the weather Is still cool and unsettled. Many

instead of north , neglecting Do Anvillo and

The growing bitterness between Franco
nnd Italy Is not likely to bo mooted away by
KIgnor Crispi's latest feats of diplomacy
Fired by the example of his master , BIs-
inurck , the Italian premier lias blossomed
/ out in the character of a crude , frank , plaln-
npeaking statesman who scorns his political
hand , Long practice and genius makes the
part easy enough for the Iron Chancellor to
play , but it hardly fits Crispl , who Is a novice
jittlio business. His clrculai s on the Mnssownh
question nro full of gall and perilous rccrlm
limtlon. Crispl can't forgot or forgive the
French abolition of the capitulation of Tunis
nnd takes great pains to asslinlluto that act
whh his own cool usurpation of supreme
judicial authority of the Red sea port. So
far Franco has not admitted the claim and
lias approved the refusal of the French-
Creek subjects to pay taxes to
the Italians in Massowah. To yield
would , of course , bo to acknowledge
the right of Italy to grab Massowah. Before
Franco does that she may glvo Crispl a great

The strike of the Paris "navvies" which
began a few days since has spread until now
1'J.OOO hands are idle and buildin g through
out the city Is threatened with Interruption.
The navvies or torrassiers , as hero called ,
liavo very definite plans. They seem to obey
the mot ordro given them by the socialist
lii' mbcrs of the Paris city council. The
rhief Instigators are Cltben Vatllant , the
DlanquUt , CHI/cn Jaffran , tbo posslbillst ,

tinuutcd by n Paris paper the other night
that the ringleaders of the strike nro taking
bribes from Germany , but this seems non-
tense. If the strikers have foreign
prompters they are far more likely to
lo In Belgium. The aims nnd reasons
the navvies' strike may bo gathered
from an interview with JulTran. "At pros-
-lit the torrasslors , " says Jaffran , "eorn , 4 }

J5 centimes an hour in Paris. Navvy work
is paid much better in England , whcra they
onl' ' work fifty-four hours a week , and are
o'tnn housed Into the bargain. " Since
then several bosses have offered to
tabu back the men on those terms and
the offers have been rejected. The navvies
now hold out for 0 franks and u working day
of nine hours. They hope to drag the ina-
Boin , zinc workers , carpenters , joiners and
the whole building trade Into the movement.
Meanwhile they have secured the alliance of

