CORDONS BEING FORMED Authorities Fcnr a Sprcnd of Epl demlc Because of Boatman Erom Infected. Prusslun . Sec; 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. Every raftsman returning from Prussia Is subjected to a medical observation of five days. At present the districts of Nisko and Landcutt arc mostly threatened as most of the raftsmen of the Vistula belong In these districts. 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 measures adopted." "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 measures.' Dr. Aubert stated that there was not the slightest apprehension of an attack of cholera In Paris. . SWEEPING OVER GERMANY. Disease Reaching Across Empire From Eastern Borders. BERLIN, Sept. 2.
