CLEANER STREETS Business Men Urge Long= Felt Wants THE COUNCIL IS POWERLESS CONTRACTS MUST RUN THEIR COURSE Health Officer Recommends Extensive Sewer Construction—Much Rou tine Business Transacted All the members of the council were present yesterday when President Silver took the chair. The session was short and except for the presence of three representatives each from the board of trade, the cham ber of commerce and the Merchants and Manufacturers' association little matter of moment occurred. Before the council was called to order Deputy Clerk Haskir.s announced that the members would' act as a board of equalization, their duties to commence this morning, and that the selection of one of their number as chairman was pertinent at that time. Upon motion of Councilman Nickell. Mr. Silver was elected to fill the position, and the board thereupon adjourned to meet this morning at 10 oclock. President Silver called the council to gether immediately after tendering the board his thanks for the additional hon or thus conferred. The report of Health Officer Dr. L. M. Powers was received and approved. The usual routine reports were pre-' sented and referred. The park commissioners recommend that a music fund in the sum of $2000 be created and placed In the hands of thc park board for future use, and also that a fund to the amount of $2500 for the im provement of Sunset park be appropri ated. Park Commissioner McLain was granted leave of absence from the city for thirty days. FOR BETTER STREETS Judge J. W. McKinley, on behalf of the committee from the board of trad?, chamber of commerce and Merchants and Manufacturers' association, was given permission, to address the council on the subject of better systems for sprinkling the streets and lighting the city. Judge McKinley expressed the belief briefly that in view of the fact that a large number of extremely critical peo ple annually visited the city from the east, where the work of which he spoke, was reduced to a fine art, and cleanli ness was the great desideratum, the citizens whose organizations he had the honor to represent had become alive to the fact that Los Angeles needed both and needed them badly. The committee presented the follow ing suggestions: The specifications for sweeping the paved streets should provide that each street shall be sprayed or sprinkled be fore sweeping, but under no circum stances should more water be used in spraying or sprinkling than Is required to prevent the dust from rising while the sweeping is being done. When too much water is used it makes the street muddy and the brooms or machines will not sweep up the mud. Also that all paved streets in the business portion of the) city, say, between Alameda street on the east and Hil! street on the west, and between the Plaza on the north and Seventh street on the south, be swept by hand, a man with a small hand cart for receiving the sweepings, taking up the droppings and other debris, keeping the street clean at all times. The street sweeping, as well as sprink ling, should be under the supervision of the street superintendent. "The specifications for sprinkling the graveled streets should require the dust to be kept thoroughly well laid, so well that at no time would a carriage driven over any street be enveloped in a cloud of dust, as is often the case now. They should also provide against flooding the streets, as is often done now. The contractors should be required to so regulate the flow of the water from the sprinkling carts that the streets would not at any time be made muddy, as is the case now. The sprinkling carts should be made to go over the streets in warm weather thre-e times each day." In the matter of lighting the city, the committee suggested a more definite nite and consistent means of measuring current, as some re-Ilable method of metering as is used for gas or ac is used for electric power. Such metering should be continuous and not an occasional ap plication by a night or a week or a month to determine a mean average. President Silver stated that citizens were always welcome, and whenever the taxpayers have any suggestions to make concerning the health or happines sof the people the council would gladly take cognizance of all such. Juet now It was ■impracticable to do anything, for the rea son that' all the contracts had two years to run. President Silver expressed the belief that there was no law by which the council could order any resurfacing done and no remedy was at all feasible except to work all parts over.

Bowker et al., asking that the cement zan ja and walk on the south side of Adams street between Orchard and Vermont avenues be allowed to remain as at present until such time as use of the zanja shall be discontinued, beg leave to recommend asfollows: : That the request be granted. That , present proceeding under the ordinance . be abandoned and said ordinance re- '. pealed, and that the city engineer be in- ', structed to present a new ordinance for j cement curb ar.d sidewalk on Adams " street from- Hoover to Congress streets, exempting therefrom the south side of , said Adams street from Orchard to Ver- j mont avenues. Afternoon Session The council met at 2 o'clock, with President Silver In the chair and a quor um present. In the matter of the petition of O. La Grange, wherein we were instructed to prepare a lease for two years of the land dscribed in said petition, I would report that the city clerk informs me that the city does not own said land and has no interest therein. Adopted. In the matter of the opening of the al ley from Fifth to Sixth street between Spring and Main streets, Mrs. Edwards has brought suit to determine the title to a strip of land at the northerly end of the proposed alley. This suit is now pending and for the purpose of enabling the city to open the alley immediately we have prepared an agreement which has been signed by Mrs. Edwards and her husband and which we return here with with the recommendation that the council authorize the city by its mayor and clerk to execute. So ordered.

