MR. BLA S REMARKS.
Ma c B lettner, this day marks an

two years it has been our pleasure, I
apeak when I say our, of your subordi
uas 4lBers, to serve under you. We
fee tbet we are to be congratulated
on having had one like yourself as
escbief offcial. We feel that we have
not~ been derelict in our duty, because

done that some appreciationi ought to
be shown, that appreciation which
speaks not' within the value of that
wich is given, but from the heart of
who are giving it. Your subordi
nate officers take pleasure this morning
in saying to the outside world that you
have made for this town a conscien

honorable servant. Your~ sul ordinate
officers say to the outside world that if
Mayor Klettner has made a mistake,
that mistake has been from the head
and not from the heart, because, work-'
ing as we have done in concert with
him, we know that every act, that ev
ery official breath, and every official
thought has been for the best interests
of the five thousand and upwards of
citizens of this town, which it has been
-his duty to represent.
And in retiring from you we wish for
you a happy and pleasant life; we wish
for you and we pray for you God's
speed in your onward voyage in life.
Whatever may be your trials or your
successes we beg you to remember that
yon have gained, not only from your
hearts of those whom you have served
so efficiently, the "well-done, thou
good and faithful servant."
In presenting to you this we do not
expect you to fill it with that which
may make the brain wander, or
which may cause you to do that which
you would not otherwise do, nor do we
expect you to fill it with that which is
administered at the sacramental altars
but whatever you may fill it with, or
whoever may quaff it with you, we say
to you, here is to you and yours, and
may you both live long and prosper.
responded as follows:
Mr. City Attorney, there are mo
ments in a man's life when the tongue
fails to express the emotions of the
heart. You touched me once twelve
months ago and left me speechless,
when you presented me a Masonic rai
ment, one which I shall ever highly ap
preciate and retain in memory of those
who have stood by me in trials and
trcibles during my administration .in
the year 1901.
Againl am the recipient from your
hands of this handsome token. It
needed not this, for if I have gained
your esteem, your love, and your confi
dence, I have done as much as I ever
expect to do, because I have enjoyed
every moment that my administration
has thrown me with you, and I am
standing here today again, without be
ing able - to find words in the proper
form to thank you for this handsome I
and valuable token.
Going out of this office, I wish to say
;hat I have only endeavored to gain the
admiration and the approval of those
who placed me in this high and honora
ble position. I can not say more. I
again thank you for your kind esteem
and consideration towards me.

MAYOR EARHARDT'S ADDRESS.
Fellow-members of the city council:
It is with some degree of diffidence that
I take upon me the responsibility with
which I have been clothed by the peo
ple of Newberry. My predecessor,
with the invaluable assistance of his
aldermanic board, has for the past two
years filled the office of mayor of this
city acceptably and with ability. I
shall try to do my duty as I see it, and
with your encouragement and hearty
cooperation, I hope to merit the well
done of those whose servant I am. I
have made no promises to any one; I
