"1C must be acknowledged that the financial condition of the city could leave little to be desired if the pres- ent-arrears of taxes or even a sub- stantial proportion of them were col lected. and with the conditions, which enter so largely into ihe ability to achieve this end, improving daily, there appears to be every reason to anticipate that early and continuous efforts will be put forward on the part of those presently obligated to thfi city for the purpose of redeeming their present indebtedness." "The affairs of the city at large are slowly but gradually forming them- fplves into that solid and stable con- dition to which it has been aspiring in rect-nt years, the ultimate attain- ment of v.hich will be the practical re- siiit of efficient, vigilant and pains- taking government supported by ihe co-operation of harmonious and sym- pathetic citizenship."

Col. Roosevelt prefaced his speech by announcing that ho had "come here to because in the pri- mary for the selection ot, delegates to the Republican natipnal conven- tion, ilr. Ford was victorious, and fol- lowing on his victory here, he showed a marked jwpular strength in Nebras- ka and Pennsylvania. The effect of this showing; has been immediately visible upon many of the politicians within and without through our representatives at Washington." said the colonel, "have absolutely refused in the smallest de- gree to prepare during these twenty- two- months of world cataclysm. We have refused to learn the smallest pan of the lesson being written on the scroll of torment in Europe. We have fatuously refused to take the smallest step either to do our duty to ourselves or our duty to others. We have endeavored to deceive our- selves by announcing that in this pol- icy of suppine inaction and of fail- ure to perform duty, we are actuated by the loftiest motives. 1 doubt whe- ther we have really deceived our- selves and most certainly we have not deceived others. There is not a na- tion in the world which believes that our course of conduct has been dictat- ed by anything save timidity, unwor- thy shrinking from effort and respon- sibility and cold and selfish love of money-making and of soft ease. "In any serious crisis there are al- ways men who try to carry water on both shoulders. These men try to es- cape the hard necessity of choice between two necessarily opposite al- ternatives, by trying to work up some compromise. In actual practice, this compromise usually proves to com- bine with nicety all the defects and none of the advantages with both courses. It is true that in ordinary political matters compromise is essen- tial. It is true that in ordinary times it la essential. But there comes great crises when compromise is either im- possible or fatal. This is one of those crises. There is no use in saying that j we will tit ourselves to defend our- selves a little, hut not much. Such a j position is equivalent to announcing that if necessary, we shall hit, but that we shall hit soft. The only right principle is to prepare thoroughly or not at all. The only' right principle is to avoid hitting if it is possible to do so, but never under any circum- stances to hit softly. To go to war a little, but not much, is the one abso- lutely certain way to insure disaster. To prepare a little, but not much, stands on va par with a city de- veloping a fire department which, af- ter a fire occurs, can put it out a lit- tle, but -not much." Col. Roosevelt declared that the Wilson administration "has taken no step for preparedness, and has done nothing efficient to sustain our na- tional right."

Col.
