announced this afternoon tnat from bacterio

Drlggs on the bodies of several suspected
cholera patients , there have been flvo deaths
from Asiatic cholera In the city of Now York.

All thcso cnsos were originally reported to
the health nuthorltios us auspeutod cholera
and have been under Investigation by the
physicians connected with the de
Xo ( lurftllaiiliig ItH diameter.
NEW YOIIK , Sopt. 14 Now that Asiatic
cholera has developed among tuo dwellers In
this city each man may ask his neighbor ,
"Well , what of III"
The spirit of tbo question would show no
moro thin that the spoukcrhnd half mastered
Uio elementary truths touching this disease ,
tvblch have been so carefully Iterated and rc-
llnrnlcd by Iho responsible person of Iho
press during many days past. Tbo question
would in.llcato that the speaker fully under
stood that the cholera is neither contagious
nor infectious , within the common meanings
attached to those wcrds. Mn this sense it is ,
to use the ImiRUigo of Prof. Virchow , loss
dangerous than dlpbtbciin.
This expression implies no ovorconfldonco.
It lies within en"h individual's power to as
sure his own personal safely almost beyond
n perndvunlure. lie has but to drink no
water , except such ns have been thoroughly
boiled , and lo cat no food that has not been
thoroughly nnd freshly cooked ; he will nb-
atnin froni butter nnd cheese , and may then
possess his soul In serenity. Cholera will
pass him by.
How Did It ( Jnlii HU IJiitrtinra ?
How did the cholera get in ] is the ques
tion on everyone's lip.
The health olllccrs1 fnces were puzzled ex
pressions when uskcd to solve the problem.
Disinfectants have been used with Invisti
band , both nt quarantine and in thu city ;
bapcnge has baen disjnfocteJ ; pa.ssone > 'rs
have boon detained even on healthy ships ,
and In tbo city stringent rules of cleanllnetib
have boon laid down und acted upon.
The houses of the dead are not under
quarantine in the sense of being t > hutup , or
ot Its tcnunts being prohibited to go and
como when nnd whore they plense. But none
goes or comes without tbo knowledge of the
director on duty. The medical sentinel
never loses sight for many hours at a time of
his charges. Ills Instructions nro most
tnlnuto , and his duties in a tenement full of
people most arduous. Ha Is to register in
the lirst place , under orders of his supyorlor ,
\ the name and aio of every person in tno
house , what they work ut und where. If
limy go out of the house ho is to keep the
sharpest Ii'nd of n looiiout for the first
Evmptoms ot dlarrhuii trouble , nnd on its
nppenrunco put tbo patient to bed , keep him
there nnd prescribe for him , whilu hurrying
word around lo thu Health board oflicc. Tno
closats in the house or in the yard are to bo
his especial care.
\Vorkol thu DUInfcctln ; ; Corps.
The disinfecting corps xvlll uo on tbo go
frotn tiouso to bouse all dav , nnd he Is'o '
direct their operations. All closets in the
yards. If a case of cboiera bus occurred , must
bo disinfected twlco dally , The doctor must
search every room In the house every few
hours to see thnt It'ls kept In order , and that
no refuse , garbage or oilier offul accumulates
iu collars , nulls or yards and that the bed
rooms nre properly ventilated.
The personal cleanliness of every tenant is
the special care of the sentinel doctor , under
orders from health headquarters. No family
must move out of tbo bouso wlinout n wi it-
ton permit. The instructions uro most
mlnuto should now cases develop In the
house , and If they are carefully followed , ns
they certainly will be , the seourgo will got
the worst of the light.
The summer corns of llfty tenement doc
tors wns recently turned Into an expectant
cholera sqund. The Idea < s to overwhelm
and stamp out the dl.soaso In each house , as
win done with the typhus on Its first nppear-
nnoe. That this could bo done was success
fully demonstrated In ISbO. The two doc
tors now nn duty In each Infected house
wilfvomain there until the danger of further
outbreak has Ilnally passed.
Oilier CIISVR I.ooUcil 1'or ,
Other cases are expected to develop from
scattered centers of contagion , but none in
the siinin buildings. Thnt U the way the
health oltlcorti propose to drive the cholera
from the city. Now It has got in und if
the cltlrcus will use reman und not
go Into n foolish , needless panic , they uro
sure lo succeed , though thev by no moans
undervalue the danger. Everything is being
done for an attack. The e > : olera hospital is
in order , and the proposed cholera camp , tbo
Mlo of wblch is yet tbo department's secret ,
can bo occupied oa the briefest notice.
There is no pnnio nnd no undue hurry at
Bnnltnrv headquarters. Kvoiy possibility ,
every feature of n cholera epidemic has been
discountenanced and provided against.
-t The situation U Identical with that of 180S.
when the oholeru suddenly appeared In three
or four widely separated places in the cltv ,
Then , as now , a licet of pint-no ships lay on
the bay. Hut the cases ot ctiolora Unit brolio
out in Now York bud no connection with
quarantine , und the real origin ot the pluguo
wns never discovered.

