TIONS AND PUBLIC GATHER
INGS WHILE FLU IS BAD
With a new outbreak of tbe influenza
worse than at any time since the epi
demic began several weeks ago, Spokane
has again clamped down the lid which
was lifted in order to hold the big three
days' peace celebration of Thursday,
Friday and Saturday, last week. With
new cases developing at the rate of 300
per day and many deaths occurring, the
metropolis of the Inland Empire has
been forced to cancel invitations to In
land Empire towns to send delegates to
the fruit convention and the Farmers'
Union convention, both of which were
to have started next Tuesday. The. rigid
rules now being enforced in Spokane are
just what the Moscow health officers
have been trying to avoid in Moscow by
asking the co-operation of the people in
enforcing a voluntary quarantine here.
The following report published in last
night's Spokane Chronicle shows the
seriousness of conditions there and what
steps are being taken to prevent a spread
of the disease. The Chronicle says :
"In an order issued this morning by
Health Officer J. B. Anderson and taking
effect immediately, an indefinite quaran
tine is placed on public dances, on ac
count of the influenza situation.
"Included in the ban order are all mass
assemblages, community singing, con
ventions, where delegates come from out
side the citv and crowding in the lobbies
of the theaters.
"The order also calls upon parents to
keep all children of school age at home,
away from theaters and off the streets.
Hope to Curb Epidemic.
"The quarantine order was issued
after a consultation among Dr. Ander
son, Commissioner Charles Fleming and
other members of the board of health.
They hope that by the provisions of the
order the influenza epidemic can be
greatly abated, the public protected from
the disease and at the same time busi
ness not interfered with.
Cut Down Classes.
" 'The ban -on dancing includes only
public dances in halls and restaurants
where the crowding of people is great
and dangerous,' said Dr. Anderson,
do not wish to interfere^ with dancing
schools where instruction is given by
teachers, but the limit must be six
couples at a time at such a school.
"All children of school age are barred
from theaters, must keep off the streets
and remain at home. Parents are cau
tioned to make children observe the pro
visions of this order, the health depart
ment believing that parents should have
better control over the children than the
health department can be expected to.
"Theater managers arc prohibited
from selling a ticket to any person when
there is not a scat in the theater for that
person. This order means just what it
says and must be strictly obeyed.
"No persons will be allowed to stand
or crowd in the lobby of any motion
picture, vaudeville or other theater.
There shall be no such thing as 'stand
ing room only.'
"All community sings, massmeetings.
conventions where delegates from out
side the city and large assemblages arc
prohibited. We want no outsiders to
bring the disease into the city.
"Lodges and society meetings and the
luncheons of the different civic and
social organizations do not come within

New Cases Are 134.
■'With 134 cases of influenza and four
cases of pneumonia reported at the health
office at noon, the situation is considered
much improved. Of the 134 cases re
ported 43 were reported by a physician
through the mail, the letter being dated
December 2 and the report covering
period of several days. Another physi
cian reported 21 cases for an entire,
week, his report being also added to
today's total. The total for the epidemic
onw stands at 5,864 cases of influenza,
621 eases of pneumonia and 226 deaths.
"The public can be assured that the
health officer will think of only the
greatest good to the greatest number in
any action taken,' said Dr. Anderson.
'This thought has governed my actions
in the past and will continue to do so in
"The situation serious but no further
ban will be ordered unless, in the opinion
of the health officer and the board of
health, such a ban is absolutely neces
sary, and then only as a last resort.
"Individual common sense and care
will do more to abate the 'flu' than any
other agency. This I have stated many
times, and it, is as true now as it ever
was. If each person will take care of
his or her own health and, if afflicted
with the influenza, use the treatment and
precautions that have been many times
published, there will be an astonishing
falling off in the epidemic.
