FIRE DEPARTMENT. 



Report for the Year and Quarter Ending December 31, 1904. 



Fire Department, City of New York, ' 
Nos. 157 AND 159 East Sixty -SEVENTH Street, V 

Borough of Manhattan, July 28, 1905. J 

Hon. George B. McClei 丄 an. Mayor of The City of New York, City 
Hall, Borough of Manhattan : 

Dear Sir 一 I have the honor of transmitting to you herewith, as 
required by section 1544 of the Charter, the annual report of the Fire 
Department for the year 1904, which includes reports for the last quarter 
of that year, and in doing so permit me to say, generally, concerning the 
work in the Department : 

Upon taking charge of this Department, January i, 1904, and in 
pursuance of your direction, I began an inquiry to ascertain the steps 
necessary to meet its plainly evident needs. It was apparent from the 
outset that the Department was far behind the demands made upon it by 
the establishment, growth and development of the Greater New York. 
This is not said in criticism of any previous administration. It was a 
condition largely brought about by the consolidation and due in a great 
measure to the lack of financial resources. With a view to bringing the 
Department nearer abreast of the development of the City, a plan for its 
progress and extension was outlined and since then has been carefully 
followed. This plan included the following purposes for the betterment 
of the Department : 



The extension of the paid system to Richmond Borough and to that 
section of Queens Borough now covered by the volunteer companies 
, along the lines of the largest populations. 

The reorganization of the fire-boat fleet and the addition of new boats 
thereto. 

The erection of new apparatus-houses where most needed through- 
out the boroughs covered by the paid department. 

The repair and rehabilitation of some of the present houses which 
have been rendered almost unfit for their purposes ; the purchase of 
much needed additional apparatus. 

Investigation of the entire telegraph system throughout all the 
boroughs for the purpose of definitely ascertaining what is the best way 
to proceed to secure for the City the most serviceable and effective means 
of transmitting fire alarms. 

The enlargement of the uniformed force and the allowance to its 
members of more time off. 

The reinforcement of the Bureau of Combustibles made necessary 
by the unparalleled amount of construction going on throughout the City, 
with a view to minimizing the dangers arising from the use of explosives. 

Through your aid and the co-operation of the other members of the 
Board of Estimate and Apportionment, and of the members of the Board 
of Aldermen, the work of carrying this comprehensive plan into effect 
has materially progressed. 

Immediately upon taking up the work of this Department, the 
question of safe-guarding theatres was the first to be considered, and was 
undertaken at your suggestion in co-operation with the Health Depart- 
ment and the Department of Buildings. The theatre owners and man- 
agers, as a rule, responded readily and willingly to the recommended 
changes, and as a result of the joint investigation made at that time and 
the compliance with the orders issued, the theatres of the city were made 
safer and the public was afforded a much larger measure of protection and 
security. 



The arrangements for the extension of the paid department are 
already perfected. It is expected that it will be installed in Rockavvay, 
Far Rockaway and Arverne in Queens by September i, and in Richmond 
by October i. 

The fire-boat fleet has been reorganized and made more effective than 
ever in the Department's history, according to the opinion of those best 
qualified to judge. Certainly this arm of the service never did as effective 
work as it has done during the past year. It has been formed into a 
separate battalion, under the command of a Battalion Chief who confines 
himself wholly to this work. There are seven fire-boats in the fleet. 
Three new powerful boats of the most modem types are now being 
planned and will be in course of construction within the next few months. 
When they are in commission all the boroughs will have additional water- 
front protection. 

The building of new apparatus-houses and the acquirement of sites 
in sections now uncovered is proceeding with due speed, as is also the 
purchase of additional apparatus. The number of buildings finished 
since January i, 1904, in the Greater City is 21. The number now under 
way or projected is 14. The repair work has been pushed to the limit of 
time and as far as the funds would allow. 

Investigation of the necessities of the fire alarm system has been 
made under my direction by this Department. Permission has also been 
granted to the Fire Underwriters to conduct investigation by an expert 
of their own selection. When the reports are in they will be carefully 
collated, and upon them will be based the recommendations from this 
Department, which it is hoped, will result in securing any changes that 
may be deemed necessary and beneficial. - 

The uniformed force of this Department has been greatly enlarged. 
On January i, 1904, it numbered 2,972. On the date of the transmission 
of this report it numbered 3,500. The detailed report which follows gives 
the number as it stood on January i, 1905. 

To aid the Bureau of Combustibles in coping with the danger arising 
from the increased use of high explosives, owing to the great works of 



8 



construction in progress throughout the City, I have detailed fourteen 
uniformed men for inspection duty at the points where the greatest 
amount of blasting is being done, with instructions to all that the law is 
to be enforced rigidly. ' 

On February 9, 1904, Edward F. Croker was reinstated by the 
Appellate Division of the Supreme Court as Chief of Department, and 
this decision settled satisfactorily the question "of command of the uni- 
formed force. 

Early on the morning of February 8, 1904, by your direction, at the 
request of the Mayor of Baltimore, men and apparatus of this Department 
were sent to that city to aid in subduing the great conflagration which 
had begun on the previous day. 

The force sent to the assistance of the Baltimore Department was 
made up of Engine Companies 5, 7, 12, 13, 16, 26, 27, 31, 33 and Hook 
and Ladder Company 5. The record made by the Firemen of this City 
in Baltimore called forth the compliments of the officials and the citizens 
of the afflicted city, and by the press of the United States in general. 
Battalion Chief John P. Howe was in command of the New York Fire- 
men at Baltimore. 

It is but my duty to say of the officers and men of this Department 
that all reports made to me show that they were never more vigilant, 
never in a higher state of efficiency and never working in better harmony 
than now. Soon after I came into this Department I was convinced that 
the two platoon system of fire duty, which was then being vigorously 
agitated, would not be a good thing either for the fire service or for the 
Firemen, but that it would work against the interests of the men and to 
the demoralization of the force. I therefore opposed the two platoon bill 
before the Senate Committee in Albany in April, 1904. I, however, 
promised to give the plan a fair trial in one of the battalion districts. The- 
bill was never reported out of committee. It would have cost the City 
about $1,500,000 per year to have put this idea into effect. The trial of 
the two platoon project was made in the Third Battalion District, begin- 
ning December 5, 1904, and ending March 12, 1905. It was found to be 



9 



wholly unfit for the purpose of this Department, and I directed the aban- 
donment of the trial. At the time of taking this action, in order to keep 
the promise made to the men I directed that in addition to the one day off 
in every five, the men should have twelve hours' additional leave three 
times each month. That is three leaves of thirty-six hours each month, 
and three leaves of twenty-four hours each month. This in addition to 
the fourteen days' vacation annually. It was my intention to have these 
leaves enjoyed by the officers as well as by the Firemen, but that was 
found not to be practicable at the outset of the arrangement. I am now 
endeavoring to arrange matters so that the officers can have the additional 
leave in the near future. In determining the two platoon question, and 
substituting for it the additional leave, this Department has saved the 
City a very great amount of money, and the action so taken has added 
much more to the comfort and the satisfaction of the men than the in- 
troduction of the two platoons could have accomplished for them. 

Very respectfully, 

' Nicholas J. Hayes, 

Fire Commissioner.

Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES, Fire Commissioner : 

Dear Sir ― I have the honor to transmit herewith for your information annual 
report for the year 1904, of the Bureau, Chief of Department, comprising a report 
of operations, statistics of fires, appointments, resignations, dismissals, reinstatements, 
retirements from the service, deaths in service and those relieved or retired from 
service, a register of the officers of the uniformed force in active service, etc. 

On December 31, 1904, the total membership in the uniformed force, boroughs of 
Manhattan and The Bronx, was 1,917 officers and members, and the number of alarms 
responded to by the above force during the year was 8,480. 

The fire extinguishing force consisted of 79 engine companies, including 5 fire- 
boats, 27 hook and ladder companies, 10 companies being known as " double engine 
companies " and 5 known as " double truck companies/' consisting of an average 
of 3 officers and 22 members, all equipped with double sets of apparatus and formed 
into two sections, one of which remains in quarters for the purpose of covering un- 
protected territory during the time the other section responds to fires; i engine and i 
hook and ladder company are equipped with searchlight engines, which are used at 
night fires, and i engine and 3 hook and ladder companies are equipped with water 
towers. 



12 



To each company is assigned a district within whose limits commanding officers 
are responsible for violations of laws, etc., condition of alarm boxes, hydrants, build- 
ings, etc. 

Apparatus companies are organized into battalions, numbering from the First 
to the Eighteenth Battalions, inclusive, averaging about six companies to a battalion, 
each under the command of a Chief of Battalion ; these battalions in turn are divided 
into five divisions, each under the command of a Deputy Chief of Department, as fol- 
lows : First Division, comprising the First, Second, Third and Fourth Battalions ; 
Second Division, the Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Battalions ; the Third Division, 
the Tenth, Twelfth and Sixteenth Battalions ; the Fourth Division, the Ninth, Eleventh 
and Thirteenth Battalions, and the Fifth Division, the Fourteenth, Fifteenth, Seven- 
teenth and Eighteenth Battalions. 

The notable fires transmitted herewith are such as have necessitated the calling into 
service of a large number of apparatus companies, by reason of the area and magnitude 
of the fires, or which have been emphasized by large loss of life or great pecuniary loss, 
or otherwise marked by exceptional circumstances. 

During the year Engine Company 78 (fireboat "Geo. B. McClellan") was organized 
and placed into service, affording a much needed additional protection to property 
along water fronts, and also Engine Companies 43 and 76 and 79 and Hook and Ladder 
Company 26; also building on several other apparatus houses which were started 
during the year and nearing completion, and which will be organized and placed in 
service during the early part of the ensuing year. In addition to the above, a large 
number of sites have been purchased and appropriations secured to purchase sites for 
the purpose of erecting apparatus houses in locations where they are most needed. 

While a large number of additional hydrants have been added to replace those of 
antiquated pattern, there still exists a great need that this branch of the service be 
improved. Thousands of times during the winter this Department finds it necessary to 
thaw out hydrants, causing the loss to this Department, temporarily, of the services 
of a large number of members and apparatus, which could otherwise be utilized for 
fire service. An increased number of water mains, and the replacing of present small 
ones by others of large diameter, the installation of an underground salt water system, 
with pumping stations, etc., are matters of urgent need and should be provided with the 
lease possible delay. , 

During the month of December, 1903, the Bureau of Violations and Auxiliary Fire 
Appliances was created, taking from the Bureau Chief of Department the supervision 
of buildings as to the installing of fire appliances, etc., and while the work has pro- 
gressed under the direction of this Bureau, I am of the opinion that the Chief of 
Department, who is held responsible for the extinguishing of fires, should have super- 
vision over such matters, and therefore recommend that the Bureau be abolished, and 
in lieu thereof, it be made a branch of the Bureau Office Chief of Department. 



13 



The amendment to the rules and regulations of 1903, creating so many different 
classes in the Roll of Merit has, to a degree, affected the work of the Department, as 
it has become a practice among some members of the Department in their efforts to get 
their names placed upon the Roll of Merit, to neglect their regular fire duty at fires. 
The Roll of Merit was originally established in the Department as a Roll of Honor, to 
set forth " exceptionally meritorious acts in the line of duty, wherein the member per- 
forming same actually risked his life to save others, but under the rule promulgated in 
1903, and as it now stands, it had simply become a vehicle for members to obtain an 
additional rating in an examination for promotion. I therefore strongly recommend that 
the rules be amended so as to permit only the names of members of the Department to 
be placed thereon who have actually risked their life at fires to save others. 

The intention of the Department in the near future to create a Marine Battalion 
to comprise the fire-boats of the Department, under the command of a Chief of Battalion, 
is an excellent step in the right direction, and will materially increase the efficiency of 
that branch of the service, and with the addition of two or three new fire-boats, 
the Department will be fully able to successfully cope with fires along the water-fronts. 




ment should be made as soon as possible, and a Superintendent, with a practical knowl- 
edge ot the needs of the Department in this direction, should be appointed, and be 
directly responsible to the Fire Commissioner for the workings of his Bureau. Very 
many additional improvements are necessary in this Bureau, and as it is a most im- 
portant branch of the service, sufficient appropriation should be made with the view 
of placing this Bureau on an up-to-date basis. 