She died In collapse.
Other Dcntlis Orcnr.
ThoJUth ease Is said to bo that of Minnie
Lovlngor , a child , who died September 11 , at
411 Hast Forty-sixth street. There have
been other cases of which the Board of
Health liavo not miulo an olHelnl report. A
colorea waiter , frcsb from Newport , was
seized witn cholera morbus , so It was
thought. In a First avounu boarding
tiouso three days ago. A surgeon from the
Presbyterian hospital refused to take him
away In bis ambulance and the Health de
partment's sick wagon was sent for. Ho
died on the way to the rcccptloa hospital.
It Is now believed thnt his death also may
bnvo bocn duo to Aslntto cholera , but the
Board of Health shows that it docs not share
that belief Oy not putting the bouso in which
ho was taken ill under quarantine.
It was said at police headquarters this
afternoon that the dlscaso hnd been brought
into llio city bv butchers tailing mcnt to the
quarantined Hamburg steamers , but this
could not oo supported.
It was later determined to .keep the chil

Thcro wns no oftlclnl report received at the

QiuiuxTiNK , NiYOIIK , Sept. 14. The
greatest excitement in the station down hero
toniL'lit was the report of theilve cases of
cholera which had taken place in Now York.
Intense surprise was oxpro < sod ut the news
by tbo oflllcln'.s , and lr. Jenkins expressed
himself us conlldcnt that It tiail not passed
quarantine.Ho said all bagzago was
thoroughly disinfected , not only slnco the
cholera had become epidemic in European
ports , but aver since the typhus fever. Ho
said that it was quite possible for a per-
knn viqltlnir 11 nlin'nr.l MMtlnnt np lininttnl tn

party without feeling any of the effects him-
Bolf. Uogurding the length of time It was
uocossnry to keep people In quarantine for
fear of developing , Dr. Jonklns said that
opinions differed from 11 vo to twenty days.
Ho sa\v no reason why Ilia cholera should
not bo effectually stamped.out in New York
If they ara as successful la Dealing ulth It In
thu city as the health oflloors had bocn in

Dr. Jenkins concluded the interview by
running up tohis , residence , saying , as lo : as
cended the ills-lit of stairs : ' 'Thoro was an
other ease of cholera on the Scnndla. See

