Sewer Ons and City Water.
The water question continues to agitate the
public mind , and several communications ro
gardinp it have been received at this ofllco.
The majority of thorn are ot nn Inquiring
tone , ono inquirer voicing the sentiments of
many In his anxiety to know "If tnoro Is
really anything in it. " Another of the com
munications Is herewith given !
To the Editor of TUB Bust An editor Is
supposed to know a llttlo mo roth an anybody
clso who don't know anything about it. So ,
Mr. Editor , will you please tell mo about
sewer gas i What is there moro fatal about
It than the tins that escapes from an ordinary
water closet m your garden I Will a trap
prevent the gas Invading your dwelling ! Is
there any danger from gas where water
only from your kitchen sink is carried
through a trapped pit to a deep vault ) Is
thcro uptofesRional sanitary engineer in this
city or in Omnbn who knows onu kind of gns
from another ! Who can prevent unhealthy
smells from Invading our dwellings 1
Is tlicro a chemist hero who can analyze
water , and ascertain its Impurities , and lot
the pconlo of Council Bluffs know whai kind
of water they are drinking , and bow It dif
fers from what was furnished by the water
company six mouths ugol
If the water company do not afford us
pure water , and c.xnnot adore1 to do it , and
aeny that its water Is impure , let the city
council ut once apuolut a committee of scion-
till c men to examine the methods now In use
to supply us with water , as well as tbo char-
uctor of the water so supplied. No time is
to bo lost in the matter. Six mouths ago'wo
hud the best water of any city in the world ,
and thcro is no good reason why wo should
not have it now. In conclusion lot mo say ,
wo should either have pure whisky or pure
Tbo writer of the above is evidently ono
of the many citizens who have been consid
erably agitated during tbo past few weeks
by the report that the waterworks company
was not furnishing ns pure water as might
he expected , and that tlio company was
rather Indifferent as to the condition of the
settling Imsin nt the foot of Broadway.
Nnumorous inquiries similar to the above
have been made of late , nnd the result
of careful investigation Is herewith given.
The subject of sewer gas Is one concerning
which much has been written , still its insidi
ous properties are seemingly but little under
stood. The general public understands that
it smells disagreeable and is unhealthy , tend
ing to disease and epidemics. Thcro is also
a prevailing idea among property owners
that traps should bo provided in all snwor
plues to prevent the gas backing up from the
sewers to tlio houses with which tney uro
connected. However , this matter is very
generally left to the plumbers , nnd with
them rests a largo degree of responsibility.
With this very scant kaowlodgs on the sub
ject , tlio public evinces n disposition to bo
perfectly satisfied , and in the majority of
cases no further investigation is made until
nn outbreak of typhoid fever or kindred dis
eases calls attention to the fact
that something is wrong , when the
'malarial atmosphere1' ' Is llnully decided
upon us the source of the trouble , and again
the mutter Is dropped. Sowar KIIS Is con
stantly given off from the thousand and ono
foul matters' and impurities that find their
way into that , public drain , the city sower.
As a as it is explosive , clearly showing this
property when allowed no.chunce of escape ,
and compelled to back up to the higher portions
tions of the sewer. Under these circum
stances It is forced back through the water
in thosower traps , which , nt such times , nro
obviously Inadequate to the tusk allotted
thorn. In view of this , thcro are hundreds of
sanitary engineers who maintain that a sewer
er trap alone is not sufficient protection
agninst the encroachments of sewer gns.
They advise the placing of a vertical plpo ,
running abova the roof ot the building , which
will convey thu cos from the sewer beyond
tlio reach of the resident , the sewer trap pre
venting tbo escupo into the rooms.
By weans of this escape plpo the danger of
explosion Is obviated , and all possibility of
the gas backing into the bouse is done away
A physician was asked concerning the pe
culiarly fatul properties of this gas , and his
opinion was expressed as follows : "Tho
disease most commonly produced by sewer
gas is typhoid fever , and this disease is
spread moro widely by this means than by
any other. For this reason the sewers should
be especially guarded against during an epi
demic. The typhoid germ Is very minute ,
and is carried into the sewer by the water.
It is so small that , our best authorities assert
tliat it rises with the sewer gas , und thus
spreads the discaso most alarmingly. Aside
from this , I don't know us sewer gas is par
ticularly fatal , that Is , anv more so than any
other. Cases of asphyxiation by it are re
ported occasionally , but they uro not com
Tnere are several professional sanitary en
gineers In this city nnd Omaha , who give
these matters particular attention. First
class analytical chemists are not numerous
in this part of tho/iountry. A. Martin Muller -
ler A. A. , professor of chemistry at the
Omaha medical college , Is recommended by
thu medical profosslon ns a skilled analyst.
In discussing tbo question of impure water ,
the physician above quoted remarked : "I
don't bee how It can bo that our city water is
BO very impure or unlit for use. There is
very llttlo sickness in the city , in fact , I have
newer found It so ecncrally healthy during
mv residence of seven years In the Bluffs.
It can not tie that there Is anything so very
serious Just at present , though there may bo
some few Impurities in the water. You must
know that it does not take very long for
anything of this kind to show itself in tno
city. There may bo a llttlo truth In the re
port , but I think thut good , lively imagina
tion has helped it along considerably. If
quite a number unlto in telling a man thut ho
is sick , ho begins to believe It , and my belie
is that the same Is true m this case , "

