Wb can.discuss this question reasonably and rlghtiy csttaiatS lt:s taportAnce only by recurrence t» tha past, history ot "cholera in Europe audio the tThifced State*. Rlb an historical fact tbat this country has never suffered from cholera, or had to defend, itself agoJnsfc ati invasion ot this pioguo, except during years when it has prevailed innome qpoirtoT of Europe. It is also indisputable that no epidemic of chol era has over entirely vanished from Europe in less than four to twelve years after hav ing gained- a foothold there. It ia likewise un4&uu*b)e that whenever in the past chol era has prevatlsd tor two or moro years throughout Russia and central and north ern Ettrope—especially Arotmd thesouthern shores of the Baltic, tne North sea and the English channel— North America.has never escaped a visitation which has been more or less disastrous. Our experience in the past should teach ns to be even moro apprehensive this year tjiau we were during the last autumn, for heretofore- it has ahvaya been the second or third year of prevalence of cholera in Eu rope that has Brought with it the greatest danger to this country. Indeed only twice has cholera ever reached even our quaran tine stations during tho first year of the epidemic in Europo*-namely, in 1865' and The present persistence of cholera in Eu rope, hi spite of cold weather there, is only a repetition of past experience, und that past experience constrains all well informed sanitarians to feel that there is no satisfac tory reason why we may not look for a great outbreak ot the ejademic in runny rwrts of that continent with the first ad vent of tho warm season. It is true that v/G now know much more Mian was known at tho time of the previous ■Msltfttion of Europe by cholera during 1684 to 1887 of the most efilclaut means of com bating the Spread of this difieaso, apd wo also know that tiany Europenn health authorities are. making fumitory improve ments and organizing for ihe coming strug gle. It might therefore bo inferred that with this more exact knowledge and this early preparation the European govern ments may be able to much moro surely prevent and control the spread ot the looal epidemics which aro pretty certuiu to de velop next spring nnd summer. But, the recttot experiieneo of Ilnmburg— which has jent gone through the most ter rible epidemic c. cholera that has ever rav aged that city—and tho present persistence of cholera in Holland, Belgium, France, Austria and Kttßflia ehould warn as how de lusive that inference may prove and at tha same time incite us to provide promptly and unstintedly for a wiso and vigorous course of defensive action. The necessity for prompt and effective precautions against cholera this year I re gard as exceptionally great. Enormous losses to business and trade would inevitably follow the spread of chol era in this country in any ordinary year. But the introduction and dissemination ot this dreaded plague thl'oughout the United States this year would certainly accomplish the absolute ruination oi tho Chicago fair, and the annihilation of many hopes and in terests for our country's good that are cen tered in that great exposition. We would do well to recognize now tho tact, rather than see it too late, that the ex istence of a mere handful of cholera coses in the oity of Chicago during any period of the fair would not only cause a stampede of visitors already on tbo spot, but would effectually deter hundreds of thousands of our own citizens from braving the danger of a visit, however small or imaginary that danger might be. One great) benetit to American exhibitors at Chicago is to be derived from au ocular demonstration to the people of the South American continent of the transcendent greatness and incalculable richness of ot country in bralus, energy, ingenuity am, exhaustlcss resources. If any ono doubu that every port on the South American continent will lie cloned against the United States the instant that cholera raises its hertd in any of our cities, ho has certainly forgotton the cxperionco of last autumn and has no proper conception of tho pan icky and unreasoning fear which the very name of cholera excites among the nations south of us. With the appearance of cholera iv a few of our cities this yenr the much calculated upon influence o£,this exposition.ia broad ening and further developing our commer cial relations and in knitting and welding together tho bonds of political comity and friendliness of the nations ot the western hemisphere will utterly vanish. With hundreds of thousands of our own citizens hesitating to vir.it Chicago, :tnd the South Americans positively fearing to come because v few cases ot cholera may bave oc curred, can any ono fail to see that our great fair would become a great fiasco! 1 If the directors of tho feu* know so little of cholera as to laugh at tho serioua danger to the vast public interests whioh have been intrusted to them, aud unite their in fluence with tint of the Atlantic steamship companies and trunk line railroads interest ed in the profits of the ocean traffic and In land transportation of the steorago classes in opposing absolute and rigid prohibition during the year of the Chicago fair of ad mission into the Unified States of all Euro peans of the class who in ordinary tunes cross the ocean in the steerage and travel by rail on "immigrant trains,'' then tho wise and unbiased frieorls of the Colum bian fair should moKe their voices so krud ly heard in Wa*biog*on that, our national legislators cannot mistake the will of the people. It is to be presumed that the directors of the fair heard before the people did tho re cent threats of the Hamburg-American. North German Lloyd and other Atlautlo foreign steamship companies that if immi gration were prohibited during this year they would raise the saloon passage rates. If these threats bo really anything mors than a grand bluff, and they actually dare to carry them out, then what of itf Even the most sangulns friend of the fair conk! not expect that aa many Europeans would •pine here to vieit Chicago as annually go fo Europe as American tourists—namely, some 60,000. Buppose for an instant (and I only do sc for tho sake of the argument) raising the ocean rates would stop (10,000 Europeans from visiting the fair at tho same time that immigration were stopped and cholera thereby excluded. Our