Should Break Out Here.
MA PHISICIAK'S GRATE FORECAST.
," Thousands of People Kox Protected igainst
In view of the fact that an appropriation
ot 510,000 has been granted to the city for
the purpose of vaccination, a tour among
"the city physicians was made yesterday lor
the .purpose of learning how many people
there are in need of vaccination.
From these inquiries made some very
startling information was received, which
gives a striking illustration of the fact that
an epidemic of smallpox in this city would
find the greatest facilities for spreading over
every ward in Pittshurg with the most un
The vaccinating physician of the Eight
eenth ward, in a conversation with a report
er of this paper, said last night:
"Vaccination has been too much neglected
in this city. There has not been a general
vaccination tour made here for several
years, and it is astonishing how many peo
ple there are unprotected against the
ravages of smallpox. Of course the fact
VACCINATION IS NOT COSirtTLSORY
here prevents a general vaccination from
being ever very successful. Still one would
suppose that among intelligent people, such
a law would be entirely unnecessary. But
you would b greatly surprised to hear the
stupid excuses and objections, that are of
fered by people when you approach them
with the subject of vaccination.
"It seems to me astonishing, and makes
me lose faith in the existence of ordinary
common sense, when a man tells me that he
does not believe in vaccination being a pre
ventive of smallpox simply on the ground
that if he is destined to have that disease,
he will get it anyhow, vaccination or no
"I tell vou if once an epidemic of small
pox would swoop down upon the city, these
people who now laughingly scon" at vac
cination, on the plea ot predestination,
would be very much surprised. That such
danger is imminent, is made more and
more apparent to me every day. There is
ample material for it all over thp city. Let
my own ward serve you as an example for
all of them in Pittsburg.
THE HEAVY PERCENTAGE.
"From my personal investigation, I find
that there are about 400 people living in
this district alone who have never been
vaccinated. Just think of it, 400 And
there are families of them, of 6, 8 and
10 members, and all of them susceptible to
smallpox. Imagine for one moment what
ravages the disease would make among
those families if an epidemic were to break
out here. They are utterly unprotected.
Most of them are poor working people, and
cleanliness is not one of the characteristics
of many of the people in this part of town.
"Xow if we accept the fact that there are
200 people in every ward in the city of
Pittsburg who have never been vaccinated
an estimate very low you have 7,200 people
liable to take smallpox at any time, and if
once this dreadful disease has taken root,
there is no knowing where it will ter
minate." Unlike the IiAdies of the East, Amer
