TO CURB EPIDEMIC
, Editor Capital Journal: Your timely
article on the influenza epidemic, in
last night's issue of the Journal is
cortainly worthy of consideration and
commendation. The epidemic of this
city, or any other city, will be stamp
ed out only -when the civil' population
works in harmony and will got together
and carry on a eampaiga of education
for its eradication, Kvery citizen should
take this subject aa his affair and- re
port any or H information ho or she
ihas. I have the following suggestion
to offor thnt tho mayor of our city
'appoint tho Ifollowing commiteo of In
formation , and education, to bo com
posed of: Mayor, health committee of
council, ity physician, 1 prominent
physician, president Commercial club,
prosidont of Kcd Cross, editor or jour
nal, editor of Statesman, superintend
ent public schools, a member of Minis
terial association, one banker, one nrug-
I This committee could moot at arrang
ed meetings and map out a definite
program of education and procedure.
I The second wave of the epidemic is
now on the decline, but the medical
profession is anticipating another wave
ibcfore spring. The lull is now on and
bv Betting together and arranging def
inite procedure much could be done and

With holding truth from tho people,
alboht disease and the proper treatment
thereof can only prolfit those who do
not wish disease banished from the
earth. One. of our jgreatost medical
authorities has recently said: About
800,0K) people die annually from pre
ventable diseases; and that the chief
eauso of these deaths is the doctors
denying the people the information,
that is rightfully theirs.
Ti.tnk of the peoplo suff ring with

never heard of diseased teeth causing

Chief Of Staff March Will An
nounce Casualties Of Each
Washington, Jan. 18. Chief of Staff
March proposed today to announce the
number of replacements furnished each
combatant division. This is practically
equivalent to giving each division's
total casualty list.
His purpose was to still the persist
ent reports in various parts of the
country as to exaggerated losses. ,
March declared that 768,626 men and
51,593 officers have actually been dis
charged dn this country; that 104,000
had aetualy returned from abroad and
that 1,177,000 in the United States are
listed for demobilization.
Demobilization has reached a rate of
30,000 men per day in the states and
dischargo of the remaining half of
tho combatant divisions has been order
ed. As previously pointed out by the
United Press, the actual slicing off of
divisions below thirty has not yet been
ordered. March could make no specific
figures indicating how extensive the
reduction will be, though previous
statements of the war department fig
ures have shown that. 275,000 to 300,
000 men should be returned monthly' if
a score of German ships can be obtain
ed for transport purposes.
Slated For Discharge.
This means that now all troops in the
sLates are slated for discharge except
those of a permanent character, such
as a nucleus of two regimonts of reg
ulars in each division, the mass of the
American cavalry stationed on tho bor
der, coast defenses, large medical per
sonnel for reconstruction liospitals, de
mobilizing and embarkation detach
ments and certain staff corps personnel
Men in this permanent list will be
carefully checked over so as to bring
down to a minimum those compelled
March admitted that some complaints
had come in that demobilization is too
fast at present. Public opinion, he said,
appeared to be divided, some persons
claiming it was too fast and some too
slow. Incidentally, French papers re
ceived toy March insist npon faster
demobilization there. France is demob
ilizing by classes and has discharged the
1887, J888, 1889 and 1890 Teservists.
March had planned to announce to
day tho replacements of all combatant
divisions - Instead of so doing he post
poned the announcement until he can
give the exact casualties by division.
Boston, Mass., Jan. 18. Hundreds of
unemployed, including 3M former
chauffeurs of the army, stormed the
city hall here -today in a huge demon
stration against unemployment.
Fearing violence, city officials call

Hundreds fell in line and marched,
amid shouts and cheers, to city hall,

When the throng reached city hall
nearly one thousand had gathered.

It is Mr. Cupper's suggestion that

district to turn Jnto the district a
part of their holdings, receiving credit
therefor on the reclamation har;;o
against tho romainder of their lards
and that the district bo authorized to
co-operate with tho federal government
in securing tho improvement and set
