DEATH OP W. M. DEUTSCH.
On Friday the 22nd instant William Millar Deutsch died suddenly in the Park Avenue hotel, Manhattan, New York. The deceased was well known to a great many people connected with the waterworks interests of the country. Beginning with the Hyatt Filtration company, the original firm that instituted mechanical filtration in this country, he later on joined the Continental Filter company, and afterwards was with the New York Continental Jewell Filtration company. About ten years ago he went into the filter business on his own account and had adopted a system called the “Federal system” of filtration. Up to the time of his sudden taking-off he seemed to obtain a fair share of the mercantile and municipal business of the country. Mr. Deutsch was a well-informed man in his line, an earnest advocate and to a considerable extent a reliable and conscientious worker in the field of mechanical filtration. He had several patents on filter appliances and had designed many filtration plants during the time he had been in business on his own account. He has written several pamphlets on the purification of water and w’as well known to the members of the American Water Works association, as he has been called upon many times at its annual conventions to answer questions relating to filtration. His remains were buried from his late residence, Elizabeth, N. J. on Sunday last. Mr. Deutsch leaves a wife, son and daughter to mourn his loss.
