FIRE ALARM TELEGRAPH.
A SYSTEM WHICH INHTANTIA
LOCATES A I IHi:,
4rent AdvanljiKes Accruing From
Such a System and I lie Small
Cost of Introducing and Main
lug It In all IarlH of the City.
A special meeting of the City Council
was held last night to considerthe advis
ability of putting up a lire alarm tele
graph system, and hear the explanations
of the mode of operation of the Game
well Fire Alarm Telegraph Company's
system as given by their represent.-! live.
Mr. J. D.Clarke, of New York City.
The lire alarm telegraph consists of a
central or battery station, the wire cir
cuits of which connect the central sta
tion wiui me street signal boxes; audi n
alarm apparatus, consisting of electro
mechanical bell strikers in church or
oilier towers, electro-mechanical gong
strikers located in engine houses, public
buildings and residences of the fire de
partment officials and indicators, show
ing in plain figures the number of the
signal box from which an alarm origi
nates. Whenever a tire occurs Ihe information
is given by signalling fioin the boxes.
I'his signal is communicated to all the
different gongs, thus giving every one
information of the fire at one and the
same time. If we suppose box No. 21 to
be operated, the way of giving the signal
is to unlock the door, then ta ke hold of a
projecting hook and pull this two suc
cessive times, then pause for live seconds,
and then give one pull. This is repeated
The manilcst advantages of such a
quick method of signalling is loo evident
to need any further comment. These
boxes are provided with keys for code
signalling. To illustrate the workings
ol this, we can look at the way il is done
in Raleigh, where this system is used.
There when the lire is out the chief of the
lire department gives information of this
to the citizens by simply going to the
box and giving three blows on a lever
which rings the various communicating
bills and gongs in the city. Also in that
place sometimes increased water pressure
is needed, and so they communicate this
fact to the water works by means of sig
nals. Thus the ordinary water pressure
in R.-.leigh is twenty pounds, but Unseat!
be increased to one hundred pounds
when needed, and the chief can obtain
greater pressure by simply signalling the
strokes 12 three times ill quick succes
sion. The system, now advocated, is in
use iu 3;to places in the Tinted State
such as Raleigh, Chattanooga, Birming
ham, Nashville, Memphis, Wilmington,
The cost of putting up this system in
Ashcville would be governed by a variety
of different items, such as the style of the
signal boxes used, and the kind of wire
employed. Of course whether the city
has to buy the poles or not would be an
other item, resulting in quite a little dif
ference in the expense. But thercare suf-li-ient
poles in the city to carry all the
wire, and it would merely nied the re
quest ol the mayor m till probability to
obtain the consent of the dilferent com
panies to allow the city to use them for
this purpose. The cost then of putting
up this system without poles would be
from $2,000.00 to $3,300.00, according
to the value of the wire used. This would
include the pulling up of fifteen signal
boxes in various parts of the city. Now
the wire may be of three diflcrcnl kinds,
the galvanized iron wire generally used
by the Western I'nion, which lasts from
ten to twelve years, the hard drawn cop
per wire, which has 110 wear out to il,
and the insulated copper wire. The last
two kinds cost from two to three limes
as much as the other. The wire itself
will cost onc-scvcnlhofthecnlircaniount
of the estimate given above.
Now as 10 the cost of keeping every
thing in good running order. This de
pends on the number of cells iu the gray
it y buttery which furnishes the electric-
it y. To furnish sufficient elcctrity for
use in this place, a battery containing
forty i-clls would he required, and the run
ning expense per year is at the rate of
from $1.00 to $1.2"i per cell, or an entire
expense of from $0.00 to $"i0.0ll. per
The strength of the battery is shown
by a galvanometer, whose indicator
should show a dcllcction of thirty de
grees when the battery is in priqwr run
ning order. It would work at twenty
seven degrees, but such a decrease would
betoken a very bail condition, and it is
in this wtiy that the necessity for any re
pairs is made known. By this means
also any break iu thc wire is indicated as
the needle of the galvanometer will then
point to zero. .

