Your excellent editorials pointing out that germs do not cause influenza and that masks do not prevent it, have moved the Fresno Republican to characterize such discussions as illustrations of "bigoted ignorance," and to declare that "on matters of public health, newspapers ought not to mislead the people by campaigns of dogmatic misrepresentation of the plainest and most demonstrable facts."
Now if there is any subject on which there is dense ignorance and a paucity of facts,—if we accept the testimony of medical men,—that subject is the influenza. Hence when experiments at Goat Island demonstrated that the disease is not contagious as has been supposed, and experience with masks in California proved that, contrary to the claim made for them, they have no virtue, the time was opportune for bringing these facts before the public and commenting upon them editorially. The Enquirer embraced the opportunity, and various newspapers throughout the state have shown their appreciation of the editorials by republishing them.
