Another such a measure was introduced in the ' present Con egress, and it is-, likely that it will to be considered. This measure has j? no relation or no connection with a general Parcels Post.

OUR CITY DADS. . The city electijon last Saturday passed very quietly and good humoredly. Notwithstanding ther was a considerable uitterence in personal choice, there were no campaign issues of any great ruo nient, and the best of feeling ex isted. The retiring Mayor, John T; Walker, declined .to stand for re-election, and W. 11. Gardner is his successor. Three members of the old Board of Aldermen stood for election and wore indorsed To these . were added the names t)f J. C. Burdick, John Semones and II. M. Whipple, all g o o d and capable men. The others are John Adams, J. F.: Gregory and S. S. Alexander. The retiring Mayor, Mr. Walker, has given, a great deal of time and care and thought to the administration of -(City af fairs, and his effort" have met with substantial approval. - The same can be said of his associates '. . ' "- ' , . -'v on the board. All men cannot agree on minute, affairs and many differ qn leading questions, but no one c;au but agree with us that Mr. Walker has been exceptionally am bitious and . conscientious in the discharge of , his official 4 u t y . Other members have peen notable in this respect, but they will not feel aggrieved if we speak of the unusual interest Mr. Walker has taken in the work. He has been as loyal and as active in the city's interests as he has been in his own private affairs, and the success of his undertakings have been con ceded. This is saying a great; deal, but we believe the Jjr,'nYfVj boar us out. Ic taker ''oblft'' J , Ob- FINE CANDIES, FRUITS, CIGARS, Etc.
