Sec 12, of chapter 14 of the com
.piled statatesof Nebraska, relating to
cities of the second class provides, that
'the mayor shall from time to time
communicate to the city council such
information and recommend Buch
measures as in his opinion may tend to
the improvement and -general prosper
ity of the-city. Incompliance there
with reports of the various departments
have been prepared and placed in your
hands foHnspection and consideration
to which arc here briefly appended such
suggestions and recommendations as
have seemed to me proper.
A full report of the financial condi
tion of the city has been placed before
the-council by the treasurer, It is
only necessary for me here to state that
the general expenses of the city have
fallen very much below the estimate,
made therefor and the balance re
maining in the general fund has been
used'forthe extension of the system of
The fixtures for water supply are
barely completed to the extent of the
means furnished for that purpose and
it is too soon to determine as to their
adequacy. There is every reason
however to believe that in both quality
and quantity the supply will prove
enubintly satisfactory, both for fire
protection and domestic purposes. All
indebtedness for every portion of the
system and foi all labor performed,
thereon has been fully paid ercecptinir
a small balance on the stani pipe which
has bee 1 held in the treasury on ac
count of improper workmanship in it

have been strained to the uttenmxt
the council and empowered to enforce an
improved hygienic condition of the city
and its surroundings.
Fire limits shonld be established ob the
principal streets within which the erec
tion of wooden buildings should be pro
hibited. I trust it is not necessary for me to
state that' these recommendations are not
tendered with any assumption of snper-
At the regular meeting last night of
ior wisdoni.JjjThey are simply the results
of a year of carefuland unprejudiced
observation. No man is fitted to fill any
executive or legislative office in your city
who cannot see at the end of his term
many things which should be accomplish
ed for the', gcomfort, :happiness and
well being of its citizens. The present
council have had crowded upon them a
vast amount of work which could not be
delayed and ', thus some of the matters
above recommended have necessarily re
mained unconsidered. The succeeding
administration will doubtlcs be able to
devote more time to the consideration of
the general affairs of the city.
I take this opportunity to tender to
each member of the council and to all the
city officers my heartfelt thanks for many
kindnesses received at their hands. In
the light of the present I am conscious of
many errors in the year which has past.
Many things have been done and many
things permitted which might have been
more wisely ordered. In all thing and
at all times however I have relied upon
your honest determination to act for the
future interests of the city and for the
! greatest irood of the atrreatest number.
On no occasion has there been caue to
regrot this confidence. The future will
show to the inhabitants of this city that
your work of the past year i the most
important part of its history. Tim men
who unflinchingly bore criticism4 and
n .jvoache? not always just and reasonable
and went patiently and manfully forward
ttiefire department at their hall the
bids which hadjbeen received for a
1200 pound firebell and fixtures were
opened and submitted to'the depart
ment after going over all business rel
ative to the purchasing of a bell it
was agreed by the department to place
the matter within the hands of the
board of trustees with orders to pro
ceed at once and procure a bell, so the
city will at an early date have a chance
to listen to a first class fire bell.
Please bear in mind, that
the water commissioner is
alone authorized to make
wat er service contracts. Go di
rect to headquarters if you wish
to save trouble and set 5 our work
done right. I will guarantee to do
first class work and at fair prices.

An Enslislunai WIio Has Worn One for
Fully six Yean,.
A cise in which the operation of tracheot
omy proved strife iugly successful has just
.co-no under our notice, says the J'all Jln'.l
Gazette. It is that of a mau, formerly a sol
dier, who had thn incision into the wind
21pc made sis yej-rs ago, ami who wears
the tracheotomy tube at the present mo
ment, lie was a private in the ltoval En
gineers, and took p-irt in the Egyptian cam
paign of 11. being present at fel-cl-Kcbir.
i line m kgjirt he drank some bad water,
and this induced a blood poisoning, which,
ultimately took the form of deep-seated ab
scesses in the neck. lie returned from
Egypt, arriving in this country some time
in October, l.', and at once became a pa
tient, at tlnl!nvnl -Uititnri, Tfns..;.ni o...u
amptcn. The man describes the operation
as being only a little painful. The previous
difficulty in breathing had been so great
that if the incision into the windpipe- had
caused much pain that pain was over
whelmed by the great relief which followed
the operation. He remained in the hosni-
talfoi-sonic months, but finally lcftnuito
Ho linds but little discomfort or incon
venience ia wearing the tracheotomy tube.
Ho can not speak without rirst putting Ins
finder to his neck to close the oplicc of the
tube. The reason for this is obvious. Voice
is caused by the. vibration of the vocal
chords in the larynx, and to set them vibra
ting a current of air from the lungs is re
quired. The incision of tracheotomy being
made in the windpipe below the larvnx,
enough air to vibrate the vocal chords can
not no obtained until the orifice is closed.
