BOARD OF HEALTH.
MESSAGE FROM THR MAYOR
OONCRNIN( THK ACTION
OF THK HOARD.
TIIKY ARK HARD ATWORK, AND
JJOINU THK llESf TUEY
, OAN UNDER'! HK OiH
CUMSTANORa. At tbe meeting of tha council held on
Thursday afternoon, the mayor read tbe
following meisago concerning the doings
of tho board of health : '
Gentleman of tho City Council :
At chairman of your board of health I
deem it highly pronur that you should be
maue acquainieu wuu wuas oas uoeu uuuv,
and wbr.l we aro at presont trying to do
to clean up our city. One week alter lb
organir.ttiun of tbe present administra
tion, 1 as mayor istuoa my procla
mation cslltni: upon all cliuont to clean up
their premises. On tbe '11 lU of May I Is
sued another order, nuiuying an
citizens that tho police of the city were
ituthorlzed to make arrests wherever
nuUancvt were found, without further
warning. On tbo2'Jth I Issued a circular
notifying all parties wbota all dead car
ens us, rubbish, etc., should be deposited,
and In fact 1 may say it has been one con
linual trv to clean up tha city for the last
six weeks, and I may say, with a good
deal of luccetl. A great many arrests
havo been made, and a ureal many moro
could be mmle if tho ordinances
wero such as could cover all
the catet. 1 cannot too strongly
urge tha amendment of sections 80, 81 nnd
82 of ordinance No. -1. They ought to be
uiado moro binding ami thoroujn and
made so thut a notification from the board
of health to parties maintaining nuisances
would bo all the evidenco requlrod to
make a caso for tho city. I beg loavo fur
thur to sialo that nil boats arriving hern
tor the last two works have bee'n boardoi
by the chief of police or by ono of his
incers, anu strict ei animation mad
anu snouiu any person be found Hex
on any boats arriving hero the ofllrors
re ordiTeil to call n physician who de
c let u na her it it a caso to order tho
b nt into quarantine or not. This am
braces all ut tho rules in sections I, 2 an 1
.', ordinince No C; and it will bo ss)
that the 1 o rd of braltb has fully enrm- up
1 1 too oruina'icei oi in" c ly in tm par
Ucutur. 'Die mayor has ro power to
tabllsh a quarantine other tbnn stated
tbove, and has no poaer lo employ men
or boards on any given point. Ho i
merely an eiecuti'vo officer, and it such
does the best he can undor tbe ordinances
of tho city. Should the council deem ih
presont powert sumcient, tboy need not
change them; but if, on the other band
tboy think the time bat come to have
some mature deliberations on tha sick
ness now prevailine in Memphis. I honp
they will lose no timo In doing so, and do
it in a quiet, expeditious, and In as tcien
title a manner at possible.
I have tli honor to enclose a circular
sent me yesterdty from Evantvillo, In
diana, and rocommend that it bo printed
in all thn pipers nf the city, and the rlti
iz n be nventlv requested to tupnlv them
pve with a copy. whn printed, of the
said city paper. JOHN wood, Mayor,
Tbe following it tbe circular referred to
by tho mayor :
The board of health have Issued the fol
lowing circular: Cleanliness and ventilation
are ot the utmost importance as health
measures. Accumulations of animal or
vegetable matters, liable to decay, should
bo avoided. Cellar and out-bolises should
be Ireiiucntly and thoroughly clo.ncd, and,
ir need be, disinfected. Wbcre tho water
ot cisterns emits a smell it should bo de
odorized. Privy vault should be disinfected
fufflulcntly olten to prevent any foul
odor. Drains, gutter and alley, where
slop Is thrown, should be UMulected at least
three time n week with common lime or
some of the preparations named below.
Walls and fences 11 plv In absorb moisture
shoiild be freely coated with lime whitewash.
Disinfectant common charcoal finely pow
dered answers well for cisterns. One quart
thrown Into a cistern or ordinary size will
deodorize it lor six we t. Should the
wa't r be very foul, permanganate ol potash
should be used. One ounce fill cents! will
purily a buudrcu-barrel cMeru. Common
copperas (0 to lo cents per pound) is one of
the cheapest disinfectant lor privy vault,
nu iiuunus oi conuerai to turee
rallon of water, some of which
hould be llseil dallv. will imrlrv
in ordinary nrivv for three woo s. L'arlio-
late ot lime (20 cents per pound) Is perhaps
the most decided and efficient disinfectant,
but lor odor u-u It Is objectionable because
of Ita tarry smell. One pound will purity a
privy tor tnroe week, r or household use,
liromochloralum (50 cent per pint) i most
desirable because of Its bating no odor.
One pint added to nine pint of water. II
occasionally sprinkled about or placed tn
open ve-sci or poured on sponge tut
pendedln the air, will thoroughly disinfect
iiny room, cellar or privy from ono to turee
wees.
