[ Concerning the approaching city election tc be held April ist, 1913, I wish to remind you
| that lam the regular Democratic nominee for mayor, having been selected at a “legalized
| primary election” by a majority of the democrats over two prominent and influential citizens
I of the party. The time honored custom of allowing a democratic encumbent the second term
* has been passed on in my case, therefore as there have been no other nomination made I solicit
l the entire vote of the city and will endeavor to give Hot Springs my very best efforts and en
\ tire time to the duties of an office that effects the prosperity of a city to a greater degree than
I any oth^r. Respectfully,
W. W. WATERS

“There are innumerable cases ol
la grippe, pneumonia, acute rheuma
tism, tonsilitis and the like being
treated by the doctors of our corps
and many other eases have been re
ported by individual physicians.”
Dr. Dupuy also stated that the city
has been divided into six sanitary
districts, each in charge of an offi
cer of the sanitary corps of the na
tional guard.
As it will be several weeks before
the sewer system is in operation
again, a large corps of men will be*
kept active disposing of refuse and
in disinfecting all premises occupied
by refugees. Strict orders regarding
the disposition of garbage have been
issued and the people have been ad
vised by means of bulletins posted in
conspicuous places in the streets how
b^st to preserve the public health.
A small army of sanitary inspec
tors has been pressed into service
and every effort will be made to pre
vent any outbreak of a pestilence. It
was owning to the frightful flood con
ditions throughout the entire terri
tory of which Dayton is the heart,
rendering transportation facilities of
all kinds useless, that supplies for
the medical corps did not reach here
until several days after the flood
broke. Several cars of lime already
have reiached the city and many
more are enroute from g^rlous points
and arrangements for placing sani
tary measures in the hands of fed
eral officials were completed at the
conference between Secretary of
War Garrison, Maj. Gen. Xasunard
Wood, Surgeon Gen. Rupert Ulue and
the local trelief committee, headed
by John, H. Patterson. After Secre
tary Garrison had talked over the
telephone with Gov. Cox, he decided,
that while the state militia would be
able to police the city the federal
government should have charge of
the sanitation.
Mr. Garrison stated that Maj. I not.
‘Rhodes with co-operation with Maj.
Normoyle, would have charge in Day
ton. Maj. Normoyle had experience
in furthering relief in the Mississippi
flood district last year.
Secretary Garrison gave out the
substance of his telegram to Presi
dent Wilson us follows:
"I find the situation at Dayton to
be as follows:
"The flood has subsided so that
they have commifhtcation with all
parts of the city, no one being now
in any position of peril or without
food or shelter. The National Cash
Register plant has been turned into
a supply depot and lodging place for
those who have no other present
place.
"Surgeon Gen. Blue and some of
his officers are here, as are also
some naval sergeons. We are all
working in concert. The governor,
the mayor, the local committees, and
the citizens have all expressed much
gratitude at the action of the nation
al government and have welcomed us
warmly, all of them stating that the
the fact that a direct hospital has
been sent to their community has
been of the greatest benefit to the
morals of the situation.
1 find a competent (force is already
organized to clean up the streets re
move the debris and do general work,
of that description and have agreed
to work under the direction of the
army surgeon 1 leave in charge of
sanitation. Tho national guards
have their adjutant general, Georg#
H. Wood, here In command of the
military situation and he has eordt*
ally offered to co-operate in every
way with our work of sanitation.
"1 thir.k that the situation here is
very sa Isfactory and that <his com
munity will find Itself in a reassur
ed position within a very short time
and facing only then the problems
of repair, restoration and rehabilita
tion.
“I will go back to Cincinnati to
night to get Into touch with matters'
\
left unfinished there and will go to
Columbus at the qaijliest moment.
Gov. Cox tells me that he thinks mat
ters are In a satisfactory condition
in Columbus; that be has ample im-,
mediate supply of medicines and
other necessities and that much of
each is on the way. The weather is
very fine and there does not seem
to be any cause of apprehension of
further floods in the vicinity of Day
ton.’*
Fifteen thousand persons subsist
ed today on rations given out undef
direction of the relief committee. Ten
thousand of these, It is estimated
were in their homes and food was
carried to them in boats and automo
biles.
About five thousand are being car
ed *for at the relief stations. This
shows a marked reduction in the
number of persons being publicly
fed.
The relief committee has made no
attempt to keep a record of the num
ber of rations sent out. There is
plenty of food and it is being placed
in baskets in lots to serve five per
sons for two days. Over candles given
out with the food, the people are
cooking coffee, but the other food
is eaten cold. There is no gas and
very little coal.
The relief stations have been tax
ed to capacity now for the flood has
subsided enough for people to leave
their homes. Homes of persons more
fortunate have been thrown open to
those whose houses have been swept
away or destroyed. Homes usually
housing four or five persons in many
instances now are sheltering from 2b
to 20.
Beginning early today the relief
committee sent out tons of food foi;
these people. Some were found in
; the more remote sections who had
not tasted food since Tuesday, but
comparatively these cases were few.
Dr. Win. Oolby Rucker, Assistant
surgeon general of the United States
Public Health Service, who came
here from Washington at. the direc
tion of the secretary of the treasury
with Surgeon General Rupert Blue,
tonight gave the Associated Press
the following outline of the sanitary
conditions existing in the city:
“A survey of conditions in Dayton
today shows that the sanitary situ
ation is not so bad as was at first
thought. Citizens have been warn
ed to boil all drinking water and to
'bury refuse. City -water is now
flowing linger twenty pound pres
sure. Sewers in some sections are
again in operation. The city ex
expect* to have others working to
morrow. •
“The city has fceen divided into
sixteen sanitary districts and tonight,
physicians who have been sworn in
as district sanitary officers are be
ing instructed as to their precise du
ties as Iliads of these districts.”
Blue and Stacker go to Hamilton
tomorrow to observe the situation
there.
The federal sanitation officers are
receiving the complete co-operation
of the medical officers of the Ohio
National Guard.

Levee Breaks and Wall of Water
Pours Into City.
‘Ijttwrenic'eburg, Jnfd., March 29.—
The south levee at l^awrencehurg
broke at 2:05 this aiternoon. A wall
of water poured through the open
ing and went raging through the
center of the town, tearing up all
before it.
Houses were crushed like egg
shells and the wreckage was carried
tour miles along the Miami bottoms
to the fill on the main line of the Rig
Four.
The break came when it was least
expected but the resident* were
warned yesterday to leave town aud
uo lives ware lost..
A negro was rescued from the
roof of his dwelling by township
trustee, John W. Oberling.
No estimate of the damage can be
made now.
Water is standing six feet deep in
the streets and the river Is rising
slowlj.
For three days and nights the res
idents had been strengthening the
levee with sand bags.

MODERN CANNING FACTORY CLEAN
As Highest Class Hotel Kitchen
Most of the work of the modern cannery is done by machines.
Peaches are pared by machinery; peas are vined or podded by
machines, sweet corn is husked by machines, and so on. Jhe
amount of hand work is reduced to a minimum. Fresh running
water 1b supplied in every part of the factory. Workers are re
quired to keep scrupulously neat and clean.
CANNED FOODS
are used by thousands of modern housewives, but at that they \
are not used as freely as they should be. If renple knew more
about them they would use more, for they are more economical
than the fresh variety, which is either grown here in hot houses,
or shipped a long way from the gardens of the south.
CANNED FOODS WEEK
will be an eye opener to many a woman who will in the fu
ture take advantage of the assorted case lot sales that we hold
and will fill her pantry with a choice selection of fine fruitB and
vegetables, which are more appetizing, and possibly more health
