Certain representatious arefloating arouud the city to the effect tliat the work was fiuished ia oue day to save a little expense to the coiinty, but such statemenla are manufacturad out of whole cloth by some unprincipled person. The board was called to order and roll called by the clcrk, all supervisors miswering to thelr naines exoept Osborn, of Sharon, and Burch of Manchester, who appeared later in the day. Patrick O'Hearn was chosen chairuian pro tem, and the board took a recess until at ..¦-¦i., urnui; % iin-ii in in llllsioll Hm democratie inembcrs of the board nomin.-itfil candldates for the ehair and the representativo to Lansing.
