NEWS FROM THE CHOLERACAMPS.
One Death from the Plagne at Sandy Hook. Bad Blood Between Dr. Jenkins and Dr. Hamilton. Hamburg Steamship Officers too Famil iar With Female Passengers—All Quiet at New York—The Plague Abated. By tho Associated Pross. OAMr Low, Sandy Hook, Sept. 20.— The medical summary of the camp shows one death from cholera, one case under treatment and one death from peritonitis. Dr. Hamilton sent Dr. Jenkins a mes sage last night, announcing the death from cholera, and requesting that a tug be sent imjnediately to remove the body to Swinburn island. The boat did not come nntil after 11 o'clock this morning, aud General Hamilton received no response to bis telegram. He is very indignant at what he terms Dr. Jen kins' discourtesy. The feeling is grow ing that a clash will sooner or later take place, not so much between the federal and stace authorities, as between Dr. Jenkins and ex-Surgeon-General Ham ilton. REPORTS FROM NEW YORK. New York, Sept, 20.—The woman at Sandy Hook, thought yesterday to have developed cholera symptoms, is better today, so it probably is not cholera. One suspected case in the city was removed to tbe hospital today. The'weather is very favorable, with a fresh breeze off shore and the temperature down to 64 degrees at noon. Dr. Jenkins has stated that he thinks it very injudicious for Dr. Hamilton to announce cholera in Camp Low, unless he bad absolute proof, which could only be obtained by a bacteriological exami nation. General Hamilton said this afternoon: "Dr. Jenkins and I had no irritation, and our meetings have always been pleasant; but the result here shows that the state authorities have not kept faith, in sending us infected passen gers." No new cases of sickness were report ed in the camp today. Two officers of the Hamburg line steamers are creating trouble by their familiarity with the female paesengers. General Hamilton reprimanded them and threatened punishment if their conduct was again complained of. The board of health potted the follow ing bulletin at 4 o'clock this afternoon : "No cases of cholera in the city since the last bulletin, except the suspected case of Cpe Joe Wah, 14 Mott street, who died today. His body has been removed to (be foot of East Sixteenth street for examination." Treasurer J. Pierrepont Morgan, of the chamber of commerce emergency fnnd, today received $4100 additional, swelling the total to $195,221. a scars at fire island.

Many Provinces of Kussia Still Sorely Afflicted. St. Petersburg, Sept. 20. —Eleven new cases of cholera are reported; deaths, 144; a decrease of one case and increase of 12 deaths. A correspondent explains the appar ent decrease in the number of eases of cholera and deaths in towns, and its rapid increase and virulence in the rural districts, as follows: "We are only just beginning to learn the real state of affairs in the vast isolated regions distant many miles from the principal towns. Generally the mor tality in these places amounts to about one-third the number of cases. Notable exceptions, however, are Voronezh, which has a record for 24 hours of 591 new cases and 279 deaths; Stavropol, 453 new cases and 243 deaths, and Erthvan, 166 new cases and 176 deaths.

A SEASIDE CONFLAGRATION. The Town of Rack*way Beach Almost Swept Out of Existence. Kockaway Beach, L. 1., Sept. 20.— The largest conflagration that ever oc curred on the Long Island coast des troyed over one hundred frame build ings here today, and left about 160 acres a mass of ruins. The main portion of this famous old summer resort is com pletely wiped out. Fire broke ont abont 12:25 this after noon in the Seaside museum. A high wind carried the flames across Seaside avenue. Within five minutes after the flames broke through the roof of the museum, fire was roaring on both sides of the avenue, and, fanned by the wind, began to eat* its way in all directions. In quick succession the flames attacked the hotels along the beach and on both sides of Seaside"avenue. In vain the few residents at tbe beach, aided by boatmen, battled with the LOS ANGELES HERALD : WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 21, 1892. flames. Aid was summoned, but its ar rival made little difference. About 6:30 p. m. the flames, having practically burned themselves out for want of im mediate material upon which to feed, were brought under control, but fire was still burning brightly at midnight in the center of the burned district. How the flames started is unknown. Mrs. Phillips, employed in the museum, is the only person known to have lost her life in the conflagration. A number of persons received burns and other injuries while fighting the flames. It is impossible tonight even approxi mately to estimate the amount of the losses. By some they are estimated at over $2,000,000, while others do not be lieve the total will amount to one-quar ter that amount. There ii a most un desirable crowd, consisting principally of ghouls, who are reaping a rich harvest from the misfortunes of the burned out people. It is said the insurance policies will not more than half cover the losses. MABER PUT TO SLEEP. BIUY SMITH WAS TOO MUCH FOR TUB AUSTRALIAN. It Was a Battle of Twenty-five Rounds, and the Boston Boy Had tue Best of It from Start to Finish. Portland, Ore., Sept. 20.—Billy Smith, of Boston, and Billy Maber, of Australia, fought before tbe Pastime Athletic club tonight for a purse of, $1000. Maber was knocked out in tbe twenty-fifth round. The contest was the most exciting that the Pastime club has yet given, and was witnessed by a large crowd. Jack Dempsey was referee and announced tbat the affair would be a twenty-round contest. Smith took the aggressive in the first round. He swung bis right on Maber's ribs bringing him to the floor. In the next few rounds Smith rushed Maber against the ropes and got in some good blows,' In the seventh round, Smith tried a pivot blow, but fell short. In the eighth round Maber was still on tbe defensive. From tbe ninth to the fourteenth round but little effective work was done. In the fourteenth round, Maber was knocked down by a right bander on the breast. He came up groggy and just as time waa called he was again knocked down. From tbe sixteenth to the twentieth round Smith continued his rushes and Maber began to show the effects of Smith's body blows. , At tbe close of the 20th round, referee Dempsey announced that the battle would be fought to a finish. The twen ty-first round found Smith apparently fresh, while Maber seemed weak. From the twenty-first to the twenty fifth it was apparent that Maber was whipped, but Smith's attempts to de liver a knockout were unavailing. Ma ber was bo weak that a light tap would send him to tbe floor. In the twenty-fifth round Maber went down four times in succession irom pivot blows on the cheßt. Smith then swung bis right, and landing on Maber's jaw, sent him down and out. They both weighed in under 140 pounds. Maber was slightly the favor ite in the pool selling. CHAMPIONS CHALLENGED.

