There are over 100 of them in the hos pitals at Harrisburg, Pottsville, Beading and other cities, but four of them are seriously ill with the disease. Colonel Gordon has received the ap pointment as major of the battalion that will do garrison duty and as soon as the present eight companies are mustered out he will assume his new command. His appointment threatens to disrupt the military of the State. It is reported that 95 per cent, of the officers of the, Delaware regiment are incensed at Governor Tunnell's action in giving that appointment to a resident of Louisiana when several applicants with fine mili tary careers and who have been identi fied with the military of the state, were anxious to be appointed. Little can be said by the matter at present for fear of court-martial but the Btorm will likely burst in all of its fury after the general discharge at the end of thirty days. del to On of of at to to to no at in re the to at in to can to LARGE MEETING HELD.

Hay wood, Another Accused, Ar rested In Nebraska—Dis trict Attorney Gra ham Talks. Special Dispatch to The Sun. Philadelphia, Oct. 3. —United States Senator Matthew Stanley Quay and his son Richard E. Quay were todav charged with conspiracy to unlawfully use s Bank, of this $5,000 bail to moneys of the People' city, and placed under await q hearing next Thursday. it which preferred the charge against Senator Quay and his son also accused ex-State Treasurer Benjamin J. Haywood and Charles H. McKee be fore Magistrate Jcrmon and warrants were likewise issued for their arrest. The affidavit alleges against the per sons named therein that they conspired with other person or persons unknown to the deponent to unlawfully use the state funds deposited in the People's Bank, of this city, and also conspired with the late John S. Hopkins caBhier, to speculate in stocks and unlawfully use moneys deposited in the bank. The affidavit on which the warrants were issued was sworn to by Charles F. Myers, a detective connected with the United States District Attorney's office. In his affidavit Mr. Myers deposes "that Matthew Stanley Quay, Benjamin J. Haywood, Richard R. Quay and Charles H. McKee and other persons to this de ponent unknown, did unlawfully com bine, confederate, conspire and agree to and with eacli other and the said per sons unknown to use the public moneys of tlie Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for their own use, and also did combine, confederate, conspire and agree to and with eacli other and divers persons to this deponent unknow n, and to and with John S. Hopkins, deceased, formerly cashier of the People's Bank of Philadel phia, a cororation duly created and ex isting under the laws of tlie Common wealth of Pennsylvania, to unlawfully loan public moneys and to unlawfully buy and sell stocks, that is, shares of Btock, in divers corporations, and did unlawfully use and employ the moneys of the People's Bank, within the county of Philadelphia and within two years last past." On the strength of this affidavit the warrants were sworn out and shortly after 2 o'clock Senator Quay accompan ied by his son, Richard, and A. S. L. Shields, their counsel, appeared before Magistrate Jermon. After a short con ference Senator Quay and his soil were placed ander $5,000 "bail for a hearing next Thursday at noon. David H. Lane furnished the security. Pinkerton detectives located Mr. Hay wood in Omaha, Nebraska, and he w as arrested and locked up there toi ight. He stated that lie wished to trinsait some important business and desi ed to remain in that city three days linger. At the end of that time lie said he wo lid be willing to be brought east. Charles H. McKee, named in tlie affi davit, is the law partner of Walter R. Lyon, Lieutenant-Governor of the State and a leading Pittsburg lawyer, having an office in the Park Building, at Fifth avenue and Smithfield street in that city. He is prominently identified with the Quay faction in ftepu blican State politics. Charles II. McKee is somewhere in Montana, but as yet lias not been appre hended. It appears that Haywood and McKee were traveling in company in the west. In speaking of the arrest of Senator Quay and his son Richard R. and tlie issuance of wai rants for Mr. Haywood and Mr. McKee, District Attorney George S. Graham said this afternoon: "I want it distinctly understood," said Mr. Graham, "that I did not learn of the basis of the charges until F'riday last, and on Saturday I caused the warrants to be issued. I concluded that it was pretty near time that certain state rot tenness was exposed, and while 1 do not at tlie present time want to express any opinion on the case, I feel confident that we will be able to more than prove our case when it is called." Mr. Graham said that he had nothing further to offer. He said that his action in this matter was based entirely upon information received on Friday evening and placed in the form of an affidavit on Saturday before Magistrate Jermon. "As far as this case is concerned I wish to say," said Mr. Graham, "that I will push it to a complete finish. I want to leave the office with the thorough con scientiousness that have I performed my duty in every line of the service that lias engaged my attention. This case you can rely will be pushed to a trial." Senator Quay was seen late this after noon and questioned concerning the charges preferred against himself, his son, ex-State Treasurer Haywood and others and the warrnnts which have been issued for them, but lie had little to say. "I am here to permit service of any warrant that may be out for me," he said with a slight smile, "and to make answer to any charges that may be pre ferred. More than that, I have nothing to say about the matter." Senator Quay and his son went to At lantic City tonight and will remain there until tomorrow or Wednesday. ame a the of the A the tlie the lieve Typhoid at Camp Meade. The Two-hundred-and-third New York regiment of volunteer soldiers was moved from Camp Aleade to Chattanooga last Sunday.

