The yearly selection of municipal offlcers has been gone tkrough with once again, and the result is quite sntisfactory to 8ome and quite the reverse to others. The republicana placed in nomination an exceptlonally good ticket, and our democratie breturen not to be outdone did the same thing. The resu t was that the people quite lnrgely threwaside party aftiliations and voted nccordlng to their likes or dislikes, veiy many joining in with the popular tide as they judssed it to be running. One thing Iscertain, the attempt of a "new party" to step in and díctate to the old parties what men they should nominateforofflce,and whatcourse they should pursue, waseminentlyunsuccessful. This paper is more fully convinced than ever before that the place for reform is m the preüminary meetings of the old parties. Good people sliould attend the caucuses and see that the right sort of men are nominated. It they will not do that, they should not growl at camlidates put up or measures adopted. "Keform" should come from wiihin the old parties, not from a coterie of dissatistied ones who band together to destroy the old oigan zations that have stood for so many years.
