This was in 1609, when he set out -to find a northwest passage and discovered the bud s n river instead. Thus the old trunk antedates and excels in interest the numer ous heirlooms reputed to have come over in the Mayflower. The present owner, Egbert E.

Selleck, Mr. Audrew J. iieatli received the next largest uumber of votes to Mr. Melville E. Mead, who was chosen, and accepted the honor extended to him. The spirited rivalry of the several candidates gave the contest quite an air and semblaueo of a political caucus.
