SUSPECTS WILL BE BARRED - Suspects W;II No Longer Be Includ ed in the Yellow Fever Reports. New Orleans, Oct. 17.-Report at 6 p. m. yesterday: New cases, 15. Total cases to date, 3,329. Deaths, 3. Total deaths to date, 434. New Foci, 4. Cases under treatment, 139. Cases discharged, 2,756. Believing that yellow fever in New Orleans is now absolutely under con t trol and that there is no longer any I reason to fear a further spread of the disease, Dr. White, representing the Marine Hospital Service, considers i that hereafter the inclusion of cases other than .yellow fever in the official record ought to be avoided for the sake of the truth of the records. At the same time he believes that not a single actual case should be suppress ed. Accordingly, Dr. White has writ ten the following letter to President Leboeuf of the Orleans Medical Soci -ety: "My Dear Doctor: I would be very glad if you will make a request of the society to do something which I be lieve to be now necessary in order that the city may get even handed justice from the outside, and that is, that all physicians having any doubts in their mind about the diagnosis of cases of fever be requested to call upon some member of the board of experts, the diagnosis of which board, or any mem ber thereof, will be unqualifiedly ac cepted by this office, and in this man ner provide in each case an exact di agnosis, so that hereafter the number of cases may be neither more nor less than the exact number occurring in the city. We don't wish to either in crease or decrease the showing in any manner not in absolute accord with the facts, but feel that now we have reached the period when the question of suspicious cases may be done away with." The committee of the medical socie ty has cordially endorsed the sugges tion of Dr. White, which has been made in view of the rapid decline of 1 the number of cases during tae past two weeks. The record of cases yesterday was again a low one, and that of deaths gave general satisfaction to the au thorities. The fact that only eight e new cases were reported on Sunday gave reason to expect a much larger t quota yesterday, but the report turn ed out to be in harmony with the low figures of the past week. d No news came yesterday of the rais ing of more quarantines than those already announced. a Millions for Japan. New York: Kuhn, Loeb & Co., bank. ors, have paid the balance due the Japanese government on the loan float ed last July. The full amount borrow ea by the Japanese government was $150,000,000, of which one-third was issued in the United States. There have been already two calls for pay ment of 5 per cent of the subscriptions. This would have left about $30,000,000 to be paid up to date, but a large num. ber of the subscribers had paid all their subscriptions at the first call, so that the actual sum transferred to the Japanese government Monday was $17,000,000. In Westminster Abbey. London: The Dean of Westminster, Very Rev. Jos.

It It Is Believed He Realizes His Condi e tion is Cr, :cal, Although He Did Not Saturday. Fort Worth, Texas, Oct. 18.--Gov. Hogg's condition was stated last night to be extremely critical. This is the epinion given by the attending physi "ians. They even go further and say I that tne distinguished Texan may i pass away at any moment. It is be lieved that the'former governor him self now realizes that his condition borders on the fatal and that he has made up his mind to fight death as vigorously and vehemently as he has championed the questions of public s importance to his native state. There is a pathetic and sad side to the governor's illness, in that while it was evident that he was a very sick man last Saturday night, when he reached this city on his way from Lampasas to Mineral Wells, he could not make himself believe that his ill ness would reach the fatal stage of yesterday. He talked in quite a dif ferent strain Monday night and yes terday morning to warm' friends who were admitted to his room than he did last Sunday, the last day he was permitted to see whomsoever he pleased. Sunlay afternoon he was cheerful. Saturaay night when he reached the city he was exhausted from the trip fromn Lampasas, and there was every indication then that he was far from a well man. But it is believed now that the governor felt that the trip had tired him more than he thought "t would, and he attributed his depression to this rather than than the belief that he was in imnmi nent danger. For several nights the governor had had but little sleep, probably two hours or less each night, and this had worried him considerably. The governor's friends here do not believe that he could have realized that he is as seriously ill a man as he is, because he held out to the last that he did not think it was necessary to enter the abdominal cavity and draw water, which the dotcors told him would, if not removed, gradually 1 reach the vitals, with its consequent fatal results. With the skin in its present inflam ed condition the' question for deter mination is, would it be safe to In- t troduce any sort of an instrument into i the patient's abdomen. On the other hand, a delay now is regarded as ex tremely dangerous to the patient, the t fear being that unless the water is a drawn from the abdominal cavity that I it may continue to press its destroy- f ing way to vital points. A prominent doctor concludes that a the governor's case is one of cardiac dropsy. Shot His Stepfather. J Rosebud, Texas: About 8 o'clock [ Monday night Mr. T. J. Hill was shot j through the stomach or bowels at his home on Mr. J. T. Twyman's 'place, e three miles north of town, and died a at 3 o'clock next morning. The offi- b cers were called out and met Oscar b Wakefield coming to town, who sun- a rendered to Constable Averftt, saying he did the shooting. Wakefield L~ a e stepson of Hill, and says he had been o sent for by his mother to come down a to her house, where it seems she and IJ her husband were having some trou ble. Attempted Assault. Houston, Texas: J. Herbert, a white man, has been convicted in the Criminal District Court and given a sentence of two years in the peni tentiary by the jury on a charge of as sault, the object of his attempt being a tenyear-old negro girl. Herbert, alias J. Purney, is a stove repairer, and is charged with having made the attempted assault while pursuing his calling in the suburbs. Energetic Action. London: The British Foreign Of fice has sent instructions to its minis ter at Morocco to take the most ener getic action in regard o the capture of two officers of the Royal Marines by Anjeras.

