pump out cellars when they are flooded, as we do not think
it wise to use our regular engines for this purpose.

Third. We recommend that Engine No 1 be refitted
with new pumps and engine; it has been in use 23 years.

Fourth. We again recommend that House No. 4 be
sold and a modern Engine House be erected in its place
somewhere near the center of the Ward.

Fifth. We recommend that the Board of Water Com-
missioners continue their good work in putting in new and
large hydrants, particularly in the outlying districts and
we recommend that the new hydrants be equipped with the
Hercules Independent Gate, and we desire here to express
our appreciation of the liberality of the Hoard of Water
Commissioners in these matters.

Sixth. We recommend the purchase of a trolley car
for use on the .Street Railway for the purpose of conveying
fire engines from one city to another, and we believe that
if we are to keep in the front rank as fire fighters, we must
purchase for our flying squadron a first class horseless ve-
hicle.. There are many arguments in favor of purchasing
such a vehicle; one is that when it arrives at a fire the driver
can leave it and work at the fire instead of having to care
for his horses; then again horses are expensive, it costs a lot
of money each year to maintain them and every year we
have to purchase new horses. We have had to purchase
two this year, so we think it would be wise to take this
matter up at an early date.

Seventh. We again recommend the putting of the
wires of the Fire Alarm system underground.' The necessity
for this grows with each year. We have set forth the rea-
sons for this change more fully under the head of Fire
Alarm Telegraph and make this mention of it to emphasize
this matter more thoroughly.

Eighth. We again recommend that a first class ten-
circuit repeater be put in the Fire Alarm Department. We
have outgrown the present repeater years ago and it is very
unwise to continue its use much longer.

Ninth. We recommend that there be purchased for
the use of the Chief of our Fire Department a horseless
vehicle. These are now being used successfully and exten-
sively by the Fire Department Chiefs in various cities.

We desire to express to the officers and men of the
Militia Company D, our high appreciation of the valuable

services they rendered us on the occasion of the McAuslan
& Wakelin fire. It was very gratifying to us to find that
in a few moments after the signal was given almost the
entire Company responded and did splendid work in keep-
ing the streets clear so that the firemen could work without
interruption, thus aiding us very materially in our efforts
to subdue the fire. The work of the Militia on this occasion
was highly commendable and received the approbation of
the citizens in general.

ent of fire alarm telegraph and one lineman, eleven captains

APPARATUS.

We have purchased during the past year two new exer-
cise wagons and rebuilt one, which makes it practically as
good as new, for Houses 1, 2 and 7. We have also com-
pleted a new r double tank combination hose wagon and
chemical engine which we feel sure will prove a very effect-
ive piece of fire apparatus in the district w T e have placed it.
namely, South Holyoke, which is crowded with tenement
property where overturned lamps and explosions of gaso-
lene stoves are very frequent.

The apparatus now in service consists of six steam fire
engines, one spare engine, two double-tank chemical en-
gines, two combination hose and chemical wagons, five two-
horse hose wagons, one aerial truck, one Leverich hook and
ladder truck, one double-tank combination chemical and
Seagreave hook and ladder truck, one three-horse despatch
wagon, six exercise and supply wagons, two chief's wagons,
twenty-eight three-gallon chemical extinguishers, one super-
intendent of fire alarm wagon and three sleighs. The appa-
ratus is in first-class condition.

this year that it has added greatly to the cost of carrying
on the department, therefore we are not carrying much on
hand.

HORSES.

We have forty-one horses in the Department some of
which will have to be replaced in the near future but most
of them are in good condition. The time has not yet ar-
rived when horses can be entirely displaced, but great ad-
vance has been made in the manufacture of fire apparatus
which are propelled by motors of various kinds and we are
watching with interest the experiments that are being made
in this direction and trust that the time will come when this
expensive I: ranch of our Department can be equipped with
horseless vehicles.

HOSE.

The increased cost of hose only emphasizes the good
judgment of the Water Commissioners in putting in new
hydrants. The closer the hydrants are placed the less hose
we have to use. Hydrants are a permanent improvement
while the hose is a matter of annual expediture. We will
always be obliged to use hose, but the more hydrants we
have the less hose we shall have to buy and we trust that
the Water Commissioners will put in as many new hydrants
the coming year as possible.

HOUSES.

During the past year the Board of Public Works has
done excellent work in the various engine houses, none of
which will be so much appreciated as the extension to the
Highland Engine House, which makes this house a first-class
engine house. It is now possible to do with comfort and
ease the work required from the men and apparatus at this
point. We wish to express our gratitude to the Board of
Aldermen who have made it possible for us to have this
improvement.

FIRE ALARM TELEGRAPH

We would repeat our recommendation of many years
passed that the wires of the Fire Alarm System be put
underground in the thickly settled portions of the city.
We have been very fortunate in the past year that no serious
accident has happened to our System, but we believe that
it is wrong to carry these wires overhead any longer, and
we trust you will make arrangements so that your Board
of Fire Commissioners can carry out this improvement in
the coming year. A failure on the part of our Fire Alarm
,System to properly work, would be a serious matter, and we
have to commend our superintendent of this department
that he has kept his apparatus in such excellent shape that
we have had no serious trouble.

The property in this department is as follows, viz. :

Strong current protector board $230.00

Storage battery 670.00

Case and switchboard 80.00

60 miles of wires 1,173.00

CONCLUSION.
We again thank the Honorable Mayor and City Council
for their liberal appropriations made for the Fire Depart-
ment and for the various acts of courtesy shown us during
the past year and we hope that the new Board of Aldermen
will make appropriations sufficiently liberal to enable us
to carry out the various recommendations that we have
made so that we may still strengthen and improve our Fire
Department, and we hope that these various recommenda-
tions may have your careful consideration and at least some
of them may commend themselves to you so that you will
enable us to carry them into effect. We take this oppor-
tunity to thank the Board of Public Work, the Board of
Water Commissioners, Electric Light Department, City
Clerk, City Treasurer, Ctiy Auditor, City Marshal, and all
the other public officers for their uniform courtesy shown
us during the past year, and especially do we desire to
thank the Street Railway Company for the privilege they
have extended to the firemen to ride upon the cars when
in uniform. This courtesy will be greatly appreciated by
the members of the Department and on their behalf we
thank the Street Railway Company.

Respectfully yours,
CHARLES L. NEWCOMB,
GEORGE J. PREW,
JAMES H. O'CONNELL,

Fire Commissioners.
