THE ROCK TSLAXD ARGUS. THURSO A Y, FEBRUARY 0, 1911.
NEW FIRE ALARM
SOON TO OPERATE
Fifty-two Call Boxes to Bs
Stationed Within Limits
of the City.
NINE IN BUSINESS PART
Instantaneous Registering With De
partment. Police Headquarters
The Gamewell fire alarm system
which is being installed here is rap
idly nearing completion. City I.ec
trician William McNealy stated yester
day afternoon that in all probability i:
will be In operation throughout the
entire city by Feb. 21. Most of the
work in the west half of the city is
completed, and a gang of men are now
at work laying the underground cables?
which connect with the alarm boxes
in the business district and In the east
half of the city. The system, when
working, will be one of which Rock
Inland may well be proud. It include -

out so that one can be reached within
a "block or two from any point in the
city. In the immediate business dis
trict, where ziaturally the greaustpre
cautions are necessary, the boxes arc
close together. There are nine of
them between Fifteenth and Twentieth
HOW SYSTEM WOBK.
The working of xi.e new system is
most inu-resiing. Suppose a fire
breaks out in any part of the city
The first one to discover it should
hurry to the nearest box, and Lttle
trouble ought to be experienced in
finding the nearest one, for they will
be in conspicuous places and will be
painted red so as to attract the eye.
t'pon reaching the bax the small glass
window in the front of it is broken
and the lever is given a turn.
that is to say, it is
down and then let go
tarts the mechanism of the box to
working. This mechanism transmit
the alarm simultaneously to the three
different fire stations, to. the water
works and to the police station, regis
tering at each place the number of th
box from which the alarm was sent,
and leaving no room for a mistake aa
to the fire's location.
MAKES EVERYTHING READY.
The system does more, however,
than merely transmit the alarm. At
the fire stations the lights arc turnij
on throughout the entire building, a
bell Is set ringing, the doors to ih
horses' stalls are automatically open- ;
ed, and when the firemen jump out of
their beds (in case It is at night) ev
erything is in readiness. Ail they
have to do is to drop the harness over
the horses, which are in place in front
of the wagons, and away they all go.
With a system such as this the ci'i -
,ens can be assured of prompt service. ;
There will be no need for waiting one i
hour, as has been true in some
before the alarm cn be turned in
the te!ephon and then have the fir? ;

house and later was taken to Daven
port and placed in jail. Edward Roehm
was arrested last night after a
search of the rooms at 51S13 Main
street, which were occupied by the
Roebtns. and a largp amount of leather

men have been issued by Cnited
States Commissioner Bush and a fed-
eral otficer from Pes Moines will ar-1

The thefts were first brought to the
attention of the authorities by officers
of the Daveuport Iron and Metal com
nanv to whom the Roebms had sold
some articles which were recognized
as government property. The search
of the rooms which they occupied last
night revealed a large amount of
rough articles Valuable pieces of
chamois leather and sole leather, small
pieces of brass and copper, were found, j
The whole weighs more than one nun-;
Ulred pounds which indicated that the j
'stealing had been going on for a long i
oeriod. It is the supposition that
Louis Roehm carried the articles home
after each day s work. All of the stol
en goods have been taken to the Dav

Neither of the men denied the
! charges which were made against;
Neither would they admit their

was prepared to receive them kindly.
After two months' trial the of

pay-as-you-entera are more -ad1v

the Idea of having their fares ready,
hand over their nickU a when they
reach the step of the cars on the Third
