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
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
