Citizens' Sanitary Committee does not

The argument 01 the Citizens' Saril

property because of Its proximity to

course has prevailed repeatedly nnd

this policy should be allowed. Fur
ther, it Is nrgued, that In the case of
the Hotel stables the evidence of in
fection Is moro conclusho than In
many previous cases, some of which

In reply, nllow mo to state tlmt the
Hoard has In no lnstanco ordered tho
destruction of property without first
making a careful Btircy of tho premi
ses and weighing all tho evidence
which could bo obtained ns to Infec
