- Birds .from all over the northwest

the larger number of the birds enter

A source of revenue to the city lit
tle known to the general public is
the fine or refund charged the electric
light company for every light found
out at night during the year, which
during 1911 netted the city In the
neighborhood of $160, by a rough es
timate, says the Walla Walla Union.
This amount Is credited to the city by
the Pacific Power & Light company
in collecting Its regular light bill.
The system by which this revenue is
obtained is that whenever a patrolman
finds a light off when it should be
burning, he notifies police headquar
ters, where a small record book Is
kept. About 400 lights were report
ed out during the past year and for
each one of these the city receives
33 1-2 cents, so that the police depart
ment more than pays for the small
amount of work necessary to keep the

Fire Committee Advises
Council to Provide Mod
ern System.
After Consideration, Board Believes
insurance Reduction Will Pay Cost
of Equipment and Installation In
Short Time.
In all probability Pendleton wlll
soon have a modern and up to date
fire alarm system, the 'present. coun
cil seeming much more favorably dis
posed towards the oft-repeated rec
ommendation of Fire Chief Vaughan
than has been any council in a num
ber of years. At the regular meet
ing last night the council accepted the
report of the fire committee on the
chief's petition, which report advised
a system of not less than twenty box
es, a new 1200 bell and an auto chem
ical hose wagon.
The committee agreed with Chief
Vaughan that the Installation of such
a system would reduce insurance
premiums to such an extent that the
purchase price would be saved in a
short time, touring the next week,
figures will be prepared showing the
cost of the' proposed system and the
saving which would be made to the
public, and It is expected that favor
able action will follow.
Chief Vaughan has repeatedly in
the last few years urged the installa
tion of a modern alarm system but
his recommendation has always been
accorded a-cold reception until made
to the present administration and he
now has hopes that his persistence
will win.
Tho Report.
Following is the report in full made
by the fire committee last evening:
Janpary 17, 1912.
To the Hon. Mayor and Common
Council of the City of Pendleton.
Gentlemen: We, your committee,
to whom the within petition was re
ferred, hereby recommend the instal
lation of an up-to-date fire alarm sys
tem, at once, consisting of not less
than twenty (20) boxes to be distrib
uted in and about the city of Pendle
ton at different points to be desig
nated by the chief of tho fire depart
ment and the fire committee. The
installation of such a system will ma
terially reduce the Insurance rates;
about seven per cent in the business
district and about ten per cent in the
residence district, so that the system
will pay for itself in a short time, be
sides giving added protection. The
striking apparatus now in use is to
be applied on the purchase price of
the new apparatus. We would also
recommend the purchase of a 1200
pound fire bell, the be'.l now In use
to be applied on the purchase price.
And we also recommend that in the
near future the city of Pendleton pur
chase an auto chemical hose wagon
to carry at least 1000 feet of hose,
which will still further reduce our
insurance rates. We find that much
smaller towns than Pendleton have
such a system in operation .and same
has proven very successful.
