In the settlement with the old board everything was found ab- solutely correct and the business o'f the company in a satisfactory and flourishing condition. G. H. Kordenet of Augusta, Wis., a man who has grown up in the Electric light business and who comes highly reeomended for his capacity and knowl- edge of the details of the business was employed as manager of the company at a salary of S75 per month, a bona of being required for the faithful performance of his duties and to Insure the company against loss. Mr. Kordenet lias a family and will mova here soon to make this city his home and took charge of the affairs of the company as manager on Monday. It has been taken for granted that the city council must nominate one of its own number to serve on the board of directors of the Electric Water Co., but it has come to.light, during the recent investigation of the subject, by the board that the council can nominate any stockholder of the company, whether such nominee is a member of the council [or not, the only requirement being that ithe nominee must be a stockholder. 3.

The all absorbing question before the legislature at this early stage of proceedings is the selection of a senator to succeed Quarles. The Senduel in speaking of this matter says: Of the several senatorial candidacies, the Webb men are the first In the Held. Senators Wipperman, flatten, Sanhorn, and Hudnali, and Assemblyman Winch are on the ground and have opened up headquarters at the Park hotel. The affnrds.

Shortly after the election of Peter Mc- Camley to the office of supervisor of Assessments by the county board at its last, session, rumors began to spread about that, the election was illegal and that Supervisor of Assessments J. W. CochiBU would hold over until another election was had and a legally elected successor secured and qualified. Chairjian Geo. W. Brown of the county board concluded It would ba well to know what the facts in the case were, so he submitted the question to the state fax commission and asked for instructions. On January 4th the commissioners sub- milled a lengthy opinion, with numerous i citations of law and statutes, to the effect that the election in question was illegal and that Supervisor of Assessments Cochran should continue to administer the duties ol his office until a successor was elected and qualified. The illegality in the election consisted in the board's electing one of its members to fill the office which the statutes of the state plainly interdict. After the first election of Mr. McCamley it seems that this point occurred to some of the board and an attempt was made to remedy the defect by having Mr. McCamley resign his position as supervisor, and here the lawyers on the board fell down again. They had Mr. McCamley tender his res- ignation to the county clerk instead of the city of Grand Rapida, the second ward of which he represented on the county board. To make his resignation legal he would have to file it with the city council of Grand Rapida and that body would have to accept it before he could get out of office. After this at- tempted resignation of Mr. McCamley the board proceeded to elect him again to the office, but it seems with no better success than on their first attempt. According to the state tax commis- sioners Mr. Cochran must hold his office j until his successor is elected and quali- I fled, aud this he would probably do even jif ho were not under 55000 bonds to do so. It 13 safe to say that the next election will be a legal one If it takes all the lawyers In Wood county to make It such. We should like to publish tha whole opinion of the tux commission, It Is so conclusive lu its findings, but time and apace forblda, but we have given above the glat of tholr opinion. Webb men assert that they are the first on the grounds and will be the last to leave. To the surprise of many Wood county people it is reported that John H. White of Mnrshfield, who was looked upon as the choice of many administra- tion assemblymen for sergeant at arms, will not be a candidate, and Chairman Connor presents a AVood county candi- date in the person of Nicholas Stceveller Marshtield for that position. His selection has been ratified by the legisla- ture. There is apparently not fo much re form talk connected with this meeting of. the state iawmiiker3f and to all appear- ances there will be much less fight and much more cordiality among the members than at the last meeting oi the legisla- ture. The primary election law and the ad- valorem taxation law for railroads have been passed and there are no very important questions for the legis- lators to pass upon. There may be a long contest in selecting a senator, bur this should breed uo ill feeling and the probabilities are that it will not. The Qunrles men fieem to lear LaFollette. as a candidate more than they do the candi- dates already in the field, and if it is found no other man is strong enough to beat the senator and their other com- petitors for the place, LaFollette will be called upon to become a candidate.

Meet In Nineteenth Annual Winter Session In Grand Rapids Tuesday The winter session of the Wisconsin State Cranberry Association which was held in the court house Tuesday was not as larg-elv attended as It has been in the past few year's probably on ing to the ex- tremely stormy weather we have just passed through Vice-president 8.
