F: Jackson MM the only affirmative vote for bla resolution instructing the city attor ney to take atepe to cancel the contract with the City Sanitary Reduction Com pany. "1 hare done my part aa commissioner of public health," said Dr. Jackson after Ills resolution had been voted down. "The responsibility for the health of the city ow rests with the council, If we have ' aa epidemic of typhoid fever or spinal maningltls aa the result of the insanitary eoadl tlona, the council will have to bear the burden of criticism." "I think that we are big enough to assume it." said Mayor Davie. Discussion of the situation began with the report of City Clerk U W. Cummlnca. who had personally Investigated four com- plaints of Inadequate service. He report d that he had found seventeen barrels of refuse accumulated at the plant of the National Pharmacy Company, Seventeenth and Wood streets. At the Western Laboratories, Twenty-fourth and Broadway where the scavengers were wont to make dally calls, he found that calls bad been made only four times since the first of the mcftth. The management of the Hotel Oakland, be said, complained because tb garbage collections were made during the lunch hour "with undue enthusi asm on the part of the collectors." COMPLAINTS CONTINUE. Dr. Klrby Smith reported that there had beea no amelioration in the situation. Two hundred and eight complaints had come to his office yesterday afternoon and this morning. His report was supplemented by one from City Veterinarian Charles C. Whig, who said that accumulation of garbage at a certain creamery In the city waa a very seYlous menace) to the health of the pat roue' of that firm. Dr. Jackson then introduced his resolution, saying: "No member of this eouncQ ran be criticised for not giving thla com-pany plenty of time to fulfill their contract. There is no reason why we should uphold them further in their pursuit of making money at the expense of the health of the city. We have given them everjconalderation." and have overlooked 'their 'Violations of ordinances regulating their vehicles In order not tr embarrass them." ' is ' "Why do ail the complaints and all the correspondence on thla subject come dl- rect to the councllT" asked Commissioner W. H. Edwsrds. "There Is no record that the health department had corresponded with the company. That Is no way to do business." HAS HELPED. Dr. Klrby Smith answered thla In person. "I have been In dally communication with members of the company," ha said, "and I wish to place it on record that I have personally dona all I could to help them get the altuatlon In hand." "You .told me last Saturday at tha 'head f 4 he e airs out there that the company was doing excellently," aald Mayor . Davie. "You said, that If they kept on aa they were doing they would soon have everything working- smoothly." "Either my eara were poor In hearing your question, or your ears were poor In bearing my reply." retorted Dr. Smith. ; The vote was then taken on the resolu tion of .Commissioner Jackson, who was the only one to support It.

F T Good food la going to waste on tha California sea coast simply because the people have not learned to use it, according to the announcement made by the State Council of De(ense Even sharks are edible, and are con sidered delicious by some foreign- born American citizens. The council points out the fact that the piers and rocks along the coast are covered with swarms of mussels, which are easy to harvest and are delicious when stewed.' The -council claims that If properly- baked mussels are more toothsome than clams or oysters. The University of California has pointed out that it la the meat supply that is the nation's food problem, and urges that the people should stop thinking of flsH as something to be eaten, on Friday only. Salting, drying, canning and smoking of fish represent an Industry only In Its Infancy in California. A multitude of types of fiah now not recognized aa good food will be proved by proper methods lrt;-canning, to be an excellent source of food. The council further points out that in spite of the "clean plate" cam-pain, there Is still good food going into the garbage can from most American homes. To keep a 'few chickens, even if only three or four, that these table scraps may be transmuted into egtra and chicken meat I has been - recommended by the De- leuao ufuueu. . A tiny enclosure is all that la necessary, and W. F. Loyd, instructor In poultry husbandry in the University of California, states that two ounces of grain and one ounce of dry mash per hen are sufficient dally ration for such a flock, and that the grain feed can be replaced with table scraps. ' The advice of the council is not to try to keep too many chickens. The family that starts with from three to six will be more lirly to make a success of the undertaking than if it starts with more.

Warren,! whose family live in San Jose, has tendered his resignation to the ', Postmaster General, rather than be the Junior city postoftice Inspector with W. I. Madeira his senior, -according to word from Washington. Warren, who JSa one -of the oldest Inspectors, in time of service in the West, tiled charges several years ago against Postoffice Inspector in Charge Leonard, alleging that Leonard favored Inspector Madeira' and practiced discrimination against him. Inspectors who were sent from the Hast to Investigate the charges reported they were without foundation. Warren was then transferred to the Denver division, with headquarters at Salt Lake City, Later he is said to have applied to be returned to this coaat. . He w gtvenr orders to report here as one of th two inspectors assigned to the city of Ban Francisco. Madeira 'bad occupied the other place for the past year, and for this reason Warren would be his Junior. About the time Warren was to assume his duties he delayed doing so, again preferring charges, claiming that Madeira had instigated stories that he waa to have an inferior position. Warren's contention" were again investigated and reported unfounded and his resignation is said .to have followed.

"To recruit, examine and swear in 40 men in -one day is unprecedented in national guard history in this state." said Chief of Police Walter J. Petersen, who win command the new battery. But men who have been drafted do. not Jook with favor upon being placed without choice In any department. The men who are coming Into B Battery are men who have chosen tho field artillery as the most desirable branch of the military service and are not taking any chances on being ordered Into any other branch.
