extent vented upon me as the reputed at

Under these circumstances, in order

THE MEDICAL SOCIETY AND THE CITY CODI
The memorial presented to the City Con
in January last, signed by twenty-four m
bera of the Medical Society of South Carol
protesting against the cost of the Health
partment, was, it will be remembered, refs
to the Board of Health for consideration.
justice and propriety of this reference, on
part of Council, may be briefly decided
. Cuehing's "Rules of ^o<?eding and Debat
Dehberative Assemblies." It is there affin
as "contrary not only .to che laws of dece
hut to the fundamental principle of these
compact, that a man should sit and acts
judge in his own case."
The reply to the memorial appears at las
the proceedings of Council' of the 24th
March. This is signed by the Mayor, the (
Registrar, and six Aldermen, constituting w
is called the Board of Health. TM sod
cannot consent to compromise itself by ag
addressing the Council, so, in order to oort
the misstatements for the Board of Heal
_ places the matter directly before the pub
Our memorial showed, by contracted sit
menta and figures from the journals of Conn
that tho expenditures for the Health Dept
ment' during the last fiscal year, exceeded
At least $12.000 (exclusive of $40,000, Gove
. ment appropriation,) that of the years 18
1869, i860 and 1861. It also protested agaii
a proposed outlay, for converting the old wo
? bouse building into a city hospital. And fi
thor suggested that certain complicated hea
arrangements might be made more econo
leal to the city. The reply of the Board
Health is, we think, a misrepresentation of c
position, an evasion of the question at issi
. and a descent to gross personalities and triv
. side issues. We prcKieed to mate good this o
estimate of its value.
Attention is first called to our poverty, ax
ss the Health Board seem also to imply, o
littleness, by an exhibit of the small arnon
of tass we pay when compared with the bo
of aldermen. The fat aldermen are placed
one seale and the poor doctors in the oth<
Of course we strike the bt am. To the que
xian.of weight is affixed this argument; tl
criticism of the expenditures of Council by
body of doctors, who pay only one-sixth of tl
tax paid by the aldermen, is audacious ai
. misplaced. Those who have most at sta!
- must be most interested in the welfare of tl
A city, and. if extra vacant, th ev at least have tl
. , Tight to be eo. Is this argument legitimate <
tenable? Has not the humblest citizen, wt
payB only a capitation tax, the Tight to ran
nia voice in what concerns the public welfare
Taxation assuredly bears no less lightly upc
. the man with small means than upon the mi
: hon aire. If extravagant expenditure be ni
thing to a rich alderman, it may seriously coi
cern a poor doctor.
Is public economy usually the fruit of sal
. interest? Admit the mterestednesB of the a
dexxnen, and ts this necessarily a safeguard i
- their legislation, or an insurance against the:
- folly ? The owner of the frail bark that tn
verses th^ ocean and the muter who directs he
- movements are assured! v the parties most inter
e&ted in her safety; and yet statistics show be
S3 dispute that most of the recorded acci
ts to vessels are traceable to one or th<
sitter ot these much interested parties.
But cannot aldermen, in virtue of the!
position, better endure tho burden of taxation
They proverbially grow fat. Is it from thi
.share of the loaves and'fishes? Who are more
. Interested when bills before Gounod ara passet
'for payment? Why ia it that members Ol
Council are so often, elected to fill vacancies in
the various city Boards? Examine the ex
penditures of our public institutions, as th?
Orphan House ana Alms House, and the rea
.son seems obvious. Who xurniahes bread
and groceries, and dry goads and crockery '.

