Councilmen to Apply Lesson Learned
From Fires.
Something la the matter with the
way the city fire system Is handled.
Members of the council are convinced
that now, snd they admit that the
lensin was a nrettv expensive one. In
the Prenderast fire, where (lie Toss
waa over 114,000 and in the Engle
fire, with a loss of over $9,000, the
water pressure was deficient when
t was most needed.
It was the Intention of the f're,
,-ater and light committee of the
council, If there had been a meeting
Monday night, to ask the firemen to
come before the council and suggest
any changes which they thought
ought to be made to the manage
ment of the system. One thing the
committee are practically agreed on,
and that Is that the advice given by
H. L. Humphrey the day after tho
Prendergast fire, and published In the
Reflector should be followed.
Air. Humphrey urged that central
be Instructed not to cut off the stand
pipe from the mains, when there was
a fire, until she bad received word
back from Sand Springe that they
had sufficient pressure on to enable
the firemen to work. He pointed
out that there Is enough wator In
the stand pipe to furnish good preM
si-re to the firemen for several nnp
utes. This view 'has proved to be
the correct one, and there Is litil
doubt that the proposed change w'll
be made at an early date.

New- Tork, Nov. 22. Postmastei
General Hitchcock at the close of a
strenuous day at the general post
office declared that the raids made
during tb day by Inspectors of the
postofflce department In conjunction
with men from Deputy Police Commis
sioner Flynn's office on the Arm ot
Burr Brothers," promoters and bank
ers and the Continental Wireless
Telephone and Telegraph company.
was only part of the crusade against
the swindling schemes the govern
ment hss been Investigating, which
during the past five years have cost
the American people over llOO.OOO.bull
or more than 120,000,000 a year. Mr.
Hitchcock added that the campaign
inaugurated would be pushed with the
utmost vigor.
Powtrful Influence Protseted.
"So powerful have been the In
fluences behind these men," said Mr.
Hitchcock, referring to the arrsat ol
Burr Brothers, that postofflce In
spectors have been afraid to go after
them. Three months ago 1 brought
Inspector Warren W. Dickson from
St. Louis and put him In charge of
the New Tork, office for the purpose
of rounding up this class of swind
lers." 1
Mr. Hitchcock when questioned, de
clined to discuss the identity of the
powerful Interests back of Burr
Brothers and with equal emphasis de
clined to give any indication of the
further arrests to be made since It
might lead to a miscarriage of Justice.
These were arrests made:
Sheldon C. Burr, president Burr
Brothers, promoters and dealers in
bonds, stocks and other securities,
in the Tombs in default ot 110,000
Eugene W. Burr secretary and
treasurer of Burr Brothers In the
Tombs In default of $10,000 ball.
Frank H. Hobny, vice-president of

Charles L. Vaughn vice-president
and treasurer of the Continental
Wireless Telephone and Telegraph

$10,000 ball.
Warrants for Others.

Preston, Formerly connected with
Burr Brothers but who Is now accord
ing to the postofflce department, con
nected with the California Consoli
dated Oil company and for the appre
hension of Charles H. Tobey, of Burr
Brothers, who It was expected would
be located in Michigan. Postmaster
General Hltctai-ock said he expected
to receive Intelligence In the morn
ing that both these men had been
taken Into custody. '
The arrest of the two Burrs and of
Frank H. Tobey were made under the
most sensational circumstances. It
had been cartfully planned by Inspec
tor Dickinson, Indiana, of. the district
and Postma'steV General ' Hitchi-ork
and Chief Postofflce Inspector Roberr
S. Sharpe came here from Washing
ton to see that it was carried out
successfully. The postmaster general
made bis, headquarters In the federal
building and arter giving careful In

tectives McMullen, Murphy and John
P. Flood sallied forth and made
