POSIMASTER REMOVED. - Last

position have been forwarded to
the department. Judging from sim -
ilar appointmeLts in counties
around us, we can hardly expect
that a.democrat will be appointed
here, but a decent' respe'ct foi the
interests of the people and business
of the town and county, it appear-s
to us, should move the department
to appoint a responsible and re
spectable person to that importatnt
