I know what I am talking about when I say that there are stores In that tmmo part of the city that arc ten times" as liable to have ft fire from that cause as was the Bos ton store. For the same reason , the council docs not scorn nnxlous to acl on the elec trical ordinance that I prepared , and which hns boon slumbering lu the comlttec of the whole for I don't know how long. The com mltteo on gas and electric lights reported that It did not know enough about tliu mat ter to pass on It , and sent It back without recommendation , after which It went to the committee of the whole , and thcro It remains. "It always seemed rather strange to mo that the ordinance now In effect should not liavo been passed until It had been amended In several particulars to suit Mr. Wiley , and 1 understam ) that It was then sent by him to Chicago to Mr. Sunny , tlia general western agent of the Thomson-Hous ton company , who returned It with the statement that all .tho fangs had been pulled out of It. That ordinance- docs not require the putting tip of fuse rosettes In connecting the lamps , and the fuse Is the only protection we have against an exces sive flow of current , with the exception of automatic cut-olTs , which arc too expensive to bo considered. "The fuse rosette costs about 22 cents , while the plain porcelain or wooden block rosette can bo purchased for S cents or less. Still , with the greater length of tlmo that is required to put up the latter and make con nections , I think that the electrical compa nies are doing themselves an Injury by using them , while the safety of thc-bulldings wired Is certainly not as great. Kven the fuse rosette must bo protected In order to prevent Its blowing out among draperies , or the heated metal would create the very re sult that It was intended to obviate. Thcro arc stores In the city that are dangerously wired , yet the council Is not disposed to pass an ordinance that will give the authority to cause them to bo changed. The Insur ance men arc kicking and every little while Omaha is threatened with an Increase In rates. The ordinance that was submitted by mo contains very fully the rules adopted by the national board of underwriters , who give the subject of flre risks much moro at tention than the general run of electric coin- panics. If that ordinance was in effect and was cnfdTced the Insurance companies could certainly not complain about wiring that was done as they themselves insisted that It should bo. " There are great chunks ot gloom hanging around the fire Insurance agencies , as nearly every company represented In Omaha was caught for Insurance In the Boston store fire. It Is generally predicted that the much talked of advance in rates will soon be made.

The climatic feature , the commercial situ ation of San Francisco , the fact that the city Is the natural distributor of the products of the grpatest agricultural state In the union , the character of its surrounding population , engaged in pursuits more diversified than these of any other section of the United States or the world , embracing mining , cat tle raising , fancy stock breeding ; , wool grow ing , manufacturing , agriculture In all Us branches , and fishing , ought to Insure a great success for this enterprise.
