Louisiana Turns Yellow Fever
Epidemic Over to the
In Response to Governor's Request,
President Instructs Surgeon
General AVymnn .to Act.
jjlore Gases. Reported. -
NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 4. With no in
tentlon of admitting the lever situation
to be beyond control, but in tho hope of
reviving confidence here and elsewhere in
the South, official and business interests
decided today to send a request to Presi
dent Roosevelt to have the United States
Government assume full charge of the
struggle now in progress to wipe out yel
low fever from New Orleans. The public
approves of the action taken. Expecta
tions are that within the next two days
Surgeon-General Wyman, with all the re
sources of tho Government, will be en
listed actively in the campaign.
The action taken was the result of a
meeting held late today at the Cotton Ex
change. It was the consensus of opinion
that, if Government control was resolved
upon, there would be an Immediate res
toration of confidence throughout Louis
iana and the other states in the South
where there has been criticism of the local
authorities for not sooner making public
the existence cfr the fever. It was the
belief of those present that General Wy
man will be able to send a force of phy
sicians to New Orleans thoroughly
equipped for the handling of a ycllow-'i
lever situation, because of the pestilence I
in Cuba, Mexico and at different points
in the United States, and that the Gov
ernment would have the facilities for en
forcing a scientific campaign not pos
sessed by the local authorities.
Panic Quickly Allayed.
Immediately after the meeting a tele
gram signed by the Mayor and other in
terests represented was addressed to Gov
ernor Blanchard telling him of the action
The announcement of the action taken
at first created some alarm in the city,
growing out of the fear that it meant
that the situation had grown entirely be
yond control, but that alarm was allayed
when it became knpwn that the authori
ties had acted simply in the belief that
prompt action now in turning over the
direction of affairs to the Marine Hos
pital service, in whom there is supreme
confidence here, would almost certainly
avert an epidemic.
At a conference at the City Hall it
"was decided that Mayor Behrman should
Issue a proclamation requiring every duhI
ness house in the city to close its doora
on Wednesday next in order that em
ployes might take a hand in the general
cleaning movement that has been Inaug
urated. The Mayor decided to borrow an
additional 510.000 from the fiscal agents
to aid in the work.
Today the Board of Health instituted a
new rule jjpqulring Jts inspectors to. make
prCmpt report xf cases. To that xrder.
was due the fact that 20. cases had been
announced early in" the afternoon as oc
curring during the day. Yesterday .the 3
o'clock report "was two deaths. The an
nouncement at G o'clock that there were
M cases and five deaths was due to the
lact that the Inspectors turn their capes
in in bunches late in the evening, and had
a most disquieting effect on ihe public,
which had been led to believe that the
situation was improving.
One Haven of Refuge Open
Hundreds of people ere temporarily
moving out of New Orleans into St Tam
many Parish. St. Tammany is practically
the only nearby haven to which local peo
ple can go. The parish has refueed to
put on a quarantine and has opened its
doors to all refugees. That is due to the
fact that a case of yellow fever wag never
developed there, even In the most serious
epidemics here. Oases have been taken
to the parish, but. whether the patient
recovered or died, there hap never been
any extension of thhe infection. The
reason for the immunity of St. Tammany
Is that the stegomyia has never existed
there. '
Because of the rigidity of the quaran
tines Instituted by Texas and some of
the parishes in Louisiana, the Southern
Pacific has suspended
and has also rofused much of the freight.

Charge of Epidemic.
WASHINGTON. Aug. -(.-President
.Roosevelt tonight forwarded to Surgeon
General Wyman, of the Public Health and
Marine Hospital Service, a telegram from
Governor Blanchard. of Louisiana, re
questing that the United States Govern
ment take control of the yellow fever sit
uation in New Orleans. The President
directed the Surereon-OpMomi tn toi
every step in his power to meet the sit
uation in New Orleans, and to notify
him what further action Is advisable and
possible for the Federal authorities to
take. President Roosevelt further said:
Pleae take every step In your power to meet
the eituaUon at New Orleans and comply
with the rcauest of the Governor and the
other authorities and notify what further ac
tion Is advisable and possible for the Federal
authorities to take. Would like full report
Irom you as to what should be done. Please
confer with the Surgeon-General of tb Army
and Navy. If In your Judgment this Is wise.
Dr. Wyman has acknowledged the

