The State Board of Health.
It U expected that tne legislature will
reconsider its action of last week lo
striking out the appropriation for tbe
state board of health. While there is
considerable opposition to this branch of
the state government, still it has ac
complished a vast amount of good from
a sanitary standpoint, and tbe advisabil
ity of discontinuing it altogether is a
matter which should be carefully weighed.
In regard to tho action of the legislature
on this subject, the Chicago Xewt has the
At every recurring session of the gen
eral assembly a vicious attack is made
upon the state board of health in the
lower house. Such attacks usually take
the form of an attempt to reduce or to
entirely cut off the appropriation for its
support. This year it has gone further.
and bills have been introduced for a re
peal of the act creating tbe board, but
these have been already reported unfavor
ably by the committees to which they
Tbe animus of the attacks is not far to
seek. First, the quacks, abortionists,
and other disreputables who are pre
vented from plying their nefarious voca
tions by the board. These are abetted by
a certain ignoble class of newspapers who
miss the advertising patronage which
would otherwise accrue. Second, tbe
cheap medical colleges run as mere
"diploma mills." These institutions are
not recognized by the board, and tbe en
forcement of a decent standard of medical
education and qualifications has closed
the doors of a great many of them and
prohibited their "graduates" from prac
tice in this state. How this work of tbe
board is regarded by such eminent physi
cians acd public-spirited citizens as Drs.
Byford. Andrews. Johnson, Davis, Fen
ger, Ingals, DeWolf, Ludlara, Clark and
Others allopaths, homeopaths, and
eclectics may be seen by the following
extract from the last number of the Chi
cago Medical Journal, a publication with
which nearly all those above named are
"Chiefly by its work in raising the
standard of medical.education. in expos
ing 'diploma mills,' and in tracing up and
prosecuting quackery the Illinois state
board of hcalih has made itself a power
that is felt over the Lnited States and
Still more emphatic is the Verdict of ex
Got. Oglesby in his Inst message, deliv
ered Jan. 10, 1889. A chief executive
noted for his honesty and hard headed
common sense, he accredits tbe board
with an "intelligent and faithful dis
charge of its duties" by which while
neighboring communities, even less ex
posed by immigration and geographical
position, have suffered from frequent epi
demics Illinois has for many years been
free from serious or widespread contagi
ous or infectious disease, "until the state
is now ono of tbe healthiest and most fa
vorable to long and vigorous life of any
in the onion.
Referring to the unparalleled labors of
the board in the small pox epidemic of
1881-2, the result of which labors and
tbe methods by which it was accomplished
have passed into history on both sides tbe
Atlantic as among the greatest triumphs
of sanitary administration Gov. Oglesby
says that "it is a matter of record" that
tbe work of tbe hoard "resulted in a sav
ing or nearly $3,500,000 to the people cf
the state," and that "through the pre
ventive and protective measures then es
tablished and since enforced, there has
been no repetition of that disease in an
epidemic form." He calls attention also
to the fact that during the first six months
of the amended act the board refused
licenses to itinerant venders of nostrums
and quack practitioners, the fees for
which licenses would have swelled the
treasury of the board by over $20,000.
Finally, be cites, as proof "that the
board has been prudent and economical
in the expenditure of appropriations sub
ject to its order," the fact that it covered
back into the treasury untouched a
contingent appropriation of 140,000.
Contrast these deliberate, official state
ments of the chief executive with tbe
brutal assaults and wholesale lies ut
tered on the floor of the bouse last
Wednesday by the champions of the
quacks and quackery.
One of these asserted that the expenses
of the board for tbe last two years ag
gregated $60,000, or $30,000 a year.
Tbe actual appropriations for the board
for these years was 9,000 per annum.
and of this amount the state auditor's
report and the sworn statement of tbe
treasurer of the board show a balance on
hand unexpended at the close of tbe last
With tbe exception of the secretary no
member of the board receives one dollar
of pay or emolument only tbe actual
expenses of their attendance at meetings
being refunded them and there is not
one of tbem who does not make a con
iderable personal and pecuniary sacri
fice in discharging the duties of member
ship. They would do better individually
without the state than would tbe state
without them. If tbe assembled wisdom
of Illinois as represented in tbe
XXXVIth legislature decides to abolish
the state board of health, let it do so di
recti t by repeal of the act and not by in
direction through cutlintr off appropria
tions for this work. No member of tbe
board will protest agaiust such repeal,
nor make other claim for its continued
existence than an established record
which is a credit to the state.

