Bx-Ald. Hamilton made his first appearance oE the campaign and created a good impression. The enthusiasm at no time during the meeting reached the fever heat stage. In fact it was a very staid and sober gathering which didn't recall in any degree the rousing campaign of 1913 when the commis. sioners were first elected. Evidently tho ratepayers are quite satisfied to settle the issues without any of the familiar brand of campaign fire- works. -Bob Nimmons characterized the campaign to date as "the most ridiculous he had ever witnessed, and 99 out of one hundred people present agreed with him. Two meetings have been held so far and no new issue has obtruded itself on the horizon. If any of the candidates mention any new work which might he done, they say they will do it if the people vote the money. They all tacitly admit that the people are bosses of the job Commissioner Grace S .1, Shepherd acted as chairman the meeting. Commissioner Grace was the first speaker and reiterated i his claims of having conducted his department the most economical manner consistent with efficiency.
