Bat No Fears of an Epidemic Another
Platue Vessel Arrives From
Ths New York City Board of Health offic
ially announced Wednesday afternoon five
deaths from Asiatic cholera in that city,
as follows:
CHARLES McEVOY, died September 6,
at 870 Tenth avenue.
MRS. SOPHIA WIOMAN. died September
10, at 68 Eleventh avenue.
WILLIAM WIGMAN. husband of Sophia
died at the same sddrest ths following
MINNIE LF.VINGER, achild.died Septem-
ler U, st 411 East Forty-sixth street.
CAI1I.OTTA BECK, aged 30, died Sept.
12 at Second avenue.
McEvoyls the man whose death from
cholera was announced, September 8, but
afterward denied.
All these cases were originally reported to
the Health Department as suspected cholera,
and have been under the investigation of
the physicians connected with the depart
ment. Prof. Herman Kiggs, who is In
charge ot the Division of Pathology and
Bacteriology of the Health Department,
has been at work making bacteriological ex
amiuation nf the intestinal fluids taken
from the bodies of the suspected caes.
Prof. Biggs reported to the Health De
partment the re'sult of the examination,
and announced unbe-itatingly that the
cases were Asiastic cholera beyond any
On being Informed that there was
cholera in New York Citv, Dr. Jenkins ex
pressed great surprise, lie says that it has

tine. . ax reioFMic not rrAnrn.
Medical Commissioner of the Heath Board
Dr. Bryant said: "I d i not ttiiri sr. the dis
ease will become epidemic." This he says,
is almost assured from the fact that no
suspicions cases have occurred since yester
day. "There seems to b but little danger,"
said Dr. liyrant. "so far. and tho publio
need not be alarmed. Every precaution has
been taken by the Hoard of Health to com
bat and crush the disease wherever it may
Dr. Edson, of the Bureau of Contagious
Diseases, was alo of the opinion that there
will be no cholera epidemic in New York.
"I think Its spread will be le.-s than the
typhus fever," said he. "As to where the
cholera came from, that is the question that
we are trying to solve. It is in the city and
it must Fiave come from some outside
source. It must have raised some quaran
tine. I think that before 24 hours we will
have run clown the direction from which
the disease came. There may be cases of
sporadic cholera in the city, but I think ths
disease will he speedily overcome."
The Chamber reported that Treasurer J.
Pierpont Morgan had secured I'.fi.i'iO in
subscriptions to the quarantine emergency
At Washington, Surgeon General Wyman,
In speaking of the outbreak of cholera in
New York City, which resulted in five
deaths, said that he was not at all surprised
that the disease had gotten into New York
City, but he does not feel arlarmed over the
situation, as the cases were scattered and
there was no indication of its spreading.
In the fleet at quarantine are the liners
La Champange. Alaska, Aller, Belgianland,
Maasdam and the Didnm. it is hoped to
find all well on the first three, and to send
them up the bay. The freighter Alnltl.from
Hamburg, will be detained several davs for
observation as will also the Italian Plata,
from Naples with immigrants, one of the
morning's newcomers. A transfer steamer
has been ordered down to take the cabin
passengers o. La Champagne to the city.
The steamer will be detained at quarantine.
The North German Lloyd steamer Aller,
which arrived in quarantine Monday, was
released and proceeded lo her pier.
At Hamburg there have been o!8 fresh
cases Thursday, -ti more than the preced
ing day, 2ml deaths, three more than the
clay belore. Ml burials, 18 more than the
day before. In the cholera hospitals and
barracks ihe number of patients has fallen
to l.Hofi. the lowest number of the last 16
days. Two-thirdsof the patients are women
and children. Tho men now stricken, the
rihysicians say, are those who have had tit
le constitution to resist the disease. Many
of them have been hard drinkers and others
have been weakened by privation so as to
become easily infected. Among people of
normal health and habits the plague is be
lieved to be at an end.
The municipal staff of physicians are now
more than adequate, principally because
nearly all cases are treated at hospitals. Fif
teen army surgeons, who have worked at
Hamburg for Ihe last two weeks, left for
their gariisons, and more are expected to
leave. The fugitives continue to return,
and scores of shops, which had been closed,
have begun advertising for trade.
I.tASKD. The r.iajority of the passengers of ths
Normsnnla embarked on the Cephens Frl
day morning for New York, and started
from Fire Island at 8:40 o'clock. The steam

and remained there until the afternoon,
when the boat was floated, and the passen
gers landed sufejy at the Hamburg line
pier in Hohoken. About 100 of Ihe passen
gers csme by rail, having landed at Baby
lon. Part of the passengers arrived at Long
Island City by train from Babylon and pro
ceded at once to their homes.
There was much relief at Quarantine
when the Bohemia, ths last immigrant
ship coming from Hamburg, reported only
11 deaths aboard during the voyage. Her
surgeon attributes ihem to inflammation of
the stomach and bowels, but Dr. W'alser,
who insiected the ship, relieves that the
disei'e was unquestionably cho era. Four
oft lie passengers were removed as patients
to Swinburne Uland by Dr. Byron.
The Bohemia sailed from Hamburg on
Seplember3 with ten cabin, IM4 steerage
passengers and a crew of 72 men. That day
Sarah Dietzler. 2A years old, became tl!
She died after 3 duys' illness. On tha 4th
her child was taken 111 and died on Thurs
day, the last day that the ship was out.
All the patients died after an Illness of
from one lo five days. All but two of them
were children under 8 years. Of the four
patients removed to Swinburne Island one
of them was stricken on Wednesday, two
on Thursday and one Friday morning be
fore Dr. Byron visited the steamship.
Thirty-seven of the sick recovered at sea.
Dr. W raiser was Informed by the Bohemia's
surgeon tiiat the ship, like the Scandia, had
been disinfected abroad with carbolic, acid.
Dr. Walser said that he had no confidence
in the efficacy of carbolic acid to destroy
cholera germs. Ths cabin passengers on
ths Bohemia are Frits Trott, Frederick
Krennecke, Mrs. Bertha Krennecke, Charles
Hartung. Mrs. Horten Hess and family,
Samuel Bernhardt and son.