New hose, additional apparatus and more apparatus companies are required to 
enable the Department to keep pace with the ever increasing growth of the City, and 
I am pleased to state with the hearty co-operation that has been given me since your 
assuming the office as Fire Commissioner, the Department has been able not only to 
maintain but very very materially increase its efficiency. 

For the purpose of instituting a practical test to determine the merits or demerits 
of placing the Department upon a two platoon basis, i. e., dividing the hours of service 
of the members of the Department into two shifts each day, viz., 8 a. m. to 6 p. m. and 
from 6 p. m. to 8 a. m., a trial of this system was placed in operation in the Third 
Battalion, Borough of Manhattan, operated on the exact lines of a Legislative bill which 
was presented in Albany during 1904. From reports already received from the officers 
in this Battalion, as well as Chiefs of adjoining battalions, under whose directions 
these companies operated at fires, I can only say that the operation of the plan has 
only confirmed the opinions previously held by those vitally interested in the welfare 
of the Department, that the two platoon system is not only a great detriment to the 
citizens and taxpayers of this City (to say nothing of the largely increased cost), but 
has proven of absolutely not the slightest benefit to the Firemen, and has materially 



14 



'iffected the discipline of the Department in this Battalion, as shown by the increased 
numhtr of charges, the inability of the men to do the work required, etc. At an early 
dale I will forward you a complete report in detail showing the working of the system. 

I also transmit herewith copy of decision of the Appellate Division unanimously 
reinstating me as Chief of Department, which T would respectfully request be printed 
in the annual report for 1904. 

Very respectfully, 

EDW. F. CROKER, Chief of Department. 

Unanimous Decision of the Appellate Division, Supreme Court, in Reinstating Chief 

Edward F. Croker. 

At the opening of the trial many preliminary objections were interposed by the 
relator bearing upon the informality and insufficiency of the charges, and one of 
which challenged the right of the Commissioner to sit as judge. The conclusion at 
which we have arrived renders it unnecessary to discuss seriatim all of these objec- 
tions or the evidence bearing upon the guilt or innocence of the relator as stated in the 
charges. A careful consideration of the entire record shows that at the time the 
charges were made the Commissioner entertained a decided prejudice against the 
relator, and by reason of this feeling ~ which was in no way disguised 一 the relator, at 
the opening of the trial, objected to proceeding before him, requesting that the trial 
should be had before a deputy, as permitted by the Charter. The request was refused, 
the Commissioner insisting that the trial should be conducted by himself. At the 
beginning, therefore, of the proceeding which resulted in the relator's dismissal we 
have a serious question presented, viz. : Whether or not the bias and prejudice which the 
Commissioner undoubtedly entertained against the relator was so strong and of such 
a character as to cause him to convict the relator without any sufficient evidence of 
guilt. In commenting upon this feature of the case which was presented on an applica- 
tion for a stay after the relator's dismissal, the learned Judge at Special Term (Croker 
vs. Sturgis, 39, Misc. 448) said: "The question here is not as to the propriety of his 
acting under all circumstances of the case. The question is, did he have the power? 
There is no doubt that he had. It is given by statute. In a similar case it has the 
support of authority. People ex rel. Meyer vs. Roosevelt, 23 App. Div., 514; and, 155 
N. Y., 702. * * * Bias and prejudice per se can afford no ground for a stay 
just as little as bias and prejudice per se constitutes a ground for reversal. It is 
bias and prejudice tainting or affecting the result. Grant that the respondent showed 
animus, or even had he prejudged the guilt of the relator, if there was nevertheless 
uncontradicted evidence supporting any one of the charges ; evidence of a kind that 
would satisfy an impartial tribune, the judgment of dismissal based on that charge 
alone would have to stand." 

The initial difference between the Commissioner and relator seems to have arisen 
from an effort on the part of the Commissioner to compel the relator to take a vaca- 



IS 



tion. In this connection it appeared that on the 2d of August, 1902, the relator was 
granted a leave of absence for sixty days, before the expiration of which, however, 
he returned and resumed his duties as Chief of the Fire Department, for which act he 
was suspended by the Commissioner ; he protested against his suspension, and applied 
to the Courts for reinstatement, with the result that it was finally determined that the 
Commissioner had no authority to do what he did. The Court of Appeals say: "The 
Commissioner by attempting, even in the best of faith, to impose a compulsory vaca- 
tion upon the Chief of the Department, could not compel that officer to absent himself 
and thus prevent him from discharging a statutory duty. A vacation is a personal 
privilege that can be waived. * * * As long as he was Chief, with no 
charges pending against him, he could not be suspended for either a definite or indefinite 
period, and thus . prevented from obeying the statute. While the Commissioner could 
compel him to do his duty, he could not by an 'administrative order* or in any other 
way prevent him from doing his duty. (Croker vs. Sturgis, 175, N. Y., 158.)" Here, 
then, we have the beginning of what the record before us justifies us in saying seems to 
have been a preconceived plan on the part of the Commissioner to interfere with the 
relator in performing his duties as Chief. We say preconceived, because, having met 
with opposition, we find that the Commissioner, under date of September 18, 1902, wrote 
a letter to the Mayor, in which he recites the relator's opposition to the continuance 
of his vacation, hi^ suspension, the granting of a mandamus which was being con- 
tested in the Courts, and concludes with the words : "The conduct of Chief Croker 
was such that I shall, as speedily as possible, prepare charges against him and bring 
them to an early hearing, in accordance with the standing rules and regulations of the 
Department." Pursuant to this attitude of hostility which the Commissioner had 
apparently assumed, it seems that diligent efforts were made by him in every direction, 
covering practically the four preceding years, during which the relator was Chief, for 
the purpose of finding a ground or grounds upon which charges could be preferred, a 
trial had, and his removal accomplished. As a result of that effort, charges, includ- 
ing fifteen specifications, were prepared, and upon which the relator was placed on trial. 
It is not disputed but that these charges were prepared by direction of the Commissioner 
himself, although it appears that they were signed by a Clerk or Secretary in the 
Department. As many of the charges had a bearing, not only upon the honesty, integ- 
rity and good character of the relator, but also as to his competency to discharge the 
duties of his office, they should have been brought promptly if the spirit and language 
of the rules of the Department were of any force. The comment or criticism upon the 
charges arises from the fact of the stalencss of most of them and the length of 
time during which, if true either wholly or in part, and untrustworthy and incompetent 
man was permitted to discharge the duties of a very responsible position. Some of the 
specifications, it will be noticed, date back to 1899; most of them to 1900; and if our 
perusal of the record is correct, only two (neglect at the armory fire and insubordina- 
tion in refusing to obey the Commissioner and take an enforced vacation), to the year 
when the charges were made, 1902. An effort was made to prove all of the charges. 



i6 



and although a large number of them were rejected by the Commissioner as unproved, 
the nature and extent thereof show the length to which the Commissioner, or the 
prosecution as termed in the record, went to find some ground upon which the relator 
could be dismissed. 

These observations naturally lead us to a consideration of the animus presented 
at the trial with respect to the charges upon which the relator was found guilty. 
Taking them in the order as above set forth the respondent showed that on Octo- 
ber 2, 1899, some three years before the trial, the relator issued an order to Chiefs 
of Battalions to direct company commanders "to discontinue all inspections as called 
for in section no of the rules and regulations until otherwise ordered, except such 
as may be ordered from this office." The section of the rules and regulations referred 
to required inspections "in compliance with the provisions of chapter 378, Laws of 
1897, in their respective districts in the months of January and- July of each year;" 
and reports showing whether the law had been complied with; and provided that "in 
cases where reports have once been forwarded that the law has been complied with, 
additional reports need not be forwarded." Testimony was given that the Park Ave- 
nue Hotel had been reported as having complied with the law and that it was a fire- 
proof structure, and in this connection the relator testified that he sent out his order 
in obedience to oral instructions from the then Commissioner of the Fire Department 
It also appeared that section 216 of the rules and regulations provided that the Chief 
should "Not be guilty of deceptipn or evasion of any law, ordinance, rule, regulation 
or order, general, special or verbal," and that section 739 of the Charter provides that 
"The government and discipline of the Fire Department shall be such as the Fire 
Commissioner may from time to time, by rules, regulations and ordinance, prescribe," 
the rules in force to continue until modified or repealed by the Commissioner. In 
addition to this it also appeared that on the i8th of April, 1900 (two years before the 
Park Avenue Hotel fire), the relator ordered inspections "of all buildings that are 
nine stories or more in height," and reports which should state the location, number 
of stones, fire appliances, stand-pipes, etc., in such buildings, which order was sent 
in obedience to instructions from the Fire Commissioner. In March, 1902, the relator 
also sent to Battalion Chiefs copies of "the new Building Code," and stated that its 
provisions should be complied with and violations reported. The language of the 
code is that all buildings "nine stories or more (or exceeding 100 feet in height)** 
should come under the provisions of the code as to appliances, etc. The relator tes- 
tified that he did not know how the words in parentheses "or exceeding 100 feet in 
height" came to be omitted from the first letter, but that all buildings of nine stories 
.were regarded as 100 feet in height. In performing the duties ordered by the relator 
and prescribed in the code it seems that no report was made of the fact that the Park 
Avenue Hotel was not provided with the requisite fire appliances. That hotel was not 
nine stories in height, but according to the testimony admitted over objection and 
exception, it measured at one point from roof to curb 103 feet, and from the curb 



17 



to the top of a small structure on the roof 124 feet. We do not think this omission, 
in the absence of any evidence of motive, warranted the Commissioner's finding that 
the relator was Ruilty of failure tcv enforce the requirements of law for safeguarding 
the hotel and in issuing; the order of October 2, 1899. That order, it will be remem- 
bered, if the relator's testimony is credited 一 and it does not seem to be disputed-* 
was issued by direction of the then Commissioner. In any event the prior regulation 
which it is claimed was displaced did not require reports of inspections in the case 
of fireproof buildings once reported, and that hotel, it is not disputed, was reported 
and was regarded as fireproof, although subsequent events proved that it was not 
entirely so. In addition to this it appears that this order was superseded by an order 
issued the following year calling for inspections in accordance with the Building Code^ 
and although that order refers to buildings of nine stories, and omits the parentheti- 
cal words "or over 100 feet in height," there is nothing to show that its real meaning 
was not to require a compliance with the code. The evidence presented as to whether 
the hotel was over 100 feet in height was very dose, and the method of measurement 
was justly criticised by the relator, but whether it came under the rules or not was 
a matter of administration confided to members of the force other than the Chiei» 
whose duty it was to see that the regrulation was observed. It will be noticed, there- 
fore, that there is little if any evidence to support the Commissioner's finding on this 
charge. 

With respect to the charge of incompetence in the management of great fires, the 
Commissioner found him not guilty upon two specifications, but guilty upon the third, 
viz. : The Park Avenue Hotel fire, the incompetence alleged being his failure to protect 
the hotel from the antiory fire and to have the guests removed. The testimony bearing 
upon this subject shows that the fire at the armory broke out in the early morning 
hours of a stormy night, and the streets were almost impassable by reason of the 
snow, ice and water. The relator, while returning from a fire in another part of the 
city, was informed of the fire at the armory, and he at once went there and found the 
armory in a mass of flames, with the high winds carrying sparks over the car sheds, 
immediately to the south, which contained inflammable material. He ordered his men to 
protect that structure and sent a man into the Park Avenue Hotel, which was located 
on the opposite side of Fourth avenue, between Thirty-second and Thirty-third streets, 
to see that the windows were closed. He knew that the hotel had an iron and stone 
front and a brick roof, which, at the time, was covered with two feet of snow. His 
men watched the hotel, and saw that the windows were dosed. His work at the 
armory was obstructed, owing to the subway excavations, and he caused dynamite 
stored near the armory to be conveyed into the tunnel, and protected the woodwork 
at the entrance from the fire. 

