New Orleans on Alert Against
Yellow Fever.
Government Takes Hand In Carjns
for Refugees One Death Occurs
Outside French District.
To Quarantine Cuba.
NEW ORLEANS. La., July 24 Tonlgftt
Mayor Behrman issued a proclamation
to the people of New Orleans urging them
to heed the advice of the health authori
ties relative to the sanitation of their
premises and calling special attention to
the necessity of screening the houses
and placing nets over clfterns and all
pools of water which might breed mos
quitoes. At a meeting of the State Board of
Health today it was decided, in response
to numerous requests for information
from the parish health offices, to prepare
and send out a detailed statement of the
situation. This will Include an official
statement that up to date there have been
17 cases of fever here and six deaths.
The quarantine regulations suggested by
the meeting of citizens requiring six days
detention for all vessels from ports liable
to yellow fever were adopted after a very
heated discussion.
A thorough system of inspection is being
put into effect here by the state, city and
Federal authorities, with a view to the
prompt report of new cases of fever, in
the event there is any spread from the
focus now under control. The situa
tion is considered to be well In hand In
the district about the French market,
where the fever had its origin.
Meanwhile there is -widespread con
fidence in the ability of United States
Marine Hospital Surgeon White and
the state and city authorities to fully
apply the mosquito theory, and there
has been no exodus from the city.
Large numbers of home people are re
turning to New Orleans from the sur
rounding resorts, to avoid being sep
arated from their families owing to
the rigidity of the quarantines that
have been put into effect.
The City Council will meet tomorrow
and pass a mosquito ordinance which has
been submitted by the health authorities.
United States Army Surgeon Moss, of
San Antonio, Tex., arrived today with a
view to examining into conditions. He
comes In connection with the recommen
dation for the removal of the men now
at the United States barracks to Chat
tanooga. There is no sickness reported
at the barracks, but as many of the sol
diers are unacclimated, it has been con
sidered advisable to ask for their removal
from New Orleans.
The health authorities continue to Insist
that there is absolutely no cause for
alarm, and that, if people will follow the
directions that arc being published, the
fever can be restricted, successfully treat
ed and stamped out.
Death From Yellow Fever Outside
First Inspected District.
WASHINGTON. July 24. Acting Surgeon-General
Glennon. of the Public
Healtr and Marine Hospital Service, to
day was Informed by Surgeon White,
who represents that service at New Or

WASHINGTON, July 24. Surgeon-Gen
eral wyman, of the Public Health and
Marine Hospital service, who has been
absent from the city on official business,
Is now on his way to Washington, and
upon his arrival will give personal atten
tion to the yellow fever situation in New
Meantime the service under the direc
tion of Dr. Glennon Is co-operating with
the New Orleans authorities to prevent
any fresh outbreak. There are halt a
dozen trained members of the force In
that city, and they are now giving their
attention to getting residents away. To
accomplish this and without endangering
other communities, a large number of
detention camps will be established out
sldo the New Orleans city limits. These
refugees will be held for a sufficient time
to protect those with whom they may
later come in contact.
Mobile Orders Quarantine.
MOBILE. Ala.. July -24. On account
of what the local health authorities
term the laxity of precautionary meas
ures by the Mississippi towns between
here and New Orleans, and of the lat
ter city in the handling of the yellow
fever situation, the Mobile Board of
Health today instituted a vigorous
quarantine against every town on the
Gulf coast. This order goes Into effect
at once.

likely that the Britten empire movement

Perhaps it was all vanity ever to have
hoped that his-programme could be real

vision. It waB a scheme to link the Brit

aries of the United Kingdom while check
ing the "cuckoo policy of the rival na
tions which wished to reap trade where
they had sown neither colonial endeavor
nor political sacrifice; to take effective
steps to dispel the nightmare raised by
Balfour himself. "The time must come
when the only neutral markets where
Great Britain can dispose of her exports
will be her own protectorates, her own
crown colonies and India, leaving us help
less In the hands of other nations."
But the British people, always disposed
to "muddle along," always prone to the
'"short views" of the Anglo-Saxon, have
not been content to make the initial sac
rifices which ihe Chamberlain programme

improve since the Birmingham statesman
told them it was beginning to decline.
The cry of "the dear loaf" has been po

gone against the protectionist propagan

has' stayed his hand and kept his sup

which declines to make the matter an Is

are set.
The British empire has been a growth.
It will not be forced, even by a Cham

perhaps in .sentiment also the tenden

"daughter nations" will continue to ac

economic and political growth thrusts
them farther away from her. Some time
there may be a confederation of free
Anglo-Saxon states, whose accordant

there will ever be a close-knit empire.

