Office in Sanford It HaWlei Steie, IEWIOWH WATZK.WOSKI, Believing that tbe Interest of water supply to ttili community Is paramount to that of any other at the present time, leads us tp again refer to it in our pres ent Issue. We are pleased to report that tbe past week a surrey has been made by Mr. B. H. Hull, of Bridgeport, assisted by Col. Wright, of this town, which proves the fact before stated In our col umns, that tbe elevation Is perfectly sat isfactory. It was also found that the es timated length of the main pipe was large, and that quite auaving can thus be wade, It lias been decided to call a public meeting, to take place Thursday evening Sept. 27th, at J 1 u , In Sanford's Ball It is very desirous that there should fce a Ml attendance, to hear the report of tlienglneer, and for a free discussion of the whole subject. If tbe matter should result In no action being taken by our citizens we fear it will be a long time be fore similar opportunity will be again presented. Let us have a good atten dance, and secure a permanent bless log, IQWK EUECTIOW. Before our next issue tbe annual elec tion for town officers will be made, also Representatives chosen to represent this town in oar State Legislature. Sow, though this paper claims, a neu tral position in politics, yet we would ad. Vise that great care be taken in the selec- tion of both town officers and Represen tatives, and that less regard be paid to simple party lines ; and choose; for the several, important positions, those best qualified for the offices that they may be elected to nil. The present year -our Representative will have matters to bring up that will pertain to our interest as a town in more ways than one, and it would be to our dvantage if more care was given to this matter. .'
