of Omaha , having been hero twenty-two
years. As his business grow in proportions
tions hero ho started branch stores. The
first ouo was at Cboyonnc ,
and | n March , 1830 , ho opened
one at Huron , Dak. Everybody sup
posed that Polack was doing a moneymaking -
making business , and Ins downfall was
tiuiroloro a great surprise.
Tliu first public information of the fall-
tire was made when his Farnam street

Thurston & Hall , attorneys of tliu
Mr. I'oluck was interviewed by a HIK
reporter last evening und made the fol
lowing statement of facts :
"I have had no trouble in Omaha , but
they jumped on mo at Huron , Dak ,
Of course I know that this thing
was coming on , and I have done all that
I could to hold it oil' . In the first placu
I secured all. of my confidential money
by putting it in luy stock hero and in
Huron. 1 lie store that I had an interest
in at Cheyenne I sold a few days ago tc
my partner , 1. ( Jreontreo , and the store
is Htill open and will pay all liabilities. "

The marvels of electricity and steam
are no where more visible than in the
changes wrought in tlio lire department
systems throughout the world. To the

the old volunteer llreman for ho has sur
vived the necessity of his use and pro
gress would have to recede lustead of
advancing could the day of his prowess
and valor bo recalled. Ho will long live
in the grateful memory of posterity for
his bravery was heroism , and his life and
limb wcro ever risked in tlio safety of
his follow citizen's property and person
without ono thought of anticipated re
ward. ' He is growing old now , Is the old
lire laddie , and time has stolen trom him
his supple vigor of limb and muscle of
old , but for allthat his lire is not con
sumed , but rekindled into llame us bright
as the polished brass on the old machine
when memories of his red-shirted days of
glory are recalled. Ho forgets his rheu
matic pangs , reminders of long forgotten
colds contracted from over-heated lire
races , and spins with vim his yarn of the
days when the No. 1 and the Dig U met
on the level , neck to neck and the rival
companies , with every energy bent and
every muscle strained to its utmost , sped
on like the wind with but ono ambition
in the world , to bo the first to reach the
beckoning llames. Ho will point you to
the old trumpet hung upon the wall like
the warrior's sword , and regard it with
pride , for through it ho otton yelled the
cheering cry that led to victory , "jump
her ; jump her , jump her down. "

moth serpent's dying pain , proclaims
that the llanio is spent and dead. And
so quietly lias the whole work been ac
complished that the neighbors a few
blocks off will only know of the occurrence -
renco when they read it in the morning's
paper. Contrast this perfection with the

"Tho Pioneer Hook and Ladder , " was
founded upon necessity and effected by
its charter January 17,1801. The forma
tion of other companies followed am !
their efforts in the protection of mop
erty are matters of history , redounding
in their credit , for bravery and solf-sac-
rilico. Still as viewed in tlio light of to
day's events , tlio old volunteer depart
nient was a crude affair.and that Omaha ,
which was then a wooden city , was
not consumed entirely by the visita'

ability of tlio firemen to cope with it
Thoe'lVortsof other cities in the porfectioi
of their lire systems and the institutioi
of paid departments of professional lire

mastery of llamos , led the. Omaha pe <
pie to adopt a similar organization. A

As existing to-day the lire dopartmor
of Omaha comprises six companies , nun
bored from ono to six , exclusive of tw
hook and ladder companies. With tli
exception of the two latter coiupanu
and the chemical engine , the apparati
in use is exclusively hosu carts. Thei
are thri'o steamers standing in as man
engine houses , but barred from activil
from the absence of any connection wit
them of hteam retorts , which would ii
sure tluiir immediate need if called inl
use. Jt is claimed that steam * can be gei
crated from cold water in them by meat
of lire alone in tlireu and a half minute
sufficient to throw a stream , but ailini
ting this fact as possible , it can scarce !
bo supposed that the stream thus pn
duccU would be capable in force to r
work on the high buildings throng ;
out the city. The water power supplii
by the reservoir is alone used , and i
course this pressure ) must diminish wlu
distributed to additional pings , which tl
city's incro'iso will demand. These ei
gines , capable of such prompt and pov
erful action , are a sad sight standii
neglected and alone , particularly aft
costing the eity so much for their pu
chaso. The lir.it steamer , known as tl
"Hlack Maria , " was sold to a junk deal
for $ ! ! ! > , and unless the threp ongin
standing idle are converted into u > o
may bo presumed they will follow tl
junk dealer's route , too.

THE LOT OF A FIKEMAN
is not a happy one and ho earns dearly
every dollar of his salary. His long an'd
enforced hours of case are spent in con
stant dread of the anticipated alarm , and
ho sleeps in apprehension of a
sudden awakening. In season and out
ho must face all kinds of weather and
to hesitate in entering the burning bulM-
ing , albeit tlio walls are cracking , is sub
jection for him to tlio brand of cowardice ,
ills bravery is forgotten witli the occasion
calling it forth , and his glory is
posthumous , hardly that , for the bones
of the liremcn who went to their death
amid the fallen walls of the Grand Cen
tral hotel on that September night in 187b
are yet unhonored by the erection of any
public monument over them. Tliero is
