NEW ORLEANS, La., Sept. 23— The
Beauregard school building, which it
was proposed to use as a fever hospi
tal, and which a mob threatened to
burn down, was destroyed by fire at 1
o'clock this morning, although it was
guarded by police. It was formerly a

NEW ORLEANS, La., Sept. 23— The
local fever situation did not show any
improvement today when the results
were summed up. There were fewer
cases than were reported yesterday,
but there was one more death than in
the previous twenty-four hours, and
at least four of the patients were re
ported at 6 o'clock to be in a dangerous
condition. So that, while there is no
danger of an epidemic here, condi
tions are multiplying to prove what
most of the eminent doctors have said
— that yellow fever exists. At the close
of the last twenty-four hours the rec

The ninth new case reported today
was that of Mrs. Lessemes, whose
death is mentioned. The woman had
been sick for several days, but she had
apparently no friends, or if she did
they were afraid to go near her. It
was only this morning that a doctor
was summoned, and when he went to
the house he diagnosed the case as
yellow fever. The woman died of in

Marie Dubois, who died this morning,
was a child living in Carrollton, where
the disease has been especially preva
lent. She was taken on the 16th, and
her case was immediately diagnosed
as yellow fever. The other death was
Secreto. He was an Italian, and. as
in other cases of Italians afflicted, r.
physician was only called in when
there was no hope of saving his life.
Tonight four cases at least are re
ported to be in an extremely danger
ous condition. The other cases, how
ever, were reported as presenting fa
vorable signs, and there was a marked
improvement in the Saint Claude
neighborhood. At a special meeting
of the city council it was decided to
at once put $25,000 at the disposal of
the board of health; $25,000 more is
to be held in reserve, to be used in the.
event that the situation shall become
serious enough to warrant the use of
the additional sum by the board.
MOBILE, Ala., Sept. 23.— The official
report today is that so far there have
been thirty-eight pronounced cases of
yellow fever, three have died, sixteen
have been discharged, and nineteen re
main under treatment. Two of the
cases were reported today, and ten
were discharged. Up to noon there
had been no deaths since Satur
day last, and all but one or two are
reported doing well. The two cases to
day are Mrs. Julia Jarvis, Elmira
street, between Broad and Marine, and
Henry P. Tulling, George street, near
Selma. There were at the close of last
w eek four serious centers of infection,
namely, the neighborhood of Christ
church; the neighborhood of Washing
ton square; the neighborhood of the
Marine hospital and city hospital, and
in the extreme northwestern part of
the town. Since that time there have
been no further developments in any
of these localities save in the second
named, and in that locality the spread
of the fever had been remarkably slow,
so slow that hope is now entertained
that it will be stamped out altogether.
Another death was added to the list
tonight, being that of John J. Bourn,
chief clerk of the Louisville & Nash-

This statement is made on the highest

PARIS, Sept. 23.— A dispatch to the
Temps from Madrid says: The attitude
of the United States has caused a great
sensation in Madrid, because opinion
has been lured on by the optimistic
communications of the Spanish minis
ter at Washington upon the character
and duration of the attitude of the
government, and that, too, despite sev
eral warnings from Mr. Olney and Mr.
Cleveland's message. The official bul
letins of Captain-General Weyler have
received too much confidence, when the
United States government was every
month receiving from its consuls and
special envoys totally different news.
The general impression at San Sebas
tian and Madrid is that the Spanish
government will try to drag negotia
tions along, unless it rejects purely
and simply the good offices of the Unit
ed States, on the ground of public opin
ion and upon the further ground that
the terms of the settlement will be
criticised. A great deal of criticism
is expected, especially from the Pacific
coast, where the sentiment has been
strong in favor of the government tak
ing charge of the road. But after con
sidering the matter in all its bearings
the administration is confident thai
the solution of the vexatious question
has been reached. The agreement to
which President McKinley has decided
to give his sanction is the same which
was submitted to congress by President
Cleveland last January. Under this
agreement the reorganization commit
tee will bid for the road under a fore
closure sale the sum of $45,754,059.
In order to give an intelligible state
ment of what this bid will mean to
the United States it is necessary to en
ter briefly into the story of the Union
Pacific obligation to the government.
The principal debt of the Union Pa
cific to the United -Itates was $35,539,
--512. A portion of this has not yet been
advanced by the United States. The
interest paid by the government
amounts to $36,954,893. The whole in
debtedness on the Ist day of July, 1897,
was $70,494,405. The sinking fund of

