Mrs. Wilson and her husband declined to make a se lection of a place of quarantine. I also suggested Unit the two or three children of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson should be removed from the Occi dental building to some comfortable place, as In the event that such chil dren or any of them should become afflicted with the disease, it would become necessary to again fumigate the building, and I suggested one of .he cottages owned or controlled by either Mrs. Wilson, her luifband or Or. K. X. Wilson as a unliable p i acts and 1 believe that thereafter the children were placed in a. cottage. Mrs. Wilson nor her hufband did not object to the pest house us an unfit place, especially for a lady. They asked me, however, as to the condition of the pest house and I told them that it was comfortable and free from dampness. 1 also in formed them that It was an adobe building. I did not fttaJe to Mrs. Wilson or to her husband that the building had a floor and had been re cently fixed over and a room espec ially set apart for women. There was hots ever, in the building a room es pecially set jHlde for female patients, i Nothing was suld upon the subject as ', to the furnishings of the building; or ' lt appointments and no questions I were asked regarding the same. Mrs. ' Wilson requested before her removal ' to the pest house that she be allowed ' to take her own bedding and mat- j tress, I informed her that there was : bedding for her use in the pest house, but she preferred to provide her own bedding therein and her ' request was acceded to. Mrs. W'lison also stated that as her mother was ! mniune from the disease she wished her to accompany her to the pest house and care for her. This request was hImo acceded to. A female nurse, however, was provided as soon si one could be secured who was Immune to the disease. I also Informed .Mrs. Wilson und her husband that all supplies such as water, provisions, fuel and so forth were carried to the pest house from the city, and when a complaint was made as to the tante of the water I carried wa ter In jugs from the city 10 the pest lioune tor the use of Mrs. Wilson und this service was performed daily. It is usual for the patients to mak a list or have one made for them in which they state their wants and Mrs. Wilson did this. an. I in each Instance her desires were fulfilled. The charge made by the city for maintenance in the pent house is $3 per day. This to be paid by the pa-tic-nt. 1 have nothing whatever to do wllh this charge. It was made and required long prior to my accession to ofrtce. I receive no benefit from It. The money does not go to me. It belongs exclusively to the city. X make a charge of $2 per day for vis iting p.iiients in the pest house. This charge of is the same whether I make one or more visits and I usual ly make two visits each day. During XI r Wilson's illne.-s at the pest house I saw her at least once und usually twice a day. She made no complaint to me on the subject of her treatment, but always expressed satisfaction and said thai she was getting along nicely. Some of the leading physicians of our city have been attending their patients in the pest house. These physicians are per sons who will never be charged with the neglect of their patients or of permitting them to remain In a place where facilities for comfort and cure are not maintained. .Mrs Wilson speak of the roof In the pest house leaking. Trior to her removal there a heavy rain occurred, during which a number of patients were in the building, and know that the roof did not leak. 1 saw no evidence of it, and the patient then there said that the roof of the building did not leak, siince my recommendation for a hospital for coutaglou-i diseases. 1 have prepared pian and specifica being in urn n 1 n ft o Q.fl..r3 tions for such hospital and have them ready for submission t the city ci.uncil. 1 have also been Inspecting, under pnrmlssiou of the city council, suitable sites for the location Of such hospital. This urgent matter would have been brought before the recent meet ing of the board of heiilth but the lime of that body was fully employ ee! during the session and which pre cluded a hearing of this matter of pressing Importance. 1 know that In cases of contagious diseases many complaints are made, Kith by the. patients and by citizens, hut the actual experience of an offi cer charged with duties of a char acter so critical during such seige is a very different matter. Jt is very easy to criticise and to say that this should have been done or that should have been avoided, but when con fronted .with responsibilities serious as have been those which have threatened the health of our citizens during the past three months, I know that 1 have done my full duty. Vigor our efforts have prevented the gener a ' spread of a malady which had it taken deeper root would have atlllct ed a very largo number nf people and would also have Intercepted the free course of business within our city. I). H. CAK.t.S. M. D. City Physician. 1 he following affidavits were se cured by Dr. t'arns and submitted as a part of his statement: Albuquerque, Jan. 3D, To the City of Albuquerque, of Health: I wish to state In aitmifr lioard to the charge brought against the treatment oi tne patients at the pest house aa i seen in tile Morning Journal, writ ten by Mrs. Wilson: Sh" said she had to do her own cooking, dishwashing and the care for her own room. When 1 came here Friday, Jan. 18, I told the ladies who were heie three that I would d the cooking, dishwashing and she stopped me and said: "We can tend to eiir own work. No one can cook to suit me." AptJ as to lack of attention from the doc. lors they have been us attentive as :hey could possibly be. While It is true my arm was sore, still I man aged to do everything necessary 1 do no! believe any one else will make any complaint of doctor or nurse. Anything further as to our house, it is not as good as we need, but we are doing the best we can under present conditions. (Signed) MltS. C. A. KAKES, The Nurse. Albuquerque, Jan. 30, 1U0K.

