Full text of "Annual report of the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

General Report. 



To His Excellency Edward C. Stokes, Governor of New Jersey: 

Sir — For the purpose of eliminating repetitions in the published 
reports of local boards of health, and to condense as much as pos- 
sible the material which is presented, some modifications have been 
introduced in the form of the twenty-ninth annual report of this 
board. The names of members, officers and employes of local 
boards of health have been grouped in one table, and the statements 
forwarded by local boards are presented only when matters of gen- 
eral interest are received, and by this arrangement it is believed 
that the number of pages in this report can be considerably reduced. 
The work of the board during the year just closed has been con- 
ducted along the same general lines which have been followed 
during several years past, but especial attention has been given to 
the protection of the food-supply, particularly concerning milk, 
shellfish and meat The three assistant inspectors of food devoted 
almost their entire time, from June 1st to September 15th, to the 
collection of samples of milk, and the analysis of these samples and 
giving evidence in suits instituted for the penalty in cases where 
the milk was found to be adulterated has occupied nearly all of the 
time of the analysts employed in the State laboratory of hygiene. 
During the year, 1,493 samples of milk and cream were sent to th6 
laboratory by the State inspectors, and 366 samples, or 24 per 
cent, were found to be adulterated, either by skimming and the 
addition of water or by the addition of preserv^atives. A full state- 
ment relating to the action taken in each case where the milk was 
found to be sold in violation of the law will be found in the body 
of this report. The investigations of outbreaks of infectious dis- 
eases, inspection of creameries and dairies, inquiries concerning 
nuisances, prevention of the spread of infectious diseases of ani- 
mals, prevention of the sale of contaminated milk, supervision of 
the State laboratory of hygiene, and the detection of the sale of

adulterated food and drugs have been continued, and the work has 
extended to every county in the State. 

It will be observed, by reference to the mortality tables which 
are published in this volume, that the number of deaths among 
infants increased slightly during the year, notwithstanding the fact 
that the summer was comparatively cool, and this is believed to 
indicate that the boldness and cupidity of certain unscrupulous 
milk dealers has led them to return, in some degree, to the vicious 
practices to which they were accustomed previous to the crusade 
against impure milk which b^an in 1893, and which resulted in 
the immediate reduction of the mortality among infants in this 
State. Every milk dealer who has been caught violating the law 
has been prosecuted, except in a few cases where the evidence has 
been insufficient to secure convictions, but the legal procedure pro- 
vided for is so hedged about with difficulties in securing convictions 
that many guilty peirsons have escaped, and additional legislation, 
is required which will remove the obstacles which are now being 
continuously and successfully employed to prevent the imposition 
of penalties in cases where it is clearly shown that the milk has 
been adulterated. 

The inspections of the sources of public water-supplies have 
resulted in the removal of numerous pollutions. Details of this 
work appear in this report An additional enactment to more 
effectually prohibit swimming and bathing in streams from which 
waters for public supplies are taken is required to prevent these 
practices. 

We desire to call attention to the very great advantage which we 
believe would attend the enactment of a law authorizing local 
boards of health to be represented annually in a conference con- 
cerning the practical application of the acts of the Legislature and 
the local ordinances which are designed to promote the public 
health. • At present there is but little similarity in the measures 
which are employed by local sanitary officials in their procedures 
for preventing the spread of disease, and it not infrequently hap- 
pens that in adjoining districts one of the local boards will adopt 
advanced and efficient methods in dealing with the problems which 
arise, while the other may be wasting its opportunities in aimless 
and useless efforts. To bring together the active and leading official 
sanitarians of the State, in order that there may be comparison of

views, and to establish cordial co-operation in the adoption of the 
most approved and enlightened measures for the protAstion of the 
public health, is, in the present stage of sanitary progress, ex- 
tremely desirable. 

The changes which have been introduced in the classification of 
deaths, and in the indexing of the certificates of births, marriages 
and deaths, have rendered the facts contained in these records much 
more readily accessible, and have effected a very considerable sav- 
ing of time in making searches.

8 EEPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

Births. — A slight improvement has occurred in the proportion 
of births reported during the past year, compared with the number 
reported during previous years, but the same degree of accuracy 
which has been reached in obtaining reports of marriages and 
deaths has not yet been accomplished in the collection of certifi- 
cates of births. As stated in previous reports, the principal reli- 
ance in New Jersey for a satisfactory solution of this long-standing 
difficulty is in the change which is at present gradually occurring 
in the personnel of the local officers who have charge of the collec- 
tion and transmission of certificates of births, marriages and 
deaths. Doubtless several years will elapse before all of the sani- 
tary districts of the State will be provided with a qualified officer, 
but when that most desirable change shall be effected there will 
unquastionably be closer watch of delinquent physicians and mid- 
wives, and while it is improbable that the records of births will 
ever, under the American form of government, be so exact and 
complete as those in countries where police super\^ision is exercised 
in relation to every individual, whether resident or transient, we 
jnay expect far better results than those thus far prevailing. 

Local registrars of vital statistics can detect a certain proportion 
of failures to report births if they will refer to the records in all 
cases where deaths occur in young children, say under one year of 
age, for if no certificate of birth has been filed, the responsibility 
for the neglect can be placed where it belongs. Systematic com- 
parison of the records of deaths and births will soon indicate the 
physicians and midwives who frequently neglect to report births, 
and if appropriate measures are then adopted by the local board of 
health the enforcement of the law can be secured. If, after warn- 
ing, the parties who fail to forward certificates of births continue 
to violate the law they should be prosecuted. If the registrar finds 
that the local board of health is unwilling to enforce the law, he 
should send a statement of the facts to the State board of health, 
and the matter will be placed in the hands of the State law depart- 
ment for such action as the statute provides.

* Estimated except for cersus years. 

NoTx.~Thd reports of births are not as complete as are those for marriages and deaths hence 
the above table does not represent with accuracy the relation between birth-rates and death- 
rates. 

NoTB.~The large number of marriages reported during the years 1886-1897 was due to the 
unrestricted authority contained in the laws for the performance of the marriage ceremony in 
the case of non-residents, and the marked decrease in the number of marriages which occurred 
in 1898 was directly consequent upon the enactment of the law requiring a license in cases 
where botli parties are non-residents of the State.

EEPORT OF THE BOAED OF HEALTH. 



Marriages. — The number of marriages in New Jersey per 1,000 
inhabitants has shown continued increase during the six years 
1898-1903, but for the year 1904 the number was not quite so 
large as for the next preceding year. The difference is very slight, 
however, and it is doubtless merely the variation which may be 
expected when comparison with the normal average marriage-rate 
in other prosperous communities is considered. The following 
table shows the number of marriages and the number of individ- 
uals married per 1,000 inhabitants in New Jersey for twenty-six 
years:

SECRETARY'S REPORT,

Deaths. — During the year ending December 31st, 1904, the total' 
number of deaths which occurred in New Jersey was 35,298. The 
estimated population for the State is 2,058,909, and the death-rate 
per 1,000 inhabitants is therefore 17.14. These figures exceed 
those which have been recorded for the past seven years, and they 
are f oimd, by reference to the following table, to be mainly due to 
the increased mortality which has been caused by diarrhoeal dis- 
eases of ehildrem. Refereaioe to Table 9 will show that deaths from 
nearly all of the preventable diseases have increased when com- 
pared with the numbers for the preceding year.

*The death-rate in summer resorts is calculated on the basis of the resident population, 
whereas the actual population is often several times larger, and on account of this floating 
population and the large number of invalids included in it, the death-rate is not a criterion of 
nealth conditions.

*The death-rate in summer resorts is calculated on the basis of the resident population, 
whereas the actual population is often several times larger, and on account of this floating 
population and the large number of invalids included in it, the death-rate is not a criterion (^

Consumption. — ^During the year ending December 31st, 1904, 
the deaths registered in New Jersey as having been caused by pul- 
mxxnary tubercfulosis numbered 3,670. This number is somewhat 
in, excess of the deaths from, this affection which occurred during the 
three preceding years, the proportioil of deaths per 10,000 inhabit- 
ants having been as follows: 1901, 16.91; 1902, 15.32; 1903, 
16.76 ; 1904, 17.83. Reference to the chart on page 22 will show 
that the improvement in the death-rate from consumption has been 
but slightly interrupted "since 1887, and it appears to be probable

Pneumonia. — This disease caused 3,486 deaths, this number 
being 858 in excess of the deaths recorded from this affection dur- 
ing the preceding year, and being 9.88 per cent, of the total mor- 
tality. This increase in the fatality of pneumonia during the 
calendar year 1904 was not limited to New Jersey, but prevailed 
generally throughout the Central and Eastern States. Pneumonia

wafi not separately classified in the records of this bureau until 
1901, and therefore its prevalence in I^ew Jersey previous to that 
date cannot be stated. During the past four years the deaths 
certified as having been due to pneumonia have been as fol- 
lows: 1901, 2,539, or 8.17 per cent, of the total deaths from all 
causes; 1902, 2,412, or 7.33 per cent.; 1903; 2,628, or 8.26 per 
cent. ; 1904, 3,486, or 9.88 per cent. These figures show the im- 
portant position which pneumonia holds as a cause of death, and' 
during recent years much attention has been given by sanitarians 
to questions relating to the avenues by which the infectious organ- 
isms gain access to the mucous surfaces. These organisms are so 
generally contained in the mouths of persons in health that they 
seem to be always ready to enter the lungs and set up their specific 
series of phenomena whenever the vitality of the host is for any 
reason enfeebled. Very little has thus far been accomplished in 
the way of preventing this disease, but the facts at present avail- 
able indicate that thorough and frequent cleansing of the mouth is 
an extremely important sanitary measure, and that it may act as a 
prophylactic not only against pneumonia, but also against various 
other infections which gain entrance into the tissue through the 
tonsils or other neighboring mucous surfaces. The sputum of 
patients who are affected with pneumonia is loaded with patho- 
genic bacteria, and the same care should be exercised to prevent its 
drying and to cause it to be promptly destroyed that is appropriate 
in dealing with the sputum of persons suffering from pulmonary 
tuberculosis. Infected apartments should be purified after the 
removal of the patient.

Infant Mortality. — The average number of deaths in New Jer- 
sey among children under five years of age, per 10,000 inhabitants, 
during the fifteen years 1879-1893, was 72.71, but during the 
eleven years 1894-1904 the average yearly deaths among this group 
was only 51.42 per 10,000 living. The number of deaths under 
five years for the year ending December 31st, 1904, from all causes, 
was 10,913, or 8.62 more per 10,000 inhabitants -than during the 
previous year. Numerous opinions have been advanced to account 
for this increase, and examination of the accompanying table shows 
that measles, diphtheria and scarlet fever have each caused a larger 
proportion of deaths than during the preceding year, but it is found 
that the principal increase has been due to diarrhoeal diseases, there 
having been 3.82 more deaths from this cause, per 10,000 inhabit- 
ants, than during the previous year, and this fact is suggestive in 
view of the records of the State laboratory of hygiene, which show 
an increase in the use of preservatives in the samples of milk col- 
lected during the summer of 1905, compared with the previous 
year. This violation of the law is probably due to the short 
supply of milk, owing to the dry weather, and the consequent ship- 
ment of milk from more distant points than usual for sale during 
the hot months. The laboratory records also show that the adulter- 
ation of milk with water was more common during the past sum- 
mer than it has been for several years previously, notwithstanding 
the prosecutions for the penalty ($50) which are instituted in all 
cases where the evidence is sufficient to secure a conviction. Per- 
haps there has been some relaxation on the part of mothers and 
nurses in the care and preparation of the milk, and perhaps more 
reliance than was warranted has been placed by consumers upon 
the claims of milk dealers that their product is clean. The inspec-

tion of dairieB, creameriee and milk shops by the inspeofcors of this 
board during the past season has shown that a proper oomprehen'- 
sion of the responsibilities which attach to the collection, handling 
and distribution of milk has thus far reached but a small number 
of the persons who are engaged in the milk business, aad educa- 
tional progress relating to the dangers which attend the feeding of 
infants upon unclean milk has made much greater advances among 
physicians, mothers and nurses than it has among milk producers 
and dealers. Elsewhere in this report the number of prosecutions 
instituted for the sale of adulterated milk during the months of 
June, July, August and September, 1905, is shown to be 127, and 
the employes of the food department of the State devoted almost 
all their time during that period to the detection of the sale of 
milk to which preservatives or water had been added, or which was 
collected, handled or stored under unclean conditions. This work 
will be continued next season.

Cancer. — The number of deaths in New Jersey for the year end- 
ing December 31st, 1904, from cancer was 1,125, or 5.46 per 
10,000 inhabitants. No new facts have been contributed during 
the year to more fully explain the increasing prevalence of this 
disease, but observations are still being diligently prosecuted, and 
it is reasonable to believe that the cause of this affection and the 
mode by which it is acquired will not much longer elude the unre- 
mitting search which is being made in many laboratories. The 
following tables show the progress of this disease as a cause of 
death in New Jersey for twenty-six years :

Diphtheria. — The number of deaths caused by diphtheria was 
918, or 4.46 per 10,000 inhabitants. This is an increase of 170 
deaths, compared with the previous year, but reference to the ac- 
companying chart will show that the death-rate from this disease 
is low in comparison with the loss of life which it occasioned before 
the use of antitoxin was introduced. Antitoxin should be admin- 
istered in every case of doubtful sore throat, and the beginning 
dose should not be less than 3,000 units. Delay in the admini&tra- 
tion of this remedy is unwarranted, and the doses should be 
repeated every eight hours if necessary. For severe cases larger 
doses are required than for mild cases. The health officer's duty 
upon receiving 'notice of a case of diphtheria is to secure the isola- 
tion of the patient, and to continue the isolation until two negative 
cultures show that the throat and nose are free from diphtheria 
bacilli. In some individuals virulent diphtheria bacilli remain in 
the throat for long periods after all signs of illness have disap- 
peared, and some modification of the general rule seems to be essen- 
tial in dealing mth cases of this character. If the patient is an 
adult, and can be trusted, he may be informed of the modes by 
which the disease is transmitted and be given his liberty, but chil- 
dren and persons who are liable to disregard the safety of others 
should be held until the bacilli disappear or become non-virulent. 
Cultures taten from other members of the family frequently show 
the presence of the bacilli, and doubtless the disease is often spread 
by persons who are not sick.

Typhoid Fever.— This disease caused 384 deaths, or 1.87 per 
10,000 inhabitants. These figures are well within the limits of 
the average number of deaths from typhoid fever in New Jersey 
during the past ten years, as the following tables show. Some 
additional faxits have recently been brought to notice indicating 
that the spread of typhoid fever is probably sometimes due to 
infected dust, and evidence has also been offered to show that con-

tact of the hands with infected articles is often the avenue by which 
the typhoid bacillus reaches the mouth. The diminution in the 
number of deaths in this State from typhoid fever has now been 
steadily maintained for eleven years, and unquestionably this fact 
is due to a more general knowledge of the means w^hich can be suc- 
cessfully employed to destroy the infectious agent, but sanitary 
officials, especially in rural districts, are slow in reaching a realiz- 
ing sense of their responsibility for the existence of many smolder- 
ing foci of infection, and in almost every community flies are 
transporting, on their feet and legs, excreta from exposed masses 
of filth and depositing it upon articles of food; wells and other 
sources of domestic water-supply are receiving waste liquids ; the 
milk-supply is received without investigation into the degree of 
cleanliness with which it is collected and handled; there is disre- 
gard of sources from which clams and oysters are obtained ; there is 
oareleeaneBS in' preventing oontaminationi of those vegetables and 
fruits which are usually eaten without cooking, and in some locali- 
ties there is gross neglect of disinfection of typhoid discharges. 
New Jersey is fortunate in having an exceptionally large proper* 
tioni of her citizens already provided with drinking water from 
public supplies, for water from such sources can be depended upon 
to be much safer for drinking purposes than that from door-yard 
wells, and the monthly examinations which, are now being made in 
the State laboratory of hygiene of the water of many of the public 
supplies of the State gives warning of dangerous pollutions. To 
prevent excremental contamination of food and water is service 
which is expected of sanitary officials, and the procedures to this 
end will vary under different circumstances, but they should in- 
clude measures to prevent access of insects and animals to human 
excreta; to prevent the use of water from polluted sources; to 
secure screening of doors and windows of dwellings; to secure 
destruction of flies, and to exercise supervision over the food-supply. 
It should be reonJembered that the source of infection is the patient, 
and that if all dischargee from the bowels and bladder were prop- 
erlj treated the disease would soon disappear. Clothing, bedding, 
caa-pets and other articles remain infected for long periods, and 
piurifieatioin of infected dwellings and their contents is essential 
to prevent the spread of the disease. Concerning the relation of 
oysters to typhoid fever, an English observer says: 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



34 KEPORT OF THE BOAED OF HEALTH. 

''Oysters readily take into their interior the bacillus typhosus which has 
been introduced into their shell or into the surrounding sea water. Oysters 
clean at starting rapidly clear themselves of the ingested typhoid bacilli 
if they are kept in clean water which is frequeiitly changed. Oysters clean 
at starting clear themselves of the ingested bacilli to a less extent and 
slower if they are kept in a 'dry' state, i. e., out of the sea water. Oysters 
from a polluted locality clear themselves of the ingested bacilli to a less 
extent and at a slower rate, even if kept in sea water, than oysters clean 
at starting. Oysters from a polluted locality retain the ingested typhoid 
bacilli to a markedly larger extent if kept 'dry,' t. e., outside of the water. 
The process of 'clearing themselves* of the ingested typhoid bacilli cannot 
be owing to the oyster merely 'passing out' these bacilli, but must be due 
to a large extent to an inherent power of the oyster of directly devitalizing 
the microbe. Experiments with the 'dry' oysters prove this, and it is also 
evident from the rapid rate at which this microbe disappears from the 
oysters kept in clean water if compared with the very small number found 
at the same time in the surrounding sea water. Oysters which had been 
affected with typhoid bacilli, and were then kept in a 'dry' state until they 
had practically cleared themselves, when subjected to reinfection with 
the bacilli, appear to be less capable of dealing with them, even if kept in 
clean sea water, than reinfected oysters which have always been kept in 
the water. This is explicable on the obvious supposition that oysters kept 
some days out of the water do not possess the same degree of activity and 
vitality in their tissues as those which have been kept under normal con- 
ditions. Oysters from a polluted locality, containing a large number of 
the bacillus coll, very rapidly clear themselves of this microbe, whether 
kept in or out of the water. This shows that bacillus coll is foreign to 
the oyster and is rapidly destroyed by it. When, therefore, it is present 
in the oyster, it must have been derived from the surroundings. However 
largely infected with typhoid bacilli, the oysters at no time present to the 
eye any sign of such infection; they remain in all parts of normal aspect. 
This is the case not only with all infected oysters kept in sea water, but 
also with infected oysters kept in the 'dry' state. There was only one 
exception — an oyster derived from a polluted locality and which had been 
eleven days out of the water. During the time of the experiments (part 
of September, October and part of November) the oysters lived quite well 
in sterile sea water, frequently changed. There was no noticeable altera- 
tion in their aspect; they remained plump and juicy, and capable of 
promptly and tightly closing their shells. Cockles readily embody typhoid 
bacilli present in sea water. Although the number first appears to 
diminish in the body of the cockle, it soon increases to a considerable 
degree, for five days after cockles have been removed from polluted water 
to clean sand the number of typhoid bacilli in their bodies was threefold 
that originally present. Their subsequent diminution proceeds slowly, 
since a cockle examined ten days after removal from infected water still 
contained in its body 69,000 typhoid bacilli. Mussels also readily embody 
the typhoid bacillus; in fact, analysis seems to show that they do so to a 
greater extent than oysters or cockles. As regards the fate of the typhoid 
bacilli in mussels, these appear to stand between oysters and cockles, since 
in mussels the bacilli undergo gradual diminution, which occurs incom- 
parably slower than in oysters, but somewhat quicker than in cockles."

Following is a report, dated May 16th, 1905, by D. 0. Bowen, 
one of the inspectors of this board, of an epidemic of scarlet fever 
which occurred in Manasquan, Monmouth county, during the past 
winter and spring : 

"In compUance with instructions, I visited Manasquan on the 13th and 
14th of April to investigate a reported outbreak of scarlet fever, and 
learned that said disease had been prevalent in Manasquan since January 
of the present year, and that it was still spreading at the time of said 
visit I called upon a number of families in which, I was informed by Mr. 
Hoskins, scarlet fever had broken out. By aid of the information thus 
obtained, together with facts secured from Robert Marks, secretary of the 
local board of health, the cases shown in the following table were located and 
investigated. The outbreak dates back to December 21st, 1904, when George 
Longstreet, twenty-four years of age, died in Manasquan from scarlet fever. 
The source of his infection was not learned. He had been ill and confined 
to his house for more than six weeks, suffering from a complication of 
diseases; was reported to be suffering with scarlet fever on December 21st, 
and died on the 29th. Mr. Longstreet and his mother occupied a house in 
which no other persons resided, and if the disease spread from the Long- 
street ease the method by which it was communicated was not brought out 
during my investigation. The next cases to occur were among children 
attending the third grade in the Manasquan public school. Ten cases in 
as many families appeared from January 11th to the 15th. One of the 
pupils in this room left school on account of illness on January 10th; three 
on the 11th; three on the 12th, and three on the 13th. The 14th was Sat- 
urday, and the schools remained closed on account of this outbreak until 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



SECKETAEY'S KEPORT. 41 

January 21st. This group of cases, occurring as they did at about the 
same time, shows a common source of infection, and as they appeared 
among school children attending the. same classroom, it looks as if the 
infection took place in the school. The children had not all attended the 
same Sunday-school, nor was it shown that they had all assembled in a 
gathering elsewhere during the incubation period of scarlet fever pre- 
ceding the dates of attack. It is true that eight of the ten families were 
supplied with milk by the same milkman, Mr. R. C. Conover, who pur- 
chased his supply from Mr. P. Hulshart's dairy, but no previous scarlet 
fever history was found in looking up this milk-supply. It was shown, 
however, that one of Mr. Hulshart's three children was among the group 
of ten cases which fell ill between January 11th and 15th, and that his 
other two children suffered from scarlet fever on the dairy. farm at a later 
date. The first case in Mr. Hulshart's family, who reside in Wall town- 
ship, had been reported by Dr. Herbert, the attending physician, to Mr. 
Marks, Secretary of the board of health of Manasquan, on January 13th 
and Mr. M&rks had filed this report, together with other reported cases 
received up to the time of my visit on April 13th, failing to make weekly 
reports to the State Board of Health, as required by chapter 260, laws of 
1895. The school remained closed from January 13th to January 23d, and 
no cases were reported from January 15th until March 11th, when reports 
again began to be received by the local board of health, and they were 
still coming in at the time of my visit on January 14th, at which time 
thirty-seven cases had occurred in twenty infected families. The case 
of M. Longstreet and Everitt Lavance occurred in Wall township, 
and were not reported to the board of health of Manasquan, but 
these two children attended the Manasquan school. The Lester Cor- 
win case was verbally reported by the attending physician to the 
secretary of the board of health as measles, and no action was taken 
by the board. I was informed by Mrs. Corwin that the physician saw this 
case but once, and then on the day of attack; that the child was taken ill 
on March: 11th with fever, accompanied by a rash, followed by pealing, and 
that her other son, Harry Corwin, suffered from the same disease, and was 
taken ill March 18th. The father of the two Corwin children is janitor of 
the Manasquan school. The Woodfield case was reported at the time of 
my visit, and I accompanied the secretary of the local board of health to 
the premises^ where we learned that the patient was John Woodfield, age 
thirty years. Mrs. Woodfield informed us that her daughter was taken ill 
on March 28th with fever, accompanied by vomiting and a rash. The child 
was thought by her mother to be suffering from German measles, and no 
physician was called. The child's father was reported ill with scarlet 
fever on April 12th. I visited the Pettet family on April 14th, and Mrs. 
Pettet Informed me that her child was taken ill on April 1st with scar- 
letina. Shortly after my visit to the house the case was reported, for the 
first time, to the local board of health by Dr. A. C. Norris, the attending 
physician, as measles. The column in the following table of cases giving 
the length of quarantine shows that in the first group of ten cases, nine 
occurring in the borough of Manasquan, the duration of quarantine ranged 
from fifteen to forty-five days, averaging twenty-three and four-tenths days, 
and in the two cases which occurred in the township of Wall there is no 
record of quarantine, but the school register shows that one of these cases 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



42 KEPOKT OF THE BOAKD OF HEALTH. 

was back in his class in twenty-nine days from the date of attack. To 
these short periods of isolation of patients may be due the second outbreak. 
In the sixteen cases reported from March 11th to April 14th, twelve were 
supplied with milk by Job M. Francis, two by R. C. Conover, one had his 
own cow and one used no fresh milk. Mr. Francis conducts a dairy in 
Manasquan and retails the milk produced thereon in the borough. There 
were three cases of scarlet fever on the Francis dairy at the time of my 
inspection, April 13th, the facts in this case having already been com- 
municated in a special report. In so far as I could learn, the quarantine 
restrictions imposed by the local board of health on infected premises con- 
sists of a verbal notice to the family at the time a case is reported and in 
placing a card on the infected dwelling, which is removed when the attend- 
ing physician reports to the secretary that the patient has recovered. In 
some cases the local board has employed Mr. Harding, a local undertaker, 
to disinfect infected premises, and in other cases the disinfection has been 
performed by a private party employed by the occupants of the infected 
premises. On May 16th I visited the school in Manasquan and was given 
the. dates from the school register, which appear in columns ten and 
eleven of the following tabulation of cases. In looking over the third 
grade register for information which, might be helpful in locating the 
source of infection, if it occurred in the public school, it was shown that 
there were many absent scholars when school was opened after the Christ- 
mas holidays, and that they kept returning until January 9th. With no 
record of illness in any of the families from which these pupils came, it is 
doubtful that if further inquiry was made at this late date it would be 
successful in locating the. source of infection." 