The first international tuberculosis congress
gress on record has just Broken up a marked
new departure in medical science. Close
upon Hvo hundred doctors from every quor
tor of thu world huvo been discussing tuberculosis
culosis for a week and , strungo to say , or
leading points , were practically unanimous
The central lessons all teach nro , boll youi
milk -.veil , huvo your meat well cooked
Alter the congress I interviewed the leadlnp
niHtcra ) beginning with the president , Dr
Chouvcuu , a big masterful old gentleman
with u handsome likeness to the eldci
"Tho subject Is Vast , " said he , "but pu
your questions. "
"Well , " said I , "what now fact has beet
revealed ut the congress ! Have wo comi
pity nearer fo curing tuberculosis ! "
1 Little absolutely new is revealed I , '
replied Chouveau , "but many thread
of valuable knowledge have been gathers
up. Much has been made certain that wa '
uncertain. Ono of the most rcmarkabl
fu ts to rcc til in the virtual uuamlty of congress
gross in r.dmittin tiio contagious nature of
tubcrcDlosls. and the possibility of Its transmission -
mission from human beings to animals or
vice versa. I believe , Indeed , the only doctor j
who disputed the point of the practical Idenn
tlty of tubcrclosls in the case of
men , women and cattle , now acknowledges
his error. With my pupils I have done
something to disseminate this knowledge , "
Ho might have said with Drs. Vlllemln
and Veronall , that ho had done almost
"Having established so much , " continued
the doctor , "wo next came to the con
clusion that , though hereditary may ,
In many instances , explain consumption ,
in an immense number of cases , the most in
tcrcstlnif , of tubcrclosls , namely consump
tion , Is traceable to diseased milk or meat.
Our great enemy Is the cow. Of her brother ,
the ox , the great proventatlvo is to boil your
milk thoroughly and cat your meat well
dono. It Is qulto a mistake to imagine
that drinking blood or eating raw meat
Is good oven in nmicnm. The
case of u lady , Indeed , Is
quoted who died in six months from con
sumption , simply through drinking blood
taken from a magnificent prize ox , which
had traces of tuberculosis. Boiling milk or
cooking picat thoroughly docs not do-
slroy the qualities of either , though
it may make both less digcstable.
The meatof tuberculosis is not always viru
lent. The Indeed the proportion of cases
which will bo affected Is , Judging from many
experiments wo have made on Guinea pigs ,
about two to ten. Of course , too , all human
beings uro not equally liable to ect the dis
ease. The llrst great practical result of the
congress was the publication of a decree as
similating tuberculosis to other diseases which
justify the seizure and destruction of cattle
bjjtho meat Inspectors. Pigs gettubercuosis ,
by-the-bye , but they seldom die. I must con
fess the congrcs s was weaK , New Ideas and
subjects were conspicuously rare , but ono
authority , M. From ! , read un interesting
paper , showing that in one-quarter of the
cases treated at certain sanitariums ,
cures were obtained. The patients
were shut up in n particularly healthy build
ing and obliged to obey their doctors blindly.
Good air was the chief curative , in fact , so
far as I know , pure air is almost the only
agent to hope much from.
"Yes , " said Chouveau , "tho possibility of
forbidding the marriage of consumptives was
raised In passing , but wo are not ready for
such u radical step as that. The congress
has done an immense service. The doctors
nro making great strides In the study of
Dr. Peter , secretary' the congress ,
agreed with these views and spoke enthusi
astically of the progress of the congress.
About ono hundred of the 450 members are
foreigners , ho said , from both the old and
new worlds. "Tho first thing I learned at
congress , " ho added , "was the importance of
pure milk. Only keep to that rule and ono
of the great causes of tuberculosis will van
ish. Another valuable lesson learned
is , consumptives should not shut them
selves in stuffy rooms or sleep with
windows closed and lighted flrcs , wrapping
themselves up If necessary to avoid the chill.
Then , wo huvo now settled that the disease
is contagious. These results wo owe Jlrst to
Villemin , next to Chauveau , thirdly to Koch ,
who discovered the Bacillus by which tuber
culosis is transmitted. The importance of
the congress may bo guessed when I toll you
the cases of tuberculosis had increased nearly
2o per cent in the last twenty years.
Dr. Villemin , who was elected chairman of
the second tuberculosis congress which Is to ,
meet in Paris In 1800 , kindly gave n whole
hour to a description of the subject with mo.
"Toll mo the result of the congress , "
"Ono serious scientific result , " replied
VHlomln "has been the
, bringing to
gether of so many doctors and help
ing them to know to what point
medical science had reached , what wns new
In their own researches and what was old.
The papers read may not have been alto
gether novel , but for the nrst tlmo they
directed the attention of the public to the
chief causes of tuberculosis. By tubercu
losis , inlnd , wo mean not alone
consumption , but the various other
forms of the same disease meningitis ,
humors , scofula , and even peritonitis. These
nro now admitted to bo tuberculosis. The
disease Is very communicable. How !
Through the digestive organs or blood , by
Inhalation or inoculation , or by the germs ob
tained in the saliva. For Instance , wo have
inoculated n number of cows , rabbits and
guinea pigs with scraps of saliva. Many
took the disease and died with thn same
symptoms ns human beings. Men and
women nro constantly giving tuberculosis to
cattle and getting It back through meat and
milk. This Is how many happen to bo con
sumptive who are engaged in the dairy.
They cough and spit on a bundle of hay and
the cow cats the hay and gets
the disease. The cow is milked
and some drink It and are
apt to take the disease she gets consumption.
Many strong people , of course , escape , aud ,
- in a general way , the stronger the general
- health and constitution , the less likely Is tno
person to got the Infection , but the proportion
tion likely to get consumption is very largo.
Over one-fifth of the population of the world
dies of tuberculosis. In Franco alone 100,000
yearly perish. "
. "Is consumption hereditary 1"
, "Woll , oyrfntons ore very much divided.
Many have come to ISinU it is nothing but
acquired weakness makes soin ? aptcr to
catch it than others. These base their theory
on the rarity of cases of infant tuberculosis ,
I myself am inclined to think s.it
may sometimes bo inherited. The
danger of the contagion of saliva
" is a great point to guard against > ,
especially in the case of poor people that lathe
the rast majority. Deaths by consumption
are very common in the barracks and in all
confined unhealthy places thomort all ty result -
ing is unusually largo. For cxample.amone
those line fellows , the gardes republicsues ! ,
who spend a longer tlmo than
the troops in the barracks.
Yes , undoubtedly , tuberculosis , mid baccllus ,
nro now known to bo an agent In transmit
ting disease. All prcvcntatlvo Inoculation
Is , so far , Ufcolcss. Wo cannot destroy tu
berculosis by tuberculosis. What wo need
Is some agent that kills baccilus. My son is
now making experiments in that direction. "
"Is there n cure for consumption ! " contin
ued Villemin. "Various cures have been sug
gested but the most nro merely palliatives.
Yet , I don't say the disease Is Incurable.
There Is hope In open air health resorts , such
as you have in America. Got into perfectly
puionlr , away from towns or oven villages ,
on some height , live In the air night and day.
The revivifying and oven ctiratlvo values of
this treatment nro wonderful. Excision of
the diseased parts is useless , n the malady

