Hamburg Described by a Well Posted
MAHT DEATHS NEVER REPORTED.
Kormannia and Eueia Passengers Tass
Hhrongh This Citj.
A LOCAL INSPECTOR'S QOEER BLUNDERS
Jacob Lohrer, of the detective force of
Cleveland, who was prominently connected
with the chase after the murderers of Chief
Hulligan, at Eavenna. O., seven years ago,
reached this city yesterday on his way
home from a four months' tour in Europe.
Mr. Lobrer spent considerable time in
Hamburg. He explained the cause of the
different statements made considering the
conditions at Hamburg.
"Some reports say Hamburg is a beauti
ful city while others say it is a veritable
slum, reeking with filth. There is every
thing in the point of view. The fact is
none of the big passenger vessels ever go
within three and hall hours' ride of Ham
burg, only the freight vessels coing into
the harbor. Passengers are unloaded at a
point three hours' ride irom the city and
are taken to the depot in the improved
suburban portion. That part of the city
has wide streets and is beautiful. Tourists
don't see the old city down around the har
bor. It is the most unhealthy place you
could imagine. The streets are from seven
to ten feet wide, there are no sewers except
to a few large buildings and there is every
where a horrible smelL The tide does not
carry off the water in the harbor and it is
fulfot slime and filth, emitting a frhtful
stench, which is always present. There are
no backyards to the houses, the people live
on the streets most of the time atd are as
dirty as can be. It is in this district the
cholera is raging. Thousands have died
there the authorities never heard of."
Quarantined Tassengers Tass Through.
A number of passengers from the cholera
ships Normannia and Eugia arrived in this
cjty on their way "West yesterday morning.
They had been released from Fire Island
nnarantine the previous day. Most of them
were American residents who had been
caught on the plague ships for their return
The trunks, hampers and other baggage
of the travelers were plastered all over
with bright yellow posters on which in
large, black letters was announced the fact
that they had been disinfected by Health
Officer Jenkins' men in New York. The
luggage lying on the Union station plat
form was seen by the way passengers com
ing in on local trains and caused quite a
scare among them.
Andrew Starely, Jane Deehan and Cath
erine Beehan, from Soottand, on the
Bteamer Furnessia, and bound for Iowa,
passed throueh Pittsburg Wednesday, and
were stopped at the Ohio State line and re
turned to this city because they had thrown
away their health certificates issued in New
York. Yesterday Dr. J. G. McCandless
examined them, iound them healthy, issued
them new certificate and started them on
their war with an injunction to keep the
health passports until they reached their
Looking for a Suspect.
The health officers are looking for Frank
Donucn, who came from Liverpool on the
steamer State of Nevada, reaching this city
last Sunday. Donnen was inspected on ar
rival, but said there was no cholera on the
Nevada. It has been learned since that
one death occurred on that ship.
The officers of the Holy Ghost College
have sent letters to The bisrATCH deny
ing the statement made last Sunday that
their building was not in a good sanitary
condition and asking that two letters re
ceived from Chief Brown be published. One
of these letters quotes Mr. Taggart, one of
the plumbing inspectors, as saying that he
"did not understand how the newspapers
got such an adverse criticism," as he was
satisfied the college building was in proper
condition. The other letter, dated yester
day morning, states there is;no controversy
between the Public Safety Department and
Holy Ghost College, although there is with
the third ward public school. It again
states that the Chief nor anv employe of his
department had said anything against the
condition of the Holy Ghost College.
Inspector Tagsart last Saturday con
demned the sanitary condition of the Holy
Ghost College and gave out the original
copy of his report from which the report to
Chief Brown was made. On Wednesday
afternoon Inspector Tacgart stated that a
member of each of two prominent plumbing
firms in this city had accompanied him on a
second inspection of Holy Ghost College,
and had verified his original conclusion,
that the sanitary conditions were not good.
Mr. Taggart at'the same time made use of
vigorous language to emphasize his belief
in the truth of his report as published.
More Garbage Furnaces Kceded. .
The question of more garbage furnaces is
urged by Chief Brown and others as the
only solution of the carbage question. Mr.
Brown wants 10 or 12 new ones located in
the various districts of the city and a regu
lar system of collection. The present fur
nace costs ?3,000, but he wants larger ones
that would cost from 54,000 to 55,000 each,
w Inch v ould, with coal for fuel, consume
Colonel T. P. Eoberts says burning is the
onlv proper way to dispose of, garbage. In
ale'tter to the Mayor relative to Chief
Brown's efforts to have earbage dumped
below Davis Island dam instead of above,
Colonel Eoberts says: "I recognize the lact
that a great problem must be confronted by
our city authorities in the near future in
providing other means for the dispone! of
garbaee than throwing it into the r iver.
Individuals I think it should be burned,
but besides the matter of the furnaces to do
such work, there is the method of collect
ing the garbage to be determined upon.
By all means the poor as well as the rich
but the poor most particularly should
.. .nr.A tn keen carbaee ves-
sels, which if necessary will be col
lected dailv and without charge by the
city. It is "far better for them, in my opin
ion, to empty their garbage in the open
streets, than to conceal it until it becomes
loathsome heaps in their back 7rdv as
many of them da Speaking of George
T?r.' rfim that lie could not get dump
boats below the dam in the present water
stage, the Colonel adds: "I am told by
Captain Free that his boats draw 20 inches
of water, and at present there is not suffi
cient water in the river below Davis island
dam for their navigation below that point,
but I think there is a narrow channel
known to pilots which would permit or
flats being taken down the river to Dead
Man's island below Sewickley."
Mavor Kennedy and Chief Murphy fayor
the burning of garbage and want another
furnace in the lower part of Allegheny.
Butler Scared of Cholera.
Messrs. Harper and Schaun, Councilmen
of the town of Butler, Pa., were in Alle
gheny vesterdav making inquiries concern
ing the'manaeeinent of the sanitary affairs
of the city. The cholera 6care has aroused
the town Councils of Butler to the fact
that the sanitary condition of their
borough is very bad, and Messrs. Harper
and Schaun were elected a commit
tee to visit some of the larger
cities in the State to learn
how sanitary affairs were managed
there. Superintendent McLaughlin, of the
Board of Health, showed them around the
citv. and gave them all the information he
could in regard to sanitary matters. The
gentlemen from Butler were much pleased
with the garbace furnace, and expressed
great surprise that the burning of the garb
age caused so little disagreeable smell as it

A Valuable Archseolosical Find.
While excavanns: on the site of old Troy,
it is reported a bronze plate bearing curious
characters was iound and bent to Europe
tor translation. It turned out to be a proph
esy of one of the priestess that in the
nineteenth century the women of the world
would be baking with Camellia flour, the
richest, purest, and most regular flour in
the world, and made in Pittsburg by the
Marshall-Kennedy Hilling Company. Curi
ous, wasn't it? But it has been iulfilled, tor
more women are using Camellia now than
any other btand sold here.