An order was issued by the State board of health April 13th, 
1905, under authority contained in the act approved April 21st, 
1898, prohibiting the sale of milk which was collected or handled 
on the premises of Job M. Francis, in Manasquan, and arrange- 
ments were then immediately made by Mr. Francis to conduct his 
milk business on adjoining premises, where there was no risk of 
communicating to the milk the infection of scarlet fever from the 
sick children in the family of Mr. Francis.

Jersey during the past eight years, per 10,000 population, has been 
•82, while the average number for the previous eighteen years was 
1.77, Reference to the accompanying chart shows that the mor-

cates that the epidemic outbreaks have been less widespread than 
formerly. The number of deaths for 1904 from this disease was^

KEPOKT OF THE BOAED OF HEALTH. 



M ala r i al Fever. — Forty-seven deaths were recorded as having 
been caused by malarial diseases during the year. Circular 112* 
calls the attention of local health officials to the sources of malarial 
infection, and points out the measures which are effectual for the 
destruction of the anopheles. The following diagram shows the 
decline in the mortality from malarial affections in IsTew Jersey 
during the past twenty-six years :

Small-pox. — Cases of small-pox occurred during the year 1904 
as follows : Atlantic City, 5 ; Bordentown, 1 ; Camden, 31 ; Dela- 
ware township, Camden county, 4 ; Egg Harbor City, 1 ; Franklin 
township, Somerset county, 1 ; Hopewell township, Mercer county,

son, 3 ; Plainfield, 1 ; Swedesboro, 1 ; Tuckerton, 2 ; Treadton, 45 ; 
Willingboro township, Burlington county, 1 ; Woodbine, 1 ; Wood 
Lynne, 4, and Woolwich township, Gloucester county, 1. Twenty- 
four deaths were recorded. These outbreaks were, in each locality, 
due to new importations of the infection, and they show that vac- 
cination and revaccination have not been practiced in New Jersey 
as extensively as the warnings of the past few years demanded. 
N^eglect in securing the protection afforded by vaccination was not 
surprising previous to the widespread prevalence of small-pox in 
1901 and 1902, for the mortality caused by this disease had been 
extremely small for the preceding eighteen years, but after the 
occurrence of 432 deaths from small-pox in 1902, there was reason 
to expect that all well-informed persons would be reminded of the 
risk of contracting the disease to which the unvaccinated are liable 
to be exposed, and that every considerate individual would defend 
himself against this preventable malady. It appears, however, that 
whenever the disease is reintroduced it finds susceptible persons in 
whom it can develop, and notwithstanding the known, preventive 
influence of vaccination, there is found in nearly every community 
more or less indifferent persons who cannot be aroused to a realiza- 
tion of the seriousness of the public nuisance which is produced by 
the appearance of small-pox in a community. Where the indi- 
vidual is unmoved by the personal danger which attends an attack 
of the disease, he might give some attention to the inconvenience 
which his sickness with this infectious ailment causes his neighbolrs, 
and he might be expected to be willing to take the trouble to be 
vaccinated often when by this precaution he can prevent the dam- 
age to business and the excessive expenditures for caring for the 
patient which this disease almost always involves. The vaccination 
of school children was sustained by the Court of Appeals of the 
State of New York in the following opinion : 

"The appellant claims that vaccination does not tend to prevent small- 
pox, but tends to bring about other diseases, and that it does much harm 
with no good. It must be conceded that some laymen, both learned and 
unlearned, and some physicians of great skill and repute, do not believe 
that vaccination is a preventative of small-pox. The common belief, how- 
ever, is that it has a decided tendency to prevent the spread of this fearful 
disease and to render it less dangerous to those who contract it. While 
not accepted by all, it is accepted by the mass of the people as well as by 
most members of the medical profession. It has been general in our State 
and in most civilized nations for generations. It is generally accepted in

theory and generally applied in practice, both by the voluntary action of 
t|ie people and in obedience to the command of law. Nearly every State 
in the Union has statutes to encourage or directly or indirectly to require 
vaccination, and this is true of most nations in Europe. It is required in 
nearly all the armies and navies of the world. Vaccination has been com- 
pulsory in England since 1854, and the last act upon the subject, passed 
in 1898, requires every child bom in England to be vaccinated within six 
months of its birth. It is compulsory, or is aided, encouraged, and to some 
extent compelled, in the ojther ]6:uropean nations. It is compulsory in but 
few States and cities in this country, but it is countenanced or promoted 
in substantially all, and statutes requiring children to be vaccinated in 
order to attend the public schools have generally been sustained by the 
courts. While we do not decide and cannot decide that vaccination is a 
preventative of small-pox, we take judicial notice that this is the common 
belief of the people of the State, and with this fact as a foundation we 
hold that the statute in question is a health law, enacted in a reasonable 
and proper exercise of the police power."

62 EEPORT OF THE BOAED OF HEALTH. 

Notifiable Diseases — The act approved March 31st, 1887 (para- 
graph 3 of section 12), authorizes local boards of health to mak^ 
ordinances to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, and in 
many localities ordinances have been adopted requiring physicians 
to report certain diseases. The act approved March 22d, 1895, 
makes a uniform requirement, extending its provisions to every 
portion of the State and compelling physicians to report the fol- 
lowing diseases: Cholera, yellow fever, typhus fever, leprosy^ 
plague, trichinosis, small-pox, varioloid, enteric (or typhoid) fever^ 
diphtheria, membranous croup, scarlet fever, malaria, tuberculosis 
(in any of its manifestations), trachoma, hydrophobia, glanders, 
anthrax and chicken-pox. The penalty for neglect or refusal to 
report to the local board of health any one of the above-named dis- 
eases is a fine of fifty dollars, and the moneys recovered in any suit 
instituted by a local board of health for the violation of this act 
are paid to the board for any uses for which it may legally expend 
money. If for personal or other reasons the local board is unwill- 
ing to prosecute offenders, the State board of health will begin 
axjtions for the penalty against guilty parties when evidence suffi- 
cient to secure a conviction is furnished. In some instances physi- 
cians have violated the law by failure to make reports, and after- 
ward claimed that the diagnosis was uncertain and that the true 
nature of the disease was not recognized, but this defense cannot 
hold good for many hours in such affections as scarlet fever and 
diphtheria. If the faith-curers, Eddyites, vibrationists, osteopaths, 
&c., do not have the knowledge necessary to diagnose or treat infec- 
tious diseases, they should certainly pay the penalty for their 
ignorance.

SEOKETARY'S REPORT. 55 

Inspectiion of Streams. — ^A detailed statement of the inspections 
made for the purpose of detecting sources of pollution of the public 
water-supplies of the State is presented further on in this report. 
In each case which is discovered the facts relating to the pollution 
are brought to the attention of the responsible party by written 
notice, and if, upon reinspection, it is found that action has not 
been taken for removal of the source of the pollution, the matter is 
referred to the Attomey-Greneral for such proceedings as the law 
provides. During the year suits have been instituted, in the Court 
of Chancery against persons who have continued to maintain 
sources of pollution of public water-supplies after notice has been 
served as follows : 

The State at the relation of the board of health of the State of 
!N'ew Jersey against Gustave Gnauch and Emma Gnauch. 

The State at the relation of the board of health of the State of 
New Jersey against Samuel Card. 

The State at the relation of the board of health of the State of 
New Jersey against Maria Davenport. 

The State at the relation of the board of health of the State of 
New Jersey against John Forgerson. 

The State at the relation of the board of health of the State of 
New Jersey against George Ihnken. 

The State at the relation of the board of health of the State of 
New Jersey against James Leech. 

The State at the relation of the board of health of the State of 
New Jersey against the borough of Vineland. 

The reports of the inspections show that the water-shed of the 
Hackensack river has been almost entirely cleared of sources of 
direct contamination, more than two hundred and fifty-four pollu- 
tions having been located and removed during the past four years. 
The cases of the three parties who have failed to abate the nuis- 
ances found on their premises have been brought to the attention of 
the Chancellor, as above stated. 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



56 KEPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

The Pequannock water-shed is singularly free from contamina- 
tions. Very thorough and painstaking examination of the main 
stream and all of its tributaries, including roadside ditches and 
other possible sources of pollution, has been made, and only five 
points of direct contamination were found. After the service of 
notices upon the persons responsible for these nuisances, three of 
them removed the objectionable conditions, but two took no action, 
and suits in Chancery were begun in these cases. 

The Rahway river has continued to receive increasing quantities 
of polluting material, and the following letter has been transmitted 

to the local authorities of that city : 

June 27th, 1905. 
Mr. Charles H. Lamhert, Secretary Board of Healthy Rahway, N, J.: 

Deab Sib — The opinion stated in your letter of June 16th, 1905, in 
regard to the advisability of first chemically analyzing the water of a 
public supply before reaching a conclusion concerning its potability, is 
correct if no better evidence than analysis is obtainable to show the true 
quality and character of the water, but in the case of the supply which is 
delivered to consumers in Rahway, analysis of the water is altogether 
unnecessary, for chemical analysis is only needed when inspection of the 
sources of supply does not disclose any contamination, and, as the authori- 
ties of your city have already been Informed, frequent inspections of the 
banks of the Rahway river and Its tributaries show that the supply is 
grossly polluted at many points by street gutters and other irremovable 
sources. Under such conditions chemical and bacteriological analysis is 
superfluous. Laboratory analysis is not needed to decide whether a stream 
has been polluted by sewage when we can see the sewage flowing into it, 
and such examinations of the water are useless for the detection of impuri- 
ties which the water contains if the pollution is visible and unmistakable. 

The district through which the Rahway river and its branches flow is 
populated to an extent which renders the water-shed wholly unflt to fur- 
nish drinking water for use in your city, and the degree of pollution is 
Increasing in proportion to the increase in population in the locality 
through which the stream and its tributaries flow. Numerous suits of law 
have been instituted to prevent direct contamination from factories, house 
sewers, &c., and others are now In preparation, but the most rigid enforce- 
ment of the law cannot prevent the discharge into the river of fllthy 
washings from streets and door-yards, and the use of this water for drink- 
ing purposes is unquestionably attended with risk to the health of con- 
sumers. 

As a matter of fact, analyses of the water of the Rahway river have 
been made and the water has been found to be polluted, but this fact is 
of far less value than the observations made by inspections on the banks 
of the stream. 

The cost should not deter the citizens of Rahway from at once proceed- 
ing to secure a new and safe supply of pure and wholesome water for use 
in your city. Very respectfully, 

HENRY MITCHELL, 
Secretary.

SECKETAEY'S tlEPORT. 57 

Laboratory examinations of the water supplied by twenty-two 
towns are now being regularly made, the samples being forwarded 
to the laboratory by persons who have been selected for that service. 
These examinations are supplementary to inspections of the sources 
of supply, and they are designed to furnish information which will 
indicate any changes which may occur in the quality of the water, 
and in this manner assist in detecting new or temporary contamina- 
tions. 

Sanitary Inspection Service. — The report of the examining com- 
mission appointed in accordance with the provisions of the act 
approved April 8th, 1903, shows that three examinations of appli- 
cants for license to serve as health officer and sanitary inspector 
have been held, and that sixty-seven persons took these examina- 
tions. Of this number eighteen were recommended for service as 
health officers, twenty-three to be sanitary inspectors of the first 
class, one to be sanitary inspector of the second class and one of 
the third class. In one case the recommendation was limited to 
house-to-house inspection only, and in one the recommendation was 
for plumbing inspection only. The work thus far accomplished 
under the authority contained in the act above referred to has been 
almost altogether preliminary in character, but the examinations 
have clearly demonstrated the urgent need which exists for the 
establishment of a course of instruction for those who desire to 
engage in the sanitary inspection service. The examinations have 
shown that applicants for license are unable to prepare themselves 
for the complex duties which fall to the lot of sanitary officials by 
reading only, and that observation and practice are essential to fit 
a man to enter upon this calling. With this fact in view the State 
board of health invited several gentlemen to a conference, in the 
State House, Trenton, June 27th, 1905, for the purpose of devising 
a plan whereby practical instruction might be offered to all appli- 
cants for examination who may desire to avail themselves of the 
advantages of such a training before presenting themselves to be 
tested for fitness. The names of those who were invited to the con- 
ference are as follows : Prof. E. H. Loomis, John L. Leal, M.D., 
B. vanD. Hedges, M.D., Mr. R. B. Fitz-Randolph and Mr. 
Francis H. McGee. All of the gentlemen named were present, and 
a temporary organization was effected by the election of Dr. Leal 
to act as chairman and Mr. McGee to act as secretary. The feasi- 
bility of providing instruction in municipal hygiene was discussed.

58 EEPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

but no recommendations were adopted. There was entire agree- 
ment concerning the necessity of special preparation for the exam- 
inations for the sanitary inspection service, but questions of detail 
relating to the establishment of a course of instruction caused delay 
in reaching a conclusion as to advisability of proceeding with the 
work. 

The appointment of two unlicensed employes by the board of 
health of Bridgeton led to the beginning of quo warranto proceed- 
ings by the law department of the State. In compliance with the 
advice of the Bridgeton city attorney, the board rescinded its 
action in making the illegal appointments, and one of the appointees 
subsequently obtained a license in conformity with the reqiiire- 
ments of the law, and was then legally appointed. 

Food and Drugs. — To prevent the sale of unclean and adulter- 
ated milk has been the chief aim of the department of food and 
drugs during the past year. Co-operation with local boards of 
health for the prohibition of the sale of unwholesome milk has been 
continued, and the inspection of dairies and creameries has been 
extended to the limit of the board's facilities. Attention has else- 
where been called in this report to the increase in the mortality 
which occurred in New Jersey during the last statistical year from 
infantile diarrhoea, and it appears probable that this increase has 
been due in part to the backsliding of those having personal charge 
of infants, involving disregard of the injunctions which have in 
recent years been strenuously laid down by physicians and trained 
attendants concerning the preparation of the food, though to some 
extent the increased mortality has doubtless resulted from a return 
to the use of raw milk because of the prevailing opinion that the 
nutritive value of milk is diminished by heating. The popular 
demand for clean milk has been active, and every dealer is ready 
to give assurances that he sells no other, while in fact these parties 
have, with rare exceptions, no comprehension of the meaning of 
the term "clean,'' as applied to milk, and customers are liable to 
be informed, in all innocence, that "the dung has been strained 
out." This state of the milk trade shows that dealers in this article 
have not yet, as a class, risen to meet the requirements established 
by the teachings of bacteriology, and it also indicates that volun- 
tary reforms in the methods employed in the cleansing of con- 
tainers and in the handling of the milk will not be generally 
adopted by those who are at present engaged in the milk business.

SECRETARY'S REPORT. 69 

Too much credit cannot be given to those dairymen and dealers who 
have responded to the demand for natural milk, free from dirt, and 
who are setting an example for others to follow. Reference to the 
accompanying chart shows that previous to the general acceptance 
of the view that infantile diarrhoea is almost invariably caused by 
unclean milk, the mortality among children varied from 63.85 per 
10,000 inhabitants in 1884 to 88.36 per 10,000 inhabitants in 
1882, while from 1902 until the end of the last statistical year the 
proportion of deaths did not exceed 56.30 per 10,000 in any year, 
and in 1898 it fell to 40.25. During the past four years the deaths 
recorded as having been caused by infantile diarrhoea have num- 
bered as follows: 1901, 1,895; 1902, 1,878; 1903, 1,603; 1904, 
2,423. The figures for 1904 show an increase of more than 60 per 
cent, over the average number of deaths from infantile diarrhoea 
during the preceding three years, and indicate unmistakably the 
introduction of some new and unfavorable influence upon the 
health of young children. Assuming that the return to the use of 
raw milk has been the principal cause of this sudden increase in 
the number of deaths from diarrhoeal diseases among infants, the 
responsibility for the continuance of these fatalities clearly rests, 
to a considerable degree, upon the State and local health depart- 
ments, as well as upon the milk producers and dealers, for while it 
is doubtless true that the present generation of dairymen cannot be 
brought to a full understanding of the importance of cleanliness in 
relation to the milk supply, the laws give to local boards of health 
authority to prohibit the sale of imwholesome milk, and the State 
board is authorized to inspect dairies and report to local boards 
the conditions under which the milk is collected and handled, thus 
supplying the information upon which action for the protection of 
consumers can be taken by the local authorities. This co-operation 
is essential because local boards cannot trace up the sources of the 
milk, and the State board cannot enforce local ordinances. For 
example, one creamery may send milk to twenty towns, and if the 
health board of each of these districts should send an inspector to 
judge of the sanitary conditions of the creamery and of the fifty or 
more dairy premises from which the milk is derived, the visits of 
such a large number of inspectors would be intolerable. Such 
visits would not only be a needless multiplication of expenditure, 
but the standard of cleanliness required by each inspector would 
differ more or less from that of his fellow-inspectors, and endless

60 REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

confusion would ensue. On the other hand, if dairy and creamery- 
inspections are conducted by the State inspectors the work can be 
uniformly performed, and the local oflScers can devote their undi- 
vided attention to the detection and punishment of milk dealers 
who violate ordinances made under authority contained in the act 
approved April 23d, 1897. 

The distribution by local health officers of printed information 
concerning the care of milk after it is received has been found to 
be an exceedingly useful method of protecting the health of infants, 
and a suitable circular or letter placed in the hands of every family 
soon after the birth of a child is reported is likely to receive atten- 
tion, for at that time the baby's interests are usually given first 
place in the domestic affairs. 

The reports of the inspections of creameries show that 124 of 
these establishments have been visited during the past year, and 
many of these have been found to be grossly defective in their 
appointments and management. The owners have justly com- 
plained, in some instances, that between the demands for improve- 
ments which are made by inspectors from I^ew York City, from 
the inspectors of numerous towns in New Jersey and from the 
State board of health, they are doubtful how to proceed. To 
remedy this state of affairs it seems to be advisable that all cream- 
eries should be licensed by the State, and that certain minimum 
requirements shall be complied with before a license is granted. 
By this arrangement good water, suitable drainage, efficient cooling 
appliances and other essential facilities for receiving and dis- 
tributing milk could be secured without friction or misunder- 
standing. 

The total number of specimens of food and drugs examined in 
the State laboratory of hygiene during the year has been as follows : 
Milk, 1,381; water, 199; other food, 1,381; drugs, 687; total, 
3,648. Specimens found to be below the standard fixed by law: 
Milk, 345 ; other food, 415. 

The number of suits instituted was 231, of which 176 were for 
the sale of impure milk and 55 were for the sale of other articles. 
The total amount of fines collected and transmitted to the State 
treasurer was $6,462.48. In the bacteriological department the 
total number of specimens examined was 7,048, an increase of 318 
over the number examined in 1904.

Infectious Diseases of Animals. — Compared with previous years, 
but few cases of communicable diseases among animals occurred, 
only two cases of anthrax and sixty-nine cases of glanders having 
been reported. The outbreak of anthrax appeared on the farm of 
Isaac Justice, in Gloucester county. As soon as the disease was 
reported the infected carcasses were cremated, and eighty-five cattle 
and fifty-seven horses in the infected locality were immunized by 
inoculation with anti-anthrax serum. Before the nature of the 
disease was recognized by the owner of the two animals which died, 
the skin was removed from the carcasses by a son of Isaac Justice,

and the young man contracted the disease. He was removed to a 
hospital in Philadelphia and made a slow recovery. The dis- 
tribution of glanders was as follows: Atlantic county, 1; Ber- 
gen county, 5 ; Burlington county, 1 ; Essex county, 21 ; Glouces- 
ter county, 1; Hudson county, 16; Morris coimty, 1; Passaic 
county, 23. 

Cemeteries — The act approved March 25th, 1885, provided that 
no cemetery or burying-ground should be established or enlarged 
until consent was first obtained from the local governing body, and 
also from the local board of health, and the action of the local 
authorities was subject to reversal by the State Board of Health, 
but under this act the State board of health was (see opinion of 
Judge Garretson, Annual Report State Board of Health for 1901, 
page 85) required to decide legal questions relating to property 
damages as well as to deal with questions affecting the public 
health. Chapter 249 of the laws of 1904 amended the previous 
act and conferred upon the board of freeholders of each county 
authority to decide, within their respective jurisdictions, applica- 
tions for the reversal of the action of the local governing body and 
the local board of health. This act was repealed by chapter 64 of 
the laws of 1905, which reads as follows: 

6. It shall not be lawful to locate any new cemetery or burying-ground, 
or to enlarge any cemetery or burying-ground in this state without the 
consent and approval of the governing board or body and board of health 
of the city, town, township, borough or other municipality in which it is 
proposed to locate or enlarge such cemetery or burying-ground, upon appli- 
cation in writing for that purpose made; and in case of the refusal of said 
municipal boards to grant such application, then the person or persons- or 
corporation making such application as aforesaid may, within thirty days 
after such refusal, appeal to the state board of health, which said board 
shall have power to hear said appeal and to consider all sanitary questions 
involved in the location of such cemetery; and in case said state board of 
health shall decide that the location or enlargement of such cemetery or 
burying-ground shall be detrimental from a sanitary standpoint, their 
decision shall be final; in case said state board of health shall decide that 
said location or enlargement of said cemetery or burying-ground shall not 
be objectionable on sanitary grounds they shall have the power to grant 
to the person or persons or corporation appealing to said board under the 
provisions of this act a certificate under the seal of said board to the effect 
that said location or enlargement of such cemetery or burying-ground is 
not objectionable from a sanitary standpoint; and the person or persons 
or corporation obtaining such certificate from the state board of health 
shall have the right, within thirty days from the date of the issuing of 
said certificate, to the appeal to the supreme court, which court shall have 
power to hear said appeal and confirm or reverse the refusal of such

municipal boards in its discretion; and in case such governing board or 
body and board of health of any city, town, township, borough or munici- 
pality shall grant any application for the location or enlarging of any 
cemetery or burying-ground to be located or enlarged within such munici- 
pality, and such location or enlarging shall be deemed objectionable by 
Uie inhabitants of such municipality, then and in such case ten resident 
freeholders of said municipality may, within thirty days after the granting 
of such application, appeal to the state board of health, which said board 
shall have power to hear said appeal and consider all sanitary questions 
involyed, and the proceedings taken under said appeal shall in all respects 
conform to the method provided for in this section in the case of a refusal 
by the local governing board or body or board of health to grant such 
application, and in case said state board of health shall decide that the 
location or enlargement of such cemetery or burying-ground shall be objec- 
tionable from a sanitary standpoint, their decision shall be final and no 
appeal from their decision shall be taken; in case said state board of health 
shall decide that said location or enlargement of said cemetery or burying- 
ground shall not be objectionable on sanitary grounds, they shall have the 
power to issue a certificate under the seal of said board to the effect that 
said location or enlargement of such cemetery or burying-ground is not 
objectionable from a sanitary standpoint, and in case said certificate shall 
be issued, either of the parties interested shall have the right, within 
thirty days from the date of the issuing of said certificate, to appeal to the 
supreme court, which court shall have power to hear said appeal and to 
confirm or reverse the granting of such application by such local municipal 
boards, in its discretion; all persons or corporations making any applica- 
tion provided for in this section for the location or enlargement of any 
cemetery shall accompany the same with a descriptive map of the land 
and premises proposed to be used and occupied for such cemetery or the 
enlargement thereof, a copy of which map shall be filed in the office of the 
clerk of the county wherein such cemetery is proposed to be located or 
enlarged, and in case an appeal shall be made, as provided for in this 
section, a copy of said map shall also be filed with the secretary of the 
state board of health and the clerk of the supreme court. 

