NOTICE TO Subscribers who carefully watched ov'jor for riod of eight or ton years, and 'ac- curate reports have made cov- ering cost of plant, the cost of its operating and the expense oi repairs and fixed charges. By this moans any one com get a very clear idea of the advantages to be derived from this form of destructor when employed by tho municipal service. tho exact converse is true in America. For more than twenty years the United States have been building garbage crematories and in- cinerators of, one and another type and have installed more thau two hundred in all parts of the country Of these more than one-half have been abandoned and discontinued, and to day the number that. goes out oi se vice 'annually far greater than thr eveloped without' Uw oj! any fuel.

Unfortunately the way in which these furnaces aro built cannot bo groutly changed without a radical departure from all the pre sent plans.' Tho result is that the American towns are driven'to accept crematories and incinerators whose records in the past have been exceed- ingly unfortunate or they must seek for a form of, furnace which will do the work better und can be relied up- on to furnish some asset in return or the money expended.

DISPOSAL OF GARBAGE The disposal of garbage in this an important matter and will become more so as .the years move along. We might as well take it up seriously so that we will a clean and healthy city. The investment in. an incinerator-is the only solution of the problem. The class of incinerator best suited ing over the former method of .haul- ing of to 000. plied This same method can. be ap in. anv town where the power for the city is a matter for investi- gation on the part of the city. The city of St. Thomas in Ontario has a proposition beforo it jxist now from the Meldruin Destructor Co., and it is claimed that their inciner- ator is revenue producing. If that claim is Is worth while for the city to get into touch with these can. be utilized, either for the munici- pality or for private business pur- poses. "Given a place of, say, peo- ple under ordinary conditions where the amount of refuse daily collected would be equivalent to thirty or or even '.forty and fifty tons per day, the installation of the Meldrum three grate dostmctor, having a capacity of fifty to sixty tons daily will take care of all the refuse of the town. (The installation can be placed in con- junction with any electric lighting station, any sewage or water pump- ing station, or at any point where the power can bq most usefully em- ployed. Since 'the operation is people and ascertain the merits of their system. ,The St. Thomas Journal publishes a statement made by the Meldrum people as to what tnelr incinerator claims to do. Below we give the argument put up for this destructor: "The ileldrum Destructor Company of Manchester, Eug., has installed more than one hundred plants in va- rious parts of the world for the dis- posal of the municipal waste by fire. These installations are of various ca- pacities from twenty ,to six hundred tons per day, and, in. every cose are operated by the destruction of the material itself without other fuel. "The combustion of municipal waste under these conditions with this Meldrum apparatus produces power in the proportion of the evap- oration from three-quarters to three pounds of water for each per-pound of refuse destroyed. The steam pow cr derived from this work is "pplic-: to municipal or private purposes in many different ways. In Great Bri tain where the greatest number o destructors are used, and where, ir fact it is the only method for getting rid of municipal waste, the power 5 employed by the municipalities as a auxiliary for electric lighting statto -in the sewage or water pumping sta tion, for the manufacture of tho din ker from the destructor into slab and tiles for municipal use, various other purposes which are un der this control, of nyth Every one of the installations in Great Britain arc the property of the town.

"The cost of such an installation would vary from to ccording as the local conditions will emand. Power produced from the Combustion, of, say fifty tons per daj would bc equivalent to 200 h. p. of team and a return, in cosh of not ess than in value. The town ould" be enabled to dispose of al ts refuse, and at the same time get a rebate in the value of the power ng illustration of ,the change which ias taken place in the. attitude toward Great Britain. At the clofce of the- South -African war a number of Boer families "refused-to remain under the British 'flag; and emigrated to German 'and Portugese territory. It did not take long however for them to find out that the German yoke and the Portugese yoke were somewhat heavier even, than- the Bri- tish, and many were glad to come back under "the folds of" the Union Jack. Those whV'reniained in Por- tugese territory found themselves in a peculiar difficulty. The Boer' had no as he had seen'it, but slavery_as it existed un- der the Portugese flag refused .to countenance, and now General Mou- bert-Picnaar is trying to secure the assistance of the United States gov- ernment in an effort; to-abolish the slavery that exists_ in_ Portugese Af- rica..' -The Boer-opposition .-to slav- ry awakened the resentinent of the 'ortugcsc, ahri General Joubert-Pien- has appealed to the British gov- "cmmont to protect some members of lis family on' Portu- Sir.
