SATURDAY, JAM'AIIY .1, l:H-'.
It will In' well fur tin" churns of
Tonopah to awaken to tlir necessity
of providing fur tin ori;aiiizalioii ol
an ulliciriil lire department, before
inexorable fate may make us all wish
that we liail done so. The mere fuel
that tlir city lias so far been, mure
fortunate than any other one in a
thousand by no means indicates that
such luck will continue. Independent
of any corporate power whatever,
the town lias provided itself with two
standard chemical endues, which are
.of incaleuable ..value if ellicieutly
handled and utterly useless if they
are iiot.'-i All property owners and
business men are not liremeu . and
miht not know u blunderbus from
';.a pat)iitfr, but they should know that
.f iib'.dii'e, apparatus, can bo of., any
irartiily use unless kept in perfect
('order' at all hours of the day and
night. This can only be done by men
wno know how anjl who are honored
by special assijjnineat to such duty.
The general apathy manifest at
thisstajfe of procedure is inexplicable,
but there is a course open by which,
. 1 if they are disposed to act, may well
i- accomplish all that is required. For
the purpose of fofiiiiny a tire com
pany, a mass meeting of property
owners i not at all requisite. Unless
' said property holders became active
members they would properly have
no voice whatever in the election of
company or department otlicers.
That is the prerogative of the men on
the active roll.i ilieu let a dozen or
iinore of the younger element get
together, at some time of their own
appointment and' by the adoption of
a constitution and by-iaws in the
usual form, organize a volunteer lire
company, thereby gaining the right
to the namiJof Tonopah if they want
it and the distinction of becoming
" No. 1." T''e next dozen or twenty
can do the same thing, for say
" Uutler Engine Company No. 2."
Kach company to admit its own hon
orary (lion voting) members, its own
president, secretary, foi email and
assistants. The. membership being
equal, the companies at stated times
to elect a 'chief and assistant engi
neers. The town generally is liable
to tako a lively interest in this con
test, but, the town generally does not
With this beginnini,', all other es
sentials follow in due course. The
success of a volunteer, tire depart
ment hinges upon the life, spirit and
ctevotion to public duty. With the
honor of gettiiigj"tirst Water" always
in view, there would be u, frozen
machine run to. a blaze as was the
case on New Year day. i
It is evident that some', form nf in.
corporation must be adopted by
Touopah, in Hie interest of public
welfare, good government and effec
tual . attention to the thousand and
one details incident to the adequate
protection of life, health and prop
erty.' The step, important as it is,
and will be, is not one of anticipation,
for the city is already in; re and con
stantly growing. In due ('onser'va
t ism us to the luture, it will be rive
lime's larger before the next biendial
session of the State legislature the
authority with power to set the legal
wheels hi motion. There u hardly
room for doubt but that body will
readily pass such a measure, should
it embrace any well digested plan
formulated by the representative
men of Tonopaii. Nor is the task of
piTit'ing auiorganie act or charter
a (ilficulMone. In various long
statutes Nevada already empowers
Hoards of Coun ty Commissioners to
do and perform a host of official acts
affecting the routine of municipal
government- and which have been
loui-id to work well and economically
in other instances. Hut in all the
other cases the town or city govern
ment is also the county seat, where
tle functions of )County 'ommission
ers are exercised 'b practical citi
zens. For ti e purpose of earrwng
on proc-edings go, erning the conduci.
of public affairs in 'lonopah, - the
"officials at reiiiot lleimuMt inight as
w 1 be in Tophet. 'Nevertheless.-we
are not asking the'removal of tlit
.seat of county giivmi men f; at least
u ilil the inevitable general territorial
readjustment of -counties throughout
this tiiiii .. of . . the state.
The act required at the hands of
the Stale assembly is one authorizing
the flection of a Hoard of 'Trustees.

nr Moating inileblidiiess can be
avoided by running the governmental
machine on a strictly cash basis. A
cniiinullcc having in hand the im
mediate learning of a bill to be sent to
one ii pre-etitativi's inCarson. should
be formed and instructed to proceed
to business at once. Empower some
prominent cilizeli to name the com
mittee. The inemU'i's of the Senate and
House Naval committees, after con
fercnces with the Secretary of the
Navy, have peaelieully decided upon
a plan for the increase of the person
nel of the Navy. It contemplates an
additional naval cadet for each Con
gressional district, two for each
Senator and ten annually to be ap
pointed at large by the; I'resident.
The diHiculty in connection with the
inequality in classes which would
result from the sudden injection of the
increased allowance is to be .solved
by giving the Secretary of t hi1' Navy
the discretion of . determining the
times at which new appointments are
to be made. This increase will give
Nevada three additional cadets.
