Notes:
Chicago Health Commissioner George B. Young is taking North Shore villages and cities to court to stop them from dumping sewage into Lake Michigan. According to Dr. Young the sewage makes lake water dangerous for consumption. The act under which he intends to restrain the cities and villages from polluting was originally introduced by Congressman James R. Mann and was passed three years ago. Suits for the abatement of nuisances are civil, not criminal. Evanston Health Commissioner S. Victor Balderston doesn't think the Federal government has the power to stop the dumping of sewage.
