CITY COUNCIL OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS

with the erection of the new bath house, as I had been given to understand that quarters would be provided in this building for the

activities of the health department. I know of no other section of the city that needs the advantages to be derived from a system of public baths more than this section. One of the fundamental principles of hygiene and protection of the public health is personal cleanliness. The value of a bath house in protecting the public health and improving the general moral tone of the comunity is being daily demonstrated in the successful operation of existing bath houses in the city.

I sincerely trust that the most serious consideration will be given to the passage of this ordinance and that a bath house will be forth coming in this district at once.

September 21st, 1917. Honorable Members of the Council

of the City of Cleveland. Gentlemen:

In compliance with resolution No. 45282, requesting that the commissioner of engineering and construction prepare an approximate estimate of the cost of reconstructing main sewers and building local sewers, I beg to report as follows:

To make a detail report of the streets, upon which sewer construction is needed, or upon which new sewers are proposed, would involve 80 much work that it would be impractical to prepare statement within the time suggested in the resolution.

The records of this office and those of the council proceedings will show that sewer projects begun or outlined but not completed, would involve an expenditure of over one million dollars, and furthermore, that the projects involved in such estimated cost do not comprise all sewer construction required for the present needs of the city.

Recently annexed portions must be provided with sewer facilities at large initial expense, such sums being in addition to the amount above

estimated. Districts involved are areas formerly known as Nottingham, Euclid, Newburgh City, East View and South Brooklyn.

We know from past experience that the city has been called upon to spend annually from five hundred thousand to one million dollars for sewer construction. At the rate at which the city is growing and also by reason of the fact that the early sewers of the city, built thirty, to forty years ago, are either in bad physical condition, or else inadequate in size to properly provide for the service required of them, it is reasonable to expect that such expenditure must continue in order to keep up with the demand for sewerage facilities.

It would seem therefore that an amount of several million dollars could easily be spent to advantage within the next three to five years for sewer purposes.

It would be of great use to the department if financial provisions could be made for a sewer construction program extending over several years, in the same manner was recently done in connection with the paving of streets.

It seems poor economy to construct portion of an extensive main sewer, and then not be in position to complete the same by reason of want of funds, as the relief and service expected of such sewer is not furnished until the same is completed. Such a condition could be avoided if the department could be assured that funds would be provided for the completion of any sewer project in accordance with some properly aproved program. Respectfully submitted,

ROBERT HOFFMAN,
Commissioner and Chief Engineer.

September 24, 1917. The Council of the City of Cleveland. Gentlemen:

I learn that final consideration will be given this evening to the question of an appropriation for sixty-six thousand dollars to provide bath house and dispensary accommodations for ward 23.

I am interested in this proposition from the standpoint of the betterment of the health of the people living in this district. For several years past, owing to rapidly increasing population from 40th St. east along St. Clair ave., and as a result of congestion, over-crowding and poor housing, our problem to control contagious disease, reduce infant mortality, prevent tuberculosis has been an increasingly difficult one.

Last year in this ward there were 34 deaths from tuberculosis out of a total of 900 in the city, or 3 per cent of the total deaths. There were 106 new cases of tuberculosis reported, and there were 420 deaths from all causes, or 4 per cent of the total deaths.

We have established in this district a tuberculosis clinic as well as an infant welfare clinic and are making some headway. There is the keenest interest on the part of the people residing there in learning the

precautionary measures they should adopt in order to safeguard their health, and the infant clinic is one of the best attended in the city.

We have been looking forward to a concentration of our activities which we thought would be possible

File No. 45487.

September 24, 1917. To the Honorable Council of the City

of Cleveland, Ohio. Gentlemen:

I transmit herewith report of the commissioner of light and heat made in response to resolutions Nos. 45173, 45174 requesting information as to progress made in securing coal lands either by way of lease or purchase.

In this connection I feel that it is advisable to call your attention in a general way to the coal situation not only as it affects the operation of city departments but the public

well. It is apparent that the question of price and supply of coal for commercial and domestic use has not yet been satisfactorily adjusted. Considerable uncertainty exists in regard to the practicability of the government fixing a maximum price of coal for various grades effective during the period of war.

The problem of coal production and transportation under existing conditions has many perplexing phases as yet unsolved and unless early action is taken by the federal government in the matter it is probable that a severe shortage of coal will occur during the ensuing winter. While I hope such a satisfactory regulation may be consummated, I feel that people of the city of Cleveland and its public service departments should not place their entire dependence upon it.

It is therefore, my opinion that in the event of a failure by the government to satisfactorily adjust the price and delivery of coal at an early date the city of Cleveland should out of self-protection, purchase coal lands of sufficient area to provide not only for the needs of its own departments but also for public use in times of extreme need, It may never become necessary for the city to retail coal to the general public but the fact that it is in a position to do so would in itself be a great influence in preventing any company or individual engaged in the coal business from charging exorbitant rates or exacting unreasonable profits in selling coal to the people.

With this thought in mind the department of public utilities will continue its investigation of available coal lands and transmit to the mayor and council its final recommenda

tions at the proper time.

