What Mr, McCrary Will Do. The appointment of Mr. McCrary, of Keokuk.Iowa.as secretary of war is believed to be not a bad thing for western interests, and tho Union makes its points thusly: ' 1 he war department ha much power for good or evil over certain interests that centre hero bat are of national Importance All estimates for future expenditures have to receive his sanctlou and be recommended by him to congress as the baxls of appropriations. Secretary Belknap mani fested very little Interest In Rock Island arsenal IJen. Benet evinced a disposition to pro crastinate work at this arsenal in order to begin an arsenal somewhere In the east. Mr. McCrary may be counted on to promote its interests to the utmost now that he Is secretary of wr. Like good offices mty be expeeted of him in the Improvement of the MlnHlnr-iimi river. A better aud more active friend could not Lave been selected, He may be relied upon to advance these interests in every legitimate manner. We hope Mr. McCrary may turn out better for our interests than Belknap, whose greatest achievment here was to make everything on the Island point to Daven port. An Illinois secretary of war would have been more satisfactory. Complimentary to Uncle Jo.

That the disease so prevalent in our city during December, January, and a part of February was the result of sewage pump ed by our water works I have no doubt, and my views are sustained by a very large majority of the profession in this neigh borhood. 1 am also sustained by clinical observations and experience as well as by microscopic and chemical testa. The cmora says inhalation or cblonn is followed by dangerous disease of the air passages like diphtheria."

Dr. Truesdale and myself also saw them under Dr. Cowden's microscope. So that the evidence of their presence in the water is beyond a doubt. How much organic matter is required to be present in water to produce disease no one pretends to say. "Germinal poisons are capable, under appropri ate conditions, of indefinite reproduction."

Prof. Humrnond. Chlorides were found by Dr. rarquhar- son in water taken lrom the hydrant at 20th stret and 9th avenue, also in water taken from the river at the mouth of 19th street sewer. v here did these chlorides come from? What caused their presence in the water taken from those places? There is but one answer to these questions, and that is, sewage was present. Dr. Ked zie says "the presence of chlorides in any sensible amount in water shoula lead us to reject it, because it would indicate sewage contamination." Chlorides do not belong to wholesome water, and their presence affords good grounds for suspecting sewage impurities. "The decision of the late medical meeting, or" ganized to convict." Union. The grounds on which the Medical As sociation based its conclusions, I may state as lollows: 1. The undeniable fact that the diarrhoea prevailed. 2. The clinical facts showing the large majority of those attacked to have been persons daily usiut hydrant water. 3. The positive evidence that .organic matter was preseut in the water and that organic matter will pro duce that kind ot disease. 4, Chemical tests showed the presence of organic mat ter in tne water o. me microscope showed positively and beyond a doubt the presence of amorphous, organic, moleolu lar matters, and globular matter in the orui of infusoria; and, 6. Because there was no evidence offered or attempt made to disprove these grounds for the preva- ence of the disease.

At French's in New York, Among those long standing, ever popular and never degenerating landmarks of com mercial convenience in the city of New York, none is more striking than French's Hotel, which founded on the European plan as far back as 1849, has kept up its undeyiating popularity until the present day, and the phrase "Meet me at French's,", is almost as well-known as "How do you do?" or "Good day." For twenty years it was run by Col. French its founder, and is now in the hands of his son, Mr. JT. J. French, admirably conducting this traveler's commonwealth, ably asisted by John McAlister. Central ly uituated, opposite to the new post office it strongly recommends itself by position, while its accommodations are not excelled by any hotel in the city. Six stories in height, reached by an elevator its bed rooms are elean, lofty and admirably ven tilated, with rnnoing water in every room, while its cuisene is under the charge ot a master iu the art, and the whole manage ment is based upon giving to the truest every comfort and convenience money can supply.
