AID FKOM THE NOKTII National Associated Press to the Star. THE NEW YORK CASE. New York, Sept. 2. The supposed case of yellow fever reported to the Health authorities on Saturday has aimed consid erahle excitement in this city. The victim is Mrs. James Celle, who arrived here with her husband a few days ago from Cincin nati, having fled from Memphis July 17th. Mrs. Celle was prematurely confined six days ago, and after the birth of the child she grew very feverish, while her sallow complexion became very yellow. Cello insists' that Ins wire is not suffering from yellow fever. He informed the doctors that ten years ago, when she was attacked with the disease, he successfully treated her by employing the cupping process. TWO THOUSAND DEATHS IN FIVE CITIES. New York, Sept. 2. Reports from New Orleans, Memphis and Vicksburg show that the yellow fever is spreading in those cities, and that the need for aid is becoming more pressing. Several small towns in Tennessee and Mississippi are said to be infected. In five of the principal cities and towns in the infected districts the total death list foots up nearly two thousand to dute. A HERO SLEEPS AT LAST. New York, Bept. 2. A Gren ada, Miss., special says yesterday was n beautiful Sabbath morning. At half past 8 o'clock brave and noble Wyatt M. Redding breathed liis last. At 10 "o'clock all that remained of him lay in the grave yard. Only two persons accompanied the hearse to the grave, the driver and a negro boy. As Dr. Peopler aplly remarked: "We bury the dead as we ship merchandise, and yet in times like these no one can be spared to follow the doad." Those who are alive have to be at lending the others. Wyatt M. Redding was aj native of Mar shall County, Miss., and twenty-three years old. His death soon followed the shaft which laid him low. He was taken sick Friday afternoon last and died on the morning of Sunday. His partner and suc cessor, young Hayburg, is resting as well as can be expected. The Western Union operator at this point, Mr. Tom Marshall, lies severely ill. He lost three children but has his good wife left and one child sick. Mrs. Dr. Hughes died yesterday morning. Her husband died Saturday. Dr. E. W. Hughes was the most prominent physician in Grenada, and in fact of all North Mis sissippi. His last words were to his at tendant physician, Dr. W. P. Beatty. of Mobile, Alabama: "Please have me buried like a gentleman and a physician." Dr. Beatty saw that it was done, laying him out and dressing his body with his own good old hands, and he followed the corpse to i s last resting place. This is not often done, because there is no one to do it and no time to spare, as already slated. The coiiln goes unattended to the grave, where it is re ceived by the grave-digger and his assist ants, who deposit it in its last resting place. A WARnlOII FROM KENTUCKY. Dr. Geo. W. Wolff, of Padticah, Ky., ar rived yesterday, attended by a negro" nurse to help us. As he had never seen a case of yellow fever we told him to leave the nurse, but for him to return at once. He said: ''No, he had come to be of what little use he could, and was going to stay." We brought him into town, and he is now In charge of the hospital, where he can ob serve betier than in any oilier way the dis ease and its treatment from the dawn to the night, lie comes with the full knowl Edition edge of his liability to attack, but he feels it to be his duty, and his wife said "Go, and if you never come back I will mourn for you as my heroic husband who served his God by serving his creatures." He is the Demo cratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor oi Kentucky, and lias no opponent. A SOLEMN SA1IBATH. Yesterday was a beautiful day so far as the weather was concerned, but scarcely any sign of life on the streets. No neatly dressed people wended their way to church, no bells announced the hour of worship ; all around was the stillness of night. The story that the child of Tom Marshall, the Western Union operator, had lain unburied iui inu ua,a 13 uuiic. ...v vui... v. yj person has lain three hours without burial. All that the community can do has been done, and all attention possible given to the dead and dying and sick, but it is truly pitiable to see the orphans and heart-broken widows. Money, clonics anu ioou are neeu ed for them. Four new cases anion? the whites and six among the blacks yesterday, and one col ored man died. Deaths vesterdav: Wvatt M. Redding, Mrs. Dr. Hughes, Rev.

An effort is being made to revive the interest in the Nica raugan Inter-Ocean Canal project The friends of the project are growing uneasy for fear England and France may secure control of the route, as it is well known that capitalists in the two countries named are ready to place the necessary funds to complete the work, and that the Govern ment of Nicarauga is growing restive under the long and unnecessary delay of the Gov ernment of the United States in finally de ciding what it intends to do. The strong est opposition in '.his country comes from the Panama Railroad Company. This Com pany succeeded in defeating the project during Grant's Administration, and it is asserted that their influence is still patent at the Department of State. An effort will be made at the next session of Congress to interest that body in the great work, and if that fails the matter will probubly be dropped, so far as this country is con cerned. The Indian Bureau. The question of transferring the Indian Bureau to the War Department has been under discussion some years, and has at tracted more serious attention since Decem ber last than previously. The plain fact re cently brought to notice that all our Indian wars are brought about by the unfair deal ing of Indian Agents and traders, togelher with efforts to move the Indians from res ervations where they can live comfortably to reservations where the instinct of the In dian teaches him he must starve or tight. The propositions to transfer the manage ment of Indian affairs to the War Depart ment is daily growing more popular throughout the country and among officials in Washington. The strongest opposition is made by parties who now have control of the vast political and financial patronage of the Indian Bureau. The good people who sustained the peace policy and hftv'e no per sonal knowledge of us operation have been led to believe in a bloodthirsty and exter minating spirit on the part of army officers, simply because they maintain that there is no oilier means of improving the condition of Indians than to use force. This is a great mistake, and it is only necessary to invcsli gate (he matter to find the fallacy of it. Wherever officers have had charge, it has been to the great satisfaction of the Indians, they greatly preferring army officers to the agents, who are seldom, if ever, selected on account of fitness for the positions. The agents are usually men who have no knowl edge of Indian character; have little or no control of the tribes under their charge, and are obliged to call to their aid men who have had experience. Officers of the army are generally the best friends the Indians have. They have occasions to protect them as often as they have occasions to fight them, and it is this double duty to which the army is constantly called that makes it necessary to give the army exclusive charge of the Indians. It is asserted that the nrcs- ence of troops isldciuoralizing to the Indian. ! The reverse is the case, as has been satisfac torily proven. There seems to be no doubt but (hat the Transfer Bill, passed by the j House last winter, will go through the Sen- , ate at its next session. Pergonal.
