The wind of the few Days previous had been sufficient to dry up most of the mud and what was not was Frozen hard enough to make Wheeling Good. As a result there were a Large number of up Island people in town drawn hither by that momentous occasion the annual town meeting. As in previous years the preliminaries for this annual gathering of the people had been Well attended to. The usual Curbstone caucuses and Corner store meetings had been held in due form. The fitness of the candidates for the various positions had been discussed the ins and outs for the various schemes for which appropriations were to be asked had been consid rep l hid of the outcome of the election were As plentiful As one could desire. It was a Surprise to Many to see such a Large gathering at the Casino. At times during the Day every seat in the galleries of the Casino was occupied a Large proportion of the audience being women. The seats on the lower floor of the House had been removed and the floor covered with canons on top of which was a thick layer of sawdust. Here were gathered the forces which we into decide the Fate o the several candidates. So crowded was the Hall that final electioneering was done with difficulty. While All were deeply interested in the outcome of the election Good nature was the prevailing characteristic and not a discordant note was struck. The meeting was called to Orser at 10.15 by the town clerk who proceeded to read the town warrant. Upon completion of the Reading the first article was taken up. Article in to choose a Moderator to preside at said meeting. Upon counting the ballots bion e. Whitney was declared unanimously elected and was Sec run in by the clerk.

Article 4�?to choose selectmen and assessors for the year. Or. Robert Amory made a motion Llinat this article be divided and that action he taken on that portion relating to the elec tion of selectmen a the election of assess ors to be left for later action. Ken Hamor suggested that the assess ors be elected by ballot after the election of selectmen. John , jr.,said the Law rec Muired that the selectmen and assessors be elected by ballot but that it is to defer the election of assessors until a later period in the meeting when the selectmen had been elected . Or. Amory s motion was unanimously carried. The Moderator said that it had been customary to use the Check list and he called the four candidates to the front and asked them to agree upon what should be done in reference thereto their recommendation to be referred to the meeting for ratification. The recommendation was that the Check list should not be in Case of doubt on the part of the tellers whether a Man had a right to vote. Or. Amory thought it too much responsibility to put upon the tellers to decide whether a Man had a right to vote or not and advocated the use of the Check list. B. L. Hadley wanted to know if l3r. Amory s motion to use the Check list referred to the candidates for second and third selectmen and was informed that it did. It was voted to use the Check list. The Moderator appointed As tellers Chas. F. Paine w. H. Davis Julien Emery s. N. Rich l. A. Austin and Benj. L. Hadley.

By this Meins which was similar to the australian ballot he thought the counting of votes would be expedited. S. C. Reynolds raised an objection to this on account of illegality. S. J. Clement offered an amendment that the Check list be done away with but it was ruled by the Moderator that action having been taken on this the amendment could not be considered. When put to a vote or. Amory s motion was declared lost. W. B. Higgins and Elihu t.

He had l Een approached and asked to allow his name to be used and had agreed to take it under consideration. He did not think he could Seive. The question of an equitable division of taxes was a difficult question. He did not want his name used.

That votes had already been cast. Or. Amory called attention to the article which had been made Public several Days ago so the people should be familiar with it.

The assessors would be under oath to Deal justly in making the assessments at pros ent there was a great discrepancy in valuations. He hoped the meeting would decide to continue the vote. Eben Hamor thought it was Rushing things through too quickly possibly one half the people might to consider the matter. Or. Amory said the meeting having decided to. Take the vote the question was not open to argument. Fred c. Lynam said this was a most important question made a motion to adjourn until me 6clock. The Moderator replied that votes having been cast he had no right to adjourn the meeting. Some one suggested that the polls be kept open until 11 a. M. Wednesday and s. J. Clement made a motion to adjourn until 9.30 a. M.