Morton Reduces Estlmnte Put on
Equitable Real Estate.
NEW YORK. Aug. 4". Two experts
have been appointed by President Paul
Morton to value every piece of real es
tate in which the Equitable Life As
surance Society has an interest, says
the Tribune today. He is stated to
have taken this action yesterday when
he received the reports of expert ac
countants. These reports. It is alleged,
indicate the possibility of extensive
overvaluation. The society i owns in
this country and abroad real estate
valued at, approximately. $3G,000,000.
According to the Tribune, it is thought
possible that this amount will have to
be reduced, while the valuation of par
cels on which loans are outstanding
may have to be reduced by at least 10
per cent.
The last report to the State Insur
ance Department gives tho value of
real estate owned by the society at
486,S&5,647. Of this sum. buildings oc
cupied by the society in New York,

.NEW ORLEANS. Aug! -Extreme
measures which some of the country dis
tricts are taking to guard themselves
from yellow fever threaten to put a stop
to traffic. The most radical action thus
far taken is that of the police board of
Calcasieu, the second largest parish In
the state. It has passed - resolutions or
dering that all traffic, travel and inter
course between Calcasieu and points east,
north and west shall cease at once, and
that no one shall be permitted to enter
the limits of the parish until further or
ders. In consequence of this resolution, the
Southern Pacific has been ordered from
loday to run no more trains through Cal
casieu, which means an abandonment of
the through service of the line to the
West The Kansas City Southern trains
have also been stopped. It is said that
the quarantine in a day or so will be
extended to all other trains. The effect
Is to stop all mall train service.

Iroquois Club Committee Considers
Life Insurance Problem.
CHICAGO, Aug. 1 Three hours of dis
cussion of life insurance problems by the
committee of the Iroquois Club yesterday
left only one question in the minds of
the investigators. It Is: "Is Congress
authorized under the present federal -constitution
to enact legislation placing the
companies under supervision?" The pos
sibility of Improved state regulations is
not regarded with so much hope,
A sub-committee of four attorneys,
who have made a study of the life in
surance laws, was appointed to look into
the question of constitutional limitations
on Congressional action and to report to
the regular committee at the end of two
weeks. It is also requested to investi
gate any measures to make more effec
tual the supervision of the state super
intendents. Tho committee members will confine
their attention almost entirely to learn
ing if the insurance business may be
classed as interstate commerce, and thus
come under the Jurisdiction of Congress.
If the decision is reached that the legis
lation required Is beyond their authority,
measures for securing a constitutional
amendment will be considered.
There are now two bills for the fed
eral regulation oflnsurance pending in
Congress, one fathered by Congressman
Morrell and the other by Senator Drydon.
who suggests a comprehensive system of
control. Neither has been acted upon,
and the question of federal Jurisdiction
had been presented to the Supreme Court.
It is, to the support of the latter proposi
tion that the Iroquois Club and Its sup
porters probably will turn.

