A dispatch from "Washington conveys the
information that Surgeon General Hamil
ton, of the United States Marine Hospital
Bureau, and Health Officer Porter, of
Florida, express the opinion that Florida
and probably the entire southern coast will
this year escape the yellow fever.
After the great epidemic last year there
was general fear, both among the residents
of Florida and other parts of the country,
that the peninsula would be again scourged
this year. Surprise has been frequently ex
pressed in the Xorth because the fever has
not reappeared. Light was thrown on the
matter yesterdav by information given to
The Dispatch by Dr. Paul M. Carring
ton, the surgeon oi the Marine Hospital
Service located in this city.
"I believe," he said, "that the yellow
fever has been kept out ot Florida by the
measures taken and the vigilance exercised
by the United States Marine Hospital ser
vice with the co-operation of the local au
thorities. The Marine Hospital service
took charge last year of the relief measures
in Florida, but not much could be done
until after the epidemic was over. My in
iormation is derived chiefly from the reports
sent to me from "Washington. Health
Officer Porter, referred to in the "Washing
ton dispatches, was formerly Assistant Sur
geon General in the army, with the rank of
captain. He resigned and volunteered for
work in Florida.
HOW THET WOBKED,
"He was placed in charge in Jacksonville,
and did splendid service. During the
prevalence of the fever the officers, after a
yellow fever patient had recovered or died
in a house, stamped all the bedding, cur
tains, etc., with the words 'yellow fever.'
If the bedding were unfitted for another
patient it was at once burned. If it were
good it was burned after the epidemic was
ended, in December. .
"It was after the plague had died out or
was extinguished by cold weather, that the
JIanne Hospital service officials did the
work which has prevented a recurrence ol
the fever this year. In Jacksonville and
the other towns where the fever raged,
every house was inspected. All houses
where there had been a case of fever were
thoroughly fumigated with sulphur and
washed down with bi-chloride of mercury.
From 70 to 200 houses were disinfected
daily for a period of ten weeks, when the
work in Jacksonville was completed. It
was a large task, but Mr. Porter an able
corps of assistants. In aid of the Federal
work the city authorities of Jacksonville
drained a large section of low and marshy
land about that city.
IT COSIES FBOM CUBA.
"Yellow fever is brought into Florida
from Cnba and other Southern countries.
If men or goods can be kept out of this coun
try from infected districts there will be no
yellow fever here. To do this the Marine
Hospital Service has directed its attention
during this year. The work has been diffi
cult, but it has been well done. Florida
has a long seacoast and there are many
ports to watch. The bureau has a medical
officer stationed regularly at Havana. There
is always more or less yellow fever in Cuba.
The officer is connected with the United
States Consulate at Havana, and persons or
goods which come from infected districts
and desire to go to United States posts, can
not secure a clean bill ot health unless the
officer agrees to it.
"At every Florida port the Marine Hos
pital Service has kept a medical officer or
an acting assistant surgeon. Besides that,
there is a large staff of sanitary inspectors,
-who are medical men. The work of the
"bureau duriuj this summer has been prin
cipally to keep a close watch. "Whenever a
suspicious case which looks like vellow
fever is reported, an inspector has been sent
to investigate. 2tfo genuine case has been
found anywhere in the State during 1889.
It was rumored last July that yellow fever
had appeared at Tampico, Mexico. The
United States service even went so far as to
send to that place an acting assistan. sur
geon, who reported that the rnmor was
THE DANGEEOUS SSIUGGLEES.
"Although the care exercised has kept
out the lever this year, Florida is still
menaced with danger. The source is
through the smugglers who ply between
Cuba and Florida. The peninsular coast is
sinuous, indented by innumerable bays and
inlets. The vessels used by the smugglers
are of light draft, and can slip into the shal
low bayous where a revenue cutter could
not begin to get near the shore. The coast
guard is insuffi ent to prevent smuggling.
Last month ex-Mayor Cobb, of Pensacola,
wrote to Surgeon General Hamilton on this
head. His letter was transmitted to the
various agents of the bureau. He asserts
that there is practically no protection
against smugglers, the Government having
only one "tub," as he calls it, to protect the
Ion? coast of Florida. He says there are a
thousand and one smugglers plying be
tween Cuba and our shores mil tin. t,.
could be canght daily if there were suffi
cient coast guards and armed vessels. That
matter has, however.nothing to do with the
Marine Hospital Bureau. It is within the
work of the Treasury Department, but
under another bureau. The Marine Hospi
tal Service is doing all it can, and its work
is apparent in the clean reports which come
from the Alligator State."

greater latitude in the manufacture of Soys' Clothing to
exercise one's taste, skill and ingenuity. The very diversity
of the styles makes this possible. And these continuous
efforts of the designer and maker to produce something
nicer and, better than! before are heartily indorsed by the
