Italian Authorities Will Not Admit its Existence. REFUSE TO FORWARD DISPATCHES. The Government Bad Boped to Conceal the Epldemlo Entirely—Great Credit Dae Dr. Young, United State* Medical Inspector of Immigration, for Dis covering Us Existence. New York, Aug. 10.—Special cable depatches to the New York World say: The Italian authorities do not admit the existence of cholera. The United King dom of Italy, from the government at Rome to the small officials at [Naples, is engaged in a conspiracy to conceal the truth. It has only become known through an Italian physician who asso ciates with Americana. This is the cable despatch which the Italian authorities refused to (forward from Naples last Saturday: Naples, Aug. 6.—Deaths from cholera have averaged thirty daily (for more than a week past. It is impossible to learn the number of sick because they hide themselves. The number of patienta in the hoapital is not published, either. No Nawa About Cholera Transmitted. No news concerning cholera is trans mitted. Even a telegram mentioning it, sent by the egent of the North German Lldyd Company, was stopped, although he has every interest In minimising the facts. The great epidemic of 1884 broke ont la April and was ooncealed until August. The government had hoped to conceal the present epidemic entirely. This, like all other outbreaks, had a small beginning, bat the ominous fact ia that it increases steadily. If it maintains its present rate of progress it will be very serions by September. Bow the Plague Broke Out. Here is its history : A big feast occurred in the Carmine district on July 15. The guests had drawn a lucky number in the lottery and gorged themselves with bad fish and bad fruit. Oue man died Sunday night. Two days later the United States medical Inspector of immigration Young, heard of tbe result of • teriological examination, which showed plainly that this man died of cholera. At this season Naples is deserted by English and Americans, bnt swarms with Italian visitors, who come to bathe. The rumor of the truth got among them, and, to allay all fears, the authorities stated publicly that there was no cholera. On that very day, July 22, Prince de Torino died of the disease Within twenty fonr hours visitors had vanished almost entirety from Naples. It is now deserted by all who can live elsewhere. The great warship Re-Umberto Dame came in on the 18th with twenty-three cases and five deaths. She was sent away to the quarantine station in Sar dinia ostensibly to carry tbe Chief Sani tary Inspector of the kingdom, althongb the despatch boat could have performed that service equally welL Eight deaths have occurred in Tthe usually very healthy island of Capri. By some it ia attributed to a German woman who left Hamburg when the plagne was raging there last year and died of cholera at Capri. Twenty-three deaths In three da s have occurred at Postici, which adjoins i* spies. The , Dr. a bac cases occurring on the Karamanla were no doubt of rural origin, as tbe pas sengers bad not stopped in the city. Naples Papers Won't Give the New*. Italians attribute them to Greek emi grants. Naples papers publish tbe news of cholera o-i tbe ship without admitting Its existence here. But one of them, El Mattlne, asks: "Even if there is cholera, which there Is not, why talk about it and injnre Naples!" • The Karamania sailed two days before tbe sanitary authorities here knew of the existence of cholera, and conse quently before tbe United States medi cal officers knew It. Credit Is due Dr. Young for discover ing its existence as Eoon as he did, in spite of tbe determination to conceal it' The population of Italy this year bas shown a greater tendency than ever be fore to move to America by way of Naples. Forty thousand had gone by June. A thousand left since the out break of cholera in July. They were isolated for five days, bathed, vac cinated and disinfected The Masailia, Cachemire and Weser are now carrying these carefully pre pared emqy-auts to New York. The emigrants have been In amutlnous condition, at what they call outrageous conduct of the American Government in quarantining them in their own eoun try. The breeding places of cholera in N spies are wells in the Basso norto and elsewhere, in which refuse, food and sew age U thrown. Sereno water, snppï to Naples, ie excellent, but people h to pay for using more than a certain quantity,and have no hesitation in using bltby well water. Three persons died in a house facing the post office. One was a woman called La Bella Futarola, or tbe beautiful fruit seller, one of the popular beauties of Naples. The lower classes hide their eick under the beds, believing that chol era is the result of tbe upper classes trying to poison tbe lower, in order to reduce the popnlation. They even say that King Humbert is in the conspiracy, although he worked with bis own hands among them when they were dying at the rate of 1,500 a day. Bad food ie thrown awav as soon as discovered Infected bedding 1 j de stroyed, not disinfected. The police watch the houses all right, but the idle, dtrty Neapolitaus are doing their best to defeat the efforts to save them. Signs of fear are manifested every where. The last of those who can pos sibly get away are going. New Wharf at League Island. The dredge E. V. |Wbite, belonging Atlas Dredging Company, left this after noon for the League island Navy Yard. She will be engaged in filling in a wharf. lied ave YOU MAY EXPECT IT SOOH. • » The President's Proclamation Opening Cherokee Strip Will Be Issued About September 1 or 15—General Miles In structed to Get Beady.

