MRS. A. M. BUTZ, 222 Clinton Ave. The new postollice building in Chicago is said to be "a mockery''; inferior material is said to have been used in the construction of what was to be the best government building in the United States, and now there is to be a whole lot of trouble about it--an investigation and suits at law. The village and town conventions were held at Kenilwortli Hall last Monday evening The hour had grown to nearly '■» o'clock before the buck-horn ami' sounded on the <ntk table There was a very large attendance of citizens and all tlu- delegations were fully represented. Daniel G. Trench, chairman of the executive committee, called the convention to order and It. ('. Coombs, secretary of the committee, took his place beside the chairman. On motion 1). G. Trench and VV. S. Ilolden were placed in nomination for temporary chairman. On roll-call the vote stood: Hidden. Trench, H 1. Col. W. C. Hunter, having been elected sergealit.-at-anns, in a rheumaticky step conducted Mr Ilolden to the chair. Chairman Ilolden thanked the convention for the unexpected honor anil hoped that calm deliberation would characterize whatever was done by the convention. (ieorge Landis Wilson ("that's all") was chosen temporary secretary. The chairman called for a list of the delegates. Following is the list of delegates of the convention by precincts: First—G. F.

The committee retired to consider all the resolutions that had been duly and truly prepared for the past fortnight. In the azure atmosphere ligures were moving about cutting their way through to openings in the hall so that a breath of fresh air might, he obtained. 1'here ought to be a smoke consumer ittaclied to every call fora convention. Clots of delegates were discovered when they could be discerned through the volumes of exhalations from burning substances—and earnest conversation regarding the burning questions (we do not mean cigars, this time ) to be discussed in the resolutions committee and wii till' iluoi of the convention engaged the close attention of delegates and visitors. Not since the palmy days of the Town of Cicero was there so lively an interest, in local politics. It needed only men like Samuel Attridge and Peter Macl>onald to be the center of groups to attract many listeners to arguments for and against the several vital propositions in which the citizens feel special interest. Half hours multiplied into whole hours, but no sign from the resolutions committee was heard until John Far-son's clock tolled oil" e le veil- li ft cell. when there was a scramble for sittings and a great shuttling of feet and the scratching of a few more matches When comparative, quiet was secured by Chairman Ilolden he recognized Chas. D. Richards, of the Seventh Precinct, who had been chosen as chairman of the resolutions committee. Mr. Richards read his report as follows: TlIK Pl.ATKOKM. Resolved, That the candidates nominated by thifc convention shall he presented to the electors under the caption of the "People's Independent, Party," Resolved, That we adhere to the principle of precinct representation heretofore adopted, and in order that the entire territory may be represented in the administration of village atïairs there shall be nominated to one of the olliees of president, clerk and three trustees one person from each of the five precincts now represented by men whose terms of olliee are expiring; Resolvei?, That in the selection of candidates no discrimination shall he made because of partisan politics in-previous party affiliation, but that the sole aim shall be the attainment of the best possible administration of village OAK PARK OFFICE; J0J-J07 North Cuyler Av.

II. delegate from the FirHt, 1 at I he minority report on the u calling for rcferenduu,i on / nduient of ordinance for the '.cation of hospitals in Oak Park, as eported by the majority report, be idopted. Mr. Harlow, in a calm, dispassionate .'. a\ . argued that the law a.s it stood when he purchased his property in Fair inks should not be changed, as it would i.c unfair to take away or re-luce the limit of af)i) feet for the location of the hospital now that he and I her., haw established their huinua i that portion of the village. I'aniel G. Trench also defended the l.noriH report and pleaded with the delegates to vote against the majority report regarding the referendum. Mr. Trench said that, neither he nor his neighbors wanted the hospital in Fair Oaks because tliev had built their homes lip there to enjoy life, and that ambulances (passing along the street were not conducive to enjoyment. He r. eiieii with inuch earnestness to recent communications between the II .spiiai Association and President Kay in which the latter was induced to pledge himself to use i. ■ s efforts to modify the hospital ordinance. Mr. Trench said it was gooil politics on the part of the Hospital Association, but that President Ray should be released from h is obi igation. Mr. Trench paid, Mr. Kay a tilting compliment for his executive work and in a closing peroration hoped that Mr. Ray would be m uiii nat.cd and elected. Mr. Trench had the convention in the palm of his hand when he finished, and amid great applause he took his seat. C II. Wells, of the Fifth, said that as a member of the committee on reso-lutions lie wished to see the majority report adopted, for he believed the voters were able to settle the matter rightly. He saw no harm and much good in placing the matter oil a separate ballot and haviug the people say (.'oiitiiMcd un Paye ti.
