o'clock nt Fireman's Hall to pass upon
this matter. It is understood there is
only one applicant for the office now,

of Norman K. Lyman. This menus prob
ably a walkover for Lyman, especially in
view of the 'fact that all the members
practically of the Executive Council of
the Board of Trade have endorsed his ap
plication. Postmaster Madeira has re
ceived no official notice of the contem
plated change in his status nud wns much
