Then, other years they are so tame they almost feed from the haod. The mayoralty prospects Are in the first order this season.

The Herald called on President Gun ningham, of tho Board ot Trade this morning to find out about various matters, and incidentally mentioned that it was common talk on' the streets that he would be a candidate for may-orslty honors in the forthoomii^g elections. That was a signal for the reporter to walk. There was: nothing doing in the lino of inside Ipformstion. Mr. Cunningham refused to talk. "I would ratlier say nothing about it at present" was about the extent of the information the press man was able to coa.\ out of him. He has other things on hand. He ra�y and then he may not. To judge by hia'at^itude when the question was put to hjm in a very blunt manner he would rather not. But then there are clrouniBtan-ces under whicb he woi^ld. Snould those circumstances arise he avIU. Otherwise he will not., Time will tell. However, the Herald has, it on the best of authority If the president of the Board of Trade can arrange his private matters to suit, ho will be at the call of his supporters.
