Another veteran member of the
board of supervisors is to seek re
election, T. R. Lees having been nom
inated at the caucus of the democrats
of Coal Valley Saturday night. The
republicans of Coal Valley are to meet
tonight, but that Mr. I-ees will be re
turned to the board is almost a cer
tainty. Mr. Lees, it will be recalled, was
the candidate for chairman of the
board who opposed Mr. Carey a year
ago, nearly defeating the Carbon Cliff
member for the place. It is not im
probable that if both are reelected
they will both be candidates for the
chairmanship. Mr. Carey, however,
will have strong opposition for elec
tion. Caucuses were held in the majority
of the townships Saturday, the results
being as follows:
