At a meeting of the Second ward
hose company "Wednesday evening a
committee was appointed to confer with
the foremen of the other hose teams
with regard to ways and means of secur
mg new hose, which the firemen claim
is badly needed. It was suggested that
a committee representing the entire de
partment solicit subscriptions from the
business men with which to purchase
this needed hose. But in soliciting cash
donations from business men, the depart
ment will be applying for aid from the
the duty of the
wrong source. It is
may need, and it is the duty of the coun-
cil to see that such is provided. The
chief or his assistant should appear be
fore the council and make a statement
of the condition of the 1500 feet of hose
now in use, and if he clearly demon
Btrates to the members of the council

cessfui fighting of fire it is quite Prob-
able that the needs will do supplied
The business men are willing to help pay
for the hose, but they believe that their
contributions should be made in the
shape of taxes, which distributes the
burden upon all benefitted by reason of
having a fire department. If the coun
cil is arbitrary in the matter, then let
the department invoke the aid of the
business men. The business men are
all friendly to the fire department and
are willing to grant any reasonable re
quest or lend financial aid, but to ask
them to purchase hose, when it is the
duty of the council bo to do, is too great
a demand. .Let the boys take the mat
ter before the council, and The TainujiE