2. All acts and parts of acts inconsistent with this act are hereby re- 
pealed, and this act shall take effect immediately. 

Approved March 28, 1905. 

Since the knowledge of the bacterial causes of disease has been 
acquired there has been diminishing apprehension concerning the 
spread of infection from dead human bodies buried in properly- 
made graves in dry soil, for no evidence has been found to show 
that pathogenic organisms continue to exist in the soil after the 
dead bodies undergo decomposition. 

"Cholera and pest bacteria are not demonstrable after from seven to 
thirty days at the outside after burial in cadavers of patients who have 
died from either of these diseases. Typhoid bacilli are not found in bodies 
of typhoid fever patients buried for three months. Tubercle bacilli may 
persist somewhat longer, and Schottelius claims to have demonstrated

virulent tubercle bacilli in bodies buried between one and two years. 
Diphtheria bacilli, pyogenic organisms, tetanus and anthrax bacilli all 
have been found to disappear in from a few days to two months or so. 
The remains of rabid animals lose their infectious powers in from two to 
five weeks after burial. The only organisms that possibly might infect 
the adjacent earth in case of improper burial are anthrax bacilli and 
tetanus bacilli, which then would assume the spore forms. As decompo- 
sition advances in cadavers, the pathogenic forms are crowded out by the 
saprophytes. Proper burial in ground suitable for the purpose, i. e., not 
swampy and draining directly into water-supply, consequently cannot be 
regarded as a procedure that merits condemnation." ♦ 

Nuisances — I^oise nuisances and nuisances caused by smoke, 
offensive odors and vapors have been brought to the attention of 
boards of health in many localities during the past year, and in 
some instances the local sanitary authorities have been undecided 
concerning the course to be pursued in dealing with these com- 
plaints, but the principle upon vs^hich the« health laws are founded 
so clearly limits the operations of boards of health to the improve- 
ment of conditions which affect the public health unfavorably that 
before taking action for the abatement of any nuisance it is essen- 
tial that the board shall be able to show that the nuisance is 
injurious to the public health, and thus far no evidence of a satis- 
factory character has been presented to show that offensive odors 
and noises do, in fact, cause sickness, and therefore it appears to 
be unwise to undertake the abatement of nuisances of this nature 
by procedures under the laws which have been made expressly for 
the prevention of disease. Mr. Charles L. Corbin has advised the 
State board of health concerning this subject as follows : 

"For such a nuisance, anyone whose property is injured can bring suit 
at law for damages or procure an injunction from the Court of Chancery. 
Parsons who are not injured in their property, but are annoyed by the 
nuisance, can apply to the grand jury for an indictment. This is the 
simplest and most efficient remedy. It covers not only nuisances injurious 
to health, but other nuisances." 

In another letter of advice Mr. Corbin says : 

"Anyone whose property is injured by the nuisance can bring suit at 
law for damages, and can renew such suit from time to time and recover 
such damages as he can show he has sustained. He may also, on estab- 
lishing that the nuisance does injury to his property, procure an injunction 
from the court of chancery. Those who are not injured in their property, 
but are annoyed by the nuisance, have no personal action, but their remedy 
is to apply to the grand jury for an indictment. If a number of persons 



• Jour. A. M. A.. July 29th, 1905.

SECRETAEY'S REPORT. 69 

annoyed by the nuisance would join, and collect proof and bring it to the 
attention of the grand jury, and thereby procure an indictment and con- 
viction, it would abate the nuisance more quickly than any other remedy. 
Complaints could be renewed from time to time, and indictment after 
indictment found, and the acquittal of the parties on one indictment would 
not prevent their conviction on another, for a continuing nuisance. There 
remains the remedy through the action of the State board of health. This 
is a narrower remedy than those referred to, for the reason that it is not 
enough to show that there is a nuisance and that there are noisome smells. 
The board of health has no jurisdiction unless it can be shown that the 
nuisance is to a substantial extent injurious to public health. Should the 
parties complaining of this nuisance be able to collect and bring to the 
board satisfactory evidence that in a number of specified cases it can be 
established that the health of individuals named has suffered from the 
nuisance, and that it is likely to continue- to cause injury to health, it 
would then be competent for the State board to take action by bill for 
Injunction, on default of the local board. But it ought not to be overlooked 
that the proof in the enforcement of this remedy will be more difficult 
than that required for the other remedies referred to. A serious nuisance 
might be shown by reason of offensive odors, and this would be sufficient 
proof to warrant an indictment or a suit at law or in equity by a citizen 
especially injured. The State board must further prove danger to public 
health." 

Lines of Travel. — Inspections of railroad passenger stations 
show that, as a rule, they are kept in a cleanly condition, and that 
the water for drinking purposes which is provided for the use of 
patrons is obtained from safe sources. Where neglect has been 
observed in the care of these premises the shortcoming has almost 
invariably been found to be due to the incompetence of the station 
agent. The collection of samples of drinking water from all sta- 
tions where surface wells are depended upon to furnish the supply 
has been continued. The samples are forwarded to the State labo- 
ratory of hygiene for examination, and in all cases where the water 
has proved to be polluted a new and safe source of supply has been 
provided. The system of warming and ventilation of day coaches 
on the Pennsylvania lines, which has now been in use during the 
past four or five years, has given excellent results, and the adoption 
of this method for the introduction of fresh air into sleeping 
coaches would be a most welcome innovation. The use of an ex- 
haust or vacuum system for removing dust from passenger cars has 
been on trial in the yards of the Central Railroad of Xew Jersey, 
and the following report by an inspector of this board gives an 
account of the observations made May 4th, 1905 :

70 EEPOKT OF THE BOAED OF HEALTH. 

"In accordance with instructions to 'inspect the method of car cleaning 
in the yards of the Central Railroad of New Jersey, Jersey City, I visited 
the yards to-day and saw the Pullman sleeping car Dardonia cleaned by 
wh^t is termed the 'vacuum sweeping system/ The Dardonia had been 
sent to the yards upon arrival from St. Louis, Mo., to be cleaned and made 
ready for the return trip in the evening of the same day. After the seat 
coverings had been removed and the carpets taken out to be cleaned, two 
men began the work of sweeping and dusting the interior of the car and 
berths. First, the window shades were drawn down and the accumulation 
of dust was removed' by shaking and the use of a feather duster. The 
window sashes were partly raised, and, by striking sharp blows upon them, 
quantities of dust were dislodged and fell from the inaccessible pockets 
into which they slide when raised, back of the berths. The upper berths 
were next opened and the curtains, blankets and mattresses were removed. 
The blankets and curtains were placed upon the car seats and the mat- 
tresses passed through the car windows to a portable rack upon the plat- 
form beside the car, where the vacuum sweeper was used upon them. The 
apparatus consists in part of a flat metal nozzle attached to a long hose, 
coupled to a system of underground pipes in which a partial vacuum is 
created by exhausting the air by means of air pumps. The nozzle is fash- 
ioned somewhat like a scraper, six or eight inches wide, with a slot-like 
opening about one-eighth of an inch extending along its edge, into which 
dust is carried by the inrushing air. In cleaning the mattresses the nozzle 
was passed over both sides, but not along the edges. Six minutes' time 
was consumed by the operator in cleaning four mattresses, after which 
they were passed into the car, through the windows, to his working mate, 
who immediately placed them in the berths, adjusted the folded blankets 
and berth curtains and closed the berths. From the berths in this car the 
mattresses only were removed from the car. The blankets and curtains 
were not opened up for cleaning or exposed to the direct rays of sunlight, 
nor were they shaken out. Within forty-five minutes from the time the 
first one of the twelve upper berths in this car was lowered the contents 
of the twelve had been removed, the berths dusted out with a feather 
duster, the same bedding replaced and the berths closed. It was noted that 
in closing a berth the air forced out from the comparatively tight com- 
partment dislodged and carried along a quantity of dust from the inac- 
cessible pockets into which the window sash slides when raised. The car- 
seat cushions and movable portions of the backs were next removed from 
the car to the cleaning rack upon the platform, and also the pillows from 
their boxes beneath the seats. The bare fioor, apparently constructed of a 
kind of cement, hard, smooth and without cracks, was swept up with a 
feather duster and the vacuum sweeper brought into the car by passing 
the hose, with the nozzle attached, through a raised window. The mat- 
tresses and seats in the sleeping compartments at the ends of the car were 
cleaned with the sweeper and replaced in position without removing from 
the car. This attempt at cleaning these compartments was superficially 
performed by an employe who informed me that he had arrived in this 
country from Ireland about five months ago. An attempt to remove the 
dust from the floor of the compartment with the sweeper was not entirely 
successful. With the nozzle attached to the hose, bits of cardboard, partly- 
burned matches and pieces of paper too large to pass through the slot 
were sucked against the opening and barred the entrance of the air and 
dust. With the nozzle disconnected from the hose, which is about one and

SECEETAEY'S EEPOET. 71 

one-half inches in diameter, cinders and dust within several inches of the 
opening were gathered up and carried away by the inrushing air. Match- 
boxes, pieces of paper and similar articles, however, frequently lodged 
across the mouth of the hose and blocked the work; and I was given to 
understand that for removing dust from bare floors, behind pipes and 
many similar places difficult to reach, found in the modem-constructed 
sleeping-cars, the sweeper cannot be successfully used. In the cleaning of 
carpets, seats and surfaces with which the nozzle can be brought in close 
contadt, the vacuum method appears to be ideal in that no dust is raised 
into the air by its use, but as the heavy, scraper-like nozzle is dragged 
across the surface, not only the loose dust is whisked away, but evidently 
adhering particles are loosened from the surface to which they cling, and 
are drawn into the pipes and carried to the receptacles in which the dust 
is gathered and afterwards disposed of. Carpets, car seats and cushions, 
after treatment, appear quite free from dust and had a bright, clear ap- 
pearance. That the dust is not only removed from the outer surface of 
textile fabric is apparent from the fact that a sharp blow with a stick 
upon a cleaned carpet or plush car seat failed to raise any visible dust. 
In other sleeping cars being cleaned on the same track as the Dardonia 
the blankets were removed from the car to the cleaning rack, and I was 
informed by a workman that the blankets were put out to air; that they 
receive no mechanical cleaning, nor are they unfolded and hung up so that 
all surfaces are exposed to the sunlight and air. Whether they are re- 
moved from the car or not during the cleaning depends somewhat on the 
time the car is left in the yard for this purpose. I was informed by Mr. 
Richards, yardmaster, that all blankets used in the sleepers having the 
Central yards in Jersey City as one of their terminal points are sent to 
the company's shops in Wilmington, Del., once every six months to be 
washed. By this rule a car is furnished with fresh blankets once every 
six months." 

Advantage has been taken by two lines of railroad, viz., the 
Pennsylvania and the Philaldelphia and Eeading, of the authority 
contained in the act approved April lith, 1903, prohibiting spit- 
ting in passenger cars, and signs have been conspicuously placed 
in many of the cars of the company announcing that "spitting is 
prohibited." 

Questions relating to the duty of supervising the sanitary con- 
ditions on ferry-boats which ply on the Hudson river between New 
Jersey and New York was brought to the attention of the Attorney- 
General, and his opinion in reference to this matter is stated in the 
following communication : 

State of New Jebsey, 
Office of the Attorney-General. 

Trenton, N. J., Nov. 4th, 1904. 
Dr. Henry Mitchelh Secretary State Board of Health, Trenton, N, J,: 

My Dear Sir — I have hefore me your favor of the 1st with the three 
enclosures, as therein stated, and have considered the question therein 
submitted as to whether the sanitary authorities of this State possess the

72 KEPOKT OF THE BOAKD OF HEALTH. 

power to enforce regulations to prevent the spread of infectious diseases 
on ferry-boats plying between the cities in New Jersey and points in ad- 
joining States. My opinion upon this question is that the State may do 
so. Of course, by the federal constitution. Congress is given the supreme 
and sole power to regulate commerce between the States, but the Supreme 
Court of the United States has frequently held, especially in the absence 
of legislation by Congress, that this clause of the constitution does not 
prevent the States from passing suitable sanitary laws to preserve the 
health of their citizens.. For this reason State quarantine laws have, time 
and again, been upheld by that high tribunal. I am unaware whether 
there is any legislation by Congress covering the matter to which your 
communication refers. Assuming there is not, however, my view is that 
the reasonable regulations of the proper sanitary authorities of this State 
may be enforced against ferry-boats or persons therein traveling, to pre- 
serve the health of the citizens of this State and to prevent the spread 
therein of infectious diseases. I return herewith the enclosures contained 
in your communication. Yours very truly, 

ROBERT H. McCARTER, 

Attorney-General, 

Local Sanitary Administration. — The activity of local boards of 
health in New Jersey in the enforcement of laws and ordinances 
for the protection of the public health varies from zero to a high 
degree of efficiency, and but little uniformity exists in the measures 
which are employed in the different sanitary districts. This great 
contrast in the operations of the different health boards is partly 
due to the lack of opportunity for comparison of views concerning 
common problems with the officials of other districts. The act 
approved April 8th, 1903, which provides that future appointees 
of local boards of health shall be qualified for the duties which they 
are expected to perform, promises to effect valuable improvements 
in the service, and annual meetings between these officers for the 
discussion of questions relating to their work will prevent the repe- 
tition of errors and give to each individual the advantages which 
attend the experience of fellow-officials. The following bill was 
introduced during the legislative session of 1905, but, after passing 
the Senate unanimously, it was defeated in the House : 

A Further Supplement to the act entitled "An act to establish in this 

State boards of health and a bureau of vital statistics and to define 

their respective powers and duties/' approved March 31, 1887. 

Be it enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New 

Jersey: 

1. The board of health of the state of New Jersey is hereby authorized 

to appoint, .once in each year, a time and place for a conference between 

the members of said board and delegates from the various local boards of 

health in this state for the consideration of questions relating to the pre-

SECKETAEY'S KEPOKT. 73 

yentlon of the spread of dangerous communicable diseases and the promo- 
tion of the public health. 

2. Each local board of health is hereby authorized to appoint one of its 
members or officers or employes as a delegate from such board to attend 
every such annual conference, and the actual traveling and hotel expenses 
of the delegate so appointed shall be paid by the treasurer or other dis- 
bursing officer of the township or municipality within which such local 
board has jurisdiction upon presentation by the delegate of a certificate of 
his appointment and a bill of his expenses duly verified by affidavit 

3. This act shall take effect immediately. 

The attention of local boards of health is directed to section 626 
of the Postal Laws and Regulations (1902), as follows : 

"Sec. 626. A postmaster should refuse to receive into his office mail mat- 
ter brought to it by persons who are inmates of or messengers from houses 
containing cases of contagious diseases, such as small-pox, * * * ftc., 
when ordered to do so by a board of health or local authority having 
jurisdiction of matters affecting the public health. If there be no such 
organization or official, the postmaster should be governed by the advice 
of one or more reputable physicians. 

"2. Mail matter arriving at an office addressed to the inmates of such 
houses may be sent to them by the hands of some responsible person 
known to the postmaster. 

"3. When a board of health serves upon a postmaster a certified copy of 
a declaration or order duly made, that mail matter from any other post- 
office is liable to communicate a contagious disease prevailing at the time, 
he should refuse to receive such mail matter from any carrier or niessen- 
ger, and will deliver to the carrier or messenger a copy of such order or 
declaration and will report the facts at once to the First Assistant Post- 
master-General and the Division Superintendent of Railway Mail Service. 
If there be no board of health the same action may be taken by the post- 
master upon the declaration of a regular county or city medical society, 
or, if there be none, upon the advice of a physician reputable in his pro- 
fession. The mail so returned shall be held until the prohibition is 
removed, and shall, after being properly fumigated under the me<lical 
authorities, be dispatched to its destination. 

"4. If a case of small-pox ♦ ♦ ♦ or other contagious disease occurs 
in the family of a postmaster occupying a building in which the post-office 
is kept, the postmaster should notify his sureties to take possession of the 
office and conduct it temporarily elsewhere until the danger of contagion 
is passed. 

"5. When blanks, books and supplies of a post-office become infected, so 
as to render them liable to communicate small-pox or other contagious 
disease, permission will be given to burn them upon application being 
made to the First Assistant Postmaster-General, Division of Post-Office 
Supplies. The postage stamps must be carefully counted in the presence 
of two disinterested witnesses, a statement of their classification and 
amount sworn to and forwarded, together with the letter authorizing said 
destruction of supplies, to the Third Assistant Postmaster-General, Divi- 
sion of Redemption of Stamped Paper.''

74 EEPOKT OF THE BOAKD OF HEALTH. 

The following letter from the Attorney-General definitely settles 

a question which has often arisen in many localities in the State. 

It will be seen that registrars of vital statistics cannot lawfully 

accept certificates of deaths which are issued by persons who are 

not licensed as physicians, and where certificates are presented 

which are signed by unauthorized persons the burial permit should 

be refused, and the facts relating to the case should be sent to the 

coroner : 

State op New Jersey, 
Office op the Attorney-General. 

Trenton, N. J., May 31st, 1905. 
Dr, Henry Mitchell, Secretary State Board of Health, Trenton, N. J.: 

My Dear Sir — I have your favor of the 23d, enclosing a letter from Dr. 
Edward Guion, of Atlantic City, desiring a ruling as to the character of 
the person who can properly sign and file a death certificate pursuant to 
section 3 of chapter 39 of the Laws of 1888. In my opinion, it is the plain 
purpose of that law to require that no one but a duly-licensed physician 
shall make the necessary death certificate. Any other than such is, as you 
know, prohibited from practicing in the State, and I am satisfied that the 
Legislature intended that the "physician" who must, by the third section 
of the law, sign a proper death certificate, should be a duly-licensed phy- 
sician in the State. Very truly yours, 

ROBERT H. McCARTER, 
Attorney-General, 

Sanitation in Resorts. — Some of the responsibilities borne by 
health boards in localities where large numbers of persons reside 
temporarily are quite different from those which constitute the 
usual routine in all-the-year communities, and the protection 
afforded visitors does not only extend to ordinary preventive meas- 
ures, but should include defense against the risTs to which strangers 
are exposed in hotels and other public places. N^ew Jersey has 
many towns which depend solely upon summer visitors for their 
bilsiness, and in some of these the sanitary and municipal authori- 
ties are showing that they are cognizant of the commercial interests 
of the locality, and are endeavoring to reach a sanitary standard 
consistent with the claim to healthiness which is invariably made 
for all such towns. In well man.aged resorts the food and water- 
supplies receive unremitting attention. House-to-house inspection 
is continued daily, and upon this department of the sanitary work 
rests the foundation for the action which is taken by the health 
board for securing prompt removal of refuse accumulations and for 
the radical improvement of defective constructions. Cleanliness in

barber shops, enforcement of anti-spitting regulations, purification 
of infected rooms in hotels and boarding-houses, isolation of in- 
fected persons, cleaning and sprinkling of streets, decent daily 
removal of refuse materials and the suitable disposal of waste 
substances must all have tireless and intelligent attention if the 
patronage of the travelers of this wide-awake age is to be retained 
and increased.

Inspection of Public Water Supplies in 
New. Jersey. 



With the enactment in 1899 of the law to prevent the pollution 
of streams the first systematic inspection of the sources of public 
water-supplies in New Jersey was undertaken. The State board 
of health was entrusted with the work and the annual reports of 
the board show the results which have been accomplished. The 
records show that the wafer shed of the Hackensack river, from 
which water is distributed to more than thirty towns, has becoi 
ahnofit entirely freed from direct sources of pollution, 254 sources 
of contamination having been removed, leaving only three known 
points of pollution, and these cases are at the present time before 
the court of chancery. The Pequannock water shed, which 
supplies the city of Newark, is remarkably free from sources 
of pollution, and those which are at present existing, three 
in number, are now under consideration by the court. The 
Rahway river has been condemned by the State board of health 
as a source of water-supply, and the authorities of the city of 
Rahway have been advised to secure a new supply. The Maurice 
river is being polluted by the sewage from the borough of Vineland, 
and a suit in chancery has been instituted to prevent the further 
contamination of the waters of this stream. Regular periodical 
examinations of the public water-supplies of a few of the larger 
towns of the State has been conducted in the State laboratory of 
hygiene for several years, and recently this service has been 
extended to include the following localities : Hoboken, Jersey City, 
New Brunswick, Princeton, Rahway, Lakewood, Bridgeton, Boon- 
ton, Bordentown, Millville, Morristown, Elizabeth, Camden, 
Atlantic City, Asbury Park, Long Branch, Trenton, P^rth Amboy, 
Plainfield, Passaic, Orange and Newark.

126 EEPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

The purpose of these laboratory examinations of the water is 
to supplement the inspection of the streams, and to furnish infor- 
mation which will indicate any changes which may occur in the 
quality of the water, and in this manner assist in detecting new 
or undiscovered contaminations. 

HACKENSACK BIVEB. 

The inspection of the Hackensack river has been continued 
during the year, but at the present time the number of direct con- 
taminations of this stream within the State of !N'ew Jersey has 
been reduced to three. The sanitary survey of the stream by an 
employe of the Hackensack Water Company has been continued, 
and it is evident that in future there will be the necessity for 
maintaining this system of inspection. A perfected system of 
filtration has been introduced by the company, and will be in 
operation in a very short tima The iresults of the work which 
has been done in the efforts to secure the purification of the watera 
of the Hackensack river is an evidence of what may be accom- 
plished, by the constant inspection of a stream and the intro- 
duction of a filtration system, in providing a pure water-supply. 
When the filtration system is in operation the supply furnished to 
consumers from this river will be as well guarded as any surface 
supply in the State. During the year a number of reinspections 
have been made along the stream, and the record of these inspec- 
tions is as follows : 

No. 110. Inspection of premises located on Great Bear creek, 
north of Woodcliff, showed that a sink drain discharged into a 
stream which is one of the tributaries of the Hackensack river. 
Several notices have been sent to the owner to discontinue the 
contamination of the stream. As the notices have not been com- 
plied with the facts in the case were presented to the attorney- 
general, and an application has been made to the court of chan- 
cery for an injunction to restrain the owner from continuing the 
contamination. 

No. 149. Inspection of premises on the Alpine road showed that 
manure is placed so near one of the tributaries of the Hackensack 
river as to cause contamination of its waters. A notice was served 
upon the owner to discontinue the contamination of the stream at

EEPOKT ON INSPECTION OF STEEAMS. 127 

this point, and the notice has been complied with, but it will be 
necessary from time to time to reinspect the premises to prevent 
further pollution of the stream. 

No. 173. Inspection of premises located on the Hook road 
showed that foul liquids from the barnyard were discharged 
directly into the Pascack river, which is one of the tributaries of 
the Hackensack river. Notice was served upon the owner to dis- 
continue the contamination of the waters of the river at this point, 
but no attention having been paid to the notice the facts in the case 
were presented to the attorney-general, and an application has 
been miade to the court of chancery for an injunction to restrain 
the owner from the further pollution of the waters of the stream. 

No. 198. Inspection of premises located near Oradell showed 
that foul liquids from the cow stable and pig pen were washed 
directly into a stream which is one of the tributaries of the Hack- 
ensack river. These premises have been reinspected from time 
to time, but the pollution seems indirect, and under advice from 
the office of the attorney-general no action has as yet been taken 
in this case. 

No. 205. Inspection of premises located at Park Eidge showed 
that a pig pen is placed within twelve feet of a stream which is 
one of the tributaries of the Hackensack river. A notice was 
served upon the owner to discontinue the contamination at this 
point, and a reinspection of the premises showed that the notice 
had been complied with. 

No. 206. Inspection of premises located at Park JRidge showed 
that a privy vault was placed upon the bank of a stream which is 
one of the tributaries of the Hackensack river, and that the con- 
tents of the vault were overflowing upon the surface of the groimd 
near the stream. A notice was served upon the owner to discon- 
tinue the contamination of the paters of the stream at this point, 
and a reinspection of the premises, showed that the notice had been 
complied with. 

No. 207. Inspection of premises located at Tenafly showed that 
waste liquids from a manure pile drain into a ditch, and thence to 
a tributary of the Hackensack river. A notice was served upon 
the owner to discontinue the contamination of the stream at this 
point, and a reinspection of the premises showed that the- notice 
had been complied with.

128 EEPOET OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

No. 208. Inspection of premises in Norwood showed that drain- 
age from a manure pile discharged into a small ditch, and thence 
into a tributary of the Hackensack river. A notice was served 
upon the owner to discontinue the further pollution of the waters 
of the stream at this point, and a reinspection of the premises 
showed that the notice had been partially complied with. 

