'. The election for city officers will take
place Dec. 7. There ia only one candi
date for mayor, the present incumbent.
G. B. Dimick. In the election of coun
cilmen there will be some contests, but
none very spirited.
In the first ward there are two candi
dates, Walter Little and II . E . Straight.
Dr. Poell retires from this ward. In
the second ward there are two council
men to be elected and there are four
aspirants to the office. They are Mark
Chapmanaud W. A. White, who are
candidates for the seat of M. Pheister,
retired, and A. KnaDD aud Haurv Mi-
ley who are candidates for the seat of
0. G. (Huntley, who retires.
In the third toard there is onlvone
candidate, Mat Justin, the painter. No
politics has baen injected into the city
election and the prospects are that a
very lixht vote will be polled. It is net
probable that any chaises will be made i
m eitoer ine ponce iorce or in tne jus
tice judge, or city recorder's office, no
matter-who is elected.
The present city treasurer is F. J.
Meyers, and he will succeed himself

In an issue of the Courier of two,

Cooke was defeated for the office of
Sheriff some two yeaia ago. This wa
an error on the part of the 1 w fitter
Mr. Cooke was not defeated at thtt
time, Ed Jack being the Democratic
candidate for sheriff in stead of Mr.
Cooke. Mr. Cooke did campaigning for
Jack and it was this tact that led to the
Affairs at Capitol of the County.
