Fire Island, whose action in selling
his proper; v to the state of New-
York lor (piarantine purpose!- has
aroused ahnarit hie plot w hich has
been veiy much exaggerated.
An Associated press correspon
dent asked M r. Sannnis to make a
statement of his views of the whole
affair and he said:
"The whole matter has been a
tempest in a teapot. I did what
any other man in my position
would have done. 1 was made a
fair offer for my property and I ac
cepted it. T hat is all there is in it.
Some o( the bay men exited by peo
ple who had political measures to
serve, became impressed more or
less with the idea that the establish
ment ot a ptat ant hie station at Fire
Island would injure their business
This is all bosh, and they now
know that it is so and practically
admit it. The political lenders led
them on for i rfect ami the demon
stration when the Cephus fust at
tempted to land the Normannia's
passengers was the result. There
is no need now to send troops here,
and on F'ire Island, in I !,il Ion, at
Islip and at May Shore till is unite."
The Normannia's passengers
have all been landed and will be
made as comfortable sis possible.
The Associated press report
ahout the vacation of the injunction
was the first intimation of the mat
ter received here, and was immedi
ately communicated to the passen
gers on the Cephus, who acknowl
edged the receipt of the good news
by loud cheers, the band at the
same time playing "Amcrka."
Soon afterwards Sheriff Darling re
ceived a dispatch from Governor
Flower instructing him to aid in
the work of landing the passengers,
as the injunction had been ordered
vacated. Senator Md'herson, A.
M. I'ahuer and I'. T. Wall came
ashore for the purpose of locating
rooms for the use of the weary pas
sengers. UfXS UK AT AX IXJl Ml l( IN.

Fire Island says the inhabitants of
the surrounding country are still
preparing to prevent by force the
lauding of the (piarantine passen
gers. In Day Shore the feeling is
at fever heat and there are threats
of treating Landlord Saimiis, who
sold the Surf hotel to the state
authorities for a refuge, to a coat of
tar and feathers. Justice of the
Peace James Coopi r says the hotel
and all its surroundings will bo
burned if a landing is attempted.
J;;dge Itarnard of the supreme
court of Ih'ooklyn today issued an
injunction restraining Governor
Flower, Dr. Jenkins and others
from landing the quarantined pas
sengers on Fire Island, This ap
plies to the town of Islip in particu
lar. Governor Flower arrived this
morning and immediately began
an investigation of the cholera
troubles. 1 le said the state would
take possession of F'ire Island at
once. He is prepared to take any
step, no matter how stringent, to
keep cholera away from New York
