Abatement of the Epidemic
Epidemic conditions improved so rap-
Idly last week, that the General and Ex
ecutive Committees, after dae consider
ation, at their meeting Monday addressed
the following statement to the pnblic:
BUTLER. PA., JAN. 11. 1904.
It has been deemed expe<tient by the
members of the Genernl Relief Com
mittee and the Executive Committee to
make the following announcement re
lative to the fnnds contributed from all
sources for the benefit of the typhoid
fever sufferers of Butler.
Investigation shows that unless some
onforeeen circumstances arise and about
I which the members of the General Re
j lief and Executive Committees and all
ward committeemen can have no know
ledge of at present and relying entirely
on our experience and judgment derived
after six weeks of constant and careful
attention to the work of relief, there
fore, we are of the opinion that, *ith
the funds now in hand, together with
any other fands contributed up to date,
or the funds which have been con
tributed, but which have not yet been
received by the Treasurer, T. J. Shuf
flin, we will have a sufficient amount of
money to pay all debts thus far con
tracted or which will be contracted pro
viding the same system of work is
carried on and providing no nnforseen
contingencies arise and of which we
have no positive knowledge
We, therefore, desire to announce to
the public generally and more especial
ly to those sources from which we have
received contributions.that in our judg
ment we will be able to meet all in
curred or to be incurred obligations as
before referred to providing the money
thns far solicited or subscribed is
promptly forwarded to the treasurer,
and we request that from this day no
further monies be solicited for or sub
scribed for the relief of the typhoid suf
ferers of Butler.
In making this statement to the
pnblic we do it as a result of a careful
and thorough investigation of the con
ditions as they now appear to us and
trust our conclusions will be fully war
ranted by the results.
We are united in the opinion that the
crisis in the epidemic is passed, basing
our judgment on the reports made by
the chairmen of the ward committees,
supplemented by statements from the
State Board of Health.
We wish, therefore, to accompasy
this announcement with an expression
of our heartfelt gratitude to an ever
generous and loving public for the
liberal and spontaneous response to the
cell for aid and to assure each and all
who contributed to the fund of the very
deep appreciation on the part of all
those who bsve received and will re
ceive assistance as a result of such
Altogether about $55,000 has been re
ceived by the Treasurer, about $40,000
expended, leaving about $15,000 on
bands, and thongh four new cases were
reported Monday, and t wo Tuesday, the
old ones are convalescing so rapidly
that the Committees considered the
above action advisable.
