2 SANFORD’S LITTLE SCARE. JACKSONVILLE INVESTIGATES AND QUARANTINES. No Diagnosis in the Case of the Two Deaths but Room for Grave Appre hension-Only Four New Cases and Two Deaths at Tampajin the Past Twenty-Four Hours. {Sanford, Fla., Nov. 1. —Dr. Taylor, of Lake county, was here to-day investigating the yellow fever rumor. He is thoroughly satisfied that there is none here. He will immediately order Lake county’s quarantine off. Dr. Daniels, of Jacksonville, was here to day, and is satisfied, personally, that there is no yellow fever here. Not a member of the Hoard of Health could now officially ad vise the quarantine raised. The doctor re turned to Jacksonville this morning. He ■will lay' the facts before the board. Dr. Brunner, of Savannah, is here, and will in vestigate thoroughly. He is likely to make a post mortem examination of the colored woman who died vesterday. and then make an official report." The people are much quieter than vesterday, and no alarm is felt, There is one case of slight malaria in the city. Father Swembergb, of Orlando, died in ’l'ampa last night. SANFORD QUARANTINED. Jacksonville, Nov. I.—The two deaths from fever under suspicious circumstances yesterday in Sanford induced the Duval County Board of Health to seud Dr. Daniel, a yellow fever expert, down t here last night on a special train to ascertain the facts and report them. Dr. Daniels returned this afternoon anil made an official report to the Board of Health, in which he says that no reliable diagnosis could be obtained, but ad; Is: “There is undoubted room for grave apprehensions under the circumsiaoces and I am very sure the authorities of Sanford are so impressed in regard to the matter themselves.” Pre ferring to err on the safe side the Duval county Board of Health has declared a rigid quarantine against Sanford. Trains will not lie alioweil to run to the latter city but will stop some miles out and be met there by trains from Sanford bringing the mails aim through passengers Through | ass-ngers will not be allowed to come to Jacksonville, but wiil be trans ferred at the junction outside of the city limits to roads leading north. Sanford is 125 miles iron' Jacksonville by rail and 200 mijes by riv er. The wenthcr is cool and there was a heavy frost this morning. There are no fears of u spread uf the disease. Dr. Caldwell wired the board to-day that the quarantine station would be moved to a point between Plant City end Seffner so as to stop all refugees on the four railroads centreing thereabouts. Father Slavrel, Vicar General of the diocese of St. Augustine, located at Man darin, left yesterday for Tampa. It is said'that a third patient ill under suspicious circumstances is in a precarious condition at {Sanford. The lioard here wore somewhat amused over the BuHoch episode In reply to their notification of the doctor's arrest, the Savannah board telegraphed that they had no desire to interfere with the quarantine regulations here, and added: “When you have got through with him, will receive him.” The members were ajnused over tne philosophical way the case was treated, anil several jokes at Dr. Dulloeh's expense were indulged in. He is “rusticating” at the ''sand hills,” as Duval’s quarantine station is called, but don’t seem to enjoy the close attention recently paid him. News is received here of the death of Father Swendiergh, the Catholic pi lest who volunteered to go to Tampa from Orlando at the death of Father Peterman. Father Swembergh came here a year ago or so, and then was sent to Orlando. He was a promi nent figure in the late local option elections there, as he opposed the temperance side vigorously. The Jacksonville and St. Augustine base ball clubs will play a match game here Tnursday on the fair grounds. The pro ceeds are to be devoted to the Tampa suf ferers. A GOOD SHOWING AT TAMPA. Tampa, Fla., Nov. 1. — To-day there were but four new cases, and two deaths from fever, Father Swembergh and L, P. Anspaugh. Twenty-five patients were dis charged by the physicians to-day. There has i>een lio frost yet, but the weather is cool. But sixty cases are now under treat ment. Physicians advise refugees not to retro liefore the last of the month. FLORIDA’S METROPOLIS. A Man Assaulted Two Months Ago Sudd nly Dies. Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. I.—Last week Ned Murphy was sentenced to thirty days in jail for assaulting Hilliard Henderson, ut Pa'oio Beach, two months ago. Henderson was hit over the head with a piece of scant ling and badly hurt, but he seemed to re cover. Last night he died suddenly and a jury was impanelled this noon to inquire into it, as ir was thought that Murphy's blow caused his death. Others say his death was caused by excessive drink, as he had been on a prolonged debauch. Both are colored. Dr. Keuworthy held a post mortem on Murphy’s remains this afternoon and the jury in the case adjourned till morning. Four dwellings and u store were burned in LaVilla this evenihg. The occupants and losses were: Dr. Vvright, $150; Mrs. Mann, $250; J. Wood, $100: Isaac Dowl ing. $2,500, 'Hie latter owned all the buildings.

Found Dead Near Jesup. Jessup, Ga. , Nov. I.—The remains of an unknown white man were found about o:ia mile and a half from Josup in the woods. A tramp sailor passed here übout two weeks ago sick with consumption, and it is be lieved that the deceased is the same man. He had two Ge.inan bibles und a sailor boarding house card, bearing the address of Mias Louisa Cambridge, proprietress, No fcJ Elliott street. Charleston, K. C., among his clothing, in a sack such as sailors use. His body luid been so badly eaten by buz zards that no one could re-'ognize it.

