THE MAYOR'S MESSAGE.

Following Is Mayor McCnochie's an
nua! megsaite to the city council read at
Monday night's session:
OcaTLiaEKorTHR Cirr Council: In compll
oce with tbe law and the established customs of
my predecessors I herewith transmit for your con
sideration my first annual message. It has been
my endeavor to make it as brief as the questions
under consideration will admit of. and as we lorn
aaaln a new leaf in oar municipal calendar let ns
hope its bright pii" may not be tarnished by any
Improper or retrograde legislation which would In
any way Jeopardise that progressive spirit which
Is now slowly but nevertheless surely making Its
Impression on the minds of our people. Aud let
onr record be of such a character when written
thereon that It will bear the closest scrutiny and
stand tbe severest criticisms of time. I wish to
say one word in behalf of the council now retiring.
Tde members have made for themselves a record
that will stand unparalleled in the history of our
municipal government, not only for the pro re
sive spirit shown on all occasions and In the
prompt and methodical manner they have had of
tranaactlng lunniclDal business, but mnM miim.
- lallv for their harmonious actions displayed npon
"" every occasion in tact party lines were
entirely obliterated, no contention h 1.4 Yltill
except that honorable rivalry in which each indi
vidual member endeavored to excel his colleague
In trying to do the most good for the greatest num
ber. A majority of you have been HMOlati.rl tit.
gether and with me in the management, of city af-
rs in me vmn jenr. j nave no nonni nilrtttkes
may have been made: it is 4iuman to err. Km I
believe the mistakes were honest and not Inten
tional. I ruter upon this, my second year with a
renewed hoi, mid the experience of that year
Justifies me In believin? that greater results can
ba accomplished this year, and with a firm couvic
tlon of doing what is ruht and Just to all classes
ui oar people, ana in mis I ask your hearty co
operation and sun port. One thing should be
borne in mind, and that is the inspiration of every
ofltcer com ected with the administration of the
city foverunii'iit should and mast he a united

honest management of the cltv'a attaint ami tenh

Che first question I wish to draw voHr attention
to. Is the question of finance and revenues. This
nawssaruy is ine Important question. A failure
to aeep the city s finance in a clean and healtliv

W bile Mr Davenport in my opinion was the kind

atone for some of his mistakes by being com

nave my cordial support In pushing it through
The proposition of Alderman Hchtiell to build
sidewalks npon Third avenue upon the Installment
plan Is worthy of your consideration. If there Is
"lh ln5 we need more than another it la good
sidewalks. Cinder sidewalks are becoming very
common of late and by people who are well able
to do mncn better. They are .Imply a make-shift :
In fact they are no walk al all. They are very
destructive to floors and carpets and should be
discouraged by all who have any pride in the city

uur waterworks are In fair condition. Some
improvements win ne necessary around the water

my opinion of buying onr plant would be very
slight Indeed. I do not know what von
toay be, but personally I would strenuously oppose
U aale If the rates are to be Increased and flre

