The old set of city olHcinls lmve been displaced by the now. Recorder A. 12. Dunsmore nnd Councilman R. Graden arc the only ones retained from the for mer administration. In pass ins from the old to the new, it might be well to cast a glance backward at the work and per sonnel of the retiring adminis tration. The officials as a whole have conducted a succccssf ul ad ministration. Much good work has been accomplished and ad vancement made. Of the good work accomplished, while some may differ with us, yet we be lieve the best act consummated was that of securing the im menso plant of the Western Cooperage Co. for St. Johns. It required the expense of a road way to the water front from VVil lamctte boulevard, yet personal ly. we would favor the expendi ture of a like amount every year to insure as important Indus triea. Another good act was furnishing the unemployed with labor at wood cutting during the past winter. A number of streets have been improved, arc lights and (ire hydrants added. and streets kept in good order. Of course there has been the us ual complaint bv those ever will ing to find fault about the city council. This is also true of any city council that ever existed and will bo so long aH the world shall last. It is caused principally be cause people fail to realize that all councils must bo guided by their charters and must consider both sides of every proposition. But it would bo u most difficult thing for nny man to point out any act of the late council that was detrimental to the city's in terest. One of its very best nets was the purchase of tho II ro truck and placing paid llrcmcn in con troi. Dr. A. W. Vincent has made one of the best mayors that any city over possessed, uronri in his views, tactful, wide-awake. resourceful, conservative, con scientious, witty and progrcs sivc, with a fine knowledge of parliamentary law. he has made an ideal presiding officer, and he can well feel proud of tho splen did record no lias made. A.R. Dunsmore. Recorder, has executed tho duties of recorder nnd police judge with entire sat infliction to all. Courteous and obliging at all times, ever will ing to explain, accurato and efll cient in his. clerical work, a pleasant and congon in gent o man, tho people of St. Johns can congratulate themselves upon retaining Albert 15. Dunsmore in this capacity. Thud. T. Parker has mndo a conscientious and painstaking city attorney, tie is a man wel versed in mim e tin aw. con sorvntive, faithful and reliable, easy to approach, genial and ac commodating, and probably has as ninny friends in St. Johns as any man. He can look back tin on his record as city attorney wmi n great tieni 01 pride. Frank A. Rico served tho citv in a most faultless manner as city treasurer. His ability, ac curacy and carefulness is a mat ter of common knowledge, and everything ho does is done well. No man could llll the officii in a moro cnpnblo and satiafactorv manner. To know him is to like him, and his friends are lemon. Tho councilmen as a whole tried to do their duty and servo tho peoplo well, nnd wo main tain that they havo been success ful. They may have mndo somo mistakes, but if so, they were of minor importance and did not prove detrimental to tho city's interests. Thoy have worked to gether practical y in hnrmonv. and having met with them ev ery session throughout tho term. wo can attest to the fact that in our judgment at least, thoy havo serveu liiuiiiiiny anil well, and can feel well satisfied with the record they havo made. Of tho new sot of officials. most of them aro familiar faces in tho council chamber, having served in ono capacity or other previously. More concerning inem win no utKen up later, out the peoplo may rest assured that the city's welfare will bo well looked after while its destiny is in ineir nanus, Captured Weekly Prize Solon Hugbeo again won the weekly prize in the Lauthers' World Fair Contest.
