At the recent state convention here
Norfolk was Invited to take charge of
the tournament , the convention ad
journing with the question , of accept
ance still open. Local firemen are
very doubtful as to what action will
bo taken , many deeming It advisable
to drop the tournament In view of the
department having just taxed Itself
and Its members In entertaining the
state convention on an elaborate style.
Some time before the convention mot
the question of asking for the tourna
ment was before the Norfolk depart
ment. The department at that time
voted against having the tournament.
Sentiment among Norfolk business
men will probably decide the final
action. The meeting of the depart
