A repicsentatlve of the Intklmqknckr
called at the factory of ltose, Brethers A
Hnrtmae te-day. Mr. David Hese, of the
linn, said all the improvements suggested
by the beard of health had been made.
City water was taken Inte the building,
new flush water closets of the latest im
proved make had been put in and the
building thoroughly disinfected.
In all 230 persons were employed and he
expected work te be resumed en Monday
next. He had no theeiy te advance as te
the cause of the sickuess, but did net bo be bo
lleve that the wnter used produced the
Illness of the ompleyos. He had consulted
soveral physlciuns and all had diflurent
vlews us te the cause of the Illness el the
empleyes. The beard of health, he said
have been invited te the factory te make a,
thorough Investigation of the sanitary
arrangements sluce the Improvements
woie made.
The members of the firm drank the same
water aud while feeling uncomfertablo at
times it hud no ether effect en them. One
physician attributed the Illness totheolfcct
of the bad well water en the lining of the
The health commissioner, in his report
published en Inst Friday, says: "The
source of the water supplied te this factory,
bath for luunlug the snuie and for drink
ing pui poses, Is from a well situated in a
cellar of a private heuse in the rear of
the factory en West King street; the
well is euclosed by a circular stene
wall surrounding It completely, remov
ing thoreforo as far as possible all
seurce of external contamination. The
water Is conveyed dlrectly through a large
pipe, which empties into the large tank in
the fourth lloer of the factory ; as befere
mentioned, the well Is net, us could be as
certained, in clese proximity te any water
closets or out-houses, or Indeed te any pol
luting seurce trem contamination, there there thero
fero it may be stated here that the health
commissioner does net consider the water
supply of this factory in any way respon
sible for the many cases of typhoid aud
malarial favors which have occurred
among the empleyes of this factory."
An examination made te-duy of the well
mid its surroundings, fiem which the
water supply was derived up te Satur
day, mey threw bome light en the sub
ject. The well Is en the premises occupied
by Mrs. Kopllnger, and part is en the
alley und patt In her cellar. It was walled
up te pi even t accident. This cellar Is
damp f lem water that Hews into it, but
from vv here cannot be clearly scen.
In order te drain the damp cellar, pipes
were lam mat counccieu wuu mis wen.
These (iliies ran from the location of two
em ill springa and were Joined in a Y u
short UUtance from the well, and tills drain
age of the cellar Is thought te have some
connection with llie prevailing sickness.
Tne trim cause of the slckuess In the
I judgment el" physicians who have loekod
at tills well uuu suireumungs was uie
water used by the empleyes. The water
became contaminated through the sewer in
which all the refuse from the closets passes.
This sew or made of terracetta runs directly
from the factory and passes ever this well.
In addition the sovver from the fucteiy Is
in the same ditch with the pipes that
supplies the water for drinking pin poses,
and here no examination has been made te
ascertain it there Is u loakuge from the
sewer. An o.auilnatien made might show
a serious break in the sewer.
Even If there is no break here the
water weuKl be contaminated by leakage
from the terra cotta sewer plpe at the well,
for"thcre is no tetra cotta pipe made,"
said mi expert plumber, "that will net
leak in the ceutsy or time." Tills roiiise,
in his judgment, eventually get Inte the
water of the well mid was reeonveyed Im
pregnated with disease. This water the
empleyes drank, aud the natural result
wan Illness and death.

