No New Cases In the City for Several Days. Cheering- Reports Continue to Come from Quarantine. A Suspicious Death on the State of Ne vada at Her Dock — A Cholera Scare lv New Jersey—Reports from Abroad. By the Associated Press. 1 Loon Lakb, Sept. 18.—President Har rison received a telegram tonight from the secretary of the treasury saying tho cholera crisis is practically past, and that there appears to be no longer any danger of tbe spread of the disease. NO new casks in new yoke. New York, Sept. 18.—The board of health issued a bulletin this afternoon, in which it stated that no cases of ins pected cholera has appeared since the last bulletin, and ho deaths from cholera had occurred since Thursday. The re port of the bacteriologists in the case of Mary Connerty, a suspected cholera case, was to the effect that no spirillium of cholera was discovered. THE PLAGUE KNOCKED OUT. Quarantine, Sept. 18—The only death reported among the detained ships today, was that of a child on board the "-'candia, who died of maras mus. There were no new capes and no deaths on board any of the chips, or on tbe islands, and it would appear that tbe cholera spectre is now safely de tented. Tbe Rugia will diecharge her cargo into tbe lighters tomorrow, and will go back to Hamburg. Tbe Suevia, probably, in a day or two, will be allowed to come up, having no sickness on board. Dr. Jenkins thinks he will soon be able to release the Rugia'a cabin passen gers, now on the New Hampshire. For some reason not explained, the ill-fated Normannia uill be detained in lower quarantine for some time longer. The Wyoming and Scandia's steerage passengers will go to Hoffman island to morrow. The' cabin passengers of La Bretagne wil 1 be tranferred to the city tomorrow, but the steamer will be de tained awhile. The Moravia and Helig oland may be also released tomorrow. THE MIDNIGHT CENSUS. Dr. Byron, in his midnight census re port from Swinburne Island, says: "All vessels O. K. Brought from steamer Bohemia the body of a child which, after a few bona*' illness, died. No di agnosis. Will hold autopsy and report) as soon as possible. Our patients improv ing rapidly. Ooe new case of measles in hospital. Admitted dead, three; transferred to Hoffman, five; transferred to convalescent ward, one; transferred to sick ward, two; total sick, 11; suspects and convalescent, 25. Tbe names of the dead are: Emil Laskow ecky, aged 2years, from the Bohemia; Lopsy Radowetzkio, 2 years, from tbe Scandia; Nils Gurty Kellywich, 1 year, from the Wyoming. A SUSPICIOUS CASE. New York, Sept. 19.—John Knox, a fireman on the Allen line steamer Nevada, which arrived here September 14th, was found dead on the deck of the steamer, near one of the hatchways this evening. Tbe man complained of a bad attack of diarrhea this morning, and when he was discovered dead, Cap tain Maine at once notified the health authorities. Dr. Charles T. Roberts, chief of the bureau of contagious dis eases, after making an examination or dered the steamer thoroughly fumigated, and also closed the pier, and quaran tined those on tbe ship. The Nevada was not detained at quarantine last Wednesday, having exhibited a clean bill of health. WYOMING PASSENGERS LANDED. Fire Island, Sept. 18.—Not the slight (lt opposition was offered by the Islip health authorities or bay men to the landing of the Wyoming's passengers today. In fact not one was either to be seen afloat or ashore. Dr. Voight and Manager P. T. Wall had the arrange ments bo complete for quietly and pleasantly unloading the new arrivals, that within an hour after landing, every one had possession of a room and dined. No sickness among the passengers is re ported. TROOPS ORDERED TO FIRE ISLAND. New York, Sept. 18.—Adjutant Gen eral Porter, at noon today, ordered the Thirteenth regiment to get under arms as soon as possible and proceed to Fire island. Great difficulty was experienced in drumming up the men, as it was Sun day, and they were scattered in all di rections. At 6:05 p. m. 75 men from various companies had reported for duty, and they, started for Babylon. It is thought 150 to 200 men will be in readi ness to go down tomorrow. HUNGRY IMMIGRANTS AT CAMP LOW. Camp Low, N. J., Sept. 18.—The un fortunate steerage passengers of the steamer Normannia and Rugia were landed here today. No sooner were the passengers landed than General Hami - ton, on hearing they had had nothing to eat today, ordered dinner served to them. That the poor immigrants were hungry, was plainly evidenced by the rush they made for the food. Tbe women and children were looked after by a corps of women attendants. Nearly all tbe passengers are loud in their denunciation of tbe officials of the Hamburg-American line, on account of tbe treatment tbey re ceived on tbe steamers. CHOLERA IN NEW JERSEY. A Canal Boat Captain Stricken Down With the Plagne. New Brunswick, N. J., Sept. 18, — James Carr, a canal-boat captain, was stricken with cholera this morning, and thia evening is very low. The case is pronounced Asiatic cholera by Dr. Bald win, inspector of the board of health. ' Carr died this evening. He suffered little daring the few hours he lived. Dr. Edeon of New York will make an I examination of the body, which was by ' order of the mayor wrapped in an tiseptic blankets and deposited fn a six foot grave.

