Mr. Robertson thought tho Court of
Claims and nil the resolutions wero out
ot order slnco first the matter was laid
on tho table. Ho did not ngren with
tho Executlvo or Council or Chamber
of Commerce. Thcro wero only two
wnys proposed: to pay only those
claims for which tho Government was
legally liable or to pay all claims, de
manded by tho Chnmber of Commerce.
Ho did not think the question ot lc
gnl liability could bo submitted to any
Court ot Claims. Ho bassd his opinion
on English common law nnd statute
law as well. Tho right was Inherent
to abolish a nuisance. This was
ns far ns the Doird ot Health
had Rono In stumping out bubonic
tloncH Httindn t'trm.
Mr. Jones snltl thnt In no mo tiling
ho ngrced with Mr. Hobertson on othrrs
ho did not. He thought tho Legisla
ture must provldo tho moncy. Tho
whole matter must be sifted and com
promises made. The matte. should

Bhould ho considered, hut ho had not
held they should bo paid. It .-ailing
for justice was revolutionary, ns tho
Minister of Finance had said, then ho
wuntcd to bo written down ns revolu
tionary. It Is not n question ot wheth
er wo enn afford to pay, but it Is a duty
wo must carry out by paying all honest
nnd just claims.
This wns his position, concluded Mr.
Jones, nnd, It It wns revolutionary,
let them write upon his tombstone
"lllc Jncct Revolutionist." (Laughter
Referring to tho discussion of tho
previous tiny Mr. Jones pointed out
that Minister Damon hnd mado n
strong nrgument for paying claims
when ho had alleged thnt tho people
had burned Chlnntown. If this Wuo
true, tho people ought to pay for It.
Ho hero rend extracts from n letter
published by W. It. Castle lately, sup
porting his view. Tho Oovcrnmcnt

nnd ho hoped It would be so kept by

DRAIN OFF THE BACTERIA
IraprovdiKDts Made Id Plumbing of
the Judiciary Building.
Promptly Attended To -Dr. Garvin Does Not
Anticipate An; Particular Dangtr Drain
ing From (be Laboratory.
Wednesday morning plumbers began
work at tho Judiciary building to com
plcto tho connection ot the drain plprs
from tho sinks ot tho bacteriological
and food departments with the cess
pool In tho rear of tho building. Upon
Inquiry it was learned there was ample
reason for tho work, ns tho pipe lending
from the sink of tho bacteriological
department had been emptying upon
tho ground under tho door slnco and
before tho plague began, nbout Decem
ber 12th last.
When the Food department was es
tablished tho nmount of drnlnago was
small nnd wns counteracted by tho
lnrgo nmount ot sulphuric ncld dh
charged nlmost dally. When the bac
teriological department wns transfer
red from Knllhl the same arrangement
wns used without Inquiry, and so con
tinued until discovery wns mnde by Dr.
Prntt In tho dlschargo of his duties
us sanitary building Inspector. Th?
mnttcr, upon ills complaint, was nt
onco Inquired Into by Dr. Garvin,
Executive Officer of tho Hoard of
henlth, who gave orders to Mr. Howell
to have tho necessary Improvements
Immediately made to abate tho danger.
Dr. Carvln was seen this morning by
a representative ot tho Bulletin and
stated the facts as nbovo given. He
ndded thnt ns soon ns he lenrned tho
truth ho hnd acted, but, after thorough
Investigation, thought the danger hnd
been overcstimntcd. "I Bnw Dr.
Camp," Bald Dr. Garvin, "before he
knew the drain emptied upon tho
ground and he assured me tho sink and
drain had been disinfected twice each
day with carbolic acid, slnco the be
ginning ot tho plague. I think thero
will bo very, llttlo danger, but at tho
samo tlmo tho steps now being taken
will do away with nny further menace.
Dr. Garvin admitted thnt tho connec
tion with tho cesspool bnck ot the
building would only remove the dnngcr
of one Infected spot to another, but
said that the cesspool could bo easily
disinfected. If needed. He doubted very
much whether any Infected mnttcr hnd
yet passed the drain, other than tho
wash water from tho cover glasses of
prepared microscopical specimens.

and believed, had been destroyed by
