On Wedneaday evening he was one of the conteatanta in a 1 mile race at McCad- din Lyceum, Brooklyn. Local Topics ; (By the Editor) I The "West End Taxpayers Assccia- tion" or taxpayers from the Bay View , section have been stirring up things in the village, in a very creditable desire for more light. I have no desire to "take sides" in the discussion, nor to say anything ex¬ cept for the best interests of the vil¬ lage, and to report conditions as they exiht. At the meeting of the Board of Trus¬ tees Friday evening, Nov. 17, a com¬ mittee from the section referred to, appeared and requested several addi- ! tioiial lights. They were informed the ! Light Committee was considering where I to place a number of new lights I (about 20) and their list was referred ; to this committee—with power—as are all applications. Tuesday evening, Nov. 28, these same gentlemen met and discu»t condi¬ tions, and the next evening an attack or the police department and incident¬ ally the Village Hoard of Trustees, ap¬ peared in the Brooklyn Eagle, which was so eminently unfair that Mr. Nol¬ an, their regular correspondet^t, de¬ clined to take any responsibility for its authorship. It contained such state- men t.s as thenu: "Pinochle and Padded Reports charRed against police department. Nothing is done by the police to get thieves." "Bloodhounds will be ustd to the best advantages of the ta:<payers. " "If the dog puis the local police de¬ partment up a tree it would be a good thing." "The members will be required to take lanterns to their meetings for a time, as the lights are so few and far between, making a perfect paraaise for thieves." It would seem that if these people seeking light were responsible for thus 'advertiKing Freeport's inducements to burglars, etc., they certainly were not entitled to any more consideration than other sections of the village which had imnths previously been promist lamps as soon as tho plant became equipt to furnish them. i Trustee Myrick being in busi¬ ness in New York most of the commit¬ tee work naturally falls upon Trustee I Collard, (these two being the Light i Committee) who has been traveling ' over the village streets for months, try¬ ing to decide the places where the lights No. 6 ' in the Fire Department (H. E. P.) The annual supper and reunion of Excelsior Hook and Ladder Company will be held on Wednesday evening, January 'J4. The Village Board ol Trustees haa decided on Wednesday evening, De¬ cember 20, as the date on which to auction off the old fire apparatus aa recommended by the Fire Council. This includes two old hose reels, an old hook and ladder truck and a quan¬ tity of old hose. The annual drill of the department was held at tbe Imperial Hotel Satur¬ day afternoon, with but a few of the firemen present owing to the fact that the whistle was mt blown. The 50- foot extension ladder from the truck was placed against the side of the building, and the three hose companies in succession drove from t)ccBn Ave¬ nue west on Rose Street to in fronl^pf the hotel, laid hose and sent it up the ladder to the top of the building, tho time being taken when water left tne nozzle. Hose No. 3 was quickest, with Hose No. 1, second, and Hoee No. 2 third. A meeting to formally organize the new hiise company. Hose No. 4, waa held in Hrooklyn f'all Monday evening and about twenty, mo.stly residents of the northwesterly section of the vil¬ lage, where the company is to be sta¬ tioned, signed applications for mem¬ bership. Chief Cornell was elected the first 'honorary member of the compiiny. The members are very enthusiastic, and will probably present their charter list at. the next meeting of the P'ire Coun¬ cil, and the company will be assigned to service immediately upon approval by the Council. The following officers were elected: Foreman, llilbert R. Johnson; Ist asst., J. Jay Randall: 2iid, asst., J. (^ecil Powers; rec. sec, Elwood Rose; tin. sec, John Meaney; wardens, Al¬ bin N. Johnson and Louis Cozzens; trustees, John Germeroth, Forest Dun¬ bar and Vandewater Post; treasurer, William Ryder. BAYVIEW SECTION OK FREEPORT Scale lUOO ft. to 1 inch.

By virtue of his office President Gunning ia a mem¬ ber ex-officio, of all co-nmittees, and he with Trustee Myrick, on Thurs¬ day, gave orders to the village electric¬ ian to place every light demanded in the Bayview section. Friday evening, as reported in our notes of the proceedings of the Vil¬ lage Board, the Bayview committee again appearei and thanked, not the Board, but President Gunning and Trustee , Myrick, for giving them the light; and inquiries by Trustee Sig¬ mond brought out these facts. Also aa noted there, the majority of tbe Board thought the oiajority of tbe light committee bad been too hasty and ittUul Topics CnUiies n Pigi 5 With nearly 150 of the past and present members in attendance, the tirst annual dinner of the Freeport Fire Department waa held at "The Anchor¬ age" Wednesday evening, and was a success from start to linish. The speeches were of the sort to in¬ terest the firemen, and the speakers were enthusiastically received. The dinner was one of Caterer Long's best (encugh said) and the committee in charge feel that for the fiist one of the dinners its success exceeded their expectations. ihe dinner waa started with a prayer by the department chaplain, Hev. Charles Herbert Scholey. Ex- Chief J. lluyler Ellison acted as toast- master, and after the wants of the In¬ ner man had betii fully satisfied and cigars lighted, introduced ex-Deputy V'tre Commissioner V. A. Whitney of New York City who made a few re¬ marks before leaving for his train. He was followed by the department chaplain. Rev. (^has. H. Scholey, who needed but to rine in his place to oc¬ casion a storm of applause. Dr. Scholey spoke on the affairs of the de¬ partment, and of the honor he felt was bestowed on him by being elected the first chaplain of the Freeport Fire De¬ partment. Village President Gunning followed Dr. Scholey and spoke of the executive side of the department, and of the important part a gathering of that sort would play in the cementing together of the department me nbers. Alexander Rhodes, a charter member of Excelsior Hook and Ladder Co., in 1874, gave some of the history of the department when conditions were different from the present day, and ended his remarks hy urging that the old hook and ladderIriitk, which was advertised at auction, be not sold, but turned over to th'^se who were mem¬ bers of the old original company, that they might form a veteran company in the village. R. H. Mayland extended , greetings to tbe firemen and. touched briefly on the State Firemen's Heme at Hudson. A. B. Wallace, pre8i<lent of the S. N. Y. Vol. Firemen's Afi»n., spoke on association affirs, and stated that the next meeting of the rlirectort of the asFociation, instead of bein|^ ' held in Brooklyn, as has always been the custom, would be held in Freeport in January. Captain Hanse talked en¬ tertainingly fnr a few minutes and was followed by George Wallace, whose remark*'were alao to tbe point Telegrams of regret were read from ex-Chief Croker and James f.