Boston Transcript.
"The lion has a good many, sides to
his nature." said the old circus man.
"No beast can come anywhere near him
in looks, and no beast Is more misun
derstood by the general public. He
has the size and strength for courage.
but that Is about as far as it goes. He
will fight, of course, if very hungry or
cornered In pursuit, but he seems to
have a born dread of man, and will
often turn and run at the sight of one,
if free. He is called the king of beasts,
and he certainly looks the part, if
figure and bearing count. All of the
20 fine specimens in my charge are
known to me Just as a boy Is known
to his father. I can read their na
tures by their eyes, the lines of. the
face and the shape of the head. The
leader of the lion troupe owned by
circus people I know is a magnificent
fellow named Brutus. He has the finest
head and face I have ever seen- He
has been with us for four years. He
has more forehead than the usual lion.
It is wider and higher and there Is
more space between the eyes. The
eyes are round, without being too full.
and the nose is long and healthfully
wide at the bottom. He has a good
mouth, with Just enough fullness In the
upper lipe to show a good heart. His
chin has no corners, and yet it 1
not round. It is Just enough between
these two extremes to give one faith
in his being a good fellow without
weakness, and strong without mean
ness. His ears are not big enough to
make him selfish, and his legs are not
long and thin enough to make him
treacherous. He is what I would call
a well-balanced lion. If he stood on
two legs Instead of four and wore
clothes, like as not he would sit in
some high place and settle differences
between people and help them by kind

charm it may have for others. "We
have a lion that is called The Saint. He
is a raw-boned youngster, who makes
you think of a normal student. His
cheekbones are high and the Jaws have
wells in them, like those of men who
practice self-denial and preach. He is
mild-mannered, has a whining kind of
voice, walks slowly, as if thinking, and
Inclines his head upward, showing a
lot of the white of the eyes, and eats
but little. All these signs make you
think of a good man In the flesh more
than a soulless beast of the Jungle.
There isn't a lion In the menagerie

After Conference, Carter Withdraws
Resignation Will Take Vaca
tion and Return to Do "Bat
tle. With Officials.
OYSTER BAY. July 24.A consideration
of Hawaiian affair occupied President
Roosevelt's attention for several hours
today. He had as a guest for luncheon
and during the greater part of the after
noon George R- Carter. Governor of Ha
waii!, who came to Oyster Bay deter
mined to resign his official position to
escape the annoyance to which he has
been, subjected since he succeeded Sanl
ford B. Dole as Governor. The President
not only declined to accept his resigna
tion, but told him to go back to Honolulu
and he should have the full support and
sympathy of the National administration.
Mr. Carter was In a much happier
frame of mind after his interview -with
the President than he had been before.
He "will take a much-needed vacation
probably In this country, for several
weeks. 'When he returns to Honolulu it
will be to resume his official duties with
new confidence and vigor.
"I advised President Rosevclt," said Mr.
Carter, after his conference, "to accept
my resignation, but he declined to take
my advice On the contrary, he advised
me to withdraw my resignation, and I
decided to take his advice. That Is the
whole story in a nutshell."
Since he was appointed to succeed Mr.
Dole, who was named as one of the
United States district udges of Hawaii,
Governor has encountered difficulty, par
ticularly with officials in the islands. HJs
administration has not been harmonious,
evidently through no fault of his. The
trouble culminated two or three months
ago in his sending his resignation to the
President, The President declined to ac
cept It. because he had great confidence
in the Governor's ability to administer
Hawaiian affairs as he -would have them
administered. Finally the Governor de
cided to come to the United States to
btalk over the situation with the Presi
dent, He arrived nere at izvjj o ciock
today and was driven directly to-Sagamore
"I felt." said he. "that the best way
to restore harmony in Hawaii was for
me to- resign the Governorship. The
President dots not think so. We went
over the question fully and I have accept
ed his advice and will continue as Gov
ernor." Governor Carter scarcely hopes for an
early resoratlon of harmony In Hawaii.
He says, however, that he will return to
the Islands determined to continue his
fight for what he believes to be the best
for them and for the people generally.
President Roscvelt assurd him of his own
cordial sympathy and of the support of
his administration. He Indicated after
Mr. Carter talk with him that he not
only could not permit Mr. Carter to re
sign in the circumstances, but that he
proposed to stand squarely back of him

Chamberlain's Plan Fading With
Waning Favor.
Xew York Eenlng Mall.
when Joseph Chamberlain made his
declaration in the Commons Just two
years ago in favor of an imperial tariff
system it was remarked by one of the
London newspapers that the country was
asked to take such a decision "as can
come but once in a century-" It may
now be said that the opportunity, with
whatever of good or III It was fraught,
has passed. It may not come again in
a century- It may never come. The
dream of a British empire which the ac
tive Intellect of Chamberlain ' had pre
figured, a world-encirclintr empire wits
one flag, one army, one navy and one
tariff system, sinks back Into the dust of
dreams, as the only man capable of
making it flesh, bows to the burden of ad
vancing years, and the afflictions they
bring with them.
His enemies sneered at Chamberlain as
his enemies sneered at Gladstone as "an
old man in a hurry-" Aging time has
moved faster than either was able to
make British politics move. Gladstone
died and left the home rule cause with
out a leader. When Chamberlain ceases
his public activities he will leave the Im
perial programme which he Initiated
without a leader. It needs a command
ing one. To carry Into execution Its
grandiose details requires a director -with
the foresight, energy and enthusiasm of
a Chatham. At least Joseph Chomber
laln "thinks Imperially." to use an over
worked phrase. But -while he thinks aa4

