CURRENT COURT DECISIONS PERTAINING TO PUBLIC HEALTH

Laundries, regulation of.The enforcement of an ordinance of the city of Chicago, regulating the establishment, licensing, operation, and sanitation of laundries, was sought to be enjoined. The lower court dismissed the bill and the decree was affirmed by the Supreme Court of Illinois. It was held that the ordinance was clearly : health regulation which the city had authority to pass, and those provisions of the ordinance which were attacked were held valid. (Moy et al v. City of Chicago et al., 140 N. E. 845.)

Sewers and sewage disposal.—The Supreme Court of California has decided that section 3 of the public health act, which requires a permit from the State board of health in connection with sewers and sewage disposal, applies only to the use of sewers after construc

tion and does not apply to their construction. (Ex parte Chutuk, 218 Pac. 393.)

State board of health, membership of.-In a quo warranto proceeding brought in the name of the State, on the relation of the attorney general, to determine the membership of the State board of health, and also who was entitled to the office of secretary of the board, the Supreme Court of Kansas held as follows:

(1) Appointments to membership on the State board of health, which are not acted on or rejected by the senate, entitle the appointees to hold their offices to the end of their terms or until the appointments are considered and rejected by the senate.

(2) A mere recital in the commission issued to the appointee by the governor that the appointment had been confirmed does not establish the fact.

(3) The governor can not revoke appointments made during a recess of the legislature merely because such appointments are not sent to or acted upon by the senate at the next legislative session.

(4) In the absence of a statutory provision to that effect, the failure of an appointee to take and file his oath of office does not create a vacancy in the office.

(5) The action of a board member, already legally appointed, in qualifying under a subsequent appointment and attending and participating in an illegal meeting of the board, was not a resignation of his office and did not affect his title to the office which he already occupied under a previous legal appointment.

(6) The secretary who was appointed at the meeting of the board held on June 5, 1923, was vested with a good title to his office. (State ex rel. Griffith, Atty. Gen., V. Matassarin et al., 217 Pac. 930.)

Garbage disposal ordinance upheld.-An ordinance of the city of Enid, regulating the removal and disposal of garbage and directing the making of a contract with some person, firm, or corporation for such removal and disposal, has been held valid by the Supreme Court of Oklahoma. The ordinance was attacked on the grounds that (1) it created a monopoly of the business of hauling and disposing of garbage, and (2) that it was discriminatory, illegal, and in excess of the police power of the city to prohibit a business which was not a nuisance per se. (Burns v. City of Enid et al., 217 Pac. 1038.)

DEATH RATES IN A GROUP OF INSURED PERSONS.

COMPARISON OF DEATH RATES FOR PRINCIPAL CAUSES OF DEATH, SEPTEMBER AND

OCTOBER, 1923, AND OCTOBER AND YEAR, 1922.

The accompanying table is taken from the Statistical Bulletin of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. for November, 1923. It presents the mortality experience of the industrial insurance department of the company for September and October, 1923, and October and year 1922. The rates for 1923 are based on a strength of over 14,000,000 persons.

The Bulletin says: “The October death rate of eight per thousand exceeds by a small margin last year's figure for the same month (7.9). The usual seasonal increase over September is in evidence this year and is due, for the most part, to higher October rates for cerebral hemorrhage, organic heart disease, pneumonia, diphtheria, and accidents. The health situation, as a whole, is a very satisfactory one. There is no general epidemic prevalence of any disease. Measles, which has been much in evidence during most of 1923, shows for the first time this year a lower death rate than for the corresponding month of 1922. The tuberculosis rate continues low and a further reduction this year in the mortality from this disease is now practically assured. Heart disease, on the other hand, continues to cause more deaths than for several years.

“Attention must again be called to the very unsatisfactory death rate for accidents in October. The mortality increased sharply over the September figure and stands 25 per cent higher than for October, 1922. There were 232 automobile fatalities, corresponding to a death rate of 19.4 per 100,000. This is not only the highest figure for any month in 1923, but is the maximum for any one month among Metropolitan Industrial policyholders. * * * Automobile accidents in October caused three times as many deaths as typhoid fever and almost as many as diphtheria, whooping cough, scarlet fever, and measles combined. The leading cause of death, organic heart disease, was responsible for only six deaths to every one automobile fatality.

"The general, or population, death rate for the large cities of the United States in October was 11.3 per 1,000. This is identical with the rate for October, 1922, and shows only a slight increase, altogether seasonal, over the figure for September, 1923. There was more or less increased prevalence in October of diphtheria, influenza, measles, poliomyelitis, scarlet fever, and smallpox, while fewer cases of typhoid and whooping cough were reported. Comparison with October of last year shows more influenza, malaria, measles, poliomyelitis, and smallpox, but less diphtheria, scarlet fever, and whooping cough."