The buildings contiguous to the armory he also protected, and so efficient was his 
work that no serious damage resulted to the car sheds, although the wind carried sparks 
as far south as Thirty-first street, where a small fire occurred/ In the meantime the 



i8 



hotel people had sent a man to the roof, who found that sparks coming that way were 
extinguished in the snow. A number of the guests had dressed and descended to the 
corridors of the hotel, where they stood watching the armory fire. At this time, while 
the elevator in the hotel was descending with other guests, smoke arose from below 
the elevator, and when it was stopped at the lower floor flames shot upward. This 
fire was first discovered at the foot of the elevator shaft. The relator was notified, and 
at once rushed into the hotel, where he found the elevator shaft a mass of flames, with 
fire shooting upward. He ordered a fourth alarm, and, with his men, fought his way 
up to the stairs, which were afire, through the corridors, which were ablaze, to the roof, 
and the fire was extinguished, but not until a number of the guests had lost their lives. 
Small fires had appeared in the meantime on some of the wooden window casetnents, 
and there was conflicting evidence whether these were caused by sparks from the 
armory or by the fnt from the elevator passing outward through doors and windbws 
left open by guests of the hotel. Two theories were presented as to the cause of the 
fire in the elevator ; one being that it was of an independent origin, and the other that 
it was caused by sparks from the armory passing through a small opening, which 
measured 3 by 10 inches, in the top of the shaft, thence falling to the bottom of the 
shaft, or else that such sparks passed under the hoods or flues and then down the 
flues and finally into the elevator well. It is true, as contended by the respondent, the 
relator did not have the gyests of the hotel aroused, but it appears that three alarms 
had been given before he was called to the fire, and it is undisputed that for some time 
before the fire in the hotel occurred those in charge of the hotel were well aware of 
the nature of the conAagratton which was raging at the armory, on the opposite side 
of the avenue, and had sent a man to the roof, who reported that, with snow thereon 
two feet deep, there was no danger. The guests themselves were many of them aware 
of the fire, as already said, had dressed and descended to the hotel corridors, where, 
without apparent apprehension, they were watching the armory fire. That a fire should 
occur in the hotel, as it did, was scarcely to be expected. That a spark could enter 
the small opening at the top of the shaft, pass the elevator, which was then in use, 
and, unobserved, reach the bottom of the shaft, seems improbable, and was so 
characterized by expert witnesses. We think the weight of testimony is against the 
theory that a spark got underneath the hood, descended and entered the bottom of the 
elevator well. The Commissioner, however, found that the fire did occur in one of 
the ways indicated, and for such result held the relator guilty of incompetency. In this 
connection, it must be borne in mind, the evidence shows the relator was confronted 
with many dangerous conditions which required his immediate attention, and, in 
spite of the stormy night and the headway which the fire at the armory had obtained, 
be protected the large inflammable car sheds, occupying the most dangerous position, 
the surrounding dwellings, safeguarded the wooden entrance to the subway, prevented 
the explosion of dynamite stored therein, and, with respect to the hotel, which he had 
reason to believe was fireproof, sent a man to see that the windows were closed. The 



19 



Commissioner commends the relator for his work in fighting the fire in the hotel, yet 
holds him incompetent in the management of great fires in not having: frrevented it. 
We think the fair inference to be drawn from the evidence is that the relator did all 
he could reasonably be expected to do. But had he erred in judgment at such a time, 
under the authority of People ex rel. McCabe vs. Fire Commissioner (8 St. Rep., 695), 
this would not be a sufficient cause for his removal. It was there said : "The man is 
yet to come who, in all emergencies has not blundered, whether he be lawyer, juror 
or judge, major general, minister, governor, crowned head or president, and while 
the error committed had demonstrated that as to the particular subject a failure to d«al 
with it properly could not be denied, it has not been regarded as evidence of incapacity 
to discharge the duties of the position held, or to command. * * ♦ A single error 
of judgment by him, assuming one to have been committed, is not sufficient evidence 
of the relator's incapacity to warrant his removal." 

The third charge was conversion of public property to private use. Although the 
Commissioner held that this charge was not substantiated with respect to the private 
use and appropriation of materials and work by the relator, he found him giiilty of 
conversion in permitting hose to be delivered to the Polo Grounds and to a lumber 
company on the outskirts of Brooklyn. It was conceded the hose was delivered, but 
the undisputed testimony is that it was not given, sold or loaned, but was stored at 
those places (to be used only by Firemen), because such places contained highly 
inflammable material and were both removed from fire-houses. The Charter provides 
that the Commissioner has charge of all the Fire Department property, its disposition 
and location ; and it was shown that the relator delivered such hose upon direction 
of the Commissioner. It was thus established that there was no wrong motive in what 
was done; on the contrary, it appears that the relator acted for the good of the 
service and with authority. The charge of conversion was thus destroyed. 

Another charge was that of conduct prejudicial to good order and discipline ; and, 
with respect to the several specifications, the evidence presented shows a sharp conflict 
of testimony. In the first of these specifications ― that the relator persecuted Chief 
Terpen y - ~ the conflict is between the two men, the former denying and the latter 
asserting that orders were given over the telephone (hat Foreman Clifford was to 
be prevented from attending the meeting of a benevolent association which, it was 
claimed, the relator did not favor. The relator admitted that he had, daily from 
May to September, 1900, transferred Chief Terpeny, but stated that the Chief had 
been assigned a difficult post and desired a change, even if it were to relieve absent 
Chiefs temporarily, and this work was given to him. as it was at times given to 
others, until finally a very desirable post was vacant, to which he was assigned. 

Up6n the specification relative to Chiefs Gooderson and Burns there was also a 
conflict of testimony, these two men asserting - they had spoken to the relator about 
the examination and been advised not to take it, as it was for one man only, and the 
relator denying such conversation. It was not disputed that an invitation was sent to 



20 



all Chiefs to take the examination, and a number of them did so, and two men as the 
result were promoted. It also appeared that Chief <xooderson had b«en threatened by 
the relator with charges if he did not pay several debts incurred, and he admitted 
there was an unfriendly feeling between hhnself and the relator. So, too, upon the 
third specification ~^ that the relator had declined in: the fall of 1900 to recommend 
certain members of the force for promotion owing to their refusal to join the 
benevolent association in which he was said to be interested 一 there was a conflict 
as to whether such pressure was exerted ; the men claiming they were approached by 
persons who stated they represented the relator and the relator denying that he or 
anyone with the right to represent him had niade such threats, and denying that he 
had been influenced by any consideration in failing to recommend men other than 
such as were for the good of the service and in accord with the rules of the Depart- 
ment. In this latter connection it appeared that a number of the men were not on 
the merit roll, which had been deemed a prerequisite for promotion. The. fourth 
of the specifications related to the forcing of a veteran from the eligible list in 1900. 
It appears that he was removed by an order of the Commissioner and subsequently 
reinstated ; but, though it was shown that the relator was active in seeking his removal, 
the explanation given was that the veteran was defective in eye-sight and had been 
so reported by the Medical Board. 

Upon the charge of prejudicial conduct we have contradictory evidence calling for 
the determination of a question of fact ; but at this point, the manner in which the trial 
was conducted by the Commissioner shows that the relator was not accorded a fair 
presentation of his side of the case. He attempted to show, for the purpose of dis- 
crediting the principal witnesses who testified to conversations with him, which he de- 
nied, that they had formed a conspiracy against him for the reason that they had failed 
in promotion or otherwise ; but this evidence the Commissioner persistently refused to 
receive or consider. On the other hand, however, the Commissioner, over the relator's 
objection and exception, admitted a larger amount of improper and incompetent testi- 
mony as to the rumors in the Department respecting the views and intentions of the 
relator as to men who did not join the Benevolent Association mentioned, and also 
admitted evidence as to the statements of third persons claiming to represent the re- 
lator, but who were not produced upon the trial, which statements were made in the 
absence of the relator. We think that the inferences to be drawn from the testimony 
upon these specifications are not altogether unfavorable to the relnror, and that with 
respect to them he was not accorded an impartial trial. 

Before passing to the consideration of the manner in which the Commissioner con- 
ducted the trial, it remains to say with respect to the final charge upon which the 
relator was adjudged guilty, viz., conduct unbecoming an officer, in refusing to obey 
the Commissioner by not taking his entire vacation, we have the conclusion of the 
Court of Appeals in the proceeding brought by the relator upon his suspension (Croker 
vs. Sturgis, supra) that the Chief had the right to return and take up his work, and 
the Commissioner on that point was in error. 



21 



We thus come to the fourth subject, as to whether, from the conctusions reached by 
the Commissioner and the manner in which the trial was conducted, it appears that 
the Commissioner's judgment was affected by bias and prejudice. We have already 
shown, as to the first charge of failure to enforce the requirements of law for safe- 
guarding the Park Avenue Hotel, that the evidence did not warrant the Commis- 
sioner's finding; that with respect to the conclusion that the relator was guilty of in- 
competence in the management of great fires, as shown by the Park Avenue HoUl 
fire, there was insufficient basis for such' a determination ; that upon the subject of 
conversion;. of personal property, the relator fully met the charge, and that Aipon the 
final charge on which the relator was found guilty, the Court of ^^ppeals has expressed 
an opinion contrary to that of the Commissioner. These conclusions of lh$ Commis- 
sioner, at variance with the evidence, can only be explained when it..ii recalled that 
he had expressed a determination to find some charges upon which to dismiss the re- 
lator, and for that purpose unearthed a number of matters which had never before, dur- 
ing the several years the Chief was in office, provoked criticism. With respect to the 
charges which the Commissioner was unable to find evidence to sustain, he did not as 
to some of them acquit the relator, while admitting a finding. As to the charges or 
specifications where, as we have shown, a conflict of testimony was presented, the 
relator, on the one hand, was met by Department rumors not brought home to any 
source which could be investigated, and by statements of men not named nor pro- 
duced at the trial ; and, on the other hand, he was prevented from showing that the 
principal witnesses, whose testimony supported* the charges, had formed a conspiracy 
against him, which, if proved, would have tended 16 discredit their statements. In addi- 
tion to this, we think that no one reading the record and noting the rulings made in the 
admission of evidence to prove the charges, and the exclusion of evidence* having a 
tendency to disprove them, could fail to be convinced that the relator was not accorded 
a fair and impartial trial. This not being, strictly speakiiijf, a trial in a court of law, 
but one before the head of a department who was not a lawyer, tHe technical rules of 
evidence were not applicable. By this we do noi mean that in such a case evidence 
mzy be given which would result manifestly in a mistrial, but that in a somewhat 
informal proceeding such as this the Commissioner has a wide latitude as to the kind 
of evidence which he will receive or reject. 

The discretion vested in the Commissioner as to the character of the evidence 
to be received is, not such that he could permit anything the counsel for the prosecu- 
tion thought would sustain the charges, and then exclude .the proof offered by the 
relator to rebut the inference of guilt created, where the. latter was of a high and 
even higher order of evidence as that presented to support the. charges. , This, (low- 
ever, as shown, is precisely what occurred. Although yve have i\ot ma(le an exact 
computation, we think, from our review of the record, the relator has not exaggerated 
in asserting that "during the whole trial several hundred objections were made by thjC 
relator's counsel, of which only four were sustained. Every objection, with the cxccp- 



22 



tion of two, made by* the Assistant Corporation Counsel, was sustained." That some 
of these rulings at least could not be supported was recognized by the Commissioner 
himself, because in his return to the writ he says: "It may be that incompetent tcs- 
timonv was aHowcd on the trial, but after the case was closed your respondent, after 
a consideration of the record and a consultation with the Corporation Counsel and 
his assistants who conducted the prosecution, dismissed all the incompetent testimony 
from his mind, based no action of his upon it. and to a large extent found the relator 
guilty in the respects which he did upon the relator's own testimony." A fair com- 
ment upon what mutt thus be regarded as an admission of erroneous rulings made 
upon the trial is, that however honest the Commissioner may have beeh in his effort 
to eradicate from his tnind the impression of influence produced by the testimony 
admitted, and which at the time he deemed material to the issues on trial before him, 
the relator did not get the benefit of the adverse rulings which were made erroneously 
and which excluded testimony tending to prove his innocence of the charges. 