The Street Committee's Conference
With Mr. Btelnmetc About the
Grant direct Extension,
The street eotnmlttce of councils met J.
L. Steintnetz, esq., en Tuesday afternoon
te confer with hlni lit rcforence te the com
pletion of the opening of Urant street, from
Christian te North Queen. Nothing de
finite was agreed upon aud Indications
point te dinicultles that wilt finally be de
termined In the courts.
The order of court te the street commis
sioner directs him te open that street of a
width of nineteen feet. The Detnuth build
ings were tern down, and en the rear end,
the street Is of the full width of nluetoen
feet. The difficulty begins at the main
buildings of Mr. SlclnnieU. The nlno nlne
Inch wall of the Demuth building Is
against the Stelnraetz building. In order
te get the full nineteen feet, it Is necessary
te take down this nlue-Inch wall. If the
wall is taken down, the wall of the Stoln Steln Stoln
metz building Is weakotied se much that 11
may full, and In ronsequeneo he would
suffer heavy datuage.
There will be great danger te werkmen
In taking the wall down, and that fact will
be oue of the considerations that the com cem com
mlttce will weigh when they meet te dis
cuss the inatter. The committee appear te
be divided at present en their vlews. Heme
favor the taklngjilewn of the wall regard regard
less of consequences ; ethers favor the
adoption of Mr. Steinmetz's views, toglve
him nlne Inches of ground the leugtb of his
main building en which te build a wall,
and still ethers think it would be a geed
ldeu te have the street vacated, soil the
ground, and the city stand the less If any.
Mr. Stoluinetz agrees, If the committee
give him nlne Inches, the width of the
Demuth wall, te build at his own oxpenso,
a prossed brick wall the en tire length of
his main building. This, seme of the
members think, cannot be dene, bucause
these nlne Inches of ground cost the city
about 91,009.
Mr. .Steintnetz served nottce en the mom mem
bers of the cointnltteo that If they removed
the Demuth wall It did se at the city's
risk, and he would held the city responsi
ble for all the damage he Bustained. It is
admitted by the committee that the Stein
metz building will be damaged badly, If it
dees net fall down, IT the Demuth wall Is
Street Commissioner Smeltz says he cau
get moil te remove the wall if the commit
tee directs him te de se. While It will be
dangereus he thinks if the Steiuinctz
building Is securely preppod by heavy tim
bers the wall can be taken down. After
the Demuth wall Is removed then Mr.
Steinmetz's wall will have te be made o e
cure en the inside from his own grounds.
That will entail considerable moreexpuuso
than If built as he proposes te the city, be
cause It will necessitate n re-plastering of
thoentlro south side of his building and

