of after yet l water ' HURTFUL. TO THIS T'OUT. Galves'ton, Tex., Aug. 21.-- To The I do noL know of anything' more h u lo 1'hirf pui'l than t'ho con'tini'ied false publications and misstatements in reference our quarantine laws. CUr. Weinberger's abuse of our qua-ran-tine laws in yesterday's issue of The News shows a. want knowledge on 'his part of What our a n t i n e laws are, but 1-t does net fail advertise Mr. 'AVeinlaerger at the expense to the injury of Galvcs'ton, as he could have found out 'by m a k i n g 'inquiry t'he quarantine laws of Galve?ton in reference to "the f r u i t trade are t'he s-ame ·those ot' New Orleans, .Mobile. Charlci-toTi and all the gni'f ports, and all tiiat Is required of f r u i t vessels is to biiing a tiilcate from uie physician appointed by the gulf s'taitey ;tt the purt tlioy sail froiu scaling tihat SA.H! port is free from all Lagi-ous disoasos and that the vcrfsul leaves in good sanitary cond'itlion -for the port of GfUreston, and if 'arrivincr here In good comli'tion w i t h such certilinate, she be allowed, after inspection, lo- proceed -t-o Uhe- 'v'hari 'and unload. Fn ^he latter part of March or iirst of April I r.tvtified Keymer=liorfor, ^running The Gyller, 'to effect. Dr. Sweaitingen is a man o'C iliis word, and I challenge -Mr. Wc-inberger to F/how a refusal from Dr. Sweiiringtn to allow any vessel to bring- fruit to this port tha-t wa-s wiHinff 'to comply whth the gulf state quarantine fruit laws. There has not been for the last fifteen years, in a. smrif* -instil PCP, any charge whatever ·at T?e port of GiilveMoVi for to-ardinj? and inspecting iin'd admitting vessels, and NO.W Orleans charges every vessel t h a t .(i|)(- jiorl for such services. \Vo m a k charges whatever except for disinfecting ves.-els, and just about to cover co.st of same, fram $15 to $25. At New Orleans they charge more t h a n four times amount. Xow, won hi It not 'have been much better for Mr. Weinberger to have found o u t whait the quaraivtine laws G.ilveston were before jniblishinff to ·tlie world t'hat we had «n Iron wall stretched. arounil Gfllves-ton- in 't'he shape of ridiculous qiKirnnt-ine -laws and excessive cjirir- amine :liarK''«. wftiun the fat-ts In the ms« do not J u s t i f y «ny such M a publication, anil do our port and qunr.intlm. 1 a R-n'mt Injustice.
