From that year, many public-spirited men have given creditable service as mayor, and all must have been unselfish in service, for the office has always been practically an honorary one. The list is as follows: Sydenham Snyder was mayor in 1871; Naaman Merrill in 1872-73; W. C. Kelley, from 1874 to 1877; Joel Brigham during the next three years; Jas. S. Brailev in 1881; L. M.
