This means that a. mayor and five aldermen will have to be elected at the municipal elections in. December. The Balkan scare is as nothing com- pared to what the municipal elections this winter promise to be. Five al- dermen and a mayor to be elected all hi one ballot will create plenty of ex- citement, aud already prospective can- didates are girding- up their loins ready for the fray, and it will be the warmest ever. More personal ele- ment will enter into the...campaign than ever, and the election-will be a bitter personal fight from beginning to nd. Aid.

Looking at the art gallery in the city hall this morning, he said that he had sat on the council under five of the mayors whose pictures adorn the walls. He has also occupied the chief magis- trate's chair for two year's himself, and is now ready to step down. :_ Aid. Skeith, w-ho stepped Into, the fray so nobly last December, has also had enough.
