by President
The annual convention ol the B, C.
Fire Chiefs and Firemen's Association
opened on Wednesday afternoon at
No. 2 Fire Hall, Chiel Fink, ol Cranbrook, President of the Association, in
the chair.
The Convention was duly constituted. Assistant Chief Brock was
appointed secretary and an adjournment waa made till I) a. ni. Thursday.
During their stay the visitors were
handsomely entertained by Chief
Foote, who showed them the sights ol
the city, took tbem for a drive ami in
other ways ensured them an enjoyable
On Wednesday evening a banquet
was tendered to the visitors by Nos. 1
and 2 Brigades. The banquet was held
at the Central Hotel, and Messrs.
Abrahamson Bros, presented an excellent bill ol fare. Tbe tables were very
prettily decorated with llowers. A
pleasant feature ol the banquet was
the presence ol the ladies, the Bremen
being attended by their wives and
Mayor Lindmark presided, supported
on his right by Mr. W. M. Lawrence,
President ol the Board ol Trade, and
Mrs. Lawrence, and on his lelt by
Chief Fink, Mrs. Fink and the other
Chiels Foote and C. Abrahamson
were croupiers.
The Mayor, in opening the toast
list, spoke of tbe splendid banquet
provided lor them by Messrs. Abrahamson Bros., while to Mr«. Abraham-
son was due tbe credit of the beautiful
setting out ol the tables before them.
He proposed tbe toast ol " The King,"
which was accompanied by the singing
of the National Anthem, led by Mr.
W. M. Lawrence.
Tbe Mayor then proposed "Sinter
Cities,'' coupled with the names ol
Chief Fink, Mayor of Cranbrook and
Chiel Davidson, of New Westminster.
He spoke of tbe importance of the
Convention which they were cow
met to honor. One of the most im
purtiuit parts ol city administration
was the tire department, which existed
lor lhe protection of their homes and
The loast was drunk witb honors.
Chiel Fink in reply said he was glad
to see the .sisterly leeling existing
between the cities of British Columbia, and instanced the help which
Cranbrook, the city he represented,
had rendered on that tateful day tn
the sister town ol Fernie, represented
by his friend, Chief McDougall. He
regretted there was not a larger representation ol Bremen, but many ol
them had gone to the Fair at Seattle
He was glad to see the attendance ol
the Imliei-. which would have the
etVect ol milking them look to their
behaviour at sli events. (Cheers)
He urged them to support liberally
their lire administration, and could
say (ur the city he represented Unit so
iong as he hud anything to do with it
he would see that policy was still
coutinued. (Cheers). He rolerrod to
the good that resulted (rom exchange
ol visits betwefl i representatives ol
different cities and even between the
citizens tliemselves. fCheers). He
warned them against allowing politics
to enter the fire brigade administra
tion.   (Cheeis).
The Mayor I hen propmod 'I Our
Visitors," coupled witli tiie names of
Chiels McDougall, ol Fernie, and
Dick, of North Vancouver.
Chief McDougall referred tn the
good work ol tlie tire department! ol
cities. He reviewed the story ol the
latetul day in August, ol last year
when the city lie represented was destroyed within twn hours, and only the
ruined walls and chimneys were left.
Ile referred tu the g nsi work done by
the Convention last year when tbey
sent a delegation to the Provincial
Government to urge legislation to pre
vent lorest tires. The result had been
legislation which would have the
good effect ol stopping much cure
lessiiess iu future. He instanced the
till..iv leeling shown Fernie by the
neighboring cily of Cranbrook during
their time ol trial. He said the lesson
ol his lire experience wss that cities
should lie ready to protect tliemselves,
and the only way to protect against
lire was lots ol apparatus, hose and
water.   (Cheers).

