saved , piling up in the streets like
a blockade. They are talking of
locking the barn now and want a
chemical engine , a ho e tower t < j
drain and dry the ho-o and double
the water pivs uro and supply.
There are some buildings left in
Rushviile and it is proper to take
precautions ajraiii t Another fire.
Hud they agitated this matter be
fore the fire half or more of the
town would have bi-en against the
proposition for mure protection
against fire and would holler their
heads oli' about the increased burd
en of taxes. We don't think the
people are worse in Rushville
than in other touns but we're ex
pressing the customary view of
such matters and beliexe that it
applies to man.towns. . . Valentine
people have no better faciliiies for
lighting fiie than liushvi'le but
people here rely upon the stone
buildings for considerable fire pro
tection and think their superiority
precludes the possibility of a fire
of nny great extent. What could
we doith a fire in such a gale as
that of Monday night last week ?
Why , the firemen couldn't get
close enough to throw a stream of
water onto the bhizo or the smoke
without following up the fire from
the windward side with such pr's-
ure as Valentine n.iw his.
If we wait for a disastrous fire
to get ready to rebuild our water
system we'll have less fire to fight
then as our present system may
be sufficient for a small town It
was very good when Valentine
had only a few buildings but it is
growing old , the old water tank is
about to fall down or rot clown
and in such a cae we'd have a big
damage case on our hands if the
collapse should crush Capt. Shaw's
building under it or W. S. Bark
er's building to the north.
The water is also very bad in
the summer time , tasting of the
decayed wood and we're always
out of water while the tank is be
ing cleaned which never purii ( < s
the water very much and for two
or three days after cleaning or
disturbing the lank the water huts
a disagreeable smell and taste.
Of course , a change means ex
pense but can't we stand that ex
pense better with a whole skin
than to have the expense follow a
disastrous fire or the collapse of
the old water tank ?
-We want twin reservoirs es
tablished on the big hill north of
town built in the ground and ce
mented up , with a cover over the
top and pipes leading to the water
main from each reservoir so that
we'll have water from the one while
the other is being cleaned. With
such a natural advantage many
towns would have long ago made
use of it and we hope Valentine j
will get busy now , not next week
or next month or next year but
NOW. Immediately begin to talk
for the reservoir on the hill and
keep it up until we get it. Let' ? ,
have ifc big enough to supply the
city. Lt wont post any more than
a big cellar. We don't want any
contractor for this job. We want
a foreman of the woi k to oversee
the construction and employ home
men for every dollar's worth of
labor. Valentine people will have
the bill to pay and the money all
stays at home.
But we've got to get busy and
vote bonds to start the work.
How much do we want to vote or
spend and what amount of work
shall we undertake this year ?
Let's build the reservoir first
and connect up the water main.
That is the most important thing.