Soocml to THE BnE. ] I paid a second
visit to M. Pasteur today at G arches , in the
environs of 1'nrts. The first time I had gona
was on Friday to ask hU advlco about being
inoculated for cholera. Today tny visit waste
to toll the savant the results ot my inocula
tion nnd to ask him to glvo tno what 1 may
call n medical passport in fact , a letter
signed by him asking the doctors to help mo
in every way they could nnd to announce to
him mv immediate departure for Hamburg
to test the provcntatlvo qualities of cholera
Inoculation as far as possible.
M. Pasteur's lirst questions were about
the symptoms I had experienced , and If I
hud fully reported them to Dr. Houx anil
lr. ) Hoffklno. Then wo ontorodi upon tbo
question of my visit to Hamburg nnd the
tests I proposed to undergo thoro. At first
bo was disposed to consider that the ease of
ono man would not provo much. When I
told turn that I proposed drinking the Elbe
water , being shut up with cholera patients
and taking no precautions , ho admitted that
that would bo u test , but ho did not consider
such a thing would bo tried , "for , " ho laid ,
"human life Is sacred. "
rnstour AdvlHes Caution.
Nevertheless I porslstnd , snylncr : "But M.
Pasteur , you have oxnrossod your utmost
confidence in tbo remedy. You have injected
cholera into the Intestines ot animals thnt
have boon inoculated anil otbcrs that have
not been. The latter have died nnd the former -
mor Imvo lived. Then why should not a
rnun ! "
AT. Pasteur , who has n most sympathetic
nnd gentle disposition , was , I could see , try
ing to piovent mu from tak'tig too great
"Well , " said M. Pasteur , after a pause , "I
firmly bollovo that no barm would radio to
you , but the truth Is that no subcu
taneous inoculation has yet been found in
fallible. You .should take precaution. "
"But would it not be of utility as n proof
If I were to Immure myself with cholera
patients , nnd bo perhaps able to show that
those around mo having boon under tbo
same corcumstanccs as myself dlod , whllo I
alone remained allvol"
At first M. Pasteur did not quite under
stand mo , nnd asked mo to repeat the
question. When I bad done so ho replied
with vivacity :
"Yes , that would bo of actual practical
and physical value. I don't say that it
would convince scicntitlc men , but it would
certainly DO un exceedingly Ion ? way in
showing the cftlcicney of inoculation , nnd if
I could show u series of such cases that
would DO all the better proof. "
Death Would I'rove'I.lttloT"1
"And if 1 should die ! "
' 'Well , " said M. Pasteur , raising his eye
brows , "that , I am afraid , would show thnt
oar Inoculation was not worth anything. "
"But might It not maan that perhaps tbo
dose wus misunderstood or that the time
allowed for Inoculation to become provuuta-
tivo bad not been discovered ? "
"I am afraid not , " said M. Pasteur. "Havo
you road thr letter I have written you ! "
i had. The onvclopo was addressed "To
the Correspondent of tbo Now York Herald. "
Tbo letter was written by M. Pasteur him
self In the very fine , upright , closely lettered
style bis friends are familiar with. It reads :

While the corridors were teeming with
newspaper correspondents on Tuesday morn
ing nt DJtfO o'clock , I again presented mysClf
for inoculation to M. ilotfklno. Thcro I bad
un opportunity of conversing with M. Mus-
nil , un elderly man of exceedingly robust
constitution , who has shown remarkable re
sistance to tbo viras and has scarcely had
any pain nt ull.
M. Hoffklno explained it by saying that
elderly men resist the virus much batter
than lustier and moro activa persons.
My llrst Inoculation symptoms bo considered
rather severe , but thnt bo considered a good
sign. The injection this time was made on
tbo right side Instead of the loft , but in tbo
same place as tbo last , half wuy between tbo
lower rib nnd hip bone. Tbo operation you
already know about ,
"You will have a much higher tempera
ture this time , " said M. Hoffklno , und I hnd.
Having given the details of my llrst Inocula
tion , I will only give tboso of tno second

In the first place , the muscular pulim. al
though present , were less than on the first

condition that for twenty-lour hours I a to
nothing and consumed but liquid food ,
I had also ono attack like a kind of very
mild ague. This second inocula

Special to TUB BB.I Slnco the rumor
is still going the rounds that King Cholera
roignj tn Paris , It Ik' necessary to give the
Ho to it It U a ridiculous falsehood. The
sanitary condition of Paris Is good. From
noon yostordav to noon today there have
boon twelve deaths from choleraic dlseuie.
In only two eases wns true cholera observed.
In tbls connection''recollect ' ' that the popu
lation of Paris is 12,700,000. Under those
conditions , now can it bo truly said that
cholera is epidemic born ? Foreigners may
como to Paris in the most safety as every
sanitary measure that It is possible to tuko
has bocn taken. The moment n ease Is re
ported by a physician the patient is Isolated
nnd an hour after the house is disinfected.
The authorities here have not lost their
heads. They oxhioit remarkable coolness In
all tbat they do. They know tholr reputa
tion is at stake. -
I repeat with alt candor that a sojourn In
Paris offers not tholslightost risk to nny one.
Visitors may como and have no fear.
All Are Pipl'slng Stunhopr.
Tbo courageous stop tanon by our coworker -
worker , Mr. rienry Stanhope , Is still the sub
ject of conversation throughout Paris. Mr.
Stauhopo Is now too hero of tno hour. Tnis
afternoon I went to the Hotel do Figaro ,
wnero tbo editors of the city gave him a re
ception. Ho had to listen to many compli
ments on his courage. Everybody wished
him success. It is * the unanimous opinion
that thp action of Mr. Stanhope in risking
inoculation with the cholera germ Was an
honor to the journalistic fraternity.

