ALL TALKED CHOLERA.
Physicians Disagree on the
-AN EPIDEMIC IS NOT FEARED.
Dr. Wood Asserts That Fear Is as Fatal as
I FORI! OF TREA1HEXT SUGGESTED
The most important matter developed
yesterday in relation to the expected cholera
-visitation was the meeting of a number of
the physicians of the city with Mayor Gour
ley and other officials in the Mayor's of
fice. A discussion of cholera and its cure
and prevention were iven out as
the objects of the meeting. but
the v discussion did not amount
to much. An organization was formed by
the selection of Dr. E. A. Wood as Presi
dent and Dr. Matson, Secretary. Subse
quently it nas decided that, as the organ
ization would be an irresponsible body,
without having a legally constituted head,
Dr. J. G. McCandless, as the practical head
of the Health Bureau, was selected as the
executive officer, nnder whose direction all
the physicians will act in eveqt of an epi
demic. Every doctor present signified a
'uillinsness to act nnder those circum
All the suggestions offered indicated, a
beliet on the part of the physicians who
liave been watching the progress of the
disease closely, that there is no danger of
an epidemic this year but that it is sure to
come next year. In statjng the objects of
the conference Dr. McCandless indicated
this, saying the city had two temporary
hospitals that could be used if needed
this year 'and one now being
built, to bo completed to-day, which
will be uselul next year if needed.
"The city could now accommodate 200 pa
tients at any moment." continued the Doc
tor, "and his in readiness a large force of
Tolunteer physicians and nurses. Arrange
ments have been made for the safe and
proper disposition of all refuse, discharges
and other matter likely to spread the con
tagion. I believe the city generally is in a
good sanitary condition, and if it is kept as
clean, which I believe is the intention of
the anthoritics, cholera will have little
chance to spread. "
Talk From Experience.
Dr. Murdoch said he had seen many cases
ot cholera in 1854 while he was at Bellevue
Hospital, but the methods for fighting it
now were far aLcad of any in use then. "I
have little fear of an epidemic," he contin
ued, "that the city and its capable physi
cians cannot control. I think quarantine a
food thing, but the fact of there being but
ittle cholera in England where there has
been no quarantine at all shows the present
epidemic is not traveling rapidly.
However, the Mayor and the city officials
deserve great credit for what they have
done, and I see no reason to add anything
more. As to the bacilli, they multiply by
geometrical progression in one day from
one germ to one million. I know there is a
great danger, but I think every precaution
is being taken. Chemists are now trying
to make money out of the scare by putting
eo-calleddisinfectants on the market, and
the public should be cautioned from pur
chasing these useless patents. In event of
cholera reaching the city the destruction of
all discharges and apparel of patients
fhould be insisted upon. It is one of the
best means of keeping the disease down."
Chief Brown said the city had not bought
ouv but the best known preparations So
far 500 barrels of copperas and 100 barrels
ot lime had been used.
Dr. McCandless exhibited two bottles con
taining mixtures prepared by Police
Surgeon Mover for use in emergencies, at
nil the police stations, to be given any one
likely to be taken sick on the street They
were diarrhoea and cholera remedies and
were approved by the conference.
Fear Trononnced Fatal.
Dr. Wood made a short address on
cholera in general He said:
"I think one of the first things we should
do is to disabuse the public mind of the fear
of cholera. Fear is fatal in any disease.
It causes peoDle to take disease very often
and often aggravates their condition. I be
lieve cholera is one ol the easiest diseases
to prevent the medical fraternity have to
deal with. I don't believe it contagious or
infectious and our people should know that
they can go where it is, even nurse patients
suffering with it, if they are careful to keep
their own systems in good order and avoid
taking the cholera germs into their stom
achs. I don't believe one will take cholera
even it they should breathe the germs into
the mouth or lungs or have it injected into
the blood. Only when the germs get into
the alimentary system is there an v danger."
Dr. E. P. Thomas took issue" with Dr.
Wood on the contagious nature of the dis
ease, declaring that when the germs settled
on the clothing they were dangerous, be
cause they were likely to reach one's food
and thence find their way to the stomach.
"When the germs become dry they circu
late through the air," he said, "and it is
impossible to prevent their introduction
into our food. People should be warned to
stay away from any person suffering from
the disease. Keep as far away 03 possible.
I don't believe it contagious" from a dis
tance, but it certainly is Dy contact If it
were not there would be no such spread of
it as Bussia and Germany have suflered."
No Danger This Tear.
Dr. McCord believed no danger need be
Apprehended this year but commended the
good work done by the city's officials in
preparing against it "But "there are two
things that should be done," he said, "and
if I were a Councilman I would introduce
ordinances to compel it Oue is that the
city be given an annual cleaning up every
May and kept clean for the balance of the
year. Just after the winter has passed the
city is like one's home, needs cleaning,
and the city, like a good house
keeper, should see that every nook and cor
ner is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected
at that time. Another matter requiring a
remedy is the practice of street hawkers
selling vegetables and fruit which the re
tail grocers would not handle and which
commission merchants get rid of tor a song
to these licensed peddlers. It's an outrage
that this impure, ro;ten stuff is allowed to
be hawked and sold to the poor people of
our city and the men who do it should be
Dr. Burleigh and Dr. W. a Foster also
took part in the discussion, the latter assert
ing that the practice of sweeping the streets
without first sprinkling them was not only
a great inconvenience to people on the
street, but was calculated to spread disease
by germs from the gutters being distributed
through the air. Dr. Burleigh said the
people should be warned against treating
diarrhoea cases at home. As soon as such a
case developed, he said, the family phvsi
cian should be called in. In this way an
unsuspected cholera case could not escape
On motion of Dr. Mover a committee
consisting of Drs. McCandless, Wood,
Mojer, Dickson, Grube, Mercur, Foster,
Thomas and Burleigh were appointed to
adopt a general lorm of treatment of
cholera patients for use in event of an epi
demic. This committee will have a confer
ence to-night and when the committee is
ready to report the general organization
will meet to hear it
In addition to those already mentioned
there were present at the meeting Drs.
McCann, Rex, Joseph Dickson, Mercur,
Sands, Miller, Barchfield, Phillips, Hiett,
Bell, Brunbaugh, King, Clark and Matson.
Dr. McKee, ot Ford City, was also present