No. 209. Inspection of premdses located at Norwood showed 
that drainage from a manure pile was discharged into a ditch 
which is connected with one of the tributaries of the Hackensack 
river. A notice was served upon the owner to discontinue the 
contamination of the waters of the stream at this point, and a rein- 
spection. of the premises showed that the notice had been complied* 
with. 

JUMPING BROOK. 

"Following is a report of an inspection of Jumping brook, located about 
two and one-half miles west of Asbury Park and emptying into Shark 
river: The East Jersey Coast Water Company, of which Charles A. Buck» 
1014 Monroe avenue, Asbury Park, is the superintendent, furnishes water 
to the following localities: Avon, Bradley Beach, Bradley Park, West 
Grove, West Asbury Park, Loch Arbour, and during the past summer, 
when the supply in Asbury Park was insufficient, a certain portion was 
furnished to that city. The pumping station is located near Kisner's pond, 
where formerly there was a mill, and the water is obtained from Jumping 
brook at a point a few hundred feet below the mill pond. 

"The record of the inspection of the water shed of this stream is as fol- 
lows: Above the pumping station, on the east side of the pond, is located 
the residence of Leroy Whitney. These premises are owned by the water 
company. A pile of garbage was found on said premises within forty feet 
of the pond and upon a steep bank which slopes to the pond. The old 
privy on the premises is within 100 feet of the pond, near the top of the 
bank, but a new privy has been constructed, which is 125 feet away from 
the pond and nearer the dwelling. Half a mile up the stream, and on the 
east side, a branch known as Hawkin's brook enters from the northeast. 
On the premises of Isaac Garrabrant a barnyard is located about 150 feet 
away from the stream, on a side hill, and a pig pen, which is in a filthy 
condition, is located within seventy feet of the brook. The privy on the 
premises is about 200 feet away, but so placed that there is little danger 
of contamination. A quarter of a mile further up, on the east side of the 
same stream, is the property occupied by Frank Marks. A chicken yard 
on these premises is located about seventy-five feet from the stream, and 
a privy vault is located about fifty feet away and on the same slope. A 
quarter of a mile further up, on the south side of the brook, are the prem- 
ises of Elwood Palmer. A pig pen, which contains manure, is located 
within seventy-five feet of a ditch which discharges into the stream in wet 
weather, and a privy vault is located 125 feet from said ditch. One-half a 
mile further northeast, on the east side of the stream, are the premises of

M. L. Smock. A leaching privy vault is within twenty feet of a swale, and 
foul liquids were noticeable surrounding the brick vault. The pig pen on 
these premises is about 150 feet away from the stream. Garbage is fed 
to the pigs. 

"The second branch, which enters from the east side, crosses the road 
which leads from Springfield avenue to Hamilton. Between this branch 
and the main brook are located the premises occupied by Wesley dulphin. 
The pig pen on these premises is within 100 feet of the brook. The foul 
liquids from the barnyard cross the field by a small ditch and discharge 
into the street gutter, and could be traced to within ten feet of the road 
bridge over the brook. The house drain discharges into a small, stream 
in the rear of the house and thence directly into Jumping brook. The 
privy vault is within forty feet of the stream, and the contents of the 
vault were fiowing down the embankment toward the brook. One-quarter 
of a mile beyond this point, on the east side of Jumping brook, are located 
the premises of Charles A. Bennett. A spring is situated near the house, 
and from this spring the water fiows directly into Jumping brook. Near 
the spring house two wash tubs were found, and there was evidence that 
clothes are washed at this point and that the wash water is thrown upon 
the bank of the brook. Two branches of Jumping brook cross the Green 
Grove road at a point one-quarter of a mile further north. On the most 
northerly of these branches are located two premises owned by John H. 
Truax. The barnyard on one of these premises is within sixty feet of the 
brook, and hog pens are located within 125 feet of the brook. At the time 
of inspection there was no water in this stream, but a bridge is constructed 
over it, and it is evident that in times of rain a considerable amount of 
water is caMed directly from this point to Jumping brook. On the more 
southei'ly of the two branches mentioned is located the farm owned by 
Mary E. Neuman, of Belmar, and occupied by Goodenough Jackson. These 
premises are on the north side of Asbury avenue. A pig pen on the prem- 
ises is located within 150 feet of a swale, and in times of freshet the 
washings from these premises would be conveyed to the tributary above 
mentioned. From the west side of Jumping brook, and north of Hamilton, 
a branch enters the stream from the west. On this branch is located the 
truck farm owned by Eliza Elmer. The pig pen is within 250 feet of the 
branch, and althQugh there is no direct contamination, during times of 
rain the waste fiuid« will be carried directly into the brook. Garbage is 
fed to the pigs on these premises. On the south side of this branch are 
the premises of James Simpson, and garbage and liquid manure were 
found in the vicinity of the barn within 200 feet of the stream. Other 
premises were examined along the main road in Hamilton, but no direct 
contaminations were discovered." 

Upon three of the premises mentioned in the above report the 
contamination of the waters of Jumping brook was direct, and 
notices were therefore sent to the owners to discontinue further 
pollutions of the waters of the stream. Keinspection of these 
premises showed that in two instances the notices had been com- 
plied with, and in the remaining case the o^vner of the premises 
immediately corrected the existing conditions.

MAUBICE EIVER. 

From this river is obtained a portion of the supply of potable 
water for the city of Millville. On one of the tributaries of the 
river, within the borough limits of Vineland, has been placed the 
sewage disposal works for the borough. Frequent inspections and 
chemical examinations have been made of the effluent from the 
sewage disposal plant, and a notice was forwarded to the municipal 
authorities in Vineland to discontinue the further pollution of the 
waters of one of the tributaries of the Maurice river at this point. 
The facts in the case were finally submitted to the attorney-general, 
and a bill has been filed in chancery to enjoin the authorities in 
Vineland from the further pollution of the stream. This case is 
still pending in the courts. 

PEQUANNOCK BIVER. 

From this stream the water-supply for the city of Newark is 
obtained. Careful inspections have from time to time been made 
of the water shed for the purpose of discovering possible sources 
of contamination. Twenty-two premises were inspected during 
the past year, and in but five instances were direct contaminations 
discovered. The cases are as follows : 

No. 221. Inspection of creamery premises located at Stockholm 
showed that waste liquids from the creamery were conveyed by a 
wooden trough to a ditch and thence to th^ Pequannock river, and 
that the waters of the river were contaminated thereby. Notice 
was served upon the owner to discontinue the contamination of 
the waters of the river at this point, and as no action was taken 
by him the facts in the case were presented to the attorney-general, 
and an application has been made to the court of chancery for an 
injunction to restrain the owner from the further contamination 
of the stream at this point. 

No. 222. Inspection of premises located at Stockholm show^ed 
that a pig pen is located on a sloping bank thirty-six feet from the 
river. A manure pile is also located within forty feet of the 
stream and a leaching privy vault is within sixty-six feet of the 
bank of the river. A notice was sent to the owner of the- property 
requesting that the contamination of the stream at this point should

be discontinued, and a reinspection of the premises showed that 
the notice had been complied with. 

No. 223. Inspection of premises in Williamsville showed that 
the privy vault near a school-house is located within a few feet of 
a swamp, and in times of heavy rain the waters of one of the 
tributaries of the Pequannock river may be contaminated by the 
foul liquids from the vault A communication was addressed to 
the clerk of the board of education, requesting that a change should 
be made in the location of the privy. 

No. 224. Inspection of premises near Stockholm showed that 
a pig pen on said premises is located over a brook which is one of 
the tributaries of the Pequannock river. A notice was forwarded 
to the owner to discontinue the contamination, but no action having 
been taken the facts in the case were reported to the attorney- 
general, and an application has been made to the court of chancery 
for an injunction to restrain the owner from further pollution of 
the stream. 

No. 225. Inspection of premises located near Stockholm showed 
that a privy vault was located mthin thirty feet of a stream whidi 
is one of the tributaries of the Pequannock river, and that the 
cowyard is located on both sides of the brook. A notice to dis- 
continue the contamination of the waters of the brook at this point 
was forwarded to the owner, and a reinspection of the premises 
showed that the notice had been complied with. 

No. 226. Inspection of premises located in Newfoundland 
showed that waste liquids from a kitchen sink were discharged 
through. an iron pipe to a ditch which leads to low ground near a 
tributary of the Pequannock river. Inspection also showed that 
a leaching privy vault is placed near the stream and that a pig pen 
is located near the privy. Notice to discontinue the contamina- 
tion of the stream at this poinjt was forwarded to the owner, and 
a reinspection of the premises showed that the notice had been 
complied with.

RAHWAY BIVEH. 

The knowledge gained by constant inspection of this stream 
has led to the definite conclusion that water for potable purposes 
should no longer be taken from it, and that the city of Eahway 
should make provision for a new source of supply. Along the 
stream and its tributaries the population is rapidly increasing. 
When we consider that the various tributaries of the river pass 
through East Orange, West Orange, Orange, Millburn, Garwood 
and Cranford, and that a number of factories and residences are 
located directly upon the banks of the various streams, it will be 
seen that the purification of the waters of the river, under the 
present law, is imlpossible. Experience has shown that although 
a notice may be served on the individual upon whose premises 
there is contamination of the river, and the notice is complied 
with, that within a very short time the contamination is renewed. 
In addition to this all the street washings in the various munici- 
palities reach the stream and tend to render its waters impure. At 
a meeting of the state board of health the conditions existing along 
the river were discussed, and a communication was addressed to 
the municipal authorities and the local board of health of Rahway 
in which the necessity of obtaining a new supply for that city was 
urged. During the year inspections of portions of the river have 
been made as follows : 

No. 203. Inspection of the premises occupied by the Diamond 
Paper Mill, at Millburn, showed that a large amount of sewage 
from the mill was being discharged directly into the Rahway 
river. The mill is connected with the public sewer, but at the 
time of inspection only a portion of the sewage was discharged 
into the sewer. A notice to discontinue further contamination of 
the stream was sent to the owners, and a reinspection of the 
premises showed that the notice had been complied with. 

N'o. 204. Inspection of the premises owned by the Lighthipe 
Paper Company, of Millburn, showed that sewage was discharged 
into the west branch of the river. Notice was served on the owners 
to discontinue the further pollution of the stream, and a reinspec- 
tion of the premises showed that the notice had been complied 
vdth. A short time after this the mill was totally destroyed by 
fire.

drainage was discharged directly into the pond below the Diamond 
Paper Mill. The owner was notified to discontinue the contamina- 
tion of the waters of the pond, and in compliance with the notice 
the houses were at once connected with the public sewer system. 

JSTos. 214, 215, 216, 217 and 218. Five premises in Millbum 
own by one person were inspected, and the contamination of the 
river was direct in each case. The owner was notified to discon- 
tinue the contamination of the stream, and in all but one of the 
cases the notice was complied with. 

No. 219. Inspection of a tenement property in Millbum showed 
that house drainage was discharged on to the surface of the ground 
near the river. The owners were notified of the conditions, and 
the premises were connected with the public sewer system. 

No. 220. Inspection of premises on Springfield road showed 
that foul liquids from a house drain were discharged into the 
Eahway river. A notice to discontinue the contamination was 
served upon the owner, and a reinspection of the premises showed 
that the notice had been complied with. 

No. 227. Inspection of the premises of the Eastern Tanning 
Company, at Kenilworth, showed that foul liquids from the tan- 
nery were discharged on to the ground, and during times of heavy 
rain contaminated the waters of the Rah^^ay river. The owners 
took inamediate steps to discontinue the contamination. 

No. 228. Inspection of premises located in Cranford showed 
that a house drain discharged directly into a brook which is one 
of the tributaries of the Rahway river. A notice was sent to the 
owner to discontinue the contamination, and a communication was 
received from him in which it -was stated that he was willing to 
take steps to prevent further contamination of the river.

Report on Infectious Diseases of Animals. 

BY A. CLABK HUNT, M.D., STATE SANITARY INSPECTOR. 



During the year ending October 31st, 1905, two cases of anthrax appeared 
near Centre Square, Gloucester county. T. B. Rogers, D.V.S., was re- 
quested to supervise the application of preventive measures to control the 
spread of the disease, and his report, under date of April 17th, 1905, is 
as follows: "On the twenty-flrst of February last I received instructions 
from the State board of health to investigate a supposed outbreak of 
anthrax near Centre Square, Gloucester county, on the farm of Isaac Jus- 
tice. I found that Mr. Ju8ti<!e had lost two cows, and that his son, Oliver 
Justice, had become infected with the disease through skinning one of 
them. The carcasses had been dragged into a ravine near the banks of 
Raccoon creek, and one of them had been almost entirely eaten by dogs 
and buzzards. The carcasses were cremated and the ravine filled up level 
with tile surrounding ground. Free vaccination of the cattle and horses 
was offered to all the farmers in the infected district, and eigfljitQen availed 
themselves of this offer, and for th^ifi' eighty-five head of c£ttt\je^and fifty- 
seven head of horses were immunte^ without accident." 

A number of deaths of cattle from forage poisoning were reported as 
occurring in Lebanon township, Hunterdon county. The outbreak was 
investigated by "W, H. Lowe, D.V.S., of Paterson, and his ret)ort follows: 
"I was in Hunterdon county on Monday, November 28th, 1904, in behalf 
of the owners of cattle, and visited five farms in the neighborhood of 
Lebanon. About twenty cows had died, and about as many more were 
sick, on the farms I visited, suffering from what I diagnosed as forage 
poisoning. The evidence seems to point to a certain carload of malt of 
brewers' grains as containing or producing the deadly agent that has given 
rise to such alarming and serious results. Whether the poisoning is due 
to or produced by some specie of fungi in the malt, or whether it is en- 
tirely a chemical action or process, can only be determined and demon- 
strated in the laboratory by chemical and bacteriological tests. I halve 
this day forwarded a specimen of the malt to the laboratory at Trenton 
for examination. All tke dead cows, as well as those affected, had had 
grains from the particular car referred to. No cows were affected on any 
of the farms except those that had been fed grains from this car. A poor 
farmer with eleven cows, who had run out of other feed, fed all grains and 
had eight cows dead at the time of my visit, and the remaining three 
affected. The trouble affects different animals differently, but the symih 
toms are essentially those of forage poisoning. Refusal to eat, suspension 
of secretion of milk, excessive salivation and frothing at the mouth, grind- 
ing of the teeth, contraction of the pupil of the eye, glassy appearance of 
the eye and in some cases blindness, animals becoming stiff and showing

a staggering gait when forced to move, animals assuming peculiar or 
unusual positions or attitudes, cerebral symptoms becoming marked as 
the disease advances. I saw one cow trying to stand on her head, another 
cow on her knees and standing on her two hind feet, pressing her head 
against the floor in front of her stall. The remedy consists in the removal 
of the cause. I ordered the feeding of the brewers* grains in question 
stopped altogether, and a change of food; recommended a soft, nutritious 
diet, such as bran mashes, gruels, &c., and advised with the attending 
veterinarian as to the administration of suitable cathartics and other 
remedies as indicated, and the treatment of symptoms of the afFected ani- 
mals. I forbid the use or sale of milk from affected animals, as I do in all 
cases of sickness in milch cows." 

The number of cases of glanders which have been reported is sixty-nine, 
as compared with. 237 reported the previous year. The most serious out- 
break which occurred was in the vicinity of Great Notch and Cedar Grove, 
in Passaic and Essex counties, where the construction of a reservoir, the 
building of roads and railroad improvements required the employment of 
a large number of horses. R. B. Smith, D.V.S., of Montclair, was directed 
to examine the stables where the disease occurred, and his report follows: 
"In compliance with your request of September 12th, 1905, I respectfully 
submit the following report of the outbreak of glanders in and about Great 
Notch, Acquackanonk township. On Saturday, July 15th, I was called by 
one Francis Jacobs, a contractor, to examine his stock of about fifteen 
head of horses. His only reason then was that his horses did not seem to 
be doing well. Upon examination I found that six of his horses were 
suffering from glanders, and so reported your board. The following day, 
with Dr. Lowe and Dr. De Graw, representing your board, I destroyed 
seven horses and found two more cases which should have been destroyed, 
but as Mr. Jacobs wanted to await developments, and the remaining horses 
were all kept by themselves, each with separate pail, we agreed to give 
him time. On July 18th Mr. Jacobs was served with a quarantine notice 
by your board, it having been suggested in view of the fact that there had 
been some one hundred teams exposed to the disease. At the time of this 
outbreak there were three large contracting jobs under way in the vicinity 
of Great Notch, the horses belonging ^lostly. to four contractors, but, worst 
of all, the remaining horses on the jobs belonged here, there and all over, 
one mail. having a l^rse to a dump cart and^ another working a team, and 
then from week to week shifting from one job to another. By July 22d, 
in connection with Dr. M. Pierce, of Paterson, representing Mr. Jacobs, we 
had destroyed all of Mr. Jacobs' horses, fourteen in all, and in the course 
of the next few days destroyed three more belonging to his son and were 
stabled in the same barn. 

"In my course of inspection of the horses that had been exposed I dis- 
covered one case in the stable of John R. Merrian, Albion place, Paterson, 
which was destroyed. This was the only horse he had. In a stable very 
close to Mr. Merrian's were four horses belonging to Mr. Joseph Olzer, one 
of which was affected with glanders and destroyed August 2d. At the 
Cedar Grove reservoir I found one case out of about forty head of horses, 
but, as I have reported you in a previous letter, I am satisfied that there 
were more cases there that had been quietly taken away before the out- 
break was discovered by your board. The twenty teams at the reservoir 
had been shipped to Princeton by the middle of August, and since then I 
have heard nothing from them. Regarding the origin of the outbreak of

glanders in this district, I have formed an opinion which to me 8e^:ns a 
very plausible one, viz., some time during the summer of 1904, the exact 
date of which I presume your board has a record, there was an outbreak 
of glanders in the express stables of E. B. Van Horne, in Jersey City^and 
I understand there were some twenty to thirty animals destroyed. Some 
of the remaining stock of this stable, which were then apparently O. K., 
were sent this spring to the Cedar Grove reservoir. From the horses at 
the reservoir Mr. Jacobs hired one team and kept them in his own stable. 
One of this team was taken sick at Mr. Jacobs' and returned to the reser- 
voir, where it was destroyed before being allowed to enter the bam — for 
what reason I don't know, as stories do not agree. The remaining horse 
of the team was in Mr. Jacobs' stable at the time of my first call, and had 
at th^t.time.a typical case of latent, glanders." 

Six horses having mange were found in Atlantic City. At the request 
of the local authorities, a representative of the State board of health exam- 
ined the animals and made a diagnosis. The local board of health, as soon 
as the true nature of the disease was determined, had the animals seipa^ 
rated and proper medical treatment applied. 

The following is a list of the cases of glanders which occurred during 
the year ending October 31st, 1905:

Report on State Laboratory of Hygiene. 



BY B. B. FITZ BANDOLPH, DIBECTOB. 



To the Board of Health of the State of New Jersey: 

GEKTiJiMEN — I have the honor to submit the following report of the 
operations of the State laboratory of hygiene duirinig the year ending 
October 3l43t, 1905. 

Tbe State laboratory of hygiene is located at 147 Elast State street, 
Trenton, N. J., an-d! consists of two departments— the bacteriological 
department, and the department of food) and dmiigis. The bacteriological 
diepartmient is engaged) in the examination of specimens for diagnosis 
from suspected cases of certain communicable diseases, In the b€u:teri- 
ological examination <^ "water from public and> privcute supplies^ and< in 
such other investigations bearing upon the public health as it may be 
called upon from* time to time to perform. The department of food: and 
drugs is engaged in the analysis of specimens of food and' dirugs, the 
authority for such examination being contained in an act approved March 
21strld01, entUledi^An act to secure the purity of food, beverages, confec- 
tionery, condiments, drugs and medicine, and to prevent deception in the 
distribution and sales thereof.-' The lines of work in both these depart- 
mients have, in the main, been a continuation of those pursued' in former 
years. LorthOrbacteriological department certain ch«unges have been made 
in the method's ensi^oyed in routine examinations whdch' increase the 
accuracy of the results obtidned although at an increased^ expenditure of 
tima It has been possible dlitlng the year to make considerable addi- 
tions to the laboratory equipment, and we are now provided with 
apparatus reasonably adequate for the lines of investigation now in oper- 
ation. The location- of the laboratory, however, is by no miecuis satisfac- 
tory and the room at our disposal is insufBcient and badly arranged. In 
particular, the need of a storeroom is keenly felt, and) its lack results in 
a much heavier annual depreciation of equipment than would occur if it 
were possible to take proper care of our apparatus. It also becomes 
necessary to again call iEittention to the necessity for providing a suitable 
place for the maintenance of andmials for experimental purposes. The 
bacteriological department is seriously hasmpered and its usefulness^ is 
much impaired because it is impossible in our present locatlim to keep 
animals in stock. The routine examination of specimens from suspected 
cases; of glanders, rabies and anthrax, all of whichi should be regularly 
performed in the laboratory, can only be • undertaken occasionally, and 
the rfeSillts obteaiiifed have not the same degree of reliability as would be 
the case if a suitable animal room was available and an adequate stock 
of animals could be kept on hand. It is therefore earnestly recom- 
mended that, in the near future, some more suitable place be obtained, 
which will have at least double the floor space now at our disposal, and

will be so situated' that a sufficien/t stock of animal® can be kept on the 
premises. The bacteriological laboratory Is open for the reception of 
specimens from 7:45 a. m. until 5 p. m. every day except Saturday and 
Sunday. On Saturday the laboratory closest at noon, and on Sundays and 
holidays it Is open from 8:30 a. m. to 10 a. m. The last mall received 
at the laboratory arrives at 7 p. m. on weekdays ^nd at 12 m. on Sundays. 
Specimens -coming In by these malls will be examined on the following 
morning. The regular work of the bacteriological department cons-ists of 
the routine examination for diagnosis of sipecimens from suspected cases 
of diphtheria, pultnonary tuberculosis, typhoid fever and< mialaria, and 
the bacteriological examdn&tioin of sanH>les of water from* public and 
private supplies. Beside this regular work, the lal)oratory Is prepared to 
undertake, when practicable, the Inivesitigetiont of other communicable 
diseases. For the regular work the laboratory provides maiUng cases 
conformingi to the requirements of United States- Postal Order No. 176*, 

• Ord^r No. 176. March 2d, 1900. 

That the order of the Postmaster-General of December 27th, 1897 (Order No. 
677), prescribing the conditions under which specimens of dlseaseil tisaues may 
be admitted to the mails, is modified as follows : 

Specimens of diseased tissued may be admitted to the mail for transmission to 
United States*, State or municipal laboratories, only when inclosed in mailing pack- 
ages constructed , in accordance with the specifications hereinafter enumerated. 
Liquid cultures, or cultures of micro-organisms in media that are fluid at the 
ordinary temperature (below 45*' C, or 113** F.), are unmailable. Such specimens 
may be sent in media that remain solid at ordinary temperatures. Upon the out- 
side of every package shall be written or printed the words "Specimen for Bac- 
teriological Exapiination. This package to be treated as letter mail." No package 
containing diseased tissue shall be delivered to any representative of any of said 
laboratories until a permit shall have first been issued by the Postmaster-General, 
certifying that said institution has been found to be entitled, in accordance with the 
requirements of this regulation, to receive specimens. Specifications for the con- 
istruction of packages for safely conveying through the mails pathological specimens 
for bacteriological examination for diagnosis in cases of suspected diphtheria, tuber- 
culosis and other communicable diseases : 

1. The receptacle for moist specimens of diseased tissues shall be a strodg glass 
vial or test tube, having a capacity not greater than two drams. Said vial shall be 
covered and made water-tight by the use of a metal screw cap and a rubber, or felt 
washer, which has been immersed in melted paraffine; or, if a test tube be used, 
it shall be covered with a tightly-fitting rubber cap. 

2. Said vial or test tube shall be placed inverted in a circular tin box. Said box 
shall be made of I. C. bright tlnplate^ and shli 11^ 'haTefiudh''or^- countersunk bbttom

3. Said tin box shall be placed inverted Inside of a larger tin box, similair to the 
one already described, which should snugly receive the specimen box. Upon the in- 
side of the sides and bottom of this outer box there shall be a lining of compressed 
paper not less than three>is4xteenths of an inch in thickness. Said outer tin box 
shall be closed by a metal screw cap and a rubber or felt washer; or this outside 
box may consist of hard wood, being a block having a cylindrical hole bored in one

director of the laboratory, in writing*, before sending: the specimens. No

thereon) is fully prepaid and the blank form aocomipanying the container 
fully Med' in. Pbyslcians are requested not to send specimens of urine, 
tumofd, etc., to the laboratory., as no examinations will) be made of such 
substances, the work of the laboratory bein^ devoted wholly to the public 
health interests of the State. Reports of the results of examinations are 
Inrvariably sent by mail. If the physician requests it, an additional report 
will be sent by telegraph at the expense of those interested. Reports 
win be madie by telephone if the physician desiring: such) a report calls 
the laboratory and asks for it. On account of the possibility of mistakes 
due to the reception of telephone messages by unauthorized persons, and 
to imperfect transmission over long distances, the laboratory will not 
assume any responsibility for the correctness of reports issued by tele- 
phonei, nor will physicians be caAled on the telephone for the purpose of 
reporting results to them. 

