A Needed Correction,
To the Evening Newa :
In an issue of The Tiade Review,
of August 13, 1888, 1 notice an article
headed "Soldiers of Peace," alluding
to the fire department, in which, while
you give our volunteer firemen all due
praise, still I think there are som"
1. You state that there are "three
separate companies, two of which are
in Waco proper and one east of the
river." Is not that portion of the city,
which iies east of the river known 'as
the Fifth ward of the city of Waco,
as well as any othet ward ?
Again, you state that "A. M. Pres
cott, ably assisted by Joe S. Thomp
son, fills the honorable and responsi
ble position of chief engineer."
Now, a reference to the books of
the fire department will show that A.
M. Prescott, of Engine Co. No. 1, is
chief, Joe S. Thompson, of Rescue
Hook and Ladder Co., No. 1, is 1st
assistant chief.and that A. E. Osburne,
of Hose and Ladder, No. 2, of the
city of Waco, is 2nd assistant chief.
