Harmony Keynote At
First Council Meet
Absolute harmony prevailed at
Tuesday night's council meeting when
Mayor Peter Pryde and his board of
aldermen met in regular session for
the first time to take up the affairs
of the city where the Dr. Seigfriedt
regime left off. The appointments of
U. H. Nottingham as police judge,
Howard Camp as clerk and treasurer
and Howell McKinnon as marshal and
street commissioner, all received the
immediate and unqualified approval of
the aldermanic body, and the only note
of discord sounded was when Aider
man T. E. Frasure and Alderman Wil
liam McDonald tried to wish the job
of President of the Board onto each
other. Mr. Frasure caried the point
and Mr. McDonald was duly elected
by his colleagues, his own being the
only voice raised in protest. In the
case of city attorney no appointment
was made. After some discussion,
in which the name of John Skinner,
the present town advisor, was the only
one mentioned, the Mayor decided to
hold up the appointment for a week.
David Murray has been named by Mr.
Pryde to fill the unexpired term of
Bert Norris who recently left for Mil
