Athletics. Mayor Wilson; discussing his mes sage, to the Common Council, said, to day: , '( . .;''.'.;; ' . 'y-. - VA number of ; other ' changes have been1 suggested by the work and in vestigation of the. various departments of our city, but those 1 which I have enumerated in, my, communication r to the Common Council, Monday evening, seem : to be the most , impor tant ones. 'W must not lose sight of the fact that ' Bridgeport is growing .'very .rapid ly, and it seems to me that the pro jects suggested would have a, tendency to stimulate the, .developments of our city and materially aid it to achieve the place for which it is destined. "'The larger improvements cannot be had .by relying1 solely upon the revenue derived from taxes, without a material increase In the tax rate. ' Tha only way. by whiih .we. can enjoy these im provements and -keep pace .with the. neeas or our .city ;w , by 'spreading the cost', of such - projects over a term of years. This is accomplished by-means of bonding. By issuimr serial; bonds. : which means the retirement of a cer tain amount of the indebtedness thus creaeir ah . year, the. old - policy ?o pay as you go' is adhered to, for there is ; nc reason , why any improvement5 of a permanent-nature should be paid -for in any one year. h ;The; enjoynwmt of Bucn project - is . just as keen ; a , t e-wf years:: after ilts i completion, .as ; on'- he day. c-f ' its first enjoyment; yMs method . enables tH city tc keop its tax t-ate, stable and yet have the bene fit of many things which it needs. ; am ; unalterably '.opposed ; to a higher tax - rate than . 15 ; mills, and I believe , that- this : rate",'hould remain fixed year in , and year 'out. - - There is nothing: more -attractive - to outsiders and no - greater? source- of satisfaction to the people, within our - borders than the knowledge that the finances of our city -are absolutely stable. -, ' "One of the ' things mentioned in' my communication to the Viouncil Monday evening was the installation of pump ing stations for : the purpose of dispos ing of the sewage ' of the city. This would comprehend the construction . of a few large interceptor sewers : which would conduct the waste to the pump ing t stations and- by them ,'; be carried ofr to a distance: fhich . would i make impossible any nuisance. i ."The harbor is quite foul' now from the sewage which empties into it, and as the city s grows, unless this is rem edied, the results ; will-; be well nigh unbearable., The destructive burping of garbage, ashes and ' rubbish, as is done In other ctiies, . would furnish power which could be utilized at the pumping stations. I would like to see the city collect all ashes and rubbish, excluding only the waste products of our manufacturing plants. "The present- almshouse is unsafe and only by ' the greatest vigilance . is It kept sanitary. . . It is wholly inade quate for the needs of 'our, city in this particular. The almshouse is -open to the inspection .of.' any o our citizens and may be examined by any one in terested enough to visit the same. "The river traffic has made it nec essary to dredge to a greater depth above Bast Washington avenue bridge than was contemplated when the pres ent bridge was constructed. About a year ago , the ' government engineers who were dredging the harbor found it would he- unsafe to dredge to the same depth, under this bridge as- they did above and ' below the bridge. It should be replaced with a wider one. In making, this improvement,' as in all others, . the future growth of the city should be kept in mind. , "The proposed State street ' bridge which was intended to relieve traffic conditions around, Fairfield avenue and Main street, has been , reported by the city engineer as not feasible; ' the strructure would be awkward and the cost almost' prohibitive for the city. A bridge 100 feet wide to replace the Stratford avenue bridge would amply provide for the . traffic at this point. It would permit of wide sidewalks, a space for trolley tracks and approxi mately 45 feet for vehicles. .1 believe that the railroad company would co operate and . remove the pier which at present stands in the middle of Fair field, avenue, under its viaduct, which, by the way, should never have been there, and truss, from the pier south to the one immediately north of the one in the Street. This would give a convenient approach to the bridge from Fairfield avenue . and Water street both north and south of Fair field avenue. "It probably would be desirable to widen Stratford avenu.e. as far east as Kossuth street, but this would involve very little expense, as there are no buildings of large value along this point. The railroad people would of course pay Its portion of the cost of this- bridge as well as of East Wash ington avenue bridge. "The rapid development as suggest ed of Fayerweather Island would give us a boulevard from Seaside Park to the island; - The - project would also comprehend the' erection of adequate and commodious bath houses to re place the present cramped quarters of the bathers, and also the reclaiming of many acres of ground to the im mediate west of Seaside Park, where an athletic field could be laid out for all kinds of sports. These are just a few of the things which the im provements suggested contemplate." Atlantic City.

Gov. -Wilson had , only the vaguest idea of the day'a proceedings and his lieutenants were equally uncertain as to actual '.plans, but nobody bothered about- details. When the Governor arose at his usual hour he knew that James was to tell him ? that he had been nominated for President and that he was to make a speech in reply ac cepting the nomination, and declaring hie principles. That . speech the Gov ernor was prepared to read. The Gov- ernory also knew, that luncheon was to be served about half -past one to mem bers of the committee and' distinguish ed visitors, but he was not sure of the identity of any of the prospective guests other than the chief actors in the play. It sufficed that food enough was prepared to feed all that could get in the house. . It was agreed by Gov..
