BOMIUY , Sept. 19. Advices from the front
how that the \nrlous columns arc advancing
against the Mahmunds from Panjkora and
Shabkadur As yet they have met with no
Borlous opposition , but dllllcultlcs of trans-
liortatlon In a mountainous and almost path
less country are Immense. The most for
midable obstacle In thu way of lupld move
ment IK the lack of water.
The brigade of General Jeffreys has not
Joined In the advance. Yesterday It left
Camp Ann jet with sixteen companies of In
fantry nnd font1 guns. In order to reattack
the enemy at th village of Damotngoa. The
tincmy made n desperate resistance , but were
driven out Into the hills The British demol
ished their totters and captured 400 mule
loads ot supplies. As soon as the troops
began to retire from the vlllngo the enemy
rcnppeared In force. The retirement , however -
over , was effected with great precision , the
tintlvo troops behaving splendidly. Two
Sikhs were ' < Hl0d and fix wounded.
U Is now known that the enemy's loss dur
ing thu fight on Thursday last between the
Maliiiinnils uml the Second brigade of Gen-
cial Sir Hlmlon Blood in the valley north of
Annjet was \orj heavy. The tribes engaged
did not press the brigade during the retire
ment , but fiesh tribesmen appeared. Cap
tain Rider's company virtually owed their
lives to n guide , an Afrldl sergeant , who ,
when the Sikhs had exhausted their ammu
nition and weie desperately cutting their
way back through the enemy , dashed up the
bill undei heavy tire with a supply of car
tridges. He airlved just In time.
Lieutenant Watson was thrice wounded
while leading a handful of Huffs , who routed
n Inigo body of the enemy that was trying to
Htorm the village at which General Jeffreys
with his guns had taken up a position after
missing his main body In the gloom Thurs
day night. It appears that the enemy lost
380 men before they captured the Saragosl
police post. They burned allvp two Sikh
cooks whom they captured while out hunting
lor firewood.
The queen has sent the following dispatch
with reference- the reverse near Camp
Anajot ; "I am deeply grieved at the loss of
bo many brave officers and men. I earnestly
deslie to be Informed as to the condition of
nil the wounded. Thu conduct ot the troops

LONDON , Sept. 20. The Times this moui-
ing sajs :
The statement of the American press tint
the State department at Washington and the
British ambassador have received Instruc
tions to opin negotiations for n general
treaty nf arbitration Is at least premature.
It IH not Improbable tlmt the negotiations ,
which have never been broken off may be
resumed next month , when Sir Julian
I'auncefote lotiiius to his post , but It Is
difficult to see how n treaty of any piactl-
ral value can bo concluded so long ns the
Bonato maintains the attitude It dlsplajcd
When It lust discussed the question Sir
Julian Puuneofote will return to his post In
time for the conference of the Gperial Ilcrlng
eca commission ut the end of October or the
beginning of November. Prof. Thompson Is
now eiirouto. home and will start for Wash
ington next month.
Commenting on the communication from
the foreign olllce to tlie colonial olllce of
Mr , Sherman's letter the Standard sajo
"Tho correspondence ) shows that the British
government has a poifoct answer to the
complaints of the goveinmont ut Washing
ton and the careful reader can eawlly dis
cover In Mr Chamberlain's exposition the
basis of a serious Indictment ngalntU the
United States , not on account of Its high
handed treatment ot Hrltlsh coals but on
account of Its obvious desire to tompnss the
destruction 'of u Brit lull Industry and over
turn the Paris award. Whether In these
circumstances It wns wleo to agree to a con
fcrcnc" time will show. Possibly some good
will come of n friendly consultation , In the
meantime the MoKlnloy administration will
cultivate a mure conciliatory tone In Its
communications with European states. "
The Dally News , dealing with the blue

