THE FIRE BRIGADE [To Ite Editor of the oWbuizredsronr OunnONiCLE] Se,r-I shall feel much obliged if you will permit me through the medium of your paper to draw the attention of the insterested public to the fact that there is not nor has been a fire brigade-in existence in-Williamstown for the last twelve months,- the Council's polite. letter to an imaginary Foreman notwithstand ing; and still we talk of a pattern Munici pality. There are two members of the Coun cil somewhat interested, one of them particu larly so ; and because he has seen the nec~ssity of having something done and has spoken of- it several times, the case has been sneered at by men who have yet to learn that they.have been sent to the Council not only to levy rates, but by them to protect property before they improve it. - This carelessness has been permitted too long.
