SAFEGUARDS AGAINST FIRE.
Honolulu is chk'lly composed of
wooden buildings, and in this hot,
hmnll flim.Uo the wood soon bc
cotu " lil. tinder. As tliti saying is,
"Put a hmU'Ii within a mile of it and
it will take lire." With such a dan
ger nt tiring us perpetually in the
face, we ought to see what provision
we have made against the danger,
what safeguards wc have in case of
Owing to the plan pursued in
laying out the city (or rather, wc
should think, followed by chance)
our streets are narrow and crooked,
ho that if a fire takes place on one
side of the street, buildings on the
other are in as great danger as those
immediately contiguous to the con
flagration. But as a set-off to this
danger, houses here are not built so
close to-gcthcr as they are in other
parts of the globe.
Still the custom of building three
or four houses in the same yard is
even more dangerous, and must, we
believe, eventually tend to lower the
rents obtained from property. For
what security is there, to any of the
inhabitants of' these three or four
cottages, that some one of the others
iu not careless or malicious enough'
to set his place on tiro, and so burn
out the whole yard.
Then our artificial safeguards, our
Tire Department; what shall we say
of it when wc hear that till the hose
in the town is not uniform and m
will not couplo ; and thus much time
is lost at a fire in finding what hose
will couple, and that many of the
hydrants in town are old and will
not fit the fire-plugs, and that ttcrc
is one (he-plug on Emma street that
no hydrant will fit? When we hear
. that at the late firo in Emma street
no one seemed to have the direction
of the workers, each one did as he
pleased, and outsiders seemed to
have more to do with this direction
of affairs and to be obeyed better titan
the chief of the brigades : when we
hear there ate reservoirs in this town
that hold no water because they leak,
and no one can, or seems to want to,
find out where the leak is: when we
know that the pressure of water in
the dav'titue. is not sulllcicnt to put
out anything of a fire, and at night-
' time most of the supply is'cttt off.
..i, An' night a fire may take place iu
China Town, and it here shall we bo
then? It is too late to begin to
polish our arms after the fight is be
gun: let us like wise men look over
our stock of armour, and get, and
'keep, them ready against the day of
necessity, which, we truly hope, will
