Cuic.uio, April 13. Professor V. B.
Pratt and UogbAVightmaB, the elect ro
theraquetic, and the, bacteriologist of
Bennett col lego of tbis city, claim to have
practically piovod witbla tbo last week
that epidemics will be impossible in tbo
futnro Tliey, claim tbat Asiatic cholera
is no muru to bo feared tban olber acbes.
and l!mt diptlioiiit, slanders and typboid
must all yield to the new remedy, tbo
Roentgen raye. The various germs were
grown tu tubes in proper media. Mag
netic means of force from tbo Crookcs,
tube were patced tbrougb thetn. The
application lasted two hours. Cholera
was the easiest destroyed and appears
to have been uiped out entirely. Dip
tbcria lias been treated very tenderly and
favorably, but after eight days bas faileu
to sbow the slightest signs of life. There
lias been no activity in the bacteria of tbe
other diseases, and, witb certain modifi
cations, tbe doctors are now ready to an
nounce that tbe ray, properly applied
will destroy any form of infectious or
contagious germ. This is endorsed by
the college faculty, and the entire elec
trical equipments, the best in tbe West
will be turned over this week for future
proof of the discovery, which is now
maintained to be a fact.
Diplomacy Is Needed.
Xkw York, April 13. A dispatch to
the Herald from Madrid says :
Witb tbe employment of a little diplo
macy by the United States tbe impend
ing trouble with Spain can be averted.
Your correspondent is able to state this
most authoritatively after conversation
with the leaders of tbe two important
parties in Spain. If tbe United States
will approach tbe Spanish government
in friendly spirit and ask exactly what
conditions of autonomy tbe Spanish gov
eminent will grant to Cuba before the
former government recognizes tbe in
surgents on tbe island as belligerents,
tbe Spanish will meet such overtures
Senor Sagasts, tbe liberal leader and
former prime minister, said tbat tbe
Spanish government was certainly not
trying to force a war with the United
"It has taken," be said, "the utmost
precaution to protect the lives and prop
erty of American citizens in Spain since
this trouble began, all anti-American
demonstrations have been promptly
stopped and no American, np to the
present time, has suffered the least
Xew Yoke, April 13. Tbe Herald this
Tbe steamer Bolivia, of the Anchor
line, arrived from Genoa and Naples
yesterday. She brought 1376 Italian
immigrants. Sir hundred of them were
detained at Ellis island on the ground
that they are likely to become charges.
Of this number none bad more tban a
dollar or so, while many of them were
practically penniless. Dr. Sennersaid
that only about 10 per cent of those de
tained would be allowed to land.
Tbe steam :r Ales is, of the Fabre line,
also from Naples, reached the bar at 10
o'clock last nigbt witb 1064 more on
board. They will be landed at Ellis
island tbis morning. Tbe immigrant
authorities are appalled at the great in
flux of Italian paupers, ilore than
15,003 have already arrived, and Dr.
Senner bas received advices tbat 15,000
more are about to sail from Naples.
Dr. Senner is very anxious and is en
forcing the foreign immigration laws to
the letter, particularly id the case of tbe
Italians, in hopes of discouraging their
fellow countrymen, but tbis apparently
bas no effect on tbem. Uc has been
compelled to increase bis force of em
ployes on Ellis island, and has freguently
portuned the department at Washington
to aid in relieving tbe station.
Key West, Fla., April 13. The steam
tug George W. Childs, which became
notorious as a filibuster about a year
ago, is once more in the service of the
Cubans, and on Friday left Cape Flori
da with an expedition for the island.
The Cubans have been fitting out this
expedition for some weeks, and it is one
of the best equipped that has yet left
the United States. The parly was com
manded by Colonel Juan Monson, and
there were 100 men in tbe party half of
whom weie Americans. The Cubans
have been etoring arms and ammuni
tion on Cape Florida for three weeks.
Many of the arms were brought here by
steamer and then taken in schooners to
tbe cape. The schooner Cora Lee took
two cargoes from this place, and tbe
Dollie three. The steamer Three
Friends, of Jacksonville, which passed
down the coast a few days ago, also left
a lot of arms on tbo cape. It is said
tliat 4000 rifles, 50.CO0 cartridges, five
Gatliog guns and a large number of
pistols and machetes were stored there.
The tng Cbilds left here on Thursday,
ostensibly to bring a disabled schooner
to port, but tbe vessel proceeded to cape
Florida, tooV the munitions and men on
board, and sailed for Cnba. It is re
ported she effected a landing on tbe
I'inar del Kio coaet, being met by a de
tachment from Maceo's army.
Tbe Spanish vice-consul hero learned
of the expedition and informed the
United Slates authorities, who ordered a
revenue cutter to look out for the Bit
buster. The cutter proceeded to Cape
Florida and sighted the Cbilds as tho lat
tsr was making off. Tbe cutter gave
chase, but the Cbilds, bsing yery fleet,
was soon out of reach and the United
States vessel returned to port. It is said
the Washington authorities have ordered
no seizures to be made except in the ma
