NEW MAYOR DELIVERS MESSAGE

and Contract ( Insert for Additional

The first meeting of the newly duct

U. D. Woodworth and P. M. II all
After the reading of the minutes ol
the previous meeting had heon ap
proved Mayor Blowers muiI he hud
some views iu regard to the govern
ment of tbe city that he would like to
call to the attention of council ami
that be had embodied thuniju a mes
sage which is as follows:
To the city council ot the citv ol
Gentlemen : Upon assuming the
duties of the position ot umyor 1
deem it proper to make to yimr hon
orable body a statement ot my views
with some recommendations, on
matters appertaining to the welfare ot
1 earnestly believe that lung are
mad" to be observed aud that under
ideal conditions it would uot be uec-
esary to enforce them, but unfortun
ately in ail continuities there are a
tew persons who act as tuough lav.
was something to be despised ami
evaded. 1 am pleased to think tuat
there ate few suob iu our city. 1 l;e
lieve that the standard of citi.unciiii
in this community is high, much
shove tbe avereage, and that a very
large majority ot our oltizeus conform
cheerfully to the requirements of the
laws, this being true it is only just
tbat those who do uot do likewise
should be compelled to do so. 1 pur
pose while mayor of this city to in
sist on observauce of ordinances 1
all, no good citizens can be nKi iuvod
It our laws are Impartially enforced
aud it ia immaterial to me whether
others are pleased or displeased, the
chronic law breakor is not iu my
opinion eutitled to much considera
tion or sympathy.
Borne mouths since upon the reu-
ommeudatiion of the council the
bouses of tbe oity were numbered,
but it seems to roe that the most im
portant part of that work was over
looked - 1 reoouxneuil thut street
signs, giving tbe names of the streets
and avenues, be placed on corners
throughout the city, thus completing
the work in a practical way.
Believing that tbe appearauco of
our streets has cousiderallu influence
in producing a favorable or unfavora
ble impression of us as a people ou
visitors from abroad, 1 hope tlut Hit
praotice of cutting limbs from tre s
aud allowing them to remain in the
streets outii removed by tho i,)mv pro
cesses of cature aud the piohuhly
thoughtless habit of some of our citi
zens ot dumping refune and gorliHge
on tbe stteets back of their residences
but in front of their neighbors will
uo longer be tolerated. It is tbo duty
and it should be the plotiHtiro of all
good citizens to try iu every reasona
ble way to improve the appearance ol
this place for which natuio has doue
so much. This city, like luurt other,
depends largely upon the turmiiii
community contiguous for cxistrnoo.
it is tberetore not only our tltity lint
sound public policy to keep our
streets in as good condition as pos
silile paricularly tho street luadiutgiu-
to our oity.
Believing tbat the different sections
of tbe oity are entitled to representa
tion on this boaid aud thnt there it
ousideral'lo dissatisfaction w th the
present method of electing aldermen,
I recommend that the city be uivided
into three wards. I think that such
action would be ooudticlve to hanno
ny and therefore to be 'desired, as has
been well laid "a houte divided
against itself cannot stand. " We want
no divided bouse but ou the contrary
solicit tbe support of all good citizens
lu tne upbuilding ot a' gieater and
more beautiful Hood Kiver.
'I he past year baa been one of pro
gress and prospelity aud our prede
cessors in oltlce -have maintained a
high standard for efficient work ; when
it was proposed to Install a sewer sys
tem it was thought by many that the
oity was too small to uuii irtako such
an , expensive work, hut ' t ur otticers
were fottunately nieu or staiunma a:id
decision and in spite ol nil obstacles
persisted and I believe that the truit
of their labors is now appreciated by
all, aud few would be willing to dis
peuse with a -tewer system, liut gou
tlemen tieie is still work to o
worthy of your best efforts, thedetid
eratum is a water supply of sufficient
volume aud purity to meet the needs
of a growing city of 2IH.K) inhabitants.
With rare foresight and business acu
men oui- predecessois secuied title
to a spring capable ot supplying a
oity of twice tbe size of this, only six
miles away, and I arnestly hope thut
the water , from, it will be piped
through our streets within a year
from this date. When it is remembei
ed tbat this enterprise will uot cot a
dollar but will pay for itself in from
10 to 15 years there should be no
hestiranoy in beginning the work and
pressing resolutely forward until it is
accomplished. I am iu favor of pur
chasing the present system provided
the owners will accept a reasonable
price tor it. 1 believe it would be
advisable to bny it tor tbe purpose o'
eliminating competition which for a
time might be expensive to all con
cerned,, but tbe city has grown be
yond the capacity of tbe pieseut sys
tem and whether it can be bought or
not, a better system is imperative. I
therefore urge upon you the necessity
for prompt and effective action iu
tbl vitally important matter, which it
accomplished will be a blessing to
every resident pf (he oity and an, eu
during rnoiuunieut to every man who
participates in the work. The world
ia full of people that are just, going tn
do great things, bat there are fim
paratlvely Tew tbat are limbering Vup
and doing things, actually, now, let
oa limber up.
Another important subject that I
thi'.k is worthy of consideration is
the matter of count rnaila m.1
bridges within tbe oity limits. Ibe
taxpayers now p ty into tbe county
treasury auuualJy a three mill tax for
road purposes, which on an assessed
vuluatiou of $4GO,0UU produces tbe
stun ot $i;i80 per annum or about 35
per ceut of tbe original cost of tbe
steel bridge, in other words we pay
tor a new Lridge every three years.
Would it not be for tbe best interests
of tbe people ot the city to assume
the responsibility it bis evaded for
many years and take control of all
thoroughfares and hririuAa within tba
city limits? From wbat inforuia' ion
i uow nave i ining 11 would be a bus
iness like thinu to do.

Our fruit raisers are slow to grasp
tbe fact that they would create a bet

thoir products by advertising, and
there is no moie effective way of at

airorded by exhibitions.
It is to be hoped tbat much more

Having been given Senator Weal-

treated fairly iu tbe matter and allow
ed if possible to demoustrate to him
and the other members to tbe legisla
ture from Wasco oouuty that tbey
were reptesenting thousands of dol
lars, hundreds of taxpayers and great
business iuterests, which asked and
were in favor ot oouuty division, they
at least expected courteous treatment.

opposing the movement aud who have

nary oourtesy ought to at least have

keep an appointment for the oitizeus

a district tbat has beietofore been
oousiderod of a; leunt passing notice.
Only tbe day befoie a long oousulta-
tition was held with one or two uieu
tepiesenting themselves, the cauuty
orHoials and a few obstructionists,
who would lather be wiong than be
president. To tbem they listened be-
oause they beard what tbey wanted to
bear, but tbey also heard so much re
garding the great uniuimity ot opin

their ear to tbe ground, heard tbe
thunder aud got out ot the way. They
knew that if a hearing was given the
Hood River committee tbe strength
of their cause must be recoguized
and tbey refused to give it.

sentatives tiiat tbe sections of W'atco

against oounty division and tbat they
have been instructed to oppose It on

be so by tbe men who make it. In
