Only a few of the business men of Douglas were present at the flre de partment meeting last Saturday night, j Some people never have any use for the fire boys until their house gets on fire, just .like some folks never have tony use for God and religion until they come die. It is expected that the next meeting, on November 25th, will be held in the new A. L. U. hall, when a big time is plauned. Don't make any other engagement for that night. With the coming of winter, it may be expected that the fire department will have more work to do. Douglas people can help the department by re mem beriug that it is easier to prevent a fire than put it out. Some of the citie ? of the States have established a bureau of fite prevention, with power to enforce regulations. Most of our citizens have complied with the chim ney ordinance, ail others should ? be sides taking all other possible precau tions to prevent fires, aud not wait until the marshal comes around. Some busy body has evidently in formed the Indians of Douglas that they are raised from their former low state to the level of the white man, in which exalted position they are eutitled to buy all the whiskey they want and get as drunk as they please. Burden ed with this delusion some of them broke loose about a week ago and be gau making the rounds of the saloons, where, when refused the .drinks they expected to buy, they would fly iuto a violent passion aud tell the barkeep that he was auythiug but a gentleman and a scholar, lu some cases bands of four or five Indians have been accom panied by a white man, who, after lin ing them all up at the bar would call for driuk-i for the crowd, claiming they were all his friends. When refused and told to hit the high places, he also would begin to harangue the saloon niau iu language choice, but unexpur gated. Of course, everybody knows that this thing cannot; continue, or, if it doe^, there will be trouble. Friends of the Indian people should explaiu to them that the law has not been chang ed, and they are not entitled to booze any more than they ever were.
