(The State, 29th.)
Upon his return to the city yester
day Gov. McSweenoy gave the press
the following in regard to the Union
small pox situatiorr:
"In regard to the action of the
Union board of health, I deem it
proper to make a statement in order
to keep the record straight. Since I
have been Governor I have made it a
rule to refor to each department of
the State government all matters per
taining to that department. All cases
of smallpox reported to me have been
promptly referred to Dr. James Evan,j
as secretary of the State Board of
Health for his consideration and nc.
tion. When I received the report of
the Union board of health calling my
attention to the circular of President
Duncan and the resolutions p)assed
by the Union board of health stat
ing that enforcement of vaccination
by the local board of health is im
possible because of lack of power and
funds atrid dangerous because of the
inflamed opposition, I sent the followv
ing telegram to Dr. Evans:
" 'There is considerable dissatisfac
tion in Union as to the manner of en
forcing vaccination. In order to ad.
just matters I deem it advisable for
you to go there at once and take the
matter up with President Du2can and
the local board of health. This is
"I also wired I'nesident D)uncan
and Dr. Linder that I had asked Dr.
Evans to go to Union to investigate
the situation. Tfhis wvas on theodth
of May. Dr. Evaiis went to Union
promptly and on the 11th of May
made the following report:
" 'In my investigation of the small
pox situation at this place (Union) I
have found three families infected
with, the disease in Mill Town, which
has a populatioin of about 8,000 and
is the locality in which the operatives
of the Union cotton mills reside. ]
Vaccination is imperative to prevent
the furthe3r spread of the disease. Two t
thousand of the population of tho
town have been ,recontly and in the
last two or three years vaccinated. I
have arranged for the prompt vacci
nation of the remainder who are not
protected. I have the assurance in
the prosecution 'of the work of the co
operation and assistance of the city
authorities, the local board of health
and President Duncan of the Union
"I concluded from this statement of
the secretary of the board of health
that everything had bovn sa( isfactorily
adjusted, as he stated that he had the
assurance of the co-operation of the
city anthorities and President Dun
can. Nothing moro was heard from
Union until the resolutions published
a few days ago in the Union papers
from the local board of health ton(ler
ing their resignation. As the peo
ple soemed to be very much inflamed
over the matter of onforced vaccina
tion as stated by the lacal board
thomselves, I deemed the course I
pursued wiser and better than to have
ordered the arrest of those who resist
ed the board, for by such a course,
instead of getting the matter settled
satisfactorily, the trouble would have
been increased and possibly some one
killed. If the statement made by
the secretary of the State Board of
Health that he bad the assurance of
the co-operation of the Union board
was not correct it seems to me they
should have so stated at once, becauso
Dr. Evans' report to that effect was
published the next day after it was
made to me.
"As to the statement contained in
ihe resolutions of the Union board
that [ am more interested in my elec
tion than the enforcement of larw, I
have no further reply to make th'an
that contained in the facts of the
case as herein stated."
