BY THE PRESIDE^ STEPS TAKEN TO PREVENT IN* TRODUCTION OF CHOLERAi •A rnduutleo by mUek AU TmmU Carrying: Immigrants Arc to Be Sab* jected to Twenty Days Quarantine—Two More Infected Teasels Arrlre. WASHINGTON, Sept. 2. President Harrison arrived here during the day and a conference of the cabinet miuis iaters.now here, the first assistant secre tary and Dr. Wyrnan, surgeon general of the Marine hopital, was held at once to tli^'v.ss the cholera situation. It was decided not to issue a proclamation at this time, but the following circular was issued instead: Quarantine restrictions upon immigration to aid in the prevention of the introduction of cholera into the Uni oil States. To collectors of customs, medical officers of the Marine hos pital service, foreign steamship companies, state aud local boards of heialth: It having been ofticially declared that cholera is prevail ing ia va. ious portions of Russia, Germany and France, and at certain ports in Great Britain, as vrcl. as in Asia and it having been made to appear that immw rants in large num bers '*re corai:s into the United States from the infveted districts aforesaid, and that they and their personal effects are liable to intro duce cholera into the United States, and that vessels conveying them are thereby a direct menace to the public health and it having been further shown that under the laws of the several st.ites quarantine detention may fce imposed on these vest-els a sufficient length •f time to insure against the introduction of contag ous diseases, it is hereby ordered that no vessel from any foreign port carrying immigrants shall be admitted to enter at any port of the United States until said vessel Bhall have undergone a quarantine detention «f twenty days (unless such dotention is for bidden by the laws of the state or the regula tions made thereunder), and of such greater number of days as may be fixed in each special ca-=e by the state authorities. This circular to take immediate effect, except in cases of ves sels afloat at this date, which will be made the subject of special consideration upon due application to the department. It Received with Favor. The announcement of the issue of the circular meets with general favor every where the subject is broached, and the president and his advisers are heartily commended for the action they have taken. It is said that the quarantine pro posed is to be applied to vessels from all ports, although it is assumed that health officers will have discretion in the mat ter, and will be allowed to act as they Bee fit in the caso^ of vessels that come from non-infected ports, and that have clean bills of health. The practical ef fect of a declaration of a twenty days' quarantine, it is believed, will be to stop immigration from Europe for the time being, and thus will be brought about a result which the popular mind believes desirable at this time. The president, though not alarmed, fully comprehends the gravity of the situation, and nothing which the gen eral government may properly do to lessen the chances of cholera invasion will be left undone. A SERIOUS SITUATION. Arrival of Two More Cholera-InfMtod. Vessels at New York from Hamburg. NEW YORK, Sept. 4.—Nothing can now save the metropolis from a great plague but absolute compliance on the part of every member of the community with the instructions of the board of health and the quarantine authorities. The danger is real. It cannot be over estimated. Two newly-infected steamships ar rived in this harbor Saturday with awful stories of death and suffering. They were the Rugia and Normannia, both from Hamburg. The Rugia buried five steerage passengers at sea and had five living cholera patients still on board when she cast anchor. The Normannia buried four steerage passengers and one cabin passenger. She had four patients still alive, one being a member of the crew. It is claimed that the cabin pas senger who died on the Normannia was suffering from diabetes only. With the exception of this case all were diagnosed as cholerine. All the dead had been, buried at sea. The convalescent cases are considered very .serious, and further deaths are likely to occur. Health Officer Jenkins immediately ordered both ships to the lower bay as scon as the captains of the vessels had notified him of the condition of affairs. THE OUTLOOK DARK. Xine More Deaths on Hoard the Stricken Hamburg-American Steamers. QUARANTINE, Sept. 5.—The situation at quarantine is, as far as any informa tion has been obtained, practically un changed since Dr. Jenkins returned from the islands and reported two addi tional deaths on the Normannia, one on the Rugia and one on the Moravia. The passengers aboard the quarantined vessels welcomed a mild summer day accompanied by a cold breeze from the north. Time hung heavily on their hands, especially as the conditions pre vailing on shore at the upper quarantine station were different. Time did not hang heavily with Health Officer Jenk ing and his staff of doctors. From early looming until late at night they labored ceaselessly. Dr. Jenkins arose early find at noon left for lower bay on the cutter State of New York. He was accompanied by the quarantine commissioners. Late in the afternoon Commissioner Allen returned with the disheartening news from the stricken vessels, leaving the health officer down the hay. The officers did not return during the day, but sent ashore a mes sage ordering the pest boat Edson to re pair to the stricken steamers at once. Bhe will probably remain there until the tholera ia effectually stamped out. On lier arrival Dr. Talmage, who was on fluty from early morning, directed that the dead be removed to Swinburne island ind there cremated. The sick were (Tausferred to the Swinburne island aospital, and as dispatch must neces larily be used in the case of the Nor mannia, her steerage passengers were iie?t removed on the transfer boat Will, jpm Fletchner to Hoffman island and the disinfection system started on