To -run Mayok anu City CorsciL:
G entlemen : I herewith submit
to you my annual report as chief en
gineer of Astoria Fire Dept. for the
year ending Sept. HO, 1883:
During the year there has been 3-t
fire alarms to which the Dept. re
sponded and numerous brush firc3 on
the hills back of the city. The
total los? by fire has been a3 near as I
can ascertain, including the box !ac-
toryat Upper town, $250,000, on
which there was an insurance of $73,-
000. In combating tires during the
past year, especially those in the resi
dence part of the city, the depart
ment has labored under great disid
vantage on account of the litck of cis
terns on the back streets, of being un
der the necessity ot laying 1,:UU or
2.000 feet of hose up the steep hill
side, making unnecessary work for
the men and straining the apparatus;
this could be obviated by the con
struction of a few large cisterns, cen
trally located in the higher parts of
the city. Another cause of delay in
responding to alarms is the uncer
tainty of the location of the fire, to
remedy which 1 would suggest the
immediate arrangement of an electric
alarm with. at least six lnrm boxes,
and one gong, the gng to be at the
engine house of Rescue Engine Co.,
No. 2, as that is the most central lo
cation. The hose carts at present in use are
not of sufficient carrying capacity and
I would most earnestly recommend
the purchase of a large carriage, as
the necessity of it is apparent at near
ly every fire. The alarm bell has not
given satisfaction in its present loca
tion, as it is not elevated sulficicntly
be heard distinctly.
The cistern covers in this city are
and have been very much neglected,
they arc not located in the center of
o street crossings, and are allowed
become filled with dirt so that it is
almost impossible to raise them, others
are covered over bv the planking of
the street, and there are not enough
them to insure dispatch in getting
I would also recommend for the
preservation ot the lire engines the
immediate introduction of somo
method of supplying them with fresh
water, as at present they are obliged

ers causing them great injury and de

I would call jour attention to the
fact that the ordinance regarding
riving over lines of hose is frequent
ly violated, and recommend that it be

the window on the east side of the
main door now is, it would give room
to tike out the hose cart without
moving the engine which at present
has to be done.
The apparatus and membership of
the department are as follows:

Oil on the Waters.
The report of B. C. Sparrow, super
intendent of the second life saving
district, under whose directions ex
periments have recently been made
the use of oil for calming rough
seas, has been presented to Superin
tendent Kimball, of the life saving
service. The experiments were maue
with a view to determing to what ex
tent oil could be used as an auxiliary
agent by the life saving servico, and
the conclusion deduced from them ,
the superintendent says, is thai:
Oil exerts no influence 'upon a sea
that breaks on the shore. The result
when in roiling indnlatiou from the
ocean throws thousands of tons of wa
ter upon the shore cannot be pre-
entcd by thin Aim oil. A majority
of printed statements, together with
all verbal statemtnts made by mari
ners who have used it, furnish con
clusive evidence that in deep water,
oil has a calming mlluence upon a
rough sdh; but there is nothing in
either source of information which an
