to be: a debatable question as to
whether the city would be actually
benefitted by having a sewer sys-
tem.. In the first place it is con-
tended vi:les; properly construct-
ed and attended to -xrith the great-
est care a sewer .system may be-
come a source of great danger to
the public health. There is no

Agaia even though the city
should be provided with a system
of sewers it would be out of the
nKrinn for the thousands of
Jacales irlich as yet form the great
er part of the homes of Browns

expense of putting in the necessaiy

b orne by a comparatively few house
holders- There would probably be
much less than a hundred house
in Brownsville that could or would
be connected with the sewers should

so-provided would enjoy great con
uenience and comfort in havinp
them it is true but the questioi
is -would the end justify the im
mense expense to the taxpayer
which such an improvement would
entail? And would the public
Bealth be benefitted thereby?
What the city most emphat
reallv need Is a thorough system
of surface drainage. If it were not
for the dry -weather and high wind
which usuallv prevail here there
would probably be much more sick-
ness than there is. As it is
Brownsville is really a very health
ful place tco much so to suit the
medical fraternitv. But should we
have a long rainy season with our
present absolute lack of drainage
there would undoubtedly be a
great deal of sickness. With its
close proximity to the river it
should be a comparalively easy
matter to drain the town" and the
city fathers should turn their
attention to the subject as soon as
the funds of the city will permit j
such a work to be undertaken.