Very truly yours,
THOMAS S. FARRELL,
Director of Public Utilities,

September 12, 1917.
Mr. Thomas S. Farrell,

Director of Public Utilities. Dear Sir:

Relative to certain resolutions No. 43173 and 45174, regularly adopted by the city council, asking for report as to progress in connection with investigation as to the advisability of either the purchase or lease of coal lands or coal mines for the city beg to submit the following:

Appointment of Coal Expert Immediately upon the passage of these resolutions and a certain appropriation of $2,000 for investigation purposes the commissioner arranged with Mr. H. C. Nolds of the mining department of the State University at Columbus to act as expert, feeling that a party obtained from a public institution of this kind could not be classed as prejudiced in any manner.

Unfortunately, we have not been able to obtain the undivided time of this expert. However, a considerable number of investigations have been made by him and reports submitted, which are now available for observation

Proposals Received There have been filed upwards of one hundred proposals, both for coal and coal lands. At least 90 per cent of these were immediately eliminated, for the reason that they were a prohibitive distance from the city of Cleveland, or were

not located where unlimited water privileges would be available, all in view of the ultimate construction of a comprehensive power plant at the coal mine within 125 miles of the city, and a transmission line for the conveyance of electrical energy in very large quantities to the point of consumption.

Investigation of Properties A personal investigation of some of those properties was made by a party consisting of His Honor the Mayor, Director Neal, Director Farrel and Commissioner of Light and Heat and the expert above referred to; said trip extending through Ohio into West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania, by automobile.

The work of investigation is still going on; proposals are yet being received, and we are of the opinion that we are justified in a reasonable amount of caution in arriving upon the conclusion, due to the effect that the national agitation over the coal situation throughout the country has been intense. Government Establishes Arbitrary

Prices The federal government has established arbitrary prices far below those which have been in vogue during the last few months, and which have been absolutely prohibitive in character, but the final details of such prices, insofar as affecting the coal dealers and domestic consumers have not yet been arranged. Therefore, it is possible that the federal

government may modify the present established prices, to conform at least to a degree, with the classification of such prices, and based not only upon thickness of vein, but also upon the caloric value of the fuel, and possibly other physical conditions entering into the costs. Fuel Situation Unsatisfactory for

Some Time Past It is a fact that the fuel situation for public utilities have been most unsatisfactory during the past year. The division of light and heat has particularly suffered in this respect, inasmuch as the parties having the

contract for the coal supply for same declined last April to make further deliveries, and we have been since compelled to purchase in the open market at a very great increase in price over said contract, and inasmuch as coal is by far the largest item of cost for the generation of power, it has placed upon this division an unreasonable burden to carry. Requesting Relief from Council

National Defense Upon request of His Honor the Mayor, the Commissioner was compelled to proceed to Washington to appear before the council of national defence, through its fuel committee, and obtain relief insofar as deliveries were concerned. Such relief was immediately granted and our public utilities today have a definite priority over any other consumer or shipment of fuel in the city. Relief Granted will Improve our

Activities This situation, we believe, will very greatly improve our activities, but will not eliminate all danger of supply, owing to the possibility of labor troubles at the mine the obtaining of the necessary coal cars for the transportation and other matters, Government Regulation a Factor in

Lowering Property Prices The regulation of fuel prices by the federal government is also a very great factor in the modification of prices demanded for coal properties by their owners and a material reduction in such prices are already evidenced.

Further, we have been more intensely interested by force of circumstances, in the obtainance of sufficient fuel for the present and in a more comprehensive investigation of cual properties. Our expert, Mr. Nold, is still engaged upon a number of surveys, and the extreme importance of obtaining exactly the right kind of a location is pre-eminent, as it will probably affect the welfare of the municipality for half a century, and possibly more.

A number of proposals have been submitted for coal' lands and coal mines, which appear pending a more thorough investigation, to be particularly fitted for our requirements, not only as regards the comprehensive generation and distribution of electric power, but also the use of coal as fuel in public institutions, where same will always be required, and for outdoor relief and the relief of the general public in times of stress.

These are being placed on a classified list, and being examined as our expert becomes available.

The facts as above outlined, with particular emphasis upon possible action of regulation of fuel prices by the federal government

leaves the commissioner to believe that no haste should be taken in this matter. One important factor must be always borne in mind—that the city. in any possible acquirement of coal property must have the proper location, and it is a probable fact that the nest desirable properties in this respect will not be in the market for any great length of time and the commissioner in conclusion, desires once more to make the statement that if the city proposes to continue in the maintenance of a division of light and heat, it ultimately must obtain its raw product at the base of supply, where unlimited coal and water are always available.

Owing to prohibitive costs of raw material, the installation of such plant in the near future is not warranted, but must be considered when the epoch of reasonable prices again

obtain, and that his observations of the activities of this division while he has been in office, particularly in view of the emergency conditions which we have met in the last year, in the continual rise of prices for labor and materials, actuates him to repeat a statement made in a former report, to the effect that the selling price of the products of all public utilities should be based not upon any arbitrary slogan created by public sentiment, but upon the actual cost thereof, with a change in same from time to time, to conform to existing conditions, and without profit. Very truly yours,

W. E. DAVIS, Commissioner of Light and Heat.
