According to appearances the Continental fire company will have a new Hose House in the near future. The present Structure erected some forty years ago has been condemned by an expert. There has been a great Deal of complaint during the year or so past As to the unsafe condition of the building. Pursuant to orders from Council the building and repair committee have at least twice recently looked Over the premises and each time reported unfavourably showing All complaints Well founded. The foundation of the Hose House has sagged. The Walls Are rent with fissures which have loosened Many of tin bricks so that they can be by the hand. The Hose Tower however has been the cause of the greatest solicitude among those who occupy adjoining pro a ties. With every High Gale of wind they have stood by expecting to see it collapse. Owing to Stringency of finances our Borough has been obliged to adopt a policy of Little or no improvements. Council therefore did not propose to Rush into the building of a new Hose House unless satisfied that the present building is actually beyond repairing. In order to get a decision that would be final s. M. Trumbower of the firm of Trumbower so Werkheiser was employed to examine the Hose Bouse. Or. Trumbower presented his report on monday night. He condemned the Hose House As wholly unsafe explaining that repairs arc out of the question owing principally to the bad foundation. The Tower however to which the main building is a a anchored a he considers the safest part of the Structure. He recommended not Only that the building be torn Down hut also that it be removed from the spot which he considers wholly us suitable. He advised Council to make haste in the matter As the building is in such a state As to make delay dangerous. Or. Dougherty and others at once put themselves on record in favor of a new Hose House on a wholly new site. The idea seemed popular with the members and it was decided to put on foot negotiations for the purchase1 of ground at the Northwest Corner of Mill and Centre streets Tobe used As a site for the new building.
