Mr. Hushes, In acceding to the seat
over wliieli there was so determined a

address, teise and to the point. He
"Cientlomen, I assure you I appreci
ate the honor of being called to the
presidency of tlv Carbondalo hoard of
education. I want to state, further,
that this election is unconditional:
there iik no string;. attached to it, and
this I would have the public to under
stand. "If I am to be president," said Mr.
Unfiles with greater earnestness, "I
am going to be president in every sense
of the word. In the administration of
my duties I will aim to be as careful
and as hoiusl as I can be. 1 will ov
pect the courtesy that is due the presiding-
officer, nnd (ho memhers, are as

"I want to iidd." said Mr. Hughes
with notable emphasis, "that tliero will

Mr. Kerwin, as in t lie case or Presi

The' Inst step in tho programme to

This completed the organization of
the hoard, and thus was completed the
love feast that was decided upon
among the members since Monday

divided against each other.
At the suggestion of President
Hughes the salaries of the ofliucs of

Mr. Gallagher moved that their com

was agreed to by Mr, Gallaghei, The
office of secretary was considered first,
the board voting to fix the salary tho

The treasurership followed. All of

MAIL MEN IN SHIRT WAISTS.
Carriers of Carbondalo Office Make
Their Bow with the New Idea of
The resident." of Carbondnl" were
given tin opportunity yesterday to
comment on and admit" tlio Carbon

The mall men made their bow in
tho new idea of summer dress yester
day afternoon and some one was mean
enough to say "and it rained tho
same day.'' Kven though it did rain,
tho distui banc j of tho elements could
not be laid against the new attire of
tlio carriers for their "shirt waists"
are tar fiom that noisy pattern that
might set up a commotion in the heav
ens. On the contrary the patterns
weio rpiite genteel, and on this point
every one seemed to agree.
The selection of tlio pattern which
is dull blue. Is quite becoming to the
acknowledged modesty of the Carbon
dalo carriers, who are prone to fleo
fiom compliment which they did yo;-
terday, for everywhoie they were
greeted with flattering compliments on
thoir cool anil sensible looking dross.
The carriers proved sort, of pace
makers ir. the race of fashion, for soon
after they made their appearance, tho
shir waist mac was quite a familiar
flguro on Main street. The young men
of the town who had purchased shirt
waists, but who wore timorous about
provoking more than ordinary com
ment by appearing as tho first In tho
new dress, came from all sides when
the mail carriers paved tlio way, and
during the afternoon and evening tho

WHEN WILL THE
STREETS BE NAMED?
This Is a Question Thnt Is Puzzling
nnd Mnyhnp Worrying Postmaster
Thomas nnd Those Residents Who
Are Deprived of Tree Mail Dcllv
cry Because of Neglect to Estab
lish a System of Streets.
When will the unnamed streets of
Carbonilalo and the numberless houses
thereon bo given a name and number?
This is something over which Post
master Thomas Is closely pondering
these warm June days, and this same
(Iticstlon Is worrying the thousand or
more residents of Carbonihile who are
denied the ndvnntngeit of free mall de
livery simply because iheic Is no tec
ognlzed system of streets or house
numbering In Cat-hondal".
The Tribune called attention to this
curl his condition several weeks ago
and pointed out that the absence of
this system was the only circumstance
that stood In tho way of Carbondalo
being allowed a mounted mall carrier,
to which It has long hcon entitled. The
matter was taken up, at tho time, by
one or two of the councllmen and the
ptomlse was given that there would
be a remedy forthcoming and a. satis
factory street system would bo ar
ranged and would bo put In operation.
This, wns a number of weeks ago and
at a seemingly opportune time just
before tlio joint streets, bridges and
sewers committee made Its annual in
spection of the streets of the city. The
recommendations of that committee
have been made and adopted by coun
cils, but there wasn't a reference to
the contemplated street naming or
house numbering. Nor has there boon
anything done since that time. When
this comniittce'srecommondations came
up for concurrence In common coun
cil, Mr. l.oftus inquired if It contained
any provision or recommendation for a
street system. Tho hope sprung up
then that common council would take
somi action, but after only a momen
tary discussion tho matter was dis
missed. Attention Is called anew to the ne
glect of councils to provide for this
greatly needed system of streets be
cause of the approaching close of the
fiscal year, tho beginning of July, when
the postal department considers ap
pioprlatinns for tho coming year. Cur
bondale's light to the appropriation
i'01 a mounted carrier has never been
questioned by the. government author
ities; or the contrary, it has boon con
ceded and acknowledged, but when
ever it was lequested, the department
simply pointed out tho circumstance
that tin- city with its iri.nno inhabit
ants, bad not even a semblance of a
stieol system, and Postmaster Thomas
v as forced to silonco and could only
shake his head that this was too true.
Tlio pnstofllco here has a surplus
each month, which is forwarded to the
Tailed Stales treasurer to help moot
the expenses of some other depart
ment, while its rightful place is here.
In Carbondalo, wheie it could ho used
in paying for tlio mounted carrier, who
is kept iiwnv because, for reasons that
canno; be discovered, councils hesltati
to establish the stree' systei: which
is an impeiative necessity in tho econ
omy of an- city, particularly one of
over 1P,,iW inhabitants tlio population
An Instance of how a large number
of lcsidiutK are being discriminated

stance that nearly a thousand peoplo

shut off fiom fre delivery, being ro
quliei: to come to tli post office daily

would be adequate to bring the mail
service in this city up to the highest
ofllelonoy. in the meantime, while
councils keep dormant on this arrange

residtnts who are being discriminated

the exorcise of patience, until the long
awaited relief makes its appearance.

THE NEWS IN BRIEF.
Mrs. Kate McNulty, of the West

yesterday. She was running about
from place to place on Main street,
first to the mayor's oflicc, then to a
physician's office, seeking aid for her
child, who, It will bo recalled, was
discharged from Emergency hospital
a, few days ago, after having success
fully been treated for an Infected
wound which endangered the eyesight
of tho little one. It appears that af
ter the child was taken from the hos
pital by her mother, the wound which
was almost healed was not given
proper attention, and infection again
sot in. Tho child's condition is such
that it may be necessary to resort to
hospital treatment again.
