A speelnl meotlng of tho board of alder men was held Tuesday to consider the city's finances. A communication was received from Mayor Burko and a motion was passod Instructing City Attorney Brown to draw up u ietltlon to tho mayor to cnll a citizens' meeting to seo what action they would tako relative to Issuing bonds to tike the plnco of temporary loans. All the aldermen were present. The following communication was re ceived from Mayor Burko: To tho Honorable Board of Aldermen, of tho City of Burlington. Gentlemen: In accordance with the provisions of the City Charter I deem It my duty to call the attention of your honorable body to that part of tho city's finance.' knon as a deficiency, and which must be Increased In the near futuro to a sum representing not less thnn $01,000. A you are well awnre, the city treas urer has Just finished 'the collection of taxes for the year 1M, and notwithstand ing this fact, nt your Inst regular meet ing, yon wero called upon nnd did au thorize the city treasurer to mnko a tem porary loan of $20,W. to meet tho ac crued nnd accruing liabilities of tho city. I also find on looking up the recprds, that nn October C, of hift year, wo began mnklng these temporary loans, and havo been doing so for somo time, paying at the rate of five per cent. (fi1 for same. I wish to again call the attention of your honoriiblo body to the fact that on the first day of January, ino:!, there was a deficiency of about $10,000, and so stated In my former message, and as no pro vision has been made for the payment of same, It still remains as one of tho lia bilities of tho city, nnd ns this sum Is to be Increased ns stated above by at least $21,000, by leason of the erection of our library and poor farm buildings, calling for tho sums of J 16.0" and $3,00) respec tively, making a total of at least $fil.W, which we must carry paying nt tho rate of live per cent. (."). unless we devise some other means of carrying the same at a lower rnte of Interest a thing I would lienrtlly recommend. But before any such action Is taken by your hr.nnrable body, If you so decide, I wish to call your attention to a resolution liearlng upon the construction of our library bupdlng nnd passed by the board of aider men, April 7, ino.', which roads ns fol lows: "This commission shnll have full power to select such plans and specifications us they may deem for the liest Interest if i the city of Burlington, nnd to expend 011 plans nnd in the erection of said build ing, not to exceed the sum of $.W.0c), which has been given to the city of Bur lington by Andiew Carnegie for said pur pose." It will therefore lie necessary for your honorable body, before nny funds can be provided for the finishing nt the library, to reroii'liler tills resolution, as It re stricts the amount to be used for the erection of the library to $r,0Oo. An chairman of th library committee, T feel It my dut to Inform you ns to tho coneluslors reached by the committee In nrrlvlng at the sum of $ic,fi0. as neces siry for the completion of the library. According to the contract with Mr. Paige, tertnln thlnr.s and noted ns exceptions nre to be furnished under a separate con tract, by the owner, which Is the city of Burlington. They are ns follows, and repress nt tho following sums, ns esti mated by the committee: Heating Klcct ileal furnishings, llardwnre One stack flooring $ 2,7WO W.i'U 2.T0.IW r..ojo(io 711010 Strengthening walls, l.ii'iOlh) Fuel iluilng construction "ruo Architect's Toes 2..TO.0.1 Furniture l.OiWO Grading 1,2'0.( 'A.

Wilcox claimed it would be s.ime yoirs before wo would need all of the stack room as originally estimated. There is one other matter I wish to call your attention to, the furnishing of water tor our new poor larm. I would recommend that city water be furnished by extending the water pipes along North avenue. As there Is quite a question ns to the cost ard also the quality of water obtained hv sinking a well, and It Is quite probable that a water pipe will be laid nlrng North avonuo In tho near future, on account of the many new buildings being erected In that section of the city. Another reason Is Noith nvenuo being one ot our best pleasure drives, wo see the need of water not only for the pur pose of laving the dust, but also In pre serving th" roadbed something that would be very much appreciated by the travelling public. For these reasons I would recommend to your honorable body, that ou serious ly consider the advisability of laying a water pipe along North avenue, ns the most economical means of solving tin wnter question. Gentlemen, In view of thoso facts, 'is shown, I think It Is my duty to rembi I you, ns sort nuts of the people, we should prneti"e the utmost iconomv consistent with the public good, and would ask your Globes.

