4In a long conrersation with a dispatch
reporter yesterday, Dr. Rankin kindly
furnished a history of the slacue. Among
other things he said:
"As the influenza or epidemic catarrh
feas'made its appearance in different parts of
Europe, starting with the Czar of Bnssia,
jre have been expecting its appearance in
the United States. "Within the past week
our anticinations hare been realized. This

HISTOBYTDF THE DISEASE.
Its bibliography is summed np in the
following: The first medical history we
have of this epidemic dates back to the
fifteenth century, 1E10. Of all epidemic
rHnpuspn it is the most universal, and the
rapidity of its march and extent of its range
over land and sea, sometimes in coin nemis
Svheres, and in different climates, in opposite
seasons and in all varieties or weatner.
among people of all classes is remarkable.
The French call it la grippe. It has been
called coccoluche, because those attacked
wore a cap close over their heads. The
symptoms of the disease as it then occurred,
nearly resembled those which it has
assumed in later visitations, severe pain
-over the eyes, sneezing, coryza, a difficulty
of breathing, coarseness, loss 01 strength,
and appetite, fever and harassing cough.
"Of the first epidemic reported, its course
seems to have been in a northwesterly direc
tion, from Malta to Sicily, Spam, Italy,
.Germany, .France and txreat .Britain. Ur.

except some children. The next epidemic
appeared in 1557. Dr. Fonseca says in this
year it in:ested Asia, thence came to Con
stantinople, and. having spread itself all
over Europe, afterward attacked America,
its course being westerly. Dr. Mercatus
(states that before the beginning of autumn,
'1557, Jt attacked, all parts of Spain at once,
iso that the greatest part of the population of
(that kingdom was seized with it almost on
the same day. Unlike the epidemic or 1510,
it was fatal to many. This catarrhal epi
demic again made its appearance in 1580.
lit was in Sicily in June, at Some in July;
in August at "Venice and Constantinople;
in September, in Hungary and Germany; in
October,on all the Baltic coast; in November,
in Norway; in December,in Denmark,Poland
and Russia, its course being from east and
X -'south to west and north.
"The influenza of 1658, of which Dr. "Willis
has given us an account, visited .Europe
suddenly In April, and was followed in Au-
gurtby a fatal epidemic fever. In 1675
another epidemic of influenza'began in Ger-
'imany in September and in England in Oc-

America. It was first noticed about the
middle of November in different parts of
Germany. Edinburgh appears to have been

on the 17th of December, and it raged at the
came time in Switzerland. It appeared at
London and in Flanders the first week in
January. Toward the middle of the same
month it reached Paris and Ireland. In
February Leghorn was attacked, and near
the end of it Naples and Madrid suffered.

.Europe. InEngUnd it increased the deaths
in London in one week to a thousand.
The next remarkable visitation of the
influenza was in 1762. An excellent de
scription of it is given by Sir Georze Baker
'in his "De Cattarho Epidemico anni 1762,"
who records its appearance in London on
the 4th of April. Prcf. Bazoux has given
an account of the same disease which

- "The next epidemic catarrh in order of
time was that noticed in .London, and differ
ent parts of Great Britain, by Dr. Fother
gill in the latter end of the year 1775. It
(was observed also in France, Holland and
Germany, and was supposed to be more
Total in those conntiies than in Britain.
The influenza of 1782 was general over

