A VALUABLE WORK.
We are in receipt of the "Advance
'Sheets" of the great work, entitle(
"Riparian Lands of the Mississipp
River, Past, Present, Prospective.'
This stupendous work is in the hands
of Mr. Frank H. Tompkins, a rela
tive of our young friend, Mr. F. 11
Schneider, and we are glad to sal
that he is making excellent headway.
These "Advance Sheets" are part of
the comprehensive work which is
being prepared for general and
gratuitous circulation in commercial
circles over the entire Union, on be
half of, and withl the complimnents of,
the people who live either in, or on
the margin of, the alluvial districts
of the Mississippi River. There are
four excellent articles by Judge

member of the Mississiplpi River
Commission, and Major. St. L. Cop

and representative men. T'he lii

HEALTH AND TRADE.
N. O. 'rime-I)ernmocrat.
Thile sumnmer now coining so rap
idly to a close in New ()rlenis has
hein one of the best this city has
ever known, hoth in the matter of
health and trade. Perhaps the twon
go together, at least in this section.
New Orleans, as we Lhave noted,
has dlone an exceptionally large sum
mer hoinmies'. Its arrivals and clear
aeces of vessiels Inive been far in ex
cess of previutis years, and yet we
have not hadl as many vessels here
as we coull easily have handled, and
there have been frequent complaints
of a shtrtage on tonnage.
As for the health record, it is
without au equal. There have been
oecasiornally n-eceks in the past where
the relports have been good; but this
year they a.e gootd not for a single
week oti for the whole summer.
Take this month, August, for in
stance. Tlhe following has been the
mortality pier thisanmd per annum
for the whites-thle figures are Il
imn,,t a1 goodt even for our colored
pululation, but tirhec negro death rate
is sime ihat fli"Iuituiliat nill n the mIor
talitv for thet whliites is a better test
of the he-alith of this city:
Week entiing- Daths per 1000
Aug. 11.... - ................ 13.12
Aug. 3.......................15 . 5
Average lfor the month.... .....1.0.3
lThis i far below the average of
American cities. As we have noted,
the death rate given in Chicago aid
other Western cities has been fraud
ulent, based on swollen anti extrav.
gant population figures. There will
have to he an entire new calculation.
iand we Inmay expect to see tihe death
rate in COicago advance 25 per cent
aund in Cinciunati 30 per cent, for the
population of tihese cities upon which
their mortality was estimated waHs
exaggerated to that extent. hBut
even with their inflated population
their health, as shown by tihe mor
tality tables, was not!hing like as
<good as New Orleans' August re
cord. If we can keep it up for the
entire year it will mean only 2,4.0
deaths of white people for 1900, and
it will put New Orleans in the front
rank as the healthiest city in the
Union. Perhaps the improvements
which we have already begun, and
which we are to make this the most
sanitar- city in the worli, are aTread -
daking ,their intlutince lclL.
