Gentlemen : — 

Agreeably to the Ordinance of the City regulating the Fire 
Department, I most respectfully submit the following Report, con- 
taining a list of the officers and members of the Department, and 
the condition of the apparatus in their charge ; the number of fires 
the past year ; together with the amount of and insurance on the 
same. Also, the number of reservoirs, hydrants, wells and other 
sources from which water can be obtained, in case of fire, and the 
expenses for the year ending at date. 

The Department still continues in good condition ; the Companies 
are full, and when called upon are as prompt as ever ua the perform- 
ance of all duties required of them. 

I am most happy to state that there has been, comparatively with 
years past, a decrease in the number of fires. 

The new Engine ordered for Howard Company No. 3, has been 
duly received, and thoroughly tested to the entire satisfaction of the 
Board and the Company who have it in charge. The 600 feet of 
Hose, ordered by the City Council, has also been purchased and 
equally distributed to the several Engine Companies. 

The Engines and other apparatus belonging to the Department 
are in good condition. 

Respectfully submitted,
