A Needless Expense to the City and
a Useless Procedure to Call Out
More Than One Hose Company.
A vigorous kick has been register
ed b)' citizens of Pendleton because
tho general flro nlnrm was turned in
Monday night during tho flro which
destroyed tho rcsldcnco or Robert
Lalng.'on Bluff street.
The city Is divided Into wards nnd
each ward Is supposed to take care
of Its own ilres unless It is deemed
necessary for other wardB to hulp
out In caso of nno not being nble to
protect tho property or copo with the
fire. .Monday night tho llro which de
stroyed tho Laing property was in no
danger of spreading to unjoining
property other than tho outbuildings
or Mr. I-alng s and the 0110 hoso com
pany having tho flro under their su
pervlslon was all that could do any
thing, and In fact it was so badly
handicapped on account of tho lire
being so far away from tho hydrants
and so high above tho city that when
the water -was turned on little forco
could be secured, and it could do noth
lug toward saving the building.
The general alarm was turned In
after the fire had spent Its fury nnd
It Is claimed that tliero was no need
of any assistance from nny of the
other hoso companies. It Is claimed
that somo one who hnd.no authority
turned In the general alarm and much
speculation lias been Indulged In as
to why It was done.
Tho city pays each member of tho
flro department ?1 an hour for the
time spent fighting fires and when the
whole forco is called out It Is a big
expense to tho city.
There are six companies, besides
tho hook nnd ladder company and
each of these Is supposed to contain
12 to 15 members. It Is safe to say
that It costs the town In tho neigh
borhood of $100 an -hour ovory time
tno general alarm Is turned In.
Complaint has been mado of this
character before. The firemen, them
selves, have called attention to tho
extravagance. One caso in partlcu
lar was that of the second call of tho
Schultz brewery fire. It Is claimed
that soveral days after tho brewery
was destroyed that lire broke out in
1 pile of sawdust and that the goner
al alarm was turned in, costing tho
town nearly 5100, when ono company
with one hose was all that was neces
It Is claimed that the alarms nre
turned in by persons unacquainted
with signals; that when a flro breaks
out, in th eexcltemont any citizen
is likely to rush for the boll nnd does
not take timo to read the instnic
tlons painted in largo letters near tho
boll, but rlnes the bell for all It is
worth. In this way the general alarm
is turned In when it should not be.
If tho work was left to tho fire
men such mistakes would not occur.
In each fire ward there is a hoso
house, over which is a bell. This bell
should bo rung for an alarm of flro
n tho respective wards. In caso of a
arge Are, or where tho chief thinks it
necessary to call out th entire de
partment, ho does so.
Some arrangement should bo mado
whereby only those familiar with the
signals should bo permitted to turn
in tho alarm. Tho haphazard way of
anybody and oorybody turning in
the alarm and running tho city Into a
heavy cost In caso of sawdust fires
and other unnecessary occasions
should bo guarded against In tho fit.
