It Is about time that the public should
be enlightened on sanitary matters, as
It seems the whole sanitation ofthe illy
Is In such a muddle that even our
worthy Mayor and Council don't know
what they are doing. First, ordinances
are passed; the public go to the expense
ol acting accordingly, then alter a Inpse
of yenrs these very ordinances aro at
tempted to he repealed. Sanitary laws
are strictly enforced, thereby compel
ling parties, even ladles, to be pulled
before the august presence of the He
corder at the "bat cave," where the
general melee are drunks and soiled
doves. Furthermore, the sanitary In
spectors tinder the present city admin
istration compel people to have their
yards and outhouses cleaned where It Is
ijulte unnecessary, only for the purpose
of making money for tlielr own pocket,
besides salaries paid to them by the city.
No reports are made at headquarters or
to the Hoard of Health, but at a certain
olllee on Houston street, It seems as If
progress Is not Inscribed on the banners
of the new city administration else they
would not endorse the old system called
bucket or hoe hoys. The San Antonio
Sanitary and Fertilizing company hss
been put to great expense to obtain the
odorless excavating pump, successfully
used In lioiton, Philadelphia and llaltl
more, notwithstanding the Council goes
hack to the old system, and even sanc
tions It. F.verydayparlles are complain
ing of the fearful stench created by the
latter process; worthless disinfectants
aro used to no good whatever. The
proceedings against the San Antonio
Sanitary and Fertilizing company aro too
ireau in me memories oi me puuue mat
they deserve some comment.
