OUR LOCAL BOARD ELECTIONS. We are not to have a contested election of our Local Board this year. The opportunity (If getting in the men of their choiee has been given to those who complained that such an opportunity was never within their reach, and the grumblers have apparently confessed that the best men were in office and deserved to continue to hold it. The threatened rush for nomination papers ended in smoke the town has been spared the expense of an election; there has been no excitement, except perhaps a slight quiver on the part of one or two out- 1 going lioardsmen who fancied that there might be some combinaiion against them; and an easy task lies before Mr Roderick. Six of the retiring members will resume their seats Mr Jenkins, we regret to find, follows the exam- ple of Mr Conway and retires, and in them the town loses two representatives eminently qua- lified for the posts they vacate and whose con- scientious discharge of duties entitles them to the thanks of the community; and two new members wiU now bo placed in the responsi- bilities of office for the next three years. It must be gratifying to the re-elected members to find that their actions have been satisfactory and are appreciated; and that any little growl- ing that may have been heard against the Board had no substantial cause or meaning, but was rather an assertion of the English- man's privilege to grumble. The man who could please everybody was never yet created, and never will be; and the Board, bearing that in mind, will, we hope, continue an car- nest course of usefulness, carefully avoiding the extremes of reckless expenditure on the one hand and a ridiculous, penny-wise pound- foolish, false economy on the other.