Strike Affects Northern Pas
senger Service. . .
Are Here From Many Points
Operators Say That Will Be Test.
Officials Claim Strikers Are
Beaten Engineers and
Conductors Refuse Aid.
ST. PAUL. Aug. 4. Although conditions
approaching a tie-up have not yet devel
oped as a result of the strike of the
telegraphers on the Great Northern and
Northern Pacific Railroads. Increasingly
serious delays are being caused In the
moving of traffic. Tonight tho effect of the
strike Is becoming .manifest In the mov
ing of passenger trains, which the offi
cials by strenuous efforts have been able
so far to keep practically on schedules.
Information given out at the Union Sta
tion at St. Paul shows that, while nearly
all the morning trains of both roads were
on time, midday and afternoon trains
have been coming in at all hours. '
The Northern Pacific North Coast Lim
ited, due at 6:50 P. M.. will arrive tomor
row morning at 7:40. The Twin City Ex
press on the same road, due at 7:40 this
morning, arrived at 4:30 P. M., nearly
nine hours late. Train No. 6 was 30-minutes
late. The Groat Northern has been
more fortunate today, the "Flyer," due
at 2:45 being slightly less than three hours
late. The Fast Mall, on the same road,
due at 10:40, will arrive shortly after mid
night. Crop Movement Will Be Test,
What the outcome of the 'situation will
be Is problematical. The railway officials
say that they are taking all the business
offered, and will be able to take care of
It. The operators, however, are aware
of the difficulties with which freight Is
boing moved and predict that, when the
heavy movement of crops begins present
ly, the tie-up will be realized. Perish
able freight was received today in many
cases without prepayment, and refrigera
tor cars started In an attempt to make
local deliveries where possible. No guar
antees are being made to deliver at points
where stations have been closed. Iron
ore traffic at the head of the Lakes Is
moving without delay.
Reports from official sources on the
number of union deserters and the number
of stations operated vary widely. General
Manager Horn, of the Northern Pacific,
and General Superintendent Slade, of the
Great Northern, pay that they are contin
uing to get men from the union ranks,
and President Perham declares that these
statements are greatly exaggerated in
each case. .
Opening More Stations.
Numbers of stations are being opened
on both roads, clerks from the general of
fice of the roads and old employes, beside
dispatchers, being used to augment the
ranks of the strike-breakers. Those who
are not telegraphers are assigned to
smaller stations to take care of the freight
and express matter.
Mr. Horn, In commenting on tho day's
developments, said tonight:
"The striking operators have absolutely
failed to tie up the Northern Pacific or to
Interfere to any great degree with the
movement of trains. Our freight and .pas
senger service Is being maintained effect
ively and without a break."
Engineers and Conductors' Stand.
The difficulties In train operation will
be greatly Increased by union rulings re
ceived tonight by conductors and engi
neers employed by the two systems.
Grand Engineer W. S. Stone, of the Order
of Railway Engineers, has instructed the
membors of that body to cease assuming
any of tho functions of the telegraphers,
and E. C Clark, head of the Order of
Railway Conductors, has Issued a like or
der. Tho telegraphers say that much of
the success the roads have had In moving
trains is due to the aid given by members
of these two orders. ,
Claims of the Managers.
In a statement as to strike conditions
on the Northern Pacific Railway, General
Manager Horn said today:
Perishable freight is moving in excellent
chape today over the entire Hue. Fast
freight is moving on schedule. Passenger
fctrvlce is being handled without delay. Tho
Nopth Coast Limited from the Pacific Coast
has been on time all the time since the
strike started and is cloie to Its schedule to
day. General Freight Agent J. B. Balrd.
who returned from the West today, says
traffic on the entire line is moving about as
usual. Superintendent Albee of the Pacific
division reports all his branch line freights
moving and business on the main line In fine
Striking operators assaulted the telegra
phers at Easton and wrecked the station,
but "have been arrested. All trains between
Portland and Seattle carryjng Exposition
travel are being handled without delay and
through trains from the East are arriving on
time.' The Idaho division Is well In hand.
All but two branches are working and men
ore coming back hourly. Similar conditions
prevail on other divisions. There has not
been a delay of Importance to freight or
passenger trains. Since the strike started
there has not been a single wreck or any
other trouble. Men on all divisions are be
ginning to apply for reinstatement.
General Superintendent Slade, of the
Great Northern, today summarized the
strike situation as it affected that road as
Trains No. 2. 4. 7. 10, 12. 18. 13 and 20 ar
rived at the Union Depot at St. Paul during
the past 24 hours on time and only one train
was late. The train was delayed by heavy
baggage and express work. Our reports from
all divisions show passenger trains generally
on time and freight trains running on sched
ule. Many agents and operators who Joined
tho strike have requested re-employment
and have been assigned to their duties. In
one case the local chairman, after being pre
sented by his superintendent with the tacts
in connection with the causes leading up
to the strike, wired bis resignation as chair
man to Mr. Perham and returned to work.
Defections from the ranks of the strikers
continue and advices from our superintend
ents indicate a larger number of stations
open today than yesterday.

Everett Grand
As we have often stated, when it
comes to musical events, where nothing
but the very finest pianos are used, our
house is Invariably consulted. As usual
at the opening of the National Summer
School, our house was consulted and an
Everett Grand selected for use. A
Knabe Grand was also selected for use
In connection with Dlerkc's band at the

where music plays an Important part, but
ono or more of our pianos are used. We
are proud of the position we occupy ln
this respect, and it Is our object during
the Fair to place as many of our pianos
as possible throughout this Northwest
territory. With this object In view we
are making a very substantial reduction
In price, which means to the customer a
distinctly high-grade piano at a price less

inferior quality. Visitors to the Fair will

from this that we have opcratora at every
office, but with the exceptions noted every
office is open for all freight and passenger
business. The embargo has been taken
off perishable freight to all offices except
the two mentioned. Sixteen of the men
who werft out on strike have come back
and gone to work. When the strike
started, we had three main line offices
open cast of Spokane and nine west. Now
we have a total of 24 telegraph offices
open, or Just double the original num
ber. We are certainly through with the
O. R. T.. although we never recognized
the order, simply negotiating with a com
mittee of our own employes with whom
Mr. Perham appeared as counsel. A few
strikers will be taken back if they want
to come, but there aro a lot of them
who can't come back at all. One reason
for this will be fewer vacancies.
