Anonymous Notes In conversation
with Dr. Mohn, city physician, yes
terday, that gentleman reported
health conditions in Astoria as free
from any serious complications of a
communicable sort; and liicidently,
the doctor said he desired it known
all over the city, that he declined to
take any notice whatever, personal,
nor official, of anonymous communica
tions addressed to him. A number of
uch missives have reached his of
fice lately, calling his attention to
disreputable and unhealthful condi
tions in certain yards and premises,
but unsigned, and therefore carrying
the quality of spite-work and certain
ly that of irresponsibility.

swept to and fro on the channel wa
