Almost the only thinj which could overthrow the Labor Government before May would eb the introduction of the capital levy. It is a matter of common knowledge that being a minority party, with only 31 percent of the votes in the House of Commons, the Labor Government will either be very short lived or will confine Its active program to such policies and legislation as meet general Liberal approval."

IT miy well belaid that few American communities hftv? had a more rapid growth in population, industry and commerce. Turning backup 1865, when Abraham &' Straus was established, we gaze upon remarkable . changes the word "progress" is more boldly written as the years pass on to the present year of Brooklyn's greatest achievement. The Abraham & Straus store has kept the pace and is today world-famed as one of the representative establishments of our community. While it has grown with 'Brooklyn, it has , Carried with it the sincere goti&.will of the-people of Brooklyn." On behalf of. our Borough, permit me, therefore, to extend heartiest congratulations on this, the 59th Anniversary of your concern, with theVish tha1 it continue to carry on in the future as in the past and that its efforts be crowned with similar success. Brooklyn in 186 and 1924 by comparison presents an interestng story. The old City, we learn, was suffering from the aftermath of the Civil war. But there came stimulus a few years later and our people looked ahead to greater accomplishments. Brooklyn had a developed area of approximately twenty square miles with a population of less than three hundred thousand souls. Today our territory hay spread to seventy-seven square miles and we are reaching a mark in populationxclose to two and a half million. It is estimated each year that eighty thousand new home seekers come to Brooklyn. Approximately 3,000 homes obtained in the Qity and building construction in' 1859 is recorded to'' total $1,838,000. Today Brooklyn has nearly 200,000 dwellings, and our Borough has surpassed every city in the country with more than $284,000,000 of building construction. For three consecutive years Brooklyn" has broken her own building record by many .millions. The public schools in the old City served less than 30,000 pupils, while today, in Brooklyn, nearly half a million children march ofT to the schools daily. Brooklyn today is one of the healthiest Cities of the world. Infant mortality is at its lowest. Going back to 1865, we find health records' dotted with several hundred cases of dreaded diseases. These diseases were constantly prevalent. The sewage system was largely confined to the riverfront or to the most developed areas. Ten miles made tip the entire system. Cesspools were the only means of drainage. Today, Brooklyn has the finest sewage system in the world, not excepting the famed sewers of Paris. The largest and most modern sewer in the world is in Brooklyn, known as the Raloh-Remscn Avenues sewer, emptying into Paerdegat Basin. 1,125 miles of under-surface sewer system now protect the health ofmr community. , Nine million gallons of drinking water were sufficient to iupply our forbears fifty-nine years ago. Tshere were very few house connections. But today we require 235,000,000 gallons datly, and the old out-door pumping well is ncKmore. The last romantic chapter of the volunteer firev department was written Ir 1 865. (Only, two years ago, we witnessed the last alarm with horse-drawn apparatus.) The paid fire department came the year following the war. The property of the old City' was guarded by a force that today would be inadequate to protect a single square mile of our Borough property. Brooklyn now' has ninety-three motorized fire companies with a uniform force of " approximately two thousand men. The same is true of the police system. The old force of a few hundred men was scattered at posts nearly two miles apart with an appalling lack of discipline.' .Today our City has the finest police system in theVorid. Its daily record is our daily discussion. Nearly 2,500 men guard our fives and property and guide the constant' traffic due to the motor cars ori our highways, unknown when Abraham & Straus came into being. Who can foretell the Brooklyn of half a century hence? Abraham & Straus Fulton St. Hoyt St. Livingston St.--Gallatin Place A. & S.
