As the eity election will soon be here
It behooves our citizens to look around and
select men who will when elected have
the Interests of tlie city at heart good.
common sense business men who will con
duct the business of the people as they
would their own. The city need a Coun
cil composed of liberal, progressive men
who will see that our sf reets, alleys, side
walks, etc.. are not neglected, and at the
same time will not be too prodigal In tlie
use ot tin people's money. Our outgoing
Mayor, as we have before said, made a
most excellent officer, and we are sorry
(hat tvec-in not have his services far at least
another term ; for when we get a good
officer It Is well enough to press him
Into tlie service as long as he can be kept
there . with his own consent. One man
held tlie position of -Mayor ot Providence.
R. I., for sixteen consecutive terms, and
would have been nenlti honored with the
position had he not positively declined
Ettt as Mavor Chirk can not serve again.
as li expects to be absenf oiuch1 of the
time during "the coming year, we 'must
fill his place with another. V There are
a number of citizens who would grace the
position, all of whom, however, after br
ing .interviewed, as we are informed.
positively refuse to serve. Among tlie
names mentioned is tlat of Judge Black
burn, a man specially qualified, by his
legal attainments, good solid Judgment,
and an uiitimitel amount of nerve to
stand for his conrktons of rlj-ht, to fiil
the people. The Judge will doubtless
objict to receiving tlie r,omlnatlotit but as
a gotid. loyal citizen lie sliould not ortjit
when his services are demanded. As to
the pBtee 'oL Recorder s Tlie present In-
cttmpent desires to be reelected, and we
ran say that our greatest objection to him
Is that lie belongs to tbe party of iion-pro-
gresston a pnrty tlwt lias always stood
In the way ot every iiuportaut measure
calculated to Improve our country and
better the condition of the poor of this
Nation. Mr. Halter Intends to do. tlie
fair tiling, and ho has attended to his dit
ties during the term of office now about
closed, faithfully, and If tlie Republicans
can not pat up a better man, we shall not
grieve to any alarming extent If lie socce d
himself. But we do not wish to be eon
sldered as acknowledging for a moment
that we have not In toe Republican ranks
men who would not fill the office with
equal honesty and capability. But tt is
a fact that we sometime tail to pat our
best men forward, because of an unwill
ingness, sometimes, on tbe part of suitable
candidates to jooaoe to the front. We nave
no reason to complain of such a state of
aSalrsjin this occasion, as there are sever
al gentlemen, well -qua! nee to nil toe
office, 'who have expressed themselves
; willing to serve It nominated and elected.

This being the case, and as Mr. Hnnt is
a candidate for re-election, there possibly
will be no serious opposition to bis nom
ination in the Republican. CouventlMi.
As to the Treasurer we are not prepared
to say whether Frank Redfleld Is a can
didate for re-election or not. One thine
we know is that he has made a eood officer,
and we Suppose if he desires tt he may ob
tain the nomination, although we have
heard hi name mentioned in connection
with the office of Councilman from the
First Ward, lie will fill the bill in either
position. We have heard tlie names of
several eetitlemen named In connection
with the office ot Cooiictlmen. but as tins
matter has not been as thoroughly canvass
ed as that ot the city officers, we refrain
from mention. If the Republican party
wish to sneered it must put up its best
men. The general leeiing seems to oe.
we want com!, active, business men in the
City Council honest men, of good sound
judgment, who will do the square thing
tor our citiaens.reganlless ot political bias.
And thU being the feeling we ttitist put

On Friday last, at Halsey In this county.
a boy named Thompson, aged about 15,
shot at Mr. W. II. Gaston, under the fol
lowing clrcumstnnees, as related to us :
Yontig Thompson hail been attending the
district school over which Mr. Gaston pre
sided as teaclier. It seems that his conduct
h:id been of such a nature that Mr. Gaston
could not tolerate, anil therefore on the
flay in qi estiitn expelled him from tlie
school. Mr. Giton handed Thompson hi
books and fold him to take his departure ;
T homn. in moved a tew steps i toward tlie
door, di ew a pistol, turned and tired at
Mr. Gaston. Some one standing near
Thompson struck his arm down, and the
ball Intended for Gaston entered the floor
of the school room. Mr. Gfon Immedi
ately seized hold of young Thompson, and
succeeded In holding him until the appear
ance of an officer, hut i-ot before Thompson
struck him in the five once or twice with
the revolver, bruising, his features consid
erably. Young Thompson h:id an ex
amination tlve next day. and was held to
answer in the tW sum of $300. which lie
gave and was released from custody.
We really owe Ur.cle Sam" postal boys

us that they have difficulty in reading.

we will discontinue the use of blue paper