The outfit for collecting a specimen from a case of suspected diphtheria 
consists of a circular, screw-capped, pasteboard-lined box, on the outside of 
which is a blue label bearing the address of the laboratory. Wltlxin is a 
small tube containing a sterile cotton swab on the end of a wire, and a 
blue slip, on one side of which is printed directions for preparing the 
specimen and on the other a form, which must be completely filled in if 
the specimen is to receive attention. It is of the greatest importance that 
this form be filled In legibly and in ink. Every slip is preserved and con- 
stitutes a permanent record of its case, and confusion constantly occurs 
because it Is impossible to read the name of the physician, that of the 
patient, or both. Postage on all specimens must be fully prepaid at letter 
rates. If this is not done specimens. are liable to serious delay in the post- 
office. Specimens from cases of suspected diphtheria are examined every 
day in the year. Those received at the laboratory at or before 7 p. m. are 
planted on modified Loeffler's medium, incubated over night at 37** C, 
and examined at 8 a. m. on the following morning. Specimens received in 
the morning before 11 a. m. are immediately planted and placed in the 
incubator. At 5 f. m. they are examined. It is frequently possible to find 
diphtheria bacilli after incubation for this length of time, and at least 
twelve hours are saved when they can be demonstrated on the same day 
on which they were planted. A negative result after such a short incuba- 
tion is unreliable, and the specimen, if no diphtheria bacilli can be found 
in it, is replaced in the incubator and incubated over night in the usual 
way.. This method of examination after five-hour incubation (originally 
proposed by Bolton) has been in operation for more than a year, and has 
given gratifying results. It is believed that the time so saved greatly 
increases the efficiency of the service* Under ordinary circumstances

reports of the results of the examination of diphtheria specimens are 
mailed at 8: SO a. m., and should reach nearly every city in the State on 
the same day. Reports sent by telegraph should reach the physician by 
10 A. M. To insure prompt delivery of letters and telegrams, physicians 
should be careful to state their full addresses when sending specimens. 
Specimens mailed in the morning will usually reach the laboratory on the 
same day, and the physician should receive a report, if sent by telegraph, 
within twenty-four hours. The postmaster at Trenton has kindly fur- 
nished the laboratory with figures showing the hours when mails leave 
certain towns throughout the State in time to reach the post-office at 
Trenton on the mail which arrives at 7 a. m. It is impossible at this time 
to ascertain these figures for every town in the State in which a rei>ository 
is located, but it is hoped that this will ultimately be accomplished. As 
many of these figures as have been obtained will be found in the list of 
repositories. 

Persons having the bacillus of diphtheria in their throats or noses and 
presenting symptoms of the specific toxaemia due to absorption of the 
metabolic products of the bacillus, but showing no symptoms indicating 
a departure from health, while they cannot be regarded as having the 
disease, are capable of acting as sources of infection, and should be treated 
as such. It sometimes happens that negative results are obtained from 
specimens taken from patients who undoubtedly have diphtheria. This 
may be due to a variety of causes, and a second specimen should always 
be sent after a negative report has been received if the case is suspicious 
from a clinical standpoint. It is well established that, in the majority of 
cases, diphtheria bacilli are present in the throats or noses, or both, of 
convalescents after all symptoms of the disease have disappeared. In 
order to find out when the patient Ceases to be infectious, it is necessary 
to have a bacteriological examination made. In no case should a patient 
be released from quarantine until the specific bacillus has disappeared 
from the throat and nose. Specimens for release should be taken both 
from the throat and nose, as it has been found that the bacillus is fre- 
quently demonstrable in the nose after the throat is clear. It is v^ry 
desirable that two consecutive negative reports be received before the 
patient is released from quarantine, as it has been shown that in a con- 
siderable number of cases the diphtheria bacillus has been found after 
one negative result has been obtained. It sometimes happens that organ- 
isms are found in preparations made from specimens sent for diagnosis 
which resemble somewhat the diphtheria bacilli, but cannot be positively 
identified as such. In these cases the fact that such bacilli have been 
found is reported, and another specimen is requested. While the bacilli in 
the majority of these cases ultimately prove to be organisms other than 
the bacillus of diphtheria, it occasionally happens that a second specimen 
will show typical diphtheria bacilli. 

The outfit for collecting a specimen of sputum from a case of suspected 
tuberculosis consists of a circular, screw-capped, pasteboard-lined tin case, 
having on the outside a white wrapper bearing the address of the labora- 
tory and containing another screw-capped tin case in which is a quarter- 
ounce, screw-topped vial wrapped in absorbent cotton and containing 
enough carbolic acid solution to disinfect the sputum. Between the inner 
and outer cases ts a white slip, bearing, on one rfde, directions for collect- 
ing the sample, and on the other a blank form to be filled in by the physi- 
cian. The dir-ections should be carefully followed and the case repacked.

care being taken to so wrap the vial that it will be kept from moving in 
transit. Postage should be prepaid at letter rates. Specimens of sputum 
are not examined on Sundays or holidays, but, when received on these 
days, are held until the following morning. Thin smears from the con- 
tents of the vials are made on large glass slides, capable of holding twelve 
smears. These are dried, fixed by heat and stained for five minutes at 
80° C, in carbol fuchsln. After thorough washing the silide is immersed 
in a solution of three per cent, hydrochloric acid in methyl alcohol until 
decolorized, then stained for one minute in Loeffler's methylene blue, 
washed', dried and examined. 

It should always be borne in mind that while the discovery of tubercle 
bacilli in the sputum of a patient is certain evidence of tuberculosis, yet a 
single negative result is of little value. In the early stages of the disease 
the bacilli may be entirely absent from the sputum or present in such 
small numbers as to escape detection. If a negative report is received on 
a specimen from a case suspected of having the disease, other specimens 
should be sent at intervals of a few days until the patient recovers or the 
bacillus is found. It should also be remembered that there is little or no 
relation between the number of bacilli present in a single specimen and 
the stage of the disease. Requests are frequently received for an estimate 
of the number of bacilli present in a given specimen, or for a comparison 
between the nupibers present in two or more specimens from the same 
case. It has been customary to give the desired information when pos- 
sible. This will not be done in the future, as it is believed thAt erroneous 
and misleading conclusions are frequently drawn from these reports. 

The examination for typhoid fever is made rby Widal's method. The 
outfit consists of a slip of sheet aluminum, having on o'ne side two rough- 
ened depressions to receive the blood. A wire loop is fastened to the slip 
by means of a gummed label. This slip, together with a card bearing, one 
side, directions for collecting the specimen, and on the other a blank form 
to be filled in by the physician, is enclosed in a stout manila envelope, 
bearing the address of the laboratory on the outside. In collecting blood, 
physicians should be careful to deposit one full drop in each depression 
of the slip, and allow the drops to dry without the use of heat before re- 
placing the slip in the envelope. Specimens from cases of typhoid fever 
are not examined on Sundays and holidays. These specimens are exam- 
ined by making a dilution approximating one to fifteen with distilled 
water, mixing with an equal quantity of a twenty-four-hour broth culture 
of the typhoid bacillus, and examining in the hanging drop. For conveni- 
ence, the results obtained are divided into three groups: (a) Positive, 
when agglutination and clumping can be observed within fifteen minutes 
and are complete within an hour; (&) negative, when neither clumping 
nor agglutination occur within an hour; (c) atypical, when signs of 
either clumping or agglutination show themselves but the reaction is not 
completed within the specified time. 

A positive result fromi a specimeni fronu a case of susipected typhoid 
fever at the dlluition used is almloct certain) evid'en-ce that the patient is 
sufTerinig! fromi, or has experienced in the past, an invasion by the tjrphoid 
bacillus. A negative result hag comparatively little signlficanice, as cases 
frequently occur in which the reaction is delayed or absent altogether. 
Negative resnilts from specimens taken before the fifth or sixth* day of 
the disease have no significance whatever. Atypical reactions have ho 
meaning. Subsequently specimen® may turn out to be either positive or 
negative.

144 REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

E2zamination43' for mfiJAria axe made hy staining a specimen' of blood 
spread in a thin film on a slide or cover glass witbi some of the well-knoiwn 
stains devised for the purpose. Wright's is generally used. The outfit at 
present in use consists of two square glass covers wrapped ini absorbent 
cotton and enclosed in half of a slide mailing case for protection. This 
outfit is objectionable in many ways andi will be discarded* as soon as 
a satiafex;tory one can be devised'. 

The* denvonstration of the parasite of malaria is satisfactory evidence 
that the patient is suffering fromi the disease. A negative report is of 
little value. The majority of specimens sent to the laboratory are 
imiproperly prepared and' can* only be examined imperfectly and with 
di1ff<5lilty. Ailthotfgh the preparation of a thin and even film of bloody 
such as is needed for these examinations, does not seem* to be difficult to 
th experienced worker, yet a very cons-id^rable amount of practice is 
necessary before it can be satisfactorily done. In choronic caseo and in 
patients to whom> quinine has been administered, the parasites in the 
peripheral circulation are so few in nnimiber that very lengthy and care- 
ful searching is necessary to demonstrate their presence. To properly 
examine specimens fromi such cases requires an expenditure of time far 
beyond that available with the present laboratory staff. 

Besides the examinations classed^ as regular work, a variety of other 
specimens are frequently examined, the miost important being those from 
animals suspected of having anthrax, rabies or glanders, and* the bacterial 
examination of samples of water from- public supplies, dairy premises 
and certain other localities. 

In case an animal is suspected of having died of anthrax, either a small 
amoimt of Wood (preferably from the heart or one of the larger vessels) , 
or a portion of the liver or spleen, should be obtained from) it with aseptic 
precautions and sent to the laboratory at once. The outfit issued for the 
oallection of sputum/ may be used for the purpose if care is taken to thor- 
oughly wash out the vial in order to free it from the carbolic acid which 
it contains. An ear, cut from &n animal suspected of having died fromr 
anthrax, wrapped in paper and sent to the laboratory by mail, is not a 
satisfactory specimen and' will not be examined'. The attention of veteri- 
narians is cfUled to the fact that specimens for bacteriological examina- 
tion cannot be sent through the mails unless enclosed in containers made 
iff conformity with poetal order No. 176 (see page 140, footnote]^. Unless 
sent in such containers they will not be accepted for examination. The 
careless practice, indulged in by certain veterinarian®, of sending decom- 
posing portions of animals dead' of anthrax through the mails, wrapped 
simply in paper, is bothi dangerous and disgusting and calls for severe 
condiMnnation. 

Reports of the examination of specimens for anthrax will usually be 
made in from twenty-four to seventy-two hours after the receipt of the 
specimen. 

Animals suspected of suffering from rabies should not be killed, but 
securely confined and kept under observation by a competent veteri- 
narian. AnimaJs in Which the disease has progressed far enough to 
develop those characteristic symptoms which- excite suspicion will not 
live more than a few days, and, if kept under observation, a satisfactory 
diagnosis can be made in miuch less time than it takes to make an exami- 
nation in the laboratory. If, however, it becomes necessary to send speci- 
mens to the laboratory, the head of large animals and the entire carcass 
of small ones, should be sent. Under no circumstances should the brain

be removedl As it is necesisaxy to inoculate animoJfP andi WBrit for them 
to d<eyelop ayiDiptoms of the disease ini ordier to make a satisifactoiT 
diagnosto, it id imposedble to miake a report in lessi than six days from 
the date when the s>pecimen isi received* andi frequently a much longer 
time will elapse. On account of the lack of facilitiesi for keeping animals 
for experimental purposes, and thie difficulty of obtaining suitable ones at 
abort notice, the examination of sipecimensi for rabies nmst neces^sarily be 
som<6whiat unjmtisfactory and uncertain until better laboratory facilities 
are available. 

The routine examination of specimens from* cases susipected of suffer- 
ing from! gilanders canmot be undertaken at the present time on* account 
of the lack of facilities for carrying on) the work. The examination of 
specimens flor glanders involves the inocuJLationi of animals, and it is 
imtpossible to keep a stock of these on hand while the laboratory occupies 
its present quarters. As soon as suitable accommodations are provided 
for animals for experimental< purposes the examination of specimens for 
glanders will be made a part of the regular work of the laboratory. 

Specimens other than/ those above mentioned will not ordinarily be 
examined. Persons desirous of having* such examinations made should 
in every case communicate with) the director of the laboratory/ stating in 
detail the character of the examination desired, before sending the speci- 
men. 

In fonner reports the d^te fixed for the beginning of the year for the 
bacteriological' department has been October 1st. This year it has seemed 
desirable to harmonize the reports of the two departments as regards 
time, and) consequently the following tables, setting forthi the work done 
in the bacteriological department since the last report was made, cover 
a period of thirteen months, from October 1st, 1904, to October 31st, 1905, 
Inclusive:

LABOEATOEY OF HYGIEIfE. 



151 



Table I. shows the number of specimens examined during the year, 
arranged by weeks. Table II. is a summary of the examinations arranged 
by cities and' towns. An inspection of this table shows that the numbers 
of specimens received from cities and town© bear no relation to the popur 
lation of those towne, a few of the larger cities of the 9tate contributing 
more than half of the total number of specimens, while many fairly large 
places are not represented* at alli It is difficult to aocounit for this fact 
in a year marked by no serious epidemics; and the conclusion is almost 
inevitable that physicians in somie localities fall to avail themiselves of 
the assistance offered by the laboratory. It i«t to be regretted, especially 
in the case of diphtheria, that this is so, for if cultures were sent to the 
laboratory from convalescents from this disease for the purpose of dls- 
coverin«g when they cease to be infectious, thie period of detention would, 
in most cases, be materially shortened, and< the d^aniger of infection from 
persons in whom the bacillus of diphtheria persists for longer than the 
usual time would be materially lessened'. It seems important to again 
call attention to the fact that failure to find the diphtheria bacillus in 
cultures mad^ from patients supposed to be suffering from diphtheria 
is by no means positive proof that the clinical diagnosis is erroneous. 
Failure to find these organismis in cases of undy>ubted diphtheria is 
esi>ecially frequent when) the lesion is confined to the larynoc, and therei- 
fore difficult to reach with the swab. It is therefore very desirable that 
more than one specimen be sent to the laboratory if the rei>ort of the 
examination of the first fails to agree with the clinical diagnosis. It is 
just as important that one or more specimens be sent for release, especi- 
ally from laryngeal cases, after a negative result has been obtained. The 
number of specimensi examined since the laboratory has been in operation 
is shown in Table III.

This list has been carefully revised during the past year, and= it is be- 
lieved that outfits can be obtained at any of these places at any time. 
It sometimes happens that, on account of failure to notify the laboratory 
when the stock of cases rums low, some of these repositories are temr 
porarily out of cases. During the last year, on account of in<sufflcient 
funds, it has not always been possible to supply as many m&iling cases 
as were needed. The laboratory is now provided with a sufficient number 
of these cases to meet all reasonable requirements, and* if persons maln^ 
taining repositories will notify us promptly when outfits are needed it will 
be possible to keep repositories supplied at all timies. T*he number of 
repositories is now 362, and it is believed that almost every locality in 
the State has one or more person® who can supply these cases to physi- 
cians. Any localities which are not supplied will be taken care of if appli- 
cation by physicians or officers of local boards of health are made to the 
laboratory for outfits. In the above list figures stating the time when the 
mails leave refer to the hours when the mails close at the post-office. To 
insure transportation by the mails given, it is advisable that specimens 
be left at the post-office at least fifteen minutes before the mail closes. 
It sometimes happens that mailing cases are mistaken by postmasters of 
local offices for third or fourth-class mail matter, and postage is charged' 
at these rates. In order to insure speedy transportation, it is desirable 
that the attention of the postmaster be called to the fact that postage on 
these packages is paid at letter rates, and they should therefore be for- 
warded with' first-class mail. 

Examination of Water From Public and Private Supplies. — ^For a numc 
ber of years the systematic examination of public water-supplies of the 
State has been contemplated, but pressure of other work and' lack of 
equipment for the collection of samples h€is heretofore rendered thisi im- 
possible, although a number of samples have been examined) from various 
localities. The results of these examinations will be found in Table V. 
A plan has at last been devised by which it seems possible to begin this 
work in the near future without unduly taxing the resources of the labora- 
tory, and' the regular monthly examination of samples from about twenty- 
five public supplies will be commenced on or about December 1st, 1905.

Examinatioti of Water Used an Dairy Premises. — ^During the year a 
consicberable number of samples have been examined from wells and: other 
sources of water located on premises where milk is produced for sale, the 
purpose of such examinations being the enforcement of chapter 196 of the 
lawsi of 1903, which prohibits the use of polluted water for washing cans 
and utensils used' in handling milk. The results of these analyses disclose 
conditions which, while not unexpected, are nevertheless startling, and 
reveal clearly the dangers) attendant upon careless anidi unsanitary 
methods) of milk production in use throughout the State.

These waters may he arbitrarily classified as follows: 

First. Waters which are so seriously polluted that they are entirely 
unfit for domestic or dairy use, and if so used constitute a menace to the 
persons using milk which is obtained from dairies on which' such water is 
found. This class, with very lenient s-tandards in the interpretation of 
results, constitutes fifty-three per cent, of the whole number. 

Second. Waters which show undoubted evidences of pollution, which 
pollution, however, is not so recent or apparently so dangerous as that 
described in Class 1. This class includes those waters in which the chemi- 
cal and bacteriological results are discordant and. those in which a sani- 
tary inspection reveals no apparent sources of pollution. This class 
constitutes thirty-six per cent, of the total number. 

Third. Waters which show no evidences of pollution. It is significant 
that this class constitutes only eleven per cent, of the total number. 

These percentages, however, cannot be regarded as indicating the rela- 
tive frequency of polluted and uni)olluted wells on dairy premises, as 
samples were not taken indiscriminately, but were collected from those 
localities where a sanitary inspection indicated that pollution might exist. 

It should! be understood that this classification isi entirely arbitrary, is 
made simply for convenience, and is not intended to indicate that th.e 
waters in Class 1, and possibly in Class 2, are actually dangerous at all 
times. The harmifulness of the water can be determined with a much 
greater degree of certainty by a careful sanitary reinspection of the source 
and its surroundings, if the preliminary examination and' analysis indicate 
pollution. It is evident, however, that a well furnishing water such as

LABORATORY OF HYGIENE. 165 

those grouped in the first class is a constant menace, as the fact that it 
has become so seriously polluted indicates with certainty that the habits 
of the persons living on the premises are. such that, should typhoid or 
other water-borne diseases occur, the well would in all probability become 
infected. The results of analyses of waters of the second class- cannot be 
said to inddcate this with absolute certainty, although, in my opinion, a 
well showing decided evidences of pollution should never be regarded as 
safe, even if the colon bacillus is absent and the analysis indicates that 
ground filtration is efficient and complete. Changes in the ground water 
level, and the amount of water drawn from the well, and many other 
variables may at any time destroy the efficiency of this ground' filtration 
without causing changes in the water which would be detected by the 
persons using it. It is therefore desirable that the use of waters of this 
class be abandoned for dairy purposes when more suitable supplies can 
be obtained. Inasmuch as under the ordinary working conditions at dairy 
farms and creameries small quantities of the water used for washing cans 
anti utensdls inevitably gets into the milk, it will be seen that the danger 
from a polluted water-supply, which may become infected at any time 
when conditions are favorable, is confilderable, even if the numerous epi- 
demics of typhoid fever in this State and others, directly attributable to 
infected milkrsupplies, did not irresistibly point to the same conclusion. 

The methods of bacteriological water analysis and the manner of inter- 
preting results are dealt with in the report of this laboratory for 1904. 
The methods used in the chemical analysis of water are, in every case, 
those recommended by the committee on standard methods for water 
analysis of the American public health association. 

During the year fifty-four samples have been examined from wedls or 
other sources used as private supplies. While only such examinations 
have been made as were deemed to be absolutely necessary* the number 
investigated appears to be unduly large. The laboratory is maintained 
for the purpose of investigating matters relating to the public health, and 
the examination of private supplies should not be undertaken in such an 
institution. Regulations governing the examination of water samples will 
be found elsewhere in this report (See Circular 113, page 1.)

It is to be regretted that time could not be found during the year to con- 
tinue the inivestigation of oysters and clams taken from localities liable 
to pollution. The imi)ortance of this work requires no explanation, and 
as the State becomes more thickly populated the opportunities for pollu- 
tion of shellfish increase. It is hoped that a further investigation along 
these lines may be made during the coming year. ^ t

DEPARTMENT OP POOD AND DRUGS. 

The work of this departm'enit has consisted, as for several years past, 
in the examination of certain substances particularly liable to sophistica- 
tion, the systematic examination of milk and its products-, and in the 
examination of water. The examination of water has already been dis^ 
cussed' in the report of the bacteriological department. The variety of 
articles of food' and drugs is limited for three reasons: (1) There is little 
or no necessity for investigating a large number of these prodlictsi, which 
are regularly put on the market in a state of purity suflacient to meet all 
reasonable requirements; (2) it is only practicable to examine those 
substances whose degree of purity can be determined beyond question by 
well established methods of analysis; (3) the law under which these 
examinations are made isi defective, in that it does not include many 
classes of smbstances which properly come within the jurisdiction of a 
pure food' law. The following table shows the number of specimensi exam*- 
ined during the year in this department :

The analyses of water have been included, in this table, as no account 
of them has been credited to the bacteriological department. 

During the year, as in the past, the examination- of milk has been con- 
fined to the determination of total solids, and the performance of tests 
for preservatives and coloring matter. The percentage of milk samples 
adulterated this year has been greater than in years past, resulting in the 
prosecution of an unusually large number of persons for violation of the^ 
laws ini this respect. These prosecutions, while necessary for the enforce- 
ment of the law, are a serious inconvenience to the members of the 
laboratory staif, as they necessitate the absence 0(f one and frequently 
of both chemists, who are required to attend the trials. This enforced 
absence of chemists has resulted, in a decrease in the total number of 
foods and drugs analyzed during the year. It was found that so much 
time was required during the summer for the examination of milk samples 
and for attendance at court that the examination of food; and dirugs other 
than milk had to be temporarily abandoned'. Inasmiuch as the services' of 
an additional chemist will be available in the near future, it is believed 
that this difficulty can be satisfactorily met next year.

LABORATOEY OF HYGIENE. 169 

This table shows the results of examinations of drugs niade during the 
year. On account of the radical changes made in the last United States 
PharmacoptBia, and the delay attendant upon its publication, it has been 
deemed advisable to refrain from' the examination of many samples of 
drugs until pharmacists and' physicians have had an opportunity to adapt 
themselves to the numerous changes found in this work. The trials of 
persons sued for violation of the law under which examinations of food 
and drugs are made has shown that this law is defective in some respects, 
and' can be materially improved by additional legislation. Section 14 of 
this act provides that a person producing a warranty in proper form from 
the manufacturer or dealer- from whom' he purchases the article alleged 
to be adulterated, provided that manufacturer or dealer lives within the 
State, "Shall. escape prosecution. This provision is too broad, in that it 
enables retailers to tamper with certain classes of goods while in their 
possession and then rely upon the warranty given by the» wholesaler to 
escape punishment for acts which they themselves have committed; This 
section should be so amendted that the warranty applies only to such 
articles as are packed in a manner which will prevent any person, except 
the one giving the warranty, from* tampering with them or altering their 
condition in any way. Power should be given to the chief and other 
inspectors of the State board of health to confiscate and' destroy articles 
of food and drugs when necessity for so doing arises. Under the act as it 
now stands, only milk can be treated in this way, but it isi very desirable 
that thisi power be extended to include such classes of substances as 
tuberculous or tainted meat, decomposed food of any kind, and dangerous 
drugs, when they are likely to be used in such a manner as to do harm. 
The wording of that portion of the act relative to the labeling of articles 
of food is too indefinite. Food® should be required to be labeled in such 
a manner that the purchaser may easily ascertain from the label exactly 
what is being bought. Misbranding should be specifically prohibited 
under penalty. The provision in section 12, as amended in 1902, requiring 
that samples should be divided into two parts, should be changed. It is 
desirable in many cases to divide the samples into three or more parts, 
and this section should be worded in such a manner that such division 
will be legal. 

