BF.riLix. Aug. 2S.— The Post publishes
I letter from a Hamburg physician,
makine the irravest charges of neglect
against the authorities. "Not even the
excreta of cholera patients," he says,
"are rendered innocuous. A sailor at
tacked with cholera was left for
two hours lying on a pontoon
near the Baum Wall before he was
removed. The cholera hospital is
crowded, and is in an unsanitary condi
tion. The streets are swarming with
the poorest and dirtiest people. The
Elbe, with its partly dried banks, is a
receptacle for much rottiug refuse. It
Js the duty of the empire to remedy the
existing evils, and at once."
The National Zeitung also comments
strongly upon the attitude of the Ham
burs: senate in ignoring the precautions
ordered by Russia in July, and expresses
the hope that the present state of affairs
will lead to a bill that will enable the
labors of the imperial sanitary office to
benefit the whole nation. These com
ments voice the popular feeling that
the time has arrived to abolish the
epecial privileges guaranteed to single
etates, and to extend the central power
of the empire.
At a conference of the ministry of the
Interior yesterday it was decided to
publish daily the number of cases of
cholera reported throughout Germany.
This fact became kuown this evening,
ami will be made public officially to
morrow. The ministry of the in
terior took this action at
the suegestion of the emperor,
who believes that the plague can be
fought more advantageously if the peo
ple understand the exact nature of the
peril to which they are exposed. In
Berlin especial!}' such a course is re
garded as advisable, because a panic
can be averted by the publica
tion of all the facts. The city
was never cleaner or healthier, and
with proper preventive measures it
probably can be kept comparatively free
from the infection. For the last thirty
6ix hours no fresh cases have been dis
covered. A general order will be given
out to replace all general orders to rail
way officials in the matter of disinfec
Reports from Hamburg show that the
•uneasiness in that city is increasing.
There has been no panic as yet, and up
to this afternoon comparatively few
patients have been left with their fam
ilies. This evening, however, it was
reported that an express train has
arrived with 400 persons from Ham
burg. The former policy of the
Hamburg authorities in suppressing
news concerning the disease is to a
large extent responsible for this exodus.
The people place little confidence in the
reports now riven out, believing that
the number of victims is purposely mis
represented, and that the mortality is
In the absence of a record which the
people trust, exaggerated reports have
been circulated since last evening, and
many who had resolved to stay at home
have suddenly moved out with their
families. The persons arriving this
evening say there is also general
suspicion that the sanitary au
thorities are inellicient, although
such an authority as Prof. Koch, who
was in Hamburg several days, approved
of the measures taken by tiiein to stay
the progress of the disease. From other
parts or Germany reports of isolated
cases of cholera or cholerine have been
received today, but there is apparently
no indication of a general spreading of
A regiment at Metz is suffering from
cholerine. The principal cause of ap
prehension now is that a panic may de
velop in Hamburg and the partial scat
tering of the city's population other
parts of Germany may produce infec

Concerned About the Troops.
Emperor William has had presented
to him exhaustive reports on the prog
ress of cholera and the measures taken
to combat it. He devotes several hours
daily to studying the epidemic. He has
ordered tbatvigorous measures be taken
to insure the safety of troops.
The sanitary officials tonight reiterate
their assertion that there is no Asiatic
cholera in this city. However, a suspi
cious case was reported yesterday of a
woman who had just arrived from Ham
burg,aud who was seized with choleriac
symptoms. The woman and her hus
band were immediately sent to the
Moabit hospital, where they are still

