Withnell to Advise
Fire Box System in
Superintendent Withnell of the fire
department will recommend to the city
council Tuesday morning the installa
tion of a modern fire alarm telegraphic
system in the "high value business dis
trict," bounded by Lake, Pierce and
Mr. Withnell has an estimate which
places the cost at $60,000 and 16,000 a year
for malntalnence. It is proposed to build
a central station, which may be enlarged
as the alarm system is extended.
The first proposition was to cover the
entire city at an estimated expenditure
of $150,000, the fire underwriters urging
this additional protection as necassary
before Insurance rates are lowered.
Mr. Withnell feels confident that the
proposed system in the business district
will meet the requirements of the un
derwriters and at the same time afford
needed protection. Tentative plans call
for 200 boxe within the territory out

A professional-looking young man

five minutes before 11. noon. He looked
anxiously around and thsn approached
a reporter and whispered:

the bridge of sighs that spans the alley
and up the steep stairs that led to the
palace of art.

around and approached the reporter.
