TI The yellow fever which is pre- Mar vailing in a few towns on the gulf tran cost has demonstrated that the TI experts and specialists do not bert know much about their business. Mr. They investigated the yellow fever TI at Ocean Springs and declared it vent to be dangu6. It was only after two or three patients had died the and autopsies were made, that the was fever was declared yellow fever. Mrs There were twelve suspecious cont cases in New Orleans, which the the famous aml intelligent experts eani could not diagnose, and notwith- A standing these facts, the Board of to tl Health had the simplicity to at. whe tempt the task of sending their hek experts to Mobile to look into the I fever of that city, when they sam tould not give a verdict upon Ibe their own suspecious cases. Mobile did right to refuse to al low the socalled experts from New Is ea Orleans to look into its health be cause they might be stupid enough to proclaim malaria or dangue that exist in Mobile to be yellow fever. The country at large does not r seem to iut much reliance in the I board of health, as nearly every or i. town in the state has established m quarantine against New Orleans, even in the face of the fact that the board of health had insisted that there was no authentic case Si of yellow fever in New Orleans. We are told that the twelve sus d picious cases are doing well, that Bi some of them are out, but they 1 ,t and the premises are strictly gnar- at I ded and disinfected, but not a cr' a bee word about the disease. If it was f 'l not yellow fever what is the de- i sease, why don't they proclaim it? the The pressure, it seems, has dlw d been so great, and the board of health and committee of expert ho having lost the confidence of the lic public throughout the country, et1 that Monday morning they repor- tic ted half of the twelve doubtful tet cases to be yellow fever, and also - reported a case of yellow fever ex-i isting at the Corner of Esplanade st Sand Mir street.
