The Normannla's Passengers Wild With
Joy to Bo on Shore Again.
NEW YOKK , Sept 14. At 8:10 o'clock
last evening the last of the quaran
tined passengers of the steamship
Normannia were landed from the ex
cursion steamer Cepheus on Fire
island , the baymen having retreated
when the Sixty-ninth New York
muitia and the naval reserves ap
peared on the scene. The trouble is
thought to be over.
Great bustle followed the arrival of
the passengers at the hotel. Con
sidering the fact that 500 guests
arrived within five minutes , it was
natural that some confusion should
result. Everyone was good natured ,
however , and waited patiently until
assigned to their quarters. Such
progress was made by the. temporary
hotel clerks that inside of two hours
' all were comfortably located. No dis
tinction was made in the disposition
of rooms. It was all a lottery , but
there was no grumbling ; everyone was
too happy. Gray haired men jumped
about in the sand like boys. The second
end cabin passengers were put in the
west end and the first cabin the east

This rain has advanced late corn be
yond all danger from drought condi

intensity to damage the lowland crop
is greatly feared , as many farmers
place October 10 as the earliest date of
assured safety. The early plant has
matured finely and cu tting has already
commenced in many of the southern

potatoes are very poor. Tobacco , cot
ton and sorghum are in fair condition.
Fruit prospects continue to decline ,
and a very small yield is expected.

near here yesterday by an intoxicated
man. The rig was overturned and al

has been taken seriously ill with what
is considered Asiatic cholera. He was

was caused by baggage which came
over with the horses. His physicians
refuse to talk.

Cholera Beyond All Doubt.
All these cases were originally re
ported to the health officers as sus
pected cholera and had been under the
investigation of the physicians con

Hermann Biggs , who is in
charge of the division of
pathology and bacteriology of the
health department , at once began mak
ing bacteriological examinations. He
reported to the health department this
afternoon tlie result of his examina
tions and pronounced unhesitatingly
that the cases were Asiatic cholera
beyond any doubt.
Stern Precaution * Taken.
The physi ' ins of the health depart
ment have been unable to find out how
the cholera was contracted in each of
these cases. So far as they have been
able to learn none of the dead persons
came in contact with the cholera

CHABLES G. WILSON , President.
Last night was by far the worst
storm that the cholera fleet at anchor
at quarantine has encountered , and it
was a mercy that the cabin passengers
of the Normannia were allowed to
land on Fire island.
All during the night the southeast
gale raged , and at the hospital sheds
on Swinburne and Hoffman islands ,
the sick and dying spent wretched
hours , while even the nurses were un
To-day Dr. Jenkins announced that
he would almost certainly release
the Normannia's cabin passengers to
morrow. As regarded the cabin pas
sengers of the Bugia , he would , if
nothing developed , transfer them to
the New Hamphshire and from thence
land them on Fire island as soon , as
accommodations could be arranged.
In a communication dated September
1J , the cabin passengers of the chol
era stricken steamer Scandia addressed
to the Hamburg-American Packet
company the following :
We feel well , bodily and mentally , ever
since the beginning ol the voyage , so well ,
in fact , as if we had not pone through a
voyage of fourteen days of almost constant
ly bad weather , and this favorable frame of
mind has only been injured by reports
abounding with lies. We were not even
aware of the disease baing on board before
we arrived in this port , consequently there
could not have been a panic among us as
published. We therefore feel obliged to
emphatically object to the falsa reports.

CHICAGO , Sept. 15. The Illinois state
board of health held and executive
session at the Grand Pacific hotel to

Dr. W. A. Haskell of the Illinois
board , who presided , said that his idea
was that the state represented should
combine and , if necessary , establish
quarantine at the borders of the
territory included in the com
bination. This , , Toull | do away

Homeseekers' excursions ,
1892 , on August30 and Septem
ber 17th , a rate of one lowest
first class fair will be made from
eastern points to points on our
line for two homeseekers' ex
cursions. These tickets will
be sold at all the principal rail
way points as far east as
Buffalo and Pittsburg. Tick
ets will be good within twenty
days from the date of sale and
stop overs will be allowed after
passing the Missouri river. It
is expected that there will be
quite a large immigration of
intending settlers to Nebras
ka , northwestern Kansas and
eastern Colorado , during this
summer and fall. This immi
gration can be very largely in
creased by judicious advertis
ing and work by the various
communities tributary to our
line. It is therefor suggested
that sections proposing to pre
pare such advertising matter
for distribution in the east in
regard to the inducements
they have to offer the farmer ,
the business man and investor ,
should begin to get their ad
vertising in shape at as an
early a date as possible. In
case their plans contemplate
a , gooa advertising
man to distribute their matter
and attend to their advertising
generally , this departmentmay
be able to give valuable point
ers as to the best method of
doing the work.
I think it is desirable that
editors of the papers along
our line should begin agitating
the matter in order that the
people may be prompted to do
more or less individual work
with their friends in the east
in the way of sending by mail
such matter as the different
counties or districts may pre
pare in pamphlet form or in
the shape of extra editions of
their home newspapers giving
full information as to the re
sources and advantages , and
directing attention to the very
low rates that will be made to
enable them to come and see
for themselves that the repre
sentations are not really up to
the reality.
The company has recently
issued a pampniet in regard
to the agricultural resources
of Nebraska , which will be
furnished free to those who
may desire to mail it to their
friends in the east. This
pamphlet treats of Nebraska ,
northwestern Kansas and
eastern Colorado. I wish you
would present this matter to
editors at your place and also
to other parties who may be
interested in settling up va
cant farm lands of this state.