them. srw*^' ... •V'§/|V^ I i:^. i! (F r'^fep pi I Dr. Jenkins' visits to the Rugia and Moravia were short. He also visited the hospital islands, and in the afternoon several officials of the New York city health department steamed down the bay on a tug to see him. The police patrol reported early in the day for duty and warned all passing vessels to keep a safe distance. Masters of vessels of all descriptions begin to realize the gravity ©f the situation and give the pest ships a wide berth. Dr. Jenkins had promised the newspaper men that he would see them during the afternoon, and at 9 o'clock they are still awaiting his return from the lower bay. The foregoing facts show that the outlook is dark and all hands are prepared for a long siege. As to the probabilities of the disease getting into the country there need be no alarm if the present precautions are carried out MORE CHOLERA VICTIMS. Three More Deaths on Board Quarantined Vessels at Sew York. NEW YORK, Sept. 5. —The Normannia has three new cases, one of which died. He was Otto Engle, aged 80 years, one of the crew. The other two cases were Wilhelm Queur, aged 19 years, and Theodore Zimmzek, 23 years, both of the crew. The Rugia has three new cases, of which one died. The other cases are Hendrik 3terr, aged 5 years Joseph Pjekoska, aged 80 years Johanna Buss, aged 54 years. These three peo ple were of the families of other pa tients which preceded them and have been isolated since arrival. On the Moravia there were no new developments. Among the Norman nia's passengers on Hoffman island one new case was transferred to the hospital on Swinburne island. There was one child died during the day, aged 5 years. The fifty special physicians, who will inspect the city with the view to ward ing off the cholera or any other infec tious disease, were sworn in this morn ing. They began work at once, first visiting the thickly populated tenement disti icts. MUST BE QUARANTINED. All Vessels Not Afloat Thursday Included in the Circular. NEW YORK, Sept. 2.—Secretary Foster has received the following telegram from Collector Hendricks at New York: Referring to last paragraph of "Circular 150," the quarantine circular, shall I de tain vessels in quarantine that are not en tered, but are passed by the health office, until special instructions are received by the department, and will such detention apply to cabin passengersf Assistant Secretary Spaulding caused the following reply to be sent: Circular 130 excepts vessels afloat at date of circular. Any vessels within the exception and passing quarantine will be entered in absence of information received after they pass health officers, that their entrance is likely to Introduce cholera. FIRST OF THE SERIES. New Opening of the Fistio Carnival at Orleans AY on by McAuliffe. NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 5.—The battle for the lightweight championship of the world and $20,000 in purse and side bets was won by Jack McAuliffe in the fif teenth round. The fight, though short er than expected, was an exceedingly hot one. Myer had the advantage in the first round or two but soon suc cumbed to the fierce rushes of the Will iamsburg lad. Although the fight was not begun un til y o'clock or thereabouts, the Olym pic club was besieged before 5 p. m. by hundreds of men who live in this city and all parts of the Union. It was not an agreeable day by any means, for the rain came down in torrents at frequent intervals, but that little thing had very small effect on the enthusiasm of the visitors to the city residents thereof. Before 9 o'clock the arena was un comfortably full of men who paid $15 for box seats, $10 for lower seats and $7.50 for seats in the galleries, and when ex-Mayor Guillotte made the formal an nouncement that a contest for the light weight championship of the world was about to take place he received a rous ing cheer. As the ex-mayor finished his brief speech Professor John Duffy, the official referee, climbed through the padded ropes. There was a howl of pleasure. The men weighed in a few minutes before 9 o'clock. The limit was 138 pounds. Myer scaled at 137 1-2 and McAuliffe 137 3-4. DANIEL DOUGHERTY DEAD. The Silver-Tounged Orator of Democracy Dies at Philadelphia. PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 5. Daniel Dougherty died shortly after 8 o'clock p. m. Daniel Dougherty was born in Phila delphia, Deo. 17,1836. While a child hit mother died and his father married again. It was then that young Daniel left home and began his struggle. His early life was a series of battles for existence. In his 18th year he made his rea start, in life by entering the law office of William and Samuel Badger. Two years afterward he became prominent as a Democratic speechiuaker, and in 1840 he was admitted to the bar. In 1859 he was the acknowl edged leader of the Douglas party in this city. In the presidential election that placed Lincoln in the White House for the first term the Dougla* party in Phila delphia polled nearly 90,000 votes, which was due large"/ to Mr. Dougherty's earnest efforts. Mrs. Harrison's Condition. WASHINGTON, Sept. 3.