The Ak-Sar-Ben festivities of 1910 have
reached the highest mark as yet. The fall
festival has been the most complete ana
successful since the Knights of Ak-Sar-Bon
first crowned a monarch. The electrical
parade was easily the best and was wit
nessed by more people; the army maneu
vers have been a gigantic success, the
highway haa been gayer.
Attendance at the Highway may have
fallen a few hundred short qX the mark of
two years ago, but this was due to the
absence of railroad rates and the 1909 fig
ure Is far surpassed. A great day at Fort

I.lttle Shaky In England.
After discussing the chances for and
against a serious republican movement In
the near future among any of the popula
tion of the monarchlal powers, an able
thinker, seeking a point of contact between
Portuguest republicans and the democracy
of the United Kingdom, says it is incon
ceivable that tho leaders of political thought
in England, when taking a broad view of
events in Usbon, should not see the light
these cast upon the forthcoming coronation
of George V, "a ceremony bound to do one
of two things either Increase or decrease
the sources of democracy in the greatest
state of tiie modern world."

But, altogether apart from the future

A prominent tory organ accuses them of
"warming at their campflres the whole
brood of revolutionary vipers," and ap

chosen and given to the high party by
the adroit Balfour.
Unionists profess to believe that the
rising tide of national enthusiasm for
crown and en.plre will swamp the rad

it occurs in January or later In 1911.

"Four or five years axo there was a

we understand he died a few months ado.

NEW TORK. Oct. 8. (Special Telegram.)
It was officially announced today at
quarantine and at Washington that the
menace of cholera had been effectually re
moved from American ports. The precau
tions taken abroad at all ports from which
people who had been exposed to the in
fection must embark had become so
effective that there was no longer anv
reasonable chance of an infected person
embarking for this country.
These precautions consisted in detaining
passengers for observation at all suspected
ports until it could be certain they had
not been Infected. This has been the work
of Dr. Walter Wyman, head of the United
States public health service.
In addition, the watch against cholera
at this port had been made so stringent
that health officers of the port said today:
"New Tork Is practically impregnable
against a serious inroad of cholera."

Over In Washington Is a little gray
haired man with a short mustache Just
turning to silver. He is a quiet man, un
ostentatious, seldom speaking, almost shy.
But he holds cholera menace to America
in the palm of his hand.
This man is Surgeon General Walter
Wyman, who directs every measure that Is
adopted to bar the Asiatic death from this
continent. And under his supervision the
barring of that death begins, not at Amer

At Naples, at Genoa, at Marseilles, at
Southampton, at Trieste, at Hongkong and

duty Is 'co watch that no person with symp

disease sail for this country.
The stecii.ge passengers who wish to ship
for this country from the cholera lnf.-.cted

these examiners. But that Is not all. Lest
dormant cholera break out among them on
the voy..e,. they are first put aboard ex
