Nashville, Sept. 11. Fire Preven
tion Commissioner of Tennessee.
Chas. W. Schuyler, is in Chicago at
tending the convention of the An
nual Fire Marshals' Association of
North America.
Mr. Schuyler has already attained
a reputation on fire prevention work
by his energetic work in furthering
the present fire prevention law of the
State in the last Legislature. This
law is said by' other State authori
ties to be the most modern law on
the subject of any State in the
union. Mr. Schuyler is on the pro
gram to address this association on
Suggestions for a National Clean
Up Week, and the State Building
The Fire Marshals' association of
North America has advannced pro
gressive ideas and methods towards
the elimination of fire hazards in
America," said Mr. Schuyler before
leaving. "The fire waste in this
country is , enormous, running
around $750,000,000 annually, cov
ering the losses proper, upkeep of
fire departments, fire fighting appa
ratus and business. If the cost of
solicitors and other expenses of the
fire insurance companies were added,
it would bring the combined cost to
the people of America right at a
billion dollars, for it requires forty
per cent of the insurance premiums
for the maintenance of the fire in
surance companies and sixty per cent
of the total premiums are returned
to the assured for the losses attained
by them. A loss by fire is gone for
ever it is that much of the nation's
value wiped off the earth and can
never be returned. Tennessee has
the highest per capita loss of any
State in the Union, or any country
in the world. The cost to every man
woman and child in the State of
Tennessee is $5.18 per annum. Sev
en of the largest European countries
have a per capita loss of but thirty
three cents; England, fifty-four
cents; Germany, nineteen cents;
Austria, thirty cents; Sweden, thir
teen cents; the Netherlands, twelve
cents, and Switzerland, four cents.
"Herbert M. Nelson, of the United
States geological survey, reported
that the loss of fire In one year in
this country amounts to one-half
the value of the buildings construct
ed annually, a tax upon the people
exceeding the total value of the gold.
silver, copper and petroleum pro
duced in the United States and its
territories each year."
The fire loss in America covering
the last ten 'years exceeds the gold
held by the United Kingdom, Aus
tria-Hungary, Italy and Spain; is
two hundred million in excess of the
fire prevention, and would enable
the introduction of new methods in
this universal cause of conservation.
Some States have been operating
such departments for fifteen years,
and it is stated that in many States
the fire loss has been reduced from
twenty per cent, to fifty per cent.
Governor Rye Is greatly interested
in this conservation movement, be
sides other reforms he has engender
ed into his administration bearing
on retrenchment policies.
The fire prevention department
does not cost the State one cent, this
department being suported by a spe
cial tax of one-half of one per cent
on the net premium received on fire
and marine insurance written in the
State of Tennessee. This, of course,
is paid directly by the people who
carry fire Insurance.

Straight from the polar sea, ap
parently, the wondrous northern
light (an opalescent radiance born of
the twilight and the dawn) came
stealing o'er the waters like a bene
diction and to enhance its mystery
and beauty, when I looked north
ward over the rounded shoulder of
the globe, I saw the Midnight Sun.
At this great height and northern
latitude it did not sink to the hori
zon, but merely paused, apparently
some twenty feet above the waves,
then gradually rose again. It was
the last countless sunsets which had
that day been following each other
round the globe. It was the first of
countless sunrises which, hour after
hour, in so many continents would
wake to life again a sleeping world.
I have seen many impressive sights
in many lands, but nothing, until
time for tne shall be no more, can
equal in solemnity the hour when,
standing on this threshold of a con

one moment's interval of darkness,
the past transform itself in the pres
