CbnrcL Sunday' ervices at this church were largely attended, both morninjf and evening. Hie Sunday school, held at 9 in the morning, is growing in interest and number each Sabbath, and much good 5a being done. The young people held their first prayer meeting in the vestry mom of the church last Wednesday evening. The attendance was unusually lanre. and how at the cutset the interest taken and that the services are desired by large numbers. These meetings had been disturbed on account of the removal of the old church and building of the new, nd their renewal has been instituted tinder very favorable auspices. The regular prayer meeting is held in the vestry room at 6:13 p. m. Sunday, con cluding just before the evening service. The Young People's Christian and Social Union will reorganize on nest Tuesday night in the vestry, and elect ofllcera. The social held lat Friday night was a great success in point of numbers, and as one present expressed it, van the most social social he had ever attended. Under their new organization, meetings will be Mranged for playing lawn ten nis, croquet and other games. The next social will be held to-night in the vestry ami the public is cordially in vited. This week the foot rests will be finished nd placed in the pews. The chancel is to be moved forward in order to give moreroomf or the choir and handsome reading desk is being. uade to be placed in front, from which, in some of the services the pnstor, Rev. C. C McLean, will deliver his addresses. The choir is rmwt excellent and is led by A. Otn'ar Brown, whose talent as a ' musician and composer is well known. The Sunday school children occupying the gallery, sing the closing selection in the service. The Scnday school ami Bible class room as also the auditorium, is receiving the last touches rf the finishers. The church grounds are being taste fully laid out and lawn grass, rose bushes and shrubbery will be planted, making everything wear a look of har mony. . The parsonage ami church have been fully described in former articles. The name of the church could not hare been more happily choeen a everything in terior and exterior is suggestive of grace.

A hotel restaurant- is being built on the beaclar the light house, also a pavilion for dancing and amusement. The South Beach Railroad carried 850 passengers to the beach Sunday. They had to make three extra trips to ac commodate them. The beautiful yacht Ladoga, owned by Mr. J. L. Hutchingson, arrived in port Sunday about noon, and is anchored onT San Marco wharf. The yacht Dream, which it will be re membered wai badly stove up on the bar a few months ago, is once more afloat in a new rig throughout. The San Marco is rapidly filling np and the proprietor states their patron age is fifty per cent, better this season than any former year at this time. Sergeant Brown, in charge of the Old Fort, reports 503 visitors Sunday. Every State and Territory of the United States and nearly every country of the world was represented. The Eastern congregation of the Board of Missions of this diocese, which in cludes Jacksonville and the East Coast, will meet in this city and be in session Tuesday.

The following article from the Engin eering ami BuiUlinp Record and San- ititrij Engineer of November 26, 1S87, and the report it refers to, present a striking illustration of the danger of making an almost irretrievable ami cer tainly costly error in the selection of a system of a sewerage. We commend it to the careful reading of our City Council and citizens in general. Engineers and municipal authorities will be interested in the report of Mr. Rudolph Herintr. made to the Enmneer ina and Bnilding Record and published on another page, of an inspection made by him of the jHempnis sewerage sys tem, on the occasion of a recent visit to that city. requerel Air. tiering to report envcially upon the question of Stoppac in pipe-sewers and the exper ience resulting from the attempt to dis pense with manholes. The older read ers of this journal will recall the contro versy carried on its column uunng ine years lt0 and 18l regarding the impor tance of irovidinir any sewerage system with manholes. This was started by a review we published of alternate plans proposed for the city of Newport, li. I., in onr issue of December 1, lb0. In that review we recommended certain features of the rlan recommended by Colonel Wnrinir. but arnotur the objections we made to it was one condemning the pro position toomit manholes. In discuss ing this plan and alluding to the separ ate system, by which we meant the sys tem as then understood by engineers, we stated that for certain localities it had many advocate, mentioning smocig others, S It Robert 1 - Trai 4srnment Board ; rmi Rritain. laia called oat tet- w air BnhMt Rawlinsoo. which nnkittthwl In our issue of March 15, 1862. he suDDOsinir we intended to im ply that to endorsed what was called the Warn. nSMi. which- Of COOTS, t- Wari3 system, which. ctadai tae crxar a WMOLXfALX CiOCEIlES.

