The records of the Health Office show
Fomc interesting facts about the preva
lence of smallpox In the city Thanks to
our neighbors the States of Marvland
nnd Virginia not to mention North Caro
lina and West Virginia Washington has
not been without smallpox for a period
of more than nine months Despite the
care taken by the Health Department to
Keep the disease In check It is imported
ljiom the outside and scattered broadcast
among the colored population
The records show that there are at the
present time eighteen cases under treat
ment In Uie hospital and something like
forty people are in the detention camp or
In quarantined houses awaiting the de-
elopment of the disease in case the con
tagion has affected them The greater
numb r of the patients under treatment
were removed from houses in the eastern
section of the city though the Northwest
Is well represented The eighteen cases
developed in ten premises which at the
present time represent the possible centres
of contagion Only two of the eighteen
cases developed in the detention camp
nnd two were imported
Since January 1 of this year the Health
Department has treated thirty two cases
f smallpox at the hospital The dis
ease is of rawer a mild type and in
the majority of cases iclds to the usual
treatment There have been no deaths
Of the thirty two cases three only were
w lute iieople and in two instances the
lni iector has not been able to trace
the disease to any known source no that
It Is assumed that the white people were
exposed to the disease by contact with
colored persons in cars or otherwise
Dr William C Woodward Health Offi
cer in speaking of the matter esterday
said that It would be difficult to stamp out
the smallpox in the District until the
States ceae to send new cases here and
until the colored people learn to take core
of ttemelves Dr Woodward called spe
lial attention to the fact that two cases
j ui In the hospital were brought in from
the outside and that nearly all the cases
t incc January 1 are traceable to two
sources of contagion both of which
liad their origin from imported cases
H appears from what the Health Officer
said that a large percentage of the cases
treated wen traceable to John Hamilton
Ho came to the ell November 21 of last
ear and vl llid a sick cousin at 3J
a sea
Wilie Court northeast There he met sev
eral friends and from this source the
Health Office has traced more than thirti
es ses through the Brent Browns and
others Hamilton lived ut Halls Station
Md and his lt to his couin ns the
Health Officer expressed it left behind far
reaching consequences
Another source of many cases wa the
outbreak of the malad in two houes on
the New Cut Bond Several have de
veloped in persons who visited the sick in
one or the otlier of thene houses
Dr Woodward saia that mere nau oeeu
no general recourse to vaccination and he
did not think there would tie While
there has been a good many cases the
he said had not spread widely He
could sec no possible cause of alarm In
preaent conditions and the fact that it has
not gone beyond the limits of certain well
deDned centres of contagion he thought
ought to assure everybody that tho trouble
is being eriiclentl dealt with
In speaking of compuKon vaccination
Dr Woodward stated that it had ken re
sorted to in the past and would be again
whenever It should be thought necessary
The course to be pursued he iald was for
the Health Department to call the atten
tion of the Commissioners to the blef of
the office that general vaccination was
necessarv In the interests of the publlo
health The Commissioners then have tha
nuthority he explained to order compul
sory house-to-house vaccination b stn
eral proclamation
Dr Woodward stated that he believed
the publication or the facts nJalinc to
Jill easel reported to his office had a
bencnclil effect He is of the opinion that
suth publication in the napers warns h
ple away from the infected localities and
in that way prevents the spread of the
disease Dr Woodward is thoroughly op
posed to the exploitation of Sfiisational
paragraphs calculated to frighten the
timid but he liellcves the people of Well
ington who read the nespaier should
be informed every time a ease of small
pox is leported to him Concealment of
Ui plain fartx he regards a serious fault
of public administration
Dr Woodward stated that there were
probahl some eases of the disease which
are not reported to the Health Office The
disease is of sicli a mild tyue that a
physician is not summoned and those
who have it wander about and expos
uthcrs In this way the Health Office
accounts for some of the caseb the are
unable to trace
George II Hurries commanding the

The Capital Traction Company through
its president re cently nslccd permission
ot the Commissioners to paint a strip
white twelve Inches wide between the
slot rail mid the track at such points
as have been designated as being the
common runs of the Tire Department
By a recent order of the Commissioners
It is made eibllgatory on the part of the
company to stop its cars at these points
nnd the request Is made as a matter of
convenience to the motomien so that
the y will not be compelled to carry all
these iKilnts in their head
The Engineer Commissioner Ill consid
ering the matter recommended to his col
leagues that the request be granted ex
cept that the strip to le painted should
lie made red instead or white as in his
opinion the reel color would le less
