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.

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

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 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.
