He is a Re ­ publican, but thoroughly independent, , mid he numbers among his friends 1 both the Republican and Democratic members of the board. His record as supervisor Is without a flaw, and he has been regular in his attendance at all sessions. The nomination has been received with satisfaction all over the district by Republicans a«d Democrats alike, who applaud the good judgment of the party in making such a selec­ tion.
