Gentlemen: —

list of the officers and members of the Department, and the con- 
dition of the apparatus in their charge ; the number of fires the 
past year ; together with the amount of 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 in the perform- 
ance of all duties required of them. 

I am pleased to state that in the growth of the City, fires are 
comparativly less than in former years. 

The twelve hundred feet of Hose, ordered by the City Council, 
has been purchased and equally distributed to the several Companies. 

The Engines and other apparatus belonging to the Department
