FIRE ALARM 18 FAULTY.
CM.IC 111? t Bays aa Imaaadlata Bemad y
is assess rr.
The alarm system of the Bock
Island fire department is oat of
gear, and Chief Collier is cast,
ing about for a remedj. The
blunder occasioned by faulty regis
tration at the Central house the day
of the telephone exchange tire, when
the department was called to the
vicinity of Lincoln school, furnishes
an idea of what is liable to happm if
the system is sllowed to remain in
its present condition.
Chief Collier has been communi
cating with thu Gamewell company,
of Chicago, which installed tue Book
Island system, in relation to the
mattor. Tho Gamewell folks had a
representative here last summer and
he did what he could toward
straightening things cit, and now
hey seem to be of the opinion that
the only way to remedy the system
is to increase the equipment and
make tMM improvements. They
say the difficulty is the consequence
of the alarm apparatus being in too
close proximity to Ihe electrical
wires which are strung aboat the
city. Taie, it is said, impedes the
force of the alaim, and ihu result is
The tire alarm is lir.-t sent to no-
lice headquarters, wh re thu number
of tne box is register d cn a ribbon.
It is transferred to the department
where the numb. : is de$iguated by a
clock register. Chief Collier's i!ea
is to either add the ribbon register,
60 that the number of the box will
show twice, or else connect the three
houses and polico heaViartcrs with
an ludcptmae&t telepboue system.
