LIPPY, Ta2or. is, when needed, to out "General Meade." - · The cost of maintaining a new engine was brought out as a third adverse argument, together with the possibility of something going wrong with xKe mechanism just at s. tisie irhen it might be most needed- . As a .counter proposition, to the pur- crhase-of an automobile .engine there was advanced the plan to erect a large standpipe for fire purposes only. Mr. Mcpherson, of the Water Company, stated that to supply the : mains of town, by. pumping water into the standpipe first and then haying it go through the large pipes "would require much-more pumping force than is now necessary. If the standpipe were to be used for Sre purposes only, then the mains would be filled with stale water every time a Sre occurred. Mr. I*Ie- Clean suggested a pipe independent of the Marsh Creek supply, being filled from the artesian ·wells on East Cemetery Hili. He said he understood such a pipe could be erected at a cost of S25QO. Mr. McPherson and Allan B. Plank thought the estimate far too low. Doubt was also expressed that the service pipes could stand the pressure from a standpipe stream. After a thorough discussion of aU these matters it was tae concensus of opinion that an expert engineer should be secured to go over the situation before am-lhing definite is done, tha^ he should give his judgment on all the matters brought ouc at Friday evenings meeting, and that the officers of the committee should report at the meeting of the to~*n council the questions which have been brought to light ·with a request that council make a thorough investigation of all phases of the matter before going recklessly into the purchase of a S7-500 engine. It Tvas further decided to increase the membership of this committee and the officers were instructed to Invite business men and other citizens to join in the work of securing for the town the best fire protection possible.