In response to a request of the Young

at several of the churches in the city ad
dressed their sermons on Sundav uar-
ticularly to young men this being the

tions all over thc country.
At the French Broad Baptist church
Dr. J. L. Carrtdl took for his text the
words: Is the young man Absalom
sale," found in the 2th and 32nd verses
of the ISth chapter of 2nd Samuel.
Dr. Carroll handled his subject with
great force, mid interest to his congre
gation ; touching on the vital importn lice
to young men of physical, mental, and
above all, ol spiritual culture; of the de
pendence of the home, thc church nnd the
State upon the growing young men of
the country, and thc necessity that they
should be started and kept in the right
path to insure thc safety ol those placet!
under their care ami protection, anil
eventually their own eternal safety.
Dr. Carroll closed with a strong state
ment of the benefits of the work done by
the Young Men's Christian Association,
mil an earnest appeal iu its behalf.
Cli.NTUAI. .MI-TlloniST ClII RCII.
Dr. G. C. Rankin, tit the 11 o'clock
service on Sunday morning, took for his
text a part of the eighth verse of the
.irst chapter of the book of Daniel:
"But Daniel purposed in his heart that
he would not defile himself with the
portion of the king's incut, nor with the
wine which he drank."
The prominent thoughts in the dis
course were that every young man and
young woman should have a purpose in
lite, and that purpose should be adhered
to under any and all circumstances. Dan
iel was a captive in a strange land ; he
had been chosen as one of the king's
household, and by order of the king la
wns to eat certain food anil drink cer
tain wines, but his early training in Jeru
salem had learned him that meat was
unlawful, having been consecrated to
idols, and the wine was not such as h'.'
ought to drink, and he purposed in his
heart that he would not defile himself
therewith. This showed principle. He
determined to do right, though far from
home and among strangers and away
from all the associations and restraints
of Ins early religious influences. He
would not do as Rome did simply be
cause he Wiis in Rome. Anotherthotiglit
was that parents should zealously instill
into the minds of their children the prin
ciples of right nnd duty, and in doing so
they could rest assured it would have its
elVect. The conduct of Daniel was a proof
of this. In the great and powerful city
of Babylon, surrounded by idolatry anil
all the temptations that could beset a
young man, he maintained his integrity,
even at that age when a young man is
most liable to be drawn away, Daniel,
at the time referred to in his text, being
between fifteen and eighteen years old.
Another thought was that God would
prosper a young man or woman who
stood by the right. Daniel became, not
withstanding the stand he took against
the orders of the king, the first man iu
the great Babylonish empire, next to lin
king. He closed by urging every young man
in his congregation to connect himself
at once with the Young Men's Christian
T KIN I TV CIIIKCII.
The Key. Dr. Buxton took for his text
from the 2nd chapter of the 1st Epistle
General of John and part of the 13th
verse: "1 write unto you. young men,
Ikc-iusc you have overcome the wicket!
one." The reverend gentleman fell into
the line of discussion which seems to have
been so generally nnd appropriately
adopted for the day, the moral and reli
gious interests of the young men. The
text chosen would indicate of itself Un
happy way ir. which the subject was
treated, because, taking the example of
Commendation given by the Apostle fin
work well done ami conquest over "thc
wicked one" the cheerful inference was
that what sonic had done so well, all
might if they choose, also do. It was
not difficult to illustrate the gain of the
conquest over passion and temptation
early in life, the assured easy power of
resistance when the first hard steps were
taken, and the thenceforward easy anil
pleasant paths of a life of virtue. It will
be difficult for any man advanced tar on
the pathway of life to look back upon it
with nny other feeling than that of sorro w
if his resistance had liecn weak and his
yielding easy ; or without profound t bank
fulness that, instead of lieing the victim,
he had lived the conqueror.
There is tremendous import iu the ex-
pression ot the Psalmist: Remember thy

