<br />The City.Council, South Bend, Ind.
<br />Dear Sirs : — In behalf of the Firemen and Policemen ofthe City of South Bend, I am writing this
<br />letter with the understanding that it might benefit not only the above mentioned but all the
<br />citizens of this city.
<br />There is no one, I believe, who has escaped a reduction in monthly wages. The present :policy o
<br />the.government is to increase rather than decrease the buying power ofthe individual. To further
<br />reduce the wages of the Firemen and Policemen would, in my opinion, be detarimental to the COMMLnity.
<br />According to the adage -- we give in proportion as we receive - -, a reduction ern wages, would
<br />necessarily weaken the safety, protection and well being afforded the citizens by these two cla
<br />I hope the above will be received in the same spirit as it is written and intended. With kindest
<br />regards, Sincerely yoyrs, A. J. Wibbert.
