Hons Drills Stopped.
WEICHSEL. -Silesia. Sept. 2. The ex
istence of cholera In two different dis
tricts of Gallcla Is confirmed by medical
Investigation. The first five fatal cases
occurred In the village of Padewnarodowa.
In the district of Mledeo TannowvesI, and
a sixth case In the village of Grodzisko, In
the district of Lancutt.
A sick raftsman, his wife and two chil
dren and a peddling watchmaker were
attacked by the disease in Padew. In the
MIelec Tarnow district, and also n rafts
man In Grodzlako. The local authorities
fear a spread of the epidemic, as boaU
men In floats are coming uninterruptedly
down the Vistula. River from the Infected
PrusslaA districts. The first steps taken
by the local authorities against the epi
demic were evidently Insufficient, as after
the burning of the belongings of the. first
victims at Padew the disease developed
there, but now the central and local au
thorities are taking up the work energet
ically. A high official dispatched to
Padew returned to Lemburg today and
ordered physicians to go Immediately to
threatened villages and the formation of
a, sanitary cordon In Nadhrzezie and
Chwalowlco. both of which villages are
situated close to the side of the VIstuIu.

FEARS NO GENERATj OUTBREAK
Russian Scientist Says 'Germ'an'Pre
cautions Are Rigid in Extreme.
PARIS, SepU 2. Professor Ell Metchnl
koff was seen at the Pasteur Institute to
day, and gave the Associated Press an In
teresting impression of his views on the
outbreak of cholera In Germany. The
professor added the important Informa
tion that the Pasteur Institute had just
received special detailed1 reports upon the
actual cholera cases In Germany, and
said he considered from the bacteriolog
ical examination made under his personal
direction that tho cases are unquestion
ably Asiatic cholera.
Notwithstanding this proof. Metchnikoft
expressed the most posltH'e convictions
that the German authorities could cope
with the disease and prevent Its spread
In Europe. MetchnlkofTs position as chief
of the Pasteur Laboratory during Its most
famous contributions to science and his
works on phagocytosis and Immunity,
give him a recognized place as one of the
foremost authorities of the world upon
cholera and other epidemics.
"I can assure you." he said, "from the
inquiry I have made and from personal
familiarity with the cholera cases In
Germany, that there Is no ground for
anxiety relative to a general outbreak
of cholera or its spread through Europe.
This opinion h? bassd . on knowledge of
the extreme rigorous and effective meas
ures the German authorities have adop
ted to prevent Its spread. From the meas
ures they have taken I am satisfied they
can prevent a further outbreak within Its
present HmltA Therefore, there Is no
rean to believe that the disease will
become epidemic as In 1SS2. I have re
ceived minutely detailed reports upon the
cases In Germany, which are really
Asiatic cholera, that fact being thor
oughly established by bacteriological ex
amination. HoweYcr, there Is "o fear
concerning a general epidemic, owing to
the thoroughness of the precautionary
"Could there be any danger to the
"United States owing to the steamship
lines connecting Hamburg- to America?"
the profewor was asked.
"I do not- think so," was the reply.
"When everybody In Germany Is on the
alert to prevent the spread of the dis
ease, and It Is my opinion that extraor
dinary precautions will not be necessary
In the United States."
Visits were then made to Dr. Saint
Yves, director of the department for the
prevention of epidemics, and to. Dr. Au
bert. director of the bureau of public
health. Dr. Saint Yves said: "You may
be sure there Is not any cholera In or
near Paris, and thus far we have had
no occasion to adopt any precautionary
Dr. Aubert stated that there was not
the slightest apprehension of an attack
of cholera In Paris. .