Of Kdward Wefdin
The funeral of Mr. Edward Weildi
took place on Sunday at 2.30 p. m. His
death was one of the saddest that has
ever been known in Ashevillc. There was
not only the stillness that arises from
seeing any high energetic young man cut
off when he has just stepped over the
threshold of life, but that dee)cr feclin
which can only exist when founded 011
respect and esteem, and cemented to
gether by a personal love for the man
himself. As a business man, the deceased
had shown himself to be one of the most
capuuic ami promising young men in
tllis city, and one whose integrity and
ability had won the complete confidence
of his employers. As a son and brother.
he was a model for us til! and his life
though short, both has and will be pro
tint live of much good. Those who have
personally known him will never forget
him and those who have not will regret
their loss. As long as his friends live, so
long will his memory live, nnd many
others will thcreallcr learn to admire
and esteem him as one who could inspire
so strong a feeling of regard, friendship.
and cHcetion, that even the lapseof years
eon'-, in no wise weaken or impair it.
At J o clock p. m., the Knights ol
Pythias assembled at their lodge and
marched iu a hotly to the house of the
deceased in order to escort the remains
to the Episcopal church, where the funeral
services were to be held. At the church
door the Knights of Pythias formed in
double line, and stood with bare head?
while the casket containing all that was
left of their comrade and fellow
Knight was borne up thc aisle between
their ranks, by the pallbearers who were
W. C. Cnrmichnel, S. F. Chapman, F
Sticliclcathcr, A. P. Barrett, J. II. Wood
cock and W. K. I lesion.
The choir composed of J. A. Campbell
J. F. Blair, E. P. Mangun, F. A. Hull, J
B.Jenning, C. E. Hilliartl, J. T. Amis,
anil J. M. Young, sung the voluntary
"Raise me Jesus to thy bosom."
The silence in the church was almost
oppressive as the impressive hpiscopal
service for the dead was slowly and dis
tiiictly read by the Key. J. Buxton.
During the service the choir sung "Just
as 1 tun without one plea."
The large concourse of Iricnds and the
relatives then proceeded to the cemetery
where the regular service was concluded
bv the Rev. I. Buxton. Then the cere
monies were taken up and finished by
the Rev. George II. Bell, prelateof I'isgah
Lodge, No. 32, of the Knightsof I'ythias
according to the rules of the lodge.
As all the Knights sung iu chorus, "Nearer
my God to thee," each member in turn
deposited a sprig of myrtle in the grave.
Thc services were concluded with a
prayer by thc Rev. G. H. Bell.
The funeral was the largest that has
ever taken place in Ashevillc and was in
dicative ol the great esteem and love
which the community had for him. Not
only the Knights of Pythias, but also the
Carolina AtUelic Club, of which he had
been it prominent and honored member,
attended in a body.
There was a profusion of Bowers which
tender and loving hands had placed upon
the casket of one, who had been so dear
to them. Among those was a beautiful
shield of white chrysanthemums with thc
emblematic letters of the Knights of
Pythias, F. C. H., in blue yellow and red.
Many u sail face among the crowd which
was slowly wending its way homeward,
told the passerby that death had been
among us and another loved one had
been gathered to rest.

This gentleman, the "builder of towns"

pleasant call yesterday afternoon. Hav

thc wilderness. It is in Mitchell county
lying partly in the valley of Linvillc river,
and when il gets big enough will rest its
limbs on thc slopes of the adjacent sur
rounding mountains. The property at
tached to thc young town is extensive,
valuable anil beautiful. The company
owns many thousand acres ol heavily
timbered lands, cxhtiustless water power
furnished by Linvillc river, and owns
also, as one of its strikingly picturesque
features, the Grandfather and the Grand
mother mountains, two of the loftiest
and most majestic of the long Blue Ridge
chain. Throughout the whole property
the work of laying out good roads of
easy grade is being energetically pursued.
The town is small as yet, perhaps con
taining only fifteen houses, more or less;
but three steam saw mills are constantly
at work sawing out building materials,
every foot of which is to lie used on the
spot. A good hotel is finished, occupied I
nnd well kept. Streets, atlnues and
