Mr. D. J. Hesketh failed to make the required Declaration of Qualification within the required limit of time, and his name was therefore withdrawn from the list.

 

In consequence of the fact that the nominations for Reeve and Councillor exceeded the number of offices to be filled, the meeting was adjourned until Monday, January the 7th, 1929, to be decided by ballot at the polls, designated in the bylaw, prepared for that purpose.
