FAVORABLE WEATHER Brings Hope to the Fever Sufferers NUMBER OF NEW CASES GROWS BUT PERCENTAGE OF DEATHS IS SMALL Expert Guiteras Believes the Disease Under Control and Will Soon Be Stamped Out kuoela.fi Press Special Wire. NEW ORLEANS, La., Sept. 27.—Warm weather In the past two or three days has had) the effect of Increasing, to some ex tent, the number of new cases of the prevailing type of yellow fever, b'tt It has equally had the effect of sending down the death rate. There were 23 cases on Saturday, 17 yesterday, and up to t):3© o'clock today 21 cases. But there were only two deaths on Saturday, none on Sunday and two today. Present experience, therefore, proves that warm weather adds to the number of cases, but reduceethe mortality, while colder weather diminishes the number of cases and, enlarges the death rate. The physicians and. authorities to night generally agree that the situation. Is steadily improving. They believe the chances are growing more remote every 'day of an epidemic, and that there is little likelihood that the disease will as sume, before cord weather, a much more Virulent form than at present. Prof. Uets, mho is at the head of the work of sanitation, and who superin tends the fumigating of all houses, said to the Associated Press reporter tonight: "Some little figuring that I have done discloses that there have been, up to 6 o'clock tonight exactly 158 cases. Of those 19 have died, and I am able to state this evening that 38 have actually been discharged as entirely recovered. There for* there remain only 101 cases, and while I would not like to undertake a statement of the number of those on the war to recovery the death rate among them, with present conditions, will be small. The death rate tonight is barely above 12 per cent." The deaths today were Fred Bachus and J. S. Cherry. Of the cases reported'this evening, six were found in the home for homeless men, a charitable Institution. Three cases were also reported col lectively today from Bayou Road', in the Oennln family. These cases, how ever, are considered mild. Of the two deaths, the Cherry case was reported several days ago, and the pa tient had received very careful treat ment, waa»hle case was considered a bad one. BacJius was taken sick four days ago. Bis people are poor, and' they did not attach much Importance to his Ill ness, only calling in a doctor a few hours before hfcstdet '.h, when they saw the pa tient rspldtty sinking. Dr. John Gui teres, the marine hospital expert, arrived here today. He does not care to see any of the patients in New Orleans who are suffering with yellow fever. He believes that the board of health here has taken the most effective means known to science to stamp out the disease; believes that the sickness Is in good control, and expresses the belief that It is of a mildi type. He does notbe lieve that there ls a particle of reason fo.r widespread) alarm. HOPE FOR THE BEST MOBILE, Ala., Sept. 27.—The report for Monday has greatly raised the spirits of the people here. They accept it as indi cating that the efforts to surround the disease and stamp it out are meeting with success. Three new cases were reported at noon for the previous 24 hours. The only death reported was that of Florence Barlow, aged 23 years.'She livttd on Elmira street, near Lipscomb. She was engaged to be married next month, and during her sickness her fiance was cot permitted to see her nor to attend the funeral, the regulations being so strict that none outside the physicians, clergy and undertakers may approach fever cases. A summary of the situation follows: Total cases to noon today. 54; total deaths, 8; discharged, 26; remaining un der treatfttent, 20. The report sent out Saturday night that there were four cases at Womaek Hill and Bandon Springs Is denied on the beat of authority. PRAYING FOR FROST EDWARDS, Sept. 27.—Seven new cases of yellow fever developed since last night. Mayor Redfleldi was taken sick this morning. The situation is grave and deaths are expected at any time, unless the much-prayed-for frost comes. COLORADO NOT SCARED DENVER, Sept. 27.—The reports of the spread of yellow fever in the South and of the large number of refugees said to be coming Into this State from New Orleans and other southern ports have caused no apprehension among officers of the State Board of Health. The dreaded: disease has never been known to prevail at an altitude greater than 3000 feet, and never has a case been recorded in the State of Colorado. AT BILOXI BILOXI, Miss,, Sept. 27.—The yellow fever situation here today does not seem to be Improved. There were quite a number of new cases reported and one death, that of David Chlnn, and the epidemic seems to be spreading very rapidly. One of the cases reported today ls that Of T. F. QUI, a prominent business man. The board of health reports: Total cases to date, 114; now under treatment, 66; new cases, 7; total deaths to date, 5.