He Says "The Assignee of a Backless Spendthrift Would Clearly Point Out to the People That Our Condition Is Logically the Uesult of Taxing the People More Thau Necessities Call For. Cincinnati, Aug. 10.— The practical condemnation of President* Cleveland's message on the silver question by the Committee an Resolutions, last night,and its endorsement of free silver at 10 to 1, has precipitated a light among the dele gates to the Democratic Convention that will be waged with perhaps even greater fierceness than the contest for the gub ernatorial nomination. The supporters of Baker, who is con sidered the administration candidate declare they will fight to the last the free coinage program. The Neal delegatee continue to perfect their fiue organize tion,almost Tammany-like in the make up and the Democratic machine of Hamilton county was again set working this morning to down Baker. When the first delegates began to ar rive the situation was not changed aud it was Neal against the field. The conven tion was set to meet at 0 o'clock, bat it was nearly 10 o'clock when the chair man's gavel fell. When Temporary Chairman Gilbert H. Barger, of Columbus, appeared, he was greeted with tbe usual triumphant yell that comes from enthusiastic Democratic lnngs In times like this. Mr. Baiger kept his hearers interested by a lengthy and eloquent speech. His references to President Cleveland were cheered again and again. "The money power of the country," he said, "has got rid of the surplus by spending It and increasing taxation. The Democracy was again in fall power and it would see that this extravagant policy would be reversed and honesty and economy introduced into public affairs. 'The p.ople could not be deceived by tbe Republican party in attempting to sbonlder upon [the Democracy tbe re sponsibility for present distresses. "Tbe assigaee of an improvident and reckless spend thrift would clearly point out to the people that onr cond tion ie logically the result of taxlDg the people more than government necessities call for and a contraction of the currency," Mr. Barger declared that the govern ment should not pnrehase bullion bat that the citizen might have hie bullion converted Into money at the weight established by law. The chairman attacked protection and defended the administration in its con duct of the pension bureau and closed by saying that with a full vote and fair count, Ohio is a Democratic state. The credentials committee pre sented its reports. The only eoutest of consequence was from Chilllcothe, where Colonel Neal's delegation had been attacked. The report favored seating the Neal men. A deafening shout weut up. Over three hundred delegatee came up; yelling load and long for Neal. This first great show of Neal strength dismayed his opponents. The tempor ary organization was made permanent. Cikcinnatti, Aug. Id— Later—The platform approves of the platform Adopted by the national convention at Chicago, especially those portions re ferring to tbe tariff and currency legislation. The country is congratulated upon the early prospect of relief as outlined by the President's message and expresses confidence that Congress will devise laws to furnish such relief. The platform continues: "The bnancial situation Is the unfortu nate legacy of Republican administra tion. It is the natural result of the McKinley tariff and the Sherman Silver laws, extravagance of the party lately in power and the creation and fostering of trusts and corrupt com binations by that party, all combining to Bhake credit, create distrust in the money of the country and paralyze its business. " It is recommended that National banks be permitted to issue their currency to an amouut equal to the par value of their United States bonds deposited with the Treasnry to the end that- the volume of currency may be immediately in creased. HARKINS LOOKING FOR TROUBLE. Filled With ''Five Cent Whiskey" He Went Down on tbe Coast and Got What Be Wanted From Charles Mosley. James Harkins hecame "barreled up" with "five cent" whiskey aud went down on the coast "hunting trouble" and he got it on the right jaw. On Water street near Orange he ap roached Amos Wilson, colored, liver for the Co Operative Coal Com He told Wilson for trouble. The latter told him that he was in the wrong place to get It and ordered him off the property of the company for which Wilson worked. Instead of doing so he struck at Wilson and missed him. then struck him and shoved him into Water street. And that was the end of their squabble. The next man Haikins met was heavy built colored man, Charles Moxley, who was drunx and was not of the same inclinations as Wilson. When Har kins told him that lie wanted trouble, Moxley gave him a Sullivan left hand swing on the right jaw. and Harkins and the railroad tracks esme Into sud den collision. Harkins had warrants sworn out for both of the colored men and they were arraigned in the Municipal Court this morning for assault and battery. Wilson pleaded not guilty. Moxley pleaded guilty and admitted that he was drink of and that when Harkins told him he was hunting trouble he gave It to him Wilson was dismissed and Mosely ordered to pay the eoets in the case. that he was i any.

