cases in the city some m the vicinity of Petty Run I will have to again the bad condition of Petty Run I am receiving constant complaints from residents along the line of the stream There is no doubt that if the Council should have thoroughly cleaned irom the canal to the Delaware river it would at least relieve these citizens for a year It is earnestly to be hoped that will act soon in the matter

the matter in hand as this Board had no funds to prosecute but I understand that all they v ill do will be to pay for the analysis I have had quite a number of minor nuisances to abate which has been done without trouble In regard to the complaint touching Petty Run a brief discussion took place resulting in the adoption of a resolution that the Inspector be directed to every property owner on the run from Greene street to the canal to clean out his oi in The Inspector was to notify the Pennsylvania Railroad Company that the cars offal must be taken outside the city limits In the matter of the sale of oleomargarine a long discussion took place and various opinions were expressed It was finally disposed of by a motion that the matter be referred to the of the B ard for his opinion whether the Board is tribunal for enforcing the food law The recommendation of the Inspector re- garding vaccine matter was referred to the Common Council it being held by the Board that body is the proper
