Cavanaugh was chairman, B. P. Bryar, secretary, This caucus was also well attended, 17 votes being cast. The democrats had a little "hard iuck" in their nominations. E. F. Parks was nominated for president, and it was an excellent nomination. However, he had not been consulted. Ho was attending the inauguration at Washington and on being notilied by telegraph ho promptly and emphatically refused to run. After much skirmishing around, tho demo crats persuaded II. L. McNeil to 11 1 1 the vacancy. For the short term trustee, C. D. Richmond was nominated. Ho was not present and had not been con sulted. Tho next morning ho informed the democratic committee that he was a republican and wou'd not run on the democratic ticket. W. T. S. Strow bridge v put on to fill this vacancy. Tho ticket as it was finally fixed up is a follows: President II. L. McNeil Clerk-W. H. Mason Treasurer II. V. Hopping Trustees (full term) Frank Avery S. O. Kenyon Chas. Lake Trustee (vacancy) W. T. S. Strowbridge Assessor E. M. Snow The Christian church by a unanimous vote has extended a call to Rev. C. M. Keeno for another year commencing May I. Mr. Keen has been with the church 10 months, and through his labor it has felt a spiritual uplift unknown for some ars. Tho supper at tho K. of P. hall Tues day evening was attended by a large number of the knights and their ladies, about 100 being served. After the sup per, dancing was indulged in. Tho oc casion was one of tho most enjoyable of all those given this season. Judge L. B. DesVoignes was in Paw Paw, Monday, to meet some of our people. J. O. Becraft of Dowagiac ac companied him. Judge Des Voigneg tnadt a very favorable impression on all who m't him, and tho better the people know him the better they aro suro to like him.

Easton, an old resident of Paw Paw, died at his home Sunday nvening, aged years and 20 days, after a long illness. Funeral services were held at tho house Thursday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. A. V. Mumford olli ciating. Interment was at West Oshto mo. Deceased leaves a wife, several other relatives and many old friends to mourn. Tho electric railroad meeting at tho council room Tuesday evening was well attended. Mr. Grant of Kalamazoo, rep resenting tho company, was present. He explained that tho money was in sight to lloat tho bonds of tho road, and that the surveyors aro already working out from South Haven towards Paw Paw. He said tho company, while not specify ing any amount of assistance, would like help in securing tho right of way, and p1 ho as substantial donations or stock sub scriptions as could bo secured along tho line. He said tho lino would doubtless be in operation as far as Paw l'aw this summer. Our business men did not ex press their ideas freely, but asked Mr. Grant quite a good many questions. Tho feeling seemed to bo that Paw Paw would furnish tho right of way through tho township and grant a liberal fran chiso in tho village, but not much en thusiasm wai demonstrated for dona tions or stock subscriptions. However, it was voted that Chairman T.J. Cava naugh should appoint a committee of fivo to f oo what cau bo dono. lie said he would announco the committeo through tho press. Tlj meeting ad- tcr from start to finish. Don't miss this, j jourced subject to call of tho chairman.
