Bureau of Dairy and Milk Inspection



Cincinnati, January i, 1902.

Dr. Clark W. Davis, Health Officer:

Dear Sir, — Herewith is respectfully submitted the report
of the Bureau of Dairy and Milk Inspection for the year
ending December 31, 1901. There have been 1,040 visits
made to dairies during the past year, also inspections and
reinspections of 42,024 cattle.

The dairy stables are not up to date in their construction,
and it can be truthfully said that there are no model dairies
within or surrounding the city. Most of these structures
have been standing for a period of from ten to thirty years.
These have been kept as clean as possible under the existing
conditions.

The cattle as a whole have been very healthy, with the
exception of a few scattered cases of disease.

The milk during the past year has been of excellent
quality, as the results of the chemical analyses show. The
u.se of formaldehyde as a preservative prevailed somewhat
during the early part of the summer, but the arrest of one
of the violators and a warning to several others prevented
any further use of the drug.

1228 Annual Report



The quality of food is the same 3^ has been used in
previous years, clover, hay, meals, and grains being mixed
in proper proportion with still -slop. Cattle fed in this
manner are found to be in a healthy condition, producing
good, wholesome milk.

In closing, I wish to express my appreciation for any
service rendered this bureau.

Very respectfully,

J. STEWART HAGEN, M. D.,

Dairy and Milk Inspecior.

Bureau of Law



Cincinnati, May i, 1902.

Clark W. Davis, M. D., Health Officer:

Dear Sir, — I would respectfully report that the work
of the Bureau of Law of the Health Department for the
past year has been as follows :

The routine work has consisted of daily conferences
with yourself and the heads of the various departments
and employees of the ofl&ce, and with persons having busi-
ness with the department, advising as to legal rights and
duties, and enforcing as far as possible, without litigation,
the proper administration of the municipal and state health
laws ; to these duties have been added that of attorney or
counsel for the Board in the various prosecutions instituted
by the Milk and Dairy Inspector and the Superintendent of
Markets, and against physicians and others failing to report
the existence of contagious diseases, and vault-cleaners and
others who have failed to comply with the sanitary laws
and regulations. In this connection much time and atten-
tion have been given toward enforcing the laws relating to
proper sewerage connection of premises, especially tenement-
house property, where such has been feasible, and with the
assistance and cooperation of the Inspector of Buildings the
sanitary condition of many of these stnictures has, by the
enforcement of the law, been vastly improved.

1234 Annual Report

In litigated matters, the most important decisions ren-
dered during the year have been those rendered in the case
of the City of Cincinnati v. Robert Allison et al.^ members
of the Board of Public Service (No. 120,449, Hamilton
Common Pleas Court) , wherein, in an able opinion rendered
by Judge Spiegel, the right of the Health Department to
make periodical examinations of houses in which contagious
or infectious diseases are most likely to exist, especially
houses of prostitution, was maintained, thereby sustaining
the decision of the Superior Court of the previous year; and
in the case of Edwin Behymer v, Clark W. Davis, Health
Ofl&cer, et al. (No. 51,565, Superior Court), wherein, after
a thorough and exhaustive contention. Judge Jackson sus-
tained the right of the Health Department to maintain
placards on premises wherein contagious or infectious
diseases exist, and holding that the decision of the health
ofl&cials was determinative as to the existence of such
disease and the consequent necessity for such placard.

I beg to acknowledge the continued assistance and
cooperation of the Corporation Counsel and his able assist-
ants, and of the Prosecuting Attorney of the Police Court,
with whom I have had frequent occasion to confer, in en-
forcing the sanitary and police laws within the scope of the
supervision of the Health Department.

Respectfully submitted,

JOSEPH COX, Jr.,
