REDCAR LOCAL BOARD
ELECTION OF MEMBERS.
The election of the three persons to fill the vacancies caused by the retirement of Messrs Johnston, Cowl, and Richardson; was concluded this morning, when the voting papers were examined, with the following result, the first three been duly elected.
John Holton Webster 140
John Cowl 110
Richard Pearson Johnson 92
Thomas Spencer Kean 78
James Johnson 65
James Heaton Bennett, M. D. 22
Henry Moore 17
It may be necessary to state that. Dr Bennett and Mr Moore gave notice of withdrawal to the Chairman of the Board, but too late to prevent their names from appearing on the voting papers. The fact was generally known, however, which accounts for the small number of votes being recorded in their favour.