—The almost daily publication of accounts about Mrs. Harrison's alarming condition of fiealth was brought to Private Secretary Halford's attention. He said: "Mrs. Harrison's physical condition has im proved but her nervous condition has not kept pace with her physical im provement. Her illness, caused by over taxing heraelf in the performance of her official and domestic duties, left her suf fering from nervous prostration." The fifth Texas district donvenlion has renominated Congressman J. W. Bailey. Henry Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts, announces himself as a candidate for the federal senate. The Democrats of the Eleventh Mis souri district have renominated John O'Neill for congress. At Independence, la., Nancy FTawkw trotted a mile in 2:05 1-4, beating her own record by a full two seconds, The Democratic congressional conven tion of the Third Minnesota district renominated O. M. Hall for confess. MINNESOTA NEWS. O. M. Hall has been renominated by Third district Democrats. Work has commenced on the electric railway connecting St Paul and Still water. Judge Kelly has decided that the Commercial bank, of St. Paul, may re Eume business. The custom collections at St. Paul for August amounted to $20,000 and the revenue to $224,000. Republicans of the Seventh district have nominated Henry Feig, of Kandi yohi county, for congress. James W. Lawrence, of Minneapolis, has been nominated by the Democrats of the Fifth district for congress. Minneapolis has two girl burglars aged 15 and 16. They-were captured coming out of a residence, loaded down with pluuder. A. Detle, a shoemaker of Jordan, com mitted suicide by hanging himself in his shop. Domestic troubles are supp6sed to be the cause. Scarlet fever iB so prevalent in West Duluth that the opening of the Fair mount, Irving and Longfellow schools has been postponed. Lightning struck the barn of Gustav Hartkopf, near Ortonville, burning the building and killing fi ve horses and thirty-five or forty head of sheep. Tho survivors of the battle of Birch Coolie, fought against the Indians in 1802, held a reunion at the Merchants, hotel, St. P.iul, to celebrate its thirtieth anniversary of that event. A meeting of grain dealers of South era Minnesota aud Northern Iowa was held at Winona last week. Tho object of the meeting was to fix grades and transact other business preparatory to handling this year's crop. The new directory of Winona, just issued, contains 8,000 names, an increase of 600 in two years. Using the'mul tiple of 8 1-2, customary in this kind of calculation, the population of the city is now 20,000, as against 18,543 two years ago. M. U. Bower, of Maukato, employed on the farm of A. Clark, just west of Redwood Falls, was struck by lightning and instantly killed and two msn stand ing near him were knocked senseless and terribly shocked. Two horses were ah killed. The government has bought out all the contractors upon the river work in the vicinity of Hastings and will under take the job in person under the eight hour law. It will cost, probably, about double the amount paid under the old system. Advance sheets of Polk's new Duluth directory show 24,072 names, an increase of 1,932 for the year. It uses 2 7-8 as a multiple, showing a population of 69,207, an increase of 5,558 over hist year. This includes West Duluth, Lakeside and other suburbs. The "face in the glass" in the Catho lic church in Canton, is still ai rracting the credulous from far and near. Lnst Sunday not less than a thousand people visited Canton to see what some claim to be a picture of "Mary with the Child Jesus" in her arms. President Hill, of the Great Northern, has given his check to agents of a New York life insurance company for $136, 350 for a policy of $100,000 and an extra annuity beginning ten years from date of $15,200. This is said to be the largest single premium for life insurance ever paid in the United States. All the elevators belonging to the Lake Superior Elevator company and Union Improvement and Elevator com pany are now operated as private ware houses. This action results primarily from the annoyance and inconvenience caused the elevator oompanies by the action of the wheat investigating com mittee last winter. A pardon has been gran ten to Lloyd Porter, editor of The Prison Mirror. He was sent up in November, 1884, for murder, to serve a life sentence. While intoxicated he endeavored to shoot a man with whom he had quarreled, and hit and killed another man standing near, who was looking on. He is 35 years old and a printer. William Henry Allen, an inmate of the Minnesota Soldiers' Home, has re ceived notice that by the death of a brother in California, he has fallen heir to a large slice of an estate valued at from $10,000,000 to $1*0,000,000. A nephew of the deceased gets the larger slice of it, but as William Henry's por tion amounts to about $6,000,000, he thinks that by rigid economy he may manage to get along during the remain der of his natural life. William Cunningham, of Crookston, has a crab apple tree in his garden that is 25 feet high. Its branches spread over 30 feet of ground, and it has over 10 bushels of fruit upon it. From a limb 17 inches long 34 apples were picked. For a tree grown in Northern Minnesota this is a prodigious growth, and proves that fruit trees can be successfully culti vated in this region of country. Those who have seen the tree say -that it con tains more fruit than they ever saw on a tree of its class before in this state, or the Northwest. From three trees in his yard he expects to pick over 25 bushels of apples. Partial investigation of the so-called Canton window miracles has been made under the direction of Bishop Cotter by a priest who has devoted some time to scientific studies. The priest says a faint image of a youug woman, smiling and ehowing her teeth, appears in the lower left-hand quadrant, while to the right of this, very indistinct, is an object that appears like a doll. The priest explains the appearance of these images on the ground of molecular polarization, gome living image of a young woman having been cast upon the glass when it was heated in making. The action of gun l.ght on the glass has made clear the outline of her figure. The retail1 coal dealers of Brooklyn have decided to raise the price of coal 50 cents a ton, from $5.25 to $5.75. The New Jersey Coal exchange notified all dealers in Newark, N. J., that the price of Lehigh had been raised to $6, and free burning coal to $5.75. Ex-Secretary Blaine is negotiating for the purchase of a home in Los Angeles, Cal. It is probable that he will not re turn to Washington. He is said tq have reached this determination shortly after the death' tif his son Emmons, be ing led to it by the suggestion of friends on account of his health, and to make a change frome scenes fall of sad associ ation.
