Progress of the Plague. —At a meeting of the San Francisco Board of Health and the attorneys of the Chinese Six Companies, May 22, a letter was drawn up for posting in Chinatown to the effect that the Board will not force the Chinese to submit to inoculation and that only those volunteering will receive the prophylactic injection.

Abstract

Progress of the Plague. —At a meeting of the San Francisco Board of Health and the attorneys of the Chinese Six Companies, May 22, a letter was drawn up for posting in Chinatown to the effect that the Board will not force the Chinese to submit to inoculation and that only those volunteering will receive the prophylactic injection. A house-to-house canvass of Chinatown will be made, to discover, if possible, any hidden cases of the disease, and to thoroughly cleanse the disease-breeding spots. As noted in our editorial columns this week, the Board has endeavored to keep the actual conditions from the public, but on the 21st it admitted, in a circular to the other state boards, that there had been nine deaths from bubonic plague, all Chinese found dead in Chinatown. No further cases are known, but every precaution to prevent the recurrence of the disease is being taken.