Although some action should ultimately be taken regarding the use of 
preservatives in foods, yet it seems inexpedient to attemipt legislation 
in this direction at this time. It is expected that in the near future the 
United' States department of agriculture will define the attitude which the 
national government will take in this direction, and when the stand^ardte 
of the department of agriculture are announced it will be well to secure 
their adoption in this State. In some respects it would be desirable to 
permit courts to use a limited discretion in the amount of penalty imposedi 
upon violators of the law. At times the penalty fixed by law seems to 
infiict unnecessary hardship upon persons convicted; and in other cases 
the penalty is entirely inadequate. Provisions should also be msuie for a 
larger penalty for second and subsequent offences.

Report on the Inspection of Creameries. 

BY GEORGE W. M'GUIRE, CHIEF INSPECTOR OF FOOD AND DRUGS. 



To the Board of Health of the State of New Jersey: 

Gentlemen — One hundred and twenty-six creameries have been in- 
spected during the past year, and d€taile<i recordsi of these inspections 
are now on file. These records show that over three thousandl farmers are 
engaged in supplying these establishments with milk, and that the quan- 
tity handled' reachesi over three hundred thousandi quarts a day. The con- 
ditions reported show that but few creameries are operated in a cleanly 
and satisfactory manner, and some are so conducted as to render the milk 
unfit for distribution, while certain others are conducted with every safe- 
guard' against the dangers incident to careless management. One of the 
most serious features is where the family resides within the creamery 
building, the doors of the dwelling apartments opening Into the rooms 
where milk is received, stored and prepared for market, thus permitting 
free access' to the milk-room by the members of the family and other per- 
sons who happen to be in the building. EJvem the washing of soiled cloth^ 
ing is in some establishmenits carried on in rooms where milk is cooled 
and bottled, while in other places milk-rooms are used at times as play- 
room® for children. In some creameries the milk is pumped from receiv- 
ing vat to shipping can or bottling machine through iron pipes, in some 
instances not more than) three-quarters of an inch in diameter. These 
pipes and the pump become coated on the inside with decomposed milk, 
over which passes the daily supply. In the better class- of creameries the 
pumips and pipes are especially constructed and are easily taken apart for 
cleaning, and the pipes are of large diameter and of short lengths, so as 
to be readily disconmected and cleaned. But few creameries have a per- 
fect system for cooling the milk. The prevailing method is to immerse 
uncovered cans in vats of ice water to the level of the constricted portion 
of the necks. The dirt from the exterior of the cans when received! at the 
creamery is washed off in the vat water, and more or less of this filthy 
water invariably getsi into the milk. While this system of cooling is per- 
mitted, it seems useless to insist upon scrupulous care in otherwise 
handling milk. There are but few -creameries equipped with model cold 
storage roomss. Proprietors claim- that the maintenance of such facilities 
is too expensive, but cold storage rooms should be providedi in every 
creamery. The drainage system of every creamery inspected has been 
carefully examined, and the conditions are fully set forth in the detailed 
reports. In numerous instances leaky drains and rotted wood floors per- 
mit waste fluids to escape beneath the creamery building, saturating the 
ground and causing foul odors to rise. 

Owners of creameries where serious defects in construction exist, on 
being warned, have shown a disposition to make the necessary improve- 
ments. In several creamery buildings new concrete floors' have been laid 
and modern apparatus has: been installed!, and altogether better methods 
in handling milk have been adopted. Doubtless a relnspection of all 
creamery premises during the coming year will result in additional im- 
provements.

Excerpts from the Annual Reports of 

Local Boards of Health for the 

Year ending October ist, 1905. 



Atlantic City. — The health ojffieer furnishes the following in- 
formation concerning the reorganization of the medical inspection 
of the pupils of the public schools : 

Atlantic City, N. J., October 30th, 1905. 
Board of Education, Atlantic City, N. J.: 

Gentlemen — ^As you are aware, there is about to be organized in the 
city of Atlantic City, under the combined auspices of the board of public 
education and the board of health, a systematic medical inspection of the 
pupils attending the public schools-. The success of the enterprise! de- 
pends in< a very great measure upon the co-operation of the principals and 
teachers of the various schools with the medical inspector detailed^ for 
the work. The object of the meddcal inspection of the school children is: 
<a) the Identification of all pupils requiring medical care; (b) the prompt 
exclusion from school of all pupils siifFering from transmissible diseases; 

(c) the exclusion from school, until appropriate medical treatment ha» 
been begun, of all pupils sufFerinig from other than transmissible diseases; 

(d) the detection of defects of sight and hearing, and of deformities that 
may be corrected or improved by medical aid. With information in our 
hands upon the several phases of the subject here indicated, it is hoped 
and; believed that muchi may be done for the health of children in attend^- 
ance upon our schools. It is obviously of fundamental importance to the 
success of these investigations that the work be conducted with the least 
possible disturbance of class routine, and it is believed' that this result can 
be best accomplishedi by observing the following suggestions: A. It is 
desirable that the medical inspector have the use of a room for the exam- 
ination of children. D. The principal of the school and the medical In- 
spector should! agree upon an hour for the inspection, to be chosen with 
due regard to the convenience of each; this hour should be adhered to as 
nearly as circumstanoes will permit. C. The work of the medical in- 
spector will be very much expedited and disturbance of school routine 
minimized through the assistance that can be rendered by the teachers 
in charge of the classes; in this relation it is recommended that the 
teacher set asidte in a particular part of the class-room, or preferably in a 
separate room, every child/ that in her or his opinion needs medical exam?-

inatloni, so that the medical inspector's attention be calledi to these cases 
immediately upon hisi arrival. D. When the routine examination of a 
cla£si seemsf advisable the following plan- of procedure is suggested: The 
medical' inspector shall stand with hisi back to a window, and> the teacher 
will have the pupils pass in single file before him; as- eac^ child passes, 
the medical inspector will examine the eyes, tongue, handsi and hair; the 
conditions found, by him that necessitate medical attention; will be noted' 
diown. by the teacher on cards provided for that purpose; the doctor com- 
municates his diagnosis to the teacher, not by mentioning the name of the 
disease, but by giving its number on the code, since experience has* shown 
that it iEP unwise to let one child know from what disease another is suffer- 
ing; in order to prevent the dissemination of such information a code will 
be furnished both teacher and inspector, on which diseases of special 
ntioment are recorded by number. EI At each inspection the principal of 
the school is requested^ to furnish the inspector with: 1. A list of the 
children who have returned to school after an- absence of one or more 
diays. 2. The names of those ini any way suspected of having contagious 
diseases or of having been in. contact with contagious diseases. 3. The 
names of those who have returned' to school after having been excl-udedv 
F. The inspector will furnish to the principal a list of all children excludied 
from the school, indicating the day from which the exclusion dates; these 
lists will be revised' as the children return to school. G. Bach child; need- 
ing immediate medical care will be given an exclusion card, statin>g< the 
nature of his or her illness and. the date of inspection ; this exclusion card 
will be enclosed in a sealed envelope andi addressed to the parents. 
H. Many of the ailments from which school children' suffer, while calling 
for medical attention, are not of sufficient gravity to justify prolonged 
exclusion from school. In these cases the child should be excluded- only 
until he or she can bring a physician's certificate to the effect that he or 
she is receiving medical care. I. In all cases of exclusion the character 
of medical care to be received by the child is to be decided: by the parents. 
By co-operation between teachers and inspectors, and by this alone, can 
the good that is hoped for be accomplished; it is urged that you assist in 
this work by careful consideration of the plan above outlined an-dt by 
giving us the benefit of any suggestion that in your opinion would improve 
the proposedi service. 

BOAUD OF HEALTH OF ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. 
E3DWAIID GtriON, Health Officer. 

The following notice has beenj sent to all of the principals in the city: 
The foregoing suggestions and regulations from the health officer of this 
city have been unanimously adopted by the board of education, and) I wish 
herewith to inform you that a medical inspector has been appointed for 
each building, and that the same will report to the respective schools 
diaily, according to the following plan: (a) All teachers will be furnished 
with cards to be used in reporting to the principal of the school the names 
of pupils suffering from transmissible diseases; (b) using the above 
cards, teachers will report to the principal each morning, not later than 
half-past nine, the names of pupils who, in their judgment, are suffering 
from some transmissible disease; (c) the principal of each building will 
notify the medical inspector by telephone, not later than ten o'clock each 
morning, of the number of cases reported to her and! the necessity of his 
reporting or not reporting to her building on that particular day; (d) all

LOCAL BOARDS OF HEALTH. 181 

pupils thus reported! will be seated in the principal's; office, or some other 
room designated, until the. arrival of the medical inspector; (e) all cards 
nised) by the teacher in reporting cases to the medical inspector will be 
forwarded to the city superintendent's office at the end of each calendar 
month; (f) a faithful observance to the above suggestions is earnestly 
requested. Respectfully, 

CHAS. B. BOYE3R, 
Supervising Principal of Schools. 

Three lectures will be given to the teachers during the school year, sub- 
jects as follows (subject to change): 1. Recognition of Transmissible 
Diseases. 2. School Hygiene. 3. To be selected. Each inspector will 
make at least one inspection of each room of his school once a week, 
noting ventilation, &c. Snellen's test cards will be furnished to each room, 
and a test of each pupil and a full return of card "A" must be made before 
January 1st of each year. The medical board? will hold a meeting at the 
high school on the first and fourth Wednesday of each month during the 
school year at 4 : 15 p. m. Each inspector will be expected, in the event of 
his absence from the city, to supply a substitute, and each inspector should 
arrange to be within call of his telephone at 10 a. m. Every school-room 
of each) school will be fumigated: by the board of health every two weeks, 
as a precautionary measure. Elachi inspector will be furnished' biweekly 
(or oftener if necessary) a list of contagious diseases appearing in fami- 
lies having children in said inspector's school, or appearing in families in 
the district of said school. The inspector should see that all children of 
an infected house should be kept from school. After a case of contagious 
disease the childi*en will not be admitted to the school until they can 
present a permit from the board of health. 

Ashury Park. — The secretary writes as follows : 

"The total number of deaths in Asbury Park for the year ending October 
1st, 1905, was fifty-one, twenty-six among the resident and twenty-five 
among the non-resident population. The resident population, according 
to the State census of 1905, is 4,526; the death-rate, including all deaths, 
is 11.27; by including the resident deaths only, the death-rate is 5.75, 
which is the lowest death-rate recorded for Asbury Park since 1880. The 
principal causes of death, as reported, were: Endocarditis, seven; apo- 
plexy, six; heart disease, four; accident, three; paralysis, three; bron- 
chitis, three; myocarditis, three; angina pectoris, three. It is a notable 
fact that not one death from tuberculosis occurred in Asbury Park during 
the year. The number of births reported for the year, twenty-seven, is the 
same as that reported for the year 1904, which was the lowest recorded 
since 1880. An effort h4a been made during the year to obtain evidence 
of any neglect on the part of practicing physicians or others to report 
births at which they have professionally attended, and evidence has been 
obtained that some of the practicing physicians are very dilatory in 
making returns of births. Fifty-nine returns of marriages were received 
during the year, which, with the exception of the years 1897 and 1903, is 
the greatest number ever recorded in one year for Asbury Park. Twenty- 
eight cases of infectious diseases have been reported to the board of 
health of Asbury Park during the year, as follows: Diphtheria, seven; 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



182 KEPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

©caxlet fever, ten ; typhoid fever, two; measles, niae. Tlie first case of diph- 
theria reported was an adult, fifty-two years of age; three cultures were 
sent to the State laboratory of hygiene with negative results. The second 
case was a child twelve years of age, who attended- the public school; the 
patient had been sleeping away from home with a friend who, it was later 
learned, had been affected with a very sore throat and had left the city 
prior to the date of attack of the patient. The third case was a child 
seven years of age in a family of Hebrews, eight in number, who came 
from New York on May 10th, 1905, and occupied a one-story building 
recently vacated as a fish market, floor of cement and size sixteen by 
thirty-two feet, in which they resided and conducted a tailoring business. 
Upon their arrival in the city the child, being ill, was taken to a physician, 
who diagnosed the case as diphtheria, which diagnosis was confirmed by 
a specimen sent to the State laboratory of hygiene. The fourth and fifth 
cases were a sister and brother of case No. 3. The sixth case was a 
child five years of age, who had recently arrived from New York State. 
Case No. 7 was a young man twenty-eight years of age, who had been in 
the city a short time, stopping at one of the hotels. In cases No. 6 and 
No. 7, successive specimens sent to the State laboratory failed to confirm 
the clinical diagnosis. The first case of scarlet fever was a child four 
years of age; the infection no doubt was from relatives of the family who 
resided in another sanitary district, in which family several cases of the 
disease existed preceding the date, of attack of the patient. In case No. 
2, a child seven years of age, the source of infection was not learned; the 
case was not discovered, it having been of a very mild type and no phy- 
sician being called in attendance, until case No. 3 was reported to the 
board] of health, a brother of case No. 2, six years of age, who died three 
days after date of attack. Case No. 5 was an adult, nineteen years of age; 
the source of infection was not learned. Case No. 6 was a child about 
nine years of age ; rumors were received at the office of the board of health 
that the child in question was reported to be affected by scarlet fever; 
upon inquiring of the attending physician he stated that there was posi- 
tively, in his opinion, no truth in said reports, and that the child was 
suffering from tonsilitis; seven days later other rumors were received 
stating that said child was desquamating, and at a meeting of the board 
of health held that evening it was ordered that a medical examination be 
made of said child; two physicians were engaged to conduct such an 
examination, with the result that each of the physicians reported that, 
"In their opinion, the said child was in a desquamative stage of scar- 
letina." Case No. 7 was a child three years of age; the family was served 
with groceries from a grocer in an adjoining sanitary district, who was 
in the habit of fondling the child when he delivered goods, and it was 
learned that a child in his family had been affected with a similar disease. 
Case No. 8 was a sister of case No. 7. In case No. 9 the source of infection 
was not learned. Case No. 10 occurred in a family which had been resid- 
ing in Asbury Park but a short time preceding the date of attack. The 
first case of typhoid fever was an adult who came from Washington, 
D. C, and was taken ill twelve days after arrival in Asbury Park. The 
second case was an adult fifty years of age, vho was taken ill about thirty 
days after arrival in this city; the source of infection in this case was 
not learned. The cases of measles were scattered through the year and 
distributed in different parts of the city. During the early part of Feb- 
ruary it was learned that diphtheria and scarlet fever prevailed to some

183 



extent in the adjoining sanitary districts, and it was also learned that a 
number of caaes of ton-silitis existed in Asbury Park, whereupon the follow- 
ing communication wasisent to the principal of public schools, in order that 
the board might obtain early information of any suspected case: "Diph- 
theria and scarlet fever are known to prevail to some considerable extent 
in the adjoining sanitary districts, at least one death from each of the 
above-named diseases having occurred, and two cases of diphtheria have 
recently been reported in Asbury Park; we are also informed that a 
number of cases of so-called tonsilitis exist in Asbury Park. In view of 
the above facts extra efforts should be made to weed out any case of sore 
throat among those in attendance at the public school, and any such case 
should be excluded until it can be positively ascertained that it is not of 
an infectious nature."

184 REPOKT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

During the year the ladies of the Present Day Club of Asbury Park have 
furnished window screens for the windows and doors, window shades, 
cooking utensils, dishes and a hot air heater for the municipal hospital 
building, and also a cement floor in cellar and a hot air heater for the 
caretaker's cottage on the municipal hospital grounds, at a cost of $672.12. 
The present pavilion has been used during the past year for diphtheria, 
five cases having been received and cared for at said pavilion. 

The search on private premises: for breeding places for mosquitoes was 
continued during the year, and thirty premises were found upon which 
mosquitoes were breeding in miscellaneous receptacles, such as rain-water 
barrels, horse-drinking troughs, wooden tubs, tin cans, &c. 

During the year the board has enforced the ordinance declaring the 
construction, maintenance, use or continuance of any privy vault, or other 
receptacle in or upon the ground, for human excrement In such manner 
that the filthy conitents' thereof may be accessible to flies, to be a nuisance, 
with the result that eighty-six privy vaults have been cleaned, filled with 
earth and their use abandoned, and there are but ten such structures now 
remaining in the city, and for four of these plumbing plans are now on 
flle for the construction of the plumbing work necessary to secure aban- 
donment of the vaults. 

On several occasions during the summer an inspector of the State board 
of health collected samples of milk for analysis in this city. Preservatives 
were found in a number of the samples and a few of the samples were 
found to be below the standard in solids required by law. Prosecution by 
the State board of health followed in each case. 

There are but two premises in Asbury Park on which dwellings are 
located which are not connected with the public sewer system, neither of 
which is occupied'. During the year the city has adopted a change in the 
method of discharging the sewage into the ocean. The two outlets here- 
tofore in use have been connected and a pipe laid into the ocean twelve 
hundred feet from shore, where all the sewage from Asbury Park is now 
discharged. This change was made as an experiment, and the pipes have 
been so connected and laid that a settling or precipitating basin can 
readily be constructed, and which it is proposed to construct should the 
present method prove ineffective in preventing the sewage from flowing 
upon the shore or the bathing grounds. 

During the past summer the common council contracted with the East 
Jersey Coast Water Company to supplement the water-supply of Asbury 
Park, which formerly had been drawn wholly from artesian wells owned 
by the city. On August 9th a connection was made between the mains of 
said company and Asbury Park, and I am informed by the superintendent 
of the department of water and sewers of Asbury Park that about one 
hundred and flfty thousand gallons of water were received daily to Sep- 
tember 5th. The East Jersey Coast Water Company takes water from 
Kisner's pond, which is supplied by Jumping brook and its tributaries. 
There seemed to be some question as to the purity of water taken from 
Klsner's pond, and a motion was passed at a meeting of the board of 
health held September 22d, 1905, requesting information from the State 
board of health in relation to the condition of this water shed. A copy of 
a report of inspection of Jumping brook and its tributaries showed numer- 
ous sources of direct and indirect contamination along its borders.

LOCAL BOAKDS OF HEALTH. 185 

A new contract for three years for the removal and disposal of garbage, 
dead animals and rubbish from Asbury Park was made by the city during 
the year with new contractors. By reference to the citizens' complaint 
table it will be seen that the number of complaints against this service 
are far in excess of any previous year. The following report of the in- 
spector of the board of health describes the method of disposal: "To the 
Board of Health of the City of Asbury Park: On August 17th, 1905, an 
inspection of the premdses of Messrs. Redfern & Koenemund, garbage and 
rubbish contractors of the city of Asbury Park, located near Corlies 
avenue, about two miles from the city* limits, on the borders of a brook 
flowing into Shark river, showed the following conditions: The disposal 
plant consists of two steam boilers, eight open wooden vats, about sixteen 
and a half feet by four and a half feet by three feet in size, holding about 
eight cartloads or about two hundred and thirty-three cubic feet of garbage 
each, in which garbage is cooked by steam liberated from perforated pipes 
at the bottom of the vats, located under a shed, with an earth floor. There 
are eight additional open wooden vats of same size as those above referred 
tOi into which the garbage is drawn after cooking; the latter stand along 
the brook. Garbage when received at said plant is shoveled from the 
vehicles into the open wooden vats under the shed. The garbage is cooked 
in these vats, as above stated, for the purpose of recovering the grease. 
The residue remaining after the grease has been taken off is disposed of 
by selling to farmers for hog food, and the refuse not removed by the 
farmers is carted by the contractors to the county farm and dumped upon 
the surface of the ground, where, at the time of this inspection, it covered 
a space of approximately eight hundred feet long by fifteen feet wide, 
where it is left to decompose. This mass of decomposing organic matter 
serves as a breeding place for flies, which swarm about the place in count- 
less numbers. The ground beneath and around the vats in which the 
garbage is cooked and the residue is stored is grossly polluted from leak- 
age from the vats and slopping over from the vehicles carting the material 
to amd from the place, in loading and unloading. The plant, as stated, 
stands upon the borders of a running stream which flows into Musquash 
cove. Shark river, where oysters are grown and which is receiving the 
pollution from the plant, and into which the washings from the carts and 
wagons flow. At the time of this inspection there were approximately 
one hundred cubic yards of uncooked garbage upon the ground, probably 
due to the lack of facilities to cook the material as fast as it is received. 
The method of unloading the carts upon arrival at the plant is by shovel- 
ing the garbage from the carts into the vats, during which time consider- 
able culling is done to remove tin cans and that portion of garbage 
containing little or no grease; this manner of unloading and culling con- 
sumes considerable time, while dumping the carts would require but a 
few seconds; at the time of this inspection three loaded vehicles were 
waiting to be unloaded, thus losing more time and preventing the use of 
the carts to their full capacity in removing garbage from the city. The 
specifications of the contract require that rubbish be burned daily in open 
fires. At the time of this inspection an accumulation of unburned rubbish, 
approximately seventy-five hundred cubic feet, was stored in a hollow, also 
draining into the stream above referred to, and an employe at work culling 
this rubbish stated that no burning had been done for two or three weeks; 
this accumulation ranged in depth from a few inches to about fifteen feet.

186 EEPOET OF THE BOARI^ OF HEALTH. 

and unless burned daily, as is required by the specifications, it becomes 
wet and sodden, and a large portion of the combustible material will not 
be consumed. Rubbish contains material more detrimental to the public 
health, when not properly disposed of, than garbage. Flies were also 
swarming about this accumulation of rubbish in countless numbers, and 
it evidently afforded them a very favorable breeding place. Complaints 
were received from the inspector of the Neptune township board of health, 
in which township the garbage is disposed of, that garbage taken from the 
rendering plant of Messrs. Redfern & Koenemund by farmers isi creating a 
nuisance, and the odors from same are very obnoxious; and also that the 
loaded rubbish carts are driven through the township without covering, 
thereby permitting loose rubbish to escape and litter the streets and roads. 
On August 18th, 1905, in company with said inspector, an investigation of 
the places complained of, and of several others, showed that garbage taken 
from this place is disposed of by farmers by feeding to hogs. On a number 
of the places the pens in which the hogs are kept indicate frequent moving, 
and practically no odor was noticeable at the time of this inspection; upon 
others, from the condition of the pens, they are evidently not moved, and 
the hogs were wallowing in the garbage and muck to a depth varying 
from an inch to three or four feet; in the cases of greater depth, stable 
manure or sod is placed in the accumulation, which prevents the hogs 
from sinking. At one place approximately two hundred cubic yards of 
garbage has been composted, and the greater portion of the compost is 
covered with a few inches of stable manure; considerable odors are 
emitted from this accumulation, and it will undoubtedly prove a very great 
nuisance when uncovered, which will probably be done during the coming 
spring, as was proven a few years ago in the McTague case, where the 
garbage, after lying from summer until spring in a compost, wasi found 
to have decomposed but very little, and the odors emanating therefrom 
were so great in Asbury Park thet several citizens in Asbury Park lodged 
complaints with the board of health, and the inspector traced, by the odors, 
the nuisance to the place named, about two miles distant. The odors from 
the places where the hog pens are seldom, if ever, changed is also quite 
obnoxious. The rubbish carts, when loaded, are very poorly covered, and 
in many instances only a small part of the load is covered at all, thereby 
permitting loose articles on the top of the load, such as loose paper, &c., to 
blow or fall therefrom and litter the streets or roads over which they are 
carried." 

