NEWPORT NEWS TAKES STEPS TO KEEP YELLOW JACK OUT Probable Origin of the Contusion Be- lieved to Been llronght by an Old Soldier from to Confine tho Srourge to Present Location Hiimpton Washington, Aug. last offi- cial advices locnivod show a of !J7 cases and seven deaths from yellow t'over at tho soldiers' home at Hamp- ton, Va. ThuH far the disease has boon confined to tho homo, but all surround- ing towns aru excited and a vigorous quarantine is bujng maintained. Dr. Wiisdin of thn niuvii.e hospital service is in charge of affairs at Hampton, and is woiking in cooperation with tho local board of health. Already a number of inquiries have been receiver! by Dr. Wyuian from qiiarnantine offi- cers throughout tho United States ask- ing whether thoy shall impose a mari- time quarantine against Norfolk. He has replied that there appear.-) to be no necessity for such restriction in the case of either Norfolk or Newport Nows. Dr. Wasdin's official report of his examination of existing conditions at the soldiers' homo has reached Dr. Wyman. It notos the fact that the doctor has soeu all the cases of sus- pected disease at the home. He sums up the history of the contagion as fol- lows "Early in July un old soldier entered the liome for a short rest and soon afterward appeared at the dis- pensary, where he informed the pysi- cinn in charge thut he was but recently from Santiago via a transport to a northern port; thenco he started for Manila via San Francisco, beat his way to the home on a freight train and entered with his baggage. He complained of dumb chills and fever and was prescribed for. He mingled freely with the inmates of the home and a short time ago disappeared. From this, as a possible cause, the outbreak is as follows: Preceding Friday, the 21st, there had been no- ticed nothing of a suspicions nature. Tho weekly death rate was as usual. But on tho 21st and 32nd there became ill during tho night with chill, high t'over, some eight or 10 inmates, men of usually good health. These seizures, although noted as peculiar, had occas- ioned no alarm until about Thursday, tho STth, when a death occurred the mun becoming distinctly yellow some time prior to death. On about the same day another one died without attracting particular attention, he also tnrnucl quite yellow. Autopsies were held on both by a resident patho- logist. It was then or a little later that the telegram was sent you asking for an export. I found that there were inmates and thut 35 had been taken ill since the 21st." A SUIT FOR THOUSANDS. Hi ought Against Mrs. Kdily ivnil Other Christian Scientists. Boston, Aug.

San Francisco, Aug. officer of one of the volunteer regiments in he Philippines has written the follow- ng letter to the Associated Press Manila, June 27. The arrival of Jho rainy season finds he insurrection as vigorous as it has seen at any time since the outbreak. The insurgent armies are well re- 3ruited, notwithstanding their osses, and are well fed and clothed. They have profited by their five months f warfare against the Americans. They are fast adopting American tac- lios'ancl aro becoming better clisci- )lined and more skillful in the use of heir weapons every day. Over oldiers should be here ready for busi- ness by the beginning of the dry sea- 011 in November. Garrisons could hen be stationed at strategic points. A continuous warfare cannot be car- ried on in this enervating climate by he same trooua. Frequent reliefs art) lecessary. All are greatly debilitated. They are unfit for soldier duty and seems slow and unsatis- 'octory. As it is with them, it is so ikely to be with their successors. The i people of the Philippines are is highly civilized as the of VIoxico._______________ A POLICEMAN'S CBIAIK. aw York Patrolman Pleads Guilty of Theft from a Bead Hocly. Now York, Aug. Thomas F.