rush toward the promised land of Oklahoma,
strange as it may appear, there are roauy
women who hope to locate ou desirable situs
to obtain homes.
Among the covered wagons that passed
here yesterday was one in which there were
three women and several children. Their
appearance bore evidence of a long, bitter
struggle with tbe wild west Tbe oldest and
apparently the moving spirit of the party
said her name was Mrs. Dennison, that she
came to western Kama years ago from
8y mouse, N. Y. Poor crops and sickness
soon dwindled down her little means, and,
at last, ber husband dying, she, her daughter
and sister-in-law left then- Kansas claim and
started for Oklahoma. They bad already
driven 200 miles and felt themselves equal to
tbe remaining journey, which would end
when the claim they had been told about in
Cimarron valley had been reached. Here
they intended to erect houses, make their
living by selling chickens, either selling or
disposing of their claim. .
A Daisy and Her "Gun."
Another interesting woman, Nanetta
Daisy, arrived here Sunday night Her
home is in Louisville, Ky., where she was
employed upon the daily papers as a special
correspondent She was au applicant for
state librarian in Kentucky, but was beaten
by ouly otie vote. Chagrined at this defeat
she tried Washington, and became well
known there for her wit and eccentricity.
Securing tbe recommendation of the Ken
tucky delegation and several senators she
was given charge of the government school

Aunty Cliloe Had to Go.
Lieut Carson in one of his raids found an
old colored women called Aunty Clhoe liviug
in a hut near Pure 11. She had lived there
for years, and was perhaps tbe oldest woman
boomer. The soldiers burned her cabin, and
killing her dog and chickens took her a
prisoner to Oklahoma station. Although
treated kindly by Lieut. Carson she was
badly frightened, blie was loft a tent and
some provisions by the soldiers, and a few
days af fer their departure was found almost
dead from starvation. She was cared for by
boomers, and is now anxiously awaiting tbe
iM to move hack upon ber claim.
Defied tbe Whole Army.
Another old lady, who was not so easily
frightened, was found in Canadian valley.
She came to the door of her dug-out, ladle in
band, and defied not only the small band of
scouts that found her, but the whole United
States army. Hue was permitted to remain
until a few days ago, when she listened to the
advice of Capt. Couch and left to return
when she could legally do so.
Going in a Speculation.
At Pureed has been formed a party of nine
or ten girls who expect to participate in the
general rush. Many of them came to this
place to await the opening, and are now
working in dining-rooms or in other menial
positions. They are familiar with the coun
try. Their idea is to endeavor to each secure
a claim. If they fail in this they will secure
as many aa possible, either form a town site,
or sell a relinquishment and divide the pro

Will Be Behind Time.
Topeka, April 10. According to the time
cards prepared by the railroads there will be
very little business doue at the land offices in
Oklahoma on April 22. The first regular
south-bound train on the Santa Fe railroad
will not reach Guthrie before 4:30 p. m., too
late for land office business, while the tram
from the south, leaving Purcell about noon,
will not arrive at Guthrie until about 4
o'clock, half an hour before the office closes.
The stages run in connection with tbe Rock
Island road expect to reach Kingfisher at 3
o'clock nuleas the streams are swollen or the
roads unusually bad. Under the most favor
able circumstances the prospects are that
very few claims can be filed before the day
following the opening of the territory,

will become the Kansas City of the south

gram from Arkansas City stating that a sav
age fight between original boomers and new

Minneapolis, Mian., April 16. The
crack of a pistol was heard by the occupants
of the wventh floor of tbe Boston block

room 735, of Charles F. Hatch, ' president Of '
tbe Wisconsin, Minnesota and Pacifio rail
way, wb ch is the Watertown branch of the
St Loub n ad. Men from other offices ran
into the room to see what was the matter.
A smoking revolver and the blood pouring
from M Hatch's mouth told the story
only tot well He . was dead when
they rea bed him. Mr. Hatch had been in
and out f his office all the morning, and was
apparent y in his usual spirits, as he opened
bis mail and attended to tbe customary du
ties of his office. He reached the Boston
block at t:20, and, being the only passenger
in the ele rator as far as the seventh story,
engaged la conversation with C. E. Gordon,
the opera r of the car.
"This is a nice day, sir," remarked the lat
ter to his solitary passenger.
Yes," was the reply, "it is a nice day to
live, but n poor one to die."
This i pparently philosophical remark
passed un needed at the time, but was fraught
with sigr ificance when taken in connection
with the vents of the next hour.

authorizing a loan of $700,000 was unconsti

Chicago, April 16. Referring to the re
port that t ie employes of the Baltimore and
Ohio rail v -ay were on the verge of a strike
against thf company's insurance scheme, and
that tbe men were required to take out
policies or quit, F. H. Britton, general
supermten lent of tbe road, said yesterday
that it was a story with little foundation;
the men were not required to go
in, but were invited, and even
urged t do so, but refusal
in nowise riade tbem insecure in their places;
99 per cent of the men were' in favor of the
scheme, aiid the "kickers" were a few men
who, never having been sick or hurt, did not
like to pay the dues. The company contrib
uted (25,00) yearly to tbe fund, and tbe rates
of insurant were cheaper than in any regu

complicated condition of the estate of the
late George Bullock, president of tbe com

