Mr. Christy nalil today that ho might

Tho fire's destruction was
thorough, wiping out the mill and
all nearby buildings, except tho

Mr. Christy, while not definite, has

Analysis Shows
, Coyote Had Rabies
Word waa received at tho Farm
buroau today that tho royoto, killed
July 8 by H. W. Tower jOn his ranch
In tho Worden district, was afflicted'
with rabies, the Information com
ing from the state board of health
at tfalcm.
Tho forum at the chamber of com
merce waa fairly well attended to-
fday and the program arranged by W.
W. McN'ealy was cno which was ap
preciated as It opened a new train of
thought relative to homo matters.
Vr. H. D. L. Stewart, city physi
cian and health officer waa tho prin
cipal spoaker and he choso an his
topic, "Public Health" dealing with
local conditions. Or. Stewart stated
at tbo beginning of hl uddresa that
sanitary condlttona In tho city wero
appalling and that tho present situa
tion waa duo to an Inadequate sow,
or system, and tho part of ono hero In
Impcrfocrtn Its operation.
Ten jjPbecs were stated: dwelling
housea Hhout sewers and dlstrieja
whereto sewers existed: fllthycon
dltlon ot outhouses; homes HUiln
districts where aowerago was avail
able but no connection mado with It;
homes In district whero water re
mained abovo anrface of ground year
around; poor offal disposal; failure
ot reports on communicable dUoates
to health oftlcera and physician:
selfish effort on part of people to
evade quarantine regulations and
protest raised upon Isolatien: actual
violation of state law In regard to
Isolation and quaranUnY regulations
by people exposta aaeral pabtlc to
coamuntaabta' JlassHm MM
quate garbage disposal.
The causes In1 the mnln for this
condition was due to the expansion
or Klamath Falls from a village to
city with only thought of present
problems and not dealing with tbe
future expansion needs In health
preblems: penny pinching policy at
present but no consideration of tho
cost flvo yearn rrom now; failure ot
people to observo tho "Golden Rule"
policy In regard to public health mai.
tcra: lack of knowledgo on part of
average citizen relative to public
health problems; selfish use of public
health rulea Jo work hardship or
neighbors by a "small class of nar
row minded citizens."
The remedy from an Idealistic
standpoint, said Dr.Stewart. was paid
sanitary offlcora on both city and
county health rolls to dovoto entire
time to health matters; entire ro-or-ganlzatlon
of sewerage and sewage
disposal; public Inclnorator for gar
bage (Impoaalblo ot this time owing
to lack of monoy and It would bo
probably two yeara before this could
be secured); personal application of
"Ooldon Kulo" In observance of all
health rules.
The practical remedy, howovor, lay
Immediately in tho preparation of a
set of ordinances by tho city council
nnd proper enforcement ot the reg
ulations; tho working arrangement
with the police Judge to cntorco dras
tic pcnaltlea tor violations such as
$100 and 50 (la's ,n Jal1 for ,,'ther
tho first or 60tli offense At, this
point tho spoaker stated a truth self
evident, "Enforce this on all alike
and thoro will be but ono violation.
after that nono, for anyono can pay a
tino but who wants to lay B0 days In
A method to enforce ordinances
would be by police reporting all of
fenses to health oftlcera. Dr. Stewart
received much applause for hla can
did statemonta In'reforonco to the
health conditions here.

"Thsrc are three other options.
A servlco man under tho bill could
