Lanijl.y For the past two jears Mr. Charles B. Davison has held the position of chief engincer of the Ere departnient, and was tendered the compliment of a re-election, in fact the members of the departuient showod their appreciation of hiw services by electing him three times as their chiel', after he had told them he could not acept a re-election. Such a compliment to an officer, especially one who has so many to please, must be gratifying to tbe rocipient, and we feel warranted in stating is highly appreciated by Mr. Davison. Mis private business, however, would not admit o) holding the office longer, and tho declination of the honor, much to the regret of the department and friends, could not be roconsidered. He has been a fuithful nd efficiënt officer, and the department has advanced in efficiency since he has had control of it. The new officers need no coiiiinendation, being too well known among our citizens for that. A committe, consisting of Dr. Willard B. Smith and Chas. B.
