Country merchants refuse to buy goods at Buda-Pesth, fearing infection, and business in all lines is stagnant. Railway traffic is almost suspended. The police, in their anxiety to stamp out the disease, are enforcing severe measures. The -fumigation of dwellings is resented by "the ignorant populace, and numerous conflicts between the officers and the citizens have occurred.

Several of the officers were so badly scalded that they had to be removed to a hospital. Will Resist tho taw. WASHINGTON, OcL 8.—Chow Tai and; flip Lung, two Chinese merchants from..

' ';. •• t '' 1 "-"• : TEE CITY IS BUXTIXG. YOSK, Oct. S.—After many months of preparation the great New York celebration of the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America by Columbus was ushered in to-day by special services. in the various synagogues of this city. The city iu many quarters displays profuse decorations, and it is believed that by Monday hardly, a house in the city will be without some semblance of decoration in honor of the great event. Save for the elaborate displays of bunting and booming of the big gun on the Governor's island in honor of th<i arrival of the French war ships there were few visible occurrences to mark the opening day of the Columbian celebration which will roach over next Thursday. i'reiicll Warships Arrive. The French cruiser Arethuse, the •flagship of Admiral de Librau, from BostoD, has arrived in quarantine. She carries twenty-four guns and her officers and crew number -ITS. She will re-present the French government during the Columbus celebration hsrc. Hussar has also arrived in the lower bay. An Old Congregation. The Spanish and Portuguese congregation, the oldest congregation of Hebrews in this city, held special services in the synagogue at Fifth avenue and Nineteenth street Eabbi Pereira Mendes officiated.- This congregation was formed 200 years ago by descendants of the Hebrews driven out of Spain in the famous expulsion of 1492, and the services were out of the ordinary in consequence of the dual anniversary. The ancient ritual was read with traditional chants, and the music consisted of melodies dating back prior to the expulsion. The rabbi delivered a special sermon. The services in all the Hebrew temples were distinctively patriotic, differing only in. this, that the synagogues .adhering to the rigid ceremonials of .the orthodox faith permitted no interior decorations to interfere with the severe simplicity of the services incident to the Feast of the Tabernacles. 'At." the handsome temple "Emanu- El," Fifth avenue and Forty-first street, which possesses the .largest congregation of tho Reformed Jews in the .U-nited States, the pulpit was festooned .with United States flags and bunting and the fruits of the country, lavishly displayed, symbolized the Feast of the Tabernacles. In some of the synagogues the customary intonation in Hebrew of the Psalms appointed for the day (the ninety-fifth and ninety-sixth. Psalms) was replaced by patriotic hyms. In all the temples the children were made participants and sang in honor of the country and the flag. Decorating the City Hall. The city hall is the most elaborately decorated building down town, although many of the newspaper offices about Park row are using a great deal of bunting arranged in graceful designs. .On the city hall American, Italian and. Spanish flags are looped everywhere in an endless chain covering the front of the building and strung from the many flagstaffs to the roof. The coat-of-arms of the United States and New York are displayed at the cornices, framed in Italian and Spanish, flags. A large gold-framed oil painting of the Santa Maria, Columbus' flagship, will show above the center of the balustrade. The United States coat-of-arms, draped with the American colors and topped by an American banner, will surmount the painting-. An oil painting of Columbus 5 by S feet is set in a drapery of flags of America. Spain and Italy, topped by a •United States shield and banner, directly over the center of the main entrance of the building. The cost of decorating the buiWing was about 51,200. Expect n Million Visitors. It is estimated that over 1,000,000 people will witness the parade next week. About 80,000 of them will have seats in stands that fit into every aperture in, Broadway, Fifth avenue, about Union and Madison squares, Fourth avenue, and in the open space at the south end of Central park. Seats on the stands are sold at £1 apiece. Al- inost every window from which the spectacle can be viewed and places on roof tops have also been sold at fancy prices. It is estimated that the' citizens of Nev,- York have spent, or will spend by Monday, at .least 8300,000 in decorations. The boxes and seats oa the stands will realize in. the four days .of the spectacle almost S3SO.OOO. This amount, minus the expenses, will go toward defraying the cost of the great snow. INDIANA.