I In this letter Mr. Rawlinsoo stated: I "I have written quite enough on sew I ering and draining to refute the statement that 1 approve the mode adoDted by Colonel aring all around. and any person may learn this by look ing at mr published "huggeettons lor Main Sewering7 (revised to 1$7$). "In these suggestions it will be seen that I insist upon right lines and true gradient, with manholes or lamp-holes at each change of line or gradient , spec ial arrangements for steep gradients. and abundant provision for sewer and drain flushing and ventilation. In so far Colonel Wanmr departs from these suggestions I entirely differ from him, and if he persists in disregarding these precautionary works against iauures without being either a wizard or a nronhet. I predict failure; because the sewers when closed in will be beyond in spection without breaking down to them, and this operation must be blind hap hazard work. I know quite well that to work under the rules may cost more money in the outset, but will tend to great saving in the long run. This was replied to Dy colonel w ar ing April 1, in which be defined the eeentials and non-essentials of a sewer system as - follows; il-sentials "Exclusion ol ail storm water, alieolute cleanliness, perfect pre cision of gradient, regular, automatic, efficient flushing, complete ventilation, and perfect construction." Non-Essentials "Lateral alignment; ami facility of inspection." On April 15, 1N1, appeared a commu nication from Edward S. Philbrick, C. E., of Boston, in which be defended the use of manholes, and stated that 'In omitting them Colonel Waring launched out upon new and unbeaten natha. nursuinsr methods which had been discarded as bad ones by nearly all en gineers who had had much experience in the construction and maintenance ot city sewers during the past generation, both in this country and ui England." This discussion on the need of man holes was continued during a portion of the year 18fl, Messrs. Rawlinson, Phil- br ck. and O. K. Radford agreeing with the position taken by this journal in op position to that assumed and defended by Col. Waring. In our issue of March 20, 1884, we published a statement pre pared for us bv Mr. Anthony itoss, su perintendent of Sewers, giving cost of the Memphis system for the years 1M82 and 1S83. In 18J fifty oetructions were reportel, with a cost for removal of $057.1. In seventy-three obstruc tions, at a cost for removal of I7W2.7.1. These obstructions were all in the 6-inch laterals. Mr. Meriwether, the engineer at that time, also stated, in reply to a question from Mr. William Ham Hall, Engineer of the State of California. 'The omission of manholes caused con siderable embarrassment, mainly for want of proper observation and as a means of cleaning out, etc. Mr. Meriwether also. reported that up tc that time forty-four manholes had een put in by the city, "none by War- insr." The experience as then reported in our columns at length and the present report of Mr. U ering of that acquired since that time should convince any one of the mis take of trying to reduce the first cost of a sewer-system by omitting this very es sential feature. We anticipate that a verv considerable amount of work will be done during the next five years in the building of pipe-sewer systems, and we present this information feeling assured that it will serve a good purpose, if it en ables an engineer to convince commit tees of laymen who have the matter un der consideration that an attempt to save the coat of putting in a proper number of manholes is unwise economy. REPORT. ' To the Editor of the Engineering; ami Building' Keeurd: Sir The 'following is written in re sponse to your request to report the con clusions arrived at irom a recent inspec tion of the Jlemphis sewerage system hue attending the me-img ot ine American Public Health Association, held in that city November 8-11. It is now over six years since the sew erage of Memphis, as designed and built by Colonel ileorge E. Waring. Jr., was completed. The deviations that were then made from ine principes wi,icn uai previously been elsewhere adopted in other words, the "novelties" which en- tit led the system to be called aring system." in distinction from other have had an ample opportunity to re ceive a thorough test. In view of the notoriety that had been given to it in this and foreign countries, and of the criticisms made by American and Eng lish engineers, and in your columns at the time, it was particularly interesting o see how far the praise and blame were merited, and what real advances the science of sewerage engineering had made. Th works since their completion have been in charge of Mr. Nile Meriwether, klngineer. and Mr. Anthony Koes, u wrintrnilent. Tliese srentlemen have endeavored to manaee and extend them as far as practicable in accordance with the instructions left by Colonel Waring, and both from the