LEBANON'S FIRE DEPARTMENT
Report of the Chief Engineer of tht
Lebanon Fire Department,
February t, 1895.
Rcpert of the Chief Engineer of the
Lebanon Fire Department to the com
mittee on Fire and Water.
Lebanon Is one of the cities where
measures for protection against the
ravages of fire are not taken, because
of the Indiflcrence and open opposi
tion manifesled by the leading men In
the city; induced by past immunity
from lo'S they find it easier (and to
their minds more economical) to rest
their hopes of future security on the
fortunuto experiences of th past,
rather than by the investment of a
sum of money In appliances. Where
Htii-.h views of false economy are
allowed to diclate tlie policy of a city
council, sooner or later it is made to
pay heavily lor its error in judge
ment. Lebanon has good waterworks, the
pump pressure is splendid for ore
purposes, the busiutss part of town Is
well supplied with two way hydrants.
The city will pay the water company
200 during ihe fifteen years that
the present franchise runs, provided,
no moreliyorants are put in. You are
now paying for 10 hydrants to pro
tect eleven blocks, now four-fifths of
the cltizetis will be taxed to pay for
fire protection und will have ab
solutely no protection, the one-flflb
that will pay for their own protection
will be paying for water without the
necessary appliances for handling the
water in ease of a large fire which It
will surely be if it la In the busitless
part of the city. Tlie Lebanon Fire
Hove are till young men strong and
active, taken fmru the middle classea.
I don't think Unit the entire member
ship can control $.",(00 and the larger
part of Mint is in residences ill the
uiiprnterled part of t tie city they are
it, the companies simply for what
good they may preform, without any
hope of reward except that of their
You will find that the men that
will kick against a fire company are
the men that hold property and are
most benilited by Ihe fire companies.
The volunteer fire companies are not

together for their oviii protection,

Insurance company sootier than pay
$otoa lire onmpany, eveu when he
kuows that if the company would
disbund Ihe insurance companies
would raise Ihe rate all of 25 percent.
Tlie Fire Department of Nevada,
Kansas, consisting of three com panics
have disbanded, the city would pay
them and the chief only $500 a year,
the insurance union have notified the
policy holders of the city that they
will raise the rate, the citizens will
have to pay the small sum of $19,500
excess, heat lie business men got a
rebate of tl80,000 the year that they
spent $105;000 on their fire deparU
ment. Astoria paid their chief only
$300 a year and he is supposed to fill
the office of chief, fire warden and
fire marshal, he was supposed to see
that the ordinances on fire and pre
vail lo-.i of fire was carried out, they
could not get a chief that would fill
the offices., now there is a bill before
the legislature to amend I heir charter
and make the department a full paid
department. Tlie Lebanon Fire Co.
have never received one dollar from
the city for running expenses. I
cun not find a fire company in the
state of Oregon where the city does
not pay the running expenses of the
fire companies. Oregon City pays
$80 a year and their meeting room Is
nice and neat, the company here has
bought their own office furniture, belt,
bell, hoije carts, etc., about $000 paid
for tilings that should have been
bought by the city, we have paid
about $60 a year for 11 years us run
ning expenses and It has all come from
ynuug men that have Mot benefited
by having a company, when the
company was organized In March
1884, almost every business man in
the city joined the lire company, but
as some hud to be high privates In the
rear ranks, they would not stay with
the company W. J. Guy, I), M.

