Tg , ff ThreatenedDaHger. jjWK PfeVlOUS tO tUB Upenttlg OT thC TgjW Washington, D. C., Oct. 4. The spread of Asiatic cholera from Russia, where 90,000 cases are reported, into Germany and other countries of Europe, has Mused the government to redouble thp precautions taken at the port of Xew Tork, and has again directed attention to the inadequacy of our national facilities for combatting an assault of cholera or plague. The port doctors are able to exclude any person showing symptoms of t cholera, but the real danger is from j health' Americans, returning from abroad, and irom robust immigrants. who easily pass the quarant.ne, but who may, nevertheless, cany enough cholera germs in their bodies to pollute the rivers of a whole state. ''Excretions during an epidemic or among persons coming from an infected region are dangerous," says Professor Ghantemesse, of the French Academy of -Medicine, in a dispatch regarding the outDreak in Europe. "These excretions contain specific microbes in large quan- I utl?s- -L4SZ may contaminate wells ana springs. Whole rivers may become con taminated in this "way, and when, by any means, this polluted water finds itself in the digestive tube, the cholera microbe finds a new home and multiplies." Congressional Action Likely. The possibility of an act by congress at the next session to give better pro tection against an outbreak of an. epi demic in this county by stopping the pollution of interstate waterways in which excretions are dumped is fore shadowed by the recent remarks of GoJ. Roosevelt in speakiner of putting sewage into the great lakes: ''We claim to be a civilized people, and civilized people ought to know how to dispose of the sewage in some other way than putting it into the drinking wa'ter. We need action 1D3' both the state and the nation to put a complete stop to the pollution of the great lakes, action by the state so far as our own boundary is concerned, and action by the nation, because other states besides our own are' interested.'' Bubonic Plague Also a Menace. Dr. Chas. S. Braddoek, formerly chief medical inspector for the Royal Siamese government at Bangkok, where he had extensive experience fighting cholera, has l said regarding the cholera menace. "When Ave can control the food and water supply and secure reasonable sani tary conditions, wonderful results as to prevention are obtained.3' But Dr. Braddoek further state3: ''In my opinion . we need not fear cholera so much as bubonic plague, since the prevention of the latter disease is far more difficult to attain." According to senator Owen, who intro duced into the senate the national de partment of health bill, one of whose functions shall be the suppression of bubonic plague and similar national menaces, "The most dangerous epidemic known to the world has been the bu bonic plague, a germ disease capabje of almost explosive epidemic. Plague Symptoms. 'After an incubation of from four to seven days with headache, vertigo, and mental depression there comes a chill, a raging fever, great prostration, occa sional vomiting of bile and blood; the glands in the neck, under the arms, at the elbows, in the groins, under the knees, all over the body, become red and swollen, tender, and extremelv painful. They turn dark, become filled with pus. It not opened, burst spontaneously. The disease is sometimes attended with ab scesses, boils, and carbuncles. About this time the agony of life and the sting of death are both overcome by a merci ful unconsciousness, and the mass of human putrid flesh ceases to breathe and the heart is stilled. 'This was the ''black death' "of Lon don, killing about 70,000 people with in credible speed a thousand dving a day. At Marseilles 87,000 died; " 200.000 in Moscow. "It is the most dreaded and dangerous of all international epidemics. In the Bombay outbreak, of 220.000 cases, 164, 000 deaths occurred. California Rats Infected. "The Bubonic plague is now among the rats and ground squirrels of the Pacific coast," senator Owen further states. His bill, which will be reported again at the next session, aims to bring under one department, for economy and efficiencj', the various health agencies of the government. When the bubonic plague broke out in San Frapcisco in 1900, the city board of health quarantined tbie Chinese district, says senator Owen. The United States circuit judge, on June 15, 1900, declared the city quarantine illegal. ' Bubonic plague was then (1900) only in the citv. Xot having been nroperly suppressed, it is now scattered over the Pacific coast at points a thousand miles apart, and is requiring enormous sums of money in the attempt to stamp it out. "It has not been stamped out," says sen ator Owen, ''but is now endemic and spreading througli the infection of ground squirrels and rats, which con tinually infect each other and spread the germs of the disease over enlarging areas. At any time it may break out in our thickly congested centers with tragic results that may stagger the nation." The California Quarantine. A federal quarantine of the state of California was finally declared by thc official of the public health and marine hospital service at Washington, but this resulted in activities on the part of the 1 California commercial interests to have tne -marine nospitai service suppressed through the secretary of the treasury, in I marine hospital service is now placed. A false case was proved, so senator Owen says, and it vas made to temporarily stand as the truth before the country furnishing evidence and "proving" that there "was no bubonic plague m San Francisco. In actual fact, however, bubonic plague was there in sober fact, as has since been nroved. Says Truth Was Suppressed. The point senator Owen emnhasizes is that this bureau of public health, the public health and marine hospital serv ice, "was not strong enough to stan I up against the power of a state demanding that its conjmerce should not be inter fered -with bv publishing of the full truth of the j&resence of the plague to. warn people against it. Commercialisni triumphed over tire interests of the pub lic health lecause the agencies of he public health wdretoo weak. Senator Owen believes, therefore, that thg-' public health and marine hospital service should i be taken out of the sepaxtient of the j jSlSSHISn I ! who easily pass the quarant-ne, but who HlS f K.