offices; those lor lumber, lime, cement anc
other materials used upon public works. I
our memory serves us right, there is an ole
city ordinance forbidding contracts between
.' 'the ?tty and-a member of Conned. In thu
?day of resurrection of ordinances long en?
tombed, wo ask our new Mayor if this one is
.enforced? This may be a small matter for
?ave doctors to advance, but the Health
Board is responsible for having placed us in
an insignificant position because of our paying;
~_WetwoaId'wnhngly beoome large tax-payers,
rat alas ! to reach this goal of our hopes we
must be placed m ' Bimi lax relations with our
patients, including members of Council, and.of
the- Board of Health who may rank as such?
as those established between the Aldermen
and the city: we mast be well patronized and
promptly paid, ... ;.
The impugnment of our motives by the sugges?
tion of a f e?iiDg of diaappoin tm en t on our parti
" in not having been able to carry out the wishes
of the trust?es of the Boper hospital, we might
pass by, because not affecting the value of our
Tacts or deductions, lt is not our province to
tight the battles of the Roper Hospital, yet we
deem it not amiss, in this connection, to remind
the Board of Health that the only complaint
ever urged by Council against the hospital was
its being managed by a ''close corporation."
On this account alone, the most sacred and
binding obligation of contract baa been violated
by Council. Why ia the complaint not stated
in language at once more truthful and more
easily understood? Why is it not openly an?
nounced that no Alderman sits with the Hospi?
tal Board; that the hospital extends no patron?
age m certain directions, but simply unfolds a
spotless banner Upon which is inscribed a re?
fuge for the sick, 'without regard to complex?
ion, religion or nation."
The Health Board indirectly charges man
of the signers of our memorial Tutu moDnsis
lency becka* ot thc 3torjmtbat "some
-were unsuccessful candidates for position
under the Health Department, and one a
strong advocate and at one time a holder of
office under thia department." Here, as in
other parts of the reply of the Board of Health,
much ingenuity has been displayed to impose
troon the publicthe belief that the Health ??>
partment and the City Diapoiisary are synonym
mons terms. Our memorial condemned thc
extravagance of the former, but uttered no j
word of reproach against the latter. Some al*
basion we did makefto an expensive combina-- :
tiou, under the new regime, in which the IMB> ?
pensary wsw included. Bet the single itera?8
extravagance noticed here was tbe ''large cd
s\ ditional compensation" af the Regis rrax or Su
" pervisor of Hospitals; and this we shall return
to m proper season.
We never questioned the necessity of tbe
Xuspenaary, nor doubted its usefulness. We
wore too well aware that the extravagant ex?
penditure of the Health Department could not
be laid at its door. We should now rejoice to
know that the hard-working dispensary physi
, dan bsd benefltted by the unexplained dis
/ buraement ol the public fonde. We used the
term Health Department in its only legitimate
sense, viz.: that in which it WSB used upon the
records of Council long before the present
health system(?) was contemplated. Expendi?
tures noted undnr this head, in bygone years,
we compared with those announced under the
same heading by the present Council. Some
of our number then, we grant, were "unsuc?
cessful candidates" for the Dispensary; one of
ns did serve in this connection, and we all feel
no reproach on either account. We honor the
Dispensary! We denounce the abominations
of the Health Department ! Thus we define
oar position! Thus we expose the ingenuity
and vicious personality of tho Board of Health*!
We oom e now to portions of the reply which
seem to be bona fide attempts to meet bur
charges. We are accused of assuming that
our a ty po polution is reduced in number when
compared with former years, and of conclud?
ing from such assumption that the expenses
of the present Health Department should be
proportionally less. Assigned .to this false po?
sition, we are met by the assertion that "there
is probably an increase of fifty per cent, in the
number requiring medical attendance now,
when compared with the samo population previ?
ous to the war." The man of straw is pol up !
and the man of straw 1B knocked down ! Our
memorial reads thus : "At present the white
population is, at the highest estimate, one
third less than formerly and in hospitals the
eiok from this class ar? certainly no more nu?
merous." An "increase af fifty per cent, in
hospital" the Board dare not affirm (and our
argument concerned th's chus of sick alone),
so they ingeniously declare an increase in
number requiring medical attendance."
venture to reaffirm our statement as tc
number of white sick in hospital. The
ot this opinion rests upon two facts. 1
the present City Hospital (the Tucker Ho
cannot accommodate the numbers of sick
prior to the war, were treated in the I
Hospital. Second, the Boper Hospital
during the past year, at ita own expense,
vided for many of the city sick, white anc
ored. We admit an increase in the numl
sick paupers in the case of the Dispen
And what then ? Will this prove the nece
of the terrible depletion of the city tres
by the 13 c o lt h Department ? Assuredly no
the Bureau, and not the city, provides
medical supplies for the sick,'and these
plica constitute the only serious item o:
It is exultingly announced tbat the R<
trar'a report for the past year has show:
striking decrease in the expense per capi
