HEALTH COMMITTEE GETTING ACTIVE UNSANITARY CONDITIONS IN CER TAIN QUARTERS LEADS TO INVESTIGATION. Salary of Health Officer Commen oorato With Duties In Hanv ' . lot of 400 or 500 People. Tho health committee of Council haa Ita hands full in an effort to clean up the town before the apting weather aeta In In earnest. Councilman Burke waa running around all day looking up people who are maintaining nuisances with a view to giving notice that a cleaning up must begin at once. Chief among the placea wbere the people aro tempting fat and disease, which terms are synonymous Is the small house on John Adama street, between Seventh snd Eighth, that la occupied by Greeka and Italians. There are three tlmea aa many oc cupying the few rooms of which thla house is composed aa should do ao. but that la not the worst feature of the case. All about tho house and. the yard la much half decayed matter and filth that only awalta a few warm daya to set up sn active cholera con dition that will beggar description. These people were given notice to clean lip. which they agreed to do. Councilman Burke aaya he proposes to see to It that they do. On Fourth street, near th,e Southern Pacific tracka, Is even a worse con dition than that found on the bill. Hero over thirty people are living in a small house, and filth and garbage la tying about In every direction one may look. As an evidence of the ahiftless ness and laziness that prevails It Is only necessary to say that to avoid labor these men had bored a hole In the floor aqd Instead of carrying out wa.ter and alopa they were permitted to run down through thla bole. From the odor arising It waa evident tht nature calls were a feature of the con venience. These people also a treed to olean up, and -when the dangers lurking about present conditions were ex plained to them the promise was most profuse Certain It Is that unless I something Is done quick the people of HOLE THROUGH FLOOR FOR DRAINAGE ;mar c,,,e1 V f,ght r Wnrrli la tha haatih nffloar at a aalary ao amall that it la scarce worthy of mention. The Doctor insists his salary must be 'Increased If he la to continue In that position. Require ments on his time make it Imperative for a raise or some one else can serve the city aa Ita health officer. In view of the fact that unless the Greeks and Italians do clean up it will be necessary for the city to do the work. In which case the city can charge the expense up against the property, it behooves the owners of property occupied by Greeka and Ital Una to see to It that matters are cleaned un within the next few weeks. The health committee of Council seems to be awake to conditions, and to what must be done to remedy con ditions. There la no need for an epidemic thla iprlng If reasonable care la taken to aeo to It that the common laws of hygiene are obeyed. With the spring rise In the river certain properties are overflowed, but thla may be made a blessing if tbo citizens will see to it that there la proper drainage later: notao-1f-the water-Is-allowed "to stand In poola and become filthy. The Greeks and Itallana are a men ace to the community unless they are comprtlW o live with due regard to the lawaof nature. When they are given to understand wbat they must do. and when they must do it, there la little fear from them. But whoev er ia tho city health officer It wants to be Impressed on him that It la to be his duty to see to it that these peo ple do aa he Bays, he having first told them Just what he wishes them to do.
