FINDS THEM UNFIT
TO HARBOR PEOPLE
Numerous deaths in the south end
of the city the past few weeks, mostly
among Mexicans, has caused the health
department to begin an Investigation
of the district, and, from the report
presented by health officer Anderson to
the council Thursday morning, such an
unsanitary condition exists that the
J council will shortly take some remedial
"The health -department commenced
its investigations the first of the
month," said Dr. Anderson. VWe have
gone over a portioti of the houses and
the figures speak for themselves as to
what was found. It is our Intention
when we get through, to make some
' recommendations to the council."
In the Jower end of town, the por
tion being investigated, there have
been on an average of 20 deaths a
week for several weeks, with an in
crease, if anything, as time wore on. A
number of Infants died, but the mnjor
itj were grown people. In the week
ending Thursday, July 7, there were
just a score of Mexican deaths, all in
the portion of town south of the busi
ness center. One negro also died in
The number of deaths led the health
department to determine to ascertain
the cause of this mortuary list every
week, so much greater than the per
centage of births. As a result of the
special inspection, it was foumi that
there are just 72 dwellings that are
inhabitable today out of a total of 205

to have proper ventilation, etc. Just
133 were declared uninhabitable by
reason of not having sufficient doors,
windows and other means of admit
ting air to the interior, and being stuffj
and ill-smelling. Some of them, also,
had entrances tis though one was going
into a cellar to get to the living rooms.

Thirty homes were found to be clean

in an unsanitarv condition, some of

as a consequence. In all this district,
but fifteen places have sewer connec
