NO NEED FOR ALARM I EX-SURGEON GENERAL HAM ILTON ON THE CHOLERA. !HE says fears are needless The Sanitary Arrangements of America Ample to Prevent the Advent of the Scourge Gross Neglect in Eng land Steamer From the Cholera Districts Inspected at New York. CiHCAOO.Aug. 27. John S. Hamilton, ex-surgeon general of the marine hospital service aud at present in the marine hospital service here, sounds a j note of warning to those health of ficials in the country who arc j doing much to convince the public that cholera is near at hand. Prof. Hamilton takes the view that while there is danger there is ab solutely no occasion for alarm. Un necessary and repeated warnings, he says, are liable to produce a panic and , result seriously. In answer to a question on the subject of cholera he said: "I think there is absolutely no occasion for alarm, although there is every reason for extreme vigilance on the part of those entrusted with the management of our sanitary matters. The national and local authorities have better sanitary arrangements man ever i i. . i, i - - more practical and sanitary science has more resources than formerly. The sanitary otlicers throughout the country are fully alert, but some of them seem to forget that one of the most important duties of an ofliccr charged with sanitary administration is the prevention of panic. Panic par alyzes industries anil dries up the channels of trade, doing almost as much harm as the cpidemU itself." Gross Neglect In England. London1, Aug. 27. It was announced this morning that another passenger who arrived at Gravesend on the steamer Gemma Thursday from Ham burg, had died from cholera at the Gravesend hospital. There is deep indignation at the carelessness of the medical ofllccrs who in spected and passed the Gemma, Much uneasiness has been created by knowledge that some of the Gemma's passengers are in Ijondon. The where abouts of all of them are not known to the authorities, but a watch will bo kept by all the medical and sanitary oflicials for the first appearance of the disease. It is considered that an out break is inevitable. The French government has ordered that all Russian .lews arriving at Mar seilles be sent to the lazaretto and their clothes burned. The Paris coun cil of hygiene is distributing 100,000 pamphlets describing methods for tho prevention of infection. Ships From Europe Inspected. Ni:w York, Aug. 27. The general trans-atlantic steamer La Tourainc, which sailed from Havre, and which it was feared might have illness of a con tagious nature on board on account of the outbreak of cholera at Havre, arrived here early this morn ing. The vessel had nosign of sickness aboard during the voyage, nor is there any sickness aboard of her now. She was subjected to a rigid inspection by the officials at quarantine, after which she proceeded as usual to her pier on the west side. The steamer Gellcrt of the Ham burg-American line, which sailed from tiatnourg August h aim Havre three days later, arrived below early this morning, but after a thorough examination was allowed to pro ceed to her landing.

Fall Itirnit, Mass., Aug 27. The principal witness in the Borden case yesterday afternoon was Bridget ! Sullivan, the family servant. She toiu in detail all the doings ol tuc , household on August 3 and 4 up to the murder, even to tiie taking in ot tue milk can in the morning and Mr. Borden's coming to breakfast without any collar. Some of her points were: " I washed windows on three sides of the house. I heard Lizzie laugh up stairs when 1 let Mr. Borden in. I heard Lizzie later tell Mr. Borden very slow ly that Mrs. Kordcn had got a note that morning. Lizzie came from the dining room and said: 'If you go out lock the door, as Mrs. Itordcn is going or lias gone out; I may be out, too.' I went upstairs for a nap. Lizzie was in the kitchen ironing. I took a rest on my bed. About ten or fifteen minutes later I heard Lizzie yell: 'Come down quick, Maggie, father is dead. I ran down stairs. Go for Ir. Bowen.' she said. I wanted to go into the sitting room, but she sent me on. Dr. Bowen aud I got there together. I heard Dr. Bowen say that Mr. Bor den had been murdered. I said I'd like to go for Mrs. Itordcn. Lizzie told me to stay with her, as she was positive that Mrs. Itordcn was in the house. I went upstairs with Mrs. Churchill after Mrs. Itorden, I saw her lying dead." Counsel for the defense was stirred up last night over the story that Matron Begun had heard a quarrel be tween the Itorden sisters, and Attor ney Jennings, nt the solicitation of the reporter who wrote the article, seconded by a number of prominent citizens, drew up a form of affidavit, denying the state ments attributed to her and submitted it to Mrs. Began for her signature. She refused to sign it unless the mar shal said so, and the marshal positive ly refused to allow her to do anything of the kind unless she was placed on the witness stand SAVED AS IF BY A MIRACLE.

RUINED BY FLAMES. METROPOLITAN OPERA HOUSE ALMOST DESTROYED. ONLY THE BROADWAY FRONT SAVED. rhe Famous New York Amusement Struc ture Ilailljr Scorche-J Another Goth am Fire in a lluslness lllock Causes aSI.'.UOO Loss Augusta, Ga., lias a S40U.OOO Conlla- ration. New York, Aug. 27. The Metropol itan opera house, one of the most magnificent and expensive of modern play-houses, occupying the entire block bounded by Itroadway, Seventh avenue. Thirty-ninth and Fortieth streets, was ruined by fire in the short space of an hour this morning. The Broadway front was saved by the fire men but fully three-quarters of tho square was destroyed by the Hamcs. Just where the lire started is un known, but it must have been in the vicinity of the stage which backs on Seventh avenue. How it managed to get such headway without being dis covered is also a problem that Chief Boiiiier cannot solve. The special building signal was rung aliout U:30 o'clock. Then the entire interior of the theatre was a fierce furnace, and as it was apparent that the blocK would be consumed help was at once called. Over a dozen steamers responded to this summons, and as it was clear there was no saving the theater their united efforts were exerted on tho Broadway front, in which arc located the bank of New Amsterdam and Zan cheri & Gazzo's restaurant. The for mer covers the Thirty-ninth street aud the latter the Fortieth street corner. The main entrance to the opera houso was on t lie-Iron t between the ban It nf cd and the restaurant- This was sav with the assistance of the wind, which was blowing strongly from the east, and swept the flames back toward Seventh avenue. All the of fices in the six stories of the front were not touched by tuc tire, but those of the opera house on the Thir- ty-ninth street side near Seventh ave- nue were : ruined. Cornelius Maans, employed by Al fred Uperti, the scenic artist, who was using a part of the opera house tempo rarily as his studio, was hemmed in by the Haines on the third floor, but made his way to one of the windows on luirty-ninin street ano irom mere the ground tloor. He is not believed to be seriously hurL The loss will amount to SI 00, 000 When the llames had been suffici ently suIkIuciI to permit entrance to the building it was seen that the stage and everything from the proscenium arch to the rear wall had been entirely swept away excepting the bare brick walls. The roof above the stage was entirely gone and the sky could be seen above through th smoke that still arose from the ruins. In the auditorium tho five tiers that arose above the orchestra still remained, but all the trappings of the boxes, the upholstcrings of the chairs, the frescoes of the walls and dome had vanished. Abbev. Schocfel & Gran had leased the building for the coming season, this lease being good from October and had planned to begin their opera sea son November 2 and becrctary Mo Laran expressed the opinion that by energetic work the op era Mouse might be ready for them on that date. The opera house has been engaged for the great temperance jubilee in September and for the Columbus and Catholic club in October, but of course the fire has can celled those dates. New York, Aug. 27.
