At freauent intervals in times
past Lafe Caples has taken in and
aided a fellow who gave his name
as "Kinrie Collins." The man
would do odd chores, cut wood and
the like, for his keep: then would
depart for some other portion of the I
world. I
A few weeks atro lie came to the
city and at otice went to Mr.
Caples' home. He was taken in
as usual
Monday eveuintr as Mr. Caples
was reading beside his table Collins
camd in and, before lie could de
fend himself the aged mau was
badly beaten atout the had and
elsewhere he bore material wounds.
His watch (which was a very nice
oae) was stolen by this man Collins,
it is asserted and the thief was
not to be found.
William Canles. a son. was up
with his father nearly all the night
and a "tracer" was at once sent
out for the arrest of Collins. It is
to be hoped that he will be apprehended.
Oh, Mc! Oh, My!
The city election will take place
in St, Johns next April, and already
the political pot is leginniug to
simmer quietly, but will increuse
from now on. "Fattier" B. II.
Downs is the only one mentioned
for mayor, outside of W. II. King, 1
incumbent, "Fattier Downs" is al
ways present at all council meet
ings, and is a sort of encyclopedia
of municipal information on every
subject that comes up. It is not
known whether Mayor King will
be a candidate for re-election or
not. W. h. Thorndyke is con
sidered a candidate for recorder,
although he has been mentioned for
mayor. Willis Moxon also is being
mentioned for recorder, as also is
E. C. Hurlburt. Recorder Hanks
will likely Ik a candidate for re
election. None of the councilmeu
have said whether they want an
other term or not, but it is under
stood that Councilman J. H. Shields'
is on a still hunt for the mayors
job. There promises to be a warm
contest, and at least two tickets
will surely be in the field. Port
