Quarantine Is Being Kept by the
Police Health Authorities Order
All Public Halls Closed Plans for
a Feat-Houso Have Been Prepared.
Select Council Provides for Freo
Vaccinailon in This City.
Two more cases of smallpox devel
oped In this city yesterday but thoy
brolto out fortunately In the Meurs'
halt building on North Main nvemio
near Seranton street which was placed
under qtinriintliio Wednesday night
when tho two children of W. .1. Brace
were taken III with the disease.
Officers were kept on guard all day
yesterday at the Meals' hall building
and ut the Rraco homo on North
Bromley avenue where the deaths of
George L. Lewis and Mrp. W. J. Bruce
occurred on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The second and third lloors only, of
the Moms' building are quarantined.
The health authorities are limiting an
earnest effort to secure tho names and
addresses of all the persons who visit
ed the Brace household during tho
sickness of Lewis and if they are run
down their homes will be placed under
quarantine until It Is seen whether
they developo smallpox or not.
The West Seranton victims are Mrs.
Charles Parry, her daughter Emma,
and two young children of the late
Mrs. William J. Brace, who was a
daughter of Mrs. Parry, and slstor-ln-law
of George James Luwls, who died
on Tuesday. The new cases developed
arc the outcome of the Lewis death
on North Bromley avenue, where the
Brace children were originally confined
and whore Mrs. Parry was earing for
PltONOL'NCED IT MEASLES.
Dr. Reynolds was called to attend
tho Brace children in the Mere' build
ing, nnd pronounced their ailment as
that of measles, but Dr. Paine, who
was called in the Lewis case after
death by the health ofTlcer, diagnosed
the disease as smallpox, and reported
II as such to Dr. Allen, superintendent
of the bureau of health.
Dr. Paine also reported the four
cases in the Parry family as small
pox, and the premises were accoidlngly
placarded with a smallpox sign yes
terday. Patrolmen were on guard all
day yesterday, and no one was allowed
to enter the building. When the in
mates wanted anything they gave a
signal from within, and the patrolman
on guard supplied them.
The West Seranton office of The
Truth, which is in the front of the
second floor of the building, was closed
and temporary quarters .opened up on
Seranton street. All dances scheduled
for Mears' hall have been cancelled un
til the siege la over.
The bureau of health will take charge
of the cases, and assign a physician
to look after the victims. Mrs. Ann
Thomas, of Hampton street, who has
hud tha dreaded disease, has been
placed in charge of Mrs. Parry and the
three children. She is a capable nurse.
Tho Brace house on North Bromley
avenue has also been quarantined, nnd
patrolmen kept all persons away
from the premises yesterday. Special
Health Ofiieer Thomas V. Lewis shot
and killed a dog yesterday, which be
longed to the Brace family, and thor
oughly disinfected the house.
The occupants of the house are Will
iam J. Brace, whose wife died there
Wednesday, and Mrs, George 'James
Lewis, whose husband died the day
Every precaution is being taken to
prevent the spread of tho disease, and
as a result of the West Seranton cases
hundreds of people in that part of tho
city were vaccinated yesterday.
Superintendent Allen, of the bureau
of health, said yesterday that It was
absolutely impossible to make any pre
diction as to whether the disease will
spread. Tho fact that the attending
physician did not realize that his pa
tients were suffering from smallpox
and that as a consequence no precau
tions against a spread of the disease
were taken until Wednesday night Is
what is giving the health authorities
After a consultation with Superinten
dent Allen yesterday morning, Director
of Public Safety Wormser issued the
following order prohibiting balls and
