At the meeting of the stjte board
of health in Chicago today Secretary
J. W. Scott snbmitteda report show
ing that of S.1.W school districts
heard from, liaving a total enroll,
ment of 73,01 pupils, C7.221 have
compliud with the onb.-r of the board
regarding vaeeitiation. Secretary
Scott says March 1 there were 2li in
fected centers in 21 stales. Later
advices show 83 centers in 11 addi
tional Mate. In Illinois, outride of
C'lieago, there have U'cii 61 Caites.
with 12 deaths. In Chicago, from
January 1 to April 21, there have
licn 'J'i2 eases. jew cases were dis
covered in the past week in 21 of SI
wards in Chicago, and CO cases are
being treated in" homes in 12 wards
of the eitv.
With the first breath of spring
conies news from widely separate
parts of the old world that last year's
germs of cholera have come to life,
in (iaiicia. near the Russian border,
several deaths have occurred, and
Spain has quarantined her ports
against vess Is coming from u:i in
fected region in Tort ugal. These re
ports are certain to be augmented by
others as warm weather approaches,
but it Is pleasant to know that all
civilixnd countries ure letter pre-
Jared to deal with this x-st than they
lave ever been in the past. Judging
feom the progress that has been
made within the past three year., it
is not improbable that the' time is
near at hand when cholera will lie as
easily handled as the ordlncrr fevers
that afflict mankind.
After tho Incidents of the past two
days In the extreme west rn contin
gent of the Coxey comtuonwcalers,
any sympathy that may have been
entertained for the movement is like
ly to rapidly vanish. Lawlessness
seems destined sooner or later to at
tend such a crusade. The St. Louis
Republic commenting on the advance
of the commonweal, remarks: We
notice in the protected district of
Pennsylvania a movement to get rid
of their idle element by sending it to
join the commonweal. It is m t ha d
to tnrn on paternalist ic crusade into
another. The bands following Coxey,
Kelly, I' rye ami the other captains
hare not the least idea of what they
go to Washington to get. The
groator number the rank and file be
lieve, if they believe anything, tint
congress will appropriate nioucy to
feed and house them. The protec
tionists can capture this vague pater
nalism. The lirst Coxev halt in
Washington can lie turned' into a Me.
Kin lev camp meeting with a little
blatherskitiug anil blntherskit .ng is
cheap. Such a headless, tailles',
purjKjselcss march will inevitably le
used by somoliody. It is a big. Iil'u.d
victim, actually begging to be har
nessed to a sellish pttrKsc. There
will be surprise, not if the protec
tionists or some other jtowerfiil in
terest in legislation docs, but if it
does not use the Coxey crusade to
fasten new burdens on the people.'1
The longer the trouble with Kelly's
army lasts the more apparent is the
weakness and vacillation of Governor
Jackson, of Iowa. He doesn't know
his own mind an hoar at a time. He
calls out the militia and sends them
home again. Some one tells him a
cack and bull story about impending
danger and the unfortunate militia
men are again double-quicked to the
front. He has shuttlecocked the
national guard back 'and forth so
often within the last week that the
members of that organization sleep
in full uniform with their gun be
side their beds.
His infirmity of purpose is visible
in other directions. One moment he
is assuring Kelly of his most dis
tinguished consideration; the next he
is issuing -all sorts of orders at the
behest of a railroad attorney. He is
as invertebrate as a jellyfish, and if
any trouble should arise from the
tangle that exists in Iowa the Hawk
eyes can place all the blame npon
their weak, feeble-minded, weather
cock governor. He is about the
worst gubernatorial failure of the
year, which is saying a good deal.

Aalemxk, Norway, April 20. The
Amiricau north jstlar expedition under
the command of Walter Wellmnn, has
soiled for the Ulaud of Spitzlergeu on the
steamer ItagnvoU Jnrl, which has been
chartered for the purposa of the expedi
tion. Experts here pronounce the steamer
to lie the best iceboat in Norway. The
aluminum boats that the expedition car
ries were greatly admired here for their
beauty, strength and lightness.
As the lUgnvold Jail left the quay on
her voyage to the far north the American
flag was hoisted at the foremast head and
salutes were fired. All the shipping in the
harbor was decorated with flags in honor
of the departing untie explorers. A
large fleet of small boats escorted the
steamer out of the harbor. Prior to her
dipurture u large number of cable dis
patches expressing well wishes for the suc
cess of the expedition were received from
the United States.
No Ariuii for Sons orVetcrnne.
Albany, April 0. Governor Flower has
vetoed the bill allowing Sons of Veterans
to curry nrms. Ho says: "The bill re
turned herewith includes associations of
Sons of Veterans, among those entitled to
parade with firearms in public but ex
empts them from auy liability to be called
out to the assistance of the National
guard. If an exception of this sort is made

would seem to lie no good reason for re
fusing the same privilege to any other
