TRANSPORTATION OF DEAD BODIES IN THE UNITED STATES.

During the past summer many inquiries were received in regard to the shipment, from Cuba and other points, of the bodies of those who died during the Spanish-American war. The following correspondence shows the nature of the replies sent, the requirements of State and local authorities being published in the Public Health Reports:

WAR DEPARTMENT,

Washington, D. C., August 3, 1898. DEAR SIR: The Department is in receipt of numerous communications from relatives and friends of officers and enlisted men who have lost their lives in the Santiago campaign relative to the transportation of their remains to this country. It has been found impracticable to deal satisfactorily with requests of this character, owing to the uncertainty which exists as to the bearing of the quarantine regulations upon the matter.

Advices are desired as to whether the bringing of such remains from feverinfected districts conflicts with the quarantine regulations, and the Department would therefore be pleased to receive, at an early date, expression of your views regarding this question. Very respectfully,

G. D. MEIKLEJOHN,

Assistant Secretary of War. The SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY,

TREASURY DEPARTMENT,

Washington, D. C., August 18, 1898. Sir: In reply to your letter of the 3d instant, desiring to be advised whether the bringing into the United States of the remains of officers and enlisted men who have lost their lives in the Santiago campaign conflicts with quarantine regulations, I have to say that each State or municipality has its own quarantine regulations governing such importation, and I would respectfully suggest that relatives and friends desiring the return of bodies be informed that application should be made to the health officer of the port where bodies are desired to be landed, who will furnish all the information necessary. If the bodies are to pass through one State into another, similar information will have to be obtained from each State respectively. Respectfully, yours,

W. B. HOWELL,

Acting Secretary.

NATIONAL QUARANTINE REGULATIONS CONCERNING BODIES OF THOSE

DYING FROM CERTAIN INFECTIOUS DISEASES.

The United States Quarantine Regulations provide for the proper treatment of bodies of those who have died at sea from cholera, yellow fever, typhus fever, or smallpox, as follows:

REGULATIONS TO BE OBSERVED AT FOREIGN PORTS, ETC.

ARTICLE VI, PAR. 7. The dead should be enveloped in a sheet saturated with one of the strong disinfecting solutions, without previous washing of the body, and at once placed in a coffin hermetically sealed, or buried at sea.

10918_51

The regulations to be observed at ports and at the frontiers of the United States define clearly what shall be done with the bodies of those dying of cholera, viz:

ARTICLE VI, PAR. 9. The body of no person dead of cholera shall be allowed to pass through quarantine. The body should be cremated if practicable. If not, it should be wrapped, without preliminary washing, in a sheet saturated with a solution of bichloride of mercury, 1 to 500, and buried, surrounded by caustic lime.

The Interstate Quarantine Regulations state as follows on the subject of the transportation of the bodies of those dead from quarantinable disease:

ARTICLE III, PAR. 5. The body of any person who has died of a quarantinable disease shall not be transported save in hermetically sealed coffins, and by the order of the State or local health officer.

STATE REGULATIONS. In order to ascertain clearly the State regulations, if any, on this subject of transportation of dead bodies, either from one locality in a State to another in the same State or from one State to another, I addressed the following letter to the various State boards of health throughout the country:

WASHINGTON, D. C., August 24, 1898. SIR: I have to respectfully request that you will furnish this Bureau with a copy of the laws and regulations governing the admission to and transit through your State of bodies of persons dying of contagious disease or otherwise.

An early reply is desired for the reason that many inquiries are made of this Bureau from friends of soldiers who die in Cuba and Porto Rico, who wish the bodies returned to the United States. Respectfully, yours,

WALTER WYMAN,

Supervising Surgeon-General, U. S. M. H. S. Replies were received from a majority of the States, and the following abstracts of the same were prepared and published, as before stated:

ARKANSAS. No body of any person dying of contagious disease is permitted shipment into or through the State except in very cold weather, and then it must be accompanied by a certificate that it has been thoroughly disinfected and the coffin hermetically sealed and incased in a close box. Under these conditions a permit will be issued, provided there be no delay in transit.

COLORADO. The State board of health has adopted in full the rules and regulations formu. lated and recommended by the combined committees representing the National Conference of State Boards of Health, the National Association of Undertakers, and the National Association of Baggage Masters.

CONNECTICUT.

According to section 113 of the general statutes, a dead body is allowed transportation from or into the limits of any town in the State, provided there be attached to the coffin or case containing such body a written or printed permit
