ling: a smallpox case In Silvis has
been made by Dr. A. C. Hansen. The
doctor yesterday conferred with Dr.
P. H. Wessel, member of the board,
and also wrote to Secretary Eagan
at Springfield. Conductor Foster
arrived In Silvis on one of the Rock
Island freight trains Thursday after
noon. Dr. Hansen, the Rock Is
land railway's surgeon for the Sil

caboose detached from the train and
fumigated. Mr. Foster wa taken to
his home, and Dr. W. D. Chapman,
health officer, was notified. Dr.
Chapman according to Dr. Hansen's
statement, refuses to establish a
quarantine. State regulations re
quire that a guard be set. Dr. Han
sen, in appealing to the state board,
asserts that this guard has not been
set. He also alleges that trainmen,
who were with Foster on his last
run, have not been quarantined but
are on the streets. Dr. Hansen Wed

Chapman. Dr. Hansen is not In a
