DOVE OF PEACE FLUTTERS AWAY FROM RINGSIDE TAINTED MEAT FED PEOPLE IN SOME RESTAURANTS BY M. M. WINANB. Another man —an usher at the Orpheuni theater —died the other day from ptomaine poisoning, sup posed to have been contained in hßnriffirger which lie ate for dinner at n downtown restaurant, Viru lence'of the poison in Its deadly work_ ht eating away at the young f-.tlloVi vitals astonished experts cf the medical profession—they had never seen n < aae quite so bad as this, yet, all tilings considered, it Is no wonder. II is not strange that hamburger- the kind that Is to be si en in various parts of the city—should contain death dealing poison. To eat of the blackened, ta'nUd Stuff is little short of trifling with suicide—an invitation to death. There are reasons o believe that health laws are being broken in Spokane—that coloring is being put Into the hamburger. That tainted j meat is being fed to the customers in some of the cheap eating houses there is no doubt. Can hamburger or any other kind of meat that has been left open to the Rir and dust, except for a thin wire screen that cannot re ard contaminating substances from the streets and the gutters, be fit tor the human stomach? No .one would care to eat such stuff were they to know of such conditions, but, unconscious of the manner in Which it is being handled, they are latitfA it daily in Spokane. No wonder another man is dead, from the hidden poison of this con-1 laminated, half decayed meat. Meat inspection, restaurant keepers de clare, is carried on at a rigid pace here in Spokane, but there are many reasons to believe that some ( i the so-called inspectors are In* j-pec'ors only In name. Certainly it Is not an aid to longevity to eat "hash hamburger" such as Is sold in some of the JapauetS restaurants in the cheap NATIONAL BANK IS ROBBED MASKED MEN TAKE $10,000 FROM NEBRASKA BANK.

This is vouched for by men who declare they have Been it done, yet the Spokane peo ple who are hiring inspectors to protect the public health have seen no punishment meted out to men carrying on this sort of "hashing." Hamburger and sausage, steaks and other meats are permitted to f,it around until they have become black and surface crusted, and are then thrown on the griddle and CCok.d for hungry worklngmen to eat.