The burglars have again commenced oper
ations after a vacation of u few weeks , and
start out this time with two Jobs to their
credit within twenty-four hours. Thursday
afternoon they visited the residence ot A. J.
Stoddard , 015 Seventh nvcnuo , nnd secured
considerable booty. There was no ono at
homo except a servant named Lllllo Part-
rldgo. She was upstairs , arranging her
toilet. She heard a noise , nod on looking
down the stairway saw a stranger climbing
Into tbo window. She was so frightened she
did not utter a sound. The stranger carried
awavsomo jewelry and the contents of a
child's bank , bosldcs several valuable orna
ments. Immediately after his departure the
girl raised tbo alarm , A search was made
for the party but ho had made his esoapo.
Thn preceding night they visited the house
of F. Ogden , on Fairvlow avonuo. It Is sun-
posed that entrance was affected through
ono ot thubasotnont windows. All the family
were at homo , but strange to say the
marauders fulled to awaken them , and the
first Intimation the pcoplo had that the liouso
wan burglarized was yesterday morning ,
when they awoke and found that everything
had boon turned upside down in nil of the
rooms but ono. A watch , rovolvoi and dirk
nro among the missing articles. The thieves
also took a lot of men's clothing out Into the
hall whcro the clcctrio light would bhlno on
thorn , and picked out what suited tholr fas
tidious tastes , leaving the rest. Whether
this is all the booty that was secured can not
bo told positively yet , as the whole house
was moro or less ransacked.

"I notice that the papers nro getting the
pcoplo stirred up about water , " remarked
ono of the representatives of the waterworks
company. "I don't see ns the water is any
more roily than it has boon in times past.
Every now and again there is apt to bo a
llttlo trouble. Just now the river is ex
tremely low , and. ns you know , there Is a big
amount of water used at this time of year.
Of course there isn't tbo chance to get clear
water that there I * in tbo winter. A good
deal of this grumbling , though , comes from
personal spite , Noxv , all this talk about the
pond is wrong. The water comes from the
river , and is as good as any Missouri water
can bo. It's all bosh about its being un
healthy water. There Is epidemic hero , is
there ) St. Louis pcoplo are pretty healthy.
In fact all who drink Missouri river water
live about as * long us other people. There
can not any surface water run Into the con
duit or the pond nt the river , unless it runs
up hill. Then there's a hank 'around the
sides to keep It from running In. The talk
about cattle Is equally nonsensical. There's a
burbod wire fcnco runtime all around it , so
that cattle can't get to It. Anybody can sco
for themselves that tbo water supply of
Council Bluffis all right , if they will only
look for themselves. Instead of listening to
every complaint nnd believing all sorts of
stories. It's too Important a matter to bo
treated carelessly , nnd It is bad to got folks
alarmed when thcro is no occasion for it.
Let folks investigate for themselves , and
they will bo satisfied. "

In the county jail yesterday afternoon was
a mlddle-agod man named Ed Gannon , who
appears to have lost bis wind through re
ligious excitement. All the afternoon ho
paced the corridor of the jail with bis right
hand raised above his head , and in a loud
tone repeating over and over again these
words ; "With the help of God , I am the
son of God , I am not of this earth. I came
down from above and. shed my blood to save
sinners , In tbo name of the Father , Son and
Holy Ghost. Amen 1" A number of persons
tried to ascertain from bun some knowledge
concerning himself or tbo whereabouts of bis
friends , but to all queries ho responded , "With
thn help of God , I am thn son of G'.d , " etc. Tbo
unfortunate fellow attended the meetings of
tbo Salvation army during the early part of
tbo summer , until ho was taken sick and was
removed to the Sisters' hospital. Ho was
discharged from the hospital a short time
ago und went to work in ono of the livery
stables of the city. Ho acted u llttlo "flighty"
at times , but it was not until yesterday that
ho became thoroughly daft. Ho will be
taken before the Insane commissioners to
day , and unless there is a change in his con
dition In a short time ho will likely bo sent
to the insane asylum at Clarinda.
Ho worked for some time for Dr. C , H.
Plnnoy , who treated him on several occasions
for his insanity , but the relief experienced
was only temporary. Tlio insane commis
sioners have thus fur refused to adjudge
him insane , but his condition is now so much
worse that ho can hardly bo kept out of tbo
asylum any longer.
