Submits His 8ugxstlona Ta Arrest th Disease Ia Its Is- :. dpiency. TUX QTJAJLAJTTTJnE COJI VJLU'ZIOX. Dr. James M. HoDoway. the eminent physician of this dry, sounds a Bote ef warning to tha South. He believe th disease will sppear next summer, and makes valuable suggestions ss to how the pi ogress of the scourge can ba arrested, and ths death rate, therefore, decreased It win be remembered that Dr. Hollo-way was tba first physician to discover ths prevalence of yellow fever to th South last year. On August 14, 1397. th? doctor was called to see a sick sua at a LouisvtUs hotel The patient waa the New Orleans representative ot the Ahrens A Ott Manufacturing Company, of this dty. After carefully diagnosing the case. Dr. HoDowsy found that ths man was suffering from yellow fever, and tm-medlatety had him removed to St. Joseph's Infirmary, on Fourth avenue, where be died. Every place where tb man wss known to hsvs visited wss disinfected, and the matter was kept quiet In order to prevent a panto. Subsequent, ty, at different time during the prevalence of th disease, four ether deaths were caused by Tallow Jack to thla dty. On August It Dr Holloway communicated by telegraph and later by letter with the President of the State Board of Health of Louisiana. He Informed tb official of the first death that occurred here and sent him his clinical notes. He told him the man had probably become Infected with th dlseaaa at Ocean Springe. Miaai. where he had been spending the summer with his wife, and that he had made two tripe to New Orleans. He concluded by advising that a committee of physicians be seat to Ocean Springs to make aa investigation. His advice was acted upon and it was only tbrooan. the investigation of ths committee that the prevalence of yellow fever became known, though even the com m ft tee at first denied it. Th Qnarsntlns Con van tlon. On February t, 10 and 11 an Important assemblage of prominent men was betd at Mobil. Ala. It waa known as the. quarantine convention ef tha South A, tantio and Gulf States. Among tba delegates were lawyers, pbysiciana, com. merdal men, railroad men aad clergymen about 200 to att. There were also Invited delegates from tb North, East and West. Tb chief object of tba oon voation was to devise means whereby th difference between those who carry out the United States quarantine regulations and the Stat Boards of Health could be reconciled. The contention was mad that the friction betweea tb two aa to their res poet ire duties Impeded th work among those stricken with the disease. Th Important discovery mad to Lou-bTvlli by Dr. Holloway and the prompt action which hs took In notifying th proper sathorities In the South, caused him to fall Into popular favor with the Southern physicians, and a pressing to-vitatloa was sent him urging him to read a popular paper before the convention and to lead In several of the dlsoneskma. Th subject assigned him waa "To What Places May Refugees from Localities Infected with Tel low Fever Go, and How Should They be Msnaged and Cared For T Dr. Holloway wae the first resident student of Touro Infirmary in New Orleans. This was to 1865. and in lSM-T was a resident student of tha Charity Hospital. There were years when th dty was In th grasp of the dreaded Yellow Jack. He himself had yellow fever while there, and waa under the car af his preceptors; besides, before aad after Ms Illness, he nursed and took notes upon 101 esses in the Infirmary. In 1878, while a few cases of yellow fever prevailed In Louisville.. Dr. Holloway attended a number of the refugees who had the fever, and also a Bum bar of case that originated her. There ar few physicians, therefor, who ar better acquainted with th various phaaes of yellow fever than be. Dr. Holloway now serves notice upon tb South, believing aa ounce of prevention to b worth n pound of cur. During bin recent trip to Mobile, ba visited New Orleans aad other Southern cities. He says there baa aot beea frost enough thla winter to kill tb yellow fever germs, and that during the coming summer tb epidemic wil saia become prevalent. Tb fact Is admitted by many professional mea to tb South, he aaya, but the mea of commerce, fearing th effect,' will not even admit that the prevalent fever test year waa yellow fever. Tney claim tt waa dengue or "break-bone" fever. Dr. Holloway contends now that, for tb good of humanity, the warning should com from the outside. Ia th paper which be read before th convention be did not intimate the warning be now gives; but bis advice will undoubtedly be put into practical uae should tb fever break out agaln tbis year. aaa aUJTQTJAJLDS SUGGESTED. , , Dr. Holloway contends that yellow fever hi not as dangerous as Is generally believed. It Is ths frig hu the panic, that Is to be guarded against Fear, hs says, tends mors than any other agency to weaken the vital resistance. It makes people susceptible to the fever. , ' "Imaglas, aaya tha doctor, speaktor of ths flight from Ocean Springs, "near-, ly 4.000 men. women and children crowding cars, banging to the railing aad ooverlng th roofs, agonised by fright, exhausted by .fatigue aad hunger, aad at fever oeat from overcrowding. Imperfect ventilation and exposed to a midsummer sun. Could any other condition be more favorable for the development of disease? ' He recommends the course pursued ta 18S3, when the noted "Howard Aseocia-r tton" and the "Can't Get Away dub of Mobile, Ala did such admirable work. The Howard organization was mad up of tb fore-moat people ta the various cities. They mad a house-to-houe Inspection. They encouraged cleanliness. They Inspired ths sufferers and tb pankvstrtckea with hop and confidence. Professional men, business men and women of th highest: social standing' banded together in the great work. . They, ware parttculaEly SUNDAY MORNING. careful that tha sick were given the proper attention. "Our hearts swell with pride and krve. said Dr. Holloway In his paper, "when w recall that wonderful spectacle of Ged nobiemen the venerable Dr. Palmer. Rabbi Gutbebn. aad the poet priest. Father Ryanwho ta themselves were each a tower ot strength, bat, united, as loving brothers to ths common eauee, presented a solid prelaws at elevated humanity to their battling against dlseaaa and suffering; not to mention others less prominent, but to their sphere of usefulness equally brave and xaalous, with hearts ss big and voices as soothing and touch as deft th good Jonas, W. .

The scheme, then, ss laid before the convention at Mobile by Or. HoUoway. wa aa follows: That tha convention should urge th proper authorities to so organise as to be able to hare to each village and township to districts liable to infection a foree competent to isolate th first cases of yellow fever and to car tor those who ars to become refugees that they might b less likely to carry ths germs af Infection to their hosts, that car should be taken that thee refugees leave their home divested of all soiled clothing and with as little bag. gage as poasible and mafcs It possible to have these wen aired and disinfected.
