' Should Accept Proposition.
At a meeting of the city council t
Tuesday evening the A. O. U. W.
lodge presented a proposition to lease
the gronnd floor and part of the upper
floor of their proposed new building to
the city for fire department purposes.
The building will be 33x100 feet, and
for the ground floor and two large
rooms on the second floor a rental of
$75 per month is asked.
The Tribune favors accepting the
lease, not because it is made by the A.
O. U. W. the editor is not a member
of the order but because the time has
come, when some move must bo made
toward bettering in several ways our
fire department, which has, wo all
must admit, become somewhat disor
ganized. This disorganization comes through
lack of interest on the part of members,
and this lack of interest is due to the
lack of encouragement and appreciation
on the part of our citizens. The mem
bers realize the need of quarters for
the apparatus and rooms for their com
fort and convenience; and if such were
provided a wonderfully renewed inter
est nnd activity would result.
The proposition to vote bonds for a
city hall and fire department head
quarters was turned down; the next
best thing is to rent suitable quarters,
and the A. O U. W. building is the
The Tribune calls on our public
spirited citizens to boost this proposi
tion along and thus assist in recogniz
ing our fire department and making ' it
