sage as follows:
tiilit'.euion of the t'liy Council:
It gives me great pleasure this evening to
again see assembled in the council the same
couneilmen us last year. The re-election of
every alderman from every ward in the
city at the late city election is a high mark

The three years past the city administration

at the present time in a Winded indebtedness

burden uMn the citizens and tax-payers
more tlmn they are able to bear, therefore
I suggest moderation in your actions to
ward any plan to relieve them of their
load under which they groan, give them an
opiHirtnnity to retrench gradually so that
that they may accommodate themselves to
the altered conditions, that may or will sttr
nuinil them, by any settlement that may Ik
made by ymt with' the landholders in the
way t'f a compromise ol the bonded debt
of the city.
Two priipositinns have been submitted
proposing to fund the debt of the city, as
First ppp.s:ti'-n is to fund the city Wmd
el indebtedness at 5o Cents on the dollar of
the principal alone, taking 20 years Winds
drawing i it cent interest.
The pre nt Winded indebtedness amounts
t. $4".373 'i'). funding said amount at '
cvnts. we would have to issue in new Winds
2 )T.t;o. 30. the interest on the same at
6 percent, would v the yearly sum of $15.
4 V. 10. to W' provided for.
The 2d,propisitim i to fund the present
1-ondetl city indebtedness w hich amounts to
4':i73, 30: overdue interest on the same
Ta.NXi.uO: total amount f"i41.H7:i. 30.
In lieu of w hich they propose to take in
various denominations in 20 y.iar new Winds
the amount of 270.OO.o(), ' W aring (! per
cent, interest payable senu-annually for
the first f'Kiryears'and for the next six-teen
years 10 per " cent., four per cent, of the
same to le applied to the redemption of the
Winds, the said interest and principle to la;
collected by coupons attached t the Wind,
so that at the expiration of twenty years
debt and interest would W- entirely wiped
out. Uy this last pmjiosition the interest
the first' four years would W- $1(1.200 each
year and for the balance of the 20 years
'$27,000 each year.
I believe the latter proposition is fair,
honerable and just, and the only trii" way
of clearing up our indebtedness, but in our
present condition can and are the tax-payers
prepared to meet this extra advanee of t:ivn
tion. I have my doubts. for wnile w e an- groan
ing underthe "load we are carrying. we are fry
ing by law to avoid the payment of interest
on the Winded indebtedness on the ground
of the illegality of their issuance and our
inability to pay. We have enacted an ordi
nance creating the office of city counelur
at a yearly salary of $1,100, and have ap
pointed W. H. Gilbert Esq. to the isition.
Suits have been brought against the city
for interest over-due: the city corjioration
counsel is defending the same in the I'nited
States Court at Springfield, and is of the
opinion that he will gain the suits. If such
be th" result, we had better be cautious in
any movements tending to a compromise,
but if a compromise is to be effected let it be
so done as to be aslight a burden as possible
upon us during thi generation, and if Cairo
prospers, as 1 believe it w ill. let terity take
care of the principal. I am of the opinion
that if any settlement is made the first one
is the be.'t fur the tax-payers in the present
condition of Cairo, and w ill be for a few
years to com". The tax-payer wiil much
more cheerfully pay si j.4.Vi 10 interest per
year than Aliiinn interest for the first four
years and $27,000 interest for th" subse
quent sixteen years under th second propo
sition. ewii if it diM's extinguish the debt at
th" expiration of twenty years. One propo
sition or the other should be .submitted to
u vote of the people for their approval.
The financial condition of the city, out
side of its bonded indebtedness, is far
better than it was a year ago or for
several years buck. Tlii has been brought
abnut by carrying out a plan of economy
suggested by myseif in previous messages
and recommendations to the City Council
from time to time, and by that body adopt
ed. When I became mayor there was in
the city treasury (May'l, l7."i,i in cash.
$1.40 '7!l, with an outstanding debt of
interest-bearing scrip to the amount of
$20,171) G2. This amount has been reduced
$14,o4o HI in the past three years, leaving
a balance now outstanding of' $"i.(i:i l 4:1.

amounts have been paid out for public im

Yet, w ith this large outlay, we have no gen

having met our monthly expenses punctu
ally. Taxes have I n iess every year dur
ing this administration. We had a cash
balance in our treasury of $10,(IIIN 4m on the
1st of May, lis. In concluding my re
marks on" the llnancial condition of the
city, I must say that the chairman oi the
finance committee, (for the past three years)
together with the balance of the committee,
(for thu pust year) have worked faith
fully and dllligently and have guarded
well the trust reposed in them, i A,

built and a large amount will lie done
during the present year considerable lias

proposals for considerable more street till

would suggest to adopt the plan of repair

W r, by this plan sidewalks needing re
pairs could be more readily repaired, n.
swer all purposes and save tiie city at least
$.10(1 each year, would also suggest for the
present, where practicable, the constructing
of cinder walks as a cheap and very desira

