SWINDLER SAYS HE WILL FIX
Many Milk Producers Pay Money to
Smooth Grafter In Hope of stop
ping Passage of Fictitious
Playing of the prejudices and antag
onism which many of the dairymen
Who supply Los Angeles consumers
with milk feel for the board of health,
a smooth stranger already has suc
ceeded in mulcting them for several
hundred dollars, to be used in "fixing
the council" to prevent the passage of
an ordinance requiring the Pasteuriza
tion of all milk.
Councilmen say they have no Idea of
considering such an ordinance which,
they aver, would not be countenanced
by the board of health If they did.
The attention of Health Officer
Powers was drawn to the work of the
grafter by Live Stock Inspector Young,
who discovered the case during the
week while making his rounds among
the dairy herds. It Is a part of Mr.
Young'B duties to condemn live stock
that la afflicted with contagious dis
eases and have all such destroyed, and
on account of thia fact he Is not very
popular with the dairymen.
■At a number of dairies where he
called last week he was greeted with
such expressions as "You people are
trying to hound us to death but we've
got a man to fix the council."
Further Investigations proved that
the man who was to fix the council had
declared that an effort was being made
to have an ordinance Introduced de
manding the Pasteurization of all milk
supplied to Los Angeles, and that the
grafter had collected from $5 to $25
from a number of«the dairymen to be
used as a fund for lobbying purposes.
Mr. Young found a dozen cases where
money had been paid over for this pur
pose. He endeavored to learn the name
of the wily stranger but found that he
had given a different . alias in every
The board of health has no idea of
demanding the Pasteurization of milk,

precautions be taken to keep the milk

HOSPITAL PATIENT IS UNDER
Physicians Deeply Interested In Ballor
Suffering With Ankadotloma Duo.
denalls, a Dreaded Form
Physicians at the county hospital nre
deeply Interested In an unusual case
which was brought to their notice when
Anto Balaom, a Norwegian sailor, was
brought In six weeks ago suffering
with a form of dysentery which Is
much feared in the orient. The doctors
diagnosed the case as nnkadosloma
duodenalis. This disease Is said to be
much dreaded In the Philippines, where
each year thousands of deaths are at
tributed to It,
The case now at the county hospital
Is the eighth of the kind ever reported
If successful In their treatment of
the case of Balsom the remedies used
by the county hospital physicians will
be of deep Interest In the annals of
medical science. Inquiries are coming
In from physicians who have become
Improvement shown recently In Bal
som's case gives rise to the belief
among local physicians that the coun
ty hospital doctors and those men at
tending the case have discovered a
successful means of treatment.
According to records In leading med
ical Journals, the form of disease In
question was first known in the United
States two and a half years ago. The
case was one that had been contracted
In the Philippines and the patient had
developed It en route to this country.
Some months later a similar case was
discovered in a Pacific coast seaport
town. There were some doubts re
garding where the malady had been
contracted, and later a case was
brought to light in which there was
no doubt but that it had been taken
and developed in the United States.
Since then the cases have become
more frequent and the disease better
known. Six weeks ago Balsom was
taken to the county hospital In a ser
ious condition and his case excited
much interest through the west. .It is
one of the few so far and will be
watched with interest.

NEW HAVEN, Oct. «0.-Jud*e B. M.
Warner of Putnam, Conn., called at-
tention to the serious social economic
problem of the "rounder" In an address
In Bristol yesterday. Judge Warner
urges a reformatory course of treat-
"Drunkenness," he said, "furnishes
seventy-flva per cent of our JalJ In-
mates. Temperance people have at-
tended too much to the ealoon keeper
and too little to the saloon maker and
"To confine a human belnn In a steel
cage six by eight feet for thirty days
without exercise or occupation. Is a
dreadful crime against the human be-
ing. Tn my opinion, the best treatment
Is confinement In a reformatory for a
long term— say five years under Inde-
terminate sentence, with possible pa-
role at the end of nine months. There
should be regular studies carried on
and a trade suited to the capability
of the convict should be taught.
"The confirmed drunkard when so-
ber should be permitted voluntarily to
commit himself to such an institution
for a full term. He should be paid fair
wages for hUi labor, thus giving him
»ome money with which to support him-
self while seeking work after his dis-
charge. If unable to get work he
should be permitted to return to the
reformatory for a limited period."