He believes the spread of the disease has been arrested. The disease is of a pus- ' tulus nature, and is known in Persia as the black or spotted plaugue. HOW TO AVOID CHOLERA. Simple Rules That Will Stand Off tne Plag-ne. A local physician has handed us the following rules laid down by the famous doctor and scientist, Pasteur of Paris, for the avoidance of cholera even in the time of a great plague from the disease, says the Pomona Progress. Cholera is contracted by taking the germs into the erjatem through the jauuth. aa lv food or dirlak— or from tJ»« hands, clothing, dishes, etc. Thorough cooking destroys the germs. If cholera should develop in this coun try, observe the following rules. Don't eat raw, uncooked articles of any kind, not even milk. Don't eat or drink to excess. Use plain, wholesome, digestible food, as in digestion and diarrhoea favor an attack of cholera. Don't drink unboiled water. Don't eat or drink articles unless tbey have been thoroughly and recently cooked or boiled, and the more recent and hotter tbey are tbe safer. Don't employ utensils in eating or drinking, unless they have been recently put in boiling water, the more recent tbe safer. Don't eat or handle food or drink with' unwashed hands or receive it from the unwashed bands of others. Personal cleanliness of the living and sleeping rooms and tbeir contents and thorough ventilation should be rigidly enforced. Foul water closets, sinks, cel lars, etc., should be avoided. Don't be frightened, but be cautious, and avoid excesses and unnecessary ex posures of every kind. . (I EEMAN CATHOLICS. A Big; Convention 'and Celebration at Dubuqne, lowa. Dubuque, lowa, Sept. 18.—The Cath olics turned out en masse today, the oc casion being the opening of the thirty seventh annual convention of the Ger man Roman Catholic Central Society of North America.

His sermon was devoted almost entirely to the objects of the German societies represented in tbe convention. In the afternoon a parade of Catholic societies and delegates took place.

Chicago, Sept. 18 —The Trades and Labor assembly today, by a vote of 119 to 40, declined the invitation of tbe world's fair directory to participate in the parade during tbe dedication exer cises next month, on the grounds that the workingmen cannot endorse the fair as long as the gates are closed on Sunday.

An Earnest Plea for Cleveland's Election. Republican Success Means Further Burdens on the People. Mr. Cleveland's Chivalrous Reply lo an Dcchlvalroua Communication- Mrs. Harrison's Condition Still Improving. By the Associated Press.] New York, Sept. 18.—Hon. Carl Schurz has written a letter addressed to the Cleveland and Stevenson clubs of King's county, and other citizens of Brooklyn, giving his views on the pres ent national political situation. Schurz was invited to express his opinion in an address, but ill health prevented. Schurz says, in part; "We are told that tariff is the chief iesue of the cam paign. I certainly do not underestimate the importance of any of its aspects, bnt regard it only as part of a far mors com pre hen c ive question, which is not merely economic but political in char acter, and concerns the general working, in fact, the moral vitality of our Demo cratic system of government. There al ways has been,-and always will be, money used In elections for perfectly proper purposes. But eums are now spent in presidential and state campaigns, which a genera tion ago would have been thought fabu lous. _ That much of this money is used for bribery, and that the evil is growing and spreading from year to year, cannot be denied." Referring to the party machines, he says: "The development of party or ganization of late years, is largely in the direction of machine methods. What will the effect be on political life? It seems to raise up a race of unprincipled, selfish, mercenary politicians, and to repel from public life men with patri otic ambition, who wish to serve the public welfare according to their honest convictions." Schurz enters into a legthy discussion of the tariff question, making the de duction that ' the Republican party is in a sort of a tacit partnership with the beneficiaries of the tariff. The moneyed power will do all it can in the way of furnishing campaign funds to keep tbe Republican party in possession ot the government. In turn, the Republicans will do all they can, by way of tariff legislation, to keep tbe moneyed power in tbe enjoyment of large financial profit. The Republicans tell us the j McKinley act is the final consummation oi the jMoi-ective and tb»« nottj. ing beyond it will ever be asked. The country never had a protective tariff before tbe enactment of which the people were not assured that the measure contained the limit of the demands that would be made, and after tbe enactment of which a clamor for more protection—higher duties—did not soon again begin. So it will be again if tbe Republicans are in trusted with full power. More will be asked for; more will be granted; for more subsidy will be needed to keep the party in power." Schurz devoted some space to the ex foliation of the Democratic party and Grover Cleveland. After referring to the shortcomings of Harrison's adminis tration, he says of free coinage: "I think that the movement will gradually die out, if Cleveland is elected to the presidency, for he will have more prestige and will use his influence vigorously in favor of sound finance. Under Cleveland's administra tion free coinage heresy will lose its foothold in tbe party in which it is numerically the strongest. Cleveland's defeat would restore the free coinage movement to new life and strength." Of the force bill he says: "The in evitable effect of tbe enactment of a' force bill would be the renewal of the fear of negro domination in the south, and with it violent and disastrous dis turbances in tbe relations of the two races. Schurz closed with advice to fellow citizens to support Cleveland's candi dacy. CHIVALRY BEFORE VOTES. Mr. Cleveland's Reply to a Very Unchlv alrous Letter. Memphis, Term., Sept. 18.