The commissioners looking after them closely. It was reported again today that the file cisterns were empty. From the fact that the water in the canal is now flowing in full volume such a Rumor gave Rise to considerable uneasiness As it meant them was something radically wrong with tile water system in use in supplying the fire Wells. Fire commissioner Hirshfeld was seen this morning and denied that the cisterns were dry but in View of the rumours it is probable a thorough inspection of the whole system of water Supply for fire purposes will be made at once in order that any defects May lie corrected. In this connection it is again urged upon the fire company that they meet and take Steps to give their apparatus a thorough test. The company is said to be in a somewhat disorganized condition and the fact that there has a Een no meeting of the firemen for months lends color to this re Rort.
