PARIS. July 28. France's relations with
Germany are again showing signs of strain
owing to the Inability of Premier Rouvler

Germany does not wish to define the extent
of French police and financial reforms. The
Indecisive status of the negotiations has

WASHINGTON, D. C, July 28.-Chalr-man
Knapp and Commissioner Clements
of the Interstate Commerce commission
today gave a hearing on the genera in
quiry under way concerning the transfer
of grain through elevators Involving tha
charge that in many instances rebates has
been allowed. Witnesses were heard in
the case of the Spencer Kelly Grain Ele
vator company of Buffalo, N Y., an In
dependent concern. An effort was made
to prove that the company had allowed a
rebate of H of a cent per bushel on a
particular shipment of oats from Chicago
to New York by way of Buffalo. On be
half of the company the contention was
made that it was not a common carrier In
the sense that the law contemplated as ap
plied to railroads; that it was in the ele
vator business, absolutely Independent of
the railroads, and that the elevation of
the grain was no part of Its transportation.'
Hence It was held by counsel for the ele
vator company that there was no illegality
In the methods adopted by It in obtaining

NEW ORLEANS, La., Jifly 28.-Th fol
lowing report as to the progress of yellow
fever in New Orleans Is up to S p. m. today:
New cases si
Total cases to date M
Deaths to date J7
New foci ft
Of these deaths today one occurred at
the Emergency hospital and was one of the
cases transferred there yesterday. The In
stitution now has nineteen cases under
treatment and today discharged Its first
patient as cured.
Although the unofficial reports made, pub
lic today showed a larger number of deaths
than yesterday, when there were only two.
and the appearance of a number of new
cases, the men of science who are warring
against the yellow fever ended the day's
labors confident that the situation was
stilt well in hand and with no immediate
prospect of becoming alarming. Today's
official report of yesterday's progress of
the disease shows that the entire section
above Canal street was free from a single
new case, and that the fever was spreading
only In the poorer habitations of the down
town section, with new cases Isolated ex
cept In the heart of the French market
quarter. The health authorities continue
to hold also that the plague remalna an
Italian Infection, all except two of the
twenty-one cases reported today being of
that nationality. Almost without exception
Blnce the beginning of the fever, those who
have fallen victims to the disease have
been of the poorer classes of the popula
tion, many of them not long residents of
the United States and therefore unaccll
mated. Deaths Amonar Italians.
Today's deaths have been principally of
Italians. The first death In the Emer
gency hospital occurred today. The hoa
pital was opened yesterday with thirteen
cases and an equal number was added to
day. Into tho hospital are being sent tha
worst cases of Indigent unfortunates. It
Is therefore expected that the mortalities
in this direction will be unusually high.
In order to remove any impression that
all the cases Of yellow fever ars not belngr
reported, the' city board made this an
nouncement today! '- -' ; ''r .. ; i
Uo to now cases reported to the city
board as susplclouB and occurring In the
infected locality have Been reported aa such
to the state board, but have been treated
as yellow fever, while cases reported as
suspicious in other localities are Investi
gated prior to reporting to the state board.
In the future, however, all cases reported ,
as suspicious to the city board, will be In
vestigated before being reported to the
state board, Irrespective of locality.
A number of caaes reported today were
above Canal street. One under observation
Is that of a nurse who had attended un
fortunates In the heart of the Infected
French market district. 8he was bitten by
mosquitoes and apparently contracted tha
disease The other cases have also been
traced to the original Infection and the au
thorities today ssld they had not yet re-
celved reports of any cases that were not
State Quarantines City.
The State Board of Health met today and
finally ordered a quarantine of the state
against the city. That action became abao-
lutely necessary In order to protect all tho
points In the state outside of ,New Orleans
from being quarantined by Alabama, Texas
and Mississippi. Three parishes and one
town In another parish Wsr granted com
munication with New Orleans. They ara
contle-uous to the city.' many of thslr Deo-
P' do business here and they would suffer
more harm by being cut off from the city
than having the three states put up tho
bars against them.
Instructions have been Issued to citizens
generally to report any. cases of Italians
who move Into new 'neighborhoods, SO that
they may be returned to houses they havs
vacated or to isolated sections. In spite of
all that Is being done to reassure them.
many of the Italians are still greatly
frightened end ara desperately seeking to
get out of the plague cordon.
The Mississippi authorities. In Justification
of the severe quarantines which that stata
has established, say It became necessary
because New Orleans people hava beeta re
sorting to all sorts of methods to get into
that state. An attempt to run the quaran
tine reaulted disastrously today for E. C
Joulllan, a prominent business man of
Blloxl, Miss. Mr. Joulllan was caught In
Louisiana when the quarantine was put on.
He thought he might reach hla home by
water route without encountering the Mis
sissippi guards. When he landed on tho
coast, however, he was seized by order of
General Friedge of the State National
Guard and sent to the quarantine station
at Ship Island, In the gulf, for ten days.
When released Mr. Joulllan will be tried
for violating the quarantine laws.
The Illinois Central railroad has offered
trains to the Mississippi officials to enabla
them to enforce the quarantine regulation.
Advices received today are to the effect
that Mississippi has no Intention of quaran
tilling freight from New Orleans.
Maay Local Quaraet Ines.
Owing to the Increasing number of local
quarantines It la practically impossible to
go twenty miles througlf Mississippi without
a health certificate. Not only in Missis
sippi, but In Ixmislana, the shotgun quaran
tine Is again In evidence. Meantime New
Orleans Is sitting down with increasing
faith In the mosquito theory and except for
the quarantines and news In tha papers on
would have no evidence of tha prevalent:
of any unusual illness here. '
During the fever of 17-68, when th
mosquito theory was not attempted to bo
carried into effect, there waa a widespread
Impression that yellow fever germs would
be transmitted through tha malls, and as a
consequence the Postofflce department un
dertook the disinfection of mall matter that
was sent away from New Orleans. No steps
have been taken to resume that practice
now and It Is believed that the government
will proceed on the theory that the mos
quito only can carry the Infection.