that I have not seen or heard anything of the gen

city cannot rnn Its own waterworks at a proilt if

they can nse free. The only advantage In the sale
wouia oe, mis company intended to build a reser
voir aaa extensions to be made In all the streets,
The nolle department, under that vigilant
cnieior ponce, Marshal Julller, with his able as
sistant, Ireputy Marshal Long, has kept the eity
in a perfect state of tranquility during the past
year. Nothing Is heard but what is a compliment
to this well organized and highly disciplined
force, which la a pride to the city. The require
ments of this department will be lees this year
than It waa last, when we bad a horse to buy, a
stable to bnlld, the police quarters to remodel and
repair at heavy expense.
- The atreet department la one which everyone Is 1
mora or less Interested in, and which, aa a rule,
comes In for more than its share of criticism and
abuse. But to tell the troth, it la entitled to more
credit than Is usually awarded it. Few people
understand the fact thaw aiity-ftm mile and the
aame of alleys must be kept in passably good re
pair, and as a large portion or tne territory witntn
tne cny limits is nuisiue and low grounas witn
but a few of the main streets improved, this nec
essarily requires a larje annual ontlay for repairs,
with but few permanent improvements to show at
the end of the year for the money expended.
But nevertheless, this important department, un
der the supervision of Superintendent Harris, waa
well and acceptaoiy manages, and aa a result
manyvalnable improvements in all parta of tbe
city are to be seen aa a monument to the untiring
zeai 01 mis vaiuaoie oepartmem.
The health di partment is and should be the
most important in the city government. To look
to the health and welfare of the people is a very
essential part of the duties of a city official and
anouia not be neglected. Health ordinances are
alwaya a difficult matter to enforce In cities of our
size; most people wish to consult their own judg
ment In ma ters of this character. But in the in
terests of all, sanitary laws should be rigidly en
forced. During the fall aud early winter diphthe
ria and scarlet fever was prevalent in the city to
such an extent that at one time It was thought ad
visable to close the schools, bnt happily it was
aoaieo, ano at tne present time tnere is nut a
few scattering cases in the city. Kor a detailed
report as to the causes, I will have to refer you to
the report of the health cotnnrssioner. Dr. Kvster
Hut 1 am or the opinion that most or it may be at
tributed to using impure water taken from old
wells in the thic ly settled portions of the city.
It Is strange with what tenacity some people will
cling to their old wells, which were no donbt good
forty years ago, when every bouse bad a block of
land around It. But now death lurks In every
draught from some of these Rime wells, which
nnder proper sanitary laws would be con learned
and tilled up.
THE FIRE PEPABTHEKT.
Onr fire department has always been the main
stall our people has had to lean npon for the se
curity of their lives and property, and it cannot be
said of them that theyever failed to perform their
perilous duty 01 to respond to a call for heio from
our neiKtioortng cities, now oiiett nave we
heard the terrible tire a'ann borne aloft on the
winter's midnight blasts, and a'niost instantly you
would hear the mad rushing of the hose and honk
and lsdder carriages to the scene of destruction,
straining eveiy nerve as though he who reached
tbe flre first would be knighted. 1 have always
been surprised at tne nign naie or eniciency dis
played by these indepeudeut organizations, al
though thev have a chief, which under all ordinary
circumstances they are in duty bound to obey-.
The city aids them financially probably rot g-ny
more man tliey nave 10 out nevermeiess inc-y are
virtually independent of their chief, the city or
each other. We will wake ut some -lmniitifr
without a fire company in the city amf what are
you going to do abint it? We cannot omp-1 them
to serve tuertty wtinoui compensation, rurnisltl"g
their own outfits, including their own horses and
apparatuses. Then on the otlir hand, the city's
annual expenses lor tire putybses is too large not
to control them, which we tfo pot under the pres
ent system. Some arrangements must be made;
this system cannot Vf conti"iied successfully
much longer. A paid, tire department will cost not
less than SIO.OCO pot annum. The question would
natural'y aiise, in'ourcity in condition financially
to support a psid department without crippling
other departments? Hie lirgt step would be the
fire alarm ?stcui, costing abont $-2..V). There is
what they call a partial paid tire department sys
tem In operation in some of the smallar cities,
whlcri understand is giving satisfaction. Per
sonally I know nothing about it and could there
fore neither approve or disapprove it. That sys
tem is to have two paid men in eich comp my'to
take charge and be responsible for all property,
to be always on hand and keep everything iu go, d
condition, tbe balance of the company to he vol
unteers. If we sheuld adopt a paid or partial paid
system, three companies would be all we could
afford one at each end and one in the center.
My idea would he to condemn the hook and adder
building on fourteenth street and the Nineteenth
street nose house and build a good bouse on
Flat Iron square, where the Hook and Ladder
company should be located.
TH l-AW DEPARTMENT.
The law department of the city bus been well
and ably managed. The city attorney can 00k
with pride and much satisfaction to his legal
schlevemen's during the past year, not alone for
tiissiicres.ini ucrense m tne many damage suit
he has been called npon to defend, but also in sur
mounting the many difliculiies encountered in the
ei'forcement of the special taxation laws, all of
which without a single exception he has can leu
through to a successful termination.
ROCK RIVER BRIDOES.
Tlie Rock rtver bridges will have no repairs of
any consequence this year. some slight repurs
are necessaxy on tbe Milan road. You are all
nodouhtwell aware the citv lost the toll house
last fall. If the policy of collecting tolls is to be
continued. It would be in the interests of economy
to buy a site near the north end of the noith
bridge and build a toll house. We now pay to the
Cooler heirs $1JMI per month for the privi ege of
using our own house nuiit on property whlcn
unfortunately for the citv, the title had
cloud iqion it which eventually oversliad
owed it aud extinguished our title.
THE SEWERAOE SYSTEM .
A proper sewerage sy.tem is indispensable to
preserve tne health or the people, unfortunately
our city, like most or the older cities or ine west,
always built to meet present conveniences with
out any regard to future requirements, and until
the r'lftb avenue sewer was built we had no well
defined plan. That sewer forms what uu my
opinion will be the basis of about the best system
or sewer our city situated as tt is, cau nave.
There is no doubt In my mind bnt that It would
be in the interests of economy to have the city
subdived into regular sewerage districts In such a
manner that would lusure ihe best system our
peculiar location will ajiult of. This would tie
cessitnte considerable outlay to make proper sur
veys, maps ana drawings, it our l'mirial750ns
will not admit of our perfecting a ot"KfTM, ..m"