the present Health Department, when con
ed with the cost before the war." The gi
matical construction of this sentence prey?
perhaps, a correct appreciation of its sig
canoe. If the idea intended to be con vere
that the entire indigent sick cost the city
per capita than formerly, we think this t
than probable, as the government contrib
so largely to the support of this class. )
this confession of the Health Board com
greater difficulty in accounting for the li
additional cost of the Health Department.
Health Board has inadvertently told the tr
and thus verified our views, and establ?
most clearly the propriety of our protest. 1
expense per capita of the Board of Heal tl
thia Board controls the expenditure of
Health Department-is readily estimated
dividing that unexplained expenditure
$12,000 hy the member of the Board-exclu
of the present Mayor, who is not respons
for the past.
We are further charged with "ignoring a
getber the increase of the number of pan
freedmen, and thus placing the administrai
in a false light before the community."
our memorial again answer. After an alluf
to the liberality of the government to the frc
men, the memorial continues : "Ii we are <
rectly informed, it is in this way (through
liberality of the Bureau) that the sick of i
class are now supported in hospital. If ;
(the Council) are prepared to deny this,
may be enlightened in regard to your he
disbursements to the Health Department."
this ignoring the necessary expense of
freedmen? On the contrary, is it not m
specially recognizing this expense, and
plaining io w it is provided for. Is it possi
that the Board of Health would propagate i
belief that the sick freedmen account for ?.
heavy additional expenditure of $12.000, wi
they know that the Bureau meets almost I
entire cost ? Beally our* memorial was p
phetic when it announced that "perhaps I
sick freedmen would be designated as the cai
of the many abominations."
The Board of Health propagates anoti
error in connection with the sick freedmi
"The memorialists." they say, "know full VJ
that previous to the war slaves were paid :
by their owners if sent to the hospital, a
that it was a source of income and not of *
pense." Our knowledge enables us simply
affirm that the city never supported or kc
open any hospital for slaves.
Thus far, then, neither the silence of Cou
eil 'nor tbe reply of the Board of Health h
enlightened ns in regard to the heavy disburt
m en ts for the Health Department. There
but one conclusion. The explanation of tl
unusual expenditure cannot be made, or it
Such being the fact, we feel obligated to c
lighten the public to some extent by reportii
such discoveries as we have made on our ov
account. The memorial, it appears, gave gre
offence by an allusion to extra compensation
the-City Begierrar for services under the mo
recent health arragements, or by the rema
that such compensation was not foreshadow!
when the duties were accepted. This allusit
was not meant to be offensive. If personal,
was only so because, while discussing the e:
travagance of the Health Department, the sa
aries of officers had to be considered. Whi
denouncing the extravagance of Council, v
could not honestly ignore the expense i
the registrar. We trusted that this offici
woola at least have put himself right. He h:
preferred silence, or, what is worse, has ei
iorsed the reply of the Board of Health, th
misstatements and malignity of which we hav
fully exposed. He is more responsible fe
these than any other member of that Boarc
br his position enabled him to be better ir
brmed. We now regret the necessity for
nore direct allusion, which d as been rondere
necessary to the substantiation of opinions, o
marges, advanced in our memorial. If we d
nj us tico to the Council,'the Registrar, or t<
my individual by an error of statement, we
n advance, solicit correction, and most cheer
lally will offer amends.
Tho Registrar now draws eighteen hundrei
lollara salary from the city. Eight hundrei
lollara of this amount is the extra compensa
non for connecting the city with the Freed
lien's Bureau. When the bill for establishing
ihis connection was before Council for dis
suasiQn, there was a section providing for i
medal supervisory medical officer, whose sala
y would have been about oue thousand dol?
ara. Upon the strong ground of economy
his section was, upon motion of an alderman
itricken oat, or so modified that the super'
risory duties should devolve upon the Ci h
Registrar. -This officer certainly had the
privil?ge of objecting. He accepted the emptv
?ouor, and discharged the extra duties for six
nontis. Tbe same economist in Council now
lucceeded in securing the extra compensation
or the Registrar; ?nd'wbat was remarkable,
n view of the previous argument, the salary
res made retroactive. The empty honor
>roved a misnomer. Economy meant expendi?
ere. Bat this failed to satisfy the supervisor,
tod a clerk, at a salary of seventy-five dollars
>er month, was employed to assist with his
trduous duties. This assistant received his
appointment from the Registrar without the
iction of C -uncil ; his name is affixed to a "Pay
oil for th?. Health Department,'' which paper
s endorsed by the Registrar, then by the
klayor; and finally the Registrar draws the
unount called for from the City treasurer.
Chis pay-roll calls for a large amount apart
lom the balary of the clerk referred to. We
rast oar inquisitiveness will be excused when
wo ask why it is not presented to Council, and
has allowed to appear in the published pro
ieeoings of that body? The plan pursued