Uiirducr of Washlnpton , Dougherty of Now
York nnd Trudoau of Saranao had a consul
tation at the president's cottnga this morning
in regard to Mrs. Harrison , and at its close
issued the following statement :
The primary d'sonso Is pulmonary tubercu

Lieutenant Parker said this morning :
"Tbo president will remain wltn Mrs. Harrison
risen till she gets bottor. Ho has no other
plans whatever. "
It is therefore opparont that the presi
dent's stay hero u IndcUnlto. The phvsl-
clans , it Is said , have quietly Intimated to
tbo president that thoto is n strong
probability of n fatal result. The
president rarely leaves Mrs. Harrison's bod-

of the invalid with a professional attendant.
Itusscll Harrison and Mra. McICeo , the presi

operation will bo performed this afternoon.
Sorrow nt Washington.
WASHINGTON' , D. C. , Sept. 14. News from
Loon Lane wns awaited with tbo deepest
concern In Washington after the publication
tbls morning of tbo disquieting statement , of
Mrs. Harrison's condition , contained In the
Assoclatod Press dispatches from there , but
few persons wore prepared for tbo alarming
news In the physicians' bulletin mndo public
this aftsrnoon. On every side were to bo
hoard expressions of the deepest sympathy
with the nfllictod lady and n gloomv fooling
was manifested throughout the ofilcinl
Mrs. Harrison has endeared herself to the
people of Washington through bcr raanv
lovable traits , so that thev are mora than
ordinarily interested In her welfare.
Itfstnil Onlc'tly Online tliu Day.
The best that can bo sain of Mrs. Harri
son's condition tonight is that it Is no worse
than It wns this morning when the bulletin
was issued. Sbo rested quietly during the
day aud hnd several short imps , which failed ,
however , to refresh her to any noticeable
extent. Sbo seems to suffer principally from
exhaustion. Her physicians ECO to It that
she has as much relief as possible from physi
cal pain and employ every knoun method to
chnor her up. It is gratifying that no moro
unfavorable symptoms manifest themselves
All the patient's friends now roallzo that
any complication is attended with the great
est danger. Mrs. Harrison's vitality Is at a
very low ebb aud cannot successfully resist
further inroads. She has been confined to
her bed since last Wednesday , and has grad
ually declined in strength. This condition is
partly duo to the two operations rendered
neccssavv by the accumulation of lluld IP the
chostuavity. Tbo llrst operation took place
on , Friday last and the second on Monday of
this weak. It Is feared that still another
will Dt ) necessary in a day or to. . These
operations , however , afford only tomj-orury
relief. They are usually followed by a sen&o
of exhaustion and depression , Mrs. Harri
son has stood thorn both very well , ana this
has been one of the few favorable features
of the ease during the past week.

At 0 p. ra. Dr. Gardner had just concluded
an examination of Mrs. Harrison. He bus
expressed himself to tbo family as being
somewhat encouraged at her condition. In
response to inquiries of newspaper men , ho
said : "Weil , I think there is a slight im
provement In Mrs. Iinrrlson'o condition to-
nigtit from the fact that she is resting
quietlv ; thnt her respiration is not qulto as
labored as It has bocn , and because lluld lias
not gathered in her chest as rapidly as be
fore. "
Ho added that bo did not care to go further
into the details of the easo.
From olhor sources' it Is learned that an
other operation will bo necessary tomoirow
unless a decided Improvement should occur
in the meantime.
The president received several telegrams
tnnigUt from personal friends expressing
sympathy for Mrs. Harrison nnd asking for
information about her condition.
Midnight There has been no material
change in Mrs. Harrison's condition since