Hamburg, Aug. 23.— The number of
fresh cases of cholera Saturday was
«St).', the number of deaths 197. Incom
plete returns for the day show that
there are at present TOO in the hospitals.
The number of deaths has not yet been
ascertained. The mortality from chol

the presence of the plague is apparent
everywhere. The streets today have

no regular occupation have gone already
to RostocK. Lui'beck and other seaside
resorts. Dissatisfaction with the meas
ures adopted by sanitary authorities
and with their policy of trying to
hold back the worst news is largely
responsible for the growing unrest,
which may culminate almost at any
hour in a panic. The sale of fruit in
the city has become a dead branch of
trade. Dealers who handle Southern
fruit find their stocks practically a total
The funerals which take place con
stantly are conducted without the
usual ostentation. Not more than two
or three carriages follow a hearse,
and in many cases the body is taken
to the grave without a friend or rel
ative to accompany it. The services
are limited to a prayer or at most to
a prayer and hymn. This simplicity of
ceremony is the result of the repeated
warnings of the sanitary authorities and
private physicians. The Hamburg sen
ate has requested an extra credit of
3,000,000 marks for medical purposes.

and Dr. C. F. Roberts, chief in

party visited the quarantine islands on

Hamburg, arrived at this port today
and were subjected to rigid inspection.

Somewhat of a sensation was created
this evening by a report that cholera
had been discovered among emigrants
who arrived today. It was found upon
investigation Carl Lentz. an immigrant
accompanied by his wife and family,
had exhibited symptoms which made
the examining physicians for a time
suspicious of cholera. After a careful
examination, however. Health Officer
Duflield decided that it was not the
dread disease, but as a matter of pre
caution Lentz was sent back across the
river to Windsor and placed in a deteu
tion hospital, where his case will be
more thoroughly diagnosed.
Detroit, Mich., Aug. 20.— Health
Officer Duffield has issued an order that
no ambulance shall take away from the
railroad depots in this city any person
found suffering from cholera or diar
rhoea. Although he does not appre
hend any danger, Dr. Duffield has taken
these precautionary measures to guard
against the possible spread of the dread
disease should it be brought into Detroit
by immigrants who may come . through
Canada from, the seaboard. De . has
made arrangements with the railroads
for the proper care of all such cases.
Any person whose condition is at all
suspicious will be placed in a car put
apart for use as a temporary hos
pital, and then taken to some isolated
spot until all danger is past. All pas
sengers on trains arriving today from
the East, through Canada, were thor
oughly examined by physicians.
Among the immigrants who arrived
over the Grand Trunk railroad were ten
Hollanders. They passed through New
York city, but had no health certificates
to show that they had been examined.
There seems to be a laxity in the regu
lations existing there that cannot be ac
counted for. and which may result in
the terrible Asiatic scourge being Im.
into this country. Nothing on which
ithe foreigners could be detained was
found, and they were allowed to pro
ceed on their journey to Chicago.
Mostkkal, Quo., Aug. 28.— 8y or

European mails arriving here are being

French ship La Touraine reached here
this morning, and its contents were
thoroughly fumigated, under the direc
tion of Deputy Postmaster Palmer.
LONDON'S GREAT DANGER.
More Stringent Quarantine Meth
London, Aug. 28.— Dr. Thome, chief
of the sanitary division of the local gov
ernment board, says he has grave doubts
of the ability of the board to keep the
cholera out of London. He; says the
great source of danger is in the East
end. It is impossible to watch and lo
cate indigent immigrants, who naturally
gravitate toward the East cud on arrival
in the country.
They do not know themselves where
they are going, and their addresses can
not be registered. They have no work
in prospect and no friends to receive
them, and they drift to the slums and
are lost sight of. They are, of course,
subjected to a medical inspection
at the port of arrival, but they
might pass this and yet be in
fected with cholera in the incubation
stage, which would develop afterward.
Ordidary travelers can be watched for
any desired length of time after arrival,
as they have destinations in view and
can give their addresses.
At the instance of Dr. Thome all the
leading medical officers under the gov
ernment met yesterday to discuss the
situation. It was s resolved that more
stringent measures than now possi
ble should be authorized. There
is a growing feeling that Mr. Gladstone
should convene the ministers) and pass
an order on the ground of public ex
pediency, empowering o2icials to ab

