THE FARGO FORIJM AND DAILY REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY EVENING, MABCH 31, 1909.
RELIEF FUND TO
STEP8 ARE TAKEN BY FARGO
FIRE DEPARTMENT TO REALIZE
ON POSSIBILITIES HELD OUT
BY LAW RECENTLY ENACTED—
ANNUAL INCOME $1,600.
Steps were taken yesterday after
noon by the Fargo Are department to
take full advantage of the possibilities
held out by the firemen's relief law en
acted at the late legislative session.
City Attorney Resser, at the Instance
of the local flre-fighters, drafted an
application for articles of incorpora
tion which last evening was forward
ed to Secretary of State Blaisdell. The
organisation is known as the Fargo
Fire Department and Relief associa
tion and its directors are to be Chief
Sutherland, Lawrence F. Champion
and Patrick H. Flynn.
Get 1 Per Cent of Premiums.
Through the action of the Fargo de
partment in taking advantage of the
new law the relief of disabled firemen
and the women and children who are
made widows and orphans by their
death in the discharge of their duty,
is no longer dependent upon charitable
subscriptions, but is guaranteed an
annual fund which will constantly in
crease as the years roll. on. This fund
will come from one main source,
specified in the law recently enacted.
Under the law of the state 2 per
cent of the premiums on flre Insur
ance paid the Insurance companies
operating In Fargo is collected by the
state and placed to the credit of the
city, the law providing that such sum
shall be used for flre department
maintenance purposes. Under the
firemen's relief law Just passed one
half of this sum Is to be used for
maintenance purposes by the depart
ment and the other half is to go into
the relief fund, when a proper organi
zation has been affected for the pur
pose of receiving and handling such
fund. No time was lost, therefore, by
the local firemen in organizing the as
About $1,500 Annually.
Last year the money available for
flre department maintenance purposes
through the collection by the state of
2 per cent of the premiums on flre in
surance paid in this city, amounted to
$2,600. This year, it is believed, the
money from such a source will amount
approximately to $3,000, making the
annual income of the fund at the pres
ent time about $1,500.
The need of a guaranteed relief fund
was brought forcibly to the attention
of this city in the fall of 1907, when
the J. I. Case Co.'s warehouse was
burned to the ground and two firemen
lost their lives in fighting to control
the flames. One of the firemen left
a widow and several children in desti
tute circumstances. Charitable citi
zens, however, came nobly to the aid
of the stricken family and subscribed
a substantial sum for their support.

that those democrats who had pressed

"BILLS" H~VE THE CALL.
"Jims" Can't Muster Enough to Make
a 8Howing in Washington.
Washington, March 31.—There wiM
be no "Jim" club at the capital to
run in opposition to President Taft's
"Bill" club, despite the encouragement
of James Schoolcraft Sherman, vice
president of the United States.
A count of noses has put the "Jim"
bunch into a hopeless minority. In
congress there ar^ forty-seven "Bills."
while the "Jims" number only a
meagre thirty-two. The first count
disclosed thirty-three, but it was dis
covered that the enumerator had in
cluded the Hon. Ollie James of Ken
tucky, in the list. Now the Hon. Ollie
objects to having his surname muti
lated in that fashion, and the "Jim'
number slipped back to thirty-two.
Even the addition of James Wilson
out of the cabinet officials gave but
little comfort to the "Jim-jammers..'
The "Bills" had promptly retaliated
by adding to their list of forty-seven
the president of the United States and
two members of the supreme court,
