Another Year of It.
Evidently   the   people   oi
what is left of this city  take
kindly to the  thought  of aunt her year of civic administration along the lines nf the
variety handed out   from  the
city hall,  located  somewhere
to the west of Prince George.
Mayor Gillett   Nvas  returned
to ollice by a majority   of 81.
Ward One gave Mr. Porter a
majority of 24, while Ward '1
gave his opponent a majority
of 26, making ir necessary for
lhe mayor to back up into his
stronghold, Ward. Three,   for
safety. This practically means
that the unfortunate location
of Prime George, which is too
close to the Hammond town-
site for the good of its citizens.

publishing lhe names of the

value on the Herald than nnc
could hope for.
is responsible for the defeat
of Thomas Porter. The standing of the vote of Prince
George proper would have
meant a recount to decide the
winner, but the vote of Fort
George did the trick.
The citizens of I 'rince (ieorge
had an opportunity to place
in the mayor's chair a man
who never made promises
without fulfilling them. Mayor Gillett has again made
promises which we do not
think can be fulfilled. Weshall
see.
Heaven save us. after stepping out in a small city of this
size where pronounced opin-
iona on any subject mean the
making of enemies, from making any appearance of quitting the light for better administration. This city is in
a miserable condition today
we still claim, and inefficient
administration is responsible.
Possibly we shall have a better brand in the future.
Now watch for the sale of
the city's bonds at 90 or better. Now we shall have electric current day and night, an j
efficient water system, good
parks, and in short a dandy j
time. Suffice il to say that if
