Municipal councillor's dream (1925)

Any good bureaucrat can relate! The municipal coffers are full and locked; new capacious trams move passengers along well-organized streets; Shanghai Grand Opera theatre has been built, rows of trees planted, a replica of the Eiffel Tower is looming on the horizon. Thankful citizens have erected the administrator a shiny new statue... In the "biting reality," however, the "expenses cat" is about to outrun and smother the "income mouse."