LONDON, Sept. 23.— As a singular coinci
dence, the freedom of the city of York was
conferred upon the Duke o> Cambridge, the
former commander-in-chief of the British
forces, and at about the same time today the
freedom of the city of Glasgow was conferred
upon Lord Wolseley, the present commander
in-chief of the British forces. Lord Wolseley,
in thanking the corporation of Glasgow for
the honor conferred upon him, said the Brit
ish army machinery was "strained and out
of gear," and advocated a sufficient increase
in its strength to meet all emergencies. Con
tinuing, the commander-in-chief remarked:
"The navy has been restored to its ancient
and proud pre-eminence; but it is arrat felly
to declare that only the navy is required for
our protection. Great Britaii. requires a mod
erate sized army of perfect, quality to pro
tect these islands and to hciid her coal sta
tions beyond the seas."

Denial of the Ultimatum
Story Fails to Relieve the

LONDON, Sept. 23.— The Madrid cor
respondent of the Times says: The
government organs roundly deny that
Minister Woodford has mentioned an
ultimatum, but the public mind is not
altogether relieved thereby. The policy
of the government in denying and sup
pressing news and directly denying
the truth of almost everything in any
way unpalatable must always tend to
increase public uneasiness. The cor
respondent adds: The use of the word
ultimatum is exaggerated; Gen. Wood
ford doubtless expressed himself ener
getically, but between this and fixing
a period of six weeks to end a wide
spread insurrection under the pain of
taking up the cause of the insurgents
against a friendly power, there is a
very wide distinction, and more espe
cially so in the present political situa
tion,, when a change of government
more or less radical cannot be distant.

same day, was $17,735.209. After de

asset of the company in the hands of
the United States for the purpose of
paying the debt of the Union Pacific
railroad company to the government,
the sum of $28,015,850 remains to be
paid. That is the only sum. which
Fitzgerald's reorganisation committee,

the $28,000,000, making a loss of nearly
$25,000,000 in round rfumbers, according
to the figures of the opponents of the
agreement. Some of those who have
favored the compromise figure the gov
ernment's loss at much less, but Sen

an untiring champion pf the compro
mise, admitted in a debate with Sen

Eckels Speaks to the Bankers
of Colorado on Sound
DENVER, Col., Sept. 23.— Comptroller
Eckels was the guest of honor at a
banquet this evening at the Brown
Falace hotel given by the Denver
Clearing House association. One hun
dred distinguished citizens of Colorado,
bankers, state senators and othei s
whose names are associated with the
. building of this city and state, were
present. Comptroller Eckels made an
after-dinner speech, to which close at
tention was paid by his auditors, and,
at its close, he was warmly applauded.
Mr. Eckels began by emphasizing the
fact that the citizens of all parts of
the country are actuated by the same
spirit — a desire for the good of the
whole country, and that, no matter
how fierce the fight between partisans
might be, there is no danger of its
weakening the foundation of the re
public. After pleading for a continua
tion of the feeling of mutual confi
dence so long maintained between the
East and the West, he said:
It will not do for the East to boast or
its possessions of the surplus capital or the
country, which has come with a grand thrift
and opportunities, or the West to point, with
overweening pride, to its stupendous re
sources and its wonderful advancement. The
wealth of the one but continues to diminish
if not employed and that of the other is
of no ava 1 if not developed. The advancement
of both follows the same pathway and centers
in the same interests. I have tonight no plea
to make for the country's accumulated capital
upon the one hand nor for its undeveloped
riches on the other, except the plea that at
a time when we are entering upon an era of
better things, they may be brought nearer
together and not driven wider apart. It i 3 a
plea consistent with the dictates of business
judgment and accords with the common sense.
It is a protest that may well be uttered by
citizens everywhere, no matter what the
measure of their interests or the financial
tenets to which they bear allegiance.
I am not unmindful of the fact that a
large majority of the citizens of this state
feel that they have in the economy of the
commerce been sorely injured in one of their
great wealth-producing industries. If such
a result has followed they have not been left
wholly without compensating benefits nor have
they suffered more keenly than at various
times in the country's history have others
who have embarked in other lines of under
taking. The law of the commercial world,
through all its history, is proven to be a
law of continual change. More tlian once New-
England and the East have been compelled
to yield to other sections of the country great
industries which their people had hoped to
build upon for the future and ln the years
to come. I doubt not but that other and
greater changes will come upon them. It Is
not without the range of possibility that the
Carolinas may draw from Massachusetts the
cotton mill and the states of Tennessee and
Colorado from Pennsylvania the steel and
iron industries. But if they do, following the
line of economic truth, some new development
will be fostered which will more than make
adequate reparation fcr a seeming irreparable
los* 3 - . _, j
If the citizen of Colorado has suffered, de
spite the fact he can boast a territory more
nearly possessed of all the things and sent
to the support of a people than any state
within the borders of the union.
Mr. Eckels closed with a prophecy that tne
country is now entering upon an era of re
newed prosperity in which East, West, North
and South will alike Darticipate.

