p.1 Do Not Dump Into The Lake - Dr. Fee, medical health officer, has instructed the city commissioner to see that the filth and dirt from steamers and vessels here is not put into the harbor. In the past refuse from vessels has been swept into the harbor, and the practice is contrary to law. The harbor master will be asked to investigate this matter. The doctor says he will prosecute all offenders.