BAIL ACCEPTED Figel Admitted to Bail With Barnes' Consent SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—Judge Carroll Cook decided today to admit Theodore Figel, charged with the mur der of his employer, Isaac Hoffman, to ball pending the trial of the case against him. The amount fixed was J40.000. The question came up for decision upon habeas corpus proceedings, but after the court had decided that this was not the proper course of procedure in the promise, District Attorney Barnes created considerable surprise by an nouncing that as the official prosecutor of the county he had no objection to the admission of the defendant to bail, as the evidence was conflicting and un certain and left considerable doubt as to the guilt of the defendant. Attorney Ach, who has been engaged as special counsel, appeared surprised at this statement, and apologized to the court for having taken up its time, say ing that he should certainly not have done so had he known of the views of the district attorney. OUSTED OFFICERS Still Have Hopes of Holding Their Positions SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—The fact that the supreme court had cited Aud itor Broderick to appear before it in bane for the purpose of showing cause why he should not be compelled to ac cept the tax levy adopted by the ousted board of supervisors, thereby recog nizing the validity of that body, caused an immense crowd of interested spec tators to assemble in the court room of department one today. The matter had been set for 10 a. m., but at that hour, owing to the absence of Justice Temple, the hearing was deferred, by order of Chief Justice Beatty, until 2 p. m. When court convened there was considerable discussion as to certain disputed ques tions of fact in relation to the title of the contending boards of supervisors, and the chief justice finally decided that testimony be taken, and referred the whole matter to Commissioner Niles Searls for that purpose. Court there upon adjourned, and the commissioner proceeded to take the testimony. AMERICAN GRAIN Needed to Supply the Needs of England WASHINGTON, Sept. 27.—A sum mary of the condition of the Liverpool market for bread stuffs is supplied the state department by United States Con sul Boyle at that place. The imports into Liverpool from this country will probably be on a large scale for some time, the estimate being 50,000 to 70,000 quarters weekly for some months. The demand for maize is large and the im ports into Liverpool during the past year surpassed all previous records. The United States contributed more than two thirds of the whole. The coming year's demand upon the United States is esti mated at 50,000 to 60,000 quarters weekly. The Liverpool trade, the consul writes, is often much disappointed by the unre liable and uncertain character of the in spection at certain American ports, and especially the more southerly ports, and also by heavy shortages, amounting at times to as much as 5 to 7 per cent in con- I signments of grain. A STRANGE CASE The Midnight Abductor Appears at Paso Robles PASO ROBLES, Cal., Sept. 27.—0n Sunday morning an almost successful attempt was made to abduct MissHor tense Gibbons, aged 15 years, a high school student, residing with Mr. and Mrs. H. Hibbard. She retired as uual Saturday night and woke about 2:15 a. m. to find herself in the arms of a man who had carried her about 150 yards from <he house. She screamed and strug gled with her captor. He nearly choked hefe, but her cries were heard and help arrived, not, however, before the man had fled. He is supposed to have en tered her room through her window and chloroformed her. Officers are on the track of the abductor. William Hrdman, who came to Miss Gibbons' rescue, was armed, and to that fact he r.ttributes the man's rapid flight. Wants a Divorce SAN JOSE, Cal., Sept. 27.—A sensa tional divorce suit wasbegun in thisclty today. Thomas E.

NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—A dispatch to the Herald from Washington says: The Central American republics, according to the Pan-American diplomats in Wash ington, are undoubtedly on the verge of a general upheaval. The success of the revolutionists in Guatemala, the down fall of Dictator Barrios and the eleva tion of Prospero Morales to the Presi dency, are believed to be Inevitable and likely to bring about a, revolu tion in several of the sister republics. The imprisonment of the Costa Rlcati Consul General, Don Eduardo Beren by the Nicaraguan authorities is regarded as a serious breach of International courtesy that can hardly prevent a rup ture. The seeds of sedition are easily sown in Honduras and the uneasiness in that country seems likely to result in an open revolt against President Bonllla. as an indirect result of the success of the revo lution in Guatemala. Salvador alone of the Spani9h-American States at present appears quiet and likely to remain so. A successful revolution in either of the States of Greater Central America would mean the dissolution of the feeble diplo matic bonds which now unite them and from present indications another coali tion of this nature might be difficult to bring afoout. A Spanish-American diplomat who is thoroughly familiar with the Central American situation says: "There seem' to be every probability that the revolu tionists in Guatemala will be masters of the government in a short time and that Barrios will be forced to leave the coun try, If he ls not assassinated. One of the strongest and most efficient supporters of the Guatemalan revolutionist General Domingo Vasquez, is now besieging Chinguinula, where President Barrios re sides. Vasquez, about for years ago, was President of Honduras and was driven, from that country largely through the power of Zelaya. He would like to re tain the Presidency of Honduras and should Morales become President of Guatemala through his aid. plots will be immediately formed for the downfall of President Bonllla. Vasquez, as Presi dent of Honduras, would be dangerous to the peace of Nicaragua. His hatred of Zelaya would easily find a pretext for arousing afresh the latter's opponents, who, with aid from Honduras and Guate mala, would probably be able to defeat Zelaya and elevate his rival, Alejandro Chamorro, to the Presidency. These re sults, I 'believe