Ltf tiuestlon of drainage Iu some districts of the
city is one which requires prompt and careful leg
islation ami engineering attention from a personal
visitation and examination In the eastern part of
the city. It seems apparent that a special
method must be adopted to meet the present
pressing necessities In certain localities. It Is
also clear that relief in .this regard can be secured
at present only by the expense being borne by the
property benefitted. Pome suitable arrangements
iu my opluion is necessary to have all sewers
properly and systematically flushed during the
summer months to keep down the had smells and
sewer gases; also to keep them clean in the ex
tiemely dry weather as at present.
awiipiNo the pavement.
Home plan must be adopted to sweep the paved
streets, as al present there is so system what
ever. Some will sweep one day, some another,
and the reactionists not at all. I have waited pa
tiently for the businessmen to take the lead, and
to Inaugurate a system for both sweeping and
sprinkling. I have promised in behalf of tbe city
to do our share with your consent, but no one bas
shown any disposition to take tbe initiative in
this matter, as it now appears we will have to
take tne tea 1. ano make some arrangements that
will be satisfactory to ihe property owners and tbe

chief attraction of tbe city, which will be a
credit to tne good taste and refinement of onr
people. 1 do noi believe that there is any way
that money could be expended to better advan

Intelligence and progressive soirtl of our citizens.
which cannot fall to Impress strangers favorably
wlihour enerify, and It has certainly an inspiring
influence upon ourselves, so badly needed, we
must all admit. Spencer square, nnder the ar
ti"tlc tastes cif our progressive park commissioner,
William Jackson, is passin? through a regular
transformation scene, and will ere Ioiir bloom ae
the rose, and when once completed we will no
longer hear people croaking that the old frog
pond was good enough for ns. The Garnsney
square park commissioner, Mr Youmrberg, baa
not yet to the best of my knowledge, adopted any
plan for the beautifying of that park, bnt there is
no doubt we will near from him in due time. As
to the best me mods of beautifying It, 1 think it
will be advisable to consult the views and con
slder the wishes of those living in tbe Immediate
vicinity. 1 have in my mind a plan which 1 thiuk
i the only solution of this vexed question, hut it
may be too radical to meet tbe views of those
in the west end. I, therefore, bold It iu reserve
for the time being.
ST. LUKE'S HOSPITAL.
We have in our midst a private hosnilaL
talned and aupportedchiedy through tl.e exert Ions
of a society of philanthroi ic Indies. There Is no
question but that they have worked baid to ale v
iat the sufferings of the unfortunates who had
been fortunate in coming under their kind and
skillful treatment, and iu their laudable eUorts
of trying to snstaln au institution of
this character 111 this city In the face of
adverse circumstances, they have never, to the
best of my knowledge, received any aid from
either the city or county. At present tbey feel
discouraged at the outlcsik for the future. Past
experience nas demonstrated to their entire sat
isfaction that even acbarllahe institution cannot
ue successfully conuucien unless tnere Is some
tuing more suusiaiuiai oemmi uiem than mere
promises. bills will accumulate and must lie
Bam: and If they are to continue in their be.
nevolent enterprise, they not only look to those
who generously helped to bear the burden here-
lorore. out also to tbe mass of the people through
the city council to aid them by a municipal do
nation. 1 have not looked the matter up to see
whethor such a donation would be outside of our
municipal authority or not. but there is no uues
lion in my mind that the object Is a worthy one,
aiiu aeserving 01 our consiueraiion.
I wish to say one word, gentlemen, of the city
council: While I am In favor of progress and im
provements In every department, 1 wish to draw
your attention to onefac.t, yon must alwajskecp
In view, which I have no doubt most of von are
already conversant with, and that is our eipendl-
uiresare uiniieu oy law, ana 1 think It is a wise
provision tbat it should be so. There Is no uues
tlon but most of these improvements are badly
needed, and some of them should have been
started long ago, and tt may be that we are trying
iu assume 100 mucn lor one year, and 1 wll. ad
mlt for myself I tinr have been a llttln tno nm
fuse with my recommendations, but with your aid
and advice we will do the best we can with our
limited means without imposing any additional
burdens upon tbe people.
ASSESS "D VALUATION.
I wish to draw your attention to anal her ques
tion which seriously afTectsus, over which we have
no control. Tbat la tbe steady decrease of onr as
sessed valuation aa equalized by the state board
of equalization, which will. If it has not already,
become a matter which seriously embarrasses
those havlr.g the city'a financial management in
charge. If this decrease is to continue it will in
the near future prevent even the most limited
public improvement, nntil some law is passed by
the state legislature to remedy tbe present de
fect While tbe gradual shrinkages of our
equalized valuation has been going on for tbe
past two years, every intelligent citizen it fully
a war that oar actual valoation has been con
stantly Increasing. Since 1879 the assessed val
aation of our city as equalized by the state board.
has decreased abont taOO.OOO. Commm cense
will teach ns it these figures were reve aed tbey
woald be nearer correct. This dec reap a hascnt
down our limit of bo ded Indebtedness f i,000,snd
our tax levy limit 0,000, It would apar that
there waa a united etiort on the part of tt e asses
sors of this state to see how low property could be
assessed 1 oeiteve that tt is rignt am proper
mat a limit should 'be fixed beyond whir a no city
council should paas. but that limit el oold be
made permanent qjr gradually increaeli g as tbe
growth and requirements of tbe city iemandr
rather than decreasing, when the - pub ic wants
and values are increasing.
In conclusion 1 wlBh totendor the retlr .ng mem
bers my heartfelt thanks for the many curtesies
extended to me during the past year. 1 shall al
waya remember with pleasure thia in cresting
epoch of our lives, in which our relation have al
ways been of the pleasantest character, nd It is
my earnest wish that they may carry w th them,
into private life the high appreciation t ley have
honestly earned as faithful and trusted officials.
To the incoming members, all of whim 1 be

