Alderman "Winter, from the finance
committee, reported having examined the
city clerk's hooks and found them cor
rect and in admirable order. The conn
cil then took an Informal recess and on
being recalled to order Mayor Blanding
delivered his valedictory address.
Mayor McOonochie on taking tbe chair
suggested a rising vote of thanks to the
retiring mayor, which was unanimously
voted, on motion of Alderman Ed
Mayor McConochie read his inaugural
address as follows:
Gentleman of the CityCouncil :
On my assuming tbe duties or mayor
of this city I wish to say briefly that
while I appreciate the honor conferred
upon me by my fellow citizens I do not
fail to recognize tbe grave responsibili
ties placed upon me not merely in being
called to preside over the deliberations
of this honorable body, but for tbe faith
ful discharge of every duty pertaining to
that office, at a time which we all hope
to be the eve of an era of increased gens
eral prosperity and important public im
provements. You must not expect any
extended remarks from me. I have
neither the natural nor educational quali
fications of my immediate predecessor,
who retires with honor to himself and
credit to the city. His economical and
conservative policy in the management
of public affaire reflects credit upon the
administration just closed. If we emu
late our predecessors in their watchful
regard for the city's best interests we
shall earn tbe confidence and respect of
all good citizens.
In tbe appointment of city officers I
have been deluged with recommenda
tions and petitions in the interests of
candidates. It becomes my duty to set
aside all personal and sentimental feel
ings; I am even compelled to ignore, to
great extent, the solicitations and
recommendations of friends by selecting
only such men as I believe" are tullv
qualified for the positions assigned them
I shall insist on sobriety on the part of
officials in every department of the city
I shall make but a few recommenda
tions at this time, simply drawing your
attention to a few of the most Dressing
subjects. I am not disposed to read tbe
council a lecture as to their duties. I
sincerely hope you will work in har
mony with tbe business interest of tbe
city. I find a disposition on the part of
many of our leading business men to
make improvements in various ways.
This is very desirable and should be en
couraged. It is to be hoped that no
hostile legislation will be the cause of
preventing or retarding any projected
enterprise that would be beneficial to
the city. I am of the opinion that with
harmonious action on the Dart of this
council and the business interests' we
will have an era of prosperity the like of
which we have not seen in twentv vears.
I wish you would carefullv consider
the annual reports of city officers, and in
making tbe annual appropriations for
the ensuing municipal vear you would
be as economical as possible without
crippling the service in any department.
Provision should be made to create and
begin a sinking fund to enable the city
vu uieei its ooiigauons as tney become
due, and thereby relieve the people from
an interest burden they have borne for
I believe a reduction in tolls over the
Milan bridge would be beneficial to the
business interests in tbe center and west
end of the city, but if in your wisdom
such a reduction cannot be safely made,
it would seem advisable to take a portion
of tbe surplus revenue from that source
and improve the Milan roads and streets
leading into the city from the southwest
by making several good streets across
I wish to draw your attention to our
sidewalks, many of which are now in a
deplorable condition- Something must
be done and that very g0on to enforce
the sidewalk ordinance. Accidents are
Hable to occur at any time. All defec
tive and damaged sidewalks should be
condemned and if they cannot be renew
ed or repaired at once they should be
taken up and thus prevent tbe city from
being deluged with damage suits. Manv
ef our people are putting down walks of
cinders or ashes. I am not very favor
ably impressed with these walks but tbey
have the advantage over plank in that
accidents are not as liable to occur as
upon the plank walk.
In looking over our city squares I find
tbey are not pleasing to tbe eye nor cal
culated to create a good impression on
the minds of strangers sojourning in tbe
city. I am in favor of improving them
by placing sidewalks around and across
the squares, with good shade trees, grass
and iron seats at intervals, and perhaps
small lakes or basins in the centre, with
fountains. Union square should be
raised to grade, curb stones placed all
around tbe outside. I think good walks
could be made with macadam covered
with gravel and well rolled, that would
answer all purposes. It would be dur
able and not very expensive.
Tbe embankment wall at tbe west end.
under contract and now completed, I
have not seen yet, but I understand it is
a good job. I do not believe this is all
that was contemplated. Tbe whole sys
tem should be carried out this year and
thus prevent, if possible, the city from
sgain being flooded.
Earnest attention should be devoted to
tbe paving question. Harmonious ac
tion between us and tbe property owners
on Second avenue is essential to the sue
cess or the project The first step is to
agree upon tbe material to be used. I
understand your position fully, vou can
enforce a paving ordinance regardless of
the wishes of the property owners, but
am opposed to such action. It is my de
sire and will be my endeavor to work in
narmony witn you upon ail questions
loosing to our common welfare.

be non-irritating, easy of application,
and one that will, by its own action,

treat catarrh during the past few years
obliges us to admit tnat only one remedy

that is Ely's Cream Balm. This safe and

this fact. The more distressing syrup.

Before the freshet yesterday.
To find the bottom went the cans.
Along with kettles, spoons, and pans ;
But safe above the house and mill.
The IVORY SOAP ' was floating still ! 1 We'll praise theSoapthatridesthewave!"
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it,

For, strange to say. 'tis not confined
To cleaning things of every kind.
From coarsest cloth to finest lace,
From painted walls to pimpled face.
But proves indeed the greatest prize,
When rain descends and rivers rise ;
So while we have a life to save.
