Horrlgan, a young democrat of ability,
is contesting with Mr. Cosgrave for the
police Judgeship, but his hopes of elec
tion are based on nothing tangible and
in fact neither he nor any of the fu
sion candidates on the city ticket have
any chance of election. In the Fourth,
Fifth, Sixth and Seventh wards the
republican councllmanlc candidates,
while opposed by men against whose
character and fitness there is practl-
cally nothing to be said, have a walk
away. Mr. Bishop in the Fourth is a
much more able man than his un
known opponent, and Is so much better
equipped to perform good service that
not the least hope exists for Mr.
Keith. In the Fifth and Seventh
Councilman Frampton and Lyman are
seeking re-election. Both have made
excellent representatives In the city
governing body, and with their expe
rience and knowledge of affairs are In
a much better position to do good -service
than their opponents. In the
Sixth, in Lee J. Dunn, the republicans
present the sort of a man the people
of Lincoln desire to see In' the council,
a business man of property and experi
ence. In the First ward M. D. Clary, the
republican nominee. Is confronted with
Councilman Malone, who is reeking a
third term. Mr. Malone's record as a
councilman Is so 'well known that It
seed not be commented upon. Mr.
Clary ls"a business man with a follow
ing sufficiently large to justify the be
lief that he will be elected. In the
Third ward George H. Moore, the re
publican nominee, is having opposition
in the person of Horace F. Bishop, a
young attorney. Every indication
points to the election of Mr. Moore. He
Is a big, stalwart Burlington engineer,
a man very popular among his fellow
workmen and influential in labor cir
cles. He has been very active In re
publican politics, and he will take the
office with but one pledge, to do his
best for the Interests of his ward. In
the Second C. E. "Wilkinson, republi
can, nnd Jacob H. North, democrat,
are the contestants. Both are capable
genDemen, but there Is no reason why
any republican should decline to vote
for Mr. Wilkinson. He is a clean and
able man, who can be depended upon
not to co-operate with any faction or
gang In opposition to the city's best

LIFE'S MAZY WHIRL
The season of fasting and penitence
is nearing the end, sorrow and sighing
will flee away with the setting of to
day's sun, and tomorrow will bring joy
and gladness, and Easter carols, and
resurrection lillles. Never before was
there such a display of lovely blooms
for Easter, as a visit to the florists'
shops will prove. First there are the
lillles pure and white, and fragrant,
general favorites at this season. Those
to whom the white flowers are sug
gestive of sadness may revel amid the
colored beauties but they will find" it
hard to choose from so much loveliness.
The lavender, pink, and purple hya
cinths, the yellow daffodils, the bril
liant hued tulips, touched by the
brush of the most skillful of artists,
with the gayest of colors, are all there
to tempt with their reminders of
spring. Then there are the roses and
carnations which are always with us
but which seem to feel glad themselves
that spring is here and to be just a
HtHe brighter than usual on that ac
count. To these are added the cycla
men in Its various shades, and the deli
cate splrea, and many many others, anl
for a setting to all come the palms, tall
and graceful, and the ferns. All of
these will be seen In the churches to-

the choirs and the earnest addresses of
the ministers. Many parties are an
