THE HOCK ISIiANU ARGUS. TUESDAY, JULY 30, 1889.
The Katerprla of the Yslsmteer.
The rraaklltm.taUnlB. rhrralx an4
Tbe firemen of this city are wide-awake
and are in the way of betterment, bat
which cannot be comprehended by the
people of the city who da not mingle
with the men who moke up the rank and
file of the membership of the department.
Their ambition to outward appearances
and actual work, goes on the line of
doing a little better than the Height oring
companies. The Franklin hose com
pany was the starter, the Cable company
was the? second in the field, its hose
wagon is housed and pid tor. The city
was to the expanse of $30 in payment tor
a stall for the horse. The Gilpin hose
company of the Seventh ward, were the
next on the list. This company Las a
horse and harness, but no curt suitable
for horse service. The members of the
compan) are willin? to take the two
wheeled Franklin curt, but cannot for
some reason make the dicker. The cart
outside of the improvement is owned by
the city, and the Franklins justly think
that the city should cnnwosiIe them for
their outlay in remodeling it from a drag
rope to it horse pulling cart.
The boys of Phoenix No. 1 say their
birn is complete ami trie hose wagon
which is ordered and paid for will be in
service in less than three weeks. They
have appointed a committee to purchase
a horse. The committee has visited nu
merous patties with horses for sale, but
on inspection did not think the horses
inspected filled the bill. When one is
bought it is a mortl ceitainty thnt it will
be a flyer. The Phoenix company has
purchased two beds which will hold four
men, who will be on hand from S p. m. to
6 a. m. This four will be relieved by or.e
who w ill be on watch during the day
hours. The boys say they w ould ot
feel in the least bit offended if the citi
zens would provide them with books.
papers or other resiling matter. At the
last regular meeting it was unanimously
resolved that no intoxicants should be
brought to the hose house. Hot coffee
will be provided after every fire, with
The one thing desirable now is
the electric fire alarm. It now behooves
the city council to provide the de
lnnuieoi wun lire alarms, ir pos
sible. The manufacturers of the
lower end of the city have all their works
connected by a local fire alarm w ith the
Franklin hose house, and they see the
necessity of quick service, but do not
feel able to extend the system to Phoenix
hose house, which is the next company
in distance. There is no taxpayer who
would kick at an outlay of -f:t, ink) f,r a
fire alarm, and so long as it is a necessity
and is bound to come by spring, why not
have it this fall? It is a permanent im
provement. and one that should be pro
vided without fail.
The Holly hose company No. 5, at
their last regular meeting, by a unani
mous vote agreed to contribute all the
money they havo in the treasury $6(10
to buy a wagon and horse with other
equipments. The committee purchased
an iiron gray hor-e, weighing 1,400
pounds. The hose wagon was ordered
from the American Fire Hose company
Saturday by telegraph. The wagon is to
be delivered within forty days of signing
of contract. Tbe stall for the horse will
be placed in the rear end of the hose
house. Score No. 5 to the credit of the
volunteer fire department. The city
council should keep step with the fire
laddies and furnish a fire alarm.
The item of insurance should te taken
into consideration in connection w ith a
good fire department and a reliable fire
alarm. All cities w here there exists a
paid fire department and a fire alarm sys
tem the rate of insurance has decreased
one-half. The item of premium on in
surance policies for six months will more
than compensate the tax-payers of the
city for the outlay for the fire alarm
plant. There is no city in the country
so fortunate as this. The compinieseon
tribute out of their own savings to pur
chase what would cost the city many
dollars, and the service with the aid of
the alarm will be equal to the most

The Knma Voting Controversy.
Joslin. July 2S. I do not care to
intrude unwelcome upon your read
ers, but I. like fair play always, and
therefore ask your indulgence. The
change of the voting place in this
town is not a matter pertinent to the
present controversy, but as "Subscriber"
has lut'ged it in. apparently for two rea
sons, to advertise his ignorance and to
strike a man that he thinks is down, I
must refer to it. "Subscriber" ought to
know that the county board only has
power to establish election precincts and
appoint voting places. Therefore the
people of Zuma never voted, and cannot
vote on this question. We did once vote
on the removal of the town meeting, but
that is an entirely different thing. 1
know several citizens who opposed mov
ing the town meeting, and yet believe
Joslin to be the best place for holding the
general election. Therefore this vote
was not a correct exposition of the peo
ple's will. Joslin is not half a mile from
the east line of the town, nor is any voter
obliged to travel eleven miles in order to
vote. "Subscriber" knows this perfectly
well. The question of removal was not
presented to the board by Supervisor
Whiteside either to improve his own
political prospects, or his son's finances.
If any blame attaches to any one, pour
out your vials of wrath upon my head,
gentlemen; I had more to do with it than
No dispute was ever settled by news
paper assertion. Therefore, if any citizen
ot iCuma has teen deprived of the right
of voting by the illegal act of any elec
tion officer, the fact is capable of judicial
proof, and the guilty party should be
punished, fn file your complaints and
bring matters to a focus, or else stoo
howling about "republican rascality."
Because this town has always had a re
publican grand juryman is a very thin
excuse for letting this all go in talk.
"Talk is cheap but it takes money to buy
whisky." Only notice that the indues of
election do not have to go by "Subscriber"
or any other local politician s watch; and
that standard railroad time is not correct
for the meridian of Joslin. The varia
tion is small, but it is enough ta cut some
figure in this case.
One parting word with "Multum in
Parvo." One would suppose that a "fair
minded correspondent" would investigate
first, and write afterwards. We rejoice
that he found one republican he could
believe, and that he is satisfied Mr. White
side is not guilty of partisanship. A
careful reading of the statements pub
lished in last week's A rocs shows that
even if Mr. Swank knew of the cominir
of those tardy voters he could not have
announced it to the other judges, and
thus there could have been no collusion
lietween the judges to close tbe polls in
any unlawful manner. J. G. Osborne.

One of the most mischievous and most
common is tbe indiscriminate and too
frequent use of purgatives. Such medi
cines, if well chosen and reasonably re

persons select the worst, fly from one to
the other, and employ them when there
is no occasion, or their utility has ceased.
To establish on a permanent basis a reg
ular condition of the bowels, tbe finest
alterative is Hostetter's StomBch Bitters.
It is botanic in origin, and a safe succe
daneum for those objectionable drus,
calomel and blue pill; it does not gripe
or drench the bowels like the ordinary
cvacuents. and it not only reforms irrep
ularity of the babit of body, but remedies
the disorder and inactivity of the liver
and stomach, which usually accompany
that condition. Rheumatism, kidney
trouble, malaria complaint and nervous
nesa are removed by the BitUrs.
