"I believe," continued Chief Hives,
''that it should be an offense to spit on
the side walks. "Where loafers coire
gate'it would be an easy matter to stop
their spitting if we had the autb ntj
to arrest them for it. Of course, peo
ple walking along the sidewalks might
spit without detection, but the enact
ment of a prohibiting ordinance, even
though convictions might be difficult,
would have a salutary effect."
Sergeant Frank Snow of the police
force said today that about four years
ago an attorney at law of some prom
inence was arrested for spitting on the
Bidewalk and was fined in police court.
He was given a stay of execution, hoe
ever. That is the only attempt to ex
tend the rule of the anti-spitting or
dinance to the sidewalks. Two of the
assistant city physicians are said to
have contracted tuberculosis at the
city hall by reason of the city patients
spitting on the floor of the hallway just
outside of the office of the board of
health. Doctor Ernest Boeber, when
appointed assistant city physician seven
years .ago, had no symptoms of con
sumption. Three years ago he left the
city a consumptive and is now in Colo
rado. The same state of facts exists
in the case of Doctor C. H. Colvin, who
left Kansas City eighteen months ago.
Mr. Charles Mallon, clerk of the board
of health, says that both physicians as
cribe their disease to the habit of pa
tients afflicted with tuberculosis spitting
in the hall. The board of health is
supporting the proposed ordinance and
will aid in its enforcement
Alderman Peck says he will confine
the new amendment to theatres, as he
believes by so doing the crusade in this
particular will be more effective and

Mr. R. B. Middlebrook, city coun
selor, has drafted the ordinance to pro
hibit spitting in theatres, which will be
introduced by Alderman Frank Peck
at the next council meeting. The or
dinance is almost certain to pass under
a suspension of the rules, as there is a'
general demand for it. The impression
prevailed that the existing ordinance
prohibiting spitting in public buildings
included theatres, and with the city
counselor's holding that it does not, the
need for the amendment is felt. The
proposed ordinance not only has the
t a. a . . -.
support or a great majority of the pat
rons of theatres, but is asked by the
proprietors and managers of theatres.
There are not many theatre goers who
are guilty of spitting on the floors dur
ing a performance, and yet there are
enough of them to cause annoyance
and disgust to many others.
Chief Hayes of the police force is
anxious that the ordinance be passed
at once. "If it is passed," he said this
