NEW COUNCIL AIMS WELL Mayor Galbraith Outlines Nc�mitt�� of City-Plrat Meeting of New AJfttalttratort. All the members of the Council of 1007, with the exception of AM. Robinson wore present at the inaugural meeting on Monday night. After the. minutes of the lost meeting of the old council had toon wad Mayor Galbraith delivered an ad  drew to the council, which contained many Import am suggestions, It read an follows: MAYOR'S ADDRESS. In opening this first mooting of too Council for the yuar 1907, to which moat of us conic a� now men, il has appcarod to mo wise to lay before you In a format way somo impressions of tho city's requirements as 'they have come to mo. Thin will be done with a due realization of tho good work of preceding councils and not with any intention of mlminl*-ing what they havo accomplished. If they hod done nothing funhcKhan the preparation of the charter un-dor which our city la now govorned they would bo entitled to cur last -mg gratitude. W� arts now passing through an era of marked prosperity and if I rend tho sgns correctly it has not yot reached its height. Ihe coal strike now happily set -tied, has certainly huni|>crcd business somewhat, but wo trust the present amicable relation* amy long continue. In this connection- I think wc owe both men and company a word ot praise, the former for their uni -forinly good conduct und tho latter for the consideration of our city In supplying coal und In rcfralningfrom an advance in price. A (MTV ENGINEER. Tho first subject to which I desire to call your attention is one of prime importance. In view of the large amount of money which we are now spending ami must continue to spend in live development and extension of our water und sewerage systems, and the improvement of our streets, it In necessary to consider tha appoint-ment of a competent city engineer. It is too much to ask that any foreman of works, no nmUer how-able as such, be made responsible for tho proper grading of sewer connections or be asked to prepare pi tins of them for reference. The supervision of roads and walks also a matter of urgency should be one of the duties of such an official for the time has surely rome for us to get export advice us to the construction of permanent improvement* of this character. Tho cureful inspection of proposed buildings would come within his sphere and countless ways in which we could profitably use an en- ! ginoer you. will, 1 fool, occur to ail of TAXATION has beeti recently questioned it will bo an opportune time to have the whole mutter gone Into and in this connection i desire to place befcru you for consideration what appears from some study of the subject of fire, to be a first principle. You nave all watched the develop* ment of. our system. After a town la Incorporated, fire limits are donned within which only tire proof or quasi Are proof buildings are per -matted to be gubseguently erected, but the ones already In existence are allowed to remain and eciAc and placid in the hands of the men to whemtit will directly appeal. 1 believe thnt a steady aggressive cumpnign would result in consider  able additions to our manufacturing and wholesale establishments within a very* short tiuw. This ishould be in the hands of our immigration committee and shculd be well supported financially. 1 trust gentlemen that thin short pro-review of our work, incomplete as it necessarily is by reason of tho wealth of subjects to be discussed may not bo without lts> value, and 1 uni sure that if �-o accomplish a fair percentage of the results aimed at. besides others to which you will doubtless draw our attention. we will not have reason to be ashamed of our work. To this end we must sink all personal matters and co-operate for the good of all the people ami this I ask with confidence of tho result."
