THE PARIS SHOWERS They Provo a Blessing to Places of Amusement. THEATERS CROWDED NIGHTLY. Criopl Widening the Broach Between - twoon F < nco and Italy. THE STRIKE OF THE "NAVVIES.1 They Hope to Involve the Whole Building Trade. DOCTORS TALK TUBERCULOSIS. Adjournment of hc Great Interna tional Congress Ono of the Lend ing SavantH Gives His Views at Considerable Length. lOipi/rftfM ItXSliuJamra Conliin Hemiflf.l I'AKH , Aug4. [ New York Herald Cubic Special to THE Br.r : . ] When things at mospheric are at their very worst there is usually hope of their changing , but hero wo nro on the very eve of the grand semulno nrd though the sun does shlno occasionally , the weather Is still cool and unsettled. Many huvo given up all Idea of holiday flitting and it-signed themselves to nursing tholr Inllu en/its and iheumatisms by their own fire sides in Paris. Others have vanished south instead of north , neglecting Do Anvillo and Ostendo for an unwonted summering In Home or on the Hlvolra. Lastly , some urn taking snatches of pleasure between the Bhowers nt the Jardln ao Paris , the cafes mid the concerts In the Champs Efysees , which nro nightly crowded with Americans nnd Englishmen. The great attraction ut these temples of delight is the Boulangist unthems. Sums apparently fabulous are paid mine of the stars at the Ambassadours and the Polllon do la Hcrloge. Paulus gets $1GOO. monthly , and Bourgcs , his rival , nbout half s much ; while blatant divas who fol- Jew in Theresa's wake earn WOO to J.'OO. 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 deal of trouble. 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 , nul Uo Suonil , the Boulangist. It was in- 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 } JVuni's for ten hours' work , whereas men employed by the city of Purls are making 0 f r.tucs nnd 50 centimes. A man can't live on 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 carters and to-day wo nro expecting a poiKrnl strlko of our old enemies , the cab men , The strikers huvo been parading the itivets all the week , terrorizing workman ins. Who persist In working and destroying tools. s.ra The first international tuberculosis congress raid gress on record has just Broken up a marked new departure in medical science. Close ser upon Hvo hundred doctors from every quor rr tor of thu world huvo been discussing tuberculosis r311 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 d.ig Alter the congress I interviewed the leadlnp niHtcra ) beginning with the president , Dr Ir.n 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 , " added Chouveau. Ho might have said with Drs. Vlllemln and Veronall , that ho had done almost everything. "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 tuberculosis. " 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 , " said I. "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. i.J Many strong people , of course , escape , aud , - in a general way , the stronger the general - health and constitution , the less likely Is tno 10r person to got the Infection , but the proportion ro. tion likely to get consumption is very largo. o.Id 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. d.ut 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 ism 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 Is In the blood and crops out again in another place. " TWENTY IjlVKrl LOST. 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. AVI.N'I ) AX1) LIGHTNING. They Play Sad Ilnvoo In New York and Vicinity. Nnw YOIIIC , August 4.

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 ing. Ono elephant attempted to go up stairs , but broke through with a crash , which nearly caused the people on the roof to jump off. At lost the elephant tnmcr got control of the animals , and after hours of hard work they wore gotten out of the house through a hole in the wall. Ono specialist in crime recently raked in almost enough money to bo spoken of as a financier.

The 1'ope liiHlfitH on Maintaining Hit ) Temporal Bights Berlin Police Uenl Summarily With the AnarclilHlw. A * , r. . 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 accompany Em 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.

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 The Austrian socialists hold constant intercourse - ' | | course with the anarchists in Franco , Eng land , Swit/orland and America.
