Mr. Horstman addressed the committee on behalf of the placing of a steam Ire engine in the South End, below Twenty-fonrth and north of Fortyailhth streets, calling attention to tbe wide extent of territory embraced between those tiro streels and the inflimmab!e nature of the material of wbich three-fourths of the houses are built Mr. Horstman dwelt strongly on this [act, and remarked also that there were manufactories in that region, notably Bloch Bros.' tobacco factory, which gives BDiployment to several hundred hands. Then Mr. O'Kane presented tbe claims of that part of town which calls itself tbe "Ninth ward." The houses In this neighborhood, said Mr. O'Kane, were also very inflammsple, being built mostly of wood.