WASHINGTON , Sept. 19. ( Special ) 1'cr-
ons who enjoy the confidence of Pres'.dent
McICInlcy say guardedly tlmt many of the
published statements BH to Spa'it are true.
Two or three newspapers have recently out
lined the contents of the president's note to
the queen regent of Spain which Is to ba
delivered shortly by Minister \Voodfoid. The
note Is couched ! the most diplomatic way
and has had the careful consideration not
only of the president , but of those who Ktnnd
high In the world of diplomacy so far as
America Is concerned. A gentleman who has
the confidence of the president said : "I be
lieve that there will bo some trouble grow
out of the rote to the Spanish powers. It
will , however , be of a character plnc'ng
Spain entirely upon the offensive. I can
have no other thought but that America will
hovv Itself capable of writing letters of so
clever a character that wo will enjoy the
Bym-athy of all powers when the true status
of the situation comes to be known. General
Woodford's Instructions are of such a char
acter and so firm Is the president fixed In
his policy that there must needs be a good
deal of very readable : correspondence over
the Cuban situation.
Dr. George TJ.Miller has written a letter
\sslatant Secretary of War Melkeljohn
In which he gives some new views relative
to deep waterwajs. In the letter , which
will bo referred to the Deep Waterways com
mission. Dr. Miller says that nothing can
be moioltal to national development and
welfare than deep waterways for securing
cheap transit -of our western surplus prod
ucts to the Atlantic seaboard and the enor
mous volume of manufactured products from
the east to the growing millions In the west.
Ho hag wilttcn to Senator Hanna that Presi

work of a ship canal from the Hudson by

the Henncpln project on. to the Missouri
river and to the Hocky mountains. Ho argues
In fa\or of broad water nml deep canals from
Lake Michigan to the Missouri valley ,
which he believes Is the great common cen
ter of the agricultural universe upon the
Amoilcan continent. In order that hla proj
ect may be thoroughly understood ho lajs
down three plans. First To pledge the
public credit for the entire sum which such
a work may require and "do not haggle about
the total. " His second proposition la that
bonds should bo Issued running fifty years ,
to be based upon the tolls levied upon trafllc
anil he believes that they could be floated
at 2'/4 per cent , possibly 2 per cent. As a
result of these two propositions he lajs down

of the vast volume of skilled and unskilled
labor would be a perpetual blessing to man

Prof. Rimer Gates of Washington eays he
has worked out a process by which objects
can bo magnified to a size 300 times greaiei
than by any of the microscopes now in use.
His Invention , ho claims , will revolutionize
microscopy and will advance science to a point
hitherto undreamed of. His discovery , IIP