Another comment which we think is justified by this admission as to the manner 
in which the conclusion of the Commissioner was reached is, that there was an evi- 
dent impropriety in the Commissioner taking up the record with the Corporation 
Counsel and his assistants, who, as stated, "conducted the prosecution," and being, 
as would appear, controlled by their view as to what rulings, practically all of which 
were .made at the trial upon their suggestion, were erroneous, and what testimony 
the Commissioner had a right to regard as incompetent. Having Had the aid of the 
Corporation Counsel and his assistants, as was entirely proper, in examining the wit- 
nesses and, if possible, proving the charges, there was evident impropriety in having 
those who had thus been enlisted in establishing the relator's guilt consulted in the 
final rendition of the judgment. In a criminal or civil case, where the liberty of a 
person or his property is involved, or wficrc the judge finally passes upon the facts, 
as here, it would be rei^arded as highly improper for him to surrender his own views 
on the facts and be controlled by those of counsel whose duty it is to prosecute, or 
to whose interest it is to obtain a judgment. This trial, it is true, was not a criminal 
prosecution, nor did it in a strict sense involve a right of property. It, however, did 
involve the right to a position which the relator had obtained as the result of many 
years of service in one of the departments of the City Government. As the result 
of the growth of the Civil Service system he was protected in that position to the 
extent that as long as he honestly and efficiently discharged his duty he was safe 
from removal, and he could only be removed for cause after a trial. The taw has been 
carefui to throw safeguards around the public service so as to prevent the removal 
of anyone in swch service who honestly performs his duty, and for any cause other 
tfian a breach of 4\rty, and to that end requires that before his I'emoval charges shall 
be sfMcificd, upon which the accused is entitled to a trial, and the duty is imposed 
upon those makinK the charges to sustain them by a fair preponderance of evidence. 



23 



Our conclusion upon the whole record therefore is that, beginning with a dis- 
agreement between the relator and the Commissioner, in which the Court of Appeals 
has sustained ihe position then taken by the former, the Commissioner determined 
upon seeking cause for the relator's dismissal, and openly expressed his determina- 
tion that there should be a speedy trial for this purpose; that charges were preferred 
at the Commissioner's insti^tion, taken from the relator's entire record as Chief of 
the Department and comprising' for the most part stale charges which, if they could 
have been sustained, should not have been permitted to lie dormant for so long a 
time, and for which in many instances the Commissioner was unable at the trial to 
find any foundation; that the evidence presented as to the charges did not prove the 
relator guilty, but on the contrary, with respect to some of those upon which- he was 
found guilty he was entitled to an acquittal, and with respect to the others he was 
prevented from fairly and fully presenting his defense; and that throughout the trial 
the Commissioner, in his rulinRS and by his attitude and conclusions, manifested a 
prejudice and bias which affected his judgment in holding the relator guilty and dis- 
missing him. 

It follows therefore that the writ should be sustained and the proceedings of the 
defendant annulled with costs and the relator reinstated.

January 8, 1904. Fireman Buckley upon arrival at the fire immediately ascended to

Fireman second grade Michael Callaghan, Fireman third grade Philip Hublitz, Fire- 
man fourth grade Michael J. Stevens, Fireman fourth grade Frederick Ruff and 
Fireman fourth s^rade John K. Ormond were ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, 
Class D, for meritorious conduct at fire at No 37 Broome street, Station 197, January 
28, 1904. Upon the arrival of the Fire Department the fire had entire possession of 
three rooms on the first floor and had burned through the doors and windows leading 
into the main hallway. Hook and Ladder 18 upon their arrival raised a 35-foot ladder 
to the third floor and searched same, and found several children affected by smoke 
and heat and brought them down the ladder. Foreman William R. Corcoran and 
Fireman John K. Ormond then ascended by ladder and fire-escape to fifth floor and 
found a child lying on a table unconscious from heat and smoke. She was taken 
down rear fire-escape to fourth floor, then through fourth floor to front of building, 
and down fire-escape to third floor and by 35-foot ladder to the street. 

The name of Fireman first grade Thomas J. Dunn, Engine Company 28, was 
ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class B, for meritorious action at fire at No. 
352 East Twentieth street, January 31, 1904. Fireman Dunn was returning to quarters 
from supper when he learned of the fire. He broke open the door and found the 
place heavily charged with heat and smoke; groped his way to rear and found Miss 
Bachman unconscious on a sofa and carried her to the street. 

The names of Fireman first grade John W. O'Brien, Hook and Ladder Company 
13, and Fireman first grade Louis Semansky, Hook and Ladder Company 13, were 
ordered to be placed on the Roll of Merit, Class D, for meritorious action at fire at 
No 519 East Eighty-seventh street, Station 669, on February 9, 1904. At this fire Mr. 
Leonard Erb, aged 80 years, occupying the basement, was overcome by heat and 
smoke. Fireman first grade John W. OBricn, assisted by Fireman Louis Semansky, 
effected his rescue by climbing a fence leading to a small court and reached side 
windows of the basement, which he entered, and found Mr. Erb lying on the floor; 
carrying him to the street, he was assisted by Fireman Semansky in placing him in 
an adjoining building. 

The name of Fireman third grade Adam J. Mctzlcr, Hook and Ladder Company 
21, was ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class A, for meritorious action at fire 
at No. 3SS West Thirty-seventh street, February 19, 1904. Fireman Metzlcr, who had 
run ahead of apparatus, upon reaching the fire was informed that there was a womtn 
burning to death in the apartments on fire in the cellar of said building. He immedi- 
ately proceeded to the cellar by stairway in front of the building, and made a dash 
through the hallway into door of apartment, where he found* a woman all ablaze on 
the floor and carried her out to the area way. In making the dash of about 15 feet 
through flame and smoke Fireman Metzler had the hair on his face and head slightly 
burned. 



55 



The name of Fireman second grade Michael Nugent, Engine' Company 14, was 
ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class B, for meritorious conduct displayed by 
him at the fire at No. 22334 East Twenty-third street, March 5, 1904. While proceeding 
to supper through East Twenty-third street he discovered premises to be on fire, and, 
hearing cries for help, ascended by stairway to third floor of No. 223 East Twenty- 
third street, crossed windowsills to burning building, and crawling on his hands and 
knees to the bed-room he found Mrs. Feeny in a helpless condition; taking her in 
his arms he carried her to the front window, where he passed her to other mem- 
bers of the Department who had raised a scaling ladder. 

The names of Engineer of Steamer George Lloyd, Engine Company 73, was 
ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class B, and Fireman first grade Henry W. 
Romer, Hook and Ladder C6mpany 19, Class D, for meritorious conduct at a fire 
at No. 1016 Westchester avenue, April 6, 1904. Engineer of Steamer Lloyd while on 
a 24-hour leave saw the building on fire and entered same to the top floor and found 
Mrs. Theodora Tardif there and guided her to the second floor, where the smoke 
was so thick that they had to go to the front window, and assisted her down a 25- 
foot ladder. At that time Mrs. C. Jenickc appeared at the third story window, and 
Fireman first grade Henry W. Romer procured a scaling ladder and raised it ta the 
window where the woman was. When the ladder was in position Engineer Lloyd 
went up to the window and told the woman to put her arms around his neck, which 
she did, and holding himself on the ladder with one hand he grasped the woman 
around the waist with the other and lifted her out of the window on to the scaling 
ladder and held her on same while she descended the 25-foot ladder. 

The names of Fireman first grade William Weber, Engine Company 35, Andrew 
W. Zwisler, Engine Company 14, and William M. Carter, Hook and Ladder Company 
14, were ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class A, for meritorious action at fire 
at No. 2001 Third avenue, Station 697, on May 14, 1904. The fire was found to be 
'rapidly burning in the halls and stairways of the building, and heavily charged with 
smoke, and occupants of premises hanging out of windows. Fireman Weber descended 
a 35-foot ladder to the fourth floor and assisted Mrs. Tessie KlebA and her dght- 
months-old baby, also George Florrc, down the ladder. While descending th^ ladder 
Fireman Weber was informed by citizens from the street that there was a woman 
on the third floor. He entered the room, which was heavily charged with heat and 
smoke, and, crawling on his hands and knees to middle of room, found Mrs. H. £yl 
on the floor in an unconscious condition. He attempted to drag her to window, but 
being nearly overcome by heat and smoke he was compelled to return to the win- 
dow, where he met Fireman first grade A. W. Zwisler, who assisted in dragging Mfs. 
Eyl (she being a very heavy woman) to the window, where she was taken down the 
ladder to the street. At the same time Fireman first grade William M. Carter, Hook 
and Ladder Company 14, ascended by scaling ladder to fourth floor on Third avenue 
side of the building and entered a room where he found Josephine Eyle, aged 18 



56 



months, on fire, and carried her to the window and passed her to occupants of adjoin- 
ing building. The fire in the meantime had gained considerable headway in all tlie 
halls and stairways and extended to adjoining rooms on the three upper floors, caus- 
ing great heat and stifling smoke and all means of escape for occupants cut off. 

The name of Engineer of Steamer Patrick J. Lynch, Engine Company 60, was 
ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class A, for meritorious action at fire on the 
steamboat "General Slocum," June 15, 1904. Engineer Lynch was in a yawl boat off 
foot of One Hundred and Forty-first street and East river when he saw the boat on 
fire. He rowed over near the steamer and rescued about 15 persons from drowning 
by assisting them into the rowboat and passing them to different tugboats. These 
rescues were made with great personal risk to Engineer Lynch, as the boat was in 
danger of being capsized by the people in the water grabbing hold on one side. 

The name of Fireman first grade Timothy Driscoll, Engine Company 55, was 
ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class B, for meritorious action at fire at No. 5 
Howard street, Station 146, August 15, 1904, for attempting 'to rescue Emil Kupfer 
' by ascending fire-escape ladder to the fourth floor, where he was cut off from all 
means of escape by flames bursting through window, and escaping with his life by 
having a rope lowered from roof of building. 

The name of Fireman first grade Michael J. Stevens, Hook and Ladder Company 
18, was ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class A, for meritorious action at Bre 
at No. 164 Attorney street, September 4, 1904. Fireman Stevens rescued several per- 
sons who were in a semi-unconscious condition from rooms on the fifth floor and 
removed them to fire-escape. Fireman Stevens had to enter rooms that were heavily 
charged with smoke and heat three different times, and the rescues were made at con- 
siderable personal risk. 

The name of Fireman first grade Matthew J. Campbell, Engine Company 54, was 
ordered placed on the Roll of Merit, Class B, for meritorious conduct at fire at No.

Fire Department, City of New York, 1 
Bureau of Inspector of Combustibles, I 
Nos. 157 and 159 East Sixty-seventh Street, f 
New York, January 11, 1905. J 

Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES, Fire Commissioner : 

Dear Sir 一 I beg leave to report a summary of the operations of this office for the 
year 1904. 

The receipts of the office from the oil licenses have decreased this year, as it will 
continue for an indefinite period, owing to the erection of new buildings and the 
destruction of old buildings for bridges, etc. This decrease will continue until eventu- 
al ly that will be aim ost wiped out. In years past it has been our main source of 
revenue, but I believe we will have to look to other means to continue the high aggre- 
gate that has hereto 化 re come from this Bureau. 

The special permits have increased in the $2 section about 12 per cent., while 'those 
in the $5 section have decreased about 150 per cent., while the $10 licenses have increased 
about 140 per cent. In the issue of these licenses a survey has to be made; the result 
is that the place where the storage is allowed is visited at least three times by a member 
of this staff before the operation is completed, embracing as it does the storage of crude 
drugs, paints and oils and other dangerous substances, it requires a skilled surveyor to 
do that class of work. 

The highest grade of special permits has increased 66 per cent. ; that relates to the 
chemical manufacturers, which requires special attention and constant watching in 
order that their various substances may not mingle and create serious explosions. 

The sale of powder has decTOsed slightly during the past year, owing to the 
operations of the new regulations, those who have gone out of the trade not being 
able to comply with them. 

In the display of fireworks it makes it necessary for the employees of this Bureau 
to attend the firing of them, and that keeps the employees of the Bureau on the street 
until 10 p. m., about four weeks in the year. 

The street fires have increased slightly, and I notice that one of the Bureaus 
attached to the Department of Streets is issuing permits for the building of fires, and 
in this way depriving this Bureau of that revenue. 

The sales of explosives have decreased slightly, owing to the consolidation of 
different powder manufacturing companies. 

The wholesale fireworks have increased slightly, while the retail fireworks have 
decreased. - 

The receipts from chimney fires are 203, a decrease of four. 

