the. .death rate has decreased, the
number of cases of illness from pre
ventable diseases diminished. . To
a great extent, the above may be
due to the fact that the year 19H4
was an unusually healthy one in this
section, but it was partly due to local
health work. The Mayor and Board
of Aldermen have shown great in
terest in sanitary work, and have
assisted the local health authorities
in every possible way. Their zeal
is to be commended.
During the past year preliminary
work was done for the drainage of
the west end of the city, that is Rich
ardson Pond, and Duffy's Field. This
in my opinion wilt be the most bene-
fioial sanitary worky ever done in
the eitv. For it will ddstrov the sreat
UMWcdittgiPlaftaa foa.,iinfcmaiani, tea-.
iiig" mosquitoes; The drainage of this
district should diminish to a marked
degree-, the amount- of malarial in
the city and it is iinbossible to esti
mate the great benefit td be derived
While the health of New Bern com
pares ..with other towns of its size in
the . state, there are a number of
munioipal sanitary improvements that
are necessary, and in my opinion,
1. A new sewerage system. The
present system is inadequate, the
city has outgrown it, and the health
of tW community demands a new
sanitary , system. In the . present
system, the pipes are, too small thqy
are overtaxed, there is frequent block
age ' with .resulting backing up in
the pipes, frequent . bursting and
leakage. The present system should
be inspected by a sanitary engineer
2. Abattoir. A modern abattoir
should be erected, and - all nieatsofd
in theuPity, other-than that bearing
the Federal stamp ' of , inspection
should; be requirred to be' butchered
there, and inspected.. It is impossible
to- properly inspect -meat unless it
is done at - the place of butchering,
and without an abattoir, it is impossi
ble for a meat inspector to-be effi
cient., j - v " - ' '" ";"
3. Public- Market; This too is a
great necessity. For the past two
years-, I have endeavored to obtain
this. . ' Forionly- by having a public
market under munioipal control1 can
the'ordinanees governing the markets
be enforoed. New Bern is badly in
need of a public market
' 4. Water Supply,-- During the past
few years, ' bsrithe - city -r has jgrowta.
the municipal supply has not been sa
isfactory. .There has been a short-;
age, recently one-of the pumps in
the power house has been -lowered,'
giving an increased supplyv and "ifh.
tne lowering or tne otter pump an
adequate supply may be obtained for
sometime. ' v J-v 'i, ''
If an' adequate" "sdpply cannot be
obtained by lowering these pumps
the city should do one of two things:
Purchase a tract of land but of the
city's limits and there bore wells, or
obtain a filtered supply from some
stream. Wells from which r inuni-

In addition to the enterprises above
listed there are several others n the
chrysillis state among which are a
cotton mill for which J .8. Miller and
others have secured subscriptions
amounting to more than forty thousr
and dollars. A company at Little
ton, N. C, also desired to locate and
operate a mill (hoisery) providing
the citizens would take a certain
amount of stock. Their offer was
made just at the time the European
war depression began and for the
time being the matter was allowed
to drop but we believe-that the pro
position will be taken up later on.
The New Industries Committee
have : devoted their exerted efforts
to securing the industries mentioned
above and have expended much
time in endeavoring to secure others
and in fact have performed their
work to their best ability.

The Stock Law.
C. E. Foy, one; of the leading mem
bers of the bTganitation; stated that
ha thought that ' the Chamber of
Commerce should, endorse the State
wide stock law. This matter was free'
ly discussed by a number of the mem
bers, among whom were U. N. Ives,
W. . C. WUlett. J. B. Blades, L. O
Daniels land L. I.. Moore. These
gentlemen were in favor of M., Fqy'i
suggestion and oiteo instances to show
that it .was just the thing needed.
At the conclusion Mr. Foy presented
the following -resolution which, .was
unanimously adopted: -

chosen to carry this resolution before
the Legislature and ask that body
to take action.
In connection with the report of
Dr. J. F. Patterson, Mr. Stallings of
the firm of Stallings Brothers, plum
bers, made a talk before the Chamber
of Commerce, in which he stated that
the cause 'for so much bad plumbing
around New Bern was that there was
no inspector here to look over the
work done and that, knowing this,
the plumbers agreed to do work a
low prices and did it in a slip-shod
manner, He suggested-that the city
employ a plumbing inspector and lay
down vrules which the plumbers be
foreed to carry out. Following Mr
Stallings.' remarks, T. C. Battle made
a motion that a committee be ap
