SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12.—Tbe
■tcamship Australia arrived this evening
from Honolulu, bringing the following
advices to the Associated Press:
HONOLULU, Sept. s.—Forty-one cases
Of cholera have been reported up to date.
With thirty-five deaths. The disease at
tacks only natives. Every effort is being
made to siamp'il out. No island steam
ers are allowed to leave port without first
Temaining in quarantine for five days.
Passengers must undergo the same or
deal. The Australia leaves today for
San Francisco with cabin passengers
The cholera, according to eeneral the
ory, was brought to Honolulu by the
■ teamer Helgic. which arrived nere on
the oth of August with 583 Chinese immi
grants on board. The vessel had a clean
hill of health, but following the custom
the Chinese were placed in quarantine.
Ou the IStli of August it was learned that
three of the inimigrants had died—two
from bowel complaint aud tiie othetr from
exhaustion. Tho third man was aji aged
opium fiend, and it is claimed that if be
had oeen supplied with his Agular
amount of the drug he would haveMived.
As soon as the company announced tbat
death had occurred ai the quarantine sta
tion people became alarmed, und declared
that Asiatic cholera had broken out among
Ibe Chinese immigrants.
It is not itinusuall for forms of bowel
complaint to break ont among the steer
age passengers iluring quarantine, owing
to the change of die :i i the propensity
to (ill up on fruits ami food sent in by
friends from, the city, but tbo health au

Bolutely nothing to indicate that lite sick
ness was dtte to cholera or any disease of
a contagious nature. A careful diagnosis
was made of each case by physicians, and
not a single symptom of cholera was dis
covered. In the meantime two others
were attacked by dysentery, and it was
decided to extend the term of quaarntine
until all signs of sickness had disap
W. O. Smith, president of the board of
health, made a statement which was pub
lished. It allayed the fears of the people
here tro some extent, but ou the morn
ing of the 2ntb. another alarm was
. A|specia! meeting ol the boar'l of health
was held to consider measures to be
taken m consequence of the death of a
native woman. The doctor who attended
the case stated that the woman died on
the 19tb, after suffering about ten hours,
with an illness very similar to Asiatic
cholera. Another B native was taken
down with the -ante symptoms and died
The board of health held another meet
ing on the 21st to confer with local
physicians. After a general discussion
the medical men would not give a decided
answer regarding the disease, awaiting a
series of bacteriological experiments.
They were inclined to believe tbat the
disease was a form of sporadic cholera
morbus rather that Asiatic cholera.
Anothc meeting was held oo the 22d
and four oi tiie most prominent pnysic
lana pronounced tbe disease Asiatic
cnolera. It was decided to inaugurate a
system of house to house disinfection
and other precautionaiy measures were
adopted to insure, if possible,the security
of communication.
The doctor of the Belgic is blamed by
people, many ol whom claim that be
.made a false report to Port Physician
'Day. When the vessel arrived here lie
■ reported that three t'blnese had died on
• the way over. He claimed that heart
. disease carried off two and pneumonia
was responsible for the deatb ot tbe
third, Fellow steerage pas-eugers now
here say that the symptoms were quite
similar to the cases tlutt ended fatally ac
the quarantine station.
No cases developed among the Chine-e
at the quarantine station after Angus I
.Mb, and the immigrants have since been
I n to the departure ot tbe Monowai,
oo August 'J'id, five cases of cholera de
veloped at lwilei, Honoluu; four aeath-.
On the evening of the 24th another case
was reported. 1 or rive days there were
no cases reported and the people breathed
freer, believing that tbo hud been
stumped out. But it was only a respite.
On the.'Hitu nine cases were' reported,
five of which proved fatal. One of the
unfortunat.s wa- a -Banian on thn Ben
nington named W. H. Goebel, He was
taken ill while on board the vessel and
lived but a short time. On the following
two days fours cases wero reported :un
the third seven developed. With
the eioeption of the Bennington sailor,
the scourge had attacked only natives.
ihe chief difficulty in dealing with tiie
cholera here is the ignorance and un
clean habits of the natives and Chinese.
The natives, of course, have no compre
hension of the nature of the disease, its
nature or the proper treatment of it. In
this as in all otner respects, they arc
niorc like children antl must bo treatetl
accordingly. During the smaiixox epi
demic of IX. .1 thoy tlid not hesitate to
batne iv the oceao water and rarely dis
closed any outbreak of the disease in
their,huts. Ten thousand died nt that
time. In Iss], on another outbreak of
smallpox, tbey were bandied by intelli
gent white men and the ravuges were not
so great. The idea of a grim disease is
not comprehended, lie will permit the
cholera discharges to remain on the
premises indefinitely if permitted to do
co and is not willing to follow instruc
tions as to cleunliness.
J So far as the immediate source of the
cholera germs can bo found, it is in the
raw fish which the natives eat. just as
raw oysters are eaten in other countries.
It aannot be said with certainty that tbe
germs come from tiie fish, but in nearly
all of the cases which have occurred the
patients have eaten it.
The only white person who has been
attacked with the disease was a sailor of
the I'nited States steamer Bennington.
She lies in the harbor, some distance
from any dock. The man had not been
ashore for some days. He was suddenly
taken with tbs disease and died. He
had bathed over the side of tho ship but
the water ol tho harbor is remarkarblv
illtan and tho tide Hows freely. There
is, however, a stream llowing through
tbe city on the banks of which were
situated many Chinese wash hot:ses and
whore the natives throw much refuse'
matter. It is believed that the refuse of
this stream may have contaminated the
waters of the harbor and the sailor may
have, in some way. come in contact with
the germs or be may havo eaten fruit
brought on board, the physicians aro
gradually locating th« germ centers, but
new cases arise in unexpected quarters
and there have not been a sufficient num
ber of facts to eoiable'any safe generaliza
tion to be made.

