"This is the day that the old board of township trustees turned over their offices to the new board. The members of both boards were in town bright and early and the settlements progressed satisfactorily all the morning. There had been talk of Messrs Dunkle and Hampton attempting to hold on to their offices but the talk was groundless. They acted as gentlemen and surrendered their papers with all the courtesy possible. The retiring board has been an exceptionally efficient one. Its work has been marked by harmony and practicability in all lines of work. There had scarcely been a jar in any township in this county and program has been marked along all lines. The men composing the board were gentlemen and business men. The new board is one that promises to worthily sustain the reputation of its predecessor."
