QUAIUXTINE , S. I. , Sept , 15.-Thomembers
of the medical conference , appointed by the
Chamber of Commerce , arrived nt the sta-
lion this afternoon on bsard Millionaire
Hearst's yacht , the Vamoose. Mr. Hearst
cabled from Paris t'jal bo would be pleased
to place the yacht at the disposal ot tbu
physicians composing tbo conference. After
n short tnllt with Dr. Jenkins they ro-om-
barked , accompanied by thu health ofilcors ,
nnd stnrtcd down the bay to Sandy Hook.
The Travo of the North Gorman Lloyd
Steamship company arrived at 8:15 : with a
full list of cabin pnssengcrH. There were
no immigrants on board. She reported all
well. Shu W.H cleared and was permitted to
go up. At 8 o'clock yesterday she passed
the Bohcmiu , which is duo hero at midnight.
Much nnxioiy is being expressed bv Ibo
ho.illh ofllccrs for iho arrival of this boat , ns
it Is feared sbo has many cases of cholera
nboard. Dr. Jenkins , in peaking on Iho
subject , mild ho had no actual knowledge of
there being any dlscas ) onthohhip out he
added that bo was very suspicious. Dr.
Walker , deputy health ofllccr , says ono in
fant died of niorusmus on Ibo steamer
Wyoming this morning.

The htcatncr Wyoming will bo hold until
the completion of the bacteriological exam
The Hugln's passengers were removed
today to tbo New Hampshire nnd will ho
transferred thence to Fire island on the de
parture of the Norrnnnnia's passengers ,

The passengers' luggage is already stowed

It has been claimed that the death of the
child , Minnie Lovlngor , of111 East Forty-
sixth street , lust Sunday Is directly traceable
to four immicrant clrls who cnmo hero from
Antwerp on the Fricsland. Dr. Jenkins ovl-
dcnt.viloei nol pulfuiih In iho allocation and

Cable Special to TIIR BEU.J Thn Herald's
cholera-Inoculated correspondent , loft Paris
for Hamburg at It o'ulocK this evening.
Thlsls his statement before leaving :
"I feel parfectlv well igaln from the two
Inoculations , with tbo exception of a tender
ness and n certain pricking over the portion
of iho body where the ir.oculatlon spread.
I go to Hamburg with the solo idea of test
ing the Hoffkino cholera preventive. I go
with the knowledge nnd assent of
MM. Pustour und Hoffklno. Both
have assured mo that they will watch
with the utmoit interest the result of
my experiment , which , under certain cir
cumstances , they consider will bo of high
utility Panteur says physically nnd Hoffj
bine morally , It not mathematically. I have
Hutu doubt that If I conduct the tests in Iho
curtain manner already outlined , I shall
have gene irsorally so far ns to
prove the benelit or futility of
inoculation , so tbnt either people will accept
ii ns oftlclent or it. will be utterly rejected if
nm wrong , Hundreds of thousands will
doubtless wntub the progress of tbo test
with tbo keenest interest. It I dlo
thousands will bo saved the pain
ot inoculation. I I bank the Parisian
press for its extreme courtesy toward
mo. Tbo only regret I have Is thnt it
should have generally taken an over-high
estimate of my courage. The idea of bolng
Inoculated was , 1 admit , original , but I had
ascertained from Pasteur that there wns
litllo paiu , but no danger in it. I never
made any claim that there was any risk.
That was nothing. The dancer lies in the
termination of the Journey upon which I
start tonight.
Ho Iff liuiiml to Tote Tiilr.
"I propose to carry out Iho lest with the
most scrupulous vigor. I wa nbout to pack
up a bottle of qulnlna this evening , but
throw it out ngnln lest it might bo considered
as n medicine to arrest the possibility of con
tagion. Even this trifling act must in taken
us an index of my line of conduct. Once in
Hamburg , where I shall arrive Saturday , I
shall probably bo , as it were , in the prison of
disease , for It would bo impossible for mo to
carry out the lests 1 propose , and at the
same lime remain iu contact with the outer
world. It wus suggested to tne that such n
life will not bo gav. 1 believe that I am not
gome there to piny. It may bo that , In
terned as I shnll doubtless bo , it may not bo
easy to give you news so often ni cilpht bo
desirable. I can merely any thai 1 shall send
us often as possible. A number of Jour
nalists who take so great an Interest In the
development of the test have asked me
where the news 1 send will reach llrst. The
news which will interest them most will bo
sent to the Herald office. 'Moro detailed ac
counts will be sent later to the P.islour in-
.iiiiuio , 10 iU.M i-aaiour ana tioiiKino. VAU

