FEDERAL QUARANTINE NEEDED.
Louisiana has taken the right and
inevitable course in calling on the
President to assume the burden of
quarantine. Both the Governor and
the New Orleans Exchange ask for
this step. It is justified by public
opinion and by public conditions.
The more rapid, the more complete
and the more sweeping the change
from patchwork state quarantines
wrangling on the gulf, to federal au
thority the better.
State quarantine has lasted its day.
It is an expensive and useless nuisance.
It is no more needed than state harbor
lights, a state immigrant service or
any other regulation of foreign or in
terstate commerce. The law is clear
and unmistakable. Said the Supreme
court nineteen years ago, 1886, in a
case which came up from New Orleans
(Morgan Steamship Company vs.
Louisiana board of health):
' It may be conceeded that whenever
congress shall undertake to provide
for the commercial cities of the United
States a general system of quarantine,
or shall confide the execution of the
details of such a system to a national
board of health or to local boards, or
may be found expedient, all state laws
on the subject will be abrogated or at
least as far as the two are inconsis
Congress has taken this step. It has
by a recent law, given the President
full authority to decide when the Ma
rine Hospital Service shall assume
full jurisdiction. By the third section
1 of the act of 18.93, when the Secretary
of the Treasury-and he is the sole
judge--deems local or state quarar.
tine insulticient, he can "make such
additional rules and regulations as
are necessary." Once made, he is to
e judge whether these rules are being
executed by state or local authorities.
If not, federal quarantine steps in,
The action taken in Louisiana and
the complete disregard of federal rules
it and regulations by shotgun quaran
tines show that the time has come.
ý The responsibility should be taken.
Once taken it cannot be laid down.
Nt Neither can the limits of federal ac
tion be confined to New Orleans.
The day for shotgun quarantine is -
ie passed in this country. Profound "

ant men under the obsession of panic, /

A pestilence, like yellow fever, does 9
its worst harm not through the deaths
lor through "cases" which in most
cases add little to the average mortal- t
ity of the year, but through the inter
ruption to trade and travel. This in
terruption is due to no needed quar
antine, but to the headlong, wholesale
r and ignorant local quarantine estab
Slished. These are always stupid.
