Diaorlption of Ita Workings and Ad
The chemical engine arrived Satur
day afternoon at 3 o'clock and is now
quartered in the place prepared for it
in the Phenix Engine honse.
ibe engine is a Very beautiful ma
chine, and all day yesterday was
viewed by curions crowds. It was
built in Baltimore by Charles T. Hollo
way and is one of the largest pattern.
It weighs throe tons whrn in service
and has a capacity of 120 gallons. It
will certainly bs a great adJition to
the fire apparatus of this city. Its
ureutest recommendation is that it per
mits iustantaueous attack on the fire.
There is no connecting or coupling to
ie done and the hone does not need to
be entirely unreeled to be used. The
ylinders are charged by simply turn-
ng a lover, which dumps the acid
from a chamber surmounting the cylin
der into the water aud soda with which
the cylinder is kept charged. The two
eels of tbe boae are always connected
and can be supplied from either or both
cylinders at the same or at different
times. It is so arranged that while
oue cylinder is being used the other can
he charged without interfering for an
nstant with the sunply of tbe hose.
Arrangements are being made to give
puuiio exhibition of its workings
next Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock,
near Johnson's breaker.

Irish-American societies and shall be rep

tlie respective societies may see fit to se
lect. The Sous of Columbia Council, No.
3, represented by J. T. White, James
T. McCarthy aud P. T. May, made a
vigorous protost against the adoption
of the resolutions. These delegates
said that their society was Catholic in
purpose and embraced members ot all
nationalities providing tbe member
was a Catholic. In their society wore
Welshmen, Germans, Hungarians and
Polanders. If the word Irish were not
eliminated from tbe title set forth in
the resolutions many of their members
would be forced to resign or else the
sociHly could not become a member of
the federation. Johu T. Malone, from
tho Father Whitty's Temperance soci
ety, objected against the word Irish in
the title on the same grounds as the
Sons of Columbia, stating that theie
were several members of the Father
Whitty society hot Irish.
J. V. McLean, of Bellevue, said that
no temperance society, in fact, could
join in the movement if the resolutions
were adopted. Mr. McLean was an

Mr. D. vine said that ho saw ao reason
or grotiud why any temperance society
could not belong to tbe movement.
Mr. Deviue's speech was answered by
Delegates Maiouey, White, McLean,
Martin and May.
In the course of bis remarks Anthony
Martin, of St. Paul's Pioneer corps,
made a motion that the resolutions be
printed and a copy be sout to each

members of the societies instruct their
delegates how to act at next meeting.
