Hartford, April 8. The house at 11
o'clock this morning took, up the dis
cussion of the repeal of tthe compulsory
vaccination law, which was reported
unf aAorably by the committee on
health and safety yesterday.
Dr Pratt of East Hartford spoke in
favor of the ; report of . the committee
rejecting the appeal. Mr Cross of Wa-
terbury launcned into some personal
remarKs . at the expense of . tne last
speaker and ; the chairman sharply
called Mr Cross to order. Mr Cross at
tacked the methods of the county
health officers in compelling vaccina
tion in factories. , He read a.number of
cases of death from lockjaw.-which he
said were caused by vaccination. "I
want to attack the infallibility of the
committee that reports the rejection of
this bill. One of that committee had
the manhood to stand up here and say
he was against compulsory vaccina
tion," Mr Griswold of Guilford said there
was a strong public sentiment againsj:

the veto of the resolution:
" "That all acts passed should be for
the welfare of the people affected with

members to the house . of representa

- "That Nor walk is now the eighth
town of the state, having a population
of 20,000, and that under the act it
would be about the twentieth.
"That the proposed act provides two
town official boards, all of whose duties
can be performed as well, and With
greater economy, by one board.
"That the almshouse and town farm
are sufficient far the present town.
"That the proposed division of
moneys collected from past due taxes
seems inequitable. .
"The proposed, boundary line is it
regular and indefinite.
"It locates within the proposed town
of South Norwalk -a, large amount of
property that should naturally remain
in the old town.