discretion so long as the danger from

ADROIT SAID PASHA.
He Always Has Some Excuse for
Outrage on Christians in Tur
Wasiiixgtox, Aug. 28.—Constanti
nople dispatches stating that the burn
ing of the house of Rev. Dr. BartleU,
the American missionary at Bordeur, in
Asia Minor, for which prompt repara
tion has been demanded by the United
States, has been traced to the careless
ness of an American servant, are quite
at variance with reports made by the
American board of commissioners for
foreign missions, and transmitted to the
state department, and are also contra
dicted by these dispatches received
from Pendleton King, the American
charge d'affaires at Constantinople.
Tne experience of the American lega
tion in Turkey in the cases of numerous
preceding outrages of a like character
have been that the facts in each case
have been met by denials from Said
Pasha, the Turkish minister of justice,
sometimes in the face of the clearest
proof, and some plausible excuse, like
that objected to in the present instance,
probably assigned to explain away the
affair. Minister Hirsch has more than
oace. put on record iv his offices dis
patches to the state department that,
though the ci and vizier and the minister
of foreign affairs of Turkey were will

when wronged. Said Pasha, by misrep
resenting the facts to the sultan, had
The present "explanation" of the
Bartlett outrage is retarded as a repeti
tion of Said Pasha's adroit maneuvers
to defeat the ends of justice and to
shield Moslem offenders against the
rights of Christians. It is understood
that the explanation will not delay the
peremptory orders given to the gunboats
Newark and Remington to proceed
from Genoa to Turkish waters as soon
as possible after the Columbus celebra

demand for reparation.
GETTING A LITTLE OF IT.
New York's Labor Commissioner's
Report Show That Wages Have
Wageworkers Thus Sharing in
Natural Increase of the Busi
ness of the Country.
Albaxt, N. V., Aug. 2S.— Charles TP.
Peck, commissioner of labor for New
York state, issued his annual report to
night. The data upon which the report
has been made was for the year com
mencing Sept. 1, 1889, up to and includ
ing the 31st of August, IS9O, and the
year commencing Sept. 1, IS9O, up to
and including the 31st of Au
gust, 1891. From the tables it
appears that there was a net increase of
wages of ?6, 377. 925. 09 in the year 1801,
as compared with the amount paid in
1590, and a net increase of production
of .*01.315,130.69 in the year 1891 over
that of 1890.
A simple analysis of this table demon
strates the fact that of the sixty-seven
industries covered 77 per cent of tiipm
show an increase in either the
wages or product or both, and
that there were no less
than 59.717 instances of individual in
crease of wages during the same year.
Wliile the "industries" are but sixty
seven in number the total "trades" rep
resented amount to 11,121. and give em
ployment to 255,000 workingmen and
women. Of the sixty-seven industries
included, 75 per cent show an increased
average In yearly earnings in the year
1591, while the total average increase of
yearly earnings of the 285,000 employes
was t23.1L The average increase of
yearly earnings of the employes in the
seventy-one trades showing an increase
was ?43.% in LS9I as compared with 1890.
In addition to the investigation of
this special subject, the bureau has con
tinued its annual investigation of all
labor disturbances occurring in the
state during the past year. The tolal
number of strikes reported for the year
IS'.U was 4.441. as against C.2SO occurring
in the year 1890. a decrease of 1.739. Of
the total number. -2,375. or 53 per cent
ol them were iv the building trades.