ions, bat certainly is Unusual in connection

But the connecting link was not yet suf
icien?y strengthened, BO the Registrar became

with the emoluments of this position, under

whether there is any monthly dues remaining

Finally, by an arrangement with the Collec?
tor of the Port, the seamen when sick are
turned over to the City Hospita). The annual
receipts to the hospital on this account amount
to some four or five thousand dollars. Only a
limited portion of this amount is necessary for
the rapport of the Bick seamen- certainly not
mott wan half. The remainder dees not pass
to the city treasury, but simply into the hands
of tbe Registrar, to whom attaches' opty a moral
responsibility for its expenditure. Sthis money
may, or may not, be spent for the benefit of
the hospital or tbe Health Department. We
desire to cast no suspicion of -akry violation of
the trust o i the part of the Registrar. But we
wish it to be understood ?bat the sum not
spent on the seamen goes boswell the expenses
of the Health Department, andu so mach addc4
to the already unexplained 'disbursement of th*
lt would appear that the Registrars office
has still greater absorbing power. At a recent
meeting of the Council a bill of the Registrar*
for extras for the -Health Department, to ike
arr ou nt of six hundred amd sixty-seven doihvrs
seven cents, was passed for payment. This has
a secret history. Neither the itemized ac?
count, nor the report-Af the committee of two
aldermen who recommended its payment, ever
appeared in the published proceedings of Coun?
cil. The bill was first presented ta the tress-'
arer for payment, simply with the Mayor's en?
dorsement. Payment was declined, so' tho bill
went to the committee of two. This committee
reports upon the claim as "amounts expended
by him" (the Registrar) "from time to time, cf
four hundred and sixty-one diShus fifty-tut?e
cents," and the additional sum of two hundred
and six dollars fi<ty-tour cent? "as required to
pay sundry small accounts contracte 1 for the
use of the hospital." The committee recom?
mend payment after having given the matter
"such attention aa circumstances and time
have permitted." This waa quite satisfactory
to Council, and the six hundred and sixty-seven

