3 THE COUNCIL. Important Communication from the Mayor. lie Advises an Appropriation of at Least $700,000 for New Sowers. _i And Points Out Where the Money Can be Obtained. Petitions, Communications, and . , Orders—Street Improve ments. The Oouncll had a regular meeting yesterday evening, Aid. McGrath in the chair.

Eckhordt, Stout, Leugachor, Bohaffner, Cannon, Ogdon, Woodman, sewerage, Tbo following communication from tbo Mayor was road and referred to tbo Committee of the Wholo. Gentlemen; As tho city charter provides that tho ordinance making appropriations for tho fiscal year must bo passed before tho Ist day of July, tho work must, tboroforo, bo completed within a wook from date. Before tho Appropriation bill reported by tho Finance Committee nos boon passed upon in Commit tee of tho Whole, I doalro to offer for jour considera tion somo recommendations In regard to tho appro priation for sowers. I observe a strong and active pressure for Increased appropriations for nearly all municipal purposes brought to bear on tbo legislative body, until tho aggregate amounts now under consid eration foot up over ffi.OOO,COO. Of this Immense imn only $300,000. or ouo-twcutloth part, 1b pro posed to bo devoted to citundlng sowers, which, In my opinion, la greatly Inadequate to meet tbo Imperative necessities that exist for moro sewerage. Instead of only 6 per cent of tho appro priations being devoted to this important purpose, I /would strongly recommend that at least 13 per vent bo applied; but not by adding to tbo aggregate, which threatens to,be largo beyond precedent, but by reducing proposed amounts for various other pur poses, and transferring tho saving to tbo sower exten sion Item, In this way I think at least $400,000 might fee placed to tho credit of that account, in addition to the $300,000 proponed by tho Finance Committee, making a total of $700,000 to bo expended for sewerage vxloußTons. I observe that It Is proposed to increase tbo public school houses 35 per cent in a single year, also tbo flro department' 40 per cent, and other departments end Interests in nearly like proportion, while tho ad dition to tho sewerage Is only proposed to bo 10 per cont. , In my view tho need of additional sewerage sur- E asses that of every other municipal want. It Is. rgod by every sanitary consideration, and la virtual-. Jv essential' to tho general welfare. An Inspection of luo maps of the Board of Public Works shows that, whereas nine-tenths of tho populated area of tho city Is supplied with hydrant water from the lake, and a nearly equal proportion have their streets lighted with gas, scarcely naif tbo Inhabitants have sowers, or any moans of under-ground drainage for tbo enormous Accumulations of liquid impurities which, lying on the surface, become putrid, and .. poison tho atmosphere with their gaseous ex halations, adding fearfully to tho bills of mortality, nod endangering tho health of tho whole city from the unread of cpldomlo diseases. Contagious and epi demic diseases first break out, rage worst and last longest in the low, wet, aud unsewsred sections of a city; tbcoce they spread to other portions, carrying death in their train. Every form ox disease is ren dered moro malignant and potent by noxious vapors from filthy streets and premie os, and It is not possible to enforce or maintain a proper degree of cleanliness or salubrity In hot or wet weather whore there is no eov*crQßo. Tbo loathsome small-pox can never be ex tirpated while great and densely-inhabited districts of tbo city remain In their present uudralued condition. It unfortunately so happens that tho unseworod por tions of tho city have tho least elevation above tbo sur face of tho river, and tbo most Impervious solL To aggravate tbo evil, those portions aro nearly all densely populated by the laboring and poorer classes of people, who ore least capable, from lack of moans and educa tion, to apply efficient remedies by efforts of their own ; and they patiently suffer and endure from this cause an amount of Sickness and distress which,lnflict ed on the wealthier and educated classes would bo intol erable,—driving them to disperse or go out of tho city. The higher and drier parts of tho city, where there is considerable natural drainage, or a sandy soil which quickly absorbs liquid impurities, have been nearly all carefully sewered at groat expense, as it Is very costly to build sowers where deep outting through quick sands is required; and, consequently, these