The nlajority of the people are not al,prised of the provisions of the taw froln which the State Board ofllealth and the various counties and nlunicipahties de- rive their authority. In fact the public is wonderfully nninform- ed upon the sui,ject. The publication of the several sections of the law which relate to thisniatter, and which define aqd limitthe powers of the sev- eral bodies, t herefla'e will aid in prop6rly int%rlning our pople upon an mportant matter, viz: the funclions anti jurisdiction of the lleallh Authorities, state, county and municipM, tile latter of course including all towns and 'cities.

The same. ArtMe 2281.Mu- nicipalitics iuay create boards of health, I)lis sunltary hiws cte. "A city, town, or vilhige niay pass sanitary hlws, establi,h a ll.ard of health, aud elfforee the colh:c- iron and regi.-:trution of birth, healtb, and niorttmry statistics; hut the seine shall I)o sullject to and not inconsi.tent with the rules lul, i regulations of tho state board of health touchin 'the health iutiwests of th0 connty in whichu(;h eity, town, or village is situated." From the last article it is plahi that while muliieipalities may create bo.u'ds of health,.the city, towu or village, only, may pass Such sanitary laws as tie liOt soil- flier with the reguhaions, etc., of the State board. In the eh.u'ter of Woodville the corl,oration is attthorized to pass regulati(tns "fin" estalltiahing and euforcing quarantine and other ragulations necessary t,) the health, safety and good order of saill town." The foregoing constRute the gist of the law ripen boards o2 health and quarantine, so far as we ean ascertain. From th6htv-severd things are evident: It is evident" that the StatCboard of health is made the directing .uld eontrolling l )ower, to the exchrsion almost entil:ely of liry other L,,dy " Tholgh counties and towns niay establish local >quaraitthte lines, thero musl be no conilict with the orders and reguh, tions of the State beaM. And it is also evident that as no authority has been grante(l to local board of health anywhere in the law, they are nccessarily simply "advisory" bodies to the municipal authorities, without any power whatever to pass'a health or other regulation or fix a lmnalty for its wolation. If the htw is correctly stated here it will convey information to -our health authorits and totn an v. (ntil tis-carefill an investigatron was made into the matter, as op- portunity allowed, weh,ld svp- posed that local boards of bealth had some actual legal authority. Our presen t local board has the "end,wsenien:t Of the teommunity in most of its nieasares and we would in no wise :detract from their services, which have been cheerfully given to the public. But it is right, for theul t(i know ,thelaw and to conform to it. It is still niore necessary that tim people Should know thllrovis - ions of the law 1.elatin# to" quar- antine and sanitaH(,n. By this means only in the tut/0re eamwe prevent panics and most suecess- fully prevent or suppress epi- demics.
