TO EXPLAIN Headquarters of Municipal League to be Opened this Week and Maps and Figures Will Demonstrate, the Good Benefits. THE ENDORSEMENTS OF THE PLANS Tin - headquarters for the Municipal Lea - "' w .1 he opened in I In1 (ireena - walt building. 1IS - 1:.M Market street, within a l.ty or so ami there will be maps to illustrate the. improvements as well as hooks an.l pamphlets for all who may desire information concerning the groat works which it is hoped t.i undertake to make Ihirrisburg the mode! city. 'litis morning men were at work installing furniture in the offices and preparing them for use ly the ulieers and the committees. The large maps which will he used for the ilemonst ration of the improvements were put in place this afternoon. It as a significant - fa't. that the medical fraternity of Harrisbor.fr a.t, n revont meeting at. the Academy of Medicine unanitnously endorsed the improvements recommended by the Municipal League and to be v.ted for or against. ;it. the February elect ion. The physicians realize more than any other class of citizens the danger of poor sewerage and Typhoid fever jrerms iti polluted wa - 'er. It was therefore very fitting that the Academy of Medicine should lie the first body in the city to join hands with the Municipal League by unanimously endorsing its plans and deciding to cooperate, to .the fullest possible - extent toward carrying the matter at the polls and thus securing the improve - IMPROVEMENTS monts so vitally necessary.

Looking backwards for the past twenty - live years in 'tiie history of Ilarri. - burg, the city has reason To be proud of the improvements mode. The increase in population, however, lia - s been so rapid thait conditions that - were even adequate at. That time are no longer sucieut. The danger from the increased population has .also increased and it is more thru ever necessary that the water be f.i - Tered to remove the disease germs, el'nninn'te the objectionable culm and to roinme the sewage from the Fax - ton ( reck, which, at the present time, is a menace to the health of the city ami will be an increasing niiis'ance when the Pennsylvania Canal is abandoned. The present opportunity should stimula'tc civic pride and a - determined effort, iua.de to secure the improvements. Careful estimates made by the city authorities have demonstrated that it will cost but one - half per cen.t. per dtiy on each one thousand dollars assessed value of property, a sum so insignificant compared with ihe great return to be derived by the city that it should not be taken into consideration. l I i
