ASKS THAT MACHIAS BE KEPT AT COLON So Devastating Has Been ths Cholera Outbreak That Relief Camps Are Powerless. LONDON', June 12. — The famine in India grows worse. The Standard's Simla cor respondent, in a mail letter, says: . "It would be rash to assume from tho almost stationary relief figures that the corner will soon be turned. So devastating has been the cholera outbreak, so numer ous the mortality and so blind the terror inspired by this black death that the fam ine relief camps in Bombay presidency, which contained thousands of workers, melt away and are left empty in the courpe of a couple of days. "Starving though they be, they prefer to fly to their own home and to die ln quiet, rather than to remain in the famine relief camns, where tho cholera Is strik ing down a hundred workers daily. "Terrible stories come from Dohad. There the famine Is at its worst and now the cholera has arrived to complete the f.ork. An eyewitness says: " 'As we walked through these quiet streets we saw deserted homes and dead bodies. One of the bravest acts witnessed was a little girl about seven attempting to care for two little brothers after the mother had given up all hope and lain down near them to die. She was feeding a fire which burned beneath a broken pot, in which simmered the almost rotten feet and bones of fome dead animal. Tho scene cannot be painted too black. No account we have ever read of any famine would picture the state of affairs at Dohad. 1 " The Standard's correspondent says the mortality estimates are Inaccurate, as unnumbered, dead bodies are polluting the streams and spreading contagion. — — — HORRORS OF THE INDIAN FAMINE INDESCRIBABLE . WASHINGTON, June 11.— Major Gen eral E. S. Otis, accompanied by his aids. Captain Slayden and Lieutenant Stanley, reached Washington this morning. He was met at the station by Adjutant Gen eral Corbln and General Schwann, and the party were driven directly. to the Ar lington Hotel. After breakfasting Gen eral Otis repaired to the War Depart ment, where he formally reported to Mr. Meiklejohn, as acting Secretary. Thence General Corbin escorted him and his aids to the White House. The Presi dent was in his private office in close consultation with Senator Allison, Sena tor Cullom and Justice Harlan when the party arrived. General Otis and General Corbin were immediately ushered into the Presidential library, where Mr. McKln- Icy met General v-tls with the utmost cordiality, congratulating him upon his apparent good health, and thanking him several times for -is signal services to the country. General Otis made -no report : to- the President in detail. After a few min utes the President Invited General Otis into his office and presented him to Sen ators Allison and Cuiiom and Justice Harlan, and for over half an hour Gen eral Otis remained talking over the situ ation in the Philippines. The President and his visitors were in tensely Interested in what the general had to say and with his opinion of the rxistlng situation in the archipelago. Af ter General Otis left the White House he was naturally reticent concerning the subject of his interview with the Presi dent, but he did not hesitate to reiterate his statement, made repeatedly since landing at San Francisco, that the Fili pino rebellion as an organization was dead. When his attention was called to th« views of Judpe Taft, president of the Philippine Commission, in the Manila dispatches printed this morning, he ex pressed the opinion that they were satis factory. The United States would be compelled to maintain in the Philippines for a considerable period as large an army ab was there at present. "The army," said he, "will be needed as a measure of repression until the rob bers and guerrillas are stamped out. -The maintenance of this large force Is neces sary owing to the vast extent of terri tory which we must cover. We have es tablished ourselves In Negros, Cebu, Sa mar and many of the other islands. In addition to Luzon, and I are to-day actually exercising effective authority over more territory than Spain ever did." General Otis said practically all the leaders of the Insurgents were cither dead, captured or pacified. . The* recent rapture of General Pilar del Rio. - he thought, had probably been effected with the consent of that general. So far as Aguinaldo himself was concerned, Gen eral Otis was not inclined to credit the report of his death. In his opinion it mattered little, however, , -whether Aguin aldo was deadl or. alive, as his Influence had been completely destroyed. "Agulnaldo," he said, "is probably In hiding somewhere , ln the mountains - of Northern Luzon, but ¦ he carries little more influence than any other Individual Next Thursday He Will Again Call at the White Houss and Pre sent His Keport in Detail. Warmly Congratulated Upon the Work Accomplished in the Orient. GENERAL OTIS IS THANKED BY THE PRESIDENT at large. He Is discredited and a dead issue." Asked as to whether in the event of more acute complications in China troop.s could be spared from the Philippines for service there. General Otis replied: j "Possibly, poBslblv." General Otis left to-night for West Point, whero he will report In per pon to Secretary Root. Ho is entirely In the dark as to his future assignment to duty. He will remain at West Point with the Secretary until after the gradu ating exercirfes are over and will return to Washington with the Secretary, arriving here on Thursday morning, when he will again call on the President and make a report in detail of the operations of the army under his command, and submit such suggestions and recommendations as shnll seem to him proper. He will leave here again Thursday night for his old home at Rochester, where extensive preparations ar« being made to celebrate his homecoming on Friday.

