was on fire. Mr. Pratico, who also
lives in the vicinity, was informed and
an alarm was raised in response to
which Brigade No. 2 turned out.
The Brigade was unable to render

has for some time heen apparent in
I feel that the time is opportune
I to shake off the strangle-hold this
individual rule has upon the com-

unconquerable. If so it is only
because the voting public has lopt
its convictions and its co'irage.
This 1 refuse to believe, Soch a.
thing is conquerable. < ireater things
have heen done. The people have
only to assert themselves and by
their ballots on election day de-
