The board of relief has completed Its 8nnual session, three special hearings being held Saturday. Altogether 2i0 appeals from assessments made on property about the city were filed with the "board. The first cafe was on the appeal ol the Fhllawlo Armstrong estate from an assessment of $100,000. Attorney George R. Cooley, representing the esttte. ap peared and stated that the assessment was on a loan to the Benton-Armstrons company, made by local banks, and was already taxed once and therefore should not be taxed again. The next was on the appeal of Ed ward Malley from the assessment on his newly-purchased building on Chnpel street. Mr. Malley'g new build ing is the small one in between his two stores and he alleges it is assessed for about 130.000 too much. The finul special case was the ap peal of John J. Brennan from the as sessment nn his property at Daven port avenue and Elliott -street. He owns or has charge of about $11,000 worth of real estate there and it Is as sessed ;is $li a front foot. He offers to ' It for $30. ho told the board, sml i an't get that. Other property adjoining went at 11 a foot and can not be sold for $25. He wanted the dif ference taken off. Decision was re served In all cases. FIREDHDERWRITERS Are Inspecting the Equipment, , ' Water Supply and Buildings. REPORT TO COMPANIES Erery Aid GItmi Them by City I)e partments Testing the Fire Ap- pa rat us of the City. It may not be known, to the public generally but the city Is now under going such an Inspection and over y .hauling as It has never had before In j reference to its fire-fighting and fire- escaping equopment. The National Board of Fire Underwriters has five of its inspectors in the city at present, men who have had wide experience in Just this work and can be rated among the most expert in the country at it. They are J. C. B. Snell, struc tural engineer; Charles Lum, structur al engineer; R. C. Bennett, hydraulic engineer; R. Bogart, hydraulic engin eer, and G. M. Hoyt, fire department specialist. There was to have been another,, making six, but at the lost moment he could not come. The In spectors came from the central office of the National Fire Underwriters at 135 Nassau street, New York. They have been all over the country doing Just this sort of work. Mr. Hoyt and Mr. I.um have already been In New Haven for the last three ' weeks. The others have been here about a week. They have been mak ing a complete inspection of the fire department so far. First the fire alarm boxes were considered Their location was looked Into to see if tbev were centra! to where they might be most needed. Then the fire alarm tele graph was their concern. Tests of the fire apparatus is now to follow. The ladder wagons and their equipment will be gene over thoroughly and the engine will be tested. Mr. Hoyt. one of the inspectors, last night explainer! to a Journal-Courier man the meth ods by which these engines will be gone over. Each of them will he taken In turn to some hydrant con veniently near its fire house and there It will be tested at 100 pounds pres sure net. This was explained by Mr. Hot as being the only true way In which engines may be compared. The pressure of water is taken as It is sent out. from the engines and from that pressure is subtracted the pressure at which the engine reeeive.s the water from the hydrant. Sometimes the wa ter comes to the hydrant at 20-pounds pressure; sometimes it 1 as high as SO-pounds. and It. is obviously unfair to compare the pressure of the water as It leaves the engines when there Is as great a different-" In the pressure at which thev receive it. The Are hose will be gone over to see what the quality and quantity of It Is. The quarters of the men will he Inspected In detail to see If they are so arranged that the men can get out of them with the aparatus with the greatest possible speed. Later Inspections will Include all of the principal buildings of the city, es pecially those that are very valuable or high or dangerously situated. Elec tric wiring will be looked into, both as to the general laws on the subject and as to the strict enforcement of these laws. Tho same will be done with the building material. When the inspection has been gone over in every detail, Mr. Hoyt said, the inspectors will make a report to the national board. He refused to give any hint of what this report would be. He said that a copy of It would be sent to every Insurance com- the ground any day, It would be a wonder. BWUHXG STATISTICS. Statistics of building operations In New Kngland compiled by the F.
