You ire aware, hnvever, th it
the exp'u bture is considerably

duties will not place the Colony
in 1 st te of fi lanci tl emb irrass-

Mr. President, and Honourable
Gentleman ol the Legislative
Council, Mr. Speaker, and Geli'le-
men of the House of Assembly.
several important Laws hive
been added to the Statute Book of
the Colony. I shall or.lv refer to
some of the more important.
An Act regulating the Depart-
ment of licasuier and providing
for certain changes therein, and \n
Act ( 1 piovi le f ' the establishment
of a Custo ns Depirtment for the
Colony; when suitable offices are
piovnied for these two Pe-
pailmerit-, I hope the Colony will
derive the full benefit as provided
for by the Acts, and that the Reve-
nue obtained from the Customs
will be better Safeguarded than
heretofore.
An Act to make provision for
securing the Public Health; will
emble the Health hoard to con-
tinue the good work which ihey
have for the last year undertaken
in conjunction with the Board of
Workl in watching over the sani-
tation 0! this city, and keeping its
stieets and houses not only in a
clean, but also in a proper sanitary
condition, Ihe public now realize
that the action taken by the Health
Officer of enforcing the proper
cleaning of yards has conduced to
healthiness, and Ihe methods em-
plnyed have nut been drastic, or in
any w.iv inconsiderate lo the
feeimgs of theinhabitantsol this
city.
An act to provide for the ap
pointmenl ofa Devel ipineni B *rd
will, I trust, be the means of bring
ins; th- adtan'ag's of thes- Is'ands
as a health and pleasure rCSOtt to
the notice u! the travelling public
of Canada and ihe United states,
I hope to be able to appoint a
lioard of practical business men,


and trust that the amounts voted "
will be judiciously expended.
/ i. I regret the termination of the
' jfWail Contract with the New York
and Cuba Mail Steamship Com-
pany. The terms put forward by
ifa Company as conditions <>f a
ew Contract weresuch that it was
impossible for the Government to
accept. An Act to amend the Mail
Service Act 1873 will enable the
Government to call for tenders for
a new Contract. The Act gives the
Executive wide powers; I thank
you fur the confidence you have re-
posed in the Government, which,
I can assure you, will not be a bus-
fd. He'ore rxecuting an\ contract,
every endeavour will be made to
secure the best service that cart be
provided, and to which the travel.
Imsr publk1 are rightly entitled.
The interests of the mercant 1-
community will ,-ilso be safeguard
ed
Unfortunately, the reports on the
surveys of the Harbour and the
Water Supply have not been re-
ceived I anticipate that both Re
ports will be ready early in the
next Session.
Mr Speaker, and Gentleman of
the Honourable the House of As-
sembly.
To ensure security against fire
in this City is the most important
duty of those repn' siMe for the
providing of funds for an efficient
Fire Hrig'ide; it is to he regretted
that money was not vote:l for nnl
improved Fire Engine; in a town
of this kind, where there nre (toI
manv wooden buildings rapidity.
of movement on the pirt of En"
(.'ines is most essential.
The reduction of the Ta riff is
no doubt responsible f(r the post-
ponement of the extension of 'be
Wireless Telegraph to som" "'
the more important Out-Islands.' It
is vrrv deeirnhle that not only
thoiild these Out-Islands be con-
nected with the Capital, but *l0
that connection should be es.
Labli'shed wi'h th adjacent British
possessions I trust the postpone-
