OUR CELEBRATED GARBAGE
Here are some plain statements
made to the council committee on
health on the interesting subject of
garbage:
Mary McDowell: "You have had a
report that the present reduction
plant is a good one. I visited it yes
terday and I saw millions upon mil
lions of flies swarming on garbage
lying exposed and rotting in the sun
and sending its foul stench through
the neighborhood to poison little
babies."
Alderman Merriam: "We have
found some power, behind the throne
that has blocked every move that
might take the contract away from
the Chicago Reduction Company.
Step by step we have been crowded
back. The city administration, the
law department and the department
of public works have .in turn blocked
every effort to get action. That delay
was marked from, the day that Rep
resentative Sabath appeared as
counsel for the phicago Reduction
Company."
C. J. Brown, former head electri
cian of the company, said garbage
was allowed to .stand exposed from
24 to 60 hours when it could be clean
ed up in 24 hours. Also said the rev
enue of the reduction company was
$2,400 a day for by-products, such
as grease, fertilizer, etc., aside from
the 47,500 a year paid by the city.
Frank Burney, former time-keeper
for the reduction company, said 300
to 400 barrels of condemned catsjip
was dumped into Bubbly Creek and
that condemned calves, hogs and
other animal matter are allowed to
stand for days until there is enough
to fill a tank.
