THAT FIREBELL. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
THAT FIREBELL. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Will you give your valuable aid in assisting to abolish that public nuisance, the firebell? Why a place of this aize, calling itself a city, and with an all-night telephone service, should insist on waking up every man, woman, and child within a two-mile radius each time a small fire occurs passes my comprehension, and if you will enter the lists and keep on and on at our would-be village rulers we may in time find we can live without it.. Yours, etc., PROGRESS. Jnn. 2.

Hitherto she -has sailed on summer seas. This time she tried conclusions with the stormy Atlantic, and the Atlantic did not have the best of it. She encountered during the first four days out from Queenstown head winds, varying from south-west to north-west, which strengthened to heavy gales, and, on the second da_', into a hurricane. The seas were tremendous, even from a sailor's point of view. There had been - much curiosity to know what a ship of 17,000 tons, 704ft. long, would do in, these circumstances, and conflicting predictions had been heard.
