Some A few years ago Greenville had one of the finest and best fire departments in and one that in efficiency ranted second in this great Common Today it is without head or firemen have lost all the apparatus is in bad condition and a splendid Silsby engine is slowly rusting to pieces in the engine The ADVANCE Auous has taken pains to investigate the condition of and the fact is that Greenville has no fire that is to say the fire men are not to be depended on anymore than other citizens And the firemen qan not be for they have re ceived very shabby treatment For years they paid their own rent of hose bought their own furniture and supported the organization by money out of their own Later they asked the council to make them an ap which was finally each company receiving Though in at least one did not cover ex it was a but it has not been paid For Hose had to wait nine months for the money or last The secre tary of the council would not issue the order which had been granted because there was no money in the as landlord then agreed to take the or der as money and turn it for taxts to the borough but though as secietary tried it seventeen the order was not and the fue wne notified to move The hose companies are also obliged to pay for insurance on their parade furniture and the The in surance companies refuse to aid them in any and one insurance company went so far to sue the firemen for The firemen claim that the street force are allowed lo wear their rubber coats and use their wrenches and that it is no uncommon thing for a them to go to a fire without a hy drant only a few coats can be After the Grimm fire there were not sufficient members to reel up the The fact was made known to three who were request ed to send the street force to bring the hose or at least assist the few as a fire might break out before Nothing was yet the firemen are censured for great neglect at the Heilman The public generally has given the firemen a cold If a small lire is extinguished before the Lose com panies get it is usual to guy arid roast the firemen on their Re cently they tried to have a firemens for Greenville firemen giving exhibitions with the hose carts and en together with The commit tee in charge visited twelve places of business and couldnt raise one To sum the firemen have an insuffi cient appropriation paid they get little encouragement from they ruin their get up at all hours of the trail through the mud or and not only receive no com but are at an expense But in spite of they are willing to do the fair and it is the judgment of Chief exChiefs Stone and besides nearly all the fire men and many that a public meeting should be held at which the sit uation can be freely explained and dis The town can have a depart ment with a few paid
