OUR NET FIRE SYS1EM.
Something i.boot the Workings of
the C amewell Alarm.
AVUUtotliKrKl.e Bobbb at Fee.
imt Tif-The er ,
Uiffereat Bxe aa Their
Very few p rhaps. of the many people
who view vith gratification the Rreat
change that beinR wrought in the man
agement of a fire in Rock Island, and
who admire the promptness, ard appear
ance of the pt id department in getting
out. realize that the run to the fire is not
half as impor ant as the time consumed
in getting out and under way. Every
second after the alarm ia received is of
the utmost ImDortance in an enginehouse,
and to avoid this hundreds of different
devices have been patented to save a
moment's tim or the firemen an extra
step. The Gimewell system, which is
the one to be used in Rock Island, is
equipped with all the latest devices for
the saving of time and labor, and when
in complete operation will be second to
none in the couutry. The Gamewell
company is now almost ready to turn
the system o er to the city, but there are
a ime details vet to be arranged before it
will be put in operation, as the company
does not wieL to have any trouble with it
after it is once in working order, but
it is now tl oogbt that the public will
have the bent fit of the system late next
week. The system includes three indica
tars to register the location of the box
from which tae alarm is turned in. One
of these has teen placed in the teulral
engine house, one in the police station
and the other ia the waterworks, and af
ter the introc uction of the new system
the waterwotks will blow the number of
the box from which the alarm is received
so that the public generally will have a
belter knowledge of the exact location
of the fire.
For instance, if the alarm came from
box S3, the waterworks would indicate it
by blowing three short blasts with a
pause and then two blasts, which would
indicate box 33 5
The instant the hook is pulled at an
alarm box it registers the number of the
box in an indicator, striking the gong in
the central house, and automatically
opening the doors to the horse stalls
An Argcs reporter, who visited the
Central engine bouse at noon today, was
surprised ax d gratified at the headway
that is being mde in the way of training
the horses for prompt action and the
manner ia which every minute de'.ail
about the hoose is looked after.
A few moments before.12 o'clock two
firemen stationed themselves in front of
each truck. At a given signal from Chief
Ramskill, t ie gong sounded, the doors
to the horses stalls fl :w open and both
team3 ran out of their stalls under the
harness in a manner that r. fleets great
credit on those who have them in charge,
aDd would do credit to much older de
partments. The collars were snapped
about the necks and they were kept there
while two otjerfiremen put the feed into
their boxes, i.fier which they were un
hitched and backed into their stalls, as
they are not allowed to turn around, nor
do tbey even seem to wish to, as they
back in as willingly as if tbey had always
been used to it. They are never fed in
anyway except this, it being done in
order to make tbem keep it constantly in
mind, and waen they are fed in this man
ner it is an inducement for them to come
out in a hurry.
The firemen are nearly all uniformed
now. Chief liamskill has anew white hel
met and coat which are very flashy.
With a few weeks' practice with the new
system, r,o citizen of Rock Island will
need to ene&t back in an alley in shame
when he hears a fire alarm for fear some
stranger in town will guy him about the
fire departmi nt.
The location of the different alarm
box -8 and their numbers is given below:

A certain bank cashier and society
young man bad an experience at the C,
R. I. & P. ticket offije last night that
practically demonstrated to him the value
of that true and trite saying that "its
never safe to monkey with the band
wagon unless you can play a horn. Hav
ing business at the C, R. I. & P. depot
lite last niht he sauntered into the ticket
office where he espied an innocent looking
gas stove. The atmosphere being some
what frigid and the night ticket agent
being busy, he of the money vaults con
cluded it would be ebout the proper caper
to start the fire, and in come wsy got the
idea in bis bead that it worked on the
principle of a nickel in the slot machine,
so lighting a match be dropped it into the
insignificant looking little thing and im
mediately there was a sound as if a dozen
"infernal machines" had been touched off
at once, and the air was filled with flying
sheet iron, ising glass and bank ca-hiers,
and when quiet was restored a few min
utes after, and those about the depot bad
been convinced that there bad been no
dynamite explosion, it was found that no
one was seriously injured though the
deft fingered cashier is today counting
out money left handed.

One of the property holders who would
be most affected by the proposed im
provement of East and West Seventeenth
street, of Sixteenth and of Fmeentn
First to Third avenue 3, urged
representative of The A rods the other
day, that a continual agitation cf the im
provements ou'lined be maintained. The
paving of those 6treets is the only thing
necessary now to practically complete
the business portion, and all are impor
tant thoroughfares of travel. E ist. and
West Seventeenth ought really to have
been included in the Maiket square con
tract. Their present appearance gives a
ragged edge to popular improvement, and
it should be taken off, while Fifteenth
and S xtenth the latter street running
past the goyernment building site should
also be paved early in the spring.
The council ought to order the ord
nances drawn and the necessary prelim
inaries in court attended to soon, so that
the contract may be let and the work en
tered Upon as soon as the weather and
other conditions will permit in the spring.
