TRUCK CONDEMNED. t Receives a Terrible Scorch-log at an Adjourned : Council Meeting. i- y .y'yi'y-y The Ladders Shown to be Unsafe and of no •• Use at a Fire. • .. ^-v. #1; If the manufacturers of the new Hook and Ladder truck recently purchased by the City of Norwalk could have been present at the adjourned meeting of the council held last evening, they would not have felt very highly flattered at the remarks recorded in reference -to the same. The meeting Was called to order by Mayor Glover, the full board, with the exception of Councilman Cotter, being present. Chief engineer Prowitt being recognized by the Mayor was asked if. he had any remarks to make to the board. He certainly had, and made them briefly and pointedly confining such remarks to the subject of the new Pioneer Hook & Ladder truck. He said in substance, that the new truck was fast going to pieces, and that it was unfit for the use intended. He said that the patentee of the truck had been in town within a few days and had practically admitted this fact and had promised to have the matter right - ed. The chief said, further, that he would not feel justified in ordering any member of the department to mount the ladders at a fire. He had no special fault to find with the running parts of the truck, but felt called upon to adjudge the ladders as being unsafe. f He said that he had in no wise been consulted in the purchase of the apparatus-, else he would surely have con" demned it at the outset. The ladders he claimed were perishing from a"dry rot," a reel was broken, the brake failed to work, an extension hanger was in the same condition, and that it had become necessary to wire up parts of the ladder. In brief he said, "The Truck is a total failure," and was liable to fall down in the street when proceeding to a fire. He ventured the further assertion that the truck'had cost $500 more'than a good servicable truck could have bsen purchased for, and that the old truck was'preferable to the new. , Captain Smith who has charge of the Truck said, "I hats to send men up on the ladders as they are not safe. I think, he added, the manufacturers ought to be willing to give us stronger and better ladders." He also spoke of the difficulties presented in trying to raise the ladders, and clinched his remarks by saying that he was in full accord with the views of the chief. Mr. Fancher, a practical mechanic, said that the ladders were not safe, nor did he believe they could be made safe. They were .dangerous even for one par son at a time to mount. Aside from that they were too narrow and concluded by saying, "The truck is a failure and to my mind not right in any respect." Councilman Burr: "I can't see what you can do about it now. The Truck has been bought and paid for." Chief Prowitt: I know that its sale will hurt the sale of like pattern trucks in other cities. I have been in receipt of letters from other departments aik ing as to its merits, and can not do other than condemn it. Our old Ti-uc'c bought during the service as Cbijf of C. F. Loomis was superior in many respects, and during the tweaty-sevei years of its use had cost but a few dollars for repairs, and not as much as it would C03t to place the present new one in half way repairs." He thought the running part all right but the ladders a total failure., i •% \ ^ Mayor Glover: " We liave "got to have it fixed or get new ladders. "gg| Councilman Burr, who by the way is an old fireman, said, "I would rather have the old one for work." a rn- : •' fCONTINUED ON PAGE FIVE.] JURORS SUMMONED. October Term of the Criminal Suparior Court QpensP Will Open Bridqedorf, » ; ' Morning. The October term of the criminal Superior court convened in Danbury to-day, J udge W. T. Elmer presiding. There are but four cases for the court in that ci ty, and an adjournment will be taken to Bridgeport Wednesday morning, where the few remaining bound-over prisoners in the jail at Bridgeport will be disposed of. The murder trial of Henry Kierney of Danbury will be begun after the minor cases are out of the way. Kierney is the colored man who shot and; f atally wounded Arthur Beers of New Fairfield last summer. He has been, indicted for murder in the second degree. . As the Brockhaus trial will not be taken up until the Supreme court, of Errors has decided the appeal of Benjamin Willis, who is under sentence of death, there will be little other busi-for the court. y Following are the jurors summoned for Wednesday morning.

Presented to the Center School by Buckingham Post, G. A. R. G. A R •y;' yyy'-.y^ Douglas Fowler Post Celebrates Twentieth Anniversary. Its Douglas Fowler Post, G. A. R., celebrated its twentieth anniversary, last evening. Several of the State Department officers were present, including E. S. Bishop, of Norwich, and C. C. Kimmie, of Meriden. A pleasing programme, of speeches and songs yrere presented, and the affair including the luncheon was greatly enjoyed. Birthday Anniversary. : jqssie Fancher celebrated her eighth birthday anniversary at her home in East Norwalk, yesterday afternoon, by giving a party to her little friends. A season of games supplemented by refreshments helped to pass away the time in a joysome manner. A delegation from Buckingham Post, No. 12, G. A. R., yesterday presented to the Center school of Norwalk, a , beautiful silk flag, in consideration of the fact that the scholars of this school for the last three or four years, have made the largest contributions of flovv-ers upon Memorial Day. that have made by any school in Norwalk. The presentation speech was made by the Rev. Dr. Noble in his usual happy way, and the flag was received by the teachers and pupils, who, rising, gave the customary salute, with the pledge of allegiance. A number of patriotic selections were sung by the school, among which were, "The American Flag," "Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean," and "The Heroes' Greeting." It is interesting, in this connection, to observe thaUthe Center school pupils, before any state law or secret order had furnished a flag and staff for the building, had raised the staff from their own subscriptions and solicited the money for the flag. That flag was the first to wave over any school building in Norwalk. ' Principal Tucker received the gift and made a pretty little speech in behalf of the school. The following members of the Post were present: Rev. T. K. Noble, Commander E. E. Pelton, C. F. Loomis, W. A. Kellogg, George W. Raymond, Jar-vis Kellogg, George A. White, Thomas Bradley, A. H. Taylor and Charles White. Senatorial Convention. The 13th District Republican Senatorial convention will be held in the Town Hall, Fairfield, morning at 10 o'clock, to nominate a candidate for senator. - ANNUAL MEETING.
