m CITY LOT
BOARD OF HEALTH PER.
SUADES ALDERMEN TO
SUGGEST ? LOT
Which Meets With the Approval
Of the Board of Health and
Report Back to
Timt city council will not proceed
with the erection of a municipal barn
on the East Market street site in the
rear, of the city hail, ta practically a
certainty, since, following a joint
meet lug yesterday afternoon with the
board of health, who protested vig
orously to the erection of the stables
on that sile or In any thickly popu
lated sec?lou of the city, a committee
was appointed to suggest a* suitable
site-conferring with the board of
health and getting thair approval of
the lot which it Ia proposed to select
-and report back to council at a
meeting in the near ft miro.
Some days ,ago when . council an- .
thorized a special committee to call
for bids and award a contract for
the erection ot a city bm council had
in mind the erection of the stable
building on the city's lot on Bast
Market street In the rear of the city
hail. The beginning of work upon
the proposed barn was interrupted by
one of the contractors who submit'
ted a coinpetetive bid and failed to
secure the Job submitting to council
charges of fraud in the letting of: the
contract. In the meantime the bosh)
of health held a meeting'and framed
resolutions for presentation to city
council protesting ?g?.?r.st erection of
tho barn. At a Joint session of the
two bodies held yesterday afternoon
at fi o'olock in council chamber the
questing of the advisability ot erect
ing the barn not only on the. city's
lot tn tho rear ot the etty hal) hut
anywhere In the city limits was
threshed out, with the resulta already
Dr. W. P. Ashmore, chairman of
thc board ot health, announced after
the convening of the Joint session, that
Dr. w. H. Hardin, secretary of the
board, would present the .statement
of the beard of health. Dr. Nardin
characterised the eity'.i present sta
bles as being indecent and unfit to
be in any community that pretends
to be civilized. He pointed out that
there was no means of- disposing ot
the offal from the horse and mute
stables and that th? sanitary carts of
the city andreana which frere placed
about houses where there were ty
phoid patients fer the reception ot
excreta from. the sick room were al-.
lowed to stand in the stable yard?
exposed to flies and tho elements.
There have been in the past several
caaes of typhoid fever In the vicinity
of tho etty hall, he stated, and there
is little doubt but that the cases were
traceable to conditions in these city
stables. If council persists in building
tho barn on the city tot. Dr: Nardin
stated, the board of health will re
quire it to be made so thoroughly
cleanslble that the ' cost of erecting
and maintaining ? such a structure
would be prohibitive. He urged the
council to have the barn built out
side- the city limits .Stuuld council
on the other hand, build a stable
for horses and mules on the lot in
the rear of the city ball, be stated,
the board of health would-not permit
the sanitary carts to be placed there,
and this would force council to go
to the expense" of building a second
barn somewhere outside the cttv tor
the storage of these carts. From the
standpoint of economy, be stated, he
would urge council to build but one
barn and build it outside the etty.
Dr. .2. A, Hines, superintendent of
the Anderson county hospital and a
member of the State board ot health
endorsed the remarks made by Dr.
Nardin, and told of observations he
had mads while in Ixmdott last sum*
mer. He found, ho stated,.that lu
ot the most thickly populated
tiona cf Lor don there had be*a
great redaction in the number of cu
of severe sickness, and especially
pno?d, and upon investigation
found! that thl? condition l ei
