At 5:30 a contest botwocn tho
varioua companies was started, to tho
delight of thousands of spectators.
At tho sound of tho alarm Engine
company No. 1 and tho Rescue Hook
and Ladder company hicohed up and
were on the public squaro and the
fcrmer, after laying two linos of hoso,
was throwing a stream of water in two
minutes. Tho men who did this
rapid work vero Thomas Spencer,
captain IIoso Co., No. 1; Joe vlc
Murry and George McCollum, pipe
men; Ben Richards and Gip Stewart,
nozzlemen; Leo Stewart.H. J. Brown,

tho top in the incredibly short longth
of time of two and ono-half minutos,
Ed Wilsford, drivor.
At a simultaneous sound nf tlm
alhrrn both the West End and East
End companies started from their
rCBDeotive stations and wirn on th
scene and had wator flowing in four
and ono-half minutes. Tho former
company had to run a diBtanoo of
cloven blooks and the latter not quite
so far, but owing to tho fact that tho
East end horses had to bo walked
across tho bridge, a distanco of 450
feet, it was thought this would about
mako up for tho difference in tho dis
tanco. Tho names of tho men who did
such splendid work for the West end
company are: Aroh Thomas, drivor;
David Mcers and Albert Chesnut,
nozzlemen; Charlie Washburn, Turner
