TION OF CITY COMPLAIN OF -INSUFFICIENT
Sonio of tho patrons of tho natural
gas company complained this morn-
ing that tho supply of gas was Insuf-
ficient for their needs. Some of tho
houses were cold and some difficul-
ty was had in cooking breakfast. The
Ardmorelto visited tho gas company
and found that tho trouble was confin-
ed to tho northeast part of town. Tho
danger was seen by tho gas company
sonio wefks ngonnd an order was at
once made fu'.i a regulator which will
be placed in that section of tho city.
When that la ilono tho supply of gas
will bo ns bountiful there as in other
sections of tho town. Tlio pressure
in that section Is not what it bhould
bo and tho peoplo aro given tho as-
surance that tho troublo will bo rem-
edied by tho gas company within a
Some of tho families who wero
bothered with poor pressuro and lack
of gas thought at oiico thut tho supply
of gas was limited and the lighting of
fires in every section of the city at
tho saiiio time had exhausted tho
gas. Tho supply however is as strong
when everybody is using it ns when
only ono customer is using It.
All former records of the town In
quick telegraph service were smash-
do tills morning to smithereens by
tho Postal Telegraph company. Lovo
it Thurmond sent a message from
hero nt 10: r.O to Now York City and

Chief Slaughter Thinks the Latest
Machinery Should Dc nought
and Produces Figures to
Show Saving to City.
In the adinlnlstruUou of municipal
affairs there is no other department
of moro Interest to tho tnxpayurb
than tho flro doparUneut. No city
Is Justifiable In keeping a poorly
equipped dopartmont for fighting
flro when tho men who iwn proper-
ty subject to loss are the largest
contributors to tho tax fund. Ard-
moro has had am ot excellent de-
partment for n town of this Hizo
but machinery nnd hose wear out
after awhile tho town Is growing
larger nnd longer run nro required
to bo nmde. The city has already uf-
fored ono very heavy losa on ac-
count of lack of proper equipments.
Chief Slaughter 1ms been with tho
department for sovoral years ho
himself is a property owner ho has
studied tho situation c'.refully this
summer ho nindo a visit to Chicago
nnd to Toledo for tho purposo oi
becoming moro thoroughly acquaint-
e d with modern flro fighting ma-
chinery. Tho chief Is of tho opinion
that tho city should purchaso nuto
machinery for flro fighting. Ho snya
that quicker runs can bo made.
Especially is a great deal of time
to bo gained when long runs nro re-
quired for tho reason that tho auto
can run tho second inllo ns quickly
as tho first while with horses the
same rulo cannot bo true. Tho es-
timated cost of equipping with auto
wagons is hero given:
Ono combination chemical and
hoso wngon $3000.
Ono chemical engine. $2000.
Ono hoso wagon. $2000.
Ono hook and ladder truck $3000
Two thousand feet hose $1700.
To equip with motor power costs
$000 less nnd add to this the amount
that can bo realized from tho equip-
ments now on hand nnd that would
not bo needed which Is 2$325 shows
n saving under the nuto systom of
To properly equip the present sta-
tion tho following new cqulpmonts
Ono combination chomIc.il and hoso
Ono hook nnd ladder truck $2000.
Two horses $100.
Two thousand feet of hose $2000
In enso horses aro ihctalned a now
station is needed and tho estimated
cost of equipping tho new station Is
Lot and building $3000.
One hoso wngon $1000.
. Horses and harness $500.
Two thousand feet hose $2000.
These figures compiled by Chlof
SlaiiKhter shows the relntlvo cost of
adding new machinery to tho protsont
station and establishing a now station
comimred with equipping ono central
ctatlon with auto wagons. Tho saving
oan bo readily seen.
Under tho proposed now systom tho
cost of maintaining tho dopartmont is
much less. Horses nro not to bo fed
and fewer men aro required.
