INTERNATIONAL FIRE EXHIBITION.

The following particulars as to the International fire exhibition to be held in London next year will doubtless be of interest to fire engineers and others :

It has been announced that the preliminary arrangements for the International fire exhibition have been completed and the general program has been finally decided upon. An eminently influential advisory council, representative of the great technical and fire interests, and headed by the president of the Royal society and presidents of the leading scientific institutions, has now been duly constituted and the various working sub-committees arc in course of formation.

The hearty co-operation of the Duke of Marlborough, K. G., president, and the leading members of the National Fire Brigades’ association, and St. John Ambulance association has been assured, whilst the various European continental fire authorities have promised active assistance. The preliminary work for the fire congress to be held next year, at the time of the exhibition, has also now been started under the direction of Mr. Edwin O. Sachs, chairman of the fire prevention committee. A number of most important questions will be discussed at this conference, at which the leading authorities of all countries will be represented. The exhibition will have the advantage of eminently interesting exhibits in the way of modem constructional and engineering work and the latest fire appliances, as also in the form of paintings, engravings and historical relics, so that the subject of fire protection, which is of so much interest to the metropolis of late, will be most exhaustively treated in every way.
