Nevrly a dozen cases of smallpox are
reported nt Richmond, all the patients
being negroes. Mnysville has daily train
connection with Richmond, and onr
health authorities should take some pre
cautions to prevent the disease from be
ing carried into our city.
SEVERAL MOKE VETOES.
Governor Bradley Still lluy Killing Bills
Passed by the Late Legislature.
Ono Approved Friday.
At last the guardians of the public
health seem to be working quietly in
Federal harness, and apparently the Mid
dlesborough epidemic is losing its initial
activity and force. But why was this
effect delayed? The disease began its
ravages in February, and was declared to
be epidemic on the fourth of March.
"All persons" were directed to be vaccin
nated; and, if the order was promptly,
thoroughly and systematically carried
out, the effect upon the epidemic ought
to have been felt at once. Must we iufer
that the terms of the order were not rig
orously enforced? that numbers of per
sons were overlooked ? that the virus
was impure or inert? or that it was care
lessly introduced? or that the subse
quent progress of the case was not care
fully watched? There is nothing trivial
in the business of vaccinnation. It is the
minutiae that tell, the vaccine vesicle has
a character of its own, it pursues a char
acteristic course, and it leaves a charac
teristic scar. It is no guarantee of suc
cessful vaccinnation simply to have a
nasty sore on the arm.
The epidemic at Middlesborough pre
sents an instructive object lesson for
every community in the State. It is
much easier to start a conflagration than
to stamp it out.
At Middlesliorough Against the Secretary
of the State Board of Health.
Mmi)i,EsnoROUGU, Ky., March IS. A
vigorous effort is being made to stamp
out smallpox under the direction of Fed
eral Surgeon Wertenbaker. Dr. McCor
mack, Secretary of the State Board, will
arrive to-night to see that the State
Board regulations are not ignored. Wer
tenbaker expresses a desire to work in
harmony with the State Board.
The feeling against McCoimack on ac
count of the attitude ho has maintained
is extremely bitter and several threats of
preventing him from appearing upon the
scene have been made. If McCorniack
shall attempt to thwart the projects of
Wertenbaker he will get a "warm recep
tion" from the people. Quarantine will
le more strictly kept than ever, though
Wertenbaker thinks it can be raised in
three weeks. Ample funds are now on
hand to complete the work, and the out
look is very encouraging. There were
two cases to-day.
Frankfort, Ky., March 18. The Gov
ernor did not have as much raw material
to work on to-day as he did yesterday, eo
the number of his vetoes decreased to-day
to four and his approvals to ono. The
Covington and Newport members of the
Legislature will bo greatly disappointed
over to-day's work, as he vetoed House
Bills 234 and 248. The first-named was
for the benefit of incorporated districts or
other municipalties not heretofore as
signed to any class of towns, and was, in
tended for the special benefit of Milldale,
in Kenton County.
The reason assigned for the veto wrb
that it was contrary to Section 59 of the
Constitution, which provides for local leg
islation, and that the statute already
provides a method for organizing such dis
tricts. No. 248 is an ant to provide for
the creation and government of suburban
districts near second class cities, and was
especially intended for Highlands, in
Campbell County. It was vetoed for ex
actly the same reason given for vetoing
House Bill 212, providing that no con
tract shall be made to pay a debt in gold
money, was vetoed because it is contrary
to the United States Constitution and
laws enacted as to currency in pursuance
He also vetoed House Bill 290, to
amend an act relating to fees, so that
Clerks, Commissioners, receivers, exan
iuers and Sheriff's of Louisville shall not
report to the State Auditor once a year,
instead of monthly, because it will oper
ate to increase the salaries of the officers
mentioned. Therefore it is in conflict
with Section 101 of the Constitution.
- The only bill he approved to-day was
the one known as the "Osteopath bill,"
which provides that all physicians or
healers who wish to practice their pro
fession in this State shall first be' exam
ined and granted a license by the State
Board of Health. The President of the
State Board of Health agreed, however,
to examine the osteopaths only in such
branches as taught in their colleges, and
this probably influenced the Governor to
sign the bill.

Smallpox at Richmond, Ky.
Richmond, Ky., March IS. Smallpox
his reached Richmond. Two well de
veloped cases were reported to the au
thorities early this morning, and rigid in
vestigation by the Board of Health result
ed in the discovery of two more cases,
four in all. The disease is confined to the
colored population, and is believed to
have been brought here two weeks ago
from Middlesborough. Dr. McCormack,
of the State Board of Health, wired that
Dr. Smock, of Louisvillewould at rive to
night and take charge. A pest house will
be selected to-day and all cases sent to it
at once and placed under competent
physicians. Scores of people besieged
doctors' offices, but could not bo vaccin
nated until the arrival of virus, which
will be here to-night.

Mr. A. O. Thomas, of Marysville, Tex.,
has found a more valuable discovery than
has yet been made in the Klondike. For
years ho suffered untold agony from con
sumption, accompanied by hemorrhages ;
and was absolutely cured by Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption, coughs
and colds. Ho declares that gold is of

velous cure; would have it, oven if it cost
a hundred dollars a bottle. Asthma,
bronchitis and all throat and lung affec
tions aro positively cured by Dr. King's
Now Discovery for consumption. Trial

Four more bills were vetoed Saturday
as follows: House Bill 301, which pro
vides for maintaining Circuit Courts and
their offices, and furnishing services and
assistance to courts, by cities of the sec
ond class wherein sit Circuit Courts of
continuous session. The Governor ve
toed it because he considered that the
bill confers upon the Circuit Judge
powers not warranted by law, because it
would give the Circuit Judge powers to
fix an indebtedness upon the city with
out consulting the city authorities ; be
cause the Circuit Judge is not a munic
ipal or city officer, and can not be made
a purchasing agent for the city.
House Bill 450, to repeal the act pro
viding for erection of a school building at
Hawesville, vetoed because the school
had been operating under the original
bill for years and would work a hardship.
House Bill 122 to amend the school law
so as to compel teachers to attend the
county institutes and to pay the ex
penses of same.
Senate Bill 20, to create a Board of Fire
men's Pension Fund for Louisville, ve
toed because it is unconstitutional.
He approved the bill providing that As
sessors of first and second class shall have
the power to assess all franchises for tax
ation for city purposes located in the
He also approved the bill known as the
Postal Telegraph bill, which gives the

right to parallel other telegraph lines
now built along railroad lines.

friends ou earth, I would meet my absent
ones above. My husband was advised to