The Terrible ? Ilucord or the Bowery
Toncinc'iit Kin * .
Nr.vv YOIIK , August 4. The Ilrcmen at
work in the ruins of the Bowery tenement
house fire recovered another bodv , that of n
woman , probably Minnie Moyei son , a tailor-
ess , in the ruins of the burned building. The
flesh was burned to a crisp and the identity
of the woman can at b st only bo guessed at.
Later two moio bodies , app.uvntly of men ,
were dug out , making twenty dead In all ,
and the search is ended. All that were iu the
ruins have been found. One of the bodies had
so entirely lost all semblance of human shape
as to bo mistaken for a roll of burnt cloth.
The tbrco bodies were removed to the
morgue. The police guarded the ruins to
day and kept back the curious crowds.
Abraham Stern , the owner of the binned
building , will bury the dead ut his own ex
pense , inquiries were made of the police
this morning for Abrohn Schroder and Reu
ben Levlne. who are missing. The men were
wonting in the building and were supposed
to bo among the unrecognized dead.
Shortly after noon another body was found
in the building. It was that of a man. but
was unrecognizable. Among the bodies rec
ognized at the morgue to clay wns that of
Jennie Marks , fifteen years old , a tnllorcss.
Ono of the bodies taken from the ruins this
morning was identified as that of Adele
Swift. Surah A. Drum , another victim of
the fire , died this morning. That makes sev
enteen bodies now in the morgue. Ten bodies
ies remain unidentified , but later one of
these was recoiniizod as that of Jacob Fcni-
berg. Three other victims now in the hospi
tal will retovcr. At noon another body wns
taken to the morgue.

There have been' recently in Germany n
number of queer accidents. At Munich , for
instance , the stampede of four elephants
through the crowded sticets during a great
procession , is Boiv.uthlng new in the way of
accidents. The elephants charged through
the crowd lining the btiects , upsetting nnd
trampling upon a do/en people. Scared
originally by the. ole m fiom a locomotive in
the procession , the beasts bcrnmo frantic
with terror at the shrieks of the people
ple all mound them , and at the um
brella thrusts and knlfo cuts they received in
tramping through the crowd. Near Freini-
reppo , Ihe crowd was caught in a corner and
compressed , partly fiom fear and paitly by
actual contact with the elephants , almost to
suffocation. Then they battered down the
doors of the mint , but quickly came out of
that building ngum. In Hclligegoist street
they upset n cab at the Cafe Heck and scared
a man , who swung himself up on a big chan di
delier , which broke and nearly caused
n tremendous gas explosion. Finally , in
Buum street , they battered down the doors
of n small house , and , getting inside ,
wrecked the whole ground floor , while the
people were on the roof proi Ing and shriek

but broke through with a crash , which
nearly caused the people on the roof to jump

of the animals , and after hours of hard work
they wore gotten out of the house through a
hole in the wall.

Himi.v , Aug. 4. William's monarchlal Itin
cracy since his Interview with Prince Bis
marck atFriedeilchsruho has been modified
In most important directions. It was sup
posed that the emperor , in accordance with
family arrangements , would pay his re
spects to the queen of England during
her projected stay nt Baden. The queen ,
however , intimated through the Gorman
embassy nt London that she did Hot Intend
to go to Baden or any other plaeo on the con
tinent. Yesterday a formal note was sent J
by Prince Bismarck through the embassy ,
asking the queen to receive Emperor Will
iam , Who intended to visit England. The
emperor will arrive In London in November
during the winter session of parliament.
Under the present circumstances his majes
ty's visit to England will bo a state aud not
a family affair , and the queen must meet him
In London or at Windsor.
The foreign ofllco officials believe that
Prince Bismarck Intends to
peror William to England for the purpose of
conferring with the queen on affairs relutlng
to the late Emperor Frederick. The pope f'l
has been asked if the cmpeior goes to ' ' ( ' ]
the Vatican nnd remains ns n guest
of the pope for n day prior to his reception a
the qulrinul , whether lie will withdraw hii
objections. Mngr. Gnlimbcrti Is understood '
to have replied that the pope must maintain
his temporal rights. The nuncio continues
to urge the emperor to forego his visit to
King Humbert , ' unless the meeting takes
place at Milan or Murln.
Continuous arrests have occurred since
Thursday morning of suspected socialists in
Berlin , Hamburg , Leipsic , Frankfort and
every center. They nro supposed to bo asso
ciated with an anarchist plot in Vienna for a
simultaneous attempt to rob postoniccs and
bunks in Austria and Houthern Ger
many. The Berlin police bureau have
avoided arresting the leading social
ists , but under communications
from Vienna nro shadowing Austrian
anarchists. An imperial Austrian decree ,
signed by the whole cabinet , suspends trial
by jury in charges against anarchists
throughout five provinces. The decree Is to
remain in force for ono year. It empowers
without a judicial warrant , the arrest , im
prisonment and execution , not only of soci
alists , but persons sheltering suspects.
It forbids the sale , possession or manufac
ture of arms and ammunition and prohibits
public meetings or assembling of crowds ;
authorizes the police to make domiciliary
visits nnd to search newspaper ofllcos and
take summary measures regarding editors ,
nnd imposes stringent rules respecting pass
ports on the ariivuland departure of foreign
ers. Arbitrary as the decree appears , It Is
forced upon the government by anarchist
conspiracies. It Is bused upon the discovery
of extensive preparations to try to capture -
the government offices in which money is
stored , and which are the least protected. JI
