Mr. Piatt, though still Bufferingireatly from his illness, came down stalks, and, standing in the doorway, sppkl aa follows: "FELicjto CITIZENS: I'm glad to avail myself of this opportunity to express my gratitude to you for the generous support you have accorded me in the contest for Mayor. The contest has been conducted without any personal animosity or recrimination. It has been a contention between friends —Greek against Greek—and,my party has wori.(£pplau8e). I entered this contest wJUh^ut one purpose and that, was, so far a's Jay In my power, to discharge the duties of the oflice to which the voters of Sterling have elected me for the best interests of all the people of Sterling. (Cheers). - "I have' no political ambition to serve; I have no relatives that I desire to promote to oflice; I cherish no sectional preference for any one part of the city. Sterling is one to me and, whatsoever else I may do, I shall endeavor to discharge the duties of the- oflico which you have conferred upon me with prejudice towards none. (Applause and cries of "Good!") "You are all familiar with my actions during the six years that I served this city as an Alderman. Jt believe that I have the satisfaction of knowing, at least,-thatpi-have ~ The wedding of Mr. Eugene Leigh Freeman, of Chicago, son of Mr. and Mrs, E. T.

Notwithstanding the fact that the result of the ballot for Mayor was posted in the STANDARD window within balf an hour after the close of the pojls, Mr, Piatt did not bear of tu* aews of his eJeetioa until About ?$Q ties to the satisfaction of my constituents, and, I hope, to the satisfaction of the people. (Cries of "Auieii." "That'a right,") 1 am unable at this time to outline the policy by which i shall be governed in the iuture. 1 will, now- ever, say in a general way that, while I am in favor of continuing and extending public improvements of a permanent character aa rapidly and as ex- tensiyely as existing conditions will permit, I am sensible that this is not a lime when public improvements should be made tuat will increase taxation and be burdensome to the people (Cheers) 1 am in favor of expending the regular and legitimate resources of the city after paying current expenses, in the maintenance and preservation of the permanent improvements we now£ave,und to extend them aa far as our resources will permit. (Applause and cheers), • "I want to see the public funds honestly expended for the purposes for which they are appropriated. The time has come when it is necessary to practice economy in the administra tion of the city's nuances, and that the taxes paid by the people shall be expended for the people. (Applause. ) - I regret that, owing to the condition o'f my voice, I must ask you to excuse me from niaking a more extended speech. Though I cannot address you longer as this time, I assure you that I shall use my beat endeavors to promote the peace, happiness and prosperity of the people of Sterling.. (Loud and prolonged cheering."/ At the conclusion of the address the famous Keystone yteth lleglment J3and appeared and played a number of their best selections. The crowd gave three cheers for Mr. Piatt and followed him up stairs to congratulate him upon his victory. It was n late hour before the supporters had all gone home and the customary quiet feigned over the city. . ° The Standard Bulletin!.

He was an active supporter of all that tendedto advance the best interests of his home city, and waa financially interested and a promoter of a number of its early business enterprises. As a man, he was upright and conscientious; aa a citizen, he was respected and honored; as * friend, true and steadfast; as a neighbor, kind and con- aiderate; and as a husband and father he ever filled the measure to the full.