The cost of removal and disposal of these waste products is considerably 
lower than for any preceding year since 1899, when the supervision of the 
removal and disposal of garbage, rubbish and dead animals was placed 
under the control of the board of health. The specifications contained in 
the new contract, which was for three years, from June 15th, 1905, provide 
that the contractors shall pay the city the sum of fifteen per centum per 
annum on the cost price of all the vehicles and supplies furnished by the 
city and used by them in the work. The Contractors made a proposition 
to the common council that if they would waive that portion of the con- 
tract requiring them to pay fifteen per centum per annum on the cost price 
of the vehicles owned by the city and used by them in the work, and 
extend the contract for a period of two years at the same price, the con- 
tractors would furnish all necessary vehicles to do the work and place the 
fifteen old vehicles owned by the city in first-class condition, which agree-

ment the common council has entered into. When the board of health 
learned of the above contemplated contract, a protest against the change 
of this contract was made, which protest is as follows: "Whereas, the 
board of health of Asbury Park are informed that the common council of 
said city contemplate entering into a contract with Messrs. Redfern & 
Koenemund, garbage and rubbish contractors for the said city, to waive 
that portion of section 16 of the specifications for the collection, removal 
and disposal of garbage, dead animals and rubbish from said city, to wit, 
'the contractor shall pay to the common council the sum of fifteen per 
centum per annum, in equal monthly payments, on the cost of all vehicles, 
harness and supplies furnished the contractor by the city for use in carry- 
ing out the requirements of these specifications,' in lieu of which it is 
contemplated to extend the contract for a term of two years after the 
expiration of the present contract, the contractors agreeing to furnish five 
additional garbage carts before June 1st, 1906, and to repair the carts now 
owned by the city free of cost to the city. Whereas, no provision in the 
said contemplated contract provides for the said contractors to furnish 
any additional rubbish carts which are needed in the work. Whereas, it 
has been shown to your honorable body, in a report from this board under 
date of August 14th, 1905, that the ten garbage carts and two of the rub- 
bish carts can be repaired and placed in good condition at an approximate 
cost of $240, and by purchasing five new garbage and three new rubbish 
carts, at a cost of $800, the city would then own all the carts which it is 
believed to be needed for this service, thus assuring a uniform service and 
good appearance. Therefore be it Resolved, that your honorable body be 
requested to reconsider the changing of the said contract, and require the 
said contractors to continue their work under the present contract, and 
pay to the city the sum of fifteen per centum per annum on the cost of all 
vehicles furnished said contractors by the city. Resolved, that your hon- 
orable body be requested to cause the ten garbage and two rubbish carts 
to be repaired as outlined in a report from this board dated August 14th, 
1905 (above referred to), reimbursing the contractors for the cost of the 
repairs which they have made to the carts which were due to wear, and 
purchase five additional garbage and three additional rubbish carts like 
those now owned by the city and in use by the contractors.'* The service 
rendered by the garbage and rubbish contractors during the past summer 
has not been up to the standard of preceding years, noticeably in that the 
garbage carts have frequently been filled too full, thereby permitting the 
contents to fall upon the streets; an increasing number of complaints 
has been received from householders of neglect on the p^rt of the con- 
tractors to render daily service; rubbish has been carelessly gathered, the 
carts overloaded and the streets littered with paper; garbage and rubbish 
carts have often been reported driven through the streets without covers, 
and the method of final disposal of these waste products has been con- 
ducted with a view solely to recover the valuable parts contained therein, 
regardless of the nuisances created.

Since the organization of the board of health of Asbury Park, in 1880, 
individual sanitary records of properties have been kept. The original 
•style of bound books was replaced by a loose-leaf system. A separate 
pliable leather cover is provided for each street, each block is divided and 
indexed by the first number of the block, and a record can be inserted at 
any place. The system has been found to be very convenient and complete. 
A number of changes was also made in the record blank. The following 
is a record of a property made during the year, which will give an idea of 
the value of these records. Owners, contemplating purchasers or lessees 
of property frequently consult these records to learn its condition, and 
many owners are zealous that their property shall be kept in such a con- 
dition that no unfavorable report can be recorded in these records by the 
board of health. 

During the winter months many complaints were received from citizens 
of Asbury Park by the common council and the board of health against 
the unclean and unsightly condition of Wesley lake, many claiming the 
condition to be injurious and dangerous to health, in that the stream flows 
through a portion of Neptune township where hog-pens, cow-yards, privy 
vaults, &c., are located upon its borders, and drainage from houses flow 
into the stream, and the washings from the streets in Asbury Park and 
Ocean Grove also flow therein, thereby making it unsightly, obnoxious 
and dangerous to health. Frequent inspections have been made of this

lake, and no mosquito larvae have ever been found therein, the many fish 
which abound in its waters eating up the larvae, thereby preventing their 
developing intp the mosquito. The waters of this lake flow into the ocean, 
and is not used in any way for potable purposes. The common council 
decided to remove the most unsightly portion of the sediment of the bed 
of that part of Wesley lake in Asbury Park, and proceeded to execute the 
work; after removing a few cubic yards of the material the owner stopped 
them from performing the work. The common council then passed a 
resolution requiring that the board of health should clean Wesley lake 
and present bill to owner. At a meeting of the board of health held Feb- 
ruary 17th, 1905, it was, by resolution, agreed that the board has no Jurist 
diction in the matter, not being able to prove that the present condition 
of Wesley lake is dangerous to the public health, and that the board of 
health does not consider that it can take any action in the matter. Fol- 
lowing is an opinion by S. A. Patterson, Esq., the. attorney of the board: 
"Mr. Obert, secretary of your board, has submitted to me the question as 
to the power of the board of health to cause Wesley lake to be cleaned, 
and also whether the expense of cleaning the lake could be recovered from 
the lake owners. I beg to advise you that, under section 13 of the act of 
1887, page 93, local boards of health have the power to inquire into any 
nuisance known to exist which may be injurious to the health of the public, 
and cause the same to be abated. Section 14 provides that in case such 
nuisance be found on private property, the board shall cause notice thereof 
to be given to the owners to remove and abate the same, at the expense of 
said owner, within such time as the board may deem proper, and if such 
owner fails to do this the board may proceed to abate the nuisance and 
then recover by an action of debt the expenses incurred by the. board in 
such abatement from any person who shall have caused such nuisance. 
Therefore, the first thing to be determined by the board of health before 
taking any proceedings in this matter is to establish to a reasonable cer- 
tainty that such lake is a nuisance — ^th&t is, that it is dangerous to public 
bealtli. Second. This must be done on notice to the owner, so that he 
may have an opportunity to appear before the board of health and answer 
the evidence that may be presented in the matter. Third. The fact that 
the board of health concludes after this examination that the lake in 
question is a nuiscuice does not necessarily end the matter, for in the 
legal' proceeddngs brought to recover the expense incurred by the board 
the owner could deny that there was ever any ground for the abatement 
of the nuisance in question, and deny that any dangerous nuisance ever 
existed in the lake. In case the board did not desire to abate the nuisance 
in, a summary manner, if it be proven to be a nuisance, a bill in chancery 
could, be flledl by the board of health to accomplish that purpose. A 
private individual can also institute proceedings in chancery for the abate- 
ment of any nuisance. Finally, the solution of the inquiry will depend' 
upon the ability of the board of health to prove that the lake, in its pres*- 
ent condition, is such a nuisance as is injurious to the health of the public. 
Unless this fundamental fact can be shown, your board would have no 
jurisdiction in the matter."

190 KEPOKT OF THE BOAED OF HEALTH. 

No action having been taken by the owner of said lake to abate the 
alleged nuisance, it was ordered, at a meeting of the board of health held 
April 25th, 1905, at which time bids were received for cleaning the bed of 
Wesley lake, that the lowest bidder be awarded the contract to remove the 
flltliy accumulation in that portion of Wesley lake, in Asbury Park, de- 
clared to be a nuisance by the board of health at a meeting held April 4th, 
1905, which work was done as per contract. The expense of removing the 
sediment in the bed of the lake, as above referred to, amounted to $595, 
which amount was paid by the board of health from a special appropriation 
made by the common council. After the completion of the work a bill was 
tendered to the owner of the lake for the costs Incurred by the board of 
health in abating the alleged nuisance, which bill has not yet been paid. 

Harrisqn. — Under date of August 2d, 1905, the following reso- 
lution was forwarded to His Excellency Edward C. Stokes, and by 
him it was referred to the State board of health for report : 

Resolvedj That the common council of Harrison protest against the pro- 
posed action of the New York authorities in shipping consumptive patients 
across the Erie ferries and into the Erie railroad station and to be taken 
to Otisville, N. Y., in the trains in which many commuters of this section 
travel. While this common council realizes the great work of New York 
city in providing an institution for the care of people with the dread dis- 
ease, we also feel justified in protesting against that which will cause the 
disease to spread among the people of this section. And be it further 

Resolved, That Town Counsel Michael T. Barrett be instructed to file a 
protest with Governor Stokes and the State board of health expressing our 
views against the present plan by the health authorities of New York city. 

True copy. 

B. P. WALSH, T. C. 

The following communication was sent to the Governor : 

August 4th, 1905. 
Hon. Edward C. Stokes, Governor, Trenton, N. J.: 

Deab Sir — The letter from Michael T. Barrett, Esq., dated August 2d, 
1905, enclosing resolution of the common council of the town of Harrison, 
and transmitted to this ofllce by you with a request that a report be made 
on the matter referred to in the resolution, has been received. 

While I am not authorized to speak for the State board of health in 
reference to the subject of the resolution, it is my personal view that the 
proposal to prohibit the transportation of consumptive patients from New 
York city to the sanitarium to be established in Otisville, New York, in 
the pass'eniger cars of railtoads traversing the State of New Jersey, is not 
justified by any risks of infection which will be incurred by fellow-passen- 
gers, for a capable attendant will, we are informed, accompany each group 
of patients sent from that city to the institution, and the patients will be 
provided with spit cups and be instructed concerning the danger of spread- 
ing the disease by careless and unclean habits. Under these circumstances

there will be far less probability of communicating the disease to other 
persons than at present exists in public conveyances, for it is undoubtedly 
true that a considerable percentage of all travelers are affected with pul- 
monary tuberculosis, and many of these persons expectorate upon the floor 
and use the public drinking cups without knowledge of the danger of 
spreading the infection which these thoughtless acts involve. 

Pulmonary tuberculosis is usually a chronic affection, and it cannot be 
dealt with as we deal with scarlet fever, diphtheria and other acute dis- 
eases, for the isolation and quarantine which is effective and reasonable 
in restricting the spread of these affections would be barbarous when 
applied in the case of consumption, for the duration of the isolation would 
be equivalent to unlimited seclusion. Moreover, enough has been learned 
of the manner in which consumption is disseminated to warrant the view 
that a sufferer from this disease, when he shall have been properly in- 
structed, and provided he is considerate of the safety of his associates, 
need not spread the disease to other persons. In New Jersey a public 
institution is now in the course of erection for the reception and instruc- 
tion of incipient cases of pulmonary tuberculosis, and every line of railroad 
in the State will, in the near future, be called upon to transport persons 
from their homes to the State sanitarium for consumptives. Inasmuch as 
it is altogether unnecessary to provide separate conveyances for these indi- 
viduals, it would be very unreasonable to make such a demand, and the 
whole duty of sanitary authorities will have been done, so far as the man- 
agement of this class of travelers in concerned, if it shall be required that 
every individual who is known to be infected with this disease shall, before 
he travels in a public conveyance, be carefully advised in regard to 
methods by which the disease is spread and provided with a suitable 
pocket receptacle for sputa. When any passenger in a public conveyance 
affected with pulmonary tuberculosis shall wantonly or carelessly endanger 
the health of other travelers it will then be in order to take more vigorous 
measures! thani those above suggested) for the protection) of the publio 
health. Very respectfully, 

HENRY MITCHELL, 
Secretary.

Mordclair. — The health officer of the town of Montclair writes 
as follows: 

"During the year just enid'edi there has been no epidemic of any kind, and 
there have been but five deaths from communicable diseases, exclusive of 
pneumonia and tuberculosis. Two of these deaths have been from scarlet 
fever and three from typhoid fever. The total number of cases of com- 
municable diseases reported during this period has been but sixty per cent. 
of the number reported during the previous year. Nearly all buildings on 
the line of the sewers are now connected, and much time has been spent 
in securing abolishment of the privies. The progress made in this direc-

Plainfield, — The health officer of the city of Plainfield writes, 
in part, as follows, for the year ending December 31st, 1904:

200 KEPORT OF THE BOAED OF HEALTH. 

While the work for the past year has to a great extent been of a routine 
nature, two problems, very important to the health and improvement of 
our city, were investigated!. These were — first, a sanitary survey of our 
city; second, a municipal collection and disposal of the garbage of 
our city. A sanitary survey was started in 1904, but owing to the small 
amount of money that could be used, the work was not completed. I 
would strongly urge that the money necessary to complete a sanitary 
survey of every house in Plainfield be obtained. A study of the tables and 
statistics will show the great need to the health of our city of continuing 
this work. The question of obtaining a proper collection and disposal of 
the garbage of the city has been thoroughly discussed in previous reports. 
I would, however, recommend the adoption of some system before the 
coming summer of 1905. Our estimated population for 1904 is 16,750. 
This estimate is based on the census reports for the past ten years, and is 
probably very low. There have been 286 deaths recorded, which represents 
a death-rate of 17.07 per thousand population. This is a much higher 
death-rate than usual, and is due in a great measure to the large number 
of deaths of elderly people. As can be seen in the table below, seventy- 
five of the 286 deaths were among those over sixty years of age. The fol- 
lowing is a comparison of this death rate of 17.07 with those of the past 
seven years: 

Year. Population. Number death®. Rate. 

1897 14,330 227 15.84 

1898 14,670 218 14.85 

1899 15,020 229 15.25 

1900 15,369 284. . . , 18.48 

1901 15,700 255 16.24 

1902 16,000 257 16.06 

1903 16,400 261 15.91 

1904 16,750 286 17.07 

There were 338 births reported in 1904. This represents a birth-rate of 
20.18 per thousand. There were sixteen still-births reported during the 
year 1904; of these, nine were male and seven female; two were white and 
six colored, giving a rate of 0.96 per thousand. During the year there 
were 125 marriages, of which 104 were white and twenty-one colored. This 
gives a rate of 7.46 per thousand. During the year 1904, 387 cases of com- 
municable diseases were reported, fifty-eight of which resulted in death. 
The following table shows the number of cases of different diseases re- 
ported during the year:

The city has been remarkably free from scarlet fever during the past^. 
year. But thirty-seven cases were reported, with one death. The cases 
were fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, and the majority could 
be traced to no definite source. The number of cases of diphtheria re- 
ported during 1904 was only what would be expected in a city the size of 
Plainfield. There were fifty-seven cases reported, four of which resulted 
in death. This is a marked contrast to the number of cases reported 
last year. But twenty-six cases of chicken-pox were reported, with no 
deaths, during the year. During the past year we had a mild epidemic 
of measles, 171 cases being reported ; none of these cases resulted in death. 
The cases were almost wholly confined to school children, and the large 
number was undoubtedly due to some child attending school while suffer- 
ing from the disease in a mild form and infecting others. It is a most 
difficult disease to control, because of its highly infectious character, and 
more especially because it is contagious in the early stages, before the 
child or its parents are aware of the nature of the disease. There has 
been a slight increase in the number of cases of typhoid fever during the 
year. There were thlrty-etght cases reported, with nine deaths — a mor- 
tality of 23.7 per cent, which, though high, is somewhat less than the 
mortality of last yean A great many of these cases were from among 
people who had just returned from their summer vacation. The source 
of a large percentage was definitely traced outside of the city. Much 
trouble was experienced during the year in having cases of tuberculosis 
promptly reported. There were fifty-nine cases, with forty-four deaths,, 
reported. Such a record is undoubtedly incomplete, and shows that the 
law requiring tuberculosis, to be reported' is mot obeyed). We hope dniriug 
the coming year to more fully control this disease, and prevent, if possible, 
its spreading. A large percentage of the increase of deaths for the year 
is due to this disease. There was one case of small-pox reported in the 
city during the year, but as we were well equipped, the disease was readily 
handled, and although the exposures from this case were numerous, no 
secondary cases developed. The case was reported on January 19th, in 
the person of a colored man living at 770 East Second street. The patient 
was a barber employed in one of the barber shops of the city, and had 
worked for the first two days of his illness, thereby exposing a great 
number of people. The disease developed rapidly and proved to be most 
severe. The patient was removed to our isolation hospital, from which, 
after a teni weeks' illnies®, he was discharged as cured. The barber shop in 
which the patient worked was closed for two days while everything was 
being cleaned. All instruments, cups, fixtures, &c., were sterilized, and 
when this was done the whole place was thoroughly disinfected. Our 
usual methods of wholesale vaccination of persons exposed and thorough 
disinfection were carried out with very good success. The source of 
infection in this case could not be positively determined, but it was prob- 
ably due to a drummer representing the National Barbers' Supply Com- 
pany, "who came from Philadelphia, where small-pox was prevalent. This 
man was in the barber shop about two weeks before the outbreak of the 
disease. In view of the widespread exposures from the above case of 
small-pox, free vaccination was offered to the public. Only twenty-three 
persons availed themselves of this privilege, however. But, considering 
the large number of persons vaccinated two years ago, the small number 
of applications was not so surprising.

202 KEPOET OF THE BOAKD OF HEALTH. 

There was a change in the past year of the source of the ice-supply of 
our city. During the season of 1904 the ice sold in the city came from 
four difterent sources. Two were artificial and two natural ices. The 
artificial ices were manufactured by the Plainfield Hygeia Ice Company 
and the Elizabeth Ice Company. The natural ices came from Watchung 
lake and Little Gap, Carbon county, Pa. 

The question of collecting and disposing of the garbage of our city, 
which has in the last few years become of such vital importance, has been 
thoroughly investigated during the years of 1903 and 1904. Reports were 
made by the board of health to the common council, with the result that 
a joint committee from the common council and the board of health was 
appointed to make further investigation and to report its findings to the 
common council. The present means of garbage collection, besides being 
most unhealthful and unsanitary, is also expensive. The collectors are 
private individuals, licensed by the board of health to carry on the busi- 
ness. At the present time there are nine — two women, four white and 
three colored men, who use ten wagons in the collection. The board 
attempts to regulate by ordinance the kind of vehicle to be used in the 
transportation of the garbage through the streets of the city, and to pre- 
scribe the frequency of collection, but the power of the board is very 
limited, and consequently much annoyance results to both the public and 
the board of health. The garbage collectors are confined in no way to 
routes, and because they have the whole city as a field for their business, 
the citizens are unnecessarily subjected many times a day to the sight of 
these wagons and to the odors emanating from them. If this work were 
done by the city in a systematic way, only four wagons at the most would 
be needed, and these wagons could always be in a sanitary condition. 
That this method of collection is an expensive one is shown by the follow- 
ing list of prices of the average collector: Medium size can (collector 
furnishing can), 75 cents per month or $9 per year; medium size can 
(householder furnishing can), 60 cents per month or $6 per year; large 
size can, $1 per month or $12 per year. 

It is estimated that over $12,000 is spent yearly for the removal, at 
Irregular intervals, of the refuse from les-s* than one-third of the housies. 
The present method of the disposal of the garbage is also so unsatisfactory 
that it is hardly necessary to show the need of an improvement The 
garbage is now fed to hogs on farms situated in all directions from Plain- 
field. The farms are a nuisance and a menace to the health of the citizens 
of our suburban districts and neighboring towns, and Plainfield has no 
right to subject them to the stench emanating from the hog pens and from 
the garbage which is hauled there, a goodly portion of which the hogs 
will not eat. The cost, as estimated by the joint committee, of the collec- 
tion and disposal of the entire garbage of the city is $6,000 a year. A 
thorough system of collection would necessitate three single-horse metal 
carts with six men, two men to each cart. That the general public is most 
anxious for the city to take up this work is shown by the response to a 
circular letter sent to nearly a thousand of the leading citizens. Of 423 
replies, 400 were in favor and twenty-three against a municipal collection 
and disposal system. The joint committee made an exhaustive and thor- 
ough study of the problem, and in a report of their findings to the common 
council unanimously made the following resolutions: "First. That the 
land and building formerly owned by the Plainfield Sanitary Company, 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



LOCAL BOAEDS OF HEALTH. 203 

situated on Dunellen avenue, at the head of DeKalb avenue, be purchased, 
and the crematory at present located in the above building be put in 
working order. Second. That a thorough system of garbage collection be 
established, the necessary wagons, horses and equipment be purchased. 
To do this work it will require three single-horse metal carts and six men. 
The garbage can then be collected from each house in our city every other 
day." As a result of the report of the joint committee, the land and build- 
ings above mentioned, valued at $12,000 to $15,000, were purchased by the 
city at a cost of $2,100. Now that we have gone so far in this work, I 
should strongly urge its completion — both from a sanitary and economical 
standpoint — so that by the coming summer we could have a complete 
municipal collection and disposal system installed. 

One of the most important branches of the work of this board was the 
starting, during the summer of 1904, of a thorough house-to-house inspec- 
tion. One extra inspector was employed, and the work was carried on for 
two and a half months. In this time nearly 800 houses were inspected, 
covering those sections of the city bounded by Park avenue, East Second, 
Richmond and East Sixth streets, and Park avenue. West Second street, 
Grant avenue and West Third street. This is the first time that a house- 
to-house inspection has been made in Plainfield, and the results show the 
great need of a continuance of this work and of having every house in the 
city inspected. The most noticeable feature, from a sanitary standpoint, 
was the large number of privy vaults and cesspools found. The majority 
of the houses were connected with the sewer, but in most cases a privy 
vault was maintained. On 481 of the 800 properties inspected privy vaults 
were found. These were, in every case where the property was on the line 
with the sewer, ordered cleaned and abolished. 

The total number of nuisances investigated during the year was ninety- 
eight. The most important causes for complaints were: First, garbage 
and refuse; second, unclean vaults. As in previous years, the garbage and 
refuse accumulating in the back yards has been the cause of many just 
complaints. The only way to relieve the citizens of this nuisance is to 
have the city remove the garbage and refuse from the back yards regu- 
larly. A continuance and completion of the house-to-house inspection will 
rid the city of the vast number of privy vaults, and consequently the 
source of any complaints of odors emanating from them. There is no 
excuse for the existence of so many privy vaults in a city so well provided 
with sewers as Plainfield, and every one should be abolished. 

During the past few years there has been a constantly increasing de- 
mand for disinfection; where once it was difficult to obtain the co-opera- 
tion of the householders in this work, they now, of their own accord, ask 
for disinfection. This is due to two causes: First, the householder has 
come to realize the necessity of disinfection as a safeguard against disease; 
and second, modem methods enable disinfection to be done without injury 
to furniture or fabric, while at one time many things in a house were 
ruined by fumigation. Formaldehyde was, as in previous years, used as 
a disinfectant. An entire new equipment of generators was purchased 
the early part of the year. These generators were thoroughly tested before 
being bought and found very effective. They are smaller and consequently 
easier to handle than the old style, but the general principle on which 
they are made, t. 6., the production of formaldehyde in a gaseous state 
from ordinary wood alcohol, is the same as in the old generator. During 
the coming year we hope to make disinfection compulsory after deaths 
from tuberculosis. This will mean an increased amount of disinfection, 
but it will help to check any spread of that dreaded disease.

204 EEPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

The large number of sewer connections during the year, ordered on 
account of the house-to-house inspection, made a great deal of work for 
the plumbers, and consequently more for the board. Much trouble was 
experienced on account of the delay of the plumbers in finishing their 
work. One plumber had nine different pieces of work, started as far back 
as May, 1904, still under way on December 31st During the coming year 
the plumbers will be required to complete work without any unnecessary- 
delay. One hundred and forty-three plumbing plans were filed during the 
year. One prosecution was made during the year for a violation of our 
plumbing ordinances. 

After three years of unceasing effort to secure a clean and pure milk- 
supply for Plainfield, it is felt that a certain amount of success has been 
attained. The milk sold in Plainfield to-day is cleaner and of better 
quality than ever before, and it comes from cleaner and better dairies. 
The man who retails milk in our city realizes that it is impossible to 
market an unclean, impure milk, simply because the public will not buy 
it when a rich, clean milk can be obtained at the same price. The dairy- 
men have learned something of the modem successful dairy methods, and 
realize that to produce a clean, pure milk their stables must be clean and 
well ventilated, cattle must be healthy, well fed and well cared for; that 
there must be a good, pure water-supply, and that absolute clean methods 
must be used in the handling and transporting of the milk. They are also 
beginning to realize the effect that bacteria have on milk. They know 
that to produce a milk low in bacteria, besides having clean methods, a 
milk must be thoroughly cooled, stored at a low temperature, and deliv- 
ered to the customer also at a low temperature. The standard of cleanli- 
ness adopted by boards of health and milk commissions throughout the 
country has been the number of bacteria per cubic centimeter of the milk. 
A large number, of bacteria in a milk is a sure sign of dirt. It may be 
through carelessness of milkers, dirty cows, dusty stables, or improper 
cooling or storing of the milk. Some market milks contain from two to 
three milUon bacteria per cubic centimeter. A pure milk should contain 
not more than 30,000 per cubic centimeter. The legal standard for milk 
in New Jersey requires that it shall contain not less than 12 per centum 
total milk solids, and but few samples of milk have been taken durins 
the past year that fell below this standard. The record of the dairymen 
in this respect has been excellent. During the past year several new 
dairies of a very high standard have been added to the list of those sup- 
plying milk in Plainfield. Two creameries have also been established, the 
milk from which comes to this city. The system of dairy inspection and 
milk analysis established two years ago is still carried out with much, 
care. The dairies are inspected as often as possible, and the milk, as sold 
in the city, carefully watched. One hundred and eighty-seven samples of 
milk were analyzed during 1904, and 225 inspections made of dairies. 
During the hot summer months a thorough examination was made of all 
the milks sold in Plainfield for a preservative; but one sample out of 
thirty-nine contained a preservative; this one contained formaldehyde, 
and measures were immediately taken to prevent its further use. Sys- 
tematic dairy inspection and milk analysis is slowly spreading in our 
neighboring cities, but not, however, as rapidly as we would like. West- 
field is establishing such a system, and when all the other cities and towns 
have reached that point we will receive great help in this work.