Says That Xo Decent Man Will Shoot
Bunny While the Latter
Because rabbit shooting Is seasonable
only In late Fall or Winter weather the
mention of It Is calculated to suggest
shivering chills, cold feet, numb fingers
and all sorts of heavy clothing. At first
blush, therefore. It may not seem to bo
exactly an appropriate topic to be given
a place in a magazine designed 'for mid
Summer reading. On second thought,
however. I hope It will not be deemed
amiss that the torridlty of such a maga
zine should be tempered by a cooling
admixture hinting of recreation free
from dog-day swelter, and reminding the
reader that a season is on Its way which
brings with it outdoor sport exempt from
Summer heat and unvexed "by the stings
and arrows of outrageous gnats, flies or
mosquitoes. It is quite within reason to
suppose that the addition of rabbit
hunting to the Ingredients that simmer in
Summer recreative reading might be as
refreshing as the addition of Ice to an
otherwise tepid Summer tipple.
Some hunters there are. of the super-
refined and dudlsh sort, who deny to the
rabbit any position among legitimate
game animals: and there are others who.
while grudgingly admitting rabbits to the
list, seem to think it necessary to ex
cuse their concession by calling them
hares. I regard all this as pure affecta
tion and nonsense. I deem it not beneath
my dignity and standing as a reputable
gunner to write of the rabbit as an ep
tlrely suitable member or -the game
community; and in doing so I am not
dealing with hares or any other thins
except plain, little, every-day pleblan rab
bits sometimes appropriately called "cot
tontails." Though they may be "defamed
by every charlatan" among hunters of
self-constituted high degree, and despised
by thousands who know nothing of their
game qualities. I am not ashamed of their
pursuit; and I count It by no means bad
skill to force them by a successful shot
to a topsy-turvy pause when- at their
best speed.
These sly Tittle fellows feed at night.
and during the day they hide so closely

It Is seldom they can be seen when at

a rabbit while sitting, and I have krwn
them to refuse to start for anything leas
than a kick or a punch. When they do
start however, they demonstrate quite
clearly that they have kept their feet la

or other safe shelter. Instead of relying
upon his running ability. The baying of
three or four good dogs steadily following
a little cottontail should be as exhilar
ating and as pleasant to ears attuned to
the music as If the chase were for bigger
game. As the music Is heard more dis
tinctly, the hunter Is allowed to flatter
himself that his acute Judgment can de
termine tho route of the approaching
game and the precise point from which an
advantageous shot can be secured. The
self-satisfied conceit aroused by a fortu
nate guess concerning this Important de
tail, especially If supplemented by a fatal
shot, should permit the lucky gunner to
enjoy as fully the complacent pleasurable
persuasion that the entire achievement is
due to his sagacity, keenness and skill as
though the animal circumvented were a

experiences the dellght born of a well-fed
sense of superiority and self-pride: and
this, notwithstanding all attempts to keep

abject surrender to fad or fashion. At any
rate It is exceedingly unjust to the cotton

Inexcusable destruction of animal life,

cent but gratifying self-conceit.
Let us remember, howsver. that If rabbit-hunting
Is to be a manly outdoor rec
reation, entirely free from meanness, and
a sport In which a true hunter can Indulge
without shame, the little cottontail must
in all circumstances be given a fair chance
for his life.

genius for unearthing happy quota

days ago, when, arguing against the
proposed disfranchising act for Mary
land, which contains a "grandfather's
clause." he resurrected from "Voltaire
the appropriate phrase that " a good cit
izen needs no grandfather." And. above
all, he has an unusual power of acute,
direct, forceful speech. "Honest men
may honestly differ," he said once, "as
to protection and free trade, as to fed

gold currency and sliver currency and
paper' currency, but honest men all think
alike as to a free ballot and a fair count.

Unnecessary Noises.
Philadelphia Ledger.
Noise is easily misinterpreted as a sign
of vigorous enterprise In all lines of hu
man activity. There Is a bustle of trade
which no one would suppress. The loud
est shouter Is not by any means the most
accomplished and effective orator. Th
best work may be done without great
clamor and uproar. Noise Is commonly
associated with the faker, who covers the
pinchbeck quality of his wares by stri
dently proclaiming their virtues. Much
of the noise of the city street Is entirely
unnecessary and could be suppressed
without Injury to any material Interest