Under the regulations, the manufacturers of matches pay $50 for their first license. 
Last year there were 19 of them, while this year there are but 5, at $50 each, while the 
reissue will number 13, at $10. 



121 



The wholesaling matches remain about the same. 

Permits were issued for blasting operations of the first class, ii ; of the second 
class, 51, and of the third class, 126. 

The constant use of explosives in the various building operations makes it neces- 
sary that our men visit these various operations at least twice a week, and in that 
way take them away from the special surveys made necessary for the drugs, etc. In 
view of that fact I would respectfully recomend that at magazines of the first class 
and operations conducted under these permits, a man should be appointed in the same 
manner as a Corporation Inspector is appointed by other Departments, for the reason 
that the quantity of powder consumed every day is very large, and that the consequent 
carelessness has increased, owing to the familiarity of those in charge of the operations, 
while an inspector appointed by the Fire Commissioner, and paid by the contractor, can 
be in constant attendance, and the risks would be reduced to a minimum in that way. 

We, from our books, estimate the receipts from this office to be for the year 1904, 
$46,648.50, which is an increase of $310 over that of 1903. 

The complaints of citizens and members of the uniformed force, complaining of 
uncleanly or untidy conditions of cellars, stores or business places have decreased for the 
year 1904, and show 775 complaints, against 980 for 1903, showing that the work of 
the Bureau has been successful in removing some of the causes of fire. 

The rubbish which has heretofore lumbered the cellars of the theatres has been 
removed, and the people sitting in the auditorium need not be afraid of being burned 
up from shavings, either under themselves or under the stage, in that way giving them 
far more security than they have had heretofore. 

The testing of kerosene oils by our Bureau has somewhat decreased, owing to the 
fact that the grade of oil sold in the City has improved for the better, while the Bureau 
is at all times on the watch for the oils used by the Department for lubricating pur- 
poses, which takes up very largely the leisure time of the oil tester. 

The number of Inspectors in the Bureau is entirely inadequate for the territory 
which they are compelled to cover. The outskirts of our Gity are continually being built 
up, and as bouses are occupied for business purposes, the increased work placed on the 
men becomes almost impossible for them to perform within a reasonable time, and for 
that reason I would respectfully recommend that a man be given to us for each 
battalion in the City and The Bronx, Staten Island being attended to by one man. 

The law governing the chimney fires is about three or four hundred years old' 
and applies to the occupant of the apartment, while we know that no owner of a 
property would allow the occupant to go on the roof to clean the chimney attached to 
his apartment, and yet he is held responsible for the carelessness of the owner. It 
works a great hardship on very many poor tenants, and I would respectfully recommend 
that section 760 be changed and that the owner would be held responsible. 



122 



The reinspection and critical examination of garages in the City, owing to an 
expensive and what threatened to be a disastrous fire in West Thirty-ninth street, is 
progressing slowly, there being one man detailed on it at all times. He finds condi- 
tions are very bad, and very few garages are in proper condition to conduct their 
business. Those conditions are being changed as rapidly as possible, and we hope in 
the near future to have all model garages in the City. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEO. E. MURRAY, Inspector of Combustibles. 



Fire Department City of New York, l 
Office of Hospital and Training Stables, I 
Nos. 133 and 135 West Ninety-ninth Street, f 
Borough of Manhattan, January 6, 1905. J 

Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES, Fire Commissioner: 

Sir "― I have the honor to submit the following report of horses for the year 1904: 

Number on hand December 31, 1903 597

Sold 46

On hand December 31, 1904 629 



Of those we lost by death 14 were the result of accidents while answering alarms 
of fire. 

The number required to equip the Department at present is 616. The surplus 
number (13) and those we have on trial at all times take the place of such as are 
unfit for service from sickness or injury.

Fire Department, City of New York, 
Bureau of Violations and Auxiliary Fire Appliances 
Nos. 157 and 159 East Sixty-seventh Street, 

Borough of Manhattan, January 10, 1905. 




Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES, Fire Commissioner: 

Sir "~ I have the honor to transmit herewith report, with statistical information, 
etc., of the work of this Bureau for the year ending December 31, 1904: 

In view of the fact that the Bureau was created December 22, 1903, and this being 
the first annual report, I have taken the liberty of going into a little more detail than 
is customary, in reports of this nature, and only desire to set forth as briefly as possi- 
ble the duties and responsibilities of the Bureau, the work accomplished and the 
results and benefits of such work. 

The Bureau is charged with the examination of all complaints and reports of vio- 
lations, or alleged violations, of all laws and ordinances which place upon the Fire 
Department the duty of requiring the installation of auxiliary fire appliances, and the 
taking of other precautionary measures, etc., which are made mandatory by the Char- 
ter, laws or ordinances, or are discretionary with the Fire Commissioner. 

The head of the Bureau is empowered and authorized to issue notices requiring 
the removal of violations when found to exist, and consequent compliance with the 
laws and ordinances covering the installation of such auxiliary fire appliances, and 
other precautionary measures as may be ordered from time to time by the Fire Com- 
missioner. 

The existing rules and regulations require company commanders of the uniformed 
force semi-annually, on April 15 and October 15 of each year, to make inspections 
and forward reports of all buildings within their respective districts wherein auxiliary 
fire appliances are or should be installed, with necessary recommendations, and such 
reports are transmitted through the regular channels to this Bureau. 

This Bureau makes all subsequent inspections and reinspections, and serves all 
notices to correct conditions, or to provide necessary or additional appliances. 

The work done during the year in directing the installation of auxiliary fire appli- 
ances and correcting dangerous conditions, under the provisions of section 762, chap- 
ter 378, Laws of 1897, as amended by chapter 466, Laws of 1901 (Greater New York 



Charter), and sections 102 and 109 of the Building Code, is shown below: 

Semi-annual reports received from company commanders and examined. . . . 14,072 

Inspections and reinspections 2,979 

Communications and special reports 667 

Notices served • 4^9 

Violations forwarded to Corporation Counsel ISI 



126 



Tlie notices served during the year resulted in the following appliances being 
installed and conditions corrected: 

Number 
of ' 

' Build- 
ings. 



Standpipe equipment, which includes the necessary connections and hose, 
together with means to supply same, either by gravity tank or pump 
pressure locally, or by Fire Department, by means of outside connections. . 38 
Automatic sprinkler equipments and perforated pipe systems in cellars and 

sub-cellars 43 

Means of communicating alarms of fire direct to Fire Department Headquarters, 

hotels, etc 29 

Interior alarm systems, consisting of large gongs in hallways of hotels, etc., 
to warn occupants of fire, and minimize delay in use of available means of 

escape 65 

Proper signs in halls, indicating location of exits 26 

Time detectors to record movements of watchman 11 

Rope fire escapes 、 23 

Other conditions corrected, such as fire doors, etc •• 26 



The following portable fire appliances were also instated: 

Metal buckets 5,034 

Fire hooks 289 

Fire axes 285 

Three-gallon liquid chemical extinguishers 533 



These figures cover only . such cases where appliances were installed by order of 
Fire Commissioner, and under supervision of this Bureau during the year, and do not 
include installations in former years, or in new buildings. 

The work done in the various theatre buildings during the year, under the direction 
of the Mayor's Theatre Committee, on which I, by your direction, acted as representative 
of the Fire Department, covered such requirements as were found, on personal inspec- 
tion, to be necessary, and resulted in the construction of new and adequate exits, the 
arrangement of exit doors to guarantee sure use of them, the installation of improved 
and additional auxiliry fire appliances, consisting of standpipes (fire lines) and auto- 
matic sprinkler systems, etc., the r changing of asbestos curtains and placing of 
mechanism for quick operation of same, the construction of division walls and the 
fitting of fire doors to divide stage from dressing rooms, as well as front of house, the 
overhauling of rigging operating skylights over stage, and the attachment of quick- 
opening devices in connection therewith, the removal of dangerous conditions from 
the various buildings, such as use of gas on stage and other parts of house, the repair- 



127 



ing of defective, and the removal of dangerops electric lighting equipment, the 
improvement and correction of defects in heating apparatus, the use of certain parts of 
structure for storage of scenery and stage properties, etc. 

The orders issued, except in some few instances, were obeyed without question, 
in which cases the theatres were closed by the Board of Health, by direction of his 
Honor, the Mayor, on report of the Committee. Those closed were subsequently 
reopened on completion of the necessary changes and additions. 

As a result of the improved condition of the various theatres, due to compliance 
with the orders of the Committee, a general reduction in the fire insurance rates was 
allowed, to the extent of 2$ per cent, in some of the buildings, and in others as much 
as 35 per cent. 

The conditions at the present time show that all buildings of a public nature, such 
as hotels, hospitals, asylums, churches, schools, theatres, etc., are or will be in the near 
future, provided with adequate means for extinguishing small fires or holding fires in 
check until arrival of Fire Department, the very high buildings having protection on 
the upper as well as the lower floors, and the danger of fighting sub-cellar fires is to 
some extent reduced. 

A decidedly dangerous condition was found to prevail in the almost absolute neglect 
of the auxiliary fire appliance equipment in a great many buildings, and desire to say 
at this time that the Bureau has done a great deal of good work in showing the general 
public that fire appliances do require care and attention. 

The semi-annual inspections made by the company commanders during the year 
furnishes them with valuable information as to entrances, stairways, elevators, elevator 
and other shafts, etc., and they in turn, in making their inspections of thd fire appli- 
ances, give necessary instruction as to proper care of same, and make only necessary 
recommendations for additional equipment to cover danger points. 

I might call attention at this time to the fact, without making any claim for the 
increased efficiency of auxiliary fire appliance equipment, that the records for the first 
nine months of 1904 show an increase in total number of fires of 523 over the same 
period in 1903, but the average loss per fire shows a decrease of $35.37. 

The recent issuance of regulations governing the standpipe (fire line) and perfor- 
ated pipe work contemplates a supervision over work of this nature which will 
guarantee proper mechanical arrangement of such equipment, with assurance of 
efficient service in event of fire. 

The question of proper auxiliary fire protection for the various public institutions, 
particularly those in partially isolated localities, such as on the islands of East river 
and Long Island Sound, and in the outlying sections of the Borough of The Bronx, is 
a very important one, and while some work has been done to improve the conditions, 
the preliminary inspections indicate that a great deal of work can and will be done to 
improve and bring the existing auxiliary equipments up to date. 



128 



Harmonious relations have been, established between this Department and the New 
York Fire Insurance Exchange, looking toward the betterment of general conditions, 
and the improvement of auxiliary fire appliances, with very excellent results, and great 
promise of continued good work during the coming year. 

The force of this Bureau at this time consists of: 

Chief of Battalion in charge i 

First grade Firemen 5 

Stenographer (un uniformed) I 

Total 7 



The volume of business handled by this Bureau, which will increase each succeeding 
year, makes the necessity for additional help and more office space evident. 

The Bureau at this time occupies only about 150 square feet of floor space, in 
which is located one roll-top desk, one typewriter desk, one bookkeeper desk in which 
are kept plans, record books, etc., and three file cases containing records of over 7,000 
buildings in the boroughs of Manhattan and The Bronx, also one wardrobe, leaving 
barely room to turn around. 

I am of the opinion that the work of the coming year can be handled properly 
with a force consisting of: 

Chief of Battalion in charge i 

Foreman, as assistant i 

First grad^ Firemen 5 

Stenographer (ununi formed) I 

Clerk (ununiformed) I 



Total 



9 



I would recommend that proper legislation be secured to provide adequate punish- 
ment for wilful neglect, or malicious interference, which impairs the efficiency or 
destroys the usefulness of the auxiliary fire appliances installed in any building within 
the jurisdiction of the Fire Department. 

Respect fuly submitted, 

WILLIAM T. BEGGIN, 

Chief of Battalion in Charge of Bureau of Violations 
and Auxiliary Fire Appliances.

