BRUSH FIDES SI OFFICIALS TO TAKE ACTION Special to the BVKN1NO NEWS. Tottenville, Nov. β:—Brush flres in all sections of the Island are be coming so frequent and the engines are called out on many occasions, leaving residential and business sec tions unprotected, that the authori ties are about to take more stringent action to put a stop to the burning pf leaves in streets, yards and fields of the borough. Deputy Chief Wil liam Beggln and Fire Marshal Wil liam F. Emerson are making every effort to stamp out the practice where a large piece of woodland is maliciously set on Are by some one throwing a lighted match or a cigar ette. The penalty for starting a fire of this kind and endangering life and property is ten years in prison. Dur ing the past month of the 130 fires on the island, 103 of the alarms were for brush flres. In a number of cases some building has caught Are from a spark and the structure has burned to the ground. Fifteen vol unteer flre wardens have been named on the island who are doing patrol duty and if any one is caught setting flre to brush they will be severely dealt with according to law. Last week the flre marshal arrest ed η man at Llnoleumville for setting flre to his own field, but when the case came up before Magistrate Marsh In the second district court he was discharged because it was proven he did not do tt with any intent to destroy property. Three big brush flres on this end of the island yesterday afternoon kept the firemen busy for some time keeping the flames from doing any dnmage to buildings nearby. At Eitlngvlile the* flre extended for more than a mie and the two in Tot tenville, one in Centrai avenue near the water works In the afternoon, and the other one laet. night in Beach street, left the business section un protected here for some time while the two companies were out fighting 'he brush fires.

I conjure you to believe me. fellow citizens, the jealousy of a free people ought to constantly awake, since history and experience prove that for eign influence is one of the most bane ful foes of republican government. Eu rope has a set of primary Interests which to us have none or a remote re lation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must bu unwise in us to Implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissi tudes of her politics or the ordinary combinations and collusions of her friendships or enmities. Old English Slave*. Before tbe conquest and for a lonir time after at least two-thirds of the people of England were denuded of all the substantial attributes of freedom: The lords had the absolute disposal of them. They might be attached to the soli or transferred by deed, sale or con veyance from one lord to another. They could not chance their place or hold property In short, they were slaves under their obligation of per petual servitude, which tbe consent οt the master alone could dissolve. The syetem was not fairly abolished until the reign of Charles II.. and so late a» 1775 men were bought and sold ljx Scotland with the estates to which they were bound.
