Mayor of Boise Bucks State Boa r d of

Influenza

While 8.
H .Hays, mayor of Boise,
was questioning the legality of the
state board of health's elosing order, to
prevent spread of Spanish influenza,
«nd suspended the order in Boise, until
the attorney general ruled whether or
not the board could issue such drastic
edict, T. E.
Orangeville, promulgated a closing ord
er, at the request of the state board of
health, which closed even the mayor's
own motion picture theatre.
Orangeville has shown a disposition to
respect the order, without questioning
its legality but Boise, has not. Be
cause Boise has raised an objection, the
courts must decide whether the state

board of health acted within its (lowers
in issuing the order, for at least ten
complaints, according to word from
Boise, have been filed charging the de
fendants, pool hall operators, with fail
ure to observe the edict. The complaints
were flied by the attorney general's of
fice.
i
r,
Walters Rules for Board.
"Other municipalities in the state
Are warned to observe the be
cause it will be enforced,'' said Attor
ney General Walters. "The state board
has (lower to issue such an order under
the statutes, and municipalities cannot
suspend orders made pursuant to
statute.''
In support of his view, the attorney
general quoted the following language
from a legal authority:
"General provisions for the
preservation of the life and health
of the people of the state are no
more suspended in the territory
comprised within a municipality
than are the criminal laws of the
state. It would lie obviously un
wise for a state to delegate to any
municipality full and complete
control of matters pertaining to
the public health. The municip
ality might in the preservation of
sanitary conditions in its own ter
ritory work incalculable mischief
to the health and comfort of peo
ple living in adjacent territory. To
prevent this being done, it is pri
marily necessary that there shall
be one central authority clothed
with the power of affording equal
protection to all."
Fines Up to $300.
Failure to observe an order issued
by the state board of health pursuant
to statute is punishable as a misde
meanor, and persons convicted are sub
ject to fines of not less than $5(1 or
more than $300, or imprisonment of not
less than 30 or more than 90 days in the
i
:
county jail, or both fine and imprison
ment.
"The board's authority," said the
attorney general, "to issuse orders to
prevent disease is set out i nscction 1086
of the state statutes." This seetion is,
in part as follows:
"Whenever the state board of health
shall have cause to believe that there
is any danger of cholera, smallpox or
other contagious or infectious disease,
invading this state or country, it shall
be the duty of said board to take such
action, and adopt and enforce such rules
and regulations as may be necessary to
prevent the introduction of such infec
tious of cantagious disease within the
state, and any persons or persons or cor
porations refusing or neglecting to obey
such rules and regulations shall be deem
ed guilty of a misdemeanor."

A British Port—A large number of
American troops have been lost as the
result of the sinking of the transport

The Otranto after the collision was
dashed to pieces on the rocks off the
south Scottish, coast with a probable
loss of 372 American soldiers.
Three hundred one men were taken
to Belfast by the British destroyer
Mounsey, the only vessel which made an
attempt at rescue in the terrific gale
when the Kashmir, another vessel in
the convoy with the Otranto rammed
the Otranto amidships.
372 American Soldiers Missing.
Of the 699 American soldiers on board
the Otranto, 310 were landed. Seven

The Otranto struck the rocks Suu
day night south of Saligo bay, Islay
island, an
uninhabited section where
the coast line in many places rises
straight out of the" water to the roeky

As the destroyer neared the side of

Jump to Destroyer's Deck.
The captain of the destroyer, each
time it was brushed away from the
side of the Otranto, again would push
near enough for many more men to
jump to the deck of his vessel. He
described as a veritable rain the number
of men landing on the destroyer.
Many of those who reached the decks
of the vessel suffered broken bones or
otherwise were hurt. Those who missed
the deck of the destroyer went to al
most instant death.
Four times the battered destroyer
