Councilman Barclay, at the last meet
lug of the Select Council, submitted to
the board tho following resolution, which
was adopted, viz:
Resolved, That the ordinance commit
tee, be instructed to report an ordlmuico
appropriating a speciuo amount to each
lire company, in iieu of quarterly allow,
ances now belnir paid them, to Ik paid
in regular insiuiinienis.
This resolution, In Its Instructions to
the committee, is rather Indeftlnlte. If
we understand It, the ohject is to give,
once for all, a sum of money say $.1,000
to each of tho fire companies, payable,
for instance, .T 0 down, and tho balatice
In six, twelve and eighteen month.
This would boa movement worthy of all
commendation if tho city could bo fur
nished with any assurance that at the
end of the eighteen months the com
panics would not ask for auntherspeclflc
sum. But tho resolution says, that the
proposed appropriation is to he made In
lieu of quarterly allowances now being
paid. If wo have not received Incorrect
Information on tho subject, no quarterly
allowances aro now given to tho com
panies, Under tho ordinances, as now
written, the ajdty Is pledged to pay tho
current running expenses of the Arab
mid Rough and Ready companies, they
to be allowed to determine what tiioso
expenses shall bo and to make out
their owi bills. Quarterly allowances
are much to be preferred to this system.
They are cheaper. Rut the fact Is, the
Council should be luiormed of a fact In
this connection, which seems to have
