4 THE CITY’S HEALTH. , Sanitary Condition of the South Division. Several Pestilence-Breeding Holes Discovered. Cleanliness the Great Prevent ive of Cholera. Public Opinion—Letters from the CHAPTSB V. All those who have been through the quarters thus far described in The Teibuse must admit that the statements and facts produced contain ed nothing but the truth. There has been no attempt at sensation or exaggeration. The dan gers that surround the rich and poor alike have rather been diminished than exaggerated. No one will deny that the greatest evil, the greatest danger of a great city, lies in insufficient sewer age, imperfect drainage, filthy slaughter and rendering houses, and dirty, crowded streets. It is an unpleasant, as well as an ungrateful, duty to go through all the dirty streets, all the pestholes and other dangerous places, and truth fully describe them, because thereby the ire and enmity of many wealthy parties, who only care for themselTes ard not for the rest of mankind, are aroused. Such parties would not for a mo ment hesitate to slander the writer of such articles because they dared to tell the truth in spite of their wealth, power, and political influence. As long as the places and habitations of the poor fire commented upon, they sit chuckling in their arm-chairs, and say, “Thank God, we are pot like other men; ” but as soon os their places are spoken of, they furiously rise up and cry “Slanderer, scoundrel, blackmailer.” The object of these articles has not been a desire to plunder, to hurt, or to frighten any one, but to arouse the public to a correct appreciation of the sanitary condition of our city, and to show the rich and wealthy that their interest in many ways is bound up in that of their poorer neigh bors, and that the health of one is irresistibly linaed with that of the other. If cholera should And a foothold in the poor and filthy districts heretofore described, it might gain such headway there that it would sweep from end to end of cur most aristocratic avenues. There is no rea son, as has been stated before, why our streets should not be clean and well-paved, and our city the healthiest in the world. It would certainly be far more beneficial to the health and prosperity of the city if the £3,000,000 intended to be expended in the erec tion of a new Court-House and City be used to complete tbe sewerage of our city and make our streets what they should bo— proper adjuncts to the splendid buildings lining them. A new Court-House can be erected five years hence as well as to-day, without injuring the health, comfort, and prosperity of any one. except, perhaps, a few geredy contractors and speculators; out our streets, and through them I our health, oannort afford to wait, and 1 should be attended to without delay. There is hardly a street in the city at the ' present time which does not need repairs. Take, for example, Clark street. That part of it which ! is newly paved has already settled in several S laces, while that part of tbe street between acksou and Twelfth is almost entirely impas sable, end tbe gutters are in many places ob structed by heaps of ashes and rotten vegeta bles. r £tato street, from the river to Thirty-ninth street, is in a still worse condition, having the old cobble pavement, which is in a shocking state of repair. Harrison street, between Clark and State, bn* been in such a terrible condition this spring that very often the mails were delayed because the fti wagons stuck fast in the mud. H? ' Third and Fourth avenues had been filled up y to grade about a year before the fire, but no effort has as yet been made to pave the same, consequently these two narrow and denselv-pop nlated streets are filthy, particularly Fourth ave nue, which becomes veiy foul and odorous be low Harrison street. The street is very unoven. and tbe deep depressions are full of stagnant water, and no ripple can be seen in it except when new supplies of slopsthrown from the dis reputable houses on each side cause it to over flow into the gutters. The small groceries on the avenues at the cor ners of Polk and Taylor streets are particular causes of offense. All their refuse as well as household garbage is thrust into the street, stooping up the gutters on either side. pn Taylor street, between Clark and Fourth avenue, there is a deep lake of stagnant water, surrounded by a number of the lowest, dirtiest kind of negro dives. * .The alleys all around this neighborhood are fiUf:y in the extreme, because the low classes living wound there will throw slops into them as scon as the sanitary policeman is out of sight. On Third avenue, between Taylor and Twelfth streets, jagged patches of water, of greater or less extent, are to be met with, all foul with more or less corruption and filth. The intense odor that here pervades everything