- Alarmist or Patriot?
Justice Brewer of the United
States Supreme Court in speaking
of the insurance agents assembled
at Milwaukee said that graft was
the nation' poril. He pointed to
B the practiCU of the Equitable di
e rectors and asked how Mr. Ryan
r expected to make an honest profit
B of the $2,500,000 invested in the
stock of the Equitable.
Others have asked that ques
- tion, and in the asking they have
laid themselves liable to a conspi
cuous place in the column where
the "unpatroitic" are listed.
In the same address Justice
r Brewer said: "There is so much
grafting going on among public
u officials as to startle us. I am not
speaking now about the coarser
kind of grafting, such as buying
a voters, paying money, etc., which
we all condemn. I have reference
g to the more insidious ways that
N one holding public office who is
h not carrying on the duties of that
It office with an eye single to his
s trust, is prostituting in one way or
e in another that office for his own
n gain or the gain of his friends."
f That is the language of a Jui,
5 tices of the Supreme Court. When
e Democrats have used similar lan
'tguage they have been accused of
it being disturbers of the public
n peace, they have been charged
it with a disposition to interfere with
a the business interests ot the coon

Other Modes of Fever Infec
Everyone is disposcld to accept
the theory of infectiou of yellow
fever by the mosquito bite, but
there are multitudes who claim
that infaction can be used in other
ways. For example, Dr. Baxter,
of Chattanooga, who has bti~ se
iting New Orleaus, umade clde ex
amination of the mosquito qpes
tion upon his return home. He
reports that he has failed to tind
a stegomyia fasciata, or yellow fe
ver mosquito. Hd therefore gives
it as his opinion that there are
none of this brand in Chattanooga.
The Chattanooga News says:
"In 1878 Chattanooga experi
enced a very severe visit from yel
low fever, and it would seem that
if we had the stegomyia here then
it'should be here now. That, at
least, is a reasonable conclusion.
In other words, the indications are
that we had no yellow fever mos
quitoes here in 1878, and this fact
should tend to disprove the theory
that the fever can be communica
ted in no other way but this insect.
"Now is that all the evidence to
be had here to question the mos
quito theory. The News is infor
med by a number of gentlemen
who w#e here in 1878 that no fe
ver developed on the mountain
and ridges around Chattanooga.
If there is one fact established it
is that no fever developed on Look
out Mountain and Walden's Ridge
except a case or two that came
from Memphis, the patie% having
become infected beforet arriving
here. We have but one authentic
case of this kind for Lookout
"During that scourge thousands
of people fled to the mountains.
Hundred of them attended to their
business in this city throughout
the day, going to the mountains at
night. . Not one of them took the
fever. The attack was confined
exclusively to those people who
could not get out of the city. Now
it is contended that the yellow fo
ver mosquito is a day-light feeder;
that be bites exclusively in the day
time. If people who did not re
main in this city during the night
escaped the fever, and if it can bI,
communicated in no other way
than by the aforesaid mosquito,
what becomes of the whole theory
as applied to the Chattanoogo opi
demic of 1878?
"Our experience here woulI
seem to prove that one or the oth
er of the two theories is correct.
That is to say, the fever can ie
communicated otherwise than by
the mosquito, or that insect does
not do its biting in the day time.
People worked here all day for the
entire summer of 1878, went to the
mountain at night, and escaped
the fever. Those who remained
here at night contracted it.
"since a campaign of education
is being conducted all over the
South on the subject of yellow fe
ver, the facts and circumstances
which we have related are of in
terest. The News would like to
have an article from Dr. Baxter,
oc fromu any other physician al ho
was here in 1878 en, the subject."
