New York State Chiefs
Chief Henry R. Yates, of Schenectady, secretary of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, announces that the annual convention of the association will be held this year at Albany on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 18 and 19. Many pieces of apparatus are to be shown and ample provision has been made for the entertainment of the visiting chiefs, of whom a large number are expected. All active and retired chiefs of the state of New York are eligible to membership in the association, whether they are or have been connected with paid or volunteer departments. In addition to the exhibits of apparatus, papers of interest to the fire service will be read. As a consequence, there is not a fire chief in the state who would not profit by being in Albany on June 18 and 18.
The Gonzales (Tex.) fire department has elected the following officers : Chief, R. A. Remschel; assistant chief, R.S. Chambers; secretary, F. Ince; treasurer, J. Du Bose.