the young men have served 11 years

business men that are protected
either will not Join the company or
will draw out as soon as they are
I will now make a few suggestions
bow you can make the fire company
Put In a good gong at the pump
station or a good telephone.
Buy two Waldrou controlling n
zels also four set of hose couplings.
Buy lumber enough to put up a ladder
rack and bucket shelves and to cover
water pipe to keep from freezing and
also make a walk from hack door to
the jail and bell tower. We shonld
have two Babcock fire extinguishers.
Pay tie company $10 a month for
running expenses and chiefs salary.
Buy the company's bell and hose
expander, the money to be used in
getting new furniture, carpet, etc.
One hundred feet of good bose cau
not be used in case of fire because we
have no bose couplings, and 100 feet
because the wheels on the service cart
are too light and small, you should
get two six feet Sarven patent wheels.
Make an ordinance giving the chief
or assistants the right to tear down or
blow up with powder any buildings
that they may deem necessary to stop
the ravages of a fire.
Have 100 copies of ordinance No. 10
printed in pamphlet form with margin
for remarks, also give the chief a fee
for each house inspected by him and
allow his bits for paper, stamps and
writing, and then make the chief
Inspect all of the houses in tbe city
once a year and the business part twice
Tbe part of ordinance No. 10 that
governs oil and powder should include
cartridges and caps and should be
rigidly enforced as has been allowed
by tbe disaster at Butt? and also at
Corvallis. Cartridges are almost us
bad as powder. Dr. Ellis lost his eye
at a fire in Albauy by the explosion of
If you want the fire company to be
efflcieut give us plenty of appliances
and we will do the reel.
If you expect the fire Loys to get
out at nny time the alarm is given and
in all kinds of weather you must en
force the laws you have to protect
them. Butte, Mont., loses all of their
brave fire boys but two and the only
thing they can do is just what Leba
non can do if tbe same tbiug should
happen here fine the man that bad
the powder $10 when It should be 10
years In the pen.
Now hoping that the city of Leba
non will do as much for ber fire com
panies as she expects them to do for
ber, I am yours
Allen B. Nickesson,
' Chief of Lebanon Fire Department.
A Hit at Eugene.
The Commercial Review of Portland
says: Mr. J. E. Drucks, of Los Aug
eles, California, who has had an eye
for some time on this state with the
view of establishing a flouring mill
was lu Eugene last week looking over
the situation. We understand the in
tention is to establish a steam mill; he
should be offered all the encourage
ment necessary and the mill secured
by Eugene if in any way possible.
But from present appearances unless
the Eugene citizens bestir themselves
and give some solid and substantial
encouragement to some one miller to
go and locato there, tbey will get a
flour mill neither tbls year or next.
Tbe regular announcements coming
from that town spaced seven days
apart saying "So-and-so from 8o-sn is
here looking over tbe situation," re
minds us of a certain burg tlie writer
aocidently struck in his travels lost
Bummer where the entire population
started for "the store" In the morning
staying there till rridnignt iu tbe hope
of "something turning up," this is just
a bit exaggerated, but the principle
more than fits Eugene. If the oltizetiB
of Eugene would assist Mr. Edris, who
lost bis all when bis mill burnt there,
they would have a mill to be proud of

816 GDNS ARE ON THE WAY
TO PROTECT SAN FRANCISCO
They Will Be t Placed on Either
Side of the Golden
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 8.-The
Golden Gate will be protected by three
of the biggest guns in the United
States, pointed seaward from vantage
positions on either side of the Gate.
Tbey will furnish a complete defense
against any craft that might escape
the shells which tbe new mortar bat
teries will send to sea for a distance of
six miles. The guns are now on the
way here. They weigh approximately
fifty-seven ton each, or 371,400 pounds
lu all. Each gun has a length of forty
feet, diameter of fourty-sjx and four
tenths Inches and circumference of
twelve feet, two Inches at the greatest
point. Two of the guns are to be
transported to the upper batteries of
the fortifications on Fort Point bluffs,
and the third one to the fortifiactions
on top of Lime Point.
Th. Coast Bate War.
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. !).-The
Pacific Coast Steamship company has
caused a special order to be issued ad
vertising that passenger rates by the
steamer City of Puebla, which leaves
today for Puget Bi.und ports, will be
heavily cut Firstclass "abin tickets
will be sold for $10 and steerage $5, a
reduction of one-half under old rates.
The most important move in the rate
war, however, Is the announcement
that freight will be accepted for $2 per
ton, and as a result of the notice mer
chants are rejoicing. The opposition
line will cut under these figures, it is
said, aud a big rush of passengers and
freight is expected to goon this trip.
The steamer Farallou arrived on the
morning of the 7th, well loaded down,
in spite of the fact that the Pacific
Coast company tried to capture all the
opposition line's business by sending
out a steamer from the Sound on the
same day that the Farullon sailed. It
was reperted in business circles the
railroad company would receive freight
at a reduction for Victoria, Portland,
Seattle' and Tacoma on the days that
Farallon sails, but the Pacific Coast
Steamship company alleges that It has
bad no conference with the Southern
Pacific company. Tbe Meyer & Ak
mau people say they are going to stay
with tbe fight and will permanently
reduce rates to tbe Sound.
Two Shot. Fired.
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 9.Au at
tempt upon the life of I, W, Helltnan,
president of tbe Nevada bunk, and one
of the leading financiers of the city,,
was made at 9:15 o'clock this morning.
A man named Holland, said to be a
forger, fired two shots ut tlie banker
near the latter's residence, on Califor
nia street, and then shot himself, .in
flicting a mortal wound. The shots
fired at Hellman went wide of their
Holland is known to have passed
several forged checks on the First Na
tional bank, and about a month ego
presented one at tlie Nevada bank', but
Receiving Teller Brook refused to ac
cept It, having recognized tho man
from the description given him by tbe
First National bank people. Brook
notified the police and the former was
arrested. Later he was released at Mr.
Ex-Superior Judge Levy says that
Holland, whose age is about fourty
years, came to him recently and asked
hliu to bring suit against the Nevada
bank for defamation of character for
refusing to accept a check.
Holland prided himself on bis integ
rity. With bis temperament tbe
shooting was the outgrowth of brood
ing over tbe slight on his character.
Two Stoamer. Helpless.
MILWAUKEE, Feb. 8,-Two miles