own citizens apd thoso of Canada, Mexico, Cuba and South America would be undeterred from swarm tug in Chicago. in such a ease cau any ono rightly deny that tho chief and almost the only loser - would bo the stockholders of these steam- Ship oompauie.i which raised the rates of saloon passag-s? But it is reasonable to be lieve that fewer Europeans who intend to visit our fair wc-aiti be deterred by a ri&o hi thu-cost ti oor.uu-travol than would-.deter mine t , r. m i-> of borne rather than ex pcrlcnce suou and de tentions as would certainly be unavoidable were thß grim rxsrtilcneo to accompany steorago passengers as closo traveling com panions. However we look nt the proposition to protect tho-country from an Invasion of cholera by occlusion for ono year of all Eu ropeans.of 'the "staerago classes," wo are confronted by a shield ot two opposite sides. Upon the One side is displayed most prominently the indlfrcatlon ot A few steam ship owners, mostly foreigners, who fear tho loss of tens of thousand* of dollars. Upon the other side is depicted in bold out lino tho urrrnistafcttblo dem*pd9 of tho American people, who tear thft sternal and prospective lass-of hundreds of millions of dollars. Should wo h-asltato upon which-side to stand? Having studied the history and the na ture of cholera with ample opportunity to learn sometjhiuj of Its destructive power, and much also of tho most Certain means of escaping it, I may bo accorded tho rifht to speak upon the question with some au thority. There is at present groat lack of facilities at quarantine stations along our Atlantic coast requieito for maintaining successfully a long defense against the danger of intro duction of cholera with on uninterrupted stream of European steorago classes. Such quarantine facilities as are needed for the Bate handling of great numbers of these classes constantly arriving cannot bo pro vided, either by the local authorities or by tho national government, in time to safely guard against a danger which may become very great as early as next April. I am in accord with nearly all American sanitarians in holding tho opinion that if cholera become widely prevalent in Europe dining tho coming warm season it will prove to be impossible for this country to escapo the epidemio unless "tho steerage classes" from Europe bo rigidly excluded. To proclaim and inflexibly adhere to and enforce tbat policy during thia year would not only certainly protect the interests ot tho public health and prove to be the best guarantee of tho success of the Chicago fair, but also would secure maritime trade and ocean travel against such injury, loss and discomfort as were experienced lout autumn. To substitute instead of this policy of ex clusion for a limited period (which is rea sonably cert am of secuulng tho groat end in view) a project of quasi quarantine nnd in spection oa tho European side of 1 bo Atlan tic (which i» ot this timo exceedingly dan gerous because nn entirely new and unt experiment) would seem exceedingly un wise to one who fully appreeiatcstho critic al situation in which continued immigra tion during this year may place tho Colum bian fair, tho public health und tbe eco nomic and industrial prosperity of the na tion. . I would nrgo most emphatically that this is not tho yg ar in which to inaugurate such a doubtful experiment solely for tho pur pose of quieting the clamor of transporta tion companies engaged in the steerage traffic. If such an expedient oonld pos sibly bo successful, it would only be so with tho r.nintcmrpted stiffrauce by foreign gov ernments of a plain encroaofaxuent upon their sovereign and exclusive juriediction, with tho constant competent aud abso lutely reliable medical inspection by un bcndable officers of the United States ma rine hospital service stationed abroad, and with the honest co-operation of all tho officers of tho steerage transportation com panies. I have co hesitation iv declaring that my knowledge and personal experience!, ac quired while performing tho duties of United States cholera commissioner and of port physician at Philadelphia, convince me that the last requisite is absolutely un attainable. Without it tho scheme is es sentially unsafe. Moreover, to send out of the country a large number of tho best offi cers of the marine hospital servico at a time when every ono of them will be sorely needed at our own port 3 would very seri ously cripple the effective administration of our national quarantine servico, it in deed wo aro to havo such a service ami aro to have it properly administered by that organization. This naturally brings me to tbe consid eration of what I believe to bo the best sys tem of quarantine. I havo held in my offi cial "Report on Cholera in Europe and In dia," in a paper in the January number of The Forum and in various other publica tions that the best system of quarantine is ono under the absolute control and direc tion ot the national government through an independent commission of experienced sanitary experts. I have shown in these publications—l think unanswerably—that tho series of in- dependent local quarantines which exist in this country at present constitute no sys tem at, all and are essentially incapable of safeguarding tho general welfare of the na tion. I would, in conclusion, Point out tho ne cessity, if tho administration of national quarantine be handed over to tho marine hospital service, of providing for the strict est discipline and subordination in that corps. I have been surprised to unto in the newspaper reports of tho recent discussion in the United States senate upon the so called "Harris bill" objection to placing iv the hands of the official head of that serv ice—namely, the supervising surgeon gen eral—the power and responsibility which alone can render that service intelligent, harmonious and effective. It has never occurred to senators to dis turb or cripple Che efficiency of the medical service of the navy or that of tha army by the enactment of legislation which would cause the surgeon ganoral of the navy or the surgeon general of the army to be ignored or superseded. Why, then, should the quarantine organization, which at such a time as this may be able to render a service to the nation of incalculable value, bo hampered with limitations such as have so frequently rendered the efficiency of simi lar corps abortive?

