Acting under instructions of J. V.
Perkins and Dr. Vincil, of the board
of fire commissioners, a number of
substantial and needed improvements
have been mado to the fire appara
tus housed at the city hall. The
chemical engine has been recharged
and is now in perfect working Condi-'
tlon. . Additional hydrant wrenches
have been purchased, while the axes
and other implements needed in time
of fire have been repaired and placed
In first-class condition. Mr. Perkins
says he IntendB to Bee that the fire
fighting equipment is kept in the
best of condition, and in readiness
for any conflagration that may oc
cur. Mr. Perkins, in speaking of the
duties of the board of fire commis
sioners this afternoon, stated that
the present ordinances governing the
erection of buildings 'within the fire
limits was inadequate and unworthy
of serious consideration. "This or
dinance does not even give the board
of fire commissioners power to In
spect buildings',' said Mr. Perkins.
"much less of condemning buildings
of faulty construction. In this re
gard I wish to say that -the board
of fire commissioners has examin
ed the south wall of tho new hotel
and has found that It doeB not com
ply with the city ordinances regulat
ing tho ercclon of fire walls. V1th-i
out any specme authority too board
of ;firo commissioners will submit
this defect to tho consideration of
the council at its next regular meet
ing. I consider the present fire or
dinance lame in many respects, and
In due time the board of fire com
missioners will submit an ordinance
to the council for adoption which will
prove sufficient. Wo must protect
the property-owners against fire, and
'he quicker we taku cognizance of
such fact the better for all concern
ed." Tho first meeting of the new board
of fire commissioners will be held
next Wednesday evening when a num
ber of; mattors of vital Interest will
be discussed. At this meeting Mr.
Perkins will call attention to the need
of more metropolitan fire ordinances.
and will urge their compilation at
an early date.
Look out for but ions.