- corre
spondent has received during the past few
days un avalanche of congrutulntor ? cards
and iclegrams , many from friends , bul tnoro
from persons he scarcely knew of , some in
French , others in English ; for instance : "I

Everybody Is with you. You want to cutcn

"Bon voyage , etquana vous reviendrez , nous

with tbo simple word "uravo" on them.
From n lady . as talented us

Cable Special to TUB UEK.J Continuing my
Inquiries into the health of the Altona troops ,
I went to the Paillo Malllo in Altona and
slopped al Count W.ildoraeo's rjildenco. He
was away , I was told , with Iho troops man
euvering In Mccklonburg.
"Tho troops , " said the oBlcor in charge ,
"aro all perfectly healthy and well cared for.
Wo can afford to laugh ut the panic around
us. Wo never had more than six or seven
cases In August. ie , In the Eiahly-llflh
regiment. "
The cases In Altona are evidently only
sporadic. My researches so far convinced
mo that ibe rumors about the spread
of the disease in tbe Ninlh army corps
huvo been much oxnveeraiod. Leaving
Altona this afternoon , I drove through Ham-
ourg , stopping and talking to people who are
busily carrying on their trades , all Out the
5,000 who are burled at Olsdorf und tha vic
tims at Eppendorf. At thU last place I saw
about thirty tents pitched in tbu Holds sur
rounding the ho niul.

They were kept as long us possible. "
"How do they deal with the r.orpioj ) "
"Five boards of rlaln deal are fixed
together , and aiixth serves as a lid. Tbo
people hero call thorn 'egg-boxe,1 lu these
the corpses are oranoSdotl in peal * or mud ,

Plenty of Trouble In Store.
The chief disaster dpos not consist in the
loss of 5,001) ) dy.spoplio stomachs ot all classes.
but in the comparative stoppage of tvade.
Ships cannot leave thojlurbor , and nobody
knows when this stnto o ! things will end ,
perhaps not before thej first frost ; this will
break m.uiy n proud bu.rcher.
The worst part of. thb'.town ' lies right in
tbe swampy district extending from IClos-
torthai * inland , inoluilint , Filenhorst , und
ending at Spaldlngstruisej next to the Berlin
lin stallon. , (
One authority whom I Interviewed connects
the disease with n pot theory , and says the
Hamburgers suffer universally of Inter-
mlltont fever. This wak'ons tholr stomachs
and thus they fall nn oa V prey lo the Invasion

Statement of I'acts. , Nob. . Sept. 13. [ Spar-lnl Tele-
pram to Tun One. ] This was Field day lu
thy Joint dUcusslou. Uoloro the speakers
had met the question win , among repub
licans , "Will Field ha nblo to hold his own
with Drynnl" Now ttin question nmoiiff
democrats Is , "Will llryan bo able to hold
his own with Field } "
The meeting was In tbo public square in
the afternoon. Thcro was n splendid nuui-
once nnd each ono listened with deep Inter
est. Hoth spo.ikers appeared In flno condi
tion when they snt down together on the
stngo. Bryan epoko an r.our and sat do'wn
with evident disappointment. Field In bis
reply went at him UKO a blacksmith with u
slodsro hammer nnd the crowd was decidedly
with Flclu f'.om beginning to close. Hrynn
maao smooth usriods nnd ronndud up each
climax In u manner as It to solicit applause.
But tlio upplauso came weak nnd Bryan's
face and manner showed thnt ho Knew It.
Field made no play for applause , but
rather tried to avoid It , nnd In a powerful
unu rapid manner point ted his nnta onlst ,
whllo tha rcpublicnti part of the audience
was dullgtuod. said tonight that It
wns the host of bait o.Torts Field baj over
made. Republicans feel Jubilant , and sny
that Field , while not n orator , is a
powerful debater and will grow strjiigjr lu
each discussion.
Bryan defoudod his record , and donlod
that ho wr.j n calamity how lor. Field made
sonia.splendid hits In defending the pro- :
psrlty of iho state and nation. old sst-
tler remarked that Bryan displayed tnoro
skill in dodciug nn argument than he did in
malting or answorliig one. Field crowded
Bryan on the Peck llgures , nnd Bryan retorted -
tortod that Peck was not a democrat.
Field insisted Bryan should explain tbo
Peck iiguros , but Brvan only smiled a ?
before anil denied thai POCK was a democrat.
Throughout the whole detuto Bryan was thn
tnoro eloquent and reauy with his woid . but
Field was the more aggressive nnd forced the
argument with more earnestness. U Is
the general verdict that Ttryan has mot more
than his match , and that he must use moro
argument and less llowcry speech if ho would
win tbo laurel of this rjntest.
