MAUFFRAY. SURGEON GENERAL VVYHAN ON QUARANTINES, In a special dispatch by the Wash ington correspondent of the Times-Dem ocrat, Surgeon General Wyman, of the United States Marine Hospital Service, strongly deprecates the idea ot freight quarantines and emphatically declares that not only is great injustice done thereby, but totally unnecessary harm. Surgeon Wyman lays stress upon “un necessary” harm, for he reiterates, nei ther freight, household goods, or mer chandise of any description can carry infection, which he repeats is carried solely, only and exclusively by the in fected stegomyia faciata mosquito. “Freight of itself does not carry the infection of yellow fever,” said Dr. Wy man. “It may safely be received any where. The infection comes from in fected mosquitoes. But as an extreme precaution and to satisfy the doubts of those who still are skeptical, freight cars are now being disinfected by the Marine Hospital Service. Even this is of doubtful necessity, but it is being done to give full assurance. There is absolutely no [instance that I know of where yellow fever has been traced to freight. “The fact of the matter is, if the in habitants of those towns which have set up freight quarantines would spend the time and money thus wasted, in keeping close watch on suspicious cases of fever, in screening houses and cisterns and ex terminating the stegomyia faciata and all mosquitoes for that matter, they would be doing themselves more good and oth ers far less harm. “It is gratifying to note, however, that the people as a whole have accepted the mosquito doctrine, and I daily re ceive assurance to this end. The ablest scientists of the world have made deep, exhaustive and complete tests, and there is yet to be one instance recorded where yellow fever has been transmitted by any means other than the infected ste gomyia faciata. To the people of the South, who are so sorely afflicted and with whom we all deeply sympathize, I say, abandon your useless freight quar antines; it is a waste of time, money and energy. Concentrate that energy on the extermination of mosquitoes, and you have the solution of your problem in your own hands.” In line with Dr. Wyman’s assertions, Surgeon J. H. White, in charge for the United States Government of the New Orleans yellow fever situation, says he is having every freight car that leaves New Orleans thoroughly fumigated, in order that all mosquitoes may be killed, and that such cars carry an official seal to that effect. Lighthouse-Keeper For Twenty-Five Years Succumbs at Pascagoula. Pascagoula, Miss., Sept. 19. —Capt. John Murray, for over a quarter of a century in the gulf lighthouse service, serving as keeper of Round Island and Pascagoula river stations, died this morning, after a lingering illness, at his headquarters at the Pascagoula river lighthouse. Captain Murray was 62 years old and 8 native of Mobile, Ala. He was known personally to every mariner touching the Mississippi Sound. He is survived by five children. Atlanta can receive no more yellow fever refugees from New Orleans or any other infected point. The Atlanta Board and the Georgia Board did not happen to agree upon the subject of no quarantine, and the matter was taken to the courts, a decision being reached in favor of the State. ife So tost id#. v v y j New Orleans Picayune: On the thir tieth of the present month the battleship Mississippi, named after our neighbor ing State, will take her initial dip into the element upon which she will proudly float the national flag for years to come. The great ship resembles in many re spects the battleship Louisiana, now rapidly nearing completion at the New port News ship yard, but owing to a necessary concession to certain senators the tonnage of the Mississippi will be somewhat less than that of the battle ships which have been authorized in re cent years, both before and since her date. She will, for instance, have a displacement of 13,000 tons, instead of the 16,000 of the Louisiana, Connecticut and other vessels of their classes. A verdict of SIOO,OOO against the city of Chicago was given the Panhandle railroad Tuesday in a damage suit brought because of the burning of a number of freight ears belonging to the railroad company during the A. R. U. strike of 1901. A motion made by the city to set the verdict aside was denied by the court. In the trial the railroad company held that the city of Chicago was liable for damages because of its alleged inadequate protection to the company’s property. Archbishop John Glennon, head of the Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis, who has been abroad for two months, returned home, bringing with him plans for the erection of a $1,000,000 cathedral. He visited architects in Paris and Ber lin for tne purpose, and states that the proposed St. Louis cathedral will be the most imposing in the country. To grow extra large pumpkins or squashes try the plan of letting only one or two of the thriftiest plants grow in the hill. Allow only one specimen to grow on each vine, and use old manure water on the hills. Hoe often. That is about all that can now be done.

