The Health Office and Alleged Cases
of Smallpox
The Criticism of Local Ili slcinna
on the 3Inny Inttents and IVw
Dentil Conditions In MIclilKnn
Proposals for aplitlia Llgrjitlnff
The outbreak of smallpox -which has
been continuous since last fall 5as now
about worn Itself out Unless new cases
develop the last patient will be ready to
leave the- hospital in about two weeks
At the present time there are only two
house in quarantine and eleven cases in
the- hospital in advanced stages of con
The history of the disease during the
fall and winter has been that new acces
sions are brought in from nearby States
and from the roaming of such people
about the city the disease spreads Were
it not for this the malady would have
been stamped out months ago Wash
ington apparently Is a sort of mecca for
Maryland and Virginia negroes who are
attacked with smallpox when they are
within reach of the District as they arc
better cared for here than they could be
at home
The Health Department records show
that the disease Is almost entirely con
fined to negroes and the care and treat
ment of cases lias been such that very
few deaths only three have resulted
This fact has led to some criticism of the
Health Department on the part of a few
local physicians w ho have said that many
of tho people treated did not have small
pox hut some skin disease like chicken
pox or German measles It Is said by
the critics of the Health Department that
the symptoms In these eruptive diseases
are about the same and that it Is dif
ficult to distinguish between them espe
cially In the early stages
Some doctors have gone so far as to
say that Inspectors of the department
have probably been deceived as to the
nature of the malady and It lias been
hinted that somn persons have been hur
ried off to the smallpox hospital who wcro
suffering with chicken pox or acne
In the absence of Dr William C Wood
ward the Health Officer from this city
yesterday it was Impossible to obtain a
statement from him relative to the mat
ter The physician In charge of the
smnlipox service stated that no mistakes
of this kind have been made He said
that the greatest possible care is exer
cise in all cises AfUr the reports of
suspicious Illness reach the Health Office
they are alwajs carefully and fully inves
tigated before any artion is taken Ho
explained that a patient was often left
one or tno days where he was taken III
Until the nature of the disease could be
determined The physician said that tho
men in charge of the service from expe
rlHieo und- observation nre better able to
pass upon a case of smallpox than an
crolnary practitioner who sees it only
once or twice perbtps in his whole life
Th officials of the Health Department
stated that thU criticism of the dealings
of health boards with smallpox Is com
mon throughout ho country They cited
the State of Michigan as an example
where the Board of Health a few days
ago Issued a statement relative to the
matter as follows
Since the 1st of January outbreaks of
smallpox in S4 localities in Michigan have
been caused to cease and In G3 locali
ties or 73 ner cent of those outbreaks
the disease was restricted to the one
household where the first case occurred
Notwithstanding this splendid record of
effective work by the health service the
disease continues to spread because In
the other outbreaks where the disease
was not restricted to the first household
It was first called Cuban itch cedar
Itch chicken nox or acne and not re
ported to the health officer so that re
strictive measures could be taken Be
cause of such lack of proper reports
smallpox continues to spread It Is now
present in 100 places in Michigan and Is
steadily increasing
The officials of the Health Department
were very positive in their statements
that no mistakes of this kind are made
It was Intimated that If nny Washington
physician doubts the truth of this state
ment ho will be permitted to visit the
wards of the smallpox hospital to seethe
facts thre revealed and be convinced
Walter C Allen the Electrical En
gineer has forwarded to the Commission
ers the specifications and proposals for
naphtha lighting for the nest fiscal year
and has recommended that they be ad
vertised acrordinff to law Mr Allen
states that he has Inserted In the specifi
cations nn alternative proposition to that
of the specifications of the present year
giving bidders an opportunity to fur
nish their own lanterns as well as the
balance of the equipment With refer
ence to the general subjct Mr Allen
This department has experimented
with the plin of furnishing lanterns to
the contrartor but it results In continual
disagreements as to the fitness and quali
ty of the lanterns and Is not conducive
to good senlce 1 have also changed the
minimum number otjamps to be main
tained from 1U0O to 509 The gas company
J Is rapidly extending its mains in those
which enables the department to improve
the service by changing from naphtha
to gas While I do not expect thi num
ber of naphtha lamps to be less than

portunity to reduce that number If nec
The recomnw ndation has been approv
ed und orders will be Issued accordingly

ent the overllow in case of fire and that
they shall not be located within 100 feet
of the nearest dwelling
Whlie there is no regulation to cover
the storage of calcium carbide which
under certain conditions Is lioth Inflam
mable and explosive to a high degree
when mixed with air I am of the opinion
that section 1K1 should cover such storage
and I cannot therefore recommend the
granting of this application and would re
quest a reference of the matter to the
Iirc Marshal for recommendations as to
the proper kind of building for the stor
age of this material
Judge Walter S Cox of Seventeenth
and I Streets northwest has forwarded
to the Commissioners a protest against
the Issue of a permit for a shooting gal
lery on one of the corners of the Inter
secting streets mentioned Judge Cox
states that he cannot Imagine that the
application for the permit which he un
derstands has been made will be seri
ously entertained by the Commissioners
He suggests that the establishment of
a shooting gallery In a first class residence
section of the city Is obvloasly out of
place He thinks that it would constitute
an intolerable nuisance against which the
whole neighborhood would protest
In acting upon the application of L C
Kims of the Blsmerc for Information
as to what disposition shall be made of
tin cans and of similar refuse the Com
missioners it is understood will refer
him to a recent report upon the subject
by the Superintendent of Street Cleaning
This report was to the effect that such
waste material could be disposed of upon
the dump In the southwest part of the
city where It can be dumped under the
direction of a municipal official
The Commissioners have received from
the Secretary of the Takonia Park Citi
zens Association a copy of the resolu
tions passed at the last meeting calling
for adequate lire protection for Takoma
Park The resolutions are
Iteolved That In tho judnnent of the
members of the Citizens Association of
Takoma Park steps should le taken by
the Commissioners of the District of Co
lumbia to provide proper and adequate
lire protection for said park and that th
tarn- should for the time elng consist
of a hose carriage with full complement
of hose to be located at some suitable
point in the park
Resolved That this association recom
mends that the Commissioners of the Dis
trict of Columbia include in their esti
mates for the next fiscal year a sufficient
appropriation to cover the purchase of
the hose carriage and hose
The rtcommendatlon of Walter C Al
len the Electrical Engineer that the
United States Electric Lighting Company
lie granted permission to connect premi

three wire overhead service from the pole
In front of said premises has been ap
proved They also ask that they be al
low eil to remove the overhead wires run
ning from the same overhead line to

Mr Allen explains that the Commis
sioners have authority to grant the per
