( f KN II. KM EN OK IHK I'olS' li With tt.i-
ineeting we end our otfiinal daties of the
year. I do not think it kOOSBt BTJ to enter
into any detailed statement of the pnsl year,
but, refer you to the r. port- of the rarionfl
officers and boards, which Brill be BnbtB
to you this evening. I call your special at
tention to the present financial condition ol
the city. The proposition for the City Hall
bonds is a clear proof of the good standing
we have, and I would urge upon all future
Council the importance of maintaining t Lis
standim; and it can be done by
the prompt collection of the revenue-,
the careful exiciiditure of the fund
aud a determination ne.er to an N d
the estimates, or, in other words, by living
within our income. I here would thank your
efficient Committee of Ways and Mean- for
the care they have shown in keeping the
Council informed on all matters oonOW Otod
with their duties. Their intelligent work is
worthy of careful consideration. Although
the past year ha- been oii. ,,f g-e.d lu-m
depression and many people have Ikm'U with
out work, our city has steadily increa-ed m
every way. and now, with every indication of
Utter trade throughout the country, we
may look forward to n season of great PfOS
perity. The past year ha- brought forward
many very perplexing subjects, matters that
have calltd for a great deal of thought
and study, and in my duties oj
your Mayor I may have made
some mistake. My desire has been a prompt
collection of the revenue, a fearle-- . uforce
ment of the laws of the State and city, pro
tection in every way 03 the people and their
business interest, a determination that we
shall ! governed for the good of the poonli
as a Issly and not for any act. creed or po
litical party, and how well this ha- been
done I leave for you to say. The IbV that
the Common Conucil is re-pon-ihle to a
great extent for the lawlessness and crime
and for the suffering that we see at time- in
our city has somehow got into the heads of
many of our citizens, and to remove thi
idea I would suggt to the
new Council that they carefully consider the
applications for -alooii liceii-e-; that men
who keep their place- in compliant with
the law shall not la-cla-ssl with those who.
under the cloak of a saloon business, run a
school of crime and destroy the value of all
proerty, tsith residence and bu-ii e--. as
well a the ace of the citizens. They will
also help to remove the belief by giving as
sistance to the police and court by ansfaia
ing them in their work. I OnonsnV I it unfair
for any one department of the city govern
ment to imio-e it duties ujsm another, but
we do believe that the very I rest of good
government can be had by each and every
department doing it duty fearlessly. The
harmony with which the different Imanls
and the Council has worked this past year
has given me great satisfaction and I earniet
1) hot- the said feeling will prevail for the
year to come. The kind ossiotsnce I have
received from eer o'Tce' .,;j,l ,,:;, . verv
department and bi'd the courtesies and
good will of all the iope has placed me
under lasting obligations. This may be my
last official connection with the cit) govern
ment, but I will never forget that I am a
c-,ti n. and a such shall ever strive for its
Vary re-rfuily.
