For instance, let us take up the name of George Woods, whom some please to say is not a candidate, and who, per haps, is not. And then select the name of William J. Turner, who has not yet decided whether be will be a candidate for city clerk. But suppose for a minute that these two young stalwartB conclude to make the race. Would they not be a strong pair to draw to? In such an event every other candidate for mayor point of sadness. It is the story of the degeneracy of a nan whose goodness in the first place was suppositional and negative. It had Beyer been tried. His religion was of environment rather than choice. He did not elect to be good or bad. His emotions led him into the ministry and they led him out of it His emotions threw him into love with his wife, when she- was his sweetheart. When she became his wife he fell in love with acother beautiful woman, as though he were not bound. The book ends here but it Theron Ware is alive he lata love with a woman not his wife bow and he will be till finis is written after his same pa stone instead of on aper. The book is on the order of the When Bryan was in Denver his car riage was surrounded by a packed mass of people for blocks. The iolicemen made way for the carriage to move very slowly only by a great effort. Of course all this is known, but the testomonyof eye-witnesses to the throngs which followed him wherever he went, only to touch his coat and hands, is a new evidence of his power over the people. When ho stood in the Brown hotel, the crowd surged by him on both sides. While greeting some one in front of him,frequently the people Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde problems with behind him were eagerly Blinking both the difference that Dr. Jtkyl knew how his hands. When he finally escaped vil Mr. Hyde was whereas Theron is and reached the elevator, the crowd de aaware of his own loathsomeness. It vined his plan and endeavored to get aada like a book, with a Eequel that has a parting sight of him, they shoved so aet been written. that they nearly smothered their idol.who It is a Htoet discouraging book. It merely said "Look out. boys, don't leaves us with an uncommonly poor crowd," with his world-famous smileand epiatoB of human nature and the worst he was taken up by the elevator into ef it k Mr. Frederic proves bis case. Then would Graham lose heavily in the First, Second, Third and Fifth wards, Webster in the Third, Fourth, Fifth and Seventh, Woodward in the First, Second, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh. The First and Second wards particularly would make Woods strong. However, it should be stated that Turner could not detract from City Clerk Bowen to the 6a me degree that Woods would from his opponents. And the basis of this prognostication can be readily perceived. Woods and Turner being young men would prob ably receive the undivided support of the young republicans of the city who, by the way, are destined to be the con trolling factor at a 'not far distant day. Besides, the element which always becomes prejudiced against a man as soon as he holds office, would undoubt edly be divided in a way that would benefit Woods. Now The Courier does not mean to infer that Mr. Woods has a cinch or a walkaway. Far from it. The Courier the good air and elbow-room of an upper is simply viewing him as a "middle man" chamber. Some of those who heard in the event of a close fight among the him said that they were disappointed in other aspirants for mayor. Mr. Woode, his speech, having rend something about on the other hand, has much to fear silver before. from the older element of the republican Although Mr. Bryan addressed the party Being a rising and ambitious crowd as "boys," he took a liberty in you ag fellow, he is viewed with much doing so, for it was made up in equal jealousy and apprehension by this party proportions of men and women. contingent, as they are aware of George's ability to go higher in the political scale once he has been given an impe tus.

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. Barr Parker and Jim Parker need not be classed as candidates, the former be cause he will not enter the fight unless he has a cinch something no man will have this load of poles and the latter because hr is awaie of his weakness, a fact which was fully demonstrated at the -lection last November. To judge from the articles being daily published in the Evening Nnws, we are of the firm belief that that paper would be very indignant if Lincoln or Lancas ter county should receive a federal ap pointment or two, notwithstanding the valuable service rendered McKinley by our people. But then, yon know, the News always was a patriotic pap:r nit. R. Henry Thorpe, the boy orator, will deliver a lecture at the Lansing Decem ber 14. Mr. Thorpe needs no introduc tion nor recommendation, as his prowess as a speaker is too well known. His address will bo devoid of politics and will be of tho most entertaining and in structive character. 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. T. Canon Pea coal, ?5 per ton.
