THE CHOLERA. THE OUTBREAK AT GRIMSBY. The official notice issued by Dr Bruce at Grimsby I on Monday was as follows :—" The number of cases of diarrhoea reported yesterday was considerably less, and there was no serious case. The two men in hospital are doing well. No further admissions." A death occurred in Victoria-terrace on Saturday night from cholera nostras, and a death in Earl- street on Saturday afternoon from cholera nostras. Victoria-terrace is a handsome row of large houses in Cleethorpes-road, one of the main thoroughfares of the town, and is situate close to the boundary of Now Clee and Cleethorpes. The case here was a peculiarly sad one, the victim, a young married lady, a member of an old Grimsby family. In this instance it is stated that infection may have been incurred from contact with a previous case, which also termi- nated fatally. The other death in Earl-street was that of an aged man, but the symptons of disease were decidedly of a choleraic type. Earl-street is situated at the western corner of the town, almost as far distant from Victoria-terrace as is possible within the borough boundary. The following is an embodiment of the official re- port which the local sanitary authority forwarded to the Local Government Board on Monday :—" Sep- tember2nd, 16 caset! and three deaths; September 3rd, six cases and one death. On Monday there are two oases in the shore hospital and two cases in the float- ing hospital. All are being treated and all are doing well." The report has had a more satisfactory tone about it than previous notifications have had, and the outlook assumes a more favourable aspect. The following official statement, based upon tele- graphic information regarding the cholera outbreak in England, was issued on Tuesday evening by Dr. Thorne Thorne, principal medical officer to the Local Government Board:—"Five fre^h cases of cholera or choleraic diarrhoea came under treatment in Grimsby on the 4th inst., and one patient died. Twenty-two patients in all were under treatment." A DEATH AT BELFAST. A Belfast correspondent of the Freeman's Journal reports a death there from Asiatic cholera. A coach- painter named Galloway, who was ill on Saturday, became worse on Sunday, but refused to allow a doctor to be called in. He died hulf-an-hour later. Two doctors pronounced the case one of Asiatic cholera, but a third attributed death to failure of the heart's action. In the evening the sanitary authori- ties removed and interred the body. SUSPECTED CASES IN BRADFORD. On Monday morning a fish hawker named John Wa msly died in Bradford under circumstances which point to Asiatic cholera. He was seized on Sunday morning with choleraic diarrhoea and violent cramps, and all medical aid prove unavailing. He had on Saturday obtained a consignment of mussels from Cleethorpes. one of the infected ports. These have been destroyed, together with the remainder of the wholesale consignment. The interment of the body is ordered for Wednesday by the sanitary autho- rities, and all precautions possible taken. A second suspicious death occurred on Monday morning, the victim being a small shopkeeper named Hudson.
