SEVERAL ASPIRANTS EXPECTED
TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Young Business Man Ha Llvsd in

Takes Interest In City '
It la probable that definite an
nouncements will be made this week
by aspirant for tbo mayoralty to
ucceed George C. Brownell and for
membership In tho city council to
succeed Vtlllam AndreAen, first
ward, M. C- Strickland, second ward,
.and Jacob Michel , third ward. The
Incumbent have announced that they
will not be candidate for reelection.
Mayor Ilrownell give a his reason
for not offering; again, although he
has served but one term, the neces
sity for him to give all his attention
to hi law practice. There Is no
question that the duties of the may
oralty have greatly Interfered with
his professional work, and while he
has given his time cheerfully, and Is
credited with having made a remark
able record, the mayor feels that an
other should make the sacrifice the
Counollman Olv Reasons,
Mr. Andresen, who Is president of
the council, and Dr. Strickland and
Mr. Mlchels give tho same reasons
for declining to be candidates to
succeed themselves as Mayor Brown
ell. Mr. Andresen haa been a mem
ber of the council for six years, and
feel that he haa served his city long
enough in. the ouncll.
Gordon R. Hayes, formerly state
senator and county judge. Is being
urged to mak the race for mayor,
but hat not made any definite an
nouncement. Frank Buacfc had beeu
mentioned for the office, but he
positively announced last week that
he would not be a candidate at th
coming election. Mortimer Latourette,
also mentioned for the place, said
Saturday thnt he had not given the
matter serious consideration.
No candidate have announced for
the council In the first and third
wards to succeod Mr. Andresen and
Mr. Mlchels, and. In fart, none has
been mentioned. F. J. "toote, super
intendent of clt schools, and Harry
R. Draper, member of the firm, of
Huntley Bros, company, have been
mentioned as candldstes In the sec
ond ward. Mr. Tor. has made a
fine record as . superintendent of
schools, and his friends think he
would make even as flne-a record as
a member of the city council.
Draper Haa Strong Following.
Mr. Draper Is not only one of the
heading young business men of the
city, but he haa lived In tho second
ward all his life, and takes 'an active
Interest In civic affairs. It is be
lleved that he eould have been elected
to the council at former elections had
he permitted the use of his name.

In appointing a policeman to patrol

last night when Policeman Green ar

two men standing on the southwest
corner. One threw something sway
