The Inspection of thr flro department
houses of the city was completed yes
terday afternoon bv the city olllclnls.
The houses visited were Liberty, Nla-fe-aia.
Excelsior and Cumberland, of
Providence; Cieneral I'lnnney, of Green

In the Inspecting party wero Mayor

John Nelson and Dr. Sltterly, the vet
eilnary surgeon who has charge o the
horses of tho fire department.
All of tho members of the Inspecting
party expressed themselves as highly
pleased with the condition of the de
railment. The buildings bore ovidence
of having good care tnken of them,
and the dlbclpllne of the men was gen
Tho first place visited yesterday was
the house of the Liberty Hose company
on West Market street, Providence. It
Is a two story brick structure
owned by the city, and was erect
ed about seventeen years ago. It
Is occupied Jointly by the Liberty and
Niagara companies and In tho base
ment Is the North End police station.
The sanitary ariangementsof thewhole
building are bad, but the police station
Is In n particularly deplorable condi
tion, as it receives a large quantity of
the dltt that cornea dripping down from
the Doors above. The stone runways
loading into both houses Is In such a
condition that some danger Is attend
ant on the removal of the apparatus
from the houses.
The members of the fire department
committees of councils decided to have
the runways repaired and make some
other necesary Impiovements about the
building. They wlli recommend that
one of tho companies be removed from
the building and the police station mov
ed up to the first floor. The present po
lice station Is a disgrace to the city.
It Is not likely that any change of con
sequence can be made until an appro,
prlatlon ordinance provides money for
Valentine Blrtley Is the permanent
man of the Liberty company and the
company has two horses and a hose
wagon which needs repairs. On the
test exhibition Mr. Blrtley got the
hotses and wagon out of tho house In
23 seconds. William Eldrldge is per
manent man of the Niagara company
and has two hoises and a hose reel to
care for. The latter is a somewhat an
tiquated affair. Mr. Eldrldge got the
apparatus outside of the house In 21&
seconds. Faster time would have been
made In both houses If the doors had
opened more rapidly after the auto
matic spring was pulled.
The second stop made by the Inspect
ing party was at the Excelsior hose
house on Oak street. It is a two story
brick structure and Is owned by tha
city. It Is kept In first class condition
and the parlor and general meeting
room on the second floor are very taste
fully furnished. Michael May Is the
permanent man and he has two noise
and a hos reel under his care. He got
them out of the building on the official
test in 22 seconds, but as one of the
springs of the door did not work prop
erly he was allowed to make another
trial and succeeded in getting the ap
paratus out of the house In 18 seconds.
Twenty-two seconds was the ofllclal
time, however. The company is the
largest In the city and haB on Its roll
forty active and forly-IHe associate
members. Michael Clark Is foreman
of tho company and Thomas Duggau
and M. J. Walsh asclstant foremen.
The Excelsior company wants a
combination hose wagon and chemical
engine and It was the opinion of the
Inspecting party that it should have it.
It was decided to place a hot water
heater in the building as soon as pos
sible to heat it and furnish hoe water
for the bath rooms. The committee
will also recommend that the stable
which Is now In the building be re
moved to an annex to be erected in the
rear. The company has a team of
black horses which was placed with
It by Horse Dealer Frank Cobb pend
ing the becurlng of a suitable team.
That was more than a year and a half
ago and the black horses are still with
the company, although they have not
been accepted by either the city or the
company. Councilman Gordan pro
poses to make a strong effort to compel
Mr. Cobb to at once furnish horses that
will be satisfactory to all persons con
cerned and remove the team of blacks.
Up on West Market street near the
city line the next stop was made at
the barn-like structure occupied by the
Cumberland Hose company. It is a
two story wooden structure owned by
Michael Healey and Is about as com
fortless as could well be imagined.
James Hopkins Is the permanent man
and a hose reel and one horse consti
tute the outfit of tho company. On
the trial test yesterday Mr. Hopkins
got tho apparatus out of the house in
The city owns a lot C9xl20 on tho
opposite side of West Market street
and about one hundred yards south of
he present quarters on which a per
manent home for the Cumberlands is
to be erected.
