He put In ths greater part of hU time while there at the big Importing and Jobbing houses and witnessed the re ceiving of the first Importations ) of fine dress goods and woolens under the new tariff law. The great French and German manufacturers had prepared for the event and rushed millions of their finest goods across the waters. Importers were fairly burled under the avalanche , and as there was a scarcity of buyers on the market prices went far below 'what was anticipated , and the lowest price dress goods ever sold for In the United States was touched. The tariff reductions range from 40 to SO par cent , and the crush of Importations forced the market away below the readjusted prices , less the tariff reductions. Mr. Uennlson yielded readily to the temptation to buy , and he bought heav ily for spot cash , getting the cream ot the cargoes. His purchases included all of the finest and newest products of European looms In El Iks and woolens ( or autumn wear , goods that never could be profitably put upon this market before. They were shipped to Council Bluffs by through time freight and began to arrive yesterday , when sixty-one cases were received. Fifty-four cascj will get In today. These are now In IlennlFOn's basement , being unpacked and inaikcd ready for sole on Monday. On Mon day Ilennlsons have arranged for a display of these goods , and the ladles of Council Uluffs will have the first opportunity to ex amine and buy the finest dress goods madt In this world. The prices will be as great o surprise as the goods , reaching as much at SOc a yard less than last season's prices Ladles can see the goods today or tomorrow and make their selections In advance of th ; big sale commencing Monday morning Watch Sunday's Bee for prices. liiiprnveinriitn lit Mittmtrti.

A telegram was received today by Surgen General Wynun ot the Marine hospital service from Or. Duke , health ofllccr ot Cumberland , Mil. , announcing the death there last night of John P. Walther , u German Immigrant , with symptoms ak.n to Astatic cholera. Dr. Wyman wired Iho officer to Hold a postmor- tcin and report the results. Ur. Wyman said : "I do net believe that this man died ot Asiatic cholera. There Is now no cholera In Bremen , the port from which he U said to liavs come , and has been none , There has bitn no disease found on the other men from the Kibe now detained at Plttsburg , being held for further develop ments. " "What Is the situation w.th regard to the disease In Europe ? " wta asked. "U la rather on the Increase In Russia and Is getting over Into western Europe , but 83 far has been ecu fined to the mnst coutheru portions of that coast and U most prevalent In Auslro-llungary. This has kept It away from the ports whence the Immigrants came to these shores , and as there Is a rigid consular Inspection on that side , as well us n most thorough quarantine service en th. ? , side , I am absolutely cer tain that no cni'e of cholera has got Into America this year. There have been two cases caught at ipjarnnttne , but th < > y have not amounted to anything. It will be practically Impossible for the epidemic to get In unless there Is a relaxation of vigi lance en the part of health officers and con suls. By the 1st cf September we were practically over the worst of the pdnc : , and It looks as though the great danger of con tagion Is past. " NEW YORK , Sept. C. Nothing Is known at quarantine relative to the supposed cjses of cholera at Cumberland , Md. The steamer Elbe arrived during Monday night , and early Tuesday morning the steerage passengers were nil c refully Inspected and found well. Captain Von Qoessel and the ship's sur geon made no report of any sickness during the voyage.

Me- Candlcss , member cf the State Uonrll ol Health , and Health Officer Baker examined the suspects today. They think the man who OlcJ was suffering from cholera mor- bus or cholerine. To avoid any risks , how ever , the car will bo Vcpt in quarantine for another twenty-four hours at least. NEW YORK , Sept. C. Gustavo Schwab , agent for the North German Lloyd Steam ship company , on whose steamer , the Elbe. John P. Walther , who died at Cumberland , Md. , of supposed Asiatic chole'ra. waa a pas senger , scouts the Idea that Walther was a victim of that disease. "Had It been Asiatic cholera , " said he. "the disease would have rnatle Its app.arance long before. The period of Incubation Is iel- dom more than six days , ami BO either WaUlicr or the person from whom be con- tructed the disease should have developed on the steamer. " CELTIC-AMERICAN CLUB.

It is a wonder that so few cases of larceny are reported , as It Is Impossible for the officers to cover the city and do It prop erly. Nearly every day a residence Is broken Into and more or less valuables carried away. Wednesday evening the residence or R. 11. Buckard at Twenty-Iifth and F Street was entered ' by thieves. A watch , revolver and razor were the only articles , missed. A neighbor fright ened thieves away from the residence of Rev. Wheeler. Mr. Wheeler and hla wife are out of the city and two men were trying to pry open a back window when discovered. The same old complaint comes from the business men and citizens that there Is never an officer at the police station at night. Re peated efforts have been made to have a Jailer at the station at night , but the force Is so small that the Jailer Ins to also cover a beat. The telephone rings a dozen or more times every night but there Is no officer there to attend to It. Chlet nrennan Is a splendid officer and works about eighteen hours a day to keep matters in shape , but he hasn't got half enough policemen to cover the city properly. Cnttacn and CmilcntH Ilurnud. The residence of Joseph Potoch at Six teenth and Q streets was destroyed by fire at 830 ; o'clock yesterday morning. Mr. Potcch works at the packing house and giits up early. After ho had eaten his breakfast and gone his wife built up a big fire to heat some water. Sparks from the chimney set fire to the shingles and In a few minutes the cottage was a heap of ashes. The neighbors carried out a few things , but nearly every article was either burned or ruined. There Is $100 Insurance on the gocds and MOO on the house. This will cover all loss.