—Frank P. Poston, brother of David Poston, the victim of Col. H. Clay King, addressed a letter recently to Grover Cleveland, strongly deprecating the letter he wrote King's niece, and saying the action would, in all probability, cost him votes in Tenneesee. In a reply of considerable length, after expressing surprise at tbe interpretation given the letter he sent Mrs. White, Cleveland says: "Have you and others who are inclined to crit icise my action, reflected upon the fact that my letter was written in response to tbe pitiable plea ot an apparently broken hearted woman ? Have you and my critics overlooked tbe fact that I ab solutely declined to interfere with the governor in behalf of King? Has it en tirely escaped your attention that the letter was written simply and solely by the sympathy which every true man ought to feel lor a woman in distress? In response to your suggestion that my act may result in the loss of Democratic votep, you will pardon me if I say when political expediency forces me to be dis courteous to distressed women, I am prepared to retire from polities." MRS. HARRISON'S CONDITION. She Is Able to Bit Up—Her Removal to Washington Is Probable. Loon Lakh Hoose, N. V., Sept. 18. — The president and members of his household were more encouraged than ever today over the favorable reports made by Dr. Gardner in regard to the condition of Mrs. Harrison. Dr. Gard ner says: "Mrs. Harrison iB improving very rapidly. Since the but oper ation there has been no production of miCE FIVE CENTS. fluid in the cavity pleura, and. go far at the etruhion is concerned, Mrs. Harrison mny be considered out of danger. 01 S' U j ße ' * CiDnot B ey positively that t fluid will not form again, but Ido not think it will. I ccc no necessity f r • another operation unless there is i v unlocked for accumulation of fluid," Mrs. Harrison is now able to sit up i bed, and she retjttd quietly nearly nil day. She is, nOW taking as much nou - i leument as She did before the appear ance of tbe lecent complication, and is gaining strength Bteadily. While the members of the family assert that .to plans have been made for the future it is learned on undisputed authority that arrangements have been made for the early removal of Mrs. Harrison to Washington, and the start will be made at? early as Thursday morning next, providing her present favorable condi tion continues. The details of the pro posed trip are purposely suppressed. AS TUB CROW FLIKS. An Air Line Railroad Projected Between San Fiauclsco and Mew York. Detroit. Mich., Sept. 18.—William Dillon, of Chicago, vice-president and general manager of the Atlantic & Pacific Construction company, in the city temporarily, gives an interesting ac count of an air line railroad to be builfc between New York and San Francisco, which will shorten the distance over 600 miles and be a proportionate saving in time In the interview he had the fol lowing to say on the subject : "Ever since October last I have been at work perfecting the plans of the com pany. Preliminary surveys have been I made and charters eecurrd in Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, in addition to work already done in Indigna. We are now engaged in surveying the route through New Jersey. The work of grad ing for tbe roadbed and laying the rails will commence in 1893, and the entire road will be completed aud in operation in the year 1901. The cost, of the divfs ion from New York to Chicago will be *100.( 00 000, and of the San Francisco end, $600 000,000. This includes every thing. We will be through in our work in the various states, and will secure a right of way extending 20 miles on each side of the road. When we conae to a river we will bridge it, and if we cannot go over a mountain we will bore through it, no matter how long it may be. Oar main line will run within a few miles of Chicago,' and within 14 miles of Cleveland. Instead of turning out to take in the cities, we will build spur tracks to connect tbem with the main line. The oities will come to us. We caculate that our road will pay fofe itself inside of six years. We will ldok for all the through and local business between New York and San Francisco, and we will get it with out a doubt when tbe road is completed. I fieure a dividend of 6 per cent a year, or $15,000,000 will be declared. We will establish a $2,000,000 plaut at Benton Harbor, Mich., and there we will build engines, freight and passenger cars, make rails, and in fact everything used in the connection aud operation of the 1 road." , I sra.*. road «tii De bt>«t with iingliefc capital, so Dillon declares.