ZACHARY AND JOHN DY MOND IN WASHINGTON LOOK ING UP AUTHORITIES IN NA TIONAL LIBRARY. Washington, D. C., September 19. — Colonel F. C. Zachary, of New Orleans, associate counsel in the Louisiana-Mis sissippi boundary case, which is to be heard in the United States Supreme Court October 16, has arrived in Wash ington. Tomorrow he will be joined by Attorney John Dymond, and together they will prepare the Louisiana brief. Each of these attorneys—Col. Zachary in Toronto and Mr. Dymond in New’ Orleans—has been hard at work inves tigating and collecting authorities in support of their contention that the boundary line between the two States should follow the deepest channel, and with the Supreme Court law library open to them and the State Department ready to lend assistance, the prepara tion of their brief will not be tedious. “I have been away from New Orleans for several months,’’ said Col. Zachary this evening, “on account of ill health, but I am now greatly improved and can give this important case my whole at tention. I had an attack of appendici tis last spring, and as soon as I was able to travel I went to a place called Orillia, Canada, forty miles from Toronto, on the advice of my physician. There I found very agreeable company and good living, and my strength is gradually re turning. “Toronto has a splendid law’ library, and there I was enabled to find a great deal of material that I wanted for the boundary case. There is difficulty, however, in getting some of the data from foreign governments tftat we would like to have, owing to a general inclina tion in Europe to give out certain deci sions upon which other decisions have been based. However, we have tried to get some of this through the State de partment.” THE SWEETHEART. Flagship of the Bay-Waveland Yacht Club. The Sweetheart, the magnificent power yacht purchased by Mr. L. H. Fairchild, Commodore of the Bay - Waveland Yacht Club, in Philadelphia and anchored in Bayou St. John Sun day, attracted considerable attention among the yachtsmen yesterday. The Sweetheart is one of the largest and handsomest vessels in the Southern Yacht Club’s fleet and will make a most valuable addition to the number of ves sels on the coast during the next yacht ing season. In selecting the Sweetheart Commo dore Fairchild picked out a boat from a big fleet which would be particularly adapted to the extreme southern waters- She draws hardly anything for a vessel of her size, is big and comfortable in her cabin and is supplied wiih a vast amount of open space on top of her cabin, where, under a big awning in the summer time, a large number of persons can be cool and comfortable. The interior finishings of the Sweet heart are of the most expensive and use ful type. Every possible space has been utilized and put to the very best use possible. Commodore Fairchild has arranged to have the Sweetheart hauled out in the next day or two in Bay St. John. She has been out in the open sea a long time and her bottom has become foul. She will be painted and put in trim ship shape condition and will then run around to West End and pay her respects to the remainder of the fleet. The Sweetheart is the second fine power vessel to be added to the fleet this season. Rear Commodore Jahncke not many weeks ago put in commission a magnificent vessel, 75 feet in length, which, of her type, is one of the finest vessels in these waters. Unlike the Sweetheart, which has a clean-cut clip per bow and long overhanging stern, the Jahncke vessel is built sharp bow and stem, with lines very much after the type of a man-of-war's whaleboat. A few years ago there were hardly any big power yachts in the South. Now there are no end of handsome ves sels, and the Sweetheart in her finish ings is one of the most expensive and modem of the entire number. N. O. Picayune. That was a mean trick played off on guards while they were guarding a house having a case of yellow fever in it. The patient was a boy, and it is the natural disposition of the coast boy to fish, sick or well, dead or alive. One day, while the guards had the house pretty well surrounded, as they supposed, the pa tient slipped out the back way and went fishing. When he returned he attempted to enter the house, but the guards stopped him, telling him there was a case of yellow fever in the house. When the boy told them that he was that case they turned a dark-green color and told him they would have to let him in with out a health certificate that time, but would not do so again.