"The influensa of 1831, though-generally
mild in its character, was almost 'universal,
for it seems to have prevailed in both hemis
pheres m the same year. Acconnts have
been received of its appearance in India, as
well as in the United States of America.
In many places it has been the precursor of
the epidemic cholera. This epidemic of in
fluenza swept overtbe greater part of En
gland, Scotland and Ireland in. the spring
and autumn. Late in the autumn it attacked
Paris, the South of Spain, Gibraltar and
Italy, with more severity than it did the
British Islands. At Boniest, was said to
occasion great alarm.
"In Berlin 30,000 people were suffering at
the same time, and at a later period 45,000
in Paris. Another severe epidemic of this
disease prevailed in Europe and the United
States in 1832, 1837 and another In 1843. It
has been estimated by Dr. Graves that in
Dublin 4,000 persons died of the influenza
"Among the phenomena relating to the
weather, which seem to have bad a con
nection with influenza, either as pre
cursor or attendant signs, we may
notice extraordinary vicissitudes, east
erly winds, thick or offensive
fogs. Influenza is generally a disease of
either spring or autumn. The "spring influ
enza has sometimes occurred when the first
heat suddenly followed the winter'scold,
and the autumnal when the cold moisture
and rain fogs of November have succeeded
to the heat of a dry sumnter, yet there has
not been a uniform connection between any
one sensible quality of the atmosphere, as to
heat or cold, rain or droueht, wind or calm,
and the prevalence of this epidemic; for in
different nlaees it has maintained itself un
der the dominion of each of these states of
"There are no particular phenomena in na
ture that universally characterize the epi
demic constitution which precedes, or that
which accompanies the. influenza, and we
are led to conclude that the causes of this
epidemic, supposing them to take their rise
in atmospheric changes of a universal na
ture, are tar from being marked by uniform
ity in the signs. At the same time we are
bound to admit that the sndden changes
from warm weather to cold, -and from cold
weather to warm, with dampness, fogs and
easterly winds, have rarely been absent
from the list of natural indications.
"The influenza, like every other epidemic
disease, has given occasion to "medical ob
servers to entertain very opposite views on
the question of its contagious property.
Upon the whole, it would appear that some
ceneral cause, if not originating, at least
subsisting in the atmosphere. and -depending
on its changes, progressive also in its
movements from place to place and from
country to country, gives rise to the disease,
bur that it is probable that a limited propa
gation also takes place bypersonal inter
course, under the influence and during the
prevalence of the epidemic. Milder epi
demics of influenza have appeared id this
country at irregular intervals since the last
above reported, but none have compared to
the one that occurred in 1837."
Hundreds of the residents of Allegheny
were sneezing yesterday, and all who were
afflicted were positive that they had la
grippe. Jndging from the European dis
patches, it is no respecter of age or condition
in life, and on the Northside this fact has
been plainly and painfully demon
strated. Even the street Arabs,
while selling papers or blacking
boots, stop every once in awhile, look
heavenward and sneeze. The little boys
who read good books, and go to Sunday
school, are interrupted by la grippe, while
reciting their lessons. The professional
men, the business men and the1 gentlemen of
leisure have it. The washwomen, the ser
vants and the ladies of .fashion have not
escaped. The clerks are very much an
noyed, and claim they lose many customers,
just because they have, to turn around and
sneeze in the middle of an elaborate dis
course on the good qualities of an article.
The Bev. H. B. Cowl, pastor of the Union
avenue church, was unable to preach yester

"My back aches, my head aches, and
every bone in my body feels as if it had
been broken," was the way be described his
condition. "I don't know-where X got it,"
he continues, "unless it was from my boy,
who had something like this last week, it
may be only a bad cold, but -it is the worst
attack I ever bad. There are many cases in
this neighborhood, and within -the next
week I expect to hear of many more."
Dr. Kirker was seen in his office on North
Diamond street yesterday, and when asked
what he knew of the influenza said : "There
are a great many cases in Allegheny, and
from the way it is spreading I believe there
will be double the present number by New
Tear's. Many physicians are inclined to
laugh it off, but I have seen several patients
yesterday and to-day who were very ill. We
treat it only as a severe cold. There is no
medical term for it, because it has never
been so universal before. It is not danger
ous in itself, but the after e'ffects are bad.
The victim feels depressed both in mind and
body. I know of a case where the patient
practically recovered ten days ago, but he is
yet weak and debilitated.
BAD TVEATHEB FOB THE SICK.
"The present weather is very bad for con
valescent people and persons who nave weak
constitutions. It is the kind of weather
which breeds the germs of disease and
makes such an epidemic possible as the one
theynre now having in Europe. The vic
tim is attacked very suddenly. I saw a lady
the other day who was enjoying'the best of
health at 10 o'clock in the morning, and at
2 o'clock that afternoon I was at her bed
side. There are also more cases of typhoid
iever in Allegheny than we have had for.
In this connection Dr. Edmundson said
yesterday that he feared an epidemio of
typhoid fever was imminent. Within the
past few days a few cases of a'very malig
nant type nave come under his notice, and
the remarkable weather is conducive to its

