Representative of the National
Erectors' association declared today
that the Indianapolis investigation
was vastly more important than the
Los Angeles probe.
Preparation of evidence for presen
tation to the federal grand Jury in
vestigating the dynamite conspiracy
was today pra ctically completed and
early forty additional subpoenas for
witnesses were Issued. District At

practically useless, as the evidence
now in hand here is sufficient. Al
though Miller declined to give figures,

Dr. David W. Stevenson, com
menting on local conditions, stated
that there was quite a number of
tuberculosis cases in Wayne county
which, unquestionably, are not re
ceiving proper attention and treat
ment. Dr. Stevenson further said
that the demand for treatment here
was imperative, as the state institu
tion at RockviUe, already has its full
quota of. Wayne County sufferers,
and there is positively no local place,
either public or private, where the
victims of the disease can be treated.
Dr. Stevenson advocates the es
tablishment of tents or shacks on the
Reld Hospital grounds. He says the
presence of consumptives is not dan
gerous to the other patients, and
they can receive more constant and
expert attention there than in any
private or smaller place. "It should
also be the duty of the city hospital
to care for those in the final stages
of the disease," stated Dr. Stevenson,
"for then is the t'me when they

John H. Johnson, of the firm of Ft.
Johnson and company, stated today
that the key to the whole situation
lies in education. "We have already
made great headway In blotting out
the disease," said Mr. Johnson, "but
there is a great demand for more
work, much of which could be ac
complished by a visiting nurse, as
proposed by the county society."
Dr. T. Henry Davis, city commis
sioner of health, says that 32 local
deaths in 1910, almost one in every
ten, were caused by tuberculosis.

If the plans of the county anti-tuberculosis
soceity for securing a vis
iting nurse next year are successful,
said' Dr. Stevenson. The county can
do this if the public supports the
sale of red cross seals and buy a
sufficient number. This nurse un
doubtedly would save many lives, for
she can educate the public in pre
vention of the disease, and can also j
see that afflicted persons are proper- j
ly cared for. One of Dr. Stevenson's
beliefs is that the establishment of
an open air school can do much in t
this cause. He said it would be a
good Idea to use a single room , in !
some large sChooT, take oUt'the win- j
