Charges Against Lockport Firemen.
At Lockport, N. Y., there is just at present a controversy on between the firemen and the fire commissioners in which the latter officials are charged by the firemen with scandalous conduct of their office. The firemen have preferred duly formulated charges with the mayor. The charges are misappropriation of fire department funds and extravagance in the administration of the department. The commissioners on their part say the whole matter has arisen because of the enmity of the firemen. The commisioners claim to welcome an investigation.
