The Board of Health met last evening

read the following very excellent report:
Wi I. Ml no ton, Del., Jan. 6, 1879.
To the Board of Health :—

Gentlemen I beg leave to submit
the following report for the year just
closed : We have had twenty-nine meet
ings in all. The attendance lias been
full and much activity shown in the per
formance of the work reported ami re
ferred to the various committees for their
consideiation. Various complaints made
to the Board during the year just closed,
are classified as follows : Water in cel
lars, steucii arising from cesspools, filthy
gutteis, dirty alleys, offensive pig-j>enB,
stagnant water in ditches, garbage su tier
ed to remain on the pavements, filth in
.Shipley run, had smell from tallow and
other factories, bad smell from night
carts, dead «logs, cats, rats, gnats, etc.
The above consul utes about all the kinds
of fiuisain*ts the Board have to contend
e«l
to
with, except the standing nuisance, and
one which deserves to be dealt with in
no trifling manner, aye more than a
nuisance, a fountain of death slowly but
surely sending many to an early grave.
This honorable body is aware of the
fact but is powerless to check it.
Forty thousand free and intelligent
people know the fact that when they are
slumbering in their beds at night, the
stream, the clear, sparkling, gurgling
water of the Brandywine is being pois
oned, and the only moans made use of to
stop this deathly monster is newspaper
discussions and appointments of special
committees, who sj*Mid their time in
talking instead of acting. This Board
has perfouued its duties weiland I a th
fully, according to the means at their
disposal. The estimated population of
Wilmington is 40,(88). The amount ap
propriated for th«r Health Department is
$500, and $D8J to the Registrar of Deaths
1 Burials, making a total of $»8)0 for
tlu* year 1879.
The t*s< iur«ted population of the city of
Washington I). C., is H »5,000. The ex
penditures for 1877 in the Health depart
ment, not including the report of'lie Reg
istrar of deaths and burials was $32,
902 50. Wilmington, $d<)0 lu ad. I have
no recommendations or advice to give on
this subject, but believe it time, that tins
department should not be overlook«« I
and instead of the citizens being satisfie«
with what some iires|M»i»Hible iiewspu|H*r
clerk may write. They should appeal to
this Board, where th. r« are men of intel
ligence, men of learning, men who are
willing to give the desired scientific in
formation if they are encouraged by hav
I

impurities of the Bramlywiue water,have

good, and they d «serve tli« thanks of this

I bag leuva to refer to mine maltera
which may he for your advan ȧe in the
future :
l)r. Tulllo S. Verdi, President of the
Board of llealih of Waalmißlon, L. C.,
•ays, in his luport to the President of the
United States in lbTJ : " A government
should not he niggardly in the supply of
water, any more than it abould ha in the
supply of air. E»ery drop of water is a
scavenßer, erery drop of pure water, is a
diop of health, whan it is not poisoned."
In relation to aewershe s.ys : "Woe to
our city, wue to any sewered city, if the
supply of water should he withdrawn a
hundred, nay for fifty c naecutlve hours."
A not lier »ery important rnarter is ilic
ßucstion of wholesome food. It is made
the duty of the Board of Health of Wash
inß, D. C\, by an act of Congress, to pra
»ent the sale of unwholesome food.
"Yet the means giren hy th
quite inadequate to carry out the law,
says Dr. Verdi, iu his report, " we have
but one inspector of food. I here aie in
tlie District of Columbia seien large
markets, about one hundred green gro
comuionly so called, or people who
and lisli iu stores.

There is no question in sanitary govern

some food. It atlects the tich as well a
• as the jioor, not only for a day but loi
' evc^ry day, ami tliat every tinie that 'he
mw j used to sustain life." Gentle
, tins very question should be the
prevailing one, the uppennost in your
minds ; it appears to be tlie very founda
t'on and sapping stone to eur prosperity:
pur«« aud wholesome food.
William Wolf, Esq., food inspector
the District of Columbia, speaking or
meats in his rep«»rt to the Board of
Health says: 44 Ae have three classes of
butchers, tii st, our regular butchers, who
sell tint class meat ; second class, who
sell an article imported ; and the third
class, who sell poor meats, devoid ot nu

The butchers who supply our market
have many disadvantages to contend
with, not met in other ci'ies of our p«»p
ulation ; our customers require the ten
der tine cuts for brain work."
Inspector Wolf, says.'When the farmer
turns butcher, a suspicion is at once
aroused ; them are those who would nut
hesitate to dispatch an animal wuote leg
had been accidentally broken, or some
bodily fractuts impaired, and offer the
fevered or diseased meat as food for con
sumption in the cltv." These things de
serve your 8|>eclal attention.

E. B. Fhazrk,
Secretary.
On motion of Mr. Sharp, the report
was accepted, and ordered to be record
e«l upon lb* minutes.
On b«dialf of the Committee on the
impurities of the Brandywine water,Mr.
Smith said:— 4 The committee have ao
especial report to make, but would call
especial attention, to some one who is
writing in the newspapers, who appears
to have more ktiowiedne about the
Brandywine water than the committee
themselves. 1 would way that the Brandy
wine water has not for the past twenty
five years been in as good a condition as
at present. 1 think those persons who
are writing in the newspapers and do
not sign their names, is unfair; it seems
to me that rhev have never visited the
stream, os much as the committee. Dur
ing the past year there lias been remov
ed from the vicinity of the stream 130
cesspools, and a number of other nui
sances abated, In fact all the nuis&DC<*s I
might say have been ahatsd, with the
exception of the dyestuff which comes
from Bancroft fib H« »ns mills. The ques
tion of abating that nuisance is a vexed
one, and will cost money to settle. 1
of the opinion that iu time the nuis
ance woiilii be abated. 1 think that the
ciiy is equally derelict in their duty;they
allow a large quantity of filth to run in
to the stream, by not having their drains
properly constructed, 1 do not think that
w«* should order I he parties up the creek
away, when the city authorities are
equally as bad. Jn regaril to the notices
that have appeared in the newspapers, I
have ueitber the time or inclination to
answer, perhaps the writers have their
I do not think that
the parties up the

The Committee on Accounts reported
the bill of Win. Hickev far 82fi»>l, and
John Lungreen, $28 41, as correct, and
on motion orders were directed to he
drawn foj the amounts named.