Opera House Architect in Trouble-Wants Guillotine Instituted for the City Council-
Warm Discussion
R. Tapping wrote the city council
last night complaining the C.I'.R. had
chopped down his bill board on Campbell Avenue. He tailed to see why it
should couie down and said the Mayor
promised to have it reinstated north
of the track and he asked this be done
within three days.
His Worship asked Mr. Tapping on
what date he made the alleged promise?
Mr. Tapping did not know but
thought it was in January.
The Mayor did not see how Mr,
Tapping got such an impression.
These bill boards were no credit to the
city and were being put out every
where elsa. These boards ot Mr. Tapping's were on C.P.R. property; not
under control ol the city.
11. Tupping insisted ou what he
claimed to be his rights.
Tbe Mayor said the Council had a
large amount of business to transact
that night and could nut have its
time wasted by matters witli which
tbey need nothing to do. He must
retuse to allow Mr. Tapping tu take
up their time further on this matter.
Mr. Tapping again insisted on having his say.
The Mayor said he in list insist on
Aid. Wells—Then the damage on
the part of tbe city so lur as Mr.
Tapping isciuicerued is nothing. It
is a matter between the C.I'.R. and
Mr. Tapping.
The Mayor—Ves, the C. P. It. cut
down the boards.
Aid. Macdonald—Has Mr. Tapping
any hoards on the street ?
The Mayor—No I According to this
letter Mr. Tupping wants this board
moved lo C.P.R. properly. The city
has no control over that and can do
nothing witb it.
Aid. Wells moved, Aid. Sawyer
seconded, that the damage having
been done on C.P.R. property, the
matter is not within tho province of

Aid. Tapping—Can't I hive the

The Mayor—You can so long as
you are reasonable. How soon will

Mr. Tapping—You passed tbat

on it.
The Mayor—Complaints huve come

being done for the public's salety.
Mr. Tupping—You can shut it up if
you like. The Council insisted mi
tliese boards being removed. Is thut
uot correct ?
Tlie Mayor—Yes.
Mr. Tapping—Mr. Kilpatrick came
to mi: aboul. it, and the Mayor
stated he was arranging with Mr.

Mr. Tapping—I huve the floor now.

Kevelstoke is the most centrally
situated city in British Columbia
for tbe meeting of conventions, and
it is gratifying to see the spirit of
hospitality that is extended to
visitors to these conventions. This
hospitality is appreciated in turn,
and helps greatly to advertise Revelstoke favorably throughout the
'rovince. The Mail-Hkuald endeavors to do ils share to promote
the interest of Revelstoke as the convention city by furnishing us full
reports as possible of such proceedings. In this way we have rebutted the argument recently riiieeil
by a jealous coast paper against
the recognition of Revelstoke as
the convention city. This paper
made the charge that the press here
could not give conventions as full
reports and publicity as the coast
press. The report we are publishing of the Firemen's Convention is
probably fuller than would be supplied by any other newspaper in
British Columbia, and the Mail-
Herald will adopt the same policy
as regards future conventions held
in this city, which we are anxious
to see recognised us the chief convention centre of the I'acilic Province.

suow was melted alter some dirticulty

This was the lirst drink they had
since leaving Twin iiutte, 21 hours
previous, and to some extent accounted for the rather tlmv progress made,
especially during the morning. Alter
a refreshing meal Messrs. Copeland
aud Siegfried descended about 1000
feet to a valley where they could see a
stream, and camped at what they pre