ME.XOUBTZ'S POINTED REMARKS.
He Sys They Don't Cara Whether They
-' Get Rapid Transit or Not,
ALLEGIENICOIffiCr.LMEN ABB EEBBED
The test of the new electric car on the
Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester line
which was to have come ofl early yesterday
morning did not materialize. The car is
still at the short line stables, an object of
wonder to the railway employes. The
cause gjven for the experiment which did
not take place was that the patentee did not
have all bis machineryon hand, and post
poned the test for several days. "Whether
it will be a success- or not i; a matter that
cannot be answered at present. The patent
was worked successfully on the Bidge road
line in Philadelphia, and the inventor
claims it will also work' in this city.
The car is equipped with a storage electrio
battery which propels it along the streets.
It is an electric system of -transportation by
which no wires, overhead or underground,
are needed. It is very cheap, and if it can
be worked successfully it will "be a formida
ble competitor of cable lines iaA. other sys
tems of electric roads.
From present indications it looks as
if the Manchester traction line will not be
in operation for aflbng time. It was ex
pected" when the idea of changing the mo
tive power was agitated, that the horses
would be superseded, with cables or elec
tricity within one year. The matter is in
such shape now that it may be several
yean before anything is doneT It is tied
up in Allegheny Councils, and according
to the statements of Commodore Kountz,
the company does not care whether the
Councilmen give them the privilege of
changing their motive power or not.
The Commodore was seen at his residence
yesterday afternoon bv a Dispatch reporter.
To the questions of the latter the Commodore
said: "The matter of granting ns permis
sion to change oar motive power is in the
bands of a Councilmanic Committee. From
present indications the people will have to
elect a new set of Councilmen before they
get the rapid transit they have been
clamoring for. Nearly every man in Coun
cils wants us to do something, if yon please,
for the permission they give us for chang
ing onr power. The line is better stock to
run with horses than it would be to run it
with the cable. If the members of
Councils exercised the same spirit of
liberality that is shown us by
Mr. Kennedy they would subserve the
interests of the people better than they do
at present. Mr. Kennedy has tried to" get
the thing through because he knows it u
going to benefit the people. He is a young
man, with a great deal of liberality and a
desire Jo, encourage improvements to the
"Councils have no right to make any de
mands upon the company other than to re
strict the rate of speed of the cars within
the city limits. I do not believe that they
should be allowed to run at a faster rate
than nine miles per hour. When the Coun
cilmen get outside this and want to meddle
with the tracks and other matters they are
going a trifle too far. If I owned every dol
lartin the company I would run the road un
til the day of my death before I would be
coerced into doing anything that is not
equitable with honesty and fairness. I
think 'I speak the sentiments of President
Dalzell when I say the road will rnn with
horses until Councils do what is right with
us. Ii the people complain let them. We
can stand it as long as they can.
A DON'T CASE SPIRIT.
"We have shown our willingness to glYe.l
uie people rapiu uaua, .u. we cannot get
permission to change the power we do not
care. We have a charter to rnn a horse car
line, and as long as the dividends are satis
factory to the stockholders we will continue
to run the cars with horses. Our charter is
perpetual, and there is no compulsion abont
giving the people rapid transit. Until the
Councilmen come to their senses we cannot
do anything. After we get permission from
Councils it will take three months before we
could get jour iron made. Then it would
take five months more to tret the road built
"No, the company will not reduce the
rate of fare. We sell five tickets for 25
cents. The object in making people pay 6
cents for a single trip is to force the regular
patrons to bny tickets. When they do this
the company gets the money. When every
person pays their fare in cash the company
takes what is left by the conductors. I do
not care what the members of Council think
ofthe matter. As far as I am individually
concerned the fare will stay where it is at 6
On the other hand the people along (Ohio
and Federal streets are very much opposed
to four tracks on the streets. They object to
giving ine streets np entirely to railways,
especially when two tracks would answer
the purpose. They are also decidly opposed
to ,thc payment of 6-cent fares, and a most
beautiful fight is yet to be waged before the
matter will be settled. Bapid transit has
made travel on the streets exceedingly dan
