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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.

stricken with cholera this morning, and
thia evening is very low. The case is

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

Simple Rules That Will Stand Off tne
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. .

Carl Schurz Writes an Open
An Earnest Plea for Cleveland's
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
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
Schurz closed with advice to fellow
citizens to support Cleveland's candi
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."
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
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

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." ,