The jail is well managed and prisoners
worked to advantage to the city, but the

The city has recently bccolll" poe"d of
what i commonly known u the Iliinoi-.
Central railroad strip or at least that por
tion of it nmning parallel with I."W" ti t
from Itailroad aeini - to the southern t r
ininus of Washington a vcnii" except b tween ;

tained by at) arfaiig"inen with the Illinois i
Central railroad company by flu- ciiy va-!
eating T'Vee street above !lli street ami.
the Illinois Centra! deeding III" strip t l
the city. The city had a purpose in be- j
coining posessed of tl i s!rip. The purpose
was and is to enable the city to oll'er to
oth-r railroads a right of way into the busi
ness portion of th" city w ithout interitptioii
to the streets nnd avenues of the city, fj
the City Council had not hoped to sa eom- '
plish tills end I am quite sure the city
never would have taken the strip from the
Illinois Central railroad, It was thought
that an arrangement could be made with
the Cairo and Yineenn and the Cairo and'
St, I-ouis railroads to place their tracks mid
local depots on the strip.1 j
As soon as the arrangement with the Illi
nois Central was coiiMunmat"d the Cairo
and Yiiieennes and the Cairo and St. bonis
railroads was untitled of the wishes of the 1

Cairo and St. bonis railroad came here and
examined the strip, and thought the plan of
the city a feasible one, and signified a wil
lingness on the part of his road to meet the
wishes of the city, and with a view to fur
ther this purpose the mayor mid , vour spe
cial committee called upon Mr. Miller of
thcCidroand Yincenns and proposed a survey
of the strip at the joint expense of the two
rail roads, to ascertain the probable expense
and feasibility of the plan or plans suggest
ed bv the city. Hut Mr. Miller declined to
enter into any arrangement or pay any Hir
tion of the cost of such survi'y saying
that they had no means to make the survey,
and that their right-of-way over Commer
cial avenue wus as good us tlity, wanted.
This of coursu ended the ncgotictioni. fioon
after this thcspecial committee wus discharg
ed, and in a few days I was served with a
notice of condemnation ou thu part of the
Cairo k Yincennes railroad, to condi ni all
that portion of thu strip lying south of
Second t-trcct. If such a condemnation
hlimild be accomplished it would make the
strip a permanent cye son-, or a serious
burthen upon the city, and our corporation
counsel should be instructed to resist it to
its bitter end.
1 have taken some pains to inform my
self as to the feasibility of the plans sug
gested by the city, both as to tilling up the
strip to a grade w ith the cross streets, and
a to the putting the tracks on a grade be
low the streets so as to pass the trains under
bridges at the cross streets. 1 have talked
with practical railroad engineers and they
tell me that cither plan is feasible, but the
the one of putting the grade at a point so
as to puss the trains under the streets is the
most feasible and can be done at the least
cost, and is tin? most desirable With
to the railroad and the city, but
when one diss not Wttut to do a
thing it is easy to make a mountain
out of a molehill, or an impassable gull' nut
of a roadside wash, The prat ticul men
with whom I have talked tell me that the
sipc-water is an obstruction scarcely worthy
of consideration. would therefore sug
gest to your honorable Widy the employ,
uiciitofa competent engineer and drafts
man to make a preliminary survey of the
strip, and ascertain the cost of said im
provement, and if it is found practicable
and feasible, then we should make another
effort to get the railroads tiff' our streets. It
surely will be better for the railroads to
hate their tracks iimiii a permanent and un
interrupted right of way than to have them
upon a public stru t, subject to the ciir.tai:t
annoyance and litigation. The existence of
a ndiroad track Uon the greatest thorough
fare of uurcity is a public nuisance, undr
which the public will never rest easy, and
prox-rty owners injured thereby will con
tinue to resist the injury.
The feding W-twei-n the city and the
railroads ought to he mutual. No one can
say that this city ha not been libera! to
ward railroads: nothing has ever been
asked that we have not given; no contract
cut made by the city with any railroad has
Wen violated, our gifts to railroads h..s
made Us -oir burthened our prow rty for
many years to come. This we have done
in boiw of a just r turn for our outlay, in
hope to build a city lu re at this unrivalled
It is a much to the interest of the rail
road terminating at Cain) to build a city

Nothing make a railroad pav so well as a

along the line. Our citv is the friend of
