Also that a B-passenger auto be purchased for a squad wagon, so that in case of fire in the north district Ave men would be sufficient to reinforce No. 2 station and always keep the centre of the city fully protected. The same would apply to the southeast until another station is built which will need your' consideration at an early date. I understand that an appropriation has already been made for this car. Also that our fire alarm system be overhauled and brought up-*to-datc as follows: One duplicate set of storage batteries; 1 battery raok; 1 punch register; red lights on fire alarm iboxes; alarm lines overhauled. This would cost approximately ?500 and. that the following minor equipment be purchased to bring the department right up-to-date: One life net; 3 Siamese couplings; 1 perfection holder; 4 waterproof covers: '.'

The present agricultural schedule is ot Republican ori gin and every Republican'policy, except Canadian reciprocity, was designed to uphold it. It had its origin in the McKiuley tariff bill o� 1890.

The exhibition this year is by far the largest winter show ever held by the association, and as the south boasts of' a large number of the champion birds' of the province, the exhibition should be populair with poultry fanciers.