are almost sure to follow a revolutionary victory in Guatemala." Dr. Horatio Guzman, formerly Minister to the Unitect States from Nicaragua says: "Under present conditions it ls impos sible to prevent recurring revolutions in Central America. I have long heartiy advocated the establishment of a pro tectorate of the United States over Nic aragua and the other States, If not ac tual annexation, and In this view I am supported by a majority of the educated and moneyed class of the Central Ameri can States. I see no other means of in suring the benefits of peaceful republican government to Spanish America." GUATEMALAN REVOLUTION NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—A dispatch to the Herald from La Libertad says: The latest news received in this city from Guatemala is that several engagements have taken place between the govern ment and rebel forces near Quezelten ango and that each fight has resulted in the defeat of the government troops. The fighting in each Instance has been caused d.lrectly by the government's efforts to re-take Quezeltenango from the rebels. General De Leon, who was sent by Pres ident Barrios into thet fighting district with a large force of men, has gone over to the revolutionists, taking all his men. His first act after joining the rebellion was to capture the city of Retalhulen, which he now holds. The government has Just sent 600 men by the steamship City of Guatemala to Champerico, which port ls now in rebel hands. The true story of the capture by the In surgents of the seaport ot Ocas has Just become known. It seems that when the rebels approached Ocas the government authorities there made no attempt to de fend the town but took refuge on the steamship Barracouta and were brought to Salvador. PRICE FOR MORALES' HEAD SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—The lat est news from Guatemala received In this city states that a price of $100,000 has been placed on the head of Prospero Morales, the revolutionary leader, and his aide, Manuel Fuentes. It is asserted that an order to this effect has been pro mulgated by President Barrios. WILL CONFER England Will Join in the Sealing Conference LONDON, Sept. 27.—The announce ment ls made this afternoon that Lord Salisbury has not withdrawn from the Bering Sea conference, but simply ob jected to the presence of Japanand Rus sia. Great Britain is willing to take part in the conference and is endeavoring to secure the acquiescence of Canada. The whole trouble seems to be due to the failure of the Marquis of Salisbury to respond to the note of Ambassador Hay. No exception being taken to the notice that Ruslsa and Japanese experts would be present, Mr. Hay supposed the mat ter settled. It ls a curious fact that Col. Hay's dispatch of July 24th is omit ted from the Bering Sea blue book just Issued. McKinley's Outing ADAMS, Mass., Sept. 27.—The plane, of President McKinley and the memJbers of his party were slightly changedltoday on account of unpropltlous weather and the slight Indisposition of Mrs. McKin ley. The trip to WUUamstown, which had been planned, was deferred until to morrow. President McKinley and At- torney-General McKenna Joined Mr. Plunkett in an hour's drive about the town. During the ride a slight mishap occurred. As they w ere, passing along Summer street a strap broke and the collar on one of the horses fell off. The animal tripped' and fell, andi the other horse became frightened, but the coolness of the diriver prevented a serious acci dent. The president jumped out of the carriage and. the others followed. The horse was led back to the stable and an other sent out. The party then continued their ride. PARTY NAMES Nebraska Politictans Will Appeal to the Courts LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 27.—Some in teresting litigation is growing out of the peculiar state of politics in Ne braska. The Gold Democrats have filed a protest with the Secretary ot State against the Silver Republicans being designated in the ticket under that name. They state that new elec tion laws of the State prevent any new party taking the name or any part of a name of a political organization already in existence. In reply tomorrow the Silver Republi cans will begin by admitting the cor rectness of the Gold Republicans' in terpretation of the law, but will main tain that the Republicans are the usur pers and should be enjoined from usim? the title "Republican party," and in sup port of their position they will quote from a number of State platforms of the party in which a common use of both gold and silver is declared to be the car dinal principle of the Republican party and in which the free coinage of silver is supported. It is thought probable that the mat ter will reach national proportions be fore It ls settled. The Brewers' Combine NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—The Tribune says: The malsters' trust is now said to be permanently organized. All the details are declared to be completed, and it is said that a full outline of the organ - ization will be made at a public meeting to be held on Wednesday. Seymour Scott, President of the great malting company of Lyons, New York, is said, to be the chief promoter of the organiza tion, and E. R. Chapman of the firm o; Moore & Schley has looked after the financial end of the matter. The name said to be selected Is th; American Malting Company, and the' capital stock ls said to be $15,000,000 pre ferred, on which a 7 per cent dividend will be guaranteed, and $15,000,000 worth of common stock Jordan's Views OAKLAND, Sept. 27.—Prof. David Starr Jordan, In an address at the First Unitarian Church, declared that it would be better to have no courts than corrupt courts; if it is right to execute a sane man for murder, it is right to hang an. insane one. He held that it is as proper to prevent a pauper, insane person or criminal from reproducing his kind as it is to punish him. A Utopia, with all work equally divided, he de clared to be an abomination. It would be cheaper for San Francisco, he said, to board its evil population In the Palace Hotel than to have Tar Flat as it is Children should be giver, homes on farms Instead of being lodged In orphan asylums. Cavalry Shooting DENVER, Colo., Sept. 27.—A special to the Republican from Fort Wingate, N.