Senator Colquitt’s Speech -An Old Flag Cut for Miss Davis. Athens, Ga., Nov. I.— The opening day of the Northeast Georgia Fair has been per fect. There was a large crowd on the grounds and eight trains a day are drawiug large numbers of jieople into the city. Senator Colquitt delivered the opening address. He called attention to tiie display made by every section of Georgia in the ex positions in Atlanta and Macon and Athens. He said the South had made a decisive and practical answer to the slanders of sectional lioliticiaus at the North, who contended that the people of the South were lazy and indolent, and were devoting their time to war memoirs and bulldozing elections. He said Georgia had proven that there were elements of enterprise in every section of the Slate, and that while devoted to the memories of the past, she had made a wonderful prac tical revelation to the people of the North and South alike. lie paid a glowing com pliment to Jefferson Davis’ daughters, who sat before him, calling them the brightest jewels iy the Southern cross. He said he rejoiced to know that Southern farmers mi l partisans, although crippled by the war, had gone to work to build themselves up without asking a bounty from the govern ment or without asking to prosper at some body’s expense They sought to thrive by no false system of protection, but were striving to succeed by manly sell n nance. This allusion of Senator Colquitt was the only one ho made to the tariff and was clmered to the echo. Mrs. Hayes and Miss Winnie Davis were then greeted by the old veterans, who oa-sml before them in double file and shook hands with them in their carriage. Both ladies kissed the old battle Dug of uie Troup artillery, Capt. H. H. Carlton cut trom the ci ois two stars and presented them to the .....ijnters of the Confederacy in a beau til’u. pi axil amul wild cheering. Miss Win nie Davis said, as she clasped the star to her breast, while tears tilled her beautiful eyes: “I prize this so much, and yet it is a pity to cut that brave old flag.’’ SALES DAY AT COLUMBUS.

The Knights of Labor Bou :d to Make a Stir in Louisiana. New Orleans, Nov. I.— A special to the Times-Democrat from Biloxi, Miss., says: “About GOO men, including opster openers and the boatmen m the employ of the can ning company here, struck work to-day. The striko was ordered by the local assembly of the Knights of Labor. Some time ago shippers and j lackers were notified that unless 10c. per 100 lor opening oysters was paid on and after Nov. 1 their employes would strike and call off all the boats engaged in fishing. The shippers and packers have resolved not to accede to the demand of the strikers, and all of them will soon shut down their estab lishments throwiug thousands of persons out of employment. So far as heard from there has been no trouble among the strikers and sugar plant ers to-day. STRIKE OF THE SUGAR HANDS. Pattbrsonville, La., Nov. I.—A gen eral strike among the hands on the sugar plantations was inau fu rated this morning on the lower echo, in the district between Bartells Sta tion and Morgan City. All the places above Grandwood are stiil working, and all the places below, and including Grand wood, are either idle or working with a few white hands. The planters nre a unit in resisting the demands of the strikers, and they hare no doubt about, the result. There is a feeling of intense bitter ness throughout the district against certa n prominent leuders who have urged on the strike, and if the matter is not promptly settled there is no telling what the resuit will be. A letter received this morning from a well-known citizen of that city explains the situation of affairs in Terre Bonne, St. Mary and La Fourche parishes. Because they are threatened with eviction from he plantations, the strikers have become demonstrative and threatening. The letter reads as follows: “The negroes passed a resolution in their meetings to re sist being put off the plantations by force. Tuesday and Wednesday have been fixed by the planters as the time to have the Sheriff move them off. Judge Allen has promised to be here Tuesday, so as to be able to try cases. I fear trouble Wednes day.” Chicago’s Striking Printers. Chicago, Nov. 1. —Two hundred and fifty union job printers, over half the whole number in the city, went on a stfike tills morning.

What Is Going on in South Carolina’s Chief Seaport City. Charleston’s gala week is in full progress The Northeastern railroad is importing Italian labor from the North. The Lutheran Synod of South Carolina will meet at Prosperity, Newberry county, on Monday. Rev. J. J. Monaghan, of Greenville, S. C., will succeed Rev. Father Duffy at the Charleston Cathedral. Father Duffy goes to St. Mary's. At the approaching fair of the Mechanics’ Union a beautiful nickel-plated Pullman sleeper lantern will be voted to the most popular conductor on the South Carolina, Charleston and Savannah and Northeastern railroads. In the October number of the American Art Journal, published in New York, is an article purporting to give the authorship of the tune to which is sung: “John Brown's body lies a mouldering in the giave,” and sometimes the words “We’ll hang Jeff Davis on a sour apple tree,' 1 and which came over the picket lines and was transformed into “We’ll hang Abe Li‘Coin on a sour apple tree.” The article in the Art Journal ascribes the authorship of the tune to a Charlestonian. Careful in quiry in Charleston, says the News and Courier, has failed to develop anybody who has ever heard of the alleged author, Mr. Steffe. Musicians and poets alike profess their ignorance of any knowledge or tra dition concerning him. It is possible, how ever, that Mr. Steffe may have flourished four or live generations ago. It may be mentioned that the tune of “John Brown’s Body’’ was a well-known plantation melody in this State for many years before the war.