parts of tho city are In a cleanly and healthy condition, and os • result, mortality rates are low and tho value of real estate on such streets high. The time has come when those loug-pcgloctcd dis tricts cannot safely bo neglected any lopgcr, but must -bo sewered, lot tho cost bo what it may. They have fcpcomo bo densely populated that it is simply Impossible for want of drainage, artificial or natural, $o make them clean or healthy. Largo sums aro an nually expended by tbo city In abortive efforts to keep p|*en>ho'gutters and make tho streets passable in wet weather, but every shower of rain washes the removed dirt back into the gutters. A considerable porttion of these low, mucky districts is embraced in tho flro limits, and the inhabitants who wish to erect brick bullrings or construct brick basements under their cottages orb prevented from so doing by want of street sewers with'' which' to connect their private drains. It is also impracticable to grade and pave or macadamize the streets In such sections; and thus tbo value of tbo property is kept depressed, end tbo health of the Inhabitants seriously Injured. Tho effect of d Bower on a street connecting with tho abutting tenements by private drains is very remarka ble. .The most filthy, spongy, and worst streets' are Instantly converted into dry and salubrious ground, whore sickness Immediately decreases, and sanitary rules can bo enforced. Tho portions of tho city which I would urgently rec ommend to hare eowored this year, and tho money to bo appropriated thorofor. are those which aro lowest and most thickly populated. They will bo chiefly found in the vicinity of tho South and North Branches of the Chicago River, and between Halatod street and Ashland avenue and Harrison and Twenty-second. Streets. There is a low and wot tract of 300 to 400 acres lying west of State street and south of Archer avenue, almost destitute of sewerage, although It con tains a population pf not less than 18,000. But tho worst drained districts In the city and the moat dense ly populated are those between Halatcd and Loomis, Harrison and Twenty-second streets, and tho angle between Sixteenth, Halefed, and tho South Branch. 'Within those limits there are about 640 acres of un sewered territory, and containing at least 60,000 In habitants, who endure Inconceivable misery for want of sewerage. There are largo portions of the Fifteenth Ward in nearly as deplorable condition for want of drainage. It is safe to say that at least 20.000 Inhabi tants of that ward are suffering severely from the aamo cause. Portions of tho Sixteenth and Seventeenth Wards are in os bod a plight as tho Fifteenth Ward. Tbe total area which imperatively demands sewerage at this time Is fully 1,800 acres, or about three square miles, on which reside more than 100,000 suffering in habitants. What will it probably cost to sewer this area? I find by referring to the last report of tbe Board of Public Works that tbe average cost of constructing “ crock ” Bowers in 1870-1 was (1.49 per foot; two foot brick newer, $2.01: two and a half foot brick, $3.69; three foot, (4.45; roar foot, (4.03; five foot, (6.68; six foot, not stated, but it ranges from (7 to (8 per foot for ordinary depths through day cutting. Tho average cost per foot for all sizes in 1870-1 was (2.44 per foot, dr about (13,000 per mile; and th<« kind of work can bo dono rather cheaper this year than tboao years. There would bo little or no quicksand or doop cutting lu tho districts to which I have alluded, and consequently the work could be rapidly and cheaply performed. Tho actual length of sowers needed to uudordrala the 1.900 acres of before described territory Is about fifty-four miles, which, at an average of $13,000 per mile, would make a total cost of $700,000. If this drainage were constructed the people of Chicago would breathe easier lu the presence of cholera or other pestilence, and tho weekly death roll reported t>y the Board of Health would greatly diminish, while every Interest of tho city would bo promoted by tho improved health and cleanliness of the laboring population. The next question to consider Is that of ways and moans,—how to raise tho necessary money without burdening the tax-payers. It Is tho opinion of tho Corporation Counsel that tho specific limitations of tho charter as to rate of taxation for sewerage or other purposes will no longer bo lu force after tho Ist of July ensuing, by reason of the legislation of lust winter; that the proper