An Appointment Made.

It was stated by W.W. Ogilvie, one of the directors of the Montreal transportation company, today that James A. Cuttle had been appointed manager of the company pro tem. at the meeting of the board on Monday. This he explained would remain until confirmed at the annual meeting which would be held in a month.
