One of the most pronounced endorse
ments yet given to tne new sanitary
oidtnance of Pensacola was contained in
a report submitted to tne federal gov
ernment by one of its chief inspectors.
Dr. F. EX Harrington, the substance of
which was recited by Dr. Harrington
yesterday to a Journal representative.
Dr. Harrington Is an epidemiologist
for the TJ. S. public health service and
is assigned by the government to per
sonal supervision of public health and
sanitation in all ship yard communities
along the gulf coast. In his official
capacity, under orders from Washington,
he has Just completed a detailed exam
ination of sanitary conditions in Pensa
cola, and reported his nndlngs to the
government to the errect that the new
ordinance is practically ideal and is be
ing put Into successful operation as fast
as physical conditions will permit.
It has been a source of Intense satis
faction to the city commissioners and all
who have uspported tneir action that

Officer Harrington stated that his In

the problem of sewage disposal, and
that he had bent all his efforts to assist
Dr. Cox In that one thing. Whilef he
had found that the problem here had
progressed to a reasonably satisfactory
degree through ' the privy method, he had
also found that difrtcultles had been
encountered through misunderstanding
of details.
He stated, . however, that those who
had been undertaking to block progress
were not retarding the reform, but were

The doctor said that all citizens who
had come to the city hall to discuss the
matter, however hostile they may have

the actual .'facts. He summarized the
