Election of Officers for the Ensuing year -
The Grocers' Protective Association held its annual meeting 
last night at No. 462 Fulton street, 
Mr. C. A. METTLER in the chair, 
Mr. William LODTMAN, Secretary.  

The principal business of the evening was the
election of officers for the ensuing year, in which considerable 
interest was felt, owing to the opposition which had been 
developed against the Secretary, Mr. LODTMAN, during the past 
twelve months.  In the course of the proceedings it was stated 
that a black list of bad-paying customers was being prepared.

The result of the election was as follows:

President, C. A. METTIER,
Vice-Presidents, John TIETJEN and Louis SANDHAUSEN;
Secretary and Agent, William LODTMAN,
Treasurer, D. DETERLING, 
Financial Secretary, John F. TRIBCKEN.

The position of Secretary and Agent, for which there was a close
contest, is a salaried one.  
Mr. LODTMAN was re-elected by one majority.