course for the Council Is to appropriate Bpodflo sums of money for tho various objects con tained In the Appropriation bill, instead of so many piths and fractious of a mill as heretofore under pre vious laws. Ho also advises mo that tho Council may appropriate such sums as It dooms nocosuory for tho finking fund for the general bonded debt, Tho city pot being limited as to tho ralo of taxation for sewer age. such an amount may bo appropriated aa’tho Coun cil think advisable under the ciroumetauccs. It Is not necessary to levy mure than a nominal sum for tho Binklng-fuud fur tho general bonded debt. There is now standing to .tlio credit of tho sinking fund (443,900, while tli O: bonds which fall duo this year amount to (no,ooo, lud noxt year to $132,000, tho year after to $100,009, and lu 1870 only (05,000: and until 1879 tho bonds lulling duo are inconsiderable. lu addition to tho general slaking fund, the appro priation bill before the Council provides for three fpcclul sinking funds, viz : fur sewerage bonds, sll,- 032.73; for river Improvement, (44,088.10 ; ami for •chool bonds, $16,000; total, (101,620.83. This sum, with that standing to tho credit of the sinking fund, provides more money than can bo used for the redemption of city bonds, unless they are purchased at a premium years in advance of their maturity. Tho charter authorizes the reissue of bonds as they fall due, and tho Constitution forbids an Increase of tho bonded debt of the city. Under these circumstances it will bo seen that the credit of the city J j abundantly protected without increasing the sink ing-fund tux beyond a nominal sum this year. I would, therefore, advise that (lie Item of (209,000 for the sinking fund bo reduced to (10,000, and tbe differ ence of (190.000 bo added to the amount for r«wer.igo, j would also advise that (bo (30,000 sppro- Eriatcd lut year for building a bridge on [aisled street over the North Branch Canal, and which has lapsed Into Uie treasury bo appropriated to sewerage. The building of tbo bridge can safely bo postponed for a year, as there la another bridge cloeo by crossing tho canal on Division street. This money Wilt bo sunidnnt to build two and a third miles of sow ers In tho North Division, and which Is mure needed at present than tho bridge. I would respectfully recommend tho postponement Until next year of tho following proposed appropria tions : $35,000 for a lot and fire-engine between Wells and Stale, and Goethe and Elm ; $20,000 for tho Elm Street Hcbool-UouBo'; $50,000 for a now police station to replace tho Union and Madison street throe-story brick station bouse; SIO,OOO for a brick building to replace the wooden Babcock engine house at Washington and Clinton streets; $15,000 for a school-house on Twelfth and Contra avouuo; $14,000 for two artesian wells and a fountainj and $33,600 for a lot and flro engine to bo located some place In tho Fourteenth Ward. The total of these sums, including tho $300,000 In tho Appropriation bill for sowers, la $711,000, which, If carefully and Judi ciously expended whore it will do most good, will construct more than fifteen miles of sowers this year, and rescue 100,000 of (ho laboring poor out of filth, mire, and, I might almost say without exaggeration, out of tho Jaws of death, and place them on firm dry laud, and lu a condition fo live aud enjoy life. 1 da not wish to bo understood as convoying tbo Idea that tho items named are not needed for tho purposes staled In tho Appropriation bill: whnt I moan to say is, that they are not so greatly needed as tho fifteen miles of sowers which the money would build, and can bettor be deferred until next season than the construction of tho sowora. There are other Items In tho Appropriation bill which might safely bo postponed or reduced, ami (ho amns thus saved employed In tho construction of more sewers, several of which will readily suggest them selves to you. ! 1 In conclusion. I recommend most earnestly that your honorable body will innko such revision of tho Appropriation blit as will furnish tho money for drain ing tbo low. unhealthy, thickly-populated portions of tho city which have heretofore been neglected, with out, at tbo same lime,overburdening the tsx-payora who are struggling to recover from their fearful fire losses, and who, lu any evont, will have a heavy load to carry, no matter how much effort.'you may make to keep tho Appropriation bill within reasonable bounds. Respect fully, Joseph Medill, STREET IMPROVEMENTS.