ed into the capacious pockets of the favorite
Formerly the Registrar had an office in tho
City Hall building. Now the office of the
Health Department is a newly erected buildmg
of his own, comer of Calhoun-street and Rut?
ledge Avenue, which bas not been assessed
for taxation, and for which, we are credibly in?
formed, be receives reut, and also wages fur a
servant who does the dusting.
It will then bo clearly perceived that a single
office in the oontrol of Council will account tor
V/ ? ? i~l ? M*MU A. WAI
mach of the vary large deficit notion g since
reported by the Committee of Ways and
Means. We are charitable enough to believe
that the Council have not realized this fact.
But, unfortunately for the public interest, the
occupant of this office is, by virtue of his posi?
tion, the controlling element of what is called
the Board of Health (as consituted it would
elsewhere not be entitled to the name), which
body decides upon the necessities of the Health
Department. Arnon? these necessities, let the
public remember, was the conversion of the
old workhouse building into a "most magnifi?
cent hospital," at the cost of $15,000, after, to
use the language of the engineer, the "demo?
lition of the massive walls of basement and
other partitions in the centre building, the
construction of extensive staircase arrange?
Our memorial predicted an extensive outlay
if this scheme was carried out. The engineer
has more than verified our opinions.
Let the public not be deceived by the opin?
ion of the unknown medical authority, quoted
by?the Board of Health, before whose vision
the workhouse looms up "one of the most
magnificent of hospitals." His name is sup?
pressed, but we suspicion it is only by looking
through the spectacles of the Freedmen's Bu?
reau at that $5,000,000 on deposit at Washington

In conclusion, we reaffirm the honesty of our
purpose, as expressed in tho memorial. While
we regret that our language was construed
into insult by members of Council, and consid?
ered personally offensive by some whom we re?
garded, and still regard, as friends, we remain
firm in our position, and calm in our assertion
of the right to consider the official acts of ]
Connell. An admonition of arraignment before
tho bar of PUBLIC OPINION may now, per?
haps, be disregarded, but the day is not dis?

DR. R A D Vf A Y'S
A NEW PRINCIPLE DISCOVERED.
One Bottle of Resolvent la Better Than
Ten Large Bottles of the Advertised
Sarsaparillas, or Direct Diuretic Bern
PHYSICIANS wonder at the extraordinary power o?
BADWAY'S RENOVATING RESOLVENT In curing
the worst lonns of Scrofulous, Syphlloid, Chronic
Skin Diseases, and its marvelous power in resolving
calculons concretions, affording immediate relief and
consequent cure of Diseases of the Kidney, Bladder,
Liver, Lungs, Pancreas, Spleen. Its rapid influence
in the cure of diabetes, Incontinence or scanty, tur?
bid, albuminous, cloudy urine; its almost Instant ef?
ficacy in stopping itching and painful discharge of
urine, and Ks singular power in curing discharges
from the Uterus and Urethra, L?ucorrhoa, Bloody
Urine, and other unhealthy and weakening dis?
charges;-and inquire wherein the SARS AP AR LL
LIAN used in the Renovating Resolvent differs from
ordinary Sarsaparilla* I Sareiparillian ls the only
principle in Sarsaparilla tbat possesses curative
properties; all other parts of the root are inert and
useless. One ounce of the extract obtained under
Dr. Badway'snew process for extracting the curativo
properties from vegetable substances, contains more
of tbe true principle of cure than twenty pounds of
the ordinary roots.
SARSAPABECLUN is only one ot the ingredients
tbat forms this truly wonderful medicine; and lt is
the only compensating remedy that communicates
its purifying, cleansite and reinvigorating proper?
ties through the BLOOD, SWEAT, URINE, and
other secretions, securing a harmonious functional
action of every depraved organ and gland in the sys?
tem. If the blood is corrupt, the Besolvent will
make it pure. If the Lung? are ulcerated and sore,
'?ereting thick phlegm and prurelent matter, the
Resolvent will loosen this deposit and repair the
wasting lung with sound and healthy material, jt
the Skin is covered with pimples, spots, pustulce,
sores, ulcers, kc, the Resolvent will quickly removs
these annoyances. If mercury ia deposited lu the
bones and has accumulated in the system, the Re?
solvent will drive lt out If the Throat of Bronchial
Glanda axe ulcerated, the Resolvent will cure these
signs of au early waste. Direct remedies, possess?
ing only exclusive properties, are hurtful, ss they
increase the functional secretions of on- organ by
suspending the constituent secretions of others;
hence, a compensating remedy like the Besolvent is
the only means of a permanent cure.
BEAR IN MIND THAT EVERY DROP OF BLOOD
impregnated with the Resolvent and absorbed to
Hupply the wsste of the body, wUl make pure, sound
and healthy flesh and flhrf. The first dose that ie
taken commences its work of purification and in?
creasing the appetite andfleth.

