Mayor Jennings before the adjournment
of the old council mad his annual message,
which was in part aa follows:
Mayor Jennings' Farewell.
Gentlemen of the Council: The wise gov
ernment of rapidly growing cities, where
large private Interests and corporate wealth
often conflict with public Interests, Is the
problem of today, and will remain the
problem of the future. In the mayor's an
nual message to the council at the begin
ning of our term of office I discussed only
questions which would, in my Judgment,
demand your careful consideration, as repre
sentatives of the people. One of the first
matters to which I Invited your attention
at that time was our good financial condi
tion. A plan for refunding about $60,000 of
city bonds, bearing 6 per cent Interest, with
H per cent bonds, I regret to say, has so
far failed, owing to our delay in acting
upon the nrooosltlon at the time It ws
made. These bonds are virtually the orfly
remaining 6 per cent obligations of the city
and It would have been good financiering
'of mililln f mnrnvementn.
hen I assumed the responsibility of
mayor in lists the net Indebtedness of the
city was $&97,2t)9.81, but this amount did
not Include a large amount of accrued in
terest upon outstanding warrants. It is
Impossible to obtain a correct statement
of the amount of such Interest at that time;
but when, In the spring of 19u0. outstand
ing warrants were funded, $35,694.74 of this
Interest was not covered by the bond Issue
and was paid out of the city's revenues,
as an expense. In 1900, at the commence
ment of the present term, our net indebten
ness was $42,095.48, a reduction of 1169.114.33
In two years, to which should be added the
V3B.6m.74 Interest paid. ' March 1. 1902, we
had a net Indebtedness of $.131,218.75.
Street Improvements, a matter of uni
versal Importance to all our cltlsens, was
the second topic referred to in my discus
sion of the city's condition and require
ments when we assumed control of Its
affairs. In ordering paving the first year
vitrified brick was selected and proved
satisfactory. The second year' a difference
of opinion arose as to the material to be
used on certain streets, and It was argued
by some of you that asphalt was prefer
able to brick. After a number of heated
discussions and advertisements for bids,
brick waa finally selected, contracts were
awarded and the work progressed satis
factorily, except for -delays due to lack of
material. Although the contracts are not
yet all completed, we have laid 92.57$ 07
yards of paving, giving very substantial
relief from the deplorable conditions which
Red met Price for Lighting;.
On the subject of gas and electric light
ing, I only wish to say that during our
term of office we hav brought about a
substantial reduction In prices of gaa and
electricity to private consumers, aa well
as the city.
The question of public health baa proven
one of unusual Importance, and has given
more cause for anxiety during the last year
than was anticipated. The general condi
tion of the city has ' been, and still re
mains, excellent; and. although we have
hud many cases of contagious disease, few
deaths have resulted.
The outbreak of smallpox in the winter
of ISoO, continuing through tho winter,
spring and part of the summer, and ap
pearing again In November, 1901. found us
each time sadly unprepared In respect to
hospital provision for the isolation and
care of those so affected. The present
municipal hospital Is unsulted and Insuffi
cient for our present requirements. I be
lieve a suitable ana anequate isolation
J;' would go to It voluhtV;ilyT rather
tnan expose OI ners xo iiif nutans", wfiuo
largely dccri aso the expense to the county,
do away with the horror of a pesthouse
and go far lo obviate concealment and
consciiuent scattering of tho disease.
Folio ins the reading of Mayor Jennings'
message the old council went- out of ex
istence and tbe newly elected aldermen
took their svjts. Mayor Morgan was in
troduced by Mr. Jennings, with the remarks
that Mr. Morgan took hold ot the adminis
tration under peculiarly favorable condi
tions, as not only was tbe council In har
mony, but the finances of tbe city were in
a better condition than they had been tor
many years. Mayor Morgan on assuming
his seat s greeted with .applause from a
' lobby that packed the council chamber
! anteroom and hallway to suffocation. Ills
I opening address to the council was brief.
I He said: -x
Mayor Morgan's Inaugural.
I Ti the Memtw-rs of the City Council
l Gentlt men: Having been, chosen by the
1 yuffragi' of our feilow cltlsens to serve as
' your presiding oflicer for the rnsulng two
, years. I fully realise the responsibilities
and perplexities which will rest unon roe
I upon assuming the office. I should enter
upon ditties with some hesitation
I were I' not convinced that I shall reoeive
your kind assistance and co-opvration.
Although we are in the mubvrof financial
riroHperltv, let us exercise the utmost cars
n re'ard to our xpenditures and guard
agutnitt extravagant Impulses which fre
quently follow enforced economy. We as
a city are enjovlng great activity In real
estate ctrclts. New buildings are going UP
on every una i am is u era o( goo
itxllng. of prosperity and ot new entr -
prises. All this should be encouraged. I
will make no recommendation at this time,
preferring to first become thoroughly fa
miliar with each department. The efficiency
of our fire deonrtment Is a source of prtdn
to all our people and this high standard of
excellence should be maintained. Strict
economy la desirable In every department,
but economy which cripples effectiveness
should not here obtain. It will be my aim
to bring the police department up to this
high standard of proficiency. Our cltlsens
generally should feel interested in the city's
welfare and thev are requested to call and
report any matters which they may think
require attention. Their co-operation Is
First Baalneaa Transacted.
The first business transacted by the new
council wag the approving of the following
bonds: F. T. True, treasurer, $100,000; F.
L. Evans, auditor, $5,000; S. B. Snyder,
solicitor, $J,000; 8. L Etnyre, engineer,
$5,000; W. Hlggeson, welghmaster. $500; A.
C. Graham, park commissioner, $5,000.

wss approved by the outgoing council.