is heightened by the fumes arising from a large, rickety, and danger ous structure occupied as a distillery. The deadly whisky that is hero manufactured may be smelled miles away, and the alcoholic gases arising therefrom do not .only poison the neigh borhood but enter the school-house next door. If the Board of Public Works and the Board of Health have not the power to abate this nuisance, the Board of Education certainly has the author ity to remove the school to more congenial quarters. But tbo latter seems to be prac ticsbiv insensible to the wants, health, and comfort of their wards. It was shown in yester day’s article that the odors arising from the overflowing water-closets at Newbeny School arc poisoning tho children there, and here the young pupils are compelled continually to inhale the fumes of deadly spirits. One of the worst and most dangerous streets on tbo South Side is Fourteenth, between State end Clark streets. Parts of this street have been filled np to grade, and others are still waiting for the Approvement. The filling-in was com menced more than three years ago, and all the unfilled parts aro full of filthy, stagnant water, from which protrudes the refuse and gamage thrown there by the neighbors/ Griswold street has been changed by our sagacious City Fathers to “ Pacific avenue,” but Pacific avenue still remains Griswold street, with its disreputable houses, dirt, and filth, although the street has been greatly improved by grading and paving. On the inhabited side of the street (the other side is a freight depot), the gutters form small rivers of stagnant .water, adorned here and there with little islands of slops. The yards end basements of some of the houses on this street ere in a very filthy state, and no au thority in the world can compel the people living there to keep their premises clean, ‘Whenever a sanitary policeman enters and warns them of the consequences, they feign the utmost ignorance of the English as well as of the German language (they are mostly Polanders), or swear by all that is holy that it was not them but their neighbors Who committed the nuisance. Sixteenth street, between State and Clark Is fa a very unhealthy condition, the catch-basins being stopped up, and the gutters inconsequence are full of dark green, stagnant water, which becomes particularly bad and odorous on the comer of Butterfield street. Seventeenth street, between State and Clark, is still worse, because a wooden trench drains all the filthy water from Libby & Co.’s packing house into the ditches of this street, which are brimful! of a putrid, greasy mass of corruption, boiling, bubbling, seething, and spreading stench on alf sides. How obnoxious and dangerous this place is may be inferred from the circumstance that one of the sufferers has placed the following oign prominently beside the ditch: $5 EEWAED for a Health Officer to attend and see thin ditch. Another gentleman has sent the following characteristic letter in regard to this place to the Board of Health, which explains itself; To the Board of Health : Gexts: On Seventeenth street, between State and Bumsiae streets, is on intolerable nuisance that de stroys the comfort and endangers the htahh of all the families in that neighborhood. T have called the atr tentioo of several policemen, »nd another party who claims to be connected In some way with your Board, and In every case an early abatement of the nuisance has been promised, but up to this moment no movement has bees made in that direction, Whet we all complain of is th*t People. To the Editor of The Chicago lYibune: Sir; In your timely and much-needed article in to-day’s issue, on the sanitary condition of our city, and in that part referring to the Fif teenth and Sixteenth Wards, occurs the follow ing; “Another-street which reeks with filth, and can be singled out by the all-pervading odor, is Bauman street, fronting tho Milwaukee Bail road. This street is bad all through, but is worst in front of the residence of Justice Van’fc Woud-” Why my name must be connected with so much filth 1 cannot toll, especially since I do not reside upon the street mentioned. I used to reside there, and, while 1 did so, it was always my boast and prido to keep my premises in an exemplary, neat, and tidy condition, as all who know me can testify. My present residence, in the Eleventh Ward, is open for inspection at all times. I remained in the Fifteenth Ward until I had exhausted all the means at my command to bring about much-needed improvements, but when everything had failed that I and the promi nent men of tho neighborhood had tried in order to create a healthy state of affairs. I pulled up my stakes and moved away in disgust. I re spectfully ask you to do me the justice to cor rect tho erroneous statement in the article men tioned.