; . BURIED IN A CHAIR.
Unique Idea of a Wealthy Old
.Cexterville, 10., Aug. 28.—Eleze
tiah Shepherd, an old man who lived at
Drakeville, has had his wishes carried
out by being buried in a coffin in the
shape of a chair. For. the last fifteen
years Mr. Shepherd had been unable to
rest except by sitting in an easy chair,
and . in that position he proposed
to die. His friends endeavored
to dissuade him. from his eccentric no
tion. But he ordered a cabinetmaker
to construct the curious casket, which
was 1 finished before his death. It was
substantially built of white oak, with
walnut trimmings. He left instructions
to have his body placed in this casket in
a sitting posture, the wrists strapped
to the arms of the casket,
the limbs to its legs and the.
head and neck to the back. A glass
panel was placed in front to expose the
face of the dead man. All these in
structions were carried ; out, and the
casket placed hi a huge box in an up
light position. The chair casket was
kept on exhibition in Mr. Shepherd's
room for six weeks previous to his
death, and lie took especial satisfaction
in displaying it to his friends. He was
ninety years old, was a wealthy farmer,

A DIFFICULT DUTY.
Secretary of Treasury Foster Ad
dresses a Large Audience at
Asbury Park, N. J. %
Proper Administration of the Im
migration Laws the Depart
ment's Chief Difficulty.
Asbury Park, N. J., Aug. 28.— Fonr
thousand people assembled in the As
bury Park auditorium at the National
service this afternoon to hear Hon.
Charles Foster, secretary of the treas
ury, and Gen. Bussey, assistant secre
tary of the interior. Whitelaw Reid was
also expected to speak, but telegraphed
his regrets. The services were opened
with prayer .by Rev. Dr. McCosh, ex
president of Princeton university.
The subject of Secretary Foster's ad
dress was announced as "Religion in
Economy." In the course of his re
marks he said: "It is popularly sup
posed that the treasury department
looks only after the finances of the
country, but, as a matter of fact,it looks
after very many other important mat
ters. One of the most difficult duties of
my department is the proper
administration of the immigration
law. It is hard to determine
absolutely if a man is brought here un
der contract or is likely to become a
public charge. A young man without
a cent in his pocket, but strong of heart
and limb, is often less liable to become
a pauper than the weakly man with his
pockets full ot money. One of the most
important duties of the treasury depart
ment at this time is the care of the
marine hospitals at all ports of
entry in the country. My only re
gret is that the general Gov
ernment does not have a more complete
control of all those avenues for the in
troduction to the country of cholera and
other infectious diseases. The local
control of these q uarautine stations is a
relic of the old state's right idea. How
ever, we have undertaken vigorous
measures for the exclusion of rags and
passengers from infected ports, and the
full power and intelligence of the treas
ury department will be exercised for the
safety of the party." '
A reference to Mr. Blame's name was
loudly applauded. Gen. Bussey fol
lowed with a short address, la which he
said that ail opposition to the fair,
whether by one man or by an organized
band of men, must be crushed just as
surely and as promptly as was the re
bullion of the Southern states. He was
heartily applauded when he advocated
the most radical measures of dealing

