POSITION IN AUSTRALIA.
MEDICAL COUNCIL'S MANIFESTO
SYDNEY, April 16. The Government haß decided to close all Bhops on Thursday night untii Tuesday. It is hoped that the general ces-
sation of business for four days will reduce the epidemic. The Medical Council has issued a warning against panic. It admits the seriousness of the position, but considers the mortality is not extraordinary. Between February 1 and April 5 1850 cases were admitted to Sydney hospitals, the deaths totalling 281, but it is pointed out that only the most serious cases were sent to hospitals. iProbably for every such case, ten to twenty less severe attacks were treated outside.