RICH QGOLD FIELDS IN NEVADIA. Flattering Account of Country Giveu By United States Senator. George S. Nixon, the successor of William M. Stewart in the United States Senate from Nevada, has Just returned from the Goldfleld country and gives a very flattering account of conditions there. "In Tonopah there has been opened i _ ~t4 - SEVADA up at the present time an area over a mile long and half a mile wide," said Mr. Nixon, "with enormous paral. lel ledges of large size and good val ues. The values will run from $25 up into the thousands. Extensive Work is being carried on by the owners of many other properties surrounding the ones I have mentioned, and it does not seem unreasonable to predict that many of them will be as fortunate as those now paying dividends." TRAFFIC IN WOMEN. Americans Lured to China Under Ly- I ing Prom:ses and Sold to Chinamen. Chicago, Ill.: Traffic in young American women purchased in Chica. I go for sale in China has been discov- I ered by local Federal,-and police au thorities, but thus far no law has been found prohibiting the exporting l of American women to foreign coun tries. The police are in possession of the names of two women, one in Chicago i and another in Shanghai, who are be- a lieved to be leaders in the practice. [ The plan used in the operation of the alleged ring was, it is believed, to a hire unsuspecting women, tempt ing them with lurid stories of wealth i' in the Orient. A position of maid or high servant in wealthy Chinese fahm ilies is said to have been the bait of- t fered. a To .bind the contract the "applicant b for the position was told that her n traveling and living expenses would be n paid and all the clothing necessary furnished. When the women reached Chicago N they were immediately placed under tl guard and sent to the purchasers, who had previously paid from $500 to $1,000 , for each. Many are supposed to be t held in palaces of wealthy Chinese di under heavy guard. i, A' Bryan is. Entertained.

Aswell, state superintendent of education, will urge, at the coming session of the I state board of education, the issuance i of a proclamation by that board nam ing an arbor day for Louisiana, to be I celebrated by the school children of the state by the planting of trees. The date for arbor day will be set for some time in February, which is the beat month for the planting of trees in Louisiana. The establishment of a bird day will also be among the m'at ters considered by the state board of education, the idea being to instill in to the minds of the youth of the state, by literary exercises in the public schools, a love for birds and a respect for laws enacted for their preserva tion. The following letter was sent out on Saturday, by the state superintendent of education to the parish superintend. ents throughout Louisiana: "Kindly make careful investigation and write me within ten days stating whether the publishers have on sale in your parish, wherever needed, the adopted text books in sufficient quan tities to supply all your schools in a satisfaectory manner. This informa tion is greatly needed, so. that I may convey the same to the state board of education."
