DIPHTHERIA NOT PREVALENT. Protessor Search Discusses the Subject. There Is No Immediate Danger of the Disease Spreading. Tha Anll-Toxlne Treatment Said to Bs Still en Kxperlmaut—The Mew York Plau of Di agnoala. The Cheatnut atreet echool atill re mains closed, end tbe residents of Kant Loa Angelea are greatly excited over the presence of diphtneria in tbeir midst. Prof. P. W. Search, auperintendent of the city schoola, in talking over tbe matter with a Hkrai.o reporter yester day, aaid that tbere is no especial cause for alarm. "In the first plnce," aaid be, "we are daily notified by Dr. Powers, the city health officer, of all contagious caseß ooming within hia notice; and ue ia an authority upon such matters, Under the law, all physicians are com pelled to inform the health officer, in writing, of all cases of diphtheria and ; other contagious diseases which they are attending. The health officer at once Quarantines and fumigates tbe premises and does al! within bis power to prevent tbe spreading of the disease. "In the Chestnut street school district aiz aasea were reported by the health dfficar to this office, and I at once started out on a tour of investigation. I found that some scholar bad attended tbe nehnnl. and br coming in contact with him the other pupils bad contracted the disease. I decided that tbere was but one thing to do nnd tbat was to close the school for fear tbat more of tbe echolara might become ill. "While 1 am talking npon the ques tion," continued Professor Search, "I would like to bbv that our boelth depart ment is one ot the most important ad juncts of tbe city government, and it ie a shame that a larger appropriation ia not made to properly maintain it. I believe that Dr. Powers ia allowed but $200 monthly with which to pay hia three deputies, aod tbis amount will not recompense jgood and efficient men. No one knows hettter than I do how invalu able these health reporta are, and I am anre I do not know bow tbe city schools could be kept in a healthful condition and the spread of contagion prevented were it not for the supervision of sani tary matters by tbe health office. "On Monday the following cases were reported: Helen McEwen, 211 South Griffin avenue; Austin Randolph, 232 Mozart street; Hazel Johnston, 259 North Chestnut street; J. Hanley, r>JO Pasadena avenue; ICrnest Henry, 123 North Hayes atreet, and Fred Sutton, 225 North Chestnut street. Two of these oases are within a few feet of the achool just closed and other cases are in the immediate neighborhood. All these places have been placarded and quarantined, besides being fumigated, and I really do not believe tbat tbe dis ease will spread, for the simple reason that no new cases have been reported during the past two daya. "Children living in other sections of the city need have no fear, for the diphtheria is confined to a lew blocks in Eaßt Loa Angeles, and, on tbe ac count of tbe precautionary measures of tbe health officer, there is no danger of it spreading. "The Chestnut-street school will not open nntil after the holidays. All tbe clasa rooma are being calcimined and the rooma fumigated, so as to remove the germe oi the disease from tbe books and furniture. Wben it reopens, I think that there will be no more dan ger." Dr. Powers, tbe city health officer, in discußaing tbe matter said that he had done everything within hie power to confine the disease within its present limits, and he doea not anticipate tbat any more of tbe school children will be ■trioken down with tbe dread malady. He was asked if he thought it neces sary to Bend to New York for the unti toxine cure, and he replied tbat he did not. "We have no laboratory here," aaid he, "to experiment witb, and we do not know sufficient about the anti toxine remedy to eend east for it. It ie only an experiment at best, and should diptberia become epidemic, which is not at all likely, we would want some remedy, not an experiment." Dr. K. A. Bryant, the police surgeon, in discussing anti-tcxine as a cure, ex pressed himself aa did Dr. Powere. "ln my medical reports I find," eaid the doctor, "that Dr. Katz of lierlin reports that in tbe Children's hospital tbere, in four years, 1081 cases were treated, witn a mortality of 38 !) per cent. In three and one-half years immediately preced ing tbe beginning of treatment by c.nli toxine there was a mortality of 41.8 per cent. During tue tbree months anti toxins was used there were 128 cases co treated, witb a mortality of 13.2 per cent. Katz believes that it is too soon to state a positive conclusion, bnt tbinkß the anti-toxine treatment the best so far suggested, but be awaitß farther trials." Dr. Bryant explained that the anti toxine treatment is tbe inoculation of a guinea pig or otber enimal with diph theria and then using tbe Bernm as a preventive or cure for human beings. "The treatment may prove a succesß, bat I should not tavor its introduction here as an experiment." The New York method of diagnosis is the beet in use, aud is simple and prac tical. Tbey use boxes containing two glass tubes separated by a wooden pat' tition. One ol these tubes contains ster ilized sernm bouillon, tbe otber a metal rod carrying a sterilized cotton swab, held in plaoe by a cotton stopper. These boxes, witb directions for use printed thereon, are left at drag stores at differ ent points of tbe town and renewed at fixed intervale. A physician having a ease of suspected diphtheria gets one of the boxes, makes an inoculation, sends the box to the central station and the next morning tbe diagnosis is sent to bim by teleuhone. Tha advantages oi thia methou are evident. Isolation, prophylaxis, placarding the house, anxiety of parents, intelligent treat ment, subsequent disinfection, a etatis tioal knowledge of the real number of diphtheria cases, of membranous croup and of aimilar cases aud various otber important considerations, all depend apon the bacteriological diagnosis. While the disease is not epidemic bare the introduction of the New York plan may become necessary. Th Modern Mother Has fonnd that her little ones are im proved more by the pieaeaot laxative Fyrup of Fine, when in need of the laxa tive effects of a gentle remedy than by any other, and tbat it is more accepta ble to them. Children enjoy it and it benefits them. The true remedy. Syrup of Figa. is manufactured by the Calilor pie Fig Syrup Co. only. A FIGHT FOR COIN. Shares of tha take H.m.t Wattr Com panr in tha Ceorte. The case of W. F. Wbittier vs. Han cock M. Johnaon, in which large inter ests are involved, occupied the atten tion of Judge Van Dyke yesterday in department four. The action is one instituted to recover $45 976.83, alleged to be due upon 20 promissory notes, and for an order fore cloaing 9078 shares of the capital stock of the Lake Hemet Water company, given as security for the payment of the said notes. Tbe defendant not only invokes the statute of limitations as a bar to tbe proceedings, but claims that each and all of aaid notes were executed with the distinct understanding that payment of them should not be demanded by the plaintiff or any one else, but that they should be repaid out of the profile ac cruing to tbe defendant from time to time through tbe operationa of said corporations in the rentals and Bales ol water and land. And still further, in his cross com plaint, the defendant alleges that an agreement was entered into between himself and tbe plaintiff by the terms of which it was stipulated tbat he should advance all moneys necessary to meet all assessments which might be levied on defendant's stock, which amounted to one-tenth of tbe entire capital stock, for two years, at the expiration of wbicb term he wae to be repaid. It is inti mated also tbat tbe stock in controversy bad been fraudulently converted by plaintiff to his own use. ond defendant asks a payment for $150,000, tbe value; thereof. MEMORANDA.
