The formal resignation of
Mayor Alfred A. Perrine ,$t
Mt. Vernon, eleCtW miyor
;ef the city by the Socialist
party at the fall election of
1911, signed by himself on
June 24th, 1911, was pre
seated to the city council
Monday evening by a delega
tion composed of members
of the Socialist party.
The mayor's failure to
discharge 'certain employes
of city department of safe
ty is given as one of the rea
sons for.tht presentation of
V Mayor Perrine indignant

"I amJthe inaybr of Mt;
Vernon, of "the Democratic
partfy, of the Republican, So
cialist, Prohibitionist and ev- (
ery other existing party and
not merely of the Socialist
party alone. I ask council to
'ignore the resignation." '
The action came like a bolt;
out of the blue sky. For
some time there has been, dis
satisfaction among members
of the Socialist party but
measures of so.rigid.a nature
were not expected. At a re
cent meeting, however, the
Members of the local who
'were present decided to pre-
sent the resignation, which
has been treasured for twenty-one
months by the' party:

"The resignation presented tonight Is
Illegal to begin with because It was

In pckthg further the mayor re-'
peated parte of the above In order that
his meaning might be made clear. He
explained bis attitude and made it
known conclusively. He said:
"I tell this because I want council to
be thoroughly acquainted with the clr

IN MAKING LOANS
every bank always favors its depositors
In fact the man with a long record as a reliable
depositor, establishes a reputation and creates an ob
ligation on the part of the bank to carefully consider
his application for a loan.
Of course the mere fact that a man is a depositor
does not in itself entitle him to a loan.
His credit or security must be good, but the point
we wish to bring out is that his. being a depositor k
