The City of Duluth.
The City of Duluth has taken no
backward step, while the past year has
seen a steady development along all
commercial lines: the wholesalee, ship
ping and manufacturing interests, and
the retail and building as well. We
have been building new school houses
that are properly supplied with able
teachers, and new churches whose
pulpits are filled by Christian gentle
men. A magnificent children's home
has been finished and occupied during
the year. This deserves special men
tion, because of the fact that it was
managed entirely by ladies who had
the welfare of the little tots in mind.
Our business men are more confident
than ever, and the coming year is full I
of promise, and every patriotic citi
zen of Duluth has his own mental
measure of the continued greatness
of our city.
Owing to the needs and demands of
the various departments, the confer
ence committee has found it exceeding
ly difficult to supply the money nec
essary, but have refrained /rom adding
any extra burden on the people and
kept the expenses well within our
income with the tax levy for the city
I shall not attempt to review the
reports of various departments, but
will touch briefly on some of the more
The Health Department.
The general health of the city of
Duluth Is second to none in the coun
try, owing largely, of course, to natur
al conditions and our splendid water
supply also largely to the able and
efficient medical fraternity through
out the city to our splendidly equip
ped hospitals and competent nurses
to our careful and capahle dealers in
drugs and medicines ana to the wil
ling and thorough co-operation of all
these elements with our city health
department. The stringent rules and
regulations of almost any department
that has for its purpose the general
good of the people, unfortunately
sometimes work hardships on the in
dividual but the general good being
of the greatest importance, must first
Our health department, with the
co-operation of the council, has
brought about certain reforms, which
in my opinion will result in great
good. The milk ordinance, for in
stance, when in full operation, can
not fall to give the consumer a health
ier milk supply. The regulations of
the department governing the report
ing and quarantining of contagious
diseases have been strictly enforced,
and the result has been beneficial to
the community the inspection of un
sanitary cellars, back yards, and alleys
has been most thorough. The condi
tion of the city in many places is still
unsightly, and must continue to be so
unless the people and real estate
agents will co-operate with the health
department in cleaning up. Compar
ative statemenets will show that the
health department may well be proud
of their work.
Disposal of Garbage.
The city of Duluth is rapidly reach
ing a point where the disposal of gar
bage must be reckoned with. Dump
ing grounds are becoming exceedingly
scarce, and after carefully considering
all of the conditions, the crematory
committee, composed of capable and
honorable citizens, have advised the
purchase of a garbage consumer. Hav
ing the greatest faith in the wisdom
of these gentlemen, I hope that you
will co-operate with them early in
the establishment of such a plant.
It is almost unthinkable that a city
of this size, with its surroundings,
should have been allowed to go so
long without a laboratory for the pur
pose of testing cultures. Physicians
and patients have had to wait anx
iously for several days to get 'a cor
rect report on cultures, when by the
establishment of a bacteriological lab
oratory, these questions could be de
termined in a few hours. We are about
to secure such a laboratory, which
must result in great benefit.
Duluth has been exceedingly for
tunate for a number of years in hav
ing as legal advisors, men of character
and ability. Our present city attorney,
aside of attending to the routine mat
ters of his office, has closed the com
plicated Barber asphalt case, with a
result that the revolving fund has been
replenished by something over $2000,
and a contribution made to the gener
al fund by the asphalt company
amounting to $1,746.
Default In Important.
One of the most important matters
that has occurred in this department,
and that only within the last few days,
is the default of the Warren Brothers
company to take any testimony in the
two cases brought against the city
to enjoin us from using a tar macadam
mixing plant or the tar macadam mix
ture. for both of which they claim
certain patent rights. These suits
were begun with every Indication of
a serious intention on the part of the
plaintiffs to carry them, if necessary,
to the court of last resort. The city
has as vigorously resisted, wishing to
settle this question if possible, so that
we might not be annoyed by like suits
in the futuree. While their defaulting
does riot give us any rights that we
had not before, or decide the case on
its merits, yet it encourages the city
and will encourage future contractors
in laying this excellent pavement with
out quite so much fear of being Inter

report will convince one of unbiased
mind that there has been less crime
In the city of Duluth in the last year
than in any city of its size in the coun

all suspicious characters and while
unable to suppress depredations of all
kinds absolutely, yet without fear or
favor, without persecution or favor

business and have made a record that
they may well be proud of.
Water and Light Department.
The Water and Light department
has been reaching out in variuos di
rections, endeavoring to keep pace with
the demands of the consumers and In
the immediate future, has in view the
extension of this public utility to
the people of Park Point, and the es
tablishment of a reservoir for West

