OFFICIAL INQUIRY IBT0
FALSE ALARM OF FIRE
Charles Hastings, chief of-the fire
department, and Mr. I'nverforth. local
manager fcr the Central I'nion Tele-
pii( ne company, conducted an official
inquiry this morning at the central
ottiee of the telephone company in an
elTort to locate the origin of the false
alarm sent to the fire department
Sunday. Feb. 14. resulting in a wild
goose chase oer the city for the fire
companies in a vain endeavor to find
the supposed fire. The operators were
iiesti ned closely, but none could tell
anything that would tend to explain
away the mystery. Chief Hastings in
sists that the call was received over
the Central wires, but the operators
state that if it did it passed without
their knowledge, and further that
this would be impossible unless the
wires were tapped at some outside
point. Thus, fliplomnticnlly speaking,
the incident is closed, but Chief Hast
ings declares he will keep up the in
vestigation until he is able to place
the bin me where it belongs.
