New York, July 23. To combat the
scourge of pneumonia In New York City

a thorough" and far-reaching crusade. Its
rpquest for a special appropriation of

diseases. It is believed by many phvsl
elans that pneumonia is a communicable
disease, and If this view should be adopt
ed by tho commission the Heilth Board
will arrange to isolate cases as they oc
cur this fall.
As Investigation, persistent care and
tnorough treatment have reduced the
number of cases and the de.ith rate In
tuberculous, it is intended to bring down
the appalling death rate of pneumonia,
which has been going up for several
vcars In about the same ratio tint the
tuberculosis death rate has been declining.
The excess In number of deaths from
pneumonia, bronchial pneumonia and
acute bronchitis for the first sK months
of 1901 over the corresponding part of
1903, was more than twice the number of
lives lost in the General Slocum disaster.
The deaths from pneumonia from Jan
uary 1 to Julv 1. 1904 numbered 5 438,
which was 1.683 more than occurred dur
ing the same period of 1903. The deaths
from bronchial pneumonia during those
months numbered 2,762 for 1901, an excess
of 859 over 1103, and the deaths from acute
bronchitis were 1,137, which was 228 more
than for the same months nf 1903.
Tho total excess in the number of deaths
from the three diseases for the six months
of this jear over last was 2.72J.
These ligures are for the entire city,
Manhattan suffered the most severely, the
deaths in one week from pneumonia num
bering 311 in this borough.
PURE AIR ITS GREATEST ENEMY.
While it has been Impossible to account
satisfactorily for the prevalence of the
disease and its violent character this jear.
the Board of Health attributes it in part
to the seventy of the weather, which
caused many persons, especially among
the noor, to live In houses as nearly air
tight as possible. As In the care of
tuberculosis the greatest enemy of pneu
monia is fresh air. In co'd weather many
persons tako as little of this as nossible.
Tor a similar reason the late spring pro
longed the period of suffering from the
dlseae and kept up the death rate. As
soon as the weather encouraged the
throning open of windows the severity
of the scourage diminished.
This, however. Is after all onlv an Im
perfect nr,d unsatisfactory explanation of
the cause of the disease, for It has been
pretty steadily on the Increase since 1870
During the ten vears from 1870 to 1SS0,
there were 2.20 deaths per thousand: In
the net ten jers the death r-te rose
to 2.57: for the next decade to 2.98. and it
Is still mounting.
Appropriations were granted also bv the
Board of Estimate and Apportionment to
the Department of Health. J30.0CO for the
disinfection fund, which includes money
for horses, wagons, etc.: J1O000 for
the tuberculosis clinic. $10,000 for tracoma.

WHISTLER'S PEACOCK PANELS
BOUGHT BY AN AMERICAN
Gold Leaf Wall Decorations Wh ich Kecord the Eccentric Artist's
Erratic Genius Are to Beaut ify a Detroit Houit. Story of the
Celebrated Peacock Room in London.
London, July 23 Tho genius of James
McNeil Whistler has never found more
characteristic expression than In his fa
us neacock room.
It was the artist's boast that he could
vcrk with equal facility In oil mediums.
His work in this remarkable interior
was somethlns of an experiment, jet it is
none the less convincing.
It was tho work of a momentary im
pulse, carried out at top speed, under the
highest pressure of his enthusiasm. For
all admirers of Whistler tho room has,
therefore, a peculiar charm.
It seems tittlng that a work so charac
teristic of Whistler's art should find a
permanent home In his native iountrj.
Its destination was announced recently
In d. brief cable dispatcn whoe Impor
tance has been too little lecognized.
'inu decorations aie about tout- bhippeu
from tneir present setting m London, und
tor a time will be cxh-ulitd :n a Bond
street ait stcro, after whlcli they will be
brought to AiiHi.-.i.
