Smallpox Epidemic, Part XLV

Indianapolis Journal - 1900-03-08 (Smallpox epidemic)Health Board Wants $2,000.

The Board of Health held a meeting yesterday morning and after allowing monthly bills, decided to ask the City council to appropriate $2,000 for a contagious disease fund. The members of the board say that department is allowed but a few hundred dollars for contagious diseases, which is all used in the general run of business and in the event of a smallpox epidemic or even a case or two of smallpox the board is embarrassed financially. The members believe the board should have the money in case it is needed at any time.