Regular college exercises for the yenr 'flVOt were 'opened yesterday morning with religious services In tho chapel, fol lowed by enrollment of students In their respective classes from nine until twolvn o'clock. President Buckham, who led tho religious exercises, In addressing the stu dents In closing snltl In part: I think wo ran congratulate ourselves, enn be thank ful tihat tho auspices under which we come together this yenr nre so favorable. One cannot help hut compare them with list yenr. No such tragedy confronts us. Wo lose some good men from our faculty und ronlly we cannot but deplore their loss, such men ns Profs. Torrey, Penman, Dr. I'ntnn and Prof Butterlleld, whom wc will miss for n year Wo will not forget either our ffflrlent nnd helpful friend, Mr, Dotcn, and tho younger In structors who have served so fnlthrully. Now a question comos aa a very probablo one, why do wo havo to mnko so many changes, lose to many good men? The answer to this Is twofold: In tho first place a condition which Is not peculiar to tills Institution, poverty, tho inability of tho treasury to koop pace; and In tho second plnco that which Is another form of tho same answer, that men who aro In Biibordlnato positions aro candidates for higher positions In other Institutions and are entitled to such positions. Thus tho reason why we have lost good men Is because tho University of Vermont is n good placo to go from. 80 though wo aro sorry for our loss wo nro glad for thorn. Now wo havo filled their places by as good men as wo could find and thoy demand your respect nnd good will. I am sorry to say that we have not yet filled tho position of mllltnry instructor, but we nro corresponding with one high ly recommended by Captain Baltoy, Tho thought which Is uppermost, or ought to bo, Is of courso tho centennial year. This year means you think a great deal to the faculty and nlumnl, but I think It ought to mean a great deal to you. Ambassador Choate calls attention to tho fact that nt tho beginning of tho last century thero wero but 20 universi ties and colleges, now thero nro between too and too. The University of Vermont wns ono of tho 20 and If I recollect right ly wns the 11th In the order of organiza tion. Now it Is a groat honor to bo a member of such an Institution nnd we aro going to show tho world that wo aro worthy of their respect. And ns we are thinking of these things It comes homo to us that, while the State and tho United States havo done much and wo have had many generous alumni yet the thing we prize Is tho men wo havo put forth. It Is surprising how many Voimont men have done tho world great servlco. In tho matter of funds you too have your part. Suppose, ns probably, wo make our appeal to n man of largo menns and show him that hero Is a chanco for him. That a mnn, If ho Is a man, will find nnd what sort of nn Institution this Is; he will send somo ono to seo If tho funds nre wisely and carefully Invested, what kind of a college It is with regard to students, Instructions, Its tone. If he finds that there Is good ordor, local pride, true college spirit, that Is where a man would like to put his money. There nre two classes which I want to congratulate to-dny; first tho senior class, the class which graduates this year, and the other tho freshman class, tho class which enters In the centennial yenr. Within 1 short tlmo there hns come hero a now phase of college life, the fra ternity chapter house. 1 don't remember ns a faculty thnt wo havo taken nny ac tion on the subject but as nn Individual I nm glad to see the chapter houses come. I went carefully Into tho question some voirs ago, consulted faculty, students, nnd townspeople, and havo found it an excellent plnn where In forco because tho occupation of a chapter house in tho midst of a community tnkes away from the impression that n secret society cover3 up something and that a chapter house well conducted brings some of tho bene fits of homo life nnd does away with some of the efforts of barrack life in the dormitory and of course you get In that way the advantages ot strictly college life. There aro two objections, however, first tho danger ot making fraternity life too expensive nnd ono way to avoid this dllfoiilty Is to put the expense on the nlumnl anil It Is good to have the alumni Interested. The other is the tendency of the fraternity life to exclusivencss; to as sociate with men of one fraternity. This vould tend to crento fraternity hostility, jealousy nnd political combinations. True college spirit includes not only my friends and brethren but the whole col logo community. In closing President Buckhnm said: I don't see why, with God's blessing and help nnd with tho kindly spirit Wwcen faculty and students, we cannot look for ward to a year Of unrivalled prosperity.