large Ice fields' that extend for miles
into tbe lake, are two large steamers.

them are about sixty men and a large
consignment of merchandise. They

The boats have been fust since Friday

A Narrow Eiicape.
YAQUINA, Or., Feb. 8.-The
steamer Homer which arrived in port
from Frisco last Thursday, reported a
narrow escape from colliding with the
derelict Brig Lucas, about five miles
off Heceta Light house, It was early In
the morning and quite dark when the
derelect wus discovered directly ahead
and only a short distance off. Had it
been a little darker there would un
doubtedly been a collision which
might Lave proved disastrous to the
Homer. It is a burning shame for the
government to allow this dangerous
derelict to remain drifting around a
menace alike to life and properly;
when there are several idle men-of-war
and revenue vessels lying in San Fran
cisco. One of these ships should be
promptly dispatched to look up and
destroy this derelict before some acci
dent happens, which may cause the
loss ot life, should one occur. The
authorities whose duly tt is to attend
to such matters, will be thoroughly in
excusable for tbtir negligence.
The Cold Wave Broken.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 8.-The
cold snap is broken nud the thermom
ertcr is gradually creeping up again.
Before making tbe change, however,'
the low mark for the last ten year was
reached, when, at 10 o'clock this morn
ing, the thermometer was 12 below.
Over in Kuihus, also, the weather has
become warmer. Nevertheless, many
trains are still snnv. bound and will be
for a day or two. Active relief is being
put iu operation, and so fur as known
there has been no loss of human life.
The poorer classes however, are still
suffering great hardships. Dispatches
from the terrritory tell of great suffer
ing. A St. Louis dispatch says the
coldest weather ever recorded by the
siguul service there iu February had
the city In an Icy grip last night. A
high wind drove the dry snow in a
blinding storm. Tonight the mercury
Is at zero, and slowly rising. With fav
orable weather it will be two days be
fore travel can be resumed. No locality
within 500 miles west and southwest of
this city escaped the storm. , i
Decided to Couteat.
SAN FRANCISCO, Teb. 8.-The
children of tlie luteJamesG. Fair have
decided to contest their father's will.
One of the attorneys for the daughters,
Mis. Herman Oelricli and -Miss Vir
ginia Fair, made statements in court
today that the probate of the will
would he opposed, and the couit al
lowed a continuance of two weeks to
inaugurate a contest. Fair's daughters
and his son, Charles L. Fair, are act
ing in ooncet t in the mutter. The fight
over tbe Fair millions promises to be
long aud bitter. All of the leading
law firms of Ibe city aie being drawn
into the contest on one Bide or the
other, Governor Iludd being one of
Charles Full's special counoil. The
executors specially desired to secure
the probating of the will before the
contest, so that they could make the
fight out of tlie funds of the estate, in -stead
of personally advancing the costs
of the battle. .
