Ths postmaster general of England has
Issued ths following ststemeot on the
Inquiry as to tne possible communication
of diseases by the uss of telephones:
In view of tha Importance of removing
sny possible source of infectious disease
tha postmaster general soma time agi
requested Dr. Sputa of St. George's hos
pital and bacteriologist ta the king to
undertake a thorough Investigation to
determine tbe possibility of tha com
munication of tuberculosis through the
use et telephones, and especially of those
in puMlo call offices. For this purpose
a number of telephones which had been
in uss at busy call ef fleas In London for
! various periods and had received no spe
cial cleansing treatment other than that
normally given ta such telephones were
'banded over to Dr. 8pttta tor exarMna

the mouthpieces examined were free from
tubercle bedln. Tha telephones which
were used la that Investigation had been
resaoved fross call offices In postufneaa,
railway termini, meat markets and other
places of general resort.
In order to remove any possible doubt
as to the exhsustive nature af these
experiments the postmaster general, on
Dr. Spina's advtoe, decided to have
further experiments sssde with tele-
pbs.es which were known te have bean

forwarded to Dr. Sputa at Intervals with
sll necessary precautions to prevent any
alteration In their condition, and ware
subjected to the same bacteriological ex
periments as the telephones previously
removed from public call offices. The
Investigations were continued during the
year NIL and a final report has now
been received from Dr. Bpltta showing
that tha results have been entirely nega
tive. Hs states that hs Is ef tha opinion
In view of tha whole eourss of the ex

Impossible.' These resorts are supported
