reason. one of these l-.-gisl.-i livi
idiohyncractes cropped out Tiicsdai
night. Two months ago three fir.- com
missioners were chosen. Mr. .1. A
Hlrshberg, wlio had been an exc.-p
tlonally valuable member of Ii.I?
board, was unanimously re-elected
Soon afterward Mayor Moss discover

board of fire commissioners had in

well informed men the mayor wa

that he was wrong. At any rate,
order to fortify tin- city against a
complication that mich- arise. 1
council adopted a new ordinance ere:
ing a board of fir.- commissionc
Then, as a matter of form, it bccai
necessary to elect its members. This
-.".?lection look place Tuesday night. Two
of tin- new commissioners were se?
lected from tlie old hoard, while Mr.
D. C. Ashby was chosen as the third.
Mr. Hirshberg's name was not men?
tioned.
That Mr. Ashby is an estimable
gentleman and one well qualified for
the dlities of tin- office to winch he
was elected is conceded by every one
who knows Inn. But even .Mr. Ashby
loes not understated, ami nobody else
seems to understand, why Mr. Ilirsh
>erg was so unceremoniously dropped.
The council unquestionably had the
right to elect Mr. Ashby or anybody
?lse if it saw fit lo do so, hut in view
if Mr. Hirshberg's invaluable services
.s a member of the old board, ami of
he fact that two of his associates tv<
??e-eleeted. it is passing strange that
lie should be sii|.planted by a le w en
missioner.
We hazard nothing in staling, a
we believe our assertion will he hoi
.ut by ali who have served as f
?ommissioners in Newport News, that
Mr. Hirshberg was the most active
:ind useful member the board ever had.
'?'his can he said without detracting in
:he least from the records of other
.entlemen win. have served in the
aim- capacity. He is also a public
pirited citizen who always identifies
'ilmself with every movement to pro
note the city's welfare.
To be sure, the position of fir,, com?
missioner in New p..rt New s is not such
great thing. The office has no
emoluments, and the honor is not
vorth the captious criticism to which
ven tlie most ex.ell.-nt commissioner
? s subjected. But these facts are not
iertinent to he question we have asked,
it seems to us that in electing a new
ommissioner in Mr. Hirshberg's stead
ihe council has been guihy of Iu?
ra titude for public services faith
?illy performed. Why was Mi. Hirsh?
berg dropped?
FREE RELIEF SUPPLIES.
The President's order providing for
the free admission of all food supplies
intended for relief work among the tv
conecntrados at the ports held by the
American forces is a Just and humane
decree. The United States government
is too wealthy to need a tax wrung
from the starving peasants who have
so long groaned beneath the tyrannical
sway of their Spanish taskmaster.