The city tax and license collector pre sented a report of delinquent taxes, etc., which was referred to the finance com mittee. THE OUTFALL SEWER The city engineer presented the fol lowing report on the outfall sewer, which was referred to the sewer commitee: Having, in conformity with your re quest, examined the condition of the brickwork, mortar and plaster of the long tunnel, of several portions of the forty-inch circular conduit, and of sev eral chambers of the outfall sewer, I beg to hand you herewith the results of this investigation in the following report, embodying also my recommendations as regards the immediate steps neces sary to be taken to arrest—probably— the deterioration of the brickwork al ready begun, and prevent the threatened ultimate destruction of this work. The investigation was carried out on the 13th and 15th inst. On the former date a cursory inspection was had in the presence of Mr. Toll of your honora ble body, while on the later the examina tion was more detailed and included structures and portions of these-wer not reached on the former date. Itlsan undeniable fact that the sewage which has during the last tew months passed through the out Call sewer has de veloped a gas or gases which corrode both the cement and the iron in a marked degree. All iron parts in the air above the now are deeply corroded. A crumb ling mass from one-sixteenth to one eighth on an inch thick constitutes the outer part of cast and wrought iron details of gates, valves and steps. The mortar is affected by a swelling and softening of the cement. This takes place in the highest degree on the ver tical walls a few inches above the sur face of the How; this action is somewhat diminished on the upper portions of ver tical walls and is very pronounced again under the crown of all arches. As just stated, the cement is disintegrated by softening and swelling, forming in many places a loose, powdery, somewhat plas tic mase. In the worst cases of disinte gration the plaster hangs, on the walls in a thick, semi-fluid mass. On the other hand, the invert, wherever tested, in tun nel, circular conduit or chamber, is hard and in apparently as good condition as on the first day. But in some stretches of the tunnel the plastering of the invert is gone, while the concrete of the invert itself seems unaffected. This may, how ever, be only apparent, because what ever portion of the concrete is softened Ls probably soon abraded and swept away. But, in a general way, the invert is everywhere in apparently good condi tion and free from holes or material ir regularities. But even the bricks of walls and arches are here and there af fected; a thin spawl easily detaches it self in places from the main body of a brick. This spawl has generally a slight ly different, darker color than the rest of the brick. In only one case of the many tested did the mortar between the bricks appear affected and softened. Every where else the destruction appears on the surface as yet. What the nature of the ga9 or gases is, which cause this destruction, I am un able to state, this office being unprovid ed with even the most rudi mentary chemical testing appar atus. But the presence of sul phuretted hydrogen In large—un usually large— quantities ls a certainty. A silver watch carried in the pocket for a few hours, while this investigation was going on, came out in a much tar nished and blackened condition. This is a decisive test, even if the Impression on the nostrils of the observer might be deceptive. Carbonic acid gas al«> seems present in large quantities, as indicated by the vagaries of the flame in the lan tern carried by the observer, when tha lantern was approached nearer than a certain distance to the Invert. The knife carried by the observer for tha purpose of probing the hardness of mor tar, brick and concrete was much cor roded. A week's work In the acid-laden atmosphere of a chemical laboratory would hardly have left It In a worse con dition. But because these gases are present apparently in large quantities, it is not safe to conclude that they are the real corroding agent. They might very well be only the products of the decomposi tion and' Decomposition produced by the action of other substances on each other and on the cement and iron. It le not Impossible of belief that substances might get Into the sewage of this city from different sources which should, In strictness, not be admitted, into' a sewer. It Is conceivable that as long as such substances remain under the normal conditions of a sewer they may do little harm and leave small traces of their presence. But when they get under the abnormal conditions of the outfall sew er chemical reactions may set in, which in themselves are destructive or pro duce other substances (solid gases, etc.), which are the agents of decomposition. Und«r the abnormal conditions of the sewage in the outfall sewer I un.dei stand the long time during which thr sewage remains there, when retained for irrigation, the pressure under which it then is, the concentrated state of it, generally and particularly of that por tion which does not'rise in the hydrants, and last, but not least, the total absence of ventilation of the sewer, which causes all gases to be bottled up, as it were, and to be under higher pressure and greater concentration than