The Aents Still Hope for tiood News.
and Are Anxiously Awaiting the Arrival
of the "Denmark, Now Overdue A
Virginia Valley Swept by Forest Fires
Heavy Loss of Property, One Han
Burned and Four Missing.
New York, April 16. As time passes and
no news of the Denmark's passengers is re
ceived, the fear tbat all on board were lost
glows stronger. Several steamers arrived
yesterday but brought no tidings for those
anxiously waiting with mingled hope and
dread to learn the fate of their loved ones.
Marine mn are now looking for the arrival
of the National steamer Denmark, which
they think ought to bring news of the Dan-
mark. Tbe National steamship is now two
days and several hours overdue. There is a
possibility that the delay of the Denmark is
due to her being in collision with the Dan-
mark. It would be a strange fate that would
bring those two vessels together a thousand
miles out oft the ocean. There is no means of
accounting for the way the Danmark lay in
the sea, when sighted by tbe City of Chester,
except by a collision. Her stern was so deep
in the water that the waves were constantly
washing over the after-deck, and ber bow
was so high that her keel could be seen.
Tbe National line steamer Denmark left
London March 80. The Thing-valla steamer
Danmark left her port of Cbristiansand
March 26. The vessels could not therefore
be far apart when tbe latter was seen water
logged by the City of Chester. The Ham
monia, of tbe Hamburg-American line, came
over tbe track of the Thingvalla. In fact all
the steamers that come through the English
channel take nearly the same course. Tdb
Cbeniston came from Mediterranean porta,
and would be on the equatorial side of tbe
northern European steamship track; the
British vessels from Liverpool and Queens
town and Glasgow and Londonderry would
have a course to the Arctic side of it This
ought to increase the chances of rescue. It is
held that unless a comparatively large vessel,
either a steamer or a ship, took up tbe ship
wrecked people, it would be most likely that
the nearest point, tbe Azores, would be made

Baltimore, April 10. The Snn's special
from Danville, Ya., says: A dispatc from
Critz's station, on the Danville and New

graphic account of a devastating forest fire,

heavy rain aided tbe men in finally stopping
it on Sunday night A slight rain on Fri
day impeded the flames temporarily, but
the broke out afresh on Saturday and raged
with increased vigor. The flames, impelled
by tbe gale, swept through the fer
tile valley called Wild Cat Hollow
like a tornado, preceded by sounds like
rolling thunder, and dashed up the mountain
sides. Horses, cattle, and hogs lecame par
alyzed with foar and were easy prey of the
flames. Housrs, fences, barns, stables, and
granaries were swept away like tindor boxes.

large portion ot the burnt district is moun
tainous couutry, sparsely settled by poor peo
ple, who are left in a destitute condition.

head of cattle, a dozen horses, and over -10
hogs were burned. It is estimated that about
100 dwelling), were destroyed. Every vestige
of fencing is gone. It is known that one man
was burned to death and four others are miss

THE RAILWAY MAIL SERVICE.
Giving tha Old C lerk. a Chanre Work
lor the Civil Serrlce Board.
Washington Citt, AnrU 16 By an order
of President Cleveland the employes of the
railway mail service were placed under the
civil service law, to take effect March li
President Harris ,n, at the request of the civ
il service commission, modified tbe original
order, extending the time to May 1. That
date, it is now understood, wii remain as
fixed, after which no one who desires a posi
tion in the railway service can be appointed
without first having passed the examination
prescribed by tbe commission. President
Harrison has, however, said that in justice to
good men who in the past four or five years
have been removed without cause, he will so
amend the order of President Cleveland as to
allow old employes within that period to be
reinstated. This modifk-atian of the order
will, it is understood, be promulgated in a
few daya Men now in the service will not
have to pass an examination.
A to l'otltie Inspector.

day issued an order that all applications on

ment as postoffiee inspector, be sent to the
civil service commission. In compliance
with this order, a large numlier of clerks
were engaged in arranging the jiapers of ap
plicant for transfer to the commission.
There are about 500 applications on file i n
the postoffli'e department for these positions,
and about 400 on file in the civil service com
mission. Tbe order placing postolBce in
spectors under the operations of tbe
civil service law was issued by Presi
dent Cleveland and goae into opera
tion on May 1 next. Like the law in regard
to clerks, inspectors now in the ser vice will
not be required to undergo examination, but
all new appointees w ill have to undergo ex
amination before appointment.
Both tbe president and Postmaster Gen
eral Wanamaker hsve expressed their deter
mination to live up to the law. It is in the
province of the president to modify the order
of President Cleveland so as to permit ap
pointments as postotfice inspectors without
examination of tuoe who have within tbe
past few years been in the bervice, and it is
intimated that possibly be maydoao. If
done, it will be done in justice to those who
were dismissed for political reason. -
