Jackson last night resigned as health officer; and the city council at a special meeting this forenoon appointed Dr. J. H. Woodruff to take full charge of the present epi demic, acting in' the capacity of health otlicer. ' The resignation of D. Jackson was the direct outgrowth of representations to the state board of health at a confer ence in Montpelier, after which the state 1 board consulted with Dr, Jackson. At the latter conference the state-appointed, health officer, while agreeing that there had been some friction in the conduct of the city's health department because of lack of entire harmony with the citv council, denied that he iiad neglected his duty, yet, feeling that he did not wish to hinder harmonious action at an im portant time, he would tender his resig nation. This Dr. Jackson did at once, the resignation to take effect immedi ately. Therefore, in the period between the time of the resignation and the meet ing of the council this forenoon, Barre was without a health officer. The meeting was called to order at j 10:15 o'clock by Mayor Thurston. Citv ' Attorney E. L. Scott was present and the mayor called upon him to tell of the circumstances leading up to the confer- j ence between the local officials and the state board of health and of the action which transpired at the meeting. The ! city attorney stated that things had ! twine to light Wednesday which prompt- . ed the state board to ask for a confer- i cuee with the mayor, city attorney, ' state's attorney, health officer and others After the hearing at the Pavilion hotel, he said Ir. Jackson tendered bis ' resignation to take effect at once. The names of two physician and a lay man were discussed amonjif others for a successor and at last the conferring of- finals consulted Dr. John H. Woodruff. ' The question of expense arose and the 1 state board officers declared that a phy- j sician should be put into the field and ,' given entire charge of the situation. In order to bring this to pass, the board j recommended that the city pay Dr. Jackson's successor a stipend that would enable him to give his full time to the i epidemic. In some Vermont towns and cities, according, to the board members, j the health officers had been recompensed , at salaries of $100 per week or $10 per day. At this juncture Dr. Woodruff was consulted and he consented to give up , his present practice, accept the office of j health officer and devote his whole time to the suppression of the epidemic for , the sum of $100 per week. It was finally agreed, said Mr. Scott, , that the state board's appointment of Dr. Woodruff would become effective im- ( mediately after the city council should , fix his salary and confirm the selection. , Members of" the state board wished to , .emphasize their desire to make a choice agreeable to the council and citizens of ; Barre. Dr. Woodruffs commission was made out and it was agreed to forward , it to him providing the council confirmed j the appointment. In closing hi report of the proceed- . ings at the conference. City Attorney Scott recommended a-ccpting the sug gestion of the state board and said that ; Dr. WixKlrufl's appointment would In come effective at once. On tne motion j of Alderman Ward, the mayor took an informal vote on the question of coi'fir- ' mixtion and all of the members voted - unanimously in favor of the recommen dations of "the state board. LrttT, Al- , derman Rossi made a motion that the proposition of Dr. Woodruff to serve ;s ; city health officer with full authority at . a salary of $100 be accepted. Alderman , McLeod seconded the motion, which ws -carried unanimously. I'pon the action of the city council , and that of the state lward, the newlr . appointed health officer is to have full authority and the remaining members of the hoard of health are to act in an ad visory capacity. , Dr. Woodruff stated that he desired the co-operation of the council, citizens as well as the lioard of members in the campaign agiinst smail- iii the margin out oeiween me residence : i""1- of the nominee and the designation of hisily after the con fit mat ion bv the council. party, which, according to previous like - instances, has been held by courts as' -,, . ,. , nn .. ; ,. t -.. .
