sept. 17.—There were reported in St. Petersburg yesterday, forty-eight new cases of cholera and fifteen deaths, eleven less cases and seven more deaths than Thursday. Sixty cholera patients were discharged from tbe hospitals yesterday. Havre, Sept. 17.—Only three new cases of cholera were reported in the city yesterday, against 15 for the day before. The deaths yesterday num bered five, two more than occurred Thursday. Paris, Sept. 17.—Le Petit Journal says cholera broke out in Napes several days ago; and that 8 or 10 deaths are occur ring daily. A DAMAGE SUIT. First Fruit of the Cholera Scare at San Diego. San Diego, Sept. 17.—The Sun says: Evidence that the health officers will take no chances with cholera, was proved yesterday when word came that Dr. J. G. Miller, of Atchison, en route to visit his nephew here, bad died on the train at Indio. No cause was given, and the Los Angeles health board detained the body for an autopsy, which showed that the cause was heart disease. Meanwhile a trunk came in here on the afternoon train, not labeled, and believed to be the dead man's baggage. Health Officer Magee at once thoroughly fumigated tbe trunk, which turned out to belong to Mr. De hoe, from El Paso, who declares he will sue the city for heavy damages. They Object to the Embargo. New York, Sept. 17.—At a meeting of the officers of the Pacific Mail, at which were present tbe consular representa tives of most of the Central and South American republics, a vigorous protest waa unanimously subscribed against tbe action of the Colombian government placing an embargo on vessels from European and the United Statea Atlan tic porta. The Panama Railroad com pany haa notified the Colombian gov ernment that ita action ia in violation of ita chartered rights, and will hold the government responsible for money dam ages. ■ Quarantine at Colon. New York, Sept. 17. —According to a Herald cable from Panama, the Pacific Mail liner Newport was refused pratique at Colon yesterday. The officers found all well on board, but 10 passengers had no certificate from the Colombian consul at New York. The Newport was ordered to anchor four miles out of port. Going to Consult With the President. Washington, Sept. 17. —Secretary John W. Foster will leave here tonight for Loon lake, to confer with the presi dent relative to a letter from Mayor Grant, requesting the president to take some steps to restrict immigration dur ing the cholera epidemic. Canada Quarantines Against New York. Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 17.—An extra edi tion of the Canada Gazette was issued today, containing a proclamation of quarantine on the Canadian border against passengers and merchandise from the city of New York. Means a Quarantine. Washington, Sept. 17.—The United States minister to Norway and Sweden cables that Sweden has declared the United States ports on the east coast in fected. It is presumed this means a quarantine. Cholera On a Ship at Baltimore. Baltimore, Sept. 17.—1t is believed the steamship Baltimore, from Liver pool, which arrived yesterday, haa two cases of cholera on board. She is held at the quarantine station, pending an investigation. A Plagu Ship at Buenos Ayres. New York, Sept..l7.—The Herald'a Valparaiso special saya: "The ateamer America haa arrived at Buenos Ayres from Genoa She had on the voyage 24 deaths from cholera, and haß been quarantined A Water Front Tragedy. San Francisco, Sept. 17 —Charles Steinforth shot and instantly killed T. Anderson, and then shot and killed him' elf, in a water front saloon to night. Both men were sailors and a feud had existed between them some time. They quarreled in the saloon to night, and'the shooting was the result. A Perpetual Holiday. Madrid, Sept. 17 —The government has decided to declare October 12th a perpetual national holiday, in com memoration of the discovery of America. Your fall suit should be made by Getz.

