Annual Report of Health Commis
Slattrrs tf traet and Information and
. SnczeHtlonti of Interest t the
PnMlc-A thlfotm Sewer
The anrual report of Health Commis
sioner G. L. Eyster for the year just
ended con ins much of general interest
f the department of our municipal gov
ernment hich is of ereatest importance
to the people sanitary regulation.
In his report Dr. Eyster says that "al
though th re has been throughout the
civilized world an unusual pre
valence cf disease, and in many re
gions a very high mortality during the
past year, our own community is - to be
congratulated on the fact that its death
rate has l een comparatively low. The
total numt er of deaths for the year was
204, as compared with 183, in the year
preceding, an increase of only 16, which
c-'Uld be axountod for easily by the in
creased population alone, without looking
further, but a eiu lv of the mortuary stat
istics of tl is lcprn will show that more
than the numbtr of this excess was due
to the prevailing La Grippe and its com
plications. "According to the population given the
city by the last United Stateaxensus our
mortality for the year would amount to
about 14 per 1,000. I am well satisfied,
however, that the population has so in
creased that an estimate of 18,000 is
f airly com ervative; on which basis the
death rate would be 11 J per 1,000, a
rate well below that of most cities of
"Another pleasing feature of the vita
statistics is the comparative absence of
contageoiH disease. A comparison of
contageous disease statistics for the last
four years may be of interest:
Cases were reported:
For the yeai ending April 80, 1?89 131
" " - " 1890 !ifi9
" " 1891 55
" " " 1S93 51
The number of cases reported for the
past year, 51, have been, the doctor says,
sporadic cutbursts, scattered throughout
the year. Sanitary authorities agree, he
holds, that contagions diseases are pro
pogated atid spread by sanitary condi
tions. Tte comparative absence there
frem of coalageous diseases from the city
shews its good.sanitary condition.
The doctor says he is pleased to say
tbat the u? e of well water in the city is
gradually diminishing. Each advance of
the city water system closes up numbers
of old wells which are continually pro
ducing sickness, and on this account the
commissioner reiterates the warning to
the public against the use of well water,
the source he says, of many a days' sick
ness. "Wbile," he says, ' we may get
some refute and dirt in our water from
the 'great father of waters,' yet it comes to
us in an oxydized form of comparatively
inocuous character, for which reason there
is a strong recommendation for the rapid
extension of the city water system.
The health commissioner speaks at
length of the importance of the
system of removal of garbage
andthewcrk accomplished during the
year nnder the supervision of the health
department, and speaks of the careless
ness of citizens in providing receptacles
for their garbage , and tbat considerable
tact and persistency is necessary in the
men engaged in gathering to overcome
On thejquestion ot sewers, Dr. Eyster
urges thejsdoption "of a practical and
definite plan of sewers as the most press
ing sanitary measure needed at the pres
ent time, and recommends that a sanitary
engineer b; employed to map out the
present severs and propose a plan and
system that may be built up to in the future.
Such a course would undoubtedly prove
true economy in saving and rebuilding the
sewers of iiadcquate size, the construc
tion of those of larger capacity than ne
cessary, th'." paralleling of those compe
tent for more than one street, and in
many other ways, the doctor holds, pro
mote our snnitary wellf are.