ARRAIGNS THE PLUTOCRACY OF THE COUNTRY ST. LOUIS. June 11.— The Sabbaths scenes of disorder and bloodshed were followed to-day by comparative quiet throughout the city. Last night's riot was the all-absorbing topic, especially among .the police force and the officers and men of the Sheriff's posse comitatus. They discussed it in all its bearings, the opinion being expressed that the posse men had done their full duty and no more. The strikers and their sympathizers, naturally, viewed the occurrence . ln a light diametrically opposite to that of the Sheriff's posse, the officials of the former making the claim that the men were shot down in cold blood. Cars were operated until midnight to night an the following lines?: Laclede avenue. Market street, Olive street, Washington avenue, Compton Heights and Park avenue. L"p to a late hour no reports of disorders had been received by the board of police.' ' The surveillance of the Police Department was not relaxed in the least as compared with the preced ing days of the strike. If anything their efforts were redoubled in maintaining peace and order; as in some quarters It was feared the lawless element of the community might po'ssibly take measures to even up yesterday's score, when three striking employes were killed and nine persons Injured by the posse. In the same degree the two regiments of the posae were on their mettle. In answer tp a letter directed by Chief of Police Campbell this evening to Mayor Zeigenhein, the following proclamation was Issued by the latter: Whereas. During the pendency of th? present railway strike and the crisis through which the city is now passing, it is of th» utmost importance that all exeit»ment be suppressed snd that no aets of any kind be done which may tend to produce or create excitement In public places, such as the [ assembling of crowds or groups of persons upoii the streets. the discussion of the situation In boisterous language or the discharge of firearms or lire- : works. ( Therefore, I. the undersigned. Mayor of the city of St. Ixmls. by virtue or the power and authority In me vested by law, Jo hereby proclaim and direct that all persons ln the city of St. I^ouls refrain from gathering In '¦ numbers on the public streets or in public [ places: that all persons, particularly women and children, remain Indoors as much as possible until the present situation Is re lieved; that J«>orirs or abusive language or language calculated to provoke a breach of the peace b? not Indulced In.

HENRY 7.HIUENHEIN, Mayor. President Harry B. Hawes of the police board sa»<* to-night mat the Mayors proclamation would be rigidly enforced. JEFFKRSON- CITY. *o.. June" 11.;- Oovernor Siephens to-day gave - out the following statement, which he had wired to the New York World, regarding the St. Louis strike: Rer-lvlng to your telegram, just received. I w 11 say vigorous artlon rms heen taken by the State government and St. Louis Police Depart ment to enforce respect for law In St. Lf>"»s "nil re«rect for property. The Republican Minor however, who is a candidate for renomi natlon' not des-iring to offend, positively re runs to co-onerate with us. which lends en ••ouraeemrnt to the lawless element and lm i.rdes our progrefs toward restoration of normal conditions. The presW-nt of the Board of Po lice Commissioners writes me under date of tne 7th Inst. rs follows: ' "Henry Zelgenhtiii. Mayor of St. Louis, has persistently re'iised to attend the meetings of the Police" Hoard, of which he is a member, or to clve vs assistance of any kind at this criti cal period. His Honor, In spite of sundry re ouests, has persistently refused to assist the board ln any way and it Is the belief that the failure to do fo has worked harm to u» in this crisis. Especially do I deplore the fact, as president of the Police Board, that he re fused to issue the proper proclamation to f Keep the peace' and for t'ie dispersing of mobs. \«i Governor I have conscientiously and fear leibly done my duty as my judgment directed. I have requested that 2'00 urgency policemen be Kworn in and that the Sheriff summon a posse of 2.-.00 able-bodied and law-abiding citi zens to serve under the direction of the Police Commissioner*. It has not been deemed neces sary up to this hour by the commissioners to oroVr out the militia, the commissioners be lieving that they are e.jual to the emergency. There are only spasmodic outbreaks, which the police and deputy sheriffs have been able to manage. The stripping of the women to which you refer was done'ny three KlrU between the aees of 14 and 16. A saloon-keeper was also arrested on B uspiclon of belns implicated. It was not thousht best to order out the militia to Khoot them. The Eirls have been tried and sentenced to terms in the Industrial homes for girls. Most of <he newspapers In St. Louis endeavor to stand In with the lawless element as wp!1 aa with the better element and think it popular to withhold support from State officers and constantly criticise any act of the police au thorities. A similar strike upon the street railways was ordered in Kansas City about the same time the ft Louis strike was ordered, but proved n failure' because the Mayor, the newspapers and the Sheriff all co-operated with the Police De partment. . We have, four regiments in Missouri, consist ing altnsether of about 2J00 men. The first regiment, with two hours' notice, will be ready for duty. The other three regiments can be mobilized In St. Louis within ten hours. Camp injr sites have been selected in the city and details all arranged and an soon as I am in formed by the proper authorities that a tumult existR in the citv and that a condition of law 1<tfi>p!-s and disorder prevails with which the civil authorities are unable to cope, then the National Guard will ne called out to preserve order ami prevent further disorder and acts of violence without delay. Conditions are indeed bad »nou;rV>. but ex aggerated reports' have reached the Ka«t. I feel the worst Is over. It was <*."»monstrat<»<l in St. Louis when four or five strikers were nhpt and killed that our authorities mean busi ness. I believe that law and ordT will soin bp restored and the good name of St. LouU and the State will be preserved. Ninety per cent of the rood people indorse my action since th-* strike was declared and oppose the calling out of the militia until St. Louis admits, even with her police force and unlimited number of dep uty sherlffE. she cannot at this time take care Governor Stephens Scores Mayor Zei g-enheim, Who, He Says, Is Neglecting His Duty for Political Purposes.
