done to avoid a strike, but last week
the employees of several of the small

the three tour system by Tuesday

The heads of the firms of the Rob

Will Succeed Tuttle as Head of Bos
ton & Maine.
The New Vork Tribune says: When the
merger of the Boston & Maine with the
New York, New Haven & Hartford has
been completed, Lucius Tuttle, now presi
dent of the Boston & Maine, will retire
and will be succeeded by Charles S. Mel
lon, president of the New Haven road.
The information was received by the
Tribune from sources close to the New
Haven and to the Boston & Maine man
agements. Mr. Mellen at one time was a subordi
nate of Mr. Tuttle in the Boston & Maine.
Mr. Tuttle is one of the best-known rail
road men in the east, and in Maine people
will tell one that he commands more
l.niniln,- ronfiilence thnn any business
man in that part of the country. Mr.
Tuttle, it is understood, is not m close
.,,.,i -;ti. Ale Alellen and would not
remain with the Boston & Maine under
the consolidation, and, moreover, he feels
that after long years of active railroad
work he is entitled to a rest. His suc
cessor, as far as operating control is con
cerned, will be an experienced Boston &
Maine man. but the-real control of the
property will be in the hands of Mr. Mel
len. Suicide at Woodstock.

C. Fitts and others. Tho gathering
will be informal and will take the
form of class reunions.
The movement for a general reunion
was started so late this season that
there was no time to formulate definite
plans for a gathering commencement
week. It is expected that at the
meeting Friday steps will be taken
for effecting a" permanent organization
of the alumni and that a reunion in
more elaborate form will be held next
vear. It is urged that individuals who
are interested make an effort to get
out their former classmates for the
class reunions. It is probable that the
plans for future reunions will include
the assignment or separate pans iu mo
arrangements to different classes.

There is still opportunity for a bust
ling candidate in the third district, in
which voting has not been very brisk.
We naturally wish to have as large a
yoto as possible, although the winner
will receive the prize no matter how
few votes are cast.
In the second district a new name
appears, that of Samuel Brown of
Springfield, VL As four new subscrib
ers for five years each would put any
candidate ahead in this district, it can
easily be seen that the race is not
vet over.
In the first district, any one of the
four leaders has a good opportunity to
win. Remember the votes must be in
by noon July 2.
