MAYORALTY AN ISSUE. 1
The withdrawal of Messrs. Iligjfim
and Elmore 'from the mayoralty eon
test leavet the party, jut a it was
before there was any suggestion of a
campaign. The field is absolutely clear.
The mere fact that two prominent citi
zens have been eomed to retire from
the engag ment upon absolutely person
al grounds, has no bearing upon the
third man upon whom the party shaty
unite for ita chief in the context about
to be waged. The Republicans of As
toria will atajifl by whosoever among
'the able and honest hien of Astoria,
.shall feel at liberty to enter the race
in ita behalf and do him the honor of
electing him. Mr. John T. Ross is the
man wanted and it is hoped he will aTe
.the exact conditions confronting th
party and take the helm in the matter,
f to ie quick and general feli-f of he
whole community. He is competent, al
- ert arid will lend dignity and weight
to the claims of the party he stands for,
and the mere announcement that ha
will be the standard bearer in the ap-
proaching campaign, will put the op
position to the bad in a brace of min
utes and 'give 'them "to understand the
.real and (Lfiberate purpose of the Re
publicans to take charge of tliis city and
,to nandle it in a resourceful and broad
minded way to the good of ita last cit
izen and his lat demand for decent and
wholesome administration. ,
Now they are almnt to put on a Fed
era Train for Uie use of the President
of the United States on his official tours
about the country. All the grat lines

esablishment of the new train and to its

splendid idea and one that will add dig
nity to the jKst anil solve t long con
tested issue of who shall bear the ex
panse of his itinerants throughout the
nation. It is not rirlit that the Chief
Executive of thi-' tremendous Covern

with the jieoplei to acquaint hims!3f
with their m-tU and place Iiimsplf en
