A correspondent of tin- Commissioners

expectoration in public places It appears
that astringent 1 iw has been enacted for
thit cltj ipin the subject nnd that sa
cral arrests have b en made and several
lersons remanded for trial under the
law If convicted thtse will be nned ac
cording to the nature of the offence
Citizen alsi submis n statement of
Pr John 1 Creisbv Commissioner of the
15ard of Health in defence of the law
and relative to the dangeis of promiscu
ous expectoration on the sidewalks and
elsewhere ith reference to the latter
subject Dr Crosb savs
It is a well known fact that most of
diseases of the iespiratorj tract In
cluding ellpluhei la measles scarlet fever
pneumonia tuberculous Inlluenz1 and
probablj all forms of acute bronchitis
are the result of the action of germs
which are present in ihe secretions of the
respirator organs It Ins been shown
also Investigations that in
mam instances these germs are present
for long periods of time during convalesc
ence from these diseases in the mucous
s crctions and In mild and unrecognized
Throucrf -spitting in public convey
ances on sidewalks station platforms of
elevated rallwajs In public buildings
etc the germs producing these diseases
are wideb disseminated and are constant
ly tracked into the houses on the soles of
shoes and by means cf the trailing skirts
ol -women which have been soiled by the
expectoration These considerations from
a public health lew point are quite suf
ficient in themselves to justify the en
actment of stringent regulations prohib
iting the practice aside from the fllthi
ness of the habit and the public nuisance
which thosi who practice it become
As showing the great importance of
this relation to only one disease it may
be mentioned that in the Borough of Man
hattan during the last year there were
over flWO cases of tuberculosis reported
nnd it is censerv atlv ely estimated that at
least ZOW cases of this disease exist in
the Uorough of Mannattan and the vast
majority of these latter In the Infectious
stage are morlng freely around the
streets of the city expectorating on the
sidewalks in public conveyances and
wherever it may be convenient
It is not necessary to emphasize the
dangers which arise in this waj through
th dissemination of the tubcrcule bacil
li which are the cause of this disease and
which are contained in the expectoration
In almost Incredible numbers It has
been estiraaUu J xisun in the hc
ti e stage of the malady may discharge
not less than jinwwwOiw of these in the
sputum In the course of twenty four
hours 3 he department of health has long
emphasized the fact that tuberculosis is
communicable and distinctly preventable
that It Is not directly Inherited but is
produe ed solely through its transmission
irum some human being or animal suf
fering with it by means of the germs
thrown off In the diseased tissue
lhe danger frTim this disease is even
greater because the large majoritj of
cases are among the poor in the over
crowded badly ventilated tenements and
among tho laborers In the workshops
printing otiiets sweat shops mil stores
of the city Through the presence of such
large numbers ot cases and the 1 ick of
precaution In regard to the disposal ef
the expectoration the streets and iiibllc
conveyances floors of public buildings
etc become Infected and the geinis
spread through the drying and pulveriz
ing of the sputum floating in the air as
The Commissioners have referred the
communication to the Health Departmert
for coi sideration and report with
reference to what may be done to
lessen the evil ofTromlscuous expectora

places In ashlngion
D W Classic acting as attorney for
George Thon has sent to the Commis
sioners a statement relative to the use of
a fruit stand In front of the premises COS
Eleventh Street northwest He asks that
the order of the lieutenant of the rirst
precinct directing him to remove the
stand be revoked and that it be allowed to
remain The attorney submits the follow
ing reasons given by Mr Thon why he
should not be compelled to comply with
the orders of the police
I rent the entire premises consisting
of a two story and basement house and
am entitled to the proper nnd legitimate
use of the same without hindrance
Between the sidewalk and the house
Is a decx dangerous area about five to
five and a half feet wide provided with
steep steps leading down to the basement
without barrier or guard
-1 do not reach the basement from the
outside The entrance to my store room
is reached by steps- There is projecting
from the front of the house and extend
ing about three feet three Inches a bay
window Icha lng the remaining part of
the area open and exposed
Tor the purposes of the business and
to display my fruit 1 have extended an
Inclined fruit holder over said open area
from the bay window to the edge of the
sidewalk where It stands a trifle more
than a foot In height
The fruit display stand Is whollv on
mj own premises does not extend a far
upon the sidewalk as the post and barrier
arrangesl In front of and extending north
on Eleventh Street from me The stand
provides better protection to pedestrians
on the sidewalk
My dlsplaj stand Is of tasty design and
much more attractive than either of the
unsightly areas the one In front of my
premises and the one In front of prem
ises -10
To remove my stand will be to remove
all barriers against accident and protec
tion to pedestrians and will have de
prived mc of the advantage of raj loca
tion for business It will Impair mj busi
ness If it does not wholl destroy It
without corresponding good results to
an one else A fruit stand on thisse
without an outdoor display would
force a suspension of business within a
few months
My fruit display does not exceed the
usual dlsplaj by retail dealers In all cities
nd towns f the United States and 1 am
at a loss to understand wliv 1 should be
singled out and be compelled to house and
conceal mj fruit behind a live and one
lialf foot unslghily area
1 obey the law like other citizens meet
all my obligations like other citizens and
Insist as 1 have a right to do that the
same treatment that Is -meted out to other
law abiding citizens shall be accorded to
rae and that I shall not be annojed or
molested In tho proper and legitimate ex
ercise of my rights in conducting my

bv The best that the Weather Bureau
predicts is partly tloudy Of course
this seemingly trite nhrase can mean a
multitude of conditions as taken Hy the

mean that a discouraging film of grey

so closely watched as on the daj before

The rain of yesterday morning wns
caused by the passage of a rather severe

Government Inspector Snow of Jersey
City who his been conducting an Investi

Mr Tenncll admits that the shortage ex

what became of the money and his
friends say they do not understand it as
he is a man of good habits
When the shortage was first discovered
friends ot the postmaster got together
and Senator Mahlon Pitney County Clerk
Daniel S Voorhees and Surrogate David

to be needed When they found this

sought to get free from seme financial ob

Much of his salary of 3 COO a sear Is ru
mored to have been tied up In this way
The olllee affairs were conducted very

NORFOLK Va April K The Boston
team sprung a surprise on the Yale men
here today and at the same time estab
lished a precedent that some of the other
clubs of the National League may decide
to follow
Yale was booked to meet Selees men
but the latter declared the game off say
ing that President Soden had wired him
not to play with the New Haven team
as they had plajed a game on Friday with
the Baltimore team of the American
League an organization entirely outside
the National League
Manager Ellason of the Yale team and
Manager Selee had a talk In which the
latter explained things but nothing camo
of the talk and there was no game Both
teams seem to regret the occurrence but
there is no bad feeling about the matter
