vocable and that absolutely nothing can
Induce him to change his mind.

accept a renomtnatlon for the office of

About all a mayor ha the power to do la
to select the chief of police and the mem
bers of the police department, and even
these appointments, have to be confirmed
by the Mty council. There la nothing in
It except abuse and censure. The salary
of the office, which of course Is a minor
consideration, does not pay man's ex

someone else have the worry. I endeavored
to do the best I knew how for the Inter

the- latter will admit that at least I have
given them a cleaner city than they had
for many yefcra before. I am out of the
mayor business and, as far a that goes.

Not for many years has discord been so
rampant In the democratic party of Coun

announcement that he will not under any
circumstances accept a renomination will
not tend to Improve matters. Surface lndl

In the First ward Alderman Younker-
man'a friends are Insisting that he Is en
titled to a renomination, but former Alder
man Charles Huber I being prominently
mentioned now for the democratic nomina

Taunkerman and his friends. In the Second
ward Alderman Maloney was thought to be
safe until a few days ago. but It is said
that a certain element In his party ha the
knife out for him. In the Third ward Al
derman Tinley has announced that he will
not seek a renomination. It was, however,
a foregone conclusion that he would not be
accorded one, owing to the doubts of the
legality -of his quasi residence In that werd.
in the F6urth ward Aldmnan Weaver Is
elated for retirement, but In the Fifth ward
Alderman McMillen appears so far to have
a good show for a renomination. In the
