New Orleans. July 27, 187. )
As It lonomes nnessa.ry for the preservation
of the health of the city at this season of the
year, that. every ponsible effort should be made
towards keeping the public avenues, gutters
and alleys clean and freen from all offenelve
matter, I hereby respectfully call ullpon the pub
lic to assist the authorities by complying with t
the following requests, to wit:
I. Such residents as have yard hydrants are s
r-queested to permit same to run a sufficletlt
time to wash away rubbish, filth, etc., and to
render the street gutters fresh and clean. This
step becomes necessary as many of the cross
streets, or streets parallel with the river, are
without water plugs, and the dllflculty hereto
fore experienced in flushing these gutters be- E
ing mainly due to defeotlvo. drainage and the
want of water.
2. Residents will pleorse place, or Instruct I
their servants to place, the garbage in boxes In
front of their dwellings ibefore 8 o'clock a. m.,
prlor to the city carts making their rounds. A
strict adherence to this plan will remove, in a
great measure. the cause of the great number of
complaints concerning the non-removal of
I therofore earnestly request all good cltlzens
to aid the authorities in keeping the streets I
and gutters clean and healthy, and In acsisting
to remove any waste or offensive scattering
If a proper spirit is manifested by the public
in this respect the workings of this department
will be greatly facilitated, and much of the
cause for complaInt heretofore existing mate
rially obviated. JOHN MOcACAFFREY,