It was adopted, and tho ordinance passed as amended. The Council thou adjourned till half-past 2 this afternoon. THE CHOLERA, Prevention Better Than Cure* To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune. Sin: £ have soon a good doal in your paper, and others, on tho subject of chplora, and would like to make a saggostiou or two. Thoro is littlo doubt that tho disease is spread mainly from noglocting to deodorize tho dis charges of patients, and to completely’cleanse tho bod or othor clothes infoctod. Several plans havo boon suggested by tho uso of disinfectants, oil requiring forethought and outlay, and thoro foro not likely to bo available at tho timo when moat wanted. Now, tho host disinfectant wo havo is common earth, which is available at onoo; and tho simple plan is lobury all discharges, vomit or other, in tho ground immediately, wash ing out tho utensils perfectly, and put tho clothes infoctod into boiling water,with soap pored dowu into small bits, or washing powder. This is tho simplest way of preventing tho spread ; and now for chocking the tendency to take tho disease. It is generally supposed that tho uso of vege tables and fruit increases tho tendency. lam firtniy convinced, from my own observations, that it is just the contrary; that tho consump tion of fresh meat is tho principal. predisposing cause ; and that tho uso of sound vegetables and ripe fruit is the greatest preventive, with tho addition of rice, beaus, oto., and very little pota toes ; also, an almost total abstinence from alcoholic drinks, —1 moan spirits. As to tbo treatment, it must vary so much, according to circumstances, I will not offer any suggestions, os they would necessarily bo very long. 1 only say, got tho best available modical advice, and apply the greatest possible amount of dry beat to tho pit of tbo stomach. Chicago, Juno 21,11173. On Kay. Water in Cholera* To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune Bm: Tho question has boon twice put, through the columns of Tub if water should bo given or withhold in cholera. In view of the possibility of oar having this dread disease to contend with during tho hot season so close at baud, and considering tbe question an important and pertinent one, 1 take tho liberty of responding. Owing to tho vomiting and purging which forms so marked a feature in this disease, there is a very groat transudation of tho watery ele ments of tho blood into tho alimentary canal. From this loss of water, tho blood becomes dense and viscid, and tho blood-globules are relatively in excess. Tho serum of tho blood also becomes notably deficient in salty elements, which havo escaped with tho transuded water. Thus, some of tho most striking phenomena of tho disease in question aro plainly attribut able to tho blood-lesions produced lu this way. That these changes aro transient, and admit of speedy readjustment, provided tho transudation can bo prevented or chocked in time, has boon demonstrated by tho experience of our pro fession. Thus it is plain to bo soon that tho introduc tion of liquids into the system is very desirable, and should bo resorted to as for as possible without provoking vomiting. It more often happens, however, that tho stomach will retain but little liquid of any kind. Wo must then pro ceed with caution. Water mav bo properly given in small quantities at a time, if retained. Small lumps of 100 should bo freely allowed, subject to tho same instructions. Also, concentrated nour ishment, such os essence of moat, chicken broth, and milk. Very respectfully, Oscar J. Price, M. D. To the Editor of The Chicago IHbune Bin: In Sunday’s Tridune I noticed a letter from “ S. Goldsmith,” asking for information regarding tho use of cold water iu cholera. This has boon a much-disputodmattor lu all countries visited by the pestilence; but, as ho says, it is a matter of groat importance. I will try aud an swer him satisfactorily. First of all, what Is cholera ? It la a disease exhibiting the following symptoms: First, a discharge ■ from tho bowels and stomach of a fiuid resembling rice-water, which finid is tho serum or watery portion of tho blood; second, dlllloulty in breathing; third, irregular aud fee ble action of tho heart; fourth, suppression or arrest of tho urinary secretion; fifth, tho blood In both tho arterial aud venous systems is of a binuk, tarry, thick appearance, and therefore circulates very slowly and imperfectly through tho capillaries or smaller sob of blood-vessels. Li tho noxt place, what is thirst ? Thirst is ex plained or defined in tho dictionaries as a painful sensation in tho fauens, indicating n want of drink. But that scarcely covers it. Thirst is simply a manifestation of an insufficient quan tity of water in tho blood. Now compare those together, and what are tho Indications ? In all countries, medical men of note