Dublin, Bept. 20. —There is renewed excitement everywhere in Dublin in con sequence of the resumption of the evic tion of tenants who are in ar rears for rent. In county Clare the sheriff proceeded, yesterday, with a large force of police, to dispossess a delinquent tenant, but in stead of the resistance expected, the tenant was ready to pay his back rent. At the next house the sheriff found tbe same condition of affairs. The result of the raid was that the rents were paid, and none of the tenants evicted. The Freeman's Journal (Anti-Parnellite) de clares that the attempted evictions are the result of the landlords' desire to dis credit tbe home rule government. CHEEKY CHADWIOK. A Smooth Individual of Savory Memory Bobs Up iv Chicago. Chicago, Sept. 20.—James L. Wilcox, a real estate dealer, was arrested tonight on a warrant sworn out by J. 8. Chad wick, a Californian.

THREATENED BY A HOB. A Serious Labor Riot Impending la Syd ney, N. S. W. Sydney, N. S. W., Sept. 20.—A crowd numbering 6000 persons today sent a deputation to Sir G. R. Dibbs, prime minister and colonial secretary of New Bouth Wales, to demand the release of the labor agitators who were arrested in connection with the strike at tt c Broken Hill mine. The prime min ister refused to see the deputation until tomorrow morning. When tho crowd was informed of this, they were highly inceneed, and under the leader ship of the more turbulent members, they rushed to the house of parliament and tried to effect an entrance. They would have been successful had they not been repulsed by armed police. Most intenee excitement prevailed throughout the city, and the rioters are continually gaining fresh accessions to their body from the law less element. Many threats of violence were made, and it is thought highly probable that the mob will attempt to release the prisoners from the jail iv which they are confined. Orders have been issued to hold the military in read iness for any service they may be called upon to perform. Late this evening it looked as though an outbreak might be precipitated at any moment. THE VENEZUELAN WAR. Revolutionists in Possession of Ports- Foreign Consuls Imprisoned.

An optimist by nature 1 have always clung to th'! idea that tlio flings at sum v.cr hotel life have been in large meas urer an unkind and untruo attempt to be facetious on the part of the would he cynical. I give iv. Ido it with regret, but- after v, tour of some of the leading -, 'Uls at the "resorts" the resulting panorama is one part recreation to nine parts jealousy and all the evils that light under that flag. "Willy nilly," a feminine friend had told me, "a woman it a summer hotel must fall in at dress parade to escape being tho cynosure of fill sorts of critical and disapproving glances and comments. Once she does it she is lost 1 the real virtues of coun try or shore or mountain life. White kid shoes don't 'go' with tramps, nor corsets With mountain clambering, nor lino frocks wfth relaxation of any sort, while bsing thrown into contact, inti mate or distant, with all sorts of people is harassing, say what you will." I thought of it the other day when at one of the leading hotels I saw an other wise normal young woman bent over a piece of "fancy" work, in the face and eyes of a glorious beach, and got up in a rig that showed off a 19-inch waist measure and ended in white silk stock ings and white shoes of undressed kid. A few steps away a group of older women were playing whist and wonder ing who the new arrival was, and as 1 departed I overheard a woman of full forty, to bo polite, arrayed in virgin white from head to foot, showing up her sallow complexion under the glare of sunlight in great shape, asking the clerk, "Ain't my son gut back frurn bathin yet?" and saying to her compan ion: "My Lord, jew ever see such a dull place?

