messago from Pleasant Drove stating
that n passenger on tho Interurbau
had missed his overcoat and thnt a
man wns seen to get off tho car at

arm. Policeman Dunoan began a
search, and after visiting all tho ho

Flrmage Report Ridiculed
ltcnl Reason For Statement Urlcflr
"Tho local theatres aro nothing but
flro traps," satd Mr, Flrmago at tho
last session of tho City Council.
At first being unnblo to understand
why Mr, Flrmage should mnko such a
simple, utterly absurd, unreasonable
stntomont, I begun to mako inqulrlos
nnd learned that ho wns acting and
speaking under tho spell of qulto
natural nnrrow-mlndcdncss, owing to
a personal grievance, toward Mr. h.
W, Nielsen, who, by tho way, is affili
ated with tho Orient ThentTO. Mr.
- Flrmago has shown hs mollco sov
oral tlmeu In tho past. On ono occa
sion ho called a meeting of tho flro
men, requesting a voto to drop Mr.
Nlolsou from thnt organization but
tho boys absolutely refused to consid
er his childish whim.
When the fact of tho wholo matter
was explained in its trua light to two
of our City Councllmon who woro r
pointed for tho Investigation, t!
could readily understand that Mr. Fi
mngo had no ground for his groaol.
false statemont. It wbb pointed out
to tho Flro Department committee
that tho Oriont Theatre was abso
lutely flro proof.
That Mr. Ashby, its architcot, took
special pains In this particular. First,
that tho boiler room bo completed
(stairs, wall and floor) or solid con
crete Tho operating room nlso is of
solid concrete tho thentro floor solid
concrete, etc., etc.
Tho Orient Thentro has moro alslos
and exit spaco than any othor theatre
In tho stnto of its size Its ventila
tion system is perfect.
Wo know thnt our patrons nppre
clato our modorn up-to-dnto conven
iences, and would advlso at this tlmo
that Mr. Flrmago stroke his furrow,
od brow and think twlco beforo he
attacks tho lntorosts of on incorpor
