Against the Portable Crematory.
The Finance committee of the City Council, to which was referred the order providing for another perambulating garbage crematory, yesterday inspected the one now in use. Ald. Madden says the committee is united in the decision to have no more built. The Commissioner of Health was authorized by the committee to advertise for ten days for propositions for the construction of stationary crematories, bidders being asked to set their price for the crematory, at what price it would be sold to the city, and at what price garbage would be burned if the device is not sold.
