PROMOTION James Johnson U. S- Consul at Algiers Prefers Visits From His Daughters to a Place in China. BIC SACRIFICE OF SALARY Comfort Provided for the N, Q., N. J. at the Inaugura tion—Interstate Com merce Caucus, WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 1905.— There is an interesting story in connec tion with the nomination of James John ston United States Consul at Algiers, Algeria. Some years ago it was under stood that Mr. .Johnston was to be the consul-general at Hankow, China, a po sition which pifvs more than three thou sand dollars a year. Mr. Johnston is in the neighborhood of seventy years of age. and has two daughters who like to visit him in the summer season. He was therefore, averse to going to China, if it could be avoided. After some corre spondence and inquiry among the men holding consular positions he arranged with William Martin, of New York, to make a transfer with him. Mr. Martin wil go to China, a mi' Air, Johnston will go to Algiers, and by doing so lie will make a considerable financial sacrifice, as the salary of the position he will fake amounts to about $1,800. Mr. .Tohustou was at one time sheriff of Passaic County, and has been in the consular service a number of years. Obadiali E. Davis is now postmaster at Red Bank, and at the same time town commissioner. He was confirmed by the Senate as postmaster, and his commission will bo forwarded him short ly by the Postoffice department. His term as commissioner of Bed Bank ex pires in April, but inasmuch as lie can not hold an elective office and be post master, he has decided! to resign. There is a possibility that William T. Corlies, the present- postmaster, wlio faulted an other term, may hold the office, with the consent of the Postoffice department, until the term of Air. Davis as commis sioner expires. In the daily bulletin showing changes in the postal service, issued by the Post office department, it is stated the post master at Titusville will he permitted' to dispatch the mat) twenty minutes in ad vance of schedule time, provided no eou nect:ons are broken and no complaints are made. Representative Howell has received' a request from the Postoffice .department to recommend a person to act ns post master at I.avellette. Ocean County, who will keep the office open the entire year. At present the postmaster keeps, the office open only about three mouths in the summer season, and in the winter thtf forty-odd residents are obliged to travel a mile and a half over a poor road to Ortlcy to get their maiL Jif. Howell lias niken u'l) the matter with the Ocean County people. Major James E. Bell, of the District of Columbia .National Guards, has re nno.ttid General flmrse II.

The Committee of the Whole presented the annual report for the year ending Nov. 30, 190-1. Commissioner Nolan moved “ that the report be received and spread ia full upon the minutes, and that copies of the same be transmitted to His Honor the Mayor, the Honorable Board of Aldermen and the Board of Finance, and that 500 copies be printed for general distribution.” Carried. .1 t'lMM V i L \ . 1 feVOIIl HO! 1. To the Honorable, the Mayor and Boards of Aldermen and Finance:— Gentlemen—In accordance with Sec tion 20. Chapter 134 of the Laws of 1801, we herewith submit a statement of the condition of the Public Works and properties of the city under the gov ernment, control and management of this Board, together with a record of our receipts and disbursements for the fiscal year ending November 30. 1004. Although no particularly large works have been completed during the year we are able to record a beginning on certain reconstructions which arc thus referred to because a little legal fiction so dominates 'them and makes possible the doing of the work without recourse to assessment therefor on the property' benefited. Work of this character we oftentimes find necessary and it serves to accentuate again and again the wis dom of subjecting every petition for new and assessable sewer improvements to a most rigid examination to the end that sewers so petitioned for will compre hend ASdequate drainage facilities not for present needs only, lint under ordi nary circumstances for all time. It is a human weakness to desire that an im provement which must be paid for di rectly shall cost .as little as possible, and we recall one particular instance of a sewer built by the city on petition and hence assessed on property benefited, which wiy: hardly completed before the beneficiaries complained of its inade quacy and successfully demanded its partial reconstruction, then its partial paralleling and finally its appreciable extension, and all this in a period not exceeding ten years. The first work com prehended an inadequate sewer that cost of which, though assessed. was comparatively small, and the last three pieces of work which were done by the city without as-sess tt produced finally a sewer not quite so good as that which should have been petitioned for originally and paid for by the property benefit ted. While the case afore referred to is an exceptional one there are many others, involving the same principle, which from time to time are brought to our notice. Reconstruction sewer work which in cludes enlarging, extending paralleling and relieving is hereinafter itemized as also street reconstruction, reference to which will indicate a very satisfactory showing. In assessable street and sewer work (new) the records will indicate that a very fair average lias been maintained for the year although nothing of a very striking character is shown. As a*wliole, it has been a year of ad vance, rather than of retrogression, and with the possible elimination of the water account, we could refer to it as a year of very satisfactory municipal prosperity. We trust that wo may, and believe that we will without temporization in the storv of the year to come, be able to record the elimination from every branch of the service of every unsatisfactory condition and tile firm establishment on a sound foundation and for all time, of those tilings which unhampered and unretanl ed, make for both physical and financial progress.