up,   (Cheers).
The next toast was ''Our Fire Department," coupled with the unmee of
Chiefs Foote and Abrahamson, and
Assistants Brock and Needhani, The
Mayor spokt of the hearty way iu
ivhich the two lire brigades in Revelstoke were working together. When
ihe citizens were divided on other
matters the firemen seemed to pull
-till closer together. (Clicers). The
Oity Cuuncil endeavored to support
the Brigades in every possible way,
but it must be remembered the firemen were rendering them a great
service.   (Cheers)
Chiel Foole said that while he was
Instrumental in getting this convention lor Revelstoke he wns disappointed th»l they had not a larger attendance. He did not think the Bremen
-huulil have allowed lhe attractions at
■Seattle to interfere with their duty
here. (Cheers.) He reviewed the history nl the two tire brigades in Kevelstoke nod said tbey got along as
brothers though they worked under
separate organisations. Sometimes
they thought the citizens did not
ipprecitite tlieir work, but lie must
say this lor the present mayor and
council—they had given the brigades
all the assistance they had asked.
They had the best lire alarm system
in the world—the Gamewell system.
The boxes would riog in, and they
would know just where the lire was
nt once and so avoid any loss of time.
Where danger was a fireman was
always ready, and he gave instances
he had seen st tires at Vancouver and
Seattle. He thanked the mayor and
aldermen lor acceptiug their invitation. (Cheers.) He thought it was a
departure on the right lines to have
the ladies with tbem to look alter
them.   (Cheers.)
Chief Abrahamson brielly acknowledged the toast.
Assistant-Chiel Brock pointed out
the danger spots in Kevelstoke from a
fireman's poiut of view, as for instance
tbe burner at the Bowman mill. Fire
brigades could do much to lessen lire,
were it not lor the adverse criticism to
which volunteer brigades were sub
jected by reportiug such matters to
the city council. He urged steps being
taken to prevent fires in the cities s
far as possible. He was pleased to
see the One gathering they had tbat
night.    (Cheers.)
Assistant-Chiel Needham said if the
other parts of the city worked aB well
together as lhe firemen they would
achieve better results.   (Cheers.)
The next toast was "The City Council and Board ol Trade," coupled with
the names ol Aid. F. B. Wells and W.
M. Lawrence, President ol the Board.
Aid. Wells said it had always been
gratifying to them to see the able way
in which the Fire Brigades had fulfilled tlieir duties. He was glad to see
this convention and the work it wsb
duing by the exchange ol iieas.
Mr. Lawrence spoke ol the entire
trust the business men of the city
showed in the ability of their lire brigades, aud with the city council doing
all they could the interests ol the
town were well preserved. They had
every confidence in tlieir brigades.
The one source of weakness wsb the
possible want of water hut he was sure
that was a matter the city council
would take steps to remedy. (Cheers )
The Mayor proposed "The Ladies,"
coupled wfth the names of Aid. Macdonald and Fireman Squarehriggs who
Chiel Fink said that as President of
the I). C. Fire Chiels and Firemen's
Association he wished to express the
thanks and appreciation ol the association to tlie citizens for the splendid
way in which thoy had entertained
them while here. He bad never
visited a town wliore there was so
much kindly feeling shown toward the
lire department, and be was veiy glad
to see it.    (Cheers.)
Mayor lindmark, in responding,
said reference had been made to the
danger to the town Irom the burner
at the Bowman mill, but they were
working on a plan to make lho city
sale. Instructions had been given to
the Chiel ol Police to see that the
hotel regulations as to lire escapes
were strictly complied with, and no
carelessness allowed to exist. They
were also ligmiiig on locating a lurthei
water supply. They were also eliminating the danger ol lire traps in public
incident Fink, in taking tho chair
st the Third Annual Convention nl
British Culumbii Fire Chiefs and
Firemen at tlio City Hall on
Thursday,  called   on   Chiel   Foole   to
iiitrodiico   Mayor   Lindmark   to  the
lhe Mayor then welcomed the delegates and was glad  to see  the oldest
city on the Coast represented by Chief
Davidson nl New Westminster, II"
was glut! lu see the Crow's Nest, die
triot bo well represented,andeBpeoiillv
by that happy combination uf Mayor
and Fire Chiel in ihe poison of Mr.
Fink ol Cranbrook. He urged tliem
to go on with their good work despite
tho adverse criticism to which they
were sometimes subjected. They had
in their work the highest satisfaction
that could fall to the lot ot men, tbe
satisfaction of doing their dity Ior the
public interest. (Cheers), He had
this to say fur Kevelstoke, that notwithstanding their other differences,
the City Council, over which he had
the honor of presiding for the past
two years, had pulled together for the
good of the city (cheers), aud that was
also the principle on which their fire
brigades were working. (Applause).
With a central station they mighi be
able to do more efficient work, and he
looked forward to the time when they
would have that and their own horses
in readineBS lor emergency. Tlie
question ol a paid brigade would event
ually come up, hut in view of tl c
hearty way in which lho present
brigades hud worked together lie
doubted whether he would he iu favor
ol a paid brigade. Ilo extended to
them the hearty welcome ol the city
and assured them ol its interest in
tbeir deliberations.
President Fink thanked the Mayor
lor the welcome extended, and said
they appreciated the kindness shown
them. They admired the beauty ol
Kevelstoke, its pretty shade trees aud
its flower gardens, nnd thoy had never
had a more beany reception extended
to them than they had received here.
While he was mayor ot Cranbrook for
the Becond term, he had been ten
years chiel of the fire brigade, and of
the two duties he prolerred the latter.
During his two terms ol office, the
Council, with which he waB associated,
had worked in harmony, and bad done
good work.
Chief McDougall (Fernie) thanked
the Mayor and cilizeus ol Kevelstjke
Ior the splendid reception accorded
them, and would favor Kevelstoke as
the point tor another convention. He
regarded the occupation of tire chief
or fireman as one ol the noblest callings in life. It was a noble, unselfish
work, devoted to the saving ol the
property and lives of oti ers. He
thanked the Mayor for the welcome
extended to them and he thanked
Chief Foote for the manner in which
he bad arranged for this convention,
Chief Davidson, ol New Westminster, thanked the Mayor and citizens
ol Revelstoke lor the kindness extended
to them. He hoped soon to see the
Fire Department here equipped with
horses and a paid brigade, which
Kevelstoke would soon require il the
time hsd not already come lor it.
Tbe Mayor acknowledged their expressions of appreciation and assured
them of as hearty a welcome when
they met hero again. He congratulated Chief AhrahaniBun on the
splendid way iu whicL he had euter-
tained ihem the night before. He was
glad they made tbe departure ol having tbe ladies with them at tiie banquet, as it added an elevating tone to
the happy event