Nos. 157 and 159 East Sixty-seventh Street, ' 
Borough of Manhattan, November 30, 1904. , 

Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES, Fire Commissioner : 

Sir -~ I would respectfully submit, supplemental to my report of even date, same 
being in compliance with instructions received in letter dated November 21, 1904, that 
I have also acted, by your direction, as a member of the Mayor's Theatre Committee, 
and desire to state that this committee, which cbnsisted of Dr. Walter Bensd, Assist- 
ant Sanitary Superintendent, Department of Health ; Mr. Rudolph Miller, Chief Engi- 
neer, Bureau of Buildings, Borough of Manhattan, and myself made personal inspec- 
tion of all theatres in Borough of Manhattan, and subsequently issued orders to the 
proprietors and managers of same to make such changes in buildings and additions to 
equipment as were considered necessary to more safely guard the lives of the general 
public during performances in case of fire or panic. 

These orders required improvements such as proper and adequate exits, improved 
and additional fire extinguishing appliances, proper asbestos curtains and division walls 
between stage and auditorium, and proper ventilation over stage in event of fire; and 
the removal of dangerous conditions, such as: Accumulated stage scenery and proper- 
ties, use of gas on stage and other parts of theatre, defective and dangerous electric 
lighting, and heating apparatus, etc., etc. These orders were obeyed without question, 
except in some few instances, in which cases the theatres were closed by order of the 
Board of Health at request of his Honor, the Mayor. Those closed were reopened 
subsequently on completion of the necessary changes and additions. 

The improved conditions in the various theatres has resulted in a general reduction 
in fire insurance rates on such buildings wherein the orders of the Theatre Committee 
have been complied with, to the extent of 25 per cent, in some of the buildings, and in 
others as much as 35 per cent 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM T. BEGGIN, Chief of Battalion.

Nos. 157 and 159 East Sixty-seventh Street, * 
Borough of Manhattan, April 6, 1905. , 

Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES. Fire Commissioner : 

Sir ~ I have the honor to forward herewith copy in duplicate of the report of this 
Bureau for the year 1904. 

In that year there were 7,549 fires in the Boroughs of Manhattan, The Bronx and 
Richmond, entailing a total loss to buildings and contents of $4,530,943, an average 
loss of $600.20. This average loss is the lowest on record in the history of the Depart- 
ment. It is also worthy of note that there was an increase of 762 fires over that for the 
year 1903, and an increase of 1,710 fires over that for the year 1902. 

Following are comparative figures for these years : 



Number Average 
Year. of Fires. Total Loss. Loss. 



1904 7.549 $4,530,943 00 $600 20 

1903 6,787 4,246^60 00 625 64 

1902 5,839 4*510,982 00 772 56 



It is also found that for the year 1904: 

3,066 fires were for losses less than $10. 

1,871 fires were for losses between $10 and $50. 

715 fires were for losses between $50 and $100. 

1,421 fires were for losses between $100 and $1,000. 

341 fires were for losses between $1,000 and $5,000. 

61 fires were for losses between $5,000 and $10,000. 

Statistics as to the causes of these fires show that among the principal causes were :

during the year was 1,266. That for the year 1903 was 692. A comparison of figures 
shows an increase of 574 complaints over that of year 1903. 



Causes of complaints were as follows : 

Dangerous conditions in wooden dumb-waiter shafts 490

The record of cases of arson for year 1904 shows that 34 persons were arrested for 
arson or suspected incendiarism. There were also 8 cases pending from year 1903, 
making a total of 42 cases disposed of during the year. 

A table is here appended showing disposition of the cases by the courts, also a

132 



In the investigation of fires of a suspicious nature or of large fires resulting in heavy 
losses, over 1,200 witnesses were in the course of the year subpoenaed to headquarters,, 
examined by me, and their testimony taken down in shorthand ; and in all cases where 
the evidence given tended to show a criminal responsibility, copies of the testimony 
were transcribed in typewriting and forwarded to the District Attome/s Office for 
further legal action. In cases of large fire losses typewritten copies were made and kept 
on file in this office. 

In conclusion, I beg to remark that the report for the year 1904 is in every respect, 
aAd without doubt, the best report ever issued from this bureau ; especially so as 
regards the efficiency of the Department in reducing fire losses. 

Respecting the proper investigation of fires, I desire again to call your attention to 
the fact that we are seriously hampered by not having sufficient help. On account of 
the recent abnormal increases in the annual number of fires it is impossible in many 
cases to give the time and attention that some fires of apparent incendiary origin deserve. 
While fires in two years have increased to over 1,700 in number, no addition whatsoever 
has been made to the working force of this bureau. On the contrary, we have only 
recently lost two policemen detailed to us ; so that at present we are working with less 
men than heretofore. As the work is naturally accumulating, it will be impossible to 
give that attention usually required in the investigation of some fires unless additional 
assistance soon be given us. 

There is also a particular need for a competent interpreter ; quite a number of the 
witnesses examined being of foreign birth, natives of Russia, Italy, Poland, etc., who in 
most cases are unable to understand what is asked of them unles through an interpreter, 
、 so that we must often rely upon chance interpreters or those whom witnesses may bring 
along with them. 

Asking, therefore, that these recommendations meet with your immediate consider- 
ation, and as being made wholly for the best interests of the Department, I remain, 

Respectfully jours, 

PETER SEEftY, Fire Marshal.

BOROUGHS OF BROOKLYN AND QUEENS. 
OFFICE OF DEPUTY CHIEF OF DEPARTMENT IN CHARGE. 

Brooklyn, January ii, 1905. 

Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES, Fire Commissioner: 

Sir ~ I have the honor to submit for your information and consideration the fol- 
lowing annual report for the year ending December 31, 1904, embracing schedules 
showing the membership of the uniformed force, number of companies, description of 
apparatus and fire-boats, statistics of fires, fire alarm telegraph system, a brief sketch 
of notable fires, rescues performed and presentation of medals ; also register of officers 
in these boroughs. 

I again respectfully call your attention to the fact that the Department in the 
boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens is not increasing proportionately with the growth 
of those boroughs. The vast increase in the number of buildings (6,000 in the borough 
of Brooklyn and 226 in Long Island City, in the borough of Queens) during 1904, 
demands additional protection. The number of fires has increased ioj4 per cent, over 
the preceding year. Since 1898, up to the present time, a period of six years, but three 
engines and three hook and ladder companies have been organized, an average of one 
a year. The buildings in course of construction for Engine Company 131 and Hook 
and Ladder Company 70 (a new company) will be ready for occupancy March i, 1905. 

On February 11, 1904, I recommended localities in which sites should be purchased 
and suitable buildings erected for six engine companies, three hook and ladder com- 
panies and three combination companies, equipped with engine and hook and ladder 
trucks. All of the afore-mentioned were absolutely essential at that time, and, if so, 
how much more so to-day. Notwithstanding the fact that during the past year ex- 
tensive alterations and repairs were made to a number of company quarters, there are 
still thirty-one of the same in dire need of additional accommodations and renovation ; 
and though all this will necessitate a large expenditure of money, nevertheless it is 
absolutely necessary, to make these houses sanitary and fit for habitation. In their 
present state they are anything but that. Moreover, these conditions are wont to endanger 
the health of both officers and men, and to engender laxity as regards the very im- 
portant matter of discipline. 

An additional modem fire-boat should be acquired to protect the large shipping 
interests along the water-front, and to be located at or about the foot of Main street, 
to replace one now being loaned to this borough by Manhattan. The present fire-boats, 
" David A. Boody " and " Seth Low," which have been in service for ten and fifteen 
years, respectively, need overhauling frequently, necessitating their being placed out 
of commission, thus imperiling the interests referred to above. Since my last report, 
the fire-boat service has been improved by the interchange of assignment between the 
boroughs. 

During the past year much has been done to supply the deficiency which existed 
as respects the number of fire-hydrants (710 having been placed in the borough of 



202 



Brooklyn and 69 in Long Island City, borough of Queens) and diminished head of 
water, affording much needed facilities for the extinguishment of fires. 

As to the fire alarm teregraph branch of the service in these boroughs, I can only 
reiterate the recommendations made in my annual report for the year 1903, as follows : 

First 一 By placing in subways all wires now on poles, thus elminating the troubles 
resulting from wires exposed to the elements. ' 

Second ~~ The establishment of a sub-station in the vicinity of Coney Island avenue 
and Avenue K, with a view of controlling Class 2 boxes, will, in my judgment, result 
in material and lasting advantage to the Department, because a centrally located station 
will eliminate a very considerable mileage of wire, with its troubles and cost of main- 
tenance, and insure a direct and rapid service not now attainable. 

Third 一 1 am convinced of the desirability of the addition of at least 65 boxes, 
Class 2, to be located at important points in the territory now included within the 
Thirty-first, Thirty-second and Thirty-third Battalion districts in the borough of 
Brooklyn, and 25 boxes, Class 4, in the territory now included within the Thirty-fifth 
and Thirty-sixth Battalion districts, borough of Queens. The addition of boxes, as 
above outlined, would afford the residents of these districts much needed facilities for 
communication in the event of fire, whereas, they now rely, to a large extent, upon 
the telephone, with its attending delays, particularly after hours, during which, stores 
are not open for business. When such boxes shall have been placed (this applies to 
all future box additions), I would respectfully recommend that the adjacent lamp-post 
be fitted with red glass, calling attention to the nearby presence of the fire-alarm box. 

Fourth 一 The method in vogue, up to the present, of locating fire-boxes in these 
boroughs is, in my opinion, particularly objectionable; and it is to be hoped that the 
time is not far distant when a system will be introduced whereby the members of the 
Department may know the approximate location of a box when the signal is received 
in an engine house, even though the alarm be, in a measure, defective. To illustrate 
the present lack of system, I need but call attention to the location of box 521, at Water 
and Fulton streets ; while box 522 is located at Bush wick and Flushing avenues. Again, 
box 774 is found at Manhattan avenue and Scholes street, while box 775 is at Third ave- 
nue and Degraw street. These are but two of numerous cases, and it will be readily 
understood that the slighcst error on the part of the Operator in transmitting the alarm 
will result in delays that can mean but one thing in case of fire, i. e., the destruction 
of property. That the boxes should be placed in numerical order seems to be quite 
beyond dispute. For. illustration : Assuming box 12 at Fifty-ninth street and New York 
Bay, from which point the series will be continued through Fifty-ninth street and 
Fifty-seventh or Fifty-sixth streets to Seventh avenue, thence returning to the bay, to 
begin the new scries. 

Respectfully, 

• THOS. LALLY, 

Deputy Chief of Department in Charge, 
Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens.

high wind which was blowing and which suddenly shifted around, causing the mem- 
bers of two companies to be driven from their lines by the intense heat, and making 



2l8 



it extremely difficult and dangerous to remove Engine 141 from her position on dock, 
which was finally accomplished. Patrolman Patrick Gushing, of the Forty-third 
Police Precinct, when he discovered the fire, ran down Pier 7 to awaken the persons 
on the vessels moored to the pier, but was cut off from escape by the flames and was 
burned to death. His body was recovered later in the ruins of the pier. One of the

building and contents slight. Fire extended to adjoining buildings by reason of the 
open cocklofts, the fire having extended from cellar of No. 186 up through hallway to 
roof before the arrival of Department, owing, in all probability, to delay in sending 
out the alarm. The bodies of twelve people who had been suffocated were found on 
the top floor of No. 186. Two persons who had been severely burned were removed 
to hospital. The above casualties occurred previous to the arrival of the Department, 
as Acting Chief Woods arrived at fire within three minutes after alarm was received, 
and all the occupants who were able to get out of building had already made their 
exit, and the persons who were suffocated were, in all probability, beyond human aid 
before his arrival. The chief officers present were Chief of Department Crokcr, 
Deputy Chief of Department acting in charge Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens 
Duffy, Deputy Chief of Department Gooderson, Chiefs of Battalion O'Hara and 
Graham, and Acting Chiefs of Battalion Woods and Friel. The services of 9 engines

Rescues Attended With Personal Risk, in the Line of Duty. 

January 1, 1904. At 1.33 a. m., Station 39, at fire at No. 153 Adams street. On 
the arrival of Engine Company 106, it was reported that a person was left on the 
third floor. Fireman second grade John W. Larkin of that company made his way to 
the third floor and there found an old man, 62 years of age, unconscious. He carried 
him down the stairs to the street. At the time, the fire had spread throughout the third 
and fourth floors of the building, and the person rescued was burned about the body 
to such an extent that his death resulted the following day. Fireman Larkin had his 
hand slightly burned and also his rubber coat. This rescue was attended with great 
personal risk. 

