Lively Proceedings. [by telegraph.] (From our own Correspondent.) Timaru To-day. The Timaru Fire Brigade, being unable to get their boots from the Borough Council, disbanded in a body, after voting their library to the hospital, their torches to the Artillery Band, and their sick and accident fund to trustees. Yesterday an express, manned by an ex-fireman, went to the station for the books, but the Council’s property man, instructed by the Mayor, refused delivery. On going to the bank to draw their money, the Mayor again stood in the way, and their cheque was returned marked “drawers’ right disputed.” Last evening it was resolved to take legal proceedings against the Mayor, and to forward full particulars re disbanding to the Fire Brigades Association.
