Bectlon Above Canal Street Has No
New Cases—Disease Progress*
Ing Only In the Poorer
By Associated Press.
NEW ORLEANS, July 28.— The fol
lowing report as to the progress of yel
low fever in New Orleans up to 6 p. m.
this evening has been given out:
New cases, 21; total cases to date,
227; deaths today, 3; deaths to date,
47; new foci, 8.
Of the deaths today one occurred at
the emergency hospital and was one
of the cases transferred there yester
day. The Institution now has nineteen
cases under treatment and today dis
charged its first patient as cured.
9 : The men of science who are warring
against the yellow fever plague ended
the day's labors confident that the situ
ation is still well in hand and with no
Immediate prospect of becoming alarm
ing. Today's official report of yester
day's progress of the disease shows that
the entire section above Canal street
was free from a single new case, and
that the fever was spreading only in
the poorer habitations of the downtown
section, with new cases Isolated except
in, the heart of the French market
quarter. The health authorities con
tinued to hold also that the plague re
mains an Italian infection, all except
two of the twenty-six cases reported
today being of that nationality. Almost
without exception since the beginning
ol the fever those who have fallen vic
tims of the disease have been of the
poorer classes, many of them not long
residents ■• of the' United States, and
therefore unacclimated. ■ ' ' ~

J> Today's .'deaths have been principally
6i ', Italians. .'The 'first' death In .the
emergency hospital occurred today. The
hospital was opened 'yesterday ; with
' thirteen . cases and an . equal \ number
was added \ today? . ' Into ' the ■" hospital
are being sent the worst cases of indi
gent I unfortunates. It is therefore ex
pected-that the mortality In' this di
rection will be unusually high. ,
;The Morgan line, steamer Excelsior,
whose passengers were detained at Ha
vana, brought news on her arrival here
that Cuba is to send; a commission of
yellow fever experts to study local'con
ditions in New ; Orleans., ; Other points
in the south are also to be .visited.
Meantime the advices received through
the Associated Press of quarantines put
biiuby the Central and South American
countries and the Indies against New
Orleans are arousing the population to
a -supreme' effort to wipe out the in
fection. It is known that ' Havana,
Vera'Crus, Tamplco and other ■ former
centers of yellow fever are taking pre
cautions to protect themselves against
communication with New ■' Orleans.
Nicaragua, however, is an exception
and her consul has informed the au
thorities here that no bar will be up
against the. city. There is, however,
little advantage In that . The senti
ment. here |at present is strongly in
favor of minimizing the danger of fur
ther j infections from ports where fruit
steamers touch that practically all
lines • have determined to send their
steamers elsewhere.
System of Inspection
The system of inspection which went
into effect today contemplates a visit
to every house in the city, so that no
case of sickness may escape detection.
j| The city has been divided into a large
number of districts. Each Inspector is
provided with : a large oil can from
which he Is "directed to pour oil on all
exposed waters, tubs,' cisterns and

CHICAOO, July 28.— "Always out

Flashy dressers J with the ' price ■ of a

Broadway. 'How many drinks . ' were

Such is the verdict passed by the re
doutable "Scott" of Funeral jj moun
tain' upon the metropolis of the east.
Disgusted with the effete American
civilization Sir Walter and his better

of the things that the red-riecktied,
blue-shlrted possessor -of an Eldorado
says about New York are unprintable.
Mrs. Scott is of the same opinion.
- , "I've spent 530.000 already .on this
trip and when I get back to my mine
it will be 185,000. That's enough.. I
guess. But If .I'd filled every fist that

, CHICAGO, July 28.— Johann Hoch
"Bluebeard" and confessed bigamist,
sentenced ;to be hanged today ' for
poisoning one of his wives, walfthls
afternoon granted a reprieve until Aug
ust 25 by Governor Deneen. The stay
ot execution followed hours of anxiety
on the ' part of Hoch, who had never
given up hope, and was allowed by the
governor only after the latter had been
assured that the necessary funds to
appeal the ' case had been raised. The
amount, $500, was given by an attorney
and friend of Hoch's counsel. The at
torney declared that he was actuated
purely by humanitarian motives.;, .-,. -
An incident at the j jail during the
preparations for the execution was the
appearance of a physician and a wo
man, who told Jailer Whitman that
they wanted to help in Hoch's battle
for life. They said they wished to
raise . funds for the condemned man,
and asked Jailer Whitman to delay the
hanging as long as possible. Hoch's
attorney, however, had already , been
in communication with the authorities
regarding a stay of sentence.
All arrangements had been made for
the execution today, and in view of the
action of Governor ' Deneen yesterday
In refusing a stay of , execution and
similar action by the board of par
dons, Hoch's chance for life was con
sidered slight. ' . :
About the time set for the execution
the woman and attorney, appeared for
the first time. ■ The attorney,. it Is said,
telephoned Hoch's lawyer that the for
mer had $500 to give toward aiding to
appeal the case. The two lawyers has
tened to the Jail, told Jailer Whitman
of the money secured, • and arranged
with the jailer to postpone as long as
possible the execution of Hoch. . Mean
while t;hey sought State Attorney Hea
ley and had him arrange* a conference
with Governor Deneen over the long
distance telephone. '„'.-. ,
Governor Satisfied as to the Money
.' Hoch's counsel told the governor that
there was only lacking a small sum of
the amount necessary for a review of
the case. After discussing; the matter
with Mr. Healey, the governor finally
consented to a stay for the condemned
man, and so notified Hoch's counsel.
/ Hoch. even several hours before the
time set for the hanging, was quite
confident of executive clemency, al
though at times he seemed to j despair
of receiving a reprieve. . He retired
early in the night, awoke at .7 o'clock
this morning, cordially greeted his
death watch ,", and two guards I and
talked .with, them for »ome time. He
, changed his , clothes and seemed : re
signed td;,th«^fate that awaited him,
but assured his few visitors that there

physician, called and Hoch , dUcuMad
with j them his ■ prospects f or_ a stay,
and reiterated, his i innocence of the
charge of murder. He read the. Bible
and said his prayers. .' . ;;
Meanwhile, unknown to Hoch, . the
negotiations for the reprieve were pro
gressing. It was noon and the delay
up to this time . Inspired Hoch with
renewed hope. He ate dinner, smoked
a cigar and read. .'.-.■ ..,- ,
' Half "an hour later, through the win
dow of ' his quarters, he received i the
news of his reprieve. It was conveyed
to him by. spectators of , the proceed
ings ' in j the state's attorney's office.
He was disinclined to believe the news
at first, but when it was brought also
by the ministers he was overcome. He
clasped their hands and declared that
he was the happiest man • alive. , The
crowd about the jail sent up 'a shout
. that -. was heard for blocks. The pris
oners joined in the demonstration and
Hoch was almost overcome. :
Hoch said: "If the supreme court de
cides against me I am willing to die.
I ask no mercy and no favor. I believe
in the law, but I feel that if the su
preme court has a chance to review the
case it will result favorably to me." \