—Gulfport News, Fifty per cent of what is termed “hard luck” is simply a blend of laziness and poor judgment, THE fiULF COAST TRACTION COMPANY WILL ISSUE BONDS TO AMOUNT OF 51,000,000 JUDGE NEVILLE AND W. A. WHITE AT WASH INGTON. Washington, D. C., Sept. 18.—Judge James H. Neville, of Gulfport, Miss., and Hon. W. A. White, of Biloxi, Miss., are at the Shoreham, en route home from Sistersyille, W. Va., where they attended a meeting of the stockholders of the Gulfport and Mississippi Coast Traction Company. The meeting was held in that place instead of Gulfport, the corporation’s domicile, because of the quarantine restrictions and the fact that a large number of the stockholders reside in West Virginia. “Our meeting,” said Judge Neville, “was harmonious in every way, and the sentiment was unanimous that our road should be completed as soon as possible. The line will connect Biloxi, in Harri son county, Miss., with Pass Christian by trolley, a distance of twenty-two miles, and considerable grading has already been done. At the meeting a bond issue of $1,000,000 was authorized, and the purchase of the Biloxi electric road and the one at Gulfport consum mated. “This enterprise shows that the peo ple of Mississippi are not allowing the yellow fever scare to retard their mate rial development. The line in question, by uniting two of our growing and thrifty towns of the coast, will add greatly to the values in that section of the State.” Negro Resists Arrest and is Killed. Yesterday evening Will Adams, a desperate negro criminal, was shot and killed by Deputy Sheriff J. A. H. Smith and Joe Fomea at Derby while resisting arrest. Adams was wanted here for burglary and had made the threat that he would not be arrested. Sheriff Scott learned that he had gone in the direction of Derby and telephoned to Mr. Smith, who happened to be there on official business, to look out for the negro and arrest him. Mr. Smith depu tized Fornea to assist him, and when the negro showed up they commanded him to surrender, but, instead of doing so, the negro went for his guns, at the same time retreating behind a railroad embankment, when the officers opened fire, killing him instantly. In his pos session were found a number of stolen articles, two pistols and oyer a hundred cartridges. Had the officers not acted quickly, they would doubtless have sac rificed their lives at the hands of the black “walking arsenal”. —Poplarville (Miss.) Free Press. Barriers Blown Away. Jackson county’s quarantine against Biloxi was raised at 6 o’clock this (Tues day) morning, and the current of unob structed American liberty flows freely once again. From the first the quarantine was nothing more than a “combination in restraint of trade”, and was therefore illegal, in principle. It deterred turpentine operatives from Jackson county in the pursuit of happi ness. There is no happiness in that Ocean Springs liquor—and it kept the duck hunters of Biloxi away from Point Aux Chene and Davis’ Bayou. It kept Biloxi shrimpers from going east and the fishermen from going to Koshtaw creek for green trout. Now all this is ended, and the currents of trade and the pnrsuit of piscatorial and boozatonal joy will now be unin terrupted for a season—many years we hope. If Mobile will now follow Jackson county’s example, the people of Biloxi can get a little fresh country air and sunshine without waiting for the quar antine against New Orleans to loosen up. It is about time for all of the civilized communities to relax any senseless quarantines they may have about them; every quarantine measure should be measured up by a standard of ordinary horse sense, and if it does not prove to be a reasouable safeguard, it should be cut away. Freight quarantines, quarantines against non-infected cities or districts, unreasonable periods of detention and such rubbish should be shelved with other relics of barbarism—“hung up for monuments”. —Biloxi Herald, Rain-in-the-Face, one of the leading chiefs in the Custer massacre, and who is said personally to have killed General Custer, died at the Standing Rock reser vation Sept. 12, He was 62 years of age. Potatoes should be dug when the vines begin to turn yellow. It is best to dig them early in the morning or late in the evening. Do not let the sun shine on them if you can help it. Handle care fully, put them In a ventilated building, and you will have no trouble in keeping them. A Buffalo judge fined a man $11.20 for stealing a kiss from a girl of that city, which is evidence that they are still charging Pan - American prices there* So don’t let them “put you off”. NEED OF MORE LUMBER FROM THE SOUTH. MIDDLE WEST NEARLY DE PLETED OF ITS TIMBER—WILL LOOK TO PACIFIC AND GULF STATES FOR SUPPLY. Menominee, Mich., Sept. 17.