Daniel       Ford  Before   the next  issue of, The Ledger the     nominations for civic elections will have     closed.      According  to  the  present  indications there will  be     no    contest     for the may.or|Hy,  v'Mr. D.  Nicholson     in all prohajjility  being electexl    by acclamation.      For  the Aldermanic Board  several gentlemen are     mentioned as' likely candidates,  but if   is understood  that up  the nomination pa-  gentlcinan only have h^en  presented     .   That   is    Mr.   William  Spcncc.       For   ' the Welt Ward the  names    of     John Tha and   A.  Kerr  ha^c   been    mentioned. Mr.  Tha,  when 'seen this morning said he  would not seek election if Messrs.  Bryden and Malone could be persuaded to again accept nomination. In  well-informed' ircles it is stated that  Mr. Bryden maybe induced to seek  re-election, and while stating that.he  did not desire office ,on the board for  another year. Mr. Malone, when in  tcrviewed gave the reporter to understand that he would accept nomi-  licgging. Other names mentionjed  arc H. Fulton and J.Thomas. ' Both  of these gentlemen express themselves  as being anything .but desirous of office.       Their      friends are,   however, '  ' 1 *  hard at work persuading them and it  is not unlikely they will be successful. Mr. J. Hutchinson js also ia  mentioned as a possible candidate ior  the East Ward. The majority of  those who have been spoken to have  not yet made up their , .roinds and  while there will not be a"ho\L contest for seats on thc board, there  .will problably be sufficient candidates'  to fill all places. It is not improbable that other members of the retiring board will ne nominated on  Monday. ' .  , '  For the Trustee board Mr. H.  Carroll will be nominated and in all  probability Mr. F. Greaves will seek  re-election. , Mr.- FcKinnell. who  was serving on the board up to a  year ago, has been spoken of fcs a'  probable candidate.  Later���������It is learned that Mr. J.

'  as from all accounts ���������- they Jlo. -Wc '  are informed that at a meeting call-1  ed to-elect school trustees, in adis->  trict quite close to the city, only a I  very :&w 'ratepayers turned up. The  meagre attendance can only bc^akc-r.  gs an evidence of the total incliffer-  o'nee on the part of some parents in  regard to affairs pertaining lo the ^  education of tkeir young. ������Wtf Par-1  ents should be so careless in this re  sped 'is difficult to understand. During the year ' they arc not asked to  work hard-for, thc schools, but surely once in twcJve months th"  should be expected to turnup at a  meeting for the purpose of discussing school ailairs and seeing thai-  the right people are elected to manage the' schools. But it seems that  the majority will not even-bother to  do this. It is fortunate for our rising generation that there are- to be  found in our rural districts a few  men and women who are alive ,to the  advantage of ��������� education, but it is at  the same time a gross injustice on  the part of "the ratepayers when they  will not even lend a helping hand to  tbe     few. If     indifferent parents  would tube the trouble to think what  a stupid set of men and women their  children would make if they did not  have schooling when they arc young,  ���������we believe^they would awaken to thc  advantages of od-.catio:i  and do their  share  of the  work, necessary  to   !'*'  mote the cause. _,.
