A bout Our Fira Department.
There appears to be some dis-
H.itinf.'iction on the part of a num
ber of our cili.ens relative to the
manner in which the members of
tlie firejilepartment respond to the
alarm of lire. It was plainly ap
parent nt the IVrkiiis house fire a
few weeks since that n great many
of the boys failed to put in an
appearance, but the apathy and
indifference exhibited toward the
distill bance of Wednesday morning
is a fitting cap for this climax of
unconcern. We are informed by a
fireman in good standing that there
at 1 present belonging to the fire
department l.'fci members. After a
persistent ringing of the fire alarm
Wednesday morning there were, all
told, only eleven responses. We
are informed by one of the firemen
who was there, that, owing to the
limited number, they worked to a
rcat dihu lvautage, inasmuch as it
required the full force to handle
the two hose carts and the hook
and ladder outfit, which, in this
particular case, owing to the fact
that it was necessary to work upon
the roof, were especially needed,
could not be obtained.
It is highly important that only
such men be admitted to member
ship in the department that recog
nize and appreciate tlie responsi
bility that rest upon them. When
we remember that members arc ex
empted from paying poll tax, the
thought is suggested that probably
persons are actuated by a Hellish
motive, but we cannot believe that
men will so jeopardize the interests
of their neighbor by assuming tin
responsibility incurnsd bj iiiimii
b'-rs of the department simply foi
this paltry sum
In this connection we may state
that if the hose house were turned
that the entrance mitht face 11
south instead of the. east, access to
the house would be much easier
The council ordered this change
over a mouth ".nice, but owing to
somebody's unconcern the instruc
tions have been ignored.
We have dwelt somewhat nt
length upon this matter simply be
cause we believe that our firemen
have not done their duty in a few
instances and with the hope that
they will be stimulated to do better
service in the future, thus probably
saving valuable property and hav
ing the consciousness of having
performed their duty to the best of
