Commissioners Approve the Recom
t mendations as to the Crematory.
; The Commissioners have approved the
recommendation of Health Officer "Wood
ward, in regard to the report of Inspector
Beaumont, relative to the complaint of
certain citizens as to odor emanating
from the new Smith garbage crematory,
located on tho grounds back of the old
Naval Observatory. Dr. Woodward recom
mended the adoption of Inspector Beau
mont's report, finding the crematory peo
ple guilty of failure to live up to their con
tract, to furnish a plant of 100 tons daily
capacity and one that would be free from
odor. The Commissioners approval of the
report therefore Btamps- the concern as a
Foi borne time complaints have reached
the health office that noxious odors were
escaping from the furnace, and making
the surrounding atmosphere disagreeable
to the citizens of the vicinity These
complaints were all investigated and found
to 1h well founded. About two weeks
Jago Inspector Beaumont was detailed -by
the health office to watrh the ciematory
end make dally reports. Ills reports,
confirmed the complaints of the citizens.
The trouble is said to be due partly to au
Insufficient capacity and the consequent
oveieharginj; of the furnace, and also to
an inadequate covering of the shells, re
Bulling In the escape of the odor. Both
these defects, it is tiid, can be overcome
'without serious difficulty.
i Tl.c capacity of the furnace at present
Is between seventy-five and eighty tons
dally, as against 100 tons daily capacity
promised in tiie contract. The contractors
have advanced the argument that they
luve not added the other twenty-five tons
capacity because of the fact that they
preferred to wait until the Commissioners
took home action in the matter of the com
plalnts. The Commissioners will give a hearin g to
tbe crematory people at an early date.
