Medical Society Refuses to Nominate Evanston Commissioner of Health.
—The Evanston Branch of the Chicago Medical Society has declined to accede to the mayor's request for the nomination of a commissioner of health in view of the facts that the city is unable to remunerate adequately the service of a physician of the type required, and that the honor of the office has been lowered by placing the health department under control of a new officer, the director of public safety.