Gov't Report DriVal Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE A New Foe to a Test of the Orchard. Mr. Albert Koebele, who is in Aus tralia collecting beneficial insects, has sent to the stato board of horticulture of i California a new ladybird that preys on the cottony cushion scale. It was through the instrumentality of Mr. Koebele that the Vedalia cardinalis was introduced into California and accomplished a work which was without precedent in the an nals of economic entomology. This new ladybird is called Novius Kcebelei, and is slightly smaller than Vedalia, the mature beetle averaging about one-eighth of an inch in length. Only three specimens wero received, and these were placed in a small jar in fested with the scale. One of the in sects died, but two of them changed to the chrysalis state and in a few days perfect beetles emerged, which were fortunately male and female. Three days later the female deposited eggs, which hatched in five days. Tho young larvte wero carefully reared, and, after passing through three molts, changed into the pupa state, and fifty-five per fect beetles were secured in just thirty one days from the eggs. When liberated on trees they will no doubt pass through their transforma tion in much less time, so that there will be thousands of beetles for distribution very soon. It is to be hoped that they will be as efficient as the ladybirds of Mr. Koebele's original importation.— Garden and Forest. Five New Words. The following new words with their meanings have been coined by *he New York Herald: Typine—A typewriting machine. The accent falls upon the last syllable— type-een. Typer—A male operator on the typine. Typess—A female operator on the ty pine. To Type—To write on the typine. Typoscript—Typewritten, or typewrit ten manuscript. It may aid the memory to state that the first word, "typine," is formed by taking the first and last syllables of the expression, "typewriting machine," and that it mean 3 the same as the complete expression. Also that the last one, "typoscript," is formed by taking the first one and the last, two syllables of the expression, "typewritten manuscript," and changing, for the sake of euphony, the' 'v" of the second syllable into an "o." There is a vacancy in the English vo cabulary which these words fill. The typewriting industry has sprung up within a comparatively short time, but no words have come into general use to meet the requirements of the new situa tion. A general movement would quickly establish them. Electricity In France. Is electricity dutiable? Can it bo stolon? In France it was a moot point until a short time ago whether an electricity supply company was a societe civile or a societe commerciale, a matter of no little importance to investors, who in the latter case would only "be liable for the amount of their shares. A societe commerciale, it appears, is one which, has for its principal object "the accom plishment of acts of commerce," such as buying raw material aud reselling it at a profit, manufactured or in its nat ural state. The Edison company, of St. Etienne, summoned before the tribunal of com merco of that town by one of its cus tomers, declined to submit to the juris diction of the court on the ground that the supply of electricity from a central station did not constitute a commercial act; "the company only sold a product which it gathered from nature and which was a res nullius." The tribune of commerce nevertheless declared it self competent to try the case, and on appeal its decision was upheld, so that in France, at any rate, electricity when supplied from a central station must be deemed a manufactured article. —Elec- tricity. Progressive Tax on Bachelors. The bill for staying the depopulation of France, which M. Le Roy is preparing to lay before the chamber, is by no means a laughing matter, as the French bachelor of the future may discover. For among its provisions is a proposal to put a progressive tax upon bachelors, while, on the other hand, creating a eliding scale of taxation, to bo reduced in proportion to the number of children in a family. M. Le Roy proposes to follow English law in reducing the legal age at which man becomes his own master to twenty one, and in giving a woman the right of compelling the father of her child to recognize and provide for his offspring. It was none too soon that this last pro vision became French law as well as En&lisb Jaw.—PaU.MaU.Gaz.ette. Telegraphers Ordered Out. Cedar Rapidb, la., Sept. 21.—At la. circulars were sent out by order of the Railway Telegraphers, ordering the men on tbe Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern out at noon. Chief Ramsey's conference with Superintendent Wil liams was fruitless. Men were sent out on every train on the branches to notify the day agents, and all the men have been notified by wire. The Summer linibrella. The rise of the ami mnbrella is mani fest these insufferably hot days. Per-, haps it would ho more strictly accurate if it were designated the rise of the summer umbrella, for tho most practi-| cal article of that description is one equally adaptable to sun or rain. It has a light stick handle, and is in a shade of light blue or dark green—for this in a summer when it rains as unexpectedly as the sun shines fiercely. There is no adjunct of later day costume that is a greater boon than the summer um brella.—W. A. Clarke iv Clothier and Furnisher. Staiiley'ts Stepfather in Homestead.
