Jacksonville has a new acting postmaster, as Louis Ulrich, present postmaster whose term expired last June and who has been holding over until his successor is appointed, received a telegram last night from the post office department at Washington, accepting his resignation and announcing the appointment of John F. Miller to be acting postmaster until the appointment of a permanent postmaster is made. The change takes place Monday, May 1.

... The examination of the half dozen Jacksonville aspirants for the county seat post office was held some time ago, but no appointment has yet been made of Mr. Ulrich’s permanent successor, because the list of eligibles has not been reported by the civil service commission. The fact that John F. Miller is one of the candidates for the appointment, has been appointed acting postmaster, has the other candidates guessing.
