HonoluluHas It and San Francisco^Is Afraid of It.
TheCalifornia Authorities Propose^to Use Diligence When Ves^^sels Arrive From the In^^fected Port.
SanFrancisco, Sept. IT^Dr. Ru^^pert Blue of the United States marine^serlvce of this city received two let^^ters this morning from his brother,^Victor Blue. Who Is an ensiirn on^board the United 8tates ship Benning^^ton, now stationed at Honolulu. In one^letter, bearing^ the date of Aug. 23, En^^sign Blue states that cholera broke out^In the Island two weeks previously,^and that It wan considerably on the^Increase. The death rate dally was^six, and ot all who contracted the^dreaded disease only one escaped with^his life. On Sept. 3, two days before^the sailing of the Mariposa, Knslgn^Blue wrote again. He stated that six^men were down with the disease on^board the Bennington, and that one^sailor had died. The other men were^doing ^well, but the ship's surgeon^feared that the epidemic had scarcely^begun. He had made a careful micro^^scopical examination of the execreta of^the sick patient and pronounced It to^be a virulent type of Asiatic cholera.
Weall feel very blue at the pros^^pect,^ writes the ensign. 'The excite^^ment here is Intense and It Is not to be^wondered at, for the disease Is spread^^ing with alarming rapidity. The Ben^^nington has left her anchorage off^Honolulu and gone southward 100^miles. We wil return once a week after^mall and orders. In one day 35 cases^were reported at Honolulu, and nearly^every one resulted fatally. I hope to^be able to give you better news when^next I write, but I fear that I will not^be so fortunate.
Dr.Blue states that the United^States authorities will assist the state^and local officers in preventing an In^^crease of the disease Into this coun^^try. He thought this would be accom^^plished by exercising due diligence.^There Is general Indignation at the ac^^tion of the quarantine authorities in^permitting the steamer Australia to^come alongside the city dock half an^hour after her arrival from the Infect^^ed port. Knowing the report that the^vessel was In quarantine five days be^^fore she left Honolulu, the public does^not believe that the quarantine officers^had any right to order the shtp to land^her passengers. It Is claimed that the^proper precautions were not taken, al^^though medical authorities hold that^the life of cholera germ Is only five^days. The state harbor officials do not^like tho idea of having the Australia^alongside the city wharf, but they are^in no way responsible for the acts^of the quarantine doctors.
Theboard of health held ^ special^meeting at tho mayor's office this morn^^ing to consider the cholera epidemic^now raging In the Hawaiian islands.^Mayor Sutro presided, and the full^board and tho quarantlno officers were^present. The subject of ithe dreaded^disease being Introduced Into California^was thoroughly gone Into and vigor^^ous methods to keep it out were ad^^vocated. Honolulu was declared an^Infected port, and all vessels coming^from ithat or any other port In the Ha^^waiian islands will be quarantined until^the passengers, orew and baggage- have^been fumigated. The stalte board of^.health Is to bo communicated with and^its members summoned for a, confer^^ence In the mayor's office next Tues^^day. At Uhat meeting steps will toe ta^^ken to guard all the ports in California^and the rules In San Diego, San Pedro^and other ports will be strictly enforc^^ed, as 'hey will be In San Francisco.^The Rio de Janiero is expected to ar^^rive from Honolulu next Sunday, and^the quarantine officer was instructed^to pay especial attention to her. She^will be quarantined until a thorough^examination is made and all the pas^^sengers, more particularly all the Chi^^nese, will be fumigated before being^allowed to land.
Advicesfrom Honolulu under date^of Sept. 5 say: There was a good deal^of uneasiness when 'the sailor on the^Bennington became affected, and that^case alone caused many people to be^^lieve that the disease would spread to^the white population, and many fam^^ilies hurriedly packed their belongings^and fled to the resorts along the beach^a few miles from the town, likewise^a large number going to the outside^districts. So many took advantage of^this that the board of health Issued an^order forbidding amy connection with^the outer districts, no one being allow^^ed to leave town without a pass from^^the Honolulu authorities. All the hous^^es along the N'uuanu stream have been^condemned and burned and the stream^thoroughly disinfeeited, as well as the^harbor. The Bennington was thor^^oughly disinfected and the ship put to^sea the day after the sailor dted . The^vessel Is n ^w anchored outside the har^^bor, where she has been for several^days, t -r Ifcaf with the olympia, which^arrived early Monday morning, and^several of the Inter-Island fleet. Thaft^has been no connection with 'the other^islands since the first outbreak, the^peoplo there refusing In some In^^stances t ^ receive the mall.
ThereIs Mff a seri ^us question con^^fronting the people there. Meats and^provisions are very scarce, and at one^place flour Is selling at $11 per barrel.^It was decided to place several of the^local steamers In service, and the Hall^wa^ .!;.; ^^ .- I r . ports on Maul with^pDvlsions and mails and tourists that^arrived by the Australia were trans-^fern d fr-un the Australia to the Hall,^no connection having b-en made with^the shore. The Australia arrived Mon^^day afternoon on regular schedule^time. She was met outside by agents
ofthe vessel and Informed of the situ^^ation. Captain Houndlette concluded^to come In. and the steamer docked^before evening. All the passengers for^Honolulu landed, but the tourists staid^aboard and were transferred to the^Hall on Wednesday, they going to the^Island of Hawaii and the volcano. The^Olympia Is anchored In the stream.^Captain Reed refusing to have any^connectlon with the Bennington or^shore. During the past three days^there have ben numbers of Instances^wherein the natives have hid the sick^people and only made a report when^they have died. Many curious and^false notions prevail among that class.^They believe the government has Intro^^duced the disease to kill off the royal^^ists and by the aid of several unscru^^pulous leaders they failed to report^cases of sickness. The mortality^among those attacked has been great,^byond question, but It cannot be avoid^^ed as long as the natives persist In^their present course. No one Is al^^lowed to bathe In the harbor and last^Sunday no services were allowed held^In the different churches. Schools re^^main closed and no public gatherings^of any kind are allowed.