Building Inspector Nelson has pre
pared plans for the structure which
cost about $3,000. Already $1,000 of
that amount has been appropriated by
councils. Mr, Nelson's Idea Is to erect
a frame structure that can be occupied
by tho company and has planned It
in such shape that a veneering of brick
can' afterwards be placed outside the
woodwork. The city engineer on Mon
day gave grade lines for tho proposed
After leaving Providence the Inspect
ing party crossed over to Green Ridge
ind viewed tho premises of tho Gen
eral Phlnney Engine company. The
ulldlng is a two-story frame structure
lyned by the city and is well adapted
tthe needs of the company. The land
onVvhlch the building is located Is
ownv by the Delaware and Hudson
omnany. The company ha two
fciuium,. men. irorfice Altlmoua and
La France steamer, the
only one In the department by tho way,
a hose reel and three horses. On tho
test the hose reel was taken but of tho
house In 21 seconds and the engine ill
26 seconds. Some changos about tho
stable will bo recommended by tho
members of tho fire department com
mittee'. The company has a neatly
fitted up meeting room and combina
tion parlor and bunk room on the sec
ond floor. From Green Ridge the par
ty proceeded to Petersburg, whore they
inspected tho quarters ot thf Relief
company in a building owned by
IS AN EXCEPTION.
The Relief Is the only hoso company
In the city that has two permanent
men. They are IkjuIs Farber, tho driv
er and Jacob Freafl, hoscman. Tho
apparatus of the company consists of
a first-class hose wagon which, is drawn
by one of tho best trained teams of
horses In the dcpartm'ent. On the ex
hibition test the apparatus was taken
out of the houso in seventeen and
three-fourths B"econds. At a special
test later the apparatus wan taken out
In seventeen seconds. Tho Relief com
pany owns all of the furnishings of tho
house. Thtt tiulldlng Is at present
lighted by kerosene oil but at a confer
ence between the owner, George Far
ber, and the fire department commit
tees yesterday he agreed to place elec
tric lights In the building and lower
the floor. At present the driver of the
hose wagon cannot sit up stralg'ht
on the scat wh'llo tho wagon is in the
The Inspection ended with the exam
ination of the Relief quarters and the
inspecting party was then entertained
by Councllmcn E. F. Wenzel.
Mayor Bailey expressed himself as
highly pleased with the Inspection.
Miany improvements wero plainly nec
essary and should be made as soon as
possible, ho said, but he was much
gratified et the excellent sh'owlng made
by the permanent men at each house.
They showed an aptitude for the work
and the discipline was excellent. Fred
Durr, chairman of the fire department
committee of select council, was also
much pleased with the condition of the
jlre department as shown by the in
fcpection. MR. ZEIDLER'S OPINION.
"The discipline of the department is
now better than it ever was before and
I bellevei the department was never
near as efficient as It Is today," was
the way Chairman Zeldler, of the com
mon council fire department commit
tee, expressed himself. He said that
about 2,000 feet of hose was recently
ordered, but that at least 3,000 feet
niore Is necessary to get the depart
ment even moderately well supplied.
A great portion of that now In use Is
old and rotten and unfit for use.
The apparatus of the department,
Mr. Zeldler said, Is In fairly good shape
but some of the wagons and hose reels
need overhauling and repainting. He
said they will recommend, a barn and
a sliding pole for the Excelsior com
pany. WATCHMAN, WHAT OF THE N1QHT.
Subject of Evangelist Crlttenton's
Discourse Last Night.
Evangelist Charles N. Crlttenton de
livered his final sermon at the aimory
last evening on the theme "Watchman,
What of the Night?" This evening at
Elm Park church a farewell meeting
will bo held. Mr. Crlttenton then will
have completed his work In this city.
Last night the attendance was large
and the meeting proved very fruitful
In the matter of respondents to Mr.
Crlttenton's words. He spoke of the
night of the soul. All Is dark thero
without Jesus, the "light of the world."
Shall the nlgh't be frightened by his
presence? Though Mr. Crlttenton is
an Interesting and successful public
speaker, yet his most effective work
Is done after the regular meeting, at
the prayer meeting. Last night he
moved about from person to person
4n the audience, pleading with them.
Mr. Crlttenton was assisted by a
number of Christian workers. These
would time after time lead some cap
tive to the "mercy seat" In the front
of the armory. Led by Mr. Wallace
the audience sang meanwhile.

Attorney D. B. Rcploglc's 110,000
damage suit agnlnst Arthur Frothing
ham for false Imprisonment was called
to talal before Judge Edwards yester
day afternoon In the main court room.
Mr. Replogle and Mr. Frothlngham,
in Mny, 1S93, hod some trouble over a
Judgement note. Mr. Frothlngham
laid complaint before Alderman Millar
that Mr. Replogle was withholding from
him Illegally $125 and tho alderman
thereupon Issued a warrant for Mr.
