Patorson, X. J.. Dec- 4.. Dairy Commis
sioners Traoi and Van Druf f , with Health
Inspector Leal, are in this city today in
consultation. The commissioners tried to
impress np:m Inspector L eal thatthe present
typhoid epidemic wah due to the polluted
waters of the lassaic River and its tribu
ei pointed out the typhoid outbreak &t
Arlington, N. J., and Jersey City. Dr.
Leal, howeei, informed the commission
ers that milk from the Fulboain Creamery
had been supplied to Inith these pl.ues.
Telegrams irom New Vork are being re
ceived by every dairyman iu Sussex paying-
"Don't want Sussex county milk."
A'an Druff remarked that such a state c f
affairs would kill Sussex county.
"Belter kill Sussex county than kill our
wives and children," was Dr. Eeal's reply.
So positive were the commissioners that
the Paxcaic- JUvcr was the cause of the
typhoid outbreak that they secured a jar
or the water, and sent it to State Chemist
Wallace. No new caf-es have been reported
nj farin this city today, and Pnteroni.tns
are gradually getting back into a state of
