All Oregon Talent.
Oreeonians are gradually aw aken-

state is just as proline in good

this week at the Opera House by

At our last regular meeting no such
resolutions were introduced, although I
learned after the meeting had adjourned
that resolutions had been gotten up, and
the same are now In the hands of the
secretary. I was requested by several
members to call a special meeting of the
department to act on this matter. . I
would net do so without the regular
form being complied with namely, that
an application signed by at least seven
members be secured. This application
was handed to me later, signed by four
teen members of the department. I de
clined to call such a meeting in the
usual way by posting notices, but in
structed our secretary to notify each
member by mail, and he at once pr
deeded to do so. Hewever, . before he"
had time to Write out and mail these
notices, several of those that had signed
the requisition came to me and wished
t have the call revoked, and after due
consideration, I did so. ' I then learned
that a petition would be circulated for
signatures asking the city council to pro
hibit the Social Club using the hall for
dances. :' : '
On Monday evening a member of the
fire department handed me a paper ad
dressed to tbe city council. I looked it
over and handed it back. I asked him
how many he could get to sign" this
paper.' His answer ' was, "I can get lots'
of them." I then supposed it was his
intention to proceed to do so. -1 was
surprised to hear a paper somewhat sim
ilar, read at the council meeting and
signed "Several Members of the Depart
ment." . .' .
I wish to say that I do not approve of
any such proceedings. No member of
tbe department has any right or author
ity to address such a "paper to tbe city
council, or acy where else. They have
a perfect right to do so," provided they
attach their names to the same. I am
sorry any unpleasantness should arise,
as I would like to have harmony in the
department if possible. It is very im
portant that we should maintain an effi
cient fire department.
By the action of the council at its hst
meeting, the control of the firemans' hall
has been assumed entirely by them.
This relieves the fire department from
any responsibility in the matter, and
any individual' or organization wishing
to use the same must secure permission
from the city to do so. .. .
I, however, believe that every fire do
partmsnt should own and control its
own hall, and it would have been much
better for our department if it had re
mained separate and independent from
the city in this, matter. As it is, I be
lieve that the action of the council was
the best for all concerned.
