FIRE DEPARTMENT '
SELECTMAN CHITTENDEN CALLS
IT A MOB, PURE AND SIMPLE.
Sensational Allegations Follow the
Investigations of the Special Com
mittee Which Undertook the Diall
ing of a New Eire Department Or
dinance Two RportB Differing
Very Materially Are Presented to
Council and Referred to the Fire
Department Commltteo One Saves
$8,000, the Other Expends $30,000
Select Counellmen Chittenden nnd
Vaughan In drawing up the ordinance
providing for the reorganization of the
flro department, reckoned without Jo
seph Oliver, the gentleman from the
Fifteenth, who was the third member
of the special committee nppolnted to
consider this question. As a conse
quence, Mr. Oliver presented a minor
ity report Inst night, In the shape of
a seeoud ordinance ptovldlng for u
radically different plan of reorganiza
tion from the one proposed In Messrs.
Chittenden and Vaugnan's measure,
which was also introduced last night.
The provisions of the last named
measure have aheady been described
in these columns. While Chief "Walker
Is In favor of certnln pcrtlons of this
measure, It Is understood that he If
In entlie record with all of the re
visions of Mr. Oliver's ordinance, the
last named gentleman und himself bo
ing both members of the Columbia
The powers conferred upon the chief
nro practically the same as In the
other measure, which, to differentiate,
will be termed the Chittender
Vaughan ordinance. lie Is to
be appointed by the mayor with
tho confirmation of select coun
cil, and his salary is fixed nt M.2P0
a year, lie is to ha-o entire control
of nil tho property of the department
and is to have the power to transfer
men, horses und apparatus.
He is authorized to publish on the
first Monday of every April full speci
fications for the purchase of all sup
plies and apparatus, but this purchas
ing power Is not placed in his hands,
as it is in the Chlttcnden
Vaughan measure. lie is per
mitted to make small purchases,
but not all. He is required to furnish
a bond of $3,000 for the faithful per
formance of his duties, and must turn
over to tho city treasurer ntl com
missions, discounts and presents, nnd
the proof of the receipt, and withhold
ing of any such shall constitute a mal
feasance In ofllce.
Tho ordinance provides that the de
partment shall consist of a chief, four
assistant chiefs, sixteen companies nnd
captains of various companies, perma
nent men, bunk men nnd call men.
The city Is to be divided Into four
districts, each to be In charge of a
district chief at a salary of $500 a
year. These assistant chiefs nre to aid
the chief In tho discharge of his duties,
and, under tho chief's direction, ure to
have complete charge of all men,
horser. t nd npparatus In their respec
tive districts. There is no provision
whatever In tho Chlttcnden-Vaughan
ordinance for assistant chiefs.
Tho appointment of men for the var
ious companies Is nearly the same as
in the Chlttendcn-Vaughan ordinance,
nnd is as follows: Steamer company,
live permanent men nnd six bunk or
call men: chemical company, four per
manent men: hose companies, three
permanent men and his bunk or call
men; hook and lndder company, five
permanent men and four bunk or call
men; combined chemical nnd hose
companies, four permanent men jr.d
six bunk or call men."
CALL AND BUNK MEN.
The call men are to respond to nil
fires and are to be paid at the rate of 40
cents an hour for all time actually ex
pended at all fires, the time to be com
puted from the ringing of the alarm
to their return to the house. The bunk
men are to bo all call men sleeping In
the engine house nnd their compensa
tion Is to bo 50 cents an hour.
The chief is empowered to select from
the permanent men of each company
one person who Is to be the captuln,
who Is to have personal charge of all
city property In his company house,
nnd who Is to bo held responsible for
the maintenance of order at t-hc englno
house and for the discipline of the men
of his company nt fires.
The salary of permanent men Is fixed
nt $720 a year or $G0 a month. The
Vnuchiu-Chittendcn mensure leaves
tho salaries as they are at piesent.
The ordinance provides for the ills
banding of all companies, but no tlie
for this is fixed.
At last night's meeting of select
council when the two repoits were be
fore the house, Mr. Chittenden stated
that the majority ordinance will cut
down the present flie department ex
penditure of $"2,000 a year to $44,000,
while tho Oliver ordinance contem
plates Increasing the expenditures by
about $30,000, without providing any
means to meet the Increase.
Speaking of his Investigations of tho
fire department, since his nppolntment
on the special committee Mr. Chitten
den mnde this sensational statement:
"I must say that our fire department
is not nn organization. It Is a mob,
pure and simple. A business man
would not tolerate it for a minute If
It wns an affair he had pilvately to
Mr. Oliver followed with a brief
speech In defense of his minority re
port, but was silent as to the startling
allegation of his fellow-commltteeman
regarding the lack of proper govern
ment In the department.
The Chlttenden-Vaughan ordinance,
Mr. Oliver contended, aimed ut the
abolition of the volunteer department
and the substitution of something far
less elllclent. fjuch action would be
retrogression, he thought, and tho peo
ple of this city want nothing but prog
ress. On motion of Mr. Chlttednen both re
ports were referred to the flro depart
ment committee without Instruction.
Miss Mattie Munson, of This City,
Weds D. Oliver Bostwlck.
Another happy June wedding took