Shrewsbury Township. — ^Following is a copy of a letter sent, 
under date of July 24th, 1905, to the secretary of the board of 
health of Shrewsbury township : 

Mr. A, C, Harrison, Secretary Board of Health of Shrewsbury Totonahip, 
Red Bank, N, J,: 
Deab Sir — Investigation along both branches of the Shrewsbury river 
has shown* that these waters receive sewage at numerous- points, and* that 
they are thereby rendered unfit for the production of oystersi and clam6>. 
One outbreak of typhoid fever which occurred in and) near Oceanic some 
time ago is* believed' to have been caused by the use of clanus* taken from 
the south branch of the river, and we therefore call your attention to the 
risk which may attend the further use of dams taken from the said pol- 
luted waters, and advise that measuresi sihall be taken by your board to 
prohibit the sale of shellfish collected from the waters in question*.

208 REPOKT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



DISIMFBOTION AS A MEANS OF RBSTRIOnNG THB 
SPRBAD OF COMMUNIOABLBI DISBASBS.' 

BY HENEY MITCHELL, M.D. 

The opinions of sanitarians have undergone very great changes 
in recent years concerning the value of some of the measures de- 
signed to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, and a revolution 
has occurred in the practice of progressive health officers in the use 
of disinfectants. In a considerable number of diseases the nature 
of the infection has been learned, but very great difficulty, insur- 
mountable thus far in the case of many affections, has attended 
efforts to trace the avenues through which the germs are conveyed to 
the patient, and the employment of a germicide will be of no avail 
unless its destructive influence can be brought to bear directly upon 
the infective agent. The purpose of disinfection is to destroy dis- 
ease-producing agencies and to prevent their finding a suitable soil 
in which to multiply, but the limits within which well-directed 
measures can be applied for the extermination of pathogenic organ- 
isms are extremely narrow. In tuberculosis, diphtheria, malaria, 
yellow fever, typhoid fever and certain other affections the infect- 
ive organism has been identified, and intelligent and effective war- 
fare can be waged against the transmission of these diseases by the 
employment of the recognized preventive measures. In the case 
of scarlet fever, 'measles, whooping cough, &c., all efforts at disin- 
fection have thus far been empirical, for the specific cause of these 
affections has not been discovered, and we do not know with cer- 
tainty* just how these diseases are transmitted nor how the germs 
may be successfully attacked. True disinfection, therefore, should 
be aimed at the cause of the particular disease with which we have 
to deal, and the materials employed and the manner of application 
will be quite different in different affections. For example, the 
infective agent in typhoid fever is known to be discharged from 
the intestinal canal and from the bladder, and disinfection to pre- 
vent the spread of this disease is effected by receiving all excreta 
in a germicidal solution, and by subjecting garments and other 
infected articles to steam at a temperature of 240 degrees Fahren- 
heit in a suitable chamber for not less than thirty minutes, or by 

^Read at the annual meeting of the New Jersey Sanitary Association, 1905.

prolonged boiling or immersion in a germicidal solution. In diph- 
theria, where the infectious material is discharged from the nos'e 
and throat, the procedure is altogether different, as it is believed 
that the transmission of the infectious bacteria is commonly 
affected by moist particles floating through the air, as well as by 
soiled hands and other direct means of conveyance. Pulmonary 
tuberculosis, pneumonia and certain other affections are believed 
to be carried in the same way, and disinfection for the prevention 
of these diseases is directed to the destruction of infectious ma- 
terial which is discharged from the diseased surfaces, and which 
find lodgment in the sick-room and upon door knobs, stair rails and 
other places where infected hands can carry it. There is little 
reason to believe that the ceilings and those portions of the side 
walls of dwellings above the reach of the patient and attendants 
will retain infection, for if floating droplets or infected dust should 
reach these portions of the sick-room they will soon become dry 
and the bacilli will die. The floors, the woodwork which is within 
reach of infected hands, and the furniture, particularly all articles 
which have been touched by the patient, are the objects which are 
most liable to retain infectious substances, and it is against these 
objects that disinfection should be directed. But, even with intelli- 
gent application of the most efficacious disinfectants, the operator 
cannot always be sure that the infectious substances have all been 
rendered harmless. Disinfection, like curative medicine, aims to 
repair injuries already inflicted, and it would rarely be required 
if nurses and other attendants upon the sick would promptly deal 
with all infectious emanations in a manner which will immediately 
destroy their vitality. To practice room disinfection according to 
the prevailing custom, after skillful and faithful bedsid^ precau- 
tions have been taken, is not only useless, but meddlesome and inde- 
fensible. As ordinarily conducted by untrained persons, disin- 
fection, so-called, is an humiliating exhibition, for too frequently 
the only information which the inspector has acquired relating to 
the subject has been forced upon him by the advertising circulars 
of parties who have apparatus to sell or by traveling salesmen 
whose business it is to make customers of health boards throughout 
the country. From these and other equally unreliable sources 
inspectors of the class referred tx) have received statements which 
they accept as facts, and they go forth equipped with a handsomely

polished "generator" to disinfect dwellings in which sickness has 
recently occurred. Doubtless some of these officials really believe 
that the irrespirable gas which is liberated by the apparatus is de- 
structive to all causes of sickness which mav exist in the house, but 
in the case of others the opportunity to charge a fee is the first 
consideration, and but little thought is expended upon the efficiency 
of the operation- It is a conservative statement to assert that 90 
per cent, of the disinfecting operations which are at present being 
conducted are of no value. This state of affairs is largely due to 
the individualism which prevails in the public health service, and 
it would be corrected in great measure if the men who are entrusted 
with these duties could meet each other from time to time in order 
that all might learn the opinions and practice of those among them 
who are most experienced and capable. The views of theorists are 
liable to be quite as objectionable as are those of the unlearned, for 
no two sanitary problems are exactly alike, and rigid rules cannot 
be adhered to. Let us remember that the chief defenses which 
nature has provided to protect humanity against extinction by 
reason of infectious diseases are sunlight and fresh air, and let us 
humbly follow the instinct which is planted in every normal mind, 
and which prompts us to be cleanly in all our habits and practices, 
for it is upon these influences mainly that w^e must depend for 
escape from the communicable diseases. In Circular 98, issued by 
the State board of health, is published a brief outline of the steps 
to be taken in preventing the spread of infectious diseases, and 
disinfection forms a part of the defense which is recommended, 
but the precautions which should be taken in the sick-room have 
first place in the presentation of the subject. 

RESTATEMETiTT. 

1. It is the patient himself who is the source of infection, and 
the best sanitary service consists in isolation of infected persons. 

2. Cleanliness in the sick-room and immediate treatment by the 
nurse of all infectious substances will leave little for the official 
disinfector to accomplish. 

3. When house disinfection is performed it should be done 
under the supervision of a person who is familiar with the effects 
of the disinfecting agent employed, and who has a clear compre- 
hension of the objects to be accomplished.

CIRCULAR 112. 

Introduction. 

The average number of deaths caused by malarial affections in New 
Jersey during the past twenty-six years has- been 182, and for the fourteen 
years, 1879-1892, the average number of dteaths in the State from malaria 
was 256. The diminiahing mortality from this cause has been very 
marked' during the past seven years (1898, eighty-two; 1899, ninety-six; 
1900, eighty-four; 1901, fifty; 1902, thirty-six; 1903, forty; 1904, forty^ 
three), and) the remarkable falling off in deaths for the past few years 
leaves no doubt that some unusual influence has produced this improve- 
mjent. No new methodSi of treatment have recently been introduced, and 
only' one explanation of the decrease in the prevalence of this disease has 
beens suggested', viz., the recognition of the causae of the malady and the 
application of rational measures to reduce the extent of mosquito-breeding 
areas. Individuals can do much toward defending themselves against this 
disease by protecting themselves from the bites of mosquitoes at night 
and during evenings by the use of screens and- canopies, and, as the 
anopheles rarely flies far from breeding places, almost all communities 
can free their localities from the carriers of the infection by drainage and 
by filling in wet places-. The efforts of local boards of health to rid their 
various districts of breeding places for the anopheles should be systematic 
and continuous. Diagrams of each sanitary district should be prepared, 
showing every spot where standing water is found' by the inspector, and 
•each pool or receptacle which affords opportunity for the propagation of 
mosquitoes should be declared by the local board of health to be a nuiS' 
ance, and its abatement sliould be secured by the enforcement of appro- 
priate ordinances made for that purpose. Authority for ordinances of this 
character is found in paragraph 3 of section 12 of chapter 68 of the laws 
of 1887. The diagnosis of obscure cases of malaria is now regularly made 
in the State laboratory of hygiene by the examination of the blood of 
patients, and the physicians of the State are very generally availing them- 
selves of this service. It is advisable that local boards of health shall 
require reports from physicians of all cases of malaria which may come

under observation, for by this meanfi the sanitary inspector will be greatly 
assifitedj in tracing out unnilocovered breeding places of the insects. Meas^ 
ures for the isolation of individuals who are infected with the malarial 
parasite have never been seriously considered, by sanitarians, for, like 
tuberculosis, it ist usually a chronic aftection, and great hardship would 
attend the segregation of persons) who are not themselves actually ill, yet 
capable of transmitting the disease. Moreover,' when the great number 
of persons who are infected is considered, it is apparent that isolation 
would be altogether impracticable. 

Malaria is a Qeneral Term, first employed to indicate a group of febrile 
disordiers, which were then believed to be air-borne, and) to emanate in 
some mysterious manner from decaying and water-soaked* vegetation, but 
in 1880 Laveran demonstrated! the causative relation of a certain pro- 
tozoan parasite to these affections, and more recent investigators have 
clearly proved that this parasite is transmitted to human beings only by 
mosquitoes of the genus anopheles. It has not yet been positively shown 
that this organism exists anywhere outside of the bodies of mosquitoes 
and human beings, but investigations concerning the life-cycle of the para- 
sites are still in progress. 

The Infection of the Anopheles Mosquito occurs when blood containing 
the spores of the malarial parasite is sucked from* a bite made in the fiesh 
of a human being who is affected with malaria. In the body of the mos- 
quito the parasite develops- andi multiplies, and finally it is discharged into 
the blood of a new victim, together with the venom which, these insects 
always inject when they bite. 

The Anopheies Breeds in Stagnant Water, like all other gnats. The 
eggs are deposited upon the surface of the water in boat-like groups, pass 
through the larval or wriggler stage and develop into winged insects ini 
the course of six or seven days. Neither the eggs nor the larvae of 
mosquitoes can withstand* thorough drying. They obtain nourishment 
from fruit and leaves, as well as from cattle, bird^ and! human beings. 
The favorite breeding places for anopheles are shallow pools (fresh or 
salt) and' puddles, gutters, ditches, cisterns, cesspools, rain-water barrels, 
old tin cans, &c. 

The Anopheles May Be Distinguished from other varieties of mosquitoes 
by its relatively large size and- by its lighter color. The legs of the 
anopheles are longer, and' when at rest its body stands nearly at a right 
angle to> the surface to which the insect is attached'. The wings of the 
anopheles are spotted or smoky, while those of the culex are clear. The 
body of the anopheles is nearly straight from beak to tail, while the body 
of the culex is bent or humped at the thorax. 

The Diagnosis of Malaria is regularly conducted in the State laboratory 
of hygiene, Trenton, by staining andi examining specimens of blood* spread- 
in a thin film- on a slide or cover glass. The detection of the parasite of 
malaria is satisfactory evidence that the patient is suffering from the 
disease. A negative report is of little value. Although the preparation 
of a thin and even film* of blood, such as is needed for these examinations,, 
does not seem to be difficult to the experienced worker, yet a very con- 
siderable amount of practice is necessary before it can be satisfactorily 
done. In chronic cases and cases where quinine has been administered, 
the parasites in the peripheral circulation are so few in number that very 
lengthy and careful searching is necessary to demonstrate their presence. 

The Prevention of Malaria can best be accomplished by ridding the

locality of stagnant vater. Pools and! swampy places: sliould be drainect 
or filled; gutters and dltchesi should be freed of all standing water; oltl 
tin cansi should be removed); rain-water barrel® and' all other receptacles 
for water should be kept closely coveredi with fine wire netting. Whea 
d!rainag>e isi depended) upon the work should be thoroughly done, so that no 
holes or hollows are left, for even footprints left on soft ground may hold 
water enough to breed* hundreds of mosquitoes. Encouragement for care- 
ful and' continuous efforts to prevent the local breeding of mosquitoes is 
found' in the fact that the iiisects do not, as a rule, fly far, and' therefore 
almost every locality breeds its own mosquitoes. The use of crude petro- 
leum as a tem'porary expedient, to prevent the larvae from reaching the 
surface of the water, may be advisable in dealing with cesspools and other 
small bodies of water where drainage or filling cannot be resorted to, but, 
to be effectual, its application should) be frequently repeated. One ounce 
of crude oil to fifteen square feet of surface may be sprayed by the use 
of a pump and hose, or it may be applied by means of a saturated' rag 
attached' to a pole. Permanent bodies of water should be deepened at 
the borders and stocked with small fish. 

Fish' which grow to a large size are not desirable, for they destroy the 
larvae-eating fishes. The margins of ponds, lakes and sluggish water- 
coursesi should! be kept free from grass, to permit the fish to have access 
to all portions of the water. Frogs and other aquatic animals are also 
useful in destroying mosquito larvae. The anopheles mosquitoes fiy more 
at twilight and! at night than during the daytime, and protective measures 
against the bites of these insects should therefore be employed) with 
greatest care from an hour before sunset to an hour after sunrise. Dwell- 
ings should! be screened at every opening, and mosquitoes, which manage 
to findi admission should' be destroyed' by the smoke of burning fiea powder 
{pyrethrum roseum). Before the smoke is liberated, all windows and 
doors should be closed' and each room should be tr^ted separately. The 
powdered' pyrethrum should] be placed loosely upon a tin plate or other 
metal surface and be allowed- to smoulder slowly, enough of the powder 
being used to produce a dense smoke. After the room has been opened 
up all files and mosquitoes found upon the floor should be swept up and 
burned', for they may, in some instances, be only stupefiedi. The entire 
extermination of mosquitoes has not thus far been accomplished in any 
locality which they have once infested', but the number can, by the meas- 
ures which have been described, be so reduced- that the danger of infection 
will be greatly diminished, if not altogether eliminated. 

RESTATEMENT. 

Malaria is conveyed to human beings only through the agency of the 
anopheles mosquito. 

Mosquitoes become infected by biting persons who are already affected 
with the disease. 

Mosquitoes can be destroyed (a) by removing all stagnant water; (6) 
by deepening ponds and pools which cannot be drained or filled' up, and 
introducing fish; (c) by clearing away obstructions and weeds from gut- 
ters and ditches to permit of free escape for storm water; (d) by destroy- 
ing the larvae with oil in situations where more radical treatment cannot 
be applied; (e) by destroying adult mosquitoes which hibernate in cellars, 
draina, cesspools and other places by the use of the smoke of burning 
insect powder and by brushing them out and consuming them by fire.

CIRCULAR 113. 

Analysis of Water. 

So many applications have been received for the analysis, in the state 
laboratory of hygiene, of the waters from private wells that it becomes 
necessary to call attention to the regulations under which the laboratory 
service is rendered. The examination of samples of water from public 
supplies will proceed regularly and periodically, but it is impossible to 
undertake the analysis of water from other sources, except to a limited 
extent, and it is incumbent upon the persons who request such examina- 
tions to show that the results of the analysis may assist in solving ques- 
tions concerning the public health. The laboratory is conducted for the 
benefit of the public, and analytical work which has no bearing upon the 
public health cannot be performed. 



Regulations governing the collection and examination of samples of 
water from private premises, 

1. Any person desiring the analysis of a sample of water, to determine 
its fitness for potable use, should apply to the local board of health of the 
township or municipality in which he resides, stating in full why such an 
examination is desired. If that board, or its executive officer, considers 
that the circumstances render an examination of the water desirable, he 
will approve the application and forward it to the state board of health. 
Should the latter approve the application they will either instruct an 
inspector of the state board to collect a sample, or forward the application 
to the director of the state laboratory of hygiene, who will ship a con- 
tainer to the person forwarding the application. 

2. The sample must be collected by the health officer making the appli- 
cation, or by some person designated by the state board of health. The 
person collecting the sample must fill in fully the blank sent, for the pur- 
pose of giving a description of the source of the water. 

3. Samples collected in any other way or by other persons than those 
mentioned above, or collected in bottles not furnished by the laboratory, 
will not be received for examination. 

4. Transportation charges on bottles must be paid both ways by the 
persons interested. 

5. The state board of health assumes no responsibility for the correct- 
ness of analyses made of samples collected by persons other than inspect- 
ors of the board.

CIRCULAR 103 (REVISED 1905). 
Introduction. 

The enforcement of the provisions of the act of 1901, to prevent the 
sale of unwholes-ome and adulterated food and drugs, dtew attention to 
certain, omissions in this enactment, and supplements have been paesed- 
which are designed to stren-gthen the previous law and also to rectify the 
defects which have been observed. The supplement of April 4th, 1902, 
specifiea clearly the method to be pursued in conducting prosecutions for 
the penalty where the law has been violated. The supplement approved 
May 22d, 1905, fixes the standard for vinegar, and the act approved April 
4th, 1902, authorizes the establishment of standard* for other articles of 
food, standards for which had not previously been fixed by law. Soon 
after the enactment of the supplement of 1902 preliminary action was 
taken by the state board of health to fix the limits of variability in* food, 
but in view of the announcement that a list of definitions and standards 
for food was in preparation by the United States bureau of chemistry, 
final action was not taken by the board of health of the State of New 
Jersey until December 18th, 1903. An examination of the subjoined list 
will show that it coincides very closely with the recommenciations adopted 
under the United States statute for the regulation of imported articles. 
It will be observed that the list is still incomplete, and that standards for 
many groups of food have not yet been arranged. 

Many letters of inquiry have been received asking for information con- 
cerning the requirements of the New Jersey laws relative to the labeling 
of containers* of food', and particularly in relation to the extent to which 
the use of the word "comipound," when placed upon the label of prepared 
food', will release the vendor of the article from the penalties which have 
beeni provided; to prevent the sale of adulterated goods. Reference to 
section. 6 of chapter 85 of the laws of 1901 shows that the law prohibits 
the sale of any food or drug which is an imitation of any other article, 
and' requires' that every article of food or drug which is mixed, or the 
quality or value of whlclj is diminished' or lowered by the addition of a 
cheaper substance, and* which is sold as an imitation of some other article, 
shall be sold under the true name of the imitatiofi. The word' "compound" 
is not the "true name," for example, of glucose, and when a package 
labeled "molasses," but which is, in fact, a mixture of glucose andi mo- 
lasses, is sold in response to a demand from a customer for molasses-, the 
vendor is not released from responsibility if the label, in addition to the 
word "molasses," also bears the word "compound." 

The definitions and standards published herewith will, if carefully exam- 
ined, clearly guide dealers in prepared food concerning the labeling of 
these articles. 

The warning notices which are sent to dealers from whom- adulterated 
articles, or articles which fall below the standard fixed by law, have been 
purchased, will inform' interested parties that the sale of such articles is 
unlawful, and is liable to be followed by prosecution for the penalty if the 
sale of such articles is continued.

kept or fed. 

8. No person having the possession or care of any milk shall permit it 
to be exposed to, or contaminated by, the emanations, discharges or exhala- 
tions from any person or persons sick with any contagious disease; and 
no person shall distribute or sell, or offer to distribute or sell, or have in 
his ];>ossession with intent to distribute or sell, any milk which has been 
so exposed or contaminated. 

9. No person shall sell, or offer or expose for sale, or have in his posses-

such milk shall have a metal label or tag of metal distinctly, durably and 
permanently soldered in a conspicuous place upon the outside and not 
more than six inches from the top thereof, with the words "skimmed milk''* 
stamped, indented or engraved on the label or tag in letters not less •than 
two inches in height, and the several lines of which shall be not less than 
three-eighths of an inch in width; provided, however, that every glass 
bottle, in lieu of such label or tag, may have blown in it the words 
"skimmed milk" in letters which shall not be less than one inch in height, 
and the several lines of which shall be not less than one-eighth of an inch 
in width; such milk shall only be sold or shipped in or retailed out of a

shall hold their respective positions during the pleasure of said board and 
perform such general or special services as said board may by their gen- 
eral rules and regulations or by their special orders require, and to fix 
and allow to said analysts, chemists, chief inspector and other inspectors 
and employes, respectively, such salaries, fees or compensation as the said 
board shall deem to be reasonable, which salaries, fees and compensation 
shall be paid out of t)ie appropriations from time to time made by the 
legislature for carrying out the provisions of this act; the said board shall 
have the power, and it shall be their duty, through said analysts, chemists, 
chief inspector and other inspectors and employes, and in such other ways 
as the said board of health may deem practicable, to make inquiries and 
Investigations concerning alleged or probable violations of any of the pro- 
visions of this act, to cause any and all persons guilty of any violation 
thereof to be prosecuted under the provisions of this act, and, generally,

intent to distribute or sell, any article of food or drug, shall, on the request 
therefor and the tender of the value thereof by any chief or other insi>ector 
appointed under the authority of this act, deliver to such chief or other 
Inspector so much of any such article of food or drug as said chief or 
other inspector may request; if such request shall not be immediately 
granted, said chief or other inspector shall thereupon have the power to 
demand and take so much of any such article of food or drug as such chief 
or other inspector may think proper, he, at the time of said demand and 
taking, tendering to the person in charge of such article of food or drug 
what he may deem to be the reasonable value thereof; said chief or other 
Inspector shall, at the time of the delivery to him of such article of food 
or drug, or of his demanding and taking the same, divide the sample so 
delivered or demanded and taken, in the presence of one or more witnesses, 
into two parts, and shall duly seal each part in a suitable can, vessel or 
package, and, at the time of taking such sample, shall tender, and if 
accepted, shall deliver one part to the person of whom the request or 
demand was made, with a statement, in writing, signed by said chief or 
other inspector, that such sample is taken for the purpose of analysis; 
and in any prosecution of any person for the violation of any provision of 
this act, or of any other statute of this state relative to the prevention of 
deception in the sale of food products, no proof of any analysis thereof 
shall be given in evidence by the prosecutor unless a part of the sample 
shall have been sealed up and tendered, with such writing as aforesaid, to 
the person of whom the request or demand was made; the chief and every 
other inspector appointed under the authority of this act, whenever he 
has reason to believe that any of the provisions of this act concerning the 
sale or distribution of milk, or the offering or exposing of milk for sale, 
or the having of milk in possession for the purpose of sale, is being vio- 
lated, shall have power to open any can, vessel or package containing such 
suspected milk, whether the can, vessel or package be sealed or locked or 
not, and whether it be in transit or not; and if, upon inspection, he shall 
believe that such milk is being distributed or sold, or had in possession 
with intent to distribute or sell, or offered or exposed for sale, contrary to 
any of the provisions of this act, he may, in the presence of one or more

witnesses, take a sample thereof and seal it in a can, vessel or package^ 
and send the sample thus enclosed and sealed for analysis to any chemist 
appointed under the authority of this act; he may also in any such case 
condemn such milk and pour it upon the ground. • 

13. E-very person who shall violate any of the provisions of this act, and 
every person who shall obstruct or in anywise interfere with any analysts, 
chemists, chief inspector or other inspector or employe of the State board 
of health in the performance of any duty under this act, shall be liable to 
a penalty of fifty dollars; provided, however, that if any person charged 
with ihe violation of any of the provisions of this act concerning impure 
foods or impure drugs shall prove at the hearing or trial of the complaint 
that the article alleged to be impure was produced under a warranty from 
any person or persons residing within this state, in the form hereinafter 
set forUi, that said article was pure within the meaning of this act, and 
prior to the hearing or trial shall have filed in the district court, or with 
the justice of the peace, police justice or recorder, before whom the case 
is prosecuted, and with the attorney of the prosecutor of the case, a copy 
of such warranty, the person so complained against shall be discharged 
from prosecution; the warranty to justify such discharge shall specific- 
ally name and describe the article or articles warranted and shall be of 
the following form, to wit: "It is hereby warranted that the following- 
described article or articles, to wit, —. are pure and unadulterated
