For time and tide, that no man controls, has brought to us the Seat of Law and produced in our midst a beautiful new building. No city could be more grateful than we are for the trust and the responsibility that the people of our county have placed in us. It is the nature of man that some will live in the country and some will live in town-but residence doesn't alter the fact that each is dependent on the other. Without the peope and the natural wealth of its great trade territory there would be no City of Hope. On the other hand, there are some things which a city can do for the countryside that the countryside can't very well do for itself —and to that end we dedicate ourselves in the future as in the past. Because electric plants have to be supported by a concentrated population the City of Hope alone in Hempstead county has a generating station. The plant is owned by the citizens of Hope — but its services belong to the rural citizens of Hempstead county within our franchise limits. Hope has built many miles of transmission lines to make yesterday's dream of rural electrification a reality today. All-weather roads and electric light and power are the two greatest boons a government can bestow upon the man on the farm—and the City of Hope is glad to have been able to help. When you thought of Hope in the past you thought of our stores, and theaters, and our public meeting-place in the City Hall. And many of you came here. Today Hempstead county has a beautiful new courthouse. That's one more reason you will come here-and because of it you are doubly welcome! CITY OF HOPE
