K. It. AUTI,L, Huiot.
The last issues of the city papers
were pretty full of correspondence be
tween the city council and the commis
sioners of publie works. We do not
propose to discuss the merits of this
much correspondence, supposing of
Course that it has merit. but we want
to otrier a few suggestions or make a
few remarks, not in tihe shipe of ad
vice or in tihe spirit of criticism, but
we hope in that spirit which looks to
the tpublic weal. There is not been
that blusine';s harmony and co-operation
between the town council and the com
missioners of public works which should
prevail and which is necessary to sub
seri thet public goodi. It is certainly
of no good to the public for these otli- I
c:als to be cross-firmig at one another.
Wh:t they want to do is toget together N

The tea.chers were in session while

ood and profitableI meeting though tle
um11ber in at tendance was much smaller
)In we had ever seen it at a teachers'

11nual gatherings of the teachers.
Among those at the spring from
ewberry we recall President Geo. B.

GOOD ROADS CONVENTION.
The regular quarterly meeting ot' the

aIled for 13th July. Some of t lhe tow n
hips have organized local associations

Ve notice that those that have organ
ted have elected delegates to the
ounty convention. There is no objec
ion to this but it should not leave t he
npression that only accreditedi dele
aLes wvill be admitted to seats an,l . voices
the convention. It will be remem
brred that it was on this point that all
