MOSQUITO THEORY NOW GETS SUPREME TEST New Orleans, Unprepared in Spite of Warnings, Hurriedly Arm 3 Itself Against the "Stegoymia Fasciata''—Cam paign Begun in Earnest in Belief That the Mosquito is the Sole Medium of Infection—Hope for Wire Net ting to Replace Costly Quarantine. By J. H. Whyte, Special Yellow Fever Commissioner of The Press at New Orleans. DR. QI'TTMAN KOHNKE, President of New Orleans City Board of Health. NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 4. —Tho yellow fever situation in New Or leans is now attracting general at tention the world over, Inasmuch as the mosquito theory Is being thor oughly tested for the tirst time on the mainland of this continent. Dr. Edmund Souchon, president of the state board of health of Louis iana, and Dr, Quitman Kohnko. presi dent of the city board of health of New Orleans, are now perhaps the two busiest officials of health depart ments In the whole United States. They are old Louisiana practitioners With much experience iv epidemics of yellow fever. Both are thorough ly wedded to the mosquito theory of Infection, But one of the three species of mosquito common to the gulf states carries yellow fever -the "stegomyta fasclata." The "anophe les" li the malaria-fever-carry Ing mosquito, ThS third Is the variety common to all parts of the civilised world, from the Klondike to the equator, l>r. J, H. White, at the head of the United Statics public health and ma rine hospital gen Ice, is firmly wedded to the mosquito theory, He went on record in a conference with Governor Newton C. lllanrhard of Louisiana in this city. Governor Blsnchard asked Dr. White Just how much confidence he had in the mosquito theory. Dr. White replied: "I have just this much confidence In it. The dear est things on earth to me ate my wife und children, Now you are privileged to take Ihe most virulent case of yel low fever In this city and allow me to make Ihe proper mosquito screen safeguards, mid I will allow my wife and children to .sleep In the adjoining' room with myself all during tlie pa-j tlent'g Illness or until ho dies. That Is Just how much conttdence I have In the theory." Governor Illanchard upon this re- j ply said that, although a medical lay-, man, he would henceforward sub-' scribe to It fully without further, hesitation. This story became public property In New Orleans with the result that GRAND DUKE WANTED TO OPEN GAMBLING HGUSE ALEXIS, THE CZAR'S UNCLE, THOUGHT HE COULD MAKE $500 A NIGHT OUT OF IT IN PARIS, BUT THE CZAR SENT A HOT FOOT MESSAGE TO STOP IT. (Scrlpps Nows Association.) pahis, Aug. |.—Grand DukS Atax ia, uncle of the czar, who haa Just heen removed from Ihe poll of com mando! of Ihe Russian navy, haa been unsuccessful In an al tempt to open a gambling house In Par-is. The grand duke when he lost his Job as Ihe bead of the RusslaO navy department a few weeks ago oame, d I real to Paris, and drew up a scheme for the opening of a gambling es tablishment on Ihe most luxurious lines, to be located in ihe fashionable Champs Rlyseo. The grand duke in tended to use his own name iv the venture so as to attract all tho big gest gamblers in Europe to the house and he estimated that he could clear a profit uf ut leust (SOU v night for himself. there Is every confidence In the theory. People Did Not Cooperate. it is not expected that the applica tion of the yellow fever dogma In New Orleans will be an absolute suc cess for several reasons, two princi pally: The lir.st is that the great bulk of the public here, In tlie ab sence of the fever, refused to heed the patient efforts of Dr. Kohnke and the medical fraternity to educate the community to take even the most primitive precautions to rid the city of the "stegomyis." The result is that there are now being bred here thousands of these mosyuitoes which Would never have come into existence If the people had been willing to take their lessons before the present emer gency arose. The other reason Is that the ab sence of a sewerage system, the lack Of a modern water works system to furnish altered water necessitates the retention of a system of obsolete above-the-ground cisterns nnd the presence everywhere of stagnant water. The Saving Wire Screen. No yellow fever hospital properly double screened and then having each cot individually net Inclosed, had been provided Until the present out break of the fever. Now one has been purchased outright and prepared un der the direction of Dr. White, with DR, EDMOND SOUCHON, President of Louisiana State Board of Health. the prognostication on his part that presently every port on the gulf coast of this country will soon he equipped with a similar hospital. The result, he says, will be that In tbe future yellow fever will be treated as any other disease, anil with no more dan ger or even alarm on the part of the community. Nevertheless it is deemed abso lutely certain that If the people will 'join hands with (She doctors, so COR- I vlnclng will be the demonstration of the yellow fever and mosquito fads that Major Heed established in lla- I vana, that not only New Orleans, but the whole south, will be aroused to ! Ihe possibilities of immunity to the i attacks of the yellow scourge, and that, too, with the elimination of all the present quarantine bats, the greatest menace to commerce in the south. Gambling establishments are legal ly recognised In Prance, but penults have to be obtained from tho govern* ment before a resort can be opened. Alexis drew up a request for the necessary permit and forwarded It to the French authorities. It was pass ed oil to (he prefect of police, M. Lu pine, who deckles on the Issuance of gambling permits, i.epine is general* ly obdurate as to the establishment of new gambling houses, but he de clined to take on himself the respon sibility of denying the request of the czar's uncle, and he was about to Is sue the necessary authorisation! when news of what was occurring reached Count Nelldoff, the Russian ambassa dor in Paris. Nelldoft realised that If Alexis went openly into the gam bling business there would be a tre mendous scandal, but he dared not appro ach Alexis and discuss the mat ter with him. In his perplexity he Wired direct to the c/.ar, telling him what Alexis was trying to do and asking for instructions. Immediately came a reply back from Tsarko-lelo ordering NelldotJ to see to it thai the necessary permis sion was not Issued to Alexis The authorisation was consequently not granted anil friends of Alexis say thai the grand duke is seriously con sidering abandoning his project of settling in Paris, as he had planned to do after bis fall from position as head of Ihe Russian navy, aud thai he will In all Probability now seek some other European capital where he may gamble and pocket his friends' money to bis heart's content A ROYAL TEA PARTY IN ENGLAND \ f The company present at this tea party are: King Edward, Queen Alexandra, Prince Edward of Wales, Prim c Albeit of Wales, Princess Vic toria, Lord and Lady Suftield, the ENVOY KOMURA'S MISFIT SLANT EYES JAP MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS IS A QUEER LOOKING, QUEERLY DRESSED LITTLE MAN WHO SEETH BUT SAYETH NOT.

So much dltliculty has been experienced in securing help that the farmers Of this vicinity have opened a free employment agency at the Artesian hotel, and are visiting every train to secure men to work In the harvest fields. It Is thought that har vest beginning almost a month earlier than usual Is largely responsi ble for the shortage of help. Wages range from $2 to $1 per day, with board, for men nnd $1.50 per day for teams. Fifty more men <are needed here at once, and harvest work will be delayed unless more men come In within a few days.