Maj. Jones Tells of the Gov
ernment Work on the
Twin Cities Will Probably Be
The approaching international confer
ence at Grand Forks, with a view to
closer commercial union between the
Northwestern states and Canada, is a
general subject of discussion among
business men in both St. Paul and Mm
neapolis. Diverse views are taken by
men engaged in different lines of whole
saling and manufacturing, of the propo
sition to offer Canada further facilities
than those existing at present for the
extension of her trade in the states bor
dering on the Dominion. Some of the
pillars of the local manufacturing inter
ests have even gone so far as to pro
claim in open meeting that the only re
sult that can come from a conference
like the one to occur in September is
one beneficial to Canada and of doubtful
utility to the territory this aide of the
line. Ex-Gov. Pillsbiiry said, in a meet
ing of the board of trade in Minneapolis
a f>w days ago, that it was highly im
portant to send a full delegation to the
conference from Minneapolis, as there
would, iv all likelihood, be work for
them to do in fighting measures pro
posed, which, if adopted, would be* in
imical to the interests of the two cities.
The memorial prepared by Lawyer Key
noids, of Toronto, advocating the free
reciprocal use of canals and parity of
currencies, which will be read before
the convention ana proposed for pres
entation to the American congress, vras
read at the Minneapolis meeting and
Received iv Silence.
That silence was first broken by the
significant query by a member of the
board, whether it would not be a eood
time at this conference to spring an an
In numerous quarters the opinion is
expressed that the removal of tariff on
Canadian products in consideration of
reciprocal measures on the part of the
Canadian government, would put St.
Paul and Minneapolis manufacturers
and dealers at a disadvantage iv regard
to the trade of the Dakotas. That it
would be a grand idea for the Northern
Pacific and Great Northern railway
companies, -which run parallel into
Winnipeg; there is little doubt, as freer
commercial relations must necessarily
increase the bulk of the carrying trade,
but in the opinions of many, it would
divert a large amount of the trade of the
Dakotas to the Canadian centers.
General Manager Winter, of the Oma
ha, road, was called upon yesterday af
teruoon for an opinion as "to the efFects
of such reciprocal measures as are to be
discussed at the Grand Forks conference.
Mr. Winter said that in his judgment
nothing but good could come from the
commercial equity of two countries so
similar in their interests, and so united
by all natural laws. He had not given
the subject the study required to form
an absolute opinion on the matter, but
it seemed only reasonable to believe the
balance of benefit in trade must come to
the larger cities in Minnesota than
those of Manitoba. He could not see
that the railroads would derive such
great benefit, except from the natural
increase in trade due to increased pros
perity of the country traversed by the
lines. This was certainly legitimate.
Red Kivcr Improvement,
A Winnipeg paper last week, in an
editorial discussion of the conference
and its objects, laid great stress on the
necessity of immediate improvement of
the Ked River of the North from the
Canadian line to Winnipeg. The state
ment was made thai the improvements
on the American side had already made
the river navigable for heavy craft from
the boundary line to Grand Forks. This
was an important Canadian outlet, and
for an outlay of 130,000 the river could
be made navigable for large boats riglit
into Winnipeg. A Globe man called
on Maj. W. A. Jones, the United States
engineer at St. Paul, who has had direc
tion of the work on the Ked river.
"Yes," said the major. "It is true
that from the Canadian line to Grand
Forks there is now four feet of water in
the Ked river, and in the very lowest
stage there will be not less than three
feet at the shallowest points of the
stream. It is also true that for a very
light expenditure the river could be
opened for freighting Into Winnipeg.
This 1 believe is already in contempla
tion. There is at present comparatively
little travel in the lied river. It was
not made navigable until last fall, when
the government blasting and dredging
operations were completed. Now it is
an open avenue for American and
The decision of all the St. Paul men
spoken to on the subject of the confer
ence is that it will develop matters of
the gravest importance to both coun
tries, and that the deliberations should
be thorough before any recommenda
tions are made to congress to act.

Owen Sovsv, Ont., Aug. 28.— Large
American towing tugs have been call
ing here of late for repairs and pro
visions. These vessels are engaged in
towing immense rafts of Canadian saw
logs to United States ports, there to be
sawed up into lumber. The magnitude of
the trade in sawlogs is not comprehend

Georgian bay. One raft which recently
Dassed here bound from Parry Sound to
Bay City, in charge of two immense
tug's, the Parker and the Sea Gull, cov
ered an area of nearly sixty acres, which
represents a sawing of 7,000,000 feet of
lumber, and this is nothing unusual.
All this mill work, of course, goes to
American mill owners. Meanwhile,
mill after mill on the shores of. the
Georgian bay is being closed down.
Several years ago Owen Sound did au
immense trade in supplying provisions
for the mill hands on thenorth shore.
This trade here and in other towns has
dwindled to comparatively nothing.
The people in the Georgian bay
district attribute a large share of
the recent depression to the re
moval of the export duty on saw logs.
Some time since the town councils of
the various ports united in petitioning
for the reim position of the duty. Feel
ing is becoming stronger and stronger,
and, from all indications, a more de
termined and concerted movement than
any previous ehort will be made at an
early date to induce the Ottawa author
ities to reimpose the export duty.
