0n various occasions, particularlyl
when the periodical breaks have oc
curred in the cable connecting the
wires of the \Vestern Union Tele
graph with wires on the main land
at Victoria, we have called attention l
to the advantages to be gained, and
less liability of breakage to the Vic
toris cahle if it could cross the straits
of Fuel. from Dungcness or Port
The cause of the frequent breaks
in the present line of cable, is now
well known to be the presence of
copper in the formation of thel
islands of the Archipelago do Hero,
and in the channels between these
islands, through which the cable is‘
laid. These breaks have been regu- l
hr at certain periods ever since the l
Victoria telegraph was constructed.
There is at present another break
in the cable, end we lake the_oppor
tunity of again referring to it, and
suggesting that it is for public inter
est, not only to connect Port Ange
los with Victoria, but to have at line
extended from Port Townsend to
Cspe Flattery. ,
Within the past two weeks three
wreclrs have occurred on the lower
wstsrs of the Straits, the last one
being the bark Gem of the Ocean,
st Pschins, near Cape Beale, on
Vancouver’s Islsnd. Capt. Hooper,
oi the Wolcott, says that if a line
had been established to the Cape, he
could have saved the Washington
Libby, end could have rendered val-i
usbie sssistsncs to the two vesselsl
on the Vsuoouver shore.
Hsving demonstrated that with
such tslegrsphio communication as
, is desired mthy msrine losses might
be svsrted, both smong Ameriosn
and English vessels, may we not as
sert thst it is to the interest of ship
mssters, owners and underwriters to

GENTLEMENi—Bolieving it to be
my duty as Health Officer, I have
the honor to report that I have this
day made careful inspection of
those localities of this city, in which
I had reason to believe disease germs
were liable to arise from noxious
odors Ind prevalent filth. The re
sult of said inspection, I have the
honor to herevuth present for your
Considerstion. _ _ _
The first place inspected was the
Wash House of Jee Web. The
house itself was reasonably clean,
but around the back door filth had
been allowed to accumulate to a
frightful extent; and, as if the ground
itself would not retain all the nois
ome substances, barrels of dirt and
nastiness were left standing at the
hack entrance, polluting and poison
ing the air. These barrels were or
dered thrown in the hay, and all the
filth of rotting clams and bones were
directed to be cleaned away at once.
The proprietor promised an imme
diats compliance with these direc
Examining next the house of Lun
Sen, the house and yard were found
in fair condition, save one wash room
where the sickening odors indicated
the near presence of some worse pu
trescenoe. This was ordered cleaned;
and, with the liberal application of
lime, will he made passably sweet
and healthy.
Sam Sing‘s Wash House was the
last examined. It was in every res
pect the worst of all in a sanitary
point of view. All the slope after
washing, were emptied under the
floor of the wash room 3nd by drains
conveyed into the street where every
passer by could not escape them;
and, as if that were not bad enough,
all the other filth of the place was
thrown out of the door to mingle
with that from under the house. To
walk on that side of the street by
the house was impossible without be
coming impregnated with some of
the nastiness, and I consider it dau
gerous to the health as well as dis
gusting to sight and polluting to the
person. I ordered all slope con
veyed to and confined in a hole in
the yard which after a certain time
can be, covered with dirt and a new
one dug; also directed the street to
be cleaned and some clean dirt to be
placed thereon.
' If China washhonses are to he al
lowed within the city limits. the
question of proper sewers and drains
is one that must command the early
attention of your body. It cannot
be neglected or slighted. The pub.
lic health is as important a care as
the public peace, and demands your
earnest consideration. The reputa
tion this place now justly enjoys for
health. can, in one season, be de
stroyed for years, if proper means are
not previded to carry off pollutions
that we permit in our midst.
The last place examined on which
I have to report, was a pig pen
( back of the Washington hotel )
which is directly on one of our main
streets and principal thoroughfares.
It should at once he moved to some
less prominent place. Where it now
stands no one can pass without in
haling its noxious odors.
A number of privies and other
places were examined, but they did
not seem to merit attention as public
nuisances. Some of them demand pri
vate remed however and the stag
gestion will" be privately offered to
their proprietors.
I have to thank the city marshal
for his kind attendance and assist
ance. At the expiration often days
I propose to make a second examin
ation of the places mentioned, and if
the sanitary improvements suggested
are not carried out I shall deem it
my duty to complain of them as pub
lic nuisances.
I am, gentlemen, very repeotfully
