Instructed to entorce the regulation
at once, and its general terms caused
some confusion as to which places
were affected, some restaurant men
believing that they were neither
stores nor places where nonessential
activities went on.
Store Owners Agree.
Sunday morning a number of mer
chants met at the chamber of com
merce to discuss the matter and re
solved that "all stores agree to pay
for men to avoid dangerous conges
tion, and all agree to be regulated by
the rule of 25." A committee was ap

in great detail. The business men
were unanimous in the desire to do
everything necessary to check the In
fluenza epidemic Mr. Schwartz sug
gested that there were many details
not covered by the resolutions adopted
so far For Instance, he cited eleva
tors, whih, he thought, should not
be crowded. He also suggested that
police officers .prevent the gathering
of children about the stores.
Dr. White Haa Authority.
After considerable discussion, the
health board decided that Its original
resolution remain, but that the health
officer. Dr. H. S. "White, be empowered
to use his discretion in enforcing the
provision: that the large stores ap
point officers to prevent crowding;
That all stores close at 6 oclock Satur
days. Except that the city health officer
may prevent overcrowding therein,

To Apply Rule of Iteasoiu
The original order setting 25 per
sons as the limit for any one store
will not be enforced to the letter, as It
appeared reasonable that some of the
larger stores could with safety ac
commodate more persons than that
with perfect safety. The rule will re
main in technical force, however, so
that. If any storekeeper allows unrea
sonably large crowds to enter, there
will be a legal provision for the case.
As the matter stands, 50 persons might
be & crowd for some stores, while in
others 100 would not be. The discre
tion of the city health officer shall
