THE MANITOWOC PILOT.
VOLUME XLIY.-NO. 21. COUNTY BOARD ELECTED IN APRIL The Personnel of it Will Not be Much Altered CITY MEMBERS WILL BE HELD OVER This Decision Has Alrerdy Been Agreed Upon CONTESTS ONLY IN TWO SOUTHERN TOWNS P. J. Conway of Meeme Will Have Opposi. lion and so Will Joseph Finch of Liberty —The Probable Chairman The election of the Board of Supervis ors takes place in April but there will be hardly any contests in the towns, therefore the personnel of the board will be much the same as it is now. It is rumored, however, that P. J. Conway, the present chairman of the town of Meeme will be opposed for re-election by Joseph Connell. Both men are well and favorably known in the county. Mr. Conway's career as chairman of the town, is beyond reproach. H* is considered by bis conferees one of the strongest members of the County board, and has more than once been spoken of for the office of chairman. Ho is emin ently fitted by ability and character to serve his people in any public capacity that they may choose to elect him to. Mr. Connell is also a man of abilitiy, np-to date and aPrt o the interests of the county. In the town of Liberty there may be a three cornered fight. The present supervisor is Joseph Finch who has given satisfactory service to his consti tuents. John Dunbar and George Garry are both anxious to come in as chairman and both men are capable. The members of the County board for ,ue l ily ill hold r until next year hence there will bo no tight here This decision was arrived by an opinion rendered by the attorney general and endorsed by the city attorney. Edward L. Kelley. The fact that no supervis ors will be elected here will keep the board very much of the same Com plexion it is now. Providing that Henry Lehrmau comes in again from Two Creeks he will likely be again charged with the office of chairman of the board. He has filled the position of office with ability and it is said he can be elected if lie chooses to stand and this is what is likely to hap pen. It is not apparent on the surface now that any opposition will be mani fested against him.

MAY DISCONTINUE THE RURAL MAIL SERVICE IN THE WEST Information comes from Washington that there is a possibility that many of the ruflil mail routes will be discon tinued. It is intimated that the service will be largely abandoned in the West owing to the fact that it is carried on at a great exjiense to the general government. While the rural mail service is exceedingly accomodating to the people who live in the country dis tricts, the fact is that not enough mail is distributed to warrant a general adoption of the plan. It is furthermore asserted that many of the routes now established in the West will shortly be discontinued.

The object of these meetings is to explain the plans of the company and to create an interest in the production of sugar beets. Experiments that have been conducted through a series of years have shown that Michigan ami Wis consin are adapted to the raising of sugar beets. It is a fact, though it is not widely known and not mentioned in the geographies, that by far the greater part of sugar used is beet-sugar manufactured in the sugar factories of Michigan: and it looks as if the time is not far distant when every section of the state will have a beet-sugar factory. Business men and farmers should make it a point to attend tnese meet ings so as to learn as much as possible about this new industry which is coming and which will bring greater wealth, more work, and more business.
