Part of the meeting held by the board of safety last evening was ex- 4 ecutlve and part open. Mayor El ton presided. . Final action on the re commendation of the board of'aldeiv men toplaco fire alarm boxes in the uuuKuiotc trimly 01 t on s ana Jacques' theaters was favorably ta.- ken and the boxes will be ex-ected as soou as possible. ; John F. Fitzgerald, callmah under Captain McEYoy of Engine Co No 3. was dismissed from tbe service. He was charged by the captain with ab senting himself from quarters with out apparent cause and was cited to appear before tlie board last evening and explain the matter. - When it came up Fitzgerald as not on the horizon a fact which seemed to cause the board exceeding surprise.' Cap tain McEvoy was on hand and In formed1 the board that he could not explain the mnn's absence, because he had leen properly notified. Fitz gerald had an application on file for promotion to the regular fire force and this apparent indifference on t his part to the board's summons was ; therefor the more surprising. Captain , McEvoy stated that Fitz gerald AViis absent from quarters' without leave on the nights of Febru arvJ ' 36 ai,d J", and, he accordingly made proper report to Chief Sn'agg. drink also, wlipn i w t the house, imt no report of this - was -inade to the chief. Commissioner Dnggs asked why ' there was no re port of this made and the captain re plied that there wag no reason that he knew of. The board thereupon retired to executive session and a mo ment later Fitzgerald showed up. He stated his, sidfs of the case and was then dismissed from the fire depart ment.. - I - -t The following , fid applications for appointment to the regular police force:- James E.
