THE ILLINOIS STATE BOARD OF HEALTH AND THE STATE LEGISLATURE.

THE ILLINOIS STATE BOARD OF HEALTH AND THE STATE LEGISLATURE. The House of Representatives of the Illinois State Legislature appears to have developed a decided opposition to the State Board of Health, by striking out of the general appropriation bill all provision for the support of the Board for the next two years, and by a proposition that is still pending, to repeal Section 11 of the Medical Practice Act. This Section is the one prohibiting all traveling or itinerant medicine vendors to ply their vocation in the State unless they obtain a license from the State Board, for which they must pay $100 per month. From the tenor of the discussions in the Legislature, it appears that the opposition originates mainly from the idea that the Board has been interfering too much with the sacred right of the people to be humbugged; and with the equally inalienable right of medical impostors to obtain money under false pretenses.