March 29, 1904. Station 126, at 9.18 a. m. Fire at No. 81 Columbia street. On the 
arrival of the companies at the fire the occupants were calling for help from the windows. 
The building was heavily charged with smoke, and exit by stairway had been cut off 
by the fire and intense heat. Acting Chief of Battalion Rikel ordered Fireman first 



220 



grade Patrick J. Tyrell, Fireman first grade John J. Quigley and Fireman third grade 
William F. Stanton, of Engine Company 103, to rescue the occupants. They made aa 
effort to enter the building by stairway, but were driven back by the smoke and heaL 
Then Firemen Tyrell and Quigley ascended to the third story window by scaling lad- 
ders. Fireman Tyrell entered the building and passed out five children to Fireman 
Quigley and they were then passed to other firemen who were on the ladder and car- 
ried safely to the street. Fireman William F. Stanton was notified that a blind womaa 
was still in the building. He attempted to reach the third floor by stairway, and found 
a woman, aged about 50 years, lying on the stairs between the second and third floors, and 
carried her down stairway to the street. The above rescues .were effected with con- 
siderable personal risk on the part of the firemen mentioned, and but for their prompt 
action the persons rescued would have been suffocated from the dense smoke. 

October 17, 1904. Station 475, at 1.25 a. m. Fire at No. 15 Moore street, five- 
story tenement, occupied by four families on each floor. On the arrival of the com- 
panies, the fire escapes and windows of building were crowded with men, women and 
children. The fire had extended from the cellar to the roof, through the dumbwaiter 
well, and was coming out of the windows on the fourth and fifth floors, and the build- 
ing was heavily charged with smoke and heat. Hook and Ladder Company 58, under 
the direction of Foreman John Clunie, on their arrival immediately raised ladders to 
the windows and fire escapes, and carried and assisted the occupants from their 
perilous positions to the street in safety with the utmost rapidity. Foreman John 
Clunie climbed from the top of a 30-foot ladder to the fourth and fifth floors by means 
of a scaling ladder, breaking the window with his fire hat to make an entrance, the glass 
cutting his hands and face, and found an unconscious woman on the floor. He carried 
her on his shoulders down the fire escape to the ladders and then to the street. The 
manner in which this rescue was effected was attended with great personal risk, and 
is highly commendable.

Rescues of Endangered Persons, in the Line of Duty. 

December 18, 1903. Station 294, at 7.10 p. m. Fire at No. 18 Hopkins street. Oo 
the arrival of Engine Company 130 it was reported that there were persons in the 
building. Fireman first grade John Malliband entered the hallway on the first floor, 
which was heavily charged with smoke, and found an old lady, eighty-one years of 
age, lying on the floor, overcome, and considerably burned about the lower part of the 
body. He carried her to the street in safety. The prompt action on the part of the 
above Fireman in all probability saved the life of the person rescued. 

January 9, 1904. Station 614, at 6.07 a. m. Fire at No. 397 Rockaway avenue 
On the arrival of Engine Company 131 it was impossible to make an entrance to the 
building, and the inmates had gone to the rear windows to avoid the heat and smoke, 
Foreman McKenna ordered Fireman first grade Samuel E. Harper, Fireman first grade 



221 



Lawrence Martin and Fireman third grade Edward H. Weiler and Fireman third 
grade John F. Dunn to the rear of building., to rescue the persons on the upper floors. 
Fireman Weiler was raised on the shoulders of the other Firemen and reached the 
roof of a two-story extension (as this was the only manner in which they could ascend, 
as this company was not equipped with scaling ladders), and he assisted the occupants, 
numbering twenty, by passing them down to Firemen Harper, Martin and Dunn. The 
roof of the extension was covered with ice at the time, which, together with the dense 
smoke from the fire, made the rescue very difficult, and a few minutes' delay on the 
part of the Firemen would have been disastrous to the occupants, as the fire was 
spreading very rapidly throughout the building. 

March 29, 1904. Station 128, at 9.18 p. m. Fire at No. 81 Columbia street. Fire- 
■aan first grade John Morrissey and Fireman third grade James P. Shannon, of En- 
gine Company 103, assisted other Firemen in the rescue of five children from the third 
floor by way of scaling ladder, and their acts are considered commendable, for the 
rescue of endangered persons. 

May 4, 1904. Station 353, at 6.14 a. m. Fire at No. 258A Thirteenth street. Fire- 
man fourth grade John A. Smith, of Engine Company 120, made an extraordinary 
effort to get to the top floor by stairway, to rescue persons on said floor. The fire 
had extended from the basement floor to the first floor stairway, and said Fireman 
threw a coat over his head and ran up the stairway through the flames and heat, and 
on arriving at the top floor found that the persons had been rescued by other Firemen 
from the rear windows. He was overcome from his efforts, and had to be rescued 
from the building by other Firemen, by being passed from the window to a window of 
the adjoining house, the same manner in which . the occupants had been formerly 
rescued. This act on the part of Fireman Smith is especially commendable, for his 
brave but unsuccessful efforts to rescue the occupants. 

September 28, 1904. Station 689, at 3.38 a. m. Fire at No. 53 Kent avenue. The 
fcuilding was found heavily charged with smoke, the fire having originated in the 
cellar, and the tenants in the top floor, in their rooms, were panic-stricken, and calling 
for help. Fireman fourth grade Thomas J. Maloney, Hook and Ladder Company 56, 
went to the top floor by stairway, with some difficulty, and found a woman and a 
child partly overcome in the bedroom. He assisted the woman down to the fire- 
escape and carried (he child to the roof by way of fire-escape, to Fireman fourth grade 
George Farrell, of the same company, who had gone to the roof through the adjoining 
tailding, and returned down the fire-escape, and. assisted by another Fireman, carried 
the woman to the roof on fire-escape. Fireman Farrell then went down fire-escape to 
third floor and found a woman and a small child. He passed the child to another 
Fireman and assisted the 、- vonian down the fire-escape. The prompt action on the 
part of said Firemen is worthy of honorable mention, for the rescuing of endangered 
persons. 



222 



October 17, 1904, Station 475, at 1.25 a. m. Fire at No. 15 Moore street. Fire 
extended from cellar to roof through dumbwaiter shaft, and also out of the fourth and 
fifth-story windows. The building is a five-story tenement, occupied by four families 00 
each floor. On the arrival of Hook and Ladder Company 58, exist by stairway had 
been cut off, and the occupants were on the fire-escapes and in windows, panic-stricken- 
All available ladders on the apparatus were immediately raised to the various windows 
and fire-escapes, and the members of Hook and Ladder Company 58, under the direction 
of Foreman Climie, started to rescue the endangered persons by ladder and fire-escape, 
a great number of whom were in a helpless condition, some being unconscious from 
the smoke. About fifty persons in all were rescued from the building. Some were 
removed to hospitals and others to neighboring tenements. Later the bodies of four 
persons who had been suffocated were found on the upper floors, and two of the 
number rescued died later in the hospital. The members taking part in the above 
rescues were as follows : :"o reman Clunic, Assistant Foreman George F. McGeary, 
Firemen first grade Henry Weigel, George A. Kellock, Frederick Hill and Michael 
Maloney, Firemen third grade Robert R. White and Firemen fourth grade Walter C 
Scott, Frank J. Moore, James P. Hayes and Alfred W. Collins. The excellent work 
performed by the above-named Firemen is deserving of great commendation, and were 
it not for their prompt action in effecting the rescues, many of those rescued would 
tmdoubtedly have been overcome by the heat and smoke, as the fire spread rapidly 
throughout the building. 

October 26, 1904. Station 527, at 12.30 a. m. Fire at No. 26 Melrose street, four- 
story frame tenement, occupied by eight families. On the arrival of the Department 
the fire, which had originated in the cellar, was extending up the cellar stairs to the 
hallway and the building was heavily charged with smoke. Acting Chief of Battalion • 
McGuire was informed that all had vacated the building except one woman on the 
second floor, and that two citizens had tried to rescue her, but had failed. He called 
Fireman second grade Richard R. Siegert of Engine Company 118, detailed as Driver 
to Chief of Twenty-seventh Battalion, to go to the second floor by stairway and rescue 
the woman. He found her in the middle bed-room, partially unconscious from the 
effects of the smoke. The Fireman placed a bed quilt over the woman's head and 
carried her down the stairs to the street. Fireman Siegert was partially overcome 
by the smoke and heat and it was some time before he recovered from their effects. 
At the time the members of Engine Company 118 were working in short relays on. the 
line in hallway and at the cellar stairs. Were it not for the timely rescue effected by 
Fireman Siegert the person rescued would undoubtedly have been suffocated from the 
smoke. 

November 6, 1904. Station 73, at 9 p. m. Fire at No. 325 Jay street, four-story 
frame building. Fire orig^inated in hall bed-room on second floor and spread rapidly 
through stairs leading to third floor, cutting off exit via stairs. On the arrival of 
Hook and Ladder Company 68 a woman was seen leaning far out of the third-story 



223 



window, in a frenzied ■ condition, crying for help. Foreman Travers immediately 
ordered scaling ladders raised. Fireman second grade Warren H. Schneider ascended 
the ladder and rescued the woman. The quick rescue saved the woman from injury, 
for the fact is that she was about to jump from the window when rescued. 

November 22, 1904. Station 647, at 1.30 a. m. Fire at No. 782 Fulton street, 
four-story brick building. On the arrival of Engine Company 110 the halls were filled 
with smoke to such an extent as to make it impossible for the tenants to make their 
exit in that manner. Fireman first grade Michael P. Lynch ascended to third floor by 
scaling ladder, entered the rooms and found a colored woman, and passed her to other 
Firemen on the scaling ladder, who assisted her to the street. He then assisted a 
colored man out of the same window and passed him to other Firemen on the ladder 
and he was assisted to the street. The room at the time the rescues were made was 
heavily charged . with smoke, and said Fireman remained there for a considerable 
length of time while the persons were being passed down the ladder until he was able 
to descend in the same manner. 



ROLL OF MERIT, CLASS D. 

Rescues of Endangered Persons, Outside the Line of Duty. 

January 27, 1904. At 1.08 p. m., Fireman first grade William R Dolan, Engine 
Company 102, detailed as Lineman to the Fire Alarm Telegraph Branch, while wait- 
ing for a train on the elevated station at Court square and Fulton street, had his 
attention attracted by a loud explosion and flashes on the street. He immediately 
descended the stairs to investigate, and found trolley wire dangling in the street at 
Adams and Willoughby streets, with a horse and truck in the midst of it, and endan- 
gering the lives of persons on that throughfare. He jumped on the truck, took his 
pliers and cut the wires half way and alighted from the truck, touching the wires on 
the rail and burned tHe other half through, and placed the wire so that it could do 
no further injury. This act on the part of the above named Fireman was attended 
with some personal risk, as he handled the live wire without properly insulated tools, 
and there is no doubt but that his quick action and good judgment saved probable 
injuries to persons on the street at the time, as there were a great number of people 
at this point at the time. 

October 9, 1904. At 10.15 a. m., Fireman first grade Vincent A. Coffill and Fire- 
man second grade Wardell Van L()an, of Engine Company loi, were detailed to assist 
in the rescue of John Cullen, aged 64, a workman employed by the Kings County Gas 
Company at the foot of Fifty-fifth street, Brooklyn. Mr. CuUen, while trimming 
coal at the top of coal pockets, accidentally fell to the bottom of the chute by the coal 
slipping. He was buried under tons of coal, and the above named Fireman on their 
arrival got down into the bottom of the chute, and, assisted by the police officers, 



224 



after five hours of hard and constant labor, succeeded in rescuing Mr. Cullen, prac- 
tically unhurt, except that he was suffering from shock and weakness. The Firemen 
were in a position of great danger, as the coal was constantly sliding down upon 
them. After succeeding in uncovering the head of Mr. Cullen, it was necessary for 
Fireman Coffill to work his way under the platform, which was gradually sliding, and 
attach a rope around the man's body, and remove the coal from around the man with 
his hands, while the men on the outside pulled steadily on the rope. The man was 
drawn to a place of safety, and after recovering from the effects of the shock he wjyi 
removed to his home. The work performed by the above named Firemen was exceed- 
ingly dangerous, and highly commendable, for their efforts to rescue the endangered 
persoa 

October 28, 1904. At 11.46 a. m., while Assistant Foreman John J. Cashman 
of Engine Company 128 was engaged in taking up hose, preparatory to leaving fire 
on Pier 7, foot of Forty-first street, Brooklyn, he saw a boy, 11 years of age, fall 
overboard from the bulkhead, who was unable to help himself. Assistant Foreman 
Cashman immediately jumped in after him, without waiting to remove his heavy 
clothing or rubber boots, and rescued the boy in an exhausted condition. He removed 
the boy in Battalion Chiefs wagon to Norwegian Hospital, and after Assistant Fore- 
man Cashman changed his clothes he reported back to the fire for work. The boy 
would undoubtedly have drowned were it not for the promptness of Assistant Fore- 
man Cashman, who effected the rescue with considerable difficulty and personal risk, 
swimming with the boy struggling in his arms and being encumbered with heavy 
clothes at the time. - 

Presentation of Medals. 