Waterloo,Iowa, Sept. 13 ^ Rev. Q. E.^Scott, pastor of the First 1 Methodist^church In this city, preached a sensa^^tional sermon last night against the^wearing of bloomera He took as his^text that part of the law of Moses^which declares that the woman who^weareth that which j^ertalneth to a^man Is an Abomination of the Lord.^This law, he thought, was given then^because God could look down upon^the centuries and see the woman of^to-day dressed In men's clothes, with^trousers, scant of cloth and tied with^a string, bowling along on a wheel, an^abomination to God and to the Infinite^disgust of man. The evils of bloomers^he said, was that they tended to break^down the outward distinction between^woman and man. They caused women^to lose their modesty and compelled^men to lose their respect for women.^He thought the women who persisted^In aping masculinity In this way were^either old maids who did nit hope to^marry or married women who act as^though their husbands realized they^had made a mistake on their wedding^day.
She^In and Looks at the Prlsoner-The^Detectives Are Watching Her.
SanFrancisco, Sept 13.^ The prosecu^^tion In the trial of Theodore Durrant^has thus far examined 23 witnesses^and has occupied two weeks in th^^work. These are less than half the^number to be examined 1n Its dl;^^^^ t^caso and the most Important are yet^to be placed on the stand. It Is sai l^that the next four witnesses will tal;I^Durrant and his alleged victim up to^and Into the church where the girl^met her death. Their examination will^probably take all of next week. Ever^since the oase in 'the superior court be^^gan a girl of prepossessing appearance^has haunted the court room. For ^^time she brought every morning a^bunch of flowers which she sent to^the prisoner by a deputy sheriff. This^action attracted so much attention,^however, that she discontinued it.^During the proceedings She sits with^her eyes rivlted on Durrant's face.^The prisoner never giv-s her any at^^tention, but the poll.-.- believe that^they are at least acquaintance^. Yes^^terday Durrant is said to have written^a long note in court, the missive belnj;^delivered to the unknown by the pris^^oner's father after court adjourned.^The young woman live* in Oakland,^but although detectives ha/e been de-^balled to locate her, she always man^^ages to elude them. She Is perfe -Jy^aware that she Is being vva-- ned and^seems determined to evade identifica^^tion.

MenTumbled Otrr One Anoth-r In Wall^Street Yesterday.
NewYork, Sept. 13.^This day was an
excitingone, and for a time bid fair to^be a critical one In the financial world,^so that many feart-d that It mli^h' pass^Into history as a small edition of the^'^Hla-'k Kr'.day^ of years ago. Hut to^^night the disturbing elements are better^under e.1 and i he .. i ^ leek for t ho : r. i s-^ury and the maintenance nf tho gold re^^serve are comparatively clear. 1'ncor-^tainty as to the Intention of the govern^^ment bond syndicate to maintain tho re^^serve at the century mark and as to Its^ability to do so had disturbed tho mon^^eyed Interests Increasingly throughout^th^ week.
Acrisis was reached this morning^when the announcement was mado that^the linn of Lazarl Freros, which Is a^member of the bund syndicate, had en^^gaged PJJHtM of the g.il I for shipment.^This announcement naturally gave rise^to the Impression that the syndicate had^withdrawn from Its controlling position^behind the throne and It sent quotations^tumbling In Wall strocet. Before the af^^ternoon had passed, however, the city^banks ha t come li the aid of the sub-^treasury with deposits of gold, made In^exchange for greenbacks. Explanation's^ha l been ma b- by the members uf the^syndicate that the firm wh.ch started the^panic, and quiet has been restored when^th e moneyed institutions closed their^doors for the day. The gold deposits^made by the banks will offset the ship^^ments to-morrow. The Hanover NaUonal^bank so' ixampl- w:'h a deposit of^$^^^,^^^ and the American Kx- hanga Na^^tional bank also paid into the treasury^$30n.(s^, and the National Bank of Com^^merce followed suit with another $20i.ouu.^Tho National City bank is credited with^an Intention of depositing $500,000 or dou^^ble that amount. It Is said in hanking^circles that the deposits of gold by the^banks for greenbacks will reach $^.^0t^.-^is^i this w^-.-k. The known shipments to^Europe to-morrow will make the total^amount for the week l7.M0.iss^, lie largest^weekly output on record except $7,700,009^in ..n^- week last January.
Thefollowing statement was author-^:ie I bf th.- bond syndicate to-night: 'The^impression has lie.-n general that the^mi-nilMTs of the has*! syndicate entered^Into an agreement with the I ni'-d^States treasury to maintain the $1^J.issi.-^(*^) reserve until Oct. 1. pros., and that^upon that date said obligation will^cease. Such is not the case. Th- bond^syndicate fulfilled all its obligations to^the government In June last and his not^since been bound In any way to the trea^^sury. It Is true It has from time to time^sjaase last June pa! I over various sums In^gold coin to the treasury, which have^sufficed to maintain the reserve, but it^has done so voluntarily and will aafSjMM^to do so In the same spirit and for the^same motive.'*

He. said^thiut 48 bushels to the acre might be^considered a gOOtl thing in Idaho, but^that 100 buishels to'the acre was a com^^mon thing In Montana.
MarcusDaly was n.-xt called on and 1^spoke in highest tortus of the marvel- j^ous resources ^f M mtana, which he^considered equal to those of Pennsyl^^vania in every n-epeot, and ahead sjf^Pennsylvania In many respeots.
