Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LKTHBftlDOE, ALTA., THURSDAY, MAY 27, II OUR LET PER BOX. THE FIRE DEPARTMENT Former Chairman of the Committee Criticizes Present Council Mr. Editor have read with con- siderable interest your reports of re- cent council meetings, particularly as regards the fire department. I presume that the reports are correct. We read a short time ago that the fire hall was "no oi" no use for civic purposes, and according to Al-d. Hatch "not much good as a fire "no room for our etc., and now read that we have nothing by of fire apparatus absolutely nothing. One well ask, what have we been spending money for during the past two years. Have we been doing so simp- ly to have this year's council rele- gate the results to the scrap pile and spend some more money Has the city grown so fast that the pro- gram laid out last year is already too small ant! puny, or have we got the spending fever to such an extent as to demand relief only in the ex- penditure of Jets of it, the result of which in turn, in the opinion of next year's council, may have been misapplied, lea-ding to a further ad- scrap pile and a de- for more money to Seagrave, was recommended and this I presume, is the ladder which wil not go into the fire hall. But where is it Why isn't it hero for use in event of a fire It was cu1 out of the 1907 program owing to financial stringency, but was put on again in 1908 and voted upon by the ratepayers, but the council failed to order it -in 1S03. Where is this lad- der which is too large for the fire hall. But wait, a No. 8 Seagruve, which is large enough for a city like Regina and Moose Jaw, measures 52 feet, is considered too small for Leth- brkigp by our council. I hear that a 66 foot ladder, which is to cost is required for this city. I think the council is making a mis- take in buying so large a truck. Why should we buy a 66 foot ladder when we haven't, nor are we likely to have, a 66 foot building in the near future The new Sherlock block will measure 38 ft. 6 inches. Is it wise to haul a 66 ft. ladder to every fire when nearly all buildings are less that 40 ft. high Now as regards the ten paid men. No doubt it is an rdeal condition, but I am with the mayor when he questions the advisability of the ex- penditure in maintenance now. By all means let us have the best ap- paratus money can buy: and put the best men in charge, and I believe Chief Kroning is all right, hut why ten paid men True, Edmonton has ten paid men they also ha ve a pop- 1 MOVING" .PICTURES.

It is true that both these new pieces o apparatus suffer sadly from lack o care, a disability which any appar- atus, 'however expensive, is subject to, but this is something which can be rectified in the new fire call. Tie alarm system, we axe told, is good." Montreal had for years what was considered one of the fire fighting equipments on the continent. Strange that they should have used our fire alarm system, up to last year, when a new system costing over was ordered. Strange that Saskatoon, "Winnipeg and other western cities use our system today, and still it's no at least so some of our aldermen are made to say. In view of the acquirement of the electric plant by the city, I would' now suggest as 'an improvement, the use of storage batteries, using the present gravity cells as a reserve in case of -breakdown at the plant. The gravity cells, however, are all right for fire jalarm. purposes, and I challenge otherwise. sociation. Yours truly, E.

In an inter- view, Mr. Dickson said this was Kis first visit to the Dominion and apart from insurance business, different companies that he is connected with have placed heavy investments in both Canada and the United States. Hence the desire to see the cauntry himself. Asked if he believed of the so-called German scare, he said he had no hesitation in saying that mon- ey interests of the kingdoms were .horoughly behind a get-ready policy.
