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
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.
