NUMBER OF NEW CASES GROWS
BUT PERCENTAGE OF DEATHS IS
SMALL
Expert Guiteras Believes the Disease
Under Control and Will Soon
Be Stamped Out

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. Snell, a wealthy
land holder and owner of the Smith
Creek hotel, is the defendant, and ls
charged by his wife, Catherine Snell,
with cruelty and infidelity. Mrs. Snell
claims she has been beaten by her Hus
band's fist, struck down with a chair
and in other ways has been treated in
humanly. She says Mr. Snell once
threatened to throw her over a grade
400 feet to a canyofl below. The Snell
estate is valued at $150,000 and the wife
demands a division of the property.
This is her second divorce suit. The first
one was brought ten years ago on a
charge of desertion, but there wasarec
onciliation and the case slumbered in
court until today, when it was dismissed
to make way for a more sensational pro
ceeding.

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27.—Maurice
C. Blake, ex-mayor of thisclty, and for

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 28, 1897
BARRIOS' FALL
Likely to Be Accomplished
Soon
PAN AMERICAN DIPLOMATS
LOOK FOB REVOLUTIONS IN
OTHEB STATES
The Only Hope for Central American
Peace Lies in a United States
Protectorate
Associated Press Special Wire.
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 -

to be held on Wednesday. Seymour
Scott, President of the great malting

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

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. The

vere for delicate nerves and often does more <rf____rv »_rf^"
harm than good. Electricity is known the world ~ y^SjMSk.,^*
over as a cure for disease, pains of all kinds and J __f_aw_dß
as a restorative to weak nerves, but it must be I MBfT
applied in a mild, steady and continuous stream. J ' J W\__jr
Such is the current given by Dr. Sanden's Elec- W
trie Belt, and this accounts fer its wonderful W jF
success in curing after all other treatments fall. f
So mild, the most sensitive woman is soothed A M_
by it, and so vitalizing, warming and genial In 1R
Its life-giving force that the patient grows stron- T_Kl_if
ger and brighter In the joy of good health while hardly realizing that
it Is worn. Every one knows that Electricity is strengthening. Some
do not believe in Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt because they have been HM
discouraged by cheap imitations, of which there are many. Call and B