PKCKK.VI'Al'OH, J M. SWKKXKY, K. J. FERaCSSO.V. P. K. We write this voluntarily, having noticed Mrs. Wilson's state ment in the Morning Journal. Mrs. Wilson's Is-lter statement by Dr. t'arns The called forth by a letter written by Mrs. 1 & Wilson,' who was con fined at the detention house. Copies of her letter were sent to members of he board of health and the city council. Her letter is a follows: "Albuquerque, N. M.. Jan. 22, 108 "To the Hoard of Health of the City of Albuquerque: "Oentiemen: After the city health officer pronounced my case small pox ami put up the quarantine, he said he would either have to keep the whole Occidental building under quarantine or take nte to the pest hou'e, to which my husband ob jected, on the ground that it wasn't a fit place to take a sick person, much less a woman; upon which the city physician declared that the pest! house hal been newly fixed uo and toom especially prepared for wo men; that everything was In good condition and comfortable, that it hud a floor and that 1 should have proper care. "I'pon Inquiry It was found that no women attendants or patients were nut there, and It was decided th.it my mother should go with me. When the ambulance came the city physician seized upon my bedding wml mattress. Request was made that a cheaper mattress be taken In stead, and the one I had been using fumigated. To which answer was made that the mattress would have to be burned Anyway, If not taken. However, four patients were brought out while 1 was there, no mattress or cover was brought with them (as there was then enough there) and I have ascertained that their beds were fumigated an I are now lit use. "1 arrived at the pet house about 6 o'clock p. m. The room In to which I wa.s to have been put was so tilled with formaldehyde gaJ that It was Impossible to put me in there. This room which had been prepared especially (?) for women, is about ten by twelve feet square, of crudest adobe and dirt roof. On one side was a few rough plunks (on which was to have been put my bed), the remainder being dirt floor. In one corner is a small sheet Iron stove. Against the wall one grocery box was nailed; a stock of old bedding lay on the walls, and there was one chair. "When my mother decided that it would be Impossible to sleep in this room that night. I was taken In to the room which hud been occu pied by four men patients, only one of whom was there, as three hud been released that day. In this room, which Is about twice the sl.e of the first room, at one end were a few planka which partially covered the floor for about six feet. On these planks were three single cots of the cheapest kind, end old, part of them being reinforced with haling wire, and which when occupied sag ged to the limit of the wire springs. In the corner of the dirt floor was a fourth cot. In about the center of the room was a sheet Iron heater. In front of which were two more planks. A dirty kitchen table, an obi woshstund, two broken and one rush bottom kitchen chntrs. some goods boxes and much trash com pleted the furniture of this room. The one man patient and the Mexictin attendant put their cols In the kitchen. Daylight revealed that Ihis room was about, the same size of the second, entirely dirt floor. In the center of the room was A small est size cook stove, propped up with udohe bricks for front legs. On one side of the wall a plank was nailed for u shelf, also an apple box for a cupboard. Several boxes piled here and there answered for receptacles, groceries, etc., tin coffee and tea pots, frying pans (tin), and two or three granite sVe pans, tin stew pans, a few cups and suueers, some yellow cartliern bowls, steel knives and forks, one small china pitcher, sun dry siiihII things and R very dirty kitchen table furnished the equip ment or the tltchen. "There being another woman lirought out the same night I wus. we continued to occupy the room we slept In the first tilght, the Mex-l.-an assisting us in cleaning it up the best wa could. "On the third day my mother re turned home, tut I was then able to v. ait upon myself. The other wo man and I cooked all our own meals, washing our own dishes, dish towels, (which I took out with me), hand low els ami cared for our own room. "The Mexican, who was very kind and willing to lielp, made our fires, brought In otir wood, water, etc. The water that was famished was kept In whiskey barrels and lasted so strongly of whiskey that it was sickening. After about a week we succee' led In getting drinking water brought us in Jugs. "During a cloudy spell the Mex ican attendant became very much worried for fear we would frave ruin, and requested some canvas to be put up over the beds In esse of rain, as the roof luiked very badly. How ever, neither canvas nor the rain materialized. Hut when the wind blew the dust that shifted from the dirt roof and floated in the atmos phere was suffocating. "When we first went we found the fresh meat sitting open and dried on tin- shelf, the bread in a basket with a rag thrown over It. food sitting around open, etc., etc. However, the food furnished was abundant and of good grade. tin Friday before the Wednesday that I was released, the Mexican was dismissed and a nurse brought out. "From thut time I brought In my w n w ood and w ater, made our fires and. 111 fact, assisted the nurse some, as she was suffering greatly from a vaccinated arm (it being her duty to cook for the then four men patients). "Now, what I would like. to i know la. why should the city pnysi- iian misrepresent the condition or the pest house to people and per suade and compel them to go there, and then try to charge them five dollars per day for such accommo dations aa these? "If there Is the sllgh'est dAitbt In the mind of any member of the board as to the accuracy of any of my statements, I request the bortrd to make on Immediate personal In spection of the pest house In which I was imprisoned by the city of Al buquerque.