his vacation In New York city. He

afternoon and asked that the state

the effect that he had "skipped" be
"I did not skip and had no occasion
to skip," Mr. Straub said. "It is true
there was a shortage of $2,000 in the
bank's accounts for which I was re
sponsible, but every cent of It was
made good before I went on my vaca

city this afternoon that I received even
tho first Inkling of the fact that the
newspapers had printed anything
about tho affair. None of the stories
that I have seen agreo and the onlv

appeared In yesterday's Tribune. The
fnct that Mr. Shafer's own statements,

to interview him before making my
statement. He went out of town over
night, but I will endeavor to see him

Mr. Straub Insisted that the robbery
story was not a creation of his to ex
plain away apparent crookedness.
Various stories of a highly sensa
tional nature concerning the affair are
being tol(l. One of them Is to the ef
fect that the defalcation Is vastly
greater than the highest figures yet
mentioned and that no small part of
the shortage Is due to Mr. Straub hav
ing advanced large sums of money for
personal favors, these moneys being
given as loans on Insecure notes.

Patrolman Schmidt, while trying to

Mayor Molr gave him a hearing, at

ON LICENSE TAX
ORDINANCE DEFERRED OWING
Mr. Chittenden itfoves to Recommit
tho Measure with Instructions to
the Committee to Consult City So
licitor Vosburg Speak-Easy Ordi
nance, Giving Police Power to Raid
Unlicensed Places, Passed on Third
Reading Assistant Flro Chief
SJowe Will Be Lexowed.
It was 9.45 o'clock when the license
tax ordinance was reached by select
council last night, and In view of the
wholesale amendments awaiting its
appearance, It was decided to post
pone net Ion.
On motion of Mr. Chittenden It wns
recommitted with lnstiuctlons to the
committee to consult with City Solici
tor Vosburg In making the measure
confmm to tho law, particularly
wherein It Imposes a tax In excess of
$100 a year on corporations, which It
appears Is unwarranted by law. In
terested parties, It was suggested by
Mr. demons, should appear before the
commltteo with nny complaints they
may have to mnlte.
Mr. Chittenden suggested that the
committee might be instructed to mod
ify the live per cent, tax on street
car companies by making it "In lieu
of all other taxes." -V number of
voices declared "it can't be done legal
ly," and Mr. Chittenden did not fur
ther presM his suggestion.
There wore a large number of men

