Tie general Improvements cf the city hive been very encouraging. Several large bus iness buildings have teen erected ana I un derstand that others are contemplated, tev eial new additions have been added to the city and a great many buildings have b;on erected for noiue. Our relation with our Muter citiis of Liavenport and Mollne have been cordial and pleasant and we have found the authorities and citizens of both cities ready at all tint lo Join Hack Island in ev erything that pertains to our common inter erts. Situated as we are iu the cnter cf a gioup of thr.e cities our interests are; and (uii not he otherwise, than common with our slsier cities.

Through a resolution of yonr honorable tody, our city assisted In the organization cf and Joined the League of American munici palities, which embrace nearly all if the cities In the L'nitcd States and Canada. The result cf this organisation was the establish ment of a bureau of information, whereby wo have tccejs to the information collected and are kept posted as to the cost of ligatisjg charges for water, ga?, street sweeping, pav ing, collecting of garbage and every other public utility from nearly all cf the cities of America. At the national convention held in Columbus, oi.lo, last October, the city of Kotk Lsland was honored by the appointment of its mayor as honorary vice president for the state of lllinoit. We have wiiiiln the past few months been thi recipient of a most laagnlflcient gilt, a pint of land comprising nearly forty acres. It Is siiuiited on the side3 and on the top of the hlufi between Fifteenth and Seven teenth streets and Twelfth and Eighteenth avenue, ll is plefjrc.-iue in its character ami commands a splendid view of the city and the Mississippi river. It Is presented to the cityl for a public park. For tliU magnificent gift the city ia Indebted to Capt. T. J. Itchit'.sou, Mr. Frederick Weyerhaeuser. Hon. C. II. Deere and Mr. Morris Kosenlield. and I am sure that these honorable gentlemen will always be held iu a grateful remembrance by an appreciative ptiMIc. In this connection I desire also to acknowledge the able and kind assistance retdered by Mr. S. S. Davis and Col. Henry Curtis of this city. FINANCE. We have collected from all sources aside frcni thj collection r.f special taxes and as sessments the sum of JlTO.StsLM and have paid out on the ok!i r of our honorable body the sum of ?IV,'ill.;:. the details of which you ill find in the nporti of the City Clerk. (In tept. 1. !.:;, the large indebtedness known as the six per cent funding bond debt of $17",i-o( became due. As you are aware, this bond isrue was made in the year Is", end was for the purpose of taking up or liquidating the largo floating Indi-biedness of this city. Provision had rot been made for the payment in whole or in part cf this is sue and we were forced under the circum stances to re-i.'sue or refund the same. A the general municipal eieetion in the spring of lsl'7, jour honorable body submitted to the voti rs of the city a proposition to is. no SU'O.fsO cf bend3 at an Interest of 4'j per cent per annum for the purpose of refunding the bond Issue of 1S77 and to liquidate an indebt edness of that had accrued. The proposition carried and in due course ot time we advertised for bids for the entire h-sue, M70,'i0 of the said bonds wvre. sold to the First National Hank of Chicago at a premium of $1:4.47 and the old issue of $170, 100 was taken up and aro now in the posses sion of the city. The Issue of lvfiV consisting of J17J WO at 4i per cent requires that $-''000 shall be paid in ten yesrs; $7i,000 In fifteen years and JMl.oon In twenty years from Sept. 1. IS7. The j:0,(ifl were mado in another Issue and sold to other parties. WATERWORKS. In pursuance of the recommendations of the Mayor, your honorable body decided to construct a reervolr and filtering plant upon the bluff. Having engaged as consulting en gineer. Mr. Jacob A. Harmon of l'coria. III., and upon the examinations of several plans drawn by him, and tiie hearing of the report of tho Waterworks Committee and Superin tendent of Waterworks, your honorable body decided to construct a plant to be composed of tv ; settling basins w 1th a capacity of ;.."cip, I.;) gallons each, three natural sand fii;er:i with a capacity of filtration of 3, ntw.u'Wi gallons In twenty-four hours, and a dimhle reservoir with a storage capacity of 6.i'.c.i0 gallons. It is believed by your com mittee that this plant will give to the city a pure ar.d wholesome waier. It cimpri?es the scdmitntation. the aeration, filtration and the storage of water. Plans and specifications were proposed, bids for the excavation, rubble work and the ce ment were asked for, and on the liith day of April were received and opened, but arc now held in abeyance. An independent pro posal was made by the O. H. Jewel Filter I'n. of Chicago, to substitute for the natural sand filter, a system of mechanical filtratlen and the waterworks committee have deter mined before committing the city to any sys tem of filt rta ion to first make an experi mental test of m small sand filter In order to ascertain the efficiency as well as the pro portional capacity of the same. It is hoped thnl the saving effected by either plan, which removes the filtration of the water to the reservoir site, if capitalized will pay an Interest of S per cent upon an Investment 1 sulneclnt to construct the proposed plant. I The cliy hss contracted for the purchase of sufficient lai.d between Twenty-second and Twenty-fourth streets and Twelfth and Seven Iteenth avenue to accommodate all of the pro posed Improvement. A portion of the excavation was done last ; fall by day labor In order to afford work to ; many of our citizens. About one mile of the lfi-lneh main leading from (he pumping , station to the reservoir site has been laid. I The extension of water mains during the last year has been quite general and the In- crease of water consumers very satisfactory. I STREETS. I We have during the past year raved Seventh avenue from Twelfth to Seven teenth street and Seventh avenue from Twenty-third to Thirtieth street. Also First avenue from Sixteenth to Twentieth street. I By way of an cxlerimcnt and at the sollcl c tatlon of some rf the propertyflolders, we paved Ninth and Tenth streets between Sec ond and Third avenue with maeadem. con sisting cf tweWe inches of broken rock covered with four inches of crushed gravel from Jollet. To some this kind of pavement has not seemed satisfactory, but with my knowledge of its use In Jolirt and the way It appears this spring 1 believe It will make a good pavement. We have In contempla tion the paving rlth brick of Twenty-sixth street from Fifth to Seventh avenues and Thirtieth street from Seventh avenue to the south city limits. Ordlnancs have also been passed for the improvement of Twenty-first Twenty-second and forty-fourth streets. I would recommend that as ou principal Improvement this year will be the comple tion of the reservoir and the purification of the city's water supply, which will require considerable outlay of money that we go quite slow on the paving, i We are about to inaugurate a new system of I ' ' Iinenmali'.iu n'ltr is .uu-iute a 10 oc airlult;:y psrmk"M.aii1 a sirttns; hinrctnrm'.Mins: np the weac nddoilltauM. it cure acute or r:.u u. : r rtieirr.i lmm in nvm e:ie lo ft e d jys.

It is stwolntetv fr street cleaning, by dividing the paved por tion ot the city into districts and requiring one nan to attend to a certain number of niocgs. In the matter of sidewalks we have been very active In the last year. We have caused to be constructed in that time something over six miles of sidewalks. As the greater portion oi tne city tn now well provided I would recommend that we continue in this line and complete thia work. FIRE DEPARTMENT. During the last year the conflagrations have been very light. The absence of large fires have in a great measure been due tovigilance ana promptness ot ournre department. Iiy virtue of a resolution passed by your hon orable body and on the advice ot Chief Swenle of Chicago, I employed an expert fireman, a Mr. Greene, cx-assistant chief of the Chicago fire department, to teach onr de partment the art of fighting fires. The re sult of this instruction is very apparent, and we row have as efficient a department, con sidering the number of men employed, as anv city in the state. I desire to make especial acknowledgement of the manner In which Chief Collier has handled the department. TOLICE. Tho police department has been ablv cared by chief I'ender new uniforms have lately been purchased, and the appearance and con duet of the officers have been the mens of cur receiving many compliments. HEALTH. The genern! henhb of our ciir has been good. We have had no epidemic to con tend with. Much credit la due to the He Commissioner, Or. Comegys for the interest ne cas taken in this department. Through his recommendations we have determined to make some radical changes in this depart ment. We have lately purchased three .im proved garbage wagons and horses and will collect the garbage under a new system. Also, by means of an ordinance passed by your honorable body we have caused or will cause all householders to provide a covered. water tight metallic can as a garbage recep tacle, thus materially assisting the garbage collector and lessening the probability of disease and an epidemic. I would recom mend that your honorable body pass an or dinance requiring property holders to pro vide a box or re-ceptale to hold their rub bish and In this we will be able to keen the alleys clean. KAILROAD AND LEVEE IMPROVEMENT The long mooted question of the disposition of the several railroad ordinances, which have occupied the attention of your honor able body for so long a time has I believe been permanently settled, and I feel that WT' eon be exceedingly thankful that wo will not nave It to contend with this year. 1 ue ordinances passed recently seem to give geneial satisfaction and I trust will prove a soiutir.n of this vexed problem. We have received concessions from most of the railroad companies, to assist us in the levee improvement and I would recommend that we make an early start in this much neded improvement. We have reason tn xpect that two or three additional railroads will seek entrance to our city in the near future. STORM DRAIN. Th3 unfortunate condition nf the Etorm drain which was constructed some eighteen mnntns ago nas given your honorable body considerable annoyance. The hlstorv of this improvement is familiar to you all. At the request of the contractor and per a reso lution of the t otineil, I appointed a BR"eial committee cf three tn act wiih the Mayor in making a thorough investlgatir.n of the condition of said drain and to establish its actual worth to the city. The Investigation is progressing as fant as possible and In due time the committee will make a report as to its nnuings. In conclusion, eentlemcn. T desire tn Im press upon you. that In addition to the reeom mendatlons made of the minor Improvem-nis, that our undivided attention and energv should be directed to the completion of the Improvement of the water supply and the im provement of tho leve. The purification of the water appeals to nil and makes every In habitant of cur city and every stranger with in onr gates a oenenciary and confers a blessing upon all of our people. I desire to return mv thanks to the retiring aldermen and trust that their lines may fail In pleasant places. THOS. J. MEDILL, JR., Mayor. Other Notes.
