Sandy Hook.
Bad Blood Between Dr. Jenkins and
Dr. Hamilton.

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.

hours of 591 new cases and 279 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

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.
Mitchell and Baxter Want t» Fight Cor
bett and Dixon.
New York, Sept. 20.—A local sport
ing journal received a cablegram from
London today, stating that Bill Baxter
has issued a challenge to fight George
Dixon, the colored feather weight
champion, for $2500 or $5000 a
side and the largest purse offered for
the featherweight championship. The
message also says, Charley Mitchell has
deposited a forfeit of £500 and renewed
his challenge to fight Jim Corbett, the
champion of the world, for $10,000 a
side and a purse of £4000 in the Olympic
club, in February. Mitchell says Cor
bett must fight in six months or forfeit
the championship.

THE' LANDLORDS' BLUFF.
Excitement in Dublin Over the Resump
tion of Evictions.
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. The latter owns
real estate on Chicago heights.
He says he has placed in the
hands of Wilcox bonds, deeds,
etc., to tbe amount of $30,000, and Wil
cox refuses to deliver them. Chadwick
also asserts tbat Wilcox borrowed money
from him, giving a mortgage on Chicago
Heights property. Wilcox, when seen,
said many hard things about Chadwick,
and said his arrest is a bluff.
A French Victory in Dahomey.
Paris, Sept. 20.—An official dispatch
from Colonel Dodds, in command of tbe
French forces in Dahomey, reports that
while marching on Oboa, the French
column was attacked at Dogba by 4000
Dahomeyans. After four hours' desper
ate fighting, the enemy retired, leaving
one-third their force dead on the field.
The French losses were four killed and
15 wounded.
The Gun Did Not Explode.
NeW York, Bept. 20.—A Herald dis
patch says the report that a gun ex
ploded on board the Philadelphia during
the sham battle at Baltimore, last Sat
urday, is incorrect. A thirty-three
pound charge of powder exploded in tbe
chamber before the breech was closed.
Lieutenant Sallerman and three gun
bands were painfully but not fatally in
jured.

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.

cept Laguayra. In Carupano, the
American and Italian consuls have
been imprisoned, and the Spanish
consul imprisoned at Laguayra. The
commander of a Spanish warship threat
ened to bombard Laguayra on this
account. The fighting at Puerto Cabello
was bo severe and the dead so numerous
that there were no facilities for the
burial of the bodies, which were there
fore gathered in heaps and burned.
Union Pacific Notes.
Boston, Sept. 20. —Union Pacific rail
road officials say the Btory of the pro
posed extension of collateral notes ia
groundless. The original and present
intention is to take the notes up with
the proceeds of the collateral. Some
notes were recently redeemed, and more
are likely to be soon.
A Burned Steamer.
Coteau dv Lac, Sept. 20.—The steamer

hood of Locomotive Firemen this after
noon elected officers. Grand Master
Sargent and several old officers were re
elected. F. W. Arnold, of Chicago, was

' Faulta In —iu~*jj I.lie.
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

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

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.—

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

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