The Committee in charge of the Brooklyn Fire Department Medal Fund informed 
the Deputy Fire Commissioner that the accumulated interest from said fund would 
allow for the purchase of two medals for the year 1903. The Deputy Fire Commis- 
sioner and the Deputy Chief in charge instituted a searching investigation as to the 
merits of the rescues performed, and the degree of risk involved by the firemen, and 
selected Assistant Foreman James F. Friel, of Engine Company 105, and Fireman first 
grade Michael Dorey, of Engine Company 128, to be the recipients of the medals, and 
their names' were recommended to and approved by the Fire Commissioner. The 
medals were presented by his Honor George B. McCIellan, Mayor of The City of New 
York, at the reviewing stand, immediately after the parade of the Department on May 
14, 1904. The details of their meritorious acts are as follows : 

April 4j 1903. Fire at No. 1155 Third avenue, station 150, at 12.35 p. m. The fire 
originated on thd fourth floor and was spreading rapidly when Fireman first grade 
Michael Dorey of Engine Company 128 made his way to the floor by stairway and 
entered the rooms, which were heavily charged with heat and smoke at the time, and 



225 

discovered Frederick Coots, age 8 years, unconscious on the floor in the back room, 
where the fire had originated. He dragged him to the hallway, crawling on his hands 
and knees to the stairs, and then carried him down the stairs to the street. The boy 
was removed to the Norwegian Hospital in an ambulance. This daring feat on the part 
of Fireman Dorey was attended with extraordinary personal risk, and saved the life 
of the boy, who would undoubtedly have been suffocated or burned to death were it 
not for the timely rescue. 

May 26, 1903. Station 74, at 1.35 a. m. Fire at No. 306 Washington street. On 
the arrival of the Department, the fire was under full headway in the building, and the 
occupants were hanging out of the windows calling for help, as the exits to the street 
had been cut off by the fire and smoke. Assistant Foreman James F. Friel of Engine 
Company 105 secured scaling ladders and raised same to the second and third floors 
and entered the third floor and found Mrs. Meta Schmidt, aged 55 years, and passed 
her out to other firemen on the ladders ; and returning found Meta Schmidt, age 11 
years, and carried her down the ladder to coping on second floor and passed her to 
other Firemen. He then raised the scaling ladder to fourth floor and found Edward 
Murray, age 22 years, and Walter Daly, age 18 years, partly overcome by smoke. He 
assisted both down the scaling ladders to the third floor and passed them to other 
firemen. He again ascended to the fourth floor and found Rose Murray, age 2 years, 
and carried her <Jown and passed her to the same men. Many other occupants of the 
building were rescued by other firemen by way of ladders, and all were brought safely 
to the street, but the work performed by Assistant Foreman Friel was exceptionally 
commendable for the number of persons rescued and. the manner in which the rescues 
were performed, which were attended with personal risk, as a misstep on his part would 
have resulted in serious injury to himself and the persons rescued. At this time the 
fire was extending through the building, and the heat was intense and the smoke 
suffocating.

Fire Department, City of New York, 

Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, 
Office of Deputy Commissioner, Nos. 365 and 367 Jay Street, 

Brooklyn, December 3, 1904. 

Hon. NICHOLAS J. HAYES, Fire Commissioner. 

Sir 一 I am directed by the Deputy Commissioner, in answer to your communica- 
tion of November 30, to forward herewith condensed reports received from the heads 
of the various Bureaus of this department, Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. 

Respectfully, 

GEORGE F. DOB SON, JR., 
Secretary to Fire Commissioner, Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. 

Office of Deputy Chief of Department in Charge. 

During the past eleven months one hundred and twenty-five Firemen were ap- 
pointed; two Engineers of Steamer and three first grade Firemen were promoted to 
Assistant Foremen ; two fourth grade Firemen and one third grade Fireman re- 
signed ; one Engineer of Steamer, six first grade Firemen and one probationary Fire- 
man were dismissed ; two Foremen, one Engineer of Steamer and eight first grade 
Firemen were retired ; one Assistant Foreman and four Firemen died- from the result 
of injuries received while in the discharge of their duties, and sixteen members of 
the Department died from natural causes. 

On November 30, 1904, the fire extinguishing force numbered 1,399, an increase 
of 109 since January 1, 1904. 

The Department has been greatly benefited in the extinguishing of fires by the 
increase in mileage and diameter of water mains and the placing of a large number of 
fire hydrants. 

It is recommended that the paid system be extended to the Borough of Queens, 
where practicable, as soon as possible. 

The appropriation for the year 1905 will not permit of the appointment of any 
additional Firemen, and in order to fill existing vacancies at least fifty more men 
should be appointed during 1905, and an appropriation made therefor at the earliest 
possible date. ' 

Fire Alarm Telegraph. 

Approximately 097 miles of overhead or aerial wire was in service January i, 
1904; 1,364 repairs were made; new work, 342 items. This Bureau was subjected to 
much trouble, and its construction force kept busy, owing to the fact that all our 
circuits are aerial, with the exception of 44H miles of electrical conductors underground 
in 5,796 feet of subway. Used 5 miles of wire for extension and 38 miles for repairs. 
Two new circuits were added to the service (signal wires) . Forty-seven instruments 
were placed in company and officers' quarters. 



231 



There arc 3'44i poles, including 1,336, the joint property of the Department and the 
New York and New Jersey Telephone Company. 

On January i, 1904, 1,350 fire alarm boxes were in service on 33 circuits. This 
included 213 special building boxes. There are now in service 1,379 fire alarm boxes, 
including 229 special building boxes. 

Specifications have been submitted for placing fire circuits in nine miles of subway, 
for which funds are provided by bond issue* A bond issue of $70,000 for placing a 
manual fire alarm system in the Bqrough of Queens, Volunteer System, including the 
extension of the fire alarm system in the towns of HoUis, Queens and Springfield, was 
recommended and approved. 

At the request of the Department of Water Supply, Gas and Electricit]^; Borough 
of Brooklyn, it was recommended that an appropriation of $100,000 (by bond issue) be 
made, to place fire wires underground in certain streets. 

Repair Shops. 

One thousand five hundred and sixty-seven repairs were made to apparatus, 283 
to buildings, 491 to hose and 150 miscellaneous repairs. 

Work projected 一 One 30-horsc-powcr engine, to be installed in shop, 6 hose 
wagons and 2 engines in course of construction. • 

Apparatus of all kinds should be equipped with rubber tires and a machine pur- 
chased for repairing and putting on tires. Additional hose, engines, hook and ladder 
trucks and hose wagons should be fbrnished to increase the effectiveness of the 
Department. 

The lot adjoining the veterinary stables should be secured. A storehouse should 
be erected on lot, owned by City, on Myrtle avenue, between North Elliott place and 
North Portland avenue. 

On January i, 1904, the fire-boats " Seth Low " and " David A. Boody " were in 
very bad condition. The " Seth Low " has since been rebuilt, practically makingf her 
a new boat, and the " David A. Boody ,, has been thoroughly overhauled and put in 
first-class condition. 

Bureau of Supplies. 

The supplies for the Department have been systematically looked after. The 
storage capacity for supplies is absolutely insufficient and should be made adequate as 
%oon as possible. 

If polishing paste, polishing fluids and other small supplies could be purchased in 
open market, without advertisement, it would probably result in a saving and in the 
Department obtaining exactly what is required and adapted to its work. 



232 



Bureau of Violations and Auxiliary Fire Appliances. 

Two thousand four hundred and sixty-five buildings were inspected, of which 
1,346 were found to be properly equipped. The balance, 1,119 buildings, have been rein- 
spected, with the result that .87 owners, occupants, proprietors, etc., have complied with 
the recommendations up to date. 

Sixty-one applications for concert hall licenses were referred to this Bureau by the 
Police Department, and as a result of inspection from this office, same were returned 
approved. 

Eighty-five notices of violations of Building Code were forwarded through the 
regular channels to the Building Department ; 14 notices of violations were forwarded 
to the Tenement House Department ; 41 notices have been officially signed and served 
on occupants of buildings since November 15 and 30 notices are signed, ready for 
service. Notices in course of preparation for signature and service, 961. 

Bureau of Fire Marshal. 

Three thousand two hundred and fifty fires and 230 complaints were investigated 
during the eleven months of the year 1904. TotaJ Jire loss (estimated) $3.306,824. For 
the same period during the year 1903 there were 3,135 fires and 200 complaints, with a 
fire loss of $2,693,348, an increase of 115 fires and 30 complaints for the year 1904. 

Eighteen arrests were made in connection with the burning of buildings and ves- 
sels, which compares favorably with other years. 

This Bureau covers 198 square miles, and with the present limited office force 
it is exceedingly difficult to obtain competent legal evidence with which to convict per- 
sons guilty of the crime of arson. 

It is recommended that the Police Department be requested to give this Bureau 
more hearty co-operation than has been their custom in past years. 

Bureau of Buildings. 

The following new buildings were comixleted : Quarters for Engine Companies 
124, 131, 145, 146 and 158 and Hook and Ladder Companies 65 and 66. Extensive 
alterations and repairs have been made to the quarters of Engine Companies 104, 108, 
113, 120, 122, 126, 151 and Hook and Ladder Company 53. Numerous emergency repairs 
have been made in plumbing, mason and carpenter work, new roofs, etc. In the near 
future it will be necessary to make extensive alterations and repairs to a great many 
buildings, which are in an unsafe and unsanitary condition. 

Plans and specifications have been prepared for extensive repairs and alterations 
to the quarters of Engine Company 102 and Hook and Ladder Company 51, Engine 
Company 139 and the Veterinary Stables ; and are now being made for Engine Com- 
pany 133 and Hook and Ladder Company 58. 



233 



Hospital and Training Stables. 

On November 30, 1904, there were 543 horses in service, including both paid and 
volunteer systems. During the past eleven months 60 horses were purchased for the 
paid and 20 for the volunteer system. Six horses died from natural causes ; 7 were 
destroyed on account of injuries received, and 28, being unfit for the service, were 
sold. No epidemic occurred among the animals, although a large number were sick 
or slightly injured and were attended at the Department stables. 

It is absoluetly necessary to purchase more horses in 1905 than were purchased in 
1904- The long runs and condition of the streets compelled the placing of three horses 
to draw many of the engines and hook and ladder trucks instead of two. 

The Stables were in bad condition the first part of the year, but many improve- 
ments have been made, giving ample room and accommodations to care for sick and 
injured animals. 

Medical Board. 

There were 522 cases of illness and 203 cases of injuries during the eleven months 
ending November 30, 1904. There were 21 deaths in the Department, 16 from natural 
causes and 5 as the result of injuries received. The physical condition of the members 
of the uniformed force is excellent and the number of those on the sick list is about 
the same as usual at this season of the year. 

V 

Bureau of Combustibles. 

During the first eleven months of the year the Charter provisions regarding the 
storage and sale of explosives and combustibles and the new regulations of the 
Municipal Explosives Commission made thereunder, have been enforced so far a» 
possible with the limited number of men at the disposal of the Bureau. There have

were collected. In the other cases the fines were remitted by the Fire Commissioner 
or the cases are still pending. 

Nine arrests were made during the eleven months, and about 3,500 premises sur- 
veyed. 

Receipts in eleven months last year were $40,920.
