EPIDEMIC OF CHOLERA SWEEPS
Disease Has Been Raging for a Year
and Efforts Have Been Made to
Keep the News From Reach-
ing the United States.
Manila P. I. June 11. An epidem-
ic of cholera Is swooping the Phil-
ippine. Islands and the Inhabitants
aro dying by hundreds In many parts
of the Interior. Extraordinary or-
.forts are being put forth by the healtu
department to keep tho scourge from
Manila but despite the combined ef-
forts of the city and health officials
tho disease- seems to have gained a
grip on tho city. Great alarm Is
Tho cholera has been raging In Uie
archipelago for nearly a year but Is
crowing decidedly worse with the
advance of the summer. Efforts
liavo been made to keep tho news of
tho epidemic from reaching tho Unit-
ed States because of the alarm It
would create there Cor tho many
Americans now In tho Islands. He-
ports that have been compiled show
that the number of cases have been
moro than 150000 and tho numbar
of deaths exceed 100.000. Mr. Wor-
cester United States commissioner
who has done good work in Improv-
ing tho water supply to save Manila
from devastation by Uie plague says:
"Many towns wero without physi-
cians or other persons capablo of
recognizing cholera so that numerous
cases were not properly diagnosed.
Many of the municipalities had no
sanitary organization .and no statis-
tics are nvallnble concornlng the
mortality among the pagan trlbos. In
numerals Instances tha ca03 were
concealed and false statements made
ns to tho cause of Uie death so that
official returns when they exist can
not bo accepted as complete.
The total cases In Manila to date
liavo been Cll -with 3038 deaths.
This Is a case of mortality of "7.2
per cent. In the presont year thero
liavo occurred In Manila 1179 cases
with 891 deaths giving a case mortal-
ity of 75.8 per cent. Tlioro have been
3309 cases and 2.GGS deaths among
women. In fourteen cases tho sex
was not noted. Thoso figures show
that tho number of men affected ia
about twice that of tho women. ThU
is duo doubtless to the greater ox-
posuro to infection of tho formor
while working on tho water front
and eating In the small shops where
food is sold to laborers. The case3
In Manila havo been distributed by
Taces as tollows:
Amorlcans ICS deaths 77. per cent
42.2; Europeans C3 deaths 35 per
cent S5.7; hlncso 383 deaths IS" per
cent 48.8; Filipinos 4457. deaths
3600 per cent S1.5; All others 33.
deaths 20. por cent C2.8.
These figures stictw a higher per
