Public sentiment is against permit

in tho city limits, and In providing for
the new cemetery a tlte several miles
nway from tho center of. population
will be chosen.
"Placing tho cemetery sites a long
distance from the city limits Is a nec
essary step and must be taken sooner
or later," said Mr". Porter while dis
cussing tho projected recommenda
tion this morning.
"Of courso the added cost of body
transportation will work a hardship to
the poorer element of the population,
but the location of burying near resi
dence sections is a detriment to pub
lic health and must be done away with.
"In choosing the new site, however,
care will bo taken not to establish it;
so far outsldo the city as to mako the
funeral expense prohibitive."
