Event date: Mar 16, 1894

One long whistle will be sounded at the Estey factory hereafter when the watchman discovers a fire and no alarm has been pulled in, and he does not know the exact location. Afterward it is expected that people in the vicinity of the fire will pull in the proper alarm. The last two fires were seen at the factory before the alarm was given.