TREMENDOUS SENSATIONS ARE PROMISED. is Rumors Indicate u Clean Sweep in Philadelphia as a Sequence oP (Quay's Arrest. 8iieclal Dlsuatch to The Sun. Philadelphia, Oct. 3. —There are sev eral sensational rumors current here to night—all growing out of the arrest of Hon. M. S. Quay. One story has it that Quay will resign his seat in the United States Senate forthwith and make his fight for re-election as a private citizen. Another is that Gideon D. Marsh, the fugitive president of the defunct Key stone National Bank, will appear in the United States Court at an early date and make it decidedly interesting for some of the more peteut enemies of Mr. Quay. Still another story assures us that Quay will withdraw his candidacy for re-elec tion upon reaching an agreement with Dave Martin and Chris Magee whereby he (Quay) may be allowed to name his successor in office. Each of these rumors lias some ground for credence. There is an unwritten page in the history of the Keystone Na tional Sank that can be opened by a word from Senator Quay. Nobody can recall a time when Mr. Quay neglected an opportunity such as this and it is a moral certainty that he will provide a counter sensation at an early day. The reappearance of "Gid" Marsh in Philadelphia, would cause a stampede of local politicians from that city. With the incorruptible James M. Beck in the offico of United States District Attorney there would be no suppression of evi dence and no man can tell where it would end. Pennsylvania is on the eve of a scandal that will smell to Heaven. to F. J. to to MRS. HARRY J. STOECKLE DEAD. Wife of tlie Well-known Brewer of This City Dies at Her Home. Mrs. Harry J.

NECKLACE OF INDIAN TEETH Walking on a Wager the Man Will Encircle the Earth-Walked From Chester to Wilming ton in Three Hours Forty Minutes. "Dakota Bob," the Globe trotter, ar : rived in this city yesterday. Walking around the World for fame and encour aged by the New York Journal, Dakota Bob is in this city, after having had many experiences. He is not a fake but pays as he goes and is an intelligent talker and an ex perienced scout, having received his name from Buffalo Biil. He wears a sombrero and a cartridge belt. His hair is long and he lias a neck lace made of Sioux Indian teeth and in the centre of it has a stone totem of the Sioux Indians. Dakota Bob is a walker of no small re putation as the many clippings of daily papers from various parts of the country testify. He walked from Chicago in 1892 dur ing the World's Fair, to New Orleans and back before the exposition closed. Since that time he lias walked 26,306 miles. His latest feat was that of break ing his own record and walking from San F'rancisco to New York, a distance of 3,385 miles, in six months and fifteen days. He looks as hard as a nut and is as congenial as moonshine. He claims to have seen life on the frontier and tells thrilling stories of the doings in the Indian country. The walking scout left Chester yester day at 2 o'clock p. m. and arrived in this city at 5.40 last evening. He is a man slightly below the average height, strongly built, smooth shaven face. His hair, which lie wears long, is black and serves as a frame to bis face. His clothing consists of a broad brimmed sombrero, red, white and blue sweater and pantaloons of plain but sturdy material, supported by a cartridge belt. Ho carries with him a bag, supported by a strap over his shoulder, in whicli lie carries his scrap of of of of lie wears a books and other curios. In hia scrap books, eighteen of which he carries with him, lie lias a complete j record of his travels in autograph. Every city lie goes into lie secures the seal of the city, signature of the postmaster and stops at some newspaper office, where he also secures signatures as additional proof of liis travels. Tlie curio which lie carries with him is a necklace com posed of 120 Iudian teeth which he re moved from the jaw bones of dead In dians himself. It is a grusome ornament but Dakota Bob is proud of it. The walk upon which he is at the pres ent time, is being taken upon a wager made between Billy Lee, of Yonkers, New York, and Joseph Mills, of San Francisco, for $3,000 that lie will not be able to make it by July 1, 1899. If he succeeds lie gets $1,800. Tlie route lie will follow is Atlanta, Ga.; Tallahassa, Fla.; Mobile, Ala.; New Orleans, La.; San Antonio, Tex.; El Faso through New Mexico, Arizona and then to 'Frisco. He spent yesterday at the Merritt House and today lie will spend with "Andy" Alurphy witli whom lie was ac quainted before coming to Wilmington. On Wednesday afternoon Dakota Bob will leave this city for Baltimore and will start from The Sun office. a P. lie the so of the ing on THE BERMUDA COMING. Famous Filibustering Steamer Ex pected In the Capes Today. The famous filibustering steamer Ber muda, a sister ship to theLaurada which lay in this city so "long, is expected to enter the Delaware Capes today. The Bermuda comes from Jamaica, bound to Philadelpthia. Her movements have been suggestive to tlie authorities and though sne is listed as a fruiter, she is still a mvstery to the officials. Only recently did Captain John D. Hart, her owner, secure her release from the British government by whom she had been seized pending an investiga tion of her frequent trips to tlie island of Jamaica without the slightest possibility of being able to get any trade on that island.