and the study of the cellular tissues. The

NDW OUUUNS. Sept. 19. The local
fever situation has undergone llttlo change
since yesterday. At sit o'clock tonight the
record book In the Hoard ot Health cillleo
showed a total of six now cases and ono
death , The olllclal bulletin Issued tonight ,
however , shows two deaths , that of the
woman , Santa Qralllato , who died In the
hospital last night , not having been In
cluded In the offlctal bulletin , although re
ported In dispatches.
This Is the record : Deaths Joseph fjlfi-
fay , an Italian , 2326 Urquhart street. Now
rases , Rosalie Ilackus , John Dell , Plum , be
tween Cnmbronnc and Jefferson ; Irene Ter-
loll , Charity hospital ; William llrandon , 639
Philip ; Xorah 11lies 341 St. Claude street ;
Lena Green , colored , 155S Camp street. The
first two cases arc In the e.xtiemo upper
portion of the city ; one In the fouith dis
trict ; one In the St. Claude street house
where the original six cases were reported ,
and one Is In the Williams houne , where
two cases already existed , There ore three
cases under investigation and the health
ailtholltles tonlirlif still view dm lln.itlnn
with some complacency.
The report of Dr. Mctz , the city chemist ,
on the condition of the Italian quarter ,
moved the board to prompt acceptance to
day of the offer ot the city of the iMarlnc
lospltal ns a refuge. Dr. .Mctz found as
many as s > lxty people huddled together In
: ho Italian quarter living In qualor and
fllth. In ono of the rooms a goat was found
sleeping nightly with the family who owned
t. The woman Graulato was taken from
: hls quaiter and the board realized that un-
ess something were done at once the block
in which the woman had lived was likely
soon to become a plague spot. It was , there-
'ore , decided to uuard and thoroughly dlsln-
Tcct and fumigate the entire squaie nnd to
remove as soon as possible mcst of the fam
ilies to the old Marino hospital. The him-
Ired squatters who now occupy the latter
building will be given quarters In one of
the new schoolhouscs In the vicinity and
the Marine hospital buildings will be per
manently used as n refuge until the fever
Is stamped out for the families of the Ital
ian quarter and those of the Indigent sick
tlnoughout the city.
House Surgeon llloom had a conference
with President Oliphant today relative to
establishing a place to which Indigent j el-
low fever patients might bo removed. There
ire usually 700 or SOO patients In the Charity
hospital , and It Is considercvl highly danger
ous to receive jellovv fever patients In that
Institution. U Is said that the hospital Is
ready to go to any expense to piovldc a sup
plementary hospital. The board submitted
an offer of the free iibc of the old biuallpox
detention camp , which Is entirely discon
nected from thu smallpox hospital , and It
seems likely that the offer will be accepted
anilall .yellow fever patients who for various
reasons cannot be treated at home will bo
sent to Dr. Beard's place. There are now
two patients Buffering with jellovv fever In
the Charity hospital , and their presence ,
although they occupy Isolated apartments Is
deemed a serious menace to other patients.
At a largely attended meeting of bankers ,
business men , ministers and representatives
of labor organizations It was resolved to ask
the Hoard of Health to cuiitldei the advis
ability of adopting next Tuesday as a general
cleaning day.
Acting Major Hrlttnln and President Oil-
pliant today replied to the suggestion
strongly deprecating It. They wrote that It
would be inadvisable and Inexpedient to de
termine upon a fixed day for cleaning pur
poses , as such a movement would cause an
accumulation of tilth and trash which could
not be moved at once , and b > the stirring up
of miasma would further endanger the health
of the city Instead of Improving It. It was
suggested , therefore , that each Individual In.
habitant of the city proceed without dela.v
to the cleaning of his own premises , to the
disinfection of his water closets , allejs , > aid ,
etc. , and the destruction ot all decajlng mat
ter by flro.
The detention camp at Foutalneblcii was
today declared to have been practically com
pleted and to be ready for the reception of
A special train today went to Uiloxl and
Ocean Springs and from there carried about
forty people to the camp. Tomorrow the
camp will be thrown open to all comers.
Those who arc not Immunes will have to
stay In the camp ten days , according to the
rules laid down by Surgeon Murray , these
rules being simply the federal law , which
the surgeon as the commander of the camp
Is bound to enforce.
There were no now cases reported nt Ocean
Spilngs up to noon , but the weather was
heavy and sultry and one of the patients
was not expected to live. She Is Miss l aura
Atkins. Chailes Edgier , son of prominent
Now Oileans people , was among those
stricken yesterday at Ocean. Springs , bin
his condition Is not yet considered serious
When the fever had been declared epidemic
and yellow ho closed himself up In his hniuo
nnd did not torao forth exeept to go to the
detention camp as soon an It was reads.
Isolation , however , did not prevent the gernm
from entering his home.
The worlc of the Now Orleans sanltarj
foitcs tontlnued unabated today nnd the ofll-
ccis employed themselves In hunting up
ninny old rookeries where people are closely
crowded In Illy ventilated homes and where
they Ilio In filth. Many of these places
\vero subjected to complete disinfection and
cleaning. The weather today hub been warm
and threatening.

