Paid Fire Department

Philadelphia Inquirer – August 17, 1871

At a recent meeting of the commissioners of the Paid Fire Department a resolution was passed declaring that, after the 8th of September next the places of such extra men whose business requires them to be in Philadelphia during the day, to be vacant, and shall be filled with men doing business in Camden. This resolution cuts off six of the most active members: – Howard Lee, Thomas Allebone, Charles Evans, B. H. Connelly, C. Daubman, and Stephen L. Thomas. The salary of these men in the department is only $50 per annum, consequently they are necessitated to follow some other occupation.
