NO DANGER Of
Reports which werO scattered
abroad yesterday that Juneau was en
dangered by an epidemic of typhoid
fever were today branded by* physic
ians, as groundless. "There are only
two cases in the hospital, and neither
is related to the other," said Dr.; L.
O. Sloanc. "Both cases are isolated.
One patient is under my care and tne
other Is under the care of Dr. Dawes.
There is nothing to become alarmed
By 10 o'clock last night the re
ports had been circulated all over the
city, and deep concern was exhibited.
Citizens suggested that the city water
be chemically analyzed, but this al
ready has been done, and the purity
of the water has been established.
Fifteen years ago typhoid fever bo
came epidemic in Juneau and several
persons died. The cause was not
traced to the water.
Andy Brown, of the Porsoverance,
who was thought to havo been suf
fering from typhoid fever, was found
today to have been suffering from ery
sipelas. When he entered the hospi
tal Brown had a high fever. He is
getting bettor now.
Notices of delinquency In (ho mat
ter of license taxes are being sent
out this week by the office of the
Territorial Treasurer, urging that the
matter be attended to as soon as pos
sible. While It is the desire of the
office, to get the license moneys Jn as
early as may be, it is the intention of
the Treasurer to enforce Iramcdinte
payment owjng to the newness of the
act levying the tax. T*hese notices are
being sent out to those who are re
quired to make application for pro
visional license, as well as to those
who requlro only the ordinary licens
es. The license moneys have been
coming in in large amounts for the
past month, and the Treasurer appre
hends no difficulty in securing the
collection of all license fees due.
More or less delay has beon looked
for on account of the great distances
needed to be covered and also in con
sideration of the fact that the license
law as recently enacted differ:; from
the usual custom.
