OPENING OF THE CONVENTION.
The Association met at Army and Navy Hall, Tuesday, February 19th, 1895, and was called to order at II A. M. by the president, M. J. Francisco, who introduced the Honorable Robert Blee, Mayor of Cleveland. Mayor Blee welcomed the Association in the following address:
ADDRESS OF MAYOR BLEE.
Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen: think it would be proper for me at this time as mayor of the city to give the delegates full freedom of the city, as I have found from personal observation that they have already taken it. As mayor, however, I greet you, and extend to you a very cordial welcome. to this our beautiful Forest City. Our citizens are always glad to have citizens from other cities visit the metropolis of Ohio, and to feel perfectly at home while here with us. The latch-string of the city of Cleveland is always out for our friends from abroad. We have here a very large manufacturing city and a convention city. We have to-day with us the superintendents of the schools of the United States in convention assembled, and, taking them together with
the electrical gentlemen and their ladies who are here present, we may have our hands full, but we will try to entertain you the best we can. The city is yours, mayor of the city I extend to you its full freedom and will turn you over to my friends Brush, Andrews and Wason, and others of the local electrical gentlemen here, who, I have no doubt, will treat you very kindly during your sojourn. If they do not, if they fail in their attempt, if you will call on the mayor, I will try my hand at it. I trust that your deliberations may be harmonious, and that you may figure out a plan whereby we can light the entire business portion of our beautiful city with electricity at reasonable rates.
I am informed that the next governor of Ohio, who is a very able after-breakfast speaker, is to follow me; and, again extending to you a most hearty welcome and the entire freedom of our city during your stay here, I will resign in his favor. (Applause.)
THE PRESIDENT: I now have the pleasure of introducing to you Ohio's silver-tongued orator, Mr. James M. Hoyt, of Cleveland.