To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune .* Sib: In regard to your articles on cholera, filthy streets, etc., allow the writer to remark what a blessing it would he if the Temperance Bureau could be changed to a Cholera Bureau. As a Temperance Bureau, these gentlemen with fine noses have certainly done more harm than good; but, if they would kcop away from in offensive beer-saloons, and set about hunting up the dirty and offensive places in the city, and have them brought to the notice of the proper authorities, all their former sins would be for given. Very respectfully, A Gzmian. Chicago, June 20, 1873. mo ST A PHYSICIAN. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Sib : So much has been said and written on the subject of prevention of cholera within the last few weeks.that one would imagine the subject to be threadbare and exhausted, but I think the more vital parts have not been tonched as vet People have got accustomed to look too much to the Board of Health and expect too much from the Board. .Of course cleanliness is one of the groat preventives of pestilential disease of any or eveiy type, but the best efforts .of the Board of Health wiU be of little or no avipl unless back ed up by ■ the people. The authorities may cleanse the city aud make it as bright as a new dollar, but even then we are* not impervious to the pestilence. Statistics show that cholera may bo engendered in the sewers and the dune heap, but how or why ? Is it from the contagion or infection ? Certainly not, but by decay, pu trefaction, or fermentation. The use or abuse of new vegetables (especially of half-cooked or raw), unripe fruits,' improperly preserved smoked meats, fish, and sausage, together with the use of fermented and in toxicating liquors, is a sure and predisposing cause to, aa also productive of, cholera. It stands to reason tn£t if decay or putrefaction will produce misama in the dunghill, fer mentation (which is only a "poculi&s species of decay) will also produce miasmatic poison in the alimentary canal, where both the temperature and moisture are favorable to fermentation. Another prolific source of danger is in the nso fro™ packing-house there ia run every night a stream of putrid, bloody corruption, and Instead of leading it Into the sewer, it Is allowed to flow Into the gutters on the street, attracting millions of flics, and causing an odor offensive in the extreme ; so much so that the families near by are compelled to close doors and windows for self-protection. Now, gentlemen, I call on you for Immediate action before disease and death enter oar dwellings. Bnt give it an examination and yon will wonder that we have remained quiet bo great a length of time. Respectfully yours, Er> wam> Gavin, This letter was referred hr the Board of Health to Sanitary Policeman Merki, who examined the premises and indorsed the letter as follows : I have examined th® within premises complained of, and find that Libby runs waste water Into a wooden drain leading into Seventeenth street, but blood there is none, except the brownish color of pork brine giving it the color of blood. The water is salty and strong, and there Is but little smell from It, but the gutters on Seventeenth street, being full of stagnant wafer from private drains from the dwellings, there being no sewer, and through the neglect of the Board of Public Works in cleaning aforesaid gutters, it la very* offensive. I have given notice to Messrs. Libby A Co. to connect with the State street sewer, also to the. proper parties to clean said gutters. Respect* fhlly, Louis Meuki, Sanitary Police Fourth Ward. A second visit to this placo reveals the fact that the gutters have since been cleaned, and that the other grievances complained of have been remedied. Butterfield street, between Sixteenth and Twenty-second, has lately been cleaned, but still there is about a foot of stagnant water in the ditches, which are considerably deeper than the catch-basins. The ditch on the west side of the street is filled up with earth in front'of tho Catholic church, which also prevents the water from running off. The church authorities op pose letting the ditch ran through for some rea son best known to themselves. This street is worst between. Eighteenth ttreat and Archer avenue. Here‘the gutters are everywhere ob structed by heaps of ashes and stagnant water is standing under nearly every house, emit ting an odor that makes ft very unpleasant for those that live there. O. Xi. and William leaks are in a great measure responsible for this state of affaire on tho South Side. Their property is nearly all built up with rickety structures, on which repairs are hardly ever made. Many of their houses, if not a majority of them, are rented to poor people. That part of the Fourth Ward lying between Twenty-fourth and Twenty-seventh streets, and State and Clark streets, is also very unhealthy, the ground being very low and there are no. sew ers to carry off the refuse water of dense popula tion. The rest of the South Side, which is mostly high land, well sewered, paved and graded, is in a tolerable good and healthy condition, and is mostly inhabited by the aristocracy of the city. A FIVE-ACRE CESS-POOL. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune : 6m; Will you pleaso send your health re porter to the neighborhood of the Rolling-Mills, where we have something to show him that will make even his hardened proboscis tremble. Wo have something here worth seeing, something not new, but huge. It is a cesa-pool—dimensions five acres. It is a cess-pool of the first magni tude—the boss cess-pool in town. Its aroma is stronger than rod popper, and its infecting and disease-breeding capacity wonderful indeed. Send him up and let him see and smell for himself. This ooss-pool is in the rear of the distilleries, and feeds into tho branch, carrying its baleful odors through the city. Such another mass of filth is not to be seen on the continent. Tho continent could not survive two such. One is sufficient for the whole country, but is too much for tins locality j send up that reporter and lot him write it up. The pool is increasing, all the time from tho swill slop of the cattio pens. Is there no reme dy ? How would it do to convert the cattle into meat? Wo have need of- same assistance to fight this cess-pool. Alone and unaided the •cess-pool conquers us. Won’t you send up that reporter ? Please do. John A. Smale, Comer Centro and Dayton streets. Chicago, Juno 21, 1873, AN UNLIMITED COMPLAINT. To the Board of Health of the City: Gentlemen ; Undersigned citizens and tax payers of the City of Chicago beg leave to lay before your honorable body our unlimited com plaint against a rendering establishment carried on in tho centre of the city, in a thickly popu lated district of all classes of people, No. 491 South Canal street, between Bunker and Twelfth streets, in an old, dilapidated- rotten and filthy frame shanty, right on one of the dirtiest allies of this city, where all kinds of sickness are prevalent. The foul and heart-aching smell at the time when rendering is done (almost every day and night) is of the most sickening charac ter, enough to fell the stoutest man. Two chil dren, respectively of 9 and 4 years old, the latter right next door to said establishment, are al ready quite ill, moat likely the result of tho stench from this place; and no doubt more victims will follow. Our doors and windows we must have closed in this hot season, in order to keep out the foul air, and whenever w© go outdoors the sickening smell meets us. The only remedy of the evil La to atop this unlawful nuisance. If your honor able body wish to. do justice to humanity, and for the welfare of this eo much-tried city, you can only do it by personally examining, at the time when rendering is done, the premises, and you will find more danger for the neighbors, and tho community in general, than words can ex press. We therefore pray you not to delay look ing into this very grave affair, and see to it at once, while it is not too late to bo regretted, and by this prevent untold dangers from its conse quences. Signed by & large number of citizens residing in the neighborhood.' A MISTAKE CORRECTED. John Yan’t Woud. of putrid cheese. Cheese of ©very description acquires its peculiar flavor (so much admired by some) simply from the different stages of pu trescence through which it passes, and is, there fore, peculiarly fitted to poison the secretions. Fermentation, whether produced spontaneously or by the introduction of liquors in a state of fermentation, or by any other cause or causes, will undoubtedly produce diarrhea, colic, dysen tery, cholera, ana In many cases symptoms simi lar to those produced by mineral and other ir ritant poisons. Now, if we cannot altogether prevent cholera, what can we do ? We must try and control it when it mokes its ap pearance. The first symptom generally is a chill, cramp, colic, or violent purging, fol lowed by rigors or spasms. A physician should be called at once on the first symptom of the disease. In British India, which is generally supposed to bo the cradle or hot-bed of cholera, the soldiers ore each supplied with a small bottle of preparation called The (Medical Field-Com panion,” which they are ordered to take accord ing to directions on the first symptom of chol era, until they can get the services of the Regi mental Surgeon. I inclose a receipt for The Medical Field-Companion,” which you are at liberty to publish. This remedy will not cur© cholera, but it will, by arresting fermentation. &v., tend to ameliorate or abate the attack nntu such time as a physician arrives, when he can follow out his own mode of treatment. X have soon this remedy used in a groat number of coses with the best results, and can vouch for its efficacy. Respectfully yours, J. McLean Fleming, M. D.

