At yesterday attcmoon'H meeting ot

up tho matter of alio rumors started
by various peoplo In town In regard to
the plague. ...r. Smith referred par
ticularly to tho rumor ot tho conceal
ment of two cases of the plaguo from
tho Queen hotel the other day. Ho
stated that this had been started by a
Mr. Irvine, n clone In L. B. Kerr s, who
was seen a aout the matter and who re
fused to tako bacK a thing ho had said.
Tho information in regard to tuo ru
mor had been given to him by C. B.
Ulpicy, who said that Mr. Irvine had
made the statement In a down town
ofllco that ho had seen tho pest wagon
call at the Queen hotel and tako away
two bodies. Having learned this bo
called upon Mr. Irvine nnd found that
ho was willing to swear to his state'
ment. Mr. Smith mado tho statement
that tho starting of such a rumorr at
such a tlmo without ascertaining the
facts, was dastardly. Such a man was
a criminal and a falsifier ot tho worst
kind. President Wood stated that
thero had been no concealment of any
cases, nor had there been any secret re
moval of bodies. During tho lire on
Saturday when peoplo wero being ro
moved to different temporary camps,
a number ot peoplo too sick to be re
moved far had been discovered. Among
tho number wero two Japancso who, at