glatnlatloca npon your good fortune ot coming

managed, be ihe means of setting th golden

whirring until we have a densely populuted city
extending from river to river. These prand
achievements can only be accomplished by con

TROUGH FOR HOGS AND SHEEP.
It la Simple in Construction, Cheap and
Wo give an illustration of ak. conven
ient trough for feeding hogs and sheep.
It is especially well designed for feedVg
hogs, and may be placed in the pen'the
swinging door above the trough forming
one side. If desirable to use it out of
doors, it may form part of a fence. The
construction is simple. Tvo upright
board standards, about four feet high,
are nailed to the ends of a trough to sup
port a swing doortir partition, which is
adjusted so that the lower edge plays
back and forth just over the top of the
A COsB ENlEXT FEEDING TROUGH.
The view given is the rear side of the
rough, and the partition is swung for.
ward to shut the animals away while
their food is being prepared. When
ready, the Blide is withdrawn, the parti
tion swings over the rear side, and the
iogs can "go in." . Slats of wood should
lie placed across the trough to keep the
uniinals from standing in it. By swing
ing the partition high enough, the liogs
may pass under.
Corn Meat for nutter.
Mr. Fnrlee, the noted Jersey breeder,
has great faitli in the use of corn meal as
an important part of a butter ration. On
this point Hoard s Dairyman fully agrees
with Mr. Fa rice as to the value of corn
nieul with this provision, that it be fed to
1 cow of distinctive butter temperament
and heredity. Dairy farmers who have
had experience with "general purpose'
cows, particularly high grade short
horns, have noticed that if a heavy corn
meal ration was fed for any length of
tune, thev would be quite apt to shrink
in milk and commence laying fat on the
carcass, litis no doubt is due to the
strong tendency to nVsh making which
they had inherited. It requires a cow of
strung, decided dairy hereditv to take
and convert a heavy corn meal ration
Kte.'ulilv into butter and not divert the
food to her own gain. The fact shows
how necessary it is, if we are to engage in
dairying, that we start right in breeding.
Points In Iiu-iibation.
EKs will sometimes hatch that hav
lieen hiid two months or longer, hut it i.-
not l-st to set eggs that have been laid
more than a fortnight. Fresh eggs, as a
rule, hatch out more evenly and in good
time and produce strong and lively
chickens. Eirtrs that have been lone laid
hatch biter, and the chicks are often too
weak to break the shell. It is not a
good plan to keep a hen on her nest after
lliechicks first hatched are ready to come
oil for the possible chance of getting one
or two more out of eggs yet unhatched.
for, if successful, the late comers will bo ,
at a disadvantage with the others, and
nre more likely to die than to lie raised.
