Saturday, November 2 – 1895
In selecting the new aldermen on Saturday the Conservative caucus adopted the principle of seniority in the City Council.
Mr. John Houlding first entered the Council in November, 1884, and though connected with the West Derby Guardians (of which he has been chairman), and participating in various public movements, has given much time to committee work, especially in relation to the health of the city and the extension of the Corporation hospitals.
Mr. Ephraim Walker joined the City Council at the November elections in 1889. His voice has been rarely heard during the discussions, but his regular attendance at committee meetings has been noticeable.