Replogle's arrest, charging embezzle
ment. Mr. Replogle was taken before
the alderman, but Mr. Frothlngham
faired to appear and after continuing
the case three times and the accuser
not putting In an appearanco the nl
derman dismissed tho case. Mr. Rep
logle refused to enter ball at first but
after being committed to tho county
Jail he changed his mind and agreed to
enter ball. He was paroled on his
own recognizance. For th'ls arrest ho
Alderman W. S. Millar took tho
stand and from his docket read the
various entries he made in connection
with the case. He was not sure as
to whether or not Mr. Frothlngham
had directly preferred tho charge of
embezzlement, but his impression was
that he had. At all events the war
rant charged embezzlement.
MR. REPLOOLE'S STORY.
Mr. Rplogle testified that on May
S, 1893, at 9.30 o'clock. In the morning
Constable" J. L. Rocsler, came to his
ofilco and placed him under arrest by
virtue of a warrant in which, he was
charged by Arthur Frothlngham with
embezzlement. He accompanied the
constable to the alderman's office but
Mr. Frothlngham was not there. He
waited until 10 o'clock, the hour set
for the hearing and when the prose
cutor still remained away he demand
ed that he be discharged. The alder
man refused and continued the cose
until 2 o'clock p. m. of the same day.
Again Mr. Replogle was on hand and
again his accuser failed to put in an
The alderman set 10 o'clock of the
following morning for the hearing
promising to havo Mr. Frothlngham on
hand. Hut Mr. Frothlngham oncd
more foiled to show up. Once more
there was a continuance until 2 o'clock
p. m. and once more Mr. Frothlngham
failed to respond. Thereupon the al
derman dismissed the case and dis
charged Mr. Replogle from custody.
A& a result of this arrest and the
publicity which It was given, Mr. Rep
logle says he was greatly Injured In
his reputation and business and caused
no end of mental anxiety. He could
not walk a block on the street but
Eome one would accost him with "Hel
lo! I thought you were in Jail," or
some such remark. His wife's rela
tives up In Susquehanna county heard
of it and Imagining that it was true
that he was In Jail and that he was
guilty of embezzlement made a great
deal of trouble for both him and Mrs.
LOSS TO HIS BUSINESS.
His business he estimated was Injured
to the extent of $100 a month for six
months or longer, and he says he lias
not yet fully recovered from the loss of
public confidence and other dire and
hurtful consequsnees of the arrest.
Tl.e dtf;nse was outlined to the Jury
Ju&t before'ndjournment by Mr. Lowry.
Mr. Replof le negotiated a loan of ?IC0
for Mr. Frothlngham, taking as se
curity Mr. Frothlngham's note, and as
collateral security a contract which
Mr. Frothlngham had with Professor
J. Frank Slegel for the rent of the thea
tre. It Is alleged that Mr. Replogle
collected $107 from Professor Slegel on
tho conract and also entered up thf
note which Mr. Frothlngham had to re
deem at the sheriff's office. This, It Is
alleged, was probable causit for the ar
test. The i harge that Mr Frothlng
ham accused Mr. Replogle specifically
of embezzlement the defense disavows.
The aldcrm&n was told tho na".re of
the complaint and he, it Is claimed, made
the charge that ot embezzlement. Mr.
Torrey and Mr. Olver represent Mr.
Replogle. Mr. Lowry unassisted de
fends Mr. Frothlngham.
Testimony of a very spicy nature was
brought forward by the defense In the
"Sons of America" cute to prove that
J. U. Hopewell was the owner of the
Providence Register and not merely
the paid agent of W. C. Tunstall. Ex

MR. HOPEWELL'S CARD.
The campaign circular in which
Hopewell announced his cundldacy for
county auditor and In which he Inci
dentally referred to the work he had
done for his party with "my paper"
during the past seventeen years was
also presented as an evidence of his
ownership of the Register. At the
former trial of the case Judge Archbald
icfused to admit the card on the
ground that campaign circulars don't
go for much at any rate, and that In
this particular case there was nothing
In the card that referred to tho Provi
dence Register direct. In granting a
new trial, however, he said he erred in
not admitting the card.
The case will be given to the Jury
this morning. Mr. O'Brien made the
closing address for the defense and
Mr. Ross for the plaintiff.
Arlgonl Ferdlnando, hotel keeper,
contractor and banker, was defendant
In a suit before Judge Edwards yes
terday morning. Pasquale Gellottl and
A. Gellottl said they gave him $16 to be
sent by draft to their friends in Italy,
and that the money was never receiv
ed. They had no proof, however, that
the money had not been received and
the Judge directed a verdict for the de
fendant. In the case of the Arcade File works
against T. F. Leonard the Jury yester
day morning brought In a verdict for
the plaintiff In the sum of $280.G6.
The Von Storch case Is still slowly
progressing bef&re Judge Archbald In
the superior court room. The defend
ants have not yet finished their side of
the case and possibly will not for two
days or more.
