The new fire engine which the Ahrens Fox company at Cincinnati has teen had in course of construction for a Long time for the City of Alton will he shipped some time Between december 4 and 7, according As the paint May dry on the new machine the shipment of the fire engine has been delayed months beyond the time originally promised when the contract for the Purchase of the machine signed. One delay after another came due to bad conditions in the Trade and theer has been considerable disappointment Over the delay even of the new engine not needed for a big fire. It is hoped when the new engine comes to make a Radical improvement in the fire department and it is probable that another pumper will be bought later on to improve the service further. The pumper will be used to supplement the water pressure in the Mains whenever there is special need for it. In the higher parts of the City there in frequent trouble at times of fires with Lack of water pressure and it is promised that the new engine will do away with this trouble. The engine will be installed at no. 2 Hose House which has been remodelled to receive it. The City of Alton owned a fire engine once before but sold it hoping to depend on water pressure from the water Mains but with the growth of the City it has been found impractical and unwise to depend on such pressure without an auxiliary pumping machine. For some time complaints have been made that the sanitary sewer had joined the l w. Quot . It would t work and no wonder. City Engineer Schwaab has the reason Over in his office in the City Hall. It is a Large Iron pot or Kettle and it found mocking up the main outlet of the sewer in Lucille Avenue just below College Avenue. From its looks it bad been there a Long time and water and Sll kens bad covered and corroded it greatly. It waa a cracked Kettle but sewers Are no places to put even cracked kettles. Sewers were never intended As junk Yards. They Are a Handy places to get at junk and besides they pay no License to operate As junk dealers. There Are regular junk dealers in the City who do pay licenses and who should be Given a Chance to make their Money Back. That sewer has now abandoned the i. W. W.