Ingenious Fraud tor Smuggling Chinese
Into This Country"
The Hong Kong tale and Female Histrlenitts
Wish to Visit the Atlanta
SAX FRANCISCO, Sept. 12.—( ollector
Wise has discovered an ingenious fraud
by which shrewd San r ranclaco ?specula
tors in the Chinese traffic are seeking'to
evade tho Geary law and introduce about
SOU Chinese into'the I nitad States tinder
the pretense that they are skillful tictora
and that they are coming to America to
give the visitors mt the Atlanta exposition
an opporuiily to swe some of ihe male and
female hjstrioisls of Hong Kong.
A band of more than 2UJ men and .14
women have already been landed at Vic
toria and their ostiiers, headed by Little
Pete and notorious Leong Nam, have in
geniously dodged Francisco and ap
plied for their admission into the United
States at Ogdensbnig. X. Y.
If the applicants ahouid gain tempor
ary entrance on tne ground that tney are
legitimate actors inspectors will be sent
to Atlanta to see now tbey deport them
selves and wateli their movements. The
collector here lias evidence, however, that
the men are seeking a permanent home
as laborer- and that they know nothiug
about acting. There ia also evidence in
the hands of tho collector that the women
were purchased in Hong Kong at $000
each and tbe projectors of the scheme
have contracts by which they are to lie
sold at Atlanta tor $1800 each, if tbey
can be safely landed there the two or
three BCD who engineered the plan hero
would earn about MO.OOO. Tho women
would of course,remain the slaves nf,tbeir
purchasers for a long period of years if
not for their entire lives,tbe design being
to quietly ship them to the low quarters
of Chinatown at the conclusion of the At
lanta exposition.
The projectors et the plan got their cue
from the federal law relating to the
World's fair at Chicago. I'nder a special
act Chinese and other foreigners were
allowed to luna for the purpose of giving
exhibition- and acting. A similar pro
vision exists in the caso of tne Atlanta
The Jackson's Hole Trouble
WASHINGTON, Sept. 12.-The Indian
bureau has granted permission to Agent
Teter at the Fort Hall leservation in
Idaho to allow Certain BannOck Indians
to go into the Jackson's Hole district,
under military escort, in search of propj
ertv abandoned there by them on the oc
casion of the attack maue by the settlers
on them. Agent T'etcr requested permis
sion to grant passes to these Indians for
the purpose indicated, und his request
was referred to General Coppinger, who
approved it. The Indians probably will
lie allowed to go soon and will be accom
panied by a troop of cavalry. The ques
tion of hunting game is not involved.