work is going
The committee will meet en next Tues

A Little Philosophy en a Subject ofUnl efUnl
vursnl Interest.
Frem the New Yerk Bun,
Almest every ene tries te be economical
at ene tlme or another, but thers are very
few people who econemizo wisely. Cloth
ing is ene of the easiest things te be fool
ishly economical about. Tills is particu
larly truu about shoes. Shoes are essential
te comfort, though perlmps net te happi
ness. A man who has tight shoes en, or
whose shoes wabble around en his feet,
cannot be really comfortable, ncither can
he be comfertablo If his shoes are crooked
or twisted, or de net leek well. If he has
te wear the same pair of shoes overy day,
they wear at Iho same places en his feel
and detract rrem his comfort. It Is also
bad business policy.
Shoes cost Irem $1.25 up te Sit a iwlr.
Fourteen dollars Is as much as any pair of
ordinary walking shoes cost In New Yerk
city. Seceiid-hiiud shoes can be bought os
low as 25 cents a pair. There Is a wlde
margin between tliose extremes. A man
who wants le be economical usually buys
neither ene kind or shoes nor the ether.
He dees net buy $14 shoes because they
ceit tee much ; he dees net buy second
hand shoes because he dees net llke the
Idea or having second-hand things.
Usually he gets an Imitation el' tlie
best grade of shoes. This Is tbe most costly
thing he cau de. A real $1 1 shoe will out eut out
wartvve$7 imitations of II. It will net
outwear tvve$f pads of shoes that are $7
ialrs of shoes nud de net pretend le be any
thing else. Hut that Is net se much what
the economical mail buys, instead of going
te the choaiier shoe stores ami getting thelr
host shoes he gees lu ene of the costly shoe
stores and gets their cheiiiiest shoes. This
Is oue of the economies which a man thinks
saves him $10 or $15 a year and which docs
Tlie way (e clethe one's feel cheaply Is
te buy several pairs of shoes et a tlme and
never te wear any of them out. Shoes
worn twlce a week will last for years,
while a pair of shoes worn overy dav will
net last mom than a few months. When
a man wears the same pair of shoes overy
day, the strain comes en the same places
In the shoe and tlie same parts of his
feet; the shoes get damp, nud the tension
is net relaxed except at night. When a
man steps In it mud puddle or gets his
shoes rained ou ene day, the leather hy Iho
next day Is net in it condition te be worn,
while if the shoes wero put away nud let
stand for a fuwdnys, they should be all
right again, and might even be better for
having been wet. Then the style dees net
change In shoes as in hats nud clothes, se
thore is no troubleln pionervlng thein In
dellnttely. Twe pairs of patent leather low
shoes will de ler summer wear for flve
years If preperly treated. Thiee pairs of
walking shoes will last for two years with
out heeding half soling. They will always
leek well, only all thn shoes must he
bought at unce and kept for seme tlme
before belng worn. This is u little point In
economy whluh will save any reader of
this paper mera than it cost.
Blcotrfe Light lu Hallway Trains.
Frem tlie New Yerk Blcctrleal World.
In thu United States at least the system
of lighting fiem storage batteries, charged
at each end of the run, dees net appear te
Increase In popularity. The Bosten fc
Albany railroad, after two and a half years
trial, recently abandoned electricity ou the
two trains that were nit lighted botween
New Yerk and Bosten, and substituted the
Pintsch gns syfAmu. It Is stated that the
principal cause of this at Uuu was the
cutting down of the overhoad wires lu
New Yerk, prevciitlng them from charging
the stoiage batteries at that end of the line,
as the cars wero net equipped with oil
lamps which could be used during that
time, but It Is also clalined that considerable
treti bio was experienced fiem the lamps
frequently breaking and that (he oxpenso
of maintenance was loe great.
The Pennsylvania company, howevor,
still continues te light Its puiler cars from
the storage batteries, using a low voltnge
The Intercolenial Hallway of Canada has
adopted the accumulator system alone ou
the trains betvvoeu Halifax and Quebec,
and new have mero than forty cars fitted
up with olectrle lamps, which are of slxtoeit
eandte power, und vary Hern olevon te
tvv euty-tvve te it car. Thu iicciunulateis ure
chaiged ut four different points ou the line,
running about 500 miles with the one
charge, ami the results thus far obtained
are very sallMfacteiy, but te provide for
emergencies oil lamps have been retained
In each cur.
The combination of dynamo and storage
hnttery first adopted by the Pullman com
pany Is gradually being oxtendod in this
country, and Is giving gicat satisfaction lu
the Hast nud West, but, It appears, at n
large expense for maintenance. Tlie Chesa
peake and Ohie vestibule train, " Fast Fly
ing Virginian," running between New
Yerk tls Cincinnati with six cars, Is sup
plied! with 118 lamps, divided up thus:
Twe Pullmans, 30 lamps each ; dining car,
20; day coach, 10; combination car, 13,
and the baggace car. 2, Up te May 1, Ib'JO,
the average cost per lamp, for mainte
nance and renewals was $1.10 per mouth.
Yet where the exhaust steam Is utilized
for heating the tialu the cost can be materi
ally decieasi.'d.
With this object iu view the Chicago,
Milwaukee it St. Paul railway has recently
added te Its equipment two Independent
light and heat tenders, which carry thelr
own boilers for steam heating aud for run
ning a Westlnghotise automatic, engine, at
tached le a Ne. 1 Ldlsun couieiiim wound
dynamo, supplying the current illrett for
lighting all the cars In thu train, thiisdelng
away with the dynamo ou the baggage car
and storage battery combination.
The results huve been very ravorable,
and during inoie than six mouths or con
stant service thore has net been u slugle
failure. This company has four trains,
covering about forty-llve cirs, lighted by
electricity, ami expects te adept this system

It Is confidently believed that the cost or

Mr. Houghten, thu telegraph superin

The ex pi ess trains are wired fur an aver aver

from 8 te 10, acceiding te the speed of train.
