qflTcial opinions. Congress is a liberal body:
in each house wide latitude of speech is per

been desirable to invoke a parliamentary rule
to shut oft this sort of debate.

A pure milk crusade was talked
ever y the board of argiculture and
forestry at its monthly meeting yes-,
terday afternoon, following earnest
appeals for months past by Dr. Xor
gaard, the territorial veterinarian, who
pointed out that the results of the
practical elimination of bcTine tuber
culosis on this island, through his di
vision's work started on the strength
of the municipal milk ordinance that
prohibited the sale of milk from tu
berculous cows, were being rendered
largely nugatory by the filthiness of
It Is proposed early in the new year
to begin publishing the names of cf
fending dairies. In his report for the
month of November Dr. Norgaard, ou
this subject, says in part:
' On November 21st I had the hener
to address, by invitation, the Medical
Society of Hawaii on the subject ot
IJovine Tuberculosis and Its Rela
tion to Public Health.' with special
reference to that of children under
live years of age. As a. copy of my
paper on this subject wai submitted
to you before It was read before the
association, you will know .that ,it

ance of the medical profession of the
territory (not in Honolulu alone) in.

cially the one who provides milk foi j
infants and childen, to know and ap
preciate clean milk, and to demand I
that the milk producer,, that is, the
dairyman, furnish clean milk from!
healthy cows. Renovated or purified'
milk does not fill this bill.. though it,
is better than filthy milk, but soluble;
Impurities cannot be strained. out of;
milk by mechanical processes, nor can ,
milk containing the remains of one
miilicn micro-organisms in every sin
gle drop of its volume be considered
clean and wholesome, Just because the
bacteria have been killed, or their
vitiating activities retarded, by either
chemical or physical methods." '.. . .
He goes-on to say. that while! tm
mense progress has been made toward
the end of milk from healthy cows, as
regards ; the matter of cleanliness,
there Is'still very much to be accom
plished. " . i
. Dr. Norgaard devotes several typei
writlen , pages to ah appreciation of i
the recent Hawaii county fair.'..-.''
He reports the general tuberculin ;
test of dairy cows for the year as' fin

7000 animals tested and the propor
tion of reactors reduced ;more than

Mention is made of the arrival of