All the Virtues Embraced iv the People's Platform. The Two Tourist Candidates Claim to Be Able to Carry the Booth on a Free Ballot and a Fair Connt. By the Associated Press.] Penkacola, Fla., Sept. 17.—General Weaver aud General Field, the People's party candidates for president and vice president, have issued an address to the people of the United States. In part they cay: We take this method of formally noti fying the public of our acceptance of the nominations, and our appreciation of the honor conferred upon us. We are heartily in accord with the platform of principles adopted by the People's party convention, and, if elected,wili endeavor to faithfully carry out the demands in letter and spirit. We were requested by the national committee to visit the various states of the union. Already one or both of us have visited 15 states, and if health and strength is spared, we intend to con tinue the work until the campaign i« closed. We are received with marked cordiality, and . tbe enthusiasm every where is without a parallel, and extends to every part of the union we visited. By contact with the people, we become acquainted with their wants and suffer ings, and are brought face to face with the manifold perils which so seriously threaten our civilization and the over throw of popular government. The people are in poverty. Their sub stance is being devoured by heartless monopolists, trusts, pool and money sharks. Labor is largely unemployed, and where work is obtainable, the wages paid are for the moat part unre munerative, and tbe products of labor are not paying the cost of production. The leaders of tbe heretofore domi nant parties are everywhere controlled by the, great monopolies and money centres, and manifest an utter disregard for the wants and wishes of tbe people. They are hostile camps arranged on sec tional lines, but vie with each other in subservience to capitalistic and corpor ate greed. Upon general economy Jacd the questions of tbe age they are practi cally the same in purpose, differing just enough to enable them to carry on a sham battle. The whole work of rob bery and spoliation proceeds unabated. We hold the right of a free ballot and a free count, the right preservative of all rights, and upon its inviolability rests the perpetuity of free institutions and representative government. We are pained to discover in the public mind of the southern statea a wide-spread loss oi confidence on the part of the people in the integrity of the judges of elections in receiving the ballots of the people and counting them for the candidates of their choice. We think evils must be corrected by the intelligence and integrity of the people. Otherwise scenes of violence, and per haps bloodshed, may follow these efforts of the parties in charge of the ballot boxes to defraud the will of the voter. After a consultation with the people, we believe it to be true, beyond reasona ble question, that tbe majority of the white voters are with the People's party in every southern state thus far visited, and our information leads us to believe the same thing ia true in other states also. We are informed that in the recent state election in Alabama, Captain Kolb was chosen gov ernor by over 40,000 majority, and yet his opponent was counted In by a majority of over 10,000. County tickets throughout the state were counted out, and others counted in, by the same un blushing methods. We are Informed that in the state election in Arkansas, on the 17th of September, at least 50,000 qualified voters of the state were deprived of their right of suffrage. Tbe returns are inaccurate. The People's party was denied representation in tbe appointment of judges and com missioners. The only thing our friends in the state have to guide them in, is a few counties where they were able to force an honest count. In every one of these counties our vote ran fully up to the expectations. In some populous white counties, the People's party bold an immense vote, tbe ticket leading the Republican largely, and ■ bout equal with the Democratic. We believe a fair com t would show similar condition through out the state. These frauds and irregu larities, though local, are yet matters worthy of the serious consideration of the whole United States. It is apparent that neither the Republican party or the Democratic party can, or will ac complish the restoration of the ballot to a fair and honest basis. The People's party alone can secure the desired end. All who desire a revival of business; all who wish for a return of prosperity; all who desire to relieve the depressed industries and wage woikers of our common country; all who desire an adequate increase of our currency and free coinage of silver; all who desire the abolition of banks of issue and constitutional control of tbe great instruments of commerce by the government of the United States; all who desire that the laws for taxation shall be equitably adjusted to property of the country; all who desire that tbe public domain shall be sacredly held in trust for tbe people; all who desire that the highways between the states Bhall be rendered eubservient to the popular good, and., finally, "" all who* de sire the restoration of fraternity among the people and the obliteration of sectional animosities, should at once regard it a conscientious duty to align themselves under the banner of this great industrial and fraternal move ment. It seems to as quite impossible that the liberty and justice-loving people of PAGES 1 TO 8. PRICE FIVE CENTS. the country should longer cast their ballots for the corporations and money changers. It would seem i japoseible that they should refuse, nnd make common c.suee with the fair minded mt)jor;ty of the people of the the souib, who have risen up to demand justice and good government in the re epective states. The new party has its face turned to a glorious future, Its sublime miepion is to ueher in an era of frater nity and justice amoug men. In the presence of tuch an opportunity to emancipate our country from misrule of every kind, let party 1 nes be forgotten and the gener ous name of common patriotism nerve every heart and move every soul. MR. PECK'S PERFIDY. He and Hia Stenographer Held In $10, --000 Ball Kuch. Albany, N. V., Sept. 17.—Labor Com missioner Peck and his stenographer, Elbert Rodgers. appeared before Police Justice Guttman this morning, and each one, after pleading not guilty to the charges against him, was held in $10, --000 bail, and the caße adjourned until September 29th. An Associated Press reporter silted Governor Flower tonight if he bad ta ken any action regarding the removal of Labor Commissioner Peck. The gover nor replied that he was not yet entirely >familiar with the facts in tbe case; that he had Peck's resignation in his hands since last winter, but never considered it. If Peck committed a rniedemeanof in destroying public documents, it saved him (the governor) tbe necessity of ac cepting his resignation. Regarding the infernal machine, the governor said last Wednesday he re ceived a letter telling him he waa to get a package, and not to open it until it had been thoroughly staked iv water. The governor turned the letter over to the police. This is all he knew abcut it. Reld Speaks in Brooklyn. New York, Sept. 17. —The reception at the Union League club, Brooklyn, to ni«ht, to Whitelaw Reid, was the event of the Republican campaign thus far. Previous to the reception. Mr. Reid re viewed a parade containing OOiiO uni formed Republicans. Then, after shak ing hands with the gentlem-n in the club house, Mr. Reid addressed tbe as semblage, reviewing the isEuea of the campaign. The Democratic Sweep in Arkansas.

There I* Beason to Believe That She Will Live for Some Time. Loon Lake, N.Y., Sept. 17.—This was the most favorable day Mrs. HarriEon has experienced since Bhe was rtricken down with pleurisy, nearly 10 days ago, and the physicians express confidence this evening of her recovery from that particular complication. They gravely admit, however, that the terrible Eeeda of consumption are still present, and apt to continue a steady inroad en her con stitution. The manner in -which she haa over come the attendant complication en courages them to believe she et ill has a fighting chance against the more serious malady with which she ia attacked. The report that she has cancer of tbe stomach, ia emphatically, denied by both Dr. Doughty and Dr. Gardner. President Harrison was f eliog more cheerful this morning. Dr. Gardner, after an examination of Mrs. Harrison, stated that she was much improved. The balance of tho fluid waa withdrawn from ber chest yesterday. She stood the operation well, and now retains some, nourishment, and for the first time since her illness is able to lie on her back. VETERANS CONGREGATING.

Washington, Sept. 17.—1t can safely be said that never before has Washing-, ton been so gaily dreeeed and shown such enthusiasm r.s upon the occasion of the Grand Army encampment, the prep arations for which are practically com pleted. All through last nitrht trains arriving at two stations brought visitors to the city, and no small number of G. A. R. men were included.