recommend the use of diluents in oholora; and, as a diluent is a liquid employed to dilute The ciitCAdo daily trirunE: Tuesday, June 24, i 573 .. , or woakon another fluid whoa added to It. Its virtue rests In tho water which It contains. Tho most popular diluents aro Ilusood-toa,.toast- 1 water, harloy-wator, rlco-wator. lemonade, otd. Many contend that water ertunpt bo absorbed by tho stomach or bowels during cholera; but, If not water, why tho other popular remedies ? Tho Jesuit Fathers In India employed camphor water (which is simply water flavored with camphor, an camphor is but very sparingly soluble In water) in quantities of half a pint ovory hour or half hour, according to circum stances : and tho Jesuits wore very successful hi treating tho disoaso. Dr. Macintosh, of Edinburgh, tried a very novel way of introducing Water into tho blood, Ho ulusolvod 210 grains of common salt and 80 grains of bicarbonate of soda in 10 imperial pints. of water, warmed to a temperature of 112 degrees; and tho wholo was injected, in tho course of about half-au-honr, into tho veins. Dr. Macintosh treated 166 hopeless cases in this way, and in every' enso tho symptoms cither subsided orontiroly disappeared fora tirao; but, unfortunately, in ft largo majority, returned with Increased violences and, of tbo 156, only 26 rooovorod entirely. Due even this number of re coveries is encouraging under thodroumstnneos, aud tho abovo might bo tried horo la 11 hopeless cases.** Whore cold water is given os a beverage, loo wator. In quantities of about a gill, is the bout, repeated ovory half-hour. In many cases whore it can bo got conveniently, tho carbonic water, os drawn fronvtbo soda-water fountains, la prefer able to tho plain water, as being more oxbailrat ing. Tho addition of 10 grains of bicarbonate of soda or potassa, with CO grains of powdered gum- Arabio, to each draught, will tonu to cause its more rapid absorption, and also act as on emolli ent. Respectfully yours, J. MoLeam Fleming, M. D., 112 West Washington street. Cliolcra-Romctlica. From the A'cto York Journal of Commerce. Moro than forty years ago. when it was found that prevention for tho Asiatic cholera was easier than care, the learned doctors of both hemispheres drew up a proscription, which was published (for working people) in tbo Now York Sun, and took the naino of tho “Bun Cholera Mixture." Our contemporary never lent its name to a hotter article. Wo have soon It in constant use for lioarly two-scoro years, and found it to bo tho best remedy for looseness of tho bowels over yot devised. It is to bo com mended for several reasons. It is not to bo mixed with liquor, and therefore will not bo used os an alcoholic beverage; its ingredients -ore well known among all tho common people, and it will have no prejudice to combat; ooch of the ma terials is in equal proportion to the others, and it may tboroforo bo compounded without pro fessional skill; and, os tho dose is so very small, it may bo carried in a tiny phial in- tho waistcoat pocket, and bo always at band. It is: TincL opil, Capsid, Ilhol co., Month pip., Compile. Mix tho above in equal parts: dose, 10 to 30 drops.. In plain terms, take equal parts tincturo of opium, rod popper, rhubarb, peppermint, aud camphor, and mix them lor use. In case of diarrhoea, take a dose of 10 to 20 drops in throe or four toaapoonfuls of water. No one who has this by him, and takes it in time, will over have the cholera. From the Fort Wayne (Tnd.) Gazette . Tho following proscription, taken from tho advanced leaves of Dr. 11. V. Bworingon’s Phar maceutical Dictionary, is said to bo tho best rem edy known for tho cure of cholera: Tinct, opil. Spiritl LovonduL Co., as, one fluldounce. Tinct. Capsid, half u fiuldounco. Tinct, Cataphora, ono and a bnif fluldounccs. Flat mistura, capiat m xx vol xl, pro to uaU. On the occurrence of the earliest symptoms of tho oholeraio diarrhoea, it should bo given in doses of from thirty to sixty drops every hour (or oftonor if required), confining tho patient strictly to a horizontal position, untill all tendency to tho diarrhoea is entirely overcome. To the Editor of the Cincinnati Gazette: I give you a simple recipe to stop cholera-mor bus. I doubt not but that it will also chock cholera in its first stage : Tako tho white of on egg; boat it, adding to it granulated sugar, If possible to bo had; if not, white sugar. Continue to boat, aud add sugar until tho mixture will ’ rope very thick. Tako, in extreme cases, throe or four toaspoon fuls as soon os prepared. After this take a tea spoonful every half hour, either shortening or lengthening the time, as tho case may seem to require. It is very good for children in cholera infantum and summer-complaint. 1 know of Us good qualities In cholera-morbus; it saved my self, as also ono of my neighbors. THE CITY IN BRIEF.

