Bonus by-law carried.
The vote on Friday last on the by-law to provide station grounds for the James Bay railway was practically unanimous in favor of the by-law. Out of a total of 102 votes, 97 were for, and only 5 against the bonus. Most of the lady voters in the village deposited their ballots, thus showing that they were imbued with the same spirit of progress enterprise as the men. Mr. Teefy acted as returning officer, Mr. Furey was a scrutineer against the by-law, and Mr. J. H. Sanderson was a scrutineer in favor of the by-law. There were no rejected or spoiled ballots. Reeve Savage and his colleagues in the Council, as well as many other citizens, are to be commended for the energy they put forth in connection with this important matter. And now the railway and the station.
