NEWARK BOARD OF FIRE COMMISSIONERS.
At a meeting of the board of fire commissioners of Newark, N. J., on the 6th instant, J. B. Olkers was elected president of the board, and T. Edward Burke was elected commissioner for the third time. Commissioner Burke is certainly deserving of this honor, as he has displayed considerable tact and energy in bringing the Newark department up to its present efficient condition.
Chief Garverich, of Harrisburg, Pa., has removed Eastman Deluge sets and intends equiping every Company in the department with them.
