Abstract

(Concluded from page 27.)

A uniform quarantine coae for the maritime ports of the United States has long been the desire of quarantine and sanitary officers, and heretofore all attempts have been futile.

A board of officers of the marine hospital service was summoned to prepare a code. After the rules and regulations had been prepared and before adjournment of the board, a conference was called of the quarantine officers of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts representing the cities and ports of Portland, Boston, Providence, New Haven, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Del., Baltimore, Norfolk, Wilmington, N. C, Charleston, Savannah, Florida, Mobile, New Orleans and Texas.

This conference was called to order the 16th of March and remained in session two days, the first day being devoted to a consideration of the rules which had been prepared, and discussion thereof, with the understanding that there would be no vote.
