Manager of Ohio Company
Gives. Health Board Val
liable Information; !
- With the advent In the city of T. K.
Rhlnes. general manager of the Dixon
Engineering sc Construction company,
of Toledo, Ohio, the health board was
yesterday given some valuable Informa
tion concerning garbage crematories.
Khlnes Is agent for one of the largest
arbare crematorium establishments In
the United Stales and one which, he
says, has Installed over half of . ths
burning planta In this country.
' For some time' there has been i
search Into the English garbage burning
system, but arguments made by , the
loiecro man tms morning causea a son
of revulsion of feeling on the part of
some members Pf the health board-' la
his statements he was backed up by
references to reports of garbage experts
Of International reputation.-.
- "Before you . buy an English plant,"
said Mr. Rhlnes, 'it will stand you in
hand to Investigate Closely into tne af
ferent conditions In the two countries.
Kngllsh refuse Is made up In a large
fortion of ashes. Of ths total refuss
n an Kngllsh city, statisticians tell us,
not more than II per cent Is garbage.
By garbage we mean the food refuse
from the markets, hotels and resi
' "Kngllsh 'plants are constructed : to
care for refuse under these conditions.
Here In Portland the percentage of
garbage Is from tiff to SO per cent. In
other words there will be nearly nine
times as much garbage, containing a
Urge amount of water, than other rub
blab. It Is patent that these great dif
ferences In the character of the refuse
to be burned will make a difference In
the construction of the plant.
- "It would be Impossible for sn Eng
lish plant to operate in Portland with
out extra fuel, and an auxiliary grate.
The English t ls, all right in Its own
field snd Is -probably the beat plant
for that purpose constructed.
"A 4 00-ton - .mant will coat approx.
Imstely 176.000 fully equipped.' 1 ad
vise the building of a fireproof building
for vou do, not want to have the ex
perience Los Angeles did, when ths
wooden structure there burned to the
ground after a month of service. Now
they have a fireproof ' building. We
guarantee the crematory we manufac
ture to burn odorless, leaving no organic
matter In the ash. W,ltb proper hand
ling you can get the operating cost
down to cents a ton. These, of
course, are under favorable conditions.
Where there is a greater amount of
water to consume the cost , will be
greater, probably double. .
The board will probably take up the
garbage matter at Its- next meeting
