The POSTMASTER GENERAL (Hon. Wm. Mulock).

The Gilmour post office has been kept by Mr. Thomas Ricketts, the postmaster, in a public hotel, or boarding house, where liquor was sold. This was considered an unsuitable place and the office was removed. In Its removal to a more desirable location, it became necessary to appoint another person to the postmastership, and Mr. Ricketts ceased therefore to be postmaster.
There were no charges against the postmaster personally or against the management of the office apart from the objections to its situation.
An investigation as to the management of the office was not considered necessary, as the information came from a source that was regarded as thoroughly reliable.
