Source of Comment
It is a source of some remark that
although we are within less than six
weeks of an important city election
there is little or no public discussion of
the fact No names are beiug promin
ently and publicly mentioned in connec
tion with any of the ollices to be filled
on April Cth Is this becnuse no one
cares but the few professional politi
ciaus It ought to be a matter of gener
al interest to the taxpayers and busi
nessmen of the city in fact to every
citizen who 9hall be our officials next
year And it is not too early to begin
to cast about for the right men for the
right places
