Opinions of the Different Local Drug

Early Attention of the
The muthods In vogue with the offi
cers of the Board of Health In pur
vliaslng drugs (or the government phy
sicians having been questioned ttic bul
letin has mode an effort to secure the
statements all parties concerned.
From on Inspection of the accounts
nt the Board of Health, It appears that
the blllJor drugs lait 'year 'was over
$12,000, Vbt this t$Mm T,000 was for
drugs fWIolokal; the remainder was
for drugs for government .physicians
throughout th9 IsU'nds.
Formerly Jnose. drugs were pur
chased on'"tefjdera made by the differ
ent druggists." This business like
plan was discontinued" 'by the former
Board of Wealth and' the present Board
finds the' system 'among the .various !
legacies Itflias Inherited. f
Dr. Raymond, president of tho Board
said: "Requisitions aro now made by
, .the country government physlelans,
which are sent to the oHce of the
Board of liealth. The purchases are
then made b Executive Officer Pratt.
As tho public knows, tho affairs of the
Board of Health are In a transition
stage. This matter of government drug
purchases Is one that I have not yet
, had time to take up In detail.
Howover, I will say that my plan for
a reorganization, of. the Board, nax
business basts will settle the drug pur
chasing matter satisfactorily to all.
There will bo a purchasing agent, If I
have my way, who shall be competent
and responsible. All we want Is a
chance to straighten things out.
"As to tho merits of tho old system
of purchnscs on tenders or bids, you
mny say for mo that I know of goods
purchased by tho Board of Health, then,
at high prices, for which the govern
ment got Inferior drugs. The lepers
nnd tho poor patients got tho worst of
It. I propnso to do away with all that.
I propose to see to It that wo get good
drugs and tho worth of our money.
"If my suggestions as to the appoint
ment of n Health Commission nnd a
purchasing ngent aro carried out, I
-think wo wlir have a Health depart
ment second to none In the world.
"There may bo grievances from
tradesmen. I will say, however, that
If Benson, Smith & Co. have had tho
inost of tho business, It Is probably be
cause they have furnished tho best
goods. They always give a square dent
and, If any favoiltlsm Is shown by Dr
Pratt In uIb purchases, It must be for
"Howover, I do not think Dr. Pratt
lit tho man to show favoritism to any
firm.- He Is working hard for the puln
11c and Is not receiving tho credit (
know to bo his due."
When seen by the Bulletin man, Dr
"Tho Board's purchases of drugs
amounted In round numbers, last year,
to $12,400, When I came Into office, I
found things running this way and as
President Raymond's policy seems tn

necessity to return to the tender sys
tem, merely for b short time.
"The business ls"now divide Among
the local druggists. In fact, TVion't
know much about the business myself,
as tho requltstlons aro taken In hand
by Secretary Wilcox and forwarded by
him to the druggists. ''
"Unless something1 unusual appears
In the requisition, Secretary Wilcox
checks tho druggists bill with the
requisition and the bill Is paid without
examination by the Board,"
T. W. Hobron of the Hobron Drug
Co., when told that the Board of
Health claims to bo dividing the gov
ernment drug business equally among
the houses, said: "Well, our business
with tho Board of Health last year
amounted to $100. All of this, however,
"Was not direct purchases by that body.
I think It Is a greaj. hardship to the
taxpayers, nut to liavo this drug busi
ness submitted on bids. If the Board
of Health wants to buy a broom, It
calls for tenders; If they want drugs.
It Is another matter. When the tender
system was In vogue tho government
patd for drugs not over $4,500 annually.
I do not believe the Increase In popu
lation has been sufficient to warrant t
drug expense of three times that
amount. We liave had no opportunity
to bid for this government drug busi
ness." George, W. Smith of Benson, Smith
& Co, said, that as a member of'th'o
Board of .Health, I know nothing of
tho system of purchasing drugs. It is
In tho hands of tho exec.uttve officers or
Secretary Wilcox. As a member; of lhls
drug firm, I am satisfied with the meth
ods of tho Board of Health, We get'a
little business. I have no knowledgo
of what the other druggists are doing."

that the food Is as good and plentiful

A story of desertions from the Am

from one of tho privates. Ho told of a
negro named Kagan who had deserted
and gone over to tho Filipinos.
Through the agency of this man, the
Filipinos were prevented from doing
much damage to the Americans. The
negro had deserted on account of harsh
treatment by officers. Many American
soldiers had deserted for the same
cause, although but few of them had
gone over to tho enemy.
