PhysiciaosDecIare That Typhoid
Is Not Epidemic.
NO EEAL CAUSE FOR ALARM
They Say Recent Reports Have Been
Grossly Exaggerated and the Dls
HisC Is Less Thau Normal Expres
sions of Practitioners in Every Sec
tion Show the City to He Healthy.
Typhoid fever is rot epldimlc in Wash
This statement is based upon the opinions
of a large nunilier of phvsicians, represent
ing every section of the city, who were in
terviewed this morning b) The Times.
Recent reports of the prevalence of this
disease hive been greatly exaggerated, as
the appended interviews will show. The
malady, so far from being epidemic, is
less than normal, and no panicularscclioti
shows an appreciable increase in cases.
The phvsicians upon whose opinions this
view is bated, are general practitioners.
Their patients are among every diss, and
without exception thev declare that Wash
ington Is this fall in tui extremely healthy
condition. Their statements disprove the
alarming reports recently circulated and
are of a character to reassure the commun
ity. MERELY A SCARE
Dr. L L. Frederick, 320 East Capitol
street: "No, sir; it's a scare. The nunilier
of cases of typhoid Is subnormal in the
northeast, and those which have come
to my attention hav e been of I he very mild
est type. There have been, perhaps, a
Hrger number of malarial fever cases
this fall lhan last, but typhoid is very
scarce. That which eIsis can be traced
to pump water, excepting these cases
which have lieen Imported that Is, brought
home by people w ho hav e spent the summer
Dr. W. P. C. Ilazrn, fall East Capitol
street: "I think that few cr cases of typhoid
fever have been brought to my attention
tills season than last. I ;m confident that
no more have "come to my notice. Tin re is
usually some typhoid at this time or year,
but nt present the number of such is very
small Indeed, and ihe mortality very light.
This Is the experience of the other local
physicians with whom I have talked.
Some of the cases are importations, and
those that arc local are clearly traceable
to polluted pump water."'
"Such little typhoid as has come to my
notice Isthercsult of drinking pump water,
but I think that there is less tvphoid in the
city than is usual at this time of year.
There Is a good deal of remittent fever,
Dr. Demorest. 644 East Capitol street
"I have no ease of tj plmid at present, and

NOT A TYrilOID PATIENT.
Dr. Edward Barslow "No, I am attend

that it is so common as it has been in the
past, before attention was called to Ihe
need of Improved sanitation and the dan
ger lurking in impure drinking water."

this commented on by several M. D's.,and
no tvphoid prescriptions have been com

Clerk at Park Pharrrncy: "There seems
to be iiulte a iair supply or malarial fever