interest they have taken in securing: success for the work entrusted to them and from the results they achieved have proved themselves in every way competent lor ine tasa. tor the sake of clearness, ui me brietlv review the essential features of the "Waring" system in Memphis and point out those w hich were novel: Hrt Exclusion of all rain water from the sewers. While both in Europe and America the silt-bearing street water had been excluded from sewers wherever the etrate system was adopted, yet no other city had made the attempt to strictly exclude also the com paratively clean roof and yard water. Second Soil-drainage by an inde pendent system of pipe leading to sepa rate outfalls. This feature was not a novel one. Taird Ventilation of the street-sewers throngh the house-drains and soil pipe. This practice is in nae in a num ber of European cities. , Fori Automatic flush-tanks at the bead of alUhe lateral sewers. Although soch tanks had before been advocated and used elsewhere, yet nowhere was it done to the same extent as in Memphis. rxfth-So man hots) ott the laterals. i TUs feature was entirely novel. tUIDwME. CtOCaEaY. ETC CARtk. C, J. TEODEB. j SLrt h Limitation of house-drair to a diameter of four inches. While this re striction had never before been advo cated for a whole city, numerous iso lated instances existed. Seventh Lateral sewers were to be 6i x inches in diameter until the maxi mum flow of sewerage tilled them half full. This was likewise a new feature when applied to street sewers. The "novrlties" introduced by Colonel Waring, therefore, were: Strict exclusion of all rain-water; use of automatic flush-tanks of every lateral; practical abolishment of manholes; house-drains limited to a diameter of four inches: and la tend sewers limited mainly to six iuches. I shall examine them in this order: Firtt While in theory it may be pos sible to prevent persons from discharging the rain-water from their' premises into the sewer, yet in practice it seems impossible. Although strict measures were applied, yet the Memphis sewers began to be so overcharged during rains by surreptitious connections tliat overflow-pipes bad to be laid to the bayou or ditch running through the city, and last year a new 24-inch intercepting sewer, discharging directly into the Miss issippi, had to be built across the city to finally relieve the nuisance caused by the storm-water overflows into the com paratively dry bayou. As there is no reason whatever in Memphis why the rain-water from houses should not go into the sewers to flush them and to re lieve the property, this restriction cannot be called a good one. Second The nse of automatic flush tanks at the head of all the laterals does not seem to have been fully justified ia Memphis. The ground is generally sloping and at many points quite steep, and the sewers would in some cases seem to be able to keep fairly clean with out daily fl tithing. The engineer told me this was actually the fact in several instances of new laterals where no tanks had been put in. This allows that a dis crimination is advisable for economical construction and maintenance. The bet use for automatic flush-tanks is on flat grades, where they are sometimes almost indispensable. Tlieymust be con sidered rather a luxury on steep grades. Third The abolishment of manholes on laterals, while strenuousiy advocated by Colonel Waring, but disapproved of generally, must be set down as a failure. The frequent stoppages in the laterals, at the rate of about three per week, and the consequent tearing up of the sewer, would have been avoided had there been proper means of access. Where repeated stoppages occurred manholes have been inserted, and there are now about seventy on the Lateral sewers, where at first there were none. In planning for tiie exten sion of the system in the northern part of the city, Mr. Meriwether lias con cluded to place a iiia&hole at every street intersection. . Eomrtt. The limitation of 4-incb di ameter for house-pipes likewise cannot be called a success. O ving to the en trance of rubbish, which seems un pre ventable in other cities as well as in Memphis, stoppages are frequent, amounting, accordingto Mr. Ross, to several every week. The difference be sreen the size of the sewer-pipe and of the largest opening into it must be greater than a 4-incb pipe permits when earthen pipe is used. Experience has amply proven that a diameter of six inches is the only safe minimum for the main house-drain under such conditions. When a 4-inch pipe is relied on it needs a great fall, abundant flushing, and specially well-jointed pipes. Fifth The use of 6-inch pipe for street sewers has also shown itself to be an im- iroper restriction. A report of Mr. Niles leriwether says: "In future nothing less than 8-inch pine w ill be used in the branch or lateral i:nes, as all the ob structions which have occurred in the branches