The most sensational Incident of the j*1 day was the announcement from Dr. ? Joseph Holt, ex-president of the board Si of health, that *he had discovered nine be cases among his practice, the flrst of ^ which had come under his observation on Friday. Dr. Holt wrote a letter to President Olllphant and entrusted It to the C| mall and his letter reached the board of health ofTlce this morning. But fearing that tlie letter might not reach Its destination In time Dr. Holt sent a special te messenger to the residence of Dr. 0111- ut phant. of the board, at 12 o'clock last night, giving hlH Information. The pub- ol lie, however, did not hear of the Holt case until shortly before noon to-day. til At the board of health office when the m Holt letter was opened, there was flrsr Incredulity and then criticism of Dr. P* Holt, because he had adopted what tha hoard considered an Irregular way In 10 which t?> make known his cases. Immediately upon receipt of the letter, the machinery of the board was placed a' In motion, and Inspectors were sent to Pl the various houses where Dr. Holt re- ',fl ported slrknesB to exist. The plac- s were all disinfected and guards placed In front t0 of them, but the board said It had very little hope of the effectiveness of these measures, since all those who desired, 1,1 were given an opportunity to escape 6* from the Infected houses. I Innan (itrlrbftl. * ^ One of the houses where four of the }J patient^ are, is a fashionable boarding hi luuse. Tho llrst cose to develop In this at house was at 2:30 o'clock Saturday morn- *[) Ing and the other onsen In the name place :/ were noted on Saturday afternoon. Those living In the house, of whom there were quite a number, know of the existence of , the fever early Saturday morning and . therefore got out as faat an possible. Porno of th?-m moved their baggage on Saturday and others on Sunday*. while It Is raid some of the boarders to6k u train J, 'and went to Atlanta. Shortly after the board of health was made acquainted with the contents of the letter of Dr. Holt . 1t hold nn executive meeting and decided , to Immediately order Its l?oard of experts . to visit the nine cases of Dr. Holt and do- ' 1 clde whether or not they wore suffering i? with yellow fever. Tho oxports attempt- i' Ml to carry out the Instructions of the board this afternoon, but when they pro- ' reeded to tho first house Dr. Holt entered nn objection and refused them permls- J Hon to examine any of his patients, tak- J' Ing the position that he had properly diagnosed them, and thnt being an expert himself, there was no occasion for further Investigation. May ProMcntf Dirtnr Unit. After the experts made their report, th the board of health went Into executive session and discussed at length what }1( was termed Dr. Holt's violation of a city or ordinance, which he had himself had ?M passed and which provides for the pun- rli ishment, by flno or Imprisonment of any of physician who might fall to report a on pcsltlve or susplolous case of yellow th fever In a period like the presont. The er question of the immediatt prosecution sv of Dr. Holt came up and was considered, bo but tho )>oard finally decided to summon e<1 J>r. Holt to appear before them and explain to-morrow his alleged negligence pc In the premises. Tho result of tho meeting to-morrow will decide Whether or not there shall be ii prosecution of !>r.

Al- t | though no information respecting the r nature of Mr. Woodford's report can be 1 obtained at the state department, it is J believed that his representations were rather preliminary In nature, and in- I tended to prepare the rounaauoa upon * which the minister Is to base bis full case, and that these were well received. I PARIS, Sept. 20.?A dispatch from San Sebastian to the Temp* of this city, 1 says that in his Interview yesterday.the Duke of Tetuan, the Spanish minister for foreign affairs, the United States I Minister to Spain General Stewart L. Woodford, did not present any claim for indemnity, but confined the Interview fl to a moderate phase In the statement of the great Injuries commerce and lnI dustry had suffered In the United .States through the prolongation of the Cuban war. q General Woodford Is said to have added that Secretary Sherman had deslr<*d him to declare to the Spanish government that it was evidently impossible for Spain to end the rebellion in a rea- 1 sonable time and further, that if the c | war was continued Cuba would be do- . vastated and of no utility to Spain or to the Cubans. t In conclusion, the United States mln- t Ister Is reported to have Insisted cour- a teously but firmly, upon the necessity of . terminating the war, declaring that if It was not terminated by the end of Oc- ! tober the'ITnlted States would feel Jus- 1 tlfled In taking measures to secure the Independence of Cuba. The Duke of Tetuan,'still according to ; aispnicn 10 nit* irnjp*. wniie protesting ifltalt alleged American "pretensions." said he would reply officially to the United States minister when the Spanish court returns to Madrid. MADRID, Sept. 20 ?In official circles here the groatest secrecy Is maintained regarding the United States ultimatum, s which Is looked upon as bound to cause a frreat sensation In Rurope, and to have the greatest consequence for Spain. While not Intending It, It is believed the action of the United fttntes / hns greatly facilitated a solution of the ministerial crisis, and that there will be a reorganization of the conservatives under General Azcarrago, the premier, nnd Don Francisco Sllvella, the leader 1 of the dissident conservatives.

Nearly B,000 rikers have returned or will return tolorrow and a little lens than that num. ar are still out, with Indications in faDr of their Joining the workers. The only Incidents of the day were null outbreaks at Lattlmer and Bcky, both of which were quickly subued, and the serving of warrants of arst upon Sheriff Martin and a number t his men. At Lattlmer a band of omen attempted to drlvo out the 100 allans who returned to work. They ere armed with clubs and stones and toved on the engine houae and the imcany stores.

A number of Butler valley miners'who anted to return to work at Lattlmer, ere driven back by a body of armed Irlkers who met them nn they come ;*er the mountain a mile or more from imp. The dliturbanrc at Eckley was an ttempt by strikers to Intlmldato the len who wanted to work, and, It too, as quieted down by the troops without lolence. The break of the strike Is radically a victory for the operators, s In only one or two Instances have the pmands of the men been granted, allough several companies have promli1 to consider the grievances. The warrants for the arrest of Sheriff lartln and his deputies were laeued tony by Judges Lynch and Bennett, at lrllk03barre. They were served here toight and no resistance was mude.

A company of tlie rinth regiment will eeoort them to Vilkesbsrre. General Gobtn permitted tie service of the writ because he thinks tie civil authorities ore now able to taanle the situation. The gradual vrlthr.-iwnl of the troops will be considered j-murrow. FEDERATION OF LABOR [eetlng of Executive Connotl ?.IIItiers' Strike In \Ve*t Virginia Considered* Posallillltlrs of an Agreement.
