ISSUE WIT= HEALTH 0ICE03
Inclusion of the District Under Proad
aion of Pure lood Bill Bfore
Congre, . -
William Frear, chairman of. the execu
tive committee, and other representatives
of the National 'ure. Food Congress have
written to the District Commissioners, ask
Ing them not to oppose the pure food bill
now pending in Congress. The communica
tion was called forth by the letter of Dr.
W. C. Woodward, the health officer, in
which he urged the Commissioners to rec
ommend the exception of the District of
Columbia from the provisions of the law,
saying it would Interfere with the present
entirely satisfactory local laws.
Addressing the Commissioners, the rep
resentatives of the Pure Food. Congress
say:
"The National Pure -Food Congress, of
which your health ofieer was an Influential
member, formulated a bill which was In
troduced Into the House of Representatives
by the late Mr. Broslus, under number
12W73. At the following session of Con
gress (which is the present one) the same
bill was Introduced by Mr. Hepburn, under
No. 3109. The same bill was introduced
in the Senate at the beginning of the pres
ent sessloi by Mr. Hansbrough, under No.
3s4.
Was Carefully Considered.
"House bill No. 8109 was carefully con
sidered by the committee on Interstate and
foreign commerce, and after a hearing last
ing more than three week was reported
with few amendments, not affecting the
purpose or -scope of the - measure, and
placed on the House calendar. In like
manner, Senate bill No. 3342, after an elab
orate hearing, was reported to the Senate,
after unimportant amendments, and placed
on the calendar.
"All these bills contain a provision which
all your petitioners heartily indorse and
support, to the effect that Inasmuch as the
bill is intended to regulate interstate com
merce solely, its provisions should not ap
ply to the police laws of the states, terri
tories and the District of Columbia, relat
ing to adulterated foods and drugs.
."When House bill No. 3109 was on Its
passage a motion was made to strike out
this provision, In so far as it related to the
District of Columbia, and this motion pre
vailed. It Is claimed, therefore, In the
communication of the health officer, to
which reference has been made, that the
enactment into a law of the food bill, as it
passed the House, would repeal the exist
ing law and place the administration of
the food law of the District In the hands
of the Secretary of Agriculture.
Health Offcer's Bequest.
"To avoid this, the health officer requests
you to endeavor to reinstate in the bill the
exception relating to the District of Colum
bia, In which request the undersigned
heartily concur, and toward which they
promise to use their utmost endeavors.
Your health officer, however, goes further
than this and In essence requests you to
use your good offices to prevent all legisla
tion unless this particular proviso be se
cured. In this respect, we beg to submit
our opinion that such an extreme action on
your part is unadvisable. The pure food
bill now pending affects the welfare of
80,000,000 people, and secures honesty and
freedom from frauds in a commerce which
is worth, at a low estimate, two billion
dollars. It is a measure which has re
ceived the approval of three successive pure
food congresses; of practically All the mu
nicipal and state boards of health that have
considered it, of the great food and dairy
associations, of the national and' state
granges and nearly all other organized
bodies interested in pure foods that have
given it consideration. The measure, there
fore, is indorsed by all the people of the
United States who have given it consid
eration. Any opposition to the bill which
does not spring from a conviction that It
is too paternal or unconstitutional arises
from interests which offer to the public
food products which the law pronounces
deleterious or fraudulent.
"To oppose such a law because it might
alter the method of the execution of a
pure food law in the District of Columbia,
affecting not to exceed 300,000 of our citi
zens, seems to us a character of opposi
tion which your honorable body, after due
deliberation, would be unwilling to adopt.
Disasters Not Anticipated.
"We do not anticipate that any of the
disasters which your health officer foresees
would really occur, even in case the bill
should become a law as it has passed the
House. The Secretary of Agriculture is
not likely to alter In any essential way the
methods in vogue at the present time, and,
it is more than probable, would prefer to
utilize the machinery now operative.
"Without doubt, the definitions and stand
ards found in the proposed bill are better
than those In the existing law, since they
have been formulated from a wider and
more varied experience and by a larger
number of experts. The substitution of
these definitions and standards would there
fore be a distinct advantage, and If this
should be coupled with a restoration of the
provision struck out by the House the con
ditions of the administration of the law
would. be better than at the present.
"We earnestly request your honorable
body not to oppose the passage of the bill
now ,pending In the Senate, which safe
guards the rights and privileges of the
health 'office of the District, but, on the con
trary, to use your best offices to secure its
passage, and thus confer a blessing of a
far-reaching character on the people of the
whole country."~
SIX XONTES IN JAIL.
William Booker's Testimony Convicts
His Wife of Assault,
Fannie Booker, colored, was In the dock
in the United States branch of the Police
Court today with her two smail children
one a babe of eight months, which she car
ried in her arms, the other three years of
age.
Her husband, William with hi. heed
swathed in bandages, appeared against her,
and his testignony made it apparent that
his appetite for liquor and jealousy on the
pert of both were the cause of his wife's ar
rest, According to his story he remained
out all of Saturday night, and when he
reached his hoble on Ontario avenue, in the
county, at an early hour yesterday morning
his wife attacked him with a brick, which
she used on his head, and inflicted a wound
on his left hand with a butcher knife,
Fannie's version of the difficulty was to
the effect that she went out In front of her
home to persuade her' husband to go into
the house, and that he knocked her down
and choked her, and then she struck him
with the brick to make him release his hold
on ber neck. The woman said her husband
later attacked hes with a stone, and that
she struck at him with a butcher knife,
cutting him on the hand.' Judge Kimball
decided that a charge of assault had been
substantiated against the woman, and sen
tenced her to a tirm of six months In jail..
Judge Kimball communicated with the
board of children's guardians, and an ar
rangement will be made to have the chil
dren's grandmother -care for theap until
their mother Is released from jail.
