On - thousand dollars - was appropri
ated by the city council yesterday to
enable Health Officer Pohl and the
health board to was; war on rats and
fleas to 1 prevent tha Introduction of
bubonle plague In Portland.
Dr. Pohl failed the attention of the
board to the fact that 29 cases, of the
dreaded disease had broken out In San
Francisco" since,' August It, and that
heroic measures were belnc taken there
at great expense to ward on an epidemic.
Phe fear a that unlesa strlrtaent precau
tionary measures are taken the mnladv
may be introduced here by Ban Fran-
noo and oriental vessels.
Secretary Tenner of the atata hor1
of health addresaed the board in favor
of exterminating the rata and cited the
council to the unsanitary condition
along tha waterfront and in the railroad
terminal -yards; - He asserted that re
fuse should not be ' permitted ' to be
thrown in the terminal yards to be de
stroyed by yard fires or through, evap
Dr. Poh! told theTiouncll that bubonle
plague had been in existence in - Ban
Francisco ever elnce the epldemle there
some six years ago, but had never had
a chance to come to the surface.' She
said that It had not been introduced
this time from an Asiatic port, but the
first ease had developed in a sailor on
a local tugboat. -
Not only did the council show a dis
position to aid in preventing the intro
duction of the disease, but Dr. Pohl was
flven individual ' assurance that more
unda would, be forthcoming to fight
agalnat oubonic or any other nlagua.
