YELLOW JACK SHOWS INCREASE
Nine Deaths and Sixty-one New Cases
at New Orleans.
New Orleans, Aug. 22.—Yellow fe
ver report: New cases, 61 deaths,
9 total cases, 1,446 total deaths,
205 new foci, 16 total foci, 322
cases remaining under treatment, 328.
Though there was an increase both
in the number of cases and of fatal
ities, hopefulness continued to per
vade the federal headquarters touch
ing the local yellow fever situation.
Prisoners, court attaches and hang
ers-on at the second criminal court
were thrown into something of a
panic when a genuine case of yellow
fever was discovered in the dock.
The man was found ill among a num
ber of prisoners and the doctor who
was called promptly diagnosed the
case as yellow fever. The screened
ambulance immediately carried the
man to the emergency Hospital. A
flying squad was sent for and the
dock and court room thoroughly disin
fected. The patient was an Italian,
who was arrested on Saturday night.
Tiie jail will therefore be fumigated.
The situation outside of the city is
not so encouraging. Surgeon Guiteras
made an inspection of the Riverside
plantation in St. Mary parish and re
ports 100 cases. At Hanson City eight
cases were reported. Kenner also re
ports four cases.
THREE CASES AT GREGORY,
Italian From South
Gregory, Mo., Aug. 22.—Three cases
of yellow fever have developed here
within the past twenty-four hours.
All are Italians. One victim has died
and the two other cases are said to
be very low. The three infected Ital
ians, with others of the same na
tionality, were brought up the river to
Gregory recently from Greenville,
Miss., and employed at track work
by the Burlington railroad. Monday
one of the men, taken suddenly ill,
was reported dying, and when physi
cians arrived they promptly reported
the patient was suffering from gen
uine yellow fever. He was isolated
promptly, but died within a few
hours. Two more of the Italians
were reported infected with the dis
ease. They were also isolated, as
were the other Italians brought from
Mississippi. Excitement is intense
and much indignation is "expressed
that the Italians were permitted to
slip through the quarantine lines.