No proper upprtclatlon of the room Is
possible without some acqualntaneo with
its. peculiar History. It has been bald that
the loom vvaa n expiesjion ot mstler's
eccentric genius, but It was rare- lor
even VV'hlsuer to carry his vagaries o fur.
'1 he peacock room w as not originally de
signed by Whistler, but by a rfood En
llsii architect, and, alter a stjie not un
common li London houses. Tho house
was tho property of .Mr. 1". R. I-ylond,
and stands at 1'ilncess Gate, London.
Iho dining-room originally was In the
early Norman stjle, with drop ceillngj
and much woodwork. On the whole. It
was rather a. gloomy Interior.
'the dominant color tone was supplied
by the walls, which were covered with old
Spanish leather, a. very costly but some
what sioomy decoration.
WHISTLER CALLED IN.
With the intention of lightening the
room Mr. Le land, w ho was a friend and
admirer of -hlstler. called upon the fa
mous artist to paint a panel to occupy one
side of tho room.
The price arranged for this single panel,
lnciaenumy, was $i),uuo. The painting,
which Whistler completed In due time,
was entitled "La Princesso du Pajs do
Porcelain." It was In his best manner
and has been greatly admired
The central ligurc ot the painting Is that
ot a girl dressed In light pink rones, the
general eftect suggesting atronglj a Jap
anese painting.
The painting was duly installed over the
fireplace at the end of tho dining-room.
It soon became evident to the owner of
the house that the painting, with its deli
cate Japanese coloi effect and treatment,
did not harmonize with the darker decora
tion of the room, and Whistler was called
in to advise.
The peacock room was the result, al
though no one at tho time, least of all
Whistler himself, had any Idea of what
was to come.
Whistler suggested that he might
lighten the room in the vicinity of his
painting with a Utle sold leaf, and re
ceived the owner's permission to go
ahead.
He began to lighten It with gold and
Antwerp blue. W hlstler, according to his
cwn confession, later, had no Idea of
making any great alteration In the room,
but the spirit of the work took hold of
him, and he attacked the project with
enthusiasm.
Tho wall which furnished the setting for
his original painting grew mucli lighter
bv the addition of blue and gold.
Whistler's method meanwhile of trans
forming tho room was very plain. He
simply gilded and painted the valuable
carved leather, which had been imnortod
.t enormous expense from Spain.
in his enthusiasm he did not take the
time to remove the leather, whereas tho
bare walls might have served his pur
pose better. This oversight was eminently
characteristic of the artist. Finally
Whistler, foreseeing nbiectlnn, told Air.
Lev land that he must work alone, and un
disturbed. If at all, and requested the pro
prietor of the houso to leave London for
a month. Mr. Leylard objected, and
Whistler thereupon refused" point blank
to 50 on with tho work. He was finally
left alone In the dining-room.
WHISTLER'S MASTERPIECE
Immediately Whistler and a pupil sup
plied themselves with an unlimited quan
tity of Antwerp blue and gold leaf and
attacked the room as a whole. The vast
c j pause of Sranlsh leather quickly dis
appeared under the new covering.
Tno celling was next treated and after
wards the woodwork, until every part of
the room resplendent with the blue and
gold. Great fans of brilliant peacock
feathers spread themselves over the great
ceilings. In place of the somber ancient
leather, which had cost thousands of dol-,
lars, the walls shimmered with the deli
cate shades of blue and gold.
There wero gold peacocks on bluo
ground and blue peacocks on gold ground,
with great expanses of peacock eyes and

feathers in gold and blue crowded Into the
remotest corners of the wonderful room.
Jet all in the moot perfect harmony.
Whistler's masterpiece was rapidly taking
f 01 m.
It was hi tho midst of tho work and
while tho room was in a state of wild dis
order that the owner of tho house sud
denly appeared and demanded admittance.
