THE HOSE COMPANY.
The Sew House to be Built Soon—The
Success of the Company Assured.
The meeting of the citizens and
firemen, which was announced for last
evening, to report progress of the com
mittee appointed to try to raise funds,
and definitely dispose of the matter of
the life or death of the Hose Company,
was not held as agreed upon. The
reason for this is the fact that the com
mittee which was to solicit subscrip
tions had met with such flattering suc
cess that they thought it advisable to
wait until next Tuesday evening, the
regular monthly meeting night of the
Company, by which time it is thought
the entire amount will have been
raised.
T^Jie assessment of the business
houses made out by the committee
amounts to about *700 all told, which
amount they anticipate no difficulty
in collecting—over *200 of it having
been raised in two hours one day last
week. The Hose Company has over
*125 in the treasury, already, with an
assurance of nearly as much more,
which, if applied to the building fund,
will more than meet the amount they
agreed to furnish.
The success of the company and the
erection of a hose house may therefore
be considered as assured. And when
this announcement was made on the
stieet last night, it seemed to inspire
the fire laddies with new hope and
enthusiasm, of which the people of
any community might be proud.
Foreman Harry MuCallum, of the
Hose Company, has completed ar
rangements for the production, in a
short time, of the five-act play, "She
Stoops to Conquer," and it promises
to be quite asource of,revenue. Many
prominent ladies have volunteered
their aid ill this undertaking, and will
be untiring in their efforts to make it
a success. The free uso of the Thea
ter lias also been tendered for the oc
casion, while Professor Delius has
proffered the services of his band.
The books have been telegraphed for,
and will arrive in a few days.
Next Tues lav evening is the date
the

be a full attendance of members. Be
sides this, other matters of vital inter
est to the company will be discussed—
among which is the subject of a uni
form for the active firemen, and the re
vision of the bv-laws.
He Will Begin Dork Monday or Tues-1
day Next.
County Assessor Yeates will have
everything in readiness by to-morrow,
THE COUNTY ASSESSOR.
and will start out, Monday or Tues
day next, to make bis assessments and
collect road, poll and hospital taxes.
He intends to have several deputies,
and will canvass the outside precincts,
ranches, etc., before the larger towns
will be assessed; as he thinks, and
correctly, too, that at the present
time, when business is depressed and
prices fluctuating, it would be a diffi
cult matter to determine values and
do justice to all parties concerned.
With the rancher, however, it is quite
different; and by the time this part of
the work is completed, business in the
towKs will have settled down to a
solid basis. The Assessor has there
fore determined to wind up his sum
mer's work with Ilailey.
The levy this year is on a
basis of
*3 per *100 of valuation, instead of
*2.80, as heretofore—an increase of
20 cents. This increase has been
the road and
necessary to keen up _ _ _____
school funds, to which purpose it will
be applied—the other funds remain
ing as before.
BARTHOLDI'S ORE AT STATI'E.
Chance to Secure a Statuette Coun
terpart lor $L
Bartholdi's great statue of "Liberty
Enlightening the World," which is
being shipped to New York harbor oil
French transport, is the largest stat
ue in the world. Some idea of its
magnitude may bo obtained from the
fact that TO persons found standing
room within the head, and that a six
foot man standing on the level of the
lips, ouly just reached the eyebrow.
While workmen were employed on
the crown of her head they seemed to
be making a huge sugar caldron, and
they jumped with ease in and out of
the tip of the nose. Fifteen people
might sit round the flame of the torch,
which elevation can be reached by a
spiral staircase within the outstretohed
arm.
The London Daily News, in speak
ing of it, says: "It is out and away
the largest statue of modern times.
The Colossus of Rhodes was nothing
to it. It could carry the 'Bravaria' or
the 'Herman' in its arms. It towers
to the skies from the yard of the Rue
do Chazelles, where it has been eight
years in construction, and the view
from its coronet sweeps clear of the
six-story houses and beyond the walls
of Paris."
The weight of this stupendous stat
ue is 440,000 pounds, of which 176,
000 pounds are copper and the re
mainder wrouglit-iron. It is expected
to arrive in New York about the 25th
of May. When placed in position it
will loom up 305 feet above tide
water. the bight of the statue being
1514 feet, that of the pedestal 91 feet,
and foundation 52-10 feet
This imposing statue, highir than
the enormous towers of the great
Brooklyn bridge or the steeple of
Trinity Church, which is the loftiest in
the city of New Y r ork—higher, in fact,
than any of the colossal statuos of an
tiquity—by its rare artistic proper
tions, as well as by its stupendous di
mensions, will add another to the
Wonders of the World.
A word should be said of its artistic
merit. The pose, stride, and gesture,
with its c'assie tace, are pronounced
perfect; the drapery is both massive
and fine, and in some parts is as deli
cate and silky in effect as is wrought
with a fine chisel on the smallest
scale.
The conception and execution of
this great work are due to tho great
French sculptor, M. Bartholdi, who
has devoted eight years of his life and
most of his fortune to this great work,
and whose generous impulses, which
must be on a scale commensurate with
this noble work, prompted hi in to
make such a gift to the United States.
The committee iu charge of the con
struction of the base and pedestal for
the reception of this great work are
in want of funds fur its completion,
and have prepared a miniature statu
ette, an exact counterpart of the
original, six inches in bight, the fig
uie being made of bronze, the pedestal
of nickel silver, which they are now
delivering to subscribers throughout
the United States for the small sum of
*1 each. Aside from its being a last
ing souvenir of this colossal statue,
it will ornament our homes and bear
testimony that wo have contributed
to the completion of one of the graod
^ st work , s °* m^ern times. All remit
tjmu.es should he addressed t.o Kiona.iT
tanccs should be addressed to Richard
Butler, Secretary American Commit
tee of the Statue of Liberty, No. 33
Mercer street, New York. The com
mittee are also prepared to furnish a
model, in same metals, 12 inches in
bight, at *5 each, delivered.
We feel assured our ]>eople will be
only too onger to testify their grateful
sense of the friendliness of this mag
nificent offer on thepartof the French
p e0 ple, and to reciprocate the kindly
| at ,d liberal sentiments ill which it
j originated, by thus aiding in an ac
j tive prosecution of the labors that may
a
be required to give the statue an ap
propriate base and pedestal. Now is
the time to do it. Whoever wishes to
have the honor and pleasure of con
tributing to the grandest statue of any
age, to say nothing of the sentiment
that should be welcomed and encour
aged, must act promptly, for the
money will be raised as sure as the
sun rises. Every subscriber sending
*1 will be supplied with a miniature
counterpart of this great and imper
ishable statue of "Liberty Enlighten
ing tho World."
