Oar Great Death Rate Attributed
to Germs in the RiYer.
TYPHOID FEVER RAMPANT
WnshlngUmiuns Die at tho Rate of
20.00 Per Thousand STenrly, tho
Third Highest Unto in Large
Cities Golored Population and
Itefase From Cumberland Do It.
The somewhat remarkable fact is de
veloped in the death rate records of the
twenty-fie largest cltieb in the United
States for the -past year that Washington,
with a'l its Advantages of wide, clean
streets, excellent sewerage system and
freedom from the tcnemeut-houbc curse,
ih still the third highest in mortality rate.
Th death rate per 1,000 of the esti
mated population of Uie largest cities out
of 1,332 which have been reported to
Surgeon General Wyman, of tin; Marine
Hospital Jscrvlce, for the ear ending June
30, 1897. is as rollows:
Allegheny. Ta., 14.S7; Baltimore, Md.,
19.5S; Boston, Mass.. 22.53; Brooklyn, N.
Y., 20.32; Buffalo, N. Y., 13.2G; Chicago,
111., 1-U36; Cincinnati. Ohio, 16.90; Cleve
land, Ohio. 13.72; Denver, Col., 10.48;
Detroit, Mich. 14.28; Indianapolis, Iud..
12.46; LoulSMlle, Ky., 15.60; Milwaukee,

Minn., 9.25: San Francisco, Cal., 1G"G;
Syracuse, N. Y.. 15.76; Washington, D. C,
This makes New Orleans, with 27.25
deathb per year per thousand, the banner
deatli ity. Ikton Is second with 22 53
and Washington third with 20.96 per
thousand. Denver, Colo., the high-altitude
home lor consumptives, is near the bottom
of the list ith 10.48, though Minueap
olis with 9.13 and Omaha with only 6.61
deaths per thousand are even healthier,
The flat New Orleans, with its marshes
all alut, has always been high on the list.
Boston has its back bay, its consump
tion anu Its tenements, besides the btraln
of its Intellectual overwork, and always
has a high rale. But N'cw York and Balti
more and Chicago and many other cities
wheie the condition of overcrowding has
always been considered one of the great
est breeders of diseases, are all behind
Washington's sewerage system is con
sidered one of the fiucst, If not the very
best In the country The street, of the
Capital City are wide, shaded and concreted.
There is an immense park area which has
always been considered a most desirable
and healthful feature. We boast of the
parks as our "lung" and say tuat our
lung development is one of the largest
In the country The poor children
plaj in the parks and are thought to be
almost as well off as thoe which are spnt
to the mountains or the beasnore Our
terupt'rature rate compares very favorably
both as to its extremes aud Its mean rate
with other cities.
A reporter for the Times poK to
Dr. Woodward, the health ofneer, yester
day on the subject. It appears that Wash
ington has really a high dpata rate,
but there Ib much more than appears
en the surface of vital statibtlcs to bo
taken into consideration, and that Washing
ton's real rate, especially as to her white
populntio'i, Is not so bad as it lool.s com
paraHvely. "The people who estimate the popula
tion of cities are frequently wrong for
one tning," said Dr. Woodward. "In 189i
and 1S95 the estimated population on
which our death rate was figured was
185,000. When the police census wad
taken it was found that we really had
only 171,000 reople in the city. Thebe
cuies that have lower death rates accord
ing to estimated population may have
really higher rates, many of them.
"Another factor in our high death rate
Is our very large colored population. Every
Southern city with comparatively Large
colored population has, a large number
of death relatively. The death rate
among tne negroes Is always high.
"One other factor that must lie taken
Into consideration is that we are not a
boom town. Denver and other compara
tlvely new cities increase very rapidly
In population, and this increase is an
increase of adult& and not of Infants, like
Washington. This pulls down their death
rate very much necessarily, for by far
the largest part of any old cltj's mor
tality is among its infants.
"However, after taking all these facts into
consideiatiou we are pretty well upon the
list wilhc.ut a doubt and have a really
high rate. Some of the reasons for thi-
aTe easy to discover. The rates of typhoid
fever aud diarrheal deaths aw very high in
Washington and pull up the general rate
excessively Thexs are due firat to the
water supply, which is unquestionably v5ry
bad, and becund to the large number of
surface closetb, especially among the col
ored people, In the outlying sections.
"We have no longer any right to con
sider the Potomac water healthy. It is
far from it. Typhoid fever ts contracted
by eating or drinking the germs from some
other typhoid patient, and not by breathing
them. WIh regard-to the Potomac river
we in WaMilngton see the unpleasant con
dition of mlng that Cumberland, above
us, has filter beds for her water supply, bub
drains her bevverti in the river below the
city. We get the benefit of her sewage.
The distance a river flows has very little
to do with the purlfyiugofthe water. The
soluble vegetable matters containing dis
ease germs from Cumberland reach u& In
a very patent state.
"The diarrhael deaths amongRt us are
largely among the colored people Diarrheal
troubles coma largely from lack of cleanli
ness, not especially personal, but neigh
borhood cleanhness. The water supply
affects this class of diseases also.
"As for the general healthfulness of the
city's locality aside from thebe conditions
I believe that it is good. The presence
of the Eistcrn Branch and the flats un
questionably affects our death rate, but
not largely, I believe. The deaths from
malarial troubles, directly, Is small, though
loan extent, a person's vitality Is lowered
by malaria As far as location Is concerned
this factor of the flats is our only disad
vantage." Dr. Woodward believes very strongly
that the city should filter its watersupply.
In hib opinion filter bp ds would undoubted
ly largely reduce our deatli rate. He ex
presses himself very forcibly on the sub
ject. It la a matter for congratulation that
despite the Potomac and our relatively
high rate -sve are improviug steadily and
rapidly all the time. The city health now
compares most favorably with that of
twenty year a ago. Hardly another large
city in the country makes a better showing
In this way.
The first vital statistics taken were those
of 1870. In that year the deaths per
thousand among the colored population
were 40.78, among the whites 19.54, and
for the total population 26.40. The recent
EtatJ&Ucs of 1897 make the rate 28.59 for
thecolored people, 17-.il among the whites,
aad20.71for the total population.

