made by that body, is given below.
Dr. lkrnlna Rseerl.
Te the Honorable Legislative Council :
Gntlii I have the honor to
eubmit the tollowing report ol the
Board of Health lor the year ending
December 31, 1S5. T&e year was an
except onally healthy one, and while
general climatic conditions may hare
been nnnaaany lavoraoie, iue
freedom from epidemic disease, with
a lower death rate calculated upon the
eaine estimated population, mast be
due, in a great measure, to the Im
proved sanitary condition oi tue cuj,
the enfircement of the health ordi
nances and operations oi tne neaiin
With a steaany increasing popula
tion, which is apparent and conceded,
and which 'is sUested by improve
ments in every part ol the city, tne
nnhsr nf deaths for the year is 13
fess than for ISM, and only 81 in ex-
CeSS OI i. Din, X luiua, uouiuu
stratea very clearly an improvea con
dition of the public health of the city,
due to local sanitation.
In calculating the aeain rate per
irwi nn an eatiroalea population,!
take the tame figures used in the two
sippi river and preventing farther nol- j
intion ol tne Dayou num iuio suuii
I will atsin direct yonr attention to
the importance of flush tanks and
ventilation openings on the old sew
ers, which nerve the greater part of
the business portion of the city.
They contxin sewer gas which is at
times very offensive to some houses
connected with them. This, I think,
could be preventea, or at least very
materially improved in this way. Five
of these flush tanks are needed (see
last report!, and with the ventilation
openings could be made at an esti
mated cost ox vow. .
THE WATIB tVPFlT.
I have nothing, additional t suggest
in regard to the present water supply
other than to empbaiiie the objec
tions made in previous reports, noth
ing having occurred to change she
opinion then espreeeea.
As the subject is no nnder consid
er t ion by a special committee, ap
pointed by you to investigate and re
pott on the practicability of obtaining
the supply from another source or
from another point of intake above
the possibility ef pollution on Wolf

supply will be abandoned as early ai

STAKES CLOSED TO DAY
Two gallant members ol the Fire
Department bod their breath qiite
taken away yesterday afternoon by
the presentation ot handsome gold
medals, appropriately inacnoeu; At
3 o'clock a number of firemen, mem
bers ol the city government and other
gathered in the office cf Chitf Cleary,
and a messenger was sent for Thomas
Cox, the engineer at No. 4, and John
Kehoe, fireman ol No. 1. No intimit
tion had been given them of the sur
prise in store, anii they bttrayea weir
anxiety in the most unmistakable way,
when they entered the chitf. 'a oU.ce
and President Hadden said to them i
"Boys, serious charges are made
against you, and vou are suspended
during the pleasure ol the chief." But
when they caw Chief Clary hand the
sptaker a couple cf velvet-covered
boxes, they realised that their suspen
sion was already at an end. In it. few
well-chosen words, President Hadden
presented a medal t each; a lew
broken words of thanks were uttered,
and the party disbanded.
The medals were very elaborate
and exceedingly handsome. Kacept
In the mat'er ol Inscription they were
exactly alike. From either end of a
tralolit hr. ornament! with scroll
work, depends a small chain, catthing

From the whle depends a fireman s

unoeara the name of Thomas Cox, and
rnnnrl the medillion the legend,
"Recovered boy Irom vjouk cxiuare

the name ol John Kehoe, and the
words, "Rescued boy iroiupublio cis

TBI ACTS REWARDED.
The medals are very elaborate, of
pure gold, and must have been very
costly. The gallant wearers have the
fullest regard oi tneir coruiuies, wuu
feel that they bask, in a manner, in
the reflected radiance ol the badgea.
Both incidents wnicn tne pauges are
intended to commemorate are still
fresh in the public mina. iie one
...nins in th latter Dart of last sum
mer a lit'Je boy playing about the
fountain in Court 8quare, whose bailn
was filled with muddy water, suppeu
and fell in, and, though he cried pit
eously for aid each Ume he rose to the
surface, not a hand was reached forth
to save him, tnougu a uuauu ui ""
strong men stood near. Cox, who
was passing the square, ran at the top
of his speed to the fountain the minute
he received a hint oi tne irouom uu
sprang in just as the boy disappeared
for the last lime. He drew the body
out, and every possible means to re
store Hie was tnea, uui wuuuut .
The other case was similar, though
the result more gratifying. A tem
porary covering placed over the mouth
of a tire cistern on Adams street, near
Third, was removed by a venturesome
youngster living in the-neighborhood,
who lost his balance and tumbled In.

The continued growth of the city
demanils a corresponding increase in
the sewerage area. The extension of
the mains through the Ninth and
Tenth Wards should not be longer
delayed as the population of these
suburban wards is increasing as rap
idly as that ol any portion oi iue
city, and this increase throws a corre
sponding amount of work upon the
garbage service, wuicu is uuw is
beyond its capacity. I, therefore,
think it economy in the end, besides
answering the necessities of the pub
lic health interest to do the greatest
amount of work possible in this direc
tion the ensuing year.
The following statement of work
done during the year in this depart
ment is furnished me by Mr. Anthony
Boss of the Engineer's office:
Sewer connections to date, includ
ing water closet j, bath tubs, slop
sinks, cellar drains, etc., 1140. The
connections made during the year of
like character were 740. Three hun
dred and two house connect ons were
made at an average cost of $6 25 each,
and 100 obstructions removed at an
average cost cf $7 3-5 each.
Eight-tenths cf a mile of new sew
ers were laid, which, added tD thoee
previously in opeiation, now gives 41 0
miles in operation. . . .
The intercepting; or relief sewer,
from Bayou Gayoeo to the river along
Main street is not yet completed, there
remaining a space of 1819 feet be
i.un tha aant and west ends. Four
teen hundred and eignt leei oi mis
work is done, which includes bridge
over Bayou Gayow, connecting east
and west maina, 270 feet of 15-inch
vitrified pipe, 018 feet of 24-inch iron
pipe and 490 feet of 24-inch vitrified
pipe, five man-boles and two lateral
connections at a total cost of $8476 18.
Distance to be finished this year, 1819
The estimated cost of this work,
when completed, is about 13,000. The
nlntinn of this important work will
do away with the openings now in the
fifteen-inch mains on each aide of
Bayou Gayoso spoken of in previous
reports, and so reduce tbeir service by
iakintr all the sewage from south of
Monroe Btreet directly to the Missis-
Notes About Familiar Sports.
