Dr. W. T. Jenkins, of New York City, has been elected to succeed Dr. Wm. M. Smith, at the Quarantine Station in the harbor of New York. Dr. Smith has been holding over for about ten years, by reason of the inability of the State Senators to agree to the nominations made by successive Governors. The office is now a salaried one worth $10,000 per annum. When it was a fee-office, the income was estimated to be from $75,000 to $95,000 annually.