Snpt. MncKeozie Snj-s That ?10,000
aioie 3t Needed.
Superintendent of Street Cleaning Mac
Kcnle yesterday submitted to the Com
mibsloners an addition to ills annual re
port, wuich appeared in yesterday morn
ing's Times, in which he asks for an ad'
ditional appropriation of 510,000, ncces
bary. he thinks, to keep the city's streets
piopeily cleaned. He says:
"In connection with the foregoing re
port I icspcctrully submit the following
tor the consideration of the Commissioners
and mice .mion as they may deem proper.
Iu my opinion it Is Imperatively necessary
that Congress should increase the appro
priation Cor sprinkling sweeping and clean
ing the Rtreets, and avenues, etc. for the
ptcscnt fiscal jcar. This Is made ncceb
t-ary by the increased price for machine
sweeping and the inauguration of the
band oleanlug method in parts of the
city. The action of the Commissioners In
this direction has met with tlie unanimous
approval of the press aud people, and there
Is no disputing the fact, successfully, that
the streets which are cleaned by hand
are much better cleaned than they have
ever been before.
"In many of the cities of the country
the hand sstem has been introduced, to
a greater or less extent, and has In all
cases commended Itself to the public.
In New York the entire city Is being hand
cleaned daily, and with the most gratifying
results, the death rate has been reduced
materially, and the city, from being almost
one of the dirtiest in the world, has be
come one of the cleanest and healthiest.
The increase in the number of men taken
from the ranks of the unemployed and put
to work is another subject for congratu
lation. I am of the opinion that the
amount required to continue the work on
the present scale for the entire 3 ear will
require aloub $10,000 additional to the
If the appropriation asked for ohould be
granted It would mean that Mr. Daggett,
who holds the contract for street sweep
ing, will be authorized to extend the terri
tory now covered by his men and receive
pay for the extra work at the agreed rate
COW STABLE OKDINANCE.
A Begnlntion Regarding Their Prox
imity to Dwellings.
There will be Introduced into the new
building regulations an ordinance govar
ing cow stables, as follows:
"It shall not be lawful hereafter for any

of, a cow yard, pen or btablc for dairy or
other purposes, nearer than 200 feetto any
dwelling house, other than the dwelling
houbeof the owner or keeper of such ard,
pen 01 stable; provided, however, thatnoth
ing heieln contained shall apply to persona
keeping but one or two cows for their own
use; nor be so construed as to prevent the
selling or milk by persons who keep oneor
"Any person violating the provisions of
this regulation shall, upon conviction there
of In the police court, be punished by a
fine of not more than ?5 for each day dur
ing which such violation has continued."
