A Terse Historical Sketch of Med Claud's Volunteer Fire Department. The editor of The Chief being somewhat familiar with the workings of firo departments and knowing that tho Red Cloud Fire Dopartmcnt ranks se cond to no department in the state in thovolunlecr service took it upon him self to corner two or three of tho old charter members and in conversation gleaned a few of tho following facts and figures: The department was organized as a Volunteer Firo Department for tho protection of lifo and proporty on tho second day of December 1887 on the evening of that date, 50 of tho men who had signed tho rolls as charter members met over tho Postoflleo which waa then located in tho build ing now occupied by Dacker & Co's Dry Goods House, and then and there adopted tho constitution and by-laws under which they havo been governed for the past five yours. To sluw that n Fireman's life is not a milk and honey life, out of tin HO lu-iiili.Tx on activi' list who ctiUTi'd livo with nio only ho ven wric left to miivo th'ir ex emption mi the evening of Dcrciiiln-r 2d, 1802. Since thu orjjinir.utioii of the drpirtmont Dec. 2d, JHS7 thcio has been nr.c-liundicd and citjhty-ono meiubi rs enrolled, and out of tho 181 who joined tho department during t lie past tivu )cara only 34 names am t till on tho Department books and of those only 2ft arc in good standing, and si veil of thoso are charter litem berk. Ah to thu lohs und datuago by Gro the estimates accoiding hi ad justment bhiiwu for the past five tears is $11)835 00. Insurance on same 1(18(35.00. Lcuving a loss over and above insurance of $2070 which no busiucFs man who is fninilinr with or has a rcmeiubcruicc a to tho locu tion of the tiros in thu putt ftvo ycurs will deny tho fact, that woto it, not for tho efficient s-rvico rendered at the fiics tho loss would litve been up ward of $40,000. Our soribu in look ing ov-r the fiuaucixl workings of the Department found u remarkable show ing for a volunteer organ zitiou. Tho receipts anddisburi-nicnts by the lifth annual rcttlometit were shown ti bo as fol'ows: Tola'. $5337 17 , total ex penscs $4574.47, leaving a balanco held by tho Department of 1703 of which $360 is in stock certificates of tho Rud Cloud Volunteor Fircuians Associati n $307.35 in uniforms, sup ply and extra apparatus and balance, tn cash $5.66. Which should tho de partment disband then would bo a orcdit to each of the 25 members by the inventory that shows the assets at $703, of $30.52 lor each. Now aside from this there U sumo thing of as much importance to out readers. On tho regular meeting of the department on tho first Monday in last Muy it was deoided that an aux iliary association bo organized to fur ther the interests of tho Rod Cloud Fire Department Chief A. J. Tomlin- son was authorized by tho Department to tako nocessary steps and put the samo into execution. He thoroupon selected from among the livo and sat- ivo members L. M, Vuuoe, J. O. But lor, Harry Sowtor, E. J. Pulsipher, W W Gilbert, and J. B. Can-, Henry Dicderiob, T. W. HutrloM, C. L. Winfrey, tho ten which in cludes Chief Tomlioson, at once drew up artloloi of incorporation which were filed according to law with the County Clerk and Secretary of state and thereby perfected what is known as tho Red Cloud Volunteer Fireman's Ass'n.