Last Friday evening two Scotchmen, members of tho Caledonian Olub, met in Iron’s saloon, at tbo comor of Halstod and Monroe streets, to tako a social glass. After imbibing freely, tnoy fell to boxing, and Anally, becoming enraged, their playful “passes” led thorn to fighting. Thoy woro quiokly separated, but, determined to satisfy their boated passions, they made ar rangements to moot with seconds, at somo place outaldo tho city, on Sunday afternoon, and en gage in a scientific fist-Agut.

A Philadelphian, who gave tho namo of Ed ward J. Roberts, made a victim of a St. Louis “ school mom, and robbed her of all she possessed. She was a native of North Danville, - VI., but until rocontly was employed os teacher in a St. Louis publio school. About tbroo weeks ago sho mot Edward, who told her ho was a widower and hod two children living in Phila delphia, and that ho was in a lucrative business. Ho induced her to oomo to Chicago, aud while at tho Briggs House proposed for herhand and was accepted, and the two were married. Quo morning Edward said ' he had lost his pocketbook, containing S6OO, and his wife generously gave him all her savings—about 6400. He also took her watch, “to have it sot

correctly," as ho said, and, after giving her a $lO , bill and tho ebook for her trunk, stopped out u for a few moments." Ho did not como back, and Mrs. Roberts, believing ho had gone for good, returned io St. Louis. Tho Chief of Police of that city is now looking for Edward, but it is very doubtful if ho Buds him. The follow is probably a Chicagoan who wont to St. Louis to victimize a woman in order to got oven with tho females’ of that suburban village, one of whom, it is said, caught a Chicago man nap ping, and filched $2,000 from him.

Brown was mode Chairman, and W. S. MoMillon Secretary. A committee on resolu tions was appointed, of which M. D. Harter was Chairman. 'Xho following is the report of the Committee, which, after brief discussion was, unanimously adopted: WnEOEAS, In the opinion of this Convention, both the political parlies have proved Blgnolly unfaithful to the irußta committed to their care, local and in the na tion at large, and have given ua ’extravagance where they promised economy, and inofQclcnoy whom wo should have hud ability In tho management of public allalra; therefore Resolved, That, cutting loose from party aflUlatlona, wo recommend tho fanners and workingmen repre sented lu convention to-day, toplooo before the people of the country men selected from our midst who, while faithful representatives of the interests of labor* lug men, will, at tho same time, bring to the adminis tration of the 001 cos for which they are nominated honesty and otQclonoy. Resolved, That wo will use every fair and honorable moans to secure the election of tho ticket which may bo placed In nomination to-day, and, while urging this course upon all people in the county who desire hon esty and fair dealing In tho management of tho affairs of tho county, we do not seek to bind any one to tho support of any special political doctrines, aiming solely to bring about substantial reform within our own county.
