NEED A FIRE PROOF
AIIIIEX, SAYS CHAIRMAN
IJT APPBECIATVE LETTER TO
Thanks Fire Department for Ef
ficient Work at Court House
Fire Yesterday Morning.
In a latter to James H. Wood, fire
chief, thanking him and his men for
their successful efforts in putting out
ths fir. In th. court house yesterday
morning, Chairman W. B. Johnson,
of th. county commissioners, draws
attention to th. ne.d of a fireproof
annex to the building for the preser
vation of official records. ' This recalls
to many the previous agitation for
such an annex and there appears to be
a strong revival of interest In th. need
of it now.
"Had the fir. not fortunately been
discovered." said a business man yes
terday, "and had not th. department
worked so efficiently, all the tax rec
ords and other matters of record,
touching th. title of every piece of
property in this city and county, would
have been destroyed. So tremendous
a calamity would have overshadowed
many time. th. construction of a fire
"While there is urgent need of more
room for the proper accommodation
of the farm agents, for instance, for
th. Installation of suitabl. rest rooms
for th. men and the women of the
county, for the engineer and the
health officer, the . absolute safety of
the. matters of record In the building
is the paramount issue. I would like
to see a concrete building, say, built
twenty feet from the present building,
and designed to safely house such of
fices and records bearing on property
titles here. Had this fire been In an
other part of the building, where it
might have grown to more serious pro
portions before being discovered, every
property owner in the county would
have something to think about now."
The letter from Chairman Johnson
to Chief Wood follows: . , .
"The chairman and board of county
commissioners of Buncombe , oounty
desire to thank you and the men of
your department for your quick and
efficient efforts In putting out the fire
of unknown origin in the Confederate
relic room at 8 a. m. on the morning
of October 12.
"The damage is not very extensive
and ia covered by insurance with the
exception of certain old records valued
by reason of sentiment.
"This fire may prove of great bene
fit to the people of the county, pro
vided it brings them to the realiza
tion of the existing state of fa.ct that
there Is not a fireproof repository for
official records In the county court
house. We have thought that a fire
proof annex should be erscted for the
preservation of official records.
"In view of the existing conditions
the people of the county should keen
ly appreciate the efforts of your de
partment. The destruction of the
county court house by fire would havn
meant the destruction of every official
record in the county." ;.
