THE HEITNER HOOK AND LADDER CO.
Their Machine Built By the
Waterous Engine Works.
STRICTLY FIRST CUSS N) WELL EQUIPPED.
The Members of Heppner's Company
An Effective Organization It
Has Been Tried.
The council's committee on tire and
water expect to fix the grades for side
walks iu the T. K Howard district of
Heppnsr, next Monday.
QUR READERS are perhaps aware
that Heppuer has organized a hooK
and ladder company, aud more, that the
organization is called Heppuer Hook &
Ladder Co., No. 1, but we doubt that
many of them have taken the trouble to
examine the apparatus with which
this company is equipped. It is there
fore the purpose of this article to fully
inform the people on this suhjeot, know
ing I hut growing towns adjacent will ere
j long desire to add like apparatus, and
I in buying, like everything else, the best
is none too good, but after perusing our
! description of the outfit purchased by
the Heppner oouuoil, we believe that
the most skeptical will conclude that it
is the most perfect aud efficient piece of
apparatus made for protection against
fire m towns where waterworks have not
been provided; and even in conjunction
with the powerful fire engine or hose
companv, the Waterous Hook and Lad
der outfit becomes a wonderful auxil
iary iu subduing the flames.
Heppner's outfit was purchased from
Messrs. Long and Scott, of Portland, rep
resenting the Waterous Engine Works
Co., and they should certainly feel
proud to be permitted to represent suob
elegant lines of fire machinery. And
too, in justice to these gentlemen, we
will say that every assertion, guarantee,
etc., regarding the effectiveness and du
rability of their lines, are as good as
Apropos the subject proper, we will
stale thut heretofore the only style of
hook and ladder track, available for the
use of the smaller cities and towns, has
been a plain wagon with a supply of
"jnckleg" ladders, wbioh had to be
taken off aud raised by hand, but we are
happy to say that this class of rigging,
like the old hand engine, is rapidly pass
ing out of date. However there are few
companies manufacturing really first
class apparatus for small towns. The
Waterous Engine Works Co , are the
only manufacturers who build a book
and ladder truck with a 40 ft. extension
ladder, on the city pattern, being a size
suitable for the use of smaller towns;
thut is to say, with screw power elevat
ing apparatus. Towns purchasing the
Waterous truck therefore have the
same advantages in bundling their lad
ders which the oity departments have.
The liberality of the Waterous people
in this respect iu putting the patent de
vioe upon their trucks for the small
towns without charging any royalty or
premium is duly appreciated, and re
sults in them receiving almost the en
tire trade of the smaller towns in their
The ''Waterous" truck is a model
of strength combined with the light
est possible weight, the gears being
A grade throughout, with full plat
form springs in front, half elleptio in
rear, the front wheels turning com

to give it great stength. The ladders
are made of the finest fire ladder stock
and the equipment throughout is first
The Waterous people are old manufac
turers and make everything in the line
of fire apparatus, and of the whole they
recommend a well-equipped book and
ladder truck as the very best piece of
apparatus which any town cau purchase.
It has many advantages. With a full
equipment of eighty-two rubber buckets,
a great amount of water can be handled,
and with the screw power ladders and
the additional single ladders the water
can be made most available and handled
most rapidly and efficiently at a fire. In
addition to this an equipment of f ur
Babcock chemical extinguishers are a
very valuable adjunct. Furthermore the
pull down hooks, chain and ropes, pike
pules, fire axes, etc., all npon the truck

anil included in this equipment are most
serviceable in case of fire.
Heppner has all this apparatus, and
the benefits arising therefrom are not
spoken of in a theoretical sense only, for
but a few dnye ago at the bti-ning of the
Heppner school house, a practicul illus
tration of its workings was seen.
We find that since our city council
has purchased the new truok, our young
men have organized a fire company of
something like thirty active and sev
eral contributing members, and it is their j
intention to drill regularly with the
truck and become proficient in handling
it. Also in handling the ladders, buck- '
ets, Babcocks. and pull down hooks, drill-:
ing each man to his particular part of
the work. In our opinion this is a very
valuable feature, as organized and well
drilled effort is invaluable in case of fire. !
The provision of this fine piece of ap-
parittua will result in our town having a
well orgnnized aud thoroughly efficient
fire oompaoy whose services may prove
invaluable at any time.
There are a great many of these truoks
in use throughout the United States, and
Messrs. Long & Scott, who are the agents
for the entire Pacific ooast for the Water
ous Engitie Works Co., are receiving
numerous offers for them throughout
Our town it on the eve of putting in
waterworks for fire protection, and will
ere long give our people an opportunity
to vote on this important subject. When
this is aooomplisbed, which, knowing the
progressive oharacter of our citizens,
assures early consummation of the pro-
jeot, and with the splendid book and
ladder outfit, with auxiliaries already
mentioned, Henpner will be one of tbe
best proteoted towns in the Northwest.

THE RIGHT PERSON.
Nothing has so much retarded the pro
gress of Eastern Oregon as the lack of
meauu for freight transportation to and
from that section. Aud while we are
urging Ihe merits of Morrow county and
Kitsteru Oregon for settlers, ill ill ho put
in a plea (or au open river, line it we
depend tipou oongreBs to aid us there
must he an Eastern Oregon man there
to look after these muttns. Tlie Onzetti

from which we should expect aid, though
if it should oouie from the state, ver.i
well. If it be possible tu build u per

to completion, but iuatuniiul) as thi
ll n ion 1'niMtlo has the right-of-way,
would deem it it a dinlciilt matter, for our
slate to build it on ttie Washingou side
would bo impossible. However, the Ga
zette has been of the opinion that the
state should do the work, and has so ex
pressed itself ou numerous occasions.

Our merchants are patronizing the