have reason to be proud of what they

Under the new management, this
department has shown a very mater

employment, with a decrease in the

Some Pointed Reminders.
The street car company should be
obliged to make such extensions as
are rightfully demanded by the pub
lic and should be compelled to con
tinue their promised improvements of
equipment and service.
The public are demanding, and are
entitled to additional rights In a num
ber of places. The damage done to
our growing shade trees bv the care
less hitching of horses, and stringing
of wires, is a nuisance that should be
abated in some !way. Builders and
contractors should be impressed with
the fact that our. streets are for pub
lic use, and should not be allowed un
reasonable time or Ispace.
We hivi every redson to be proud of
our managing boards, that are serv
ing the city freely." They do so at
considerable sacrifice. to themselves,
and there is no hope that we can im
prove on aany board as at present con
stituted but It Is unfair to insist that
any one individual continue as a life
servant without pay. The city is un
der debt of gratitude to those re
tiring members who have served it so
faithfully and unselfishly. These hon
orable burdens are very properly
shifted from time to time, as provided
by the charter. While the incoming
members may perhaps bring new ideas
and fresh vigor, they will undoubtedly
maintain that high standard of excel
lence that has characterized the man
agement of their predecessors.
I wish to state here, however, that
if any member whom I shall appoint to
any board feels at any time that the
duties are too exacting, and that he

board and do the things that are ex
pected of him, that it will be a favor

The Public Improvements.
This year bids fair to be a busy one
in the line of public improvements,
and if the cit^ finally gets through
juggling with the mixing plant and
becomes possessed of it, and by the
use of the city rock crusher, (and in
this connection it seems so absolute
ly absurd to be hauling rock by team
from one end of the city to another
when a rock crusher near the work
would mean such a great saving) and
the fact that the Warren Brothers
company have defaulted In their suits
for infringement, there may be some
hope for a cheaper paving. There
should be and must be some way by
which the city could demonstrate the
actual or reasonable cost of different
grades of macadam paving, with or
without tar. If a certain number of
property owners could be induced to
petition for a piece of their paving to
be done by the city, as they have a
right to dot the result might be en
couraging. At present prices, the
property owner is not ^encouraged to

The Llghtlne On est Ion.
In view of the tact that our lighting
contract expires next year, the pres
ent council has seen fit to recommend
to our legislative delegation the im
portance of passing an enabling act
permitting the city to build a lighting
plant, providing the council and the
people think such a course advisable.
While I believe it Is conceded that our
present contract is unreasonable, and
it is not at all certain that both
the council and the public might not
endorsee another similar or more fa
vorable contract in preference to build
ing -be this as it may, the public has
a right to this protection and the re
quest of the council Is a plain busi
nesslike and reasonable one, devoid of
politics and I am informed that It
has met with the approval of some of
our delegation but instead of submit
ting this measure as requested, some
member has so cleverly loaded it
down that it will be scuttled before
half seas over. I confess myself some
what surprised that the council would
countenance any change beyond limit
ing the amount of bonds to be issued.
The New City Bnlldlng.
For the last five or six years the
matter of repairing or rebuilding the
city hall has come before the council
each term, and certainly In the near
future some further provision must be
made to accommodate the growing
business of the city. Having this in
mind, I recommended to your honor-

able body the appointment of a com
mittee to confer with the county com
missioners as to the advisability of
joining with them and erecting a joint
building. This of course contemplat
ed that their final decision would be
to build the county building near the
center of the city. Unfortunately
without legislative action, we are not
in position to make a practical prop
osition. I think the. city hall will con
tribute about one-third of the ex
pense of erecting a county building,
as It is.
Now, unless we join with them and
provide also for the city in this
building, we will soon be called upon
to build separately. I shall not at
tempt to enumerate the reasons which
must be apparent to any business man,
these buildings should be near
eaoh other and unless some arrange
ment is speedily made, our opportuni
ty will have been lost. The additional
cost would probably not be over $160
000. The value of the present city
property would amount to one-half
this. The present location of the city
hall cannot be said to be a desirable
one—certainly not for the council or
the municipal courts, because of the
proximity of the railroad .and the
noise of traffic both In front and in
the rear. We are paying rent for
the water and light department—I
think about $2,400 a year—which
could be taken care of in the new
building hence it is to be hoped that
the outcome of this agitation will be