BOSTON WINS Baltimore Rooters Go Into Mourning AN OLD-FASHIONED BATTLE WHERE RUNS WERE COUNTED BY THE DOZEN The Game Practically Gives the League Championship to the Players From the Hub Associated Press Special Wire. BALTIMORE, Sept. 27.—Outside of a little contingent of faithful Boston "rooters'," who are making merry at the Eutaw house, there is no Joy in Balti more tonight. Boston has taken the pennant, and there seems to be little possibility that the "Champions" can save it. Hotter the"Wizard," Nops the "Southpaw" and "Brother Joe" Corbett. all went down like ripe grain in a hur ricane before the terrific onslaught of Boston's batters, until what seemed at first to be a victory for the home team was finally turned into a rout, the like of which has been seldom witnessed on a ball Meld. More than 25,000 people saw it done, and that they witnessed the downfall of their favorites with perfect good humor, gathering about the vic tors and cheering them heartily at the finish, gives the lie direct to two stories that have been current regarding the Baltimore baseball public, viz., that it does not patronize the game and that "rowdyism" is the rule upon its grounds. There have been few, If any, crowds as large In the history of the game. The story of what happened today may be briefly told. First came the awful struggle at the gates for tickets; then the straining, pushing and fighting for admission; then, the scramble for a place from which the diamond was vis ible, until every seat had an occupant, every inch of standing room was pre empted and men and boys clung, spider like to fences, telegraph poles or any other joint of vantage. The Bos ton "rooters," with their brass band, formed no small part of the great throng that they sunk into comparative insig nificance, but the band played on and the rooters rooted and shouted' Just the same. Finally the teams came on for practice and then In due time play be gan; and the multitude settled itself down to watch the battle. First Boston, made a run, then Baltimore made two, then each made three and the score was tied when Bo9ton added another to its string. Thus far all was well. Balti more, it ls true, had lost the lead, but not hopelessly. Then the visitors forged to the front with three more tal lies. This was bad, indeed, but hope still lived In Baltimore. And so It ran until the dreadful sev enth Inning. Corbett had been crippled by a hot liner early in the play; Nops had been batted out of the box a little later and Hotter had been hit for four runs; but still the crowd hoped on. No one looked for a deluge, as Hotter had. apparently steadied himself and no runs had beer made off him in two consecu tive innings. All at once It came. Sin gle followed double, double followed sin gle; player after player crossed the plate, and the crowd grew tired and wondered if it would ever end. The of ficial scorers almost lost their count. Hotter became discouraged and wanted to go off and sit down, but Captain Rob inson kept him in the box. Finally the fusilade of hits was ended; Hotter came down from the air, everybody took a long breath and the scorer figured out that Boston had made nine runs, all of which were earned. That settled It, and although the Champions made a final rally In their half and batted out three runs, following it up with two more In. the eighth, their efforts were not more consequent than are those of men who strive to whistle up the wind. During the volley of base hits in the seventh the crowd was a study. As the first two or three hits were made the vast throng looked serious; then, as hits began to pour out like water from a trough, a smile and then a hearty laugh broke forth, and none could have en joyed the discomfiture of the Champions more than did their admirers In the vast audience. Of the many hearty and spon taneous hursts of applause, none were more ringing than that which greeted Hamilton when, in the fourth inning, after being trampled upon and severely stunned by Jennings at second, he made a grand run for home on Lowe's single, collided with the Baltimore's fleshy backstop and falling heavily plucklly crawled toward the base, almost faint ing as lie touched it. Again, at the end of the game, 10,000 people gathered about the visitors, shook them by the hand, shouted cheerful pleasantries at them, told them what good fellows and fine players they were and finally sent them away with a shout of approbation, a fitting climax for the greatest baseball spectacle Baltimore has ever seen.
