The Fire Ieprtment.
The Union makes a poor apology for
its attack of Sunday morniog on the pid
fire department.by saying it "intended no
slur on our present excellent depart
ment." The Union's record in relation
to the paid department and other pro
gressive institutions ia too well Known
for anyone to take any stock in any fln
tery it may now bestow. The public is
too well aware of how far we would have
advanced in the direction of the present
system had the Union's course been
adopted. Its assertion that Tns Argus
is aiming at a company for every tier of
blocks in the city, it knows' to be fa'se,
and absolutely so. Thb Argus' position
has always been that the less the number
ot men in the department tbo better, so
long as all are well drilled but it believes
in giving our people all the protection that
is needed. The city has extended until the
east and west limits are eo far apart that
they cannot be reached from the center
in as quick time as if they had a company
in their respective communities, and this
they are entitled to. The larger the city
the more companies of course, and com
mon sense should teach the Union this,
and turn it from the folly of its past
record . But it don't apparently.
The Union is a calf when it comes to
