consul at Singapore, says: "While at

The time is nearly hero for a change

like very much to see Mr. T. C. Hacker

Hum another has been loyal and ser
viceable to tho republican party during

C. Hacker. For years a successful busi
ness man, and that is one requisite of
an official, always a staunch advocate
of iiMiiililiciinisin. uiirichl. of cood ic-
puto, with a host of friends in town
and country, no better man can be
found. It may have become a reproach
in this community that tho office
slinitlil seek the man, but wo believe
that the principle is good, and theie's
a good chance to start with Hacker.