Guided By Judgment.
Abraham Lincoln once said, while a
candidate for office, that if elected he
would endedvor to comply, with the
wishes of his constituents if their
wishes were made known to him. I
infer from this th^t even so great
and just a man as he, considered it
to be his duty to serve the people
as they desired, even if sometimes his
own judgment did not entirely ap
Now I do not pretend to have the
foresight of a statesman, or the as
tuteness of a finished politician, and
in the absence of some general ex
pression of opinion, I am guided by
good Intentions and whatever judg
ment I may possess. Believing this
honorable council to be composed of
fair-minded and well-intentioned gen
ttlemen, who are as much Interested
in good government as I am, I wish
to state that I shall at all times be
glad to receive and consider any sug
gestions you may, as individuals or
officials, care to make.
I am authorized to name certain of
ficials in the various departments.
Everything else being equal, I very
naturally prefer men who would not
only do their duty because they are
paid for it, but also because they have
a certain pride in the good name of
the administration. The salaries paid
in many places are not so attractive
to those specially skilled, so honesty,
common sense and moderate skill is
about all that we can expect to get
in those particular places. I have en
deaveored to do the best I could under
these circumstances. In this, as in
other things, I may be misled.
Won't Stand For Grafters.
The city is entitled to honest and
conscientious service and upon re
ceipt by me of reliable evidence from
a member of this council, officially
or unofficially, or from any source
whatever, that any man whom I have
appointed or may yet appoint to a
place, is not rendering the city such
service, or who is engaged in any il
legitimate scheme, connected with any
graft, showing any obnoxious favorit
ism, persecuting any citizen, or pro
tecting any vicious scheme, I promise
you that no party or organization or
individual has enough influence with
me to retain him In his place, if it
is in my power to dislodge him.
Now all this may be a trifle super
fluous, but I mean just what I say,
and while we may have little differ
ences of opinion as to the tariff sched
ule, yet we can all agree, In our mu
nicipal affairs, that the harmonious
working of all departments of the
city government would bring about the
best results to those who have seen
fit to place us In the positions that
we now occupy.
GIVE POOR SERVICE
NEW YORK, March 13.—Traffic
on all the elevated roads and in the
subway was handled in a manner
that failed to give adequate service
during the rush hours today. It
seemed as if the people had forgot
ten in a degree over Sunday the
conditions that obtained last week.
They crowded elevated and subway
stations, fought to .board expresses
and avoided front and rear cars.
Service on the subway which had
gained headway on Sunday night of
intervals of three minutes, was ir
regular and at all stations the po
lice and employes were rendered al
most helpless by crowds on the plat
form. A number of old employes
have been reinstated and they were
given charge of expresses, but the
irregularity of the locals run by
strike breakers rendered the efforts
to improve the service fruitless. Over
a thousand strikers have been giv
en their old positions and the com
pany is considering the applications
of many others. Several minor ac
cidents occurred during the day.
RELIGION AND DRAMA
Religion and the theater are things
so habitually separated by the habits
of modern thought that it Is somewhat
difficult for us to conceive of them
both as at one time indtesolubly united.
And yet the drama of modern Europe
like that of ancient Greece, took Its
rise In religious ceremony. The church
was the first theater, and monks and
the younger- clergy were the earliest
actors as well as the earliest writers,
projectors and managera of plays. The
drama has besn described as "Imitated
human action," by which is meant the
necessity that a play adhere to life it
self in Its movement and activity. The
drama has also been somewhat tech
nically defined as "an epic proceeding
by lyric parts," all of which means no
more than that a play !s a story told
by means of the successive feelings and
emotions of the characters involved.
Now, a story told by means of action
and the emotion Involved comprehend,
first, the telling, which is narrative or
epic, and, «secondly, the expression of
emotion In poetry or song, wh!ch is
lyric. Besides this, we have gesture,
facial change and pantomime, which is
action, and the use of language in dia
logue and monologue. Each and all of
these elements of the drama have been
found by those who have searched for
them in early services of the Christian
Thus the epic or narrative ele
ment is to be found in the reading of
the scriptures, the epistel and the gos
pel, to the congregation the lyric or
song element is contained in the hymns,
anthems, and other music which formed
an important and interesting part of
the Christian service from the earliest
times. The congregation in certain
parts of the service was expected to
join In response, and the element of
dialogue was accordingly introduced.
Two other elements remain, that of ac
tion or of pantomime, to be found in
the symbolical gestures, the bows and
kneellngs of the officiating priests, and
processions In which banners, pictures
fend images representing scenes from the
life of Christ or those of the saints,
were solemnly borne through the church.
