There were few surprises In the list
and many members stopped to con?
gratulate President Peters on tits as?
signments. The appointment ot Mr.
Vondrrlchr to Streets occasioned some
i comment. Mr. Vohderlehr has been on
that committee from Henry Ward for
tiie past term, and has proved an active
member. Under the rcdlstrlctlng he
I was re-elected to the Council from Lee
Ward. In the past few months Mr.
1 Vondcrlehr has accepted a position
with the contracting firm of I. J.
I Smith & Co., and Is now engaged in the
I construction wotk on the new Mayo
I Bridge which that lirm Is building for

\ Smith & Co.. Is also under contract f..i
I some paving, tower and other work,
j under a ward of the Street Committee
At the time Mr. Vondcrlehr went with

j that h.' would retire from the Council,
'but he did not decide to take that sit p.
I His reiippolntment to the Srect Com
' initee under he cltcumstanc.es of his
employment was regarded by some as
! the only mistake |u President Peter's
I list of assignments.
Councilman Sullivan, who has served
I on the Street Committee from old
j Marshall Ward, gives place to Captain
j Mills. The new members of the Fl
; nance Committee are Messrs. Seaton,
of CL.y. and Lumsden. of Jefferson.
Mr Ratcliffc will probably become
chairman of the Light Committee, vice
Mr. Grimes, who goes on the Finance
Commltfce. Sir. Jones will probably
head the Electricity Committee. The
election of Colonel Gruhdy as chair?
man of the Finance Committee has
been assured for some lime. It Is stat?
ed that Mr. Fuller will he made s ib

Mr. Pollock's election as chairman