The members of volunteer departments nn' rarely paid anything and
those of tin- regular departments receive a bare  living: yet, in im ml eases,
we are expected to upend twenty four
huiiiN a day ami six days each week
not only lighting  llres lhat may ouoiu
but duing nil we can to improve our
departments, and then, if we wish io

to'd, in must eases, t hal we will lie
allowed lo leave lhe cily but must pay
our own expenses. Gentlemen, this
is not righl. uui' expenses should be
paid by the oity thai gels the benefit
nf mu' deliberations here, I defy anyone tu prove that our time is lost in
our annual meeting, even if we did
nothing except tell each other huw we
conducted uur respective departments.
Our guud old fiiend Chief Deasy says
it bus been an uphill fight in the past
years but we will gain recognition
before many more have passed. Our
mayors and counoilmen usually sny il
is only a holiday, We want and expect
the city to pay the expense when we
ask to attend our conventions. Thero
is a certain fascination in Are fighting
but most of us want a little of the
financial goods of this world us well as
the fascination and glory,
I refer with muoh regret to the hnlel
Hoe which receiilly occurred in Vernon.
The luss uf life iu Ihis lire is evidence
In abundance of the necessity uf this
Association demanding more stringent
fire escape laws.
The permit system   permitting the
burning of brush—should be entirely
done uwuy with dining t be monl lis of
July, August and September, uml
while this Association sent n strong
delegation lo Victoria lo pluce this
mul ler befure lhe Government, Mule
bus been done except appointing more
men as lire wardens. The towns of
Fernie und Cranbrook were again this
year in grave danger and the loss to
the Guvorninlnl in dues and expenses
should be an incentive tothointodo
something. I expect there are a number of papers to bu read so I will take
up no inure of your time. In closing
I wisli again to thank you for electing
me to the position of President of so
Important a body as the B. C. F, C.

lo put his shoulder to the wheel and
innke next year's meet a huge success.

receipts and expenditure,  but in lho
absence  of   Chief  Deasy,   whu  had
