Your committee on lliinnce rcsiioctfully
beg leu vo to rejMirt:
l nut at the last regular muetiiiK' of the
It inril ot Aldermen, our report reuom.
iiiendiiii; thut the bill or e.Npeii"ct or the
Arab il.'u oompuuv, for-lx mouth", be re
furred back l that company for expiana
tloiif ah to various Item- duiioininaied
"-tindrk," wub concurred In, and the
bill wa therefiire mi referred.
At a inoetiiii; of the Arab lire com
pany, DeeeuilH-r lUtli, a cenei of "bun.
ombu" rcsolutloiii were ordered to bo
i ml ujhiii their minute, and publish-
for ten day In the Cairo 'Kvculm;
ulletln,' In which ren'ilutions was one
which, with a liypercrltlel?m entirely
inn xteolol, an It had no real foundation,
coimtrued our report as sttilntniilt.
After thus relieving their minds they
parM il a resolution referring' the uuuu
1111 back to the Finance Committee nud
uotlfyim; in that they claimed the
whole amount of the bill. This resolu
tion and the bill referred to wum at
cordliiKly handed to us oon afterwards
by thilr .Secretary, .Mr. TIioh. J. Kcrth,
when Au Informed him that the bill
c .'ild not be received by us unless the
i. liters of the City Council were obeyed,
mid the items of "diindrle" explained
t i our faticfactinu and made lo appear
on the bill. Ho then promlned to bring
he various bills to tho committee for
heir inupcutiuii, and, on the cecond day
terwanN, did so.
On oMiiiiluation of the several bills
paid by the company, wu llnd thu Item
of MiinlrteH to be an they now Ktaud ex
plained on tho bill which ha been
changed fr that purpose. Theso sun
dries aro fur coal, hauling tWelr enginu by
hor-e.s from thu river aft r tilling cl.

m aji; aeldii eto , for cleaning apparatus
ami hose; nails Used in putting down tho
new lloor in thu engine house; coal oil
ami .lalirlcatln' fi lis necessary in tlic
wnrkiut of tho engine all of which aro
in nil liuslnc-xH traiiHactiotiH where
money Id to be paid out, thu party who
payH lias a right to objuut to any portion
of a hill which may neem unreasonable.
Tho Flnnnce Committee, by ordinance,
are unfortunately, in this ease, constitu
ted the agent of the city to criticize
the Items of this hill. This Is a thank
ler-s olllce, ttb wu havo already found,
but as we are determined that our con
duct, according to our bent Judgment,
tdiall, In thu words of tho Arab resolu
tion, bo ''characteristlo of that which the
citizens of this city are entitled to at thu
handy of thosu who havo been elevated
to thu position of public Hervants,'' we
intend to do our duty, as, from our
Htand point, wu understand It. If
the city liad no voice In tho matter, an
insolent demand for payment of a bill,
n ndc cut In any manner which suited
he ('Illinium's hiimoi, would huvo Hume
weight, and I lit threat which mightne
company Mich demand would perhaps
be heeded. Fortunately thu ordinance
gives the eity a right to be heard also,
Yotii committee tin rehire, Imvlnu' tliN
duty liiipocil upon it-, havo carefully
examined the IiIIIh as fiiruUhed us, and
lecoinmciid their payment except in re
gard to two items. One of these hems
Is a combination of several items of the
bill of expense, but U for only ono object
namely tlio gleaning and furbishing
of thu lioso and upparatus, amounting
In nil, (counting acids, mercurial oint
ment, &c, mentlonod In tholr Itemized
bill of Mindrloi,) to tho sum of (S3,0")
ol:,'hly-flve dollaw nud filxty-fivo cents.
This amount Is, to our opinion much
larger than Is nece.iiiry according to our
construction of the ordinance which
contemplates only the actually nccc&mry
expellees for working and repairing the
We bellero that (S-io) furtv-five dol
lars sliouiu Oesullicietit to keep tin; a
paratu.s in as good order as Is necessary,
and if the compain deslrcH to havo it
polished to an extraordinary degree, hi
oilier 10 mitKo a snow at parades and nn
niversaries, wo uelievo they should pay
for the extra labor themselves.
The other exception to which we refer
is mo salary or tho secretary. Tho Arab
Fire Company In addition to its public
character has a private organization for
thcDurp iseofbenelitlrigitsowii mem hern,
and with this the public ban nothing to
uo, anu rrom wuich they receive no
benefit. His this private pari of their
organization which) necessitates thu use
of salaried secretary, as thu public
ou."iness ot oilier lire companies can be,
and i.s Iran-acted by volunteers, and re-
quires ho little of their tlmo ;tlmt wo
liavu nuveryut heard of a demand for
a (-alary to this olllcer In other eompaii
Ick in the city.
We therefore recommend thut, instead
oi inu present uemanu for iin,li
thu city shall Issue to tho Arab
I' Ire Company scrip to tho cash value of
tbno hundred and eighty-six dollars
and idxty-two cents, thu market value
ofclty scrip on thu day of issue to bu.takeii
in determining the amount.
l our committee hog leave further to
report that tho prctunt trouble In regard
lo the bills, Is all ciujmmI by tho fact that
the ordinance In regard to thu matter
was not drawn tin uccordiinr to tho re
commendation ol the committee which
prcpoed it. We therefore recommend
thai the words "workliiL' and." which
Immediately precede the words "repair
ing engines,'" etc., ou stricken out. This
will iijuKe the ordinandi In accordance
with Its original intention, and cut oil
all cause of disputes. w