Washington, Aug. 10.— The after noon caucuses yesterday were almost as unproductive of results as the morning sessions. Most of the time was consnmed in the expression of individual views, which clearly demonslnted that each element In the party was firmly wedded to its own notions. Senator, who occupies a high position in the Finance Committee, and whose leaning toward free silver is pronounced, de clared positively, "You can set it down as a certainty that the Sherman act will not be repealed unconditionally, the other hand, some Bsnators who have sided with the President, said rather despondently that while no tangible ad vance has been made toward a point where the party oonld be regarded as united, they bad not abandoned hope that the efforts in that direction might eventually result in success. Neither paity in the Senate has ever been able to caucus with complete sue cess on the subject of silver, aud to day's caucus was no exception to the rnle. So, after exhausting debate, the caucu One On the possibilities of s fell back upon the oft-tried expedient of delegating to a committee the task of endeavoring to arrange a plan of business that should be satisfactory to all sides. Mr. Gorman, the chairman of the caucus, was autho red to appoint this committee and the caucus Itself adjourned subject to his call, whleh will be issued as Boon as the committee has reached an agreement and is prepared to submit a report for action. After the adjournment of tho caucus Mr. Gorman repaired to the room of the Committee on Appiopriatlons, and called into consultation Senators Blackburn, Gray, Ransom and Voorbecs. Senator Cockrell was invited to remain in the room. All these Senators, with the ex ception of Senator Gray, were members of the Democratic Cancns Committee of the last session, aud although Mr. Gorman had not made his appointments at the time of tbe consultation, their piesence gave color to the expectation that they would be named as members of the Cancie Committee. At the conclusion of this informal caucus, at 5.15 p. m., Senator Gorman said he would not ap point the committee authorized by the caucus until to morrow. The Republican Caucus Committee, consisting of Senators Allison,McMillan, Jones, Higgins, Wolcott, Shonp,Proctor, Davis and Alrich, met this afternoon in Senator Sherman's conference room for the purpose of considering Republican vacancies on the committees, aud tbe patronage allowed them by the majority. The only vacancies on committees are those due to Senator Stanford's death; bat there a ill have to be are-arrange ment after the Senators whose seate are now contested are admitted. There were about dfleeu places in the Senate force held br Democrats under tbe Republican administration, and tbe Democrats have decided to be equally generous to the Republicans now. These places will probably be filled by men selected by tbe Senators who have been longest in service. Nothing definite was accomplish'd by the committee to day. ZIMMERMAN'S DEFEAT PLANNED. The New Yorliet'* Downfall Yesterday Was the Besult ofjal'lot Laid By HI* Chicago Competitors. Chicago, Ang. 10.—For the first time daring the L. A. W. meet, Zimmerman was beaten from the scratch yesterday. John S. Johnson, the Minneapolis wonder, assisted by Tattle and ,Knisely, accomplished his defeat in the five-mile national championship, by crossing the tape an open length ahead of the great Jersey man. Two Chicago riders set a fast pace for Zimmerman for fonr miles, and a bunch of wheels kept him sprint ing until his upper turn was reached tbe last time. Then Zimmerman palled away for his final spurt, with Johnson after him. The great distance and the manner in which the pacemakers forced him out, marred his final effort, and Johnson passed him with ease. The last quarter was ran in 28 2-5 seconds. This was far the best race of the meet ing and was a hot contest from Btart to finish. It looked like a plan of "anv thing to beat Zimmerman." Knlsely first set the pace, and tiriDg, Githens took bis place Then 1 uttle went to the front, and all bnt Johnson having taken >art in the killing off of the champion, Johnson, fresh from the rear, advanced and won. Previous to this Zimmerman had won three races—the quarter-mile national championship, in 312 5; the one-mile, ordinary, national championship, in 3 10, and the third-mile, scratch, in 44 2-5. He did not etart in the handicaps. The five mile race saved the day from being dull, tbe only other brilliant feature be ing the work of A. T. Crooks, of Buffalo, in tbe one and two mile handicaps, both of which he won. a a was VETERANS TO GO WEST. Grand Army Men Will Represent Dela ware at the National Encampment.