J2 < ; deatliH. of which fifteen were from > ol-
low fever , twenty-nine from entorlc and per
nicious fevers , thirty-four from djH ntcry
anJ llftj-fivo 'roni enteritis. The Inspector
says the decline In deaths from yellow fever
la only apparently , many deaths from that
dlHcaset ho thinks being placed under the
head of enteiltls and enteric fover.
At the same lime there are not ax many
case's of jellow fev-r In the mllltarj hon-
pltals as there wcro two months ago. the
Hcldlcrs who are sick being cared for In the
hospitals elsewhere.
For two we''ks , according lo the mortality
i ports , no deaths from yellow fever have
occurred in the city proper ; this condition ho
says does not exist. The enormous druth
rate from on'erltls ' and dynenteiy the Inspector
specter saj . Is a result nf the lack of iiu-
{ trltlaus food , and the deaths fiom thcs dls-
i eases have not leached high water maik.

follows. "The cases reported today were
taken , ono on the l"th , ono on the 13th , one
on the 14th , three on the 15th , four on the

shows a persistent j" of the disease between
a rapid Increase and nil the cases nio In one
Infected district save In one locality on the
Old Shell road nnd In the Marine hospital
All the cases , with one or two exceptions ,
are doing well. The Sunday cnlni was In- I
Unsifted todaj- , all tralllc suspended and the ,
streets being even dcecrtcd by the usual '
throngs of worshippers. Not only have
many people gone away , but those lemalnliig
think it prudent to avoid gatherings of all
sorts. The Hujsldo park closed Us season
prcmatiirelj jcsterdny and Sunday street car
travel In that direction , which Is generally
verj largo , was cntliely lacking. There was
n small shower about 2 o'clock today , ac

Piomptly at S o'clock thla morning the
big gates nt the f > ilr grounds will swing
Outward and the thirty-first annual exposi
tion of the pioducts and icsuurces of Ne
braska 111 be formally opened. All that Ima
been promised In icgard to the superiority
of the exhibits bus bscn more than fulfilled ,
and tlio thousands of people that will throng
the grounds during the week will bo per
mitted to src wlmt Nt-bi s' < a t\in offer for
Us natural advantage's. It furnishes a most
cffcptlxe object lesson In one of the most
magnificent expositions of stcck and agrl-
cultuiiil products oxer brought together In
any xtato In the union. At 3 o'clock jes-
terdaj afternoon Just 100 mote carloads ot
exhibits hud boon brought Into the grounds
than were a\er brought to a state fair In
Nobiahka anil a large number of additional
carloads weie scheduled to nrrhe during
the e\enlng and early this morning.
The busl'o of preparation was Intensified
jestoiday mid hundreds of workmen wcro
biiMlly enguipd In lushing lluough the task
of pacing the vast amount of mntfrlnl that
wus offered foi exhibition. Vu Immense
amount of woik was accompllnhed , but even
thpii It was necessary for tinny of them to
woik all night In order to ba mul ) to open
this morning. The Agi ( cultural building
was a veritable beehl\p nnd It wjs found
necessaiy to close the ilnors In cider that
the workmen might not be Impeded. ICarly
In the day theie w < is mine materlil In place
than has p\er beLMi on e.xhibltlon ut a previous
fair and from then on It wat > simply a ques
tion of how much of the ( in unity that re
mained could fop ciowded In With tlio ex
ception of CUP 01 two exhlb Is which aulvcd
late the building will bo piactleilly complete
this morning.
The greatest deby Is notlcublo In the
buildings which are occupied chiefly by local
exhibitors. In spite of ths constant re
minders of the management a vast numusr
of Omaha people insisted on wajtlug until
the last minute to make their untrlcs More
Onnlia cntil- " . were received dining jester-
il ) > y than during the entire previous week and
as j fault a large number of them wer6
turned down. Thp clerks wt-ro compelled to
have the books ready for the Judges to begin
work this morning , nnd It was finally found
noi'esHaij to absolutely shut out all new on-
tiich \s 11 was the clerks In this depait-
inent had to work half HIP nltht In order

Aside fiom this , however , there haa been
iiuthlng to Intcrfcie wi'h the eoniplcle suc
cess of the fair. Nearly all the live stock
tlut had been enteiPd was on Hi" gioundi
before midnight lust night , and the penu
