New Fire Force at Milford, Ore.
Captain J. W. Lawton has been appointed chief, and Victor Danielson assistant chief of the Milford, Ore., fire department. Chief Eugene Amann resigned because the City Council ordered him to sleep in headquarters station, which he would not do. He was a member of the department 24 years and its chief for 12 years. Assistant Chief H. D. Ling was appointed acting chief, but because the Council refused to pay him the salary his predecessor received he declined the position and resigned from the department, and Mr. Danielson, driver of the motor wagon, was appointed his successor as assistant chief. The volunteer department disbanded in consequence of Amann’s resignation.
