Eugene Drumm, formerly of
Honesdale, who for the past three
years has been In Now York Cltv.
Is engaged as an inspector of meters
and water consumption In the me
tropolis. He recently was engaged
in supervising a crusade against
leaning waste water and all unneces
sary use of water In the cltv. Mr.
Drumm, on tours of Inspection, has
encountered many humorous and In

Citizen representative Tuesday that
in tne lower tenement houses the
bathtub Is discarded altogether and
that the tub Is used as a bin for coal
and wood. In some bathrooms the
windows had been removed and the
place was used to house nlcreons.
Large tanks are used upon the roofs

In one Instance Mr. Drumm stated
that he and another Inspector heard

He uncovered the water-
pump, which was under a pile of de

when a four-legged ram appeared on
the scene and sent him against the
wall with terrific force. The much
frightened inspector, trembling In his
boots, barely escaped with his life
and it was a long time before he
would enter tenement cellars again.
The goats are used by ohlldren as
pets and the cellar serves as stable
for both the water-ram and pet ram.
Mr. Drumm states that there is a
great waste of water in New York.
An examination in the poorer tene
ment district showed that there was
a waste of 95 per cent., while in the
residential section It registered 30
per cent. These districts pay from
$7 per month to $8,000 per year
water rent. One of the largest ho
tels In the city consumes 562,500
gallons of water per day. In this
consumption Is included water for
ice machines, fountains, etc. The
water bill amounts to $75 per day.
Other hotels pay $500 per month.
The tour of Inspection was made
during the summer months by a
corps of 200 men. Mr. Drumm and
Vincent Kilroe, also of Wayne coun
ty, were tho supervising Inspectors.
Mr. Drumm secured his position
through the civil service. He was In
a class of 1,200 persons who took the
examination. Of this number 250
were successful In passing and Mr.
Drumm stood third on the list.
Honesdale Is always glad to hear of
the advancement and progresslveness
of its boys. The Citizen congratu
lates Messrs. Drumm and Kilroe up
on their success In life and sincerely
hopes that they will not stop until
they 'have reached the top of the
ladder of success.
