Boston to Re-Examine Men
The finance commission of Boston, Mass., has sent a request to Mayor Nichols asking that a re-examination he made of the firemen now enjoying the benefits of a pension. The commission claims that many of the men receiving a pension are now able bodied and holding down salaried positions.
the city council for an appropriation of medical examination of these men. The council refused to authorize the fund on the ground that as no provision exists for reinstating pensioned privates in the fire department, the ex-firemen would be left without pensions and also without a job in many cases. W. Baker, drill master.
