    Excerpt from Report of the Health Officer of the City and County of San Francisco: For the Fiscal Year Ending June 30th, 1877

    The introduction of the odorless excavator has entirely super seded the old bucket system for emptying privy vaults, which so outraged decency, conveyed through our streets the germs of dis ease and rendered the atmosphere almost intolerable with offen sive odors. The filling in of Mission Creek and its environs, which I hope to see completed within a few months, will have removed a long-existing, most disgraceful and intolerable source of discomfort and disease. I am happyto state, also, that prison labor is being utilized in removing that other intolerable and pestilential nuisance, Washerwoman's Bay, into which the sewer age of eighty blocks of the city is emptying itself without ade quate outlet. The reports of the sanitary inspectors will show that a very large number of nuisances have been removed or abated and that in no department of the city government is there so little expenditure for the accomplishment of so much good. Our next Legislature should confer on the Board of P ealth the power to increase this force. The city is rapidly increasing in population, and our present force (five inspectors, including Mar ket Inspector) is entirely insufficient. The same reasons make it necessary that we should have an assistant secretary in the Health Office. This is the only public office kept Open a part of every Sunday and holidays for the accommodation of the public. Besides, it is impossible for any one man, within reasonable hours, to perform the work required of the Secretary. When the law was enacted creating the present Board of Health the population was not much more than one-half of what it is at present. The duties of this department have not only increased with the population, but the growing interest manifested in san itary reform has imposed a large amount of work which it is probable was not at first anticipated.
