The Work of tbe Year.
The annual report of President (i
M. Looslev summarizin'T the work of
the association during the past year
ami read in seven of the city churches
during the morning, stated that the
canvass for funds had extended from
the extreme lower to the extreme up
per end of the city ami from the riv
cr to the bluffs. " Over bi person
have ;i en in luiildinj; pledges and
for current expenses, -', Out). "It
mav be doubted whether any city of
our" size in the west," says the report,
"lias in the same period r"iven as much
to the Voting Men's Christian Asso
ciation." It is. here, truly a repre
sentative institution; and in present
in IT this annual summary of our do
ings we feel very real and earnest
rratitude for the hearty backing
moral and linaneial which has been
Ijiven us. The contracts for com
pleting; have been awarded, anil the
work is under ood headway. This
lias made it necessary for us to rive
up much of the little space we had
for use. so that really we have had
little more than headquarters at the
building since December :.'.". Still,
for Soo days you have enabled this
association to keep open, warm.liixht,
and make comfortable rooms win-re
any decent man could feel himself at
home. These rooms have been sup
plied with -'." of the best papers and
maira.ines published. Writing ma
terials have been at the disposal of
anoiie who wanted to use them. A

T:i; V'iitti' pjisltlon to Mayor MedUt's
Because Mayor Medili did not fol
low the example of his predecessors
in ouk-e an. I take the entire council
into :iis conlidence in determining
upon his appointments, the Union is
taking him severely to task and -rives
itself over to contemptible little in
nuendo about what the republican
ildcrmen may do in the premises if
tliey are so disposed.
Why Mr. Medili should feel him-
sell oouim to aoneie to hbltih-ih ...
this matter is more than the Awn s
is prepared to say. There is
no rule that uemantis irn: aoop-
tion on his part of the customs
of any of his predecessors in ot-
lice. When Mr. Medili called about
him the democratic aldermen as an
advisory board, he did not regard it
as a meeting of the council, nor does
he look upon his failure to invite the
republican aldermen a snub of such
aldermen. Having been elected
as a democrat, Mr. Medili believes a
democratic administration is expect
ed of him. In seeking to surround
himself with a cabinet composed of
representative members of his party,
ami also in the proper distribution of
party patronage also to serve under
-i i n
i h !i v.
on hand, sup;
of :;.) volume'
:in administration of which he is to
act as the responsible head, people
of reason would hardly expect him to
confer with republicans as tuwlio
were the most deserving democrats.
In making Ids selections the mayor
elect naturally looked for counsel to
those who were in sympathy witli
liim nolit ii-.illv and who had been
elected aldermen upon the strength
of their affiliation with the same par
ty. Hence the conference to which
the republican aldermen and the
Union take so much exception.
TryliiK to Create a Wrong Impression.
It is hardly to be expected that
any fair minded alderman will be in
llueneed by the w rong impression the
Union seeks to create, and the Attars
feels safe in saying that the republi
can as well as "the democratic alder
men will find the new mayor uni-forniK-
f.-iir and courteous in all his
dealing with them, and that nothing :
will be gained by forcing an issue
with liiin at the outset of his administration.
