RESCUE HOSE CO.
OLDEST IN CITY,

(Continued From Page One)
beginnings are big endings." Mr
m
Gates said a few men, of whom he
was probably the oldest at that time,
the others being all young men, went
around and collected money from thb
citizens to buy a reel and hose to
use in time of fire, and the old reel
is today highly treasured as a relic,
of those early Tlays of 1579 when the
first fire company was formed
The v name "Rescue" was suggested
by one of the little band, now long
since passed away, and the name
adopted. Mr. Gates said Rescue Hose
Company has weathered many storms,
but has eonie into harbor safely, and
is now a ship of modern type with a
large crew ready and willing to fight
when called upon. He said he felt
very much alone as those with whom
he had started out on the venture
forty years ago, had all passed on
save Charles Obery and himself.
Chief Fire Marshal George Basil!
spoke in glowing terms of the city j
volunteer fire department, of which
he feels justly proud, and commended |
the firemen for their heroic work at j
many fires, especially in the last few
years, when they had saved much j
property at the risk of their lives.
It was hoped to have a little talk
from each of the city's companies but |
Water Witch was not represented. On j
behalf of Independent No. 2 Company.
Roy L. Morgan made a happily ex-!
pressed*'little speech, and Mr. Weber
spoke on behalf of the Eastport Vol- j
unteer Fire Company, and Frank |
Sazama spoke on behalf of the West |
Annapolis Fire Company, of which he (
is president, and made a splendid ad- ;
dress.
N’evett Steele gave a pleasing little
talk, telling how Rie citizens of An
napolis feel a keen sense of pride in
the volunteer fire companies. Leslie
Klakring made a brief address, wel
coming all present and telling briefly
of the object of the occasion which
was called forth by a desire to have
their friends join with Rescue Hose
celebrating its 'fortieth anniver
sary.
Mrs. Abram Moss spoke on behalf

of the ladies who had come forward
when called upon U> give aid to the
firemen in bazars, carnivals ami
fetes. Mrs. Moss saiif it was her
father who gave the name to Rescue
Hose, be having been one of the char
ter members of the company. Mrs.
Moss said the success of the company
was largelyv due to the co-operation
of its members and of the lady help
ers. and the old proverb. "In rnityj
There is Strength.” was exemplified!
in all the doings of the Rescue Hose
Company, and the women workers.
Mrs. Nevett Steele spoke of the need
for the flashlight for the fire-compan
ies, and how this need had impressed
her at one of the city's big fires. She
told of having endeavored to raise
the funds for this flashlight and that
there now remained but $lO to clear
the debt, and hoped that would be
presented soon.
After the speechmaking there was
music by Viktor's orchestra, and
dancing was enjoyed by the younger
people. A buffet supper was served
in the lower room, by a corps of seven
waiters, the service being excellent.
The menu consisted of salt water
oysters on the half shell, potato salad,
'slaw, crackers, pickle, ham, beef and
cheese sandwiches, coffee and ice
cream. The reception and celebra
tion was a great success and the hap-
I py coming together of a large number
(of the towns representative citizens.
