rim Itctliing Mayor.
Dr. E. V. Hoover, who rotlres
from the Mayorship of RoBebuig to
night, was born In 1873. At the age
of twenty-eight years, he was first
elected Mayjr of RoBebuig, and was
thereafter ru-elocted for two succes
sive terms, making a period of olght
years, that Id has served the city as
Its Chief Magistrate Dr. Hoover,
while unending to his duties as a
physician, besides serving In many
other public capacities, has found
lime to pay a great deal of attention
o the needs of the city.
Upon Ills entry into olllco, the clly
was deeply In debt; the payment of
warrantB was more than two years
behind nnd tho warrants wero selling
at a discount and even I hen It was
difficult to Bell them. By an econ
omical administration or the City's
affairs, the di hi has been reduced to
a minimum: tho CUy has been placed
on a paying basin, and tho city war
rants now sell at a premium. 1" one
Instance tho Mayor saved the clly
three thoiiHind dollars, by hoUllllg
out ngnlnst tho bill of the old Water
& Light Company.
M'.my public improvements hnvo
been mado in the clly during the
doctor's term of c fllce, chiefly among
them, being tho paving of Rose
burg's prlnclial IiukIuchs streets.
It was largely through IiIb efforts
that the paving or the streets wiib
taken up and carried to a sucessrul (
end, und now upon the eve ttl his
retirement from ofhco sees the princi
pal streets paved with a good und
durable pavement which does a cred
it to tho cil'.
It can bo truthfully said, that dur
ing Dr. Hnover'i, term or office there
has never bo-jn uny complaint of mis
management or the financial affaire
. of tho clly, hut on the contrary, the
clly has enjoyed one of tho cleanest
nnd most, businesslike administra
tions In its history.
Dr. Hoover hns caked the council
to. have the hooks or tho city export
ed so as to Bhow I he financial condi
tion or tho city Bluco his Induction
Into office.
Upon Dr. Hoover's retirement rrom
office, the clly loses a faltUul and
efficiont servant, and new Mayor
of Roteburg is to he congratulated
on finding Iho affairs of the clly In
such good condition upon his entry
Into office.

During his Incumbency Mr. Mlcelli