This mine is said to have been profit ably worked by the Mexicans a great number of years. It has also been worked by an English company for tne past 20 years. But at the end of 190S the mine was shut down. Some Xevr Possibilities. An examination showed that there are in the mine two veins from seven to 15 f-et wide and from 2000 to 3000 feet long, from which samples taken show an estimated value of about IS ounces - silver per ton. it is Deiieved that satisfactory amount of ore of this value can o.e opened up by development and that 87 percent of the values can be ob tained by concentration, all-sliming and subsequent cyanidation; and that by treating 250 to 300 tons a day a profit of about $300,000 per annum would be realized. Since these estimates were made, IS months ago, considerable development work has been done in tne mine, result ing in showing that the positive ore developed was 81,116 -tons of 41 pounds value, and the amount of probable ore stood at 106,1C0 tons on January 1, 1910, and it Is calculated that by the end of this year the positive ore will reach 175,000 tons of 30 s. value.

Judge Farll is negotiating to begin operations and to work the propeVtv which will probably be opened up in the near future. Tnis property, says Mr. Smith, is one of the biggest mines in 5onora. It is a Spanish "autigua" with a record production of several million dollars. Of late jears it has proven un profitable. The mill was originally put up by the English company, former own ers, and had a capacity of 400 tons per day. The old company spent all the funds on the surface without de veloping the mine, while they held it under bond and option from the Mexi can owners. After tne English compa ny's option expired the mine reverted to the owners, the Alzua family, .who thereafter worked it at a profit' for several years. After that Richardson Bros., of Cal ifornia, took it over, but did no work to advantage. The present company has not done anytmng of value either.

The RepnbUca Mine. Speaking of otner properties in that section, Mr. Smith says that the Repub lica, which is east of Trinidad and across the line in the state of Chihua hua, is now working in good shape and, after a great deal of trouble In unwa tering it, the company now has tha water under control and is getting plen ty of good ore. The Mina Mexico, also in the Sahua ripa district, about 25 miles east oC Tonichi, of wSilch TV. E. Pomeroy of El Paso is manager, is in good shape. It has been a steady and profitable pro ducer for 40 years. Until' lately it was worked by Mexican owners, when Mr. Pomeroy organized a cojnpany and pur-, chased It. I understand the .company will build a wagon road from the mine to Tonichi and will instal a 30-ton smel ter and a concentrator and will treat the ore on the ground. The ores are lead and silver. There are. thousands of tons of ores on the old dumps which willbe sorted and concentrated. I have no doubt that it will be a great paying investment to the company. La Dura Property. In the same district, the Prleto com pany, that has taken, over La Dura, is doing much work. The workings are down .to a depth of 1200 feet and still in bonanza. There has been much rain in that district this year, the grass is luxuri ant and cattle fat. There Js a good crop of corn. In fact, it is one of the finest cattle countries in Mexico. An English company has lately bought the Milpilla ranch of 100,000 acres from the Sonora Land cdmpany, 20 miles from Tonichi, and will farm it and raise cattle. It abounds in grass, timber and -water.- There are a few American prospec- tors in that section. The greatest crisis in a "vroroan's lif a is when first she becomes a mother.
