money, if the executive committee

to call the members together and as

an eu.ual amount be raised by the
hotels, restaurants and wholesale liq
uor dealers of the town, and then
raise the balance by popular sub
scription. We have been informed

that his life may be scared to enjoy
many like occasions. May it be as

his utmost to make someone else
Tho major has been affectionately

tho progress of that favorite com
