Some time ago I drew the atlen-'ion of the council I the tlagaj'iint disregard for by-law No. "J which .-o adequately prevail- f.r the prevent ion of fires. To-d y I rcL'ivt to s.iy, i.ri!!er are not niiprovetl uid th cit iz-iis apparent';,' ai'p-.ir to U-nvklessiy indifferent lo this important 'piistion. Fortune lias ,,i favored this town that imuiy are beginning to forget hat sin h disasters as fires exist, until they nay be sharply reinii.ded some day by seeing th"ir own promises I -veiled to the ground. If is to be regretted that the tini" of our Fire Inspector i so taken up with other ma'bis as to pred'nl" all hope it his ever intending to the pressing wa its of the above by-law. Thetime has arrived when something must be done. As the renreseutative of insurance interests, which are growing largely in this town, 1 nm c impelled at this juncture to take the m itter in hami. I do not do so, however. ). foie announcing th.' fact. After this I ntend to report, any cases of flagrant disregard of a ny of the clauses of l ho by-law and parties concerned will either have to comply with it or refuse at their peril. 1 am conscious in so doing that I shall gain l ie enmity of some, but on the other hand I cannot but hope that all right thinking citizens will give me their support iu tb.'u in. itter. In protecting the. interests of my companies I am Le-t beiielittitig those of i ho citizens generally. While it i" pie ising to note that clauses l to 1 1 are being slow ly carried out, there are still many transgressors. Clauses PJ and lo do not appear to be known. Th'.'y will be interesting reading to some. Coming to clause 14, ladders 1 find, are as il rule placed where there is the least chance of a conflagration. Clause lo is indicated to the blacksmith. Lumber merchants attention is drawn to clause 10 which provides that no lumber shall be oiled within 00 feet of any building. Clause 18 livery stables and carpenters shops and now in open violation of this and the respective proprietors attentions are drawn therein. Last, but not least, clauses 10 to -'l 1 have simply to say that there is too much coal and other oils in town and for the safety of property, if not ives, must be removed forthwith. Iu conclusion, as everyone knows, the most dangerous period of the year is now coming on and it would bo well for all citizens to insist on the carrying out of this by-law. It is simply suicidal for merchants ami others to lull themselves with the fancy that all is safe. These are dangers which they cannot despise. A serious fire would incur a serious loss cveu to the insured and in that iigiit it behoves every property holder not only to make his own premises reasonably safe but to see that his neighbors do the same. I shall regret, personally, having to lay information against iiiy one but as the representative of important interests, I am bound to see them protected. Thanking you for your space. Yours truly, F. W. Petto-. We understand that Crowfoot has forbidden he buildersto proceed with the erection of the new agency buildings on Old Sun's reserve, being under the impression that it is intended for a mounted police post. Ihe objection on the part ot that astute polenta to to the police being stationed on the reserve is only natural since it is reported that there are a number of strayed (? ) horses at the Crossing, for the reden p'.iou of vvhic'i a fixed tariff of $10 i Head has been established by flu finders. Considering how ea-y it is for the blameless savage to find horses on the prairie, the owners of which are not avare at the hmo that they have lost, any, there s. ems to be money in this siheme. We flunk the idea of a police post near Gleiclicn an excellent one. It should be carried out in V of.tlie vypund-d susceptibilities of tin tiioiiurcii oi: Ihe lih'MM members of elections.
