The chief took occasion at the same time to read the riot act to the force, and to let it lc understood that he did not propose to hare a man on the force who would be in anv sense a dis. credit to it. and that the next offense of any kind would result in removal from the force. The officers have periority of the paid department, it clings fondly to the belief that a sys tem withont discipline whose only duty is to throw water on a burning buiiding.is the most reliable and ser viceable. Commenting on yester day's tire, the Union shows its extreme ignorance bv terming preposterous the proposition ' ad vanced by the Antics that the council ought to adopt ordi nances forbidding the use of water on anv occasion excent in cases where the tire is under great head way, until the arrival of the depart Wnsuranee.

By getting thcui all at once now. the present force will have their two winters wear out oi mem the first place had there been a com panv near enough to have been sent for. It is not to be expected that volunteers should do as good work as paid firemen, and it is not belittl ing the efforts of the former to as sert that except in extraordinary cir cumstances thev should await the arrival of the chief before making indiscriminate use of water, and that pending such time as the connci provides.the two companies so much needed, there scotild be an under standing between the chief and the siMTcial companies. tor t lie L nion to lecture on what should constitute fire protection is as absurd as would be a work on null tarv science written by an ass. 312 and 314.

Boies has been hard for some "time past, and he has probably overtaxed his strength. Added to this is an at tack which seems to be the onslaught of a fever, though its nature and se riousness are not yet fully known, perhaps.