A GREAT SENSATION ! -A GOOD SENSA?
FAIN CURED IN AN INSTANT!
la 1647 thc great grand principle of stopping the
most excruciating pain in an instant without em?
ploying such dangerous agents as Chloroform,
Opium, Morphine, Aeon tine, Ether, kc., was first
made known in
RADWAY'S READY RELIEF.
This remedy accomplished this wonderful and de*
lightful desideratum in all cases of external and in?
ternal pain. In an matant lt afforded relief, the
moment it was applied to the parts ot the body
where inflammation or pain existed-It at once re?
lieved the patient of the most violent and excruciat?
ing pangs and throbs of pam, and imparted the de?
lightful sensation of ease and comfort.
Every kind of pain, whether Rheumatism, Neu?
ralgia. Toothache. Pal s in the Chest Side, Lungs.
Stomach, Bowvls, Kidneys, Spine, Legs, Arms, Feet,
one application was sufficient to kill and extern inate
Taken internally, twenty drops to a teaspoonful
would cure, and will cure, Asiatic Cholera, Fever
and Ague, Chills and Fever. Bilious (Jolie, Inflam?
mation of the Bowels, Cramps, yoasms.XiaiThcea,
Dysentery, and every pain that, may oxist pa .the in?
side of man, woman or child; Qua was- RAD WAY'S

LIEF, greatly improved, in 186$.
Wethen started it in'its mission of relieving the
infirm, pain-stricken, sick, distressed and crippled
ot all nations throughout the world, and now to-day
it is used, patronized and revered as a household
necessity, in the salaces of Sultans, Em peso rs,
Haimos, Kings, High Priests, Nobles, ns-well as in

CONGESTION OF THE LUNGS CURED IN
Important to Know how to Usc "Rad.
way's Ready Relief" in Acute
and Dangerous Attacks!
UT OWN CASE.
On Saturday night tho 19th, I was violently seized
with Congestion of the Lungs. For a few days pre?
vious I felt a dull pain over my left lung, with
occasional coughs, bul being actively engaged, paid
no attention to it When seized, the pam was so
piercing, cutting and excruciating, that every breath
drawn was like a red hot knife catting my lung. Be?
ing absent from home, I sent out for three bottles ot
RADWAY'S RELIEF, applied the entire lot to my
lungs, back, shoulders, Ac, and m a few moments
got up counter-Irritation. Respirations were easy,
and, as the akin became reddened, all pain ceased.
In half an hour I was tree from pain, and all signs
of Congestion, Inflammation, Ac, gone. This is an
important cure. It is well that every one should
know bow to nse this remedy ia severe attacks. The
same rule holds good In cases of Inflammation of
the Loins, Bowels, Kidneys and Stomach. Apply
the RELIEF freely; soak the skin with it It will
instantly secure the withdrawal of the inflammation
to the surface, and persons now suffering may, in
THIRTY MINUTES, be free from pain.
In cases where inflammation has existed fer a
length of time, in addition to the BELIEF, take six
of BADWAY'S PILLS. Powder th<7?\ In half an
hour, ia most cases, they will operate. If not re?
peat the dose. In one or two hours at the furthest
they will operate, and the patient soon get well. In
Bilious, Typhoid, Fever and Ague, this treatment is
sure to cure. Let it be tried.