PRJCK TWO CEl^Taj^J^ragg
Chapman Talks Free Sixteen
to One on the Stump
COLUMBUS, 0., Sept. 23.— About
3,000 people attended the opening meet
ing of the Democratic campaign at the
Auditorium tonight. Several thousand
personal invitations had been sent out
by the local committee. Hon. A. W.
Thurrnan presided. The chief speech
was that of Horace L. Chapman, can
didate for governor. Other speakers
were Gen. A. J. Warner, of Marietta;
Maj. James A. Rice, of Canton, and
Congressman John J. Lentz. Mr.
Chapman read his speech and consider
able of the effect was thus lost upon
the audience. He said in part:
Our committoe very properly selected the
23d day of September as the t.iue to open our
campaign, in commemoration of the patrio
tism and virtue of the three New York
militiamen— Paulding, Vanwert and Williams,
in honor of whom three counties in Ohio are
named— who refused to be -oribed and to sell
their country 117 years ago today for 10,000
guineas or $50,000 worth of British gold,
offered by Maj. Andre, the spy, an officer of
the British army, who had arranged with
that traitor, Benedict Arnold, to betray his
country and deliver Gen. Washington into
the hands of Sir Henry Clinton. When the
bribes were offered and the amount increased
from time to time, the firm reply came from
the three plain militiamen: "We are Ameri
cans." They could not be bought with
By reason of the position taken by the two
great parties of Ohio, in tneir platforms this
year, the same questions are again to be dis
cussed and passed upon by the voters of our
commonwealth as were at issue at the elec
tion in November, together with other ques
tions of importance — taxation and the purity
of the ballot— aflecting our state government,
municipalities, counties, even down to town
ships and school districts.
The contest last year was the most re
markable in our history, by reason of the
fact that the money power— trusts and corpor
ations of every kind— was largely arrayed on
one side and the common people on the
other. Under these circumstances, six and
a half million votes were cast for Mr. Bryan,
in the face of the most powerful corruption
fund ever raised in the htstory of any coun
try. It Is now nearly eleven months c'nee the
election and what has taken place? Nothing
but broken promises and unredeemed pledges
on the part of the Republican party.
We are told that prosperity exists through
out the country: that labor is employed at
good wages and business booming— caused by
the advance in price of cereals, from the
foreign demand and the advance in some
other articles from the effect of the Dingley
bill. In my opinion the tariff question is one
that can be rightfully and honestly adjusted
in the interests of the whole people. There
are only two ways of raising revenue under
our laws: One by internal revenue and the
other by duties on imports. After ascertain
ing the amount that can be raised from the
internal revenue the balance should be levied
in the form of duties, on imports, with a
view to revenue only and ought to be levied
on luxuries (not prohibitory) with the view
of raising the largest amount of revenue and
causing the burdens to fall chiefly upon the
wealth of the country.
Money, whether metallic or paper, is the
creature of law, and its measuring power of
every other species of p--. -ne-ty is determined
by the amount in circul- tion an 1 the demand
for it. On this question my position is well
known. I am in favor of the restoration of
silver at the ratio of IG to 1 without wait
ing for the permission or consent of any
other country, believing ihat we are able to
maintain our own financial policy, and I a:n
in favor of only three kinds of money — gold,
silver and legal tender treasury notes, gcod
for all debts, public and private, and, in
support of my views, I quote from prominent
Republican staesmen who expressed their ejn
■victions upon this subject In language strong
er and more impressive than I can use.
Hon. William McKinley sail on the lloor
of the house of representatives June 24, 1890:
"I am for the largest use of silver in the
currency of the country.- Sher
man said, as published in his speeches and
reports of "Finance and Taxation," April 11,
1876. page 518: "The metals have kept to
gether with remarkable nearness, and it Is
said with great force, It seems to me, that
to adopt the gold standard alone and demone
tize silver would be to deprive the poor peo
ple of the world of the money which alone
measures the value of their production and
of their labor."
In the speech delivered by Senator T. B.
Foraker at Jackson, 0., March 6, 1895, he
said: "We believe in bimetallism in the
sense that silver shall be more than credit
money. It must again be made a money of
ultimate redemption, and as such take its
place along side of gold."
In conclusion, let the free men of Ohio,
no matter of what party, rise in their might
at the polls and crush that monster — bribery
—.which threaiens to tear down our form of
government and with it the teachings of hon
or, virtue and patriotism, which we have so
long revered. With an honest ballot at the
coming election we will win a great and
glorious victory and emulate the virtues cf ,
Paulding, Vanwert and Williams.

