A complete city ticket was selected by
the democrats at their city convention,
held last Wednesday evening. August
Boettcher presided as chairman and W.
I. Speice was selected secretary. It was
a delegate convention, the delegates
from the wards having been selected the
previous evening. There was but one
candidate for mayor, the present incum
bent, and hie nomination, as well as the
remaining candidates on the ticket, was
made by acclamation. Mr. Held wes
not present at the time the nomination
was made, but he appeared in a few mo
ments und thanked the convention fur
the honor. It was his desire to serve a
second term, but in accepting the honor
he said he wonld use his best efforts for
the interests of the city. The remain
der of the ticket, all of whom are at pres
ent incumbents is as follows: Police
judge, Win. O'Brien; city clerk, Win.
Becker; treasurer, Walter Boettcher;
water commissioner, P. J. Mc
Caffrey; engineer, Charles Wurdeman.
In the selection of councilmen, butoneof
the present incumbents, Lionis Drunken,
who represents the First ward, was re
nominated. S. J. Kyan was not a candi
date for re-election in the Second ward
aud the delegates from that ward select
ed Win. Kurt. George Willard in the
Third ward positively declined another
term, and Charles W. Freeman was then
nominated. Iu the Fourth ward consi
derable time was spent selecting a man
to run against George Winslow, but fin
ally the delegates named Gus Prieb.
For member of the board of education
there were three names before the con
vention, Ijouia Lachnit. A. F. Plagc
manii aud Carl llhode. The two latter
were withdrawn and Mr. Lachnit was
the unanimous choice of the convention.
Aftor completing the ticket the follow
ing ,-"i,trai committee was named: Jer
ry drug, chairman: Fred Plath, Mark
Burke. G. B. Speice and G. W PbillipB.
Routine business was about all that
was transacted at the council meeting
Friday evening, but one of the com
munications before them was a request
for an increase in salary by the city
clerk. During the last few years the
work has become much heavier and City
Clerk Becker thinks he should have a
raise to 6iOU a year. And in this con
nection, the council acted favorably up
on the request of Water Commissioner
McCaffrey, raising his salary to $70 per
month. The bill of Win. Cornelius for
?"Ji) for legal services iu connection with
the chemical engine was one of those al-1
lowed. Friday, March 24, being the
last day for receiving bids for the new
chemical engine, the council adjourned
to that time, when the bids will be con
sidered. It is quite probable that the
clerks and judges of election for the
city election April I will be named lit
