The reorganization of the fire depart ment is a matter which is new fairly be fore councils for consideration through the representations of the insurance com panies, and the petitions new being sign ed by the citizens in favor of the 'paid system. The notable reason which makes our present organization unsatisfactory is the prevalence of incendiary fires and the recognized fact that the incendiaries come from the evil element of our popu lation that is found hanging around cer tain hose houses, and even controlling them through their constant presence at the meetings. When an engine house itself is fired during -a drunken ergie of such wretches, it is quite vain te deny their incendiary inclination and the danger te the property of the communi ty which arises from the existence of such firemen.

It is cred itable te the hearts of these who are new subscribing a fund for Mrs. Garfield that they are se impelled, but it would lie mere creditable te their heads if they forbore. Should the president die his widow will be taken care of by the na tion, and she may then properly receive all the Rifts any of its citizens may cheese te bestow uikhi her. New we doubt the propriety of their being re ceived or offered. United States officers are forbidden by law te receive gifts from foreign states. The only reason for the inhibition is that such gift may some lime be offered in the way of a bribe.