IbOS ANGEUES HEKALD: MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 27, 1893. THEIR LITTLE GAME. It May Have Been a John on His Lordship, but He Liked It. A certain Englishman, who may be known as Lord C , was visiting ah American city where society received him with open arms at the samo time that it acknowl edged in privato tbe extreme difficulty it found in entertaining him. His lordships would not talk; perhaps he could not. At anyrato he showed very little Interest In most topics of conversation, and seemed deplorably obtuse to the point ot a good story. Only ono person, a brilliant woman named Mrs. A >, had the least success in Waking him to a scmblfense of eonversa tioual life, and she was consequently sad dled with the task ot amusing him at what ever gathering they appeared. "Lord O will take you dot to dinner," my dear," her hostess would whisper. "Now do your best to amosa him, won't yon, for I do want tho dinner to be a suc cess, and his long silences are so depress ing!" At first the sit nation was rather amusing to tho vietits so constantly laid on tho block of conversation, but there come a time when she was heartily tared ot It, and frankly acknowledged to herself that Bhe was "talked out." Time wont On, however, as time has a way of doing, and one evening came tho farewell dlntier to Lord C . He was to leavo town the fiexh morning, and his host ess sought out bis entertainer with the well wow request! "Now do make him talk, dear. He will sit beside you as usual." But Mrs. A-— had a headache, and moreover her wits had deserted her. fehe had talked at everything with this non committal man, from the nonse of lords to fox hunting, and she fslt absolutely hope less of finding another subject in which he might take even a fleeting interest. A bright idea occurred to ,her, and she said to him, in a low tone, as soon as they were seated at table: "I have a headache tonight, and It doesn't seem to me that I can talk. Vet wo must say something or be thought very peculiar, so I will turn to you und say in au ani mated tone, 'One—two—three!' You can reply, with groat earnestness, 'Four—five six!' "I will become argumentative and assert, 'Seven—eight—nine—tenl' ana you can gently contradict me by counting up to twenty. So we can continue for a whole evening, without having to exert ourselves to think." Tho idea struck tho Englishman as being exceedingly fnnny, and the plan was forth with carried out. The lady Was animated, the gentleman amused. In fact, he broke into such guffaws of laughter that the rest of the table ceased talking to listen, but in vain. Both were discreet, and at sach criaei counted in almost Inaudible tbneS. After dinner, so delighted waa Lord C—— with the ge,me that he insisted on following his companion into a corner and playing it until 10 o'clock, when he left her exhausted but triumphant. He had no) sooner gone than his hostess rushed over to Mrs. A and exolaimed: "How did you do It? May I ask what roused him to such interest'" But the culprit ..hook her head seriously and replied, "It was entirely confidential." The story waa too good to keep, however, and sho told it to several intimate friends. One of them, a young man who did not know the Englishman in question, once re peated it in a Canadian household where ho was a visitor. He did not scruple to set forth the Englishman's general obtuseness and density, and when he had finished a gentleman whose name he had not caught said with quiet emphasiß: "She may have been making game of me, but it waa the pleasantest evening I ever spent in my life and I forgivo her." It was Lord C , and the abashed young man could not help feoling that his lord ship had the bettor of it.—Youth's Com panion. Business Sympathy. A bright printer's clerk who was in structed to write a letter of condolence to a firm, the head of which had recently died, did it in this way: "Wo are greutly pained to learn of the loss sustained by your houso, and extend to you our heartiest sympathy. We notice thut the circular you send us announcing Mr. 's death was lithographed in the provinces. We regret tbat you did not see your way clear to let us estimate for the woik. Tho next time there is a bereave ment iv your house wo shall be glad to quote for your printing, and are confident that wo can give you better work at less cost than anybody else in the business. Hoping soon to hear from you, we remain, witb profound sympathy, yours truly." There is something soothing in that last sentence. —Ml 11 i on. Cnren Coiisiirnption, Coughs, Cronp, Sore Throat.