INFORMATION WANTED. To the Editor of ’lhe Chicago Tribane Sib : In lost Sunday’s issue you inserted a communication from me in regard to tho use of cold water in cases of cholera, with a request that some of onr leading physicians would give their views upon tho subject, but, strange to say, up to this time there has beenbo reply. Now, as the matter is one of very groat impor tance, there being every prospect of our having a visit from tho dread disease, will you please insert tide request that some of our professional men will give their views upon the subject, and thus relieve the anxiety of a number of those who, having read both articles, are unable to decide which course to pursue in case of neces sity, and oblige yours respectfully, THE FARMEKS* BANK. Another Meeting’ of the Creditor* of the Bead Institution—More Deposit or« Moke Their Appearance and De mand an Examination of the Book* —What it Amounted to* The creditors of the dead Fanners’ Bank held another meeting yesterday afternoon at Ela * Parker’s law office, the expectation being that they would patiently listen to the report of tho Committee appointed at a previous meeting to examine the books of the defunct concern. But the Committee, though creditors themselves, and consequently supposed to be familiar'with'the suspicious ways of that class, woie taken aback by tho appearance of a number of now depositors who had not been present at the previous meet* lugs, and who smelled fraud and deception in everything. The bank was burst, and the Committee sold out. Each one of them wanted to examine the books for himself. Each one be lieved there were assets, and that tho Committee had some. Each creditor was lean and hungry faced, and was accompanied by a starving law yer, who asked questions of the Committee, shook his head at tho replies, and noted them down. Tho jo creditors occasionally injected remarks, and, holding on to the coat-tails of their attor neys seemed to be busied in urging them to wor ry the Committee, “sicking "them on, as it were. When one of the creditors got tired of this he would seize a bystander, draw him into a retired part of the room, near tho door of tho vault, and there mysteriously communicate his suspicions. Ho was a poor man, and he had 8300 in that bank, sir, and tho Committee pro tended to say that it was all gone. They know pretty well whore it was. Ho would like to un derstand why it was that tho Committee took things so easily, and dressed so well, unless they had a fat thing of it. Ho was going to expose them, if it cost every cent he had. By this time his lawyer, seeing his client in private confab with an unknown man, and fearing that ho was being stolon away from him, would rush in and recapture his property, and admonish him that he had put the case in tho hands of a professional man, and that whatever he said would be taken as evidence against him, which froze up tho flow of cordiality in tho breast of that creditor, and set him to looking steadily out of tho window. When asked why ho deposited in such a picayune bank, ho repeated, parrot-fashion, that ho had taken legal advice,—ask his lawvcr. Another creditor, just returned to town, safd he did not want any such games played on him. Ho was an old stager, and they could not put off any cut and dried reports on him. Ho was going to see about “ them assets.” If TenEyck was an hon est man. he would just take off his coat and hand it over. Everything he had was assets. If there was any law, ho would strip him. Another creditor remarked that ho judged his hearer was a family man, aud if so, ho will understand his case. He had 6112 in that swindling-shop, and he had intended to draw it out next week, because ho was expecting an event in his family, tho fourth of that kind, and the money would bo wanted for clothes, doctor etc. Now the money was gone, and the event was a-coming. What was a man to do in such & case ? •' Wuat was tho uso of being a married man if such things were allowed ? Then his lawyer stopped in and seized him. Another man said ho was poor, but he was willing to give 60 cents—yes, he would make it 75 to have those committeemen written up as they ought to bo. It was time that people should know how poor workingmen were imposed on Then ho went on to give incidents from the lives of these committeemen, to all of which ho was ready to make affidavit. At last the patience of tho Committee gave way, and they requested tho creditors lu come down to the bank with them and look at the for themselves. Tho lawyers informed the Committee that they did not want to com pound a felony, but theix clients would go it being underetood, however, that they thereby waived none of their rights in tho premises, and did not obligate themselves to abide by the re sult of tho examination then and there made Iho Committee agreed, and they all started pro cesßipn-wise, for the bank on Clark street, ob serving the following order; Stout com mitteeman with umbrella; fat and lean committeeman, arm in arm, protesting the integrity of then: motives; bank officers and employes protesting the integrity of their mo tives ; lawyers and creditors arm in arm: holder of chattel mortgage on tho safe, with his friend • creditors who had no lawyers, but who meant to loak at the books anyhow. Tbs procession reached the bank, and tho books were produced. The man of the mortgage felt the safe to see that his property hod not been tampered with. The creditors looked in tho money-drawer to see if something had not been overlooked; one of them picked up a pin and was reprimanded therefor by a lawyer, who wanted it inventoried as port of the assets. The legal brethren stared at tho books, wagged their heads, and looked wise. They added up figures on slips of paper and disagreed in tho result. Whenever they found an erasure in a ledger, they observed chorally “ That looks bad,” aud they hold that page up so the light could shine through it. and they could see what had been written before; and all the creditors gathered around them and held their breath, pursed their lips, and looked at the Committee as much as to say “ Aha!” Then tho lawyers would note this erasure with stumpy pencils, first snekingat tho points there of to make them mark. When the lawyers got through, tho creditors wanted to have a hand in, and they fumbled over the books as if they ex pected to find their money there. The Commit tee fanned themselves while the business was C! }’ and talked about their motives. The investigation lasted a long, and it was finally resolved to place the settlement of the affairs of the bank in the hands of ilr. Evert who is expected to report next Baturday at 2 Pure Wines.
