WhileThe Courier has made the con
test for mayor a feature, it has enjoyed
bo rarer occasion to observe the political
than it enjoys at present. The mo
lt will be a matter of news to some to
learn that Councilman Young is a can
didate for mayor in earnest, and not in
the interest of any one else, as has been
shyly intimated. There are those who
contend that Mr. Young will be content
with a third term in the council, but
this is not true if Mr. Youngs own
statement to The Courier can be relied
upon. Said Mr. Young: ''If the Craw
ford county system is to be used next
spring I will be a candidate for mayor."
And why should not' Dick be a candi
date for mayor? It is everybody s fight
and no man knows what his chances are
at present. Dick has all kinds of
friends, and if he sticks to his present
intentions there is no telling where he
will haul up. It he withdraws from
the contest, however, he may expect a
visitation from the righteous wrath of
bis many friends.

be classed as candidates, the former be

In accordance with the advice of The
Courier, the city republican central com
mittee held a special meeting and again
adopted the Crawford county system.
During the meeting Chairman L. L. E.
Stewart charged that quite a number of
demo-pops are holding positions under
the present administration, and insisted
that republicans should bo given their
places. If Mr. Stewarts statements
areas well founded as he claims them to
be, he is fully justified in making tho
kick which he did. The amendments
needed to tho Crawford system have
before been suggested by this paper.