Wells and Titus did not appear.
The sprint wus nol begun until the

good lead over Cabunne. Bald, wbo was
in fourth place, would have been unable
to get through, out he saw the nolo ana
made a dart lor it and got through a good
length to his cr-dit, leaving Keiser and
Cubann? to light It out. Tyler ami John
son did not start in the two-mile handi
cap, and Sanger was the only man in tho
scratch. At the mile and a half mark he
caught his held and the time card was
bung out for 4:24 3-5, a new world's rec
ord for the two-mile professional handi
cap. In the hour ride Titus began to
break records at the seventh mile and
had covered at tbe end of the hour 27
miles and 189 yards, beating his Ameri
can record, but not lowering the world's
record made by Mitchell two weeks ago.

LOUISVII.I.K. Sept. 12. — Not only tho

J. VV. r>Mtcnell*"AddresscS (he Stale
Aniud by the Electrical Carnival He
Changes Hi* Subject From Agricul
tural .lachinery to Electricity
SACRAMENTO, Sept. 12.--The ad
dress given eHCh year 111 tho fair pavilion
at the invitation of the State Agricultural
society was delivered tonight by J. W.
Mitchell of Los Angeles. He came here
several days ago prepared to talk upon
subjects which woulo have been of greitt
interest to the people ot California In
particular and the coast in general. He
would have speken of the marvelous ad
vanecment in agricultural machinery,
would have dwelt upon the causes of de
pression and from his standpoint jointed
out a way to reform existing conditions.
It was his intention nlso .to refer to the
millions of money which California has
poured into the United States treasury
without receiving adequate compensa
tion in return in the way of appropria
tions. He would have urged tbe presi
dent of tne United States to visit the
I' icilic coast more frequently, and tha*
California lie given a place in the next
lint Mr. Mitchell destroyed that speech
and prepared a new one. He was amazed
by the muginlicent electrical carnival
which tool; place in this city lirt Monday
night and then prepared v new address
with Klectrieity as his theme. His ad
dress was an able and eloquent effort and
was listened to by a large audience. He
spoke in glowing terms of Sacramento's
great enterprise ami of tne wonderful
future before ber for securing menufactor
ies. Klectrieity is not a coming force. It
is here. Its power has been demon
strated. The possibilities for other (lec
tions of California are just as great as
those of Sacramento.
There was no attraction at the State
Fair grounds this morning on account of
rain. In the af!ernoon tbe running race
programme was carried out.the trots hav
ing been postponed until a good day and
track, t'llie course was muddy and slow.
There was v good crowd pre«ent and bet
ting was lively. It rained lightly for a
time during the afternoon. The notable
event ot the day wai the time mado by

000,000, and Frame, $174,000,000 out of
$070,000,001). Dr. Mendez, who gives these
llgures, estimates the annual military
expenses of the United States at $80,000,
--000, but this omits $140,000,000 for mil
itaiy pensions. When these are included
our total military expenses are greater
than those of any other country, with
the possible exception of Russia.
A race was recently rowed at Deal,

His Career One of Deceit and False
The Famous Lady Populist Handles the Ex-
Senator Without Oloves — Calls
Him a Plagiarist
WICHITA, Kan., Sept. 12.-Mre. Mary
E. Lease, the Populist, orator, today is
out in a review tilled with invective
directed against ex-Senator John J.
Ingalls. She said : I
"Mr. Ingalls' whole career before the
people has been one of deceit and false
hood. Not only is he a political frauds
but he has built up his splendid reputa
tion as an orator by using quotations
siolon from French and Spanish writers.
His thefts from Halton have already been
exposed but other instances of his liter
ary thefts have not become generally
known. When Mr. ingalls stood before
the Young Men's Republican league of
Topeka lie broke out in a flowery and
eloquent, strain. The sentiment whs bor
rowed from 11ubo"s translation of Catil
lar, tho famous Spanish patriot. Many
other beaiititul things he said in that ad
dress were borrowed verbatim from thd
Spanish writers and F'rencb translators.
He gave the same thing when addressing
the s!intent-'law club of tbe state univer
sity last June. There are other instances
of like character for Mr. Ingalls' speeches
are simply mosiao work, beautiful mosiuc
work, true, but not bis own. Ho is the
most erratic, inconsistent, contradictory,
pitiful and contemptiPle figure in Kan
sas history."