-—“ The lumber for use in the upper lake region will come from the Pacific coast and the South in the not distant future, and all lumber will be higher in price.” This is the assertion of C. G. Forster, of the Forster Lumber Company, in speaking of the steady decadence of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota as sources of timber supply. “As the lumber stocks in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and lowa on Sept 1 were 2,000,000,000 feet short, in com parison with the stocks on the same date a year ago,” said Mr. Forster, “it is not difficult to figure out that the middle West will soon be compelled to turn to new lumber regions for the aver age supplies.” OUR REGULAR LETTER FROM NEW ORLEANS. PEOPLE RETURNING HOME. Increasing crowds on the streets here indicate the steady coming home of New Orleans people, who went away on their summer vacation or who left the city at a time when it seemed probable there would be a very serious epidemic here. Practically all fear of the fever has pass ed and the influx of natives promises to be uninterrupted from this time forward. The heavy amount of freight of all kinds through the streets also points to the fact that quarantines are being lifted and that business is increasing. News of modified quarantines is being receiv ed daily and there is little doubt that i the scare is passing in the country dis tricts and that normal business will be resumed much earlier than was the case in 1897 and 1898. Dr. White’s assurance to the citizens’ committee that all danger will have pass ed before the date set for the President’s arrival and that the party may come to New Orleans and travel over the State without risk shows the confidence en tertained by the federal authorities that henceforth there will be a rapid im provement in conditions. There has been a heavy elimination of foci, many of the new T cases now under treatment being in houses where the fe ver has prevailed for some time. OPENING OF THEATRES. How anxious the people have been for amusements is shown in the experience of the two theatres here which have finally opened their doors. Both have stock companies and are therefore un concerned with the quarantines. The Grand opened Saturday night with every seat sold and all the standing space oc cupied. There was an audience equally as large Sunday matinee and again on Sunday night. The Lyric opened Mon day with matinee and night perform ances. There was a jam at both per formances, and people were again turned away at a matinee the next day. The Orpheum, which is owned by the Orpheum circuit, has finally scheduled its opening for October 2, arrangemen ts having been made to carry its troupes west after they appear here. The Tu lane and Crescent play traveling com panies which usually go from here to the Texas circuit or to the circuit east of the Mississippi have made no an nouncement of their opening. * * ITALIANS NOW CO-OPERATING. Local Italians are co-operating with the Marine Hospital authorities and the local authorities in the effort to get la bor to the plantations. Annually hun dreds of Italians leave here to work in the harvest fields of the West, return ing in time to assist in taking off the cane and other crops. Efforts are being made to route many of these into the sugar district without their entering zones of infection. Engagements have also been made to receive large numbers of Italians from their native country, but their arrival here was deferred when the fever broke out. Now the local Italians are trying to arrange for screened cars to take the immigrants into detention camps when they arrive, so that they may be forwarded to the plantations. Aside ftom the heavy de mand during the crop season, the Loui siana plantations are constantly seek ing additional labor for practically the year round, and any prolonged cutting off of the European supply will be dam aging to them.
