ANOTHER DEATH IS REPORTED

PASSENGERS ARE DETAINED
Controversy, in Which r. Doty Is
Accused of Neglect, Is . Waged.
Cases Belated In Development '
Are Alleged. -, I
NEW YORK, July 16. Although the!
cholera situation at Quarantine is atj
present regarded by Alvah H. Doty,
health Inspector of the port, as being!
well In hand tonight, he did not oon-j
ceal his apprehension that New York
"Is In the very midst of a threatened)
invasion of cholera."
"Tho quarantine department of every
port In this country Is facing a very
serious and onerous task," said Dr.
Doty, "and it is not impossible that)
many vessels arriving from Italy In thjj
next few days will bring one or more,
cases of the disease." .
Another Victim Dies. J
Today's official report of tha sltua-t
tion show there are 15 cases at Swin-
burne hospital, and four cases symp-j
tomatlc of tho disease. Within the past
24 hours one more victim has died. The!
steamer Perugia has been detained and!
tho medical staff is preparing to make
bacteriological examination of tha tit
passengers from the .steamer Moltkej
who are now under observation. j
Charles Pushklnd, attorney for tho
Immigrants whose charges against Dr.:
Doty are being investigated by a com-;
mission, made public a letter he wrote!
to Judge Bulger, of the commission,'
suggesting the latter call upon Gov-
ernor Dlx to take charge of the health'
In a statement in reply to an inter-j
view attributed by a morning news-j
paper lo Judge Bulger, Dr. Doty re-i
views the situation and points to the'
element of danger. The statements at-
tributed to Judge Bulger, Dr. Doty;
says, "are so calculated to alarm the!
public in the very midst of a threatened
invasion of cholera that I feel Justified
In making a' reply." "What can Dr.)
Doty, health officer of the port, mean,
when he allows five men who have been'
in dally contact with persons suffer-!
lng from Asiatic cholera, to come here)
in the same clothes they wore when:
among the cho:era victims and touch:
elbows with everybody they meet?" is j
the question propounded by Judge Bui- j
ger in cn Interview.
Dr. Doty's statement continues: "The
facts are these: Five men referred to
were called as witnesses by the persons
in charge of the investigation and were
permitted by me to be absent from
duty at Hoffman Island for this pur
pose. Cholera Is not transmitted by
clothing or by air, but by actual con
tact through the mouth with discharges
from the intestinal tract of the cholera
victim. There Is. therefore, no danger
from contact with a person who has
been in touch with the disease.
"A majority of the vessels which havt
recentSy come from Italy have either
brought actual cases of this disease, or
furnished evidence of its having oc
curred In transit. It Is with great dif
ficulty that the latter condition is es- ,
tabllshed, and It is only through the
most exhaustive bacteriological exam
ination that I am able to secure the
"It Is in the presence of these condi
tions, when the confidence of the pub
lic in this department should not be un
Justly disturbed, or its facilities foe
protecting the public health dimin
ished, that the man appointed to In
vestigate the department makes tha
amazing declaration which Commis
sioner Bulger makes thi smorning in
the midst of the hearing, when no tes
timony in reply is offered.
"Commissioner Bulger's public print
ed statements regarding quarantine
conditions affect noft only the public
mind, but the discipline of quarantine
on which the public is largely depend
ent for its health and safety."
In his letter ta Judge Bulger, Mr.
Dushkind relates some testimony taken
at the committee's hearing, and bases
his contention that Dr. Doty should bo
relieved from duty largely upon th
fact that Charles Leavitt, a carpenter
employed at Hoffman island, and four
other employes were permited to leave
their posts and attend the hearings.
Mr. Dushkind asserts that he fears pos
sible infection might result from such
Mr. Doty covers the point raised by
Mr. Dushkind with the declaration that
employes at Hoffman Island came in
contact only with prisoners held under
.observation, and not actual sufferers
from cholera, who are removed, he says,
to the Swlneburne Island Hospital aa
soon as they become ill.
Mr. Dushkind also calls attention to
the development or several cases oi
cholera at quarantine, as he alleges,
"several days after th period of incu
bation had expired," as further reason!
for reviewing the situation as "alarm
ing," and calling for the necessity oi
bringing it to the Governor's attention.
