BERKELEY, June 17.— The reorgani
zation of the Berkeley Fire Depart
ment has begun, and the efforts of
Mayor Thomas Rlckard and Fire Chief
James Kenny, seconded by the Trus
tees, to give the town a better fire ser
vice are bearing fruit. Berkeley has
been practically without fire or police
protection for years, and the present
Board of Trustees, at the Initiative of
Rickard, has been attempting to reme
dy this delinquency. The old volunteer
department is being largely replaced
by paid firemen. In a few years more
the department will be entirely paid.
Several important changes are bslng
made in the department, to take effect
on or before July 1. Two old flre
houscs will be abandoned and four new
men added to the list of paid firemen
by that date. The money saved from
the abandonment of the houses is used
to pay the salaries of the firemen,
which now amount to $145 a month.
These men have only antiquated ap
paratus with which to work but hope
to be better equipped if the proposed
bond issue Is approved by the voters.
With the $145 a month expended on

stands the Lorin flrehouse will expire

salaries the city gets the services of
twenty-nine men, who receive $5 each.
The changing of these men from volun
teers to salaried flre-flghters has been
going on for two years and twenty
five of them have been carried on the
city pay-roll for a year. As fast as
the fire companies are disbanded cer
tain of the members are retained for
the pay department. In those com
panies that remain intact, however,
there are still 150 volunteers who assist
at fires. The paid men are scattered
among the following companies:

When the City Council passed an or
dinance which permitted bicyclists to
use the sidewalks under certain re
strictions the legislative body went
outside -of its powers, according to a
decision that was rendered to-day by
Police Judge George Samuels. His
Honor ruled that the sidewalks of the
city are for the exclusive use of pe
destrians, that cyclicts are not pedes
trians and, therefore, the bicycle can
not be ridden on a sidewalk.
For that reason the case of William
Clarke, a wheelman, who failed to turn
out and dismount when meeting a pe
df.=trian on a sidewalk, was dismissed,
the decision being that any punish
ment administered under the ordinance
would be invalid.
The Judge used the following lan
guage regarding the question:
Any law that attempt* to Kiv« a bfcyclttt
privileges to ride on a cMrwalk la Invalid.
The Council has no right to permit the
wheelman under any restriction* to use the
¦>!<!e«-alk that under the municipal charter is
for th« exclusive use of pedf-Mrlans. When a
City Council attempts to grant permission to
cyclUtK to rids on the sidewalk It goes ouUid«s
of Its powers. I rid? a wheel myself, but I
keep to the street. The city must have a new
ordinance, or no more arrt-Ms of violators of
the bicycle law will b? of avail.

Very few people, says Railway Loco
motive and Engineering, would doubt
the electric telegraph being exclusively
a modern invention, yet experiments
were made centuries before the electric
telegraph came Into use, which indi
cated that a system of electric teleg
raphy could have been worked out had
the need of it existed.
In 1746 Le Monnier exhibited a series
of experiments in the Royal Gardens at
Paris showing how erectricity could be
transmitted through iron wires 95Q
fathoms in length. In 1753 Charles Mar
shall published a remarkable descrip
tion of the electric telegraph in the
Scots' Magazine under the title of "An
Expeditious Method of Conveying In
telligence." In 1846 George Lewis Le
sage, professor of mathematics at
Geneva, promulgated an invention of
an electric telegraph, which he eventu
ally completed and set to work In 1774.
This system was composed of twenty
four I metallic wires, insulated and in
closed in a non-conducting substance.
Each wire ended in a stock mounted
with a little ball of elder pith and sus
pended by a silk thread. When a cur
rent of electricity was sent through the
wire the eider ball at the opposite end
was repolled, the \ movement desig
nating a letter of the alphabet. By this
means word3 could be spelled out. It
was a crude method, but it was a com
plete electric telegraph system. The
reason why this and other inventions
of a. similar nature never came into
general use was that the need had not
arrived. — Express Gazette.

for centuries. It is the well of Joseph.
Its environs form a dreary enough
prospect. Above It Is a low, Insignifi
cant hill upon whose summit cluster
a few miserable mud huts, and at the
base is the sordid anachronism of a
puffing steam mill, while away from
it stretches in all directions the faint
toned, almost hueless expanse of the
Syrian landscape, long reaches of
palest blue and gray and yellow, with
only an occasional blotch of brilliant
color in the foreground. Dreary and
waste and sad indeed is the scene to
the eyes of the flesh, but to the eyes
of the spirit that squat, bald hill be
comes a veritable Mount of Vislonsj —
visions a thousand times more real
and vivid than the spectacle of mud

felt when he approached the burning bush.
An unplaced vole« teemed to whisper to me.
"Thou are treading on holy ground." The
herces of Bunker Hill helped to make the
republic, the veterans of the Civil War pre
served It and the younger heroes of the Span
ish-American war removed the yoke of op-
Uekslon from Cuba. These were grand and
glorious achievements arid all credit and rev
erence Is due tr. those who participated in
thtm. To-day as we consecrate this sacred
s|«t we have reason to -congratulate ourselves
on the condition of our country and to revere
the memory of those who bequeathed to us
such a splendid heritage, not forgetting the
father of our country. George .Washington,
and its «avlcr Abraham Lincoln. Let us be
guided by the patriotism which Inspired the
makers and defenders of this nation and our
future will be blessed.
