Many Pass Muster
The family of Congressman Geerge
X. KdinemK which lives In the Tou Teu
lainc, passed muster, nnd did net hne
te undergo vncclnntlen again. The Con
gressman nnd Mis. Kdmends waited
until the quarantine had been lifted,
then hurried out te attend te some
belated Christmas affairs.
Clinrlcs J. Cehen, high In the coun
sels of the Chamber of Commerce, nlse
passed muster, nnd wns net held tin for
'ry long. State Senater Samuel W.
Salus and Mrs. Snlus, also residents
in the Touraine, were nlse held up for
a short time. Neither bad te be vac
cinated, however, and off they .bur
lied, ns seen ns the qunrautine hud
bcen lifted.
Tli" entire household of Themas
Itldgwny, 1.VJ."i l'lne street, were vne-
mated. Dr. S. W. Moerhend, 1JW5
Vine street, and J. C. Vnnllern. IMS
1'lrie stieet, were only slightly inoon ineon inoen
tcnlenccd by the quumutlnc s it wns
litled early enough te permit them te

,At 7 o'clock a corps of forty physi
cians urrlved in the quarantined area
and under supervision of Dr. Andrew
Cairns, medical inspector of the llii
remi of Health, began ucelnnting cery
man, woman and cliMil who hnd net nl
leady lieeu vaccinated. Neaity lOllt)
persons loslde in the square. Dr. Cairns
estimated tluu fully 1000 of that num
ber had never been incclniitcd.
Disease in Virulent Ferm
The man responsible for the quaran
tine is Jehn Pinckney, a Negro, of JU0
Seuth I licks street, who lias been in the
employ of Jehn T. Pens, a contractor.
Aeieidhig te Dr. Calms, Pinckney has
been mi fieri nj; fiem a most virulent
form of smallpox since December M,
and the fact that his case was se lute
in being discovered makes the situation
nn tne mere dangerous.
"However," Mild Dr. Cairn, "we
can assure the people of Philadelphia
that there will lie no epidemic. Fer
the last twenty-live years we have been
lighting this disease, and in Unit time
there has never been a real epidemic lu
the city.
"We de net propose te allow any-,
thing of the sort te happen new. We
JUll therefore see te It that no one
iving In the quarantined areu leuves
it until vaccinated."
Dr. CalrtiH said Plnckuey's case Is
directly tiaceable te" a Negro workman
who came recently te Philadelphia from
southern State. That werkiunn took
a. room In West Philadelphia mid
developed symptoms of smallpox. While
In that condition lie is said te have
visited Pinckney and communicated the
contagion along te him, In the same
hoiiHe with Pinckney live several of his
relatives. All of these have been rc rc
need te n hospital for observation,

A meeting wns called for the pur

but before it get under wny W. Clur
enee Dcvee, u real estate dealer, inter
rupted the proceedings with a notice
that took all the spirit out of the

Mr. Dcvee handed the following no
tice te Charles Wngncr, sccretnry of
the club.
"This will sene te notify you that
Annie P. Cenalinn, of tills place, has
purchased the premises where you are
holding this meeting and Is desirous of
possession of I lie same at the cenclu
sien or tlie present meeting.
A unanimous gasp went throughout
the hall when the notice had ben read.
Murmurs of indignation quickly fol
lowed. Many of these present said It was
the purpose of tint purchaser te turn
the community center building into
saloon, as she had made npplicntlen
for ii license in tlie Media court.
As another resident had also mnde
application, a resolution was quickly
adopted embracing both cases.
The resolution follews: "It is the
sense of this club that It stand unalter
ably opposed te grunting licenses for
two saloons nt Drexel Hill."
Committee te Fight Move
The resolution was presented by Mr.
Wagner. Plans, for sending a delega