Francisco, with Admiral Selfiidge
aboard, arrived today at Gibraltar
from Tangier, and it was stated at the
navy department that she would prob
ably start eastward, cruising slowly *
up the Mediterranean until she reached
the coast of Syria. If she bad any
punitive mission in view when she
crossed the straits of Tangier, the fact
was carefully concealed at the navy
The claims referred to in the cable
dispatch were based upon the mal
treatment by certain native defend
ants of Americans and their preven
tion from doing business in Morocco.
Under the provisions of the extraterri
torial law, which governs in the semi
baiLarcus countries of Africa and
Asia, resident Americans and Euro
peans are privileged to take, under the
protection of their nationality, a lim
ited number of native servants, and
j this privilege has been construed Lo
I permit business men to thus engage
buyers and traders in their interest.
Some montht* ago some of the clerks
of an American trader in a town near
Tangier were set upon, beaten and
robbed of their employer's money anl
goods. This happened directly before
the residence of the principal func
tionary of the place. Complaint was
made to the government by United
States Consul General Burke, but with
out effect. He thereupon notified the
state department, and, at his instance,
the United States steamship Raleigh
was sent to Tangier. The effect upon
the sultan was immediate. He caused
the arrest of the Moors supposed to
have been the perpetrators of the as
sault, and promised restitution of Iho
money lost. The Raleigh afterwards
cruised along the coast of Morocco
well to the eastward, and, in his last
report to the state department, Con
sul General Burke stated that her
presence had undoubtedly done mucn
to cause the natives to respect the
United States flag, and tc prevent re
currence of the outrage.
Late this afternoon a long cable
gram was dispatched from the navy
department, and it is possible that it
contained instructions to Admiral Self
ridge to co-operate further with Con
sul General Burke, in case he meets
with opposition in his efforts to secure
protection for American interests.
ORDERED TO HONOLULU.
Gunboat Wheeling Will Sail as
Soon as Possible.
WASHINGTON^ Sept. 23.—Orders
were sent from the navy department
today to San Francisco to have th>.
gunboat Wheeling sent to Honolulu aa
soon as sho can- be prepared for tho
voyage. The Wheeling has been put
in commission recently, and was about
to start in a short time for Sitka, tak
ing stores and relief for the gunboat
Concord, now on duty in Alaska. She
is a small but well equipped modern
gunboat, somewhat smaller than the
Bennington, now at Honolulu, but to
gether the two gunboats will make a
good force. The Philadelphia will re
main at Honolulu until the Wheeling
arrives. Whether the Yorktown win
then be delayed is not certain, but it
is likely she will not stop at Honolulu
on her way home from China longer
than is necessary to secure coal and
stores. The Philadelphia, upon reach
ing Mare Island, will place most of her
men on the Baltimore, which has just
been extensively repaired, and the lat
ter will go to Hawaii as Admiral Mil
ler's flagship. The admiral will remain
at Honolulu while the exchange is be
The Wheeling sailed for Honolulu to
night. She was obliged to fill vacancies
in her crew by drafting forty men from
the Marietta and Monadnock. The
Wheeling carried dispatches to Hono

HURLEY, Wis.. Sept. 23.— Capt. J. S. Wall
returned from the Klondike river last even

in that time he managed to gather in nearly
$3,000 worth of go'«l dust. At the approach
of winter he sold what supplies he had on
hand and started for home in preference to
enduring the hardships of an Arctic whi

of citizens from both Ironwood and Hurley,
headed by the Norrie band, met him at the
depot and escorted the hero to his hor.;?.
