A heavy north west gale prevails. Who Will Be Mayor? The mayoralty situation became slightly mixed today and it is now almost certain that Mayor Adams will again be in the field. Strong pressure was brought to bear on him today, and he an- nounced his willingness to recon- sider his decision to retire. Aid. Goode refuses to retire. He waited until Mr. Adams had made definite decision to retire and now says he'is in the field to stay. Ex-Aid. George Hatch will also run, so that with three good men in the field, all that remains is for the ratepayers to take their choice. Any one of the three would fill the chief magistrate's chair with efficiency, and it is now assured that the city will have an inter- esting municipal campaign. Go to it, gentlemen.