in the post have been in the six and none in the eight inch.' The sample experience was already had year ago in England, where pipe-eewers were for the first time extensively used; and in America we have since had abundant confirmation. With 6-inch house pipes the 8-inch street pipes have given no trouMe. " Every on a of the deviation made by Colonel Waring from the principles pre viously adopted, and strenuously de ft nded by him. have therefore proved to be either of minor importance or wholly objectionable. An additional point, although not es sential to the system as a general one, must not be overlooked. The sewers are often complained of as being alto gether too shallow. The are generally from 4 to 6 feet deep and are unable to receive the drainage from cellars. Mr. Ross stated that they should be at least 12 feet deep to do what the people often demand. This depth ia the com mon one in many of our cities, and for a permanent system in a large city it should generally not be leas. In view of the great economy required at the time the Memphis sewers were built, it may be questioned whether the expense of twice the present depth would not have been too much of a tax on the people. An ultimate reconstruction of most of the lateral sewers, with greater depth and diameter, seems, however, inevit able In summing up, the conclusion seems unavoidable, regardirg the essential features of the " aring system, as out lined above, that what was new cannot be called good, and what is good cannot be called new. The success ul working of the Memphis system, and it ia generally giving satis faction to the public, is clearly not due to any new features, but to those prin ciples of sewer construction which have been known and practiced elsewhere for many years before, and greatly, also, to the careful and constant attention it re ceives at the hands of a competent force ox nve or six men. . Had not these works been so promi nently advocated by Colonel Waring and ms menus anroad as well as at borne. and had not the general public been led to believe that an mnrntnl progress bad been made in the art of sewer building.

At the tune when it was highly important to in trod ace i era in Mernptiit, and when the city was practically bankrupt, he suk grated the separate system as the only feasible on nnanciaiiy against ine contotntxt, which had previously been leoommended for the city. He aoggeated it when the sys tem naa been but tittle used in America and only on a niocb smaller scale than there required. This sagacity and cour age proved of great advantage to the ferer-strtcken city, and th good results wmcn rapidly followed the introduction of sewerage and other ranitarv improve ments should be and are fullv apprect- ieu. KCDOLPH HEJUXO, Council Meeting. The regular meeting of the City Council was held last night. President Ingraharn, Aldermen Oenovar, Llam bias, Sabin, Atwood, Lemis. and Pink- ham, and Clerk Moody were present. The rates were suspended and the ordi nances taken up. The ordinance in regard to the fire limit was read the third time and adopted. The ordinance amending an ordinance relating to the regulation of the city po lice, was referred to the Ordinance Committee for investigation. The regular business was taken up and the following new committees appointed: Finance Committee Aldermen Gibba, Genovar and Sabin. Streets and Lanes Aldermen Pink- ham, Oenovar and Lemis. Support and Relief of the Poor Alder men Atwood, Imis and Bruce. Taxes, Licenses and Leases Alder men Lemis, Pinkham and Llambias. Ordinances and Rules Sabin. Geno var and Llambias.

The committee appointed by the Board of Trade to solicit subscriptions to im prove the shell road came before the board and stated that $3,300 had been subscribed on the understanding that it was not available unless $3,000 was raised by February 1. They laid the matter before the board, and in view of the urgency of the matter it was re solved that $409 be appropriated to be used for the purpose stated. Mr. O. B. Smith, secretary of the com mittee, thauks the board for their liber ality. Several requests for permits to build were considered and referred to appro priate committees. Bills amounting to $630 were ordered paid. The request of the St- Augustine and South Beach Railroad to run over cer tain streets on An astasia Island was granted. A communication from the Mayor recommending a number of appoint ments as special police for duty in the Ponce de Leon Hotel and grounds was laid on the table until the next meeting. Alderman Atwood gave notice that he would introduce an ordinance at the next meeting opening Central avenue. Alderman Llambias suggested that as President Cleveland was to visit Jack sonville that be be invited to St. Augus tine. He was heartily seconded by Alderman Genovar. The hour being late, the matter was laid over and the motion to adjourn pre vailed. SPECIAL H0TICES.