the gases in an or dinary ventilated sewer, hence chemi cally more active. The particularly pro nounced destruction, of iron, plaster and mortar in the two drop chambers—one on section 5, the other on section9—ap pears to sustain this view of the matte.. The fall and consequent churning of the whole mass of solids and fluids in creases the energy of the chemical re actions which produce the destructive agents, which then, while in "statu na scenti," break up the constituent parts of the cement and oxidize th* iron more rapidly than they otherwise would. To follow out this train cf reasoning would be the subject of a special chemi cal Investigation, producing analysis of the sewage, the liberated gases, the de composed cement, etc. The immediate practical necessity, however, is a means to stay further ravages, which would unavoidably end, sooner or later, in a disaster to this costly crown of the san itary works of the city of Los Angeles. While I cannot absolutely know that the following out of the following measures will certainly arrest thefurther destruc tion of plaster, mortar and iron, yet dur ing a former period, while conditions similar to those to be recommended have prevailed, no trace of this decomposing and oxidizing has ever been observed. Mr. Derby, superintendent of the outfall sewer, Indeed asserts that only a few months ago he showed a visiting engi neer over the works of the outfall sewer; the visitor, among other places, descend ed into, and with special care and inter est examined the drop-chamber on sec tion 9; that neither of them then no ticed the slightest indication of anything unusual in the plastering; and that most decisive of ail —no trace of white discoloration was on the visitor's cloth ing when he came up from the depths of the chamber. But at present it is sim ply impossible to enter this chamber without dislodging some of the decom posed plaster and having one's clothing stained by it. My recommendations are: 1. That the sewage be again diluted —as was formerly the case—toy an ad mixture of about an equal quantity of zanja water. 2. That the unheard-of bottling up of the noxious gases by air-tight closing of structures be done away with by in stituting good ventilation at all of these structures —not only as good a ventlla- tion- as the formerly used perforated man-hole covers produced, but a better ventilation, by ventilating-pipes of not less than twelve inches diameter, reach ing sixteen feet above the surface of the ground. Formerly, before the beginning of the destruction of plaster, mortar and iron, a moderately bad ventilation might have been good enough. But, now that actual destruction has set in at an un mistakably rapid pace, the best ventila tion obtainable is none too good. The uutfall sewer as designed and built by me never contemplated the air tight closing of the manholes, and with holding of the necessary water for Hush ing it, but on the contrary sufficient ven tilation was provided for and the zanja system connected with it at several points, so that the sewer was constantly ventilated and could be Ilus>hed as often as required. The testimony of the pres ent and former superintendents amply shows, that while this arrangement of constant Hushing and ventilation, even if but moderate, was adhered to, every thing went well and no deterioration of any kind took place. On the contrary, no sooner were my dispositions and'ar rangements disregarded and "improved upon" than a sudden and rapid destruc tion of the surfaces more immediately accessible to the deleterious influences of chemical action takes place. Councilman Toll, as chairman of the sewer committee, asked that the water be turned Into the sewer for Hushing purposes, in order to retard the deterio ration of the sewer. Councilman Ashman thought that the zanjero's department should be given the credit for the water used in the flushing of the sewer, and that the water should be charged to the outfall sewer fund. Finally, on motion, the zanjero was instructed to turn into the outfall sewer two heads of water, the same to be charged to the outfall sewer fund. THE ZANJA COMMITTEE The zanja committee presented the following report, which was adopted: Your zanja committee beg leave to report as follows: In the matter of the. report cf the water overseer in reference to the zanja on Central .avenue, in which he recommends that the zanja be aban doned between the railroad track and Thirtieth street and East Jefferson street on Central avenue, and that the water be carried from ditch No. 3 on East Jef ferson ©treet to the alley west of Central avenue and south through the alley to Its termination, a part of said zanja being at present in the said alley, in order to do which it will be necessary to get a right of way through one or two pieces of property through which the alley does not run; after investigating, your committee recommend that the water overseer be directed to abandon the zanja on this street and procure right of way so as to continue the zanja through-4he alley, as recommended, and the city engineer be directed to assist the water overseer by making the ne cessary survey for this change. Report adopted. Royal makes tbe food pure, wholesome and delicious. POWOCR Absolutely Puro ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., NEW YORK.
