None of these newcomers bhowed any a]g?I of cholera when they were examined at Ellis Island and all of them were in a healthy condition, but as they come from parts of Europe where cholera has been menacing dur? ing the past sumnier, the state aothori tics think it best to follow the raove menta of the inimigrants and to keep them under the eye of health officers.
