simply say that the business men of
the city should go with the majority,
back up public opinion and strive In
every way to attain what the majority
of the public deems for the best inter
ests of the city.
"in my first public document, also
In my recent addresa to the Common
Council. I made the statement that I
would carry on the Investigation of
the cost of producing electricity, with
the Idea of lessening the cost both to
the city and to private consumers.
That position I still maintain and I
will endeavor to crry out my pledge.
I ask that you Join Individually with
me. give your co-operation, and we
may be able to accomplish something
not only for the city but for the citi

Mayor Buckingham then made a few
"suggestions."
."When you bave complaints to

the garbage can. Don't allow them
to sweep the dirt into the streets.
"Often we hear of the merchants'
cellar door extending into the side
walks, and being elevated from half
an Inch to three Inches above the
walk. Tenants would better the con
ditions of the streets to have owners
lower these to the walk level.
"The replacing of the antiquated
signs on some of our business houses
with modern electric signs would be a
great benefit to the city. We might
easily have three great white ways.
Main street. State street and Fair
field avenue. I don't know that the
expense would be so great " began
the mayor.
"Most of us know about that" In
terjected Former Alderman Graves.
The mayor suggested the establish
ment by the business men and the
board of trade of a bureau of in
formation for the guidance of strang

There are many advantages in buying your piano from the Wissner
House. Your choice is not limited to either high, low or medium priced instru

reasonable amount you care to pay. Those-who are not sufficiently informed
on the piano subject to decide upon the grade will secure the desired knowledge
at Wissner's, where ALL grades can be seen, heard and compared. You deal
with a house that operates many retail ware rooms in Greater New York and

of trade to merchants for such con
veniences would surely attract out of
town trade. '
In closing the Mayor expressed anew
his appreciation of the opportunity of
speaking to the business men. "All I
ask" said he "is that we should
all co-operate to the best of our abil
ity, for the benefit of our City, the
best city in New England states. We
love it. and we love the people In it.
We want to - see Bridgeport progress
as It has in the past. Bridgeport is
growing rapidly. The industrial con
dition of Bridgeport today is better
than it haa been for some time. We
are recovering more quickly than oth
er cities. Let us all Join in the ef
fort to keep Bridgeport in the prom
inent place she should hold among the
cities of the nation. The business men
are a great factor. Whether it be in
accepting appointments to office or on
committees, I hope you will willingly
accept any office that may seek you.
Eo not say that your business will
not allow you to accept such duties.
Remember that whatever benefits the
city, benefits your business and bene
fits you."
Mayor Buckingham took his seat In
the midst of a hearty round of ap
plause. City Clerk Boucher was also warmly
greeted. He said he had not had much
practical business experience and
could not talk to the business men
from the standpoint of a business as
sociate, but he felt equipped to give
them some suggestions along the line
of practical politics. He said the bus
iness msn. especially in district oo'l
tics, was prone to assume a neutral
position, far fear of antagonizing ihe
rival factions. Bach man. he said

business man In politics is to join
with his fellow business men upon the
various issues at stake, that th bus

"The public service corporation's

of the people who suffer most, allow
tihngs to go by the boards. There" Is
absolutely no way to remedy these
conditions except by the application
of political principles. City Clerk
Boucher was heartily applauded.
A hearty laugh was occasioned at
the close of the address, during the
eeneral discussion, when Joe Stoehr,
the jolly marketman. called attention
of. the business men to the fact that
the mayor's trolVey committee had al
ready accomplished good results. He
said he had seen a new car, with
plush seats, running on the North. 'ain
street line, past the Mayor's house.
"I saw a friend of the mayor rid
ing in the car. too" said Joe. "I think
it was his mother-in-law."
"Sure It was a friend. Joe?" queri
ed a vojee In the rear of the hall.-
Mr. Vincent asked the mayor to call
the attention of the trolley commit
tee to the present transfer system. He
aid the transfers now are so printed
that one who is at all near sisrhted is
unable to know whether they are
properly punched. Senator Vanwaring
isked the mayor also to bear In mind
the predicament of the man wlio
sweeps his snow covered sidewalk
only to have the trolley snow ploueh
hurl a -bank ot snow back every time
it risses. ,
The mayor was asked what cou'd
he done to change the conditions un
der which the state confers ritrhts to
corpora Mns without repect to the
citv. His reply was that public In
terest, and concerted effort by such
organizations as the business .men
would bring aWwt the desired resu'ts.
A vote of thanks was extended to
hoth Myor Buckingham and City
CVerk Boucher.
The business meeting of the associa
tion was brief. One of the steps taken
was to intercept the possible sale by
the Toung Men's Republican league of
a kitchen outfit belonging to the bus
iness men's association. President Po
lande said he understood the effects
of the lea true were soon to be auc
