Brunswick, Ga.,Sept. 19.—With
the announcement of yellow fever
being officially epidemic , in thi«
city another batch of refugees
packed the trains which left last
night. Mora ara expecting to
leave to-night; as all means of
departure from this doomed oity
wiU be at an end whence day
, dawns to-morrow, for even? avenue
of exit is being guarded. Sur-
geon Oeddings, in charge Jiere,
has given instructions to the she*
riff to place sentinels at every
crossroad leading out of the city
Steamers plving between this citv
and the adjacent islands, whioh
are populated with refugees, will
be discontinued; Armed patrol
boats will cruise in the bay, creeks
and rivers surrounding snd emp-
tying into the harbor for the pur*
pose of overhsuling any craft
laden with passengers seeking re-
fuge on the surrounding islands,
where other refugees are oamped.
The only means left for those
here, if they should deem it ex-
pedienttd flee, WlM be after to* dar * •

RSAny TO CLINCH.
Washington. Sept. 19.—Signe art
that the silver debate may be brought
to aa sad at an early date. Senator
Voorbaes again asked the leaders of
the silver men in the eenate whether
there was any prospect of their com-
ing to an agreement aa to a titne
when a vote eenld be taken on the
pending question, and Senators
Dubois of Idaho and Teller of Celo-
redo ,both republicans, anewered that
there were many epeeobes yet to be
delivered by the eilver men.
Thia wae eboat as definite an am-,
wer as Voorbeee bae yet eaeoeeded in
getting. He then eaid that he ebonld
ask that the sessione be prolonged
and foither, that the raeu favoring
the repeal sheald be on band to-
Teller, presumably leading the
eilver forcee asked the silver men to
be preeent to meet the new move to
be made by the repeal men. After-
ward both sides notified the eenatere
on theireide to be oa band.
It is said that the vice president
and Senator Gibson eontem plated

There has been so mooh talk about
the possible attitude of the president
toward future eilver legislation that
the matter has become irritating to
In oeaversation witii a southern
senator ta-day be is reported te have
said that all reporte as to his being
inimioal to eilver were false. He
wanted the Sherman law repealed,
end when that was done if there ware
not some w>«s and good silver laws
it would be the fault of eoflgrees.
Tbi«, eon pled with the utterance of
both Senators Lindsay of Kentucky
- - . and Mills of Texae that they were
and stood sxactly as the
to-day at its noon ssssion:
Brunswick, Oa., Sept. 18,
To the Public:
"At a meeting of the Board of
Health, Jield this noon, and opon
reports of the praotioing phyai
dans, the .following official an-
noun cement is made ty this
board: Toar,new cases have de
veloped in the last twenty-four
hours ending this noon. During
rthe same perio4 ons patient,was
president has gono.far to appeeee the
fears of silver men who have none of
the mstel for sale but who began to
believe that the overthrow of the
Sherman law meant,the absolute death
of silver as a moaey metal. As
tbese diapatches have heretofore said.
I believe the whole matter will finally
be settled by the adqption of the
French treatment ef silver that is, by
the coinage of a certain amoant of
silver ana a stoppage, er that the
money eeined will not be forced to
fluctuate according to the productive
discharged and 40 death record^ J power of the miners. It might be
that the eilver men, having ao silver
fer sale, may finally oonolude that

SMatdcgicleUea end they may con-
clude to 1st the repeal bill some to
Mr. Toorheee PsHie opinion is
tbs most potest factor under the
ftsn in conjunction with the press.
ijfMkef that portion of the preee
mevesin a lofty stmospUere,
where tfotji and lattice prevail; not
of thet portion which deals in mias-
matic mendacity and poisons every
thing about it. I rpevk with the ot-
most respect to the great orgaoe of
public opinion; not in four of them
not the slight en t. but of respect of
them as agents in humsn affairs. A
vote has to come oa tbs repeal bill
When will a vote be agreeable to the
Mr. Dubois [rep] of Idaho said
many senatore were yet te be heard.
It a as not usual to prevent senators
from being heard then they desired
to speak nor were senators accustomed
to be hurried or threatened, "ilj
own impression is" said Dubois, "that
the senator in charge of this measure
had better proceed iu an orderly
manner and the customary way. He
will reach a result sooner by that
oourse. The opponents of repeal
were ready to join iasaa with its
friends, whether it be for longer ses-
sions, continuous sesiona er cloture
Passage of the repeal bill would eound
the death knell of silver as a money
metal. No jugglery with words oould
obscure the the issue. Senators
would talk sweetly about internatio-
nol agreement forcing Euglned and
bimetallism but when the pending bill
was pa sb ed the doom of silver was
sesled and senators all knew it. You
shall not commit this deed if we can
prevent it by any honorable moa ns
knows to the usage of the senate.
Oar duty is plain to ns. We believe
we are tbe last hope end bulwark of
the people in this great struggle. Be
therefore ol)jeoted to the request of
Mr. Teller gave notice that when
daily sessions wsre extended into tbe
night the advooates of tbe bill as well
ns its opponets would have to be pre-
Mr. Mills of Texas took the floor
In conclusion Mr. Mills raid he
would vote te repeal the Sherman law
and against every amendment which
the ingenuity, 'of the human mind
oould ooueeive. No amendment
could be offered to the bill except one
whioh impeaohed the good faith of
tbe president and that be did not in-
tend to do. He was a free coinage
maa, ft biinetalllst, but would not fol
low the bimetallic flag into a mono-
metallic camp. He wonld doss his
remarks oa this oocasion with a sen-
tence with whioh Jobn Adame began
a famous speech: "Sink or swim;
live or die; survive or perish. I give
my heart and my hand to this vote."
Mr. Stswart said the silver standerd
and liberty were preferable to gold
standard and slavery. Those oppos-
ed to the repeal bill sought no com-
promise. If they went down, tbey
went down protesting.
