HERLS A KICK
From the Fifth Ward About
A COMMITTEE APPOINTED
By Fire Company No. 4 to
Complain to the Next
Meeting of Council.
At a meeting of No. 4. Fire Company
in the Fifth ward the other night, a com
mittee was appointed to go before the
city council and ask that a certain fire
plug in that ward be fixed.
It is claimed that no attention has
beeu paid their past requests, and they
want to know why protection is net given
The following card on the subject ex
plains the matter as they view it:
During ths big snow last winter the
fire plug at No. 4 reel house froze, and at
the same time the residence of T. S. Cot
ton caught on fire and burned down.
When the alarm of fire was sounded the
department responded promptly, made
their connections at the above named
plug, but failed, on account of the plug
being frozen,to got water. The boys were
forced to disconnect and drag the hose
through the deep snow 660 feet to
the next plug before they could get water.
In the meantime the fire had gained such
headway it was impossible to save the
building, and it looked for a time as if
the adj fining buildings would be swal
lowed up by the flames.
Since the above mentioned fire the
plug has been in a wrecked condition
when the hoso is connected and the
water turned on. There is so much waste
of water th it it is impossible to get full
The matter has been reported to the
water works committee of the council
and to the superintendent of water
works, and still it remains in the same
Perhaps it is all right as long as we
have no fires, but if a fire should break
out in that section and all burn up on
account of the bad condition of the plug,
the fire department will not be in fault.
But in case they should be criticised, I
will quote you a few lines of the city
code, which read as follows:
“It shall be the duty of the superin
tendent of water works to have genera
supervision of the engine house, engine,
reservoir, pipes, hydrants, wrenches,
stop gates, fire plugs, machinery, struc
tures and property connected with the
water works, subject always, however, to
the supeivision of the jyoard of commis
sioners, and t* such regulations and di- I
radioes and restrictions as the board or
council may from time to time prescribe.
He shall attend to the sufficiency of the
supp’y of water in the reservoir. He
shall be required te do all repairing to
the engine, boiler,(pipes, mains, etc. with
the help of the assistant, as can be done
consistently with his other duties. He
shall b iduly sworn to diecha-ge his du
“He shall be required to make weekly
trips of inspect! m, to notice the breaks
and waste of water, arid sbail report ar y
and all violations of this ordin met) as
required by section 24. He shall dili
gently attend to all duties and make all
repairs to the rrgine, boiler, reservoir,
pipes, ec., at Lis own cost.”
This is a serious matter,and it is hoped
that somebody will take it in hand an I
attend to it once, as the weather is get
ting cold and we are likely to have a fire
at any time. The people pay taxes for
fire protection, and feel that itis an im
position on them to have to run around
and report matters to city cffioials that
are paid good salaries to look after them.
