demonstrated the fact that there is
something radically wrong with the
management of the water works. Five
minutes, the most valuable In the
work of lighting a lire, being the live
minutes when It is llrst gaining head

men were on hand promptly and, had
water been obtuli -ible, could easily
have saved tho larg part of the prop

true, It is certainly to lw deplored and
the fact should bo deserving of Im