Mlt. IIOCHK'3 OBJECTIONS.
Mr. Hoche explained that his opposi
tion to the measure was based on tho
assertion of tho mayor that the police
force was too meagre to attend to the
duties 1c already has to look after.
Mr. Oliver shouted out, "If the mayor
would only put to work some of tho
policemen who are drawing pay for
doing nothing that difficulty would
probably be overcome somewhat." Ho
refened to the mayor's refusal to re
instate 1 leutem nt Spellman and Pa
trolmun I. F. Jones. Tho ordinance
has yet to go through common coun
cil. A pioposltton was received from the
Nay Aug and Elmhutst Boulevard
comrany. thiough its president, C. D.
Simpson, offering to sell the city the
company's light of way through Nay
Aug park und also the Nay Aug bridge
for $11,000, the amount lepresented by
the company's outstanding bonds, pro
viding, however, that the city main
tain a free road to the boulevard.
Mr. Koch thought this an easy way
out of the toll-gate-ln-the-park squab
ble, and moved to refer the matter to
the city engineer, city t-ollcltor, park
comtnis&ioners and park committee.
Tho motion ununimously prevailed.
Ma or Molr sent a communication
nominating Harry W. Peters ns in
spector of Schultz court r.ewor. It was
refetiod to committee. He also made
a rerort. on the Patrolman Potter case,
which ho was naked tc Investigate.
Mrs. Blnghnm, who rented a house to
Potter, complained in a, letter to the
councils that he owed her $80, which
ho would not pay. The mayor's report
showed that the clilm was based on
a technicality and that Potter has con
fessed Judgment for the amount. Pot
ter, It uppears, rellnquljhed the house
because tho premises were not re
paired as he claimed thev should bo.
The J'cy wua left with the office boy
of Mr?. Bingham's agent, George B.
Davidson, and was accepted under
protest The claim Is for the rent ac
cruing during the period the lease had
yet to run.
ANIENT THE INSURANCi: BILLS.
Another communication was iccelved
from the mayor complaining that the
foolish dallying "with the Insurance
bills on the part of the auditing com
mltteo rendeied the policies worthless
nnd advising that they be settled. On
motion of Mr. Roche, the special com
mittee of the auditing committee, hav
ing the bills In hand, be directed to file
their report at the next meeting.
Street Commlslsoner Thomas sent a
communication lecommendlng that the
$250 appropriation for repairing the
West Mountain road which was trans
ferred be reapproprlated, to be ex
pended while the county jail prisoners
ate at work there. It was referred to
An adverse report was made on the
resolution directly the street commis
sioner to remove the additional Hack
laid by the Scranton nnllway company
on Providence road between Carbon
and Sterling streets. The report was
adopted. A communication from City
Solicitor Vosburg acompanled the re
port. It set forth that under the Peo
ple's Street Railway company franchise
the company was entitled to build "one
or more tracks with turnouts on any
route they might select between Scran
ton and Providence or other places."
Under this franchise, Mr. Vosburg said,
the company was entitled to build the
extra track, and advised that If the
street commlslsoner obeyed the resolu
tion It would plunge the city In pro
tracted and unprofitable litigation.
TO INVESTIGATE SLOWE.
Under the head of new business Mr.
Roche Introduced the following:

and report the facts to this council at Us next
Mr. Oliver, with Mr. Schneider as a
second, moved to lay the resolution on
the table. Mr. Roche explained that
the statement of the case was made to
him by a reputable citizen, and to his
mind It was something calling for In
vestigation. Mr. Roche Bald he did not
know either the district chief or the
assaulted citizen and propsed the in
vestigation as much out of Justice to
the accused engineer aa tho offended
Mr, Oliver said the matter had been
referred to the proper authority and
the accused assistant chief exonerated
and his action Justified,
"If that Is the case," remarked Mr.
Roche,. "It Is desirable to the accused,
I should Judge, to have this lnveatlga-tlon.
The motion to lay on the table wn
killed by an overwhelming vote nnd
then on motion of Mr. Roche, seconded
by Mr. Coyne, the resolution was
adopted, every member voting In the
affirmative except Mr. Oliver .

Chittenden, nnd adopted unanimously,