Whistler imperiously refused him. A few
dajs later, however, Mr. Lcjland stole in
to the 100m unexpectedly while Whistler
and his pupil were at work
Lev land was furious Tho rare woods
ho h id gathered nt such cost were hidden
beneath paint and gold leaf. The leather
was apparently defaced
Tho worii had gone on quite without his
permission, and alrcaJy many thousands
of dollars' worth of material had been
rumen.
He asked Whistler angrily what he had
done with his leather.
Whistler, without turning from the wall
hH was busy with, replied:
"Your leather Is beneath my peacocks,
and an excellent ground, too. It formed to
paint on."
Mr. Lev land was furious, and asked
Whistler how much he was Indebted to
the artist for having wrecked his dining
room. ' One thousand guineas," Whistler re
plied Instantly.
"But you have ruined more than that
much In leather already," said Doctor
Lejland. "I will give jou onlv 1000."
COMPLETING THE ROOM.
Whistler readily agreed to this on con
dition that ho be allowed to finish the
room uninterrupted.
The application of gold and bluo was
continued But tho Incie'ent was responsi
ble for perhavs the most striking decora
tion of tho remarkable room. Whistler im
mortalizrd tho quarrel with Mr. Leland
on the remaining panel. In the same stvle.
suggestive so strongly of tho Japanese
art at its best. Whistler proceeded to
paint a fantastic croun of two irreat nea-
cocks.
Ono of the birds caricatured Lejland,
It was smothered in golden eagles, while
all about It on the floor wero silver shil
lings commemorating tho difference be
tween tho sovereign and the guinea which
Leyland refused to pay him. The second
peacock represented Whistler himself, and
struts about prancing and triumphant.
The quarrel over the extra shilling is thus
recorded fcr all time.
How many times the leather which was
supposed to have been ruined, has been
enhanced in value by Whistler's touch It
is impossible to say, but the trouble over
the room was not yet at an end.
At the private view of the room given
"some time later Whistler collected a num
ber of his friends, while Mr. Lev land was
conspicuous by his absercc.
At this meeting the original architect of
the room, a Mr. Jackjll. Is said to have
been so astonished at the havoc that he
quarreled with Whistler and never again
met him It was only after somo time
that the room so oddly conceived and car
ried out came to bo recognized as a mas
terpiece. In the two large panels which Whistler
has given tho room the great nrtlst has
been very happy in his treatment, so that
each alone has permanent value.
it 13 in the nure v decorative worK. how
ever, that the peacock room Is especl.allj
notable. The distribution of color and dec
oration seems without especial precon
ceived design, jet tho general effect is
wonderfully harmonious.
The peacock motive, as it maj be called.
Is carried out to the last detail. In some
respects Whistler's greatest conquest In
this work is his decoration of the inside
window shutters.
THE PEACOCK SHELTER.
The shutters w hen closed formed a com
parativelj' smooth face, and on this
Whistler has painted a marvellous con
ventionalized peacock, with tail feathers
extended In successive fans until every
part of the shutter Is covered.
Thej might have been painted by a
Japanese artist of the best period of
Japanese art. So carefullv- has this been
done that the detail of the shutter Is com
pletely lost In the design.
The hinges, for example are skllfully
worked Into the shadings of the feathers,
so that they can only be discovered on
the closest Inspection Eich of tho panels
formed by closing the shutters contains
a different design, although all are simi
lar The pluinago of a single peacock
suffices In each case to fill the panel.
The room-was originally Intended to re
produce the old Norman interiors, and
the walls accordingly are lines with a
series of bracketlike decorations with
many slender uprights of dark wood.
The room. It must be remembered, was
not Whistler's Idea, and doubtless had ho
been able to fix the lines of the room he
was 'to decorate he would have been even
more successful. He simply took what
came to hand.
The wooden uprights presented unusual
difficulties. Whistler overcame these by
covering them with brilliant peacock
feathers shaded from, dark to light down
ward. An unexpected effect was thus obtained.
Not only do the walls and celling, once
covered with somber leather, shine re
